Aroldis Chapman on why he included the no-trade provision to California: "I just didn't want to go that far from my family. I did have the opportunity to stay here near my house (in Florida, playing with the Miami Marlins) but no, I leaned more towards (going to) New York."

ESPN Stats and Information  

Since Aroldis Chapman's first season in 2010, he has 2,241 pitches at 100 MPH or faster, more than the next 7 pitchers on the list of MLB leaders, COMBINED. This past season Chapman was throwing harder than ever. He threw 111 pitches that reached 103 MPH, almost 4 times as many as any other pitcher in a season in the last five years - and that was him, too.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Aroldis Chapman just told me he was between the Miami Marlins and the New York Yankees in the end, decided to go to the Yankees. Chapman: "I love the (Yankees) organization. They welcomed me with open arms and that's why I decided to go back, I was hoping I had a chance to go back and it happened." "Every player dreams of being a Yankee, and if they don't it's because they never got the chance."

Potential No. 1 pick Markelle Fultz had Washington's only real highlights in the first half against Gonzaga, a pretty left-handed spin and finish in transition and a pro-move step back jumper ... but finished 3 of 14 from the field and went into the locker room trailing 47-22. UW is rough enough when Fultz plays well (and he usually has); when he's off, they're doomed.

Here's what Carmelo Anthony said when asked about Phil Jackson's assertion that he has a tendency to hold the ball too much: "I just don't even want to talk about that, what he's talking about exactly. I want to stay away from that at this point. My focus is my teammates and winning. We've been playing great basketball and that's the only thing I'm focused on. Whatever Phil said he said it. I have nothing to say about that."

Nevada is hiring Arizona State wide receivers coach Jay Norvell as its coach, sources tell ESPN. Norvell interviewed earlier Wednesday. FootballScoop.com first reported the hiring. Norvell has been an offensive coordinator at Nebraska, UCLA, Oklahoma and Texas, but this is his first head-coaching job.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Carmelo Anthony was pretty annoyed by questions about Phil Jackson saying he holds on to the ball too much. He didn't want to answer the questions. He said he didn't know what Phil said, but I'm guessing he did. "Whatever Phil said, he said. I have nothing to say about that."
