NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators have acquired goaltender Connor Ingram from the Tampa Bay Lightning for their seventh-round pick in the 2021 NHL draft.

UNDATED (AP) — Murray State’s Ja Morant, Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland and North Carolina’s Coby White headline the list of top point guards in the NBA draft. Morant dominated the mid-major ranks last season as a sophomore, while White blossomed into a one-and-done prospect while leading the Tar Heels. Garland offers more uncertainty after appearing in just five college games due to injury. Other names to watch in Thursday’s draft include Purdue’s Carsen Edwards and Virginia’s Ty Jerome.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Arkansas has tried to move on from the foul ball that dropped and cost the Razorbacks the national championship last year.

Pitcher Isaiah Campbell said it left some of his teammates with a sense of unfinished business. The CWS opens Saturday afternoon with Michigan playing Texas Tech.
