COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — They were just questions asked of a tired coach after a loss.

Yet Thad Matta's responses might reveal a lot about the 2013-14 Ohio State Buckeyes.

Asked why his team couldn't build a lead against Dayton in a 60-59, second-round NCAA loss on Thursday, he said, "I wish I had the answer for you. I would have used it about a month ago."

In the end, as was the case throughout the season, not even Matta knew what to make of his team.

The Buckeyes opened the season 15-0 and climbed to No. 3 in the nation. Yet over their last 20 games, they were 10-10, a season of promise ending in frustration.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman underwent a 2 1/2-hour operation Thursday to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game.
Team medical director Dr. Timothy Kremchek said Chapman could begin throwing off a mound in six to eight weeks, a timetable that could get him back in games in late May. The left-hander with a fastball that has reached 105 mph could start exercising and throwing on flat ground in a couple of weeks, Kremchek said.
The doctor called Chapman “a very lucky guy.”

CLEVELAND (AP) — As the score tightened, Kevin Durant stayed loose.
Sitting in his warm-ups on Oklahoma City’s bench, Durant knew he might be called upon again. And when he was, the NBA’s leading scorer closed out Cleveland.
“My mind’s always on the game so I didn’t space out,” he said. “I was instantly ready.”
Durant scored 35 points, finding his shooting touch after a rough start, and made five free throws in the final minute to shut down a furious, fourth-quarter comeback and give the Thunder their 50th win, 102-95 over the injury-riddled Cavaliers on Thursday night.
Durant missed five of his first six shots, but finally got it going. He has scored 25 or more in 33 straight games — the league’s longest streak since Michael Jordan did it 40 consecutive times (1986-87).

MILWAUKEE (AP) — While Michigan didn’t have a particularly pretty start to its NCAA tournament, coach John Beilein felt his team proved a point to the rest of the field on Thursday night.
Yes, they can play defense too.
Glenn Robinson III scored 14 points in the arena his father used to call home in the NBA, Jordan Morgan added 10 points and 10 rebounds, and the second-seeded Wolverines held No. 15 seed Wofford to 34 percent shooting in a 57-40 win.
“We were able to get a win basically with our defense today,” Beilein said, “and that’s something a lot of people wouldn’t say if they watched us this year.”

MONTREAL (AP) — Columbus was a little faster to the puck than Montreal all night. The Blue Jackets, though, couldn’t take advantage of their opportunities until late in the third period.
Ryan Johansen scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:01 remaining to give Columbus a 3-2 victory over Montreal on Thursday night, ending the Canadiens’ three-game winning streak.
“They were first on the puck, making us react to them, putting us on our heels a bit,” Montreal’s Lars Eller said of the young and energized Columbus team in the heart of a heated playoff race. “When they do that, we take penalties.”
