TODAY'S THOUGHT

At Calvary we see God's faithfulness and our unfaithfulness come to sharpest expression. The supremely faithful, ever-trusting Son of God crucified by rebels, for rebels. Friends, look at the cross.

     SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Freshman Lauri Markkanen scored 20 points as second-seeded Arizona cruised to a 100-82 victory over Number 15 North Dakota Thursday night in the first round of the NCAA's West Regional.
 
     Arizona used a 13-1 run early in the first half to take 24-13 lead and never looked back. The Wildcats (31-4) lead 53-37 at halftime thanks to a dominant 16-point half from Markkanen and a 61.1 shooting percentage in the first 20 minutes.
 
     The Wildcats will face seventh-seeded Saint Mary's in the second round on Saturday. The Gaels beat VCU 85-77.
 
     It was almost as if Arizona's players were taking turns scoring. Allonzo Trier continued his late-season success and had a highlight tomahawk dunk to push the lead to 44-27. He finished with 18 points.
 
     Rawle Alkins was aggressive early and scored 20 while Dusan Ristic started hot in the second half and added 12.
 
     Markkanen, who's expected to be a high first-round NBA draft pick, was a constant as North Dakota couldn't match his size (7-foot, 230 pounds) or skill.
 
     Quinton Hooker led the Fighting Hawks (22-10) with 25 points and Drick Bernstine added 20.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    VERMILLION, S.D. (UND) - Defending WNIT champion South Dakota held serve with a 78-55 win in the opening round of this season's tournament Thursday evening at the Sanford Coyote Sports Center. Senior Makailah Dyer paced UND with 11 points while fellow classmates Leah Szabla and Samantha Roscoe added 10 and eight points, respectively. Sophomore Bailey Strand tripled three times for nine points in the loss. UND ends its season at 20-11.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Jordan Mathews scored 16 points to help Gonzaga slowly pull away from South Dakota State for a 66-46 victory and avoid the first 1 vs. 16 upset in the history of the NCAA Tournament.
 
     It looked possible for a while.
 
     The Jackrabbits (18-17), champions of the Summit League, led for the first 17 minutes of Thursday's game in the West region and stayed in range for most of the game.
 
     They did it without a breakout game from Mike Daum. The nation's second-leading scorer finished 7 for 16 from the floor with 17 points - more than eight below his average.
 
     Daum did a nice job on Gonzaga's 7-foot-1 center, Przemek Karnowski, holding him to four points over the first 32 minutes.
 
     But Karnowski , who finished with 10 points, scored three straight buckets for the Bulldogs (33-1) to help them expand the lead to 20 with 5 minutes left, and it was over.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Victor Rask scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:24 to play and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Minnesota Wild 3-1 Thursday night.
 
     Teuvo Teravainen added an empty-net goal with 1:24 remaining. Derek Ryan also scored for the Hurricanes and Eddie Lack stopped 30 shots. Carolina has points in five straight games (3-0-2).
 
     Mikael Granlund scored for Minnesota and Devan Dubnyk finished with 21 saves. The Wild had won six straight overall against the Hurricanes, who improved to 6-1-2 against Minnesota at home.
 
     The Wild finished a 1-4 road trip to give them five losses in their last six.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has confirmed Adrian Peterson's time with the team is over.
 
     The Vikings signed Oakland running back Latavius Murray early Thursday after a long night of negotiations. Then Spielman told reporters in the afternoon that he spoke with Peterson to wish him well, clarifying that the franchise's all-time leading rusher will be playing elsewhere in 2017.
 
     Peterson, the 2012 league MVP, played 10 seasons for the Vikings. Murray, who will join Jerick McKinnon as the team's top two running backs, spent four years with the Raiders. He rushed for 788 yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns last season despite missing two games with a toe injury.
 
     Also in the NFL:
 
     - The Atlanta Falcons have bolstered their defensive line by agreeing to terms with two-time Pro Bowler Dontari Poe.
 
     - The Cowboys have re-signed veteran running back Darren McFadden and guard Jonathan Cooper.
 
     - The Raiders have agreed to a deal with free-agent tight Jared Cook, a contract that the NFL Network says is worth $12.2 million over two years with $5 million guaranteed.
 
     - The Rams have signed linebacker Connor Barwin, one week after he was released by the Eagles.
 
     - Free agent guard Jermon Bushrod has re-signed with the Dolphins after starting all 16 games for them last season.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica will miss the rest of the season with an injured left foot, a significant loss for a team trying to get back into the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
 
     Bjelica was injured against Boston on Wednesday night and left the arena in a walking boot. The Wolves say Bjelica had an MRI on Thursday and is seeking opinions on his treatment options.
 
     The Serbian had gradually emerged as a key contributor off the bench for the Timberwolves. After struggling to adapt to new coach Tom Thibodeau's system in the first few months of the season, Bjelica was playing his best basketball during the Wolves' recent surge.
 
     Over the last eight games before he was injured, he was averaging 9.9 points and 7.4 rebounds.
 
     The Wolves trail Denver by four games for the eighth seed.

     UNDATED (AP) - Middle Tennessee was the highest seed to advance to the second round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament on Thursday.
 
     Reggie Upshaw scored 19 points and Giddy Potts added 15 as 12th-seeded Middle Tennessee knocked out Minnesota, 81-72 in Milwaukee. Upshaw delivered seven straight points, including a 3-pointer and a reverse layup during a 7-3 run to help give the Blue Raiders a 10-point lead with 3:40 left. The flurry came after the Gophers trimmed much of a 17-point lead.
 
     Next up for Middle Tennessee is No. 4 Butler, which pulled away late in a 76-64 decision over Winthrop. Avery Woodson scored 18 points by tying a career high with six 3-pointers for the Bulldogs.
 
     A 12-2 run in the middle of the second half gave Butler a 60-43 lead with less than 8 minutes left and put the game out of reach.
 
     Also in Milwaukee, Vincent Edwards scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half to help Purdue hold off Vermont 80-70. Caleb Swanigan added 16 points, 14 rebounds and four assists as the fourth-seeded Boilermakers earned their first tourney win in five years.
 
     Next up for Purdue is Iowa State after Monte Morris had 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists to push the Cyclones past Nevada, 84-73. Deonte Burton added 14 points and eight rebounds in the Cyclones' 10th win in 11 games.
 
     Gonzaga was the first No. 1 seed in action, and the Bulldogs trailed for the first 17 minutes before earning a 66-46 win over South Dakota State in Salt Lake City. Jordan Mathews scored 16 points to help the Zags stay afloat while Przemek Karnowski was held to just four points through the first 32 minutes. Karnowski came through late in the game, hitting three straight buckets to put Gonzaga up by 20 with five minutes left.
 
     The Bulldogs now prepare for Northwestern, which earned a victory in its first NCAA Tournament appearance. Bryant McIntosh hit a pair of tiebreaking free throws with 15 seconds left to send the Wildcats past Vanderbilt. Northwestern squandered a 15-point lead before McIntosh was inexplicably fouled by Matthew Fisher-Davis in the backcourt with the Wildcats in the double-bonus.
 
     Gonzaga's arch-rivals also won in Utah as Jock Landale delivered 18 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 7 Saint Mary's knock out VCU, 85-77. Joe Rahon and Calvin Hermanson finished with 16 points apiece for the Gaels, who led by 15 at halftime but couldn't put away the Rams until the closing moments.
 
     No. 2 Arizona had no trouble with North Dakota as freshman Lauri Markkanen scored 20 points in a 100-82 pounding at Salt Lake City. Rawle Alkins contributed 20 points to the romp, and Allonzo Trier had 18 as the Wildcats moved on to play Saint Mary's.
 
     The defending champs were able to advance with a strong second half as No. 1 Villanova thumped Mount St. Mary's, 76-56 in Buffalo. Donte DiVincenzo scored 21 points for the Wildcats, who opened the second half on a 21-6 run. Villanova survived a poor shooting performance by Kris Jenkins, who missed his first 10 attempts and finished 2-for-13.
 
     Bronson Koenig (KAY'-nihg) drained a school-record eight 3-pointers and finished with 28 points as Wisconsin ousted Virginia Tech, 84-74. Nigel Hayes chipped in 16 points to help the Badgers earn a second-round meeting with Villanova.
 
     There were victories by West Virginia and Notre Dame in Buffalo.
 
     Nathan Adrian had 12 points and 10 rebounds as the Mountaineers escaped with an 86-80 win against Bucknell. Tarik Phillip scored 16 points for the West Region's fourth-seeded Mountaineers, who pulled away after wasting double-digit leads in each half.
 
     Bonzie Colson scored 18 points and Matt Farrell added 16 to help the Irish pull out a 60-58 win over No. 12 Princeton. Notre Dame saw an 11-point, second-half lead cut to one before ending the Tigers' 19-game winning streak.
 
     Virginia and Florida have advanced to the second round in Orlando.
 
     London Perrantes scored 24 points and Marial Shayok added a career-high 23 off the bench as the Cavaliers eked out a 76-71 win against No. 13 UNC Wilmington. Perrantes scored 19 points in the second half to help Virginia erase all of a 15-point deficit.
 
     The Gators got 24 points and seven rebounds from Devin Robinson in an 80-65 downing of East Tennessee State. Kasey Hill chipped in 14 points for Florida, which shot 1-for-10 from 3-point range in the first half before earning a meeting with the Cavaliers.
 
     No. 11 Xavier pulled off a minor upset as Trevon Blueitt scored 21 points and Sean O'Mara had 18 in the Musketeers's 76-65 decision over Maryland in Orlando. Bluiett came through with 18 second-half points, including three 3-pointers while Xavier outscored the Terrapins 14-0 to take a 61-50 lead with 9:03 left.
 
     Florida State came away with an 86-80 win against Florida Gulf Coast behind Dwayne Bacon's 25 points Jonathan Isaac had a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds as the third-seeded Seminoles won their first tournament game since 2012 to set up a meeting with Xavier.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Kevin Love returned to the Cleveland Cavaliers' lineup on Thursday, but the star was LeBron James.
 
     The Cavs won a matchup of division leaders as James scored 17 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter of a 91-83 downing of Utah. James was 13 of 20 from the field and had 10 rebounds with six assists.
 
     Love played 19 minutes and scored eight of his 10 points in the first quarter. Love had left knee surgery Feb. 14 and was originally expected to miss six weeks.
 
     Kyrie Irving had 21 points before sitting out the fourth quarter due to tightness in his left knee.
 
     Also in the NBA on Thursday:
 
     - Klay Thompson scored 21 of his 29 points in the first quarter and the Golden State Warriors clinched their third straight Pacific Division title by ripping Orlando, 122-92. Stephen Curry added 25 points and nine assists after appearing to injure his right foot in the opening minutes.
 
     - Russell Westbrook notched his 34th triple-double of the season with 24 points, 16 assists and 10 boards to lead Oklahoma City's 123-102 romp over the Raptors in Toronto.

     - Denver picked up its fourth straight win as Will Barton scored a career-high 35 points and Nikola Jokic recorded his fifth triple-double of the season in a 129-114 win over the Clippers. Jokic finished with 17 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists for the Nuggets, who are 2 1/2 games ahead of Portland for the last Western Conference playoff slot.
 
     Brook Lopez scored 24 points and the Brooklyn Nets dominated the second half to beat the Knicks 121-110.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Viktor Arvidsson scored 1:05 into overtime to give Nashville a 2-1 victory at Washington. Pekka Rinne made 22 saves and blanked the Caps after Brett Connolly's goal midway through the first period.
