I am wondering if Chris Mack did the right thing when he left Xavier for Louisville. It is certain that his wife likes the move since her family still lives in the Louisville area. Chris’ bank account will also like the move since he will be making $4 million for each of the next 7 years.The downside of the move is that he is leaving a program that is very stable, and for the most part, lacking NCAA scrutiny. He is going to a program where the alumni seemingly will stop at nothing to get a recruit to choose Louisville. While Rick Pitino was at Louisville, there was always an NCAA investigation. Mack will have to clean up this part of the program immediately. Once you get the NCAA on your back, they watch every move no matter how minor. Chris is a nice guy, so I hope he is tough enough to stand up to the alumni pressure.
Spurs boss Pochettino had compared Aguero’s play to the genius of Mozart in the build-up to the Barclays Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium and his side simply proved incapable of stopping him. But the goals told only part of the story of a breathless encounter which featured four penalties – two of which were saved – countless chances and a red card for Tottenham’s Federico Fazio. The Argentinian actually seemed to have few options on the left of the area but he opened his body and clipped a superb shot inside the far post. Spurs produced an immediate response as Mason robbed Fernando and Soldado released Eriksen to smash a powerful shot in, off Hart and then off the underside of the crossbar. But the visitors could not retain parity for long as Lampard exchanged passes with Milner and then went down under a challenge from Lamela in the area. Moss had little hesitation in awarding the penalty and Aguero stepped up to fire home his second. City looked impressive in possession but their rhythm might have been disrupted when the influential Lampard appeared to suffer a thigh injury and had to be carried off just before the half-hour. Yet the hosts pressed on and Aguero might have had his hat-trick – when he shot straight at Lloris – even before being presented with a second spot-kick as Younes Kaboul felled Silva. Lloris saved well from Aguero and the striker put the rebound over with a scissors kick. Spurs looked to make the most of the reprieve but Hart produced another fine save to keep out a Mason drive and also palmed away a long-range Eriksen effort. A frantic first half ended with Lloris saving from Navas and the second began with the same man stopping an Aguero shot. Navas was also frustrated in front of goal before Aguero failed to connect with a Silva cross by inches. There was another dramatic twist just after the hour as Martin Demichelis was adjudged to have brought down Soldado. But the third penalty awarded became the second one saved as Hart plucked Soldado’s shot out of the bottom corner with a full-stretch dive. The England keeper had to be alert again moments later as Soldado connected firmly with a cross and he saved with his feet. City weathered that storm but it took another moment of controversy for them to gain firm control. This time Spurs league debutant Fazio was deemed to be in the wrong, pulling back his countryman Aguero off the ball and in front of goal to earn a red card. This time Aguero made no mistake from the spot and he was still far from done, scoring a fourth as he chased down a long ball from Fernandinho and curled in another fine shot. Spurs were already beaten as Toure came on for the final 14 minutes as Milner almost added to their woes with a curling shot that struck the post. Press Association Sergio Aguero delivered the performance Mauricio Pochettino feared as he fired all four goals in Manchester City’s dramatic 4-1 win over 10-man Tottenham. Aguero missed one of the penalties himself, being denied by Hugo Lloris after he had already struck twice, either side of a Christian Eriksen equaliser. Spurs’ luckless striker Roberto Soldado was also out of luck from the spot, as Joe Hart capped another superb display with a brilliant save. There was debate about most of the penalty decisions by referee Jon Moss, not least the one which saw Fazio dismissed on his league debut for a foul on Aguero. But Aguero did convert two of his three penalties and he wrapped up the scoring with a finish as sublime as the one with which he opened it. James Milner also hit the post late on as the game proved compelling from the first minute to the last. Spurs were thrashed 6-0 and were a goal down within a minute on the same ground 11 months ago. They performed much better this time but the end result was that the champions still had too much for them. They started well with Ryan Mason dragging a shot wide and then being denied when clean through by Hart. The England goalkeeper was in action again moments later as he tipped over an Eriksen drive. City looked much better in attack than defence and David Silva almost put Aguero through before Jesus Navas tested Lloris. Frank Lampard, starting ahead of the presumably rested Yaya Toure, then robbed Erik Lamela to set up the first goal, although Aguero still had plenty to do.
The Argentina winger fired home from 25 yards to atone for gifting Burnley the platform for Ashley Barnes’ equaliser. Harry Kane headed Tottenham into the lead before Barnes levelled, George Boyd latching onto Lamela’s misplaced pass in the build-up. Press Association Erik Lamela broke his 25-game Barclays Premier League goal drought to seal Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Burnley at White Hart Lane. Lamela shook off that error to dart in from the right flank, tee himself up and convert a long-range blast to end his dismal run without a league goal in north London. The 22-year-old has struggled to justify his £27million price tag since joining Spurs from Roma in August 2013, but finally broke his league duck as Mauricio Pochettino’s side secured their third successive win. Barnes’ 20-yard blast was every bit as smartly-taken as Lamela’s impressive strike, the Burnley forward claiming his second goal in as many matches. Sean Dyche’s side were unable to offer any response after Tottenham regained the lead however, with the hosts bossing the goalless second half. Burnley’s defeat dropped them into the relegation zone, after QPR saw off West Brom 3-2. Tottenham’s quicker thinking caught the Clarets cold for the game’s opening goal, Kane starting and finishing a smart move. The Spurs striker pounced on Kieran Trippier’s handball to slide a quick free-kick into the onrushing Nacer Chadli, who fired a left-wing cross straight back to Kane. The Enfield-born hitman flicked his calm header home for a goal that sparked the game to immediate life. Dyche was left remonstrating with officials, complaining of a potential offside against Christian Eriksen from Kane’s free-kick. Spurs’s Denmark midfielder was canny enough not to chase the ball to Chadli however, ensuring the hosts’ first real attacking move bore fruit. Just when Spurs were winding up to wrestle full control however, Burnley struck back. Lamela lost possession cheaply in midfield, Boyd found Barnes – and the visiting midfielder blasted a fine long-range strike past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Kane then fluffed a tap-in as Spurs pressed again, hacking at fresh air when it would have been easier to double his day’s goal tally. Lamela’s mazy run and low cross teed up Kane’s staggering miss, before Eriksen fired the loose ball over the bar. Jason Shackell nodded wide from a smart far-post corner a Burnley kept battling, but Spurs struck next to take a 2-1 lead into the break. Lamela cut in off the right wing, picked his spot and fired home from 20 yards, atoning for the error that had allowed Burnley to level. Danny Ings caught Federico Fazio on the run after a smart through-ball before firing in on goal when the second half hit full swing – but Lloris turned the strike round his near post. Chadli found the net after Kane’s neat through-ball, but the Morocco midfielder was judged offside and the strike chalked off. Tom Heaton produced a solid save to deny Kane in a one-on-one, and the Spurs frontman was later just unable to reach Eriksen’s low cross in another reasonable opening. While Spurs were unable to extend their lead the hosts retained control in the second-half, meriting the hard-fought victory in the event.

THE NATIONAL Sports Commission (NSC) is heartened by the recent performances of Team Guyana at the recently concluded Central America and Caribbean (CAC) Body Building championships in the Dominican Republic.During a meet-and-greet yesterday at the Commission’s Homestretch Avenue office, the Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, commended the team’s performance, adding that more support will be forthcoming from the government.Guyana Team of Mr Guyana Kerwin Clarke, Devon Davis, Bruce Whatley, Emmerson Campbell, Alisha Fortune and Franklin Brisport returned with five medals.“Bodybuilding is noteworthy to mention because every time they participate at a regional or international event, they always return with awards. The NSC was only too proud to contribute to their travels because we knew that they would be representing the Golden Arrowhead to the best.”President of the Guyana Body Building and Fitness Federation (GABBFF) Kevon Bess contended that they will continue in pursuit of greatness.“It’s the fitting thing to have the athletes given the opportunity to represent Guyana at all costs and we hope that with this recent success and the success that we’ve been building on for the last couple of years that we can encourage more tangible support from the government going forward.“The tally of medals this year is the highest since we’ve been participating in the CAC championships and the athletes have continued to show much progress and we hope going forward, we can have the athletes represent Guyana at more competitions. ‘CAC Light Middleweight gold medallist Kerwin Clarke said, “I was elated by the performance at this year’s championship,” while Deron Davis, who obtained bronze in the Bantamweight category thought his experience was great.Meanwhile, Men’s Physique silver medallist Campbell was thankful to his sponsors for the experience, saying, “This is the biggest CAC competition that ever was in the history of the 44-year competition and this is the biggest medal haul. It wasn’t a fluke or we gained walkovers, it was a great achievement and I hope we continue to get the support of corporate Guyana.”Selvon Bruce Whatley picked up gold medal in the Masters Class before returning to take the silver medal in the Flyweight category.Fortune narrowly missed out on a medal performance, having been entered in the wrong category, for which the organisers later apologised.
Spurs’ match in hand is at Stoke City on Monday and if they win that they will narrow Leicester’s lead to five points.“The sending-off changed the whole match, but I judge my players, not the referee,” Ranieri said without commenting on the red card.“This was our soul, we play every match with blood, heart and soul, it was magnificent,” added the Italian whose team had won their last five games to close on their first English top-flight title.West Ham almost scored in the second minute when Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel saved a header from Cheikhou Kouyate, tipping the ball on to his left-hand post before it rolled across the line and hit the other upright.Vardy put Leicester ahead after a lightning counter-attack in the 18th minute with a left-foot shot into the corner of the net before picking up his first booking for a late challenge on Kouyate.His second yellow came early in the second half when referee Jon Moss ruled he dived looking for a foul and the match gradually swung West Ham’s way.They equalised through an 84th-minute Andy Carroll penalty after Wes Morgan hauled down Winston Reid and looked to have won the game two minutes later when Aaron Cresswell scored a stunning goal with a fierce shot from the edge of the box which dipped and swerved as it flew past Schmeichel.But with only seconds of stoppage time remaining Leicester equalised when Ulloa scored from the spot after Carroll fouled Jeffrey Schlupp.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Leicester City stumbled on their march towards the Premier League title by dropping two points in a 2-2 draw with West Ham United despite a last-minute equaliser from Leonardo Ulloa at the King Power Stadium yesterday.Leicester finished the match with 10 men after goalscorer Jamie Vardy was sent off early in the second half for a second yellow card.Leicester coach Claudio Ranieri praised his side for saving a point, which put them eight clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with four matches to play.

MIAMI >> Giancarlo Stanton stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall. The Miami Marlins’ right fielder is bigger than most baseball players, with the wingspan of a pteranodon. When he reaches, the world bends slightly in his direction.Stanton reached for a Cody Bellinger fly ball in the seventh inning Saturday, but not even he could prevent a small slice of history from falling to Earth. The ball cleared Stanton’s glove by a few inches and rolled to the wall. Bellinger glided into third base with a triple — becoming the first rookie in the history of the Dodgers’ century-old franchise to hit for the cycle.Bellinger also singled in the first inning, hit a two-run homer in the third inning and doubled in the fourth inning of the Dodgers’ 7-1 win at Marlins Park. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error He became the ninth Dodger to hit for the cycle, and only the third since the team moved to L.A. in 1958 — and, at 22 years and two days, the seventh-youngest to cycle for any team.In less than three months, Bellinger has gone from a non-40-man roster player to the National League leader in home runs.“This past week,” he said, “is probably the top of everything.”Bellinger has been in Miami since Monday, when he reached the semifinals of the Home Run Derby. On Tuesday he played in the All-Star Game. Thursday, he celebrated his birthday. Saturday he upstaged Alex Wood’s six shutout innings and Yasmani Grandal’s three-run home run, the other linchpins of the Dodgers’ latest victory.The Dodgers have won 28 of their past 32 games. The last time they did that, according to ESPN Stats and Info, was 1899. Will they ever lose a game again? “I would say at some point in time,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “I just don’t see anyone compete as much as we do. It’s not taking away anything from anyone else, but I think that our club for 27 outs competes harder than anyone. When you have the talent we have and the compete that we have, every single night, we’re going to win a lot of games.”This game carried little suspense. Marlins starter Jose Urena (7-4) unraveled in the third inning of a 0-0 game by allowing five runs. Three came on the home run by Grandal, his 12th of the season and his 10th as a left-handed hitter. Two came on the home run by Bellinger, his 26th of the season. He and Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto are tied for the NL lead.The Dodgers scored twice more. Bellinger’s 16th double of the season drove in Justin Turner to provide a 6-0 lead. After his historic triple — his second this season — Bellinger tagged up and scored on a Logan Forsythe sacrifice fly.Miami rallied for three hits against reliever Pedro Baez with two outs in the seventh inning to score its only run.Wood (11-0) walked one batter and struck out four. He is the first Dodgers pitcher to begin a season with 11 consecutive wins since at least 1913, and hasn’t lost a game since May 30, 2016.“It’s been kind of a crazy ride,” Wood said. “I’m trying to keep it all in perspective.”The Marlins could scarcely get the ball in the air against Wood’s superlative sinker. Only one of his 18 outs came on a fly ball to the outfield. Four came via strikeouts. The rest, a steady stream of grounders.“Any time your team wins a game, a lot goes into it,’’ said Wood. “I feel like every time I go out and pitch, we score five, six, seven runs. It definitely takes the pressure off early. … We’re just clicking on all cylinders.”The night belonged to Bellinger, whose four hits also set a career high. He is the fifth player to hit for a cycle this season, and the first Dodger since Orlando Hudson on Opening Day of the 2009 season.Wes Parker (in 1970) is the only other Dodger to achieve the feat since the franchise moved to Los Angeles.Bellinger said his parents have already amassed a small fortune of souvenir baseballs in a short amount of time: his first two home runs, his first double, his first RBI.“First something else,” he said. “A lot of firsts.”If Clay and Jennifer Bellinger have any room left in their Chandler, Ariz., home, Saturday’s game ball will join the collection of historic trinkets. For his part, Cody Bellinger has no apparent interest in indexing the tangible reminders of his greatness. Next to Saturday’s game ball, sitting on the chair by his locker, Bellinger noticed he’d gained a folded-up piece of paper.“Whatever this is — tickets? I haven’t really looked yet,” Bellinger said.His disinterest in each milestone is genuine, Roberts said.“Where we slated him at the start of the season, and the impact that he’s made, I don’t think that was expected, obviously,” Roberts said. “But the great thing about Cody is, he doesn’t get too far out of each moment. At the end of this season it’ll be great for him to look back at what he accomplished and what we accomplished as a team. That old saying: You’re never as good as they say you are and you’re never as bad. Cody just has really good perspective on things. It’s a wave that he’s never been on, but he’s enjoying the ride.”
