shootarounds have added importance with dwindling practice time


phoenix – lately, the pressure has been turned up on nuggets’ shootarounds. in some respects, they’ve taken on a practice feel simply because there’s been no formal practicing of late.for instance, the nuggets did not have one regular practice last week. and the nuggets had three days in which they could have been held. but the packed nature of the schedule of late, coupled with injuries have forced nuggets coach michael malone to get creative in improving the team while making sure he has as close to a healthy roster as he can.“the london trip was a great trip, but because you only play one game in a week, there’s going to be blowback from that,” malone said. “so we come back from that trip and its six games in nine nights. i just have to be smart. we’re trying to rest our guys, we’ve got

brighton wrestling could bring back the bulldogs' glory days under alum tom wagn


as far as tradition goes, not many high school wrestling programs have more of it than brighton. the bulldogs claim seven team state titles — tied for ninth best in state history — with each championship coming in a span of 11 years starting in 1984.but the last of those titles e in 1994, when tom wagner was a senior at brighton. wagner, now in his 10th season as the bulldogs’ coach, finished his prep career with three team titles and two individual titles. few programs in the history of chsaa have been as dominant as the bulldogs during that time. and few prep wrestlers ever get to experience winning one individual state title, much less two.so when wagner accepted the job in the fall of 2006, he made it his mission to bring back the magic, and since then the bulldogs earned one top-five

san diego — patrick rodgers had a clean scorecard to match a picture-perfect urday at torrey pines and s a 5-under 67 to share the lead with defending champion brandt snedeker in the farmers insurance open.snedeker, trying to become only the fourth player to win back-to-back at torrey pines, didn't get much out of his round of 70. his three birdies were all inside 6 feet, and the longest putt he made was for par.even so, being tied for the lead is a better spot than his last two victories. he rallied from seven s s behind in 2012 and won in a playoff against kyle stanley, who made triple bogey on the final hole. last year, he made the cut on the number and was six s s behind going into the final round.snedeker and rodgers were at 9-under 207, and 15 players were within three s s of the lea






leeco x10 gets benchmarked, will have dual eras on the front and the back


back in november china's tenaa certified the upcoming leeco le x850 for sale in the country, though it still hasn't launched. and now it looks like the same handset (or a slightly different version of it) was put through the paces of gfxbench, which as usual has resulted in a pretty complete listing of its specs on the benchmark's website.the phone's model number is said to be x85x, and the second "x" could obviously stand for "0". then again, gfxbench also calls it x10 as if that may be its name, so it's unclear what's going on here. finally note that there are some small differences between the specs outed by tenaa for the x850 and what gfxbench lists for the x10/x85x.the chinese regulatory authority spoke of a device with a 5.7-inch qhd screen, snapdragon 821 chipset, 4gb of ram, 64gb o

twins, may both hope his relief days behind him


in retrospect, trevor may made a critical mistake a couple of years ago, one his career hasn’t recovered from yet:he pitched too well.“we were in a pennant race, and i was excited to do whatever we needed to try to win it,” may said of his midseason switch to the twins bullpen in 2015. “i still feel that way. but it might not have been the best thing for me in the big picture.”that’s because, as brilliant as the righthander pitched in relief that year — a 3.15 era in 34 mostly high-pressure innings, plus 39 strikeouts and only eight walks — may now suspects that changing roles might have been detrimental to his health. not to mention his career.may approaches spring training, his fifth big-league p, with roughly the same uncertainty as a year ago. healthy again after an injury-filled 2016,
