Dottin stand looked set to lift West Indies t


Its not often that Indiana plays a true road game in its non-conference schedule. Like most Top 25 powers, its going to play a lot of home games, or its going to play on a neutral floor when it does travel.So, when the No. 6 Hoosiers agreed to play Tuesday nights non-conference contest at Fort Wayne, it probably raised more than a few eyebrows. Summit League teams like the Mastodons rarely get TV league programs to venture into the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.But Indiana coach Tom Crean, while admitting his team could play in a difficult atmosphere, felt it was an opportunity that couldnt be passed up. It is the Hoosiers third of their four games in the Indiana Classic, and with the other three in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, this was one they could afford to play on the road.It was an opportunity to involve Fort Wayne and an opportunity to go on the road at the second-largest city (in Indiana), I think, and a great IU fan base up there, Crean said. Now weve got to go play the game. Its going to be easier said than done.Of course, if youre going to play a road game against the Mastodons, you might as well do it with the talent Crean has on his roster. Indiana (3-0) started the season in impressive fashion, beating Kansas, UMass Lowell and Liberty by escalating margins.Saturday nights 87-48 rout of Liberty featured a 55-20 rebounding margin against a team that started no one taller than 6-5. It also featured 60.9 percent field goal shooting, a terrific defensive showing that saw the Flames make just under 30 percent from the floor, and an unsightly 26 turnovers.Crean said after the game that the Hoosiers are simply trying to play too fast.Everythings correctible, he said. Their attitudes are great and well get those things fixed as we go. Some of our turnovers are coming from footwork. Weve got to continue to build on that.Indiana will have to value the ball a bit better against an opponent which is forcing 16 turnovers per game and scores 87.8 points. Fort Wayne (2-2) is coming off a 94-81 win Saturday night over UMass Lowell, a game that was also part of the Indiana Classic.The Mastodons will pin their upset hopes on 6-1 senior guard Mo Evans, who put up 33 points and 13 assists against UMass Lowell. Evans is averaging 23.3 points and 4.8 assists while canning 59.6 percent of his field goal attempts and 57.1 percent on 3-pointers.He has figured out how to play the position in our system, said Fort Wayne coach Jon Coffman.Three other players score in double figures for Fort Wayne, which was formerly known as IPFW (Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne) until the athletic department opted for a rebranding.By any name, it figures to have a tall order against the likes of James Blackmon (23 points), Thomas Bryant, Robert Johnson and OG Anunoby. But at least the Mastodons will get to stay at home for this opportunity. Larry Johnson Jersey.

West Indies Women 137 for 5 (Taylor 47, Dottin 35, Pandey 2-29) beat India Women 106 (Harmanpreet 43, Dottin 3-24, Anisa 3-23) by 31 runsScorecard West Indies Women took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series after India Women collapsed for 106 in their case of 138 in the second match in Mulapadu.The hosts, having limited West Indies to 137, did not recover from an early batting slump and their innings folded with the loss of six wickets for 33 runs. Only three India batsmen scored more than 15, with captain Harmanpreet Kaurs 43 the top score.

AUBURN, Ala. -- The Auburn Tigers face another Sun Belt Conference team hoping for similar results.The Tigers (2-2) have struggled offensively against everyone but their lone Sun Belt opponent so far this season entering Saturdays game against Louisiana-Monroe (1-2).Theyre fresh from a down-to-the-last-play win over LSU, which fired coach Les Miles a day later, and have lost competitive games to No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 5 Clemson. Then there was the Arkansas State game, a 51-14 win when the running game was unstoppable and quarterback Sean White threw his only three touchdown passes of the season.Auburns hoping to build on that 18-13 LSU win built on defense and six Daniel Carlson field goals. Coach Gus Malzahn handed over the play calling duties to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee in that game that ended when LSU couldnt get a final play off in time.It gives us all confidence moving forward, safety Johnathan Ford said.ULM might also have built some confidence from a 23-21 loss to Georgia Southern and had an open date to prepare for this game. Auburn has won all nine meetings by an average score of 44-9.Here are some things to watch for in the ULM-Auburn game:RED ZONE: Malzahns top offensive priority for the Tigers was fixing the performance in the red zone after promising drives kept stalling shy of the goal line. The team is 92nd nationally in red zone offense.Thats the number one thing we have to solve, Malzahn said. Were going to focus on that like crazy. Lets put it this way, you will see some different things in the red zone moving forward.CALLING PLAYS: This is the second game since Lashlee has taken over calling the offensive plays. The results were mixed against LSU, mainly because of the red zone struggles, but Malzahn thinks the time was right for the change.When you do something for 25 years its hard to change, but the time is right, he said. Im looking forward to transitioning that way.PETTWAYS STATUS: Auburns No. 2 rusher, Kamryn Pettway, has been nursing a bruised quad since facing LSU. If hes unable to play or has his carries limited, that could open the door for freshmen Malik Miller and/or Kam Martin to get their first significant action behind Kerryon Johnson.ULMs TOUGH ROAD: The Warhawks are playing their third straight road game since opening with a win over Southern. Theyve lost at Oklahoma 59-17 and fallen just short against Georgia Southern. So the players have some experience dealing with tough environments.I think they understand what were getting into, coach Matt Viator said.FACING AUBURNS DEFENSE: ULM quarterback Garrett Smith has thrown for 200-plus yards in each of the first three games and is also the teams leading rusher. Now, he faces a much-improved defense led by linemen Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams.Their defensive line is phenomenal and very athletic, Viator said.---AP College Football: www.collegefootball.ap.org Charles Leno Jr Jersey.

Its always been great matchups between us.The Cardinals get Tyrann Mathieu, their playmaking safety, back this week after the Honey Badger missed the last two games because of a shoulder subluxation. His addition could make the leagues top-ranked defense, which is allowing a league-low 287.4 total yards per game as well as the fewest passing yards per game (190.2), that much more dangerous.As good as Arizonas defense has been, Mathieu said it hasnt been good enough.I think we could play better, he said. Every game, theres like three or four plays where were just giving up touchdowns or giving up big plays. Weve got to continue to create turnovers, weve got to create more turnovers, weve got to find a way to score and shorten the field for our offense.Mathieu said the Cardinals will have their hands full with Ryan, Jones and Atlantas running back tandem of Davonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, who is finally healthy.Theyre a dominating offense, obviously, he said. Matt Ryan is playing tremendous right now, Julio, it goes without saying, and theyve got two running backs that are definitely going to try and hurt us in the run and the pass game, so our front has to play well, our linebackers have to play well and then on the back end, weve got to do a good of containing Julio.

BEREA, Ohio -- New England Patriots defensive lineman Jabaal Sheard represents one in a series of frustrating decisions by the Cleveland Browns the past few years, perennial Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas said Wednesday.Thomas compared the departure of young veterans like Sheard to gutting the teams middle class.Certainly thats one of the frustrations that Ive had over the years, Thomas said Wednesday. Thats the problem when youre constantly hitting the reset button. Guys that are really good players like that end up falling through the cracks or going to other teams because any time a new staff comes in basically they wipe out the middle class.They keep a couple of your superstars and then they want everyone else being a rookie so that they can try to develop them. When you keep doing that over and over again you really lose all your middle class on your team.The Browns roster that will face New England includes 17 rookies and four first-year players.Sheards tale seems to represent an entire group. New coaches and general managers come in and tend to dismiss the players signed or drafted by other coaches and GMs. Often, those players are allowed to depart.Sheard was drafted in the second round by the Browns when Tom Heckert was GM in 2011. He left via free agency in 2015 when Ray Farmer was GM. Sheard spent four years in Cleveland and played through an injury in 2014, but the Browns made no effort to re-sign him.New England and Bill Belichick signed Sheard the second day of free agency, and Belichick has raved about him since.A good kid, works hard, smart, very physically strong for his size, with good instincts, good awareness, Belichick said on a conference call with the Cleveland media. Hes a good football player.Thomas frustrations are understandable, especially when you look at the Browns defense, which will face the most experienced QB in the NFL Sunday in Tom Brady. The Browns have the youngest defense in the league, returned the fewest snaps from last season, and is playing the most rookies.Thomas rattled off several names of players drafted by the Browns who left, either by being released or in free agency: Sheard, cornerback Buster Skrine (free agent to the Jets), linebacker DQwell Jackson (released and signed with the Colts), tight end Jordan Cameron (free agent to the Dolphins) and receiver Travis Benjamin (free agent to the Chargers).He could have added offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz (free agent to the Chiefs) and free safety Tashaun Gipson (free agent to the Jaguars). Schwartz, Gipson, Benjamin and center Alex Mack all signed elsewhere on the first day of free agency in 2016.Safety T.J. Ward is another excellent example. The Browns signed Donte Whitner instead of keeping Ward. Whitner played his last season for the Browns in 2015, the same season Ward was helping the Broncos win a Super Bowl.Thomas said the situation is exacerbated when players who are drafted by the Browns leave after their first contract.Those are the guys, they disappear, Thomas said. Even though those are the guys you spent the time, you drafted them, spent the time developing them and right when theyre hitting stride, the peaks of their career, they end up going somewhere else and having great success for somebody else.Since he was drafted in 2007, Thomas has played for six coaches. He is on his seventh general manager. He has played every down since he was drafted and been to the Pro Bowl every season hes been in the league.Its always my job to do whatever I can to try to help my team win, Thomas said, and Ive always kind of been focused on doing my job to the best of my ability. Because thats the best thing that I can do to help my team win. Thats kind of what you just have to focus on when you lose great players like that.

eir three-game seeir three-game series Wednesday night with Philes Wednesday night with Phil


NEW YORK -- Michael Grabner wasnt being greedy. He and linemates Kevin Hayes and J.T. Miller were just dominant.Grabner scored three goals, Miller had a goal and two assists, and Hayes added three assists to lead the New York Rangers to a 6-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night.We had a a lot of chances as a line and could, maybe, have had a couple more, Grabner said.Theyre great players, Grabner said of his linemates. They have a lot of skill so I just tried to open up some room for them. Use my speed and it just worked tonight.Rick Nash and Jimmy Vesey also scored to help the Rangers win for the fourth time in five games. Antti Raanta stopped 31 shots.I felt good, Raanta said. I felt like I was seeing the puck (the) whole time and I was in the right position.Nash, Grabner and Vesey scored in a span of 2 minutes, 19 seconds midway through the second period to give the Rangers a 3-0 lead. Miller scored late in the second and Grabner added two more in the third to make it 6-0 with his third career hat trick.We kept coming in waves, Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi said. Line after line, `D pair after `D pair, just kept doing the same thing.Steven Stamkos spoiled Raantas shutout bid with about 3 1/2 minutes remaining, and Ben Bishop finished with 31 saves as the Lightning lost their third straight.Were concerned with the way were playing right now, Bishop said. Its not something we cant fix. Its just about watching the tape and getting better from it; fixing it now. You dont want to stay in this rut.After a scoreless first period in which New York outshot Tampa Bay 16-10, the Rangers scored in a flurry in the second.Nash broke through at 4:45 with his fourth of the season. Nash was sprung for a semi-breakaway by Nick Holdens pass up the middle to start the sequence, and the New York winger snapped a shot which beat Bishop glove side.Grabner increased the lead with a one-timer off Brady Skjeis cross-ice feed as Miller screened Bishop at 6:42. On the play, Miller collided with with Bishop, which prompted Lightning coach Jon Cooper to use his coachs challenge in order to see if there was goaltender interference. However, the video review showed Miller was bumped into Bishop by Valtteri Filppula.I thought the puck was pretty much already in the net by the time he pushed me, Miller said. I didnt think the goalie was going to be able to get over there.Just 22 seconds later, Vesey scored his team-leading fifth of the season to push the advantage to 3-0.Miller extended the Rangers lead with a tap-in with 1:50 left in the period.We put a few away in the second, New York coach Alain Vigneault said. Theres no doubt the speed and the pace was a factor.Grabners breakaway goal midway through the third increased the lead to 5-0, and his tap-in off a pass from Hayes with 5:13 left capped his first hat trick since signing with the Rangers in the offseason. It was also his first since Feb. 13, 2011, while with the Islanders.Breakaway after breakaway after 2-on-1, Cooper said. Not even the best goalies in the world are going to bail you out of that.All of New Yorks goals came at even strength. The Rangers were 0 for 5 on the power play, and Tampa Bay went 1 for 4.Game notes Tampa Bay RW Ryan Callahan made his season debut. Callahan, a former Ranger, had missed the Lightnings first eight games as he recuperated from offseason surgery on a torn labral in his right hip. ... Nikita Kucherov also played after missing Tampa Bays last game, a 3-1 loss to New Jersey on Saturday night, with an upper body injury sustained in the first period of the Lightnings 3-1 loss to the Canadiens in Montreal Thursday night. ...

Kelly Hrudey Jersey. - Levi Browns tenure at left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers is over before it even began. PHILADELPHIA -- For most pitchers, flirting with a no-hitter might be one of the most memorable days of your career. For Max Scherzer, it was just another day at the office.Scherzer didnt allow a hit until the sixth inning and he was dominant through eight as the Washington Nationals continued their mastery of the Philadelphia Phillies with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.Scherzer (15-7) allowed three hits and struck out 11 while walking one. He was perfect through the first four innings, striking out five consecutive batters -- all swinging -- between the second and third innings.He has taken a no-hitter into the sixth in nine of his 61 all-time starts with the Nationals, and has allowed just five total hits in his last two outings.Hey man, I mean thats why hes Max, Washington manager Dusty Baker said. You know we had a good chance to win when Max pitches, and theres a good chance of him going deep in the game.Ryan Howard, who got the start despite being 1 for 18 with 11 strikeouts against Scherzer coming in, hit an opposite-field two-run home run in the seventh inning to break up the shutout and pull the Phillies within 3-2.But Scherzer closed the door from there, striking out three more in the seventh and eighth en route to his 15th win of the season.I knew I was throwing the ball well, I knew I had all the pitches working, I knew I could go out there and keep different looks going multiple times throughout the lineup and really sequence guys right, Scherzer said. When Im able to throw all my pitches for strikes it really allows (catcher Wilson Ramos) to do his job back there and come up with the right sequence.Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 37th save, getting a strikeout and inducing a big game-ending double play after issuing a leadoff walk.Freddy Galvis and Odubel Herrera collected the only other hits for the Phillies, who have lost six of eight to fall 12 games below .500. They have dropped their last eight games to first-place Washington, which matches the team record for consecutive losses vs. the Nationals/Expos franchise.We need to improve our plate discipline, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Were just not getting hits. But Scherzer was dominant, youve got to give him credit. Hes a tough cookie.Scherzer, who pitched two no-hitters last season, didnt allow a runner to reach base until Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp walked with one out in the fifthh.dddddddddddd Galvis ripped a double to right-field to lead off the sixth to break up Scherzers no-hit bid, but was picked off second base by Scherzer to end the scoring threat.The Washington ace also had a sacrifice-bunt RBI in the fourth after Ryan Zimmerman walked and Danny Espinosa ripped a single.The Nationals staked Scherzer to an early lead in the first inning. With two outs and nobody on, Daniel Murphy doubled before scoring on a double by Bryce Harper, his 19th RBI in the last 19 games. Ramos brought Harper home with an RBI single to put the Nats ahead 2-0.He can smell it, Baker said. When he gets some runs, its usually a shutdown inning. He doesnt give it right back. It usually takes a while for them to score off of Max.Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff (9-13), who walked just six batters in his last eight starts coming in, issued three walks and allowed five hits and three earned runs through six innings.Scherzers double-digit strikeout game was the 12th of the season, setting a Nationals record. He improved his career record to 7-1 against the Phillies, including a 6-0 mark since he joined the Nats in 2015.HOWARDS STILL GOT POPHowards homer was the 20th of the season and the 377th of his career, tying him with Jeff Kent and Norm Cash for 73rd on MLBs all-time list. His next home run will tie him with Matt Williams for 72nd place.He has 10 career 20-homer seasons, the second most in Phillies history behind only Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt (14).HOME-PLATE COLLISIONThe fourth inning ended when Espinosa was thrown out at the plate on a dart from Phillies right fielder Aaron Altherr. On the play, Espinosa collided with Rupp at home, which seemed to anger some Phillies.Afterwards, Mackanin admitted that he didnt think he had to bowl him over, but Howard laughed that Rupp probably liked it and thats baseball.OWNING PHILLYThe Nationals, who opened their six-game road trip with a 4-0 victory over the Phillies on Monday, are 7-1 at Citizens Bank Park this season.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Peter Bourjos missed his second straight game after getting hit in the left wrist by a pitch Sunday.UP NEXTThe Phillies and Nationals wrap up their three-game series Wednesday night with Philadelphia LHP Adam Morgan (1-8, 6.50) opposing LHP Gio Gonzalez (9-9, 4.25).

Khulna Titans 151 for 7 (Mahmudullah 44, Taijul 3-18) beat Barisal Bulls 129 (Mushfiqur 35, Shafiul 4-17) by 22 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsKhulna Titans climbed to the top of the BPL points table after a 22-run win over Barisal Bulls. As was the case in their four previous wins, it was their bowlers who made their moderate total look very competitive.Shafiul Islam led the five-man bowling attack to defend their 151 runs comfortably. The paceman took four wickets while Junaid Khan and Mosharraf Hossain took two each as Barisal capitulated for 129 in 19.3 overs.Barisals chase was always going to be interesting as they had a batting line-up to compete with Khulnas discipline. Jeevan Mendis, promoted to open the innings, struck four fours on his way to 21 before falling to Shafiul in the fourth over. His opening partner Fazle Mahmud was earlier trapped lbw for a duck in the second over.After Shamsur Rahman was caught at long-on cheaply, Barisals main batsmen Shahriar Nafees and Mushfiqur Rahim added 43 runs for the fourth wicket. Nafees batted at a slower pace, hitting two fours in his 28 off 35 balls. Mushfiqur held the chase together till the 16th over before he top-edged a pull after making 35 off 23 balls with four fours. Thisara Pereras failure with the bat made it harder for Barisal who folded in the last four overs of their chase.After they had decided to bowl, Barisal were given early breakthroughs by Taijul Islam who struck twice in the fifth over to remove the Khulna openers Hasanuzzaman and Andre Fletcher. Both batsmen holed out to Abu Hider at long-on.Mahmudullah ensured that they recovered from an ordinary Powerplay, adding 53 for the third wicket with Riki Wessels. He slammed three sixes through long-on and two fours in his 26-ball 44, before becoming Taijuls third victim, caught at point. Next ball, Shuvagata Hom was run-out after a mix-up with Wessels with both batsmen ending at the non-strikers end.Wessels, who had contributed just five runs to the third-wicket stand, found a higher gear as he struck four fours and a six over long-on in his 29-ball 40. Like Mahmudullah, Wessels wicket also hurt Khulna, who added 39 runs in the last five overs. Rollie Fingers Jersey.
