The game see-sawed between the two teams right through the day with the De Kock-Bavuma stand of 160 the major highlight.

Smith just got back in the lineup after having thumb surgery. "LeBron's reiterated again that they're behind me, they're supportive", Sanders said. "I was a little upset that I didn't get to leave on a high note, but I guess he wants me hungry to play more".
Barcelona and Real Madrid (Spain), Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund (Germany), Juventus (Italy) and Leicester (England) are all through, with two clubs yet to join them.

Crean's departure ends the longest tenure in the in hot seat since Bob Knight's firing in 2000.

Or make that, the plays of the night. Ultimately, talent - like that of UCLA's Lonzo Ball or Duke's Jayson Tatum - matters most. They'll have to make it past some tough teams in the East first. Who is the Glue Guy for SC? The fiery former Kansas State boss has SC in the tournament for the first time since 2004, and it only took him four years to turn this nondescript, apathetic program into a victor.

In addition, Schefter reported that the deal is actually a one year deal with three years of options.

His overall numbers last season weren't great, but he's coming off an outstanding postseason with the Packers in which he caught 18 passes for 229 yards and 2 touchdowns, helping the Packers reach the NFC Championship game. Adding Cook would give the Seahawks potentially two tight ends who could form a very potent option for the Seahawks.

He also repeated his promise to rehouse the families evacuated from the Amona outpost at a new location.

Multiple gymnasts who were with USA Gymnastics at the time of these events have come forward to detail the abuses that they suffered. It's the largest group to date to start or join a civil action in connection with sexual assault allegations against the former Michigan State doctor .
Normally, I would say you were insane to pick against Butler in March. Coach Chris Hotlmann's team is methodical on offense. There is something about this Winthrop team, which is roughly 5-foot-7, that could make that pick more enticing and make the game more intriguing.
Bledsoe played in only 31 games previous year because he suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee that required season-ending surgery. He's been dominant all year. Since the All-Star break, Labissière has played in every game for the Kings , showing flashes of the potential that made him a first-round pick. Bledsoe has averaged a career-high 21.1 points per game this season, just a fraction below Suns leading scorer Devin Booker, and his 6.3 assists per game are also a career best.
The Rangers also played in the Stadium Series in 2014, defeating the rival New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders at Yankee Stadium in consecutive games.

During the regular season, UNCW was able to pick up wins by getting a big lead early. Unlike the Blue Devils one year ago, Virginia is a team that thrives on their defense.
What's more, general manager Bob Quinn has proven to be anything but bashful in free agency. Another big-name running back is off the market, as Latavius Murray has agreed to terms with the Vikings. Traditional "running down" backs like Peterson who want the ball 25 times per game - without providing pass-catching savvy - are getting phased out. Including fullback Jamize Olawale, their running back corps previous year included a fifth- and sixth-round pick and two undrafted free agents.
It's worth noting that the New York Giants Johnathan Hankins also is still available on the free agent market, as the best remaining nose tackle-although he reportedly is seeking at least $8 million annually on a new deal.

Wade's team-mate Jimmy Butler missed 11 games in March 2015 with a similar injury, leaving Wade anxious after speaking to him.

It seems race director, Eric Boullier has little optimism when it comes to McLaren and their chances if they stay with Honda. In the wake of what can only be described as a disastrous pre-season test programme which saw the Woking team complete just 1,229 miles over the course of the eight days - compared to Mercedes (3,170), Ferrari (2,765) and Williams (2,314) - the eight times constructors' champions head to Melbourne and beyond in worrying shape.

Princeton can match Notre Dame behind the arc, however, with their top three scorers all averaging between 12.6 and 13.7 points while shooting 41 or 42 percent from deep.
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue chuckled at the mention of his two best players colliding. "He wanted to go down to the D-League for a while to kind of get his legs and play and try to find a rhythm", Lue said. And in a related move, the team waived center Andrew Bogut. Just in terms of risk and potential reward, it's hard to fault Cleveland for taking a chance.
Manager Pep Guardiola's bold attempts to combat Monaco's unsafe forwards by going with an all-out attacking approach himself backfired as City failed to gain any meaningful first-half possession. In the second half we tried to win the game, we tried to play. That's the view of coach Leonardo Jardim, the architect of a staggering attack that has scored 126 goals this season.
