KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It'll be an all-Kansas Big 12 tournament championship. The Kansas State Wildcats secured their spot in today's title game against rival Kansas with a 68-57 victory over Oklahoma State in the semifinals. The Jayhawks advanced by beating Iowa State 88-73.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — In a season of disappointing finishes, the Missouri men's basketball team has been ousted from the Southeastern Conference tournament with yet another one. The Tigers lost 64-62 to Mississippi last night after the Rebels rallied from a 14-point second-half deficit. Derrick Millinghaus' driving basket with 1.1 seconds left was the game-winner. Missouri finished its first SEC season 22-10 heading into a still likely NCAA tournament berth.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Another day, another free agent signing for the Kansas City Chiefs. Veteran offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz is expected to bolster the team's depth at both guard and tackle. He started 16 games for the Carolina Panthers in 2010 but missed the following season with a hip injury. Last season he was a backup in Minnesota.

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have named Adam Wainwright as their opening day starter, and he showed why in a victory over the Washington Nationals. Wainwright gave up just one run in six strong innings in the 5-1 exhibition victory for St. Louis. Matt Adams hit a three-run homer to provide most of the offense.
