The 76ers traded center Marreese Speights to the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday in exchange for a pair of second-round draft choices. The pick from the Grizzlies comes in the 2012 draft. The third team involved, the New Orleans Hornets, whom the Sixers play Wednesday night, will send a second-round pick in 2013. The Sixers will also get a $2.72 million trade exception - the equivalent to Speights' 2011-12 salary. "We wish Marreese all the best as he stars a new chapter in his career with Memphis," Sixers president of basketball operations Rod Thorn said.

Xavier Henry scored 12 points, including several free throws down the stretch, to help top-ranked Kansas escape with a 59-54 win at No. 24 Texas A & M last night. It's the 11th consecutive victory for Kansas (25-1, 11-0 Big 12) and breaks a 16-game home winning streak for Texas A & M (18-7, 7-4). Kansas trailed for much of the second half and was behind by four before going on a 7-2 run, capped by a free throw by Henry, to take a 55-54 lead with 3 1/2 minutes remaining. The Jayhawks pushed the lead to 57-54 moments later when Bryan Davis was called for goaltending on a shot by Cole Aldrich.

Wayne Ellington and Ty Lawson put off a jump to the NBA last season so they could improve their draft standing and make another run at a national championship. Now with that title in hand, the juniors figure it's the perfect time to give pro ball another try. They announced yesterday that they would enter the draft again, ending their college careers a few weeks after leading North Carolina to its fifth NCAA championship. Both players declared last year so they could work out at the predraft camp and for teams before deciding to return to school, a "testing-the-waters" option they can use only once.

After collecting almost every national player of the year honor, Ohio State's Evan Turner is skipping his senior season to test himself in the NBA. The 6-7 point guard is expected to be a top-three pick in the June 24 draft. He averaged 20.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and six assists last season. Among other players to declare for the draft yesterday were five from Kentucky including Freshmen John Wall, a guard, and DeMarcus Cousins, a forward, who are expected to be among the first players selected.

THE EARLY candidate for most interesting nugget from our boys down in Augusta was that Jack Nicklaus, for the longest time, never owned any of the green jackets he earned by winning six Masters. The club never seemed to have a 43 regular on hand, but in 1965 they gave him the one owned by Thomas Dewey, who is best known for the unfortunate 1948 Chicago Daily Tribune headline "Dewey defeats Truman. " The idea that Nicklaus has a closet full of green jackets also is a misperception.

A few days ago, La Salle basketball coach John Giannini watched video of No. 1-ranked Kansas and said he saw no weaknesses. His opinion did not change much after KU's 90-65 victory over the Explorers yesterday at the Sprint Center. "I think they're really good," Giannini said. "We played two Final Four teams last year. We've played Villanova already this year. "I think they're the best team we've played in a long time. " Though the Explorers hung around for a half, KU's depth and athleticism were too much to overcome.

A month into the NBA's free-agency period, the 76ers say they will start making moves. They won't say which players they are targeting. "We have needs all around," Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said. "We are going to look for guys who can be a part of our future and have a chance, some guys who can grow with our team. " The Sixers chose to focus on evaluating talent in the Orlando and Las Vegas summer leagues before turning their attention to free agency. They need a veteran point guard who can back up and mentor first-round pick Michael Carter-Williams.

NEW ORLEANS - The question has been dressed in different ways, asked by countless people in every situation imaginable: Is this the best coaching job of Kansas coach Bill Self's career? The second-seeded Jayhawks have played a who's who of major-college basketball: Duke and Kentucky, Missouri and Baylor. In the regular season they beat Ohio State, the team they'll play in the Final Four on Saturday night, and won their record eighth straight Big 12 title. And they've done it with an all-American forward (Thomas Robinson)

NEW ORLEANS - Coach Doug Collins said early in 76ers training camp that not getting the most out of Marreese Speights last season was probably his biggest disappointment from the 2010-11 season. Now that Speights is gone - moved Wednesday in a three-team trade that fetched the Sixers second-round picks from the Memphis Grizzlies (2012) and the New Orleans Hornets (2013) - Collins has turned his attention to getting the most out of the players remaining on the roster. The Speights trade, in which the Grizzlies also acquired Xavier Henry from New Orleans, gives Collins a chance to figure out exactly where, say, Tony Battie fits in. "We are hoping that maybe Tony can get his legs up and maybe get some of the minutes that might have gone to Mo," Collins said.

NEW ORLEANS - It certainly wasn't the blockbuster trade 76ers fans may be longing for, but it was a significant move, nonetheless. Fourth-year forward Marreese Speights, drafted with the 16th overall pick out of Florida in 2008, was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies as part of a three-team deal that also involved the New Orleans Hornets. The Sixers will receive the Hornets' second-round pick in 2013 and a protected second-rounder from the Grizzlies in 2012. The only way the Sixers will not get the Memphis pick is if the Grizzlies finish in one of the top four draft spots.

Evan Turner drained a 37-footer at the buzzer to give No. 5 Ohio State a 69-68 win over Michigan yesterday in the Big Ten tournament quarterfinals in Indianapolis, Ind. Turner took the inbounds pass, dribbled upcourt and pulled up barely past half-court. The Big Ten player of the year left his arm in the air after the release, confident the long shot would fall. His attempt was so close to the buzzer that the play was reviewed. When officials signaled the shot was good, the red-clad section of the crowd erupted.

Prep Charter graduate Markieff Morris added 10 points and nine rebounds.
