UNDATED (AP) -- The first two teams in the Final Four will be determined this evening, with two of the regional finals set in the NCAA Tournament.

Notre Dame will be the next team to take a stab at bringing down top-seed and unbeaten Kentucky when they meet tonight for the Midwest Regional title in Cleveland. And the Fighting Irish have the DNA to topple the Wildcats. Notre Dame teams have beaten the AP's top-ranked teams eight times, most notably ending UCLA's 88-game winning streak in 1974.

But the 37-0 Wildcats are not those teams. They offered a stark reminder of that with a punishing 39-point demolition of West Virginia on Thursday night.

The 32-5 Fighting Irish are trying to get to the Final four for the first time since 1978.

Top-seed Wisconsin will try to grab the West Regional title when the Badgers take on second-seed Arizona in a showdown of powerhouses in Los Angeles. It's a rematch of last year's regional final won by Wisconsin in overtime.

The 34-3 Wildcats take a 14-game winning streak into tonight's play. Wisconsin is 34-3.


UNDATED (AP) -- Golden State looks to establish a franchise record for wins in a season when the Warriors visit Milwaukee tonight. The Western Conference leaders head into tonight's game with an NBA best 59-13 record and are riding an eight-game winning streak.

That's one of five games on the NBA schedule.

Atlanta heads into their game at Charlotte having clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks locked that up with a win over Miami last night, combined with Brooklyn's win over Cleveland.

Oklahoma City continues its pursuit of a playoff spot one day after finding out that star Kevin Durant is lost for the season. The Thunder hit the road to take on Utah. Durant is the team's leading scorer and rebounder, but is set for bone graft surgery next week that will sideline him for the rest of the season. The Thunder currently hold the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.


UNDATED (AP) -- The battles for first place in both NHL Conferences resume as part of a 13-game schedule today and tonight.

The Western conference-leading Ducks are in New York facing the Islanders, a team that has struggled of late with wins in just two of its last nine games.

Nashville started the day a point back of Anaheim. The Central Division-leading Predators are in Washington this afternoon. Nashville has won its last two.

The Rangers headed into today's game at Boston holding a one-point lead over Montreal in the Eastern Conference. New York has already wrapped up a playoff spot for the ninth time in the last ten seasons. The Bruins are battling Ottawa for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Montreal is expected to have Carey Price back in the nets for its home game this evening against Florida. The Canadiens top goalie got the night off Thursday in a loss to Winnipeg. Price has posted shutouts in his last two games.


SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Jimmy Walker is hoping there's no place like home.

Walker takes the lead into today's third round of his hometown Texas Open. The course is a 35-minute drive from Walker's suburban home. The winner of the Sony Open in January is one shot ahead of Charley Hoffman and Aaron Baddeley. Hoffman has two top-three finishes in his previous four appearances at the event.


SAUCIER, Miss. (AP) -- Joe Durant pursues his first Champions Tour title with a share of the lead heading into round two of the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic. He's tied with Colin Montgomerie at 5-under par. Durant won four times on the PGA Tour, but is winless on the 50-and-over tour.

Montgomerie had a breakthrough year in 2014 with wins in the Senior PGA Championship and U.S. Senior Open.
