College basketball • Ed Rush resigned Thursday as the Pac-12 Conference's basketball coordinator of officials following comments during internal meetings before the league tournament that appeared to target Arizona coach Sean Miller.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said that Rush made an "inappropriate joke" before the Pac-12 tournament semifinals offering a group of officials $5,000 for a trip to Cancun if they called a technical foul on Miller, but that every official interviewed confirmed "nobody thought they were getting a reward."

• Jim Larranaga, who led Miami to the Atlantic Coast Conference regular season and tournament titles and a No. 2 ranking, was selected The Associated Press' coach of the year.

• Trey Burke, the sophomore point guard who led Michigan to the Final Four, was selected The Associated Press' player of the year.

Burke was the leader of a team that at times had four freshmen on the court with him but he still managed to average 19.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists.
