Last week, ESPN announced that the legendary Dick Vitale would make his return to the commentary table for the 2021-22 season, with his first game on the call being No. 1 Gonzaga against No. 2 UCLA. Vitale, who is battling lymphoma, received clearance from his doctors to make his return to the broadcast.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Four-year-old Jason Castaneda is a fighter.  “He wants what he wants, and you can tell,” his mother said. READ MORE: Pregnant Woman Killed In Crescentville Shooting, Philadelphia Police Say“He fights everything, that’s why he’s made it this far,” she added. Born at just 26 weeks — weighing one pound and 10 ounces — Jason is defying all odds. He survived lung damage, a sepsis infection, and held on when doctors told the Castaneda family he might not make it. “They said, ‘We can’t guarantee he won’t die on us.’” Jason’s mother said. “And I said ‘OK, I have my faith.’” And for the next year and a half — little Jason got bigger, and stronger, in the NICU, and PICU at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Delaware, a world-renowned pediatric hospital that was nearly two hours away from their home. “We’re like back and forth trying to keep my whole family together,” Jason’s father said. But the family of five was able to stay together, and close to Jason, thanks to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware....
    One month from college football’s early-signing window, which quickly has become the primary signing window, the Pac-12’s coaching chaos is exacting a massive toll on recruiting efforts. Three teams are currently without head coaches (USC, Washington and Washington State); a fourth potentially could cut ties with its coach next month (UCLA); and a fifth coaching staff is under NCAA investigation (Arizona State). As a result, the conference is facing the increasing possibility of its worst recruiting season in eons. Prospects who decline to sign letters-of-intent during the early window, Dec. 15-17, have a second option, in early February. “It doesn’t look good,” 247Sports national recruiting editor Brandon Huffman, who’s based in Washington. Only two Pac-12 teams currently rank among the top-25 nationally in the 247Sports database: No. 9 Oregon, of course, and No. 15 Stanford, which has lined up its best class in years. Nobody else is close to making the top-25 cut. Meanwhile, the SEC has nine teams in the 247Sports top 25. “I can’t remember the last time this has happened to the Pac-12,” added Greg Biggins, a...
    Modern humans eventually took over Europe after several failed attempts to settle in the continent, according to scientists, but doubts remain over what caused their eventual success. A group of researchers made the discovery while they were studying the disappearance of Homo sapiens from Africa tens of thousands of years ago. Remains of our ancestors dating back 40,000 to 50,000 years have been found in Bulgaria, Romania and the Czech Republic recently. But analysis of these bones produced genetic profiles that do not match those of modern Europeans. Professor Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum, London, told the Guardian: 'These early settlements appear to have been created by groups of early modern humans who did not survive to pass on their genes. 'They are our species' lost lineages. 'The crucial point is that the demise of these early modern human settlers meant Neanderthals still occupied Europe for a further few thousand years before Homo sapiens eventually took over the continent.' Reconstruction of an early (between 37,000 and 42,000 years old) European Homo sapiens based on bones found in the...
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — It might be easy to look at the New York Giants’ 3-6 record and take the high road. New York has played its best football over the last three weeks and won twice. That includes an impressive win over Carolina, a late loss to the Chiefs and a surprising 23-16 win Sunday over the Las Vegas Raiders, the co-leaders in the AFC West. There is reason for optimism. The defense is coming around. The cavalry is expected to bring help for the offense with star running back Saquon Barkley (ankle), receiver Sterling Shepard (quad) and tackle Andrew Thomas (ankle) close to returning from injuries. Receivers Kenny Golladay (knee) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) will have more time to rest during the bye week after returning from injury. The other uplifting news is the NFC, a conference of the haves and have-nots. Arizona, Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Dallas, the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans all have winning records. Atlanta is at .500 and the rest of the conference is sub-.500. The Giants are only 1 1/2...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Timo Meier scored a power-play goal in overtime and the San Jose Sharks overcame the loss of seven players and their coach to NHL COVID-19 protocols, beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 Saturday night and snapping a three-game losing streak. The Sharks announced before the game they would be without the seven players and coach Bob Boughner. The start of the game was delayed 30 minutes. Meier scored on a one-timer from the wing that deflected off defenseman Logan Stanley’s stick and sailed over goalie Connor Hellebuyck’s shoulder at 1:07 of the overtime. Meier scored his fifth goal after Nikolaj Ehlers was called for interference. The Jets’ Kyle Connor tied it with over three minutes left in regulation with a backhander from in front of the net off a shot by Dominic Toninato. Toninato’s shot came off a pass from Pierre-Luc Dubois. Both were credited with an assist. Connor’s seventh goal extended his point streak to six games. He has seven goals and six assists in the stretch. Sharks goalie James Reimer had 34 saves...
    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It takes a couple of turns of the ignition key sometimes, but when the Rams’ offense gets started, it fires on as many cylinders as any in the NFL. Add head-starts from the defense, and it’s hard to keep up with. In what became a 38-11 victory over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, the Rams began slugglishly before roaring to life, led by Matthew Stafford and, well, almost everyone else in blue and yellow. Coach Sean McVay couldn’t help thinking about the frustration of the first quarter, when third-down sacks ended both of the Rams’ possessions. “I thought we could be a lot sharper offensively,” McVay said. “We’ve got to start faster. There’s no excuse. We’ve got to be better than that. But we’ll take the win, and I thought guys did a nice job.” When the offense got going, it quickly showed what McVay wishes it could be from the first snap. But you might put it the other way, that the cold start made the eventual combustion all the more...

    Washington (CNN)The prospects for reaching a tentative agreement on President Joe Biden's sweeping social safety net package by the end of the week are increasingly dire with Democrats still haggling over critical details of what to include and how to pay for the President's signature legislation.The slow progress comes after Democratic senators said Tuesday they'd hoped to reach an agreement on a topline and overall framework by the weekend and as Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's has dug in on her opposition to raising the corporate tax rate and the top marginal rate on individuals has rocked the party's plans to finance the bill.Sources familiar with the discussions say there are a host of thorny issues remaining including how to restructure prescription drug prices in a way that the US could negotiate directly with drug companies. There are also ongoing conversations about how to incentivize states to lower their carbon emissions and several issues to close out on who will qualify for programs like the expanded child tax credit and paid family leave. Overshadowing all of it is the fact that...
    Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during a news conference in Downing Street on September 7, 2021 in London, England.Toby Melville - WPA Pool | Getty Images News | Getty Images LONDON — The British government is set to announce that it has secured £9.7 billion ($13.4 billion) of new foreign investment, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson looks to reverse the post-Brexit freefall in financing. The government is hosting its first ever Global Investment Summit on Tuesday in a bid to convince the world's largest international investors to pump money into the U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be hoping to bolster support for his government's "Global Britain" agenda in the wake of Brexit, with foreign direct investment into the U.K. having nosedived since the country voted to leave the EU in 2016. The summit comes at a tricky time for the U.K. which is facing a slew of economic crises, including labor shortages, record-high natural gas prices and supply chain constraints. A substantial portion of the event's guest list hails from the U.S., including Bill Gates, Goldman Sachs CEO...
    After policing talks fell apart, Sen. Cory Booker is looking for other ways to change justice system iOS 15: How to make sense of deleting and moving apps on your iPhone © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow will play today, a week after suffering a throat contusion that sent him to the hospital. He spent the week on “voice rest,” and it remains to be seen whether his voice holds up when it’s time to call plays in the huddle and shout signals at the line, especially in a Detroit dome that could get noisy. The situation brought back memories of a bizarre development from 1980. 49ers quarterback Steve DeBerg had laryngitis. He couldn’t project his voice. So the team developed a system that put a microphone in his helmet and strapped a speaker system to the back of his shoulder pads, under his jersey. “He told me the quickest way to recover was to not speak for a month,” DeBerg later said, explaining his doctor’s...

    Four people died in Calabria, Italy, from carbon dioxide inhalation on Saturday after they tried to save one another from the fumes given off by their homemade wine. Two brothers, Giacomo and Valerio Scofano, 70 and 50, and father and son Santino and Massimo Carnevale, 70 and 45, died from inhaling the gases produced by a vat of fermenting grapes in the cellar of their home in the hamlet of San Miceli.  Police say the family had gathered to stir the wine and transfer some of the homemade alcohol into a set of oak barrels.  Valerio Scofano had been making the wine at home while under house arrest for the crime of stalking according to the police.

    FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Zach Wilson has been knocked around, tossed to the turf, made a few costly mistakes and been booed by his own team’s fans. And it’s just three games — all losses —- into the New York Jets quarterback’s NFL career. Not exactly how the No. 2 overall pick envisioned things going. But he’s far from down and discouraged. “I would say mentally I feel good,” Wilson said. “I would say I feel really good. I feel confident. Besides everything else, I feel like watching the tape with us and going through things, I feel like it’s really close. I feel like every play it’s one guy here, one guy there and we need all 11 to be great. “I need to do my part, of course. I’m included in that one guy making that mistake.” Wilson is front and center, though, in the spotlight along with first-year offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur for why the Jets have struggled on offense, scoring just 20 points through three games and only six in the past two —...

Having set out on a mission to end poverty and inequality through financial education, he is deemed as one of the thought leaders of his generation. One of 19 Keys’ biggest focuses is helping people through challenges. He has excellent insight on how to overcome the challenges of COVID-19 from a business aspect, and it begins with changing the way you think. At the moment, we can classify society into two categories: pre-COVID and post-COVID. A good place to start is determining what did and did not work from a business standpoint before the pandemic. The challenge is to adapt both aspects to a post-COVID world. Do the strategies that worked before the pandemic need to be modified? If yes, how? As for the things that didn’t work in a pre-pandemic setting, this is an excellent opportunity to come up with new solutions. “Make sure these solutions are dynamic so they can be modified as we ease out of the pandemic,” says 19 Keys.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals didn’t play particularly well for three quarters, gave up a stunning 109-yard touchdown just before halftime on a missed field goal and still rallied to win an NFL game on the road by nearly two touchdowns. “It was ugly, but we got it,” Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray said. For a franchise trying to make the playoffs for the first time since 2015, that represents a whole lot of progress. Arizona beat Jacksonville 31-19 on Sunday despite trailing for a big chunk of the afternoon. The Cardinals fell behind 13-7 just before halftime when Matt Prater’s 68-yard field goal attempt fell just short and was returned 109 yards for a touchdown. It was quite the metaphorical kick to the stomach. Arizona got over it quickly. “That’s about as big a moment of adversity as you can face in an NFL football game, to have something like that happen right before the half, and guys didn’t blink,” Kingsbury said. “Even when we went down two scores, guys didn’t blink. I was really proud of that...
    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Byron Murphy caught a glimpse of J.J. Watt bearing down on Trevor Lawrence and figured the pass would be underthrown. Murphy pounced, stepping in front of Jacob Hollister and turning a trick play into a Pick-Six. Murphy intercepted two passes, including one he returned for a touchdown following a botched flea flicker, and the Arizona Cardinals rallied to beat the skidding Jacksonville Jaguars 31-19 on Sunday. “The ball was in the air for a little bit so it gave me time to get there,” said Murphy, a 2019 second-round draft pick who got beat on a flea flicker in Week 1 at Tennessee. The Cardinals improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2015. The Jaguars (0-3) lost their 18th straight game, leaving them eight shy of the NFL record for futility. This one unraveled late. Jacksonville led 19-10 after James Robinson’s 4-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Coach Urban Meyer got the spark he had been looking for when Jamal Agnew returned a missed field goal a record-tying 109 yards for a score on...
    WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Many Texans and people across the country have struggled to feed their families during the pandemic and say they have had difficulty figuring out how to get help and had trouble finding healthy foods they can afford. A poll from Impact Genome and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds 23% of Americans say they have not been able to get enough to eat or the kinds of foods they want. Most of those facing food challenges enrolled in a government or nonprofit food assistance program in the past year, but 58% still had difficulty accessing at least one service.

    Dear Critter Corner: We just brought home our new pup and are realizing that he is extremely shy and seems to be afraid of most things. How can we help to build his confidence and let him know the world is not a scary place? Congratulations on your new pup! There are several things you can do to help build your pup’s confidence with all the new items he is going to be encountering. It is good to have a routine. Over time you will be able to loosen up once you see that he has settled in and knows what to expect in the new home. You can teach a ‘Touch’ cue to help build his confidence and turn touching things into a fun game. This will help him overcome some of his fear with new objects. Teaching him to ‘Go To Place’ is another great exercise. This can give him a safe place to go and if you use a bathmat or towel, you can easily take it with you on outings. The use of a longline in...
    PREMIER LEAGUE clubs may have to strike deals with 'red list' countries next month - as the Government is considering only a partial lifting of quarantine rules. Fifa persuaded Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Mexico to withdraw their complaints over the refusal of clubs to release players for World Cup qualifiers late on Friday. 1Thiago Silva was one of the Premier League stars caught up in the quarantine chaos earlier this monthCredit: Getty That prevented the clubs from having to ignore the world governing body’s automatic bans for the likes of Alisson, Ederson and Thiago Silva. In a statement confirming the U-turn, Fifa spoke of the 'positive signals and constructive dialogue' in talks with the Government to avoid a repeat next month and in November. But at this stage, it is understood that Public Health England remains unlikely to recommend a full quarantine exemption for players returning from red list nations. Those currently include all of South America and large areas of Asia and Africa. Instead, the favoured option will see the mandatory quarantine period reduced from the current ten days...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Aaron Judge hit a tying three-run homer off Alex Colomé with two outs in the eighth inning, Gary Sánchez lined a winning single in the 10th, and the New York Yankees overcame a five-run deficit to beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5 Monday. New York, its season spinning out of control in the last two weeks, won for just the fourth time in 16 games following a 13-game winning streak. It closed within a half-game of AL wild-card leaders Toronto and Boston with 18 games to play.

    Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee filed a discharge petition in an attempt to force a floor vote on a bill they said would help distribute rental assistance to low-income renters quicker. Committee Ranking Member Patrick McHenry said Democrats forced the hand of Republicans who first introduced the legislation, the Renter Protection Act, in June. Chairwoman Maxine Waters hasn’t pushed the committee to consider the bill, which is supported by every Financial Services Republican. A discharge petition is a legislative maneuver that enables a minority party in the House to bypass committee approval and force a floor vote on a piece of legislation. The petition requires signatures from a majority, or 218, of representatives to be successful. (RELATED: Why Are People Failing To Pay Rent When There’s Billions In Unspent Federal Aid?) “This whole process has been unacceptable,” McHenry said during a committee hearing Friday. “It has been two months since the federal eviction moratorium expired and several weeks since the Supreme Court struck down President Biden’s last-minute extension.

    CRISTIANO RONALDO wants £510,000-a-week to join Manchester City from Juventus. Such a deal would make him City's highest earner by a mile which could upset others in the squad. 2Cristiano Ronaldo wants more than half a MILLION pounds-a-week to join Man CityCredit: AP SunSport can reveal there are still many obstacles and issues to overcome if a deal is to be struck. But the transfer is by no means off the table. For example, Juventus want around £25million or a player in return for Ronnie - who has a year left on his Juve contract - which the Cityzens are reluctant to do at this stage.

The Tonga star believes he and his Test colleagues could join up with the best of Samoa, Fiji, Cook Islands and Papua New Guinea to face a home nation. 2 Tui Lolohea has floated the idea of a Pacific All Stars side facing a home nation this AutumnCredit: SWPIX.COM Australia and New Zealand’s withdrawal – and NRL clubs’ reluctance to release players from other nations - scuppered hopes of the tournament being staged this year. England hope to set up at least one match against France, while Jamaica want to set up one against Scotland. But Salford ace Lolohea feels now he and his Pacific brethren are stuck on the other side of the world, they may as well play. The New Zealand-born star said: “It’s probably a long shot but it would be a good thing if you got a Pacific All Stars team to play against say Scotland or Ireland. “It’s disappointing the World Cup is off...
    Who have experienced the loss of a child, they assure that it is the worst blow that anyone can receive in life, something that can hardly be overcome and that only the passage of time can provide the relief and resignation to move forward. Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic not only did thousands of people around the world have to say goodbye to their parents but also many parents have had to say goodbye to their children. That was what they lived a British marriage of Susan Slater, 74, and her husband Canvey Island, 55, who recently lost one of their children to COVID-19; However, life would have a pleasant surprise in store for them to overcome this pain. It turns out that days Before their son Steve passed away, both Susan and Canvey won about $ 1,200 each in a lottery. of postcodes of the town in which they live in England. But 2 weeks after Steve’s departure, the couple won another $ 31,000 in another lottery drawing. “When I got the phone call for this, I told...
    It’s been nearly three months since anyone other than the Giants led the National League West, but a surging Dodgers club has whittled San Francisco’s advantage atop the division while a handful of concerns about the team’s recent play could be considered red flags. With 38 games left to play, the Giants hold a 2.5-game lead over the Dodgers and will play their final head-to-head series against their rivals over Labor Day weekend at Oracle Park. Those games should go a long way toward deciding the division, which is especially important considering neither club wants to have its chances of playing deep into the postseason dependent on winning the wild card game. At the outset of spring training, most Giants fans would have been thrilled about the possibility of the team securing a wild card berth. Expectations changed quickly as the Giants raced out of the gates and then proved they could challenge the Dodgers and Padres atop the division. Now, ending the Dodgers’ streak of winning eight consecutive NL West titles has become a clear objective,...
    by Meghan McMurtry, University of Guelph Think of the last time you were really afraid — and I mean terrified: Cold sweats, trembling, pounding heart. Now think about what it would be like to have that reaction if you saw a needle or even heard people talking about COVID-19 vaccines. For about 1 in 10 people, this is their reality, and it matters for COVID-19 vaccine campaigns. First, when we are highly anxious about something, we tend to avoid or delay it. Second, experiencing high fear and a stress response can lead to escape behaviour (like leaving or acting aggressively), enduring the procedure under immense distress and experiencing symptoms of immunization stress-related responses, such as feeling dizzy or fainting. Third, needle fears can, in turn, be increased by experiencing or hearing about an immunization stress-related responses from others. The critical thing to know is that these immunization stress-related responses do not result from something being wrong with the vaccine itself. Instead, they can occur before, during and after injections due to a...

    NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — Norm Bloom enjoys watching his 5-year-old grandson, Jack, out on one of their oyster boats dressed in his little waders, helping the crew as they pull in dredge cages full of the shellfish from the bottom of Norwalk Harbor. “He’d be out there on deck all day every day if he could,” Bloom said, during a recent harvesting trip with his son, Jimmy. “Or maybe it will be Jack’s little sister Grace; she loves to get dirty. She might end up being the next oysterman in the family.” Whatever the case, Norm and Jimmy Bloom are confident that Copps Island Oysters, the family’s 12,000 acre (4,856 hectare) oyster farming business that has been in Norwalk since the 1940s, will have a next generation. That wasn’t always clear. Connecticut’s oyster industry is once again thriving, about 25 years after it almost disappeared, decimated by MSX, a parasitic disease that attacks oysters. Government and private efforts to clean up Long Island Sound, develop disease-resistant shellfish and find new markets have helped aquaculture become a $30 million a year...
    SHE is the ex-wife of one of the World’s richest rappers and a mother of four - but Kim Scott has battled depression, addiction and more than her fair share of grief in her 46 years.

Her tempestuous relationship with 48-year-old Eminem, who mocked her in songs and fantasised about murdering her, drove her to attempt suicide and she has battled depression and addiction throughout her adult life. Before her latest suicide attempt, Kim posted a heartfelt message to her mum, who died on July 23, writing “You're all I had left...
    More On: new york yankees Yankees in disbelief as another player goes on COVID IL Yankees, White Sox making own ‘Field of Dreams’ sequel Update on Anthony Rizzo and other Yankees on COVID-19 list Yankees can’t afford too many more clunkers like this KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After the Yankees put another player on the injured list, they went out and won another game. They beat the Royals, 5-2, Wednesday on a day in which the heat index soared well over 100 degrees at Kauffman Field. The Yankees scored three runs in the first and used six pitchers to win their seventh game in their last nine, as they battle for a playoff spot with 20 players shelved. And once again, it didn’t come easy, as the Royals brought the potential tying run to the plate with one out in the bottom of the ninth thanks to a hit by pitch and an error before the struggling Zack Britton got pinch-hitter Carlos Santana to hit into a game-ending double play. Clay Holmes became the latest Yankee to be shelved,...
    "One of my main worries after graduating isn't necessarily securing a job but is being accepted in the workplace," said Marlee Kopetsky, a biomedical engineering student with a focus in psychology at Stevens Institute of Technology.Marlee Kopetsky is a junior at Stevens Institute of Technology, majoring in biomedical engineering with a focus on psychology.Photo: Dana KopetskyWomen have made strides in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math): They made up 27% of STEM workers in 2019, compared with just 8% in 1970, according to research from the U.S. Census Bureau. But, that means that men still make up 73% of all STEM workers.  Many women who are in college and pursuing STEM careers, like me, share Kopetsky's concern. Although there has been an increase in the number of women in STEM careers, there are still many challenges we face that can make it intimidating when considering a job after college.  Three of the big challenges we face are 1) Confidence 2) Lack of mentorship and 3) Understanding our salary. There are many of us who feel this way, but we must...
    SAITAMA, Japan — Kevin Durant and the Americans still have their grip on gold and it’s going to take more than a few bad minutes for anyone to take it away from them. They were awful early, then awesome afterward against Australia. Durant scored 23 points, Devin Booker had 20 and the U.S. blew past and eventually blew away the Aussies, 97-78, on Thursday (Wednesday night PT) in the Olympic men’s basketball semifinals after falling into a 15-point hole. With their gold-medal streak looking in jeopardy midway through the second quarter, the Americans overwhelmed the Australians with a 48-14 stretch that gave them a 74-55 lead after three periods. The U.S. missed its first 10 3-point attempts and didn’t hit one until late in the second quarter, then it felt as if the Americans hardly missed again, with Booker making three 3-pointers. Jrue Holiday had 11 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for the U.S., which will play European champion Slovenia or France in its quest for a fourth consecutive gold medal Saturday. The French...
    Keyli Motino, a first-generation college student who was born in Honduras, began doubting her academic self-efficacy when she realized she was the only woman in her computer science class this spring. "I found myself just like, 'Do I really belong here?' My confidence was just down on the floor," said Motino, who recently completed her first year at Franklin and Marshall College. Keyli Motino, a first-generation college student, just completed her first year at Franklin and Marshall College.Source: Keyli MotinoIt's called impostor syndrome – when one perceives themselves as an intellectual and professional fraud —and she's not alone. More than half of women said they have felt like impostors, compared to only 24% of men, according to a study by Heriot-Watt University and the School for CEOs. And younger people were more prone to feeling like an impostor: 45% of young professionals compared to 30% of older professionals said they doubt their abilities. For Black and Latinx college women, the intersecting challenges of racism and sexism make them even more susceptible to impostor syndrome. A 2020 study by the Indian Institute...
    How has the pandemic affected Americas youth? Share your stories Seoul: North Korea releases army rice reserves amid shortage The United States men's basketball team has largely underwhelmed since arriving in Tokyo. They lost their first Olympic contest since 2004 against France, and their play against an inferior Czech squad was at times erratic despite ultimately winning the tilt by a 35-point margin. © Provided by NBC News Consistency has been Team USA's Achilles heel throughout these Olympics, and that trend continued once more in their quarterfinal matchup against Spain. Luckily, they still managed to pull out the massive victory against one of the top men's teams competing in Tokyo. Spain's Ricky Rubio was close to unguardable in the first quarter, finishing the game's first 10 minutes with 13 points to help orchestrate an 11-2 run to close out the opening stanza. Spain's defense began to impose its will on the U.S. from there, suffocating the Americans for much of the second quarter thanks to some strong play from Willy Hernangomez, who was a menace in the paint throughout...

    NHL teams combined for a series of splashes in free agency, managing to make major moves despite the salary cap staying flat for a third straight year. Over the first 12 hours of the signing period Wednesday, teams in the league signed 160-plus players to contracts worth more than $783 million. Five players were given contracts for six or seven years and another dozen unrestricted free agents landed deals that were four or five years long. Here’s a look at the biggest deals on Day 1: PHILIPP GRUBAUER The expansion Seattle Kraken pulled off the biggest surprise, signing Grubauer to $35.4 million, six-year deal. The 29-year-old Grubauer had an NHL-high seven shutouts last season for the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Colorado Avalanche. He was 30-9-1 last season with a 1.95 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage.
