  • Berbatov scores as Monaco beats Lille 1-0 to pressure top 3

    Updated: 20 hr ago

    PARIS (AP) — Veteran striker Dimitar Berbatov scored in the 1-0 win over Lille for fifth-place Monaco to extend its unbeaten run to 12 games on Saturday and keep the pressure on the top three in the French league. Monaco has 11 clean sheets during its unbeaten run, conceded only one goal, and has 39 points — one less than fourth-place Saint-Etienne and two behind third-place Paris Saint-Germain, which travels to Saint-Etienne on Sunday. Leader Lyon has 45 points, one ahead of Marseille. Berbatov rose above defender David Rozehnal at the front post to head past goalkeeper Vicent Enyeama in the 57th minute for his second goal in three games, and seventh of the season.

  • Following news of split, Dempsey avoids attention at Daytona

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Actor and racing enthusiast Patrick Dempsey is trying to keep a low profile at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. A day after he and his wife announced they are divorcing after 15 years of marriage, Dempsey skipped an autograph session for fans — an event he usually takes part in — and was noticeably absent on the starting grid before the twice-around-the-clock endurance race at Daytona International Speedway. Dempsey is part of a four-man driver lineup in the No. 58 Porsche 911 fielded by Wright Motorsports. The 49-year-old "Grey's Anatomy" star spoke Friday before news broke that he and wife Jillian Fink mutually agreed to end their marriage.

  • Williams' hot shooting lifts K-State past Oklahoma St, 63-53

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Nino Williams would have fit right in during the era of short-shorts, when set shots were the norm and there was no such thing as a 3-point line. Then again, Kansas State's senior forward is doing just fine these days, too. Williams kept pouring in jumpers while scoring 20 points, and the Wildcats led from start to finish in a 63-53 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday. "That midrange shot, he's got it down," Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said, "and it's not something — any midrange basketball — is not part of today's basketball world." Marcus Foster and Justin Edwards added 14 points apiece for the Wildcats (12-8, 5-2 Big 12), who avenged a loss to the Cowboys earlier this month b

  • No. 3 Baylor women win 17th in row, 68-46 over Kansas State

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    WACO, Texas (AP) — Alexis Prince prefers taking shots over questions for No. 3 Baylor. That shyness Prince exhibits when talking to reporters after the game is radically different from her approach on the court during it. Prince scored 18 points and was big in two key runs to help the Lady Bears win their 17th consecutive game, 68-46 over Kansas State on Saturday. "She's not going to turn down a shot," coach Kim Mulkey said. "And we don't want her to." Baylor (18-1, 7-0 Big 12) went ahead to stay with a 15-1 run over a nearly 6½-minute span in the first half when the Wildcats missed eight consecutive shots after Brianna Craig's 3-pointer gave them their only lead at 6-5.

  • Chelsea, Man City shocked by lower-league teams in FA Cup

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    The FA Cup lived up to its so-called "giant-killing" reputation on Saturday when Chelsea and Manchester City were eliminated at home by lower-league opposition on a day of fourth-round shocks in the world's oldest knockout competition. Four of the English Premier League's top six were ousted on a classic FA Cup day, with leader Chelsea squandering a two-goal lead to lose 4-2 to third-tier Bradford at Stamford Bridge in the biggest surprise of them all. "It was a 'Black Saturday' for the Premier League teams," Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech said. "Every year you can see this kind of result in the FA Cup. It's just unfortunate that today, for the first time, I was on the wrong side of this miracle.

    Updated: 21 hr ago

    SYDNEY (AP) — Bruce Djite and Marcelo Carrusca scored doubles as Adelaide United crushed Newcastle 7-0 in the 15th round of the A-League on Saturday. Djite started the avalanche in the first minute and Carrusca scored twice during a 12-minute spell in the first half in which Adelaide scored three goals to take a 4-0 lead to halftime. Ultimately, Adelaide posted its largest win in the A-League since its 8-1 defeat of North Queensland in 2011. The win lifted Adelaide to second place ahead of Sunday's clash between first-place Perth and third-place Melbourne Victory. Fifth-place Sydney FC beat Central Coast 5-1 to end a seven-match winless streak.

    MALABO, Equatorial Guinea (AP) — Tactical changes again helped the Ivory Coast avoid defeat at the African Cup of Nations, this time in a 1-1 draw with Mali on Saturday. First-half substitute Max Gradel beat another substitute, Mali goalkeeper Germain Berthe, in the 87th minute to rescue the Ivorians and give the tournament favorites two points in Group D, the same as Mali. "We had to adapt as the game went on and make formational changes," said Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard, who also made a late change in the 1-1 draw with Guinea in the opening match. The Malians had taken an early lead at Malabo Stadium when Bakary Sako blasted in a cross from Sambou Yatabare in the seventh minute.

    John Helsley | Updated: 22 hr ago

    MANHATTAN, Kan. – Oklahoma State’s worst games almost all look the same. Slow starts. By the team. By Le’Bryan Nash. So it was Saturday at Kansas State, where the Cowboys – and Nash – were slow to launch and futile in rally mode, falling 63-53 at Bramlage Coliseum. Nash, OSU’s leading scorer, didn’t score until the 1:44 mark of the first half, with his team trailing by double-digits. His teammates scuffled as well, with only one Cowboy managing more than one field goal. After trailing by as many as 14 in the second half, OSU got within seven during one Phil Forte-fueled stretch, 37-30, but no closer. The Cowboys fall to 13-6 overall and 3-4 in the

  • Mourinho: Chelsea should be 'ashamed' after FA Cup shock

    Updated: 22 hr ago

    LONDON (AP) — Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho didn't hold back in blasting his players after an embarrassing 4-2 loss to third-tier Bradford in the FA Cup on Saturday, saying they should be "ashamed" and describing the result as a "disgrace." The Premier League leaders squandered a 2-0 lead after 38 minutes in the fourth-round match at Stamford Bridge as Mourinho lost against lower-league opposition for the first time in his two spells at Chelsea. "I repeat the word that I used yesterday in case we lost — it's a disgrace," Mourinho said. "A sporting disgrace, but it's a disgrace." Chelsea, which has won the FA Cup three times in the past five years, had won all 10 of its Premier League games at home this season.

    BATA, Equatorial Guinea (AP) — Neighbors Equatorial Guinea and Gabon will suspend their close friendship on Sunday as the teams meet in a decisive match for a quarterfinal place at the African Cup of Nations. The hopes of host Equatorial Guinea — and maybe the organizers' hopes for good crowds for the rest of the African Cup — rest on a win over Gabon at Bata Stadium as the final round of group games begin. New coach Esteban Becker has referred to his Equatorial Guinea as "a team for the future," but it needs to deliver now to reach the last eight, satisfy the home fans and keep them coming back to the stadiums. It's a common theme at African Cups that, when the host goes out, attendances tend to dip.
