USF guard Anthony Collins, rising to make the winning layup against Rutgers this week, hit his head on the court after a shot against Villanova on Thursday and was held out of the second half. He is expected to have tests today that will help determine his status for Tuesday at Notre Dame.

TAMPA — USF freshman point guard Anthony Collins, who missed the second half of Thursday's 74-57 win at Villanova after hitting his head on the court during a layup attempt, will have more tests today to determine how quickly he can return to play.

Collins flew back with the team Friday, writing on Twitter that he was "feeling much better." He returned in the first half after the injury, but trainers held him out of the second half.

Collins has been the catalyst in USF's 9-6 record and 2-1 start to Big East play, getting 10 assists and the winning layup in a home win Sunday against Rutgers. Sophomore Blake Nash had 12 points, six assists and one turnover in 28 minutes coming off the bench Thursday in Collins' absence.

North Carolina: Forward James Michael McAdoo (sprained left ankle) is doubtful for the No. 3 Tar Heels' ACC opener today against Boston College. Coach Roy Williams said he will make a game-time decision on the freshman.

UConn: Jim Calhoun, who returns from a three-game suspension today, said he decided not to retire after last season's national championship win in large part because he wanted to see through the NCAA sanctions leveled on him and his program for recruiting violations. "I always felt there was something hanging out there, and we needed some finality on that," the 69-year-old coach said.

Ex-Sickles star at Duke out for season

DURHAM, N.C. — Duke freshman Amber Henson, a high school All-American while at Sickles, will miss the rest of the season after surgery on her right knee. She had surgery Friday to stabilize the patella, an injury she has dealt with since high school.

Duke will apply for a medical redshirt for Henson, who played eight games and averaged about 2 points and 2 rebounds. She is the younger sister of North Carolina junior forward John Henson.

No. 5 Md. 77, Ga. Tech 74: Alyssa Thomas scored 24, including a pivotal three-point play with 17 seconds left, and the host Terrapins (15-0, 2-0 ACC) rallied from a 20-point deficit.

No. 7 Duke 76, Wake 58: Freshman Elizabeth Williams had 18 points, 16 rebounds and a conference-record 12 blocks for her first triple double as the visiting Blue Devils (11-2, 2-0 ACC) beat the Demon Deacons for the 36th straight time.

    Construction delays on the NFL's new stadium in Los Angeles mean the Rams and Chargers won't be playing there until 2020, a year later than expected, and the ripple effect could give Tampa another chance at landing a Super Bowl in February 2021.

    Tampa and Raymond James Stadium last hosted a Super Bowl in 2009, when the Pittsburgh Steelers edged the Arizona Cardinals.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.
