The Edmonton Oilers have taken the Stanley Cup Final to a deciding Game 7 thanks to a 5-1 home victory over the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Warren Foegele collected one goal and one assist, while Adam Henrique, Zach Hyman, Ryan McLeod and Darnell Nurse scored one goal apiece for the Oilers, who have erased a 3-0 deficit in the best-of-seven championship series and forced a winner-take-all clash Monday in Florida.

Goaltender Stuart Skinner made 20 saves and also recorded an assist.

Edmonton will attempt to join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs as the only teams to trail 3-0 and win the Stanley Cup.

The only other team to reach Game 7 in the finals when trailing 3-0 is the 1945 Detroit Red Wings, who coincidentally lost to the Maple Leafs in 1942. Detroit forced a deciding game with three consecutive victories only to lose Game 7 to Toronto.

Aleksander Barkov notched the only goal for the Panthers, who have been outscored 18-5 in the trio of losses. Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 16 shots.

The Oilers had the early momentum and finally cashed in at the 7:27 mark of the first period when Foegele converted Leon Draisaitl’s pass on an odd-man rush for his third goal of the playoffs.

Henrique doubled the lead 46 seconds into the second period. Mattias Janmark sent a pass during a two-on-one rush that Henrique converted with a one-timer off the post and into the net for his fourth of the playoffs.

The Panthers then built some momentum but suffered a crushing blow when Hyman made it 3-0 by burying a breakaway chance for his 16th goal of the postseason at 18:20 of the second period.

Barkov, who appeared to score within seconds after it became a 2-0 game only to see it overturned thanks to a successful offside challenge by the Oilers, put the Panthers on the board 88 seconds into the third period with his eighth goal of the playoffs, but to trim Florida’s deficit to 3-1.

Empty-net goals by McLeod — his fourth of the playoffs and third in the series — and Nurse rounded out the scoring.


The Minnesota Wild acquired Graeme Clarke from the New Jersey Devils on Friday in exchange for fellow forward Adam Beckman.

Both players are 23 years old. They were drafted five picks apart in the third round in 2019, with Beckman going 75th overall and Clarke 80th.

Clarke, a Minnesota native, made his NHL debut in 2023-24 and appeared in three games with zero points for the Devils.

Beckman played in each of the past three seasons for the Wild, accumulating three assists across 23 games.

Both played primarily in the AHL last season, with Clarke notching 49 points (25 goals, 24 assists) in 67 games at Utica and Beckman delivering 33 points (19 goals, 14 assists) in 51 games at Iowa.


Forward Andrew Cogliano announced Friday that he is retiring after 17 NHL seasons, and the Colorado Avalanche said he will move into the front office.

Cogliano, 37, spent the past three seasons playing for the Avalanche, capping a career in which he appeared in 1,294 regular-season games.

“The game of hockey has given me and my family so much and I am grateful for every moment,” the Toronto native said. “I am blessed to have played for so long with some great organizations and amazing teammates. I will miss being with the guys in the dressing room and battling for each other on the ice every night but it’s time to move on. Thank you to everyone I ever played with, played for and all the great fans for all of their support. I am excited to start my new chapter in the front office.”

Cogliano tallied 464 points (190 goals, 274 assists) with the Edmonton Oilers (2007-11), Anaheim Ducks (2011-19), Dallas Stars (2019-21), San Jose Sharks (2021-22) and Colorado, which acquired him on March 21, 2022, for a fifth-round pick in the 2024 NHL Draft.

He played in 131 career postseason games and was part of the Colorado team that won the 2022 Stanley Cup.

Cogliano’s career was highlighted by his durability. The former first-round draft pick played 830 consecutive games at the start of his career, not missing a game between Oct. 4, 2007, and Jan. 13, 2018. In all, he dressed for 98 percent of his teams’ combined 1,321 games.

In his new role, he will work in player development, professional and amateur scouting, and with the Colorado Eagles of the American Hockey League.

“He is a true pro, a fierce competitor, a great teammate and leader, and a mentor for younger players,” Avalanche general manager Chris MacFarland said of Cogliano. “He always set the example for the rest of the group with his hard work on and off the ice and his preparation and details. And while we will miss him on the ice, we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board with our organization in this new role. He will be an invaluable resource with his unique knowledge of the game and his many years of experience to help the next generation of Avalanche players.”


The scheduled auction of a land parcel in north Phoenix was canceled on Friday, prompting the Arizona Coyotes to declare that the move “seriously jeopardizes the future of NHL hockey returning to the desert.”

Alex Meruelo sold his existing hockey franchise to the owners of the Utah Jazz in April, and the club was moved to Salt Lake City. However, Meruelo retained the rights to the Arizona Coyotes name, and the NHL awarded him the right to start an expansion franchise if he were able to build a new arena in the Phoenix area in the next five years.

The Coyotes’ plan was to build on the north Phoenix lot that was set to be auctioned off by the Arizona State Land Department next Thursday. However, the state scrapped the auction, stating that the Coyotes need to receive a special-use permit to build the 17,000-plus-seat arena they have proposed.

The ASLD’s statement included, “It is not uncommon for ASLD to require applicant to secure zoning/use permits prior to auction.”

The team responded in a statement, “The Arizona Coyotes are exploring all our legal options given this shortsighted decision by the state.”

The Coyotes added, “The organization has worked in good faith with the ASLD and has been on track to win the auction next week until the sudden reversal by ASLD today. … By cancelling the land auction, the state is forgoing millions, and potentially billions, of dollars that would have gone directly to K-12 education.”

Jim Waring, the Phoenix councilman whose city covers the land the Coyotes hope to buy, told the Arizona Republic, “(The Coyotes should) get a zoning attorney. They don’t have one. Get in the city, come up with a plan and go through the process. Then buy it.”


Taylor Ward delivered a tiebreaking single in the top of the 10th inning as the Los Angeles Angels notched a 3-2 victory over the host Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday in the opener of a two-game set.

The Dodgers’ Shohei Ohtani hit a massive two-run homer and reached base four times in his first game against his former team, but his 455-foot blast accounted for all of his team’s runs. Ohtani had two of the Dodgers’ five hits. Ward had two of his team’s four hits as the Angels snapped a 10-game losing streak against the Dodgers.

Jo Adell was the runner on second to start the Angels’ 10th, and he was sacrificed to third. Evan Phillips replaced Anthony Banda (1-1) and retired one hitter before Ward came up with two outs and ripped a single to the left of Dodgers third baseman Enrique Hernandez and into left field.

In the bottom of the 10th, pinch runner Cavan Biggio was on second and advanced to third on a groundout. Carlos Estevez then struck out Hernandez and Gavin Lux to end it for his 14th save of the season. Angels reliever Luis Garcia (2-0) allowed one hit in two innings of scoreless ball.

Astros 14, Orioles 11

Jake Meyers clubbed a go-ahead, three-run home run in the fifth inning before Joey Loperfido recorded a pair of doubles in a nine-run sixth as Houston outlasted visiting Baltimore.

Loperfido and Jose Altuve each recorded three hits and two RBIs for Houston, which won its third game in a row. Reliever Shawn Dubin (1-1) earned his first major league win by pitching 2 1/3 innings, and Bryan Abreu earned his first save.

Gunnar Henderson homered twice for the Orioles, who also got long balls from Anthony Santander and Jorge Mateo. Adley Rutschman went 5-for-5. Orioles starter Grayson Rodriguez (8-3) allowed seven runs on nine hits over five-plus innings.

Mets 11, Cubs 1

J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer in the first inning to power another outburst by red-hot New York, which cruised past host Chicago in the opener of a three-game series.

Jose Iglesias tied a career high with four hits and added three RBIs for the Mets, who have won 14 of 19, a span in which they have scored at least 10 runs in a game five times. New York reached double figures just once in its first 55 games.

Shota Imanaga (7-2) yielded 10 runs on 11 hits in three-plus innings for the Cubs, who fell to 9-18 since May 22.

Rays 10, Pirates 3

Josh Lowe hit two home runs while going 3-for-5 with four RBIs to help visiting Tampa Bay defeat Pittsburgh.

Colin Poche (1-1) replaced starter Ryan Pepiot in the fourth and tossed a perfect 1 2/3 innings for the Rays, who totaled 17 hits and won for the fourth time in five games.

The Pirates’ Bryan Reynolds homered to extend his major-league-leading hitting streak to a career-high 18 games. Pittsburgh starter Carmen Mlodzinski (1-3) allowed one run on four hits in 1 2/3 innings.

Diamondbacks 5, Phillies 4

Gabriel Moreno belted a two-run homer and Joc Pederson and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. also went deep to fuel visiting Arizona past Philadelphia.

Each of the three had two hits and Geraldo Perdomo added an RBI single to send the Diamondbacks to their eighth win in 11 games. Arizona (38-38) reached the .500 mark for the first time since it was 9-9 on April 16.

Trea Turner launched a two-run homer and added an RBI single for the Phillies, who have lost six of their past nine games.

Braves 8, Yankees 1

Ozzie Albies and Austin Riley homered in the first inning and Chris Sale pitched five solid innings while combining with four relievers on a three-hitter as visiting Atlanta rolled past slumping New York.

Albies hit a two-run homer off a Carlos Rodon fastball on the game’s second pitch and Riley hit a solo shot as the Braves jumped out to a 3-0 lead.

The Yankees lost their third straight and also fell to 2-6 in their past eight games. New York has allowed 32 runs in its past three games.

Guardians 7, Blue Jays 1

Carlos Carrasco allowed one run and struck out a season-high seven over six innings and Cleveland exploded for seven runs in the second inning while rolling over visiting Toronto.

Josh Naylor had two hits and two RBIs during the big inning. Carrasco (3-6) yielded only Vladimir Gurrero Jr.’s fourth-inning homer. He gave up four hits and no walks.

Returning from the injured list, Toronto’s Yariel Rodriguez (0-2) wound up allowing five runs — four earned — in 1 1/3 innings.

Reds 5, Red Sox 2

Jeimer Candelario hit two solo home runs to propel Cincinnati over visiting Boston.

Candelario has a team-high 14 home runs this season and has hit eight homers in June. It was his second multi-homer game of the month. Reds starter Andrew Abbott (6-6) struck out 10 while throwing 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball, and Alexis Diaz handled the ninth for his 17th save.

Connor Wong and Jarren Duran hit solo home runs for the Red Sox. Wong and Duran each had two hits in the loss, and each owns an 11-game hitting streak. Kutter Crawford (3-7) permitted five runs (three earned) in 6 1/3 innings.

Tigers 2, White Sox 1

Carson Kelly hit a two-run homer and host Detroit snapped a four-game losing streak by edging Chicago.

Tigers starter Jack Flaherty (5-4) gave up one run and five hits while striking out eight in 5 2/3 innings. Beau Brieske pitched two innings, and Jason Foley got the last four outs for his 13th save.

Tommy Pham homered for the White Sox, who have lost three straight. Erick Fedde (5-2) gave up two runs and five hits in seven innings. He retired the last 14 batters he faced.

Rangers 6, Royals 2

Marcus Semien drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double to highlight a five-run sixth inning, leading Texas over Kansas City in Arlington, Texas.

Nathaniel Lowe had three hits, including a double, and a run, Wyatt Langford went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs and Jonah Heim walked three times and also had an RBI and a run as Texas took the opener of a three-game series for its second consecutive win.

Kyle Isbel homered and MJ Melendez doubled and scored a run for the Royals, who lost for the fourth time in five games. John Schreiber (3-2) allowed three runs on three hits in one-third of an inning.

Nationals 11, Rockies 5

Drew Millas homered and finished with three hits, Luis Garcia Jr. also went deep, and Washington beat Colorado in Denver.

Lane Thomas had three hits, four RBIs and finished a home run shy of hitting for the cycle while Jacob Young and CJ Abrams also had three hits apiece for Washington. Every batter in the lineup reached base for the Nationals, who had a season-high 19 hits.

Ezequiel Tovar had three hits, including a homer, Nolan Jones also went deep, and Hunter Goodman hit a two-run shot for the Rockies.

A’s 6, Twins 5

Shea Langeliers hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning, Oakland closer Mason Miller pitched a 1-2-3 ninth and the Athletics edged visiting Minnesota.

Langeliers and Tyler Soderstrom each had two hits and three RBIs for the A’s, who were swept in a four-game series in Minnesota last week. Sean Newcomb (1-0) got the win over Jhoan Duran (3-3), and Miller logged his 14th save.

Willi Castro finished with a homer, a double, three RBIs and two runs as the Twins lost their third straight. Royce Lewis hit his 10th homer in 16 games this season.

Marlins 3, Mariners 2 (10 innings)

Tim Anderson lined a walk-off single in the 10th inning as host Miami defeated Seattle for its third straight walk-off win, something the club had not done since 1999.

On a first-pitch fastball by reliever Austin Voth (2-1), Anderson singled to left fielder Dominic Canzone, who made a strong throw home. But catcher Cal Raleigh couldn’t come up with a short hop, and automatic runner Jake Burger came in to score.

Miami’s bullpen provided 3 2/3 scoreless innings. Anthony Bender (2-2) was part of that effort as he earned the win with one scoreless frame.

Padres 9, Brewers 5

Jake Cronenworth’s first career five-hit game included a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning, helping San Diego rally from a three-run deficit to top visiting Milwaukee.

The victory might prove costly for the Padres, though. Fernando Tatis Jr. exited two innings after he was hit in the left arm by a third-inning pitch. The team announced he sustained a left triceps contusion. Jurickson Profar came out in the seventh inning because of an apparent leg injury.

Brice Turang, Christian Yelich and Willy Adames each had two hits for the Brewers, who have lost two in a row. The Padres have won three straight.


MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cincinnati’s Elly De La Cruz understands how much of a distraction he causes to opposing pitchers whenever he gets on base.

“It seems like they get a little bit nervous right there when I go out there,” De La Cruz, who has a major league-leading 37 steals, said through a translator.

With De La Cruz leading the way, the Reds are stealing bases at a rate unseen over the last three decades. And the Milwaukee Brewers and Washington Nationals are right on their heels.

No team this century has stolen more than 200 bases in a single season (the 2007 New York Mets had exactly 200). The Reds, Brewers and Nationals are all on pace to blow past that mark as they capitalize on rule changes put in place last year to help spur the running game.

Cincinnati has 107 steals through its first 74 games and is on pace for 234. That would represent the highest total for any team since the 1992 Brewers had 256, according to Sportradar.

The NL Central-leading Brewers have 104 steals through 75 games and the Nationals 101 through 74 games. That puts the Brewers on pace for at least 224 and the Nationals on track for 221. No team has finished a season with over 201 steals since the 1993 Montreal Expos had 228.

“As the saying goes, speed never slumps,” Brewers outfielder Blake Perkins said. “It’s always something we’ve got in our back pocket.”

Major League Baseball increased the size of the bases from 15 square inches to 18 square inches last year and ruled pitchers could only disengage from the rubber to call timeout or attempt a pickoff throw twice per plate appearance.

Those rule changes led to 3,503 stolen bases last year – the highest total since 1987 and a 41% increase over 2022 – plus an MLB-record success rate of over 80%. The success rate has dropped to 78.4% this year, but MLB teams had combined for 1,653 steals through Thursday – 70 more than there were at this date last year.

“They got what they wanted,” Brewers first-base coach Quintin Berry said. “They wanted (stealing bases) to be a lot easier. They wanted more action on the basepaths. And with the rules and the bags and everything else, it’s more in line for base stealers. I wonder if they’re going to ever do anything to try to counter that, because it’s getting so high now, but I know fans are loving it, so probably not.”

While the Reds are building off what they did last year, when they had an MLB-leading 190 steals, the Brewers and Nationals got much more aggressive this season. The Brewers ranked 11th in the majors with 129 steals and the Nationals were 12th with 127 in 2023.

No other teams had more than 77 steals heading into Friday’s games.

“Giving up one of your 27 outs on the bases is a no-no, you know, in the era where one pitch can change a game with a three-run homer,” Brewers manager Pat Murphy said. “There’s a lot of risk in it. You’ve got to be willing to do it. Maybe teams like ours are willing to risk. You’ve got to have the personnel to emphasize it and get good at it.”

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said last week he believes the Nationals can keep up this stolen-base pace but noted that they need to do a better job of picking their spots.

“I don’t want to take away our aggressiveness because it’s our identity,” Martinez said. “It’s who we are. We have to do that. We don’t have those guys in the lineup hitting 30, 40 home runs. We have to push the envelope somehow and move the baseball. With that being said, we’ve had a lot of conversations the last few days about when to run, when not to run.”

Reds first base coach Collin Cowgill says stealing bases now isn’t as easy as it was last year because teams are trying harder to contain the running game. Cowgill said Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitchers went to a slide-step whenever the Reds put a runner on base against them.

“That just didn’t happen last year,” Cowgill said. “I think people are definitely doing a better job defending it. Catchers are more aware of it. Their stances are a little taller. They’re ready to throw more. The leg isn’t kicked out as much. I think people have done a much better job this year of controlling it and paying attention to it more so than last year, which makes sense.”

But it hasn’t made much of a difference.

According to Sportradar, all of MLB started tracking the number of times a runner was caught stealing in 1951. Since then, no team has stolen at least 200 bases with a success rate of over 81.3%. This year’s Brewers have been successful on nearly 86% of their attempts.

The Reds have converted 81% of their stolen base tries. The Nationals have been caught stealing an MLB-high 34 times and have been successful on three-quarters of their attempts.

Milwaukee players credit Berry’s scouting reports for helping them make sure they go at the right time.

“We have a lot of guys who are fast and athletic and can run,” said Brewers second baseman Brice Turang, whose 26 steals rank second in the majors. “It’s part of the game. You’ve got to take advantage of it and help your team win.

“Even guys who maybe aren’t as fast are stealing bases too, trying to get good jumps.”

That’s the case with all three teams atop the stolen-base charts. For instance, Washington’s Jesse Winker entered this season with three steals in 610 career games. He’s swiped 11 bags already this year.

Washington has five players with at least 10 steals: Jacob Young (17), Lane Thomas (16), Winker, Trey Lipscomb (10) and CJ Abrams (10). The Brewers have four players with double-digit steals: Turang, Christian Yelich (15), Willy Adames (10) and Perkins (10).

Cincinnati has De La Cruz on pace for 81 steals, which would represent the highest total for any MLB player since 1988. The Reds have two more players with double-digit steals (Spencer Steer with 12, Jake Fraley with 11) and five others with at least six.

These three teams don’t have anyone with more than 12 homers, so they’re finding other ways to generate offense. The Brewers’ 5-4 victory over the Reds on Sunday was a classic example.

In the third inning, De La Cruz drew a two-out walk, stole a base and scored all the way from second on an errant pickoff attempt. Four innings later, Turang reached on an infield hit, stole second, advanced to third on a poor throw and scored on Yelich’s bunt single.

“Just different philosophies for different teams,” Cowgill said. “We’re more get on base and cause some chaos. So are the Brewers. So are the Nationals. I just think (it’s about) the way your team is built. If we had a 50-home run guy in the middle of the order, we might be less likely to steal bases when that guy’s at the plate.”



OMAHA, Neb. — It has been 25 years since a No. 1 seed has won the Men’s College World Series and Tennessee is aiming to end the drought.

The Volunteers will have to get through a fellow SEC opponent to do so and will begin pursuit of the title when they open the best-of-three finals against No. 3 Texas A&M on Saturday.

Both teams went undefeated through bracket play, which left downtown Omaha relatively quiet with no games on Thursday or Friday as several merchants began shipping out their merchandise early. But the intensity will ratchet back up ahead of Game 1 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Charles Schwab Stadium on Saturday night.

The last No. 1 overall national seed to win the title was Miami in 1999. Tennessee is the first No. 1 national seed in 15 years to reach the CWS finals.

The Volunteers (58-12) rallied late to avoid an upset to No. 8 Florida State in their opening game in Omaha. They then took care of North Carolina fairly easily before eliminating the Seminoles in a rematch on Wednesday night.

“This group — we’ve spent a lot of time together,” Tennessee left-hander Kirby Connell said. “We talk about that’s our main goal is to try to win a national championship. We get to have a three-round fight this weekend. And try to be the first team to win two games.”

Tennessee will be well rested, but so will Texas A&M. The Aggies (52-13) similarly avoided an upset bid in their opening game against Florida, surviving the Gators 3-2. They then beat Kentucky before eliminating Florida with a 6-0 shutout on Wednesday night.

Texas A&M, playing in its eighth MCWS, is shooting for its first national title. The Aggies have yet to trail through their first three games in Omaha and are now 8-0 in the NCAA Tournament.

Their last loss? It came against Tennessee, 7-4, in the SEC Tournament on May 23.

“Most teams don’t know when their season is going to end. We’re pretty sure when ours is going to end, one way or the other,” Texas A&M coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “That’s a gift. That’s a blessing we should be thankful for.”

Tennessee will start left-hander Chris Stamos (3-0, 4.26 ERA) on Saturday against Aggies left-hander Ryan Prager (9-1, 2.88).

Both players started the May 23 game and didn’t pitch long. Stamos allowed one run and one hit in 3 1/3 innings and Prager gave up one run and three hits in 2 1/3 innings.

Prager said he and his teammates are ready for what lies ahead.

“I think we’ve truly been able to take care of business and play baseball, but also enjoy it when we’re off the field,” Prager said. “And to be one of the last two here, it’s super exciting. We’re super grateful for it.

“We’ve put ourselves in this position. And just really excited to basically play a three-game series and try to be the first one to win two games.”

But the Volunteers are just as thrilled for the weekend, though they know it will be challenging.

“I would just say they’re competitors,” Tennessee outfielder Kavares Tears said of the Aggies. “I mean, they’re playing in the national championship. And they’re also playing in the SEC. I don’t think they just got there by luck. I think they’re really good competitors.”



CHICAGO (AP) — The Bulls and Thunder finalized a deal sending Josh Giddey to Chicago and Alex Caruso to Oklahoma City on Friday, with the Thunder granting the 21-year-old Giddey’s trade request after he resisted the team’s plans to use him off the bench.

Giddey, a 6-foot-8 point guard from Australia, gets a fresh start after a challenging season in which his numbers dropped and he lost his starting job in the playoffs.

In a statement, Thunder general manager Sam Presti said he told Giddey after the season that the team envisioned using him as as a reserve in 2024-25 “to maximize his many talents and deploy our team more efficiently over 48 minutes.”

“As we laid out to Josh how he could lean into his strengths and ultimately optimize our current roster and talent, it was hard to for him to envision, and conversations turned to him inquiring about potential opportunities elsewhere,” Presti said. “As always was the case, Josh demonstrated the utmost professionalism throughout the discussions.”

The Thunder went 57-25 to earn the top seed in the Western Conference and lost to Dallas in the conference semifinals.

Giddey was frequently booed on the road this season after an anonymous social media user accused him of having an improper relationship with an underage girl, leading to investigations by police in Newport Beach, California, and the NBA.

Newport Beach police completed their investigation in January and said detectives were “unable to corroborate any criminal activity.” The NBA also later dropped its investigation.

Giddey was the No. 6 overall pick in 2021 and he made the All-Rookie second team. He is a member of Australia’s national team that will play at the Paris Olympics this summer. He is an exceptional passer and his size makes him a solid rebounder.

Giddey averaged 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.2 assists in his second season, but those numbers dropped to 12.3 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 2023-24.

Giddey’s play improved the second half of this season after the Thunder traded for Gordon Hayward. In April regular-season games, Giddey averaged 16.3 points, 7.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists while shooting 57.2% from the field.

Giddey’s playing time was reduced in the playoffs. He opened the second-round series against Dallas as a starter before being moved to a reserve role for the first time in his NBA career.

The 30-year-old Caruso, who plays point guard and shooting guard, was undrafted in 2016 and played for the Thunder’s G League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue, in 2016-17. He established himself as a defensive presence in four years with the Los Angeles Lakers and then three years with the Bulls.

He has career averages of 6.8 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists. He averaged a career-high 10.1 points this past season. He was on the all-defense first team in 2023 and the second team in 2024.

“Alex Caruso is a player we have always highly valued and followed,” Presti said. “He is the quintessential Thunder player; he is an exceptional competitor and teammate with a multi-dimensional skillset.”

The Thunder also have Cason Wallace, a second-team All-Rookie selection this past season, at point guard.



DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Wings forward Maddy Siegrist is expected to miss about eight weeks after undergoing surgery on a broken left index finger Thursday.

The Wings announced Friday that Siegrist is likely to be ready when the WNBA returns from its Olympic break.

Siegrist broke her finger in the first quarter of a 90-78 loss to the Minnesota Lynx on Monday. Siegrist had 17 points and seven rebounds in the game.

The former Villanova star is averaging 14.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in her second WNBA season after scoring 3.7 points per game as a rookie.


The WNBA-leading Connecticut Sun lost for only the second time this season on Friday, falling 85-74 to the host Las Vegas Aces, the reigning league champions.

Connecticut (13-2) had its four-game winning streak snapped. The Sun’s only previous loss was an 82-75 decision against the visiting New York Liberty on June 8.

Las Vegas (8-6) earned its third win in four games and second consecutive victory with point guard Chelsea Gray in action.

Gray was out the first 12 games of the season with a foot injury sustained in last year’s WNBA Finals. She finished with four points and an assist in 17 minutes off the bench on Friday, but her plus-minus rating was a game-high plus-19.

A’ja Wilson led the Aces with 26 points and 16 rebounds. She extended her WNBA record to 19 consecutive regular-season games with at least 20 points dating to last season.

Las Vegas’ Kelsey Plum added 18 points and four assists. Plum’s second 3-pointer with 7:57 left in the second quarter, which put the Aces ahead 28-19, was her 1,000th career field goal made.

Connecticut’s DiJonai Carrington had 19 points but shot just 5 of 15 from the field. Brionna Jones finished with 18 points, hitting 8 of 12 from the floor, and a team-high seven rebounds.

Las Vegas outscored Connecticut 25-12 in the second quarter to pull away to a 45-28 halftime lead.

Plum led the Aces in the second quarter with eight points on 3-of-4 shooting from the field, hitting 2 of 3 from 3-point range.

Young had three assists and teammate Kiah Stokes had six rebounds in the second quarter.

Connecticut cut the difference to 57-50 with 2:34 left in the third quarter on a three-point play by Jones, but Las Vegas proceeded to score 10 unanswered points spanning the third and fourth periods to pull away.

Plum’s two free throws with 7:55 remaining put the Aces ahead 67-50.

The Sun did not get closer than 10 points the rest of the game.


NaLyssa Smith scored a team-high 21 points, helping lead the visiting Indiana Fever to a 91-79 win over the Atlanta Dream on Friday.

Smith shot 10-for-17 from the field and added nine rebounds for Indiana (7-10), which won its fourth straight game. Kelsey Mitchell scored 18 points, while Caitlin Clark tallied 16 points and seven assists.

Aliyah Boston finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and Katie Lou Samuelson chipped in 10 points off the bench.

Tina Charles led Atlanta (6-8) with 24 points, followed by Allisha Gray’s 19. Haley Jones had 12 points for the Dream, who have dropped four of five. Aerial Powers scored 10 off the bench.

Facing a 16-point halftime deficit, Atlanta began the third quarter on a 16-9 run, capped with Gray’s three-pointer at the 5:18 mark to cut Indiana’s lead to 66-57.

Clark stopped the run with a layup, and later knocked down a stepback 3-pointer to put the Fever up 71-59 with 3:59 remaining.

Up 13, Boston and Smith scored the final four points of the quarter, giving the Fever a 79-62 lead entering the fourth quarter.

Charles and Gray began the fourth with back-to-back buckets for Atlanta to cut the deficit to 79-66, but Lexie Hull’s triple started a 6-0 Indiana run. Naz Hillmon’s three-point play and Charles’ jumper trimmed Indiana’s lead to 85-71, but Atlanta wasn’t able to cut the lead to single digits.

Atlanta shot just 22-of-65 from the field (33.8 percent) and 4-for-18 on 3-pointers (22.2 percent). The Fever connected on 37 of 65 attempts from the field (56.9 percent), including an 11-for-21 mark from long range (52.4 percent). Clark went 4-for-8 from the arc.

In the first quarter, Powers’ triple cut Atlanta’s deficit to 24-23 before Indiana answered with a 9-0 run, jump-started by back-to-back buckets from Mitchell and Samuelson. The Fever led 35-25 after the first.

From there, the Fever opened with a 7-0 run, taking a 42-25 advantage at the 6:58 mark. Jones’ free throw briefly stopped the run, but Clark followed with a 27-foot 3-pointer, giving the Fever a 45-26 lead.

Another Clark triple put Indiana up 48-29 with 4:42 remaining, before four straight free throws from Gray stamped an 8-0 Dream scoring run.

Indiana led 57-41 at the half, led by Mitchell’s 14. Charles had 15 for Atlanta.



Oklahoma agreed to a six-year contract extension with head coach Brent Venables that includes a significant pay raise, sources told Pete Thamel of ESPN.

The new deal, which keeps the third-year sideline boss under contract through the 2029 season, is worth $46.05 million, according to 247Sports’ Tom Green. It was approved by the school’s board of regents Friday.

The Sooners – who are joining the SEC this season – went 10-3 in 2023, up from a 6-7 campaign during Venables’ first year in charge. Venables also had a successful stint as Clemson’s defensive coordinator from 2012-21.

Oklahoma has lacked postseason success, though, going 0-2 in bowl games with the 53-year-old on the sideline.

Venables has helped Oklahoma post top-10 recruiting classes in 2024 and 2025, according to 247Sports.



The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to contract terms with quarterback Michael Penix Jr., their first-round pick, according to multiple media reports on Friday.

Penix, selected eighth overall out of Washington, is getting a four-year rookie deal valued at $22.88 million, including a $13.46 million signing bonus.

All contracts involving first-round selections include a fifth-year team option.

The Falcons have invested heavily in the quarterback position. Six weeks before the draft, they signed veteran free agent Kirk Cousins to a four-year, $180 million deal that includes $100 million guaranteed.

Cousins, who will turn 36 before the regular-season begins, is looking to come back from a right Achilles tendon tear that ended his 2023 season in October with the Minnesota Vikings.

That commitment made all the more surprising Atlanta’s decision to use a first-round selection on a quarterback. Penix was the fourth signal caller drafted out of a record-tying six first-round QB picks.

Penix, 24, is coming off a spectacular senior season in which he led the Huskies to the national championship game. He threw for a national-high 4,903 yards and had 36 touchdown passes while getting intercepted 11 times.

He wound up as the Heisman Trophy runner-up behind LSU’s Jayden Daniels, and Penix captured the Maxwell Award, which goes to the country’s top college football player. Each of the past two seasons, Penix broke Washington’s single-season passing record.

Penix is expected to formally sign the contract on Friday, according to media reports, and complete the Falcons’ eight-player draft class signings. He has participated in every offseason training session from rookie minicamp to OTAs and the mandatory minicamp.



TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas’ governor signed legislation Friday enabling the state to lure the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and Major League Baseball’s Royals away from neighboring Missouri by helping the teams pay for new stadiums.

Gov. Laura Kelly’s action came three days after the Republican-led Legislature approved the measure with bipartisan supermajorities — an unusually quick turnaround that signals how urgently Kansas officials consider making the offers.

Missouri officials have argued that discussions about building new stadiums are still in the early stages. They said construction of a new one typically takes about three years, and pointed out that the lease on the existing complex that includes the teams’ side-by-side stadiums doesn’t end until January 2031.

The measure Kelly signed takes effect July 1 and will allow bonds to cover 70% of a new stadium’s cost. The state would have 30 years to pay them off with revenues from sports betting, state lottery ticket sales, and new sales and alcohol taxes generated in the area around each proposed stadium.

The Kansas-Missouri border splits the 2.3 million-resident Kansas City area, with about 60% of the people living on the Missouri side.

Kansas officials began working on the legislation after voters on the Missouri side of the metropolitan area refused in April to continue a sales tax used to keep up the existing stadium complex. The Royals outlined a plan in February to build a $2 billion-plus ballpark in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, while the Chiefs were planning an $800 million renovation of their existing home.

Attorneys for the teams told Kansas legislators they needed to make decisions about the future soon for new stadiums to be ready on time — though the Royals had planned to move into a new downtown ballpark at the start of their 2028 season. Some critics suggested the teams are pitting the two states against each other for the biggest government subsidies possible.

“The Chiefs and the Royals are pretty much using us,” said state Rep. Susan Ruiz, a Democrat from the Kansas City, Kansas, area who voted against the bill.

Supporters of bringing the teams to Kansas warned that if neither state acts quickly enough, one or both teams could leave for another community entirely. Several economists who have studied professional sports were skeptical that a move would make financial sense for either a team or a new host city, and both the National Football League and Major League Baseball require a supermajority of owners to approve franchise moves.

The plan had support from throughout Kansas, including about half of the lawmakers from western Kansas, 200 miles (320 kilometers) away from any new stadium.

Kansas lawmakers approved the stadium financing plan during a single-day special session Tuesday. Kelly, a Democrat, called the session for the Legislature to consider tax cuts after she vetoed three previous tax plans and legislators adjourned their regular annual session May 1. On Friday, she also signed a bill that will save income and property taxpayers a total of $1.23 billion over the next three years.

Although the financing law doesn’t specifically name the Chiefs or Royals, it is limited to stadiums for National Football League and Major League Baseball teams “in any state adjacent to Kansas.”

“It’s fairly clearly about how you poach,” Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas said during a news conference after Kansas lawmakers approved the measure. He added that his city would “lay out a good offer” to keep both teams in town and that the teams ”are in an exceptional leverage position.”



Tom Kim of South Korea celebrated his 22nd birthday on Friday by securing the halfway lead at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn.

Kim built upon his first-round 62 with a 5-under 65 on Friday to get to 13-under 127 through two rounds at TPC River Highlands. He is two shots clear of Collin Morikawa, Akshay Bhatia and World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, who had his 28th birthday on Friday.

Kim is bogey-free through 36 holes, but he did not grow his lead larger than two strokes as Morikawa fired a 63 with seven birdies and no miscues. Scheffler ended his round with a birdie to join the group at 11 under, while Bhatia was briefly 12 under for the tournament before a closing bogey.

PGA Championship winner Xander Schauffele is in fifth at 10 under after his second straight 65.

Shane Lowry of Ireland and Robert MacIntyre of Scotland leapt into contention by posting rounds of 62. MacIntyre, the RBC Canadian Open winner earlier this month, had four birdies on each nine. Lowry, who teamed up with Rory McIlroy to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in the spring, had six birdies and an eagle before narrowly missing a birdie at No. 18 at day’s end that would have given him 61.

Lowry is tied at 9 under with Justin Thomas (63) and South Korea’s Sungjae Im (64), while MacIntyre shares 8 under with Tom Hoge (63) and Tony Finau (67).


Abraham Ancer of Mexico shot a bogey-free, 7-under 64 to grab the first-round lead at LIV Golf Nashville on Friday in College Grove, Tenn.

Ancer’s strong round also powered his team, Fireballs GC, to a four-shot advantage to begin the team competition. Teammates Eugenio Chacarra (4-under 67) and Sergio Garcia (3-under 68), both of Spain, combined with Ancer to put the Fireballs at 14 under, four strokes better than Bryson DeChambeau’s Crushers GC.

Ancer made seven birdies at The Grove to establish a one-shot lead over Englishman Tyrrell Hatton.

Ancer started his round on the par-5 18th, where he holed his first birdie. He was at 3 under when he reached the par-5 11th tee and birdied four of the next five holes.

“Put a lot of hard work on my swing, which the stats will say that I’ve been hitting the ball pretty good this year, but there’s some stuff that I feel that I need to work on,” Ancer said. “But it was really nice off the tee. Hit some really good shots in there, and I rolled it nicely.”

The 33-year-old earned his first LIV Golf victory earlier this year in Hong Kong. He knows not to put too much weight into one good round.

“I just try to forget about it,” Ancer said. “I feel like with this sport, even if you had a great round or a terrible round, it doesn’t really help to be thinking about it too much, so I forget about it, go about my routine, same as yesterday, and then do the same thing tomorrow.”

Hatton made eight birdies Friday, the most of anyone on the course, but also carded two bogeys. One of LIV Golf’s newest members is still searching for his debut win; his best finish so far was fourth place in Miami.

Hatton said he made a putting adjustment after his up-and-down week at the U.S. Open, and it paid off.

“They were bad putts, so I just wanted to maybe give myself a little bit more time to square the face up,” Hatton said. “I tried it in the pro-am (Thursday) and putted really nicely. Obviously, rolled with it today, and it was nice to see.”

Third on the individual leaderboard is John Catlin at 5-under 66. He plays on DeChambeau’s Crushers GC and shot just one stroke better than the reigning U.S. Open champion.

DeChambeau is in a tie for fourth at 4 under after making six birdies Friday, including four in a row at Nos. 7-10.

“I’m a bit of a zombie right now,” DeChambeau said after a few days of celebrating his second major title. “Luckily, the crowd has given me a lot of energy. Very gracious to have that happen, and man, they’re just pushing me forward. I can’t thank them enough. It’s so cool to see the support out there.

“This is what LIV Golf is about. I had a vision of this two, three years ago, seeing what the potential could be, and this is just the start. With how much support we have out here, and it’s just the start, that’s a testament to what LIV Golf is and what the Crushers are doing, what our team is doing, and what we’re trying to do for Nashville and places all across the globe.”


Sarah Schmelzel, who has never won an LPGA event nor finished in the top 10 at a major, shares the lead midway through the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in Sammamish, Wash.

The 30-year-old Phoenix native shot a 5-under-par 67 on Friday at Sahalee Country Club to move to 6-under 138, leaving her atop the leaderboard alongside South Korea’s Amy Yang, who carded a second-round 68.

First-round leader Lexi Thompson (72 on Friday), South Korea’s Jin Young Ko (68) and Jaspan’s Hinako Shibuno (70) are tied for third place at 4 under.

Ireland’s Leona Maguire (71), Japan’s Miyu Yamashita (70) and South Korea’s Haeran Ryu (67) share sixth place at 3 under.

World No. 1 Nelly Korda, who was one shot off the lead after the opening round, posted a career-worst 6-over 81 on Friday and missed the cut by one stroke.

It was her third consecutive missed cut at the Women’s PGA Championship and her second consecutive missed cut in a major after she came up short at the U.S. Women’s Open in Lancaster, Pa., earlier this month.

Schmelzel logged six birdies, including two at Nos. 17 and 18, and just one bogey, at the par-3 13th hole, on Friday.

“Just staying really patient out there,” Schmelzel said. “Staying aggressive off the tees is kind of our game plan this week. I drove it really well, so fortunately I was able to take advantage of having some shorter irons in today.

“Saw a few putts go in early, which always helps build the confidence for the rest of the day, and fortunately just kept the momentum all day.”

Yang closed her bogey-free round with a birdie at the par-5 18th hole.

“My back had been bothering me last few days, but I was still striking the ball really well like (Thursday), and so I thought it would be fine,” Yang said. “I woke up (Friday) and starting few holes was feeling a little pain on my lower back, but I fought through really well and that actually gave me more like focus out there.”

Korda’s horrendous round began with four consecutive bogeys, and she was 6 over on the day at the turn. She added two more bogeys before a double-bogey on the par-4 15th hole. Korda got her lone birdie of the day at No. 18, but it wasn’t enough to make the cut.

“It’s just golf recently for me,” she said. “No words for how I’m playing right now. I’m just going to go home and try to reset.”

Korda tied the all-time LPGA record this spring when she won five consecutive starts.

“A lot went my way at the beginning part of the year, and (I’m) just giving it back,” she said.



The U.S. men’s national team is in no position to take an opponent lightly as it faces Bolivia in its first Group C match of Copa America 2024 on Sunday in Arlington, Texas.

With the Americans ranked No. 11 in the latest FIFA world rankings and Bolivia 84th, the U.S. has an opportunity to take the first step toward advancement to the knockout round.

Victories over Bolivia and the next opponent, Panama (43rd), would ensure that happens regardless of the final group match vs. Uruguay (14th).

The U.S. has bigger ambitions.

“For me it’s getting past the quarterfinal,” midfielder Tyler Adams said. “We need to — in a pressure situation — win in a knockout. That’s going to measure a lot of our success.”

An unsteady run-up to the tournament had skeptics wondering if Gregg Berhalter is the right coach to lead the Americans as they look ahead to hosting the 2026 World Cup.

A 5-1 thrashing by Colombia increased the angst, but a 1-1 draw with Brazil, one of the Copa favorites, eased some of the pressure.

This year, Copa America features 10 South American clubs plus six CONCACAF (North and Central America and the Caribbean) invitees.

“When you talk about some of the most watched games, I think aside from the World Cup, you look at the Copa America, right?” U.S. defender Mark McKenzie said.

“You talk about countries that have won multiple World Cups, in Uruguay and Argentina and Brazil. You have the opportunity now to step into this tournament and go head-to-head with them. Ultimately, it’s usually a South American tournament and now we have the opportunity to play against them.”

Bolivia is in transition, with coach Antonio Carlos Zago, a Copa America winner as a player for Brazil in 1999, taking over last fall.

“The most important thing is for us to compete,” he said. “We have to try to play on an equal footing with the big teams in terms of intensity and physicality.”

It won’t be easy. Bolivia has won only one of its past 30 Copa America matches.



Grant Fisher won the first event final at the U.S. Olympic track & field trials in Eugene, Ore., on Friday, taking the men’s 10,000 meters to book a trip to Paris in July.

The American-record holder in the 10,000, the 27-year-old Fisher crossed the finish line in 27 minutes, 49.47 seconds on Friday to earn a second consecutive trip to the Olympics. He finished fifth in the 10,000 in Tokyo in 2021.

Fisher, whose American record is more than a minute better than his time Friday, was followed by Woody Kinkaid and Nico Young in the final.

All three will go to Paris.

Other big names also competed on the opening day of the trials, including superstar sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson.

The 24-year-old Texas native, who won the 100 meters at the trials in 2021 but was disqualified from competing at the Olympics after testing positive cannabis, posted the fastest time in the event in the first round of qualifying Friday with a 10.88 run — despite running with one shoelace untied.

The time was also only .02 seconds off her finals-winning pace at the trials three years ago, and that despite a bit of a wobbly start out of the block.

“I definitely didn’t have the start I’ve been training to have in this moment,” she told NBC after the race. “But I’m still not panicking. I’m staying patient and knowing no matter what’s going on, to continue to run my race.

“I just need to put it all together.”

She advances to Saturday’s semifinals. The women’s 100 final will be the final event of the day Saturday.

Reigning women’s 800 Olympic champion Athing Mu did not dominate like Richardson but still advanced to the semifinals with a 15th-place showing in Round 1. Mu also currently holds the American record in the event.

Michaela Rose, 2023 NCAA champion in the 800 while at LSU, posted the top qualifying time at 1:59.57.

Shot putter Ryan Crouser, one of the most decorated competitors in action Friday, did not disappoint.

The reigning world-record and Olympic-record holder and two-time defending Olympic champion posted the third-place throw in the first round of qualifying, sending the shot 21.44 meters in his first and only throw for the night.

The 31-year-old is dealing with a sore elbow and a pectoral muscle tear, so the less throwing he had to do before Saturday’s final the better.

“It’s been a tough road, for sure,” Crouser told NBC, “but I’m proud of how I’ve overcome what has been a really difficult spring.”



One of the most decorated American swimmers is finally on his way to Paris to compete for individual Olympic gold.

Seven-time Olympic gold medalist Caeleb Dressel won the men’s 50-meter freestyle final Friday at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials in Indianapolis, booking a spot in an individual event at the Paris Games that begin in July.

Dressel, who won five gold medals in Tokyo in 2021, took a break from swimming in 2022. He failed to qualify for the World Championships in 2023 and finished third in the men’s 100 free final on Wednesday, qualifying only for the relay team. But touching the wall in 21.41 on Friday — .37 seconds off his American-record time — Dressel showed he is indeed back to form.

“Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s tough. That was a tough one,” Dressel said of the final after the race. “I was not super confident until I got up on that block. There’s only so much you can do in the 50. It’s head down and go fast.”

Chris Guiliano finished second in the race at 21.69 to book his third individual spot in Paris. He won the men’s 100 free and finished second in the 200 free earlier in the trials.

Along with winning gold in the 50 and 100 freestyle events at Tokyo, the 27-year-old Dressel won gold in the 100 butterfly. He won his semifinal in that event on Friday, as well, and will race for another spot in Paris in the final on Saturday.

One racer who already has multiple entries booked in Paris is Regan Smith. Having already won the women’s 100 backstroke (in world-record time) and the women’s 200 butterfly, Smith on Friday won the 200 backstroke to qualify for a third individual event in Paris.

She finished in 2:05.16 — swimming under a world-record pace halfway through the race. Phoebe Bacon finished second at 2:06.27 to take the other spot in Paris.

Carson Foster completed the individual medley double in Indianapolis, winning the men’s 200 IM final with a time of 1:55.65. On Sunday, Foster won the 400 IM final. Shaine Casas was second in the 200 on Friday, finishing 0.18 seconds behind Foster.

Three finals will take place Saturday:

–Men’s 100 butterfly
–Women’s 200 IM
–Men’s 800 freestyle

The trials end Sunday.




INDIANAPOLIS – With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, Joey Bart smacked a three-run double to highlight a five-run burst, and Nick Dombkowski and Ryder Ryan combined for four shutout innings in relief to carry the Indianapolis Indians to a 5-2 win over the Iowa Cubs on Friday night at Victory Field.

Trailing 2-0 at the stretch, Indianapolis (32-39) erupted for five runs – four scoring with two outs – to rally for its third win of the series. Following a one-out double by Dylan Shockley that scored Malcom Nuñez from first base, Gilberto Celestino and Alika Williams sandwiched walks around a fielder’s choice by Matt Fraizer. Williams’ free pass loaded the bases for Bart, and the former second overall pick in the 2018 First-Year Player Draft delivered in his Indians debut, smoking a 1-1 pitch by Sam McWilliams high off the padded wall in the left-field corner. Joshua Palacios then flared a single into left field to bring home Bart.

The I-Cubs (32-41) scored twice in the third inning to grab the lead. Chase Strumpf singled, Hayden Cantrelle was hit by pitch and both scored after a sacrifice bunt on a single by Owen Caissie.

Dombkowski (W, 2-2) pitched around two walks with two strikeouts in 2.2 scoreless innings of relief of Indians starter Luis Cessa, who yielded two earned runs on two hits and a walk with five punchouts in 5.0 innings pitched. Ryder Ryan (S, 1) recorded the final out in the eighth and all three outs in the ninth.

Indy relievers have combined for a 0.73 ERA (3er/37.0ip) in the last 10 games dating back to June 11, best in the International League.

Brad Wieck (L, 3-2) recorded just one out and allowed three earned runs in the seventh.

The announced attendance of 13,321 set a new season high for the Indians – home or away.

The Indians and I-Cubs continue the series at Victory Field on Saturday at 7:05 PM ET. RHP Riley Thompson (2-1, 6.31) is Iowa’s probable starting pitcher while Indianapolis has yet to name its starter.



ATLANTA – The Indiana Fever (7-10) tipped off its five-game road trip on Friday with a 91-79 victory against the Atlanta Dream at State Farm Arena. Indiana’s win extended its victory streak to four, which is the first time since August 2015 the Fever has won four games in a row. Indiana earned its second win against the Dream this season and tied a season-high in points scored. Indiana shot a season-best 56.9 percent from the floor and made a season-high 37 field goals.

Five Fever players scored in double figures against Atlanta, led by NaLyssa Smith with 21 points, nine rebounds – her third game in a row posting seven or more rebounds – two assists and two blocked shots. Smith moved past Marissa Coleman for 15th on the Fever all-time scoring list with 1,112 career points. Fever guard Kelsey Mitchell recorded 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting and 3-of-4 three-point shooting, four rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Fever rookie guard Caitlin Clark added 16 points, seven assists, four rebounds and one block in the win. Clark’s seven assists Friday, four of which came from the first quarter, helped her become the fastest rookie in WNBA history to record 260+ points and 100+ assists in 17 games played. Fever center Aliyah Boston tallied her fourth double-double over the last five games with 10 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Fever forward Katie Lou Samuelson led the Fever reserves with 10 points, three rebounds and three assists.

The wire-to-wire win for Indiana was highlighted by recording a season-high 24 assists and also outscoring Atlanta 48-26 in points in the paint.

For Atlanta (6-8), four Dream players scored in double figures. Dream center Tina Charles posted a season-high 24 points in the loss, as well as seven rebounds and two assists. Dream guard Allisha Gray followed with 19 points, four rebounds and three assists. Additionally, guards Haley Jones and Aerial Powers recorded 12 and 10 points, respectively. Dream Forward Naz Hillmon came off the bench and pulled down nine rebounds along with seven points.

The Fever stay on the road to take on the Chicago Sky on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET. Sunday’s game will be broadcast on ESPN.

MUNCIE, Ind. – The runner-up in voting for the Mid-American Conference Freshman of the Year last season, Avery Mahoney has signed with Ball State as a transfer for the 2024-25 men’s golf season.

From Burlington, Ontario, Mahoney becomes the second Canadian on the Ball State roster, joining Braxton Kuntz who finished a strong junior season after a transfer from Nicholls State. Mahoney competed in every event last season for Eastern Michigan, completing 33 rounds for a 74.7 average. He was the Eagles’ No. 3 golfer last season heading into the MAC Championships that were won by Ball State

Highlights for Mahoney last season included a 10th-place finish at the Davidson River Run Collegiate (65-72-73—210) in which he shot his lowest round of the year. He finished 19th at the Badger Invitational (72-74-69—215) in which he actually tied with Kuntz, four strokes behind Ball State leader Kash Bellar. He recorded three top-20 finishes last year including an 18th-place standing at Penn State’s Rutherford Intercollegiate (75-75-71—221).

“We welcome Avery and his family to our Ball State golf family,” said Ball State coach Mike Fleck who returns four of his five starters next year, from a MAC Championship squad that finished 10th at the NCAA’s Chapel Regional. “Having been able to watch Avery compete several times this past year, he is a very skilled and talented player. I also know the type of young men Coach [Bruce] Cunningham recruited over the years and Avery will be a team-first guy who will work extremely hard and be an excellent culture guy while representing Ball State. We are really excited to bring Avery on board, and with a nucleus of our top guys returning, our goals will be lofty going into the 2024-25 year.”

Prior to signing at EMU, Mahoney carded a 296 (76-70-74-74) for a 27th-place finish at the Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) Men’s Championship. He also competed in the 2022 RCGA Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship (77-72–149) and was 25th at the RCGA Canadian Junior Championship (74-70-72-69—285).

Mahoney took home first place at the 2021 Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) Eastern Canadian Junior Championship (78-72-71—221).

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State President Dr. Mike Godard announced the hiring of Tracy Archuleta as the Sycamores’ 30th head baseball coach in program history on Friday afternoon.

Archuleta joins the Sycamores following an 18-year tenure as the head coach at the University of Southern Indiana and a 23-year overall career as a head coach at both the NCAA Division I and Division II levels.

“Coach Archuleta is a championship-caliber coach and a seasoned professional with a proven track record of winning. He is the right fit for Indiana State University and to lead our baseball team, which has shown for years we can compete with the best in Division I athletics. With the recent hiring of a new Director of Athletics, Nathan Christensen, and now Coach Archuleta, I look forward to the future of Sycamore Athletics,” said Dr. Mike Godard, President of Indiana State University.

“Coach Archuleta’s successful career as a head coach and proven track record of winning games in the NCAA Tournament and National Championships made us stand up and take notice throughout the process,” incoming Director of Athletics Nathan Christensen said. “His deep Indiana and Midwest roots were important to continuing to build our program. Both Coach Archuleta and I feel reaching the College World Series is a reality under Tracy’s leadership, and we are fired up for him to start here in Terre Haute!”

“I’m excited to welcome Coach Archuleta and his family to Indiana State University and look forward to working with him,” Interim Athletic Director Angie Lansing said. “He is respected in the baseball community, and I believe he will provide a high-level experience for the student-athletes within our program.”

Archuleta led the Screaming Eagles for 18 years, including the programs transition to NCAA Division I and to two NCAA Division II national championships since taking the helm in 2007. He also has been recognized as the Division II ABCA National Coach of the Year twice (2010, 2014); the ABCA Midwest Region Coach of the Year five times (2007, 2010, 2014, 2016, 2018) and the GLVC Coach of the Year twice (2011, 2014). He was the winningest coach in the history of the program with 571 victories over his tenure.

“It is an honor to become the next head baseball coach for the Indiana State Sycamores,” Archuleta said. “The rich history of Indiana State is something I am really looking forward to being a part of and I look forward to continuing the momentum that has been built at this great institution. I want to thank President Godard, Nathan Christensen, and Angie Lansing for giving me this opportunity and I’m excited about their vision for ISU. I also want to thank the University of Southern Indiana and the Evansville community for 18 great years. I feel I have left USI Baseball in a great place and wish them the best moving forward.”

The Eagles progressed during their second season in the OVC and Division I action in 2024, improving by nine wins to 27-32 overall and finishing over .500 in the conference with a 14-13 mark. USI was fourth during the OVC regular season and finished third in the OVC Baseball Championship that included a win over top-seeded University of Arkansas at Little Rock. USI also grew statistically during the 2024 run raising its team batting average 10 points and lowered its team ERA by nearly two runs.

In Archuleta’s 18 seasons, USI won two NCAA II national championships and five NCAA II Midwest Regional titles; won three GLVC West crowns and three GLVC East banners; one GLVC Tournament championship; and appeared in six NCAA II Regionals. Archuleta’s Eagles also have featured 12 All-Americans, eighth Academic All-American, 34 All-Region performers, and 54 All-GLVC players. Fourteen players were drafted into the MLB ranks with USI alum Darin Mastroianni playing six years with both Toronto and Minnesota (2011-2016).

Archuleta came to USI after five seasons at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside that featured a pair of NCAA Division II Tournament appearances and a pair of 40-win seasons. UW-Parkside also advanced to the NCAA II North Central Regional title game in 2005 and was 148-124 (.544) during Archuleta’s tenure.

After setting the foundation during his first two years, Archuleta directed the UW-Parkside Rangers into the national spotlight with a 41-18 season in 2004, finishing on top of the GLVC standings and earning the school’s first-ever NCAA II Tournament bid. In his tenure at UW-Parkside, Archuleta coached the Rangers first All-American, Regional Player of the Year, GLVC Player of the Year, and he had two players sign professional contracts and 11 players earn All-Region honors. He was tabbed GLVC Coach of the Year in 2004.

Archuleta served as an assistant coach for five seasons at Wayne State College (Nebraska) and Central Missouri State University at the NCAA II level before taking the top spot at UW-Parkside.

At Wayne State, he was the infield coach, hitting coach, and recruiting coordinator on the team that captured its first NSIC championship and NCAA II regional birth in the 2001 season. Archuleta helped guide the team’s batting average to 25th in the country (2000) and, in 2001, the squad was third in the country in fielding percentage (.969). In 2001, Wayne State finished 26th in the country with a record of 35-10.

During his tenure at CMSU, the Mules won the regular season conference championship with a record of 20-1 and were ranked as high as fifth in the nation. The team picked up an NCAA tournament bid and finished 16th in the country with a 43-10 mark. Archuleta was CMSU’s outfield coach and recruiting coordinator. He also assisted the hitters.

The native of Iliff, Colorado, earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Metropolitan State College of Denver and has a master’s degree in education from Wayne State College. He has three children, Mikaela, Alex, and Sam.

Southern Indiana then hosts a rematch of last season’s OVC quarterfinal match against the University of Arkansas at Little Rock on October 17. USI concludes the regular season on the road at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (October 20) before a home finale against Western Illinois University (October 27).

The OVC Championship Tournament runs from October 31 through November 10.

“The plan is to play a difficult non-conference schedule in preparation for an extremely competitive OVC schedule,” Schoenstein added. “In our second OVC season in 2023, we took a great step forward by finishing tied for third in the standings and hosting a quarterfinal match in the conference tournament. The team’s focus is to continue to improve each season and challenge for the OVC title.”

USI Women’s Soccer enters year three of its transition period to NCAA Division I and in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Screaming Eagles went 4-8-7 overall with a 3-2-4 conference record last season.

Hall of Fame Birthdays for June 22

  • June 22, 1917 – Dallas, Texas – TCU’s legendary quarterback from 1936 to 1938, Davey O’Brien arrived into the world. Texas Christian was blessed that O’Brien got to watch the great Sammy Baugh for a season or two as the starter before he took the reins himself and the Horned Frog signal caller. Learn as an understudy he did too! The National Football Foundation tells us that like Baugh, O’Brien was destined to drive enemy defenses daffy with his incredible passing feats. Dutch Meyer, who coached both quarterbacks at TCU, compared his prized pupils, saying: “Baugh was a better all-around player than O’Brien, and a better passer, but as a field general Davey has never been equaled. He was the finest play selector I’ve ever seen.” In 1938, O’Brien led TCU to an undefeated season and a national championship. He won the Heisman and Maxwell Awards and threw 19 touchdown passes. Davey O’Brien’s collegiate football records are celebrated in the College Football Hall of Fame after his induction in 1955. After graduation O’Brien played two years with the Philadelphia Eagles, 1939-40, and was All-Pro and Rookie of the Year, 1939. He then surprisingly quit football and spent 10 years as a special agent for the FBI before going into the business world.
  • June 22, 1962 – Everett, Washington – Gordon Hudson the Brigham Young University tight end from 1980 to 1983 was born. The FootballFoundation.org let’s us in on that the two-time unanimous All-American player holds the NCAA records for most passes caught per game by a tight end with 5.4, most career yards per game by a tight end with a whopping 75.3 and the most yards in a game by a tight end with a staggering 259 yards against Utah. As a senior, he teamed with Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young to haul in an NCAA record 44 catches and six touchdowns in an injury-shortened season. When he completed his college career he held the NCAA record for the most receiving yards by a tight end with 2484 yards. The National Football Foundation selected Gordon Hudson for entrance into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2009. After school was completed Gordon played two seasons in the USFL with the Los Angeles Express franchise and one season in the NFL for the Seattle Seahawks. 
  • June 22, 1971 – Kurt Warner Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrined QB that played for the Rams, Giants and Cardinals. For more on Kurt please see our Inspiration Sensation article by clicking Kurt Warner Inspiration.
  • June 22, 1978 – Champ Bailey Pro Football Hall of Fame Cornerback that played for the Washington Redskins and the Denver Broncos during his 15 year career in the NFL. Champ was selected to a whopping 12 Pro Bowls (the most of any defensive back in NFL history), and was 1st Team All-Pro 3 times. Bailey prepared for the NFL by playing for the Georgia Bulldogs in college. As a pro he registered 52 interceptions in 215 games played, truly a shut down, ball hawking corner.
