(WNFL) - With the Milwaukee Bucks struggling, perhaps their biggest star is the new floor that's expected to be used for the first time in the regular season tonight. The Bucks had heavily promoted the floor, which resembles the popular Robert Indiana design the Bucks used at the old Arena in the 1970's-and-'80's. It has large "M's" across each half of the court. The new floor was refurbished after an exhibition game against Toronto was halted on October 26th because the players were slipping too much. A satin finish was blamed. The Bucks have lost nine straight, and are off to a 2-and-11 start under new coach Larry Drew. Another loss tonight would give Milwaukee its first 10-game futility string since 1996, when they dropped 15 straight in March of that year. Bucks' forward Ekpe Udoh left practice early yesterday, after soreness in his right knee on which he had surgery in October.
