Australia to provide England with stern test at Twickenham

Jones aside, the Wallabies have made no secret this week that a 3-0 home series loss to England in June is still in the forefront of their mind and Larkham said a win on Saturday would be a step to amending that. "He has always operated with a chip on his shoulder and now there isn't a chip because things are going really well, he keeps looking for it". The 34-year-old featured in Australia's run to the 2015 World Cup final under Cheika too, but remains fairly confident he has now played ... Read More »

Towns, Porzingis square off again when Knicks host Twolves

Their taller frames make it impossible for defenders to really effect their shots. The New York Knicks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 106 to 104 on November 30, 2016 at Target Center. But if he were to leave then we wouldn't have to worry at all about running the triangle and Hornacek could take over the offense that seems to be working for the team already. Read More »

New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves

Even without their stars, San Antonio came back from a 13-point third-quarter deficit. He's the fourth-youngest player to drop a 40-plus point, 15-plus rebound game in National Basketball Association history, and he's plenty likely to go off and increase his career high before the season's over.

LeBron James chosen Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of Year


Once James removes his Cubs uniform and puts on his Cavaliers uniform, the friends will battle from start to finish. "Other than me winning, it's the best single day I've ever had", Rivers said. And though he didn't catch James entering the arena, he was glad to see Wade and James enjoying the bet. Rondo didn't play well defensively in the half, but he was noticeably active on the offensive end, which was part of the reason the Bulls looked good offensively in the first half. Read More »

Tiger and Jeter play golf, and only 1 of them is retired

It would make for a fantastic final chapter: the greatest golfer of his generation, now in his 40′s, going toe-to-toe with a group of young guns who grew up idolizing him, but aren't intimidated by the transcendent player he once was. While he has to continue to monitor the wear and tear on his body and seek treatment after every round and every long session on the range, he added that he is healthy. Read More »

Penn State's Saquon Barkley picks up big Big Ten awards


That's evident as the Nittany Lions have generated pressure out of their base defense late in games. Penn State's offense has generated 80 plays of 20 yards or more this season, 57 passes and 23 runs. How Houston handles the big stage of playing in the Big Ten title game in Indianapolis is a key factor. "I've said before: We can't control what (the selection) committee does", senior cornerback Sojourn Shelton said on a conference call. Read More »

Cubs sign Jon Jay; Dexter Fowler out of the picture?


A year later, he saw action in a career-high 159 games and batted.297 (135-for-455) with 24 doubles and a career-best 10 home runs in helping the Cardinals to the 2011 World Championship.

Fowler is one of the top available free agent outfielders in the market today and he attracts so much attention to many teams. Read More »

Nico Rosberg keen to consign Lewis Hamilton's Abu Dhabi tactics to history


The German Grand Prix, absent in 2015, is set to be struck off again in 2017 for financial reasons and Rosberg's dominant Mercedes team say there is little they can do about it.

Penn St-Wisconsin winner in Big Ten game no lock for playoff

Things would have been so much simpler if Ohio State hadn't lost to the Lions on the road on October 22.

Another Westbrook triple double, another win for the Thunder

It took Westbrook 395 fewer games than James to achieve the milestone. Russell Westbrook and LeBron James have the same number of career triple-doubles, but if you were to illustrate their proximity, you might picture Russ rushing to the hoop and LeBron backpedaling like insane, about to fall out of the picture.
