Mashup: Fires set, man shot in Kentucky

A man was wounded by gunfire and dozens were arrested in Lexington, Ky., as fans celebrated Kentucky's national championship Monday night and early Tuesday morning. No immediate arrest was made in the shooting, which involved multiple shots being fired. The wounded man was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Police around the campus reported arresting dozens of people only a few minutes after the end of the game, as revelers set fires to couches and and least one car. Police had said they would be more prepared following the mayhem Saturday night, when fans set small fires and turned over cars in celebration of the semifinal victory over rival Louisville.

"I think that we're taking a more zero-tolerance approach," police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. "That has a part to play in it, but also people started celebrating much earlier than they did on Saturday. The amount of time to become intoxicated and the amount of...

According to The Tennessean, free agent center Dan Koppen is scheduled to visit with the Titans as early as Wednesday.

Kentucky wins national championship

It wasn't the beginning-to-end domination that some people expected, but Kentucky held off a late Kansas rally to claim its eighth national championship and first since the 1998 season with a 67-59 win. Only UCLA (11) has won more. It was also the first national championship for Kentucky coach John Calipari, who had previously taken UMass and Memphis to the Final Four.

The Wildcats led by as many as 18 points in the first half and Kansas didn't get it down to single digits until there was 3:52 remaining. After two Thomas Robinson free throws made the score 59-52, Kentucky's Marquis Teague hit a 3-pointer but Kansas' Elijah Johnson answered right back.

Robinson sank two more free throws to make it 62-57 and the Jayhawks nearly came up with steal at midcourt, but the Wildcats recovered possession and made a free throw. On the next possession, Kentucky's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist came up with a huge block on Tyshawn Taylor and Teague made both of his...

Bobby V on Schill: 'Consider the source'

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, asked about the recent suggestions by former Sox starter Curt Schilling that the start of his managerial tenure with the Sox "is going bad quicker than I expected it to," dismissed the criticism.

"I just consider the source when I read, hear stuff like that," Valentine told reporters in Fort Myers.

The Sox wrapped up spring training in Fort Myers with a 4-2 victory over the Nationals at JetBlue Park. The team now travels to Washington, D.C., for an exhibition game against the Nats before heading to Detroit on Wednesday for a workout and then the regular season opener on Thursday.
