UConn beats Quinnipiac, reaches 25th straight Sweet 16

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 02:37:50 UT

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn's opponents in this NCAA Tournament have tried to speed up the Huskies and they've tried to slow them down. Neither approach has worked. Two days after running up and down the court in an 88-point win over Saint Francis (Pa), UConn beat in-state neighbor Quinnipiac 71-46 in a half-court game. Napheesa Collier scored 23 points to lead the Huskies (34-0) into a 25th straight Sweet 16 on Monday night. Azura Stevens added 14 points and Kia Nurse chipped in with 13. "I think it's good of us to have one of each (style) this weekend, so we can prepare as much as we can for now the next round that we're going to," Collier said.

Columbus moved into a tie with Philadelphia with 85 points, but the Flyers hold the tiebreaker for third place in the Metropolitan Division and the Blue Jackets hold the first wild card in the Eastern Conference.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because no announcement had been made. "I've never been to London," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "So, if that's true, maybe I'm going to London. Anytime you can grow our game, I think that's a pretty cool thing.

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 01:56:12 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Carly Fabbri grew up dreaming of wearing a Quinnipiac uniform and playing for her mom. She's left her mark for the Bobcats, winning 113 games in her four years at the school where her mother, Tricia, has coached since 1995. While they aren't the first mother/daughter combo in women's basketball, they have been able to build a program into a consistent NCAA Tournament team and that's something they will always share.

D-backs ace Greinke won't start opener, gets time to recover

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 00:02:47 UT

Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke will start this season in the dugout. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Monday that Greinke won't pitch on opening day because of what's perceived to be a minor health issue. Greinke exited his latest start after one inning because of tightness in his groin. He's scheduled to pitch again in spring training Wednesday. The Diamondbacks don't want to push him to be ready for their first game March 29 at home against Colorado. Without this wrinkle, Lovullo said Greinke would've started the opener for the third straight year. "Every staff has a No. 1 and he fit the bill perfectly," Lovullo said. "He won 17 games last year. He was our staff ace.

DETROIT (AP) — Tom Izzo walked into his final news conference before a game this season and saw Michigan State's interim president conducting interviews. The Hall of Fame coach sat down and gazed toward the back of the room, essentially expressionless, as John Engler was with a handful of reporters. Izzo had plenty on his plate at the time, trying to prepare the third-seeded Spartans for Syracuse. Izzo wasn't particularly concerned with the conversations Engler was having with a handful of reporters and said he wasn't bothered by it, figuring he was there to show his support. But it was another sign, showing the crisis on campus related to Larry Nassar has affected Izzo and his basketball program.

Lue said Monday in statement that tests have offered no conclusion about what the issue is and offered no timetable for his return.

I am going to use this time to focus on a prescribed routine and medication, which has previously been difficult to start in the midst of a season," Lue said.
