DENVER (AP) -- It's back to the future for the Colorado Avalanche.
The club has hired former Avs goaltender Patrick Roy (wah) as head coach and vice president of hockey operations. He'll work in the front office alongside Joe Sakic (SAK'-ihk), who was recently promoted to executive vice president of hockey operations.
The Avalanche won two Stanley Cup titles with the duo on the ice and the organization is hoping they can help turn around a downtrodden team.
Roy becomes the sixth coach in Avalanche history and the 14th in franchise history. The team began in the WHA as the Quebec Nordiques in 1972 and joined the NHL seven years later.
Roy has spent the last eight seasons as coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, winning the 2006 Memorial Cup. He is also a part owner of the QMJHL franchise.
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) took some time to think about it and his decision is he will be back to the coach U.S. men's national team, including the 2016 Olympics. The longtime Duke coach calls being the U.S. coach the "ultimate honor."
USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo (koh-LAN'-jeh-loh), speaking by teleconference, said the job is "a perfect fit" for Krzyzewski.
Krzyzewski took over as coach as USA Basketball began its national-team program in 2005. Since then, Krzyzewski has led the U.S. men's team to Olympic gold medals in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. He also led the Americans to the gold at the 2010 FIBA World Championship. The team record under Coach-K is 62-1.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Miami's LeBron James was a unanimous pick for the All-NBA team. James received all 119 votes for the first team from a panel of sports writer and broadcasters throughout the U.S. and Canada. Kobe Bryant of the Lakers is also a first-teamer, marking his record-tying 11th first-team selection. Joining James and Bryant on the first team are Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, San Antonio center Tim Duncan and Clippers guard Chris Paul.
Bryant tied Utah Hall of Famer Karl Malone with his 11th first-team nod.
NBA scoring leader Carmelo Anthony led the second team, joined by guards Russell Westbrook and Tony Parker, center Marc Gasol (gah-SOHL') and forward Blake Griffin.
The third team was Houston's James Harden, Miami's Dwyane (dwayn) Wade, Lakers center Dwight Howard and forwards Paul George of Indiana and David Lee of Golden State.
UNDATED (AP) -- Andrew McCutchen had three hits and two RBIs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Chicago Cubs 4-2 for their fourth straight win.
Leadoff hitter Starling Marte singled and scored in each of the first two innings as Pittsburgh built an early 4-0 lead. The Pirates moved a season-best 11 games over .500 with its 11th victory in 13 games.
The Cubs lost their fourth in a row. Losing pitcher Edwin Jackson fell to 1-7. He gave up two runs in the first inning and two more in the second. He lasted only three innings and has a 6.11 ERA through 10 starts.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Fullback Henry Hynoski of the New York Giants will have surgery Friday after hurting his left knee in the team's organized training activity. The three-year veteran was hurt on the second play from scrimmage during a drill on Wednesday.
The Giants say a doctor examined Hynoski and found two injuries. He'll need surgery to repair the medical collateral ligament and a chip fracture.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Second-round draft choice Johnthan Banks, who was the 43rd overall pick, has agreed to a four-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Banks won the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's top defensive back in 2012. He finished his college career with 16 interceptions, including three he returned for touchdowns.
PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) -- An overnight storm dropped nearly a foot of water on the Ocean Club Golf Course on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, causing the first round to be delayed. The event, which will begin Friday as a 12-hole round, will use holes that are not under water from the worst flooding in about 20 years. Officials hope the rest of the course will drain in time for an 18-hole Sunday. Otherwise, it would be three rounds of 12 holes for the 144-player field.
This is a new event on the LPGA Tour.
