NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Baseball has appointed its first African American umpire crew chief, promoting Kerwin Danley to the position this week. A person familiar with the move spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the announcement has not yet been made. The 58-year-old Danley has worked two World Series and been on the field for 10 other postseason rounds, including the AL Championship Series last year. He’s also been chosen to call two All-Star Games. Danley called his first game in the majors in 1992 as a minor league fill-in and was hired to the MLB staff in 1998.

UNDATED (AP) — The rapidly spreading virus that has infected more than 81,000 people globally and left more than 2,800 dead continues to threaten the Tokyo Olympics which are scheduled to begin July 24. The three biggest soccer leagues in Asia have gone into recess, as the governments of China, South Korea and Japan try to contain the fallout of the rapidly spreading virus. The surge of postponements of sports events has spread from China, where the outbreak started, to South Korea and Japan.

The McCook Community College men’s basketball team won its fifth straight game Tuesday with an 86-71 win over North Platte which give the Indians a share of the Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference championship and gives MCC a first-round home game in the Region IX tournament – against Lamar Community College, likely Friday.

On Tuesday the Indians took charge of the game early, never trailed, rolled to a 49-24 lead at the half and coasted to the win in the final regular season game which was also sophomore recognition night.

“We’re really good when we play hard,” MCC Coach Kyle Drennan said. “Yes we were up 36 at one point in the second half and played loosey goosey, and that’s just a maturity thing, but we are trending in the right direction.”

MCC shot 60 percent from the field in the first half and held North Platte to 32.4 percent to mount the 25-point lead. The Indians fell off to 40.7 in the second half while the Knights picked it up shooting 54.3 percent.

Sophomore transfer Raheim Sullivan (Toronto, Ontario/Moberly Area Community College) led MCC with 18 points. Sophomore transfer Justin Costello (Omaha /Univ. of Nebraska) and sophomore Tyrik Singh (San Juan, Trinidad and Tobago/Daytona State) both scored 14 points. Singh also pulled down 11 rebounds.

“I’m forever indebted to these three sophomores. In early July a guy who is a first-time head coach called and these guys decided to come here and put their basketball careers in my hands, I’ll never forget them,” Drennan said.

Freshman LeTre Darthard (Denton, Texas) scored 15 points, and freshman Rahkiem Petterson (Midland, Texas) scored nine points.

North Platte shot 42.5 from the field, 36.8 percent on 13 3-point shots and four of nine free throws (44.4 percent). Danilo Matovic led all scorers with 19 points for the Knights, DaVonta Tharpe scored 18 and Luke Christian had 14.

MCC finished shooting 50.9 from the field for the game, made 12 of 26 shots from the 3-point line (46.3) and were 16 of 20 from the free-throw line (80 percent). MCC outrebounded the Knights 46-26.

“I’m proud of this team. We have fight that we didn’t have before, we’ve got some leadership going on, we’re moving the ball unbelievably well and there’s no reason we can be playing in Hutchinson for a shot at the National Tournament,” Drennan said.

With the win MCC finishes 4-2 in the NCCAC tying with Central Community College for the conference title. North Platte and Southeast Community College both finish at 2-4.

North Platte finishes the season 8-19 (3-9 in sub-region play.)

The Indians finish the regular season at 14-15 and a 5-7 mark against Region IX south opponents heading into this weekend’s game with Lamar Community College (14-14, 5-7).

Champaign, Ill. – A shorthanded Nebraska team rallied from a double-digit deficit to force a tie game early in the second half, but Illinois responded with an 11-1 run to regain control and defeat the Huskers 71-59 on Monday night at the State Farm Center.
 
Nebraska (7-20, 2-14 Big Ten Conference) trailed by six points at halftime and faced the same deficit three minutes into the second half when senior guard Haanif Cheatam made a free throw and junior guard Thorir Thornbjarnarson scored in the paint.
 
Illinois responded with a layup, but Thornbjarnarson made a 3-pointer and junior guard Jervay Green scored in transition on an assist from Cheatham to force a 46-46 tie with 15:12 remaining.
 
Illinois (18-9, 10-6) outscored the Huskers by 10 points over the next four minutes to assume control. The Illini went on to lead by as many as 14, while Nebraska drew within no closer than eight.
 
Nebraska played without sophomore point guard Cam Mack, who remained in Lincoln because of an illness. Mack entered Monday one of only five players in power conferences to average at least 12 points, six assists, four rebounds and one steal per game.
 
Without him, the Huskers counted on Cheatmam, who scored 14 points to pace four Nebraska players in double-figure scoring. Dachon Burke Jr. finished with 13 points, Thornbjarnarson scored 11 and freshman center Yvan Ouedraogo had 11 points to go with 10 points for his fifth double-double this season. Ouedraogo has had two straight double-double games, becoming the fourth Husker to accomplish that feat this season.
 
Nebraska shot 42 percent from the field overall while holding Illinois to 39-percent shooting, including just 5-of-19 on 3-pointers. But Illinois held a 42-34 advantage on points in the paint and out-rebounded the Huskers 48-35, including 19 offensive rebounds that resulted in 14 second-chance points. Ayo Dosunmo scored 18 points to pace the Illini, while Kofi Cockburn added 15 points and 10 rebounds.
 
Nebraska trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half and was behind 28-18 with 5:13 remaining before halftime but used a 9-0 run to pull within one point. Burke scored the first five points in the spurt, beginning with a three-point play when he converted a short jumper, was fouled and made a free throw.
 
Cheatham then scored four straight points in transition – two on a lay-up, two on free throws after being fouled on a layup attempt – to pull the Huskers within 28-27.
 
Cockburn ended the run for the Illini with a basket down low, but Ouedraogo scored in the paint, and after Cockburn made one of two free throws, Burke tied the game, 31-31 with 1:42 to play in the first half, on a layup.
 
Illinois, though, closed the half with two 3-pointers by Trent Frazier in the final 25 seconds, the last coming when the guard launched a prayer from 75 feet that left his hands barely before the halftime buzzer. A long replay confirmed Frazier's shot was good, and Illinois led 37-31 at halftime, and never trailed thereafter.
 
Nebraska returns home Thursday night to face Ohio State at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The game is set for 8 PM (CT) and will be carried on ESPN2.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joey Logano has won at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the second straight year, pulling it out in a two-lap sprint to the finish that ended under caution. Logano put his No. 22 Ford for Team Penske in the victory lane by holding off runner-up Matt DiBenedetto, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Austin Dillon. DiBenedetto finished 0.491 behind Logano in his second race for the Wood Brothers, a Penske partner.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ryan Newman has said through a statement read by Roush Racing president Steve Newmark that he suffered a head injury in his crash on the last lap of the Daytona 500 but did not disclose details. Newman wrote that he was fortunate to avoid any internal organ damage or broken bones, and that the doctors have been pleased with his progress over the last few days. He said he is looking forward to getting behind the wheel again. However, there’s no timetable for his return to competitive racing.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Colorado has hired Karl Dorrell as its head football coach, 13 years after he left UCLA. The 56-year-old Dorrell comes to Boulder two weeks after Mel Tucker bolted for Michigan State and 72 hours after Dorrell was named assistant head coach of the Dolphins. Dorrell was 35-27 as UCLA’s head coach before embarking on a 14-season run in the NFL.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Patrick Reed closed with a 4-under 67 to take the Mexico Championship. Reed was two shots back with four to play before reeling off three straight birdies to overtake Bryan DeChambeau for his second World Golf Championship title. He recovered from a wild tee shot into the trees on 18 to two-putt from 35 feet to wrap up his eighth PGA title at 18 under. DeChambeau appeared to seize control with five birdies in a six-hole stretch starting at No. 9.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Capitals acquired winger Ilya Kovalchuk (KOH’-vul-chuhk) from the Canadiens for a 2020 third-round pick. Montreal will retain 50% of Kovalchuk’s $700,000 salary and cap hit. He has six goals and 13 points in 22 games since joining the Canadiens following his contract buyout by the Kings.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Marcus Zegarowski made all seven of his 3-pointers and finished with 25 points, and No. 15 Creighton beat No. 21 Butler 81-59 for its fourth straight win over an AP Top 25 opponent. The Bluejays (22-6, 11-4) have won nine of 10 and remain one game behind Big East-leading Seton Hall. Butler (19-9, 7-8) played the second half without season scoring leader Kamar Baldwin. He limped off the court late in the first half with an injury to his left ankle. Henry Baddley led the Bulldogs with 13 points.

San Diego, Calif. – The Nebraska baseball team (1-5) fell to Arizona, 3-2, at Tony Gwynn Stadium on Sunday afternoon, as Blake Paugh hit two home runs and drove in all three runs for the Wildcats.

NU was held to three hits as a team, as Cam ChickTy Roseberry and Leighton Banjoff each managed one hit apiece for the Big Red.

Sophomore left-hander Cade Povich, making his second start of the season, threw 5.2 innings and allowed three runs, while recording eight strikeouts and only one walk. Kyle Perry tossed 2.1 no-hit scoreless innings out of the bullpen before Max Schreiber held Arizona scoreless for the final 1.0 inning.

In the first inning, Arizona managed a leadoff single, but a flyout and strikeout-caught stealing double play ended a scoreless frame for the Wildcats. In the bottom half, Chick reached on an error in the leadoff spot before three consecutive outs.

The Wildcats drew a one-out walk in the top of the second, but a fielder's choice and flyout kept them from scoring. In the bottom of the second, NU scored one run to take the early lead. Banjoff blistered a one-out single before advancing to third on Mojo Hagge's bunt. Joe Acker's sacrifice fly brought in Banjoff before a strikeout ended the frame.

Povich retired all three Arizona batters in the top of the third. NU also went down in order in the bottom of the third on two flyouts and a groundout.

In the top of the fourth, Blake Paugh launched a solo home run to tie the score at 1-1, but Povich struck out the other three Wildcat hitters. Roseberry hit a one-out single in the bottom of the fourth, but was left on base after back-to-back strikeouts.

Arizona managed one hit in the top of the fifth, but Povich added two strikeouts as the other three Wildcat batters were retired. The Huskers were retired in order in the bottom half.

Paugh blasted another home run in the top of the sixth, a two-run shot, to put Arizona up by a 3-1 margin. NU put runners on second and third in the bottom of the sixth, but couldn't add to its score. Spencer Schwellenbach was hit-by-pitch in the leadoff spot before Luke Roskam reached on a one-out walk, but back-to-back strikeouts kept the Huskers from scoring.

The Wildcats were retired in order with a flyout and two groundouts in the top of the seventh. In the bottom half, NU also went down 1-2-3 with two groundouts before a foul pop-out.

In the top of the eighth, Perry retired all three Arizona hitters with three flyouts. Chick blasted a leadoff home run in the bottom of the eighth to trim the deficit to 3-2 before three consecutive outs ended the frame.

Arizona managed one base hit in the top of the ninth, but each of the other three batters produced outs. In the bottom of the ninth, the Huskers went down in order.

The Huskers return to action next weekend for a three-game series against Arizona State in Phoenix, Ariz., starting on Friday at 7:30 p.m. (CT).

Cathedral City, Calif. --- Despite battling, Nebraska (6-8) came up just short against No. 7 Florida (16-2), falling 6-3 on Sunday in the final game of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

Nebraska had several opportunities to make some noise, scoring the first run and hitting the only home run of the game. However, NU surrendered one unearned run and left two runners on third to give the Gators the edge. Tristen Edwards went 2-for-3 with two runs, two RBIs and a homer. Cam Ybarra hit her first triple as a Husker and Samantha Owen also had one hit. 

Olivia Ferrell dropped to 2-4 on the season. She started and pitched 4.0 innings and gave up three runs on four hits. She also had one strikeout. Courtney Wallace pitched 3.0 innings of relief. She gave up three runs - two earned - on three hits and had two strikeouts. 

Florida's Natalie Lugo (6-1) pitched started and pitched 5.0 innings. She was pulled in the middle of the game but pitched the final inning for a total of 6.0 innings. She gave up three runs on four hits and had eight strikeouts. 

Nebraska got right to work, scoring one run in the bottom of the first. Edwards hit a leadoff single and Unzicker bunted to move her over. Edwards reached third on a fly out and scored on a wild pitch. 

Florida took a 2-1 lead in the third, scoring two runs off three hits. 

In the fourth, Ybarra hit a one-out triple to put the tying run on third, but the Gators got back-to-back strikeouts to end the inning. 

The Gators extended their lead in the fifth, scoring three runs on two hits and one Husker error. 

In the sixth, the Huskers cut the lead to 5-3. Wallace drew a walk and Edwards hit a two-run homer, which forced a Florida pitching change. Unzicker drew another walk and stole second. She moved to third on a ground out but would get stranded there as the Huskers couldn't score her. 

In the final inning, Florida added an insurance run after a hit batter and a double. Nebraska attemped the comeback in the bottom of the inning. Owen hit a leadoff single and Bree Boruff pinch ran for her. However, the Gators retired the next three batters to end the game. 

The Huskers are back in action on Feb. 29 when they travel to Columbia, Mo., to take on Missouri. First pitch is set for 11:30 a.m. A live radio broadcast will be available on Huskers.com.
