  • Boise State set to join Big East

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Big East’s long-awaited additions are set, with more rebuilding to come.
    The conference is preparing to announce the additions of Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members and Houston, Central Florida and SMU for all sports as soon as Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The five schools will join in 2013.
    The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because details were still being worked out with the schools and plans for an announcement were being completed.

  • Luck needs luck to win Heisman in 2011

    NEW YORK (AP) — Stanford’s Andrew Luck is returning to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, just not as the favorite.
    That distinction belongs to Baylor’s Robert Griffin III.
    The two star quarterbacks will join fellow finalists Trent Richardson, Tyrann Mathieu and Montee Ball at the Heisman presentation Saturday night in Manhattan.
    Luck is the only repeat finalist this season, while Griffin is the first Baylor player to get an invite to the ceremony. The school that never has had a player finish better than fourth in the Heisman voting now seems to have the front-runner.

  • NBA owners, players reach tentative deal

    NEW YORK (AP) — NBA Commissioner David Stern accepted some congratulations, headed for another short night of sleep, then planned to brief his owners on a deal that could change the way they do business.
    Players, looking beat and beaten, face a tougher healing process in approving an agreement that significantly limits their earnings.
    After a 149-day lockout, owners and players reached a tentative new labor deal early Saturday, one they expect will be ratified in time to start the season with a Dec. 25 tripleheader.

  • NBA owners, players reach tentative deal--video extra

    NEW YORK (AP) — After nearly two years of bickering, NBA players and owners are back on the same side.

    "We want to play basketball," Commissioner David Stern said.

    Come Christmas Day, they should be.

    The sides reached a tentative agreement early Saturday to end the 149-day lockout and hope to begin the delayed season with a marquee tripleheader Dec. 25. Most of a season that seemed in jeopardy of being lost entirely will be salvaged if both sides approve the handshake deal.

    Barring a change in scheduling, the 2011-12 season will open with the Boston Celtics at New York Knicks, followed by Miami at Dallas in an NBA finals rematch before MVP Derrick Rose and Chicago visiting Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.

  • John wins in battle of brothers

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The Harbaugh brothers met in the middle of the field, hugged, expressed their love for each other and headed off in opposite directions.
    After their much-anticipated, oft-analyzed and historic confrontation was over, John and Jim Harbaugh expressed gratitude over having the opportunity to face each other on Thanksgiving.
    John was just little bit happier, of course, because his Baltimore Ravens beat Jim’s San Francisco 49ers 16-6 Thursday night.
