CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert met with former NBA star Chauncey Billups for the second straight day to discuss a front-office positon. Billups doesn't have any front-office experience, but his knowledge of the league and long-standing relationship with Gilbert make him attractive to the Cavaliers. Earlier this week, Gilbert and general manager David Griffin parted ways following three consecutive trips to the NBA Finals.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA could change its video replay rules in college hockey, giving officials more power and limiting the ability to review an offside play. The men's and women's ice hockey rules committee proposed allowing on-ice officials to review goals involving potential offside or too many men on the ice in overtime or the final 10 minutes of a game and at any time during the tournament. The proposals would need approval by the NCAA's playing rules oversight panel.
