UNDATED (AP) -- It looks like Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) wants more gold.
A person with knowledge of the decision says the Duke coach has agreed to return as U.S. men's Olympic basketball coach for the 2016 Olympics.
Krzyzewski was originally expected to step down but instead will attempt to lead the Americans to a third straight gold medal, the person tells The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made.
The Hall of Fame coach has led the Americans since 2005, winning gold at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, and the 2010 world basketball championship.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Associated Press defensive player of the year Brian Urlacher (UR'-lah-kur) says he's retiring after spending 13 seasons with the Chicago Bears. The eight-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement through social media accounts.
Urlacher was the face of the Bears' franchise and leaves as one of the game's great linebackers. In March, he and the Bears were unable to reach a contract agreement and he became a free agent.
Urlacher started 180 games from 2000 through 2012, and recorded a team-record 1,779 tackles. He has 41 1/2 sacks, 22 interceptions, 16 fumble recoveries and 11 forced fumbles. He was the AP's defensive player of the year in 2005 and helped lead the 2006 team to the Super Bowl.
Last year, he was slowed by injuries.
MIAMI (AP) -- The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers open up the NBA's Eastern Conference final tonight with Game 1 in Miami. This is a series featuring two contrasting teams. The Heat, the defending league champions, are a battle-tested squad very familiar with the pressure of late-season playoffs. For the Pacers, these are pretty much untested waters as only one member of the team has ever been in a conference final. Backup big man Ian Mahinmi got all of 71 seconds in one game of the 2011 West title series with Dallas.
A year ago in the playoffs Indiana took Miami to six games in the Eastern semifinals, leading the series 2-1 at one point.
The clubs met three times during the regular season with Indiana taking two of the contests. Those two wins came in Indianapolis while the Heat won in Miami.
Game 2 will take place in Miami Friday night.
OTTAWA (AP) -- The Penguins can take a commanding 3-1 lead over Ottawa in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup Eastern Conference semifinal tonight. That said, it won't be easy as once again the Senators have home ice advantage. Playing in Pittsburgh the Pens won 4-1 and 4-3 but lost the third game, played in Ottawa, 2-1 in double overtime.
Sens captain Daniel Alfredsson tied the game at 1-1 with 29 seconds left in regulation and Colin Greening scored the game winner.
Game 5 will be played back in the Steel City Friday night.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Braves got home runs from B.J. Upton, Ramiro Pena (PAYN'-yuh) and a grand slam from rookie Evan Gattis in an 8-3 win over the Twins. The loss was Minnesota's eighth straight while the win is Atlanta's sixth straight. Paul Maholm got the win, his sixth in 10 decisions, while the Vance Worley got the loss to drop to 1-5.
Among the games these evening there are two pitchers who are looking for their seventh win of the season. Hiroki Kuroda (hih-ROH'-kee kuh-ROH'-duh) of the Yankees is 6-2 and facing the Orioles in Baltimore, while Boston's Clay Buchholz is 6-0 and looking for No. 7 against the White Sox in Chicago.
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Right-hander Kyle Lohse (lohsh) will miss his next scheduled turn in the Milwaukee Brewers' rotation because of irritation in his pitching elbow. Lohse signed a $33 million, three-year contract with Milwaukee a week before opening day and is 1-5 with a 3.76 ERA.
ATLANTA (AP) -- Third baseman Trevor Plouffe (ploof) has been placed on the seven-day disabled list by the Twins with a concussion. He was struck in the head by Dan Uggla's shin while breaking up an attempted double play Tuesday in a game with Atlanta. He remained down for a few minutes before walking slowly to the dugout, holding his head. During an examination for concussion-related symptoms, Plouffe showed sensitivity to light.
PARIS (AP) -- American players Brian Baker and Mardy Fish have pulled out of the upcoming French Open. Organizers say that Baker has not recovered from a right knee operation and Fish is unfit because of heart problems. Seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro (wahn mar-TEEN' dehl POHT'-roh) of Argentina has pulled out as well because of a respiratory virus.
U.S. Open champion Andy Murray pulled out Tuesday because of a chronic back injury.
VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) -- Two weeks ago Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia verbally sparred during The Players Championship. Last night Garcia was at a European Tour awards dinner and was jokingly asked if he would have Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open. The Spaniard replied, "We'll have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken."
Woods took to Twitter on Wednesday and said the comment wasn't silly, rather it was wrong and hurtful. He says he's confident there is "real regret" the comment as made.
The world's No. 1 player also said their flap is two weeks old and that "it's long past time to move on and talk about golf."
