Wholesale Baltimore Ravens Jerseys .Guard Diana Taurasi and center Brittney Griner were ejected in the third quarter of Friday nights home loss to the New York Liberty, ending a three-game winning streak for the Mercury.Two of those victories had come on the road -- at the hot Washington Mystics and at Eastern Conference-leading New York.Because of those ejections, Phoenix (7-10) might have a chip on its shoulder against Atlanta, which has lost five consecutive games to drop to 8-8.Griner was tossed from Friday nights game after arguing her fourth foul. WNBA scoring leading Tina Charles had been her main defensive assignment.Brittney, she gets hacked all the time, Mercury coach Sandy Brondello said after the game.Tina Charles, I mean shes a great player, but shes getting calls I dont think she should.

(STATS) -- Wofford linebacker Michael Roach was released from a Tennessee hospital and returning to campus in Spartanburg, South Carolina, on Saturday, two days after going into cardiac arrest during the teams season-opening game at Tennessee Tech. Authentic Sam Jones Jersey .The junior from Kenosha, Wisconsin, collapsed on his teams sideline during the third quarter. He was later diagnosed at Cookeville Regional Medical Center with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes in the United States. Typically, only five percent of people survive after going into cardiac arrest.Roach had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator inserted on Friday.This was an undiagnosed heart condition that I have had most likely since I was born as it is caused by a genetic mutation, Roach said. It causes the heart walls to thicken and during exercise it can result in loss of blood flow and the rhythm to get off beat.I was on the field for the 13-play drive by Tennessee Tech and my heart was beating very fast, but it was not pumping blood. I went into cardiac arrest and for approximately 45 seconds had no pulse and was not breathing. The athletic trainers and doctors were in the right place at the right time to do what was needed.In a university release, Roach thanked the athletic training staffs from the two schools, the hospital doctors and staff, and the Tennessee Tech community.

The recently retired Stern was elected Friday to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and will be enshrined with the class of 2014 on Aug. LOS ANGELES -- Adoree Jackson thinks the only good things about a 46-point loss in a season opener are the 11 regular-season games that Southern California still has left to play.So the Trojans returned to work this week with a determination to make sure their humiliation at Alabamas hands wont send a talented USC team into a tailspin.A lot of people think that its the end of the season for us after our first game, but we just want to go out and show them that one game doesnt define you, said Jackson, the Trojans speedy defensive back. I think were hungry to get out there and play. Were pretty disappointed with the loss and how it happened in that fashion.The Trojans (0-1) get their first chance to make amends in an early-starting home opener against Utah State (1-0) on Saturday.USC couldnt hang with the defending national champions while breaking in a new starting quarterback and two new coordinators in Clay Heltons first season opener as head coach. And while much went wrong in the final three quarters for the Trojans, they still emerged with a perversely positive outlook on their progress toward the Pac-12 season.I think its just a good experience either way, said quarterback Max Browne, who got his first start out of the way without a serious injury. Obviously you want to win, but the experience moving forward, it was good to have that environment, I guess youd say.USC hasnt won a football game since Nov. 28, when it beat UCLA at the Coliseum. The Trojans have lost four of five in all, and while their current three-game skid -- against Stanford, Wisconsin and Alabama -- isnt exactly against a bunch of chumps, USC expects to be those programs equal, not their stepping stones.While Tuesdays practice was a bit chippy, the Trojans finished Wednesdays workouts with their usual upbeat enthusiasm, the defense bouncing and cheering on the sidelines while competing in drills with the offense.I think the guys are responding fine, Jackson said. Were still out there practicing like weve been practicing. Nothing has really changed. Were still doing the same preparations. You dont want to change just because aa game like that happened. Wholesale Broncos Jerseys . Weve got to do the same things coming in.Here are more things to watch when the Trojans open their home schedule in the stadium they now share with the Los Angeles Rams:NO PUSHOVERS: This is USCs easiest game in a murderous September schedule on paper, but the Aggies are no free pass. Utah State has the talent and history to make the Trojans month even worse, with nine starters returning to an offense that scored nearly 30 points per game last season. Devante Mays rushed for 208 of the Aggies 428 yards rushing in a season-opening win over Weber State, while quarterback Kent Myers smoothly took over the starting job after filling in extensively for Chuckie Keeton in recent years.CENTER LOSS: Brownes job got harder with the news that USC center Toa Lobendahn is out for the season after tearing two ligaments in his right knee during the Alabama game. Lobendahn, who didnt miss a play against the Tide, will redshirt this year. Nico Falah will take over the snapping duties against Utah State, while guard Chris Brown might move over at some point.DOUBLE COVERAGE: JuJu Smith-Schuster, USCs top receiver and a second-team All-American, was noticeably frustrated by Alabamas tight coverage in the opener, where he managed only one catch for 9 yards against the cover-2 defense. He could face similar coverage all season, but Browne believes he can still get the ball in Smith-Schusters hands. Theres also another plan for those double-teams: If thats the case, lets make Darreus Rogers a household name, Browne said of the Trojans No. 2 receiver.TOUCHDOWN QUEST: USC didnt get into the end zone against Alabama, and Browne is determined to remedy that problem early and often. Utah States defenses under coach Matt Wells have usually been solid, but the Trojans are determined to handle their pressure on Browne. They slant and angle a bunch, bring some pressure, so theyll be a little different, Browne said. I have to make sure were sound in our protections. ' ' '  
Collingwood, Manchester United, the New York Yankees - there is no in-between, you either love or loathe them. Adidas Brett Pesce Jersey .High-profile Collingwood recruit Sharni Layton hopes that transfers to the AFL clubs new national netball league team.The Magpies raised eyebrows with an aggressive recruiting drive for their new netball team and Layton, the Australian Diamonds captain, was one of the big signings.It sets up an obvious local rivalry with the Vixens.I hope that it translates across (from the AFL) to the netball club - we want that rivalry, she said.We want everyone talking about netball and creating that tension, which I think brings a whole new excitement.Yeah, were going to have people against us, but thats why we love in netball and thats what we love in sport.Collingwood now boast four teams, their AFL and VFL teams, plus the netball side and the AFL womens lineup.They are calling it the new Collingwood and Layton said it is a massive step forward for womens sport.Its really exciting and for us, the opportunity to be at Collingwood is phenomenal, she said.Were not used to having these facilities, but then also to be part of something bigger is really exciting.Having that community gives it a higher purpose.Theres a lot of expectation coming in and we just expected that, being part of the Collingwood brand, as the boys have copped all these years.Were just happy to take that on.Layton fronted a Collingwood media conference on Tuesday with their AFL captain Scott Pendlebury and womens AFL star Mo Hope.The Magpies womens AFL team was to train for the first time on Tuesday night.As Scott mentioned, we never go out for anything less than a premiership, Layton said.Collingwood isnt just one of the best sporting clubs, its one of the best businesses in Australia.Hopes situation is different, given she is a pioneer for the AFL womens league.Ive come from just playing local football and you come into Collingwood and its mind-blowing, she said.Its all pinch yourself - Im in the gym, Pendles is on the treadmill and Im not sure how to train.There are all these amazing footballers and netballers around me - you get distracted.Its just every kids dream.Pendlebury said the addition of the womens teams had added to the environment at the club.Its a great opportunity for the girls to be able to interact with us, learn from us, especially from the football side of things, he said.The netball girls as well, in here working, its a great environment and you can see all the hard work.The gym is always packed ... there are always people in here trying to get better.

Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. The Memphis Grizzlies have become the masters of winning close games and games that reach overtime. Memphis also has mastered the Philadelphia 76ers recently.Memphis has won eight straight over the 76ers and would certainly enjoy getting an easier win on the second night of a back-to-back when the teams meet Tuesday night at FedEx Forum.Memphis is 10-0 in games that have been decided by five points or reached overtime. The latest was Mondays 110-108 double-overtime thriller in New Orleans.Marc Gasol scored 28 points and hit the game-tying 3-pointer with seven seconds left in regulation and the game-winning 17-footer over Anthony Davis with 1:15 left in the second overtime. Troy Daniels added 29 points on seven 3-pointers as the Grizzlies improved to 14-8 this season.People keep talking about it, but most of our games are close, Gasol said. I cant remember a blowout. We feel comfortable in those situations because we trust our defense and we dont panic.One of the Grizzlies other overtime games was a 104-99 double overtime win in Philadelphia on Nov. 23. In their latest win in the series, the Grizzlies rallied from an 11-point deficit as Mike Conley nearly had a triple-double of 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.Conley shot 3 of 17 when Philadelphia last beat the Grizzlies on Dec. 26, 2012 in Memphis. He played in seven games against the Sixers since but will miss his fifth game since injuring his lower back.Andrew Harrison has started for Conley and scored 12 points but shot 3-of-13 Monday, creating the need for big production from Daniels. Daniels has scored 69 points and hit 16 3-pointers in his last three games.Were just trying to find any way to win, Daniels said. Were just trying to scratch and crawl and win.The Sixers will be content if it is a close game, especially if they win. Philadelphia is winless since Nov. 21 and the collapse to Memphis two weeks ago began a seven-game losing streak.Four of those losses have been by single diigits and in each of those close losses, the Sixers have held a double-digit lead at some point. Sebastian Aho Jersey. The latest instance was Mondays 106-98 home loss to the Denver Nuggets. Philadelphia held a 10-point lead in the second quarter but wilted after halftime by shooting 38.5 percent and committed 14 of its 19 turnovers.Joel Embiid had 16 points and five blocked shots but in the second half, the rookie center was 3-of-10 and committed three turnovers.Were used to seeing Joel have superhuman nights, Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. It looked like his balance was off, and there were times where there were hands on balls (by defenders). Its just part of a young mans growth. I dont think we need to read too deeply into it.Embiids next chance to rebound from the rough second half will not be Tuesday. Since he is coming off missing two seasons following a pair of foot surgeries, Embiid has rested on the second nights of back-to-backs and in other instances.Philadelphia is 1-6 when Embiid has sat. The last instance was Saturdays one-point loss to the Boston Celtics when Jahlil Okafor scored 15 points as the starting center.Okafor did not play Monday due to an illness and will not play Tuesday.Without Embiid and Okafor, Richaun Holmes along with Ersan Ilyasova and Dario Saric will serve as Philadelphias primary big men.You get thin real quick, Brown said prior to Mondays game. Isnt it funny how life changes? First you have too many bigs. Now you dont have any. When we talk tomorrow, were going to look around and not have a lot of bigs.Besides Okafor, Robert Covington (left knee sprain, flu symptoms) and Jerryd Bayless (left wrist ligament) did not play and will not be available Tuesday.With our group, when you have no Jahlil, no Covington, theres just zero margin for error for whatever we are talking about, Brown said.

Ive only played 10 games in the NBA, JRich has played about 80 and Justise played the whole season, but we really only have about two years combined under us. With D-Wade leaving, we lost like 13 years of experience which we were trying to use and piggyback off.

Finding Carl Haas in an IndyCar garage was a simple matter of looking for the man with the cigar. His name was just as easy to spot in the record books as well.Haas, co-founder of Newman-Haas Racing with late actor Paul Newman, has died. He was 86.His company, Carl Haas Automobile Imports Inc., posted a statement on its website Thursday saying Haas died on June 29 at his home surrounded by family.Newman-Haas established itself as one of the most successful open-wheel teams, hiring Mario Andretti as its first driver. Among its other drivers were Michael Andretti, Nigel Mansell, Paul Tracy, Sebastien Bourdais and Christian Fittipaldi. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway issued a statement Thursday describing Haas as one of the most influential men in motorsports for nearly a half-century.Newman-Haas cars made 30 starts over a 28-year span at the Indianapolis 500 from 1983-2011, with six top-five finishes. He also fielded teams in Can-Am, Formula 1 and NASCAR.Known for his omnipresent cigar and a savvy business sense, Haas teamed with Newman to form Newman-Haas in 1983 and build a long record of success with the legendary Andretti leading that impressive driver roster.NHR won 107 IndyCar races and eight CART titles, including the final four in Champ Car, CARTs successor. Andretti won the 1984 title along with 18 races with the team over the final 12 years of his legendary career.Overall, Haas teams won 16 championships and more than 140 races over a 44-year career as an owner.He touched many lives and many careers with his involvement in the sport, Andretti said Thursday by phone.

I felt I should have some say in matters with the team and the engineers, and they gave me that.Though Newman was the face and oftentimes the voice for their successful racing operation, Haas was happy doing the everyday work in the background.

But make no mistake, Haas respected Newmans business mind and included him in every facet of a venture Andretti called a marriage made in Heaven.The pair endured some dark times as well.Haas and Newman were among a fierce group of team owners devoted to open wheel racing on road and street courses. That philosophy clashed with owner Tony George, whose family owns Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the marquee Indianapolis 500 and considered that race as the cornerstone for an oval-based series.Andretti recalls Haas and Newman eventually coming around to the concept of racing on an all circuits, but it wasnt easy.Paul and Carl were primarily devoted to road racing because they were both racers, Andretti said. They came to embrace ovals even if they didnt totally like it. When Tony started his series all he had was Indy, while CART had everything but Indy.Paul and Carl were loyal to who they were with, and held on to their ideal as long as they could.George eventually formed the rival Indy Racing League in 1996 and created a bitter open wheel racing split that damaged both circuits. The rival series eventually reunified in 2008 with Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing being one of the final teams to join, but the sport has struggled to regain its stature.Andretti said Haas remained an unpretentious, likable personality who was never far from his cigar unless he was asleep.Fellow owners felt the same way.IndyCar and NASCAR team owner Chip Ganassi tweeted, R.I.P. Carl Haas. You were a mentor, a leader, and great friend to many including me. You will be missed my friend. ' ' '

TORONTO -- Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikita Kucherov, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Vladimir Tarasenko scored on consecutive shots and Sergei Bobrovsky made 42 saves as Russia beat Team North America 4-3 in a fast-paced, end-to-end game Monday night at the World Cup of Hockey. Andre Roberson Jersey .Russias offense came alive with four goals in a 6:14 stretch during the second period to chase North America goaltender Matt Murray, who stopped the first 15 shots he faced. Backup John Gibson only faced four shots and stopped them all.No. 1 draft pick Auston Matthews, Morgan Rielly and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored for North America (1-1), which outshot Russia 45-23. Bobrovsky was brilliant as Russia (1-1) bounced back from an opening loss to Sweden.We knew we cant lose the game, Russian captain Alex Ovechkin said. If we lose the game were obviously out of the tournament. Back to back, I think we played a solid second and our penalty-kill guys, Telegin, blocked the shots, Bobrovsky. You can see everybody sacrificing, and we get the result.The game was a showcase of the best of the sport, with firewagon hockey, plenty of goals and saves.The kids put on a show on an early shift as Matthews stole the puck from Ovechkin and Connor McDavid skated around Pavel Datsyuk to set up a 2-on-1 rush. Matthews finished it off for his first of what should be many goals at Air Canada Centre.Murray bailed out turnover after turnover by his teammates, including a couple from defenseman Seth Jones. North Americas defense had to fill several minutes with Aaron Ekblad out with an upper-body injury, replaced by Jacob Trouba.North Americas penalty kill worked like a charm and gave Murray a break, but the dam burst at even strength midway through the second period when Jones missed his whack at a loose puck. Namestnikov got the rebound, banked the puck off the post and Murrays skate and in, beginning the Russian onslaught.After Ovechkin clanked a shot off the post behind Murray, a wide-open Kucherov pounced on a loose puck to give Russia the lead. Within a few minutes, Kuznetsovs goal flying down the right wing and Tarasenkos from the left faceoff circle made it 4-1 and ended Murrays night.Murray jammed his thumb in the second period, but coach Todd McLellan said that wasnt why he was pulled. He called the goals allowed team goals because North America lost its way for 10 minutes.I thought we were hesitant, McLellan said. We looked slow and thats not the way we play.Once North America got its composure and the puck back, it continued to bombard Bobrovsky with shots. Rielly scored late in the second period and Nugent-Hopkins early in the third. It failed to score on an extended 5-on-3 power play and couldnt beat Bobrovsky on 6-on-4 in the final minute with Shayne Gostisbeheres shot hitting the post as time ran out.Thats not the way to play the Russians, but I thought we did a good job of responding and really making a game of it, McDavid said.North America wraps up round-robin play Wednesday against Sweden, while Russia faces Finland on Thursday.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at .

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Classic Empire made the most of all 1,234-1/2 feet of the Churchill Downs stretch while signaling that hes a horse with a future.Classic Empire surged by heavy favorite Recruiting Ready in the final strides to win the 115th running of the Grade 3, $100,000 Bashford Manor Stakes by three-quarters of a length Saturday night. The colt appeared to relish the added ground he got in the six-furlong stakes for 2-year-olds, putting him in a promising position as distances begin to stretch out for the division.The way that he breezes and trains in the morning, hes much more effective when hes able to go out and relax and settle into stride, said Norm Casse, the head assistant to his father, Mark. Sprinting is obviously not something where you get to do that. So going forward, I think hes definitely going to be much more effective around two turns.Recruiting Ready, who was coming off a 10-1/4-length debut win in May in which he flirted with a Pimlico track record, was away swiftly from the outside post in the field of nine, and quickly cleared the field through an opening quarter-mile in 21.76 seconds. He still led by a measured length and was moving easily through the half in 45.07. Meanwhile, Classic Empire ($11.40), who had ducked in at the start while breaking from the rail under Julien Leparoux, was seventh after a quarter-mile and had worked his way up to fourth after a half, but was still 6-1/2 lengths back of the leader.Classic Empire shifted into the three path to take dead aim on Recruiting Ready, who leed by 3-1/2 lengths and looked home free in midstretch. Jerami Grant Jersey. But the eventual winner simply inhaled ground inside the final sixteenth to run down the favorite -- also convincing Leparoux that he will be better going longer.The other one left there quick, but I knew my horse was running, Leparoux said. At the quarter pole, I knew he was going to run good, but I didnt know if he was going to catch him or not. The first time he won at 4-1/2 furlongs, it was almost too quick for him, and he still won. Today at six furlongs, he liked it a bit more.The top two were well clear of the rest of the field, with Tip Tap Tapizar, nine lengths back in third. The final time was the second-fastest in the races history, 1:09.39.A son of classic sire Pioneerof the Nile, Classic Empire was a $474,000 purchase by prominent Casse client John Oxley out of last falls Keeneland September yearling sale. The colt came into the Bashford Manor off a 1 1/2-length debut victory on May 4 at Churchill Downs, in which he looked to finish full of run after also being slow to get into stride.Hes still a little shy, and you could tell when he broke, he broke in a little bit, Norm Casse said. But it ended up working out to his advantage -- the pace set up for him, and he was able to run down a really talented horse today. I really have a lot of respect for the horse that he beat. And hes something we can all look forward to. ' ' ' 
BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Renault will not introduce its next major step in power unit performance until 2017, the French manufacturers engine boss Remi Taffin has said. Frank Robinson Jersey .Updates over the winter and a major step at the Monaco Grand Prix have seen Renault close the gap in power to rivals Mercedes and Ferrari this year, with Red Bull making significant progress up the grid as a result. However, when asked if another big update would come this season, Taffin said the next Monaco-style step would come over the winter.I think it will be next year, he said. The big step we will have will be next years engine, race one. Until we get to the end of the season now we will be working on the specification we have now, trying to extract the most out it, but there wont be any more lets say big step as we had for race one and six.Taffin said the positive impact of the most recent updates had been satisfying for the team but there is still a long way to go.Where we were coming from was a difficult year last year and now we can see the improvement on track and everything we got out from the factory to the track was working well, so that was a good step forward, either first race or actually Monaco/Montreal specification we introduced. Its all working well. I just have to say were on it, but we have a good way to go. Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys .

Though he has finished second in the last three races, his healthy championship lead after his win at the Japanese Grand Prix means his destiny has been in his own hands for a long time.His 12-point lead means he will win the title if he finishes ahead of Hamilton, regardless of what position they are both in. However, if he finishes behind his teammate, the permutations get a lot more interesting...What Rosberg needs to doIf Hamilton wins, Rosberg must finish second or third to secure the title. If he finishes fourth, he will finish level on points with his teammate but lose the title on countback (In this scenario, Hamilton would have 10 wins to Rosbergs 9).If Hamilton finishes second, Rosberg can finish as low as sixth and claim the title. As with above, finishing seventh in that scenario would lead to a tie on points with Hamilton winning for countback on third positions (In this scenario, they would be equal on wins and second place finishes, while Hamilton leads on third places 4-2 ). Cheap Orioles Jerseys. .If Hamilton finishes third, Rosberg can finish as low as eighth to win the title.If Hamilton finishes fourth or lower, Rosberg will win the championship regardless. If Hamilton finished fourth, the best he could hope for would be Rosberg retiring, with the 12 points for fourth bringing them level on points. However, in that scenario, countback would look as follows: 1st places: Rosberg 9-9 Hamilton, 2nd places: Rosberg 4-3 Hamilton. Therfore, Rosberg would win the championship on account of having more second-place finishes.Therfore Hamilton must finish on the podium if he wants any chance of winning the championship. ' ' '
