Those interested in watching Iverson's full speech can see it below. He credited Georgetown coach John Thompson, one of his three presenters, with "saving my life". Just a great man - and an old-school dude, too. "He was a thrill a minute". Posthumous honorees included 27-year National Basketball Association referee Darell Garretson; John McLendon, the first African-American coach in a professional league; Cumberland Posey, who also is in the Baseball Hall of Fame; and Zelmo Beaty, who led ...
The Blue Jays trailed 7-6 in the eighth when Kevin Pillar doubled with one out off Ryan Pressly (6-6). It was scored an RBI triple and an error. That allowed Upton to score standing up as a sellout crowd of 47,485 cheered wildly. The Twins battled back for two in the top of the seventh to put the deficit back at four. Angels 5, Tigers 0: Former Tiger Jefry Marte had three RBIs, and Tyler Skaggs allowed two hits while striking out six in six innings.
The German won the title on Saturday, beating Czech's Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. Before 2016, her four years as a fixture at the top of her game had brought her to three significant finals, just beneath the slams, and she had lost each one.
Reed overcame an early two-shot deficit and built a big enough lead on the back nine that some nervous shots and sloppy play didn't keep him from winning for the first time since the 2015 opener at Kapalua. The fourth pick will be after the Tour Championship, so that's another month to audition. Day, who also recorded the shot of the day when he drained a 71-foot bomb on the 15th, ended the event level with fellow Australian Adam Scott (71) and Gary Woodland (69) at seven under in a share ...
Jamie Murray, of the United Kingdom, left, and Bruno Soares, of Brazil, pose for a photo with the championship trophy after beating Pablo Carreno Busta, of Spain, and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, of Spain, to win the men's doubles. Final or first round, it's the same", Mouratoglou said. "I was prepared for anything, even if I would have lose the second set I would be ready for the third".
A student named Sam Crowder had this wonderful sign. "We're excited to have ESPN College GameDay coming to Louisville", UofL Vice President and Director of Athletics Tom Jurich said in the release. UPDATE: Sept. 10, 2016, 6:28 p.m. EDT According to a tweet from Venmo, over 2,000 people have sent money to Crowder. Another part of the charm of College GameDay is the fact that it offers the opportunity for off-the-cuff exuberance from the studio team, with Lee Corso the ringleader of ...
The squad that's able to set the pace for the majority of the game will, no doubt, have a greater opportunity to win. The game ended 59-41 in favor of the Horned Frogs. It's had mixed results to say the least. That was the second time that Hill won a season opener, each time with a different team. Hedlund came on to give the Hogs a 3-0 lead after the 8-play sequence.
He found Sam Rogers for a 7-yard touchdown pass that initiated scoring at the 4:32 mark of the first quarter. Tech squandered that momentum, however. Dobbs would connect with Josh Malone for a 38 yard score on their next possession. "We've been planning this trip since this game was announced (in October 2013)", Christel said.
Early in what would become a tight test of a U.S. Open final, Angelique Kerber sprinted forward to somehow reach a drop shot and scoop a down-the-line victor that landed in a corner of the court. Angelique Kerber arrived in her first US Open final blessed with the full understanding that she was more ready for a major title than she will ever be in her career.
Malone, who owns a sizable stake in Discovery, serves on the media company's board. A statement from the group on Wednesday evening read " Liberty Media has agreed to acquire Formula One , the iconic global motorsports business, from a consortium of sellers led by CVC".
You can forget about all of the talk about whether or not. But there's a good chance the blitz-happy Cardinals won't give him much time to throw. Do you think Jimmy was blasted by BB for his "smoother" comment? When Tom Brady went down with a torn ACL in the first game of the 2008 season, the Patriots still proceeded to go 11-5 SU without him.
Costa has made a strong start to the season, scoring twice in the Londoners' three Premier League games to date. Chelsea travel to Swansea on Sunday seeking to continue their flawless start to the campaign with Costa set to spearhead the attack, but Conte insists he must do so while treading a careful line.
I couldn't guarantee him games. Although he faced stiff competition for places in the Gunners midfield, it was expected Wilshere would be in Wenger's plans after an injury-free summer. "Because he can dribble, and he can penetrate", Wenger said . The 32-year-old terminated his contract with Espanyol last month after failing to receive assurances over playing time.
Do you agree with Nick Saban's comments? Saban confirmed the hiring of former Trojans coach Steve Sarkisian as an offensive analyst Monday. In case you forgot, Kiffin used to be the head football coach at the University of Southern California until he was sacked on the LAX tarmac in 2013.
Newton was on the receiving end of four helmet-to-helmet hits Thursday night in his team's 21-20 loss to Denver , but the Broncos were penalized only once. "I'm not against the military, I'm not against America", Marshall said. And Newton ran right over him. When you play that guy (Newton), he is such a great player.
Oscar then posted another picture of himself with his agent Giuliano Bertolucci and representative Kia Joorabchian. However, he was also prone to the odd howler and was widely seen as a weak link during his final few months at the club, meaning Chelsea fans may be anxious about his second coming.
He will be going for his third victory of the year, which would move him to the top of the FedEx Cup standings going into the finale at the Tour Championship in two weeks and make him a heavy favorite to win PGA Tour player of the year and the Vardon Trophy.
Buescher can't afford to drop out of the top 30 at Richmond or he won't make the Chase . Harvick was second, followed by Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano. SMOKE WILL BE MISSED: Tony Stewart will leave Sprint Cup without a victory at Darlington after finished 35th on Sunday night when his engine overheated and he went behind the wall.
Rodriguez recovered quickly and threw to first, beating Semien in the eyes of umpire Laz Diaz, who called the out. A's Manager Bob Melvin challenged the call, which was overturned after a quick review. Despite the no-decision and the team's tough-luck loss on Sunday, Rodriguez continued his outstanding run since being re-inserted into the Red Sox rotation.
I'm sorry if you think I'm unprofessional but I guess I'm working, I'm learning. "It was a great strategy, I think". It's tough because when he calls me unprofessional, he calls my coach unprofessional, he calls my physio unprofessional, all my team unprofessional.
For a league concerned about head hits and concussions, this was a violent start to the season. The problem with those statements is twofold. Newton was hit while throwing or rushing 17 times Thursday night, the second-worst beating he's ever taken and the only one where he was hit more came in an overtime game.
Jurgen Klinsmann found a way to not just win the group, but to continue a youth movement as the United States transitions from the Donovan/Dempsey/Bradley era into something different. Its place in the six-team final round was all but sealed prior to kickoff. First, though, they have to dispatch the Trinidadians. We could have managed the game better when we were 2-1 using our ball possession more effectively.
Chinese basketball star Yao Ming and his Class of 2016 Hall of Fame made their debut Thursday with orange inductee jackets for the upcoming Enshrinement Ceremony here. He said growing up he dreamed he would once be as good as the legendry Dr. J or Julius Erving .

Peter's Basilica during the colorful ceremony. Mother Teresa was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu Aug. 26, 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia. She joined the Sisters of Loreto at age 17 and was sent to Kolkata , where she taught at a high school.
As the NCAA rulebook lays out, schools can give out money for book purchases, but only the exact amount needed to buy the books. In total, 32 football players must serve a one-game suspension. "It is unfortunate Charleston Southern University only cares about itself as an institution", Cirone wrote. The protection of its students/athletes should be a number one priority.
As the Vikings stacked up victories on the way to the NFC North title past year, Zimmer frequently mentioned to the team and to the media the external skepticism surrounding their success, even if some of that was simply made up. The Vikings tied for seventh a year ago with 43 sacks, and there's the potential to land higher. But those hopes rested on Bridgewater, who reached the Pro Bowl last season as a second-year pro, continuing to develop as a pocket passer to complement the running of ...
One player who wished not to be identified said the meeting wasn't adversarial. Rodriguez should have escaped the third without allowing any runs. After falling out of first, dropping four-straight games and only recording one win in September before Saturday's game, there was a sense of panic within a fan base eager to taste the post-season again.
Pittsburgh dominated the first quarter and much of the second. Like the Pitt players, they put on some show for their fans. Fullback George Aston adds, "I like seeing all of the Penn State fans there so we could shut them up". He preferred to put the credit where it belonged. ■RUTGERS 52, HOWARD 14: Janarion Grant scored three touchdowns and Rutgers overcame an early scare in Piscataway, N.J., giving new coach Chris Ash his first win.
The sight of yet another Williams blowout victory over yet another overmatched opponent - Saturday's 60-minute 6-2, 6-1 annihilation of Sweden's Johanna Larsson in the U.S. That eye-opening self-assessment by Williams reminded of the days when Woods, after vanquishing yet another field of the world's best players en route to winning a tournament, would say he won with his "B" game that week.
Similarly, Hillary Clinton is not fond of the Common Core as well. It was also strategic: Donald Trump was out on the campaign trail drawing negative headlines almost every day, and there was no reason to risk a gaffe or controversial remark that might get in the way of that.
The Argentine has been in fantastic form since his long-awaited return from a series of wrist surgeries, giving Andy Murray an almighty scare when they met in the final of the Olympics in Rio last month. Now, though, Murray has a chance to become only the fourth man in the Open era to reach all four Grand Slam finals in a single season. I wanted too make sure, if I got ahead, that I stayed on top of him.
Lady Gaga has recorded a duet with British singer Florence Welch for her upcoming album. "I started to work on an idea for a song that I really wanted to do with a girl". "It's about wanting people to re-establish that human connection". I'm sure Little Monsters have a lot to look forward to with her new music projects.
Riding the momentum, she then broke early in the second to lead 2-1 before Maria was forced to take a time-out to be treated for injury. "She's had enough time off so whereas a lot of the other players seem to be a little exhausted after the Olympics, because it's been a really intense, demanding summer for players who have done well at the French and Wimbledon and the Olympics".
Sevastova, playing in her first Grand Slam quarter-final, never recovered from falling and turning her right ankle in the second game of the opening set. Now ranked at 74 in the world after a right ankle injury sidelined her for nearly three months, the Danish star hit just seven unforced errors in her win over Keys.
Liberty will initially purchase a minority stake in the world's leading motor-racing championship. The deal should give Liberty a boost as it races other media companies to secure premier content. "I see great opportunity to help Formula 1 continue to develop and prosper for the benefit of the sport, fans, teams and investors alike". As Bloomberg reports , Liberty Media's CEO called Formula One's digital operations "underdeveloped" in a conference call and said "that the company ...
