The Stars’ Alex Chiasson (12) bows his head, and Jordie Benn (24) and other Dallas players kneel on the ice after play was stopped when Rich Peverley collapsed in the first period. Peverley is expected to be OK.
DALLAS — Events last night at the American Airlines Center sent chills through the Blue Jackets and Dallas Stars, and they had nothing to do with what happened on the ice.
Aaron Craft (4) was voted second-team all-Big Ten by the media and third-team by the coaches.
Aaron Craft is the defensive player of the year in the Big Ten for the second time in three seasons, but that alone isn’t enough for coach Thad Matta as he watches the senior finish his rough-and-tumble Ohio State career.
DALLAS — The Dallas Stars traveled to St. Louis as usual last night for a game against the Blues tonight.
Starter Homer Bailey gave himself “a B-plus” for his outing, but the Cincinnati Reds fell to the Texas Rangers 8-2 yesterday in Surprise, Ariz., their eighth loss in nine games.
Ricardo Johnson thought Ohio University’s game against Kent State would be a typical night in the Convocation Center for him. He wasn’t going to play — a broken leg has kept him out of every Mid-American Conference game — but he would be front and center for a pregame meeting and get the usual case of the nerves.
Ohio’s Nick Kellogg drives to the basket against Ball State. The DeSales graduate led the Bobcats with 17 points.
ATHENS, Ohio — Ohio University didn’t exactly get a free coupon into the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference tournament, but playing Ball State last night felt like getting 50 percent off.
Anthony Bennett’s rough rookie season hit a new bump.
Chattanooga 71, Davidson 45: Alex Black scored 22 points and Chattanooga defeated Davidson (16-16) yesterday to win the Southern Conference championship and clinch a spot in the NCAA tournament.

Crew defender Waylon Francis, left, and D.C. United’s Sean Franklin vie for a ball in the air in the second half of the Crew’s 3-0 win on Saturday.
The Gregg Berhalter era could not have gotten off to a better start. Opening on the road against an also-rebuilt D.C. United, the Crew got an early goal from Jairo Arrieta and two more from Federico Higuain and suffocated the United attack in a decisive 3-0 victory.
Ohio State coach Tom Ryan said a loss to Penn State’s Zain Retherford brought Logan Stieber “to a new level of focus.”
Logan Stieber insisted that revenge wasn’t his goal entering the Big Ten wrestling championships, but it became an added part of how his tournament ended. His Ohio State teammate, Nick Heflin, wanted to win simply because it was his final chance for a Big Ten title. The senior accomplished his goal, too, and in dramatic fashion.
