SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Barry Bonds certainly thinks he's worthy of election to the Hall of Fame. Baseball's home run king says "without a doubt" he deserves to be in Cooperstown, even though his final years were clouded by suspicions of performance-enhancing drug use. The 49-year-old Bonds spent his last 15 big league seasons with San Francisco, finishing in 2007 with 762 homers. He is a part-time spring training hitting instructor for the team.
Bonds didn't even come close to election to the Hall in his first two turns on the ballot. Asked for advice for the writers who have not voted for him he says: "You guys are all adults. I have no advice for you."
One topic he wouldn't discuss: Alex Rodriguez, who is serving a season-long drug suspension.
T25 MEN'S BASKETBALL-POLL
UNDATED (AP) -- As expected Florida and Wichita State remain the top two teams in the new Associated Press men's basketball poll.
The Gators won two games last week to improve to 29-2 while the Shockers won all three games they played and captured the Missouri Valley Conference tournament title, upping their record to 34-0. The Gators, who received 50 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel, open play in the SEC tournament Friday. The Shockers got the other 15 No. 1 votes and are the first team to enter the NCAA tournament without a loss since UNLV in 1991.
Villanova moved from sixth to third, while Arizona dropped one spot to fourth with Louisville jumping from 11th to fifth. The second five this week are Virginia, Duke, San Diego State, Michigan and Kansas 10th.
Kentucky, which has lost three of four, dropped out from 25th, the fourth preseason No. 1 to fall out of the poll in the same season.
T25 WOMEN'S BASKETBALL-POLL
UNDATED (AP) -- Connecticut continues to be the top-team in the women's Associated Press poll after three victories last week. The Huskies are 33-0 after routing Louisville, Cincinnati and Rutgers. UConn has won 39 games dating to last season, the third-longest streak in school history.
Notre Dame remains No. 2 after finishing an undefeated regular season by winning the ACC tournament championship with Louisville third, Tennessee fourth and West Virginia fifth.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL-APPY STATE
BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- Jason Capel (KAY'-puhl) has been let go after four seasons as Appalachian (ap-ah-LA'-chihn) State basketball coach.
Capel is in the final year of a four-year deal that expires at the end of March. The former North Carolina guard -- whose brother Jeff is on Duke's staff -- was the youngest coach in Division I when he was hired in 2010.
The Mountaineers went 9-21 this season.
UNDATED (AP) -- Flash!!! The Miami Heat have lost three straight games.
Tonight the team led by LeBron James will attempt to get back in the win column with a victory over the Wizards in South Beach.
Other first-place teams in action tonight are the Clippers and Raptors. Los Angeles, which has won seven straight to move within three games of the Spurs in the Western Conference race, is home to Phoenix, while the Raptors, who have won three in a row and are now nine games over .500, are at Brooklyn. The Nets are four games back of the Raptors in the Atlantic Division race.
In the remaining games tonight the Atlanta Hawks, who currently hold down the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference, are at Utah while Denver is at Charlotte, the Knicks are home to the 76ers and Orlando is at Milwaukee.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett is expected to miss at least three weeks with a strained left knee. The No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, Bennett underwent an MRI on Sunday that showed the injury. The Cavs will likely take a cautious approach with Bennett, and it's possible he could be done for the year.
His injury is the latest setback in what has been a disappointing first season for Bennett, who is averaging only 4.1 points and 2.9 rebounds in 13 minutes per game.
UNDATED (AP) -- Pittsburgh can regain the top seed in the NHL's Eastern Conference with a win tonight in Washington. The Pens fell a point back of the Bruins yesterday and with two points tonight would take over the top spot with 90. The Bruins have the night off.
The same scenario fits the Anaheim Ducks as they trail idle St. Louis by one point. Tonight the Ducks, who have 93 points, are home to the Maple Leafs.
The Capitals can help their cause for the final playoff berth in the East with a win over the Penguins tonight. Washington has 70 points, one back of Columbus and idle Detroit. The Blue Jackets are at Dallas tonight in a game that means a lot to the Stars as well. They start the day holding down the final playoff berth in the West with 72 points, three more than Phoenix, which is skating at Tampa Bay.
The rest of the games feature Nashville at Ottawa, Winnipeg at Colorado and the Canucks at home to the Islanders.
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- Changes in overtime and video review are expected to be on the agenda when NHL general managers meet this week in Boca Raton, Fla. The general managers want to reduce the number of shootouts that decide regular-season games. This year, 122 of 967 games have gone to a shootout.
Proposals include adding more time to the current four-on-four overtime, instituting a three-on-three element and having teams switch ends with the hope that the long line change leads to more mistakes and odd-man rushes.
Expanded video review became a bigger issue in January when the Detroit Red Wings scored a goal against the Los Angeles Kings that should not have counted because the puck hit the protective netting first.
NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Jets have parted ways with wide receiver Santonio Holmes after four seasons. The move Monday, which had been expected, saves the Jets $8.25 million, which Holmes was due to make as his base salary this season. The 30-year old Holmes had 23 catches for 456 yards and a touchdown in 11 games last season. He missed five games midway through the season with a hamstring injury. Holmes played in just four games in 2012 and was sidelined for several months after a career-threatening foot injury.
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers have made their choice at outside linebacker, and it isn't LaMarr Woodley.
A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press the Steelers will part ways with the former Pro Bowler. That move is hardly a surprise after fifth-year linebacker Jason Worilds agreed to accept a "transition player" tag last week.
Woodley signed a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2011, but has struggled to remain healthy.

Obama economists: Rosier picture if budget passed
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama's top economists say the nation is on track to make economic progress over the next two years, but say it would do even better if Congress would enact the additional spending he proposed in his most recent budget. A divided Congress in an election year is not likely to heed that call.
