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.

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.

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.
