OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Kevin Abel and Jake Mulholland combined on a four-hitter, Tyler Malone hit his third home run of the College World Series, and Oregon State survived some ninth-inning drama to beat Mississippi State 5-2 to reach the best-of-three finals against Arkansas. As they did in 2006, when they won the first of two straight national titles, the Beavers came back from losing their CWS opener to win four straight and make the finals.
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) - Collin Sexton didn't waste any time showing the Cavaliers he's fearless. The first-round draft pick has chosen to wear No. 2 in Cleveland. That's the number previously worn by All-Star guard Kyrie Irving. Sexton said he doesn't feel any pressure to live up to Irving's lofty standards and intends to set his own goals. The Cavs are hoping Sexton's arrival will not only help them win but convince LeBron James to re-sign this summer.
