AP Sports Writer

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Jerry Tarkanian's return to the NCAA tournament after a nine-year absence didn't last long.

Jon Bryant scored 21 points, including four consecutive 3-pointers from the left corner, as No. 8 seed Wisconsin beat ninth-seeded Fresno State 66-56 on Thursday night in the West Regional.

Allen leads Bucks to needed win

MILWAUKEE (AP) Ray Allen helped keep the struggling Milwaukee Bucks in the hunt for the playoffs.

Losers of 13 of 17 games coming into Thursday night's game, Allen paced the Bucks to a 106-96 victory over the Houston Rockets with 28 points, seven assists and three steals.

A loss would have dropped the Bucks a full game behind Orlando for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. But thanks to Allen, who had some big help from Sam Cassell and Glenn Robinson, the Bucks might have salvaged their fading hopes.

Jahn out as city police chief

Leader Reporter

Norm Jahn is no longer Shawano's police chief.

City officials moved quickly after a decision was announced Tuesday morning by the Court of Appeals of Wisconsin to enforce a year-old settlement between the city and Jahn, calling for the chief's resignation.

Jahn said city officials late Tuesday served him with a letter saying because of the court ruling, his employment with the city was termed over. He said he was ordered to remove his personal items from his office at the police department and turn in his gun and badge.
