Sooners QB, A s pick Kyler Murray declares for NFL draft

By Cliff Brunt, Associated Press Kyler Murray, the first-round Major League Baseball draft pick and Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterback, declared himself eligible for the NFL draft on Monday. Murray announced his decision in a tweet, ending his brief and storied college career. What's next for the Murray is not yet known. I have declared for the NFL Draft. — Kyler Murray (@TheKylerMurray) January 14, 2019 The Oakland Athletics made the speedy outfielder the ninth overall selection last June and agreed to $4.66 million signing bonus. The A's agreed to let him continue playing football, and he made the most of it by winning the Heisman in his only season as a starter for the Sooners. He passed for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns and ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history. As Murray dominated, his draft stock improved. Jim Callis, a senior writer on MLB.com, said the A's couldn't have foreseen that Murray would be a potential first-round NFL draft pick because of his size. Listed at 5-10 and 195 pounds, Murray would be a small quarterback in the NFL by any standard. "The primary risk was, what if he gets hurt on the football field?" Callis said, recalling his conversations with scouts before the season. "I don't think anybody was saying he could be an NFL first-round pick." Once the NFL emerged as a potential option for Murray, the A's took action. Representatives of the A's and Major League Baseball met Sunday with Murray, and the possibility existed that Oakland could offer more money by putting him on the 40-man major league roster. Even with the A's efforts, Murray would have a shot at a bigger payday sooner in football and he wouldn't have to go to the minor leagues. Callis and other observers say it is very unlikely Murray will be able to play both sports because he's a quarterback. Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders pulled it off, but Jackson was an outfielder and a running back and Sanders was an outfielder and cornerback. "This isn't Bo Jackson showing up and here, we'll pitch you the ball and you outrun everybody, or Deion Sanders helicoptering in and his great speed, coverage skills," Callis said. "When you're a quarterback, you have to put in hours and hours of study running an offense. ... You can't play both sports when you're a quarterback. I think if he wants to play quarterback, which appears to be his greatest love, there can't be any question that he's 100 percent football." Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November that if anyone could play both sports, it's Murray. "I don't want to put it past him," Riley said. " A lot of people would say he can't do what he's done right now — how well he performed for our baseball group here this spring, and how well he's played here for us. So there's certainly some different dynamics with it. Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys. But he athletically is so gifted and can transition between the two." The NFL scouting combine is in late February and early March and could intersect with his spring training — major league camp starts in mid-February and minor league camp begins in early March. If Murray wanted to participate in the combine, the A's would need to allow it and it would need to be reflected on his contract. Murray's road to his NFL draft choice was a winding one from his prep days in suburban Dallas. After a disappointing freshman season in football at Texas A&M in 2015, he transferred to Oklahoma. He sat out a year because of transfer rules, then was the backup during Baker Mayfield's Heisman-winning 2017 season. Murray then had an impressive enough baseball season in 2018 to draw the A's attention. Callis said Murray is somewhat like a faster version of outfielder Andrew McCutchen. After he was drafted, Murray took batting practice at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. A's manager Bob Melvin, executive Billy Beane and general manager David Forst closely followed Oklahoma football this season as the Sooners reached the College Football Playoff, losing to Alabama in a semifinal. As recently as last month, the A's said they expected Murray to pursue baseball. Murray had also said multiple times throughout the football season that he plans to focus strictly on baseball after this season......»»

Balanced Bullpups sweep Sotto-led Eaglets in UAAP Jrs. eliminations

STANDINGS NU 7-1 FEU-Diliman 6-2 Ateneo 5-3 Adamson 5-3 UST 4-4 DLSZ 3-5 UE 1-7 UPIS 1-7 Yet again, Carl Tamayo came up big for Nazareth School of National University in its heavyweight bout against Ateneo de Manila High School in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Tamayo’s basket and bonus quelled the Blue Eaglets’ late uprising and carried the Bullpups to a hard fought 78-71 decision on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The versatile big man only had seven points to go along with nine rebounds, but it was his offensive board and ensuing short stab that re-increased his team’s slim one-point margin into a 73-69 lead. “Good thing he converted it kasi he was in and out kanina,” head coach Goldwin Monteverde said post-game. Still, the defending champions had 46.3 ticks to go and Forthsky Padrigao’s scoop shot was able to pull them within two points. It was at that point, however, that Ernest Felicilda’s steady hands from the line joined forces with a stout defense to put the game away for NU. Felicilda wound up with 14 points, four coming from the free throw line in the last 27 seconds, on top of six assists, five rebounds, and four steals. Gerry Abadiano and Terrence Fortea also added 16 points apiece as the Bullpups started the second round by downing Ateneo – the same story from how they finished the first round. Now at 7-1, they have also widened the distance between them and now second-running Far Eastern University-Diliman. Nonetheless, coach Gold said they haven’t won anything just yet. “It’s just part of the war. We still have six games to go in the eliminations and ang importante ngayon, our next game,” he said. Sotto paced the Blue Eaglets with 24 points, 18 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks. He was well-defended in the endgame, however, and saw his side fall to their rivals for the second straight time. In the day’s other game, the University of the Philippines Integrated School finally got a taste of victory after downing De La Salle Zobel, 64-56. Rookie Allen Torres scored 22 points, including a pair of booming threes inside the last five minutes, while graduating guard Polo Labao did it all with 18 markers, nine rebounds, six assists, and five steals to make sure the Junior Maroons improved to 1-7. On the other hand, the Junior Archers dropped to 3-5 following the shock loss.

Heat hang on late, top Grizzlies 112-108

Associated Press MIAMI (AP) — Justise Winslow scored 26 points, Dwyane Wade had a huge blocked shot in the final seconds and the Miami Heat beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-108 on Saturday night. Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson each scored 14 for Miami, which reached the midpoint of the season at 21-20. Bam Adebayo and Derrick Jones Jr. scored 11 apiece for the Heat and Wade had 10, but arguably the two biggest plays of his night came in the final 4 seconds. Wade blocked a potentially game-tying layup by Shelvin Mack, then won a jump ball to help the Heat escape. JaMychal Green scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who went 0-2 this season against Miami — losing the two games by a total of seven points. Mike Conley scored 22 and Marc Gasol had 15. Conley made a 65-footer as time expired, though it was waved off and would have been irrelevant anyway. No lead was safe: Memphis blew a pair of double-digit leads in the first half, and Miami was up by 13 midway through the third. Conley's 3-pointer with 6:31 left knotted the game at 99, ending a 12-minute stretch where the Grizzlies outscored the Heat 32-19. It was tied twice more after that as well, but the Grizzles never reclaimed the lead. Conley tried a runner for the lead with 56 seconds left, and Gasol had a wide-open 3-point try as the shot clock was running down with 32 seconds remaining. Both missed — Conley's bounced off and Gasol's missed everything, going wide left. With Miami up one, Wade missed a jumper with 14 seconds left and Richardson grabbed the rebound for Miami before getting fouled. He made one of two free throws, and Memphis called time with 9 seconds left. Mack tried to drive on Wade, only to get his shot blocked and a jump ball was called. Wade won the tap to Richardson, who made a pair of free throws with 1.1 seconds left. TIP-INS Grizzlies: Memphis opened on a 19-7 run, then had a 17-4 run later in the half — yet still went into the break down 63-61. ... It was the first game at Miami for Joakim Noah since Dec. 6, 2016. ... As the Grizzlies were playing in Miami, Justin Timberlake tweeted out a video showing him making half-court shots on their practice court in Memphis. He had a concert in their building Saturday night. ... Mack and Jaren Jackson each had 13 points for Memphis. Heat: It was kids' day at the Heat game, and coach Erik Spoelstra got into the act by holding his 9-month-old son Santiago as he stood for the national anthem. ... Hassan Whiteside missed the game with an illness. ... The game was a rare 5 p.m. home tip, just the second in a regular-season contest for Miami since Christmas 2014. ... The Heat made 15 3-pointers, giving them 33 in their last two games — the best two-game run from deep this season. Their previous best was 28 3s in a two-game span, done on six occasions. DAUNTING SCHEDULE Miami plays only four home games in the next six weeks — and three of those are in a four-day span between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2. After that, the next Heat home game is Feb. 23. In all, 12 of Miami's next 16 are on the road and 11 of those games are against likely playoff teams. TURKEY TURNAROUND At Thanksgiving, Memphis was 12-5 and leading the Western Conference. The Grizzlies are 7-18 since, and have fallen to 14th in the West. UP NEXT Grizzlies: Visit Houston on Monday. Both of Memphis' games against Miami this season were followed by one with the Rockets. Heat: Visit Milwaukee on Tuesday. It's the start of a four-game trip for the Heat, who are 10-8 on the road this season......»»
