AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Billy Horschel won the Zurich Classic two weeks after the Masters last year, and thus became first on the list of players who earned their first trip to Augusta National. He just had no idea how long the list would grow.

Derek Ernst won at Quail Hollow. Harris English won in Memphis.

Throw in the six amateurs, and then cap it off with Matt Jones being the last man in by winning the Shell Houston Open. The final tally is a record...

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Kevin Stadler might be playing in the Masters for the first time, but he's already showing his old man a thing or two.

Such as the best way to get to the Augusta National media center.

Craig Stadler went through the main door for a joint news conference with his son Monday, which is actually the long way to go. Kevin, meanwhile, slipped in through a back entrance, like most players who turn up for interviews at the building...

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Connecticut and Notre Dame may have spent too much time together in the Big East — and it apparently got annoying.

They played each other 12 times over the previous three seasons. But with Notre Dame moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference, they didn't play this year — setting up Tuesday night's title game between the undefeated squads. It's the first time in the NCAA tournament that unbeaten teams have played — either the men or women....

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Women's college basketball has been looking for that watershed moment when a player or game could transcend the sport.

It may have finally found it.

For the first time in the NCAA tournament — men or women — unbeaten teams will square off for the national championship. Perennial women's powerhouse programs and former Big East rivals UConn (39-0) and Notre Dame (37-0) will play for the title Tuesday night.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ryan Boatright was his best on college basketball's biggest stage.

Capping a difficult year that included the death of his cousin, Boatright scored 14 points and helped shut down Kentucky's guards to help Connecticut win its second national title in four years with a 60-54 victory over Kentucky on Monday night.

Boatright fought through grief after his cousin, 20-year-old Arin Williams was killed in January and fought off the...

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — One by one, players in the Kentucky locker room said essentially the same thing: They had not given the NBA a second thought, much less a first, during their stirring Final Four run.

They'd better start thinking about it now.

With millions of dollars hanging in the balance, Julius Randle, Aaron and Andrew Harrison and a bunch of other Wildcats soon will have to make one of the biggest decisions of their lives. Their deadline...
