The Associated PressJanuary 17, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) -- Gary Talton's layup with 2 seconds to play gave Illinois-Chicago a 61-59 victory over Loyola of Chicago Wednesday night.

Talton, who led the Flames (11-7, 2-3 Horizon) with 14 points, also hit a 3-pointer with 2:16 to play to tie the game at 57.

Crittle had 12 points and seven rebounds for Illinois-Chicago, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

Christian Thomas scored 16 points and Averkamp finished with 14 for the Ramblers (10-7, 1-4), who have lost four in a row - three by either one or two points.

  • Chris Bosh and the Heat are in another debate over his health

    Chris Bosh saw a second straight season end early due to blood clots last February, but the story of his 2015-16 hardly ended there. While Bosh and the Miami Heat largely kept their disagreements out of the press, reports indicated that player and team were at odds over when he should return to the court. Bosh apparently wanted to play in the postseason (where the Heat took the Toronto Raptors to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals), but the team did not want to risk his health.

  • Chevrolet hits it out of the park with the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport

    ATLANTA—Well folks, they've done it. With the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, Chevrolet may well have built the best Corvette ever. That was our take-home message after a day spent driving the car at Atlanta Motorsports Park and on the sinuous nearby mountain roads. The concept behind the car is simple but effective: carry over all the suspension and aerodynamic goodies from the range-topping Z06 without the overheating problems that have beset that model's supercharged 650hp (484kW) engine. Oh, and it's a lot cheaper than the Z06 too—just $66,445 for the coupe. First, a little history: the Grand Sport name was first attached to the Corvette way back in 1962. The father of the Corvette, Zora Arkus-Duntov,

  • Ronaldo shows no sign of injury while hanging with Conor McGregor

    Cristiano Ronaldo may not be ready for the UEFA Super Cup, but he’s no longer limping around. To explore the Real Madrid superstar’s Instagram is to see Ronaldo, sometimes clothed, hanging out with celebrities. In the last couple weeks we’ve seen him with Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, and now his “bro” Conor McGregor. Wait, what? Yeah, Ronaldo is friends with the MMA star, and showed no ill form (and no brace of any kind) in several posed photos with McGregor. Although admittedly, McGregor’s IG game is a bit better: The Irish fighter posted a photo of himself sunning in his briefs with the caption, “I’m gonna get him on the Forbes list by next year. But I’m gonna get him on the tan by next week.”

And while he's tried to develop a reputation as a dependable NBA player following the outbreak of Linsanity for the last several years, similar questions are resurfacing as Lin goes through the motions with the Big Apple media as the newest member of the Brooklyn Nets. "I was really, really sad. I was sad the way everything went down, 'cause nothing happened the way I thought it was going to. I had wished that they had offered me a contract just in the beginning," Lin told Steve Serby of the New York Post in a recent Q&A of his Knickerbocker ending. Of course, the Knicks opted not to offer Lin a contract.

After Dwyane Wade left the Miami Heat, though, they decided to match. In an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman, Johnson sounded as shocked as everybody else about how his free agency played out: "I threw up a couple of times when I heard the number go out there. I was in shock. I even lost a little bit of weight, because just the anxiety of going through that whole process and not knowing where I was going to be," the Miami Heat guard said Monday during a team-sponsored water-safety event at

  • Blues GM: We may take ‘half a step back,’ while young veterans grow into leadership roles

    After a few early exits from the Stanley Cup playoffs, the St. Louis Blues were finally able to make a long run. Granted, they didn’t win the Stanley Cup or make it to the final, but they did manage to reach the Western Conference Final. Unfortunately for the Blues (and a lot of other teams), the NHL’s salary cap number didn’t increase very much and it forced the organization to part ways with a number of key veterans. Gone are captain David Backes, winger Troy Brouwer and goalie Brian Elliott. There could be even more change between now and the start of the year, as Kevin Shattenkirk could find himself elsewhere. Those key departures mean that the Blues will need some of their younger players

Under the change announced Saturday by the Hall’s board of directors, there will be separate committees for Today’s Game (1988-2016), Modern Baseball (1970-87), Golden Days (1950-69) and Early Baseball (1871-1949). Today’s Game and Modern Baseball will vote twice every five years, Golden Days once every five years and Early Baseball once every 10 years. “There are twice as many players in the Hall of Fame who debuted before 1950 as compared to afterward, and yet there are nearly double the eligible candidates after 1950 than prior,” Hall chair Jane Forbes Clark said in a statement.

Pearce reported the reason for being sent home—which the club declined to give—is due to his "attitude around the club's training camp," which leaves his future "uncertain." More to follow.

  • Raikkonen secures Driver of the Day honors in Hungary

    Kimi Raikkonen has captured the vote for F1’s Driver of the Day award, following his efforts to come from 14th to sixth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix, and with the fastest lap of the race in the process. The Ferrari driver missed Q3 for the first time all season but atoned nicely in the race at a track where passing is usually at a premium. Raikkonen’s battle with Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen was one of the race highlights, the Dutchman defending aggressively – perhaps too much so – against Raikkonen’s advances. But with no penalty assessed and no warning issued, Verstappen ended ahead in the battle for fifth. “I think it was very questionable, but it’s not my decision to decide,”

    The Yankees have traded Aroldis Chapman, who will soon be on his way to Chicago, ready to use that flame-throwing left arm to try to help propel the Cubs to a World Series title. In return, the Yankees will receive a quartet of players -- three prospects and Adam Warren. If that announcement also officially indicates whether the Yankees are in buy or sell mode, it will be the least interesting part of this deal. The Yankees probably will make another trade -- at least they should considering the state of their farm system and their place in the standings. But these are kind of humdrum affairs. The Chapman trade and the bounty the Yankees received have wider-ranging influences. By getting the

  • With arbitration hearing looming, Corrado and Leafs aren’t that far apart

    Frank Corrado should be used to waiting by now. He had to wait 28 games before the Leafs inserted him into the lineup for the first time last season and now he’s waiting for a new contract. There’s still a gap between the two sides, but it doesn’t appear to be very significant. Corrado and the Leafs will head to arbitration on July 26th unless the two sides can agree to a new deal before then. According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, The Leafs have two different offers on the table. One is a two-way contract, while the other is a one-way deal that would see him make less money if he sticks in the NHL. Corrado is looking for a one-way deal worth $900,000. Toronto scooped Corrado up off waivers

In November it was reported he had interest in signing with the 76ers and figured he could get "a [very lucrative] contract." Then when free agency began at the beginning of the month, the Oklahoman‘s Anthony Slater reported that Waiters could get a $12 million to $16 million per year contract. It's likely why Waiters never accepted the qualifying offer from the Thunder that would have guaranteed him $6.8 million for this season.

    Claudio Ranieri hasn’t lost his way with words over the summer. The Leicester City boss who famously refused to admit his team was in a title race for most of the Premier League season is keeping it cool in the wake of N'Golo Kante signing for Chelsea. Simply put, Ranieri says everything’s going to be fine. From Sky Sports: “Last season we lost Esteban Cambiasso and everybody was crying,” Ranieri said, after his side drew 1-1 with Celtic in a pre-season friendly. “Now we are crying because we lost Kante. Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going.” Kante was probably the most important part of Leicester’s title capture last season, but Ranieri’s system was also critical. The follow-up
