compiled from staff and wire reports

Joey Logano with some fast times in practice Friday, has captured the first pole of his career at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Kurt Busch, winner of the last NASCAR race March 7 in Atlanta, qualified second with a lap at 123.857 in his Dodge. Busch credits his fast start in 2010 to his new crew chief Steve Addington, who helped lead his brother, Kyle Busch to a pair of wins at Bristol last year. Kurt Busch is a five-time winner at Bristol, but hasn’t been to Victory Lane at the Tennessee track since 2006.

Dave Blaney, who qualified fourth at Bristol in August 2009, has moved up to third this year at 123.849.

Says Logano, “I’ve always been fast here and I’ve done everything but have an uneventful race.”

Zydrunas Ilgauskas is eager to return to the Cavs (nba)

Center Zydrunas Ilgauskas was back in the Cleveland area on Friday, three days before he is eligible to re-sign with the Cavaliers. He was working out in a suburban gym but gave no details of his future to the media.

Cleveland traded Ilgauskas to Washington at the NBA trade deadline as part of a three-team deal that brought Antawn Jamison and Sebastian Telfair to Cleveland. His contract was bought out by the Wizards, making him a free agent.

His agent, Herb Rudoy says that he and Zydrunas will be meeting with Cleveland general manager Danny Ferry this coming week about the 7’3 veteran returning to the only team he has played for, the Cavaliers.

LeBron James sets another record (nba)

LeBron James put on a show for the Chicago fans in the United Center on Friday night. James became the youngest player to¬† score 15,000 career points, breaking Kobe Bryant’s record by more than two years and the Cavaliers pulled away late to beat the Bulls 92-85 for their 12th win in 13 games.

LeBron James reached the milestone at 25 years, 79 days, and accomplished it in his 540th game. Kobe Bryant was 27 years, 136 days and played in his 657th game for the Los Angeles Lakers.

James said, “breaking that record is humbling. It’s a result of all the hard work and time I spend improving my game.”

LeBron scored 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, giving him 15,026 in his career and he pulled down 11 rebounds. He put the Bulls away singlehandedly by scoring seven in a row late in the game as Cleveland upped its lead to 10.

Mo Williams scored 18 points for Cleveland, who continues to play well without injured center Shaquille O’Neal. They are an outstanding 10-1 since O’Neal has been out suffering from a thumb injury.

The Bulls tried to stay close in the game without their three best players who are injured: Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Joakim Noah. Rookies Taj Gibson with 20 points, 13 rebounds and James Johnson with 16 points. The Bulls are on a 10-game losing streak which matches their longest such streak since November 2001.

Evan Turner proved that he is human and can have an “off” night. The Buckeyes have proven all season that they are not a one-man team and can win games without Turner scoring 20 or 30 points and if he’s injured.

Ohio State jumped on the backs of Jon Diebler and William Buford and the defensive prowess of Dallas Lauderdale, for a 68-51 victory over pesky and persistent California-Santa Barbara in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night.

Diebler scored 23 points and Lauderdale blocked a career-high eight shots and grabbed 12 rebounds for the #2 seeded Buckeyes who up their record to 28-7.

Diebler’s play was very impressive due in part that spent the whole week fighting off symtoms of the flu.

Turner scored only nine points on 2-of 13 shooting from the floor. He did pull down 10 rebounds. He seemed to have trouble playing against the Gauchos matchup zone defense.

The Buckeyes advanced to play Sunday against the number 10 seed Georgia Tech, who upset seventh-seeded Oklahoma State 64-59 on Friday.

Orlando Johnson scored 20 points for the number 15 seed UC Santa Barbara, who end the season at 20-10.

Penn’s Free Throws in Overtime End Reynoldsburg’s Championship Run

Canton McKinley High School (CMHS)

Columbus, Ohio.–Sydnee Penn’s 4 free throws in the last 1:42 of overtime gave Canton McKinley a 42-39 victory in the Division I semi-final over Reynoldsburg, ending the Raiders’ run for the girls championship.

Penn stole the ball at midcourt with 1:44 to go, and coverted 2 free throws 2 seconds later to break the eighth and last tie of the game. After another Raider turnover with 1:21 left, the senior guard added 2 more free throws with :29 left to make the score 42-38 and effectively put the low-scoring game out of reach. Ironically, the Raiders had gotten a grip on their turnover troubles after halftime, winning the turnover battle 8-4 in the 2nd half after turning it over 9 times in the first half.

Amazingly, the 36-36 score at the end of regulation represented the lowest scoring output of the year for each team. The Lady Pups of McKinley entered the game outscoring their opponents by an average of 68-38.

It was the Raiders’ first State appearance, and it showed right out of the box. Coach Jack Purtell¬†called a timeout in the first 1:13 of the game as the Pups broke to a 7-0 lead, and the Raiders responded with an 11-3 run to take the lead. The Raiders settled down the rest of the first half, apart from their 9 turnovers, and trailed 22-20 at intermission.

McKinley’s largest 2nd half lead was only 5, and the Raiders hung in despite not making it to the free throw line in the 2nd half. Aryelle Goodson’s layup for Reynoldsburg with 1:17 in regulation tied the score at 36, and the Pups held the ball for the last shot. Surya Gaffney of McKinley appeared headed for an easy basket with seconds left, but the Raiders broke up the play to force overtime.

Guard Ameryst Alston–already heavily recruited as a sophomore–played the full 36 minutes and led the Pups with 16 points,
