2 Syracuse women’s basketball players on Wooden Award watch list

Syracuse, N.Y. — The talented backcourt of the Syracuse women’s basketball team had its spotlight turned up even more on Tuesday.

Guards Kiara Lewis and Tiana Mangakahia were both named to the 30-player Wooden Award women’s preseason watch list. That puts them in the running for the Wooden Award All-America Team and Most Outstanding Player Award.

The honor is the latest in a string of accolades for the pair. Both are among the 50 players named to the 2020-21 Naismith Award watch list.

Mangakahia is one of 20 players nominated for the Nancy Lieberman Award, which recognizes the nation’s best point guard in Division I women’s basketball. Lewis was nominated for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, which recognizes the nation’s best shooting guard.

The Wooden Award All-America Team will be announced the week of the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament. The winner of the 2021 John R. Wooden

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Danny Garcia — How to watch, stream and buy the pay-per-view fight

Late in 2019, Errol Spence Jr. had a rather strong case to be considered the best boxer on the planet, pound-for-pound. He earned a split-decision win in September 2019 over Shawn Porter to unify the IBF and WBC welterweight titles. He was 26-0 with 21 KOs. Spence’s career was soaring.

Then a month later, everything Spence had worked for was nearly gone.

In the early morning hours of Oct. 10, Spence, who was driving his Ferrari at a high speed, was in involved in a “horrible accident.” He was ejected from the car, which flipped multiple times, but he managed to escape suffering broken bones. Now over a year later, the question for Spence is can he again thrive in the ring?

He’ll try to prove that he can when he takes on Danny Garcia at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday night. The welterweight title fight headlines a pay-per-view,

Real Madrid will look to advance to the round of 16 of the Champions League when the club faces Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine on Tuesday.

Iowa high school boys’ basketball 2020-21: Gazette area teams to watch

Here is a look at some of the boys’ basketball teams from The Gazette area to keep an eye on this season.

Alburnett


Linn County is absolutely loaded at the small-school level.


The Pirates went 15-8 last season, losing to state champion Wapsie Valley in a Class 1A second-round postseason game.


Starting forwards Shane Neighbor and Reed Stallman return. Neighbor averaged a team-best 15.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, Stallman 12.1 points and team-best 10.3 rebounds.


But it’s the comeback of senior guard Hunter Caves that makes this team so dangerous. He missed all of last season with a knee injury.


Caves averaged 13.8 points as a sophomore and was so integral in Alburnett’s run to the 1A state championship game in 2019. Throw in a tremendous veteran head coach in Jeff Christopherson, and the Pirates are going to be a handful for any

How to Watch Alabama Basketball in the Maui Invitational, TV Times, Tournament Bracket

They had to ditch their Hawaiian shirts, but the University of Alabama men’s basketball team will still play in a holiday tournament this week. 

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic making long-distance travel too risky, coupled with the unpredictable restrictions like Hawaii having a 14-day mandatory self-quarantine for anyone arriving in the state, this year’s version of the Maui Invitational will be held on the mainland.

Specifically, it’ll be at one of the furtherest venues imaginable, but surprisingly close to Tuscaloosa, at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center in Asheville, N.C. 

It host the Southern Conference tournament from 2012-14. 

While it’s not exactly the same as the 1942 Rose Bowl being held in Durham, N.C. following the start of World War II (the federal government prohibited large public gatherings on the West Coast following the attack on Pearl Harbor), it will be vastly different from the usual setup. 

The tournament is usually hosted

Watch Alabama’s DeVonta Smith, Auburn’s Seth Williams run identical routes: 1 for TD, other dropped

Two similar plays. Two very different results.

The plays demonstrated why No. 1 Alabama leads No. 22 Auburn 21-3 at halftime of the annual Iron Bowl.

Alabama’s DeVonta Smith and Auburn’s Seth Williams ran almost identical routes.

They were both wide open.

There was bracketed coverage with the corner and the safety on both plays. Both receivers made the safety bite.

The results couldn’t be any more different.

For Smith, the result was a 66-yard touchdown reception from Mac Jones to cap a four-play, 78-yard, first-quarter drive to give Alabama a 7-0 lead.

Auburn responded late in the second quarter with almost the same route. But for Williams, the ball went right through his hands and resulted in an incomplete pass on first-and-10 from the Auburn 42 with 41 seconds left in the first half and trailing 21-3. Four plays later, Nix was intercepted, and the scoring opportunity was wasted.

Ligue 1 hot seat watch: PSG’s Tuchel and Marseille’s Villas-Boas fight to right their ships

With most European leagues having reach double digits in terms of fixtures played, few have two high-profile coaches of big clubs under fire as Ligue 1 does with Marseille’s Andre Villas-Boas and Paris Saint-Germain’s Thomas Tuchel in increasing difficulty over the past few weeks.

Both French giants have struggled relative to their individual situations in the Champions League with the Parisiens having lost twice already and Marseille having not even scored a goal let alone picked up a point.

Marseille and PSG continue to push on at the top of the Championnat but Tuchel’s men have already suffered more defeats — three — than usual and one of those was an ill-tempered unbeaten series-ending home loss to OM.

It is an important period coming up with crucial domestic and continental encounters on the horizon and both the German and Villas-Boas needed positive results this weekend to take some of the

No. 3 Ohio State-Illinois live stream (11/28): How to watch college football online, TV, time

Update: Ohio State has canceled Saturday’s football game at Illinois because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the No. 4 Buckeyes’ program and has paused all team-related activities indefinitely after additional positive tests were revealed Friday evening, the school announced.

No. 3 Ohio State continues to put points up and will look to continue the momentum against Illinois on Saturday, Nov. 28. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV.

The problem, though, last week was the Buckeyes (4-0, 4-0 Big Ten, No. 4 CFP) had a comfortable four-touchdown lead early in the second half and had to survive an Indiana comeback to escape with a 42-35 win.

In their previous game, the Buckeyes allowed Rutgers to score 24 in the second half. Meanwhile, the Illini have won two straight.

Illinois (2-3, 2-3) running backs Mike Epstein and Chase Brown each had more than 100 rushing yards last week, together accounting

Virginia @ Florida State

Current Records: Virginia 4-4; Florida State 2-6

What to Know

The Virginia Cavaliers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. Virginia and the Florida State Seminoles will face off in an ACC battle at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday at Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium. The Cavaliers are cruising in on a three-game winning streak while FSU is stumbling in off of three consecutive losses.

You can’t lose the contest if you win every quarter, and that was precisely Virginia’s strategy against the Abilene Christian Wildcats last week. Virginia really took it to Abilene Christian for a full four quarters, racking up a 55-15 victory at home. That looming 40-point mark stands out as the most commanding margin for Virginia yet this year. It was another big night for their
