Thursday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE


Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- There's nothing like home for the Milwaukee Bucks. Michael Redd had 27 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists as the Bucks snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 100-86 last night in Milwaukee. Orlando came into the game with the NBA-best road record at 11-2. The Bucks improved their home record to 7-2.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marcus Landry scored 16 points, Brian Butch added 14 and Trevon Hughes had 12, as Wisconsin beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee 61-39 in men's college basketball in Milwaukee last night. The Badgers now have beaten the Panthers in their last 15 meetings. The Badgers (7-2) bounced back after having their 28-game home winning streak snapped by Marquette last Saturday.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Brett Favre thankfully isn't dropping any retirement hints at this point in the Green Bay Packer season. But he offered some insight yesterday into the thought process behind his decision to return for this season. For one thing, he realized the defense was most effective in the string of four wins at the end of last season, and he knew at some point that if the offense could improve, this season could be a lot of fun. And he was right.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- It's a common coaching dilemma that every team seems to handle differently. With the Green Bay Packers already headed for the playoffs, will coach Mike McCarthy start resting veteran players down the stretch? The coach says the big thing for the team now is trying to improve to a 12-2 record by beating the Rams in St. Louis Sunday. But he also says resting veterans is always a possibility as part of adjustments made on a weekly basis to have the team at top strength.
