    USA Basketball takes off for Spain Aug. 29. In their final tune-up game before tipping off in the FIBA World Cup in Spain on Saturday, Team USA defeated Slovenia by 30 points, 101-71. Andre Drummond played roughly 7 minutes, all of which came in the fourth quarter when the game was already decided. He finished with 2 points and 2 rebounds, and believe it or not, his only bucket was an alley-oop dunk. It was a highlight alley-oop dunk. In fact, it was the No. 1 highlight from the game. Watch Drummond's dunk here Anthony Davis led Team USA with 18 points on 8 shots and added 11 rebounds, 4…

    Watch Andre Drummond (maybe) and company take on Goran Dragic and friends. It's time for another belated (read: late) game thread for USA Basketball. The men's national team is set with Andre Drummond in tow, but before they begin official FIBA tournament action they have one last warm up against Slovenia. Slovenia is led by star point guard Goran Dragic and he is joined by his brother Zoran. Joining the Dragic brothers are another set of brothers -- Erazem and Domen Lorbek. Erazem played a year of college ball at Michigan State University. Connections! With a full compliment of players and…

    Team USA and Slovenia have tipped off in Spain for the final game of their four-game exhibition slate. Andre Drummond has played sparingly in Team USA's first three exhibitions before the FIBA World Cup, but it didn't stop him from making the final cut. Will he get off the bench in today's game vs. Goran Dragic and the rest of Slovenia? Let's find out together.

    Stan the Man turns 55 today. What would you give the latest Detroit Pistons coach? Stan Van Gundy hasn't coached a second of Pistons basketball, but that doesn't mean we can let his birthday go by without highlighting the big day. Stanley Alan Van Gundy was born on this day in 1959 in Indio, California. Van Gundy grew up in a basketball family -- his father was a coach, he was a coach and his brother was a coach (cue footage of him latching onto Alonzo Mourning's leg at your own discretion). Van Gundy had a variety of low-level college coaching jobs -- Vermont, Castleton, Canisius, Fordham,…

  • Smyly leads Rays over Orioles 3-1 (The Associated Press)

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:12 pm
    For those who wonder whether the Tampa Bay Rays got enough in return for former Cy Young winner David Price, the answer appears to be a resounding yes. Making his fifth start for the Rays since being traded from Detroit, Drew Smyly allowed two hits over seven innings Wednesday night to lead Tampa Bay past the Baltimore Orioles 3-1. Although it's too early to start comparing Smyly to Price, there's reason to believe the Rays landed a gem in the July 31 three-team deal that sent Price to the Tigers and netted the Rays three players: Smyly, infielder Nick Franklin and shortstop Willy Adames.

The Yankees scored all eight of their runs in the third off Price (12-10), who had pitched a one-hitter in his previous start. Jacoby Ellsbury started the barrage, and New York went all the way through the batting order until the 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner was pulled after the ninth hit of the inning. Rookie Shane Greene (4-1) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked one.

  • Shafer calls Thompson another starter on defensive line

    sports
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:53 am
    Ron Thompson isn’t listed as a starter on Syracuse’s Week 1 depth chart, but head coach Scott Shafer doesn’t see it that way. “He’s going to have a great season, I really believe that,” Shafer said during his Wednesday morning press conference. “I look at Ron Thompson as one of the starters up front.” Recruited as a four-star tight end, Thompson was moved to defensive end after spring practice last year. As the Orange battled through injuries at defensive tackle during training camp as it looked to replace Jay Bromley, Thompson got some…

    The status of junior Omari Palmer for Friday’s season opener against Villanova is uncertain, head coach Scott Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference on Wednesday. “Well, I don’t know yet,” Shafer said when asked if Palmer was good to go. “We’re going to figure that out when we kick it off.” The reporter asking the question referred to a “minor knee issue” as the injury. Syracuse is already without senior guard Nick Robinson, a starter last season, due to a sprained foot. In the event Palmer…
  • Shafer discusses Philips’ potential as kick returner, likens freshman to sophomore Estime

    sports
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:33 am
    Scott Shafer said Wednesday that he wasn’t happy with Syracuse’s kick returning last season, and pegged freshman running back Ervin Philips as the potential solution.  “He’s an excellent football player,” Shafer said. “He has a lot of similar traits to Brisly (Estime) — quick feet, great vision, the ability to get out of breaks.” Estime emerged as one of SU’s primary return options last season, but will be taking more reps in the offense and punt return in the upcoming year.  That leaves a spot for Philips as one of the team’s kick returners, a position the Orange…

    Last week, a couple of aHealthierMichigan.org team members traveled to the Upper Peninsula for six days. We decided that it was time to explore what the rest of our state has to offer. We discovered that Michigan has a unique variation of national treasures and hidden gems that are truly a sight to see. Sunday: Our first stop was in Mackinaw City. After five hours of driving from Detroit, we were pretty tired and hungry so we decided to make a pit stop and get some grub. After we ate, we took a walk down to the lakeshore to Gary R. Williams Memorial Park. The view of Lake Superior was…

    Yes, it’s true, the wheels on the bus go round and round, but this fall, there’s an even better way to get to and from school. It’s called a walking school bus and it’s a triple threat: getting kids more active, helping to save the planet by using less gas, and cutting down on schools’ time and cost commitments. What is a walking school bus? The walking school bus is a revolutionary concept, yet still very simple. It is a group of kids who walk to or from school, with one or more adults as chaperones. It can be casual between families, or more organized with meeting points,…

    Vaccinations are a very important and necessary part of keeping your children healthy. All school-aged children, from preschool to college, need vaccinations to prevent infectious illness. And although it’s rare, communicable disease outbreaks still happen. For example, measles and whopping cough (pertussis) outbreaks have increased in the United States by 24% since 2013. Making sure your child is up to date on his or her vaccinations is one of the best ways to ensure your child’s long term health. If you’re not sure what vaccinations are required for Michigan schools, visit the…

    Foot and leg cramps can seemingly strike at any moment: in the middle of a run, while swimming or even when you’re just relaxing on the couch. And they happen to almost everyone. It’s estimated that these painful muscle spasms will hit about 95 percent of the population at one time or another. While they aren’t typically serious or impact your long-term health, the sudden, shooting pain can be excruciating in the moment. They can also be frustrating to the sufferer, as they seemingly occur for no reason whatsoever. But even though it seems like there’s no rhyme or reason to them,…
