Game of the Week: Dwyer vs. Glades Central

Story by John Evenson / CBS 12 Sports
Our first Game of the Week of the season features a match-up that is highly regarded as the best in the east against the best in the west. Both the Dwyer and Glades Central football teams are well known for consistently producing BCS and NFL stars, and there is no shortage of talent on the teams entering this season. Both teams consider anything less than a State Championship as a disappointment.

In my eyes its a good way to start the season, says Glades Central running back Jerry Jones, because in the playoffs well be playing tougher teams than this, so its a good way to get prepared.

You know theyre gonna come to play, says Glades Central head coach Roosevelt Blackmon, because theyve got a chip on their shoulders.

That chip on Dwyers shoulder in courtesy of a 44-13 Kickoff Classic loss to Miami Central this past Saturday. The Panthers were not happy about giving up 175 yards worth of penalties, and they turned over the ball too much for their liking.

We gave up plays against Miami Central, agrees Dwyer head coach Jack Daniels, two pass plays, and were not like that. We dont usually do that, but Glades Central will exploit you in the same way.

NCAA TOURNAMENT-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Top-seed Kentucky continues its push for an unbeaten season and national championship tonight when it faces West Virginia in an NCAA Midwest Regional semifinal. The 36-0 Wildcats are facing a team that thinks defense first and presses continuously. West Virginia coach Bob Huggins is 8-2 lifetime against good friend John Calipari, the coach of the Wildcats.

In the first game in Cleveland, 31-5 Notre Dame is leading Wichita State 33-30 at halftime.

The West Regional semifinals in Los Angeles feature top-seed Wisconsin facing North Carolina and Arizona matching up with Xavier.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL-FLORIDA-FRAZIER

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A person with familiar with the decision says Florida guard Michael Frazier II is leaving school early and entering the NBA draft.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because Frazier has not officially announced his decision. The person says Frazier is expected to sign with an agent and go through the draft process without considering a return to school.

Frazier is a two-year starter and one of the top 3-point shooters in the Southeastern Conference. He's widely projected as a mid-to-late second-round pick.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL-COACHES

UNDATED (AP) -- Four-time NBA All-Star Mark Price has been named the head coach of the Charlotte 49ers. He replaces Alan Major, who left the program after five years amid health problems and a lack of success on the floor. It's the first head coaching job for the 51-year-old Price who spent one season as an assistant on Bobby Cremins' staff at his alma mater, Georgia Tech.

Elsewhere;

-- Dayton coach Archie Miller has received a three-year contract extension through the 2018-19 season. The move comes after Miller led the Flyers to their second straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Dayton is 90-47 in Miller's four seasons.

----Tim Cluess, who has led Iona to 118 wins and two NCAA Tournaments in five seasons, had his contract extended through 2019-20. The Gaels have won at least 20 games and made a postseason appearance in each of Cluess' five seasons. Cluess has a 118-54 record at Iona.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Hall of Fame basketball coach Dean Smith passed away last month. On Thursday, the trustee of a trust that bears the late coach's name confirmed that $200 checks were sent out to each of the players who lettered for Smith's Tar Heels teams, about 180 in all.

The letter says Smith directed that following his death, each letterman was to be sent a check with the message "enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith."

The Hall of Fame coach died Feb. 7 at age 83.

NBA-SCHEDULE

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The only game in the NBA this evening is being played in Milwaukee where the Bucks entertain Indiana. The Pacers are tied for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference while the Bucks are the sixth-seed. The Bucks are limping toward the end of the season, losing seven of their last 10 games.

NHL-BLUE JACKETS

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Columbus forward Jared Boll has been suspended for three games without pay by the NHL for a check to the head of Patrick Maroon of the Anaheim Ducks. The hit came in Tuesday's win over the Ducks. The suspension will cost Boll $27,419.34.

NFL-MOVES

UNDATED (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers have waived offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who was acquired last March in a deal with Miami. Martin had left the Dolphins in October 2013 after accusing teammate Richie Incognito of bullying. An NFL investigation determined Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of Martin.

Martin started seven games at right tackle last season in place of injured Anthony Davis, allowing seven sacks.

In other NFL moves:

-- Pittsburgh has re-signed free agent wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey to a one-year contract. The 28-year-old served primarily on special teams for the Steelers in 2014 after coming over from Indianapolis.

-- Miami defensive lineman Derrick Shelby has signed his restricted tender offer and will make $2.4 million this year. Shelby provides depth in a front four upgraded with the recent signing of tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn soo). Shelby saw significant playing time off the bench last year at both tackle and end and had 21 tackles and three sacks.

---- The Bengals brought back defensive tackle Pat Sims, signing him as an unrestricted free agent from Oakland. Sims was Cincinnati's third-round pick in 2008 and spent five seasons with the Bengals before leaving as a free agent. He spent the last two seasons with the Raiders, playing in 32 games with a total of 85 tackles.
