Wednesday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers chairman Bob Harlan says he sees great things coming for the team with general manager Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy leading the way. In fact, he says the Packers have their best one-two football punch since Ron Wolf and Mike Holmgren. So Harlan says he's hoping to get both men signed to long-term contract extensions before he turns over the organization to his successor, Mark Murphy, after the season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre doesn't want a little thing like being honored as Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year to interfere with practice. The Packers quarterback went to New York for last night's ceremony, and coach Mike McCarthy says Favre wants to be back for practice today. But the coach says the medical staff wants to hold Favre out of practice until tomorrow to allow his bruised right elbow and separated left shoulder more time to heal.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks opened their West Coast road trip with a victory over the Clippers in Los Angeles that snapped a four-game losing streak. Michael Redd scored 10 of his 25 points in the closing minutes to help the Bucks rally for the 87-78 victory. Andrew Bogut added 19 points and also had 12 rebounds for Milwaukee.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Janese Banks scored 23 points and Wisconsin's defense clamped down in the second half to beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee 79-59 in women's college basketball at Madison last night. The score was tied 32-32 at intermission before the Badgers (4-3) held the Panthers to 29.2 percent shooting the rest of the way.
