The five-time Olympic champion described the claims he may have broken anti-doping rules - which he strongly denies - as "horrible" and "the worst thing to be accused of when you're a man of my integrity".

"Just catch and shoot". The Cats are 17-0 when they hold opponents under 70 points. Who happens to be the future.

Obviously it will still be tricky trying to lure the Brazilian global away from the Nou Camp but the report claims that United will offer Neymar a staggering £21m-per-season if he makes the move to Old Trafford.

His professionalism was great for some of the other players to see. I would have put my house on him scoring at some stage against Lithuania. He's had a positive impact on everybody.

Clemson made it to the Elite Eight in 1980. This is just the second time in history that the SEC has had three teams make it to the Elite 8. We're supposed to be a bad league.

SC has been under the radar all season, though the Gamecocks have had a stranglehold on the No.
On the 356-yard par four eighteenth hole, Rahm blasted a drive that went a whopping 382 yards, rolling straight through the middle of the green and coming to rest a few yards over it.

Arguably the Tigers' best team lost to CT on a buzzer beater in 1990 in the Sweet 16, and Clemson's 1997 squad made it to that same point before bowing out against Minnesota. "I usually listen to "My Way" the day of the game", Martin said.

SEC East rival Florida - which advanced to the Elite Eight courtesy of a dramatic buzzer beater. Baylor leads 4-2, including 3 straight wins. And, apart from a three-season spurt of success from 1970 to 1973, SC has been a perennial also-ran with just six NCAA tournament victories in its history.

Dominant? Sure, just don't call it easy. After halving the first two holes, Johnson did what he had done all week and raced to a big lead before the players hit the turn.

In many ways, Johnson's ability to be below-the-radar but present inside the Celtics locker room, isn't all that different than what he does between the lines every night for Boston . So the third quarter ended with Boston in front 83-73. A rare goaltending call on a free throw against Miami that stood up under review gave Boston a four-point lead with 20.6 seconds left.
