PHOENIX (AP) — Eric Bledsoe is getting close to his old self, and that’s great news for the Phoenix Suns in their stretch run to try to make the playoffs.
The Suns’ high-energy point guard scored 15 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and Phoenix pulled out a 98-92 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
“No question, I think I had a better feel today,” Bledsoe said. “Instead of coming out and just forcing stuff, I kind of played with a little more rhythm. ‘’
Goran Dragic added 20 points, 15 in the first half, and Markieff Morris scored 16 for the Suns.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Daniel Coursey scored 17 points and Mercer pulled off the biggest upset in the NCAA tournament so far by knocking off Duke 78-71.

Jakob Gollon added 20 points for the 14th-seeded Bears (27-8).

The Atlantic Sun champions — the same league that produced 2013 tournament darling Florida Gulf Coast — shot 56 percent.

The Bears were simply too much for a Duke team with stars Jabari Parker and Rodney Hood.

Mercer scored 11 straight points during the late 20-5 run that clinched the biggest victory in school history. It's the second one-and-done in three years for the third-seeded Blue Devils.

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.”

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.

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.”
