Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

By John Evenson

Dolphins free agent signing Knowshon Moreno is finally back taking part in full contact football this week at practice, the Dolphins hoping he can improve their 26th ranked running game from last season. One thing he's already done is improve fellow running back Lamar Miller's performances.

Miller has outperformed Moreno in most of the offseason workouts so far, looking much more motivated than he did last season. Of course, part of Moreno's slow start was because of his nagging knee injury and the fact he came into camp a little heavy, but with knee surgery now behind him, he's ready to be the Knowshon Moreno Dolphins fans were hoping he's be.

UNDATED (AP) -- Brice Johnson had 18 points and No. 24 North Carolina used its stout defense to hold off No. 12 Ohio State 82-74. Johnson shot 8-for-10 from the field and also hauled in nine rebounds. Marcus Paige added 16 points for the 8-3 Tar Heels, and Kennedy Meeks finished with eight points, 13 rebounds and two blocked shots.

The Buckeyes shot 35 percent. They were averaging 84.2 points and shooting 53.7 percent coming into the day.

In other top 25 play;

-- Fourth-ranked Louisville survived the ejection of star player Montrezl Harrell to hold off Western Kentucky 76-67. Harrell was tossed near the end of the first half for throwing an elbow after a shoving match. He scored 14 points before the incident. Terry Rozier scored a career high 32 points to help the Cardinals improve to 10-0.

-- JayVaughn Pinkston had 25 points including the game tying basket with 4.2 seconds left in regulation to help No. 7 Villanova to an 82-77 overtime win over Syracuse. The 11-0 Wildcats never led until overtime and rallied from a 15-point hole to stun their former Big East rival. Rakeem Christmas and Michael Gbinije (BIHN'-ih-zhay) each scored 18 points for 6-4 Syracuse.


UNDATED (AP) -- The NFL's holiday schedule gets going with a pair of games today and tonight.

Philadelphia visits Washington in a key battle for the Eagles, who trail in the race for the NFC East lead. Philadelphia has dropped its last two games, including last week to Dallas. That put the Eagles a game back of the Cowboys for the conference lead. In the Redskins Philly gets an opponent that has lost six in a row and goes into the game 3-12. Robert Griffin III returns as Washington's starting quarterback in the team's fifth change at that position this season.

San Diego is facing a "must win" situation when it visits the 49ers tonight. The 8-6 Chargers are on the periphery of the AFC playoff picture and not only need to win out, but have to get some help to grab a wild-card spot. Things have fallen apart for the 7-7 49ers, who are out of the postseason derby. They've lost three in a row.


CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Browns have placed safety Tashaun Gipson on injured reserve with a knee injury he sustained four weeks ago.

Gipson was having a Pro Bowl-caliber season, leading the NFL with six interceptions when he hurt his knee on Nov. 23. He had hoped to return, but the Browns put him on IR before traveling to Carolina on Saturday.

Gipson is still tied for the league lead in interceptions.


UNDATED (AP) -- The college football bowl seasons kicks off today with five of the 39 postseason games that are scheduled.

In the opener, Terrance Broadway passed for 227 yards and a touchdown as Louisiana-Lafayette beat Nevada 16-3 to win the New Orleans Bowl for the fourth straight time. Hunter Stover kicked three field goals for the 9-4 Ragin' Cajuns.

Colorado State looks for the school's first 11-win season since 1997 when the Rams take on No. 23 Utah in the Las Vegas Bowl. Colorado State has won 16 of its last 20 games, but did not face a ranked team this season. The 8-4 Utes feature a defense that led the nation in sacks with 52.

Utah State goes for its third straight bowl victory for the first time in school history when it meets UTEP in the New Mexico Bowl. The 7-5 Miners haven't won a bowl game since 1967. The Aggies are 9-4.

Air Force faces Western Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. It's a meeting of schools that staged dramatic turnarounds this season. The Falcons went from 2-10 a year ago to 9-3. The Broncos finished 8-4 just a season after posting a 1-11 mark.

The Camelia Bowl matches Bowling Green against South Alabama


UNDATED (AP) -- The weary San Antonio Spurs are back in action tonight, visiting Dallas in one of seven games on the NBA schedule. San Antonio is coming off its second consecutive triple-overtime loss last night, against Portland.

The Spurs have lost four in a row.

The Northwest Division-leading Trail Blazers don't get any rest either, heading to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.

In NBA finals;

-- Eric Bledsoe had 25 points and 10 rebounds while Isaiah Thomas added 22 points to help Phoenix top the Knicks 99-90. Carmelo Anthony had 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Knicks after missing a game with a sore left knee. New York has lost four straight and is 5-24.


UNDATED (AP) -- Two teams on impressive runs meet tonight in a highlight game on the 12-game NHL schedule when Chicago visits Columbus.

The Blackhawks have won 13 of their last 15 to push them to the top of the Central Division, a point ahead of St. Louis.

The Blue Jackets are on a nice run themselves. They have points in their last eight games including wins over three division leaders. However, the Blue Jackets have lost forward Boone Jenner for up to two months with a stress fracture in his back. He's been placed on injured reserve.

An outbreak of the mumps that has affected three of their players, including captain Sidney Crosby, hasn't derailed the Penguins. The Metropolitan Division leaders have won six of their last nine heading into tonight's game with Florida.
