ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan's Iggy Brazdeikis is staying in the NBA draft. The school announced last month that Brazdeikis, Charles Matthews and Jordan Poole were declaring for the draft. All three could have changed their minds and come back, but instead, they've all said they would indeed leave school.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Indiana enters the Big Ten Tournament as the national leader in home runs. The Hoosiers will be playing in a ballpark that surrenders few long balls. The double-elimination tournament opens Wednesday with No. 3 seed Illinois playing No. 6 Maryland. Games to follow are No. 2 Michigan against No. 7 Ohio State, No. 1 Indiana against No. 8 Iowa and No. 4 Minnesota against No. 5 Nebraska. The championship game is Sunday.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa point guard Jordan Bohannon is out indefinitely with a hip injury. It could put his senior season in jeopardy. The Hawkeyes say Bohannon suffered the injury last year and he hoped rest and rehab work would solve the problem. He will have surgery this week. Bohannon ranked third on the team with 11.6 points per game last season.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Quarterback Josh Jackson, a star at Virginia Tech two seasons ago, has transferred to Maryland with two years of eligibility remaining. Terrapins coach Michael Locksley also announced that tight end Tyler Mabry will join the Maryland football program after playing three years at Buffalo. Jackson started 13 games for the Hokies in 2017 before having his sophomore season was cut short by a leg injury.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa is paying an outside lawyer $280 per hour to investigate unspecified NCAA violations in its women's volleyball program. A letter released by Iowa shows that it hired the law firm Bond, Schoeneck & King on May 4 for "review, evaluation and counsel regarding potential NCAA rules violations." Attorney Jason Montgomery in the firm's Overland Park, Kansas, office is the primary lawyer and billing $280 per hour.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) — John Beilein has coached at every level in college but says the Cleveland Cavaliers are his dream job. The 66-year-old Beilein who turned Michigan into a perennial power during a 12-year run was introduced by the Cavaliers. Even before taking the podium, Beilein got to work with one of his new players. He peeled off his suit jacket to rebound shots for forward Larry Nance Jr. Beilein doesn't view Cleveland's situation as a rebuild but rather a renaissance.
