Juan Pablo Montoya to drive for Team Penske

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Juan Pablo Montoya is leaving NASCAR for a return to IndyCar, where he’ll drive for Chip Ganassi rival Roger Penske.

The Colombian has agreed to join Team Penske next season as a teammate to current IndyCar points leader Helio Castroneves and Will Power. He could also drive in some NASCAR races as part of the deal.

The move could be seen as a betrayal by Montoya against longtime team owner Ganassi.

Ganassi decided in August he was not bringing Montoya back to his NASCAR program next season. But he and Penske are fierce rivals in IndyCar, and Ganassi driver Scott Dixon is currently locked in the championship battle with Castroneves.

Free throws lift Sun over Fever, 82-80 in OT

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — It turned into a spirited seven-on-seven game in the regular-season finale for the Connecticut Sun and Indian Fever.

Despite finishing with their worst record in franchise history (10-24), the Sun sent a near-capacity crowd home happy Sunday with an 82-80 victory in overtime.

Izzy Castro Marques made two free throws with 1.9 seconds and finished with 19 points for the Sun, who won three of their last five games despite several injuries.

Both teams played with seven players. Indiana rested starters Tamika Catchings, Shavonte Zellous and Briann January ahead of the playoffs. Jess Davenport and Jess Breland also didn’t dress.
