Badgers Fire Women's Basketball Coach

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Lisa Stone has been fired as women's basketball coach at Wisconsin after making just one NCAA tournament appearance in her eight seasons.

Stone went 128-119 at Wisconsin, making the tournament in 2010 before losing in the first round, but regressed again this year and finished 16-15 after a loss to Illinois State in the second round of the women's NIT.

Athletics director Barry Alvarez says that Stone contributed much to the community, but the program did not live up to expectations.
