WHO’S NEWS Izzo turns down Cavs, staying at MSU

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Tom Izzo is staying at Michigan State, turning down a chance to coach the Cleveland Cavaliers and perhaps LeBron James. “I knew at the beginning that whatever decision I made would be a decision for life,” IZZO Izzo said during a news conference on campus. “I am going to be a lifer. This is what I’m going to be, and I’m damn proud of it.” For the past nine days, Izzo has been trying to decide whether to leave the place that has been his home since 1983 and jump to the NBA to perhaps make $6 million — doubling his salary — and possibly coaching one of the best basketball players in the world. “Just as I decided to stay home, I hope a 6-8, 270-pound forward in Cleveland decides to stay home,” Izzo said in a statement released by the school. He said he did not talk to James. “I talked to enough people in his camp,” Izzo said. “He, too, has a very tough decision.” James’ uncertain future will make for a difficult decision for any prospective Cavs coach. The 25-yearold superstar is unlikely to tip his hand publicly before free agency begins July 1. Izzo acknowledged the idea of coaching the 25-year-old superstar was very tempting.

A-Rod remains out with groin injury

NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez is out of the New York Yankees’ lineup again, still sidelined by a sore groin for the opener of a World Series rematch against Philadelphia. Rodriguez sat out a threegame sweep of Houston A. Rodriguez last weekend with what the Yankees have called tendinitis in his right hip flexor. The slugger explained again Tuesday, however, that the soreness he feels is deep in the groin area. Ramiro Pena replaced Rodriguez at third base and batted ninth. Robinson Cano moved up to the cleanup spot in the lineup. In other news, the Yankees have placed long reliever Sergio Mitre on the 15-day disabled list and recalled left-hander Boone Logan from Triple-A Scranton/WilkesBarre. New York manager Joe Girardi says Mitre tweaked a muscle on his side during batting practice Sunday.

Collins, Glenn honored Monroe sophomores lead 2010 all-RRC track and field team BY JUSTIN MURDOCK

E-J Sports Writer

MONROE Sophomores Janieyah Collins and Jamie Glenn helped carry the Monroe High girls track and field team to a fourth-place finish at the 1A state championship last month. Glenn won a state title in the triple jump, while Collins racked up 30 of her team’s 40 points by placing second in three events and third in another. The Redhawks’ duo also helped their team win the Rocky River Conference meet in April. Collins won four events, while Glenn captured the triple. For their standout seasons, Glenn and Collins were honored by the league’s coaches. Glenn was voted Field Event Athlete of the Year in the RRC, while Collins was named Track Athlete of the Year. The Redhawks placed second at the RRC meet behind first-year Cuthbertson, which had six athletes named to the allconference squad. Tyneshia Walker earned all-RRC honors in the 400 meter dash, while Justine Neville, Rachel Miller, Hannah Sjobert, Valerie Afam and Megan Kiss were all at-large selections.

Braves star hints at retiring at end of this season ATLANTA (AP) — Struggling through another disappointing season, Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones met with team officials Tuesday to discuss his future and told The Associated Press he’s considering retirement. Jones declined to comment directly on whether he’ll retire at the end of the season, but it seemed clear that he’s made up his mind and merely needed to work out a settlement with the team over the $28 million in guaranteed money he’s owed for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. “It’s obvious that it’s something I’ve been thinking about,” Jones told the AP after arriving at Turner Field in his blue pickup truck about 2:15 p.m. “I need to go through the proper channels. Once those have all

been taken care of, everybody’s questions will be answered.” The 38-year-old Jones, who won the NL MVP award in 1999 and led the league in hitting just two years ago, met before batting practice with team president John Schuerholz, general manager Frank Wren and manager Bobby Cox. “As best as I can gather right now, he’s thinking about retiring after this JONES year,” Cox said. “But I can’t give a definitive answer.” Jones told the AP he planned to discuss some “red tape issues” with team officials.

Asked if those involved a resolution of his contract, Jones replied, “That would be fair to say.” He struggled last season and indicated that another difficult year would likely lead him to consider retirement, even if it meant walking away from a huge amount of money. This season has been even tougher for Jones, though the Braves are leading the NL East. He’s battled injuries and was hitting just .228 with three homers and 22 RBIs heading into the opener of a threegame series against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Braves have gotten more production at third base out of utility infielders Omar Infante (.314, one homer, 16 RBIs) and Brooks Conrad (.280, three homers, 12 RBIs).

Panthers sign two draft picks

CHARLOTTE (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have signed their first two draft picks, striking deals with sixthround selection David Gettis and seventhround choice R.J. Stanford. The 6-foot-3 Gettis is a receiver from Baylor who is expected to contend for a reserve spot and a role on special teams. The 5-foot-10 Stanford is a cornerback from Utah. He will compete for a job behind starters Chris Gamble and Richard Marshall and nickel back Captain Munnerlyn. Tuesday’s deals leave the Panthers with eight unsigned rookie picks, including quarterback Jimmy Clausen — a second-round selection. The Panthers didn’t have a first-round pick in April’s draft.

New Zealand, Slovakia tie at 1-all RUSTENBURG, South Africa (AP) — Winston Reid scored in second-half injury time Tuesday, lifting New Zealand to a 1-1 draw with Slovakia. Robert Vittek scored early in the second half, giving Slovakia the lead in World Cup Group F. But Reid sneaked behind the defense to take a long cross from Shane Smeltz and tie it. The Kiwis are ranked 78th in the world, 44 spots above Slovakia, which is in its first World Cup as an independent nation. Slovakia’s goal came in the 50th minute when Stanislav Sestak crossed from the right side. Reid missed his defensive header, allowing Vittek to scored from close range at

the far post. Vittek nearly doubled the lead in the 69th minute on a counterattack, but goalkeeper Mark Paston was quick off his line and made the save. All four teams have one point in Group F. Italy and Paraguay drew 1-1 Monday. Reid’s strike gave New Zealand its first point at a World Cup after going winless in its 1982 debut. Portugal 0, Ivory Coast 0 PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — Ivory Coast tied Portugal 0-0 at the World Cup, largely outplaying its higherranked opponent despite Didier Drogba only coming on as a late substitute.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo rattled a 30-yard strike off the left post in the 11th minute, but Ivory Coast otherwise created the better chances. Drogba came on as a 66thminute substitute for fellow Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou after FIFA cleared him to play with a cast on his right arm, which he broke in a warmup match against Japan on June 4. He was only ruled eligible shortly before kickoff at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, and his entrance was greeted by huge cheers, with vuvuzelas drowning out the drums of Ivorian fans for the first time in the match.

Brazil 2, North Korea 1 JOHANNESBURG — Maicon and Elano scored a goal apiece in the second half and Brazil broke through a solid North Korea defense to win its first 2010 World Cup match. Brazil escaped with a victory in the Group G match after struggling to get past the defensive setup of the North Koreans, who are making their first World Cup appearance in 44 years and arrived as the tournament’s lowest-ranked team. Maicon put Brazil ahead in the 55th minute after a through ball from Elano, making a run on the right side and firing into the far corner from a tight angle as North Korea goalkeeper Ri Myong Guk went for the cross. Elano then added to the lead in the 72nd after a welltimed pass from Robinho.

Kerr stepping down as Suns’ general manager PHOENIX (AP) — Steve Kerr won’t return as general manager of the Phoenix Suns, despite building a team that made a surprising run to the NBA’s Western Conference finals. Kerr said at a news conference Tuesday that the decision was a personal one. He insisted that reports of a contract disagreement with owner Robert Sarver were untrue. “This has nothing to do with money or contracts or anything like that,” he said. “This is a professional and a personal decision that I’m very, very comfortable with. My family’s excited about it, too.” The announcement of his departure came just 2 1/2 weeks after he expressed excitement about his future with the Suns

and confidence that he and Sarver would come to an agreement on a new contract. “It’s always important to take a little down time after a season ends to let the emotion kind of simmer and make a clear-headed decision,” Kerr said. He said “a couple of opportunities” to get back into broadcasting have surfaced in the last few weeks. Kerr was a TNT color commentator for NBA telecasts for four years before Sarver hired him three years ago. He said in an interview with The Associated Press a month ago that he sometimes longed for the simpler days behind the microphone. Kerr, who commutes from his home in San Diego, said he would stay on the job until his contract

expires at the end of June. The NBA draft is June 24. He said he wouldn’t leave if the organization wasn’t in good shape. “I wouldn’t have left a year ago, where we were,” he said. “But given where we are right now with a really good young base of talent, a great coaching staff, a lot of stability, a lot to be excited KERR about in the future, I’m very comfortable making this move.” One of the hardest things, Kerr said, is leaving coach Alvin Gentry. “There are a lot of relation-

ships that are very important,” he said. “That’s a big one ... Given where we were when he took over, I feel like I owe everything to him, the job he did to resurrect this team. He’s the guy who returned this team to our rightful place.” Sarver didn’t attend the news conference. Rick Welts, Suns president and chief executive officer, said the owner had “a prior commitment.” The owner issued a statement thanking Kerr “for all the contributions he has made to our club during his tenure, and for helping to lay the foundation for our current and future success.” The search for Kerr’s successor will include people inside and outside the organization, Welts said. In the meantime, Welts said,

Gentry will take a bigger role in personnel matters. Kerr was extremely well-liked throughout the Suns organization and there was a lot of sadness around US Airways Center on Tuesday. “There can’t be anybody more respected or better liked anywhere in the NBA than Steve Kerr,” Welts said. Kerr tried to explain why people should believe that he is leaving on his own accord. “This is a very taxing job,” he said. “My kids are 17, 15 and 12. They’re only under my roof a few more years and I haven’t seen a lot of them the last few years, and that’s a very important factor to me. My family’s always more important than my job and this is a big reason for this decision.”

Panthers giving troubled defensive lineman another shot CHARLOTTE (AP) — Ed Johnson’s off-field problems started at Penn State. Then came the drug possession arrest in Indianapolis. The Colts finally gave up on him a year later for what they called lack of performance. After being out of the NFL for much of last season, the Carolina Panthers are giving Johnson a chance to shed his image of a talented, run-stopping defensive tackle who isn’t worth the trouble. “I look at it as I’m a free agent again coming out of Penn State without a job,” Johnson said, “and now I have to fight for my life to get a job.” Depth issues and a coach’s familiarity with Johnson may make Carolina the best spot for the 6-foot-2, 296-pound Johnson. The Panthers desperately need help at defensive tackle. Damione Lewis, Maake Kemoeatu and Hollis Thomas, who have combined to start 57 games for Carolina in the past two seasons, were either released or not re-signed. Tank Tyler and Louis Leonard, who each spent most of

last season on injured reserve, lead a remaining group of tackles with little experience on a defensive line that also must replace five-time Pro Bowl end Julius Peppers. So there’s plenty of playing time available. And Johnson knows the defense, since Panthers defensive coordinator Ron Meeks was running the Colts’ defense in 2007 when Johnson started all 16 games and collected 63 tackles as an undrafted rookie. “I know what he expects from me. I know what he wants me to do,” Johnson said of Meeks. “I know the things he’s seen me do before. But I don’t think it’s a comfort zone when the bar is so high and you have to meet those expectations.” Johnson has had difficulty with the meeting expectations part. Part of the reason he went undrafted was a series of college transgressions. He was suspended in 2004 for his role in an off-campus fight. He was temporarily kicked out of school a year later for what was referred to as a

sexual misconduct violation, although no charges were filed. Coach Joe Paterno suspended him from his final college game — the Outback Bowl at the end of the 2006 season — for violating a team rule. Still, Paterno’s positive recommendation helped him get an opportunity with the Colts. “I was young, I was immature then. I made some mistakes, but he knew me,” Johnson said. JOHNSON “He knew the type of work I put in.” Johnson appeared to silence critics after his impressive rookie season when he took over for injured starter Anthony McFarland in training camp and appeared on his way to being another Colts undrafted success story. That all changed early in the 2008 season, when Johnson was waived less than 24 hours after he charged

with marijuana possession following a traffic stop. “Ed was well aware that his past history required him to be in complete compliance with club rules,” Colts president Bill Polian said at the time. Indianapolis resisted bringing him back even though it became one of the league’s worst teams in stopping the run without him. The Colts changed their mind when they re-signed Johnson before last season. He had to sit out Week 1 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy because of his marijuana arrest, then returned to the starting lineup. But in early October, the Colts abruptly cut Johnson again. Coach Jim Caldwell insisted it wasn’t for off-field problems, but instead “was a matter of production.” “Not really sure,” Johnson said on why he was released. “It’s football, people get cut every day, people lose their jobs every day. I don’t agree with it but you’ve got to move on. You’ve got to keep playing.” Trouble was, nobody

Track

wanted Johnson. He spent the final three months of the season out of the game. “Very frustrating, but it’s just one of those things,” Johnson said. “I’ve got great faith in God and I just kept believing.” It’s surprising in some ways the Panthers were the team to end his NFL exile. Carolina has avoided players with troubled pasts for much of the past decade. Coach John Fox said they did extensive background work on Johnson before signing him to a one-year deal in February. “I think he has gotten himself straightened out,” Fox said. “There’s no question whether he can play football.” Johnson has been working mostly with the backups during voluntary workouts this month. But with Carolina’s line depth in flux, he’ll likely get a chance to work his way into the rotation and could even start. “Sitting out last year gave me a lot of time to put things in perspective and see where I need to be at on the field and off the field,” Johnson said, “and see which direction I need to be heading in.”

Walker won the 400 in a time of 1:06.9, while Neville (100m hurdles), Miller (1,600), Sjobert (pole vault), Afam (triple jump) and Kiss (3,200) all placed second in their respective events. Cuthbertson’s Michael Dempster was voted Coach of the Year in the RRC. Piedmont, which placed third at the RRC meet, had four athletes named to the allleague team. Ashlann Barbee made the honorary squad after winning the 800 at the league meet. Amanda Hinson won the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs while Megan Ludwig brought home the title in the pole vault. Shinese Allen was an at-large selection for the Panthers. Piedmont’s 4x800 relay team was also selected to the allRRC team, along with Forest Hills’ 4x200 and 4x400 relay squads. Forest Hills had three athletes make the all-conference team, including Ciera DeBerry, Jaleesa Jackson and Oceanonnia Long. DeBerry won the high jump at the RRC meet. Jackson captured the shot put while Long took home the title in the discus. Union Academy’s Kendall Cox, who won the long jump at the RRC meet, also made the all-league team. Central Academy’s Tasha Boyd and Xuan Lam made the squad as at-large selections.

“Well, anytime you’ve struggled at the plate and you’re having trouble producing, it’s frustrating,” Jones told the AP, standing outside the Braves clubhouse. “I’m used to being in the middle of everything, but it hasn’t been happening. Hopefully I’ll have a better second half and really help contribute to this team staying in first place.” The team later put out a statement saying Jones would not be available to the media Tuesday. He took part in batting practice and was in the starting lineup, batting in his usual third spot. The Braves were returning home from an 11-game road trip; Jones played just four of those games because of an ailing finger. “He’s been bothered by that finger, but he’s fine right now,” Cox said. “We’ve got him back in there. Hopefully he can lead us to a championship.” Baseball already lost one of the generation’s biggest stars when Ken Griffey Jr. abruptly retired this month in the middle of his 22nd season. Jones has put together a career that could get him in the mix for Cooperstown — he had 429 career homers and trailed only Mickey Mantle (536) and Eddie Murray (504) among switch-hitters. Jones has long been the face of the Braves’ offense, helping Atlanta wins its lone World Series title as a rookie in 1995 and significantly contributing to an unprecedented run of 14 straight division titles. His best year was 1999, when he led the Braves to the NL championship and was named MVP after hitting .319 with 45 homers and 110 RBIs. Jones’ numbers dipped dramatically in 2009. He batted only .264 — the second-lowest average of his 16-year career — with 18 homers and 71 RBIs.

Cuthbertson freshman Tyneshia Walker made the 2010 all-conference team.

Swisher, Yankees thump Halladay NEW YORK (AP) — Nick Swisher and the New York Yankees handed Roy Halladay a rare thumping, beating the Philadelphia Phillies and their new ace 8-3 Tuesday night in a World Series rematch. Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Swisher all homered off Halladay to build a comfortable cushion for CC Sabathia in a marquee pitching matchup that fizzled early. Brett Gardner laced a two-run triple in the second inning and the Yankees, who began the day tied with Tampa Bay for the AL East lead, won their ninth straight home game — the club’s best

powerful lineup. He went seven innings, allowing five hits and striking out seven while winning his third consecutive start. It was his first victory against a team other than Baltimore since he beat Texas on April 16. The big left-hander is 4-0 against the Orioles this season and 3-3 against everyone else. But he is 9-0 in his past 13 starts at Yankee Stadium since last year’s All-Star break. Making his third start since his perfect game at Florida on May 29, Halladay (8-5) matched a career high by serving up three homers — the same amount he allowed in his first 13 outings with Philadelphia.

Marlins anxious for touted rookie to break out MIAMI (AP) — Mike Stanton extended his arms and swung, prompting all the heads packed around the batting cage to look upward and to the left, following the flight of a white baseball against a blue sky. A few seconds later, the ball landed, about 15 rows from the very top of Sun Life Stadium. And standing a few feet away, Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez nodded knowingly. Sure, it was only batting practice on Tuesday afternoon. But the Marlins believe a star is being born before their eyes. The 20-year-old new Marlins right fielder was in the lineup for his home debut Tuesday, a week after getting called to the majors and officially ending weeks of “When’s Stanton coming up?” talk. He went 0 for 4 in a 3-2 loss to Texas on Tuesday night, lowering his average to .304 after six

games, yet he’s already won over the 24 older men who dress alongside him now in the Marlins’ clubhouse, and seems to be handling all the attention with relative ease. “I definitely thought I’d be a little more nervous, the first week, the first game and whatnot,” Stanton said. “But you know, the guys have made me feel real comfortable and I’m doing everything I can to make myself comfortable. So you know, it’s STANTON been fun, it’s been a good time and hopefully it keeps going.” Oh, it’ll keep going. Gonzalez says Stanton will play every day, and there’s no argument

in the Marlins’ clubhouse as to why that’s the case. “He’s a 20-year-old with a 26- or 27-year-old mind,” Marlins infielder Wes Helms said. “He’s very mature. Wants to get better. He’ll be special.” The word’s getting out, too. The Marlins were hoping for a slightly bigger home crowd than usual Tuesday night, and got it — the attendance was announced at 17,130, about 5,000 more than have showed up for many midweek games this season. The buzz started long before the first pitch, with about a half-dozen Rangers lined up about 30 feet away to watch Stanton take batting practice. “You look at the ball coming off his bat, it’s impressive,” Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said last weekend, when the Marlins took two of three from the Rays.
