BOSTON (AP) — The St. Louis Blues have injuries ahead of Game 2. They’ll be without injured forward Robert Thomas in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins Wednesday night. Coach Craig Berube (buh-ROO'-bee) says Thomas has been banged-up and his absence is not related to the open-ice hit he took from Torey Krug in a Game 1 loss Monday. Blues defenseman Vince Dunn will miss his fifth consecutive game after taking a puck to the face on shot from San Jose's Brenden Dillon in the Western Conference final.

Over the past few days, he has been taking shots and handling light contact, but he has not yet returned to full practice.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The NCAA says Division II and Division III schools will evaluate the new rule that allows college basketball players to sign with agents but maintain college eligibility while declaring for the NBA draft. The rule currently only applies to Division I players. Confusion over the rule has led to uncertainty for Glenville State's Phil Bledsoe, a Division II player who signed with an agent but withdrew from the draft ahead of Wednesday night's deadline to withdraw and preserve college eligibility.
JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Caster Semenya has appealed the Court of Arbitration for Sport's decision to uphold testosterone regulations for some female athletes in track and field. The two-time Olympic 800-meter champion's lawyers say she has lodged an appeal with the Swiss Federal Tribunal, Switzerland's supreme court. Under the IAAF's new rules, upheld by the Switzerland-based CAS this month, Semenya is not allowed to run in international races from 400 meters to one mile unless she medically lowers her natural testosterone levels.
