nsolation game at Northwest Florida Stat


Two of the most storied programs in the history of the womens game are absent from espnWs latest Bracketology projection, even though both teams were ranked among the top 15 in the preseason.They were also on opposite sides Sunday, Texas beating Tennessee 72-67 in Austin in what was an entertaining and well-played game (the second half, at least). It was a win the Longhorns desperately needed and an opportunity lost for the Lady Vols, who erased a 15-point deficit to lead at one point in the second half but still fell to 4-4.So how does a game that features two teams with a combined 13 McDonalds All Americans on the rosters fail to include at least one that is considered tournament-worthy at this point?The easy answer: record. These two nearly annual postseason participants are just a combined 7-8. The schedules the two programs play during the nonconference season are always tough -- but this season they have taken their toll more than usual, as have some injuries.In Austin, at least, there isnt too much need to worry. The current outside-looking-in status should change for the Longhorns. Texas is surely one of the 32 best teams in the country, which would normally put the team in line for an at-large berth.However, Bracketology is a snapshot of the season today. The committee doesnt offer at-large selections to teams with losing records. That would be unprecedented. So at 3-4, Texas simply cant be in the field at this point. Sure, three of those four losses are to teams in the top 10 (UConn, Mississippi State and South Carolina), but sub-.500 is sub-.500, even though Texas was considered a No. 2 seed in the preseason.With four home games -- theyll be heavily favored in each -- to finish the calendar year, the Longhorns will be well on the way to being included in our first projection of 2017. If they live up to the preseason billing as the second-best team in the Big 12 behind Baylor, the Longhorns could wind up hosting NCAA tournament games as a top-four seed. With the win over Tennessee, they also have a solid nonconference feather.The Lady Vols situation doesnt come with the same level of confidence. The fears that floated over Knoxville when Tennessees NCAA tournament prospects looked bleak at one point last spring should be returning.Even as Holly Warlicks club fought chemistry issues and stumbled through the meat of the SEC schedule in 2015-16, it still had big nonleague wins over Syracuse and Oregon State, two eventual Final Four teams, as a foundation. The Lady Vols dont have that this year -- and they wont. They lost four of their last five games, falling to every quality foe they encountered (Penn State, Virginia Tech, Baylor and Texas).Tennesees schedule wasnt even as tough this year, and with only Sundays matchup with Stanford at Thompson-Bolling and a mid-January Big Monday game against Notre Dame, the opportunity for quality wins might have to come in the SEC. If Tennessee goes 8-8 with a win at Missouri being its best -- like in 2016 -- the Lady Vols likely wont make the NCAA tournament this time. That would be a program first. (They were a No. 7 seed last season.)In Sundays loss to Texas, Diamond DeShields was efficient and Jaime Nared played what was perhaps her best game in a Tennessee uniform. But the Lady Vols really needed to finish off the comeback.That makes Sundays visit from the Cardinal as big as any mid-December game can be.

HOUSTON -- Mired in a slump that resulted in six losses over seven games, the Athletics lurched into Minute Maid Park on Thursday seeking to build momentum going into the All-Star Game break against a rolling club and in confines that had been anything but friendly to Oakland.Two close wins and one near-win later, the Athletics (38-50) are a victory shy of taking the four-game series against the Astros. Oakland had dropped five consecutive games in Houston entering the series, and the Astros had played exceptionally at home for more than a month.This is a team thats playing as well as any team in baseball the last couple of weeks, Athletics manager Bob Melvin said of the Astros. We knew coming in for four was going to be tough. It would be certainly nice to go out and win another game tomorrow. This is a tough place to win a series, especially a four-game series.Athletics left-hander Sean Manaea (3-5, 5.85 ERA) will attempt to clinch the series in his second career appearance against the Astros (47-41). Manaea made his major league debut against Houston on April 29, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks with three strikeouts over five innings while not factoring into the decision of a 7-4 victory.Manaea is 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA in two starts since being activated from the 15-day disabled list (left pronator strain) on June 29. He is 0-3 with an 11.66 ERA on the road with opponents batting .354 against him. Manaea has surrendered six home runs in 14 2/3 innings on the road and was the losing pitcher in his last start, an 11-4 setback at Minnesota.Left-hander Dallas Keuchel (6-9, 5.02 ERA) will help the Astros seek a series split entering the All-Star Game break. Sunday will mark his first appearance against the Athletics this season but the 13th of his career.Keuchel is 2/3 with a 2.92 ERA in 12 games (10 starts). His three-game winning streak is his longest of his up-and-down season and the longest since he closed last season on a three-game run.The Astros had won or split five consecutive home series but now stand to lose two on this homestand. Astros manager A.J. Hinch has leaned heavily on his frontline players -- Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa -- and planned to give Springer the day off Saturday. Springer didnt start but pinch-ran in the ninth inning of a 3-2 loss.As well as they have played in recovering from a 7-17 first month, the Astros appear to be dragging to the finish line of the unofficial first half.I didnt want to play Springer at all, Hinch said. I really did want a physical break for George all day. There wasnt an at-bat to have for George. We can win games without any one of our guys. Dont get me wrong, I love playing George Springer, but I think there are nine guys that are pretty damn good players that could have done enough to win. Mens Air VaporMax 2018.ca!

Hes working his butt off on the defensive end. Offensively, hes getting on the glass, getting offensive rebounds, and those are turning into points. Hes playing really confident right now and we need that from him.Drummond posted his 10th career 20-20 game in the Pistons 98-83 victory over the Bucks on Sunday.

He averaged a league-high 14.8 boards last season.Drummonds also been a big presence on the offensive end, even when hes not plucking offensive rebounds.

I look forward to just being out there with guys who can control the game and make plays, and when its my time, its my time.Anthonys 21.3 scoring average in 27 career games against the Pistons is his lowest among Eastern Conference opponents.New York won the season series 2-1 a year ago, with the home team prevailing each time.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch has leaned heavily on his frontline players -- Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa -- and planned to give Springer the day off Saturday. Springer didnt start but pinch-ran in the ninth inning of a 3-2 loss.As well as they have played in recovering from a 7-17 first month, the Astros appear to be dragging to the finish line of the unofficial first half.I didnt want to play Springer at all, Hinch said. I really did want a physical break for George all day. There wasnt an at-bat to have for George. We can win games without any one of our guys. Dont get me wrong, I love playing George Springer, but I think there are nine guys that are pretty damn good players that could have done enough to win. Mens Air VaporMax 2018.ca!

From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. Andre Drummond picked up right where he left off last season. Its now the New York Knicks turn to deal with the NBAs most prolific rebounder.The Detroit Pistons All-Star center reached the 20-rebound mark in the last two games. Not coincidentally, the Pistons have romped to double-digit victories over Orlando and Milwaukee.They close out a three-game stretch of home games against the revamped Knicks on Tuesday at The Palace.Defensively, he helps us out a whole bunch just by grabbing those rebounds and contesting shots, Detroit forward Tobias Harris said of Drummond. Hes working his butt off on the defensive end. Offensively, hes getting on the glass, getting offensive rebounds, and those are turning into points. Hes playing really confident right now and we need that from him.Drummond posted his 10th career 20-20 game in the Pistons 98-83 victory over the Bucks on Sunday. His 16.3 rebounding average through three games leads the league. He averaged a league-high 14.8 boards last season.Drummonds also been a big presence on the offensive end, even when hes not plucking offensive rebounds. His ability to finish on pick-and-rolls is leading to extra defensive attention, opening up space for his teammates.Hes playing really, really unselfish basketball, coach Stan Van Gundy said. Hes really trying to play winning basketball.Detroit (2-1) tightened up its defense after an opening-night loss in Toronto, limiting its last two opponents to under 40 percent shooting.Weve done a good job the last two games, Van Gundy said.

Courtney Lee contributed 16 points and backcourt partner Derrick Rose added 13.Rose, who missed a chunk of training camp attending his civil sexual assault trial in Los Angeles, is growing more comfortable with the offense.We looked like we knew what we were doing more often because we were able to have a couple of practices with Derrick, coach Jeff Hornacek said to the New York Post. Well continue to get better and better as the season goes on.Carmelo Anthony, who scored 20 points against the Grizzlies, is trying to adapt to having better offensive players around him.You dont see me complaining about it. You didnt see me out there making a face, Anthony said to the Post. Its something that I embrace. I look forward to just being out there with guys who can control the game and make plays, and when its my time, its my time.Anthonys 21.3 scoring average in 27 career games against the Pistons is his lowest among Eastern Conference opponents.New York won the season series 2-1 a year ago, with the home team prevailing each time.
