Quick Hits


Lyndon Squirts Split 2 Weekend Games

LYNDON CENTER -- The Lyndon Squirts played two games last weekend at Fenton Chester Arena, winning Sunday to make up for a Saturday loss.

On Saturday the Squirts faced Harwood. Lyndon scored first on a Cam Gawtkin goal, but Harwood tallied three goals before the first period was over.

Lyndon's Daegan Ignjatovic scored in the second along with Austin Kapourkranidis assited by Dylan Miller. Harwood put three more points on the board in the second period also. In the third period Lyndon was scoreless with Harwood scoring one more time, making the final score 7-3 for the visitors.

On Sunday Lyndon looked to redeem itself against PVA. In the first period Kapourkranidis scored with an assist from Miller. Jacob Montgomery put two more points on the board with an assist from Jeremy Reardon on both goals, and an assist from Ingjatovic.

PVA went scoreless in the first period, but scored three times in the second. Reardon scored for the Squirts, making it 4-3 Lyndon going into the final period. Both teams came out scoring in the third period. Kapourkranidis tailled one more with an assist from Gawtkin. Montgomery put two more in with assits on each from Reardon and one from Jayden Hayes. Lyndon won by a score of 7-6.

The Squirts will be at home again Saturday against Woodstock.


Lions Will Bench WR Young vs. Texans

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions are benching wide receiver Titus Young for Thursday's game against Houston following what coach Jim Schwartz calls "unacceptable" behavior during Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Schwartz does not characterize the move as a suspension, but says Young was sent home from the team's practice facility Monday and will be inactive against the Texans. The coach does not say what Young specifically did wrong, but says there's no room for selfish behavior in a team sport.

Young, a second-year receiver out of Boise State, has 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns this season. He caught one pass for 24 yards Sunday.

Young was involved in an altercation with teammate Louis Delmas last offseason. When he was in college, he missed most of the 2008 season for disciplinary reasons.


Sessions, Bobcats Squeeze Past Bucks 102-98

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Ramon Sessions scored nine of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, including a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds left to seal the game, and the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-98 on Monday night.

The Bobcats trailed by 11 in the fourth quarter but battled back, going 16 of 16 from the free throw line down the stretch. Sessions' two free throws after Monta Ellis missed a 3-point attempt sent the Bucks to their first road loss of the season and lifted the surprising Bobcats (5-4) back above .500.

Ellis scored 31 points for the Bucks (6-3).

Kemba Walker and Byron Mullens each scored 19 points for the Bobcats, while rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist turned in another solid effort with 15 points and nine rebounds.

Mike Dunleavy scored 16 points for Milwaukee. Brandon Jennings was held to 10 points on 5-of-18 shooting.

PACERS 96, WIZARDS 89: In Washington, there were boos early and at the end for the winless Wizards, who dropped to a franchise-worst 0-9 with a 96-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

Indiana's David West scored 13 of his season-best 30 points in the fourth quarter, and Roy Hibbert broke out of a slump with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Still without point guard John Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, and starting center Nene -- and no one seems to be sure when either injured player will make his season debut -- the Wizards are the only team in the NBA without a victory. They started 0-8 a year ago, the club's previous worst opening to a season.

They were led Monday by rookie Bradley Beal's 18 points, 17 coming in the second half.

HAWKS 81, MAGIC 72: In Atlanta, Al Horford scored 15 points and Lou Williams added 14 to lead Atlanta.

Zaza Pachulia pulled down 10 rebounds in a reserve role for Atlanta, which has won two straight and three of four.

Glen Davis was the only player to score in double figures with 11 points for the Magic, who have lost two straight and seven of eight.

Orlando seemed to have given itself a break by ending the first quarter with a rare lead. The Magic had trailed after the first 12 minutes in seven of their first nine games, but they were outscored 24-12 in the third and were down 14 entering the fourth.

TIMBERWOLVES: In Minnesota, Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy is having arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, an ominous sign for a player trying to come back from years of chronic knee issues.

The Timberwolves say Roy is having the surgery Monday in the Twin Cities. The timetable for recovery will be determined after surgery.

Roy signed a two-year deal with Minnesota in the offseason after sitting out all of last year. He had injections in his knees over the summer that made them feel much better, and he was optimistic he could resume his basketball career.

He missed a few days before the start of the regular season with knee soreness and only played five games before needing surgery. The Oregonian first reported the surgery. He played seven seasons for Portland.
