Ute H of F to honor Andre Miller, Elaine Elliott, Kevin Dyson, others this week.

Brazil outscored Spain 18-15 in the 2Q after giving up 30 points in the 1Q. ESP went from shooting 72% in 1Q, to 55% by half.

Half: Spain 45, Brazil 32. Splitter with 4 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, & 2 fouls.
Nenê is having a rough night against Pau Gasol.
Smooth Pau Gasol drive and kick for an open Serge Ibaka 15-footer. Spanish fans love it. Thunder fans can only dream.
Spain is too much fun.
BBL confirm they’ll run their weekly streamed game service BBL TV again this season. No word on a broadcast deal.
I have the worst FOMO of life.
Trade for Adam Dunn, score 4 runs per inning?
5:42 left in 2Q, Spain leads Brazil 33-23. BRA up 9-3 in 2Q, playing much better than that 1Q where they went down 18.
Pau & Varejao getting into it. Spain coach yelling at the scorer's table. This game is pretty intense for pool play.
Spain has size, shooting, defenders & legit home-court advantage. Team USA, I'm afraid, has a problem or two to deal with in a final v Spain
That was Chooch’s third no-hitter. He’s one behind Varitek for the most in MLB history.
Splitter enters the game, matched up with Serge Ibaka.
Mariners already have somebody up in the bullpen. Young just threw his 29th pitch in the 1st.
Brazil on 9-1 run to start 2Q, Spain's lead has gone from 18 to 8 very quickly.

(Fixed): Oswalt, Munro, Saarloos, Lidge, Dotel, Wagner is the best combined no-no
Looking more and more like a Djokovic/Murray QF on Wednesday. Andy up 2 sets to love.
Combined no-hitter. Very strange. Not sure anyone in the ballpark even knew.
they should mob Chooch.
If World Cup Pau Gasol shows up for the Bulls, good luck teams in the Eastern Conference.
BTW, Spain's 30 points in the first quarter came on just 17 possessions.
Orton, asked about Dallas exit. "We play Bears and I play for Bills. I kind of stick with those two teams for now and I worry about that."
Pau Gasol, who decided to go to Chicago over SA & OKC, scored 12 points in the 1Q on 6/7 shooting.
Dunn is so big it's hard for the A's to do the post-HR tunnel thing with him in the dugout.
Spain destroying Brazil after one. USA would have to score a lot to beat them, because their offense is just too good to be stopped.
1Q: Spain 30, Brazil 14. Tiago Splitter with 2 points, 1 foul in opening 6 minutes. ESP shooting 72%, BRA 38%.
Spain’s marquee player is off to a Pauerful start.
Spain absolutely working Brazil early on. Pau Gasol all in his bag of tricks today
The watch is on: Combined no-hitter alert for Phillies going into 9th and leading Braves 7-0 on ESPN
18 point game for Spain in the first quarter...
If LeBron is seeing what Pau is doing to Varejao, he might ask for a rewrite to delete him from the letter.
1:15 left in 1Q, Spain is shooting 69% from the floor, Brazil 36%. ESP holding 26-12 lead.
The Gasol brothers looking really fit for Gasol standards.
Spain’s two bigs are dominating.
Yep, Spain is pretty darn good. And now they bring in Ibaka.
How much more do your Nikes cost now to offset Kevin Durant’s megadeal?
And Spain casually goes up 14 on Brazil. Brazil having to work for everything and anything.
Pau Gasol dominating in FIBA competition like in the old days.
Cowboys waive DB Jamea Thomas to make room on the roster for LB Korey Toomer.
I have first pick of my fantasy draft. Should I take Peyton Manning? McCoy? Adrian Peterson? Or someone else suggestions welcome
Tiago Splitter is going to take ALL the jump hooks.
Man, listen ... http://t.co/XbEDEk7ri7
Not sure how I feel about Marc Gasol’s short haircut.
Brazil v Spain just starting - I think this is a semi-final rehearsal
Tiago missed his first post-up over Marc Gasol, but then made the second.
Big game about to get started here in Granada. Brazil (2-0) vs. Spain (2-0).
Giles should pitch until he gives up a fair ball.
Coastal Carolina is now the No. 4/5 team in the country. Highest ranked team Monmouth has ever played is No. 2 Montana St. in the '13 opener
Nikos Zisis was the top scorer for Greece with 19 points
World Cup, Group C: Puerto Rico 79-90 Greece (Balkman 23 - Zisis 19). Greeks have brought their chemistry set.
that slider is unfair.
Giannis picks Balkman's pocket, then flies in for the layup despite an intentional foul call. Makes the FT for 15 pts.
Random: did EU ever have an album? Or just that "one" song?
2015s Dwayne Bacon and Jean-Marc Christ Koumadje will both visit Florida State this coming weekend. Bacon was at USC this weekend.
With Papanikolaou struggling and Greece up double-digits, Giannis getting some extended run with starters in 4th quarter. Nice.
Giannis throw the perfect home run ball to beat Puerto Rico pressure, but Bourousis blows the chippy.
Giannis adds two more free throws after a give-and-go from inbounds. Now 12 points (4/9 fg, 4/6 ft) in 18 minutes.
Great anecdote from Johnny Mac about how he used to follow Vitas Gerulaitis around hoping to get into Studio 54.Had a better chance w/ Vitas
Giannis can't find his jumper, but now with 10 points after a couple of finishes cutting in from the left baseline.
Since Kobe made the change from 8 to 24 in 2006, no Laker has worn his old number and I don't see it changing anytime soon.
Excellent game by Calathes, Zisis, Sloukas and Bourousis who lead Greece to the win vs Puerto Rico (76-61,34') & to the 3-0.
If I remember correctly, Kobe wants No. 24 to be retired by the Lakers. I'm sure they'll do that in addition to no Laker wearing No. 8 again
108 pitches and he’s out? Damn. Is he hurt? Charlie would ride the lightning.
Olive Garden has entered the "We gave our food to food snobs without telling them and they said it was amazing" commercial game.
sorry … I just got home. Why is Hamels out of the game?
Arroyo is out, Barea cant do a lot alone and Balkman hustles in and outside the paint. P.Rico is 16 points behind (68-52, 30') Greece.
Greece leads Puerto Rico 68-52 after three quarters
Sky vs. Fever in 30 minutes fyi
The carbon footprint of this Sky deadlineathon doesn't seem worth it.
Crowd is down quite a bit from yesterday, even though this is the final. People that traveled long distances have work and school tomorrow.
Murray takes the 1st set from Tsonga, 7-5. Winner gets Djokovic in quarters.
Excellent ESPN profile on Jerry Jones. Very well done.
Just left the Plano Luxury of Leather and they have absurd deals until 7:00 today if you're out and about and looking around. We scored...
Terrence Roderick has opted-out of agreement with Boulogne, per source. Among top all-around guards in Israel last season.
Carolina coach Ron Rivera says he's "still confident" QB Cam Newton (broken rib) will start Sunday vs. Tampa Bay
Wolves prospect Nemanja Bjelica had best game so far today, w/ 18 pts (6/11 FGs), 10 rebs, 2 asts, 1 stl in 35 mins in 83-70 win over Iran
Top fuel final: Steve Torrence vs. Richie Crampton.
Great defense by Bourousis on Santiago and Greece leads by 13 (54-41, 24') vs P. Rico
Correction on the spelling: It is Steve Torrence.
Rolando McClain: "I still love the game like I’m an 8-, 9-year old kid."

Tried out Babb Bros. BBQ today. Pulled pork, good. Brisket, very good.
Giannis back out as Papanikolaou comes back in w/Greece up 36-31. 5 pts (2/2 twos, 0/2 threes, 1/2 ft) and 1 reb in 9 minutes for Giannis.
1/3 of the Greek points are by Calathes (12 of 36)!
Best ticket in tennis today: a $68 Grounds Pass & a seat at Louis Armstrong gets you the Bryan Brothers, Djokovic, Genie Bouchard & Wawrinka
Giannis misses the corner 3, then races up court for a huge slam off the nice feed from Zisis. Now 3/3 on twos, 0/5 on threes in 3 gms.
3 foul for Printezis! Thats huge problem for Greece!
Balkman looks he's spent the past few months sleeping at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, which would explain why he's playing so well.
Another nice cut from Giannis, this time gets the layup. 3 pts, 1/2 fg, 1/2 ft.
Last season, the Suns were 27-13 when Eric Bledsoe started, 21-21 when he didn't.
Terrance Knighton to empty fridge - "We've got a situation." http://t.co/11gHmsyKRt
Now I've seen it with my own eyes: The Brewers are awful right now. Crew vs. Cubs at Wrigley...
Corona-Rita. Must move to beach. http://t.co/ND9d4skfaD
Giannis with the cut and draws a foul with Greece down 24-22 early in the second quarter. Well short on the 1st free throw, hits the 2nd.
Puerto Rico controls the game and is one point behind Greece (20-19, 10'). The Greeks dont post up w/o Santiago and dont score in the fb
Can't decide who was more dominant in the 70s, Stevie Wonder or Kareem.
Flags at Wrigley: whipping straight out. Gonna see some runs today...
A backcourt comprised of Rondo and Stephenson in Charlotte would have way too much defensive gambling.
Djokovic up 2 sets to love on Kohlschreiber....Murray/Tsonga up soon on Ashe.
Calathes the penetrator! The guard creates and executes! Greece leads 17-11 (6') vs P. Rico
Melvin said from what he's heard from the players today, "I think to an extent maybe it was welcome."
Tyler Anderson (hamstring) & will Hopkins (hand) practicing & will travel to Hawaii. Grant bays (back) not practicing
Was yesterday's blow-up spontaneous? Melvin: "Whenever you come to a boiling point like that, that’s not something that is choreographed...
Started a question to Bob Melvin by saying he'd been calm through much of the A's slump, which is when he jumped in: "I’m calm today!"
Djokovic just saved a set point with a sick crosscourt forehand winner and then cupped hand to ear to exhort the roaring crowd
I love that Dwyane Wade's wedding was themed "Hollywood As Hell".
Perhaps their sales pitch rocks. Also important to circle back and see if their take was more sizzle or steak. Goes for any of us.
hi this is kelsi
I mention that not to pat the Skins on the back. Some pundits are thought to know their $hit cause they talk loud and proud.
Capps wins easily after Worsham has engine problems and barely gets off line; John Force beats Hagan when he has trouble with track.
In wake of ESPN report of Kings waiving Wayne Ellington, sure seems like a name that could make sense for Heat. Must first clear waivers.
Georgetown and Indiana will play Dec. 27 at MSG
Unfortunately for BYU, this talk about a 12-0 season has given Middle Tennessee and Savannah State some juicy bulletin board material.
Interesting that after some pundits crushed the Skins for cutting Seastrunk and Thompson, neither got scooped up by another team.
Philbin said punt and KO return jobs are open with Thigpen gone. Landry logical on punts; Landry, Damien Williams or Darkwa K-returnoptions.
Lazor understandably declined to say if Dolphins will play with much quicker pace in reg. season. Bob Griese has said they will.
Through 3 games, Diaw's only having to average 19.0 minutes per game, 7.3 points, 4.3 assists, and 4.0 boards.
On the bright side for Texas, it's not like Tyrone Swoopes is inexperienced. This is where that big post-midnight series at TCU pays off.
It's looking like Serbia, Spain, Brazil, and France are going to be locks for the round of 16.
By the end of today, Serbia, France, and either Brazil or Spain will all be 2-1, BRA or ESP will be 3-0.
Barely an empty seat out here on Louis Armstrong for Djokovic-Kohlscreiber....Hot and humid, too. http://t.co/phnnkndBdE
Up next, a battle of undefeated teams in Group A, as Tiago Splitter & Brazil will face the Gasols & Spain
FIBA World Cup, Group A: Serbia 83-70 Iran, France 93-55 Egypt. Group B: Argentina 85-81 Philippines
Diaw & Les Bleus will be off tomorrow, but then face powerhouse Spain on Wednesday, followed by Iran on Thursday.
5. Ash calls trainers that night complaining of headaches and dizziness. He later tells coaches he thinks the first hit did it.
4. Ash does not do his usual postgame media availability, but Strong says the coaching staff was not aware of any issues when he left.
3. In the fourth quarter, he gets knocked around on a fumbled snap in the end zone. Again, no reported problems.
2. Supposedly, trainers check on him after every series. He takes several more hits but never reports any issues.
Lazor said Lamar Miller's production needs to be improve and "be decisive in the backfield. I have no doubts about how explosive he can be."
1. On the first play of UT's second possession, he picks up a fumble and gets hit in the head. He pops right back up, shows no ill effects.
So, from what we've gathered, the timeline of Ash's injury is as follows:
Dolphins OC Bill Lazor: "I feel very good about the talent level we have. It's time to put up some points."
Final: France 94, Egypt 55. Nicolas Batum: 15 minutes, 9 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 turnover, 1 block, 4/5 FG, 1/1 3PT.
France moves to 2-1 in Group Phase play with a 94-55 victory over Egypt. Boris Diaw only had to play in the 1st half, scored 3 pts, 3 asts.
Amare asks little man to do some rebounding... He having a good day @imgacademy http://t.co/rhjad3O84O
There;s some wounded pride here as Danny Welbeck has been the butt of my endless jokes during every England game over the last three years.
France's defense has been spectacular today. Have held Egypt to 15 points (1Q), 11 pts (2Q), 10 pts (3Q), & right now 7 pts in 4Q.
Aware he didn't play central striker that year. But fail to see how any of this makes him better than Joel Campbell.
Coyle downplaying the team's preseason issues with tackling, says it's a common problem with any team early on due to various factors.
A reminder that Danny Welbeck scored 2 goals in 40 games in 2012/13.
After playing 69 minutes in the first two days, looks like Nicolas Batum will get a 4th quarter to rest with France up 32 on Egypt.
Can we give the Philippines a wild card into the round of 16?
