     UNDATED (AP)- After winning a pair of nail-biters its previous two games, top-ranked Syracuse ran out of miracles last night. Boston College earned its first victory over a No. 1-ranked team since 2009 by upsetting the previously undefeated Orange 62-59 in overtime. BC had lost its previous five games and improved to 7-19 overall, 3-10 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
 
     Olivier Hanlan and Patrick Heckman hit 3-pointers in overtime to spark the Eagles. Lonnie Jackson, a 56 percent free throw shooter during the season, calmly made four straight free throws in the final 26.2 seconds to ice the upset. Hanlan led the Eagles with 20.
 
     The Eagles came to Syracuse with heavy hearts and lots of determination. Longtime basketball media contact and sports information assistant Dick Kelley died last week after a two-year battle with ALS. His funeral was Tuesday. The Eagles were wearing "DK" patches on their uniforms.
 
     Syracuse is 25-1 overall and 12-1 in the ACC heading into its game at fifth-ranked Duke Saturday night.
 
     In other AP Top-25 hoops:
 
     - Second-ranked Florida escaped upset-minded Auburn 70-66. Patric Young made a pair of free throws with 19 seconds left and finished with 17 points and seven rebounds for the Gators, who could take over the No.1 spot in the AP rankings.
 
     - Third-ranked Wichita State topped Loyola of Chicago 88-74. Fred VanFleet led the Shockers with 22 points, eight rebounds and six assists. With Syracuse's defeat, the Shockers are the only undefeated Division 1 men's team at 28-0.
 
     - Fourth-ranked Arizona escaped a scare with a 67-63 overtime victory over Utah. Gabe York had 15 points for the 24-2 Wildcats.
 
     - Jordair Jett scored 24 of his 25 points after halftime and Rob Loe hit two key 3-pointers in overtime as No. 10 St. Louis escaped with its 18th straight win, 89-85 over George Mason.
 
     - Doug McDermott scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half and Ethan Wragge added 22 as No. 11 Creighton (KRAY'-tuhn) beat Marquette 85-70.
 
     - Sean Kilpatrick hit six 3-pointers and scored 23 points as No. 7 Cincinnati routed Central Florida, 77-49.
 
     - Jordan Adams scored 28 points and No. 23 UCLA returned to the national rankings with an impressive 86-66 victory against California.

     TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Derek Jeter says he decided to retire after the upcoming season explaining, "this is the right time."  The New York Yankees captain held a news conference today, a week after making an announcement many of his teammates said shocked and saddened them.
 
     Jeter, who turns 40 in June, was limited to 17 games last season, hitting 190 with one homer and seven RBIs after breaking an ankle in the 2012 AL championship series opener.
 
     Also from spring training:
 
     - Cincinnati has come to terms with starter Homer Bailey on a six-year, $105 million contract a day before his scheduled arbitration hearing. The 27-year-old pitcher made $5.35 million last season when he went 11-12 with a 3.49 ERA. That followed a 13-10 campaign in 2012 with a 3.69 ERA.
 
     - David Ortiz wants a one-year contract extension with the Red Sox through 2015 and would like to have that situation resolved pretty soon so it doesn't become a distraction. Boston's designated hitter is in the final season of a $26 million, two-year contract.
 
     - Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez may miss the first few games of spring training after having a non-cancerous polyp removed from his colon. Manager Ron Roenicke says that the polyp was discovered during a routine colonoscopy.

     KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) - Ted Ligety has won the giant slalom at the Sochi Games with a dominating performance today, becoming the first American man to win two Olympic gold medals in Alpine skiing.  Skiers from France took the second and third place.
 
     In other Olympic highlights:
 
     - Bode Miller will skip the last Alpine race at the Sochi Olympics, the slalom, after tweaking his surgically repaired left knee during today's giant slalom. Miller finished 20th in the giant slalom, more than 2 1/2 seconds slower than gold medalist Ted Ligety. Given that he'll be 40 during the 2018 Winter Games, the GS might have been Miller's last Olympic race.
 
     - It will be Team USA and Canada in the men's hockey semifinals on Friday (Noon Eastern time). That's a rematch of the gold medal game in Vancouver four years ago. Dustin Brown banged in a go-ahead goal late in the first period and the United States went on to dominate the Czech Republic 5-2, earning a spot in the Olympic hockey semifinals for the second straight time.  James van Riemsdyk gave the Americans a lead 1:39 into the game. Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots to earn his third win of the tournament.  
 
     - Canada advanced with a 2-1 win over Latvia.  Shea Weber scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 6:54 to play while Carey Price made 15 saves for the defending Olympic champion Canadians.
 
     - Earlier in the day, Russia was eliminated after a 3-1 loss to Finland.  Finland will take on top-seed Sweden in the other semifinal. Sweden blanked Slovakia 5-0.
 
     - Defending gold medalist Yuna Kim of South Korea leads after the women's short program in figure skating. U.S. national champ Gracie Gold is in fourth place, six points off the lead.
 
     - In women's bobsled, Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse of Canada have rallied to win their second straight Olympic women's bobsledding gold medal.  Humphries and Moyse edged Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams of the United States by 0.10 seconds after four runs. The Canadians entered Wednesday trailing by about a quarter-second.  Williams becomes the fifth Olympian to medal in different events at the Summer and Winter Games. She has gold and silver medals from three Olympic appearances as a sprinter.  Americans Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans took the bronze. It's the first time two U.S. sleds have medaled in women's bobsledding.
