BC-AP Sports Preview Digest

Some of the sports stories The Associated Press is covering Tuesday. A full Sports Digest will be sent by about 3 p.m. All times EDT:

- PARIS - Agnieszka Radwanska is upset in the fourth round by a player ranked 102nd, and Samantha Stosur reaches the quarterfinals before rain again disrupts play at the French Open.

- Kevin Durant says it's too soon to think about free agency and whether he'll leave Oklahoma City. The playoffs could have big ramifications on which free agents stay put and which ones eye new homes.

- OAKLAND, Calif. - Stephen Curry is looking healthy again - his ankle, knee and elbow problems seemingly gone. But he stresses he's not close to done. The Warriors need four more wins to repeat as champions.

- PITTSBURGH - It took Sidney Crosby and the Penguins seven years to return to the Stanley Cup Final, a burden the two-time MVP has carried with grace amid injuries and playoff disappointments.

- PITTSBURGH - Sharks coach Peter DeBoer saw no red flags in the opening loss to the Penguins of the Stanley Cup Final. Still, there's little doubt San Jose needs to recover quickly for Game 2 on Wednesday.

- CHICAGO - Jake Arrieta (9-0, 1.72 ERA) tries to become the majors' first 10-game winner when the Cubs play the Dodgers and go for their seventh straight victory. Game starts 8:05 p.m.

- ORLANDO, Fla. - The NFL is moving the Pro Bowl from Honolulu to Orlando this season, the AP is told. Orlando beat out Honolulu, Houston and Sydney for the right to host the game.

- PHILADELPHIA - Rick MacLeish, who starred for the Broad Street Bullies teams of the Philadelphia Flyers that won the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975, has died. He was 66.

- DESTIN, Fla. - The Southeastern Conference's annual meetings begin. Up for discussion: NCAA violations, legal issues and possible division realignment in football.

- One weekend, two NCAA championships. North Carolina becomes only the second school to sweep the men's and women's lacrosse titles in the same season.

- PARIS - Hooliganism is making a comeback, and the timing could be bad with four high-risk matches in the first week of the European Championship in a country where police already are under great strain.

- CIUDAD VICTORIA, Mexico - Kidnapped soccer player Alan Pulido overpowered a captor, freed himself and then called police. But Pulido had another fear: Police officers sent to his rescue might shoot him.
