Beavers dropped 2 in softball action

FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Bluffton University fast-pitch softball offense went south in game one and the defense followed suit in the 11 a.m. contest with Dominican as the Lady Beavers slipped to 2-2 following a pair of losses on Tuesday at the Lee County Sports Complex.

Wilmington limited Bluffton to a Jess Kuzara (Flat Rock, Mich./Huron) triple down the right-field line in the first inning as Danielle Monnier tossed a 1-hitter for a 3-0 victory which helped the Quakers improve to 2-3 on the season.

The Beavers had game two in hand, 5-1, before a pair of runs in the fifth inning and three more in the seventh propelled Dominican to an improbable 6-5 victory.

HOUSTON — Dwight Howard had 22 points and 16 rebounds, James Harden added 21 points and the Houston Rockets held LeBron James in check Tuesday night in a 106-103 win over the Miami Heat.

James had 22 points, one night after setting a club record with a career-best 61 against Charlotte. He acknowledged before the game that he was "extremely tired" and that he spent most of the day sleeping.

He had 19 points by halftime but appeared to drag at times in the second half and spent the first half of the fourth quarter on the bench.

Still, the Heat cut their deficit to three when Michael Beasley hit a 3-pointer with 21.2 seconds left. Harden threw the ball away after that and Howard accidentally hit James in the face when they both went up to try to grab a long pass.

James lay on the court holding his broken nose for a few seconds before getting up and slowly walking to the bench. He remained in the game after a timeout, but missed a desperation 3-point attempt at the buzzer that would have tied it.

The 4-time MVP has been wearing a protective mask to protect his broken nose.

Dwyane Wade had 24 points for the Heat after sitting out Monday night. Beasley also scored 24.

After the game, West Virginia's players gathered arm-in-arm and joined fans in singing John Denver's "Country Roads," the school's unofficial anthem. A trophy presentation was held afterward and the players took turns cutting down the nets.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Michael Frazier II set a Florida record with 11 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 37 points, leading the top-ranked Gators to a 72-46 victory against South Carolina on Tuesday night.

Florida (28-2, 17-0) has won a school-record 22 straight games to move within one win of a perfect Southeastern Conference regular season.

Frazier kept the Gators in the game when his teammates struggled in the opening half. Florida took control with a 23-5 run midway through the second half.

Frazier broke the 28-year-old Florida mark of Joe Lawrence, who made nine 3s against California on Dec. 27, 1986.

Mindaugus Kacinas had 12 points for South Carolina (11-19, 4-13), which was coming off a win over Kentucky.

Frazier blew past his old career best of 21 points set earlier this season against Texas A&M. He was 11-of-18 from 3-point range while the rest of the Gators were 0-of-13.

No other Florida player scored in double digits.
