ESPN.com's Andy Katz reports that Kentucky coach John Calipari denied that his program is under NCAA investigation and that he and NBA MVP LeBron James had discussed a package deal for Calipari to coach him in the NBA. When asked to give the facts as to whether he and James discussed the NBA, Calipari said: "We never talked about me coaching him,'' he said. "That never came up in our conversation.''

Garrett Wittels is three games away from history. The Florida International infielder extended his hitting streak to 55 games with a line-drive double to right-center in the sixth inning of the Golden Panthers' NCAA tournament game against Texas A&M. Wittels was hitless in his first two at-bats, flying out to right in the first and grounding to third in the third, shaking himself up on that play. On his third trip to the plate, Wittels went with a 3-0 pitch from Aggies starter Barret Loux, driving it into the gap. The Division I record is a 58-game streak by Oklahoma State's Robin Ventura in 1987.

Watch out, Peyton Manning's pinched nerve is gone and he's feeling better than he has in a long time. His neck surgery in March has alleviated symptoms that had him taking up to three treatment sessions a day, cutting into his meeting and weight room time. "I feel good out there throwing, I feel good in my lifting, I feel like everything went according to plan," he said on the opening day of the Indianapolis Colts mandatory minicamp. "I'm very relieved of that and I no longer have to get the treatment that I was having to get for the past four years."
