DIVISION III

COLUMBUS— Seldom is a girls team as quick as Columbus Africentric also so careful with the basketball.

The Nubians paired a lethal trapping defense with the ability to hold onto the ball for good shots to beat Versailles, 49-37, on Saturday night in the Division III state championship game.

“We practice a lot of just holding onto the basketball for two minutes,” said Africentric coach Will McKinney. “A lot of teams don’t realize what a weapon that can be when you have the ability to keep the ball away from the other team for two minutes. If you can do that in a game, whatever kind of lead you have you can kind of expand on it.”

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Before John Elway headed out to the golf course to take advantage of a sunny Sunday in the Rocky Mountains, the Denver Broncos’ general manager made yet another splash in free agency by signing wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to a 3-year, $15 million contract.

The Broncos have been the league’s most successful suitors so far, committing nearly $128 million to five players, including three thumpers who will reinforce a defense that was exposed in the Super Bowl: safety T.J. Ward, cornerback Aqib Talib and pass rusher DeMarcus Ware; and two receivers inSanders and Bubba Caldwell.

“They definitely did a great job from a free-agent perspective,” Sanders said. “When I saw them bring in DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward, I was like, ‘They’re stacking up on defense.’ I knew with Peyton Manning and Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas and Wes Welker and (Bubba) Caldwell, I was like, ‘I would fit with these guys really well.’ When my agent, Steve Weinberg, got the call, we were definitely fist-bumping. We were hoping that the numbers matched and they matched. So yesterday was probably one of the best days of my life.”

A former Pittsburgh Steelers No. 2 receiver, Sanders can play both the slot and the outside in place of Eric Decker, who left Denver for the New York Jets.

MIAMI — Ray Allen scored 14 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter on a milestone day for the veteran, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each scored 24 and the Miami Heat beat the Houston Rockets 113-104 on Sunday to snap their worst skid in three years.

Chris Bosh added 18 points for the Heat, who won for just the second time in their last seven games. They were down 97-92 following a 3-pointer by James Harden midway through the fourth, then finished the game on a 21-7 run.

Allen had 11 points during that late stretch, including a 3-pointer that allowed him to pass Allen Iverson for 21st on the NBA's scoring list. It was also the 750th regular-season win that Allen was a part of in his career.

Harden finished with 30 points for Houston, which got 21 points and 14 rebounds from Dwight Howard. Patrick Beverley added 15 points and Terrence Jones scored 12 for the Rockets, who've dropped three straight.
