(AP Photo/Eric Gay)The Denver Nuggets have put out targeted trade feelers on Kenneth Faried to gauge his value, according to multiple sources around the NBA.According to Grantland, the Nuggets have put Kenneth Faried on the trade market, gauging his value and demanding a very good return. Faried averaged 11 points, 9.2 rebounds and won the MVP award of the Rookie-Sophomore Game at All-Star Weekend last season. Faried is entering the third season of his four-year rookie deal, and given his per-game numbers, he figures to get paid on his next contract.Faried is a highly valued player, he has well-above average athleticism, and a motor that seemingly never stops. There will definitely be offers, but the asking price would undoubtedly be extremely steep.Though the Nuggets organization denies putting Faried on the market, sources around the league say that the Nuggets are just trying to get a feel of what they can get for him.It’s highly unlikely that Faried will be traded, but it does make sense for Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw to see what he can get for his big man.
The potential for success is there for the Ohio State men’s soccer team, but with 11 newcomers from last season there are questions at almost every position.Eighteen of the 25 players are freshmen and sophomores, but it’s the hope of coach John Bluem that competition at every position will be the ingredient for success.“We are young, we are inexperienced and there are going to be some growing pains along the way,” Bluem said. “But we’re beginning to see what players are capable of and where they might be able to play.”Despite all the newcomers to the team, the coaching staff has been pretty pleased. Six games into the schedule the Buckeyes stand at 3-0-3 heading into their game on Wednesday night. At the outset of the season, the team set out to be more fit and organized than any opposing team. They planned to exert maximum effort. The team worked on those things in the offseason. Bluem said that is the key to having a successful season. “If you do those three things, if you’re fit, organized and you work hard, you’re going to like the results,” he said. The offense is coming together and as OSU plays more games the underclassmen will gain more and more experience, helping to cut down the mistakes that a young team like this tends to make. The coaching staff is also still trying to find the starting lineup and style of play they want to run this season to put them in the best position to win. But so far the Buckeyes have to feel good about themselves, considering all the unanswered questions surrounding the team.“It’s a learning process to get good results,” Bluem said. “But at the end of the day we’re pleased.” Something seems to be working, as the team has not lost on the season so far and their last game was a 0-0 draw to SIU Edwardsville. The Buckeyes have now gone six games without a loss, the longest stretch since the start of the 2001 season when they opened 6-0-1.The team opened its season against Cincinnati getting a 5-1 win. The team’s other two wins included Cal State Fullerton and Butler. They also faced Gonzaga, Louisville and SIU Edwardsville, all three games ending in draws.The Buckeyes’ next opponent will be IUPUI on Wednesday at 7 P.M in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
The Ohio State men’s golf coach said his team just couldn’t recover. The Buckeyes finished 11th among 11 teams with an overall score of 629 at the two-day Jack Nicklaus Invitational on Tuesday in Dublin, Ohio. Coach Donnie Darr was not pleased with OSU’s play, and attributed the team’s performance to losing its drive. “The biggest thing was we really struggled with our ball striking and we hit the ball in position where it was hard to get it up and down,” Darr said. “Once it started to go bad on us the momentum went away from us and we never recovered.” From the get-go, the team faced minor delays due to frost on Monday and Tuesday morning and the tournament was reduced to 36 of the original 54 holes. Freshman Tee-K Kelly led the Buckeyes tied for 23rd place with a score of 74 for the first round and 81 for the second round. Sophomores Boo Timko and Grant Weaver tied senior Matt Turner for 35th place. Timko scored a pair for 79’s for the first and final round, while Weaver scored 77 the first round and 81 the final round. Turner scored 78 the first round and 80 the final round. Following the trio tied for 35th place, freshman Max Rosenthal tied for 50th place with scores of 82 and 81 in the first and final rounds of the tournament, respectively. Behind Rosenthal, sophomore Logan Jones placed 59th with a score of 88 the first round and 85 the final round, while freshman Sean Busch followed Jones, finishing 60th with a score 86 the first round and 89 the final round. Darr said even though the team did not place its best Tuesday, he is still happy with the team’s play this season. “I think we had a really good fall leading up to this event, our first three tournaments we played very well and very consistent and we were growing as a team,” Darr said. “We just had a bad week this tournament, just a small set back, you are going to have good days and bad days.” The Buckeyes will compete in the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas, Texas, Oct. 29-30, for the team’s last tournament of its 2012 fall season.
Pep Guardiola has declared Leroy Sane as the world’s best winger ahead of Manchester City’s Carabao Cup final with Chelsea on Sunday.The Germany international came off the bench on Wednesday to equalise for City against former club Schalke 04 in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash by scoring a superb free-kick from 30 yards out.Sane’s goal helped inspire 10-man City to a 3-2 comeback victory on the night and he will now be eyeing a starting spot at Wembley this weekend as the Citizens chase a second successive Carabao Cup.But opportunities at the Etihad Stadium have been a little harder to come by this season for Sane due to Bernardo Silva’s adeptness down the right wing and Raheem Sterling’s fine form.However, Guardiola holds Sane in very high regard and will not contemplate moving him down the middle.“Playing in the middle he can do it,” said Guardiola on the club website.“But I think he’s better out wide.“I’m not saying he can’t (play in middle) but at the moment we have better players to do that job.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

I’d prefer to use him where he is strongest, he’s an incredible player.”The former Barcelona coach is well aware of the importance that this weekend’s cup final can have on his City team and is wary of a possible revenge-seeking Chelsea, who they thrashed 6-0 in the league on February 10.“It was really important [to win the Carabao Cup],” revealed Guardiola.“In the Premier League, we were flying in that period but in the days before, we went out of the FA Cup at Wigan.“It is not the most important title but we are here, playing at Wembley – a magical stadium, against a top side in Chelsea.“In the moment, I was so happy but today, I wish we hadn’t beaten them 6-0!“I don’t like to play one team in a short period of time, after you’ve beaten them.
