MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Bucks final preseason game at the Bradley Center was more of a slip-and-slide than a basketball game. Referees were forced to cancel the game in the first quarter after players were losing traction on the new floor. Bucks executive vice president of business operations John Steinmiller says they will investigate and correct the issue immediately. He adds that the old floor is still available and, if the league permits, would fall back on that.

Dennis Schutz played just a half worth of football in Friday's WIAA Division 4 Level 1 playoff contest. But in just one half Schutz did as much as running backs do in a single game if at all ever. In a record performance for one half Schutz rushed for 275 yards on 16 carries and scored five touchdowns in a 51-0 Ellsworth romp. EHS all but ended the game in the second quarter scoring 26 points for 39-0 halftime advantage.
MADISON - Governor Scott Walker says he'll need another week, and maybe more, before he decides whether to let the Menominee tribe build a casino in Kenosha. Walker was planning to announce his decision today, after meeting with tribal officials and developers from the Hard Rock chain on Wednesday. After an appearance in Milwaukee this afternoon, Walker said there was a substantial amount of data presented to him -- and he needs more time to digest it all. Menominee chairman Craig Corn said it positively speaks volumes about Walker's leadershi
Brett Favre said it was flattering that the Saint Louis Rams apparently wanted him to be their quarterback but he has no plays of returning to the game. But the 44-year-old Packers' legend told WSPZ Radio in Washington he does not believe he can physically compete. Favre also said he was starting to worry about the effects of the concussions he received during his 20-year NFL career -- 16 of those years in Green Bay where he won a Super Bowl title and three league MVP awards. He said he does not remember one of his daughters playing youth

Ellsworth's star running back Dennis Schutz said after last week's win over Prescott that's the Panthers perfect regular season wasn't something that would be reflected on until after the season is over with. "It's a humbling feeling to be sure," Schbutz said. "But I don't think it will sink in until after the season. We want to keep going 1-0 each week until it's over with." Brett Bielema's old mantra of being 1-0 each week is a good rule of thumb for playoffs teams, especially for Pierce County's three playoff squad as the postseason begins tonight. 9-0 Ellsworth has the No.
Prescott, Plum City and Spring Valley's prep volleyball teams were all beaten Thursday night in WIAA regional semifinal matches brining their respective seasons to a conclusion. Prescott played a close match with top-seeded Osceola at Osceola in Division 2. After dropping games one and two 20-25 and 23-25, the Cardinals came back to win the third game 25-23.

Prescott High School head volleyball coach Patti Tulip hopes the Cardinals' rematch with Osceola in tonight's WIAA Division 2 regional seminfal will be different, if nothing else but the final outcome. The Chieftains beat PHS 3-1 at Prescott in late September on their way to the Middle Border Conference championship. Prescott won the first game but lost a close second game and then were beaten soundly in games three and four. "We were pretty spent emotionally at the time and in the match itself after game two," Tulip said.
