SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Chris Bosh hit a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left to lift short-handed Miami over San Antonio 88-86 and give the Heat a sweep of the season series among the contenders for the best record in the NBA. Miami played without stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade who were sidelined with injuries.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Monique Reid hit two free throws with 2.6 seconds left and Louisville held Brittney Griner in check as Louisville stunned top-ranked and defending champ Baylor 82-81 in the regional semifinals of the NCAA women's tournament. The Cardinals led most of the game and held Griner without a field goal in the first half. She wound up with 14 points.

HOUSTON (AP) — Rick Ankiel (an-KEEL') hit a pinch-hit, three-run homer to help Houston made its American League debut with an 8-2 win over Texas in the Major League season opener. The Astros earned their first opening day victory since 2008 and gave Bo Porter his first win as a major league manager.

HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — D.A. Points closed out a 6-under 66 after a 2 hours, 38 minute weather delay to win the Houston Open and earn a spot in the Masters. Points edged Henrik Stenson and Billy Horschel by a shot. Stenson also earned a Masters invitation with his runner-up finish.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins will have to try to extend their 15-game winning streak without captain Sidney Crosby, who has a broken jaw and is out indefinitely. The NHL scoring leader was struck in the mouth by a puck in Saturday's win over the Islanders and underwent surgery. His status will be updated later in the week.
