COLUMBUS — This was a fitting way for Aaron Craft to close out his final home game.
The hard-nosed point guard led Ohio State’s voracious defense down the stretch — even diving for a big rebound in the final 25 seconds — helping the Buckeyes rally past No. 22 Michigan State 69-67 on Sunday.
“Probably the poetic justice way to end the game was the way he did it,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “I give him a lot of credit for that.”
A lot of Buckeyes made big plays down the stretch as the Spartans went scoreless for the final 4:30. Ohio State (23-8, 10-8 Big Ten) scored the final four points.

DETROIT (AP) — William Clay Ford was born into a fortune and spent much of his life staying away from fame as he steered the family business and owned an NFL franchise.

The man reverently referred to as Mr. Ford, the last surviving grandchild of automotive pioneer Henry Ford and owner of the Detroit Lions, died Sunday. He was 88.

Ford Motor Co. said in a statement that Ford died of pneumonia at his home in Grosse Pointe. He worked for the company bearing his name for more than half of its 100-year history. He bought a business of his own, the Lions, a half-century ago.

Despite ample opportunity to boost his ego in either role, Ford chose to carry himself in a quiet way publicly.

"My father was a great business leader and humanitarian who dedicated his life to the company and the community," William Clay Ford Jr., executive chairman of Ford Motor Co. and Lions vice chairman, said in a statement. "He also was a wonderful family man, a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather."

To the masses in the Motor City, Ford was simply the owner of the Lions who struggled to achieve success on the field despite showing his passion for winning by spending money on free agents, coaches, executives and facilities.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Carmen Berra, the wife of New York Yankees great Yogi Berra, has died. She was 85.

The Yankees confirmed that she died Thursday night in New Jersey's Essex County. The team didn't say how she died.

The Berras got married in January 1949 and recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.

Yogi Berra, 88, was a 10-time World Series champion with the Yankees as a catcher, had two stints as their manager and now is an unofficial team ambassador, making frequent appearances at games and other events.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — When Michael Jordan speaks, people still listen.
The Charlotte Bobcats owner praised his team during a pregame locker room speech Friday night, but warned his players it’s only going to get tougher from here on out.
Jordan spoke directly about the Bobcats potentially making the playoffs — something that seemed inconceivable five months ago for a team that was 7-59 and 21-61 the previous two seasons.
“He talked to them about the progress that he had seen and praised them for their attitude and togetherness as a team,” coach Steve Clifford said. “And he let them know, which I thought was perfect, the toughest part is ahead. We made our first step and it now gets tougher. It was a great message.”
