Tiger Turning it on at Cadillac Tournament

DORAL, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods tied his personal best with 17 birdies over two rounds on the Blue Monster. What mattered more to him was a two-shot lead going into the weekend at the Cadillac Championship.

On a leaderboard packed with golf's biggest names, Woods seized control with six birdies in an eight-hole stretch around the turn. That carried him to a 7-under 65, two shots clear of former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell (67).

A birdie-birdie finish by McDowell prevented a dream final group -- Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson, sparked by a visit to Augusta National earlier this week, had a 67 and joined Steve Stricker (67) three shots out of the lead.

Rory McIlroy showed signs of turning the corner with a 69, his first round under par this year.

Sabres To Build Sprawling Hockey Complex

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have the deed in hand, giving them the go-ahead to develop a $172 million hockey-themed entertainment complex across from their downtown arena.

Sabres chief development officer Cliff Benson and Mayor Byron Brown officially signed the paperwork to transfer the former parking lot in exchange for $2.2 million on Friday.

Construction crews have already broken ground, with work scheduled to be done by spring 2015. Once completed, the complex will include two ice rinks, a 200-room hotel overlooking the city's harbor front, a parking ramp and retail space.

Called HARBORcenter, the complex will serve as home to the Buffalo Regals, a local minor hockey association, which the Sabres acquired this week.

Docs Clear Rose To Play; Star Says 'Not Yet'

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says Derrick Rose is "not quite" ready to return from his knee injury.

He says the superstar point guard continues to practice without restrictions but won't play in games until he's ready.

ESPNChicago.com reported Friday that Rose's doctor has cleared him to play. Thibodeau said a decision "hasn't been finalized yet."

Asked if Rose would be allowed to play if he felt he was able, Thibdodeau said, "We'll cross that bridge when we get there. We're just going day by day."

Rose tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in last year's playoff-opener against Philadelphia.

Big East Completes Football-Basketball Breakup

The Big East says it has reached an agreement with seven departing basketball members that will allow them to separate from the football schools and create their own conference on July 1.

The announcement provided no details, but the football schools are expected to receive about $100 million from a $110 million stash the conference had built up over the last two and a half years through exit and entry fees as well as NCAA men's basketball tournament funds.

The seven Catholic schools that are leaving to form a basketball-centric conference are expected to get the Big East name, along with the opportunity to play their league tournament in Madison Square Garden.

Danica OK After Hit in Head by Rock at Dirt Track

LAS VEGAS -- Danica Patrick said she doesn't have a concussion from Sunday's hard crash at Phoenix, but she joked she might have one from Thursday night when a rock hit her in the head.

"I feel like I got a concussion last night when I got hit with a rock at the [Las Vegas Motor Speedway] dirt track," Patrick said Friday. "It's really sore. It hit me straight in the head, and I went to the ground. Good thing I had a hat on, or I feel there would have been blood."

NASCAR officials spoke with Patrick Friday morning and asked her if she was OK. She said she was fine.
