Union ladies fall
in NAIA title game

JACKSON (AP) — Eboni Sadler scored 17 points and had a late steal and two free throws to help seal Azusa Pacific’s 65-59 victory against Union University in the women’s NAIA Division I championship game earlier this week.
Union (35-2) was on its homecourt playing for its third consecutive national title, but Azusa Pacific (33-5) won the rematch of last season’s championship game.
Alex Moore-Porter scored 17 points for Azusa Pacific from southern California.
Zeinab Chan had 21 points and 13 rebounds for Union, and Kayla Hudson scored 17 for the Lady Bulldogs from Tennessee.
With the game tied in the final two minutes, Briana Hall picked up a steal and gave Azusa the lead on a fast-break layup with 1:04 remaining.
The NAIA championships will be leaving Jackson — likely for Frankfort, Ky. — after a tenure of more than 20 years.

Titans work out
despite lockout

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are locked out, so cornerback Cortland Finnegan has started a workout regimen for his teammates.
He joined safety Chris Hope and tight end Craig Stevens earlier this week at Father Ryan High School.
It’s a small start, but Finnegan says he expects up to 20 Titans working out consistently every day at 9:30 a.m. once they get back from offseason trips.
Finnegan had a binder of workout plans and procedures with him. They are trying to stick to the same schedule of what they normally would be doing at the team headquarters.
Stevens says they are waiting for quarterbacks to do on-field work.
Hope says he hopes the work together will substitute for the chemistry often built in the weight room during offseason work.
