New York Post + 295 other

St. John’s had no trouble clearing its first true hurdle of the season. Following a pair of meetings with low-major teams, St. John’s was unfazed by a leap in competition, putting on its best performance of the young season in a 79-56 win over Nebraska at Carnesecca Arena in the third annual Gavitt Tipoff Games. Shamorie Ponds led the Red Storm with 22 points, seven rebounds and five assists, while Justin Simon had 13 points and 12 rebounds. Tariq Owens added six points, nine rebounds and six blocks. Though teams may have a blueprint on how to beat St. John’s, the undersized Red Storm can still rip it to shreds. Outmatched by the Cornhuskers’ bigger frontline, St. John’s played like a team determined to overcome its biggest weakness, winning the battle on the glass, 49-39, while grabbing 16 offensive rebounds. Facing their first power program opponent, St. John’s fell behind 5-2, with Nebraska’s Isaac Copeland easily backing down Marvin Clark for an jumper in the paint, before swatting Red Storm leading-scorer Marcus LoVett, who missed his first five shots. Shamorie Ponds, who scored 22 points, drives to the basket during St. John’s win.Robert Sabo Though St. John’s started cold, opening 4-of-15 from the field, the Cornhuskers were even worse, going nearly five minutes without a point to surrender the lead for good. St. John’s excelled at forcing turnovers for the…

Los Angeles Times + 4 other

John Stones thinks he knows why Manchester City is off to the best start in Premier League history. And it’s not just the unprecedented $29-million spending spree in the summer transfer window, the payroll of $321 million or a lineup so deep Raheem Sterling, whose seven goals are third most in the league, has started in only half the team’s games. According to Stones, the clothes the team wears also may have something to do with it. “A lot of it is down to preparation,” the second-year City defender told English journalists. And under coach Pep Guardiola, much of that preparation has focused…

South Africa beats lackluster France 18-17 in scrappy test

The Washingon Times + 1 other

SAINT-DENIS, France (AP) - France coach Guy Noves was given the tall order of winning three of the four rugby matches this month and has done the opposite. The 18-17 loss to South Africa on Saturday followed two to New Zealand and heaped the pressure on Noves heading into the last home match against Japan next weekend. It could prove to be also his last in a tortuous two-year reign that his seen him fail to improve France much since he took charge after the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Noves reacted with an equal measure of anger and sarcasm when asked if he was worried for his future. “With a…

The Washingon Times + 3 other

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Defending champion Matthew Fitzpatrick shot a second straight 5-under-par 67 to secure a one-stroke lead halfway through the European Tour’s season-ending Tour Championship on Friday.

The Washingon Times + 1 other

It has become customary for England coach Eddie Jones to rip into the Wallabies ahead of rugby tests against Australia, where he was born and where he was previously coach of the national team.

It was left to the Wallabies to throw the barbs in the build-up to the fifth game between the rivals in the last 18 months, with England having come out on top on the previous four occasions. Aus…

Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.” LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hall were all caught shopliftin…

New York’s most important football game this weekend is in L.A.

New York Post + 1 other

He has 15 touchdown passes and three interceptions in the past six games. Darnold is also going to have the Pac-12 title game and possibly a New Year’s Six bowl game to showcase any improvements he’s made since September. There’s also been speculation that Darnold, a redshirt sophomore, isn’t a slam-dunk to enter the draft. If he went back to school for another year, he’d hope to emerge as an Andrew Luck- or Peyton Manning-type, who each became the No. 1 pick a year later than expected, and less like former USC quarterback Matt Barkley, who fell from the po…

The Washingon Times + 1 other

LONDON (AP) - Crystal Palace was denied a crucial English Premier League victory after a controversial penalty earned Everton a 2-2 draw on Saturday. Roy Hodgson’s Palace twice took the lead at Selhurst Park with goals from James McArthur and Wilfried Zaha, but the hosts were frustrated when they felt Oumar Niasse dived to earn a penalty and then scored Everton’s second goal by halftime.

Survival specialist Pulis under pressure as West Brom slumps

The Washingon Times + 1 other

Tony Pulis‘ status as one of the most respected coaches in English football is based on his reputation for being a guarantee against relegation. His record of never having been demoted in 25 years - and more than 1,000 league games - as a manager is what defines Pulis, and that’s why he is suddenly under so much pressure at West Bromwich Albion. Heading into Saturday’s home match against Chelsea in the Premier League, West Brom is one point above the relegation zone - in 16th place in the 20-team division - and on a run of just two wins in its last 20 league games stretching …
