Pitcher John Lamb, who early in camp emerged as one of the Royals reasons for optimism, responded with a distressing effort in a 7-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He allowed four runs and could not finish the first inning. His pacing was scrambled and his pitches ineffective. One scout clocked his velocity at 86-89 mph.
On Saturday, Royals manager Ned Yost bestowed an honor on James Shields that had long been expected, choosing Shields to take the ball on March 31 in Detroit. The other choices were far more interesting. Yost picked Jason Vargas as his No. 2 starter. He tabbed Jeremy Guthrie for the home opener on April 4.
Seattle newcomer Chad Barrett scored a goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time Saturday to give the Sounders a 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City in both teams’ season opener.

The Chiefs have several unrestricted free agents set to hit the market on Tuesday. Here are Chiefs general manager John Dorsey’s thoughts on a few of them.
KU's Andrew Wiggins scored 41 points and had eight rebounds and five steals to help lead a comeback from 25 points down in the second half, but the No. 8 Jayhawks fell short in a 92-86 loss to West Virgina in Morgantown.
Kansas coach Bill Self said freshman center Joel Embiid’s aching back will be evaluated by specialists on Sunday. Embiid, who has missed the last two games because of a lower-back strain, didn’t travel with the team to West Virginia.

Even from more than 700 miles away, the sound of Missouris NCAA Tournament bubble bursting could be heard loud and clear Saturday after a sluggish 72-45 loss at Tennessee.

Everything appeared to be going Kansas State's way at halftime against Baylor, when they led 33-25, but the game spiraled away from there, ending the Wildcats' 15-game home winning streak on senior day.
Kansas State honored its four seniors Will Spradling, Shane Southwell, Omari Lawrence and walk-on Ryan Schultz in a pregame ceremony and throughout the game with video tributes. They produced ovation after ovation. But not on the court. All four seniors struggled, combing for 11 points.
