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.

LBJ Hurt Again

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cavaliers superstar LeBron James sat out Wednesday night's game against Portland with a sprained right wrist sustained in a hard fall at Detroit.
   James is also doubtful for Friday's game against Sacramento.
   James got hurt late in the third quarter on Tuesday when he fell after trying to block a shot by Pistons guard Jodie Meeks. James put out both hands to break his fall as he crashed to the floor. James briefly went to the bench, but finished the game, scoring 32 points as the Cavs won their seventh straight.
   Afterward, James acknowledged he was scared when he fell because he broke his left wrist on a similar play during high school.
   The four-time MVP recently returned after missing eight games with a strained back and knee. The Cavs went 1-7 without him, but are 7-1 since he came back.

CBJ Making Moves

   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed left wing Jeremy Morin on injured reserve with an upper-body injury that will sideline him indefinitely.

Buckeyes' Switch to Small Ball Successful


 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Most college basketball coaches don't make wholesale changes in-season.
   Yet Ohio State's Thad Matta has made two significant switches just in the past few weeks.
   First, Matta abandoned a 2-3 zone that his team had played for most of the first 13 games this season, changing to a man-to-man.
   Then, he went to a more mobile but decidedly shorter starting lineup. Anthony Lee, a Temple transfer who was basically the third-team center, is now the tallest starter at 6-foot-9. Matta also put 6-4 freshman Jae'Sean Tate into the lineup, giving him room to create havoc on the front line.

Enigmatic big man Amir Williams, a 6-11 McDonald's All-American who has never played up to expectations, has moved to the bench. Ohio State fans have been frustrated by his inability to throw his chiseled body around in the paint.

A starter all season, Williams never left the bench unless it was to listen to a huddle during a timeout in Sunday's 82-70 win over No. 23 Indiana. He only played 3 minutes in the previous game, a 69-67 win at Northwestern.

   Maybe it's not just a coincidence that the Buckeyes (16-5, 5-3 Big Ten) have won two in a row heading into Thursday night's game against No. 16 Maryland.

EMU Students Remembered

 YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - The men's basketball team at Eastern Michigan University has honored two students who were killed in a car accident over the weekend.
   A moment of silence was held Tuesday before a game against Ohio University to mourn the loss of women's basketball player Shannise Heady and Eastern Michigan senior Jordan Hopkins. The two students died Sunday morning after Heady lost control of her vehicle in Ypsilanti (ihp-sih-LAN'-tee) Township and crashed into an oncoming vehicle.
   Fans in the student section wore T-shirts and players wore sweatbands honoring Heady with her No. 32.
   The Ann Arbor News reports the team also planned to wear jerseys embroidered with Heady's number, but they weren't ready in time for the game.
   The women's team will hold a moment of silence before a game at Western Michigan University on Wednesday.
