KWBG Sports for January 17th

Posted on 17 January 2014 by KWBG

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Elliott Eliason had 12 points and 13 rebounds to help Minnesota muscle past 11th-ranked Ohio State for a 63-53 victory last night that stuck the Buckeyes with their third straight loss. The 14-4 Golden Gophers gave first-year Richard Pitino (pih-TEE’-noh) his first signature win.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Serena Williams is now the winningest women ever at the Australian Open. The five-time Australian Open champion notched her 61st career victory Down Under, beating Daniela Hantuchova (han-TOO’-koh-vuh) 6-2, 6-2 on another steamy day at Melbourne Park.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady was back at practice yesterday after missing Wednesday’s workout due to illness and says he’s ready to go in Sunday’s AFC championship against Denver. The 14-year veteran has been nursing a cold for a while, but says it’s no big deal.

NEW YORK (AP) — Tampa Bay left-hander David Price got a big deal, a $14 million, one-year contract yesterday. But that will be just a small fraction of the mega-contract Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers are likely to finalize today as the Dodgers are expected to officially announce that southpaw’s seven-year, $210 million-dollar deal.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Alex Rodriguez says his season-long suspension could be a benefit, allowing him to rest and return to the Yankees for the final three years of his contract. A-Rod made his comments during a promotional appearance in Mexico City, but declined to discuss specifics of his full-year suspension for violating baseball’s drug agreement.
