NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Connecticut Huskies are national champions in women's college basketball for a record ninth time following a 79-58 rout of previously-unbeaten Notre Dame. Breanna Stewart paced the Huskies with 21 points and Stefanie Dolson finished with 17 points, 16 rebounds and six assists. This marks the second time since 2004 that Connecticut has won both NCAA Division I basketball titles in the same season.

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Yankees closer David Robertson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained groin, although he doesn't expect to be sidelined more than 15 days.. To help fill the void the New Yorkers recalled lefty reliever Cesar Cabral from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Robertson posted two saves in three games before getting hurt.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Royals infielder Omar Infante (ihn-FAHN'-tay) has a sprained jaw after being hit by a Heath Bell pitch during Monday's win over Tampa Bay. Infante was sent to the University of Kansas Medical Center, where he also received six stitches to close a facial cut. The Royals say the second baseman did not sustain a concussion.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon point guard Joseph Young says he's returning to the Ducks for his senior season. The 6-foot-2 Young was the Ducks' leading scorer as they advanced to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. He averaged 18.9 points per game and scored in double figures in 30 of 34 games.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The Vancouver Canucks have fired president and general manager Mike Gillis, making the move a day after the team was eliminated from playoff contention. Gillis took over the general manager position after the 2007-08 season. The Canucks advanced to the 2011 Stanley Cup final under Gillis before losing to Boston, and have been in a steady decline since.
