Sports Morning Headlines-Wednesday, 02/23/11

News from around the Texas Sports Scene for Wednesday, February 23, 2011.

Looking for Morey? He's working hard - Daryl Morey was throwing offers at the Nuggets until the last hours before Carmelo Anthony was traded to the Knicks on Monday. Now what's left for the Rockets?  "We've got to get something done, or it's not good," Morey said. "If I'm a fan, I'm waiting for us to get someone."  If you pumped the Rockets' general manager full of truth serum, he'd tell you his offer of players, cash and draft picks for Anthony was better than the one the Nuggets took from the Knicks.   READ MORE

Patterson becomes Rockets’ go-to guy - Rookie plays central role late in win over Pistons.  With barely three minutes left and the Rockets holding the shakiest of three-point leads, Kyle Lowry felt like dancing.  The Rockets have booted the final minutes of close games this season, and the news has been mostly bad in The Palace of Auburn Hills, where they had lost eight of their previous nine visits.  Lowry, however, jumped, swirled and swayed through the Cha-Cha Slide, as if there was no way the Rockets could do anything but easily close out the Detroit Pistons.  He was right. Patrick Patterson gave the Rockets a phenomenal fourth quarter, and they rolled through the final minutes, surging past the Pistons 108-100 on Tuesday night.   READ MORE

Terry said the Mavs will catch the Spurs - Jason Terry has a message for the San Antonio Spurs.  "We’re going to catch them sooner or later,'' the Dallas Mavericks guard said. "Whether it’s now or in the playoffs.  "We’d rather it be in the playoffs in the Western (Conference) Finals or what have you. But we’re going to catch them.''  The Mavs (40-16) trail the Spurs (46-10) by six games for the top seed in the West with 26 games left.   READ MORE

Dallas Mavericks Trade Rumors: Devin Harris "Likely" To Return to Town - According to Marc Stein from ESPN, Devin Harris will likely be traded to Dallas or Portland.  Both teams are interested in Harris and can offer pieces the Nets might be interested in.  Portland has been trying to acquire Harris in a trade involving their own point guard, Andre Miller.  Also, Greg Oden or Joel Przybilla might be included in the deal in some way.  Although Harris is a former all-star and young player, it is hard to imagine if the change would be something the team could benefit from quickly.  LaMarcus Aldridge has blossomed this season next to Miller, and they currently hold the fifth spot in the packed Western Conference.  The leadership Miller brings to the table might be just what the team needs to stay afloat, regardless of his age.   READ MORE

Spurs’ Parker happy he avoided Melo’s drama - Though unencumbered by official duties at this year’s NBA All-Star Game, Spurs point guard Tony Parker spent his break in Los Angeles anyway, soaking up sun, hanging out with friends and family and squeezing in a couple of promotional events.  His All-Star break, quite literally, was a day at the beach.  Carmelo Anthony, meanwhile, spent his break amid a media-fueled maelstrom, with trade winds howling and his future uncertain right up until Monday’s blockbuster swap from Denver to New York.  “I can only imagine the headache it was for Carmelo,” Parker said Tuesday.   READ MORE

ProjectSpurs:  Spurs news and notes: Spurs on the stretch run, Splitter update, and more - • It's the final 26 games of the San Antonio Spurs season and the playoffs are fast approaching. What do the Spurs have to say about the stretch run? Check it out.  • Our good buddy John Karalis at Reds Army sent me an email about the odds is currently giving the Spurs to win the NBA title this season. I can understand the Celtics over the Spurs but the Heat, and Lakers have a better shot over the Spurs at a title? Is it me or are the Spurs totally not getting any respect from Bodog?   READ MORE



Astros' Abad out of mix for No. 5 starter's spot - Abad won't start.  Even with the lefty's eye-opening winter mostly as a starter in the Dominican Republic, Fernando Abad won't be a big league starter yet. General manager Ed Wade said that after discussions with his staff, the Astros will leave Abad out of the mix for the No. 5 starter's spot — a role they started considering for him after he went 3-0 with a 2.38 ERA for Toros del Este of the Dominican Winter League.  "In the meetings that we've had, we think that the role that he's capable of playing in the bullpen as a key lefty for us probably takes precedent at this point in his career," Wade said. "That doesn't mean that at some point he isn't going to be a successful starter, but for the time being, we're going to focus on him as a reliever."   READ MORE

A gamble worth taking - On a tight budget but your talent pool is shallow? The Astros have sought to solve the dilemma by becoming a frequent shopper on the waiver wire.  To use a cliché and call baseball’s waiver wire a “bargain basement” is probably a disservice to those clothing items that are simply out of season or last year’s models.  At an operating price of $20,000 — roughly one-seventh or one-eighth the price of a slotted fifth-round draft pick — the waiver wire is more like baseball’s “as is” section.  Since the beginning of Ed Wade’s tenure as general manager, the Astros have been active snoopers on these shelves. Heading into the fourth spring training of Wade’s administration, the club has definitely found some things that fit.  The Astros brought to spring training seven players from the 40-man roster who were originally acquired off waivers. An eighth waiver pickup is a non-roster invitee.   READ MORE

As Jon Daniels has grown, so have the Texas Rangers - They called him Jon Boy. And Boy Wonder.  He didn't take it as a compliment, and I don't think any was meant.  At the tenderfoot age of 28 years and 41 days, nevertheless, Jon Daniels was handed the keys to the general manager's office of the Texas Rangers, and some of us winced.  Daniels was closer in age to the bat boy than to the man he was replacing, and that clearly bothered some people.  In my case, I was one of the ones still pining for the days of Doug Melvin, and I wondered how a guy with such a brief résumé would ever measure up.  But more than five years have passed since that October 2005 day when Daniels officially succeeded John Hart.   READ MORE

Rangers seek long reliever - The Rangers may have a consolation prize for one pitcher who doesn't win a spot in the rotation: long reliever/spot starter.  It's the role that Dustin Nippert left behind when the Rangers decided not to offer him a contract. The role remains vacant, but needs to be filled.  "I would imagine we need some length," manager Ron Washington said. "I can't have a bullpen of sprinters. We need some guys who can go the distance."    READ MORE



2011 NFL Combine: 10 Prospects Dallas Cowboys Fans Must Watch - With the National Football League’s annual combine just two days away, NFL fans are salivating to see their favorite prospects jump high, light weights and run fast. Teams will travel to Indianapolis to grade these players on how quickly they can change directions and how explosive a player can be off the ball.  The Dallas Cowboys have a few needs that need addressing like cornerback, safety, offensive lineman, linebacker and a few more spots.  Since Jerry and his crew are heading up to Indy this week to take a look at the college talent, allow me to tell you about 10 players you should watch for this week at the NFL combine.   READ MORE

Latest from Cowboys Land with CBA about to expire - Welcome to the off-season. Here we are a week and a half away from the end of the CBA and there has been no news on the negotiations. What we do know is that the owners and players association have been meeting with federal mediator George Cohen the last few day, but have all agreed on a code of silence as far as what has been happening behind those close doors.  While the negotiations are on going for a new CBA, things with the Cowboys coaching staff have been finalized. New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has finally spoken about his new position and has come off saying all the right things from what I’ve heard.   READ MORE

Free Agent File: Chargers FS Eric Weddle - As bad as the Texans cornerback play was in 2010, and my god it was bad, the safety play may have been worse. I don’t have any stats to back that up, but you saw the same games I did. Are we going to fight over who was worse? I didn’t think so.  Unless something very surprising happens, the Texans figure to have two new starting safeties in 2011. After an abysmal season, Eugene Wilson was cut last week and Bernard Pollard isn’t coming back. I had already mentioned that I thought he was a safe bet to be gone, and not long ago he even said on the radio (without saying it) that he doesn’t expect to be back.   READ MORE

2011 NFL Draft: Grading the Houston Texans Draft History - With April right around the corner, many people are starting to gear up for the NFL draft.  After a disappointing 2010 season, in which experts predicted the Houston Texans to make the playoffs for the first time in their young history, Texans fans turn their attention to the draft with hope that things will turn around.  The Texans have made some questionable draft-day decisions, but, in recent years, have made some solid choices that have led to great optimism for the franchise.  We will take a look back and I will grade each year of the Houston Texans previous nine NFL drafts, with an emphasis on the first round selection.   READ MORE

WBB Looks to Rebound Against Kansas State - Lady Bears return home to the Ferrell Center where it is 17-0 this season.  THE MATCHUP - The third-ranked Baylor Lady Bears, 24-2 overall and 11-1 in Big 12 action, seek to keep a hold on the top spot in the Big 12 standings as they host Kansas State on Wednesday. The Wildcats enter the game riding a two-game win streak after posting wins over Colorado (78-51) in Manhattan and at Nebraska (69-64), while Baylor looks to bounce back from Saturday's loss at Texas Tech which snapped its 21-game win streak. Baylor is 17-0 at home this season.   READ MORE

No. 16 Baseball Drops 2-0 Pitchers' Duel to No. 4 TCU - Bears shut out at home for first time since 2006.  Baylor's 16th-ranked baseball team got its strongest pitching performance of the year but it wasn't enough as the Bears offense managed just two hits in a 2-0 loss to No. 4 TCU on Tuesday afternoon at Baylor Ballpark.  Taylor Featherston's two-run single in the top of the fourth was the only run-scoring play in the game, as Andrew Mitchell and Stefan Crichton combined to hold Baylor scoreless in a home game for the first time since a 7-0 loss to McNeese State on April 26, 2006.   READ MORE

Jordan Hamilton is clearly the best player in the Big 12 - It'd be wrong to say that Jordan Hamilton has been overlooked in this jewel of a basketball season, but it wouldn't be a stretch to suggest that the Texas sophomore hasn't completely gotten his due either.  And he's due plenty.  If you've paid any attention to this 24-4 basketball team, you'd know Texas is anything but a one-man team. But if you were starting a team, you wouldn't go wrong picking the one man who has done the most to help put this club on the doorstep of greatness.  Hamilton is clearly the best player in the Big 12 and should be validated as such as the league's Player of the Year. Maybe even the consensus choice.  He's been that good, that reliable, that valuable to a team that could be knocking on the Final Four door in a month.  Just don't leave the choice to him.   READ MORE

A&M women's basketball team rolls past Texas Tech - Texas Tech got Texas A&M's attention by beating top-ranked Baylor, and the Aggies made the Lady Raiders as miserable Tuesday night as the Lady Bears were Saturday in Lubbock.  Danielle Adams and Tyra White combined for 50 points to lead fifth-ranked A&M to an 84-60 victory over Texas Tech in Big 12 action at Reed Arena before an announced crowd of 5,557.  A&M (23-3, 11-2) pulled within a half game of Baylor (24-2, 11-1), which will play Kansas State on Wednesday. Texas Tech (19-8, 6-7) had a three-game winning streak snapped, which also included a victory over 20th-ranked Iowa State.   READ MORE

A&M's Loubeau turning moves into points - David Loubeau arrived at Texas A&M with a wide array of offensive skills.  From the time he stepped onto the floor at Reed Arena in the fall of 2008 it was obvious he had the low post game to make opponents respect his abilities. Loubeau has converted those moves into double-digit points on occasion over his first two-and-half seasons at A&M -- but never consistently, particularly against top-notch competition.  If the last few weeks are any indication, that is beginning to change.   READ MORE

Lady Raiders Defeated by No. 5 Aggies, 84-60 - Chynna Brown had 15 points and Teena Wickett added 11.  Texas Tech coach Kristy Curry is convinced there's something about her team that brings out the best in Texas A&M's Danielle Adams.  "We seem to really struggle matchup-wise against her," Curry said. "Danielle always seems to have a good night (against us)."  Adams scored 20 of her 30 points in the first half and had a career-high-tying 13 rebounds to lead No. 5 Texas A&M to an 84-60 win over Texas Tech on Tuesday night. The senior has scored 56 points in A&M's two meetings with the Lady Raiders this season and notched her only career triple-double against them last season.  She isn't sure why she has had so much success against Texas Tech.   READ MORE

Red Raiders Back in Action on Wednesday - Texas Tech vs. Colorado is the final conference game between the two teams.  After their road win at Baylor on Saturday, the Texas Tech Red Raiders (12-15) host the Colorado Buffaloes (16-11) on Wednesday evening. The 6:30 p.m. game will be the last conference contest between the two teams with Colorado moving to the Pac-12 next season.  Brian Jensen will call the play-by-play and John Harris will provide the game analysis from the United Spirit Arena. The game will air on the Texas Tech Television Network (TTSN), ESPN Full Court, and ESPN   READ MORE

Cougar baseball now 4-0 (w/video); basketball falls to Memphis - The Houston Cougars baseball team continued its strong start with a 10-3 win over Stephen F. Austin on Tuesday before 1,069 at Cougar Field.  UH got another strong effort from its starting pitching, this time coming courtesy of true freshman Chase Wellbrock. Wellbrock went six innings, allowing just two runs on five hits and striking out six.   READ MORE

Men's Basketball Drops 69-58 Decision at Memphis - Freshman forward Alandise Harris did a little of everything Tuesday night, leading the Cougars in points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots and steals during a 69-58 loss to Conference USA-rival Memphis at FedExForum.  The Little Rock, Ark., native topped the Cougars with 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and three steals, but the Tigers used a late rally in the final three minutes to ice the win against Houston.  Although they trailed for much of the second half, the Cougars staged a furious rally midway through the second half and pulled to within 57-55 when sophomore forward Kirk Van Slyke converted a pair of free throws.   READ MORE

Lamar Defeats Rice Baseball Team 12-7 Tuesday Night - Owls Next Play Wednesday Evening At Texas St.; Return Home To Host USC.  The Lamar baseball team collected for 23 hits, including seven for extra-bases, on the way to a 12-7 win Tuesday evening (Feb. 22) at Rice's Reckling Park in Houston.   READ MORE

Bailiff Formally Announces Additions to Coaching Staff - Jackson, Lynch and Thurmond round out Rice staff.  Rice head football coach David Bailiff formally announced on Tuesday that Derrick Jackson, Billy Lynch and Chris Thurmond have joined his coaching staff. Jackson will coach the Owls defensive linemen, Lynch the wide receivers and Thurmond the cornerbacks.  "These are three fine football coaches who will be great additions to our staff," Bailiff said. "They are coaches who can come in and help us right away to build on the momentum we build that we had at the end of last season."  Jackson brings 10 years of experience to Rice coaching defensive linemen, as well as one season at Syracuse as the co-defensive coordinator. While at Syracuse, he oversaw the development of Walter Jones into an NFL draft pick. A four-year starter at safety at Duke before graduating in 1993, Jackson spent six years working in the private sector before joining the coaching ranks in 1999 at the University of West Georgia. He coached the defensive line at Army (2001-02), Eastern Illinois (2003-04), Northern Illinois (2005); Michigan State (2006); Syracuse (2007-09) and Akron (2010).   READ MORE

TCU Basketball Teases Us Again - If you were ever to create a how-to video on playing basketball, burn the video of TCU-Utah right away. That was horrendous. But before I give my opinions on this game, I need to clarify something.  My buddy Tim asked me on Saturday if I was going to the BYU game or staying for the baseball game. When I told him I was remaining for what would become a combined one-hit masterpiece, he queried me on my recent writings in a confused manner. He said you keep telling me I am supposed to trust this team and that they are improving. Frankly, it was a fair point because that was what I most recently wrote.   READ MORE

Men’s Hoops Facing Crucial SBC West Foe Thursday - Needing a win to keep its hopes of a bye in the opening round of Sun Belt Tournament, North Texas heads to Jonesboro to face Arkansas State.  Tip off from the Convocation Center is slated for 7 p.m. and can be heard on the Mean Green Radio Network.  Arkansas State holds a slim 18-15 margin in the all-time series with North Texas after the Mean Green took a lopsided 83-64 win in Jan. NT has won seven of the last nine matchups with ASU dating back to the 2007 Sun Belt Championship game. Since joining the Sun Belt in 2000 NT is 4-2 in ASU's Convocation Center.   READ MORE

Holmen out for the season - I hate to bring more bad news, but Jacob Holmen broke his right hand and is out for the season. He has his index finger in a splint.  UNT is working out with eight guys at practice right now.  UNT has now lost Alzee Williams to a knee injury before the season, Cam Spencer to a knee injury before the season and walk-on Tyler Hall to a broken leg.  Josh White and Kedrick Hogans have been hurt all year. They have played, but they have had to battle injuries. Neither one of those guys is working out this afternoon.   READ MORE

Stars see positives, but no points - The Dallas Stars did a lot of good things Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils at American Airlines Center. But they couldn’t score and the Devils found a way to get one goal and it added up to a 1-0 loss for the Stars, their fifth straight and ninth in the last ten games.  Despite the disappointing result – which left them in 11th place in the very tight Western Conference standings – the Stars were happy with the effort.  “We did so many things we wanted to do,” said Stars coach Marc Crawford. “We didn’t give them any outnumbered chances. We were good on the forecheck, we created loose pucks, we had goal mouth opportunities with net drive. We just couldn’t put the puck in the net.”    READ MORE

Neal and Niskanen traded. - After being indirectly insulted all day Monday by all the Dallas Stars bloggers/tweeters who tend to accuse anybody that disagrees with them of being an idiot, or worse, somebody that doesn’t know anything about hockey, I think I’ve settled on an opinion about the latest trade.  Joe Nieuwendyk traded James Neal and Matt Niskanen to Pittsburgh for Alex Goligowski.  First, I’ll say that I hate trades. I never like to see people traded. I almost always get over it, though. I still wish Philippe Boucher were still around, but most other trades I’ve learned to live with.   READ MORE

Observations from a 1-0 loss - That one was tough to watch on a couple of levels.  One, the game was a chess match. Two, the Stars probably deserved a better fate.  Dallas pushed that game to the edge, and then fell off when a broken stick led to a bouncing puck, which led to a ``lucky'' goal and a 1-0 loss. The Devils, who are cruising, won their eighth straight and move to an amazing 16-1-2 in their last 19 games. The Stars, who are dying, lost their fifth straight and fall to 2-10-1 in the last 13 games.  It hardly looked like the hottest team in the league beating the coldest team, but that's what it was. A hot team caught a break. A cold team didn't.   READ MORE
