     RENO, Nev. (AP) - Ahmaad Rorie scored 30 points, 22 in the second half, and Fabijan Krslovic had two critical baskets late on his way to a double-double to lead top-seeded Montana to an 84-76 win over eighth-seeded North Dakota on Thursday in the Big Sky Conference quarterfinals.
 
     Krslovic had the first of back-to-back jumpers with three minutes left to start an 8-0 run. That gave the Grizzlies (24-7), who have won eight straight over UND, an 82-72 lead when Rorie made two free throws with a minute left. That was the only double-figure lead in a game that had seven ties and 12 lead changes.
 
     Michael Oguine had 23 points, and Sayeed Pridgett joined Krslovic's double-double of 12 points and 13 rebounds with 14 points and 11 rebounds for Montana, which fifth-seeded Northern Colorado in Friday's first semifinal.
 
     Dale Jones scored 24 points, Cortez Seales had 22 and Geno Crandall 17 for the Fightin' Hawks (12-20), who are joining the Summit League next season.
 
     Jones had 22 points and Oguine 15 in the first half that ended tied at 42. UND was 8 of 15 from distance, Montana 6 of 9.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kyrie Irving returned from a one-game absence to help Boston fend off Minnesota, finishing with 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists to pace the Celtics in a 117-109 victory over the Timberwolves on Thursday night.
 
     Al Horford added 20 points, eight rebounds, six assists and tough defense on Karl-Anthony Towns for the Celtics, who stayed two games behind Toronto in the Eastern Conference race with their sixth win in seven games. They have three more losses than the Raptors.
 
     Nemanja Bjelica scored a career-high 30 points on 11-for-16 shooting, including 6 for 9 from 3-point range. His first 20-10 game in the NBA was ultimately wasted in the third straight loss for the Timberwolves, who are still trying to find their way without injured All-Star Jimmy Butler. They trailed by as many as 18 points soon after halftime, too much to overcome some second-half surges behind Bjelica and 18 points from Taj Gibson on 8-for-10 shooting.
 
     The Wolves were within five at 88-83 in the fourth quarter, but every other time they were on the verge of cutting the margin to two possessions Irving and the Celtics had an answer on the other end.
 
     Marcus Morris added 17 points for the Celtics, whose victory was tempered a bit by the hard landing Jaylen Brown took on his back after a dunk late in the third quarter. He left with 14 points for evaluation of concussion-like symptoms.
 
     Irving, the five-time All-Star whose first season with the Celtics has been stellar save for some minor injuries, was good to go after sitting out at Chicago on Monday to rest a sore left knee that was aggravated in the previous game. The Celtics are only 12-10 in their last 22 games, and Gordon Hayward won't be walking through the door anytime soon, so Irving's leadership and production down the stretch and into the playoffs will be critical.
 
     Towns finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Jamal Crawford pitched in 15 points off the bench. But Andrew Wiggins went 1 for 8 from 3-point range and 6 for 21 from the floor for a quiet 13 points.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Top-ranked Virginia was able to breeze into the ACC semifinals with a dominant performance against Louisville.
 
     Kyle Guy scored 19 points and the Cavaliers improved to 29-2 by whipping the Cardinals, 75-58. Guy shot 7 of 14 from the field and 4 of 6 from 3-point range in his first game since spraining his left knee during the Cavaliers' regular-season finale against Notre Dame.
 
     Devon Hall had 14 points for the Cavs, who damaged the Cardinals' shot at an NCAA Tournament berth.
 
     Next up for the Cavaliers is No. 19 Clemson, which has reached the ACC semifinals for the first time in seven years by knocking off Boston College, 90-82. Gabe DeVoe scored 25 points and Shelton Mitchell had 21 for the Tigers, who were 9 of 17 from beyond the arc.
 
     Also in the ACC:
 
     - Fifth-ranked Duke was an 88-70 winner over Notre Dame behind Marvin Bagley III's 33 points and 17 boards. Grayson Allen nailed his first five 3-point attempts and finished with 23 points to help the Blue Devils move into the semifinals against North Carolina.
 
     - The 12th-ranked Tar Heels knocked off 24th-rated Miami, 82-65 as Theo Pinson scored a career-high 25 points and had 11 rebounds. Pinson scored 10 points in 3 1/2 minutes of the second half, including a corner 3 to make it 69-63 with 4:25 left.
 
     In the Big East tournament:
 
     - Jay Wright became the winningest coach in Villanova history with 414 as the second-ranked Wildcats hammered Marquette, 94-70 in the quarterfinals. Mikal Bridges hit four 3s and delivered 25 points, while teammate and Big East player of the year Jalen Brunson scored 21.
 
     - Third-ranked Xavier has reached the semifinals after Trevon Bluiett scored 27 points and Kaiser Gates had 16 in an 88-60 rout of St. John's. The Musketeers outscored the Red Storm 55-31 in the second half and improved to 28-4.
 
     Over in the Big 12 tourney
 
     -  Malik Newman poured in a career-high 30 points and Svi Mykhailiuk added 13 in leading No. 9 Kansas to an 82-68 win over Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals. Devonte Graham added 10 points, four rebounds and nine assists as the top-seeded Jayhawks moved to 25-7.
 
     - Keenan Evans scored 25 points and Jarrett Culver added 13 to send No. 14 Texas Tech to a 73-69 win against Texas in the quarterfinals. The Red Raiders won for just the second time in their last six games despite Jacob Young's 29 career-high points on 6-for-7 shooting from 3-point range for the Longhorns.
 
     - West Virginia reached the Big 12 semifinals as Esa Ahmad contributed 21 points and Dexter Miles Jr. added 19 to send the 18th-ranked Mountaineers past Baylor, 78-65. Jevon Carter also had 18 points and 11 assists as WVU earned a meeting with Texas Tech.
 
     In other conference tournament games involving ranked teams:
 
     - Allonzo Trier scored 22 points and 15th-rated Arizona went on a 14-0 run in the second half to beat Colorado, 83-67 and advanced to the Pac-12 semifinals. Dusan Ristic had 15 points and 11 rebounds to help the Wildcats overcome a tough performance by Deandre Ayton, who had just 10 points on 4-for-14 shooting.
 
     - Jordan Caroline had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 22 Nevada to a 79-74 victory over UNLV in the Mountain West quarterfinals.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Boston Celtics are back within two games of the Toronto Raptors as the two teams battle for the Atlantic Division title and the No. 1 seed in the NBA's Eastern Conference playoffs.
 
     Kyrie Irving finished with 23 points on 9 of 15 shooting and had eight assists as the Celtics won for the sixth time in seven games, 117-109 at Minnesota. Al Horford chipped in 20 points and eight boards for the Celtics, who improved to 46-20.
 
     The Timberwolves dropped their third in a row despite Nemanja Bjelica's game-high 30 points.
 
     Minnesota fell into a second-place tie with Oklahoma City in the Northwest Division, two games behind Portland.
 
     Checking out Thursday's other NBA action:
 
     - Kevin Durant's 37 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks carried the Warriors to a 110-107 win over the Spurs. Draymond Green hit the go-ahead basket down the stretch had had a triple-double of 11 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Golden State improved to 7-0 since the All-Star break despite playing most of the game without Steph Curry, who was lost for the night to a rolled right ankle early in the first quarter.
 
     - Russell Westbrook had 27 points, eight rebounds and nine assists as the Thunder crushed the Suns, 115-87. Paul George added 21 points and Corey Brewer had 17 on 6 of 11 shooting in his third game with Oklahoma City.
 
     - Hassan Whiteside scored 26 points and Dwyane Wade added 16 as the Heat earned a 108-99 victory over the visiting 76ers. Josh Richardson had 13 points for Miami, which wasted a 12-point, first-half lead before controlling the first 10 minutes of the fourth quarter.
 
     - Allen Crabbe made his first six 3-point attempts and finished with 29 points and eight rebounds as the Nets downed the Hornets, 125-111 to end a four-game skid. Caris Levert scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds  off the bench as Brooklyn sent Charlotte to its fifth straight loss since a five-game winning streak.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The Tampa Bay Lightning still lead the NHL's Atlantic Division by six points over Boston after both teams won on Thursday.
 
     Anthony Cirelli scored once and set up two others as the Lightning rolled to their fourth straight win, 5-3 over the Rangers. Tampa Bay went into overtime in each of its previous six games, but Tyler Johnson's goal made it 5-1 late in the second period before the Lightning coasted the rest of the way.
 
     Tampa Bay has won eight of its last nine and leads the league with 47 victories and 98 points.
 
     The Bruins earned their fifth straight win as Brad Marchand scored with 22 seconds left in regulation to lead a 3-2 against the Flyers. Riley Nash and Brian Gionta also scored for Boston, while Zdeno Chara and David Pastrnak each had two assists.
 
     Elsewhere on NHL ice:
 
     - The Predators have the first double-digit winning streak in team history after Austin Watson provided a short-handed tally and Viktor Arvidsson added a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Ducks. Pekka Rinne made 31 saves and improved to 18-1-1. Nashville kept its six-point lead over Winnipeg in the Central Division.
 
     - Patrik Laine has nine goals in his last four games after scoring two more in the Jets' 3-2 triumph over the Devils. Laine ran his point streak to 10 games and Connor Hellebuyck stopped 35 shots as Winnipeg won for the ninth time in 11 games.
 
     - The Golden Knights rolled to a 4-0 win at Detroit as Marc-Andre Fleury turned back 28 shots in his third shutout of the season and 47th of his career. Cody Eakin and Alex Tuch each scored twice as Vegas won for the second time in six games to move 10 points ahead in the Pacific Division.
 
     - The Sharks are back in second place in the Pacific after Martin Jones recorded his fourth shutout of the season in a 2-0 triumph over the Blues. Jake Allen also had a shutout until Mikkel Boedker furnished San Jose's first power-play goal in a month, scoring with 7:48 remaining.
 
     - Jeff Carter scored once and assisted on the tiebreaking goal by Trevor Lewis as the Kings topped the Capitals, 3-1. Kyle Clifford also scored and Jonathan Quick stopped 25 shots in helping Los Angeles keep Washington one point behind the first-place Penguins in the Metropolitan Division.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans plan to release running back DeMarco Murray. General manager Jon Robinson said in a statement Thursday that Murray "was a pro in every facet and we wish him and his family the best moving forward."
 
     Murray ran for an AFC-leading 1,287 yards and nine touchdowns to make the Pro Bowl in 2016, his first year with the Titans. But he ran for only 659 yards and six touchdowns last season, suffering a knee injury that caused him to miss Tennessee's last three games.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The 49ers have signed wide receiver Marquise Goodwin to a three-year, $20.3 million contract extension that includes $10 million guaranteed. The 27-year-old Goodwin set career highs last season with 56 catches for 962 yards and scored two touchdowns.
 
     - A person familiar with the situation says Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry has signed his $16 million franchise tag, easing the path to a potential trade. The Dolphins have been shopping Landry, and the procedural move allows them to trade him as early as next Wednesday, when the NFL's new year begins.
 
     - The Bengals signed defensive tackle Chris Baker to a one-year deal. Baker played with Tampa Bay last season after spending six seasons with Washington and one each with Miami and Denver.
 
     - The NFL is investigating whether questions asked to LSU running back Derrius Guice at the combine were inappropriate. Guice, projected as one of the top running backs in this draft, told Sirius XM Radio that one team asked if he was gay and another club asked if his mother "sells herself." The NFL released a statement saying that sort of questioning is "completely inappropriate and wholly contrary to league workplace policies."
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Pittsburgh men's basketball coach Kevin Stallings has been dismissed following the worst season in program history. Stallings was let go two days after the Panthers completed an 8-24 season with a loss in the first round of the ACC tournament. Pitt lost all 19 of its conference games this year and went 24-41 in two seasons under Stallings.
 
     In other men's basketball news:
 
     - G.G. Smith has resigned as head men's basketball coach at Maryland's Loyola University after a rocky five-year run. The Greyhounds went 56-98 under his guidance, never finishing above .500. Loyola was 9-22 this season, including 1-16 on the road.
 
     - Reggie Theus is out as men's basketball coach and Brandon Martin has been let go as athletic director at Cal State Northridge. No reason was given for the decision, but campus police are investigating an alleged physical confrontation between the men. University President Dianne Harrison says in a statement that the school is "parting ways" with both men.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) -  New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge says he is "right on track" to be ready for opening day, after having arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder in November. He says the shoulder has been feeling good after a bit of soreness early in spring training.
 
     Judge set a major league rookie record with 52 home runs last season and batted .284 with 114 RBIs and league highs of 127 walks and 128 runs scored. He was the unanimous choice as AL Rookie of the Year and finished second to Houston's Jose Altuve in the AL MVP voting.
 
     In other baseball news:
 
     - The Kansas City Royals have picked up some pitching help by working out a minor league contract with Ricky Nolasco, one day after Jesse Hahn was placed on the 60-day disabled list. Nolasco spent the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, where he went 6-15 with a 4.92 ERA a year ago. The 35-year-old right-hander is 114-118 with a 4.56 ERA across 12 seasons with the Angels, Dodgers, Marlins and Twins.
 
     - The Rays have released pitcher Dustin McGowan from his minor league contract. The 35-year-old right-hander did not allow a hit during three one-inning outings in exhibition games after going 8-2 with a 4.75 ERA in 63 appearances for the Marlins last season.
