Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Gordon Tests Positive Again

CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says troubled Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has failed another drug test.
 
   The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on Sunday on condition of anonymity because of the confidentiality of the testing, says Gordon could be banned by the NFL for one year. Gordon has twice been suspended for substance-abuse violations.
 
   ESPN, citing anonymous sources, first reported Gordon's failed test.
 
   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. The Browns are "gathering more information and will provide further comment at the appropriate time."
 
   Gordon was suspended 10 games last season. He appeared in just five and was suspended by the Browns for violating team rules before the finale.

Buckeyes Slam Hoosiers

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - D'Angelo Russell scored 22 points and added 10 assists, Jae'Sean Tate added a career-high 20 points, and Ohio State defeated No. 23 Indiana 82-70 on Sunday.
 
   The Buckeyes (16-5, 5-3) won consecutive games for the first time since wins against in-state foes Miami and Wright State on Dec. 22 and 27, respectively. Indiana (15-5, 5-2) had its four-game winning streak snapped despite 26 points from junior guard Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell.
 
   For the second straight game, Ohio State coach Thad Matta replaced senior center Amir Williams with Anthony Lee and sophomore forward Marc Loving with Tate in his starting lineup. Just like in their earlier meeting this season, the Buckeyes pressured the Hoosiers into 15 turnovers. Indiana entered the game averaging 11.1 turnovers per game - the second-lowest mark in the Big Ten - while Ohio State's average of 16.6 forced turnovers a game was second-best.

Cavs Strike Down Thunder

CLEVELAND (AP) - LeBron James scored 34 points, including the first eight in the fourth quarter, and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 108-98 on Sunday for their sixth straight win.
 
   James made a pair of 3-pointers and a nasty fade-away jumper to give the Cavs a 91-80 lead. Later, the four-time MVP fed Kevin Love for a 3-pointer with 3:38 left that put the Thunder away. The Cavs are now 6-1 since James returned after missing eight games with a strained back and knee.
 
   Love added 19 points and 13 rebounds, Kyrie Irving scored 21 and J. R. Smith had 14. Tristan Thompson grabbed 16 rebounds.
 
   Kevin Durant scored 32 and Russell Westbrook had 22 for the Thunder, who went 3-2 on their longest road trip this season.

Johansen Voted Most Valuable All-Star

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - John Tavares of the New York Islanders matched a record with four goals, and Team Toews beat Team Foligno 17-12 on Sunday night in the highest-scoring NHL All-Star game.
 
   The wild, no-defense exhibition even featured a fake fight along with goals in bunches.
 
   The 29 goals were the most in the event's 60-year history, eclipsing the 26-goal burst in North America's 14-12 victory over the World in 2001.
 
   Ryan Johansen, of the hometown Columbus Blue Jackets, had two goals for the losing team but still won the MVP award in voting by fans on Twitter.
 
   The NHL has determined the teams by a number of geographic and divisional setups over the 60 years. Just like on ponds around the globe, these lineups were determined by a player draft on Friday night.
