Behind the Buck Pass: A Milwaukee Bucks Blog

The Behind the Buck Pass team is dedicated to providing thorough, and often lighthearted, coverage and commentary of every angle of Milwaukee basketball. On-court or off, in-season or out, the BtBP staff will keep you up to speed on everything you need (and oftentimes don’t need) to know about the Bucks.

An average 18-year-old broadcasting student in Wisconsin with a passion for writing and broadcasting and of course for Wisconsin sports. Been a Bucks since the big 3 days of the late 90′s-early 2000′s and has experienced the ups an downs of the team. Brandon Jennings apologist and one of the biggest supporters for Tobias Harris. Hope you enjoy reading my average articles on a mediocre team.

Alex Skov – Staff Writer (Twitter: @AJSkov)

I became fascinated with the city of Milwaukee during senior year of college and haven’t gotten over it. So far, my Mass Media degree is great wallpaper, but I run the basketball blog Beats, Dimes & Drives. I empathize with kids who sustain broken bones from accidents involving pets.
