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.

Bengals Bring Back Sims

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals brought back defensive tackle Pat Sims on Thursday, signing him as an unrestricted free agent from Oakland.

Sims was Cincinnati's third-round pick in 2008 and spent five seasons with the Bengals before leaving as a free agent. He spent the last two seasons with the Raiders, playing in 32 games with a total of 85 tackles. He has seven career sacks and one interception.

He's the second member of the defensive line to reunite with Cincinnati in the offseason. The Bengals also signed defensive end Michael Johnson, who left as a free agent after the 2013 season and played one year with Tampa Bay before being released.

Cats Defile Mountaineers

CLEVELAND (AP) - Perfect and pulverizing. Kentucky made West Virginia's press look pathetic.
 
   Trey Lyles scored 14 points, Andrew Harrison added 13 and the unbeaten Wildcats, chasing history and a ninth national title, rolled to a 78-39 victory over the Mountaineers on Thursday night in the Midwest Regional semifinals of the NCAA Tournament.
 
   The tourney's top seed and an overwhelming favorite to cut down the nets next month in Indianapolis, Kentucky (37-0) advanced to Saturday's regional final to play third-seeded Notre Dame, an 81-70 winner over Wichita State in the other semifinal.
 
   The Fighting Irish may need to call Rudy, consult with Digger Phelps and wake up the echoes from some of those stunning upsets in football and hoops they have pulled off in the past.

Dayton Extends Miller

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Coach Archie Miller got three more years added to his contract Thursday after leading Dayton to a second straight NCAA Tournament appearance.
 
   It's the second year in a row that Miller has received an improved deal. After he led the Flyers to their first Sweet 16 appearance in 30 years and an Elite Eight appearance last season, they extended his deal through the 2018-19 season.
 
   The new deal lasts through the 2012-22 season. The Flyers won a First Four game on their home court and one more before losing to Oklahoma in this year's tournament.
 
   The Flyers are 90-47 in Miller's four seasons. Under Miller, they've won NCAA Tournament games in consecutive seasons for the first time in 48 years.
