Update on the latest sports

first_imgUpdate on the latest sports The university says it has received 22 calls to a hotline since Wednesday when it announced an investigation into Anderson. Police started investigating the onetime director of the University Health Service and physician for the football team in July 2018 after a former student athlete alleged abuse by Anderson in the 1970s. Officials have acknowledged that some university employees were aware of accusations against the doctor prior to a 2018 complaint that led to a police investigation.Anderson died in 2008.TOKYO VIRUS-OLYMPIC TEST EVENTSVirus limits next Tokyo Olympic test event to Japanese-only — A higher share of revenues for the players; the current number is 47 percent.— Even an expansion of the playoffs, something the NFL has been seeking for years.Commissioner Roger Goodell suggested back in 2015 that increasing the postseason field to seven teams in each conference was in the works. The owners could unilaterally add a wild-card team in the AFC and the NFC, but are willing to make such a move part of a new CBA.Also being considered is a second bye week to go with a 17th game, although almost certainly not for the 2020 season. The expansion of the playoffs easily could occur this year, however.In other NFL news: Realmuto will get a raise from $6.05 million to $10 million instead of his $12.4 million request.Arbitrators Gary Kendellen, Jeanne Charles and Richard Bloch made the decision a day after hearing arguments.Obtained from Miami just before spring training last year, Realmuto hit .275 with 25 homers and 83 RBIs, earning his second straight All-Star selection. His hearing was the first for the Phillies since Ryan Howard beat Philadelphia in 2008 and was awarded $10 million — then arbitration record —- over the team’s $7 million.A decision is pending for Arizona pitcher Archie Bradley, whose case was argued Tuesday. Phillies reliever Héctor Neris is the lone player still scheduled for a hearing.In other MLB news: MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jake Layman was finally cleared Thursday to return to practice, with his absence at 39 straight games and counting because of a sprained left toe.Star center Karl-Anthony Towns, however, does not have that clearance. Nor has there been clarity yet revealed by the Timberwolves about how long his sprained left wrist will keep him out.The Timberwolves will play Friday against Boston without Towns, who missed the last game prior to the All-Star break on Feb. 12. Towns missed 15 games earlier this season with a left knee injury.Layman, who’s in his first season with Minnesota, was hurt Nov. 18 at Utah. The Timberwolves said Layman will be re-evaluated in one week, meaning he’ll sit out at least four more games. The 6-foot-8 Layman was averaging a career-best 10.5 points over the first 14 games, on a career-high 35.2% shooting from 3-point range.TENNIS-FEDERER-SURGERY Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditMLB-NEWSPhils beat Realmuto in arbitration; teams lead players 7-4UNDATED (AP) — The Philadelphia Phillies won their arbitration case against All-Star catcher J.T.

Wimbledon starts June 29.NCAA-PITTSBURGH-VIOLATIONSPitt hoops, football placed on 3 years’ probation by NCAAINDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The University of Pittsburgh football and men’s basketball programs have been placed on probation for three years by the NCAA. The organization says both programs committed a series of violations between 2015 and 2018. The violations centered around both programs exceeding the number of allotted practices during that time.Former men’s basketball coach Kevin Stallings was given a three-year show-cause order for his role in the violations. Stallings was fired in 2018 and is currently out of coaching. He must sit out 30% of his new team’s games if he is hired during the three-year window of the show-cause order. Stallings is currently out of coaching. Now the onus is on the players, who have a conference call Friday.With the league eager to reach a collective bargaining agreement with the players in the next few weeks — the current deal runs out in March 2021 — team representatives were summoned to New York to discuss the NFL’s proposal.Among the items in that proposal, according to several people familiar with the negotiations but speaking anonymously because they are not authorized to release such information:— A 17-game schedule, which always has been a stumbling block in talks with the NFL Players Association. More roster spots per team would be a must for the players.— A reduction of the preseason. — New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino has been shut down from throwing for the second consecutive spring training, this time because of right forearm soreness. Severino, who turned 26 on Thursday, was sidelined until the final weeks of the regular season last year.  Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Severino has been feeling on and off discomfort since October and has a loose body in his right elbow that the manager said has not been an issue. New York already expects to be without left-hander James Paxton for the first two months of the season following back surgery on Feb. 5.— Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco felt discomfort in his right leg during a spring training workout and is having tests. The 32-year-old Carrasco made an inspiring comeback last season after being diagnosed with leukemia, The Indians say he won’t work out Thursday and the team plans to provide an update on his status on Friday. If Carrasco is out for any period, it will put further strain on Cleveland’s pitching depth. Right-hander Mike Clevinger recently underwent knee surgery and will be out until mid-April.NFL-NEWS (UPDATE)NFL owners approve negotiated terms for new labor agreementNEW YORK (AP) — NFL owners voted to accept the negotiated terms for a new collective bargaining agreement on Thursday. Dan Cage, who was the director of basketball operations during the 2016-17 season, was also given a three-year show-cause order. The NCAA penalized Cage for refusing to participate in an enforcement interview about his involvement in coaching activities as a noncoaching staff member.UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN DOCTOR-INVESTIGATIONUniversity of Michigan investigates doctor sex abuse claimsANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Another man has come forward to publicly accuse a late University of Michigan physician of sexual abuse decades ago.Gary Bailey said Thursday that Dr. Robert E. Anderson molested him during a medical exam in 1968 or 1969. Bailey says he filed an official complaint with the university at the time but never heard anything back. — Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry has elected to have hip surgery after initially opting not to have the operation. Landry was bothered by his hip all last season, but still finished with a team-leading 83 catches for 1,1174 yards and six touchdowns. He visited a specialist after the season and decided not to have the procedure before changing his mind after playing with pain in the Pro Bowl. The Browns say Landry’s surgery was performed on Tuesday in Minnesota. A Browns spokesman says the team expects Landry to make a complete recovery “for the 2020 season.”— Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen will become a free agent for the first time in his 11-year career. He’s coming off a bounce-back season for the longest-tenured player on the team. Griffen has chosen to exercise his option to void the remaining three years on his contract, according to a person with knowledge of the decision. The move will clear more than $13 million off the books for 2020 for the salary cap-strapped Vikings. Griffen had eight sacks in 15 games in 2019 after a rough season the year before.— An attorney for New Orleans’ Roman Catholic archdiocese is strongly defending the New Orleans Saints’ public-relations help in dealing with the clergy sex abuse crisis. He says the legal effort to unseal emails between them is aimed at trying to shame those “who had the audacity” to back the church. The remarks came in a court hearing today on the Saints’ request to keep those emails confidential. The hearing comes amid claims the Saints joined the church in a pattern of concealing sexual abuse — an allegation the team denies. A special master is not expected to rule immediately.NBA-TIMBERWOLVES-INJURIESLayman’s long-term injury near end, back at Wolves practice Associated Press February 20, 2020 TOKYO (AP) — A test event for the Tokyo Olympics scheduled for later this month that would have involved some non-Japanese athletes is being revamped because of fear of the spreading virus from China.It’s now limited to only Japanese athletes, with the Olympics just over five months away.The two-day test event opens at the new Ariake Arena on Feb. 28 and is relatively obscure — a Paralympic test for boccia, a precision ball sport similar to bocce and related to lawn bowling. It’s the first of 19 remaining test events before the Olympics are to open on July 24.They will be watched closely, as will the start of the torch relay on March 26 in Fukushima, a prefecture devastated nine years ago by an earthquake, tsunami and the meltdown of three nuclear reactors.The test events may reveal what effect the spreading virus is having on Olympic preparations, and the ability of non-Japanese athletes to safely enter Japan.last_img read more

Despite best finish of the year, Trojans still want more

first_imgThe No. 9 USC men’s golf team registered its best finish of the year at The Prestige at PGA West tournament but left its coach wanting more.The Trojans finished the tournament tied for fourth with UCLA at 8-over 872, but the high finish did little to ease USC coach Chris Zambri’s frustration with his some of his players’ early struggles.“I’m not happy with our finish because we have guys in our lineup who are not playing their best golf,” Zambri said. “When you’re 20 you should be getting better every year and playing the best golf of your life every year, and we have some guys right now who aren’t doing that.”Part of what frustrated Zambri is his team’s continued inability to beat teams ranked higher than them. The Trojans have finished behind a team ranked outside the top 25 only once this season but have also failed to beat the top teams in their tournaments.“We still got beat by the best teams in the field [this week],” he said. “We just need guys to play up to the expectations that we have for them and if they do that I really do think we are one of the better teams.”No. 17 TCU blew away the field at The Prestige with a blistering 14-under 850. The Horned Frogs finished 16 strokes ahead of the runner-up, No. 4 Stanford. No. 3 Washington finished third at 5-over 869.Zambri said USC has to start winning tournaments if it wants to take the next step as a team. Beating only the opponents it should beat is not enough anymore.“After a while you start saying, ‘Well this isn’t a coincidence it’s just who we are,’” he said. “We have to get better so when we have what we think are semi-off weeks we finish second, not fifth or seventh.”One player who finally played up to his coach’s expectations was sophomore Steve Lim, who finished tied for third at 4-under 212.“He did everything well and he played like I thought he was going to play this year,” Zambri said. “I think it’s just the start of some really good things because so many parts of his game are really solid.”Lim had played poorly in the first two tournaments this year before putting it all together last weekend, thanks in part to some new equipment.“He didn’t play a lot of tournament golf over the summer and he also showed up with a driver that didn’t fit,” Zambri said. “He’s got a driver now that fits him great and he drove the ball really well.”Lim was also pleased with his finish but credited Zambri more than his new clubs for his improvement.“Coach Zambri is a great coach,” Lim said. “He’s a tour veteran, he’s played golf almost 30 years and he knows a lot about golf. He really has good ideas for all of us [as individuals].”One particularly long talk with Zambri helped the sophomore get his season on track. Lim said he expects to build on his latest performance going forward.“It boosts my confidence for the next tournament,” he said. “I feel great right now. It can’t be any better.”The rest of the team might not feel the same way. Freshman Martin Trainer played solid golf for the third consecutive tournament but finished tied for 18th at 3-over 219. Fellow freshman Sam Smith tied for 37th at 8-over 224.Junior Matthew Giles continued his early-season slump by finishing tied for 42nd at 9-over 225. The returning All-American has placed outside the top 30 in each of his last two tournaments. Junior Bo DeHuff tied for 47th at 10-over 226 in his first tournament action of the season.The rest of the USC golf team also played in the tournament as unattached entrants. Junior Daniel Park tied for 14th at 2-over 218 while freshman T.J. Vogel and Stewart Hagestad finished tied for 31st and 42nd, respectively.last_img read more
