QUEBEC -- Defending champion Esteban Toledo shot a 6-under 66 on Saturday for a share of the second-round lead with Brad Faxon in the Champions Tours Quebec Championship. Terrell Owens Jersey . The 51-year-old Toledo, the only Mexican winner in the history of the 50-and-over tour, matched Faxon at 10-under 134 at La Tempete in the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event in the area since 1956. Toledo won the then-Montreal Championship last year at La Vallee du Richelieu for his second Champions Tour victory. "I went out there on the golf course today and enjoyed myself," Toledo said. "Thats pretty much what I did. ... I hit it great. Hit a lot of fairways, hit a lot of greens, I putted well and it seems like when I putt well, I get a lot of confidence." Faxon, also a two-time senior winner, had a 67. "It was a good solid round of golf today," said Faxon, an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour. "I laughed at myself because I started thinking about how my rounds are usually miss the fairway, miss the green, chip it up, make a par, and this was on the fairway, on the green, make a putt and it was a nice round. "Then when I started thinking about that, I hit a bad shot on 16 and made a bogey and then three-putted 17. But the birdie on 18 was a great birdie to make finishing in the dark, in the cold." Loren Roberts was third at 8 under after a 69. Jay Haas, Scott Simpson, Wes Short Jr. and Duffy Waldorf were 7 under. Simpson and Short shot 68, Haas had a 69, and Waldorf a 71. Two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, making his Champions Tour debut, was tied for seventh at 6 under after a 67. He turned 50 last week. First-round leader Chip Beck followed his opening 65 with a 75 to drop into a tie for 23rd at 4 under. Leo Nomellini Jersey .C. United on Wednesday night.

The Indiana Pacers earned the No. Barrett Hayton Jersey . 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and theyll begin their crusade for an NBA title Saturday night when they welcome the Atlanta Hawks to Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Catch the game on TSN2 starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Pacers held the No. 1 spot in the East for much of the regular season, but the end of the campaign didnt go as planned. Indiana went 10-13 to finish the season, but got the top seed when the Miami Heat rested some starters late in the campaign. "I was excited that we got it. It was something we set out for," head coach Frank Vogel said prior to their season-finale. "It gives us the best chances going into the playoffs." The Pacers lost in seven games to the Heat in last years Eastern Conference Finals. They finished second in the NBA in opponents scoring and first in opponents field-goal percentage. They also finished with the best home record at 35-6. But the Pacers will need to improve significantly if they are going to advance in the postseason. All-Stars Paul George and Roy Hibbert both regressed as did Lance Stephenson. But the team is built on defense and have had time to try and cure whats ailing them. "This is the best time of the year," said Stephenson. "Every game is on TV and every game is about business. Theres no joking around. Everybody is watching." The Hawks are in the playoffs for a seventh consecutive season and needed both late-season heroics and a collapse by the New York Knicks to punch a ticket. Under the guidance of first-year head coach Mike Budenholzer, the Hawks managed to tread water in an otherwise dreadful Eastern Conference and hope to move past the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2010-11. The Hawks have been bounced in six games in each of the last two conference quarterfinals. They lost six in a row in late March and started to feel the heat. However, the Hawks won six of the next eight games to get back on track and a 98-85 win over the Heat on April 12 sealed the eighth spot. "Im happy for all the guys," Hawks guard Jeff Teague said. "We worked so hard all year. Injuries and everything that can happen to a team happened. We were able to still make it to the playoffs." The Hawks dealt with a major loss early on when All-Star center Al Horford went down with a right pectoral injury. But Teague and Paul Millsap picked up the slack and got Atlanta the eighth seed. Teague averaged 16.5 ppg and 6.7 apg and Vogel indicated that he was the key to stopping the Hawks. "The whole defensive game plan is keeping (Teague) out of the paint; its the toughest challenge were going to have," acknowledged Vogel. Indiana and Atlanta met in the 2012-13 playoffs and the Pacers disposed of the Hawks in six games. The Pacers and the Hawks will face each other in the postseason for a sixth time and the two sides split four regular-season meetings this season. The Hawks trounced the Pacers in Indiana on April 6, but Indiana is 10-5 in its last 15 as the host in this series. Atlanta has won 14 of its last 16 against the Pacers at Philips Arena.

Aaron Ness Jersey . Braden Calverts Winnipeg rink rallied to defeat Italy 8-7. After giving up three points in the second end, Calvert came back with a single, then stole two more points in the next two ends to tie it up at the fifth-end break.TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upgraded their struggling offensive line, trading for six-time Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins instead of offering a contract to free agent Richie Incognito. That doesnt mean, however, that the Bucs have closed the door on the prospect of giving one of the players at the centre of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal a chance to resume his career. After acquiring Mankins in exchange for second-year tight end Tim Wright and an undisclosed draft pick on Tuesday, coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht said Incognito remains an "option" if they decide to make more changes to an overhauled line that will begin the regular season with four new starters. "We try to not to talk about putting a period behind many things. Everything is ongoing. If a player is available out there, theres still possibilities," Smith said. "But we like our football team where we are right now. Weve made a lot of improvements. We feel like were in pretty good shape going into the season." The deal came less than 24 hours after the Bucs met with Incognito to try to determine if the 31-year-old whos coming off serving a suspension for his role in last seasons bullying scandal might be an answer to their problems at guard. Smith described Incognitos visit as "informative," adding that the 2012 Pro Bowl selection with the Dolphins was able to answer "all of the questions I had" in the face-to-face meeting. While its unclear what will happen with Incognito moving forward, Smith and Licht stressed they felt fortunate to be able to add a player the calibre of Mankins. "He has a history of a certain type of play in the league," Smith said, adding that the 10th-year pro will bring leadership on and off the field. &quuot;We got better, kind of simple as that," the coach added. Ilya Lyubushkin Jersey . . "I like the direction our football team is heading." Mankins was a first-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2005 and has been selected for the Pro Bowl each of the past five seasons. He appeared in two Super Bowls and started all 130 regular season games and 17 post-season games hes played in during a nine-year stay with New England. "Its very sad. Hes been here for a long time," Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis said. "Ive only been here for a couple of months, but Mank is known around the league as being one of the best offensive linemen in the game," the cornerback added. "Hes proven that, and hes done it for a long time." Revis played with Tampa Bay last season, so hes familiar with what New England is getting in return. Wright joined the Bucs as an undrafted free agent in 2013, starting eight games and finishing with 54 receptions for 571 yards and five touchdowns. Despite a productive rookie year, Wright became expendable after the Bucs signed veteran tight end Brandon Myers in free agency and then selected Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the second round of the draft. "Hes great, man. He started for us down in Tampa Bay. ... Were getting a solid player who can catch, who can run and run great routes," Revis said. "He was a wide receiver coming in and they switched him to tight end. He has a lot of speed at the tight end position." The Bucs will enter the season with at least four new starters on the offensive line, including both guards. Oniel Cousins and Patrick Omameh were listed as the starters before the trade for Mankins. Tackle Anthony Collins and centre Evan Dietrich-Smith joined the team in free agency. ' ' '
