Rakitic could hardly understand what he had just been involved in after Barca sealed a 6-5 aggregate victory. I could see that Pique hadn't reached it and I threw everything at it. Thiago highlighted the dodgy stoppage-time penalty given for a foul on Luis Suarez that made it 5-1. The second period started just as the first ended as Barca edged closer to the history books when Neymar was clipped by the prone Meunier and, after consultation with one of his assistants, German referee Deniz ...
They went without a field goal for more than 7 minutes to trail 54-38 with 11:46 left. But if they get bounced early on, they'll likely end up as a three. Lonzo Ball , the Bruins' star freshman point guard, and Alford, the senior sharpshooter, went almost 30 minutes without making a 3-pointer. The Pac-12 Tournament victor still has a good shot to be one of the four No.
Mourinho, whose team were held to a 1-1 first-leg draw at Rostov yesterday morning (Singapore time), said he would rotate his squad for the Chelsea clash but not fill it with youngsters from interim Under-23 manager Nicky Butt's team.

Slaven Bilic said his West Ham side "deserved to get something" out of the game despite Bournemouth missing two penalties.
I think it's important to have this type of player if we want to win. We are sitting with the same bunch of players near enough which performed well and won the league under Jose Mourinho, in 2015, we were top for almost all of that season.
After the game, Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said he's yet to see a college basketball player among this year's crop with more NBA potential than Tatum. Sure, he was nearly a 46 percent shooter overall and 40 percent from downtown before the skid, but UNC will be ousted from the Big Dance if he can not get going.
But his ability at right guard to be honest hasn't been as terrific as it was during the earlier days of his career, playing on the edge of the offensive line at tackle.

The confetti falling on UW would be some form of redemption, Hayes said, but then he realizes all 14 teams want to win it. The tournament may not have a dominant team, but the highest seeded squad is now out. "Today we got to the 50-50 balls". The Terrapins closed to 56-53 but simply couldn't keep pace with the Wildcats, who outscored Maryland 38-20 over the final 16 minutes.
While Cabot suggests that the Browns could save roughly $4 million in offsets based on the contract he signs on the open market, why would any team offer more than the $775,000 veteran minimum?

The match was one that lacked quality throughout, but a neat headed finish from Antoine Griezmann with less than 10 minutes to go opened up the gap for the Spanish capital's side to four points over fifth-placed Real Sociedad. The forward had earlier raised doubts about moving to England owing to concerns about his life off the field and the bad weather. So I am feeling very well here.
The Texans will also send their a 2018 second-round pick and 2017 sixth-round pick as part of the deal with the Browns. Schefter reported that the Browns will likely try to trade Osweiler - which is a task that will prove easier said than done.

The retirement gives Dallas $5 million in additional salary cap space. The Cowboys could also look to add an offensive lineman in free agency or in the draft, but will surely find it hard to find an option as reliable as Free.

But since the All-Pro has been named to the Pro Bowl every single season his been in the National Football League at that position, changing Martin's role now seems like an unwise move.

It's a leg injury", defence coach Paul Gustard said. "Owen could be a doubt". Much of the onlookers on Twitter felt Eddie Jones' men should have been up against 14 for the rest of the match, not just the next ten minutes.
