happens to be from las vegas is taking his skills to oregon. the young man made his intentions known with a slick video... where he dribbled around las vegas and at the end of of the minute long promo reel who made a special announcement. troy brown/centennial high: "take my game to the next level...
((chris maathuis)) he choose oregon over kansas, ohio state, unlv and georgetown. congrats to troy brown who is a star at centennial high.. meanwhile the rebels are getting ready for their season opener this friday at the thomas and mack. they'll meet south alabama at 7 pm... it'll be the third time the two schools have played each other, e the unlv women's soccer team had a record breaking season in wins, goals and assists. now they they get rewarded for their efforts by playing in the touney. at today's ncaa selection show, the rebels found out they'll meet 4th seed byu on friday in provo. ((chris maathuis)) if you ask the fans in oakland, if the raiders move to las vegas is legit, they'll tell ya its all a mirage. that's its not going to happen. fans in oakland are doing all they can to voice their displeasure with mark davis saying he's going to move his team to las vegas.
bought a banner that read... "vegas, if you build it we won't come." raider fans: "i'm beyond mad, you not going to take an identity badge away from us and think we're just going to go away quietly.. i feel like we're betrayed.. its like waiting for the election on tuesday.. waiting for the other shoe to drop and for mark davis to say something... it doesn't make any sense to go to las vegas the fan base isn't in las vegas, the fan base is here... we're facing our first winning season in 10 years and yet we're facing our raiders and our owner trying to relocate out team and is there a better monday night team than seattle... they enter tonight's game at home with buffalo riding a 10 game monday night winning streak. seattle used the arm of quarterback russell wilson, but the seahawks needed just one hand from tight end jimmy graham... he used one had to make two terrific catches.. both in the first half. same right hand to cradle both t-d toss and the seahawks beat the bills 31-25..
((chris maathuis)) in front of 16 thousand fans manny pacquiao put on an impressive show over the weekend winning back the wbc welterweight belt. now he's attention shifts back to the philippines where he's a senator for his country. but before he left... he talked about the fight and the future. and part of that future is opening the door for a rematch with floyd mayweather. manny knows he disappointed a ton of fans in what was supposed to be the fight of the century. so he wants to make it right. manny pacquiao/champion: "i believe if there is a rematch i want to make sure the fan it... i will give all i can to get back the trust of the fans, if there's a rematch, i'm going to make sure the fans will not be disappointed." ((chris maathuis))
three scorecards.. inexplicably one judge had it a one round fight... manny winning by one round. maybe they'll discuss that at the nevada athletic commission meeting on thursday. ufc interim light heavyweight champion jon jones will serve a doping ban until next july after an arbitration panel denied his appeal of a positive test. jones was pulled from ufc 200 in july shortly after news about the positive drug test. the u.s. anti-doping agency , which handles ufc testing, declared jones ineligible. he took theas and that panel delivered the maximum one-year suspension. jones will be eligible to fight next july.
