Most of the cars were able to make it by clean, except for Jimmie Johnson , who got into the back of Keselowski and sent him spinning into the infield grass. This saw them battle for the lead in the final segment, with a crash for Corey LaJoie causing the caution that proved pivotal to the race result. By this time, Keselowski had raced back into contention and was also able to pass Truex on the final stretch to finish second.
Memphis would go on to lose to UCLA in the championship game. Why they'll lose: Well, maybe people will remember the Boucher injury in the Final Four if Bell gets into foul trouble, or the Ducks struggle to establish an inside presence.
Dana Altman's team proved it could play, beating Kansas in Kansas City to reach the Final Four . Gonzaga has spent the last 19 years riding the high from climbing the midmajor mountain. Even the Lawrence police department was making jokes at his/the team's expense. It seems appropriate in a year when the Final Four will make its first stop in Arizona, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, the first FF in the west since Seattle in 1995, that the first two teams to qualify ...
UNC will be challenged by the Bulldogs' scrappy play style, but ultimately come out on top 71-68 as the better team. Villanova's Kris Jenkins hit a shot at the buzzer in the title game, only seconds after Tar Heels guard Marcus Paige made a double-clutch 3 to tie it.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady spent some time at Augusta National with the 2015 Masters champ, and posted a photo on his Instagram account on Monday of himself, UnderArmour CEO Kevin Plank and Augusta National member Jimmy Dunne with Spieth on the famous Par 3 12th hole.
We have been very fortunate in the last three years that we won most of the races. He grew up with Ferrari which is the next best team. Valtteri Bottas finished his first race with the Silver Arrows down in third, yet the performance could not take the shine off Vettel's first race win for 18 months.
Hamilton's early pitstop that brought him out behind the slower Red Bull of Max Verstappen certainly worked in Ferrari's favour. But for now Hamilton's only focus will be negotiating the short drag down to turn one to win in Australia .
Jim Buss has now agreed to step down as a trustee, and according to the Times , will be replaced by younger sister Janie. Jeanie Buss successfully thwarted a hostile takeover attempt by her brothers and, according to the Los Angeles Times , has won control of the team.
Victory boosted England's hopes of reaching next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and national team boss Gareth Southgate has talked up the prospects of the 34-year-old making the cut and being named in his tournament squad. "It's good to be back", Defoe told ITV Sport. "Bradley is doing well and has cheered up after having some very special visitors", his family wrote on his Facebook page.
Zouma, told beIN Sports , as quoted by Get Football French News , that he would be open to a loan move next season ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Sporting stitches above his left eye, Crolla told reporters that in the third round against Linares , he had aggravated a rib injury picked up in training, with trainer Joe Gallagher nodding when his fighter was asked if the rib was broken.
This is the first time since 2011 (VCU) the Final Four features a team making its first appearance. It seems only fitting that the Ducks will play for a chance to reach the national championship game (and possibly play for the title) at the same stadium where the OR football team played their first national championship game at back in 2011.
If they failed to match the contract terms, the Patriots would get the higher of the Saints' two first-round picks (No. 11 overall) in return. Kraft defers to Belichick on all football decisions, so it's unlikely he would comment on Revis 2.0 unless there was something to it.
However he lauds the 18-year-old prospect that has been getting compared to him during this stunning breakthrough campaign. They also hope by slapping a £130million price-tag on his head, it will be enough to scare off all interested parties.
OR stopped its practice early to watch the end of fellow Pac-12 school Stanford's win over Notre Dame. Consider the nation "woke" to OR and Gonzaga as title contenders following impressive Final Four runs. Along with that, UNC has to win the turnover battle. The Bulldogs defeated the West Virginia in a tight match 61-58. It's been rolling at Gonzaga since Mark Few took over in 1999.
He ran it so far past the hole that the ball actually ran off the green. Since last April, Johnson has won five tournaments, including his first major championship at Oakmont and a pair of World Golf Championship events, and assumed the No.
He underwent a MRI on his injured left knee, which ultimately revealed a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise. Durant went through his first on-court workout since the injury on Tuesday before the Warriors defeated the Mavs in Dallas.
The Trump Organization may try to oppose the law citing privacy concerns, but the appearance of intentional secrecy could further endanger his sinking approval ratings . He has made a trip to a Trump-owned property eight weekends in a row since the inauguration. Trump returned to the club at 11:04 a.m. on Sunday, though this time he departed after less than an hour.
He continued by explaining that; "But every time he talks, he always shows his appreciation to the club, he is happy, he is happy with the players, his life in Madrid is very lovely, and he is very happy". 'But Antoine is a great player and I think he can go even higher and I hope for him that he'll do it. "I would never force him to say". 29-year-old Gameiro joined Atleti this season after a hitting 29 goals for Sevilla last term, and revealed the secret to the Madrid club's recent ...
So it's hard to understand. It's now come to the point where an admission of the efforts to blackball Colin Kaepernick may be obvious. When you get down to it, Kaepernick is a capable quarterback who raises lots of money for charity and was just standing up (or kneeling down) for a cause that was deeply important to him.
Wales boss Chris Coleman defended his players - indeed, he said Bale wanted to appeal against his caution, something he could only do on the grounds of mistaken identity - but O'Neill remains adamant that both tackles were nasty. "For those Irish fans who have absolutely slaughtered me on Twitter all day today, it's great for me to come on here to set the record straight - I never defended Neil Taylor".
The No. 7 Gamecocks are the clear underdogs in the match against the No. 4 Gators, but don't discount them just yet. "I've seen how it struck a lot of top players". Chiozza says this with authority because the Gators have faced the Gamecocks twice this season. "And I'm sure SC feels that way as well". Showalter, a senior, forced overtime with a leaping 3-pointer off one leg with 2.1 seconds left in regulation - pointing to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the crowd - as the ...
Whenever there's that much money on the line and that much intrigue being sparked, it would seem like the only logical move would be to do the illogical and just go ahead and make it happen. It's whatever I say. But, Rogan says, if you throw boxing rules out the window and fight according to MMA rules, it's no contest: he's putting the odds of a McGregor victory at a staggering one hundred million to one.
They are in the Sweet 16 for the first time since the field expanded to 64, having beaten Duke in the second-round at Greenville, South Carolina , along the way. "West Virginia also has the same defense". On Friday night, eighth-seeded Wisconsin plays fourth-seeded Florida, while third-seeded Baylor meets seventh-seeded SC.
Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli described the 34-year-old as a "fantastic player" and an inspiration to his younger players teammates. According to The Daily Mail and The Guardian , Jermain Defoe will start up-front, and England will change their formation from Tuesday's one-nil loss to Germany in Dortmund.
Those answers could be construed as elusive rhetoric from any other player, but in Johnson's case, it's just the plain truth. "You had better ask them", was the characteristically low-key reply. At Austin Country Club, we got Johnson and Jon Rahm, the young Spanish star, in the 18-hole final, and the spectacle will be remembered for much more than Johnson winning 1 up.
Davis' 14-point first quarter marked the 29th time this season he has scored in double figures in the opening period. New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said he won't rush Cousins back, even with the postseason gap narrowed. He also pulled down 13 rebounds. We're not worrying about other teams right now. Since that point, however, Utah has improved with each passing year, and it has now established itself as a team capable of doing damage in the Western Conference playoffs.
He was named the SEC Player of the Year, as well as garnering All-SEC First Team and All-Defensive Team accolades from the league coaches. Gonzaga, North Carolina and OR were ranked second , sixth and ninth in the AP poll before this NCAA Tournament began.
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". The original allegation made to Ukad was that the package delivered by then-British Cycling coach Simon Cope to ex-Team Sky medic Dr Richard Freeman in 2011 contained anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone.
Though it might seem unlikely, the Japanese Hideto Tanihara had taken Johnson all the way. "Today was a tough day, a really long day". "Anything can happen. He won three of four holes on the back nine to trail by just one hole. With each tournament, the 32-year-old strengthens his argument to be the favorite to win the 2017 Masters.
I'd rather the player I'm defending attempt long shots from just inside the arc rather than burn me with high percentage shots inside the key. UCLA's Lonzo Ball can dominate without scoring. "Just catch and shoot". The Cats are 17-0 when they hold opponents under 70 points. Who happens to be the future. And speaking of Milwaukee, Greg Monroe ranks as a top 100 player on our per game Player Rater and I don't think his 2016 stat line is out of reach for Swanigan next season.
After a week-long inspection, authorities selected six cities across the country including Mumbai and New Delhi for the U-17 matches, Federation Internationale de Football Association said. It will be also the first time an Indian team will play in a Federation Internationale de Football Association competition. "From the beginning, there was the need to touch the soul of the young people of India with additional activities and we just did not take it as a World Cup", he said.
He caught him high and I think he was in tears afterwards. On the same evening, Iceland bolstered their chances of reaching Russian Federation with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Kosovo in Group I and Heimir Hallgrimsson's side will look to make it back-to-back victories by beating the Irish in this match.
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. If there is a club in the Premier League which has the gumption to do what other clubs consider insane, that club will be Manchester United. Earlier this month he played a key role as the Nou Camp side progressed against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, overturning a ...
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. I felt it worked for us. "He's a player we really like. We don't have a lot of players in the country who can beat people in one v one situations", he said.
