Thursday: WI Sports Headlines

Here is the latest Wisconsin sports from The AP

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says it's obvious his team didn't play to its potential in Sunday's overtime loss to the New York Giants in the NFC championship game. Now it's time to figure out why -- and what changes the Packers can make to ensure that it doesn't happen again. McCarthy held his season-ending news conference yesterday in Green Bay. He says the whole off-season will be based on determining what changes can help the team do better.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- With the postseason over for the Packers, coach Mike McCarthy says he expects to resume talks with the team on a contract extension. He's entering the final year of a three-year contract, and the team would like to lock him into a long-term deal.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Indiana Pacers take on the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center tonight. The Bucks are coming off a loss Tuesday night to one of the NBA's hottest teams, the Phoenix Suns. The Pacers lost to the Bulls in Chicago last night.

LOUISVILLE (AP) -- Angel McCoughtry scored 28 points and converted a four-point play in the final minutes to lead Louisville to a 79-69 women's Big East basketball victory over Marquette in Louisville last night. The Cardinals led 72-66 when McCoughtry hit a 3-pointer from the corner and was fouled on the play by Angel Robinson. McCoughtry's free throw made it 76-66 with 2:13 to play.
