During the Chiefs’ first seven games, wide receiver Junior Hemingway averaged nearly 12 offensive snaps; during the last five games, he’s averaged 16 offensive snaps. That may not seem like a big difference, but after spending practically all of last season on the Chiefs’ practice squad, the 6-foot-1, 225-pounder couldn’t be more pleased to see his role increase for a winning team.
The Chiefs will play at Washington on Sunday without three key starters. Offensive tackle Branden Albert, outside linebacker Justin Houston and tight end Anthony Fasano have been ruled out because of injuries.
Free-agent outfielder Carlos Beltran is returning to New York — and not to the Royals — on a three-year deal for $45 million. The news broke Friday night on Twitter by several media outlets. Beltran’s wife, Jessica, soon thereafter tweeted: “Back to NY!”
The Royals landed a new outfielder Thursday morning, but it wasn’t free-agent Carlos Beltran, who held a much-publicized visit earlier this week at Kauffman Stadium. The newcomer is Norichika Aoki, whom the Royals acquired from Milwaukee for left-handed pitcher Will Smith. Aoki, 31, is a left-handed hitter who spent the last two years with the Brewers after eight seasons at Yakult in Japan’s Central League. He batted .286 last season with a .356 on-base percentage in 155 games.
Sporting Kansas City goalie Jimmy Nielsen described the first soccer championship of his career with a certain flavor of sentiment and passion. And perhaps some regret, too. He was only 21 when he hoisted the Danish Superliga trophy as a member of AaB Fodbold. He didnt think much of it, he explained, shaking his head in disappointment as his spoke. He desperately wants another chance.
When Sporting Kansas City defeated Houston in the Eastern Conference finals on Nov. 23, it marked the coldest Major League Soccer game on record. It was only 22 degrees when the match started. That mark may last only 14 days. The temperature is expected to hover around 20 degrees during the MLS Cup at Sporting Park on Saturday, with a wind chill of 10 degrees.
For KU coach Bill Self, who spent the last week talking about playing with the right kind of energy and toughness, the reserved personalities of his young players can be a significant sound barrier. But when Kansas tips off against Colorado at 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, Self will insert freshman guard Frank Mason into the starting lineup for Naadir Tharpe, adding another quiet voice to the fray.
Kansas junior Chelsea Albers’ career-high 17th kill couldn’t have come at a better time as her score was the final point in the Jayhawks’ victory against Wichita State in the first round of the NCAA volleyball tournament Friday night.
Almost from the instant Missouri’s move to the Southeastern Conference became official 25 months ago, MU athletic director Mike Alden cautioned that a 30-month orientation period lay ahead. That all seems like distant history now after Missouri secured the SEC East title and will play for the conference championship Saturday in Atlanta against Auburn with an outside-but-legitimate chance for the national title.
We know both Missouri and Auburn are the Tigers, but here are some facts about each school you might not have known:
On one end of the court, Thomas Gipson fought his way to the rim and made a contested layup. On the other, he blocked back-to-back shots and helped his teammates score in transition. The crowd at Bramlage Coliseum, easily the largest of the season, roared in approval. That sequence didn’t go down as the decisive moment in Kansas State’s 61-58 victory over Mississippi in Thursday’s Big 12/SEC challenge, but it might have been the most important.
Kansas State played in front of a large crowd for the first time on Thursday, and the 11,990 fans in attendance at Bramlage Coliseum made a noticeable difference.

When Mark Clemishire caught a huge rainbow at Lake Taneycomo, he could have had a place in the Missouri record books. But instead of keeping the fish to have it weighed on certified scales, he simply measured it, then let it go.
Find out where the fish are biting and the ducks are flying.
NEW YORK _ The Orlando Magic started Friday night's game against the New York Knicks well.
HOUSTON _ Three nights after leading a stirring fourth-quarter comeback, Stephen Curry could do nothing but tightly grip the towel draped over his shoulders as the clock ticked down.
