Bohls: OK, class, take out your No. 2’s — it’s time to take your 2017-18 Texas 101 final

Summer beckons, but before we can get to the sandy beaches and salty margaritas, we obviously have to finish our final exams first. And we will not be grading on the curve here. So have at it with your No. 2 pencil. Texas’ Mo Bamba looks up at coach Shaka Smart before going into the game against Iowa State at the Frank Erwin center Jan. 22, 2018. Bamba will likely...


Danica Patrick eases into final race of her career

Danica Patrick eases into final race of her career

Danica Patrick strolled into Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a sunburn, a surprise gift from an afternoon spent in Green Bay, reading books while lying in the grass with boyfriend Aaron Rodgers.  As retirement comes racing toward her, she's never been more at ease — except for one thing.  Patrick was looking relaxed at the final media day of her racing career, wearing white cutoff...
Leggett: Post-Harvey life along Rockport’s coast is still complicated

Leggett: Post-Harvey life along Rockport’s coast is still complicated

From a distance, the splashing and frothing in the shallow water were no more than indistinct hints that something might be going on against the sandy shoreline. But as Chuck Naiser poked the bottom with his long poling stick and leaned right to push the boat farther left, a fish’s back — meaty and thick, dorsal fin and scales reflecting the morning sunlight — broke the surface and...
Despite possible relocation, Crew SC players keep focus on ‘our season’

Despite possible relocation, Crew SC players keep focus on ‘our season’

The second half is underway at MAPFRE Stadium as darkness sets in, and Columbus Crew SC is leading the Chicago Fire 1-0. The announced attendance for the May 12 match, 11,108, is just above the season average. A mix of somber and defiant, the fans in attendance can’t help but be reminded that this could be the Crew’s last season in Ohio. A possible move to Austin looms large. “It&rsquo...

Quest for squirrels evokes memories of hunting roots

It’s been nearly 30 years since I’ve been spring squirrel hunting in East Texas. It hasn’t changed. The month is May. The wind is howling, whipping the upper branches of the canopy like sheets in a gale. The squirrels are quiet because of that. The temperature is 77 degrees at daylight and going up. I park outside a set of woods on Jack Brittingham’s Briar Lakes Ranch, where...

Oaks, Gallagher lift Omaha over Round Rock Express

Cam Gallagher had three hits and scored two runs while Trevor Oaks allowed just six hits over seven innings as the Omaha Storm Chasers defeated the Round Rock Express 11-1 in Papillion, Neb., on Friday.

Perez plays ball off Choo’s nose to help Royals top Texas

Perez plays ball off Choo’s nose to help Royals top Texas

Danny Duffy didn’t need much help Thursday night. Still, he and catcher Salvador Perez got a nifty assist from Shin-Soo Choo’s face. Duffy took a shutout into the eighth inning after Perez threw out a base runner on a ball that hit Choo in the nose, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 8-2 for their season-best third straight victory. Perez had four RBIs on a pair of two-run...

Temple College earns Junior College World Series bid out of left field

The Temple College baseball season was in the books. Coach and former major league pitcher Craig McMurtry even had exit interviews planned with his players. But, as they say in baseball, it ain’t over till it’s over. Out of left field, McMurtry received a call: Tell your players to pack their bats. This third-place team from Texas had earned an improbable spot in the Junior College World...
One-time smoker now stands on triathlon podiums: ‘I have a purpose now’

One-time smoker now stands on triathlon podiums: ‘I have a purpose now’

Six years ago, Christopher Stewart Mickler-Lemelle was a pack-and-a-half a day smoker who looked at athletes from afar. The 43-year-old Austin hairstylist had dabbled in sports as a youngster but took up smoking as a teen and never gave athletics a second thought. All that changed in 2012 when he went out for a short jog by Lady Bird Lake on Memorial Day and noticed the Life Time Tri CapTex triathlon...
Elgin softball team falls one game short of state tournament

Elgin softball team falls one game short of state tournament

Before his team began its Region III-5A championship series with Elgin, Barbers Hill coach Aaron Fuller made a quick phone call to Elgin skipper Amanda Wolf-Schramm, one of his closest coaching comrades. The two had talked for years about possibly meeting up with a berth in the state tournament at stake some day, and Fuller knew that the result would prove bittersweet for either coach. “Obviously...

The making of Sean Manaea: How A's ace has found the confidence to match his talent

From brushing off an early-inning home run to no-hitting the hottest lineup on earth, Sean Manaea carries himself with quiet confidence. But that wasn't always the case. In the small town of Wanatah, Ind., (population 1,017), the A's left-hander stood out as the best young pitching prospect in the middle of hoops country — but how much stock was he supposed to put into that? He had hardly even...
At 500-1 odds, how the Vegas Golden Knights became a success

At 500-1 odds, how the Vegas Golden Knights became a success

Eleven months after piecing together a hockey team, the Vegas Golden Knights have become one of the most improbable underdog stories in pro sports history. Never has an American expansion franchise excelled like the Knights, who blistered their way through their debut season to inexplicably reach the Stanley Cup Final. No team in modern NHL, MLB, NBA or NFL history managed a winning record in their...
NFL did fans and players a favor with anthem rule

NFL did fans and players a favor with anthem rule

Most NFL players won't realize it, but the owners did them a favor. It gets back to a simple rule of persuasion. Don't start your argument by insulting half your audience. That's what the league's social justice warriors did when they started taking knees during the national anthem. It was a classic case of self-sabotage. The point they were trying to make was immediately overshadowed by their method...
Savor Nadal's bid for 11th French title

Savor Nadal's bid for 11th French title

Forget about trying to decipher whether a recent loss on red clay is better or worse for Rafael Nadal's mind-set as the French Open arrives.  Did it alleviate a bit of pressure? Or did it make him feel more vulnerable? Did it make him aware things won't necessarily come as easily as they have been? Or did it let other players know the "King of Clay" actually can falter?  The truth...

Bears see more comfortable Trubisky emerging as leader

As he prepares for his second season, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky can sense the difference and so can his teammates.  It's the faith in him and the leadership he's showing.  "I love the position I'm in and the leadership role," Trubisky said Wednesday.  "I have to know the guys are looking at me. Come out every day and bring the energy and make sure I'm...
For the Capitals, it was worth the wait

For the Capitals, it was worth the wait

Take the available information on the Washington Capitals - the way they perform when they lead in a playoff series, how they execute in seventh and deciding games, all the synonyms for "choking" that exist - and toss it in the trash. Crumple it up. Send it to the shredder. It's no longer relevant. Washington's sporting reality changed Wednesday night. All the ghosts that used to hide in...
NFL anthem policy bound to please only the NFL

NFL anthem policy bound to please only the NFL

The NFL tried to straighten up its messy bed. Now it will see how sleeping in it goes. After nearly two years of hand-wringing, the league’s 32 owners decided on Wednesday to overhaul NFL policy on protocol for the national anthem. At their two-day meeting in Atlanta, the owners said the league would allow players to stay in the locker room during the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner...
The best coach in the Bay Area breaks down the Warriors’ breakdown

The best coach in the Bay Area breaks down the Warriors’ breakdown

It was no great mystery why the Golden State Warriors were imploding. The evidence was all over the large-screen television in front of Sue Phillips. A team celebrated for its relentless ball movement had resorted to a sad, steady diet of one-on-one possessions, and Phillips commiserated with coach Steve Kerr from afar. “See how he’s telling them to move?” said Phillips, who was...

Bohls: Rockets’ Paul, Gordon shimmy past Warriors

This wasn’t the Western Conference finals anyone expected. The last two games of this series pitting the two most prolific offenses in the NBA have been decided by, uh, defense. That’s right. The winning team hasn’t even eclipsed 100 points. Houston has the probable MVP but was making do with a strong supporting cast. James Harden suddenly can’t hit a three to save his life...

Heineman leads Round Rock over Iowa 5-4

Scott Heineman had three hits and scored two runs as the Round Rock Express topped the Iowa Cubs 5-4 for a series split on Thursday at Dell Diamond in Round Rock. R.J.

Round Rock started the scoring in the second inning when former Texas Longhorn Cameron Rupp hit an RBI single...
Texas Stars fall in overtime, keep Western Conference finals lead

Texas Stars fall in overtime, keep Western Conference finals lead

The Texas Stars played a third straight overtime game but fell short this time as the Rockford IceHogs won 3-2 in Rockford, Ill. on Thursday.

Texas now leads 3-1 with one more game to be played in Rockford before the series shifts back to the H-E-B Center at Cedar...
By returning to Texas, Kerwin Roach continues his pursuit of victories, college degree

By returning to Texas, Kerwin Roach continues his pursuit of victories, college degree

Shaka Smart fully recognizes that every player he recruits to Texas wants to play in the NBA. Tomorrow, preferably. The Longhorns men’s basketball coach believes it’s his job to gather the data and present it in objective fashion. With Mo Bamba, the decision was easy. Anyone projected as a top-five lottery pick has to leave school. But what about players like...

How many Texas and Big 12 teams will earn NCAA bids Monday?

Texas A&M tiptoed into the SEC Baseball Tournament as a borderline NCAA postseason team, but the Aggies are leaving little doubt they belong. An impressive finishing kick this week — including wins over No. 25 Vanderbilt and No. 7 Georgia — lifts A&M onto the right side of the bubble, according to projections, before Selection Monday. The Aggies (38-19) played 24th-ranked Auburn (39-19)...
More substance than style, Georgetown baseball enjoying playoff run

More substance than style, Georgetown baseball enjoying playoff run

There’s nothing flashy about the Georgetown baseball team. And that’s just fine with the Eagles, who began a Class 5A, Region III semifinal series with Kingwood Park on Thursday night. The Eagles (31-9-1) say their success is a result of hard work, attention to detail and working as a team rather than having superstar players. “We’re not more talented than other teams; we just...
Faces off the Field: Cash Rugely, senior infielder, Cedar Ridge

Faces off the Field: Cash Rugely, senior infielder, Cedar Ridge

Tell me something you remember about the first time you played competitive baseball. When I was 7 years old, my team, the Sam Bass Diablos, played against the Georgetown Toros. They were our rivals because we played them so much, and we had never beaten them. With two on and two outs in the third inning, a teammate’s mom said she’d give me $100 if I hit a home run. On the second pitch...

‘Phenoms’ aims to give U.S. emotional bond to World Cup stars

As the clock ticked away on the U.S. men’s national team’s 2018 World Cup hopes, reality started to sink in for many of the nation’s soccer fans.

Football country goes crazy for a soccer team

Football country goes crazy for a soccer team

Jay Riddle moved to this city of transplants 14 years ago, and for much of that time, his life revolved around his job in the aerospace industry. His main sports fix was watching Arsenal matches on television each weekend. He knew little of Major League Soccer. But when Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, was awarded an expansion franchise in the league in 2014 and announced plans to call...
Phelps says mental health is new passion

Phelps says mental health is new passion

Michael Phelps was hanging at the pool on Tuesday.  No, he's not planning another comeback.  He's got a bigger goal to tackle.  Mental health.  After revealing the depths of his depression — and even thoughts of suicide after his second drunken-driving arrest — Phelps is hoping to make a difference for those who are dealing with similar issues.  The 23-time Olympic...
Is college tennis in danger?

Is college tennis in danger?

On a chilly day at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York this month, Jackie Tang, a sophomore at Columbia University, was embroiled in a tight match in the NCAA men’s tennis tournament. Tang needed help against his University of Virginia opponent, so he did something professional tennis players normally cannot. Unhappy with what he thought was lackluster support, Tang, who...
The football hit felt all over Japan

The football hit felt all over Japan

The violent hit to the defenseless quarterback came from behind, after the first play of a game between two storied college football teams. Ordinarily, the illegal tackle would have simply drawn a severe penalty. But it happened in Japan, where the play — and what led to it — has touched off nationwide examination of deep-rooted cultural dynamics, including what the Japanese call &ldquo...
Brandon Belt is clearly an All-Star, but is he even more valuable than that?

Brandon Belt is clearly an All-Star, but is he even more valuable than that?

If there was a natural hiding spot for an elite hitter to remain a well-kept secret, playing first base for the San Francisco Giants is the perfect post to take cover. Start with the position. The National League is loaded with name-brand talent at first base. Joey Votto is a five-time All-Star and the face of the franchise in Cincinnati. Paul Goldschmidt has finished in the top-three of NL MVP voting...

Cubs try to ignore local media's obsession with Manny Machado

Manny Machado Week entered Day Two on Tuesday, and no one seemed to be enjoying the hoopla as much as the Orioles themselves.

The story accompanying it described how players were egging the Orioles star on before his news conference. Things settled...

Up from 'The Bottom,' with something to prove

The two cellphones rested on the table, silent and still. Why wouldn't they ring? Derrius Guice could feel his family, friends and former coaches watching him. They all were waiting anxiously for the call, all wanting to hear the Louisiana State running back's name read aloud like those of all the other players who had sat in the green room. This April night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas - the...
Predicting NFL draft sleepers for Browns, Chargers, Jaguars

Predicting NFL draft sleepers for Browns, Chargers, Jaguars

Every NFL draft produces "sleeper" selections. Here are three by AFC teams in the recent draft. Due to bad behavior, Callaway didn't play last year with the Florida Gators. The man who drafted him has had very good results with players whose off-field decisions scared off other NFL talent men. With the Chiefs, John Dorsey drafted three players who raised significant questions about off-field...
