PARIS -- Michael Schumachers spokeswoman says he is "still in the wake-up phase" and that his medical situation is unchanged. More than two months after a ski crash left the Formula One champion hospitalized with severe head injuries, his agent Sabine Kehm said Friday that the process of pulling him from the medically induced coma is still taking place. Schumachers family has released few details about his condition. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were too deeply embedded. Neurologists not involved in his treatment say the chances of a full recovery for the 45-year-old are increasingly slim, given the comas duration and the extent of his injuries. <a href="http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Black-17-Philip-Rivers-Womens-Jersey/">Chargers Philip Rivers Grey Jersey</a>. -- The Grenadiers de Chateauguay will play for gold after defeating the Toronto Young Nationals 6-1 on Saturday in the Telus Cup mens midget hockey championship semifinal. <a href="http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Customized/">http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Customized/</a>.J. - Think of the Super Bowl and you think of excess: Big money, big parties, big crowds and an even bigger mess left behind when the circus leaves town. <a href="http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Black-17-Philip-Rivers-Womens-Jersey/">http://www.chargersstore.us.com/Black-17-Philip-Rivers-Womens-Jersey/</a>.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Mired in a season-high losing streak, their offence struggling and shooting guard Jason Richardson slowed by a bruised knee, the Orlando Magic coaching staff made a tactical decision late last month when they decided a little rest might do their 31-year-old starter some good. It seems they were right. Jason Richardson scored 17 points, and Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu each added 14 as the Orlando Magic used a big second half to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 102-89 on Monday night. Richardson, coming off a season-high 31 points in the Magics win at Milwaukee on Saturday, did all his damage in the first three quarters against Minnesota before sitting out the fourth. He said afterward he was not hurting, but simply deferred to teammate J.J. Redick. Redick had seven points in the final period, and led all bench scorers with 14 of his own. "J.J. had it going and they just let him play it out, and he did a great job and hit some shots," Richardson said. "He had it going, so I didnt mind sitting out the fourth quarter." Richardson said the two games he sat out Jan. 30 and Feb. 1 have reenergized him unlike a previous three-game stretch he sat out in mid-January with a bone bruise on his knee. He is averaging 18 points per game in his seven games since then, up from the 9.9 he was averaging for his latest respite. The Magic are 5-2 since his return. "It feels good," he said. "I wasnt healthy when I came back from the first time. I still had the bone bruise, but the competitive side wanted me to be out there and play. Thats just how I am, I hate sitting down. Once I got those two days off, I really got the rest I needed." While Richardson has voiced repeatedly his willingness to be the person the Magic count on late in close games, they didnt need him down the stretch Monday, hitting 12 of 30 three-pointers for the game and with all five starters reaching double figures. They also had just nine turnovers -- only three in the second half -- which kept Minnesota from offering any real threat in the second half. Orlando has now won two of its last three games and earned its seventh straight victory over the Timberwolves. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy still saw things that continue to concern him "Were making three-point shots, enough of them, but were not making 2-point shots and its a real struggle right now," he said. "But when you only turn it over nine times, it gives you a chance. Twenty assists and nine turnovers -- thatll work." Kevin Love led Minnesota with 19 points and 15 rebounds, and Nikola Pekovic added 16 points and 13 rebounds. The Timberwolves turned it over 18 times, which led to 17 Magic points. Minnesota lost its fourth straight game, with its next opportunity to stop the skid coming Wednesday when it hosts Charlotte. "Youve got to go out and play," coach Rick Adelman said. "Theyre not going to stop this season because weve lost four in a row. Weve been in games, but we just havent been able to put one away." Magic centre Dwight Howard picked up his fifth foul early in the fourth quarter and could only watch as his teams 20-point third-quarter lead was cut to 90-82 with less than six minutes to play on a pair of free throws by Derrick Williams. Orlando was able to bounce right back without their big man, though, thanks to back-to-back 3-pointers by Redick and Nelson. Turkoglu then took a miss by J.J. Berea coast to coast on the next possession and swished a jumper from the wing that made it 98-82. The Timberwolves never threatened the rest of the way. "We just have to stay together and really have a sense of urgency to win," Love said. "We have to continue to build as a team and right now were not doing that. Everybody, including myself needs to step up. Coach Adelman and the coaching staff can only do so much. Its really on us to break the barrier and have a breakthrough with this team." Howard drew headlines Saturday after a comment following the Milwaukee win Saturday that alluded to a desire to want the ball more late in games. He continued to defend that stance Monday after a foul-riddled night in which he finished with 11 points and seven rebounds. It only adds more intrigue to the daily soap opera that has followed him since a preseason trade request that continues to be on the table with the All-Star break and the March 15 trade deadline looming. "My point is I want to be the guy to carry the team," Howard said. "I dont think thats bad. Thats something I want to be. I want to be the guy in the fourth quarter who carries the team. Not just score the ball, but make great plays." He insists that the comment is not a knock on his current teammates, though, and that hes happy with their latest resurgence. "You look at the Lakers, Kobe (Bryant) is that guy," he said. "Carmelo is that guy for the Knicks. And Jordan was that guy for the Bulls. And thats what I want to be. I want to be great. Great players want to take that lead. ... Thats what I want to do for this team. Thats it."

"Were not happy with our standing and how weve been playing," said Rock GM Terry Sanderson.  "Its a move we felt we had to make and we were able to get a good young goaltender in Nick Rose coming in. LOS ANGELES -- Matt Barnes is back playing with the Los Angeles Clippers, and it looked as though hed never been away. Wearing goggles to protect his surgically repaired left eye, Barnes contributed 13 points off the bench, including three 3-pointers to help the Clippers win their fourth straight, 112-91 over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. "Love having him back," said Blake Griffin, who had 24 points and 16 rebounds. "Hes a guy who has a positive impact even if he doesnt score a basket." Barnes played for the first time since undergoing three procedures to repair a torn retina in his eye. He got hurt on Nov. 18 when Memphis Zach Randolph inadvertently hit Barnes in the eye. "I feel good," he said, adding that he doesnt like the goggles. "I got elbowed and the goggles gave me a bruise. I dont see myself wearing them long." Clippers coach Doc Rivers said of Barnes, "He looked good. He just gives us something extra -- the toughness, the cutting, the basketball IQ. His shot looked good." Jamal Crawford scored 27 points, hitting six 3-pointers as the Clippers led all the way. Chris Paul added 10 points and 11 assists. DeAndre Jordan had 12 rebounds. "Whenever we set the tone in the first quarter it kind of carries us," Crawford said. "Chris and those guys threw some good passes. I had the easy part shooting the ball." Wilson Chandler scored all of his 19 points in the first half and Timofey Mozgov had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Nuggets, who lost their third straight. Ty Lawson added 13 points as Denver was held to 35 per cent shooting. "We just got thoroughly outplayed by a better team. They pretty much did what they wanted to do to us on the boards. Inside, outside, and on the break, our energy was bad," Nuggets coach and former Lakers star Brian Shaw said. "Were not in a good place right now. Weve got to do some soul searching and really get back to the basics if we want to right the ship." Nuggets starter Kenneth ;Faried rolled his left ankle at 8:45 of the first quarter and didnt return.dddddddddddd The Clippers made 13 3-pointers, improving to 21-2 since the start of last season when they make at least 11. They hit five 3s in the third, including three by Crawford, who had 11 points in the quarter. Griffin went coast-to-coast for a dunk in the third, when Los Angeles stretched its lead to 79-60. "Thats a tough team," Chandler said. "Youve got to try to take something away on the fast break, but theyve got the layups, theyve got the lobs or theyve got the open man for the 3, so its kind of tough." Grifffin and the other starters got some rest to start the fourth before he, Crawford, Paul and Jared Dudley returned midway through. Griffin made four straight free throws and Crawford scored to restore the Clippers lead to 20 points with under five minutes to go. Griffin provided two highlights in the second. He dribbled the length of the court, drawing oohs from the crowd as he went behind his back three times before doing a 360-degree spin and hitting a layup. It didnt count, though, when Lawson was called for a foul. Griffin made 1 of 2 free throws to give the Clippers their largest lead of the half, 44-27. "I dont even know what I was doing," Griffin said, smiling. Barnes missed and Griffin flew in and slammed the ball down for the one-handed putback that kept the Clippers ahead by 11. Darren Collison got in on the act, too. Barnes tipped the ball as the Nuggets inbounded and Collison tossed up a 22-foot desperation heave that went in at the buzzer, keeping the Clippers ahead 56-43 at halftime. Collison scored 13 points. NOTES: Nuggets F Jordan Hamilton returned after serving a one-game suspension for throwing a punch in Tuesdays loss to Oklahoma City. ... Clippers G J.J. Redick is expected to get the cast off his right hand early next week. Hes recovering from a broken hand and torn ligaments in his wrist. ... The Nuggets fell to 1-4 in the second half of a back-to-back set. They were beaten by Phoenix on Friday. ' ' '

BOULDER, Colo. -- For a team that built its reputation on stifling defence, fourth-ranked Arizona sure showed some offensive prowess Saturday night. The Wildcats routed the Buffaloes 88-61 for their first win in Boulder since 1973. They did it by holding Colorado without a bucket until 9:50 remained in the first half, then by shooting 84.6 per cent in the second half. "They whipped us tonight every which way you can whip a team," Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. Freshman Aaron Gordon shook off a poor performance at Utah last week by scoring 21 of his season-best 23 points in the second half and Nick Johnson added 20 points for the Wildcats, who made 22 of 26 shots after halftime. "Weve had a few shootarounds here, we felt comfortable in their gym, it all just clicked for us," Johnson said. It was a rare breather for the Wildcats (25-2, 12-2 Pac-12), who scrapped their way through a series of close games since beating Colorado by 12 in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 23, before close losses at Cal and archrival Arizona State dropped them from the top spot in the AP Top 25. After that first game in Tempe, Buffaloes forward Xavier Johnson dissed the Cats, saying, "theyre not that good." He also said that even without injured star Spencer Dinwiddie, the Buffaloes were the more talented team and he suggested the rematch in Boulder would be a blowout. He was right, but it was the Wildcats who made this one a laugher, not the Buffaloes, who were throttled by Arizonas suffocating defence and their hot shooting hands. "I dont think you have any of our players saying anything negative about Colorado, saying, Were going to win by 20," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "We dont do that. For us, we have to play the right way. We have to compete hard. And certainly we respect Colorado." Coming off an emotionally draining win over the Sun Devils on Wednesday night that burnished their NCAA tournament credentials, the Buffaloes (20-8, 9-6) came out ice cold, missing their first 14 shots. They trailed 22-5 before Jaron Hopkins sank a 3-pointer from the left side 10:10 into the game. That sparked a 16-4 run by Colorado -- with seven points coming from the free throw line -- to make it 26-21 and force an Arizona timeout. The Wildcats settleed down thanks to a baseline drive by Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and a pull-up jumper by T.ddddddddddddJ. McConnell. The only field goal by a Buffaloes starter before halftime came on Askia Bookers jumper with 2 seconds left in the first half. After a horrendous start, however, the Buffaloes clawed their way back before Gordon sank three straight layups and Johnsons jumpers helped the Wildcats pull away. In celebration of senior night, Boyle gave 7-foot centre Ben Mills his first start of his career. He took the place of Josh Scott, who had started every game since Feb. 27, 2013, when he was dealing with a concussion. Scotts absence was quickly felt as Colorado was outrebounded 6-1 and fell behind 8-1 before Scott replaced Mills 2:49 into the game. But the Buffaloes didnt turn things around right away, as the Wildcats built those advantages to 10-3 on the boards and 14-3 on the scoreboard by the 14:39 timeout. Thanks to a 12-3 advantage at the stripe, however, the Buffs trailed just 31-25 at the half after shooting 6-for-27 from the floor. Scott, who led the Buffs with 18 points, sank a jumper to open the second half that made it a four-point game, but the Buffs couldnt get any closer and the Wildcats began to pull away when Kaleb Tarczewskis 3-pointer made it 40-33. "I think we got a little jump shot-happy, but I think thats a credit to them," Scott said. "I think we turned the ball over a couple of times at some key points in the game and its mainly because they pack the paint." About the only thing the crowd had to cheer about by the end was Mills 3-pointer in the final minute, the first of his college career. The 27-point loss was the biggest at home in the Boyle era, and he said it was particularly disconcerting with ESPNs College GameDay crew in town. "Our fans were so ready for this game, for this win, and we gave them nothing," Boyle said. "Thats a sick feeling to go home with and to live with. I havent been embarrassed many times as a coach, but I was embarrassed tonight at the way our team played." His players were, too. "Were all embarrassed, man, really embarrassed," Booker said. "This is something that, whether were on the road or at home, this should never happen again." ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Mariners designated hitter Corey Hart will be sidelined for four to six weeks after he strained his left hamstring stealing a base over the weekend. The Mariners placed Hart on the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday nights game at Texas. They recalled infielder-outfielder Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma. The 32-year-old Hart injured his leg swiping second during the fourth inning of the Mariners 6-2 victory at Minnesota on Sunday. He has appeared in 37 games, hitting .209 with five home runs and 17 RBIs. With no one other natural DH on the roster, manager Lloyd McClendon said he will mix and match to fill Harts vacancy in the batting order. "We all agree we dont have a prototypical No. 4 hitter," McClendon said. "We dont have a guy thats going to hit 40 home runs. Well do the best we can." Franklin was leading the Pacific Coast League in hitting at .376. Hes a natural second baseman who played three infield positions, the outfield and served as the DH over six appearances for Seattle during a brief April call-up. McClendon said Franklin will again float around multiple positions, including second base when Robinson Cano occupies the designated hitter spot. "A lot of it depends on his legs," McClendon said of Cano, 31. "I know he prefers to play the field." <a href="http://www.authenticjaguarsshop.com/Toby-Gerhart-Jaguars-Jersey">Toby Gerhart Jaguars Jersey</a>.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tony Romo felt sick to his stomach. It hurt to breathe, let alone bark out the cadence in a hostile road stadium. Playing with the throbbing pain from a fractured rib, Romo rallied Americas Team just as he promised he would. In a week when Romo vowed to play his best game, he delivered a gutsy comeback that looked so unlikely when he briefly came out from halftime and then returned to the locker-room. Moments after the Cowboys (1-1) announced the quarterback was done for the day, there came No. 9 ready to take charge of the huddle once again. Romo hit Jesse Holley on a 77-yard completion on the Cowboys first play of overtime that set up Dan Baileys winning 19-yard field goal, and Dallas pulled off an improbable 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. In one frantic span, Romo emphatically left his mark on the storied Cowboys-49ers rivalry that dates back decades to all those epic matchups in the NFC title game that regularly set up Super Bowl victories by the winner. "Its got to be one of those things that will follow him through his career. I know what it was here in the locker room at halftime. I know what he had to do to get back on the field," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "I know what he had to do before (painkillers) took hold to relieve him from his pain. But, boy, did he come back. That was inspirational." Romo emerged from the locker-room after the second-half kickoff and walked briefly into the huddle as Jon Kitna returned to the sideline, then Romo immediately came off under doctors orders and headed back to the locker room. Back on the sideline late in the third quarter, Romo tapped Jason Garrett on the shoulder and told the coach to put him back in the game. "Eventually, what was convincing was, At some point Im going to play with this thing, so why not now?" Garrett said, quoting Romo. "Its about a quarterback but its really about a football player and a competitor. And Tony is that. One of the best competitors Ive ever been around." This was an exact reverse of what happened a week earlier: a 27-24 road loss to the Jets after Dallas blew a late 14-point lead and watched New York kick the winning field goal. Romos late interception contributed to that Week 1 collapse. Going on a few hours of sleep, he was back to work early Monday morning preparing for the 49ers. Bailey kicked a tying 48-yard field goal Sunday as time expired in regulation after missing an early 21-yard attempt. That delighted the large contingent -- close to one-third -- of Cowboys fans in Candlestick Park. Romo completed five of six passes on the tying drive, connecting on consecutive throws to Holley before finding him again in OT. "Ribs are tough," Romo said. "Its just hard to breathe, and talk really. You have to talk loud, especially on the road." Romo wasnt the only one playing hurt, either. Running back Felix Jones separated his shoulder early in the game, Jones said. Miles Austin made three touchdown receptions among his nine catches for 143 yards, leaping over a defender and diving into the end zone to pull Dallas within 24-21 with 6:55 to play. Austin later hurt his hamstring. Jones wont need to defend Romo after this one. He grimaced and limped. He needed help from a lineman to stand up as the vicious hits kept coming. Romo completed 20 of 33 passes for 345 yards and Kitna found Austin for a five-yard TD, but also threw two interceptions during his brief appearance. As Romos teammates celebrated, cheered and hugged, he slowly made his way to midfield for post-game handshakes. Romo returned for the last series of the third quarter, the final 15 minutes and OT. He didnt give Garrett much chance to say no. "I just told him I was good to go. I think he asked some of the guys," Romo said. "I didnt give him too much of a chance. I just ran on the field." The 49ers (1-1) were trying to move to 2-0 under new coach Jim Harbaugh after a 33-17 victory over defending NFC West champion Seattle last week. Alex Smith threw for 179 yards and two touchdowns, including a 29-yard strike to Delanie Walker in the third quarter. Smith found himself in the familiar predicament of getting hit. He was sacked six times as San Franciscos offensive line often failed to protect him or give him ample time in the pocket to be effective. Frank Gore ran for a one-yard score and Kyle Williams had a 12-yard touchdown catch as San Francisco went ahead 14-0. Dallas had a final chance in regulation, getting the ball back with 4:03 to play starting from its own 26. Romo, in the shotgun as hed been most of the day, delivered on third-and-6 from the 43 with a seven-yard completion to Austin. They connected on another seven-yard gain the next play. After Jones this week called Romos performance against the Jets "outstanding," Romo made all the right calls in crunch time. He played through multiple hits in the first half, when he threw a late 53-yard touchdown pass to Austin to bring Dallas within 14-7. The QB came up slowly after being clobbered on a blindside cornerback blitz by Carlos Rogers as he was throwing in the second quarter. Romo looked to be headed for another tough day. The Cowboys came up short on a 76-yard drive over the opening 7 1/2 minutes after Bailey missed wide right on his 21-yard field goal attempt. Then, it was three straight three-and-outs. When it mattered, Romo came through. "He understands that all eyes are on him," said safety Donte Whitner, beat on the deep throw in OT. "They expect him to lead them to the playoffs and ultimately a championship. For a guy like that, after the things that happened last week, you expected him to come back into the football game." Notes: The 49ers were outgained in total yards 472-206. ... Dallas DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher each had two sacks. ...

The real victory for the Chicago Bulls will come when theyre knocking the Miami Heat out of the playoffs, not during the regular season -- no matter how charged the atmosphere is.LONDON -- The Brooklyn Nets should think about making another franchise move -- to London. The Nets improved to 3-0 in regular-season NBA games in the British capital with a 127-110 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday. Joe Johnson, who spent seven years with the Hawks, led the way for the Nets at the O2 Arena. The Brooklyn guard scored 26 of his game-high 29 points in the first half, and nailed two buzzer-beating 3-pointers. "We just exploited mismatches. I was just feeding off these guys," Johnson said. "We had a lot of ball movement and took a lot of open shots." Three years ago, the then-New Jersey Nets played two regular-season games at the same O2 Arena, located on the banks of the River Thames and the venue used for the gold medal basketball game at the 2012 London Olympics. They beat the Raptors in both those games. Last year, the New York Knicks beat the Detroit Pistons in the third regular-season game to be played in London. Although the crowd seemed to save its loudest cheers for off-the-court action, both teams finished the game with five players scoring in double digits. Andray Blatche added 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Nets, while Paul Pierce contributed 18 points, Alan Anderson 15 and Kevin Garnett 12. "The ball was moving, guys were looking for each other and finding each other," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. "Joe has been off the charts. Not just last few games but the whole season." Mike Scott and Shelvin Mack, both coming off the bench, led the Hawks with 17 points each. Jeff Teague scored 16 points, Paul Millsap had 13 and Pero Antic 11. The Hawks stayed close for the first quarter, but the Nets started to pull away in the second. Anderson started an 8-0 run early in the quarter, with Pierce contributing two layups and Blatche finishing it off with a putback to make it 39-30. "Their size and their length was a problem in a lot of different ways, and rebounding was just one of them," Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. Johnson ended the half with a 3-pointer at the buzzzer to make it 65-53.dddddddddddd. And the Nets pulled further away in the third quarter, with Johnson again finishing it off with a buzzer-beating 3 to make it 99-74. Although his scoring numbers dropped in the second half, Johnson has now scored 20 or more points in four straight games. "Weve got the best seat in the house," Garnett said of watching Johnson put up big numbers. "When youre so used to being in that situation yourself, its great to have a guy who can just take over the game." On the other end, Hawks guard Kyle Korver extended his NBA record to 108 straight games with a 3-pointer. Korver was off-target in the first three quarters and finally sank his eighth attempt from beyond the arc with just over 8 minutes to go, making it 111-81. That was his only basket of the night. "To give him an opportunity to continue something thats very unique and special is important," Budenholzer said. "At some point the streak will come to an end, but it wasnt tonight." Both teams play again on Monday. The Nets visit the New York Knicks while the Hawks host Miami. Besides the game, the fans oftentimes cheered wildly for the entertainment between quarters and timeouts, and for one famous guest. During a break in the third quarter, the face of Beatles great Paul McCartney flashed up on the big screen. As the crowd roared, several kids nearby jumped into the frame to make themselves seen. McCartney, sitting behind the Nets bench, then squirmed his way through the youngsters to gets his face back up on the giant monitor as "Hey Jude" blared inside the venue. NOTES: Nets G Deron Williams was out with a sprained left ankle. ... The Nets-Hawks encounter is the 12th NBA game in London, dating back to 1993, but only the fourth regular-season game. ... The Nets improved to 8-3 this season when Johnson scores 20 or more points. ... As usual, several Premier League soccer stars made their way to the O2 Arena to watch the game, including Germany striker Lukas Podolski and England midfielder Jack Wilshere. Both play for London club Arsenal. ' ' '

SEATTLE -- Clint Dempsey didnt have much to say about the two-game suspension he received from Major League Soccer. Fourteen words to be exact. "Disappointed. I dont agree with it. It is what it is and move on," Dempsey said after the Seattle Sounders wrapped practice on Thursday. The real concern for some is that the suspension came right before a major U.S. national team exhibition against Mexico next Wednesday. By the time Dempsey takes the field against Mexico in Glendale, Ariz., it will have been more than two weeks since Dempsey last played. And while its just an exhibition, its significant because it will be the last U.S. match before World Cup camp begins in May. "Its a friendly, its not a World Cup qualifier so theres not much pressure that there would be if it was a World Cup qualifying game," Dempsey said. "But its still exciting to represent your country and to play against one of your rivals." Dempsey was suspended and fined for violent conduct toward Toronto FC defender Mark Bloom in a March 15 match. Dempsey hit Bloom in the stomach/groin area, a blow not seen by officials but that was captured by television cameras. Dempsey said after the match that he was trying to slap Blooms hand off his back and did not intend to strike his body. The MLS players union appealed but the suspension was upheld. Dempsey sat last week when Seattle won at Montreal and will be a spectator Saturday when the Sounders host Columbus. Hell return to MLS play on April 5 when Seattle travels to rival Portland. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was one of Dempseys most vocal supporters after the suspension was announced. He was quick to point out the number of fouls Dempsey has taken since returning to MLS. "Its very disappointing to see Clint be the only person punished from this game," Klinsmann said last week. "There is a foul against him in the sixth minute that should have been a red card. The persistent fouling continued throughout the game, and hes getting punished for a reaction following all those fouls. Yes he made a mistake, but if opponents dont get penalized for consistently fouling, it only encourages them to continue that approach." According to stats provided by MLS, Dempsey is the most fouled player in the league since Aug. 10 of last season. Dempsey, the U.S. captain, appreciated Klinsmanns concern. "Yeah, for sure its always good that the manager has your back and I appreciate that," Dempsey said. "All I can do is keep working hard and keep working on my fitness after training and making sure I play well when Im with the national team, like I have always done in the past. And make sure I keep playing good with the national team moving forward and pay him back for his faith in me." Dempsey said one solution to the fouls would be for more yellow cards to be handed out earlier in the match. He believes that could create a better rhythm to the game. "I think its important to protect every player," Dempsey said. "The sooner you start giving the cards for reckless fouls then it cuts down on a lot of things and it makes the game more exciting to watch because there is more free flow to it." <a href="http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Dexter-Mccluster-Titans-Jersey">Dexter McCluster Womens Jersey</a>.C. -- The Bobcats announced theyve signed centre Justin Hamilton to a 10-day contract. <a href="http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Warren-Moon-Titans-Jersey">Warren Moon Jersey</a>.Y. - The NHL has suspended Buffalo Sabres forward Zenon Konopka for 20 games after he tested positive for a banned substance. <a href="http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Jackie-Battle-Titans-Jersey">http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Jackie-Battle-Titans-Jersey</a>.

The Bundesliga club said in a statement that the former Liverpool defender Hyypia was being released "with immediate effect" following Fridays 2-1 loss at relegation-threatened Hamburger SV. Lewandowski stepped back to resume coaching Leverkusens youth side after securing Champions League qualification with Hyypia last season. He has been charged with securing at least fourth place in the Bundesliga to repeat the feat this time around. "He helped us out in a critical situation once before when he worked alongside Sami Hyypia following the release of Robin Dutt," Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller said. "Were firmly convinced he will succeed again." Leverkusen previously drew with bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig and is in danger of losing fourth place, with both Wolfsburg and Borussia Moenchengladbach in a position to overtake on Saturday. "This decision was more than difficult because Sami did a brilliant job over the last two years," Voeller said. Leverkusen was second at one point in the Bundesliga but had a severe change in fortune after the winter break with only three wins from 12 league games this year. IIt has also endured humiliating losses to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and second-division Kaiserslautern in the German Cup.dddddddddddd "What he and his coaching staff achieved with the team in the first half of the season was well beyond expectations and earned him praise from all sides," Voeller said. "Thats why the current slump is even more painful for us. The dramatic events of the last few weeks leave us no other choice but to bring about a separation. We want to and have to try everything to save the season." Assistant coach Jan-Moritz Lichte was also released. "Its not an easy situation for me now to take Samis place," Lewandowski said. "We had responsibility for this team together for more than a year. So you cant take over without regret that the former partner couldnt realize his dreams." Kicker magazine said that Thomas Schaaf (former Werder Bremen coach), Markus Weinzierl (Augsburg), Armin Veh (Eintracht Frankfurt) and Jos Luhukay (Hertha Berlin) are all possible candidates to take over from next season. Hyypia is the seventh coach to lose his job in the Bundesliga this season, following the dismissals of Bruno Labbadia and his successor Thomas Schneider at Stuttgart, Thorsten Fink and his successor Bert van Marwijk at Hamburger SV, Michael Wiesinger at Nuremberg and Mirko Slomka at Hannover.

WASHINGTON -- John Wall had 23 points and 11 assists, and the Washington Wizards reached .500 for the third time this season with a 96-93 win over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. The Wizards had six players score in double figures in their third straight victory, two of them coming against Chicago. Bradley Beal and Martell Webster had 14 points apiece. There were 12 lead changes and 11 ties. Washington took a 92-91 lead on Marcin Gortats layup with 4:28 to play. With the Wizards ahead 96-93 with 1:06 to play, Chicagos Joakim Noah threw a pass out of bounds, and teammate Taj Gibson missed a short jumper with 30 seconds left. As the clock wound down, Jimmy Butler tried a tying 3-pointer for the Bulls and Nene blocked it with less than a second to play. The Bulls were held to just one field goal in the final 5:16. They missed eight of their last nine shots. Kirk Hinrich led Chicago with 18 points, and D.J. Augustin scored 16. The Bulls had won six of seven, and were trying to reach .500 for the first time since Nov. 27. Gortat had 13 points as Washington improved to 19-19 -- the first time its been at .500 since Dec. 30. Chicago played for the first time since their second triple-overtime game of the season, a win in Orlando on Wednesday. The Wizards also played on Wednesday, and scored their most satisfying win of the season, a drubbing of two-time NBA champion Miami. Washington shot 68.4 per cent in the first quarter and led 30-27 after one. The Wizards also had a 54-50 lead at halftime. Chicago went on a 14-2 run to take a 70-62 lead with 5:18 remaining in the third. But the Wizards responded with a 10-0 run that included an exciting shot by Wall. The speedy point guard was grabbed by Mike Dunleavy on a drive. He spun and flipped the ball into the hoop with his left hand as he fell backward. The game was tied at 74 after three. NOTES: Wizards coach Randy Wittman said F Al Harrington (right knee) isnt close to returning. Harrington hasnt played since Nov. 12. .The Bulls are the eighth NBA team to play two triple overtime games in the same season. . Noah had 12 rebounds for his 11th straight game in double digits, a career best. .

DENVER - A fast start and exciting finish helped the Colorado Avalanche avoid another disappointing home loss. Paul Stastny had the tying goal and two assists and Tyson Barrie scored 33 seconds into overtime to complete the rally that lifted the Avalanche to a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Jan Hejda and Jamie McGinn also scored for Colorado and Gabriel Landeskog had a career-high three assists. "Its awesome. To get that point going to OT was huge, and to get the second one was awesome," Barrie said. It didnt look like Colorado would get any points for the second straight home game. The Senators carried the play for a majority of the game but couldnt finish it off. "I think we got what we deserved. They played very good to start the game and very good to end the game," Senators coach Paul MacLean said. "In between we were in control. You come on the road and get a point after being down 2-0 in the first five minutes, I think we earned the point." The Avalanche were down 3-2 in the third and pressed for the tying goal. John Mitchell nearly tied it when his shot went off the inside of the right post. Stastny got the equalizer moments later when he deked goalie Craig Anderson and scored at 17:40. In overtime, Stastny fed Barrie in front of the net and the defenceman buried the chance to give Colorado the win. "I called to Paul behind the net and I just tried to get open," Barrie said. "I knew he was going to find me. It was just a matter of trying to beat the goalie. I thought I saw some room on the right side and tried to put it there and fortunately it went in. Thats a huge two points for us." Clarke MacArthur had a goal and an assist, and Jason Spezza and Kyle Turris also scored and Ottawa. "We didnt have a good start to the game, but we played a really good hockey game after that," Spezza said. "We sat back too much and we gave them too many chances to tie the game, and in overtime anything can happen." The Senators controlled play for much of the second period and took the lead on two quick goals after a pair of minors by Colorado defencemen. Cory Sarich drew a slashing minor at 11:06 and Hejda a delay of game 68 seconds later to put the Avalanche down two players. Spezza, back after missing four games with a hip flexor injury, tied it with his 12th goal with 13 seconds left in the 5-on-3. Colorado killed off the second minor, but Turris scored before Hejda could get back into the play. It was Turris 11th goal of the year. "We were in full control," MacArthur said. "We were finding a way to win and tonight we found a way to lose." Colorado jumped ahead with two goals by 4:54 into the first period. McGinn got the first one when he tipped Erik Johnsons pass from the point during a power play past Anderson. It was McGinns 10th of the season. Hejda made it 2-0 just 2:35 later when he beat Anderson with a slap shot from the point. It was his eighth goal of the season. Anderson finished with 27 saves and Erik Karlsson had two assists. The two goals seemed to energize the Senators, who outshot the Avalanche 9-3 the rest of the first period. They pressured goalie Semyon Varlamov and finally broke through after a turnover by Andre Benoit. Bobby Ryan gathered the loose puck and fed MacArthur from behind the net, and the left winger scored on a one-timer from the left slot at 15:02. It was his 15th of the season. Ottawa nearly tied it on a power play early in the second period. Two Senators hit posts during the man advantage as the Senators had four shots on goal in the two minutes. Varlamov stopped 29 shots. "A character win for us. We were a little shaky after they had that 5-on-3 and we were a little shaky to start the third period. Varly made some great saves for us. The last five minutes, I really liked what I saw. We played with urgency and I was very proud of our team." NOTES: Barrie has two overtime goals in his career. ... Avalanche C Ryan OReilly was scratched with a shoulder injury. OReilly was injured in the third period of Mondays loss to Calgary. ...

CHICAGO -- A nephew of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was one of 13 men shot -- two fatally -- during a violent six-hour stretch in Chicago, another indication that violence is on the rise in the nations third-largest city. Wade learned of the situation with his nephew after Miami defeated Dallas on Thursday night. On Friday, Wade said he played "with a heavy heart" when the Heat visited Toronto. Wade scored 30 points in Miamis 113-101 victory, and afterward said he expected his nephew to recover. "I played for him and with him in mind," Wade said. "I was 9 years old when he was born. I was an uncle at 9 years old. A lot of thoughts go through your mind. ... My prayers go out to all the families involved, especially the one family who lost a child. My prayers go out to them. Its tough." Wades nephew was one of six males shot at a store on Chicagos South Side about 6 p.m. Thursday by hooded men who police said fled the scene in an SUV. One man was dead at the scene and four others -- ranging in age from 16 to 24 -- were hospitalized in critical condition. The Cook County medical examiners office identified the slain man as Shawndell Harris, 22. The Wade family has not released their injured relatives name, nor has Chicago police. The eight-time NBA All-Star said his Wades World Foundation has made curbing violence, particularly gun violence, a top priority for several years. For Wade, a Chicago native, that made the news of these shootings even more troubling. "Its very concerning," Wade said. "A lot of work that I do in the community in Chicago is about (gun violence) and to have a family member, my nephew, be involved in it, its sad. It hurts your heart to think about not only your family but other families going through it. Im just glad that hes fine and hopefully he recovers. ... You never expect to get a call like that." The news of the shooting involvinng Wades nephew comes one week after Heat players including Wade and LeBron James spoke out about last months shooting of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.dddddddddddd A neighbourhood watch volunteer fatally shot the 17-year-old in the Orlando suburb of Sanford, Fla. No arrest has been made; the volunteer has claimed self-defence. Of the Martin shooting, Wade said that, "as a father, this hits home." With regard to his nephew, Wade indicated surgery had taken place. Wade was still collecting details. "My family tried to keep me out of it while I was playing the game," Wade said. "So now that the game is over hopefully I can call and get a chance to talk to them." Police in Chicago said there were three other shootings during Thursdays stretch of violence. -- Shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, David Gully, 31, was fatally shot in the head across the street from his South Side home. Suspects have been questioned and several weapons have been recovered, police said. -- About 10:30 p.m. Thursday, four people standing in a parking lot on Chicagos West Side were wounded when a gunman fired at them from a moving vehicle, police said. -- Two other men were wounded in separate shootings on the South Side -- one in the leg and one in the buttocks. The shootings are part of a larger uptick in violence across the city this year. From Jan. 1 to March 29 of this year, there were 474 shootings, 101 of them fatal, according to the Chicago Police Department. During the same time period last year, there were 346 shootings, 55 fatal. Tio Hardiman, director of the anti-violence group CeaseFire, said he believes clashes are increasing because the city is dealing with violence as a crime problem and not as a public health epidemic. "You cannot arrest your way out of this problem," Hardiman said. "You have to meet people where they are and change the way they think." ' ' '

It seemed somehow serendipitous that on a day when we turned the calendar to June, the Vancouver Whitecaps were establishing a litany of new “firsts” as they overturned the Portland Timbers in a pulsating, enthralling encounter in the Rose City. Vancouvers first ever win over their expansion cousins (and, obviously, a first at Providence Park) came after nine attempts.  That seems hard to believe given the Whitecaps run of results leading up to the two Cascadian rivals joining MLS from North Americas second tier.  Equally amazing, the 4-3 loss at home was Portlands first in 23 games, a remarkable record stretching all the way back to March 9, 2013 when the Montreal Impact took all three points at the then Jeld-Wen Field.   The win extended Vancouvers unbeaten run to six games, another first for the young MLS franchise.  That may not pop off the page like a 22-game unbeaten run at home, but when you also include a road game at the Columbus Crew and home games with the LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders in that period, the achievement seems a bit more noteworthy. Two converted penalties was a Whitecaps first on the road.  (They did score twice from the spot against Real Salt Lake at home, late in the 2011 season).   While referee Kevin Stott put himself in terrific position to see both first-half incidents in Portland, its hard not think about the penalty gods who somehow erased a dubious decision from a week ago with the Whitecaps leading Seattle. Erik Hurtado scored his first ugly goal of the season. The Beaverton, Oregon boy came home to bury a psychologically punishing chance that completely changed the complexion at half-time. The predatory instinct of Vancouvers fifth-overall pick from 2013 was clearly on display after he forced a great save from Donovan Ricketts before bundling the ball home by anticipating a rebound.  Its a difficult feat to score four goals in four-straight games, but Hurtado has done it four different ways and, for good measure, showed a different quality by beautifully setting up Kekuta Manneh leading to the second penalty.  Goals at Philadelphia on Saturday and Montreal after the World Cup break would tie and then break the five-goals-in-five-MLS-games record held by Camilo over June and July of last year.  But perhaps the most exciting “first” of all was the two goals and two assists from Whitecaps midfield maestro Pedro Morales, who, with each passing game, looks like an odds-on early season choice for MLS Newcomer of the Year.  The Chilean conductor out “number 10d” last years recipient of that award, Diego Valeri, by quite some margin.  His vision to pick out Hurtado on the first-half stoppage time 3-1 goal was incisive and impossible to defend.  But his delay, recognition, and then exquisite ball to Jordan Harvey early in the second was even better and it proved to be the game winner.  Morales is a bona fide superstar and one who seems to be relishing his role with the club.  It looks likely that hell provide some more milestones before this season is done.  The Whitecaps will now get a chance to cross another couple of “firsts” off their list - a first goal and victory at PPL Park in Philadelphia, where the Caps visit the Union this Saturday.  Judging by their current form, and their ability to “feast on the East” that seems like a pretty safe bet. <a href="http://www.authentictexansteamshop.com/D-J-Swearinger-Texans-Jersey">D.J.

The Jays activated Janssen from the 15-day disabled list early on Sunday. The 32-year-old has been out since the beginning of the season with a left abdominal lower back strain. The 23-year-old Hutchison is 0-2 over his last six starts since a victory at Tampa Bay on April 1 in his first start of 2014. Hutchison allowed nine hits and five runs over eight innings of a no-decision against Philadelphia on Tuesday. His only appearance against the Angels came May 6, 2012 in Anaheim when he gave up eight hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings of a 4-3 defeat. Angels starter Jered Weaver is 3-0 with a 1.78 ERA over his last four starts and hasnt lost since April 6 at Houston. The right-hander threw eight strong innings in a 4-1 home win over the Yankees Monday. Weaver escaped a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the top of the eighth. He gave up a run on six hits, walked one and struck out seven. In 10 career starts versus Toronto, Weaver is 8-2 with a 3.68 ERA. In taking the first two of this four-game series, the Angels have won six in a row in Toronto. Their last loss at Rogers Centre came June 30, 2012 and thhey have won nine of the last 10 meetings overall.dddddddddddd Tyler Skaggs spun eight-plus strong frames, C.J. Cron clubbed his first big league homer, and the Angels earned a 5-3 win yesterday afternoon in the second installment of this four-game series. Skaggs (3-1) struck out four while giving up just four hits and three runs -- two earned -- over his stellar outing. "He had some good movement on his fastball," Blue Jays catcher Erik Kratz said of Skaggs. "There werent a lot of hard hits today." Cron stroked a solo shot in the third inning and singled home a run in the second, while Chris Iannetta smacked a two-run homer. "Tyler is really coming into his own. You can really see the maturation process," Iannetta said of his batterymate. "He just keeps getting better and hopefully he just keeps learning how to pitch and learning how to execute." Toronto starter J.A. Happ (1-1) lasted just 2 1/3 innings after giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk. Jose Bautista scored once and also knocked in a run for the Blue Jays, who came into this series with five consecutive wins. Angels manager Mike Scioscia is scheduled to return to the team. He missed the first two contests of the series to attend his daughters college graduation. ' ' '

YANGMEI, Taiwan - Defending champion Suzann Pettersen struggled with three early bogeys but recovered for a 1-over 73 Saturday to maintain a four-shot lead after the third round of the Sunrise Championship. The Norwegian dropped three shots over the first five holes but had three birdies and just one more bogey the rest of the way for a 6-under total of 210. The trio of Azahara Munoz, Sun Young Yoo and Carlota Ciganda were four shots back heading into the final round. One of Pettersens bogeys came on the par-3 second, which she aced on Friday. "On the second, I kind of made a little amateur mistake trying to get too cute on the tee ball and left myself with a very tough up and down," Pettersen said. "I just couldnt get it going and made a few errors. Today was a tough day for me. It was all about hanging in there and trying to bring it back to where I started." Pettersen birdied par-5s on the eighth and 13th before another bogey at the 17th. She finished off with a birdie on 18 for a three-day total of 6-under. "I could easily have lost it out there today," Pettersen said. "It was — you know, some days are easy, some days are not that easy, some of the times you see everything youre going to do right in front of you. Munoz shot a 69 at the Sunrise Golf and Country Club to climb up the leaderboard, while Yoo and Ciganda both shot 72. Munoz has just one top-10 finish on the LPGA Tour this year, but won a Ladies European Tour event in France in September. "Its fun finally being in contention and being in one of either the leading group or second leading groups," said Munoz, who was second in Taiwan in 2011. Im just going to go out there and keep playing like I am." After her poor start, Pettersen recovered with birdies on No. 8 and 13 before three-putting for another bogey on 17. But she finished with a birdie to carry a bit of momentum into Sunday. "I could easily have lost it out there today," Pettersen said. "Obviously nice to finish on a good note. This is far from over." <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbengals.com/Womens-Vincent-Rey-Authentic-Jersey/">Vincent Rey</a>. - Its a new game with a new team in a new city, but its just football for linebacker Aaron Maybin. <a href="http://www.shopjerseysbengals.com/Womens-Kevin-Huber-Authentic-Jersey/">Kevin Huber</a>.
