Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Scottie Wilbekin made a 3-pointer with 1.3 seconds left to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to 115-114 preseason win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night. Jahlil Okafor, the No. 3 overall pick of the draft, scored 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting in his home debut.

   CLEVELAND (AP) - An investment bank hired by Indians owner Paul Dolan has identified a potential minority partner for the franchise and may be near a deal.
   Steve Greenberg, managing director of Allen & Company, a New York-based financial boutique that has brokered sports acquisitions in the past, said Thursday the search has narrowed on a "small group." Greenberg said the hope is the deal would be finished by the end of the year.
   Greenberg said a minority owner will ease the financial burden on Dolan and help bring stability to the Indians, who finished 81-80 this season and missed the playoffs for the second straight year.
   The Dolan family has owned the Indians since 1999.

   BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Browns are still a little jumpy over an offside call late in last week's loss at San Diego.
   Cornerback Tramon Williams was penalized when he appeared to beat the snap before Chargers rookie kicker Josh Lambo pushed his 39-yard field-goal attempt to the right. The ball was moved 5 yards closer and Lambo drilled a 34-yarder after time expired for a 30-27 win.
   Browns special teams coordinator Chris Tabor said Thursday that he believes Williams timed the snap perfectly and did not commit a penalty. Browns coach Mike Pettine would not divulge what the NFL told the team regarding its review of the contentious play.
   League spokesman Michael Signora said it did not have the right angle of the play and its video is inconclusive.
   Williams said discussing the matter now is irrelevant since the Browns lost.

   CINCINNATI (AP) - A star University of Dayton basketball player has sued the Ohio school in federal court over his suspension after a sexual assault accusation.
   Dyshawn (duh-SHAHN') Pierre's (pee-EHRZ') lawsuit asks a U.S. district court judge to order his reinstatement, and also seeks unspecified damages.  The lawsuit notes that Montgomery County prosecutors declined to file charges against Pierre after what he says was a consensual sexual encounter with a female UD student last spring.
   His lawsuit filed Wednesday says the school's investigation was "fundamentally unfair" and reached a "wholly irrational, unsubstantiated" conclusion after a hearing that failed to accommodate Pierre's learning disability.
   The school declined comment on the lawsuit, but says it complies with federal requirements.
   The 6-foot-6 senior from Toronto has played a key role in the Flyers' recent basketball success.
