Basketball

Portland (Ore.) five-star power forward Terrence Jones, the No. 13 overall player in the class of 2010, will make a recruiting visit to Kansas on Sunday, according to Rivals.com. KU still has one scholarship available, and Jones would appear to be a perfect fit for the Jayhawks, who have four big men on scholarship for next season.

Jones (6-foot-8, 220 pounds) appears to be capable of playing small forward or power forward at the next level. He has taken visits to Kentucky, Oklahoma, Washington and UCLA.

SIU (28-16, 13-3) did not score a run in its 2008 trip to WSU, losing 7-0, 3-0 and 1-0.

John Cook and Joey Sindelar, who have known each other since their college days at Ohio State, shot a better-ball 10-under 62 to share the first-round lead with Mark O'Meara and Nick Price at the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf, a Champions Tour event at Savannah, Ga.

* Lee Janzen, Alex Cejka, Brian Davis, Greg Owen and Jason Bohn were tied for the lead at 7 under when second-round play in the Zurich Classic was suspended because of heavy rain at Avondale, La.

* Defending champion Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand shot a 5-under 68 for a share of the lead with Argentina's Tano Goya at 8 under in the suspended second round of the fog-disrupted Ballantine's Championship at Jeju Island, South Korea.

* Mexican golf star Lorena Ochoa said at a press conference in Mexico City that she will compete in the Tres Marias Championships next week in Morelia before retiring. The 28-year-old plans to annually play in the LPGA's Lorena Ochoa Invitational each November in Guadalajara.

The No. 1 player in women's golf confirmed on her website Tuesday she is leaving the game. She got married in December and has talked about wanting a family. She said while retirement was a difficult decision, she was "full of happiness."
