College Basketball

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Ron Baker scored 19 points, Cleanthony Early added 18 and fourth-ranked Wichita State overcame a sloppy start to beat Southern Illinois 78-67 on Tuesday night and remain unbeaten. Tekele Cotton and Darius Carter added 12 points apiece for the Shockers (13-0 Missouri Valley Conference), who became the first team to start 26-0 since Memphis in 2008. Wichita State has five games standing in the way of becoming the first team since Saint Joseph’s in 2004 to have a perfect regular season.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas coach Bill Self says that star freshman Joel Embiid could miss time with back and knee injuries, and just how much could determine whether the Jayhawks still have a shot at landing a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. The 7-footer has been dealing with a sprained knee and back trouble. He only played 18 minutes in an 85-82 overtime loss at rival Kansas State on Monday night.

CFL

MONTREAL (AP) — The Canadian Football League fined two players Tuesday for making inappropriate comments about openly gay football player Michael Sam. Montreal Alouettes wide receiver Arland Bruce and Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive tackle Bryant Turner Jr. were penalized undisclosed amounts on Tuesday for postings on social media. Bruce misspelled the word “gay” in his post, which urged Sam to “man up”.

MLB

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Radio host and former Cardinals player Jack Clark has retracted comments he made implying that Albert Pujols used performance enhancing drugs. Clark issued a public retraction Monday night for his comments made the nine-time All-Star who played for the Cardinals from 2001-11. Clark says he has “no knowledge whatsoever” that Pujols ever used illegal or banned drugs. Pujols says he’s accepted Clark’s retraction and apology and would resolve a lawsuit he’d filed against Clark for defamation.

Winter Olympics

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — The U.S. added one more silver, another bronze and two disappointments to their Sochi experience.

Erin Hamlin became the first American to medal in the 50 years of Olympic singles luge competition, coming away with bronze. U.S. individual sliders had been no better than fourth in the Winter Games.

American Devin Logan won the silver in women’s slopestyle skiing, finishing second to Canada’s Dara Howell.

But Shaun White fell during his first run of the halfpipe finals, costing him a shot at a medal. He entered the competition as the defending two-time gold medal winner in the event, but had to settle for fourth this time.

And Kikkan Randall of the U.S. has failed in her attempt to become the first American woman to win an Olympic cross-country skiing medal, eliminated in the quarterfinals of the women’s individual freestyle sprint. The two-time World Cup sprint champion only finished fourth of six skiers in a tough heat that featured the event’s defending champ.

Norway tops the overall medal count with 11, including four gold to tie Canada and Germany. The Canadians are second with nine overall medals, the Netherlands has eight and the U.S. and Russia each have seven.

Wednesday’s Olympic schedule includes the women’s downhill and the best women’s hockey matchup of the preliminary round as the United States renews its bitter rivalry with Canada. There’s more figure skating as the pairs complete their free program. There’s also the women’s halfpipe, men’s nordic combined, men’s luge doubles and the men’s 1,000 in speed skating.
