BLUE JACKETS-BOBROVSKY OUT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky will miss this weekend's NHL All-Star game -- on home ice -- due to a lower-body injury he sustained Wednesday night in Winnipeg.

He will be replaced by St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott.

The Blue Jackets did not reveal a timetable for Bobrovsky's return.

Bobrovsky, selected to participate in his first All-Star game, has a 16-15-2 record with a 2.85 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and one shutout in 33 games this season. He landed awkwardly while making a stop in the second period of the game won 4-0 by the Jets.

The 2013 Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL's top goalie, he underwent tests on Thursday afternoon.

BROWNS-DEFILIPPO'S CHALLENGE

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Browns new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo says he accepted the job not knowing who will be the team's starting quarterback in 2015.

DeFilippo, who spent the past three seasons as Oakland's quarterbacks coach, said Thursday that the Browns aren't sure if their future QB "is in the building or not." DeFilippo said he's not intimidated by the uncertainty and is looking forward to the challenge.

DeFilippo was introduced by coach Mike Pettine, who acknowledged there may be some skepticism about the man who will call plays for the Browns next season. Pettine previously worked with DeFilippo with the New York Jets and is confident the affable 36-year-old is ready to be an NFL coordinator.

DeFilippo said he spent time with Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel before last year's draft and looks forward to working with him. DeFilippo said he has not yet broken down film of Manziel's rookie season.

BROWNS-HASLAM

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Owner Jimmy Haslam says the Browns are committed to finding a quarterback "who can make us a championship team" and that all options are open for next season's starter.

Speaking before the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards on Thursday, Haslam said the Browns have not ruled out anything at quarterback for 2015. He said it's possible the team could re-sign Brian Hoyer, who started 13 games last season.

Haslam added that quarterback Johnny Manziel needs to "show on and off the field he can be a professional." Manziel started two games late in the season, but didn't play well, leaving doubt about his future.

Haslam said the team is cooperating with the NFL on its investigation into whether texts were sent to Cleveland's coaches on the sideline, a violation. NFL spokesman Michael Signora said the league's review of the matter continues.

REDS-HAMILTON'S ENCORE

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Billy Hamilton set a Reds rookie record by stealing 56 bases, tied for second-most overall in the major leagues last season. He also wore down as the months wore on, with his hitting and stealing taking a big dive.

So his major goal this offseason is to get stronger.

Hamilton has been lifting weights and working with a Reds coach on his bunting and his stealing techniques in the offseason. He got caught stealing 23 times last season, an unacceptably high number.

Manager Bryan Price says Hamilton will be paying more attention to picking his spots to steal this season. He's also hoping that his leadoff hitter can be better for a full season the second time around.

OHIO ST-NORTHWESTERN

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Freshman D'Angelo Russell scored a career-high 33 points, and Ohio State overcame an early deficit to beat Northwestern 69-67 in the Big Ten on Thursday.

Russell's 3-pointer with 3:34 to play snapped a 60-all tie, which answered the 3-pointer of Northwestern's JerShon Cobb that created the deadlock. Russell's sixth 3-pointer of the night made it 66-60 with 1:36 to play.

Northwestern's Tre Demps hit a 3-pointer to pull the Wildcats within a point with 1.8 seconds to play, but Russell's free throw in the final second sealed the outcome.

Ohio State (14-5, 3-3) used a 16-7 run early in the second half to expand its lead to 11 points. A pair of 3-pointers from Russell, plus a jam from Sam Thompson (11 points), helped them pull away. Russell also pulled down seven rebounds and had six assists.

Alex Olah led Northwestern (10-8, 1-4) with 16 points. Demps added 14 and Bryant McIntosh had 12.

XAVIER-PROVIDENCE

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- LaDontae Henton and Kris Dunn combined to score 44 points and Providence needed overtime to withstand a Xavier comeback as the Friars took a 69-66 win Thursday night.

Xavier trailed by 12 points at halftime and scored the final nine points of regulation to force overtime -- a run bracketed by Myles Davis' 3-pointer and capped by his layup with :28 left.

J.P Macura's layup with 1:24 left in overtime gave the Musketeers the lead, 64-62, but Henton got to the basket for a layup to pull the Friars even, then converted a three-point play.

Henton finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds for Providence (15-5, 5-2 Big East). Dunn finished with 20 points, 10 boards and eight assists.

Matt Stainbrook scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Xavier (12-7, 3-4). Davis added 16 points and Jalen Reynolds had 16 points and 13 boards.

NFL-PATRIOTS

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Bill Belichick spent a considerable amount of time discussing pressure on Saturday, but it had nothing to do with the Super Bowl.

The New England Patriots coach says his team did everything right in preparing footballs for last week's AFC Championship game. In a lengthy, detail-oriented presentation to reporters, Belichick explained how the Patriots conducted experiments over the last few days on what goes into inflating a ball and how it reacts to different weather conditions.

His conclusion is that the team did nothing wrong and that it welcomes the league's inquiry.

The NFL is investigating why footballs used by the team in the AFC championship game against Indianapolis were insufficiently inflated. Belichick could not provide answers, but he explained how other things such as temperature could have an effect.

The Patriots are scheduled to play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Feb. 1.

T25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats are 19-0 for the second time since John Calipari took over the program five years ago. The Wildcats also own a 6-0 mark in the SEC after Devin Booker scored 18 points and Aaron Harrison added 13 in a 58-43 triumph over South Carolina.

The game turned after the Gamecocks took a 24-23 lead with 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the first half. Kentucky immediately went on a 14-0 run and South Carolina shot 4 for 27 the rest of the way.

The only other unbeaten team in Division One men's basketball is No. 2 Virginia, which takes on Virginia Tech on Sunday.

-- Purdue beat No. 25 Iowa 67-63 behind Rapheal Davis, who scored 16 of his 24 points in the first half. Basil Smotherman and A.J. Hammons each scored 13 points for the Boilermakers.

NBA-TRAIL BLAZERS-ALDRIDGE

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Portland Trail Blazers say that forward LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to put off thumb surgery and play tonight against Washington.

Aldridge said on Thursday that he needed surgery to repair a ligament in his left thumb, a procedure that would cause him to miss from six to eight weeks. Hours before the game against the Wizards, the Blazers announced on Twitter that the three-time All-Star would play.

Aldridge hurt his thumb in the second quarter of the Blazers' 98-95 victory on Monday night.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-SENIOR BOWL

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah took MVP honors after leading the North to a 34-13 victory over the South in the Senior Bowl.

Abdullah rushed for 73 yards and added 40 receiving on just 11 touches. Minnesota running back David Cobb gained 69 yards on 11 carries, including a 4-yard touchdown late in the third quarter.

Texas cornerback Quandre Diggs and Miami-Ohio's Quinten Rollins had third-quarter interceptions for the North.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-ALABAMA

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Lane Kiffin says he's staying on as Alabama's offensive coordinator under head coach Nick Saban, spiking reports that he was a candidate to become offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers.

The former head coach of the Oakland Raiders, Southern California and Tennessee led Alabama to a school-record for total yards in his first season with a new quarterback in Blake Sims. Alabama lost to Ohio State in a national semifinal game.

NHL-ALL-STAR GAME

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The skills competitions are on tap today as part of the NHL All-Star weekend. Team Foligno (foh-LEE'-noh), captained by Blue Jackets star Nick Foligno, will take on Team Toews (TAYVZ), headed by Blackhawks star Jonathan Toews in the skill events and tomorrow's All-Star game.

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson could miss the All-Star game because of a lower body injury that prevented him from participating in the skills competition.

Johnson is eighth in the league with a team-high 48 goals on 17 goals and 31 assists in 46 games this season.

The lightning did not reveal the severity of the injury of how Johnson was injured.

MLB-SELIG

NEW YORK (AP) -- Outgoing baseball commissioner Bud Selig (SEE'-lihg) says he leaves with no regrets after nearly 22 1/2 years on the job.

Selig spoke to The Associated Press on his final day on the job before giving way to Rob Manfred. He said he envisions the possibility of Major League Baseball expanding to other countries.

Selig also defended the actions of the game in how it dealt with the drug crisis that dominated the news for several years and said he leaves the game with no major problems.

MLB expanded the playoffs, added instant replay and changed the All-Star Game format under his direction.

MLB-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have hired six-time National League steals champion Vince Coleman as a base-running instructor. The last player to steal 100 bases in a season will work with major leaguers and minor leaguers throughout the season.

MLB-BANKS-OBIT

CHICAGO (AP) -- The city of Chicago is mourning the death of Cubs great Ernie Banks, who was 83 when he passed away Friday night. The team did not provide a cause of death.

Banks hit 512 home runs during his 19 major league seasons, including five years with at least 40. He captured the NL Most Valuable Player award in 1958 and `59 and went to 11 All-Star games from 1955-69. But his Cubs never finished better than second place during his career, making him one of the greatest players to never appear in a postseason game.

His hitting was surpassed by his enthusiasm for the game. He was fond of saying, "It's a great day for baseball. Let's play two!"

He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977, his first year of eligibility. Banks also was selected to baseball's All-Century team in 1999.
