Eagles sign LaRoy Reynolds, waive Dominick Sanders

The Eagles signed linebacker LaRoy Reynolds, the team announced Tuesday. They waived safety Dominick Sanders in a corresponding move.

Reynolds, 26, saw action in nine games for the Falcons last season, making seven tackles.

Cross country, tennis, volleyball, golf, lacrosse and gymnastics were among the Rutgers women’s programs recognized, while baseball and men’s cross country were cited among men’s teams.

I continue to be amazed by the young men and women who represent Rutgers University and our athletic department with such grace, class and dedication, Rutgers athletics director Pat Hobbs said in a statement. For the second-straight year, we have a school record eight programs receive public recognition from the NCAA and we are incredibly proud of the that accomplishment.

APR is the NCAA statistic that measures academic performance within athletics by accounting for eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or academic term.

APR scores are based on a 1,000-point scale. Each scholarship athlete can earn two points per semester toward his or her team’s score. One point is for being academically eligible at the end of a semester, and the other is for returning to school or graduating at the start of the next semester.

The Rockets have plenty of things to fix after squandering their coveted home-court advantage in the Western Conference finals.

Tops on their list: limiting turnovers, eliminating open 3s and making things tougher on the Golden State Warriors — particularly Kevin Durant.

Kevin Durant and (Stephen) Curry, they’re good. So they’re going to make shots, Houston coach Mike D’Antoni said. Our head can’t explode that they go one-on-one and make shots… you have to be able to absorb some of their greatness; at the same time, don’t make the mental errors that we did. That would accumulate for 15, 20 points, and that’s the difference in the game.

Some almost sounds like the Rockets will have to play almost perfect beat the Warriors. They wouldn’t go as far as to say that, but James Harden, who scored 41 in Game 1, did say that at this level the margin for error gets razor thin. ravens_152
