Bowman, Wise claim halfpipe titles — Maddie Bowman followed up her gold at the X Games with another at Saturday’s U.S. Grand Prix in ski halfpipe in Park City, Utah. Bowman was the only woman competing with two 900s and landed both on her second run to win with a score of 85.2. Japan’s Ayana Onozuka was second with a score of 84.4 and Virginie Faivre of Switzerland took third at 82.8. X Games champ David Wise and fellow American Torin Yater-Wallace finished 1-2 in the men’s World Cup event.
Brazil cuts U.S. lead — Brazil’s doubles team of Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares upset the top-ranked Mike and Bob Bryan 7-6 (6), 6-7 (7), 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 and kept the United States from clinching the first-round Davis Cup match in Jacksonville, Fla.. It was only the third time the Bryan brothers had dropped a Davis Cup match. It was just the second time that they had dropped a five-set match in ATP competition. The United States has a 2-1 advantage heading into today’s reverse singles. The United States’ John Isner faces Brazil’s Thomaz Bellucci in the opening match. If Bellucci wins to even the score at 2-2, Sam Querrey of the United States and Brazil’s Thiago Alves will meet in the deciding match.
Mavs coach fined for comments — Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Saturday for criticizing the officiating after Dallas’ loss to Golden State. With the Mavs trailing 98-97 on Thursday, Brandan Wright had the ball knocked away while going up for a shot, and no foul was called. The Warriors went on to win 100-97 at home. Carlisle was particularly frustrated because the NBA had acknowledged the referees made a mistake in the final seconds of a loss at Portland two days earlier.
