KU’s Geubelle wins triple jump at USA Track Championships |

"This was definitely an awesome competition," Geubelle said. "I knew the girls would come out jumping so I knew it would be hard to win. I had a rough NCAA meet so that was definitely motivation to come out here and do well."

KU reunion in Phoenix among draft possibilities for Withey |

"It was fun to be here. The twins were in attendance. They were cheering me on," Withey said of former KU players Marcus and Markieff Morris, who play for the Suns. "It was a good little reunion. It was good to see them again. It was a good workout."

Big 12 future power rankings |

10. Kansas: KU is employing a risky reboot strategy with a mix-and-match group of junior college transfers. Chris Martin's exit from the program has the project off to a rough start. He might have been KU's best defender next season. The Jayhawks have a long way to go to catch even Iowa State, which has played in three bowl games in four years.

James, Heat repeat as NBA champs; Chalmers wins second ring |

And the games got better, too. Games 2-5 were all decided by double digits, neither team able to carry its momentum from one game to the next.

This one was back and forth for more than three quarters, with Mario Chalmers’ 3-pointer at the buzzer giving Miami a 72-71 lead heading to the final 12 minutes of the season.

The Second Story: LeBron's Long Shot Wins |

The young James couldn't shoot, couldn't shoot a lick. He used to change his form midway through games, would alter how high he would jump on a whim, and fire the ball up from anywhere on the court without always having a reason. When there was a layer of pressure added, that inconsistency ate at his results and dimmed his confidence, a recipe that observers used like a whip to attack his ability to perform in the clutch.

Ex-athletes seek class-action status |

O'Bannon and his lawyers asked a federal court judge to turn their antitrust lawsuit into a class action, representing thousands of former and current college athletes. The lawsuit demands that the NCAA find a way to cut players in on the billions of dollars earned by college sports from live broadcasts, memorabilia sales, video games and in other areas.
