Sports Minute: Here is the latest Indiana sports news from The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Chevrolet engines have powered some of IndyCar's biggest winners over the last six years. Their drivers have won three of five races this season, four straight series titles and claimed the top four starting spots in the Indianapolis 500. So why is there so much chatter about Chevy vs. Honda in Sunday's race? It's the one mountain Chevy hasn't quite conquered.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Rookie Robert Wickens has crashed during practice for the Indianapolis 500. It is another blow to the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports team. The Canadian driver hit the outside wall coming out of the second turn on Indy's 2.5-mile oval. He has been cleared to drive, but the No. 6 Honda-powered car had heavy damage. Teammate James Hinchcliffe did not qualify for Sunday's race and remains without a ride. He is fifth in the standings.

(AP) - Brian Bowen remains in NCAA limbo and mired in the muck of an ongoing federal investigation, so the NBA might be his best option. He's weighing a tough decision. He doesn't know if he'll be eligible to play college ball, and he has to decide by the end of the month whether he wants to stay in the NBA draft. Other NBA hopefuls like Billy Preston and De'Anthony Melton are also looking to move on from their lost college year in the pro ranks.

(AP) - Attorneys for Lou Holtz say the former Notre Dame coach and the news website The Daily Beast have resolved a defamation lawsuit filed by the ex-ESPN analyst and college football Hall of Famer. The Daily Beast has apologized for and corrected a headline that said Holtz called immigrants "deadbeats" in a speech he gave during the Republican National Convention.
