    NBA-Pistons select Oklahoma State's Cunningham with No. 1 pick in draft

    Cunningham, 19, was named the Big 12 Player of the Year after his season with the Cowboys and joins a young Pistons squad that picked three players in the first round of last year's draft. The Texas native said he could not have achieved his dreams without the support of his parents and two-year-old daughter Riley, whom he kissed on the cheek after his name was called by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver at Barclays Center in New York.

    Soccer-'We've turned a corner' says embattled Inter Miami coach Neville

    Neville, who replaced Diego Alonso in the close season, is a friend of Miami co-owner David Beckham and has been feeling the heat due to the club's dismal record of two wins, three draws and eight losses having made the MLS playoffs in its inaugural season last year. "It feels as if we've turned a corner," Neville told reporters on Thursday. The road ahead for the Eastern Conference's last placed team begins on Saturday when Miami face Montreal, who defeated Miami in the club's two previous meetings this season.
