Kate Lightfoot hopes Yorkshire Jets can kick-start their season with a win over Team Northumbria in the Vitality Netball Superleague. Cam Fowler Jersey . Sky Live: Northumbria v Jets We preview Monday nights action Both sides are still searching for their first victory of the campaign ahead of Monday nights match, live on Sky Sports.Lightfoot has been absent since Super Saturday with a broken finger, which means she cannot face Team Northumbria, and the Jets defender watched Saturdays 51-38 defeat by Hertfordshire Mavericks from the sidelines.   But she believes Yorkshires new-look squad are showing signs of improvement. Fiji shooter Maria Lutua is also part of Yorkshires much changed squad Lightfoot told Sky Sports: So far the results weve had arent what we would have wanted, but from a positive note, from my perspective Im seeing the girls put in more consistent performances over longer periods.But obviously I want to be a part of that and help, which is very frustrating.Team Northumbria were beaten 58-28 by Team Bath on Friday night, leaving them bottom of the table, and Lightfoot believes the upcoming fixture is important for both sides.Weve both had difficult starts. I dont think any of the games this year are easy games. Team Northumbria can climb off the foot of the table with a win We came up against a full strength Loughborough first game of the season, the reigning champions Surrey, and Bath who always have a good squad.Its been a tough draw but the squad is improving and the challenges weve had to face will put us in good stead for the game on Monday.England defender Stacey Francis was one of Yorkshires pre-season and Lightfoot believes her skipper can lead the Jets to a confidence-boosting result. Stacey Francis joined the Jets from Team Bath We have got belief, we know weve got talented players, but we need to have that belief as a unit now, and put that good squad performance out over a 60-minute game.If we can do that on Monday, Im quite confident we can come away with some much needed points and get our season going. Netball London Live Surrey Storm v Hertfordshire Mavericks with Sky Tickets We have got the personnel, weve got the talent, Weve got Stacey Francis as our captain now and she is really leading by example, setting really high standards for myself and the other girls.Weve got England youth coming through, experienced players coming back.

Tyson Fury might be on a boxing break but his cousin Hughie hopes to fight WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in the spring. Terrell Owens Cowboys Jersey.Wilder, 31, broke his right hand during a fourth defence of his title against fellow American Chris Arreola in July and is not expected to box again until March or April.Were in negotiations with Wilder at the minute and hopefully it will come off so I can have a showdown with him, Fury, 22, said. Im not surprised by the speed talk of a world title fight has come round. Its come round for me at the perfect time actually.I definitely see ways I can beat Wilder. Me and my dad have already sat down and looked at plenty of ways I can beat him. Lets put it this way, hes never fought a decent opponent. Its wide open.Wilder I think is a bit chinny, to be honest. Were looking at early March. Me and Tyson went over to New York to watch him live when he fought the Polish kid Artur Szpilka, and he was getting beaten then, he was getting out-boxed until he landed the bomb.So he can be out-boxed, easy. He just has a big punch and I can definitely take his shots. Ive never been wobbled in my life or been put down in all my fights. Ive got a good chin.Because of the illness Ive had, and especially in the last fight, I was always fighting the illness in my body. But now I feel great, Ive been on the right medication, Ive passed all that and its the best Ive ever felt.Hughie also gave an update on cousin Tyson. Hopefully Tyson will come back stronger next year, he said.Hes on the right medication and hes on the mend, so hopefully next year well both be world champions, hell be world champion again and Ill be coming up behind him.And the younger Fury claimed he had turned down a fight with fellow Briton and IBF world champion Anthony Joshua.They offered us the fight [on Dec 10] but it was silly money, Fury said. My dad [Peter] was in negotiations with them but they didnt want it so they went somewhere else.Id take that fight tomorrow. But they were talking stupid at the end of the day. They just offered us the fight to say theyd offered it. But wed take the fight tomorrow if everything was right financially. Thats the fight I want. Bob Lilly Cowboys Jersey .

Match factsAugust 18, 2016 Start time 1045 local (0945GMT)Big PictureThere is not much time for Pakistan to bask in their Oval victory. They have since hopped on a plane to Dublin as they switch into one-day mode with a two-match series against Ireland.The contrast between their rise in Test cricket and struggles in the one-day game has been stark: they sit ninth in the ODI rankings, outside of the automatic qualification places for the 2019 World Cup.Since the 2015 World Cup they have been captained by Azhar Ali who suffered a 3-0 whitewash at the hands of Bangladesh before two series wins over Zimbabwe - although they lost a match to them in Harare - and one against Sri Lanka. They took the lead against England last year before being comfortably beaten 3-1 and were overturned 2-0 in New Zealand in January.There are three players in this current squad who will have memories of the first meeting between these sides on that famous day in Jamaica: Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Umar Gul were part of the three-wicket defeat. Six years later, Hafeez and Malik were also involved in a tie in Dublin.But, like Pakistan, Ireland are struggling in the one-day rankings, currently adrift of Afghanistan and Zimbabwe at the bottom. Their crown of leading Associate has been challenged; they shared their recent series against Afghanistan 2-2. There is a concerning reliance on Ed Joyce at the top of the order - against Afghanistan he was almost 200 runs ahead of Irelands next highest scorer - and they need much more from the likes of Paul Stirling and captain William Porterfield.Form guide(last five completed matches, most recent first)Ireland WLWLL Pakistan LLLLLIn the spotlightAzhar Ali regained his form in the final two Tests against England, making a fine century at Edgbaston, a solid 49 after being promoted to open the batting and then finishing the series with a six. Now he has to switch his focus back to trying to find a winning formula in one-day cricket. And he needs to score runs as well. After being appointed captain he enjoyed an early bounce with two centuries in first five games, but has now gone 11 innings without a fifty. His strike-rate, too, has come under scrutiny with the pressure it can put on the rest of the top order.Barry McCarthy, who plays county cricket for Durham, has enjoyed an impressive start to his Ireland career with 14 wickets in six ODIs. He helped cover for the abbsence of Boyd Rankin against Afghanistan and will be asked to do the same again after Rankin was ruled out of the rest of the season with injury. Deion Sanders Youth Jersey. He can be expected to share the new ball with Tim Murtagh.Teams newsRankin has been ruled out with a stress fracture of the tibia which removes one of Irelands senior pace bowlers. But they have not called in a replacement with Craig Young now available after an elbow injury. The batting will be boosted by the return of Niall OBrien.Ireland (probable) 1 William Porterfield (capt), 2 Ed Joyce, 3 Niall OBrien, 4 Gary Wilson, 5 Kevin OBrien, 6 Paul Stirling, 7 Stuart Poynter (wk), 8 Andy McBrine, 9 Tim Murtagh, 10 Barry McCarthy, 11 Peter Chase/Craig YoungPakistan may need to strike a balance between giving some of new arrivals, and those who have been sidelined during the Tests, some cricket and ensuring they do not take a half-hearted approach to these matches. Sharjeel Khan has been called up after a successful A-tour of England, while Umar Gul has the opportunity to show he can still deliver his pinpoint yorkers.Pakistan (from) Azhar Ali (capt), Sharjeel Khan, Sami Aslam, Mohammad Hafeez, Baber Azam, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Umar Gul, Imad Wasim, Yasir Shah, Mohammad NawazPitch and conditionsThe forecast for Thursday is promisingly dry between two days of significant rain. Of the surface, Ed Joyce said: Were expecting two good pitches here as they normally are at Malahide.Stats and triviaWilliam Porterfield and Kevin OBrien are currently jostling to be Irelands leading ODI run-scorer: Porterfield sits on 2591 and OBrien has 2561Sharjeel Khan made 253 runs in four innings during the recent tri-series involving England Lions and Sri Lanka AThe overall head-to-head for these sides is 4-1 to Pakistan with one tie.QuotesIn the last few years we havent played very good cricket in one-dayers. Our performances are not as consistent as in Test cricket, and we need to really improve our skills.Azhar Ali takes a realistic approachThese guys are definitely favourites but weve got a good one-day team and are hopeful of giving them a few good games. Theres a lot of guys in good form in England which bodes well for us.Ed Joyce has a more optimistic approach ' ' '
Get ready for Delly - The Movie. Odell Beckham Jr Browns Jersey .The Milwaukee Bucks star is to be the subject of a feature film which will chart his rise from humble Australian beginnings to NBA champion with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.Dellavedova and his manager/business partner, Bruce Kaider, have teamed up with Los Angeles-based producers Zachary Green and Jason Shuman to develop the project.I am honoured the Bruce, Zachary and Jason think enough about my journey to turn it into a feature film, Dellavedova said via a press release.I am thrilled to be working with this incredible group to tell my story to inspire kids around the world to dream big and that hard work and perseverance pays off.Green said Dellavedovas story was that of a blue-collar kid made good.Everyone dreams of the one in a million chance of playing in the NBA, but this blue-collar kid actually achieved it, he said.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup.

Hes stronger setting the edge in the running game, and as a pass-rusher, he has a lethal combination of first-step quickness, bend, power and hand-to-hand combat skills. ' ' '
LONDON -- World Cup qualifying in North America is set to be overhauled to avoid shutting out the majority of countries in the CONCACAF region so early. Montez Sweat Redskins Jersey .CONCACAF President Victor Montagliani has instigated a review of an archaic format that leaves only six out of the regions 35 teams still in with a shot at qualifying for Russia in 2018.Alongside a potential new name to replace the corruption-tainted CONCACAF brand, revamping qualifying to be more inclusive has emerged as a key objective for Montagliani after five months in charge of the confederation covering North and Central America and the Caribbean.Something needs to change because you cant have 85 percent of your members who are on the outside looking in two years before the World Cup, Montagliani told The Associated Press. It doesnt make sense.Since qualifying for the 1998 World Cup, CONCACAF has used a system where teams play home and away in early rounds. Once 12 nations are remaining there are three groups of four, which produces six teams for a final round.The United States, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, and Trinidad and Tobago are the last teams standing , chasing three of CONCACAFs automatic qualification places. Starting next month, they play each other twice in a league.Its great for those six teams over the next year and a bit but how about the other ones? Montagliani said. Its hard.Hard for players to raise their standard and hard for teams to generate revenue to fund soccer development.Caribbean countries have problems climbing the FIFA rankings, just because we are not able to play as many international games as you want to, John Krishnadath, president of the Suriname soccer federation, told the AP earlier this year, while also highlighting the high cost of traveling to matches.Surinames World Cup journey ended in June 2015 immediately after entering in the second round of CONCACAF qualifying. The first seven CONCACAF teams were eliminated back in March 2015. Its so long ago that Montagliani is the third president CONCACAF has had during qualifying for the 2018 tournament.Former CONCACAF head Jeffrey Webb was first arrested as part of the sprawling American investigation into soccer corruption in May 2015 and his temporary replacement, Alfredo Hawit, was indicted seven months later. Montagliani said CONCACAF competitions and the interests of teams were neglected in an era when the leadership was motivated by corruptly extorting money from the confederation and its commercial backers.Can you imagine you are a country trying to find a sponsor and they say, `Im all for it, whens your next big game? And its three years from now, Montagliani said during an interview in London.So we seriously need to look at our World Cup qualifying system that is a bit archaic. We need to be a bit more all-encompassing. Were looking at how we balance competitions with our commercial (priorities) without putting too much stress on already too busy calendars as well.But Montagliani is certain qualifying must change, although there could be a proliferation of games that draw smaller crowds and little broadcast revenue.Discussing a new configuration, Montagliani said: Maybe its like the Europeans or maybe its like the South Americans with a league -- or its a hybrid of the two.In Europe, countries are split into nine groups, balanced according to their rankings, and play games from September 2016 to October 2017. The group winners qualify automatically and the eight best runners-up will contest playoffs for the remaining four UEFA spots in Russia.In South America, the 10 CONMEBOL members are in a two-year league that started in October 2015. The top four have guaranteed World Cup places and the fifth-place team has to go through a playoff against a country from Oceania.Each region will gain more automatic World Cup places if FIFA President Gianni Infantino achieves his mission to expand the finals from 32 to 48 teams by 2026 when CONCACAF is in a strong position to bring the tournament to North America.Separately, Montagliani is also exploring how to upgrade CONCACAFs premier club competition. The Champions League is currently nearing the end of its group stage -- featuring eight, three-team mini-leagues -- before a knockout phase, starting with quarterfinals.The Champions League is a real opportunity for us to grow that product because when you look at the latter stages of it, its quite good, really well attended and great TV audiences, Montagliani said. But the early stages are poor, not well attended and maybe not the best stadiums.So I think we need to rejig that so it really becomes an impactful event both for television and our fans and on the technical side so it is quality all the way through -- from the group stage to the final.---Rob Harris is at and Bryce Love Jersey . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. Charles Mann Youth Jersey .

HONOLULU -- Kansas must venture to Hawaii for its season opener, but anticipation over the debut of Josh Jackson will not let attention wander.Rated as the No. 1 recruit as part of an incoming national class loaded with talent, Jackson is an addition the Jayhawks hope will enable them to reach the Final Four for the first time since 2012.That is the biggest goal entering a season in which Kansas is expected to rule the Big 12 again and tie the all-time Division I record of 13 consecutive conference championships set by UCLA from 1967-79.But first things first as the season begins Friday in the Armed Forces Classic against reigning Big Ten champion Indiana.The opener will be followed by a game Tuesday against top-rated Duke at the Champions Classic in New York.Hardly an easy start for any freshman, including Jackson, whose position is hard to define.Im just easing my way in, just trying not to think about making too many mistakes, Jackson said after playing four different positions in the second of two exhibition games the Jayhawks played.Just going out and trying to play basketball. Its just a game. I really enjoy playing each and every position. So, coming up this year, I think you guys will see me in a bunch of different positions.If he provides the expected impact, the No. 3 Jayhawks should be quite formidable. They return one of the most experienced set of small guards in America.Bullish senior Frank Mason never shies away from contact underneath and came within one assist of a triple-double in the Jayhawks first exhibition. Junior Devonte Graham was the most outstanding player in last years Big 12 Tournament when he was regarded as the most improved player on a 33-5 squad that bowed out in the Elite Eight against eventual NCAA champion Villanova.Each dealt with minor ailmeents in exhibition games -- Mason, a jammed thumb and sore shin; Graham, with cramping. DaRon Payne Womens Jersey. .We have to get (Graham) to where he can play 30-plus (minutes) along with Frank. Thats key for us, said Bill Self, who enters his 14th season as Kansas coach.Indiana was a blueblood that started poorly last season. A difficult opening stretch included a 1-2 mark at the Maui Invitational and a 20-point loss to Duke in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Yet the Hoosiers went 15-3 in the Big Ten and finished 27-8 with a loss to eventual NCAA runner-up North Carolina in the Sweet 16.Sophomore forward OG Anunoby came on late for the Hoosiers and should easily surpass the 13.7 minutes he averaged, while contributing in all areas.Hes a great example, said Indiana coach Tom Crean, of somebody thats getting better constantly, understands that it all starts with what you do with your defensive mindset and how important it is to make the game easier for everybody else.Others must seamlessly fit into the Hoosiers rhythmic ball movement, particularly after losing All-Big Ten point guard Yogi Ferrell.Pittsburgh transfer Josh Newkirk will step into that spot after recovering from microfracture surgery on his knee. Crean estimates Newkirks vertical jump has improved seven to eight inches since arriving at Indiana, then healing.Another guard, junior James Blackmon, recovered from an injured knee that limited him to 13 games last year. He offers scoring pop. Underneath, and high expectations exist for 6-10 sophomore center Thomas Bryant, who was a 68.3 percent shooter last season.We dont just want to be a good offensive team, cautioned Bryant. We want to be defensive, as well. ' ' '

MADRID -- At least in the Champions League, there is no sign of a letdown for Atletico Madrid.The Spanish club again triumphed in the European competition on Wednesday, defeating already eliminated PSV Eindoven 2-0 to retain a perfect record and secure first place in Group D with one round of matches remaining.In contrast, Atletico lost three of its last four games in the Spanish league, with the latest defeat a painful 3-0 loss at home against Real Madrid in the city derby. But it picked up its fifth win in as many matches in the Champions League with second-half goals by Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann at Vicente Calderon Stadium on Wednesay.We wanted to put Saturdays loss (to Madrid) behind us, Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. For the club and the fans this is an important win, it sends us into the knockout stage in a privileged position and allows us to keep competing for our goals.The result left Atletico with six more points than Bayern Munich, which lost 3-2 to FC Rostov in Russia but had already advanced from the group.We wanted to give a different impression and win this game to finish first, Griezmann said. We need to keep working hard both in the (Spanish) league and in the Champions League. We need to keep giving everything we have. Today was a complicated match and we played well.PSV remained with one point, three less than Rostov. In the final group round, Atletico plays at Bayern Munich and PSV hosts Rostov to fight for a spot in the Europa League next season.If we win the game, we kknow well stay in Europe. Byron Scott Jersey. . Thats our objective, PSV coach Phillip Cocu said. Today I saw some good things and it was our errors that cost us. Thats the difference at this level against a big team like Atletico.Last seasons runner-up in the Champions league, Atletico is the only team to have won all of its first five matches in the group stage, its best ever start in the competition. It had already qualified before Wednesdays game.Atletico had been held scoreless in its last two games, and it took a while before it got the attack going against PSV.But after a slow first half, the hosts got on the board in the 55th with Gameiros low shot into the far corner after a well-timed pass by Griezmann, and Griezmann got his own goal around 10 minutes later with a shot from inside the area.Gameiro nearly added another but his header struck the crossbar.The goal was a demonstration of his qualities: speed, power, finish, Simeone said of Gameiro. It was a great finish. Thats what both he and Griezmann offer. It was an important moment both for him and the team.After the recent setbacks in the league, Simeone reverted to a more secure scheme defensively, with midfielder Tiago playing from the start along with Gabi Fernandez, which was enough to keep PSV from having many significant scoring chances.Simeones team has won 28 of its 33 games at the Calderon in European competitions.

Miami Dolphins safety Reshad Jones will miss the rest of the season with a torn rotator cuff, coach Adam Gase said Tuesday. Darius Slayton Youth Jersey .Jones, who will have season-ending surgery, faces a four to six month recovery, a source told ESPNs Adam Caplan.While Jones season is over, cornerback Chris Culliver is slated to practice for first time this year, sources told ESPNs Adam Schefter.Jones suffered his injury in Sundays victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jones had sought a second opinion in the hopes he could return at some point this season.The loss of Jones is a major blow for Miamis 27th-rated defense. Jones is second on the team with 51 tackles, and he picked up his first interception of the season off Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday.Last season Jones led Miami in tackles (135) and interceptions (five) on his way to his first Pro Bowl.Backup safety Michael Thomas will replace Jones in the starting lineup.Culliver was placed on the physically unable to perform list when he signed with the Dolphins in August as he was recovering from a knee injury he suffered last November. He was released by the Redskins in May after completing just one season of a four-year contract he signed with the team in 2015.His 2015 season ended on Thanksgiving Day, when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee during a practice. He started six games before his injury.ESPNs James Walker contributed to this report. Oshane Ximines Youth Jersey . That gave fans outside Joe Louis Arena another chance to ask for autographs from the 19-year-old whose stardom in the NHL has arrived earlier than most expected. Saquon Barkley Youth Jersey . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA.BOSTON, Massachusetts - If it was possible for steam to emit from a mans ears, manager John Gibbons office would have been engulfed by a blinding fog after Sundays 5-4 series-losing defeat to the Boston Red Sox. "Thats the most frustrating loss of the year, to be honest with you," said Gibbons. "Simply because of who were playing, where were at and so many opportunities. I cant remember that many opportunities we let get away." Case in point: the sixth inning, when the Blue Jays were trailing 4-2. Josh Thole, whod replaced Adam Lind – more on that in a moment – walked. Rajai Davis and Colby Rasmus followed with singles to load the bases with nobody out. Toronto didnt score. J.P. Arencibia and Maicer Izturis were retired on infield flies and Emilio Bonifacio, pinch hitting for Munenori Kawasaki against Red Sox left-hander Craig Breslow, struck out. Inning over. While the Jays did manage to recover, tying the game thanks to solo home runs by Jose Reyes in the seventh and Jose Bautista in the ninth, it wasnt enough. With one out in the Boston ninth, Juan Perez gave up a single to Brandon Snyder and then walked Jacoby Ellsbury. Casey Janssen replaced Perez and got a ground ball out of Shane Victorino, which was misplayed by Thole and rolled into right field. Jonathan Diaz, pinch running for Snyder, scored the game-winning run. Thole, appearing in only his second major league game at first base but who has played the position 156 times in the minors, cut to the chase. "It sucks," he said. "Ive just got to catch the ball and make an out." Sport often weaves a narrative. In that vein, perhaps its fitting that in their 81st game, the halfway point of what has been a disappointing season, the Blue Jays suffered a disappointing loss. Lind woke up Sunday morning with tightness in his back, the first time this season hes made mention of a problem which plagued him between 2010-2012. Lind is hopeful he misses no more than "a couple of days." After the game, it was revealed Mark DeRosa injured his neck taking batting practice on Sunday morning and wasnt available. Gibbons short bench was rendered even shorter and he was forced to go with the struggling Bonifacio in that sixth inning pinch hit spott. Daniel Jones Jersey. Perez, riding a 15-inning scoreless streak, took the loss when the unearned run scored in the ninth. Ordinarily, he wouldnt have been Gibbons first choice to start the frame but because starters Chien-Ming Wang and Josh Johnson gave the club only five combined innings on Thursday and Friday nights, the bullpen was taxed. In one game, it all added up. Just like inconsistent starting pitching, sometimes shoddy defence and hit-and-miss offence have conspired to add up to a 40-41 record through 81 games. The second half begins with a Canada Day matinee back home against the Detroit Tigers. The Blue Jays are expecting a sell-out crowd. "Hopefully, the crowd gets behind us," said Mark Buehrle. "I mean, the last couple of games we were home, it was pretty impressive playing there. Hopefully, we can come back and start playing better." Bautista has 200th home run ball Jose Bautista hit the 200th and 201st home runs of his major league career in Saturdays 6-2 win over the Red Sox. His 200th, a two run shot in the sixth, cleared the Green Monster seats and landed in the parking lot on the other side of the left field wall. A clubhouse attendant retrieved the ball for Bautista, who, by the way, was wearing a pair of R.A. Dickeys pants to accommodate the high socks look. Bautista changed his look to change his luck at the plate and, apparently, it worked. He had three hits, including a game-tying home run (202) in the ninth, in Sundays series finale. Reyes being patient with himself Superstars are used to having success. It makes the first few games after a long injury layoff especially difficult. Jose Reyes keeps reminding himself to be patient, stay positive. "Im just going to continue to go to home plate aggressive," said Reyes. "I know that I missed a long time and its going to take a little while. Hopefully sooner than later, I get my timing back but Im going to go to home plate with the same attitude and just try to put a good swing on the ball. Whatever happens, happens. I come in here and work with (hitting coach) Chad (Mottola) every day on my swing and I need to understand that its a process." In five games since his return from a 66-game absence with a sprained left ankle, Reyes is 4-19 (.211) with a home run and two walks. ' ' '

They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- With injuries impacting their lineup early, freshmen have had to play big minutes in Penn States new fast-paced offense.They havent disappointed and on Tuesday, the Nittany Lions promising freshman class got help from a handful of veterans to pull away from Grand Canyon 85-76.Rookie Lamar Stevens scored 19 points and top returning scorers Payton Banks (15) and Shep Garner (14) chipped in to lead the Nittany Lions in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament.I think weve made a lot of good strides over the last three games, Banks said. I think were jelling well. I feel like the rotation, were starting to get used to it, starting to get used to where guys are going to be.They were all over the paint in scoring 40 points and netting 20 second-chance points against the Antelopes. Along with Stevens, freshman Tony Carr also had his third-straight double-digit game with 10 points.This is the type of scoring potential Penn State coach Pat Chambers envisioned when he pledged to meld young and old and chase 80-plus points per game in the preseason. To get there, the Nittany Lions (2-1) needed to overcome a 0-for-9 shooting slump in the first five minutes of the second half that saw them squander a 48-41 halftime lead.I found out a lot about my team, Chambers said. They dug deep, they got back to the middle of the ring, they punched back and we took the lead.Joshua Braun made 5 of 10 3-pointers and led Grand Canyon (0-2) with 25 points. Oscar Frayer, Darion Clark, Keonta Vernon and Shaq Carr also finished in double figures for the Antelopes with 13, 12, 11 and 10 points, respectively.Braun hit 2 of 3 free throws with 15:29 left to give Grand Canyon a 50-48 lead -- its last of the game.The Nittany Lions put together an impressive 13-7 run immediately thereafter in which Banks and Stevens combiined for all 13 points. Bart Starr Jersey. Stevens tipped in a rebound with 6:06 left to put Penn State up 75-63 for its biggest lead.We knew it was going to be tough game, Grand Canyon coach Dan Majerle said. Were shorthanded, DeWayne Russell is our starting point guard, he wasnt able to play the first two games, well get him back.BUSY SCHEDULEPenn State played its third game in five days and its schedule remains hectic for the near future. The Nittany Lions will cap the tournament with back-to-back games this weekend and will play five times in the final 11 days of the month.MORE FROM MOOREJulian Moore led Penn State with nine rebounds and had the type of game Chambers hoped he would have earlier. But foul trouble in the first two games limited Moores minutes. He played 20 against the Antelopes.HURT LIONSGuard Josh Reaves missed his third game with a lower leg injury and hes not expected to play this weekend. Forward Davis Zemgulis missed his first game with a concussion and Isaiah Washington also sat out for Penn State with an unspecified ailment.THE BIG PICTUREGrand Canyon: The Antelopes are 0 for 6 against Power 5 teams and have been outscored 550-365 since they joined the Division I ranks.Penn State: The Nittany Lions have never began a season with three freshmen starters in three straight games as they have with Stevens, Watkins and Tony Carr this year. Carr and Stevens were in double figures for the third time and Watkins finished with nine points and six rebounds.UP NEXTGrand Canyon travels to Uncasville, Connecticut to continue the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament against Albany on Saturday.Penn State will also visit Uncasville on Saturday where it will face No. 1 Duke.

The summer is winding down, so we are getting closer to the college basketball season. Candido Ramirez Jersey . I cannot wait for it to start, baby!One thing that always interests me before the start of a new season is the list of coaching changes. I know there can be a lack of job security in coaching, and at times a veteran coach will go for a change of scenery.This season, there are a number of coaching moves that have piqued my interest.Here are seven coaching changes to keep an eye on this season. Well see if these veterans can continue to have success at their new schools.Jamie Dixon, TCU Horned FrogsAfter serving 13 seasons as head coach at the University of Pittsburgh, Dixon decided to take over at his alma mater. Dixon returns home to TCU where he played for Jim Killingsworth and led the Horned Frogs to Southwest Conference titles as a junior and senior. Dixon is one of only eight coaches nationally to guide their program to 11 NCAA tournament appearances in the last 13 seasons. It will be a challenge to add to that streak in the competitive Big 12. Give him time and he will build a winner.Josh Pastner, Georgia Tech Yellow JacketsHe opted to leave Memphis, where he compiled a 167-73 record over seven seasons. The Tigers earned bids to the NCAA tournament four times during his tenure. Moving to the ACC is tough enough, but the Yellow Jackets lost several key players from last season. Rebuilding will not be easy, and Pastner has added a couple of transfers to help out. Fans must be patient as Pastner really knows and loves the game. He eats, drinks and sleeps basketball.Pastner made a good move bringing in former Portland coach Eric Reveno to join his staff.Jerod Haase, Stanford CardinalA former California Golden Bear as a player, Haase takes over for Johnny Dawkins. He comes to Palo Alto after completing his fourth season as the head coach at UAB, where he led the Blazers to a regular-season Conference USA championship in 2016 and the programs 15th all-time NCAA tournament appearance in 2015. Haase compiled an 80-53 overall record while improving the Blazers win total every year. Haase led the Blazers to a 26-7 overall record and a 16-2 conference mark last season.Johnny Dawkins, UCF KnightsThe former Duke All-American wasnt out of work for long. Dawkins arrives in Orlando after an eight-year stint at Stanford, where he led the Cardinal to five postseason appearances, including a Sweet Sixteen appearance in 2014. Dawkins also guided the Cardinal to two NIT Championships during his tenure (2012, 2015). Stanford put together four 20-win seasons in Dawkins time as head coach. He is only the second coach in Stanford history with at least four 20-win seasons. Now he should make a difference in the American.Bryce Drew, Vanderbilt CommodoresHe replaces Kevin Stallings. Drew, a three-time Horizon League Coach of the Year, comes to the Commodores after a five-year stint at Valparaiso, where he averaged 25 wins per season. He won four regular season championships ?and made four postseason appearances, two in the NCAA Tournament and two in the NIT. In his five seasons at Valparaiso, Drew compiled a 124-49 overall record and in 2016, led the Crusaders to a 30-7 overall record, the most wins in program history, and a berth in the NIT title game. The cupboard is not bare as the Commodores have?Luke Kornet?among the veterans returning.Kevin Stallings, Pittsburgh PanthersGoing from the SEC to the ACC is not easy. After spending the previous 17 seasons at Vanderbilt. Stallings enters his 24th season as a head coach with an impressive 455-283 (.617) record overall. His passion and energy should help make the transition work at Pittsburgh, but filling Dixons shoes is a challenge too.Herb Sendek, Santa Clara BroncosHe sat out a season after being let go by Arizona State. Sendek has been a winner everywhere he has been, and he knows his Xs and Os. Heading into his 23rd season as a head coach, he has the advantage of getting to work with his team on a trip to Italy during the offseason. Sendek also has a roster with six players at 6-foot-9 or taller, which should help. It is never easy facing the likes of Gonzaga and Saint Marys in the WCC. Jurgen Damm Jersey .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Alejandro Palacios Jersey .

CLEVELAND -- The Pittsburgh Steelers scored eight points with no time on the clock at the end of the first half on Sunday.The Cleveland Browns committed two penalties to give the Steelers two untimed downs. Its a rare day when the Browns complete a game without some sort of head-shaking event, and this day has been no different.Steelers coach Mike Tomlin aggressively pushed the envelope late in the half. Pittsburgh led 6-0 and had driven to the Browns 3-yard line with three seconds left. Tomlin went for the touchdown.Roethlisberger threw incomplete to Antonio Brown. But Browns corner Briean Boddy-Calhoun was flagged for holding LeVeon Bell in the end zone.That gave Pittsburgh another play from the 1 with no time on the clock. Roethlisberger took a shotgun snap, faked a handoff to Bell and threw a quick slant to Brown. It fell incomplete, but Joe Haden was flagged for interference.Pittsburgh got another extra play.This time Roethlisberger handed to Bell from the shotgun, and he scored standing up. Roethlisbergers two point conversion went to David Johnson, and the Steelers went to the locker room up 14-0 in a game they dominated.Oh yeah, it was frustrating, said Browns coach Hue Jackson. Those are tough calls and one that wwas made that I thought was kind of . Orbelin Pineda Mexico Jersey. .. it is what it is. We have to find a way to keep them out of there. Thats what it comes down to.Jackson said he thought the Steelers could have been called for delay of game on the play that resulted in holding.There is nothing you can do, he said. They either have to call it or not.In the first half, Pittsburgh had 18 first downs to the Browns four. The Steelers outgunned the Browns 217 to 50, and held the ball for 20:37 of the first 30 minutes. The Browns ran 17 first-half plays, which ties for the fewest plays by a team in the first half this season (Patriots, vs. Bills in week four), according to ESPN Stats & Information.The Steelers wound up winning 24-9, snapping a four-game losing streak, and the Browns remained winless. Cleveland had 33 yards rushing in its 14th straight loss, dating to last season.In the previous game against Baltimore, the Browns called timeout before the first snap. Sunday against Pittsburgh they gave the Steelers two extra plays at the end of the half.Information from The Associated Press is included in this report. ' ' '

LOUIS -- For the first time in a while, the St. Louis Cardinals had good reason to use their closer. After such a long wait between pressure situations, Edward Mujica did not let anybody down. Mujica converted his first save chance in 18 games, working the last two innings in an 8-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs that ended a four-game losing streak and avoided a sweep on Sunday. "All the time its about consistency," Mujica said. "Sometimes days off are pretty good for pitchers. For my arm. Everybody knows were going to be out of this rough time." Pete Kozma singled home the tiebreaking run in the sixth. Matt Carpenter and Allen Craig each had three hits and drove in a run. Jon Jay and David Freese both drove in two runs, though they only had one hit between them. "That was a great at-bat by Pete, and couldnt have come at a better time," manager Mike Matheny said. "I thought the guys did a real good job of situational hitting, getting the runs in when they had money on the table." Mujica earned his 31st save in 33 chances and first since July 25 against the Phillies, overcoming Starlin Castros leadoff double in the eighth with just a one-run cushion. Then he retired the final five in a row in an outing that matched his longest of the year. The right-hander had been anticipating that after setup man Trevor Rosenthal threw 33 pitches and gave up the tying and go-ahead runs in two-thirds of an inning in a 6-5 loss. "We had that in mind, didnt necessarily commit to that," Matheny said. "We knew that would be an option to go for Chief for two." Randy Choate (2-1) faced one batter, getting leadoff man David DeJesus to pop out with two men on to end the sixth after the Cubs had tied it at 4 on RBI singles by Castro and Darwin Barney off Seth Maness. Barney, like Kozma an eighth-place hitter, had two RBI singles. Hes batting .215 overall but has a .317 average against St. Louis with two homers and 10 RBIs. "He battles up there and its hard to strike him out and hes going to give you an at-bat all the time," Cubs managger Dale Sveum said. Casemiro Jersey. "Hes a little battler." Tony Cruz doubled with two outs in the sixth off Blake Parker (1-2) and scored easily on Kozmas single. Parker was the winner Saturday with an inning of relief. Jay added a sacrifice fly in the seventh off Hector Rondon and the Cardinals got RBIs from Carpenter and Craig in the eighth off Michael Bowden. The Cardinals combined two singles, a walk, a steal and a sacrifice fly off Edwin Jackson in a three-run first. Matt Holliday had one of the RBIs plus a steal off Jacksons slow move to the plate, before Jackson finally retaliated by picking off Jay. Holliday handed the Cubs an unearned run in the third when he camped under Junior Lakes two-out high fly to medium left but then whiffed on the catch and DeJesus scored from first. The Cubs settled for their first series win in St. Louis since a three-game sweep Sept. 13-15, 2010. Theyd been 0-6-1 the previous seven series, and were trying for a three-game sweep. "You can take two out of three here its definitely a good thing," Barney said. "Its tough to win a series here. They play so well at home and Allen Craig is unbelievable with runners in scoring position." NOTES: Cardinals OF Carlos Beltran fouled a ball off his right foot in the fifth, got medical attention on the field and then struck out before leaving with a bruise. X-rays were negative and the Cardinals are hopeful he can return Tuesday against NL Central-leading Pittsburgh. "Its sore, no doubt its sore," Beltran said. "Hopefully Tuesday I can be back." ... Holliday grounded into his major league-leading 26th double play in the fifth. ... The Cubs Darnell McDonald walked pinch-hitting in the seventh in his first at-bat of the year. Hes the 50th player used by the Cubs, most in the majors. ... St. Louis last two wins have come in starts by Joe Kelly, who allowed three earned runs in 5 1-3 innings and Jackson gave up four runs in five innings. ... Castro has five hits the last two games and is batting .536 (15-for-28) the last seven games against St. Louis. ' ' '
MOSCOW -- At least 86 athletes from the 387-strong Russian Olympic team announced last week have so far been barred from the Rio Games in connection with the countrys doping scandal. Nick Van Exel Jersey .International federations in canoeing, sailing and modern pentathlon ruled out eight on Tuesday, including an Olympic gold medalist, following earlier rulings in swimming and rowing. Some appeals are likely.Russian President Vladimir Putins spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian media that Putin had discussed the doping issue with his national security council.The topic of the recent International Olympic Committee ruling relating to Russian athletes was raised ahead of Putins planned meeting tomorrow with the Russian Olympic team, Peskov was quoted as saying.The vast majority of the Russian athletes who miss out are in track and field, where 67 athletes were ruled out when a ban on the Russian team was upheld at the Court of Arbitration for Sport last week.More are falling foul of new rules imposed in the wake of the countrys doping scandal.While Russia avoided a blanket ban from the International Olympic Committee, it has lost several medal contenders to new IOC rules imposed Sunday banning Russia from entering athletes who previously doped.Alexander Dyachenko, an Olympic champion in 2012, was among five canoeists ruled out after being named in a recent report by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren alleging a state-sponsored doping cover-up.McLarens report last week specifically detailed how Russian state officials allegedly intervened to cover up hundreds of failed drug tests.Dyachenko won gold in the mens double kayak 200 meters at the 2012 London Games.The ICF will continue its strong zero-tolerance stance and remove all athletes that contravene its rules in anyway, said Simon Toulson, the International Canoe Federations general secretary. If you step out of line you wont make the start line.The four other banned canoeists are Alexei Korovashkov -- a 2012 bronze medalist in the C2 1,000 meters event -- Andrei Kraitor, Elena Anyushina and Nataliya Podolskaya.The ICF also said that Russia would not be allowed to enter boats in four events in which the excluded athletes would have raced. Therefore, Austria, Germany, Sweden and Iran are in line to receive their places.World Sailing said Pavel Sozykin, who had been due to race in the 470 class, would be excluded because he was mentioned in the McLaren report. Russias other six sailors were approve and Russia is able to nominate a replacement for Sozykin, the federation said.Meanwhile, the International Modern Pentathlon Union named the two Russians it had suspended as Maxim Kustov and Ilya Frolov, saying they both featured in the McLaren report. Kustovs place in the mens event passes to a Latvian athlete, while Frolov had only been entered for Rio as a reserve.Three Russian rowers have also been excluded. Ivan Podshivalov and Anastasia Karabelshchikova were excluded because they previously served doping bans, while Ivan Balandin from Russias mens eight was implicated in the McLaren report, World Rowing said.Meanwhile, volleyball player Alexander Markin told local media he had been dropped due to a positive test earlier this year for the banned substance meldonium, even though he had not been banned. The international volleyball federation did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The head of the Russian Wrestling Federation told the R-Sport agency that two-time world champion Viktor Lebedev was ineligible because he was given a doping ban in 2006.On Monday, swimmings world governing body FINA ruled out seven Russians including reigning world 100m breaststroke champion Yulia Efimova.Legal challenges are looming.Efimovas agent has said he is preparing an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, and the Russian Canoe Federations general secretary Irina Sirayeva said that the five banned athletes could follow suit.The intention to defend the athletes is there, she told R-Sport.Triple jumper Ekaterina Koneva -- a former world championship silver medalist -- told local media she was considering a lawsuit in civil court.There was good news for Russia as its judo and shooting teams -- comprised 11 and 18 athletes respectively -- received approval to compete from their sports international governing bodies.Also, Russia also looks set to field a full team of four players in Olympic badminton, the Russian Badminton Federation said Tuesday, citing assurances from the Badminton World Federation.Previously, archery, tennis and equestrian sports world governing bodies said they had no objection to the Russians entered in their sports.Lists of Russian athletes approved by international federations must still be approved by CAS arbiters who can reject athletes not tested outside Russia.The IOC refused to accept testing done by Russian agencies because of evidence that the process was corrupted. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Lakers Jersey .500 on the season.

Braves first base coach Terry Pendleton immediately signalled for help from the Marlins dugout as Morrison, who missed the first two months of the season recovering from right knee surgery, remained on the ground.
