So we locked in and did a better job. We werent very good today.The teams combined for 48 fouls, and the Gamecocks made just 16 of 26 from the line. South Carolina allowed only three field goals in the final six minutes.I started off with a lot of turnovers and forcing a lot of stuff that wasnt there, Thornwell said. Once I settled down, I was all right.BIG PICTURESouth Carolina: The Gamecocks were expected to lean on their guards all season and Thornwell, Dozier, and Notice lived up to the billing.Louisiana Tech: The Bulldogs press was disrupting South Carolina all evening, leading to 15 turnovers. The problem was the Bulldogs left so many points at the rim, missing several layups.STAT OF THE NIGHTThe Gamecocks had 19 second-chance points to the Bulldogs nine, using their superior height to win the rebounding total 35-29.

He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat.

Jeff Teague led the Hawks (1-5) with 17 points and eight assists and Al Horford had 12 points and seven rebounds. Mike Scott scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half. . Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. BOSTON -- The decision didnt take long.John Farrell will return to manage the Red Sox next season. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski casually gave the news to Farrell in the less than 10 minutes between their respective season-ending news conferences Tuesday at Fenway Park.I just thought that, for me, John has done a fine job this year, Dombrowski said less than 24 hours after the Red Sox were swept out of the AL Division Series by the Cleveland Indians. Ive been happy with working with him myself. I think he has the respect of the clubhouse. We played hard. I thought we had a good season. We won the division title. We communicate well with one another. And so, for me, theres some decisions you just need to address as quickly as you possibly can because you know how important they are. I just thought it was the right time to do it, so thats why I did it.Farrell has one year left on his contract plus a team option for 2018. Although Dombrowski pledged his support for the manager, he also declined to address whether the Red Sox will pick up the option, saying that ownership would be involved in something of that magnitude.But committing to Farrell for 2017 without exercising his option would be tricky business. For one thing, it would raise questions about his job security, placing him firmly on the proverbial hot seat from the first time the team endures a losing streak.I need to sit down with ownership and discuss that, Dombrowski said. For me, it was just a matter of, I think its important for everyone to know hes our leader going forward. Hes very well respected, and it gives him a clearer mind that he needs to go along with his staff to move forward.Farrell was scrutinized more heavily than usual throughout the season by critics who were restless after back-to-back last-place finishes in the AL East. Not even a 93-win season and a division title could quiet the anti-Farrell crowd, which piped upp again Monday night after a questionable pinch-hitting decision in the seventh inning of a 4-3 loss in Game 3.

Instead, he values a managers ability to understand how to reach each player on the roster in order to optimize their performances, a skill he believes Farrell possesses.I do not feel that in-game strategy is the biggest thing as a manager, Dombrowski said. I think its important, but theres other things that I think are probably more important. As Ive often told managers, to me, the most important thing for a manager is that their club plays up to their capabilities day in and day out, which means that theyre communicating with their players and theyre getting everything that they can and that their club is playing hard.During spring training, Dombrowski noted that he hadnt gotten an opportunity to evaluate Farrell as a manager, mainly because Farrell missed the final two months of the 2015 season while being treated for non-Hodgkin Burkitt lymphoma -- which many critics believed saved Farrell from getting fired.But in his typical fashion, Dombrowski made nearly every road trip with the Red Sox and had ample time to form a judgment on Farrells managerial ability.My relationship with John all year has been tremendous, Dombrowski said. I never had an argument with John. Ive disagreed on points with him, but Ive disagreed on points with anybody at one time or another.Dombrowski said Farrells entire coaching staff will be asked to return. But after being asked to stay on as a bench coach for this season, Torey Lovullo is free to pursue managerial opportunities, according to Dombrowski. Lovullo has been a candidate for several managerial vacancies in the past.
