     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins say tickets have sold out for Saturday's "TwinsFest at Target Field."  Tickets are still available for Friday and Sunday.  The Twins say ticket inventory is more limited since the annual event moved to Target Field.  The indoor event runs Friday through Sunday. Some 75 current and former Twins players are scheduled to participate.
 
     TwinsFest also will feature the inaugural Twins Yard Sale, giving fans a chance to buy team-issued gear, autographed memorabilia and promotional items from the organization's first 53 years in Minnesota.

     UNDATED (AP) - Concerns about safety in Sochi have prompted some U.S. Olympians to tell their family members to stay home. Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter, who will play for Team USA, is one of them.
 
     Suter said after practice Wednesday that his wife and two young children won't be traveling to Russia for the Winter Games. The long trip is part of the reason, but Suter said recent news about terroristic threats made the decision "a little bit easier."
 
     Suter's friend and Wild teammate Zach Parise will also play for the U.S. team. Parise also advised his parents and relatives not to come. He said the situation is "nerve wracking, that's for sure."

     UNDATED (AP)- The Oklahoma City Thunder would appear to be a problem for the San Antonio Spurs if they were to meet in the NBA Western Conference playoffs. The Thunder improved to 3-0 against the Spurs with a 111-105 victory behind Kevin Durant's 36 points. It's the ninth straight game that Durant has clicked for at least 30 points.  Reggie Jackson had 27 points and Serge Ibaka added 14 points for Oklahoma City, which reclaimed the West's best record at 33-10.
 
     Tony Parker's season-high 37 led all scorers for the Spurs, who lost top defender Kawhi Leonard late in the first half. Leonard left late in the first half after sustaining a non-displaced fracture in his right hand. His status is unknown, but a similar injury is expected to sideline Danny Green for a month.
 
     In other NBA action:
 
     - The Phoenix Suns scored one of their most impressive victories of the season last night. The Suns led from start to finish in routing the Indiana Pacers, the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference, 124-100. Gerald Green had 23 as all five Suns starters hit double figures.
 
     - Gerald Wallace made a driving layup with 2.5 seconds remaining in overtime and the undermanned Boston Celtics broke a 10-game road losing streak with a 113-111 win over the Washington Wizards, who wilted yet again in their long and laborious quest to get above .500. Jeff Green scored a season-high 39 points. Rookie Phil Pressey added a career-high 20 points for Boston.
 
     - D.J. Augustin scored 27 points in a start for Kirk Hinrich and Taj Gibson matched a career high with 26 filling in for Carlos Boozer as the Chicago Bulls posted a 98-87 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls improved to 7-2 since trading Luol Deng to Cleveland. Deng scored just 11 points in his first game against the Bulls.
 
     - Al Jefferson had 24 points and 10 rebounds to lead Charlotte to a 95-91 victory over the Clippers. That's the Bobcats' first win over Los Angeles in their last seven tries.
 
     - DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 40 points, Greivis Vasquez had 17 and the Toronto Raptors snapped a two-game losing streak by beating the Dallas Mavericks 93-85.
 
     - Evan Turner scored a career-high 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 110-106 victory over New York. That snapped the Sixers' three-game skid and sent the Knicks to a fifth straight loss.
 
     - Paul Millsap had 24 points, Jeff Teague added 23 and the Atlanta Hawks hung on to beat the Orlando Magic 112-109.
 
     - Caron Butler scored 30 points and the Milwaukee Bucks rallied from a 13-point deficit in the third quarter for a 104-101 victory over Detroit.
 
     - Houston routed Sacramento 119-98. Dwight Howard had 26 points and 13 rebounds. James Harden added 24 points and nine assists. The Kings struggled after losing top scorers Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins to injuries before halftime. Gay injured his Achilles and Cousins sprained an ankle.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Nik Stauskas scored 26 points, and No. 21 Michigan held off No. 10 Iowa 75-67 last night to remain unbeaten in the Big Ten. The Wolverines have won eight straight to set up a showdown in East Lansing on Saturday night with rival Michigan State, the Big Ten's only other unbeaten team in conference play.
 
     In other AP Top-25 hoops:
 
     - Fifth-ranked Wichita State, the only unbeaten major college team besides Arizona and Syracuse, rallied from a three-point halftime deficit to beat Illinois State 70-55. Cleanthony Early scored 23 points for the 20-0 Shockers.
 
     - Seventh-ranked San Diego State improved to 17-1 by routing San Jose State 75-50. Xavier Thames led the way with 15. The Aztecs have won 16 straight, second-longest winning streak in school history.
 
     - DeAndre Mathieu and Mo Walker each scored 18 points in Minnesota's 81-68 victory over No. 9 Wisconsin, the Badgers' third straight loss after a 16-0 start. Sam Dekker led the Badgers with 20 points and six rebounds.
 
     - Wayne Blackshear scored 16 points to pace a balanced offense that carried No. 12 Louisville to an 86-47 rout of cold-shooting South Florida. The Bulls shot 36 percent and committed 23 turnovers.
 
     - Kendall Anthony scored 21 points and Richmond hung on in the final minute to beat No. 13 Massachusetts 58-55. UMass falls to 16-2.
 
     - Freshman Jabari Parker had 17 points and a season-high 15 rebounds and No. 18 Duke earned its first league road win of the season by beating Miami 67-46.

     - Ryan Spangler scored all 13 of his points in the second half and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds to help No. 25 Oklahoma hold off Texas Christian 77-69.

     UNDATED (AP) - Jiri Tlusty scored the tiebreaking goal in the third period to lift the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers last night. Nathan Gerbe had a highlight-worthy goal and Alexander Semin also scored for Carolina, which improved to 3-0 against Philadelphia this season.
 
     The game originally was scheduled for Tuesday but was postponed due to the snowstorm that hit Philadelphia and much of the Northeast. As a result, Carolina also moved its home game against Ottawa from Friday to Saturday in order to avoid playing on three straight nights. The Hurricanes play at Buffalo tonight.
 
     In other NHL action:
 
     - After having their 13-game home winning streak end two nights ago, the Pittsburgh Penguins came out with a vengeance and routed Montreal 5-1. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made 23 saves for his league-leading 28th victory. Jussi Jokinen scored twice.
 
     - Detroit scored a 5-4 shootout victory over Chicago. Darren Helm scored on Detroit's sixth attempt in the shootout. The defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks faced Detroit for the first time since beating them in overtime in Game 7 of their second-round series last year to complete a comeback from a 3-1 deficit.
 
     - Calgary nipped Phoenix 3-1. Sean Monahan notched his 14th goal for the Flames.

     NEW YORK (AP) -The Yankees have secured the services of highly prized Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. Club co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner says the team has agreed to a $155 million, seven-year contract with the right-hander.
 
     Along with the contract the Yankees must pay a $20 million fee to the Japanese team of the 25-year-old. The acquisition of Tanaka caps an offseason that saw the Yankees add Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.  Tanaka was 24-0 with a 1.27 earned run average last year, leading his team to the Japan Series title.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - The New York Mets settled their last salary arbitration case, agreeing to a one-year contract with Lucas Duda worth $1,637,500. Duda hit .223 with 15 homers, 33 RBIs and 102 strikeouts in 318 at-bats last year.
 
     - Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt is dealing with an undisclosed health issue and will not be a guest instructor for the Philadelphia Phillies at spring training this year. Schmidt still plans to visit camp in the middle of March, but the Phillies say their former third baseman won't serve as an instructor for the first time in more than decade so he can "remain near his doctors."
 
     - Outfielder Grady Sizemore has agreed to a $750,000, one-year contract with the Boston Red Sox. A three-time All-Star, the 31-year-old has played eight major league seasons, all with Cleveland. He hit .269 with 139 homers and 458 RBIs.
 
     - Former slugger Bo Jackson is back with the Chicago White Sox, this time as a team ambassador. Jackson will make appearances for the organization and serve as a team representative in the community and throughout baseball.
