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."
