2A region basketball: Calvary Christian 57, Kissimmee New Dimensions 56

For the second straight season, Calvary Christian won a tight game, 57-56, against Kissimmee New Dimensions in the Class 2A region quarterfinals.

Last season, Calvary had to rally in regulation and won in double overtime. On Thursday night, the Warriors had the lead and held on as New Dimensions missed a shot at the buzzer.

"It was big for us to win a playoff game on the road again," Calvary Christian coach Mark Carter said.

The Warriors led by as many as 10 points in the third quarter and withstood a rally. Stephen Brown hit two free throws to make it 57-53 with 30 seconds left.

Kyle Wiedinger led Calvary Christian with 20 points. Alex Govan hit four 3-pointers, and Tyler Daniel scored three 3-pointers for the Warriors.

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.

    TV and Radio

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
