CHANGING CENTRAL

Pacers face new challenges in Central Division

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana has a new theme this season. Win the Central Division title and they'll probably have the inside track to the NBA Finals.

It won't be as easy for the two-time defending division champs the third time around.

The additions of LeBron James, Pau Gasol, Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins have turned the often overlooked Central Division into the central focus in the East. If Derrick Rose is healthy after missing most of the last two seasons with knee injuries, the Central could have the conference's three best teams.

Pacers players Paul George and Chris Copeland say they're ready up to the challenge.

But they also know that Indiana must keep improving to keep up with their rivals.

NCAA-FINANCIALS

Emmert paid $1.7 million as NCAA revenues increase

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - NCAA President Mark Emmert received $1.707 million in compensation in 2012-13, a year in which the Indianapolis-based governing body turned a $32 million profit.

The figures come from the NCAA's latest tax returns, which were released Monday.

Jim Isch, the NCAA's chief operating officer, and top legal counsel Donald Remy also topped the $500,000 mark. Isch received $1.013 million in total compensation. Remy, who is listed as an executive vice president, was third at $619,663.

During that fiscal year, the NCAA generated $874 million in revenue - a 4 percentage-point increase over 2011-12 - and had $842 million in expenses, a 6.4 percentage-point increase over the previous fiscal year.

The tax documents also show a record $546 million was distributed to member schools in 2012-13.

BLACKHAWKS-DINEEN

Kevin Dineen hired as Blackhawks assistant

CHICAGO (AP) - Kevin Dineen, who coached Canada's women's hockey team to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, has returned to the NHL as an assistant with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dineen was head coach of the Florida Panthers for two-plus seasons before being fired last fall.

In addition to winning gold in Sochi, the 50-year-old led Canada's under-18 men's team to a bronze medal at the world championship in Finland in April.

Dineen was teammates with Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville from 1984 to 1990 when they played for the Hartford Whalers.

Dineen replaces Jamie Kompon, who became general manager and coach of the WHL's Portland Winterhawks, filling the void left by Mike Johnston when he took the head job in Pittsburgh.

US Roster

US chooses 19 players for men's basketball roster

(AP) - Derrick Rose and four returnees from the 2012 Olympic men's basketball champions are among the 19 players selected for this summer's U.S. national team roster.

Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, James Harden and Anthony Davis were the four holdovers announced Monday, along with new additions DeMar DeRozan of Toronto and Chandler Parsons, who is leaving Houston for Dallas.

Players will report to training camp in Las Vegas this month, with the roster cut to 12 for the World Cup of Basketball in Spain.

Rose is trying to make the team after his NBA season was cut short by another knee operation.

The rest of the roster: Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving, Blake Griffin, Paul George, Damian Lillard, Gordon Hayward, DeMarcus Cousins, Bradley Beal, Andre Drummond, Kenneth Faried and Kyle Korver.
