STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Jubilant fans celebrating UConn's Monday night national basketball championship win smashed a window in an engineering building, broke street lights and overturned furniture inside the school's student union.

Campus police had made 30 arrests by 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, while state police had made others and more were expected, said University of Connecticut spokesman Tom Breen.

"A lot of it was alcohol-related," Breen said. "There was breech of peace, destruction of property, and we had a fireworks charge."

Most of the property damage was minor, he said.

No serious injuries had been reported.

"By far, most of our students have conducted themselves safely and responsibly," UConn Police Chief Barbara O'Connor said.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Coaches and players left them. Others told them to go away.

The guys who stuck around at UConn ended up with the last laugh and a pretty good prize to go with it: The national title.

Shabazz Napier turned in another all-court masterpiece Monday night to lift the Huskies to a 60-54 win over Kentucky's freshmen and bring home a championship hardly anyone saw coming.

"You're looking at the hungry Huskies," Napier told the crowd and TV audience as confetti rained down. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you banned us."

The senior guard had 22 points, six rebounds and three assists, and his partner in defensive lock-down, Ryan Boatright, finished with 14 points.

COLUMBUS — Jack Johnson calls it the most exciting time of the year.
“This is when you want to be playing meaningful games,” the Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman said.
Just maybe not so frequently.
As they went through an optional practice Monday morning, the Blue Jackets were enjoying one of their last serene moments of the week.
They close out the regular season with an unprecedented four games in five nights — back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday and again on Friday and Saturday.
“I don’t think many guys have been through this,” forward Jared Boll said.
Certainly no one currently in the NHL. According to STATS LLC, no NHL team has finished a season with so many games packed into so little time since Ottawa did it in 1992-93.

ST. LOUIS — Michael Wacha outdid Tony Cingrani in a rematch of young power arms and the St. Louis Cardinals got a three-run double from Yadier Molina in the first inning, beating the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 in their home opener on Monday.
Standing room attendance of 47,492, the largest crowd at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, braved day-long rain and temperatures in the 40s to greet the NL champions and visit the new Ballpark Village. Hundreds milled about the attached complex, which features five sports bars and rooftop seating.

Rains washes out 1st day at Masters PDF Print E-mail

AUGUSTA, Ga.  — The first full day at the Masters turned out to be a short one Monday.
Augusta National was open for only two hours because of storms, still enough time for a few players to see some of the changes to the golf course — even though this was supposed to be a year with really no change at all.
The ice storm in February that led to the demise of the famous Eisenhower Tree also cost the club countless other trees, giving Augusta a slightly different look. Instead of a forest of Georgia pines, players can see from the 10th fairway all the way across to the 15th fairway. Players couldn’t help but notice the number of trees missing from the right side of the narrow, claustrophobic seventh fairway.
“You don’t feel like you’re going down a bowling alley as much,” Brandt Snedeker said, his hair wet from wearing a visor in the rain.
