    North Carolina State won its regular-season finale, but this time it wasn't so easy. Elissa Cunane had 17 points and nine rebounds, Jada Boyd added 16 points and 10 boards and the second-ranked Wolfpack held off Syracuse 68-61 on Sunday for their fifth consecutive win. N.C. State took a 51-38 lead into the fourth quarter but watched it disappear in a flash as the Orange went on a 20-4 run and seemed poised for the upset on Senior Day. Cunane's 3-point play gave N.C. State the lead back, 60-58, with just over two minutes to play and Boyd's follow in the final minute after one of Syracuse's 11 blocks helped seal the win. North Carolina State had won its previous four games by 19 points or more. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It was a rough day to me," N.C. State coach Wes Moore said.

    The Toronto Raptors’ issues with the coronavirus have worsened, prompting the NBA to call off their game scheduled for Sunday night against the Chicago Bulls. The league said the Raptors are dealing with positive test results, without disclosing how many, and that combined with ongoing contact tracing issues meant they would not have the league-required eight players available to play. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Toronto played Friday without head coach Nick Nurse, several other assistants and staffers and starting forward Pascal Siakam because of virus-related issues. Assistant coach Sergio Scariolo coached the team to a win over Houston and was in line to coach again Sunday. All NBA players and coaches are tested daily. The Raptors used 12 players on Friday and had 14 listed as available to play that night. For Sunday’s game, Siakam was the only player who had been listed on Saturday’s injury...
    Getty New Vikings wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell said Justin Jefferson was robbed of the Associated Press Rookie of the Year award. Newly hired Minnesota Vikings wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell has yet to work with Justin Jefferson, but that hasn’t stopped McCardell from adamantly defending his star receiver. In a recent video interview, McCardell was asked if Jefferson was snubbed of the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, which went to Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert instead. McCardell did not mince words. “He definitely got robbed,” McCardell said of Jefferson. “It’s a quarterback-driven league so they don’t give us any props as receivers.” Jefferson set the rookie receiving yards record with 1,400 on the season and finished the season as not only the top rookie wideout but one of the best in the league regardless of experience.

    JED WALLACE’S pre-match playlist has led Millwall to wrestle their way back into the play-off picture. The Lions winger has taken his role as squad DJ seriously by swapping generic pop tunes for WWE walkout music to get his team-mates fired up. 2Jed Wallace copies John Cena celebration after scoring against BirminghamCredit: Rex Features After going ten games without a win between October and December, the South Londoners’ aim of bettering last season’s eighth-place finish looked slim. But with the side now on an eight-game unbeaten run, Wallace’s tactics have got Millwall making their own ring-walk back towards the top six spots. Wallace, 26, joked: “I won’t take all the credit for it but I will definitely have some! “You have to play to your crowd. If I played ‘Fields of Gold’ by Sting or something like that, we certainly wouldn’t go out the way we would want to. “But...
    Editorial: Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums The new broadcast of the State of Play offered a fresh look at productions that will be available sometime this year. Although large productions attracted more attention, there was also room for indie titles that will soon arrive on these consoles. Among them was Solar Ash, the new game from the creators of Hyper Light Drifter. The developer Heart Machine and the distributor Annapurna Interactive took advantage of the most recent State of Play to present a new Solar Ash gameplay, after so many months without seeing an advance, as we remember that it was announced in a Sony presentation in mid-2020. Heart Machine Creative Director Alx Preston was commissioned to give a gameplay-rich look at their next project. As you can see in the new trailer below, Solar Ash will be a huge...
    JD Davis shrugs off the rumors and is happy to be a member of the Mets By: Andres Chavez February 25, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Mets, according to some, have a glaring hole at third base and needed to go after Justin Turner (who ended up re-signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers) or Kris Bryant via trade. However, that is not the case. Sure, JD Davis is not a good defensive third baseman. After all, the Mets’ slugger had a -8 Defensive Runs Saved (DRS) mark in 2020 and wasn’t much better in Ultimate Zone Rating (UZR) or Outs Above Average (OAA.) However, what he does carry is offensive potential. Last season, even after slashing an ugly .247/.371/.389 line, he had an above-average 116 wRC+. Most of his struggles hitting for power stem from the fact that his GB% increased from...
    PHOENIX (AP) — Malik Monk scored 29 points, LaMelo Ball added 20 points and eight assists and the Charlotte Hornets cooled off the Phoenix Suns with a 124-121 victory Wednesday night. Phoenix lost for just the second time in 11 games. Suns star Devin Booker missed an off-balance 3-pointer at the buzzer with replays showing Gordon Hayward made contact with Booker’s arm. There was no foul call and the play wasn’t reviewed. Hayward also had 20 points, including two free throws with 5.8 seconds left. Charlotte trailed for most of the first half, then rallied to take a 97-91 lead by the end of the third quarter. The Hornets pushed ahead by 11 points midway through the fourth but Phoenix scored 11 straight points — capped by Booker’ dunk — to tie it at 110. Charlotte responded with the next seven points. Two came on a perfect alley-oop pass from...

    A GENEROUS Internacional fan stumped up £133,000 of their own money so loan star Rodinei could play vs his parent club Flamengo... only for the player to get sent off. The loan signing was only allowed to feature due to the fan's intervention but his involvement was brought to an abrupt end. 2Rodinei was sent off against his parent clubCredit: Reuters Rodinei joined Internacional last year but he was prevented from facing Flamengo unless the club received a £133,000 payment. The Brazilian was amazingly cleared to play in the match after wealthy farmer Maggi Scheffer stumped up the huge payment. The club said: "We received a 1 million real ($185,794.18) donation from Elusmar Maggi Scheffer. "The Colorado fan ... signed an agreement that gives the club the money with no strings attached.

    MIDDLESBROUGH are back in the play-off hunt after coming from behind and hanging on with ten men against Huddersfield. Isaac Mbenza’s stunning free-kick broke the deadlock, but a moment of magic from Duncan Watmore and Ashley Fletcher’s penalty Boro to within three points of the top six. 1Duncan Watmore produced a magical strike as Boro came from behind against Huddersfield pic.twitter.com/hJNoxhRfDU— ????????????????????????????TEESSIDER????????????????????????????

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A three-week hiatus did little to diminish Michigan’s impressive resume: The Wolverines are still on top of the Big Ten, and they even moved up four spots in the AP Top 25 poll while idle. The big question now is how they will look when they return to the court this weekend — and whether coach Juwan Howard’s team can find a groove again after such an unusual layoff. “We trust as a staff that come Sunday we’ll be ready to play,” Howard said Friday. “I don’t know what it’s going to look like, but from start to finish we’re going to give our best effort.” Michigan hasn’t played since a Jan. 22 win at Purdue. A day after that, the school announced it was pausing its whole athletic department after positive tests for a new COVID-19 variant that transmits at a higher rate. Since...
    Getty Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving at TD Garden in Boston. When Kevin Durant announced that he would be joining Kyrie Irving on the Brooklyn Nets in the Summer of 2019 many people thought that the pairing could be extreme in one of two ways. It could be an epic failure or a huge success but there would be no gray area. Kyrie had a highly publicized exit from Cleveland and reportedly had locker room issues while he was with the Celtics. After an ugly exit from Boston, many people in the media began to paint Irving as a locker room cancer.

    PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Isaac Bonton scored 26 points and Washington State avenged an ugly 30-point blowout from four weeks earlier with an 81-73 win over UCLA on Thursday night. Bonton had four of the Cougars’ 13 3-pointers on 22 attempts (59%), which turned the tables on the Bruins. UCLA, which finished 5 of 20 behind the arc, were 9 of 16 from deep, shot 54% overall and made 16 of 18 free throws in a 91-61 victory on Jan. 14. When the Cougars opened the second half with a 17-5 run for a 59-37 lead with 12:25 to play, it had historians scrambling for the last time WSU beat UCLA by 20. It happened once in 1937, 48-25, but it was only WSU’s 19th win in 129 games in the series. But the Bruins slapped on the press and used an 8-0 run to steady the ship as the...

    Getty Rob Gronkowski will be a free agent this offseason. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a lot of key players on their roster that are set to hit free agency in March including Rob Gronkowski. Fresh off his two-touchdown performance in the Super Bowl, Gronkowski declared himself free agent for the first time in his career but indicated he planned to return to the Bucs. Last offseason, Tampa Bay worked out a trade with New England to pair the star tight end with Tom Brady. Gronkowski sat out the 2019 season but his retirement did not last long. “Yeah, I’ll remain unretired,” Gronkowski said after the Super Bowl. “You know, I’m a free agent. It’s the first time in my career that I’m a free agent. I signed basically like an eight-year contract [with the Patriots] which I played it all out. I signed that one when...

    Getty Russell Wilson wants the Seahawks to use more tempo in 2021. During a recent interview on Fox Sports’ The Herd with Colin Cowherd, Russell Wilson opened up about the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive struggles to close out the season. Cowherd noted that he believes the Seahawks offense became predictable and asked Wilson how he explained the late dropoff. Wilson took responsibility for needing to play better and offered a few explanations for the unit being stagnant. “We had such an electric, amazing start to begin the year,” Wilson explained. “I mean, we were able to do everything. We went for it every game, every play, every possession, everything else. We hit some bumps in the road. I could have played better. I should have played better. I can do my part, too, obviously as well.” Here is a look at Wilson’s full interview with Cowherd during Super...

    Demarcus Robinson’s close call with a team barber looks like it won’t keep him out of the Super Bowl. The Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver had been placed on the NFL’s COVID/reserve list earlier in the week after a barber brought in by the Chiefs tested positive for COVID-19, reportedly learning the news while he was in the middle of a haircut. Robinson had been deemed a close contact and was placed on the reserve list, but Yahoo Sports reported on Friday that he had been cleared to return to practice. As the outlet reported, Robinson has been one of the most steady receivers in an explosive offense, ranking second among receivers in offensive snaps. He caught 45 passes for 466 yards with three touchdowns this season. He has only one catch for 14 yards in the postseason, not receiving any targets in the win over the Buffalo Bills in...

    This is what an engaged Nets team can look like. And it’s impressive. With Brooklyn’s Big Three playing on a big stage Tuesday at Barclays Center, they stormed to a come-from-behind 124-120 statement win against the league-leading Clippers. After getting served a huge helping of humble pie in Sunday’s collapse at last-place Washington, the Nets bounced back against the best team in the NBA. “We knew they’re in contention for meeting us down the line, so we wanted to come out and make an impression,” said Kyrie Irving, who had a game-high 39. Trailing by a dozen early on, and five with under seven minutes to play, the Nets seized the momentum with a 13-0 run. Irving and James Harden (23 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds) led the way as the Nets (14-9) answered the call against a team many view as a potential foe in their stated goal —...
    Getty Richaun Holmes #22 of the Sacramento Kings tries to steal ball from Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors. The Golden State Warriors have had trouble at times keeping pace with points scored by other teams this 2020-21 NBA season. Going back to the 2014-15 NBA season, the Warriors have usually led the NBA in points. Only once during the 2018-19 season and last season as their stars were hurt have the Warriors not led the league. This season, the team ranks 15th in points scored per game. Part of this decline is due to their All-Star guard Klay Thompson being out with his torn right Achilles. The other major piece is this current group of Warriors looking for consistent scoring outside of their two-time MVP Steph Curry. However, one Warriors star is beginning to face backlash on social media for not “showing up in the...

    Contact tracing issues for the Memphis Grizzlies meant they would not have enough players eligible to play in Portland on Wednesday night, leading to the 16th game postponement for coronavirus-related reasons by the NBA this season. Of those, 15 have come since Jan. 10 and the number could rise again soon: Memphis is scheduled to play in Portland on Friday as well. The league has not made any announcement about whether that game will happen as planned. By NBA rule, teams must have eight eligible players for games; the Grizzlies would not meet that threshold because of “ongoing contact tracing,” the league said. The decision about the Portland-Memphis game came on the same day that the league, in a memo sent to teams and obtained by The Associated Press, reiterated some of the new stiffer protocols that were agreed to last week. Starting with Wednesday’s games, the NBA told teams...

    Lionel Messi was able to play his 36th final with Barcelona on the same stage where Michael Johnson broke the world record for the 400 meter dash in 1999. The Texan’s peculiar running style conquered the Sevillian public, who attended the feat in astonishment. Since that World Athletics World Cup, the Cartuja Stadium has hosted two Copa del Rey finals, one in the UEFA Cup and two Davis Cup finals, both won by Spain against the United States and Argentina. In that square of so many memories, this time empty, Messi finished the final with a historic red, the first of his career as a Barça player in an official duel (he did see the red twice with Argentina). Eclipsed by rivals like Williams, the Argentine was the image of impotence in the final stretch of extra time. His slap at Villalibre took him to the locker room in...
    Another NBA game was called off Sunday because of coronavirus concerns, and the Memphis Grizzlies said center Jonas Valanciunas will not play Monday because of the league’s health and safety protocols.

    The NBA called off two more games because of COVID-related and contact tracing issues, postponing Monday’s game in Dallas between the Mavericks and the New Orleans Pelicans as well as Tuesday’s matchup in Chicago between the Bulls and the Boston Celtics. Those moves come one day after Miami’s game in Boston was called off because of contact-tracing issues within the Heat, and would have been a matchup where the Celtics would have had only eight available players — after seven were ruled out in accordance with the league’s health and safety protocols for playing amid the ongoing pandemic. The Mavericks-Pelicans game and Bulls-Celtics game increase the total games postponed this season due to virus-related matters to four. The Heat are scheduled to play in Philadelphia on Tuesday — but, as of Monday afternoon, remained in their hotel in Boston, unsure of their next steps. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE...
    LONDON (AP) — Tottenham’s Premier League game against Aston Villa on Wednesday has been postponed, with Jose Mourinho’s team instead facing Fulham on the same day. Villa requested for its game against Tottenham to be rescheduled, the league said Monday, after a coronavirus outbreak at its training ground last week that led to 14 positive cases — 10 among players. The Tottenham-Fulham game, originally scheduled for Dec. 30, was postponed following an outbreak of the virus in the Fulham squad. Because Fulham is now playing against Tottenham in midweek, its match against Chelsea scheduled for Friday has now been pushed back to Saturday. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns finally caught a break when safety Ronnie Harrison, tight end Harrison Bryant and linebacker Malcolm Smith were activated from the COVID-19 list and can play in Sunday night’s wild-card game at Pittsburgh. The hard-hitting Harrison’s return helps a depleted Cleveland secondary missing cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Kevin Johnson, who remain on the COVID-19 list and will not play. Ward is the Browns’ best defensive back and his absence hurts as he would have been assigned to cover Juju Smith-Schuster or Chase Claypool, Pittsburgh’s top deep threats. Cornerback Terrance Mitchell’s status is also unclear. He’s been out — an issue not tied to an injury — and is listed as questionable. If he can’t play, Tavierre Thomas would likely take on a larger role. The sixth-seeded Browns (11-5) will make their first playoff appearance since the 2002 season short-handed.

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Oklahoma State senior receiver Tylan Wallace was asked by his coaches several times this season if he wanted to sit out the last series or two of a game. “He wouldn’t go out of the game,” Cowboys coach Mike Gundy said. “He wanted to finish.” After missing the end of last season because of a torn ACL, Wallace is the Big 12’s leading receiver and now gets one more college game in his hometown of Fort Worth, Texas. The No. 19 Cowboys (6-2, 5-2 Big 12, No. 15 CFP) play Saturday at TCU. “He had an injury and came back during a difficult year with the virus and a lot of players opting out, and just different reasons for kids to not come back and compete. And he’s done just the opposite of that,” Gundy said. “He’s finishing the season with his team...
    Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel strongly rebuked any notion that the Wolverines would try to avoid facing rival Ohio State in the regular-season finale, calling the notion “ridiculous” and infuriating in a scathing statement Wednesday.

(Photo by Benjamin Solomon/Getty Images) Manuel spoke hours after Michigan’s game against Maryland this weekend was canceled because of an outbreak of COVID-19 in the Wolverines’ program. The outbreak could also threaten Michigan’s annual rivalry game against Ohio State on Dec. 12 — and the Buckeyes’ chances to play for a Big Ten title. Ohio State had to cancel its game last week at Illinois because of a spike in COVID-19 cases in its program. It was the...

    The Jets have not gotten much impact out of their special teams units this season, but they finally had a breakthrough last week against the Chargers. Henry Anderson broke through to block a punt in the first quarter that set up a Jets touchdown and some early momentum. Special teams coordinator Brant Boyer said they had noticed an opening to exploit. “Well, we saw on tape that the slot would jump out, schemed it up during the week, we ran it all week, and the plan came together, so to speak,” Boyer said. “And so, he did a great job of swimming the slot, just like we thought. We tried to control the slot’s eyes with the guy inside him and it worked out just like we thought. Did a great job of going down to block the punt. It was a big point, I thought, to give...
