OHIO ST-CELEBRATION

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- After leading Ohio State to a national championship, Joey Bosa had one question for the 45,000 fans who crowded into Ohio Stadium in late January.

"How are you guys out here right now? It's freezing," he said from a makeshift stage erected on the south end of the field.

Buckeyes fans were on their feet as coach Urban Meyer and the team emerged from the southeast tunnel obscured by fog and flanked by flames. Onstage, local politicians delivered speeches and players danced and joked with each other while chants of "O-H! I-O!" rang out throughout the stadium and several highlight videos from the Buckeyes' 14-1 season played on the scoreboard.

The university awarded 2,500 free passes allowing fans to watch from the field. More than an hour before the event got underway, they lined a barrier on the 45-yard line as children did somersaults and threw footballs in the north end zone and Brutus Buckeye high-fived those at the front.

ALL-STAR-JOHNSON HURT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson has been ruled out from playing in the NHL All-Star skills competition on Saturday night because of a lower body injury.

The Lightning also announced that it's unclear whether the second-year player will be able to compete in the All-Star game on Sunday. The team did not reveal the severity of the injury or how Johnson was hurt.

Johnson is eighth in the NHL and leads Tampa Bay with 48 points (17 goals and 31 assists) in 46 games this season.

He is a member of Team Toews, and was selected to compete in the challenge relay.

T25-RICHMOND-DAYTON

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Dyshawn Pierre scored 21 points, and Dayton led a double-digit lead slip away before rallying to beat Richmond 63-60 on Saturday night, remaining unbeaten at home.

The Flyers (16-3, 6-1 Atlantic 10) led by 10 points at halftime but went cold at the start of the second half, allowing the Spiders (10-9, 3-3) to make it a game.

Scoochie Smith's two free throws put Dayton up 63-60 with 13.6 seconds left, and ShawnDre' Jones' attempt at a tying 3-point shot was short as time ran out.

The Flyers moved into the Top 25 this week for the first time this season and got drubbed 77-60 at Davidson on Tuesday night, their most lopsided loss of the season. They needed a big finish to pull this one out.

T.J. Cline led the Spiders with 14 points.

DEPAUL-XAVIER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Myles Davis scored 25 points and Trevon Bluiett 21, both career highs, and Xavier rallied in the second half for an 89-76 victory over DePaul on Saturday.

Trailing by a point midway through the second half, Toledo pulled away with an 8-0 burst that included a pair of layups from Brown to make it 57-50 with 7:48 left. Bowling Green (12-5, 4-2) cut the margin to two with Jovan Austin's layup that made it 67-65 with 22 seconds left, but Brown cemented the win with four straight free throws down the stretch.

Richaun Holmes led Bowling Green with 14 points, while Austin finished with 13.

BUFFALO-OHIO

ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Maurice Ndour scored a career-high 31 points, including the game-winning dunk with 0.6 seconds to play, and Ohio beat Buffalo 63-61 on Saturday.

Ohio tied it at 61 on Jarryn Skeete's 3-pointer with 41 seconds left.

NFL-SUPER BOWL

PHOENIX (AP) -- Seahawks All-Pro safety Earl Thomas pronounced his separated left shoulder "pretty good" when the team arrived Sunday for the Super Bowl.

Thomas was injured in Seattle's overtime victory against Green Bay in last week's NFC championship game. He says there is no way he won't be on the field to face New England in the Super Bowl.

Fellow Seahawks All-Pro defensive back Richard Sherman has an elbow injury that he also dismissed as a non-factor for next Sunday.

NFL-PRO BOWL

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The annual Pro Bowl game is being played this evening in Glendale, Arizona, with all of the NFL's top stars participating, with the exception of the Super Bowl participants or those injured.

One thing that might really stand out to fans is that the goal posts will change for points after. The league is trying to find a way to make the PAT less easy for teams to score. For the game the goal posts will be narrowed from the standard 18.6 feet to just 14 feet. In addition, the kick will be moved back to the 15-yard line, making it about a 33-yard field goal.

NFL-BROWNS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says troubled Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has failed another drug test and could be banned by the NFL for one year.

ESPN first reported Gordon's failed test, citing anonymous sources.

Gordon has twice been suspended for substance-abuse violations.

The Browns released a statement saying they were disappointed to learn of reports on Gordon. The team said it has not been notified by the league of a failed test.

NHL-ALL STAR GAME

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A record 29 goals were scored in the NHL All-Star game at Columbus, and John Tavares contributed four of them.

Toews and Patrice Bergeon (pah-TREES' BEHR'-zhur-ahn) each finished with a goal and four assists, while Voracek had three goals and five points.

But the game MVP was local favorite Ryan Johansson of the Blue Jackets. He scored twice and had an assist, including a goal that gave Team Foligno its only lead late in the first period.

Fans voted for the MVP via Twitter.

All-Star game leading vote-getter Zemgus Girgensons (ZEHM'-guhs GEER'-gehn-suhn) was one of three players who failed to score at least one point.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Dominika Cibulkova (doh-mihn-ih-kuh see-bul-KOH'-vah) is two match victories away from her second straight trip to the Australian Open women's final.
