LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Oregon and Connecticut were both in the Top 25 at the start of the season, but both could be out of the rankings next week.

They did not get down on themselves.Sophomore guard Jalen Adams nearly had a triple-double with 25 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds against Chaminade. He is averaging 29.5 points in two games during the tournament as he prepares to face the Ducks.We are definitely looking forward to playing a Top 20 team, Adams said. It is a good challenge to see where we are at. We think we can play with the best teams.Oregon and Connecticut were both disappointed after losing their opener in Maui, but the winner will go home with a two-game winning streak.Theyve got a good team, Ollie said of the Ducks. They havent been playing well as of late, but theyve got a lot of great guys. Weve got to come in and focus on our game plan.Oregon got all-conference forward Dillon Brooks back after he missed the first three games of the season following foot surgery.

Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. Wholesale Air Max Shoes . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. . Ryan Garbutt had a goal and two assists as Dallas snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. If this turns out to be Thomas Bachs defining moment, heres what the leader of the International Olympic Committee will be remembered for: keeping Russia as part of the club, but losing the trust of thousands of athletes who thought that, maybe this year, theyd get the answers theyve been looking for.In a way, the IOC and its president may have saved the Games As We Know Them, with their decision Sunday not to ban the entire Russian team from the Rio de Janeiro Games. No less than Russian President Vladimir Putin was making references to the potential fracturing of the Olympic movement if his country was kicked out completely.But the Games As We Know Them are now filled with wide-scale, unapologetic drug cheating, as was documented in a pair of independent reports that gave an unflinching look at a top-to-bottom doping program involving Russias government and trickling down to hundreds of the countrys athletes.The IOC ultimately favored individual justice over collective responsibility -- words Bach used repeatedly to describe the moral calculations of this first-of-its-kind judgment. And there were some legitimate arguments to be made about, say, the group of gymnasts or the dozens of clean athletes in any sport that shouldnt be kicked out because of the misdeeds of others.But, as Bach noted: This might not please everybody.Where to start?Maybe with those thousands of athletes who have tirelessly filled out whereabouts forms over the years, then allowed themselves to be woken in the dark of night, or met while out for dinner, by an agent tasked with collecting urine samples as part of the comprehensive out-of-competition-testing programs that exist in dozens of countries.Maybe with those whove been directly cheated out of medals by a Russian doper.Eight years of my life as a professional runner, and my entire professional career has been a farce, basically, American runner Alysia Montano said earlier this month, in tears after tripping and falling and failing to qualify for what wouldve been a chance to earn the Olympic medal that still hasnt come her way.While keeping the individual vs. collective argument at their disposal, IOC members also heard Sunday from Russian Olympic leader Alexander Zhukov, who urged them not to bow to geopolitical pressure andd issue the blanket ban. Air Max Shoes Wholesale China. Clearly, this decision had every bit as much to do with politics as clean sports.Its why the IOC ended up with a handful of actions that, frankly, do not live up to the standards of what world anti-doping rules are trying to achieve.- The IOCs call to bar from Rio any Russian athlete who had previously served an anti-doping ban runs counter to a 2011 decision that made it impermissible to do that very thing. The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that such a punishment amounted to double jeopardy. Zhukov said he didnt agree with the latest IOC ruling but that Russia would not appeal it. That doesnt mean individual athletes cannot. It has whiffs of a politically driven bargain.- The IOCs rejection of whistleblower Yulia Stepanovas request to compete under a neutral flag may have been academic, since Stepanova was injured and no sure thing to line up. Bach said the IOC considered the timing of Stepanovas information dump -- after shed been cast aside by the Russian team -- along with her record of doping. Still, the message it sends, is incomprehensible and will undoubtedly deter whistleblowers in the future from coming forward, said Travis Tygart, CEO of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.- The IOCs decision to let the 28 summer sports determine the eligibility of their athletes puts the federations in a nearly impossible situation. How, in 10 days, can any organization set reasonable parameters to determine whos been operating clean and who hasnt?But those calls, Bach and the IOC ruled, are for others to make.The one they did make keeps Russia engaged in the Olympics -- not an altogether surprising result, considering the country recently spent $51 billion on the Sochi Games, which have now been proven to be as drug-tainted and corrupt as any in history.Its a result that falls short of the toughest sanctions available, which is what Bach promised when the latest report on Russias doping scandal came out last Monday.A sad day for clean sport said Joseph de Pencier, CEO of the Institute for National Anti-Doping Organizations, which represents 59 agencies across the globe.But a happy day for Russia.

NASSAU, Bahamas -- A flop shot that required feel. Cheap Adidas Nmd Wholesale . A wedge to a back pin that he had to trust. Tiger Woods followed those two birdies with a perfect 6-iron that he wanted to be even better, urging it to move one yard ... one yard!The golf ball didnt listen. Television viewers did.And his three straight birdies after going 466 days without competition sure got everyones attention, even those who were playing.When I saw that he was 4 under through eight, I wanted to withdraw so I could go watch him, Russell Knox said.Was he back to being Tiger Woods?Of course not.This was only the front nine of the first round at the Hero World Challenge. By the end of the week, Woods was 15th out of 17 players . What returned was the excitement of having him inside the ropes again.Everybody loves the comeback story, Matt Kuchar said. A guy like Tiger, good or bad, draws attention. If its good, it gets really exciting.So hes back. And now hes gone again.Still to be determined is when he will play and how much. There has been chatter, and nothing more at this stage, of Woods playing in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship the third week in January. HSBC already has Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson, not to mention Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson, and might not want to break the bank. But a happy and healthy week for Woods in the Bahamas -- not to mention his 24 birdies -- certainly raised interest.Torrey Pines is a week later and a more likely start.Woods said in his heart of hearts he wants to play a full schedule. It will a different one, at least early.Riviera is back on the schedule because his foundation runs it. The Valspar Championship at Innisbrook is in play because its a week after one World Golf Championship and two weeks before another -- both in the month leading to the Masters. Woods isnt eligible for either WGC event and wont be unless he wins before then.That leads to the more critical question.When will it be time to stop marveling at seeing the red shirt and start judging him by red numbers on the scoreboard?Woods doesnt like any victory that doesnt come with a trophy, so he was quick to point out silly mistakes and six double bogeys whenever he caught himself getting too excited talking about his good golf. But he had reason to smile. Only the winner, Hideki Matsuyama, had as many sub-par holes. Woods shot 65 in the second round with no bogeys, not a tall order at Albany except that it was his first tournament in 15 months.This was a good week for him.His swing showed very little stress. It was graceful, not violent. Woods knows he isnt among the top power players anymore, though he showed ample length off the tee, even finding an extra gear on occasion. He said before the tournament he had all the shots, and there was little evidence to suggest otherwise.He just didnt score very well. But only those wanting to see him fail cared about that after such a long layoff.That will change over time. Theres just no consensus on when.Give him three or four tournaments, maybe six tournaments, maybe around the Masters, Henrik Stenson said. Probably give him a number of tournaments and he might be in contention in one of the early ones next year. Then you know you have the answer quicker. Its easy to overanalyze a very limited amount of golf.Kuchar said he has low expectations of Woods in the Bahamas, and was impressed to see him start 73-65-70.I still dont hold him to any standard just yet, he said. Hes kind of a new man. Great to see. Shoot, he gets back in the hunt and wins a tournament, youd have to put those expectations right back on him. For having nearly two years off, its hard to hold a guy to his typical expectation level.Brandt Snedeker was curious to see how much progress Woods makes in his next tournament. Others, like Jordan Spieth and Zach Johnson, had a longer view when it came to measuring Woods by his scores.To me, its if we can chat next year at this point, Johnson said. Its not so much the golf game and the golf swing and the putts being holed and contention. Its physically. Can he withstand a Tiger year, which is what, 15 to 20 events?Curiosity has given way to anticipation. Doubts have been replaced by optimism.Reality is still months away, if not longer. Cheap Adidas Nmd Shoes For Sale .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. Cheap Addias Nmd . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said Julio Jones is capable of reaching an NFL-record 2,000 receiving yards in a season, and while Jones agreed, he said his primary focus is on winning.I can, but Im going to do what helps the team win, Jones told If thats me getting 2,000 on the way to being a great teammate, lets do it. But if its not required for me to win games, hey, Im all about winning.Jones posted the second-highest single-season receiving total in NFL history last season with 1,871 receiving yards on 136 catches. Former Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson holds the league record with 1,964 yards on 122 catches set in 2012.Can he do it? Absolutely he can. Is it a good thing? If weve won 16 games, its a great thing, Ryan said. Julio will tell you the same thing. If its going to help us win, hell yeah its a good thing. It depends on wins. At the end of the day, thats all thats important.The Falcons, who failed to make the playoffs the past three years, intend to take more deep shots this season, which could result in more big-pplay opportunities for Jones. Adidas Nmd Cheap China. At the same time, defenses are certain to plan for the game to stop him. But those defenses might not be able to key on Jones as much if Ryan gets more production out of other targets such as newcomer Mohamed Sanu, second-year receiver Justin Hardy, veteran tight end Jacob Tamme?and rookie Austin Hooper.Not to mention a successful running game behind the combination of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman could open up more play-action opportunities, allowing Ryan to throw deep to Jones more often. Last season, Jones was targeted 15 times on throws of 25-plus air yards down the field and had six receptions for 270 yards with one touchdown.Jones, who amassed 642 yards after the catch a year ago, had nine games of 100-plus receiving yards in 2015, including a season-high 178 in a 20-13 upset of the 14-0 Panthers. Hell face at least three top-notch pass defenses this season with Carolina, Denver and Seattle.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Cheap Air Vapormax . -- The No. 16 Auburn soccer team reached new heights when it defeated No. 9 Florida in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 on Sunday afternoon, 3-1. The Tigers (17-6-0) advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history and also set a new record for most wins in a single season with the victory.First, congratulations to Florida, said head coach Karen Hoppa. Theyre a tremendous team, the SEC Tournament champions, and obviously played a great game.Im incredibly proud of our team. I thought we did not play particularly well in the first half. We fought hard and defended well, but we didnt play soccer the way we wanted to and to go into halftime up - credit to Brooke [Ramsier] to get a goal against the run of play - I was really proud of the team and the adjustments they made in the second half.Kristen Dodson, Bri Folds and Brooke Ramsier each notched a goal in the 90-minute affair to guide the offense. Sarah Le Beau went the distance between the posts and made six saves.Playing in front of a raucous crowd of 1,152, Auburn had a shaky start out of the gate. The Gators (17-5-1) put in a pair of dangerous efforts in the opening 20 minutes, drawing one Le Beau save, and controlled the possession early on.However, a counter-attack in the 25th minute changed the whole complexion of the match.A ball that found the feet of Dodson was then pushed forward into a danger area, but the three surrounding defenders were able to get a foot on it.The ball, however, ricocheted off a defender and dropped to the feet of Ramsier. The Dallas, Texas native then blasted a volley from 20 yards away to the far-post corner and found the back of the net.The goal marked Ramsiers second of the weekend and was the 16th point shes secured in her last seven matches.Auburn maintained a 1-0 lead into the locker room and had only one shot - Ramsiers rocket.The Tigers roared out of the break after tallying a pair of shots and drawing a corner in the opening two minutes of the second half, but were held in check.In the 62nd minute, Dodson took a feed over the top of the defense and drew a hard foul in the box that flipped the match heavily in favor of Auburn. The Florida defender was issued a red card and a penalty was given.Folds then calmly took her first career penalty and fired it into the back of the net to double Auburns lead to 2-0.Just 53 seconds later and down a player, the Gators responded by scoring a goal and cutting the margin in half at 2-1.After a plethora of chances for both squads, Dodson put the match away in the 84th minute.The junior picked off a pass from Florida and took on three defenders at midfield. Dodson then saw the goalkeeper was off her line and chipped it up and over the final line of defense from 35 yards away to seal the victory.The Tigers remained compact in the final five minutes and closed out the program-defining win, sending Auburn to its first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals.Making it to the Elite Eight with this group is incredible, stated Ramsier. Credit to all of us because theyre such a bond this team has and it really is a family. We fight for each other. We go out there and play 90 minutes for each and every girl on and off the field. Its just a crazy feeling and were so happy.Auburn earned its second win in Gainesville this season after topping the Gators 3-0 back in September. In both matches, the Tigers defense held strong, limiting Florida to their lowest two goal-outputs of the season.We just stick together and support each other if we get beat, stated senior defender Kiana Clarke. We cover for each other and pick up after another. We know we have each other to depend on and I think thats a big part of our success today.Auburn makes its historic debut in the NCAA Quarterfinals on Friday when it travels to No. 3 USC. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. Cheap Nike Air Vapormax Plus Sale . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. Cheap Air Vapormax From China . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee? Green had bounced around the NBA when he wasnt playing overseas. The Pacers gave up on Plumlee after just one season. Now Green and Plumlee are key cogs in the Suns surprising breakout season. . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Stacy Lewis made 11 birdies on Thursday to match the low score at Olympic Golf Course with an 8-under 63, putting her right in the mix for a gold medal in womens golf.The American had no complaints about her golf or her position at the halfway point of the first Olympic womens golf competition since 1900. Lewis was one shot behind Inbee Park of South Korea, who birdied her last two holes for another 5-under 66 and the 36-hole lead.Charley Hull kept alive British hopes for a gold medal sweep in golf with a 66 that left her two shots behind Park.Lewis piled up the birdies, finishing with four in a row, the last one the most unlikely. Her tee shot on the par-5 18th failed by a foot to clear a bunker, and the ball stayed on the steep slope of soft sand.I would have taken par and ran to the clubhouse, Lewis said.Instead, she hit one of her best shots with a 7-iron to advance it down the fairway, and then did even better with a hybrid from 199 yards to 4 feet for her 63.I was just trying to get a third shot after that lie in the bunker, Lewis said. I hit the shot of the week there.As well as a low score, Lewis had red shoulders by the end of a sunny day. She always wears short sleeves, but her Team USA uniform didnt fit.Her only option was to go with the sleeveless version, which showed off shoulders that never get any sun.She still had a patriotic look, walking to the first tee with a blue shirt and white shoulders that turned red by the end of a sunny day.Marcus Fraser of Australia also shot a 63 in the opening round of the mens competition last week on a course set up about 900 yards longer.Lewis had no idea how many birdies she made or even how low she had shot until signing her card. All that mattered was a chance to win gold in what she considers the biggest week of her year -- next to her marriage Aug. 6 to Houston womens golf coach Gerrod Caldwell.A former No. 1 in the world, Lewis has gone more than two years siince her last victory. Cheap Nike Air Vapormax Plus. She was irritated with her swing during the opening round and even after her practice session Thursday morning. Seeing a lot of putts go in can change everything.But it was her one bad hole that enabled Lewis to finish so well. Tied for the lead after a birdie on the 13th, she hit 4-iron into the bunker on the par-3 14th and blasted out weakly to 25 feet. After seeing so many putts go in, she charged her par putt about 4 feet by the hole and missed that one, taking double bogey.I was a little bit mad after the double on 14 and got my focus back instead of going the other way, she said.She birdied the next two holes, then converted a 25-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the 17th and finished with her best birdie of the round.Park made her first bogey of the tournament on No. 7, but that was the only green she missed. She missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole, and then converted birdies on the last two to reach 10-under 132. She figures to be a big part of the final two rounds the way she has kept the ball in play.Im going to try to keep calm as much as I can, she said. Im confident with everything, but I dont want to put too much pressure on myself.Hull didnt arrive in Rio until Sunday night and wasnt at the golf course when Justin Rose won golfs first Olympic gold since 1904 with a birdie on the final hole to defeat British Open champion Henrik Stenson.Lagging behind was Lydia Ko, the No. 1 player in the world and the favorite coming into the week. She could only muster a 70 and was seven shots out of the lead. Ariya Jutanugarn, who led after the opening round, was playing with Lewis and couldnt keep up. She shot a 72 and fell five shots out of the lead.The surprise was Aditi Ashok, the 18-year-old from India who had another 68 and was four shots out of the lead.

On a cultural level, Australia has been forced to confront the harsh reality of a federal politician called Pauline Hanson, who has touched a raw nerve by questioning what it means for migrants to embrace Australian values. Nike MLB Jerseys China . No one is quite sure what these values are meant to be, who drew up the list of these values, and how far back in time you have to go to determine the source of these values, but Hanson has done what she set out to do - embroil the nation in a testy debate around notions of inclusivity and diversity as it applies to her monocultural frame of reference.Much of the focus of her wrath is seemingly directed at ethnic and religious migrants from Asia and the Middle East. For many of those who may feel the sting of her words, cricket is their sport, their passion, their sense of cultural identity. Having had the privilege of being on both sides of the fence - first as a migrant in 1984 and now as a long-time resident, with children born in this land (weaned on cricket), and working as an educator in the field of diversity and inclusion, I believe firmly that cricket represents a bridge that can span the chasm between Hansons rhetoric and the history of a nation built on migration.That Cricket Australia promotes a culture that is wholly inclusive is not in doubt. I have personally witnessed their commitment to making the sport accessible to all. It is not lip service but a genuine recognition of cricket as a truly global sport that is richer for the broad church it draws from. It may yet be another generation before the proliferation of South Asian names seen in junior cricket scorecards is reflected in senior Australian teams but most of that is beyond CAs influence at this early point in time.For instance, at the national championships that my 12-year-old son participated in recently, most of the state teams had significant representation from boys with subcontinental heritage. Yet in the Under-17, U-19 and rookie squads I work with, the numbers have thinned out noticeably. This has very little to do with discrimination and everything to do with the traditional focus on higher education that many South Asian families still demand of their children. It may yet be some time before cricket is viewed as an equally attractive and viable career option for a subset of the population for whom higher education is still the holy grail.I felt that pressure in the late 1980s when I pursued a modest cricket career, and it was only the luck of a cricket scholarship to Oxford that appeased my parents sufficiently to allow me to chase that futile dream for a few more years. But inclusivity at grass-roots level runs a lot deeper than merely playing the game. It is about finding ways to encourage people from all backgrounds to be an active part of club culture. Until that happens seamlessly, there will always be the perception that gives rise to Hansonism - this ridiculous notion that if you dont share her version of Australian values, you dont belong. Its plain to see why the smallest oversights can lead to the perception that some cultures/religions do not want to assimilate, and the barriers to entry can easily be removed with nothing more than enhanced cross-cultural understanding on both sides of the fence.For example, many cricket clubs wonder why some cricketers or their families are reluctant to volunteer for simple things like running the canteen. It might not have occurred to them that they never actually invited that person to step behind the counter. If youre a second-generation club member, like my sons are, they see no impediment to volunteering for any role, but when I posed the same question to my father, he confessed that while he felt like he should have offered to help, no one actually asked him, so he did not want to force himself on people whom he did not know.It could be as simple as the Aussie staple of ham and salad rolls or hot dogs being on the menu. For some, handling certain types of meat is not an option. Serving alcohol might present a similar obstacle to volunteering in such roles. How many clubs (and Ive seen this occur in England too a thousand times) serve food that has pork or beef products and then look suspiciously at that one person who distances himself from the group and looks like he is not mixing in with his team-mates? In similar vein, Ive played cricket in India and Sri Lanka where similar situations occur in reverse - the volunteer caterer may just have forgotten to include a type of food that is non-spicy. Nothing sinister - just an oversight that leads to false perceptions that fuel the sort of myths that Hanson then makes sweeping generalisations about.Then theres dressing-room etiquette. In all my time playing cricket in Australia and England, it was standard practice for males to get changed and shower alongside each other without being self-conscious about nudity. It never occurred to those cricketers that there may be others who feel uncomfortable with that. It has nothing to do with being gay or being unhygienic (Have you noticed he never showers after a game?). And yet, those minor misunderstandings can lead to self-fulfilling prophecies that stand in the way of true inclusivity.I am now in South Africa, a proud cricketing nation that is dealing with the equally thorny issues around quotas, inclusion and opportunity. We have Pauline Hanson. South Africa had Nelson Mandela: Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination. Authentic Nike Soccer Jerseys . Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz.

Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. An offseason of high expectations for Washington ends Saturday when the No. 14 Huskies host Rutgers, which will be playing its first game under coach Chris Ash.Ash spent the past two seasons as the co-defensive coordinator at Ohio State, helping the Buckeyes win the national championship in 2014. He also coordinated defenses at Arkansas and Wisconsin.Meanwhile, much of the optimism around Washington centers on third-year coach Chris Petersen, who is only 15-12 in two seasons with the Huskies but had a long run of success at Boise State before that.He seems to have Washington on the cusp of big things, returning eight starters from a defense that ranked as the best in the Pac-12 last year, allowing only 351.8 yards a game.The offense should launch behind sophomore quarterback Jake Browning, who passed for 2,955 yards while starting 12 games as a true freshman, and sophomore running back Myles Gaskin, who rushed for 1,302 yards and 14 touchdowns as a true freshman.Browning threw 16 touchdown passes and was intercepted 10 times in an offense that usually moved at a deliberate pace.From this year at this time, to last year, there is a big difference, Petersen said about Browning.He knows everything were talking about with quite certainty. ... One thing were really trying to stress with him is lets still try and keep it simple. Its still one-two throw, or run for your life. Sometimes you can make this game too complicated.Rutgers, which went 4-8 last season and had off-field issues that led to the dismissal of coach Kyle Flood, will enter Husky Stadium as a big underdog.Were ready to go and just really excited to find out where werre at as a program, Ash said. Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys. One of the first things Ash had to do was settle on a quarterback. Chris Laviano got the nod over three others. He completed 60.9 percent of his passes last season -- the highest Rutgers percentage since 2008 -- but he no longer has receiver Leonte Carroo as a target. Carroo was a third-round pick of the Miami Dolphins.Rutgers will be facing a defense that returns two first-team All-Pac-12 defensive backs.Junior safety Budda Baker has started 24 of 25 games in his career and is a potential All-American. Junior cornerback Sidney Jones led the conference last season with 14 pass break-ups. He intercepted four passes and forced three fumbles.Washington allowed only 11 touchdown passes, which was the lowest figure in the Pac-12.Throw in other talented players such as linebacker Azeem Victor, and 300-pound-plus defensive linemen Elijah Qualls and Greg Gaines, and you can see why Washington is a preseason top 15 team after going 7-6 last season.Washington begins the season with three homes games -- Idaho and FCS Portland State follow -- before conference play begins at Arizona on Sept. 24.A lot of uncertainty, Petersen said about an opener against a team with a new coaching staff.Youre watching tapes of where they came from, but then they are going to have their own ideas that are tailored to their personnel. So thats probably the biggest challenge. ... And I think the second thing is theyll have new energy.This is the first meeting between Rutgers and Washington.

World No 3 McIlroy is expected to represent Ireland in Brazil as golf returns to the Olympic schedule for the first time since 1904.However, last month McIlroy revealed that he still had concerns over competing - citing the ongoing Zika epidemic as a potential deterrent. The 27-year-old recently became engaged to fiance Erica Stoll and was considering withdrawing from the competition as the Zika virus has been linked to birth defects in new-born babies.Former Masters and US PGA champion Vijay Singh and Australian golfer Marc Leishman have already signalled their intention to miss the games. McIlroy is set to represent Ireland at the Olympics But McIlroy now looks set to compete after having his concerns eased by health professionals. Ive sought out some advice and I had two dead shoulders for about four days last week because I got my shots and whatever I needed to get for going down there, McIlroy told a press conference on Wednesday.Obviously, theres no vaccination for Zika. I think what the health experts are really worried about, its not the individual cases. Fijian Vijay Singh has signalled his intention to miss the games due to the virus Its the fact that 500,000 people go to Rio and they spend three weeks at the Games, they go back out of Rio and some might have contracted Zika and dont know about it, and then all of a sudden instead of it being this virus thats contained in a certain part of the world, its now a global epidemic. Wholesale Air Max Shoes Sale. .And I think thats the real concern. So for me to go down there, even if I was to get Zika, its six months and its a virus and it works its way out of your system.And its nice that we can come back, and [if you] feel like youve had some of the symptoms down there, you can get tested for it, and its either a yes or a no youve had it. Masters champion Danny Willett is yet to decide on his participation in Brazil Im ready to play. I feel like the advice Ive sought out over the past 10 days has put my mind at ease and makes me more comfortable going down there knowing that, even if I do contract Zika, its not the end of the world.It takes six months to pass through your system and youre fine.

India coach Anil Kumble has said he is looking to cultivate a feeling of Indianness in the team. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys Authentic . That, he said, would involve incorporating the best practices in Indian culture into the way the players play and interact with each other.It is important we create an Indian way, Kumble told Hindustan Times. I dont mean to say sledging is not Indian culture or is somebody elses culture. What I meant is, you would want to bring a feeling of Indianness - that is, extended family, respect for one another.Take all the best practices in Indian culture, mesh them in a way that all of us own what we want to be seen as, known as, how do we want to play the game, how do we want to practice, how do we want to be seen as an Indian team.The best practices in the Indian family would be, generally, follow whatever elders say, but here we want to be a bit more open and express our views even if they differ from that of the seniors. Here it is having family values and say, if a senior has taken a decision, I will follow it. However, you should also have the freedom to disagree but in a more civilised way, where everyone has the opportunity to express himself.India left for the tour of the West Indies earlier this week, following a five-day training camp in Bangalore. Kumble said he was pleasantly surprised by the players receptiveness to new ideas during that camp.This group is very open to ideas and, I must confess, given the current generation and the way they are perceived, I thought getting them into a room for an hour or so and seriously discussing certain issues would not be easy and after ten minutes or so, they wont be listening or responding. But I was surprised to see that not only were they very receptive and embraced new ideas, but we spent more time than what was stipulated.

NEW YORK -- NBC set up Friday as duel night between the United States and Jamaica in the sprint relays, and what started out well ended up in heartbreak for the Americans. Wholesale Jerseys NBA Online .The American women were working on a second chance in the 4x100-meter relay. Bumped off course in a heat Thursday, they were given another opportunity to qualify by running against a clock. They succeeded, but heard whispers that they didnt deserve that chance.I think they will come out with a lot of attitude, NBC analyst Ato Boldon predicted.He was right, and the U.S. team defended its gold medal with relative ease. Jamaica came in second.Before the men took the track, NBC aired a creative and prescient prepared report, handing the four American sprinters tablets to see video of flubs that had ruined previous races.Unfortunately, weve come to be defined by failure, said the teams coach, Dennis Mitchell.As they will again. Viewers knew it wasnt meant to be when the U.S. began the final lap essentially even with Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt, the worlds fastest man who was attempting to win his ninth gold medal. Nobody would catch him. Japan snuck in for the silver medal and the U.S. thought it earned bronze, but even that slipped from their grasp when they were disqualified for a faulty pass of the baton.HOLD ON: The admonition not to call a race over before it actually is should be the first thing track announcers learn, but NBCs Tim Hutchings apparently wasnt listening that day. About five minutes before the womens 5,000-meter race ended and with Ethiopias Almaz Ayana way ahead, Hutchings referenced the pack of runners behind her and said, its a difficult mindset to adopt, to realize that the gold medal is gone and youre racing for silver. Not so fast. Ayana faded and Kenyan teammates Vivian Cheruiyot and Hilla Onsando Obiri passed her.CLUELESS: Now that weve reached the point of memorizing most of the Olympic commercials, we feel safe offering our nomination for the most annoying. Its those General Electric ads with the clueless younger brother visiting his sister at work. Theyre painfully unfunny, and were at a loss to see how it makes viewers think good thoughts about the company.ARLO TIME: Done right, theres something lyrical about calling a soccer game, isnt there? Its a corner kick for Sweden in the dying embers of the game, said NBCs Arlo White as the minutes ticked away in Germanys 2-1 gold medal victory over Sweden in womens Olympic soccer on Friday. Sweet.VOLLEYBALL: Nice camera work in the US-Italy mens volleyball match showing three Americans laying themselves out simultaneously for the ball. It looked like some kind of coordinated diving exercise, NBC analyst Kevin Barnett said.RATINGS: Bolts gold-medal run on Thursday lifted NBCs ratings in the dying embers of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The Nielsen company said 21.7 million people watched the telecast. Adding in cable and streaming viewers, and NBC had 22.9 million people watching during the time slot.

Now tied for second in the league in shootout goals, the 24-year-old likes to see what the opposing goaltender has in store before he ultimately lands on a move. . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. Pass me an oxygen tank -- and a pillow.After the greatest opening weekend in college football history, I need a vacation from my vacation. Labor Day turned out to be pretty laborious for The Eliminator.Following four days of incredible upsets, thrilling finishes, memorable debuts and more than a handful of epic comebacks, I need a week to catch my breath and get some rest. On paper, Week 2 doesnt figure to be as unpredictable. But isnt that what we always say about the weekends that end up being the craziest?The opening weekend wasnt nearly as enjoyable for a handful of teams from the Power 5 conferences. Washington State, Iowa State and Virginia all fell to FCS foes.?It also wasnt a strong opening weekend for the SEC - considered by many to be the sports best conference. SEC teams lost to opponents from Conference USA and the Sun Belt, and SEC East favorite Tennessee needed overtime to beat Appalachian State. Overall, SEC teams went 7-7 in their openers.SEC members Kentucky and Mississippi State were among the 29 teams eliminated from consideration for the College Football Playoff by The Eliminator, which is narrowing the 128-team FBS field to the four spots for the playoff.Heres where the FBS stands after Week 1:Jump to Sections: Whos In | Still In Contention | On The Fence | Better Luck Next SeasonWhos inIf the opening weekend is any indication, its going to be a wild race for the College Football Playoff. Seven ranked teams lost in the first week -- the most to fall in their openers in AP Top 25 history. Defending national champion Alabama was among the few teams that actually looked dominant in its opener. The Crimson Tide blasted USC 52-6 in Arlington, Texas, which was the Trojans worst opening loss in program history. As a result, the Crimson Tide get the No. 1 seed. Florida State earned the No. 2 seed after rallying from a 22-point deficit to beat Ole Miss 45-34 in Orlando, Florida, on Monday night. It was the largest comeback in FSU history. Ohio State is the No. 3 seed after blasting Bowling Green 77-10. I could have easily gone with Michigan, which routed Hawaii 63-3 in its opener, but Ill give the edge to the Buckeyes because of quarterback J.T. Barrett. Finally, Houston is the No. 4 seed after upsetting Oklahoma 33-23 on Saturday. The Cougars looked as good as anybody in the opening week.Still in contentionAlabama Crimson Tide Trending: UPThe Lane Kiffin Revenge Tour continued with a 52-6 trouncing of USC. The best part for Alabamas offensive coordinator: He beat the Trojans with freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts after persuading head coach Nick Saban to let him play.Baylor Bears Trending: EVENBears quarterback Seth Russell returned from a neck injury with aplomb, throwing for 163 yards and four touchdowns in less than a half in a 55-7 win over FCS member Northwestern State on Friday night.Clemson Tigers Trending: EVENClemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said he watched YouTube videos to figure out how to slow down Auburns Wing-T offense. He needed a Twister board to figure out Auburns quarterback rotation.Florida State Seminoles Trending: UPThe Comeback Kings pulled off another miracle on Monday night against Ole Miss, rallying from a 22-point deficit to stun the Rebels 45-34. Since 2013, the Seminoles are 6-1 in games in which they trailed by at least seven points at the half.Georgia Bulldogs Trending: EVENIts a medical miracle that 1980 Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker was able to donate knee ligaments to both Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb.Houston Cougars Trending: UPGamblers must love Houston coach Tom Herman. During his tenure, the Cougars have been an underdog four times. Theyve won each time -- the past three by double digits, including Saturdays 33-23 stunner over Oklahoma.Iowa Hawkeyes Trending: EVENThe Hawkeyes rushed for five touchdowns in a 45-21 win over Miami (Ohio), their fifth game with five or more rushing scores since the start of last season.Louisville Cardinals Trending: UPThe Cardinals play at Syracuse on Friday night, their last test before a Sept. 17 showdown against Florida State. As ESPNs Brent Musburger reminded us all this past weekend, Bobby Petrino is a really good coach.Michigan Wolverines Trending: UPMichigans 60-point win over Hawaii was its largest in an opener since the value of a touchdown was changed to six points in 1912. The last time the Wolverines won an opener by a more lopsided score was a 65-0 victory over Ohio Wesleyan in 1905.Michigan State Spartans Trending: DOWNThe Spartans are lucky people were still talking on Friday night about how bad Tennessee looked the night before. Michigan State didnt look much better in an ugly 28-13 victory over FCS member Furman.Ohio State Buckeyes Trending: UPIs Urban Meyer competing with Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh to see whose team can score the most points every Saturday? The Buckeyes racked up 77 points against Bowling Green in their opener, their highest scoring total since putting up 83 against Iowa in 1950.Oklahoma State Cowboys Trending: EVENBillionaire OSU booster T. Boone Pickens didnt exactly give coach Mike Gundy a ringing endorsement before a 61-7 win over FCS foe Southeastern Louisiana in Saturdays opener. Pickens told reporters: I would like to beat OU. Mike has struggled with that game. I think hes 2-9, so were not competitive with OU. Best of luck this season, Coach Gundy.Stanford Cardinal Trending: EVENCardinal coach David Shaw?might have been the only one not impressed by star Christian McCaffreys 97-yard punt return for a touchdown, which was erased by a penalty in Friday nights 26-13 win over Kansas State. Theres a reason why there are no 97-yard punt returns, because you should not catch the ball at the 3-yard line, Shaw said. [McCaffrey] knows that.Texas Longhorns Trending: UPWe knew Texas would be running a version of Baylors offense this season after hiring Art Briles disciple Sterlin Gilbert as its offensive coordinator. Hopefully, the Longhorns wont keep playing like the Bears on defense, too.Texas A&M Aggies Trending: UPTexas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin might be on the hot seat this season, but Saturdays 31-24 upset of UCLA in overtime was his 10th win over an AP Top-25 team, which tied him with Jackie Sherrill for second in school history. Only R.C. Slocum (17) beat more ranked foes as the Aggies coach.Washington Huskies Trending: EVENWelcome back, Huskies wide receiver John Ross. After missing all of the 2015 season with a knee injury, Ross caught 5 passes for 90 yards and 2 touchdowns; he also scored on a 92-yard kickoff return in a 48-13 rout of Rutgers.Wisconsin Badgers Trending: UPAfter stunning No. 5 LSU 16-14 at Lambeau Field on Saturday, the Badgers have earned their place among the early playoff contenders. They wont face an easy road, however. After hosting Akron and Georgia State, Wisconsin opens Big Ten play against Michigan State (road), Michigan (road), Ohio State (home) and Iowa (road).On the fenceAir Force Falcons Trending: EVENThe Falcons beat FCS foe 37-21 in their opener -- one of three victories by the service academies. This is just the second time in the 21st century they each started 1-0 (2013 was the other).Akron Zips Trending: EVENCongrats, Zips. Its a little early to crown you MAC East champions, but you were the only team in the division not to lose its opener.Arizona Wildcats Trending: DOWNArizona coach Rich Rodriguez said he nearly pulled quarterback Anu Solomon from the Wildcats 18-16 loss to BYU. Well see whether Solomon, who threw two interceptions and was sacked four times, or sophomore Brandon Dawkins starts this week against Grambling.Arizona State Sun Devils Trending: EVENThe Sun Devils allowed 369 passing yards in a 44-13 win over FCS foe Northern Arizona. Thats not a good sign with Texas Tech coming to town on Saturday.Arkansas Razorbacks Trending: DOWNThe Hogs only had 297 yards of offense in a 21-20 win over Louisiana Tech.

But the Tigers are stout on defense, which might have to score to win games.Ball State Cardinals Trending: EVENAfter beating Georgia State 31-21 on the road in their opener, the Cardinals play at Indiana on Saturday. Ball State hasnt beaten a Power 5 opponent since knocking off Virginia in 2013.Boise State Broncos Trending: EVENThe Broncos won 45-10 at Louisiana-Lafayette, their first true road win in an opener since 2000.Boston College Eagles Trending: DOWNThe Eagles opened the season against Georgia Tech in Dublin, Ireland, where their ACC losing streak reached nine straight games after a 17-14 loss.BYU Cougars Trending: UPWelcome back, BYU quarterback Taysom Hill, who passed for 202 yards with one touchdown against Arizona. Hill missed most of last season with a foot injury.California Golden Bears Trending: EVENAfter beating Hawaii by 20 points in Australia more than two weeks ago, the Bears road is about to get difficult. They play at San Diego State on Saturday, then host Texas and play at Arizona State.Cincinnati Bearcats Trending: DOWNThe Bearcats trailed FCS member Tennessee-Martin 7-6 at halftime of their opener before pulling away for a 28-7 victory. Im sure that left a great impression on the Big 12.Central Michigan Chippewas Trending: EVENThe Chippewas defeated Presbyterian 49-3 in their opener. It figures to be a little more difficult in Saturdays trip to Oklahoma State.Colorado Buffaloes Trending: UPOur preseason projections might have missed the mark on the Buffaloes, who looked absolutely dominant in their 44-7 rout of Colorado State. Well know more by the end of the month -- after the Buffaloes have played at Michigan and Oregon.Connecticut Huskies Trending: DOWNThe Huskies needed 10 fourth-quarter points to escape with a 24-21 win over FCS foe Maine on Thursday night.Duke Blue Devils Trending: EVENThe Blue Devils overcame five fumbles in a 49-6 win over FCS member North Carolina Central on Saturday.East Carolina Pirates Trending: EVENEast rules! Minnesota transfer Phillip Nelson threw for five touchdowns and ran for another in a 52-7 rout of FCS member Western Carolina in ECU coach Scottie Montgomerys debut.Eastern Michigan Eagles Trending: EVENIm sure glad I turned over the Bottom 10 to ESPN colleague Ryan McGee. All three Michigan directional schools are 1-0; the Eagles defeated FCS foe Missouri Valley State 61-14 in their opener.Florida Gators Trending: DOWNYou dont honor the Head Ball Coach by scoring 10 points in the first three quarters against UMass. You preserve that clunker for when Charlie Weis comes back to town.Florida Atlantic Owls Trending: EVENI wonder if Florida fans will cheer for Owls quarterback Jason Driskel (Jeffs brother) to upset Miami this week.Georgia Southern Eagles Trending: EVENThe Eagles opened the Tyson Summers era by rushing for 420 yards in a 54-0 rout of FCS member Savannah State.Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Trending: EVENGeorgia Techs 17-14 win over Boston College in Dublin was the first time the Yellow Jackets played outside the U.S. in the 124-year history of the program.

Their next two games are at Washington and Washington State.Illinois Fighting Illini Trending: EVENLovie Ball!

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Georgetown was at its best in the first half, playing aggressive defense, feeding the hot hand of Rodney Pryor. Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic .The Hoyas were at their worst to start the second half, failing stops or shots to drop.Rather than folding, as they had in the past, the Hoyas gritted out a victory over a tough opponent.Pryor had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and Georgetown withstood a furious second-half rally to hold on for a 65-61 victory over No. 13 Oregon on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational.In the second half they came out and threw some blows, said Pryor, who had 18 points by halftime. We didnt get early stops that we needed and they got back into the game. But then we were able to take a deep breath, get some stops and get some baskets.Georgetown (1-2) led by 17 after a superb first half, capped by Pryors running 3-pointer at the buzzer. The Ducks (2-2) swarmed their way back, using pressure defense to create turnovers and easy baskets in transition.Unlike their loss to Maryland last week, the Hoyas weathered the Duck storm and will advance to the second round against No. 16 Wisconsin.LJ Peak added 17 points and hit two free throws with 2.7 seconds left to seal Georgetowns victory.Our guys did a good job not getting dejected and refocusing, Hoyas coach John Thompson III said.Oregon struggled the entire first half despite having leader Dillon Brooks in the lineup for the first time this season. The Ducks clawed their way back behind pressure defense, though didnt have enough to finish it off.Payton Pritchard led Oregon with 18 points. Brooks had eight points, including a long 3-pointer with 3.8 seconds left to get the Ducks within 2.As great a comeback as it was, we werent tough enough to finish it, Oregon coach Dana Altman said.Brooks didnt play in Oregons first three games while recovering from offseason foot surgery and Altman said he would limit the preseason All-Americans minutes in Maui.Brooks entered Mondays game about five minutes in with the Ducks struggling.He didnt do much to help them.Oregon needed six minutes to hit its first field goal and kept missing shots, going 7 for 29 from the floor in the first half. Brooks was 0 for 3 and did not score.The Hoyas had their own problems early, but rallied behind Pryor. He hit two step-back 3-pointers late in the first half and closed it with a running, off-balance 3 at the buzzer to put Georgetown up 38-21.Give them credit. They came out fast and we made some mistakes at the start of the game, so we have to limit those, Oregon guard Casey Benson said.Second half, roles reversed.After solving Oregons extended pressure defense in the first half, the Hoyas couldnt shake it in the second.Georgetown missed its first 12 shots and the Ducks went on a 22-4 run to go up by one.Georgetown fought back, turning up its defensive pressure and used a 10-2 run to go up 53-45 with 3 minutes leftOregon tried to make a late run, but came up short.BIG PICTUREThe Hoyas showed off their inconsistencies in yet another game, but found a win to win this one after losing the previous two.The Ducks got their leader back, but still have plenty of work to do if theyre going to live up to the high preseason expectations. Perimeter shooting is a concern; Oregon went 4 for 17 from the 3-point arc after hitting 3 of 21 in a loss to Baylor.POLL IMPLICATIONSDepending on what happens the next two days in Maui, the Ducks could be looking at a precipitous fall in the poll, possibly even out of it altogether.BROOKS RETURNAltman stuck to his plan to limited Brooks minutes, only giving him 13 against the Hoyas. Brooks was superb on the defensive end, particularly on the press in the second half, and finishing 3 of 8 shooting.We held him to the 10 to 15 minutes that we thought wed play him, Altman said. And he was mad because he wanted to play more.UP NEXTGeorgetown will face No. 16 Wisconsin in Tuesdays winners bracket.Oregon faces Tennessee in the losers bracket on Tuesday. Nike NBA Jerseys From China . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. Nike NBA Jerseys Autographed . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge. . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Its time for our annual search for what some team executives used to call the next DeMarre Carroll -- guys with NBA track records so limited, smart teams might be able to swipe them on the cheap.Our list last year included Bismack Biyombo, Mirza Teletovic, Ed Davis, Cory Joseph, Will Barton, Derrick Williams, Jonas Jerebko and some other success stories, plus some semi-busts such as Kyle OQuinn.The unprecedented $20 million-plus leap in the salary cap ahead of next season makes the scavenger hunt tougher. There are not enough quality free agents to soak up the money; some teams will splurge on a no-names just to hit the minimum salary floor, or punt the floor altogether. Tested veterans such as D.J. Augustin will not be sitting there waiting for minimum contracts.Guys entering free agency today with resumes equivalent to what Biyombo, Davis and Teletovic carried a year ago are going to get paid a ton. There is no point in putting Kent Bazemore, Allen Crabbe, Ian Mahinmi or Jerebko (if Boston lets him walk) on this list; those guys are going to bank $10 million per season or, in at least Bazemores case, much more.You have to dig deeper to find a real bargain, which means your chances of hitting go down. These are worse players, and some of them will bank crazy one- and two-year deals from teams desperate to unload cash on any leftover free agent with potential.I was pretty confident most of last years Carrolls would do well if given more minutes; they were obvious potential rotation players who contribute in almost any matchup. That is not the case with this years class. As usual, we err on the side of younger players, so rugged vets such as Brandon Bass, Matt Barnes and Kris Humphries wont appear here.UNSEXY WINGSSolomon Hill: Perhaps no under-the-radar player other than Biyombo made himself more money in the playoffs. Hill emerged as a dependable, small-ball power forward on Indianas reserve units. The Pacers tried to give him away at the deadline, disenchanted with his busted jump shot, and found no takers. Now, Hill might earn almost $10 million per season, perhaps more, though a few GMs remain unconvinced that hes an NBA player.He has an NBA-level feel -- a sense of rhythm, timing and vision that is hard to teach. Defenders sagged way off him to clog Indianas already cloggy offense, but when they rushed back to close out on him, Hill sauntered by them with herky-jerky drives that often ended in slick interior passes:He has a nifty spin move and can unleash out-of-nowhere, mean-spirited dunks in traffic.Hone his jumper, and you should have a solid rotation wing player. Hill nailed 11 of his 19 3s in the playoffs and shot a very encouraging 44 percent for the season on corner 3s. Those looks werent quite Andre Roberson-level open, but opponents are fine with Hill chucking. How many can he make if they take one step closer?His so-so jumper is less of a problem at power forward because Hills team should have at least three other decent shooters on the floor. As a pseudo-big, Hill can hang around the baseline, set screens and thread smart passes when he catches the ball on the pick-and-roll.Problem: Its unclear if Hill can guard real power forwards. Light-in-the-butt stretch guys and backups? Hes got those down, and he can switch easily between them and almost any wing player. He toggled from Patrick Patterson to DeMar DeRozan in the first round, and guarded everyone from Draymond Green to Russell Westbrook in the regular season. Hes solid against perimeter players, strong and generally in tune both on and off the ball.He gets a little handsy against speedsters who can zoom past him. He needs a loose whistle to survive those matchups.Stick him against a real big with a post game, and hes roadkill. He might be able to drive-and-kick by those guys on the other end, but only if he becomes a reliable 3-point shooter -- someone plodders have to defend outside their comfort zones. If he cant get there, Hill will end up a wing-sized guy who cant really play the wing on offense but can only slide down a position against bench guys. If he pulls it off, he might be a borderline starter.Still, that innate feel is intriguing. He showed enough in the playoffs that some team should take a flier on him, even a pricey one.ETwaun Moore: Chicago is confident that it can retain Moore for something around the mid-level exception -- about $5.6 million -- but the Bulls might have to pony up after the NBA watched Moore hold the fort amid injuries to Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose.Moore is ideally a bigger version of Patrick Beverley, a guy who defends opposing point guards and spots up on offense while a ball-dominant wing such as Butler does the heavy lifting. He shot a scorching -- and unsustainable -- 45 percent from deep, feasting on catch-and-shoot looks from the corners and beyond.He has some craft to his off-the-bounce game, and he needs it. He isnt explosive enough to get to the rim, so he relies on hesitation dribbles, shoulder shimmies and snakey crossovers to open space for floaters.He never gets to the line because he almost never gets near the rim. When opponents duck under picks against him, they are generally fast enough to beat Moore to the other side -- and wall off Moores driving lane before he can get downhill.Its harder to loft floaters over wing players, and at 6-foot-4, Moore is at a size deficit against them on the other end. Klay Thompson types can rain fire over him, and bullies can dislodge him on the block.Thats the downside: Moore cant quite run point for a functional offense, but he cant defend other positions against at least some opposing starters. On some nights, Moores fine because hes a rugged, heady defender who works hard.If he settles in as an above-average 3-point shooter, Moore will be a reliable backup at multiple positions who can start in a pinch.Maurice Harkless: Harkless may have graduated out of this group after starting down the stretch for Portland, but he hit just 28 percent of his 3s, and the Warriors hit him with the dreaded Tony Allen treatment.He has never quite found the game we glimpsed down the stretch of the 2013-14 season in Orlando, when he canned 38 percent of his 3s and looked confident making plays off the bounce.But Harkless just turned 23, and at 6-foot-9, he should be able to switch across every position but center on defense. He spent some time as a small-ball power forward on Portlands bench mobs, and he is a hungry rebounder when he wants to be. As with Hill, Harkless shooting issues are less damaging when hes working as a big man.To thrive on the wing against post-season defenses, Harkless has to shoot better. Defenders play off him to strangle his teams spacing, and its hard for Harkless -- not the most intuitive dribbler -- to juke guys who chill 15 feet from him.Teams routinely hide their worst defenders on Harkless, and he hasnt found a reliable method of punishing those weak links, whether they are big guys or point guards.He works on defense, but hes still learning the nuances. Hell smash into picks now and then and space out away from the ball. Again: Hes only a few months older than Buddy Hield. Harkless is a restricted free agent, and its going to take a monster offer sheet north of $10 million per season to pry him from Portland. Its worth a shot.SLOW-FOOTED GIANTSBoban Marjanovic: Are you ready for a world in which a guy who played 75 percent of minutes in garbage time might sign a one-year, $8 million deal? Youd better be because Boban is coming to take your money, stomp on your citys tallest buildings and drip soft, righty hooks over defenders sniffing his armpits.Seriously: Boban is skilled and massive, and he made guys such as Hassan Whiteside and DeMarcus Cousins look like fifth-graders guarding Billy Madison. He was probably San Antonios best hard-roller after they dumped Tiago Splitter -- a gap that worried GM R.C. Buford before the season -- and he can pick-and-roll himself into fatal post-up position underneath the rim.He drew nearly eight free throws per 36 minutes, and he can actually hit free throws. He shot an even 50 percent on post-ups, one of the best marks in the league, and he got to the line on nearly 20 percent of his post-up tries, 12th among 109 players who finished at least 50 such plays, per Synergy Sports. He would have led the league in offensive rebounding rate had he played enough minutes to qualify. Hes a canny passer who clowns fools with snappy fakes. Ask Jahlil Okafor, and kindly ignore the happy feet.Hes surprisingly nimble on defense, provided he doesnt have to venture above the foul line. When pick-and-roll ball-handlers enter the Boban zone, they find a giant human, arms spread so wide that he blocks all passing lines while remaining a threat to vacuum up any floater. If ball-handlers scoot by him, Marjanovic uses his long arms to whack at the ball from behind.Alas, life forces all of us out of our comfort zones, and teams with extra shooting can torture the big fella. Point guards who launch triples off the bounce are his kryptonite, since he has to lurch out an extra few steps to corral them.A breakdown anywhere, by any of his teammates, sends the game into a sort of drive-and-kick frenzy that unfolds too quickly for Marjanovic. Opponents shot 62.5 percent on shots at the rim when he was nearby, a hideous number for a big man, in part because offenses attack the rim after theyve busted a defense -- the sort of jailbreak Marjanovic isnt fast enough to snuff. He can be a weapon if the walls hold. He cant repair damage.Meet the wrong small-ball team in the playoffs, and you might have to nail Marjanovic to the bench. But those are rare opponents. Big fellas can sustain in most matchups, especially if you pair them with skilled perimeter defenders who allow them to hang back. Authentic Nike NBA Gear. Marjanovic isnt a mascot. Hes a skilled player worth a look as a third big, and some team might pay a lot to investigate. The Spurs extended Marjanovic a qualifying offer this week, which means that for now, Marjanovic is subject to the so-called Gilbert Arenas rule for restricted free agents with only one or two years in the league; suitors can offer him only $5.6 million in the first year of any deal. If San Antonio needs cap space, it could rescind that offer and let Marjanovic into unrestricted free agency. Alert your cities.Cole Aldrich: The snaggle-toothed hook-splayer has gradually developed into a workable pick-and-roll big capable of catching in traffic, taking a rhythm dribble and finishing with a soft touch on a surprising variety of scoopy moves.Hes a smart passer who knows where his shooters are, so he doesnt have to waste precious seconds finding them -- and give the defense time to rotate. Aldrich cleans the glass on both ends, tries hard and takes up a ton of space on defense. Like Marjanovic, he struggles against smaller teams who dot the floor with shooters and ping the ball around faster than he can move. Having zero post-up game compounds the small-ball issue. Teams arent afraid to defend him with wing players, unlocking the turbo lineups that torture old-school centers.Aldrich posted up a ton as a Knick in 2014-15, but he turned the ball over too much and flung blind hooks that posed a danger to fans seated in the first five rows. The Clippers excised the post-up form Aldrichs game, and he was better for it in the short run. To survive longer minutes, Aldrich needs to get in better shape and hone one go-to post move he can hit over smaller dudes. He has never logged 1,000 minutes in any NBA season.Thats the risk with players in this class: If Aldrich makes a mini-leap, he could become a nice third big, someone worth $10 million per season in this wild, new cap environment. If he stalls out, Aldrich is probably a fourth big who falls outside playoff rotation. Would you rather pay Aldrich $6 million or $7 million per season to coax out that upside or sign an old, back-of-the-rotation big for a little less?HOPPY TWEENER BIGSJon Leuer: Malleability is a skill, and Leuer, in the prime of his career, appears to morphing into a big who can play in lots of combinations -- provided you can absorb his limitations at either front-line spot on defense. Play him alongside a shooter, and Leuer shifts into pick-and-roll mode, slicing down the gut for bouncy finishes.Things get dicey when another big man is around to muck up the lane, but even then, Leuer has flashed the ability to veer through traffic.Play him next to a Tyson Chandler type, and Leuer slides out to the perimeter to pop jumpers. Leuer nailed 38 percent of his 110 3-point attempts last season -- more than he had in the previous four seasons combined. When defenders run him off the arc, Leuer is comfortable working off the bounce. He has a soft floater, and hes a willing passer with good vision.But his advantages melt away against skilled power forwards. They can keep up with Leuer off the dribble, and his jumper isnt polished enough to drag them out of the lane. He shot just 35 percent on long 2s this season, and his 3-pointer is unproven. Leuer has zero post game, so teams arent afraid to go small, stick wing players on him and run Leuer off the court. Leuer is probably best on offense as an undersized center, but he struggles to hold his ground there on defense. Real centers bulldoze him, and Leuer doesnt frighten anyone around the basket. Hes sort of a shorter Kelly Olynyk, with a worse 3-point shot.But the dude is skilled, and all those tweener limitations matter less against opposing bench units. Hes a reliable locker-room presence, and he busts it. He blew away his career-high rebounding numbers last season and battled at center when the Suns paired him with Teletovic. He made a hair over the minimum for Phoenix, but it might take $8 million per year -- or more -- to get him this summer. ?Keep an eye on the Pistons.Dwight Powell:?He is similar to Leuer, but Powells skill set on offense tilts even more toward the center spot -- something that could make him a more finicky lineup fit. The Mavs main bounty in the Rajon Rondo trade is a legitimately explosive pick-and-roll finisher who zooms through tight spaces for dunks.If Powells big man partner clutters up space around the basket, dialed-in defenses can wall off his pathways to the rim and turn those dunks into tricky floaters. To thrive on offense, Powell needs to play as the nominal center alongside four shooters. To survive on defense, he usually needs to guard power forwards. Hes too small to jostle with starting centers on the block or keep them off the glass. Dallas shoehorned him into that role to spare Dirk Nowitzki some punishment, but it was a stretch.Powells ideal front-court partner is a shooter big enough to defend centers -- an NBA unicorn. Powell can change that equation if he improves his jumper, but his resume is discouraging. Powell has canned just five career triples and clanked two-thirds of his midrange jumpers last season. Right now, hes an intriguing, short-minutes bench center.That said, hes only 24, and his shooting stroke looks good from the hips up. He has the wheels to leap off stretch power forwards, cut off opposing point guards on the pick-and-roll and scurry back before his guy can jack a pick-and-pop jumper. Powell is an athlete and a worker; hes worth a flier in the $5 million range or more. Thats nearly the most teams can offer him in the first two years of any offer sheet. Like Marjanovic, Powell is subject to the Gilbert Arenas rule.FORMER NETS WHO MIGHT NOT BE GOODMarkel Brown:?Now its getting a little depressing. Signing Brown would be a long-shot, low-cost bet on two things: his 44 percent mark on corner 3s last season and a rangy, almost 6-foot-9 wingspan that could help Brown defend above his listed 6-3 height. Those corner 3s were wide open because defenses have correctly concluded Browns jumper is busted. They ignored him to muck up Brooklyns spacing, and its unclear if Browns newfound accuracy from the corners would sustain if defenders slid even one half-step closer to him.To earn a rotation spot, Brown will have to do something off the dribble when a teammate swings him the ball and defenders close out at him. That bricky jumper makes the job harder. Defenders wont sprint at him in a panic and should be able to hold their balance when Brown tries to drive by them. The Nets tried Brown a bunch in the pick-and-roll, but defenders moonwalked under picks, inviting him to belch midrange jumpers. But when he found a driving lane, Brown showed unexpectedly good vision. He dished 3.3 dimes per 36 minutes last year, double his average from 2014-15, and he can make every basic read out of the pick-and-roll -- plus some advanced looks.He maps the floor well in his head and runs a clean, confident fast break. Brown is a leaper with some highlight dunks in his dossier, but he might be one of those guys who needs a long runway into a 2-footed jump to really get up. He doesnt fly as high after tip-toeing through tight spaces.Hes solid in defending point guards and smaller wings, but bigger guys can overpower him. He ball watches now and then. Brown is a restricted free agent, but a team might be able to pry him away for $3 million or $4 million per season. Without the cap boom, Brown would be a minimum player. In this brave new world, there might not be any minimum players.Shane Larkin: Bad news: Larkin turned the ball over on 22.3 percent of pick-and-rolls he finished, 150th among 178 players who ran at least 50, per Synergy Sports. Larkin is track-star fast, but he doesnt think and feel the game at a sophisticated level. He zooms to the rim without a Plan B, and when youre (listed at) 5-foot-11, you really need a Plan B. If a defender appears in front of him, Larkin either hoists a wild shot or flings a desperate heave in the general direction of a teammate.He needs to mine the start-and-stop craft of Isaiah Thomas, another turbo-charged mighty mite who discovered he could be more effective amid the trees by slowing down and keeping his dribble alive. Defense is an uphill battle for short dudes, and Larkin makes it worse by taking bad routes around picks -- or slamming right into them. He sometimes exhales when his guy passes the ball, and against active cutters, that blip of relaxation can sabotage an entire defense.But there is a capable backup point guard in here somewhere. Spread the floor around Larkin pick-and-rolls, and you weaponize his speed by allowing him to attack a single help defender in an uncluttered lane. Thats a simpler chessboard, easier to read, and Larkin has developed some nifty moves to clown big men on an island -- push shots, killer in-and-out dribbles, and more.He jacked his assist rate up to a career-best level last season and drilled 36 percent of his 3s, a key development, as defenses will sneak under screens against Larkin to wall off his zippy drives. Sustain that, add in a dash of savvy on both ends, and youve got something.?It may take $5 million per year to get him, which sounds insane until you remember it amounts to about 1/20th of the salary cap -- perfectly fair if you think Larkin can give 15 quality minutes off the bench every night.HONORABLE MENTION:?Tyler Johnson, Seth Curry, Troy Daniels, Lance Thomas, Andrew Nicholson, Dewayne Dedmon, Garrett Temple, James Michael McAdoo.

MONTREAL -- Carey Price eased back into action with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Adidas NHL Jerseys From China .Price made 27 saves in his season debut to help the Canadiens beat the Arizona Coyotes 5-2.It was nice to get back into the routine and get to play a regular-season game, Price said. I felt fine. I felt pretty good in the skate this morning. We were skating well and moving the puck. Its always a bonus to put up five (goals).Price made his first NHL start since injuring his right knee on Nov. 25, 2015. He also missed the first three games of this season because of the flu.For a guy who hasnt skated for a while, because of his flu, he was sharp, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. Very encouraging to see.Alexei Emelin, Torrey Mitchell, Shea Weber, Alex Galchenyuk and Artturi Lehkonen scored for Montreal (3-0-1).Hes got such a calming presence, Mitchell said about Price. Hes such a big leader for us. He was joking about not setting the bar too high and getting a shutout in game one, so it was nice to get five goals for him.Jakob Chychrun and Laurent Dauphin scored for the Coyotes.Playing for the injured Coyotes starter Mike Smith, backup Louis Domingue allowed four goals on 19 shots before being pulled in the second period. Justin Peters stopped 23 of 24 shots in relief. Arizona dropped to 1-2-0.It got away from us in the second period, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said. We were all right, we competed hard, but there are areas of our game that we still have to clean up. The execution is not what it needs to be. We need all the parts to work to be competitive.Price wasnt tested much in the first period, stopping all eight shots he faced.Things werent as smooth in the second. A sprawled-out Price was helpless against Chychrun at 6:36 for Arizonas first of the night to make it 4-1. The Coyotes scores again with 3:11 left in the period, a short-handed goal after a bad giveaway by Nathan Beaulieu in his own zone.Montreal put the game out of reach with three goals in less than 4 minutes in the second period.Mitchell made it 2-0 with a one-timer at 2:07 off a beautiful cross-ice pass from Beaulieu. Weber then scored his first in a Canadiens uniform 2 minutes later with a hard slap shot through traffic.It was unbelievable, said Weber of the fans response to his goal. I cant describe the feeling. Its really special. Happy to be part of this team.Galchenyuk dangled around Arizona captain Shane Doan before beating Domingue with a wrister at 5:49 to make it 4-0.Lehkonen fired home his second of the season to make it 5-2 in the third.Emelin opened the scoring for the Canadiens at 13:20 of the first period. Using Andrew Shaw as a screen, he beat Domingue with a slap shot between pad and blocker.Game notes Price is 8-0-0 in his career against the Coyotes. ... Emelin scored for the first time since March 17. ... Montreal defenseman Zach Redmond broke his foot during practice Thursday morning. Hes expected to be sidelined six weeks.UP NEXTCoyotes: Arizona has four more games left on a six-game trip. The Coyotes are at the New York Islanders on Friday night and will face the New York Rangers on Sunday night.Canadiens: Montreal is at Boston on Saturday night. Stitched Adidas NHL Jerseys . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday.

Wholesale Adidas NHL Jerseys . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Stan Van Gundy anticipated his offense would have some issues in the early going. The Detroit Pistons head coach has even more concerns about his defense and rebounding after an ugly performance on opening night.The Pistons need to improve in every area when they play their home opener against the Orlando Magic on Friday. The Pistons trailed by double digits throughout the second half of a 109-91 loss to Toronto on Wednesday. Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas and shooting guard DeMar DeRozan combined for 72 points as Toronto shot 47.7 percent from the field.Detroit shot 41.7 percent and got outrebounded 51-40.We just hit these times where were just a one-option team and the ball doesnt move, said Van Gundy, whose team also dropped its preseason finale 103-92 to the Raptors. Thats going to have to change. But that to me is almost secondary right now. Until we change defensively and on the boards from what weve done these last two games, it really doesnt matter what we do offensively. We dont have a chance to win and be good if were not going to defend and rebound.All-Star center Andre Drummond played just 24 minutes after taking an elbow to the face from Valanciunas in the opening minutes and getting into early foul trouble. He finished with 16 points, six rebounds and four turnovers.The Pistons also clearly missed floor leader Reggie Jackson, who is expected to sit out approximately 20 games with knee tendinitis. Fill-in starter Ish Smith had seven assists and no turnovers in 33 minutes but shot 3-of-10 from the field.Backup point guard Beno Udrihh, claimed off waivers from Miami earlier in the week, had five points on 1-of-5 shooting and two assists in 15 minutes.

Weve got some offensive problems but we knew that was going to be a little bit of a struggle, Van Gundy said.Miami spoiled Frank Vogels debut as Orlando head coach on Wednesday, knocking off the Magic 108-96.Like the Pistons, Orlando had a multitude of issues in its opener. The Magic shot 38.6 percent from the field, got outscored 74-36 in the paint and lost the rebounding battle 52-44.We have to figure it out fast, because we have a tough schedule in front of us, and if we dig ourselves a hole, its going to be really hard, center Nikola Vucevic told the Orlando Sentinel.Power forward Serge Ibaka, acquired from the Thunder in a blockbuster deal in June, had 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting and seven rebounds in his Orlando debut.Center Bismack Biyombo, who was signed to a four-year, $72 million contract as an unrestricted free agent, will make his Magic debut. He served a one-game league suspension opening night for exceeding the flagrant foul limit during the Raptors postseason run.Biz is a monster, shooting guard Evan Fournier told the Orlando Sentinel. Hes our best screener, probably our best offensive rebounder. Hes just a guy with tons of energy. He plays super hard. Hes big for us, man.The Pistons have won the last six meetings with the Magic, including a three-game sweep last season.

With more than 700 hate incidents reported since the recent presidential election, a significant part of America stands tense and fearful. Cheap Edmonton Oilers Jerseys . It is at times like these that we expect our educational leaders at institutions of higher education to share wisdom and help calm the storm. But if you look at who is in the leadership positions there, they are overwhelmingly white and male.The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida continues to research and report on racial and gender equality in sports. Today, we are releasing our report -- Collegiate Athletic Leadership Still Dominated by White Men: Assessing Diversity Among Campus and Conference Leaders for Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Schools in the 2016-17 Academic Year -- assessing the racial and gender makeup of key leadership positions.In the 2016-17 report, 88 percent of our presidents, 86 percent of our athletic directors, 89 percent of faculty athletics representatives and 100 percent of our conference commissioners were white. In those positions, 76, 79, 63 and 90 percent were white men, respectively. Overall, whites held 341 (88 percent) of the 388 campus leadership positions reported in this study, which was a slight decrease from 89 percent in 2015.As we release this annual report, I think of hearing from one of our graduates, an African-American woman who is so talented and smart that we wanted to hire her at the NCAS. She shared with me that someone at the post office yelled, Heil Hitler. I was alone with that man and the two postmen behind the counter. They laughed and proceeded to tell me that they couldnt mail my letter and every post office was out of stamps for me.As we release this annual report, I watch with horror the increasing number of hate incidents and overall unrest in our country. Throughout my life, I have seen incredible advances in the rights of women and people of color, but the recent climate has led me to wonder what the future holds for the next generation.Those who are parents are genuinely fearful for their childrens safety. How could they not be? Each year, as I conduct research for this report, I am hopeful the results will show increased representation for women and people of color in the leadership roles at the FBS schools. If there were more women and people of color in the decision-making positions at our colleges and universities, they would be helping to address the issues that are continuing to boil up on the surface.The NCAA met and deliberated about the shockingly poor record of hiring practices in college sport and decided to adopt the Pledge and Commitment to Promoting Diversity and Gender Equity in Intercollegiate Athletics in September 2016. It is a strong call and has been signed by many presidents. The criticism is that the pledge is not binding and there are no sanctions for not improving the hiring record of a university athletics department. We can hope that the pledge and the strong backing of President Mark Emmert will lead to change.But I think we need what I have called The Eddie Robinson Rule, patterned after the NFLs Rooney Rule, with built-in sanctions to stop more years of overwhelmingly white men leading us in higher education. We need people of color and women in the candidate pool for all leadership positions on our campuses.As a child of the civil rights movement, I grew up in a family fighting for equal opportunity and the human rights due to every human being. However, at this moment, division and animosity appear to dominate our country.I have personally experienced the power sport has to unite people of all cultures and backgrounds. I believe colleges and universities must take advantage of the power they have to foster camaraderie and continue to fight for equality. Student-athletes have a major role to play in standing up for justice so the establishment cannot block its path.We release this report not to add to the contentious nature of these issues but to inform America of the continued pattern of under-representation of women and people of color in our society. The FBS D-1 Leadership reports main objective is to challenge all colleges and universities to mirror the diversity of their students and student-athletes in their campus leadership positions.Women and people of color who seek leadership positions in American higher education and college sports face enormous odds. This years report presents 19 women as presidents, and nine as athletic directors. Among people of color, there are 15 who are presidents and 16 who are football head coaches out of 128 FBS institutions. That number is about to go down as it is being reported that Charlie Strong, the coach at the university of Texas, is being fired. As we move toward college football playoffs, bowl games and the national championship, these poor numbers stand in stark contrast to our college football student-athletes, which are comprised of 58.7 percent people of color.In the DeVos Sport Business Management Program that I chair, and at the National Consortium for Academics and Sport, which I helped found more than 30 years ago, we always talk about using the power of sport to heal communities. The most recent example was after the nightmare of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, when the Tampa Bay Rays, Orlando City Soccer and, most recently, the Orlando Magic dedicated games to the victims and first responders. I am proud that it was our DeVos alumni who prepared the production of those events at all three sites. The City of Orlando and its sports teams took the despair and did something about it.I spent 50 years of my life working to bring people together. My wife, Ann, and I have done that together for the past 30 years. Bridging gaps. Talking about love conquering hate and love leading to forgiveness. Yet the morning after the 2016 presidential election, I did not know what to do. I felt helpless.But as the day went on, I heard from more than 15 former students and spoke to a dozen current students. Among them were women, African-Americans, Latinos and Muslims. Gays and lesbians. My family had been texting back and forth all day. The path became more clear. We need to do what we do best and work relentlessly with even more determination than in the past to fight against injustice and discrimination.Through the NCAS, we have been doing diversity and inclusion training for nearly three decades. For many of those years, we did a pretraining survey, and the biggest distinction between the opinions of white men, white women, black women and black men was that white men and women overwhelmingly felt that affirmative action discriminated against them. However, black men and women, by between 70 to 80 percent, felt that affirmative action did not discriminate against white men or women.The surveys we did after our training showed significantly different opinions in all four groups. White men and women felt less threatened by affirmative action, and black men and women were more sympathetic to the apprehension that white people had shown about the effects of affirmative action. Bridges were built. Bridges were and are possible now.We cannot sit on the sidelines. To use a sports analogy, we need to be in the game for social justice. I ask our student-athlete leaders, professional athletes and coaches to continue doing that if they already are, and perhaps add more emphasis. If you are not already involved, take this as an opportunity to pick an issue you are passionate about and help a local group advance that cause.We can do something about social justice in America. Our childrens future is at stake. We can all fight for that, no matter whom you voted for in the election. We need our leaders in higher education to help show the way, but that leadership needs to look more like America. We have a lot of work to do.Richard E.

Dennis was forced to relinquish his positions following a board meeting on Tuesday.In a statement addressing his enforced resignation from the positions, Dennis said: The grounds they have stated are entirely spurious; my management style is the same as it has always been and is one that has enabled McLaren to become an automotive and technology group that has won 20 Formula One world championships. And it is that unwillingness to change his management style that Fleet Street believe caused Dennis exit.The combative Dennis has clashed in recent weeks with Mumtalakat, the Bahraini sovereign wealth fund that owns 50 per cent of McLaren, and with Saudi businessman Mansour Ojjeh, who controls 25 per cent, wrote Oliver Brown in The Telegraph.They are understood to have become uneasy at his micromanaging approach - Dennis likes, for instance, every room at the groups Woking headquarters to be set to his favourite temperature of 21c. Craig Slater reports that Ron Dennis feels betrayed by his own family after stepping down as McLaren chairman and chief executive Jonathan McEvoy concurred in the Daily Mail writing that Dennis clearly feels upset at being forced out by his fellow shareholders, Saudi businessman Mansour Ojjeh and the Bahrain royal family, who feel that they want a more modern management structure rather than the Ron show, whereby he was front and back of house.Writing along a similar vein, The Guardians Paul Weaver said the board felt that Dennis management style was now holding McLaren back.In recent times, McLaren have struggled to recapture old glories and Dennis is no longer viewed as the man to revive their ailing spirit; in fact, the style that made this ruthlessly single-minded and most driven of men so successful is now viewed as something of a handicap when it comes to development. He was always more autocratic than collegiate, wrote Weaver.Attention now turns to who could replace Dennis, with American businessman Zak Brown thought to be the front runner and former Ferrari technical chief James Allison also linked wiith a move to McLaren.

NEW YORK -- After five Olympic appearances, one halted retirement, and a record 27-medal haul thats unlikely to ever be matched, American swimmer Michael Phelps said at a USA Swimming event Monday night that he knows people dont believe hes really truly retired this time, either, given his recent success at the Rio Olympics.But along with talking about the secret wedding he had just before this past summers Games, he told another story about putting his retirement intentions down in writing this time. He said he has signed the paperwork to remove his name from the drug testing pool to underscore his seriousness that he is not coming back, adding he wont miss having to constantly update drug testers of his whereabouts for unannounced tests.It might be about two months ago now that I did it, [when] we came back from a trip to Milan, Phelps said as he held his infant son, Boomer, on his hip and paused on the red carpet at the Golden Goggles Awards in New York, an annual benefit for USA Swimming.I said to Peter [Carlisle, his agent], Get the papers, can we just sign these things so I dont have to do the daily updates and everything?

Phelps said the first one was a small little ceremony in their backyard on June 13 to make it less problematic for Johnson and their son to travel. They didnt publicly announce it had occurred even by August at the Olympics, where Phelps still described Johnson as his fiancée. The real wedding, Phelps added, was a more formal affair on Oct. 29 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.It was small. We had just friends and family there. And it was perfect, Phelps said.

New Zealands 10-try rout of Italy helped put the disappointment of a first loss to Ireland behind them and prepared the team for a shot at redemption in Dublin, according to the All Blacks. Cheap NCAA Jerseys China .The world champions suffered their first defeat at the hands of the Irish in 111 years, losing 40-29 in Chicago last week in a match that ended the All Blacks record tier-one run of 18 consecutive Test wins.With coach Steve Hansen making 12 changes from the team that lost in Chicago, they responded on Saturday (Sunday AEDT) by scoring five tries in each half to thrash the Italians 68-10 in Rome.We needed to bounce back this week after a disappointing game by All Black standards last week, stand-in captain Sam Cane said.We all gelled and came together and kept the scoreboard ticking over throughout the 80 minutes, which was very pleasing.After being exposed on defence last week against Ireland, the All Blacks were rarely challenged by Italy at the Stadio Olympico, with the Azzurris game plan limited to aimless kicking that failed to put any pressure on the visitors.Hansen gave little away about how the Italy game would shape selections for the Ireland rematch in Dublin next Saturday (Sunday AEDT), though he praised the performance of man-of-the-match Aaron Cruden, who dictated the game at five-eighth.He hasnt played a lot of rugby, so we wanted him firstly to get more match time, Hansen said.Secondly, (we wanted him) to do his core roles really well - his passing, kicking, running and organising - and get back into the flow of rugby again.As the game went on he got better and better.It bodes well for next week, weve got a lot of in-form people for selection, and even better, it bodes well for the future.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessees backcourt sustained two major losses, with Andraya Carter forgoing her final season of eligibility and Tea Cooper out the entire season with a knee injury.Carter issued a statement Wednesday saying she was ending her college career to recover from a series of injuries.

Elzy was rehired by Kentucky this spring.The Lady Vols went 22-14 last season and set a school record for losses. They recovered down the stretch to reach a regional final for the fifth time in the last six years.Recruiting troubles in the past year prevented the Lady Vols from upgrading their roster much since the end of the 2015-116 season. Cheap College Football Jerseys. Their additions were freshman shot-blocking specialist Kamera Harris, Winthrop graduate transfer Schaquilla Nunn and ASA College transfer Cheridene Green, who wont play in the 2016-17 season as she recovers from knee surgery.Carter made 82 career starts at Tennessee and posted career averages of 6.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists. Last season, the 5-foot-9 guard made 25 starts and had 4.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists while averaging 26.2 minutes.Carter underwent season-ending shoulder surgery during the 2012-13 season and was redshirted.After loving the game so much for so long, it is hard to imagine forgoing an opportunity to play for one more year, Carter said. Yet, the past four years have taken a toll on my body that I can no longer ignore. The injuries that I once effortlessly pushed aside and played through are beginning to catch up to me and have long-term effects.Warlick said Carter also had been dealing with a knee problem.We discussed only practicing twice a week or only playing in games, but anyone who knows me knows those options were unacceptable to me, Carter said. If I was going to continue playing basketball, I wanted to practice, condition, lift weights, be with my teammates and be able to work as hard as I could to get better every single day.Carter graduated in August 2015 with a degree in communication studies and will remain in school this year working toward her masters degree in sport psychology. Warlick called Carter a great ambassador to this program.The Lady Vols open the 2016-17 season Nov. 11 at James Madison.

Max Verstappen thinks he can jump above both Ferrari drivers and Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo to finish third in the standings by the end of 2016. Authentic Adidas NHL Jerseys .Verstappen finished second at the British Grand Prix, splitting the Mercedes drivers, as Ferraris challenge failed to materialise. He is currently sixth in the standings but has taken two podiums and a victory since his elevation from Toro Rosso to Red Bull ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.Verstappen sees no reason why he cannot keep up his current form and continue moving up the standings.We are pretty close, so we will see where we end up at the end of the season, he said. It will be between third or sixth -- hopefully. You try to do the best possible race every race and we see after Abu Dhabi where we are.Ferraris season has failed to live up to winter expectations and comes to Hungary knowing it cannot fail again after ten races without a win. The developing threat of Red Bull has seen the Milton Keynes outfit move to within six points of Ferrari in the constructors championship.Verstappen thinks Hungary is a place where Red Bull can set its sights on Mercedes rather than Ferrari.I think the best chance was in Monaco, for sure. But here the car can be very strong and Im looking forward to the weekend because so far the car has been pretty strong, even on tracks where we didnt expect it to be that strong.We just have to wait and see. Its all about the set-up now and how we can improve during the sessions. Hopefully we can be very close. Adidas NHL Jerseys China . In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season. And although English league clubs are unlikely to splash cash in January, Arsenal and Chelsea could be tempted to strengthen their squads with new strikers. Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Will Rodriguez put his collectible cup down just for a second, then -- swoosh! -- it was swiped.He owned one of the hottest souvenirs of the Rio de Janeiro Games: A plastic Olympic gymnastics beer cup.That was a good one, Rodriguez, of Dallas, lamented.Yes, the Olympics has yet another cupping craze, though this one involves the swirling orange, blue and green color patterns on a yellow cup that include the name and silhouette for more than two dozen sports.The most common sight at Olympic venues arent medals draped around necks, but fans walking around with arms full, fixated on finding the next beer stand and hoarding empty cups.Beer here!Sure, but fans are chugging -- and sometimes just dumping -- their half liters (about 17 ounces) of Skol lager simply for the empty cups. Then its back in line to put another 13 Brazilian reals (about $4) on the growing beer tab. That totals at least 300 reals for the set.The cups are suddenly fueling the merchandise machine and have been traded, sold, and yes, even stolen, as fans clamor for hard-to-find sports such as gymnastics and soccer this deep into the Olympics.About an hour before boxings Sunday evening session started, fans lined up 25 deep at some cerveja stands ready to go another round.The long lines werent necessarily because of slow pours from the can into the cup. Once at the front of the line, fans would shake through stacks of cups until they found the one sport they wanted.Boxe! Boxe! Boxe! one fan shouted in Portuguese in his search for boxing.No! No! the server shouted, as he pointed to one of the other stands at Rio Centro.So off the man went, without a beer, with a more pressing mission on tap for the night.Trampoline, tennis, equestrian, taekwondo and water polo were the most common cups found Sunday at the complex thats home to boxing, table tennis, badminton and weightlifting.Brazilian native Sergio De Oliveira, now of Hoboken, New Jersey, wore his Team USA hat and shirt and gripped his equestrian (hipiismo) cup. Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Online. De Oliveira and husband Terry Miles are trying to collect the cups of all 14 events theyve seen at the Olympics.De Oliveira had no idea that when he bought a gymnastics cup at the opening ceremony, the hunk of plastic would soon spark a memorabilia frenzy.It was huge we got it all, Miles said.Miles doesnt drink, leaving all the beer guzzling to De Oliveira.They have about 10 cups so far, but had yet to find their No. 1 target -- archery. They also wanted synchronized diving.But dont expect the couple to auction the cups on eBay to recoup the 130 reals and counting theyve spent on their collectibles. They are keeping most of them and will share a few with friends back in the United States.Carmen Pruneda, of San Antonio, Texas, had no interest in sipping any light blonde lager.Im looking for cups, but I dont drink beer, she said.Pruneda has traded pins for cups, and cups for pins. She hit a bit of good luck when a woman dropped a cup on an escalator. The woman asked Pruneda if she was a collector. When she said yes, the stranger gave her both of her cups, boosting Prunedas total to six.One beer server said it was forbidden to just buy a cup.The trinkets are a steal compared to other Olympic merchandise. Olympic hats are going for about 60 reals, T-shirts for 80 to 100 and keychains are 35. One man bought a beach towel at the souvenir stand -- a soft landing spot for the three cups he then stuffed inside his shopping bag.Come to think of it, those purple circles dotting Michael Phelps shoulder and back from his cupping therapy do look like coasters.Maybe he wouldnt mind serving as a true arm rest for the cups at the next Olympic bash.While stuffed trash bags and overflowing bins of Skol aluminum beer cans are a sore sight at the games, theres not a plastic cup around to recycle.It has been a good way to keep litter down, Rodriguez said.

Hall of Fame coach Rick Pitino has been charged with failing to monitor a staff member in his basketball program, but Louisville otherwise escaped potentially serious penalties stemming from an NCAA investigation into allegations made by a former escort. Signed Nike MLB Jerseys .The NCAAs notice of allegations, released Thursday, includes four Level I charges, with one to Pitino, two directed at former director of basketball operations Andre McGee and the fourth aimed at former assistant Brandon Williams.The university was not charged with any violations, such as a lack of institutional control or failure to monitor, the two most egregious NCAA infractions.Pitino, however, could face a steep penalty. Although the NCAA did not say Pitino was complicit or charge him with committing a violation, it alleges that the coach did not monitor McGee and failed to spot-check his program, including actively looking for red flags.The people who investigated this were highly professional. They were fair, Pitino said at a news conference Thursday. Do I agree with failure to monitor my staff? No. I overly monitor my staff.Pitino has repeatedly denied any knowledge of the accusations made by former escort Katina Powell. In her October 2015 book, Breaking Cardinal Rules, Powell said McGee paid her and other escorts thousands of dollars and gave them tickets to games in exchange for sex with recruits and players in the players dormitory, Minardi Hall. The NCAA agreed, alleging that McGee paid some $5,400 to the escorts.The Notice of Allegations absolutely confirms that Katina Powell told the truth in her book and in each of her meetings with the NCAA. You can say what you want about Katina Powell and the decisions she made, but you cant call her a liar, Powells attorney Larry Wilder said.When will they [the University of Louisville and Rick Pitino] acknowledge that Miss Powell is something more than what she was accused of being, which is a liar? The way they treated this lady when she came out and told the truth would scare the hell out of anybody who is interested in telling the truth.Pitino,?athletic director Tom Jurich and?acting university president Dr. Neville Pinto said they planned to dispute the charges against the coach.The NOA does contain a narrow allegation, which we will dispute, that Coach Pitino failed to monitor Andre McGee, Jurich said. If he would have caught a whiff of what was going on, he would have hit the roof.I wish it would have been leaked out to me because it would have been stopped immediately, Pitino said.We need to get kids comfortable to come and talk to us when theres a wrong, Jurich said.The NCAA says McGees payments, made for at least 17 athletes and recruits, can be construed as impermissible benefits.I asked it to myself a million times: Should he have known? Jurich said of Pitino. And I have come to the conclusion that he could not have known. The activity was clearly kept from him.A source familiar with the testimony that three Louisville recruits provided to investigators told Outside the Lines John Barr on Thursday that the NCAA was very conservative in terms of the allegations leveled.It kind of mystifies me a little bit. How can you have strippers and escorts on a college campus and the head coach is not responsible for that? How on earth can you not charge a program with a lack of institutional control when there is criminal conduct on your campus? the source said. This is not something that was a one-time occurrence. It happened on multiple occasions.?But what Pitino did or did not know might not matter. Under the most recent NCAA enforcement legislation, enacted in 2014, a head coach is presumed to be responsible for the actions of any and all staff members and can be held accountable for their violations, even if the coach is unaware.Not knowing what happened, in other words, is no longer a defense. The NCAAs stance is that the head coach should have known.Using case precedent, coaches who faced similar charges have seen multigame suspensions. Last season, Syracuses Jim Boeheim and then-SMU coach Larry Brown each were forced to sit for nine games over violations.McGee, who had moved on to and later resigned from?Missouri-Kansas City?weeks after Powells book was released, refused to talk to NCAA investigators. Williams, who was on the Louisville staff for one year as a program assistant, refused to turn over phone records. Refusing to cooperate with NCAA investigators, considered major breaches of ethical conduct, typically results in the harshest penalties.Acknowledging that violations likely did occur and in the hopes of mitigating further penalties, Louisville last season self-imposed a postseason ban, cut scholarships and reduced its recruiting access. The NCAA noted those efforts in its document, recognizing the imposition of meaningful corrective measures and/or penalties.These allegations underscore why it was appropriate for the University to impose strict penalties on our basketball program earlier this year, Jurich and Pinto said in a statement. The penalties we imposed were among the most severe penalties ever self-imposed by an NCAA member.Earlier this month,?Pitino said the schools self-imposed sanctions should be enough to satisfy the NCAA.The school has 90 days to respond to the NCAAs notice and dispute any of its findings. The NCAA will then have 60 days to review that response. That timetable, coupled with the meeting schedule for the NCAAs Committee on Infractions, means that neither Pitino nor the university will learn of penalties until at least the spring of 2017.In conjunction with the university, the NCAA hired two consultants -- Chuck Smrt and Steve Thompson -- to lead the investigation and conduct more than 90 interviews.Weve gone above and beyond in our all efforts to get to the truth in this case. Im not sure theres anything more this university could have done in this investigation to get the truth, Thompson said.Information from ESPN staff writers Brian Bennett and John Barr and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

NEWPORT, R.I. -- Defending champion Rajeev Ram beat fellow American Mackenzie McDonald?6-2, 6-3 in the opening round of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships on Monday.Ram, a two-time winner on Newports grass courts, needed just 65 minutes to get past the 21-year-old McDonald, making his tour debut.Ram, 32, won the first set in 33 minutes on a new-look center court area in the shadows of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.He said he enjoys coming back to Newport.Ive won two titles; theyve both been here, he said. Ive played here every year since Ive been a pro. A lot of things make it really special.After last years event, wooden bleachers at center court behind the south baseline were replaced by stadium seats. An electronic scoreboard was installed, which gave the players the option of challenging calls for the first time at the tournament, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.Up 4-0 in the second set, Ram doubled-faulted twice in three points to lose the first of two straight games.That probably shouldnt have happened from 40-love up, he said. Thankfully, I was up two breaks.He won the match when McDonald hit a forehand return wide.Ram feels better prepared to defend his title this year.It ffeels a little bit different than it did in 2010 when I was defending it, he said. Nike MLB Jerseys Autographed. I feel a little bit more confident in my game and what I can do.McDonald captured an NCAA singles and doubles title at UCLA before turning pro.Top seed Steve Johnson, now ranked a career-best No. 25, received a bye and is scheduled to play his first match Wednesday.In other first-round play, No. 8 seed Donald Young beat fellow American Jared Donaldson?6-1, 6-3; Dudi Sela of Israel ousted Lukas Lacko of Slovakia 6-3, 6-2; and Marco Chiudinelli of Switzerland advanced when fifth-seeded Vasek Pospisil of Canada withdrew with a back injury.The Hall of Fame Championships are played in conjunction with induction ceremonies into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Justine Henin, a former WTA world No. 1 and seven-time major champion, and Marat Safin, a two-time major and former world No. 1, are scheduled to be enshrined Saturday during a center-court ceremony.Amelie Mauresmo, who was enshrined last year but missed the ceremony for the birth of her son, is also scheduled to be on hand.
