Knott County Central shooting guard Camron Justice announced his commitment to Vanderbilt on Sunday night.
Justice — a 6-foot-2 prospect in the class of 2015 — was committed to Tennessee until February, when he opened up his recruitment and almost immediately named the Commodores his new favorite. Gonzaga, Boston College, Butler, Notre Dame and Western Kentucky were among the other schools near the top of Justice's list, but he went ahead and ended the recruitment Sunday.
Justice averaged 25.5 points per game and made 41 percent of his three-point attempts this season, leading Knott Central to its third consecutive appearance in the Sweet Sixteen. He was one of only two juniors — along with Holmes guard Beetle Bolden — to be a first-team selection on the Herald-Leader's all-state list. Justice will also be among the favorites for Mr. Basketball honors next season.
Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 133 overall prospect in the 2015 class.
Wawrinka topples Federer
Stanislas Wawrinka showed that his first Grand Slam title wasn't a fluke, upstaging his more illustrious countryman to add a maiden Masters trophy in Monte Carlo on Sunday.
Wawrinka came from a set down to beat Roger Federer 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the Monte Carlo Masters final, another milestone in the late-blooming 29-year-old's career.
Having beaten Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal en route to his Australian Open victory this year, Wawrinka showed again he can compete with the best by earning just his second career victory against Federer in the first all-Swiss ATP final in 14 years.
Bruins top Red Wings 4-1 to even series
Justin Florek and Reilly Smith scored in a three-minute span in the first period and the Boston Bruins evened their playoff series with a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings in the Game 2 on Sunday.
Showing more spark after not taking enough challenging shots on goal in their 1-0 loss Friday night, the Bruins had 18 shots in the first period after managing just 25 in the entire opener.
Luke Glendening cut Boston's lead to 2-1 at 13:20 of the second period before Milan Lucic scored late in the second and Zdeno Chara added a power-play goal early in the third.
Women's golf ties for 8th
The Kentucky women's golf team moved up four spots on the final day of the SEC Championship to tie for eighth place at the Greystone Golf and Country Club in Hoover, Ala. Sophomore Cylia Damerau recorded a top 20 finish for the Wildcats by placing 18th with a three-day score of 9-over 225. Vanderbilt won the SEC Championship.
GolfKuchar comes from 4 stokes down to win
Matt Kuchar overcame a four-stroke deficit to finally finish on top, when his stunning chip-in on the 18th hole gave him a 64 and a victory at the RBC Heritage on Sunday.
Kuchar was four shots behind Luke Donald at the start but made that up with seven birdies on his first 10 holes. He had a birdie putt of less than eight feet at the par-3 17th, but three-putted for bogey to fall into a tie for first.
Kuchar was in more trouble in a bunker at Harbour Town Golf Links' closing lighthouse hole. That's when he blasted out and watched the ball rattle in for birdie.
Donald had two holes to catch Kuchar after the chip but couldn't do it. He missed a 28-foot birdie putt at the 17th hole, then saw his own try at a chip-in birdie slide past the cup.
"To me it's not about money," Jimenez said. "It's about some different goals to make me feel proud of myself. To me I would feel nice to play on the Ryder Cup once more."
Japanese 15-year-old Minami Katsu became the youngest winner in the history of the Japan LPGA tour by shooting a 4-under 68 on Sunday to take out the Vantelin Ladies Open. The amateur had five birdies against a lone bogey at Kumamoto Airport Country Club to finish at 11-under 205, one stroke ahead of South Korean Lee Bo-mee.
GymnasticsFlorida, Oklahoma co-NCAA champs
Arkansas' Katherine Grable captured two titles on the final day of the NCAA women's gymnastics championships.
Florida and Oklahoma, meanwhile, deadlocked again.
Grable, who was tied for second in the all-around, won the floor exercise championship in Sunday's individual event competition and shared the vault title with LSU's Rheagan Courville after qualifying as an individual. It was the first NCAA gymnastics title for Arkansas.
Florida's Bridget Sloan, a 2008 Olympian, captured the third title of her career. She won the uneven parallel bars with a score of 9.9375.
Co-champion Oklahoma also picked up one title after the first shared NCAA team championship in women's gymnastics, courtesy of Taylor Spears on the balance beam.
The last word
An LPGA victory in Hawaii means joining a hula dance at Ko Olina Golf Course, but Michelle Wie looked more comfortable bending over her putts than going through a few hula moves. Said the Hawaiian native:
"It went a lot longer than I expected. I'm not the smoothest dancer alive. But I think I made a lot of friends happy. They texted me and said, 'You're never living that down — ever.' It was awkward. But I had fun. It was awesome."
