Henson helps Bucks rally past Bulls, 78-74
CHICAGO (AP) - John Henson had 25 points, 14 rebounds and six blocked shots, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Chicago Bulls 78-74 on Tuesday night in a matchup of injury-riddled teams trying to break out of a slump.
Brandon Knight added 19 points and 10 rebounds for Milwaukee, which had dropped three of four. O.J. Mayo was just 2 for 12 from the field, but had seven assists and made a couple of big plays in the fourth quarter.
Chicago used only eight players after Joakim Noah was sidelined by a bruised right thigh. Carlos Boozer was the only starter in the lineup from the season opener at Miami.
Mike Dunleavy scored 18 of his 24 points in the second quarter, but the Bulls struggled on offense in the latter part of their fourth loss in five games. Boozer finished with 21 points and 12 rebounds.
Redmon, No. 23 Gonzaga defeats Wisconsin 70-55
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Senior point guard Jazmine Redmon scored 15 points, one shy of her career high, as No. 23 Gonzaga pulled away from Wisconsin in the second half Tuesday night for a 70-55 win.
Danielle Walters scored eight of the final 13 points for Gonzaga (8-1), which won its sixth straight, when she stepped in after Redmon picked up her fourth foul. Walters finished with 10, Sunny Greinacher had 12 points and Keani Albanez 10.
Both teams had nice runs in the first half before a 3 by Taylor Wurtz gave the Badgers (6-3) a 29-28 lead at the break. But Gonzaga took control after that. GU opened the second half with a 9-0 run. The Badgers closed within two before a 10-0 Gonzaga run made it 52-40 with 9:10 left. Redmon had eight points in the surge.
Paige Morgan led Wisconsin with 19 points and Taylor had 12.
T25-WISCONSIN'S GLUE GUY
Gasser's take-charge play sparks No. 4 Wisconsin
Josh Gasser loves taking charge.
The junior's heady, all-around play is a key reason why No. 4 Wisconsin is off to a hot start at 10-0. The Badgers have their highest ranking in the Top 25 poll since reaching the top spot in 2007.
All five Wisconsin starters score in double figures, with Gasser (GAH-sir) rounding out the quintet at 10.4 points a game.
But the 6-foot-3 guard is just as important in areas other than scoring, like hustling after loose balls. He's an expert at drawing charging fouls and guarding an opponent's best scorer. Coach Bo Ryan says he couldn't ask for anything more from one of his team leaders.
The Badgers can match their best start since 1993-94 by beating intrastate rival Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
GREEN BAY-E MICHIGAN
Eastern Michigan holds off Green Bay in 67-58 win
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Ray Lee scored 17 points to help Eastern Michigan snap a three-game losing streak with a 67-58 victory over Green Bay Tuesday night.
Lee was 5 of 9 from the field, including two 3-pointers, as the Eagles (5-3) took control of the game with a 12-0 run midway through the first half to build a lead that would never be challenged. Karrington Ward, who entered the game averaging 16.5 points per game, was held to 13 points but hauled in seven rebounds. Da'Shonte Riley and Mike Talley added 11 apiece.
Green Bay (5-3) outscored the Eagles in the second half 40-38 but never drew closer than seven points in the final stretch. Alec Brown led the Phoenix with a game-high 19 points and 10 rebounds, while Keifer Sykes added 13 points.
Eastern Michigan shot 43.9 percent from the field and had six fewer turnovers than Green Bay's 18.
