TENNIS-HALL OF FAME

Tennis Hall gains four

NEW YORK (AP) — Five-time Grand Slam singles champion Martina Hingis (HING'-gihs) heads the 2013 class for the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The other new members of the Hall announced today are Cliff Drysdale, Charlie Pasarell (pas-uh-REHL'), and Ion Tiriac (EE'-ahn TEER'-ee-ak). Australian player Thelma Coyne Long's election was announced earlier.

Hingis won a total of 15 major titles, including nine in women's doubles and one in mixed. The first came at Wimbledon in women's doubles in 1996, at the age of 15 years, 9 months, making her the youngest Grand Slam champion in tennis history.

T25-SCHEDULE

Jayhawks top the schedule

UNDATED (AP) — There are just two games tonight in men's college basketball involving a ranked school. The sixth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, who won both of their games last week to up their record to 25-4, lead the way with a home game against Texas Tech. The other game has No. 10 Louisville at home to Cincinnati.

T25-POLL

Bulldogs poises to take over top spot

UNDATED (AP) — A combination of winning both games they played last week and a loss by last week's top-team, Indiana, has Gonzaga (gahn-ZAG'-uh) in position to take over the top spot in this week's AP Top-25 poll. The newest version will come out later today. The Bulldogs, who beat BYU and Portland last week, are 29-2. Indiana dropped its game at Minnesota last week before beating Iowa.

NBA-SCHEDULE

Miami looks for 15th straight

UNDATED (AP) — Miami's Heat are looking for their 15th straight win tonight with a game against the Timberwolves at Minnesota. The 43-14 Heat, who have won six straight on the road, are 17-11 on the road for the season, while the T-Wolves are a sub .500 club at home with just 13 wins against 14 defeats. A 15th straight win would set a new franchise record for Miami.

The longest winning streak in the NBA, next to Miami's, belongs to Denver. The Nuggets have won four in a row and tonight are home to Atlanta.

Golden State has fallen on hard times. The Warriors have dropped four straight and tonight are home to the Raptors, who have lost four in a row as well.

The remaining games tonight feature the Knicks in Cleveland against the Cavaliers, Orlando at New Orleans, the Bucks at home to the Jazz and Charlotte at Portland.

NHL-SCHEDULE

Day of rest for the Blackhawks

UNDATED (AP) —The Chicago Blackhawks continue to dominate news from the NHL. The Hawks maintained their unbeaten start to the season yesterday with a 2-1 win over Detroit. Chicago has scored at least a point in every game played this season, and that's a league record for the start of a new season. In that time they have had 12 one-goal victories and seven of the wins have come in overtime or a shootout.

The Blackhawks have the night off. They next play Tuesday night at home against Minnesota.

A check of tonight's schedule shows just four games with New Jersey skating at Toronto, Pittsburgh home to Tampa Bay, Anaheim at Phoenix and the Kings at home to Nashville.
