GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Minor league outfielder Steve Selsky doubled in two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the Cincinnati Reds, who bounced back from blowing a 3-run lead and rallied to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Monday.

Indians minor league pitcher Tyler Guuilmet gave up singles to Argenis Diaz and Ramon Santiago, who is bidding for a bench role for the Reds.

Selsky then drove in the tying and winning runs. Tyler Holt was injured trying to field the ball in the left-field corner.

All season there has been a buzz around women's basketball about UConn and Notre Dame.

Now the stage is set for the former Big East rivals to meet in an historic national championship game.

The teams enter the NCAA tournament unbeaten — only the second time that's ever happened. They are on a collision course to meet in the national championship game. If they do both get to Nashville, the Irish will be all that stands between Geno Auriemma and a record ninth NCAA championship, breaking a tie with Tennessee.

DIVISION III

COLUMBUS— Seldom is a girls team as quick as Columbus Africentric also so careful with the basketball.

The Nubians paired a lethal trapping defense with the ability to hold onto the ball for good shots to beat Versailles, 49-37, on Saturday night in the Division III state championship game.

“We practice a lot of just holding onto the basketball for two minutes,” said Africentric coach Will McKinney. “A lot of teams don’t realize what a weapon that can be when you have the ability to keep the ball away from the other team for two minutes. If you can do that in a game, whatever kind of lead you have you can kind of expand on it.”
