End of 9-game losing streak rare bright spot for Creighton

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Devin Brooks and James Milliken jumped around together in an embrace at midcourt after the final buzzer.

Column: Think you know the Super Bowl? Take the quiz

PHOENIX (AP) By now, even the most casual fan has learned that Marshawn Lynch is interesting only because he refuses to say anything. Richard Sherman? He talks all the time and provides far more insight to the Super Bowl than Tom Brady, who figures to spend the game trying his best to avoid throwing to him. But do you really know everything you need to know about this Super Bowl...

Carroll, Belichick both have sons on Super Bowl staffs

PHOENIX (AP) Nate Carroll almost passed on the chance to own a Super Bowl ring. Following the 2012 season when Gus Bradley was hired as the head coach in Jacksonville, Carroll was offered a job on the Jaguars' staff.

Hoodie and scowl hide the Belichick impact

PHOENIX (AP) He's been called the Evil Genius, and he's been fined for spying on an opponent. And now there are questions about deflated footballs. Any visual portrait of Bill Belichick likely has him wearing a hoodie - and a scowl. Many of his media duties are marked by terse answers or outright stonewalling. All of which masks the impact and longevity of the New England Patriots...

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did not want anyone to acknowledge it was his 66th birthday, let alone celebrate it.
