BASKETBALL

VILNIUS Kalen Ballage Color Rush Jersey , Lithuania (AP) – The brothers of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball landed in rainy Lithuania to start their career with a local basketball club.

The 19-year-old LiAngelo and his younger brother LaMelo, who is 16, signed professional one-year contracts with BC Prienai last month. The brothers arrived with their father LaVar Ball, the creator of Big Baller Brand.

FIGURE SKATING

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Rising star Bradie Tennell continued her breakout season by winning the women’s short program at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Tennell saved the best short program of her career for the most important event and scored 73.79 points.

Mirai Nagasu, the 2008 U.S. champion and a 2010 Olympian who was passed over for the team four years ago, stood second, .7 behind Tennell. Defending champion Karen Chen, who has had a poor campaign, reversed that as the final skater and was third.

HOCKEY

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The Vegas Golden Knights signed leading scorer Jonathan Marchessault to a $30 million, six-year contract extension, the clearest sign yet that the first-year, first-place organization is going for it.

Since being taken from the Florida Panthers in the expansion draft, Marchessault has been a big reason for the Golden Knights’ surprising inaugural season. The 27-year-old forward has 15 goals and 22 assists in 37 games for Vegas Durham Smythe Color Rush Jersey , which leads the Western Conference at 27-9-2.

NEW YORK (AP) – Lightning star Steven Stamkos will serve as captain of the Atlantic Division team in the NHL All-Star 3-on-3 tournament this month in Tampa, Florida.

WOMEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL

GRAMBLING, La. (AP) – Shakyla Hill’s assist in the closing seconds of Grambling State’s win over Alabama State gave the junior guard the fourth quadruple-double in NCAA women’s basketball history.

Hill had 10 assists to go with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 steals. The last quadruple-double was by Soja Tate of Arkansas State against Mississippi Valley State on Jan. 27, 1993.

SKIING

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) – Mikaela Shiffrin took a women’s World Cup slalom for her seventh win in 14 starts this season.

The Olympic champion from the United States built on a commanding first-run lead to beat Wendy Holdener of Switzerland by 1.59 seconds.

Frida Hansdotter of Sweden was 2.11 behind in third, while Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova, the only skier to beat Shiffrin in a slalom event this season, finished 2.24 off the lead in fourth.

After skipping two speed races in Val d’Isere last month, Shiffrin leads the overall standings with 1,081 points after 16 of this season’s 38 races. Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany trails by 571 points in second.

Shiffrin is the defending slalom and overall World Cup champion.

TENNIS

Kei Nishikori pulled out of the Australian Open because his right wrist is not fully recovered enough from a torn tendon to withstand the rigor of best-of-five-set matches at a Grand Slam tournament.

Nishikori’s agent, Olivier van Lindonk, announced the 2014 U.S. Open runner-up’s withdrawal in an email.

The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the new season Jason Sanders Color Rush Jersey , begins Jan. 15.

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) – Former champion Milos Raonic lost in straight sets to 18-year-old Alex De Minaur in a second-round upset at the Brisbane International.

Raonic, who won the Brisbane title in 2016 and reached the Wimbledon final that year, struggled to find rhythm with his usually booming serve in a 6-4, 6-4 loss to the Australian wild-card entry. The victory put De Minaur into a quarterfinal match against American qualifier Michael Mmoh, who upset No. 8-seeded Mischa Zverev 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.

SOCCER

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Orlando City signed forward Dom Dwyer to a three-year contract.

Dwyer, who played on the U.S. national team last year, was traded to Orlando from Kansas City last July. The deal included an MLS-record $1.6 million in allocation money.

Dwyer had nine goals and five assists in league play overall last season, including four goals and four assists after coming to Orlando.

Orlando also acquired midfielder Sacha Kljestan and $150,000 in allocation money in a trade with the New York Red Bulls for forward Carlos Rivas and center back Tommy Redding.

CARSON, Calif. (AP) – Defender Ashley Cole agreed to return for another season with the LA Galaxy. The MLS club announced a one-year contract with the 37-year-old English star. Cole had one goal and two assists in 29 games as the Galaxy’s left back last year. The former Arsenal and Chelsea stalwart has been with the Galaxy for the past two seasons, making 55 appearances as one of MLS’ most effective left backs.

SPEEDSKATING

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Heather Bergsma won the 1 Mike Remmers Color Rush Jersey ,000 meters at the U.S. speedskating trials, with Brittany Bowe finishing second to join her longtime rival on the Olym Major League Baseball will come to Omaha for a day next year as part of an initiative to take the product to new places, commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday.

As part of the buildup for the 2019 College World Series, the Detroit Tigers will play a regular-season game against the Kansas City Royals at TD Ameritrade Park on June 13. The CWS starts two days later.

”The College World Series in and of itself is a great event with a great tradition,” Manfred said at a news conference. ”We hope by playing here we bring even more attention to this game and help strengthen our relationship with the NCAA and college baseball as a whole.”

Manfred said there’s no commitment to play a regular-season game in Omaha beyond next year, but that possibility exists.

MLB has played regular-season games in Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico and also at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in conjunction with the Little League World Series.

”Each of these events has helped focus the attention of the United States and major parts of the world on what we think of as the greatest game of the world,” Manfred said. ”The game here in Omaha will be the next step in this important initiative.”

The Royals-Tigers matchup also will serve to acknowledge the ties between the college and professional game. It will be played in the 24,000-seat stadium that opened in 2011.

”This may be the best non-major league facility in North America,” he said.

Of the 641 drafted players on major league Opening Day rosters this year, 61 percent were from four-year colleges. The Royals chose 34 junior-college or four-year players in this year’s draft; the Tigers picked 35 Danny Shelton Color Rush Jersey , including the overall No. 1, pitcher Casey Mize of Auburn.

General managers Dayton Moore of the Royals and Al Avila of the Tigers started their careers in college baseball. Moore was an assistant coach at George Mason from 1990-94. Avila was an assistant to current LSU coach Paul Mainieri at St. Thomas University in 1988, and head coach there from 1989-92.

Among the Tigers’ other ties to the CWS: manager Ron Gardenhire played shortstop for Texas in the 1979, catcher James McCann played for Arkansas in 2009, Matt Boyd pitched for Oregon State in 2013. Their No.1 pick last year, pitcher Alex Faedo, helped lead Florida to the 2017 national championship.

Royals left fielder Alex Gordon grew up 50 miles from Omaha, in Lincoln, and played on Nebraska’s 2005 CWS team. The Royals this year drafted Florida’s Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar in the first round.

Omaha has hosted the College World Series since 1950. Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson is from Omaha and Royals greats such as George Brett, David Cone and Frank White played Triple-A ball in Omaha, which has been home to Kansas City’s top farm club since 1969.

”We’re at a point in time in the history of baseball where we all understand the importance of being united and doing everything we can to grow the game,” Moore said, ”so it’s a special honor for the Royals to be able to take part in this historic game.”
