Soccer-Germany gearing up to handle pressure in group opener against Japan

By Karolos Grohmann

DOHA (Reuters) - Germany go into their World Cup Group E opener against Japan on Wednesday knowing that this one game could potentially make or break their tournament hopes.

With 2010 world champions Spain awaiting next, the Germans cannot afford any slip-up against the Japanese and risk a potential early exit again.

The four-times champions have arrived in Qatar a new team since their 2018 World Cup first round shock elimination. They have since changed their coach, a number of players and even dropped their official monicker 'Die Mannschaft'.

Those four years since the Russian debacle - their earliest World Cup exit in more than 80 years - have been far from successful, with the Germans relegated from the Nations League in 2018 before rule changes kept them alive in the competition, and then crashing out of the Euro at the Round of 16 last year.

Russell Wilson’s fade sample with Broncos is one among NFL’s huge mysteries

The most important transfer of the NFL offseason has morphed into the league’s largest thriller.

It is a threwdunnit. The place did you go, Russell Wilson?

This isn’t what the Denver Broncos had been anticipating once they mortgaged their future for Seattle’s nine-time Professional Bowl quarterback.

Seems, Wilson is so elusive, even his personal group cannot discover him.

The Broncos got here into Monday evening’s sport towards the chargers averaging simply 15 factors per sport. The excellent news is that they surpassed that by some extent, shedding in additional time, 19-16.

It was an enormous division victory for the Chargers, who’ve received three in a row and are in a four-way tie for the AFC’s longest successful streak. The one time they led all evening was on the ultimate play, when Dustin Hopkins’ game-winning kick sailed by the uprights.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge mashes 62nd homer to break AL single-season record

ARLINGTON — Aaron Judge smiled and exhaled, running around the bases as the ball just sailed over the left-field fence. It had been almost a week since the Yankees slugger had looked so relaxed, so happy. It had been six days since Judge had hit his last home run. It took just three pitches into the nightcap of a split doubleheader on Wednesday night when Judge slammed a slider off Rangers right-hander Jesus Tinoco for his record-setting 62nd home run of the season.

In the 161st game of the 2022 season, Judge broke the American League single-season home run record of 61, set by Yankee Roger Maris 61 years ago. He stands alone atop the AL and is just  the fourth man in baseball history to hit 62 home runs in a season and has the seventh most all-time.

Tyrese Maxey scores playoff career-high 38 points in 76ers win

Former Kentucky standout Tyrese Maxey made history tonight in Philadelphia. Making his playoff starting debut Saturday evening for the 76ers, the standout guard finished with 38 points on 14-21 shooting and 5-8 from three in a 131-111 win over Toronto.

The second-year guard scored 21 points on 7-8 shooting in the third quarter alone to help solidify the victory.

Just 21 years old, Maxey became the youngest 76er to drop 35-plus points in the playoffs. The only players in NBA history younger than Maxey to score at least 38 points in a playoff game? LeBron James and Magic Johnson. That’s it. That’s the list.

To make things even more interesting, the former Wildcat is now the first player age 21 years or younger to score 38-plus points on at least 66% shooting in an NBA playoff game.

“Honestly, I just went out there and tried my best to help my team,” Maxey said after the win. “That’s what I do every night.”

Utah Can’t Keep Up With No. 6 Wildcats, Lose Fifth in a Row


The University of Utah men’s basketball team dropped a road matchup with the Arizona Wildcats on Saturday evening. Utah competed with the No. 6 ranked team in the nation for much of the night, but ultimately ran out of gas in the second half to fall to 1-6 in conference play. They’re 8-9 on the season, the first time they’ve been below .500 overall.

Utah kept pace with the Wildcats throughout the first half, keeping a lead until right before halftime. Arizona looked sloppy without point guard Kerr Kriisa, who missed the game. The Utes controlled the pace of the game, slowing down the Wildcats offense and playing heavily in the halfcourt. Arizona sped it up to close the half, and that’s also how their lead ballooned in the second.
