Monday Wisconsin Sports UPDATE

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Coach Mike McCarthy was still waiting yesterday. He waited almost a week to learn the identity of his Green Bay Packers' playoff opponent. And now that he knows it's the Seattle Seahawks he's still waiting. He's waiting for the game film tapes, which were delayed due to the fog. McCarthy says he watched Seattle's win over Washington in his office and he's started to see film from the Seahawks' other games this season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- When the Green Bay Packers host the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday, there will be lots of familiar faces. In fact, Packers coach Mike McCarthy there may be no two franchises in the league with more cross-pollination and familiarity than the Packers and Seahawks. Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren coached the Packers from 1992 through '98 and Packers general manager Ted Thompson left Green Bay to serve as Holmgren's top personnel man in Seattle before returning. Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, a Packers sixth-round draft pick in 1998 served as Brett Favre's backup for a time. Favre says Holmgren has meant a lot to his career but the coach has also meant a lot to Seattle and Hasselbeck.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Bucks head to Philadelphia for a game tomorrow after last night's come-from-behind win over Charlotte. Reserve Charlie Bell scored 27 points and Andrew Bogut added 25, including a short hook shot with 19 seconds left, to lead the Bucks to a 93-89 victory over the Bobcats. Bogut's hoop capped Milwaukee's comeback from an eight-point deficit with 3:51 remaining. Mo Williams scored 17 for the Bucks.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Marquette returns home after a loss to West Virginia yesterday. The win was Bob Huggins' biggest as West Virginia's coach. Alex Ruoff and Joe Alexander combined for 38 points as the Mountaineers routed No. 10 Marquette 79-64. It was Huggins' 601st career win, and his most significant since returning to his alma mater this year. Ruoff hit five three-pointers on his way to 19 points. The win snapped Marquette's seven-game winning streak. They host Seton Hall tomorrow.
