CELTICS-HORNETS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Avery Bradley had 30 points and eight rebounds, and the Boston Celtics beat the Charlotte Hornets 116-104 on Monday night for an important Eastern Conference victory.

Evan Turner added 15 points, while Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart each had 14 as the Celtics won for the 10th time in the last 16 games.

Boston moved back into eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings, a few percentage points ahead of Brooklyn in the battle for the final playoff spot.

Kemba Walker led a furious fourth-quarter comeback that fell short, finishing with 28 points and 12 assists. Gerald Henderson added 17 points for Charlotte, which has dropped four of its last five games.

PANTHERS-MOVES

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Panthers announced they've signed free agent running back/kick returner Jordan Todman from the Jacksonville Jaguars to a one-year contract.

Financial details were not released Monday.

Todman, 25, has spent the last three seasons with the Jaguars. He played in all 16 games in 2014, carrying 32 times for 186 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown. He also caught 25 passes for 198 yards with a 23-yard score.

He could contribute on special teams, too.

Todman was Jacksonville's primary kickoff returner, averaging 25.6 yards on 38 returns and was tied for second on the team with seven special teams tackles.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Todman bring "versatility" at running back and "has some return skills. We are always looking to be good in that area."

NCAA-FINAL FOUR LOOKAHEAD

Four No. 1 seeds in the women's Final Four

UNDATED (AP) - The women's Final Four will have a familiar feel to it with three of last year's teams back in the national semifinals.

No. 1 seeds UConn, Notre Dame and Maryland all return to the Final Four while South Carolina is making its first appearance. It's the third time in the history of the Final Four that all four of the top seeds made it this far. It also happened in 1989 and 2012.

The Huskies will be trying for their third straight national championship and 10th overall which would move Geno Auriemma into a tie with vaunted UCLA men's coach John Wooden for the most all-time.

UConn will face Maryland and Notre Dame plays South Carolina on Sunday in Tampa, Florida. Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley will become the second person to both play and coach in the Final Four, joining Baylor's Kim Mulkey.
