Defending and seven-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic plays Japanese wild-card entry Tatsuma Ito. Serena Williams takes another step to what she hopes will be her record 24th Grand Slam singles title when she plays Tamara Zidansek. No. 1-ranked Ash Barty will continue her quest for a second major title when she plays Polona Hercog. NBA-SCHEDULE Clippers visit Dallas DALLAS (AP) --- In tonight's only NBA contest, the Los Angeles Clippers are in Dallas to play the Mavericks. The Clippers have won their last three games, while Dallas is on a four-game winning streak. NBA-TRAIL BLAZERS-KINGS TRADE Trail Blazers get veteran forward PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) --- The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired veteran forward Trevor Ariza from the Sacramento Kings. Portland also gets Wenyen Gabriel and Caleb Swanigan from the Kings in exchange for Kent Bazemore, Anthony Tolliver and two second-round draft picks. Ariza, a 15-year NBA veteran who was on the Lakers' 2009 NBA championship team, has averaged 6.0 points and 4.6 rebounds with the Kings this season. He has also played with New York, Orlando, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix over his career, averaging 10.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 1,043 games. COLLEGE BASKETBALL Kansas meets Kansas State UNDATED (AP) --- Third-ranked Kansas meets Kansas State, while number-four San Diego State takes on Wyoming in tonight's college basketball action involving ranked teams. Number-eight Duke plays Miami, and Villanova -- ranked ninth -- meets number-13 Butler. Other ranked teams in action include number-15 Kentucky, playing Georgia, and 17th-ranked Maryland, at Northwestern. Number-18 Texas Tech is at TCU. And Illinois, ranked 21st, is at Purdue. NHL-SCHEDULE Hot teams meet in Chicago UNDATED (AP) --- Either the Florida Panthers or the Chicago Blackhawks will see a five-game winning streak come to an end tonight. The two hot teams meet in Chicago, each hoping to carry their momentum into an extended break. Tonight's game is a homecoming for Panthers coach Joel Quenneville, who coached the Blackhawks to three Stanley Cup championships and nine playoff appearances in 10-plus years before being fired when the team got off to a lackluster start last season. He was hired by the Panthers in April. In other NHL action, the Pittsburgh Penguins -- winners of six of their last seven -- are in Philadelphia. New York's Rangers and Islanders meet at Madison Square Garden. The Winnipeg Jets skate at Carolina. And the Boston Bruins host Vegas. MLB-RED SOX-PEDROIA Pedroia has ?significant setback' BOSTON (AP) --- The Red Sox say second baseman Dustin Pedroia has suffered a significant setback while rehabbing his left knee injury. It is the latest blow to the four-time All-Star's attempt to return to the field. It has left his status for spring training uncertain. The 2008 American League MVP has been on the mend since Baltimore's Manny Machado slid into his surgically repaired knee at second base on April 21, 2017. Pedroia has had multiple surgeries on the knee since then and has been limited to just nine games over the past two seasons. LOS ANGELES-BASEBALL-CHEATING Los Angeles council wants Astros and Red Sox to lose their titles LOS ANGELES (AP) --- The Los Angeles City Council wants Major League Baseball to strip the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox of their World Series titles and award the trophies to the Dodgers. The resolution was introduced after it was revealed that the Astros used a system by then-coach Alex Cora in 2017 to tip off batters on what pitch was to be thrown. The Red Sox are under investigation for stealing signs in Cora's first season as manager in 2018, when Boston won the World Series. Council members acknowledged today's symbolic vote sends the message that cheating shouldn't be tolerated. NFL-BROWNS-BECKHAM SURGERY Beckham recovering from surgery CLEVELAND (AP) --- Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is recovering from surgery to repair a core muscle injury. Beckham played most of last season with a sports hernia. He didn't miss a game, but the three-time Pro Bowler didn't make the same kind of game-breaking plays that made him so dangerous for the New York Giants. The Browns did not provide a timeline on his return but says Beckham is expected to make a full recovery. The team also said Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry will not need hip surgery. He led the team with 83 catches for 1,174 yards last season. NFL DRAFT-EARLY ENTRANTS Tua, Young among juniors granted eligibility for NFL draft UNDATED (AP) --- Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, Ohio State defensive end Chase Young and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor are among 99 juniors granted eligibility by the NFL into the draft. The NFL on Tuesday released the official list of 120 players who gave up college eligibility to enter the draft. Most previously made their intentions public. Among that 120 are 16 players who notified the NFL they had completed college degree requirements and were therefore eligible to be selected in the April 23-25 draft in Las Vegas. The total of 120 players who left behind college eligibility to enter the draft is down from the record 132 last season. The 99 juniors granted early entry by the league is also down from 103 last year.
