Donnellon: Watson sees warming trend in Flyers' Cold War

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 12:37:32 GMT2017-02-23T12:37:32Z

FORTY-ONE YEARS ago, amid incendiary rhetoric between the two countries not unlike the rhetoric of today, an NHL referee reportedly walked into the Flyers' locker room at the Spectrum before an extremely important game of hockey against the Soviet Red Army team and crossed the line of any definition of sportsmanship.



Cooney: Even amid uneven season, Sixers creating a winning culture

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 03:18:06 GMT2017-02-23T03:18:06Z

AT THE END of practice Wednesday, 76ers center Joel Embiid and forward Dario Saric had a spirited one-on-one competition. There was a lot of trash talking, some serious physicality, and a big amount of mutual respect between the teammates.



Murphy: Bullpen key to speeding up games

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 02:37:36 GMT2017-02-23T02:37:36Z

CLEARWATER, Fla. – Want to make Major League Baseball more enjoyable to watch? Want to do it in a way that achieves the commissioner's long-held desire to quicken the pace of its games while also respecting the old-school sensibilities of die-hard traditionalists?



Murphy: Wilt Chamberlain crashed glass ceilings

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 23:21:27 GMT2017-02-22T23:21:27Z

WHOEVER WROTE the laws said the echoes never stop. Time is an infinite pond, the present a patch still rippling with the energy of earlier times. All of us are ripples, tiny pieces of string, the vibrating remnants of history's disruptions, reactions in a chain we trace back through stories and pictures and newspaper pages. Some of them whisper with the force of a butterfly's wings. Others resound.



Brookover: Aaron Nola's brother describes perfectionist

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 22:43:30 GMT2017-02-22T22:43:30Z

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Aaron Nola's fast rise from being the Phillies' first-round pick out of LSU in 2014 to becoming a member of their big-league starting rotation in just over a year was primarily about two things: command and control.



Sielski: Martelli among select few to appreciate Gonzaga's run

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 12:38:59 GMT2017-02-22T12:38:59Z

Phil Martelli gets this kind of phone call every few years, whenever a college basketball team closes in on an unbeaten regular season, people probing his mind for his thoughts about Wichita State in 2014 or Kentucky in 2015, asking him to relieve that en



Donnellon: Sixers' Brown excels at people skills

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:11:23 GMT2017-02-22T06:11:23Z

OF ALL THE wonderful possibilities Sam Hinkie could have imagined or anticipated when he took over running the Philadelphia 76ers in 2013, this is one that was likely not on that radar:



Jerardi: At Villanova, seniors are proven winners

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 06:10:52 GMT2017-02-22T06:10:52Z

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, Villanova's seniors will play their penultimate home game. Their 123 (and counting) wins over the four seasons are a number that is almost hard to believe.



Brookover: Marlins will miss Fernandez even more this year

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 02:08:04 GMT2017-02-22T02:08:04Z

JUPITER, Fla. - Not enough time has passed for the Miami Marlins to fully grieve the most devastating moment of the 2016 baseball season. In fact, no amount of time can erase the searing pain that engulfed the entire franchise, the city of Miami, the country of Cuba, and all of baseball last Sept. 25.



Jensen: Trust the process at City Six schools, too.

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 01:25:07 GMT2017-02-22T01:25:07Z

Last week's theme was how nobody in the City Six after Villanova has a shot at an at-large NCAA bid, and that's still obviously true, although Penn has been furiously digging out of its 0-6 Ivy hole. A 4-6 record now puts the Quakers in either the driver's seat or at least the front passenger's spot for the last opening at the four-team Ivy tournament. That spot could come down to Saturday's game at Columbia.



Murphy: Charlie Manuel thinks Matt Stairs has what it takes as Phillies' hitting coach

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 17:43:06 GMT2017-02-21T17:43:06Z

CLEARWATER, Fla. - It doesn't matter what you know if nobody will listen. The man who made this point on Monday afternoon has spent most of his life talking hitting with players, enough to know that the first part matters just as much as the second.



Kern: Villanova's Hart standing humbly in national spotlight

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 16:28:33 GMT2017-02-21T16:28:33Z

SO HOW DOES "Josh Hart, National Player of the Year" sound? Well, how about right up there with "Josh Hart, national champion."



Jensen: Philly hoops giant Claude Gross is remembered

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 13:58:43 GMT2017-02-21T13:58:43Z

Just before La Salle tipped off against St. Joseph's Saturday at Tom Gola Arena, a photo appeared on the screen. In memory of Claude Gross. A moment of silence.



Cooney: What the DeMarcus Cousins trade means to the Sixers

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 08:11:17 GMT2017-02-21T08:11:17Z

FOR THE PROPONENTS of 76ers management taking its time when it comes the inevitable trade of a big man or two, Monday was a good day.



Ford: Can NBA All-Star Game be saved?

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 23:23:29 GMT2017-02-20T23:23:29Z

A rather remarkable thing happened on Jan. 23, 1973, in old Chicago Stadium when the NBA held an All-Star Game and one of the teams failed to score 100 points. In fact, the West squad didn't even score 90 that day, losing 104-84 despite possessing a starting lineup of Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Sidney Wicks, Spencer Haywood, and Tiny Archibald.
