FRANCO MILLER AND REBELS ON TOUR IN CANADA By RENALDO DORSETT Tribune Sports Reporter email@example.com FRANCO Miller had his first opportunity to suit up as an official member of Ole Miss Rebels Basketball as the team continues its preseason foreign tour through Canada. The Rebels played the first two games of the tour in Montreal with wins over the McGill Redmen and Concordia Stingers before the tour shifted to Ottawa last night for a matchup against Carleton. Miller, the freshman guard, has played sparingly thus far with just five minutes and two points against McGill and did not see action against Concordia. Against the Stingers, Ole Miss trailed by 10 at the half before they implemented a 1-3-1 zone and outscored the home team 49-32 in the second half for an 84-77 win. In their first game under new head coach Kermit Davis, the Rebels scored a 102-61 win over McGill. The tour represents a return to Canada for Miller in the country where he spent a year on the prep basketball circuit to boost his recruitment stock. Last season, Miller travelled

SUN OIL LIMITED SHOOTS TO WIN WITH CYBOTS BASKETBALL CAMP SINCE 2002, Wayde Watson, a former Bahamian basketball player and product of Bain and Grants Town, has headed the Carry Your Brethren On The Shoulders (CYBOTS) Basketball Club, headquartered at the ‘George Brown Park’ on Dumping Ground Corner. The club is geared towards the personal and professional development of the youth and adults in
New Providence, particularly in the Bain Town community, with Sun Oil Limited as its primary sponsor. “We take pride in seeing that this club has been so successful in achieving its goal of positive community development,” said Sun Oil Limited marketing manager Rufus Johnson II. “We continue to support programmes such as this.”
CYBOTS hosts several annual community initiatives. One of its projects, dubbed the ‘Shares Programme’ focused around the Thanksgiving season, requires members to give their time and effort socialising and feeding children and senior citizens in New Providence who are less fortunate. According to Watson, Sun Oil plays a major role in the
sustainability of CYBOTS. “Sun Oil’s contribution has helped relieve financial burden and allowed us to really help the kids and push them towards success,” he said. “I am so grateful for that.” With a committed leader and team of over 100 members from all walks of life, and a cadre of titles under its belt, CYBOTS like Sun Oil Limited continue to “fuel growth of people.”

Each team has to create a business plan, present and ‘sell’ it to a sponsor who provides virtual funding for uniforms,
helmets, tires and parts,” he said. “We have seen high school students come out of school and immediately into a job because of the skills they learned in EduKarting. Two of them are working for a large auto dealer now in the service division and another has gone on to become a pilot.”
He said the programme aims to bring greater exposure for young Bahamians to a sport which presents new opportunities through “stealth education.” Nearly every famous Formula One or NASCAR racer got his or her start in karting,” said Mr McLaughlin, who also serves as the Bahamas and Caribbean Motor Sport
development director of FIA, the motorsports association under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee. “Who knows? The Bahamas, which has produced great athletes in track and field, basketball, tennis and swimming, may one day produce a great race car driver. “Look at Lewis Hamilton of Grenada and
the United Kingdom who got his first go kart at the age of six and showed so much promise by the time he was a teen that his father gave up his career and sometimes worked as many as three jobs to support his son’s ambition in motorsport. “Today, he is the most famous Formula One driver alive.”

While there, he averaged 25.8 points, six rebounds, 5.2 assists and 3.3 steals per game. He broke the 40-point threshold twice throughout the year, tallying a game-high 42 points versus Thetford Academy and scoring 40 points against the Toronto Basketball Club. While north of the border, Miller earned first-team All-Canada NPA honours, first team All-CISAA accolades and Universal Hoops First Team All-Canada recognition. His play also earned him a spot in the prestigious Allen Iverson Roundball Classic as well as the Signature All-Canadian Showcase. His busy recruitment process came to an end in May when he committed to the Rebels. Miller signed his national letter of intent to join the programme’s incoming 2018 class during a special ceremony hosted on the campus of his alma mater, Tabernacle Baptist Christian Academy. The 6’3” point guard chose Ole Miss over his final list of schools – Oklahoma, Minnesota, Oregon, and Towson. “As a freshman coming in you want to go somewhere that you can make an impact. Ole Miss, they’re in one of the toughest conferences in college basketball, the SEC, and I have a chance to come in as a freshman to start and have the ball in my hand so it impacted my decision,” he said. “I fit in well with the style of play coach Davis runs, when I was there on my visit he showed me a lot of things that I would run and it definitely fits my play style so it all factored into my decision-making.” The Rebels finished 12-20 last season and 5-13 in the SEC in the last year of former coach Andy Kennedy. Davis was introduced as the Rebels new head coach in March and quickly recruited a top 50 class for 2018 including KJ Buffen and Blake Hinson. He became the second Grand Bahama native in as many months to become a member of Rebels basketball after Yolett McPhee-McCuin was introduced as the head coach of the Ole Miss women’s basketball programme in April. “She was a part of this too,” he said. “She made Ole Miss feel like home to me. I know that I got someone to look out for me and I’m not just there on my own. The coaching staff made me feel comfortable even if she wasn’t there.”

But Okafor’s production fell considerably last season from the nearly 15 points and six rebounds he averaged through his first two seasons with the 76ers. He appeared in only two games with Philadelphia last season before being traded to Brooklyn, where he played about 13 minutes per game as a reserve, averaging 6.4 points.

BROWNS ROOKIE QB MAYFIELD NOT NERVOUS HEADING INTO NFL DEBUT By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer CLEVELAND (AP) — Baker Mayfield played on a big stage at Oklahoma, so he’s not scared of stepping onto football’s biggest one. The Browns rookie quarterback — and perhaps their QB of the future — will make his NFL exhibition debut tonight as Cleveland visits the New York Giants in a game that will feature the top two overall picks in this year’s draft: Mayfield and Giants running back Saquon Barkley. Almost from the time he first picked up a football, the Heisman Trophy winner has been looking forward to his first game action as a pro. But he won’t let that thrill overwhelm him. “Played this game for a long time, I don’t get nervous,” said Mayfield, currently No. 2 on Cleveland’s depth chart behind Tyrod Taylor. “So I’m going to say I’m not going to have to worry about that part. Anytime I get the
chance to play ball, yeah, I get excited, but however much I play I’ve got to take advantage of the opportunity, that’s for sure.” Coach Hue Jackson want to play Mayfield two quarters, sending him in after Taylor gets in some work leading Cleveland’s firstteam offence for a series or two. The Browns’ plan — at this point — is to have Mayfield spend the season watching and learning behind Taylor, who led Buffalo to the playoffs last season and has quickly established himself as a leader in Cleveland. Mayfield understands he has to be patient, and while waiting for his turn he’s had an impressive training camp. He releases the ball quickly and accurately, and Mayfield seems to have a solid grasp of coordinator Todd Haley’s offence. But although Jackson said Mayfield has exceeded expectations, he’s committed to opening the season with Taylor behind centre. “We are going to grow our
quarterbacks,” Jackson said last week. “Tyrod Taylor is our quarterback. Baker Mayfield is competing and getting better each and every day, still learning the National Football League. Has done a really nice job of learning our system and improving every day.” The 23-year-old Mayfield showed poise during an intrasquad scrimmage last week. He led Cleveland’s backups on an opening touchdown drive, but later struggled in the red zone against Cleveland’s starting defence and also threw his first interception of camp. He knows the tempo and intensity will be even higher against the Giants. “When you get the energy level up, you’ve got to be able to execute, so that’s why I’m excited about Thursday as well,” he said. “You get people hyped up, you actually get some contact in and you can focus in and do your job when there are distractions around, so I think we handled the first one pretty well, but it definitely can go a lot better.”

The 45-year-old Colon, from the Dominican Republic, made his sixth start since earning his 245th win on June 30 that matched the mark held by Dennis Martinez from Nicaragua. Colon (6-10) gave up four runs in seven innings. The portly and popular righthander struck out one and walked none.

Twins left-hander Adalberto Mejia (2-0) pitched five innings of one-hit ball before departing due to a strained left wrist. Indians right-hander Carlos Carrasco (13-6)
allowed three runs and 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings. The start of the game was delayed by rain for 2 hours, 10 minutes. PHILLIES 5, DIAMONDBACKS 2 PHOENIX (AP) — Nick Pivetta threw six scoreless innings for Philadelphia, and Nick Williams homered. Pivetta (7-9) scattered five hits, struck out six and walked one to get his first win in four starts. The Phillies, who blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning and lost 3-2 in 14 in a 4-hour, 38-minute game on Monday, led 5-0 after a four-run eighth. Zack Greinke (12-7) allowed only Williams’ solo homer on three hits in seven innings but lost his second straight. Pat Neshek pitched a scoreless ninth for his second save. DODGERS 4, ATHLETICS 2 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Rich Hill pitched into the sixth to beat his former club for the first time, and the Dodgers stopped the Athletics’ six-game winning streak. Hill (5-4) allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings. He is 3-1 with a 3.12 ERA in eight road starts. Kenley Jansen closed it out with a pair of strikeouts in a perfect ninth for his 32nd save. Khris Davis hit a tworun homer in the sixth for Oakland. Sean Manaea (10-8) was charged with three runs in 2 2/3 innings. PADRES 11, BREWERS 5 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Manuel Margot homered, tripled, singled and drove in five runs, powering San Diego to the victory. Franmil Reyes added three RBIs for the Padres. Matt Strahm (3-3) got one out for the win. Jesus Aguilar and Mike Moustakas staked Milwaukee to a 4-0 first-inning lead with a pair of tworun homers — Aguilar’s team-best 27th and Moustakas’ 22nd and second as a Brewer. All-Star Josh Hader (4-1) was charged with the loss after allowing two runs in 1 1/3 innings. ASTROS 2, GIANTS 1 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tyler White hit a tworun homer in the eighth inning, helping Houston put together another late rally. The win followed the Astros’ 3-1 victory Monday night in which Marwin Gonzalez hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth. This time, the AL West leaders again trailed 1-0 when Gonzalez doubled and White hit a high, arching shot to left field off Ray Black (1-1).
The Astros have won six of seven and the Giants have lost four of five. Joe Smith (4-1) got the win, and Hector Rondon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save. RAYS 4, ORIOLES 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Willy Adames hit a solo homer with two out in the ninth inning, lifting Tampa Bay to the victory. Adames’ fifth home run of the season came off Miguel Castro (2-6). Sergio Romo (2-2) got the win after retiring two batters in the ninth, helping Tampa Bay break a threegame losing streak. Tim Beckham and Trey Mancini homered for Baltimore, and Alex Cobb pitched seven strong innings. REDS 6, METS 1 NEW YORK (AP) — Cincinnati’s Sal Romano got the win in his New York homecoming, pitching into the seventh inning in a game delayed by rain for 1 hour, 40 minutes in the first.
Romano (7-9) was born in Syosset on nearby Long Island and grew up in Southington, Connecticut. He allowed a run in sixplus innings, helping the Reds stop a three-game skid. Phillip Ervin hit a tworun homer for Cincinnati and finished with three RBIs. Mets starter Jason Vargas (2-8) recorded just one out and was charged with three runs and three hits. CUBS 5, ROYALS 0 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mike Montgomery pitched five-hit ball into the seventh inning and David Bote drove in a career-high three runs, leading the Cubs to the win. Montgomery (4-4) picked up his first win since June 29. He is 3-0 with a 0.40 ERA in four appearances against the Royals. Kansas City rookie Brad Keller (4-5) was removed after six innings, allowing four runs and seven hits. The Royals have lost six straight and are 14-43 since May 30.

Unseeded Cornet upsets Wimbledon champion Kerber at the Rogers Cup MONTREAL (AP) — Alizé Cornet of France defeated listless-looking Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber 6-4, 6-1 in the second round of the Rogers Cup yesterday. The unseeded Cornet advanced to a third-round meeting with 15th-seeded Ashleigh Barty of Australia, who beat Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck 7-6 (7) 6-2. Kerber leads her all-time series with Cornet 3-2, but the Frenchwoman has won both of their meetings on hard courts. Cornet’s last win over a player ranked in the top 5 in the world was also a hard-court win over Kerber in Beijing in 2017. Kerber, from Germany, led the WTA Tour in hardcourt wins this year with 21, but she wilted in the sticky heat at IGA Stadium in her first match since her Wimbledon triumph.
“It is one match, I know I have to learn from it,” said the fourth-seeded Kerber. “I took a few weeks off after Wimbledon so I knew I had to come here, play a lot of matches, and also to get used to the hard courts again. “Of course, it was not the plan to play just one match, but at the end, this is tennis. Every tournament starts from zero. Now I’ll try to get ready for the next tournament.” Maria Sharapova continued her bid to climb back to the top of women’s tennis with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over 12th-seeded Daria Kasatkina. Sharapova, the former world No. 1 who was ranked 149th a year ago after serving a 15-month doping ban, got a second one-sided win in a row. The Russian will face fifth-seeded Caroline
Garcia of France in the third round. Sharapova is 4-1 in previous meetings, but Garcia won their last one this year in Stuttgart. Unseeded Kiki Bertens is ranked 18th in the world, so it wasn’t much of an upset when she beat ninthseeded Karolina Pliskova 6-2, 6-2 to advance to a third-round matchup with eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova. The top eight seeds had gotten a bye to the second round. Qualifier Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain, a former top-10 player, got past Lesia Tsurenko 6-4, 3-2 when her Ukrainian opponent retired in the second set. Francoise Abanda faced American Sloane Stevens later on Wednesday on what was forecast to be a rainy day.

ENGLAND CRICKETER SAYS HE PROTECTED GAY MEN IN STREET BRAWL BRISTOL, England (AP) — England cricket player Ben Stokes told police that two gay men thanked him for protecting them from homophobic abuse following a street brawl. Stokes is standing trial at Bristol Crown Court accused of knocking out two other men outside a nightclub in the southwest English city in September last year. Prosecutors say Stokes was the “main aggressor” in a fight that broke out after an England match. But in a statement provided to police and heard in court yesterday, Stokes said he only stepped in after hearing two men being homophobic toward two other men. Stokes said “matters had become too serious to ignore and that I had to intervene.” Stokes himself is accused of earlier mocking the gay men outside the club and flicking a cigarette butt at them. Stokes denies taunting them, telling police they “thanked me for preventing them from being beaten up.” The trial continues.
Novak Djokovic advances to 2nd round in Toronto TORONTO (AP) — Novak Djokovic advanced to the second round with a 6-3, 7-6 (7) win over lucky loser Mirza Basic at the Rogers Cup on Tuesday. And former world No. 3 Stan Wawrinka came back to beat 16th-seed Nick Kyrgios 1-6, 7-5, 7-5. The four-time champion Djokovic, the ninth seed in Toronto, took care of his serve in the win over his Bosnian opponent. Djokovic had nine aces and was good on 76 per cent of his first serves, converting 76 per cent of his first service points and 79 per cent of his second service points. He had some trouble late in the second set, losing his serve to set up the tiebreak, before rallying. The Serbian star, who last won the Rogers Cup in 2016 and is coming off a win at Wimbledon this year, will next face wild-card Peter Polansky of Canada. Wawrinka, a three-time Grand Slam champion, came into the tournament ranked 195th in the world as he looks to get back into form following knee surgery. The Swiss player was originally given a qualifying spot in Toronto, but advanced to the main draw when former No. 1 Andy Murray withdrew. Kyrgios, from Australia, broke Wawrinka twice in the first-round match and had seven aces in a dominant first set. Wawrinka battled back, converting on 86 per cent of his first service points to take the second set. He broke Kyrgios in the final game of the third set, converting his second match point opportunity when the Australian couldn’t handle his return. “Stan, for him to get through matches like this, healthy, no pain, that’s a good sign for him,” Kyrgios said. “He’s playing a good level. He’s got a world-class backhand and matches like this are going to give him
confidence. “But I can’t take any positives away from this at all.” In other matches, Robin Haase of the Netherlands downed Japan’s Kei Nishikori 7-5, 6-1. Americans Sam Querrey, Frances Tiafoe and Ryan Harrison joined Russia’s Karen Khachanov and Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas as other first-round winners. Tiafoe will face Canada’s Milos Raonic in the second round. Denis Shapovalov of Canada also advanced to the second round, defeating No. 46 Jeremy Chardy of France 6-1, 6-4 in the night
Canadians advance to the second round,” Shapovalov said. “I’m really happy. It’s a good day for Canadian tennis.” Auger-Aliassime, on the eve of his 18th birthday, saved 5 of 6 break points and converted on 3 of 6. He also had five aces — including four in the second set — and won 73 per cent of his first service points. “It’s funny because I was thinking about it the whole year. I was like, ‘OK like, this year I’m turning 18. ... it’s all exciting,’” AugerAliassime said. “I had plans for my birthday. And now that the tournament is

The top-ranked Canadian in the men’s singles draw at No. 26, Shapovalov let out an emphatic yell when he sealed the victory in front of a cheering home crowd that included Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid. Canadian wild card Felix Auger-Aliassime upset Lucas Pouille of France 6-4, 6-3, cruising into the second round in his main draw debut at the Masters 1000 tournament. The Montreal native, ranked a career-high No. 133 in the world heading into the week, needed 1 hour, 18 minutes to down the No. 18 Pouille on centre court at the Aviva Centre. “In a way he really pumped me up with his win. I was like, ‘OK let’s make it back to back and have two
here, it’s like I have another priority.” The teen started strong, breaking Pouille in the second game of the first set, then fighting off triple break point for a 3-0 lead. Pouille broke the Canadian while he was serving for the set at 5-3, but AugerAliassime bounced back with another break for set point, letting out an approving roar as fans waved Canada flags in the seats. Auger-Aliassime converted on another break point in the second set and held serve the rest of the way to secure just his second career win at a Masters 1000 event. He will face Russian qualifier Daniil Medvedev in the second round. Medvedev upset 13th-seeded American Jack Sock on Monday.

Tiger Woods takes ice bath, prepares for final major of year By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer ST LOUIS (AP) — Tiger Woods at times looks similar to the guy who won the PGA Championship four times among his 14 major titles, except for the results. And except for the way he began the week of the final major of the year. He took an ice bath. “Just trying to get some inflammation down, and just trying to get ready for the rest of the week,” Woods said Tuesday, saying only that the inflammation was “everywhere,” without elaborating what caused it. “And a lot of stretching. Did a light lift yesterday and was ready to go for today.” Little good that did him. Rain pounded Bellerive Country Club, twice suspending practice rounds. Woods played only five holes on the course he last saw the day after the September 11 terrorist attacks, a few hours before the American Express Championship was cancelled.
He returns nearly as much of a mystery as when the year started. Just over two weeks ago, Woods had full control of his shots and moved into the lead during the middle of the final round at the British Open. He was feeling so good about his game that he took an all-or-nothing shot out of a pot bunker on the 10th hole that he thought might be a deciding moment, and he pulled it off. And then he missed the birdie putt, made a double bogey on the next hole and faded away. Still, it built even more hype about his chances heading into the PGA Championship — until he shot 73-73 on the weekend at Firestone, a course that he has dominated as much as any other. It’s been like that all year. He was one shot out of the lead on the back nine at consecutive tournaments in Florida, and then was never a factor at the Masters. He missed the cut in the US Open, and then had
Woods last played in the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in 2015, when he missed the cut in the PGA for the second straight year. Woods has never been much for moral victories, though he has said throughout the year he considers himself “blessed” simply to be playing. There have been enough moments this year, however — Carnoustie would be one of them — that it wouldn’t be a surprise if he contended at Bellerive. “He’s got all the components of the game,” Rory McIlroy said. “He’s learned how to make a swing work for him again. He’s learning to compete again. He’s learning what you have to do on the back nine of a major on Sunday. All those things, he’s been through. He’s building up all that ... I don’t want to say experience, but even though he’s won 14 of these things, if you haven’t done it for a while, you still have to re-learn a few things.”
TIGER WOODS (AP) a chance to win the British Open. His health has held up nicely, especially coming off his fourth back surgery. “There’s going to be certain days that I’m just not going to have the speed and the flexibility and the movement that I once did,” Woods said. “I’m 42 now, and I’ve had four back surgeries. So things are going to be different from day to day, and it’s just about managing it. Before, I didn’t really have any of those issues early in my career because I didn’t have a fixed point in my back. My knee used to hurt a lot, but I could play around that.”
Woods and McIlroy have won the same number of majors over the last four years – none. McIlroy has made progress in his own right, having gone some 18 months without a victory as he coped with a rib injury until he pulled away from Woods and the rest of the field to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational. McIlroy since then has played in the final group three times, including at the Masters. He was in contention on the back nine at the British Open. He still has only one victory this year and feels as though he should have won more. “In golf, you just have to be an eternal optimist,” McIlroy said. “You have to make the most of everything you have to see the positives, and just move on and forget about. And that’s what I’ve tried to do this year.” The rain interrupted a lot of schedules. The forecast is reasonable for the rest of the week, at least until Saturday,

leaving players just one more day to study Bellerive, with its tree-lined fairways and large green complexes. Players typically take the final day of practice to get in nine holes, or maybe do light work on their games. Woods no longer has that luxury. Time is running out, as it relates to preparing for the PGA Championship, and for a season that is being measured differently. He once said it couldn’t be a great year without winning a major. Winning tournaments still could make a good year. Now? “Just the fact that I’m playing the tour again, just for me to be able to have this opportunity again, it’s a dream come true,” he said. “I said this many times this year, I didn’t know if I could do this again, and lo and behold, here I am. So just coming back and being able to play at this level and compete ... I’ve had my share of chances to win this year, as well, and hopefully I’ll get it done this week.”
