It has healed for the most part,” Cousins said. “I’m still working things into shape, building the muscle endurance to play at a high level, but everything’s coming along well. We’ll come together and figure out the best plan for me.”The Warriors, who are also without star forward Kevin Durant due to a right calf strain, added Cousins last July despite a ruptured left Achilles tendon that prevented him from playing until January.In 30 regular-season games, Cousins averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.3 steals a game.ADVERTISEMENT View comments LATEST STORIES INQ NEWS VIDEO: Warriors vs Raptors: Which team are you rooting for?

Former Indiana Star RB Tevin Coleman Misspelled “Hoosiers” On This Trading Card

first_imgTevin Coleman Hoosiers Trading Card.Tevin Coleman Hoosiers Trading CardTevin Coleman played three years of football at Indiana, and was one of the top running backs in the Big Ten his last two seasons. He was selected in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons after leaving school with one year of eligibility remaining.Three years was plenty of time for Coleman to establish himself as a star on the gridiron, but apparently not long enough for him to learn to spell IU’s nickname. Trading card company Panini America includes athlete artwork in its packs, and Coleman’s sketch featured a misspelling of the word Hoosiers.Tevin Coleman’s 1 of 1 art card for Panini— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) June 15, 2015Ouch. That’s a pretty bad mistake by Coleman, and kind of odd that Panini didn’t want him to correct it. The IU faithful probably won’t be happy to see this, though we’re sure they’ll still accept Coleman due to the yeoman’s effort he put forth on the field for a sub-par team.last_img read more

Listen: Texas WR Daje Johnson Released A Rap Single, ‘Dealer’, About Dealing Drugs

Texas won 28-25. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Texas wide receiver Daje Johnson recently released a rap single titled, “Dealer,” and, well, it’s focused on a topic you don’t want a student-athlete to be rapping about. The single, appropriately titled, is about dealing drugs. The track opens, “If you lookin’ for the dealer, I got the plug. Probly catch him with the reefer.” Here’s the full song. It contains lyrics that are not safe for work. Johnson has had somewhat of a troubled career with the Longhorns, catching just five passes for -7 yards in 2014. Reaction to the single getting released was expectedly critical. The 5-foot-10, 184-pound senior later apologized for the song. I apologize for my prior post Dealer. I assure you that I’m still focused on my goals this season…… I just make music for fun— Daje’ Johnson (@BL4CKM4KO) July 8, 2015Texas opens its 2015 season Sept. 5 against Notre Dame.

Buckeyes field hockey flash past Kent State 82

It took the Ohio State field hockey team seven games to score nine goals. Against Kent State, the Buckeyes almost matched their season total for goals. OSU (5-3) beat Kent State (4-6) on Wednesday, 8-2, at Buckeye Varsity Field. After back-to-back road wins at Ohio University and Bucknell, OSU returned home and extended its win streak to three games. Senior forward Danica Deckard helped lead OSU to the win, tallying a hat trick and an assist. Deckard now has eight of the team’s 17 goals this season. By game’s end, six different OSU players had scored and four had posted an assist. OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said her team now has the look of a “hungry” squad. “I like the way we are playing together, our timing is a lot better,” Wilkinson said. “We’re distributing the ball and off second effort we are able to finish our opportunities.” Deckard agreed. “We were just really connecting passes and making stuff happen. So, it was really good to get a game like this where we made each other look good,” Deckard said. Kent State struck first 10 minutes into the game and held onto the lead until the 23rd minute when Deckard scored two unassisted goals in less than three minutes to give the Buckeyes their first lead. OSU wouldn’t look back. A goal from senior forward Berta Queralt, assisted by junior back Nora Murer, brought the score to 3-1 with five minutes left in the first half. OSU struck first in the second half with the first career goal from sophomore midfielder Mona Frommhold and an assist from Deckard nine minutes in. The Golden Flashes countered with a goal of their own less than a minute later making the score 4-2. After giving up a second goal, junior goalkeeper Emma Voelker turned away three shots and OSU held Kent State scoreless in the last 25 minutes of the match. “Emma played great, Emma made some great touches on it,” Wilkinson said. “All the support players in that corner defense played really smart, really proud of them.” OSU continued to pull away from the Golden Flashes with consecutive goals from veteran players in the span of almost five minutes. First, it was junior midfielder Paula Pastor-Pitarque who won possession of the ball in front the net and put it past the goalie for her second goal of the season. Next, Deckard completed the hat trick with a goal off an assist from sophomore forward/midfielder Carly Mackessy. The Buckeyes kept the pedal to the metal despite their 6-2 lead and scored two more goals in the last five minutes of the game. OSU’s seventh tally came from freshman forward Peanut Johnson with an assist from fellow freshman forward/midfielder Annie VonderBrink. It was Johnson’s first career goal and VonderBrink’s first career point. “It was exciting because I’ve been working hard but it was a complete team effort,” Johnson said about her first goal. The scoring barrage ended with a second goal from Frommhold with 3:17 left in the game. The Buckeyes will continue their home stand and start Big Ten play Friday versus No. 10 Northwestern. “It’s going to be a great game, like every team in the Big Ten you can’t take any of them lightly,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be a really tough, we just have to fight for all 70 minutes.” read more
