MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The Latest on Thursday at the Australian Open (all times local):

WASHINGTON (AP) — Top-ranked Villanova led by as many as 44 points — 44! — and gave Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing a rude welcome back to the schools' rivalry, handing the Hoyas their worst loss in more than 40 years, 88-56 on Wednesday night.

Trevor Ariza said nothing happened. The NBA strongly disagreed. Ariza and Gerald Green will both be suspended for Houston's next two games, with the NBA coming down hard on both players Wednesday for what the league said was their "hostile, verbal altercation" in the Los Angeles Clippers' locker room earlier this week.

Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens will become the new chairman of the College Football Playoff selection committee starting next season, and three new Power Five ADs will join the 13-member panel.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Maria Sharapova was set to take on Anastasija Sevastova at the start of play Thursday on an expected day of scorching temperatures at the Australian Open.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The path for Stefon Diggs to last-play touchdown fame and sudden Minnesota savior didn't start with such brilliance.

When Dr. Brian Hainline learned about the apparent suicide of another college athlete, it hit hard. Again. No, he didn't know Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski.

HOUSTON (AP) — Rockets guard James Harden returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since he was injured Dec. 31 against the Los Angeles Lakers.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jay Bruce was surprised by the free-agent market. "The way the offseason kind of went and the slowness of it kind of maybe changed my outlook on it a little bit," he said Wednesday at a Citi Field news conference.

NEW YORK (AP) — Television viewership for the NFL's divisional round playoff games was down 16 percent compared to last year, offering ammunition to critics of the football league, but there are a couple of compelling explanations.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Nick Foles threw a deep pass into the wind on the first play from scrimmage against the Falcons, LeGarrette Blount scored the only touchdown on fourth down and wide receiver Nelson Agholor ran 21 yards on a new play.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Yannick Ngakoue has a knack for the strip-sack, an innate ability to knock balls out of the hands of quarterbacks.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — With sweat streaking down his face and into his bushy beard, LeBron James was not in a playful mood following practice.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots say quarterback Tom Brady did not attend a scheduled AFC championship news conference Wednesday because he was meeting with the team medical staff for a right hand injury.

North Korea suddenly making nice for the duration of next month's Olympic Games in South Korea, putting seven decades of enmity on hold for 16 days with its offers to send athletes and entertainers across their heavily militarized border, won't fundamentally change what happens next.

CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs bolstered their revamped bullpen on Wednesday, bringing back Brian Duensing with a $7 million, two-year contract.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The rival Koreas agreed Wednesday to form their first unified Olympic team and have their athletes parade together for the first time in 11 years during the opening ceremony of next month's Winter Olympics in South Korea, officials said.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The Latest on talks between North and South Korea (all times local): 4:45 a.m. The White House says it hopes for a "small taste of freedom" for the North Korean athletes participating on a joint Olympic team with South Korea.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis is the northernmost city to host a Super Bowl. Tourism officials are making the most of that as they prepare to welcome visitors to the "Bold North."

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Marta Kostyuk was such a perfectionist when she started playing tennis as a child, she'd blow up in anger if she missed even a single ball.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — It was quite a predicament for Grigor Dimitrov, still basking in his triumph at the ATP Finals as he entered his second-round match at the Australian Open against a young American who had never won a tour-level match before qualifying for the first major of the season.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Mackenzie McDonald knew he was ready to turn pro after his junior year at UCLA. He had just won the NCAA singles and doubles titles and believed he was ready to take the next step.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski has died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The Latest on Wednesday at the Australian Open (all times local): 11:55 p.m. Third-seeded Grigor Dimitrov has scraped into the third round of the Australian Open — just — with a tough five-set win over 186th-ranked qualifier Mackenzie McDonald, a former U.S collegiate champion from Los Angeles.
