Clearly, Randy Johnson is no longer the glowering giant who seemed to be perpetually brooding over some perceived slight — such as any opponent who had the audacity to step to the plate with a bat in his hand. Five years removed from the game, and on the verge of his life’s crowning achievement — Sunday’s Baseball Hall of Fame induction in Cooperstown, N.Y., — Johnson was relaxed, cheerful and expansive during a full day of media interviews last week.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — One mystery was solved Thursday in the U.S. Open. Chambers Bay can be as hard as the USGA wants it to be. Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson shared the lead at 5-under 65, and the other 23 players who managed to break par in a gentle debut of the new golf course off Puget Sound agreed that it likely will only get tougher the rest of the way.
UNIVERSITY PLACE — Chambers Bay did just fine, thank you, and so did Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson.
Picking the five most memorable U.S. Opens from the 114 that have been held is kind of like trying to read a 45-foot putt with multiple breaks:
Mike Scott scored 23 points, Connor Hill had 21 and Idaho knocked off Northern Colorado 83-79 on Saturday, snapping a four-game losing streak.
Derrick Marks scored 28 points and Nick Duncan added a career-high 20 to lead Boise State to a 77-68 victory over Air Force in a close contest on Saturday afternoon.
Alec Wintering hit a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left on Saturday night and Portland finished with a 9-0 run to beat San Diego 61-58 in the West Coast Conference opener for both teams.
Isiah Umipig scored 16 and Deshaun Sunderhaus added 15 points, on 7-of-7 shooting, to lead Seattle past San Jose State 54-38 on Saturday night.
Marshaun Coprich ran for 258 yards and four touchdowns to lead Illinois State to a 59-46 win over Eastern Washington on Saturday in the FCS quarterfinals.
Grant Hedrick ran for two touchdowns to lead No. 22 Boise State to a 28-14 victory over Fresno State to win the Mountain West Conference championship Saturday night.
