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.

Dean Blais, who led Omaha to three NCAA hockey tournaments in eight years, is stepping down as head coach....

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Dean Blais, who led Omaha to three NCAA hockey tournaments in eight years, is stepping down as head coach. Blais' announcement today came two days after the Mavericks lost their National Collegiate Hockey Conference first-round playoff series to Western Michigan, ending a 17-17-5 season. Blais had three 20-win seasons, led the Mavericks to the 2015 Frozen Four and had a record of 146-133-30.
 
     The 66-year-old Blais won two national championships in 10 years at North Dakota and also coached the United States to the gold medal in the 2010 World Junior Championships.  He was an assistant on the 1992 U.S. Olympic team and also an assistant with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
 
     Athletic director Trev Alberts said Blais would assist him in finding a new coach.

     DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - New Orleans (20-11) is making its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1996, when it opens the tournament this evening in Dayton, Ohio, facing Mount St. Mary's (19-15), beginning at 6:40 p.m. Eastern Time.
 
     New Orleans guard Christavious Gill says, "It's for everybody in New Orleans who has been in New Orleans since the devastation of Katrina." Mount St. Mary's Junior Robinson is the shortest player in Division I this season at 5-foot-5. He averages 14 points and 33 minutes per game. Coach Jamion Christian says. "You look at him, he's 5-foot-5, 165 pounds. He's worked really hard to get up to 165 pounds, really. He's a special player because he's got enormous heart."
 
     The winner faces No. 1 Villanova on Thursday in Buffalo.
 
     Kansas State (20-13) takes on comeback kids Wake Forest (19-13) with a scheduled start time of 9:10 p.m. EST in Dayton. Wake Forest overcame deficits of 19, 14 and 13 points to win its last three games in the regular season. The only other Division I team to win three straight games while overcoming double-digit deficits this season is Kentucky. And the term "kids" applies: eight of its 13 scholarship players are underclassmen.
 
    The winner advances to play Cincinnati in a first-round game.

     ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The winter storm wreaking havoc in the Northeast has forced postponement of an NHL and an NIT game and the cancellation of most flights in and out Buffalo as several college basketball teams head in for the start of the NCAA Tournament. Tonight's game between the Winnipeg Jets and New Jersey Devils was postponed and rescheduled for March 28 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The NIT game between UNC-Greensboro and Syracuse also was postponed and rescheduled for tomorrow night in the Carrier Dome.

     SEATTLE (AP) - Eddie Lacy's agent says the former Green Bay running back is joining the Seattle Seahawks. Lacy's management group, Sports Trust Advisors, said today on Twitter that the four-year veteran has agreed to terms with the Seahawks. Seattle has been plagued by injuries at the position in recent years.
 
     Lacy was the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran for more than 1,100 yards in 2014, but has since been slowed by injuries and lost favor with Packers coach Mike McCarthy at times. Last season, Lacy played in only five games, sidelined by ankle problems.

     FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - The Boston Red Sox say left-hander David Price is likely to start the season on the disabled list because of his sore pitching elbow. Starting the second season of a $217 million, seven-year contract, Price has not yet appeared in an exhibition game.
 
     Manager John Farrell says "it would be hard to see him ready to go at the start of the season. We really won't have any kind of idea until he gets on the mound the first time and right now, I don't know when that's going to be."
 
     Boston had hoped for a formidable rotation headed by Price, Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello and Chris Sale, acquired in December from the Chicago White Sox.

     SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Colorado Rockies catcher Tom Murphy will miss four to six weeks with a hairline fracture in his right forearm.
 
     Manager Bud Black said Murphy broke his arm Saturday in a game against the Cubs when he was hit by Anthony Rizzo's bat while throwing to second base on a steal attempt. The ball sailed into center field and Rizzo was called for interference. Murphy stayed in the game until the seventh, as planned. His injury wasn't discovered until later. Black says Murphy is in a splint but won't need surgery.
 
     Murphy joins a long list of Rockies sidelined during spring training.
