OHIO ST-CELEBRATION

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- After leading Ohio State to a national championship, Joey Bosa had one question for the 45,000 fans who crowded into Ohio Stadium in late January.

"How are you guys out here right now? It's freezing," he said from a makeshift stage erected on the south end of the field.

Buckeyes fans were on their feet as coach Urban Meyer and the team emerged from the southeast tunnel obscured by fog and flanked by flames. Onstage, local politicians delivered speeches and players danced and joked with each other while chants of "O-H! I-O!" rang out throughout the stadium and several highlight videos from the Buckeyes' 14-1 season played on the scoreboard.

The university awarded 2,500 free passes allowing fans to watch from the field. More than an hour before the event got underway, they lined a barrier on the 45-yard line as children did somersaults and threw footballs in the north end zone and Brutus Buckeye high-fived those at the front.

ALL-STAR-JOHNSON HURT

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson has been ruled out from playing in the NHL All-Star skills competition on Saturday night because of a lower body injury.

The Lightning also announced that it's unclear whether the second-year player will be able to compete in the All-Star game on Sunday. The team did not reveal the severity of the injury or how Johnson was hurt.

Johnson is eighth in the NHL and leads Tampa Bay with 48 points (17 goals and 31 assists) in 46 games this season.

He is a member of Team Toews, and was selected to compete in the challenge relay.

T25-RICHMOND-DAYTON

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Dyshawn Pierre scored 21 points, and Dayton led a double-digit lead slip away before rallying to beat Richmond 63-60 on Saturday night, remaining unbeaten at home.

The Flyers (16-3, 6-1 Atlantic 10) led by 10 points at halftime but went cold at the start of the second half, allowing the Spiders (10-9, 3-3) to make it a game.

Scoochie Smith's two free throws put Dayton up 63-60 with 13.6 seconds left, and ShawnDre' Jones' attempt at a tying 3-point shot was short as time ran out.

The Flyers moved into the Top 25 this week for the first time this season and got drubbed 77-60 at Davidson on Tuesday night, their most lopsided loss of the season. They needed a big finish to pull this one out.

T.J. Cline led the Spiders with 14 points.

NFL-PRO BOWL

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The annual Pro Bowl game is being played this evening in Glendale, Arizona, with all of the NFL's top stars participating, with the exception of those playing in the Super Bowl or those injured.

This year's teams were picked by former stars Michael Irvin and Cris Carter. The head coach for Team Carter is Baltimore's John Harbaugh while Jason Garrett of the Cowboys is in charge of Team Irvin.

One thing that might really stand out to fans is that the goal posts will change for points after. The league is trying to find a way to make the PAT less easy for teams to score. For the game the goal posts will be narrowed from the standard 18.6 feet to just 14 feet. In addition, the kick will be moved back to the 15-yard line, making it about a 33-yard field goal.

NFL-BROWNS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns say they are disappointed about a report that troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon has failed another drug test and could be facing a one-year NFL ban. ESPN, citing anonymous sources, first reported Gordon's failed test. Pro Football Talk said Gordon tested positive for alcohol.

In a statement the Browns said they have not been notified by the league of a failed test.

Gordon was suspended for 10 games last season for another violation of the league's drug policy. He appeared in just five games and was suspended by the Browns for violating team rules before the season finale. The 23-year-old led the league with 1,646 yards receiving in 2013.

NHL-ALL STAR GAME

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The story line for today's NHL All-Star Game is who isn't playing. Because of injuries many of the game's top names will not be on the ice for the contest. The list includes Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin as well as goalies Jimmy Howard of Detroit, Pekka Rinne (PEH'-kuh RIH'-nuh) of Nashville and Sergei Bobrovsky of the host Columbus Blue Jackets.

That said, there are a record number of American-born players in the game, nine. That's the largest red, white and blue contingent since the NHL went to the current format in 2003. There were only eight American players in each of the past two All-Star games in 2012 and 2011. Before that, there were seven U.S. players participating in 2009, three in 2008, five in both 2007 and 2004 and six in 2003.

The 2013 All-Star game was canceled due to a labor dispute and there was no game last year because the Winter Olympics.

UNDATED (AP) -- In the first game of the day in the NBA Dwyane Wade (dwayn) scored 26 points, Chris Bosh finished with 20 and Hassan Whiteside had a triple-double to help the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 96-84. Whiteside had a career high 11 blocks to go with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

Miami led by 10 at halftime, 12 going into the fourth quarter and remained in control the rest of the way.

-- In Cleveland the Cavaliers defeated visiting Oklahoma City 109-98 as LeBron James had 34 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Kevin Love added 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Cavs, who have won six straight. Kevin Durant led the way for the Thunder with 32 points.

The sizzling Atlanta Hawks are going for their 16th straight win today as they play host to Minnesota. With all those wins the Hawks have taken a seven-game lead over Washington in the NBA's Southeast Division. The Wizards are in Denver this evening.

The other red-hot team is Golden State. The league-leading Warriors have won four in a row and nine of 10 for a record of 35-6. They face the Celtics today and start the day leading the Clippers in the Pacific Division by seven games. The Clips are in Phoenix today and each team has won seven of its last 10.

The longest losing streak in the NBA right now is seven games and that dubious mark is held by two teams, the Pacers and Lakers. Indiana is at Orlando while the Lakers are home this evening to the Rockets.

The rest of the card has the Pelicans home to the Mavericks, Detroit at Toronto and the Bucks at San Antonio.
