St. John's beats No. 14 Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) JaKarr Sampson scored 16 points and D'Angelo Harrison added 15 and St. John's beat No. 14 Cincinnati 53-52 on Saturday, yet another close game between the teams.

Cashmere Wright hit two 3-pointers in an 8-0 run that pulled Cincinnati within one with 2:32 left in the game. Wright's layup with 53 seconds to play gave the Bearcats a 52-51 lead.

Harrison, coming off a career-high 36 points in a loss to Villanova this week, hit a jumper with 29 seconds left to regain the lead for St. John's.

Alex Ovechkin named to NHL's All-Decade first team for 2010-19

Alex Ovechkin once again was named to one of the NHL's All-Decade teams.

This go-around, Ovechkin was named to the first-team for the All-Decade Team spanning 2010-2019. 

During those 10 seasons, there was no one that totaled more than Ovi's 437 goals. Only two others had more than his 730 points.

Through our eyes, we saw him mature from a unique superstar to a once-in-a-generation athlete. Ovechkin won his first Stanley Cup in the decade after years of heartbreak and dominant Capitals teams that could never escape the second round. 

Now, he's a mere eight goals away from reaching 700 and further etching his name in the fabric of the sport. 

He is joined with fellow forward Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith of the Blackhawks. Sidney Crosby of the Penguins, Drew Doughty of the Kings and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Golden Knights rounded out the six-player first team.

Dayton vs. Richmond: Date, Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, How to watch

The Dayton Flyers and the Richmond Spiders are set to battle in a key Atlantic 10 matchup. 

Dayton has carried the banner for the Atlantic 10 conference this season. Wins over Georgia and Virginia Tech, paired with a neutral-site overtime loss to Kansas vaulted them quickly into the national conversation quickly. With NBA prospect Obi Toppin leading the way, it's hard to imagine a team topping them. 

In the Atlantic 10, No. 7 Dayton (17-2, 6-0) is unbeaten. Their assumed biggest test was VCU and they handled them by 14 points. 

But Richmond (15-4, 5-1) is sneaky good. Beating Wisconsin in an early-season tournament gave the Spiders a key nonconference win. If they can keep it together and avoid bad losses, the postseason may be in their future. 

The Spiders will have to do it without their leading scorer Blake Francis though. He is out for the next month or so after a sternum injury

Postseason implications are surely on the line.
