Hawks wrap up regular season, beat Bucks 111-103
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Mike Scott scored 17 points and the Atlanta Hawks ended the regular season with a 111-103 win Wednesday over the Bucks, hours after Milwaukee owner Herb Kohl announced he was selling his team.
Mike Muscala added 15 for the Hawks, who rallied from a 12-point deficit in the first half.
Atlanta is locked into the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and a first-round date with the Indiana Pacers. Scott started for forward Paul Millsap, who was rested to get ready for the postseason.
Brandon Knight scored 31 points to lead the Bucks, who finished an NBA-worst 15-67.
Milwaukee's dismal season is over, though there is more certainty about the team's future after the prospective new owners said they wanted to build a new arena in the city.
Bucks owner Herb Kohl reaches deal to sell team
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Bucks owner Herb Kohl has reached a deal to sell the franchise to New York investment firm executives Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens.
Kohl announced the deal Wednesday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center hours before the team was to play its final game of a dismal season. With the worst record in the NBA, Milwaukee is in position for a high draft pick.
Kohl is a former U.S. senator who has owned the team since 1985. Efforts to find new investors ramped up this year.
Kohl has made it a priority to find owners or investors who will keep the franchise in Milwaukee. He's also spoken for years about the need to upgrade or replace the Bradley Center, the team's downtown home which opened in 1988.
Backup QB Matt Flynn returns to Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Packers have reached a deal to bring back backup quarterback Matt Flynn, who stabilized the position after starter Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury last season.
Flynn's agent, Bill Johnson, confirmed the two sides had agreed to terms. Details were not announced.
Flynn threw for 1,146 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions in five games in 2013 with Green Bay, including four starts. Flynn helped lead the Packers to two December victories following a five-game winless kid coinciding with Rodgers' injury.
Flynn also spent time with the Raiders and Bills last season before returning to Green Bay, which drafted him in the seventh round in 2008. ESPN and NFL Network first reported Flynn's signing.
The Packers also have Scott Tolzien behind Rodgers and Flynn at quarterback.
Wojo hopes underclassmen will stick with Marquette
MILWAUKEE (AP) - New Marquette basketball coach Steve Wojciechowski says he thinks the underclassmen that he inherited will all stay with the program.
Wojciechowski spoke to reporters Tuesday night before a team banquet. He says he told players he wanted to develop a relationship, and to see where it led. The former Duke assistant says it's a fresh start for the Golden Eagles two weeks after he took over for Buzz Williams.
Wojciechowski says he is also still working on incoming recruits who had committed before Williams left to take the job at Virginia Tech.
Among the recruits, forward Sandy Cohen, of Seymour, Wis., has said he will honor his commitment to the Golden Eagles, though guard Ahmed Hill, of Augusta, Ga., has said he will weigh his options.
