IRVING — Big 12 Conference schools could now face fines, and even the loss of future home games, for failing to keep fans from storming courts or rushing fields after games.
Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the measure passed Wednesday gives him a broad authority to deal with such violations.
“I don’t know that there’s anything off the table in dealing with those issues,” Bowlsby said at the end of the first full day of the league’s spring meetings. “I think I’ve been given broad prerogatives to deal with those issues.”

Canyon standout Garland adapts to changing roles
amarillo.com / Thu, 28 May 2015 03:00:44 +0000
In the District 3-5A opener against Dumas, Canyon senior left-hander Isaac Garland did what was expected of him on the mound, combining with Tristen Hefner to throw a four-hitter in a 4-1 victory.
Garland hasn’t started on the mound since.
Against Dumas, Garland strained a muscle in his left rotator cuff, sidelining him from pitching for almost the entire remainder of district play. But that didn’t necessarily keep him off the field, as he’s contributed as a designated hitter and outfielder.

Shortstop Taff a sparkplug for the high-flying Raiders
amarillo.com / Thu, 28 May 2015 03:38:40 +0000
Randall shortstop Brett Taff wanted to make the most of his senior year after what he did last year.
Never mind that Taff was a first-team All-District 3-4A selection as a junior. Or that he was a co-district offensive MVP at quarterback for the undefeated District 3-5A champion Raiders last fall.
Having a good year in baseball still wouldn’t have been quite enough for Taff.
“I was thinking this year that I had to be way better than last year,” Taff said. “We’ve made it further but I’m not satisfied with that.”

PARIS — Gael Monfils delivered one final ace, his 21st, and closed out his latest raucous, five-set victory on Court Philippe Chatrier to the delight of roaring, partisan spectators.
An entertainer at heart, Monfils pounded his chest with his right fist repeatedly and, after hugging opponent Diego Schwartzman at the net, used his right shoe to etch a sketch of a smiley face on the French Open main stadium’s red clay.
Needless to say, his adoring public loved that, too.
