UNDATED (AP) -- Three players heading to the Final Four head up The Associated Press men's basketball All-America team. The starting five is led by Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky, Kentucky's Willie Cauley-Stein and Duke's Jahlil Okafor (juh-LIHL' OH'-kuh-for).

The 7-foot Kaminsky was a unanimous choice while Okafor, a 6-11 freshman, received all but one first-team vote. Rounding out the first five are Notre Dame senior Jerian Grant and Ohio State freshman D'Angelo Russell.

COLLEGE BASKEETBALL-CINCINNATI-CRONIN

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bearcats coach Mick Cronin has been cleared to resume coaching after missing most of the season because of a problem with a blood vessel in the back of his brain.

The 43-year-old wasn't permitted to coach games or practices after the problem was detected in December. Assistant Larry Davis took over and led the Bearcats to the NCAA Tournament, w here they lost to Kentucky in their second game.

Cronin had more tests recently that found the issue has been resolved.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL-NBA-RJ HUNTER

ATLANTA (AP) --Georgia State junior guard R.J. Hunter says he's entering the NBA draft.

The move was expected after he won his second straight Sun Belt Conference player of the year award and led the Panthers to their first NCAA appearance since 2001, while playing for his father, Georgia State coach Ron Hunter.

Hunter's late 3-pointer capped off a comeback from 12 points down in the final three minutes in a win over Baylor in the opening round of the NCAA tournament.

MLB-SPRING TRAINING

UNDATED. (AP) -- Third baseman Kris Bryant was reassigned by the Chicago Cubs to their minor league camp despite an outstanding spring training at the plate, triggering a threat of litigation from the players' association.

Bryant hit .425 in the exhibition season with nine homers and 15 RBIs in 40 at-bats. If the 23-year-old spends 12 or more days in the minor leagues, Chicago would delay him from becoming eligible for free agency by one year, until after the 2021 season, according to baseball's collective bargaining agreement.

In other news;

-- Justin Verlander will miss his scheduled spring training start Thursday but hopes to take his season opening turn for Detroit on April 8 against Minnesota. The 2011 AL Cy Young Award winner and MVP left Friday's exhibition outing with a cramp in his right triceps.

-- The St. Louis Cardinals have picked Carlos Martinez as their fifth starter. The 23-year-old went 2-4 with a 4.03 ERA in 57 games for the NL Central champions last year.

-- Left-hander Paul Maholm (mah-HAH'-luhm) has been released from a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds. He had a 2.19 ERA in five spring-training games. Maholm was 1-5 with a 4.84 ERA in eight starts and 22 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers last year.

-- The Mets made two trades to bolster a bullpen lacking in left-handers, acquiring Alex Torres from San Diego and Jerry Blevins from Washington. The Mets sent minor league right-hander Cory Mazzoni and a player to be named to the Padres and outfielder Matt den Dekker to the Nationals. New York's bullpen had been without a reputable lefty since Josh Edgin learned in mid-March he needed Tommy John surgery.

-- Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy will likely begin the season on the disabled list because of a strained left shoulder. The three-time Gold Glove shortstop was injured Friday during an exhibition game.

UNDATED (AP) -- The battle for supremacy of the NBA's Southwest Division continues tonight as the two teams vying for the top spot, Houston and Memphis, are both in action. The now first-place Rockets, who have won four straight and seven of 10, are visiting Atlantic Division champ Toronto, while the slumping Grizzlies, who have lost three in a row and five of 10, are home to Sacramento.

Two teams vying for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference are squaring off tonight as Charlotte plays host to Boston. As a new day begins the Celtics are a half-game back of idle Brooklyn for the eighth spot while the Hornets are a full game back of the Nets.

The remaining games this evening feature the Southeast Division champion Atlanta Hawks, who have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, home to Milwaukee, the Utah Jazz at Minnesota, Portland home to Phoenix and the Lakers at Philadelphia in a game that features two teams with a combined 37 wins.

NBA-ROCKETS

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist and will miss the remainder of the season.
