National Sports News

Last Update on January 31, 2015 17:57 GMT

AUSTRALIAN OPEN

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Serena Williams is the Australian Open women's champion for the sixth time.

Playing with a hacking cough, Williams defeated Maria Sharapova 6-3, 7-6 (5) for her 19th Grand Slam title. The 33-year-old Williams also became the oldest winner of the Australian women's title in the Open era. And she moved into outright second place on the list of major winners in the Open era, behind only Steffi Graf's 22.

Williams now has won 16 in a row and is 17-2 in career matches against No. 2 Sharapova, who hasn't won a head-to-head meeting since 2004.

T25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP)-- Fourth-ranked Duke is 17-0 outside the Atlantic Coast Conference and 4-3 in it. The Blue Devils could fall to .500 in ACC play unless they pull off something that no team in college basketball has been able to do: beat Virginia.

The 19-0 Cavaliers have passed every test so far. Last time out, the Cavaliers barely got past Virginia Tech 50-47 last Sunday. But the Blue Devils will provide a sharp upgrade in talent over the Hokies.

Duke seemingly has some internal issues after the dismissal of junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon (SOO'-lah-mahn) from the team last Thursday. Sulaimon was averaging 7.5 points, 2 rebounds and 1.8 assists this year, coming off the bench in every game.

In other AP Top-25 today:

Top-ranked Kentucky, fresh off its 20th victory, 69-53 over Missouri Thursday night, hosts Alabama this evening as Coach John Calipari's club continues its quest for a perfect season.

Third-ranked Gonzaga (gahn-ZAH'-guh) is coming off a 64-46 victory over Portland Thursday night. The 'Zags go outside the West Coast Conference for tonight's game against Memphis. The 'Zags are trying for their 38th straight home win.

Fifth-ranked Wisconsin is the highest ranked school in action this afternoon as the 18-2 Badgers are playing at Iowa. The Badgers already have trounced the Hawkeyes 82-50 last week and have won three in a row.

Seventh-ranked Villanova, also 18-2, also is on the road this afternoon for a game in Chicago with DePaul.

Eighth-ranked Notre Dame, which figures to move up the rankings next week after beating Duke Wednesday night, is trying to avoid a letdown as the Irish are in Pittsburgh facing the Panthers.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have the second half of a back-to-back scheduling challenge tonight. But the way the Hawks are playing, it might not matter. Atlanta, which won its 18th straight last night with a 105-99 victory over Portland, takes on lowly Philadelphia tonight as the Hawks try to keep their franchise-record winning streak growing.

That's one of 11 games on the NBA schedule tonight. Elsewhere, Dallas is at Orlando, Washington hosts Toronto, Indiana hosts Sacramento, Houston is at Detroit, Memphis is home to Oklahoma City, red-hot Cleveland is at Minnesota after beating Sacramento 101-90 last night for the Cavaliers' ninth straight victory, Portland is at Milwaukee, Denver hosts Charlotte, the L.A. Clippers are at San Antonio and the Golden State Warriors have the second half of a back-to-back situation by hosting Phoenix.

NHL-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- There are three matinees are dotting the 11-game NHL slate. First up, the Washington Capitals invade the Bell Centre to take on the Canadiens. The Caps are coming off a 4-0 shutout of Pittsburgh Wednesday night in which Braden Holtby recorded his fifth shutout of the season with 27 saves. Alex Ovechkin moved to the top of the NHL scoring parade with two goals.

Also this afternoon, the surprising New York Islanders are in Detroit to face the Red Wings. The Isles are coming off their 5-2 loss to Boston Thursday night.

The other day game has Arizona at Ottawa to play the Senators.

Elsewhere in the NHL tonight, Dallas is at Winnipeg, Boston hosts the L.A. Kings, New Jersey is home to Florida, Toronto is at Philadelphia, the Rangers are home against Carolina, Tampa Bay hosts Carolina, Edmonton is at Calgary and San Jose is home to Chicago.
