Barbour leads Columbia to 66-59 win over Colgate

NEW YORK (AP) Brian Barbour and Grant Mullins scored 15 points apiece as Columbia defeated Colgate 66-59 Wednesday night in a nonconference game.

Barbour also had six assists for the Lions (7-5), giving the senior guard 301 for his career and tying Mike Jelinsky (1989-93) on the school's all-time list.

Steve Frankoski's 3-pointer with 4:41 remaining put Columbia ahead to stay, 56-54. The Lions took a 60-56 lead on Mark Cisco's jumper, with an assist from Barbour, and Barbour's jumper made it 62-56 with 2:26 remaining.

Columbia led 30-22 with 1:49 left in the first half, but the Raiders (5-10) went on a 14-0 run, spanning halftime, to go ahead 36-30.

Murphy Burnatowski, John Brandenburg and Pat Moore each scored 13 points to pace Colgate, which had won its last two games.

Frankoski finished with 11 points for Columbia, which turned the ball over just seven times.

Video of Michal Kempny doing bleacher runs reminds us that there is no offseason for the Capitals

There apparently is no offseason for Michal Kempny this year, especially after tearing his left hamstring this past season. 

At the Caps MedStar IcePlex, Kempny was seen putting in work doing bleacher runs on Tuesday. 

His hamstring looks great.

Thank goodness he is inside because the temperature outside has not been conducive to doing bleacher runs. 

The Caps defenseman suffered a lower-body hamstring injury on March 20 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tearing the hamstring forced him to have surgery and miss the remainder of the season. 

His absence was clearly missed for the Caps in their playoff matchup against the Carolina Hurricanes. Before the injury, he scored six goals and recorded 19 assists in 71 games for the Capitals. 

Now, just to see him return to the ice.

Trea Turner hits for cycle against Rockies for the second time in his career

For the second time in his career, Trea Turner has hit for the cycle against the Rockies. This time, he did it in Nats Park. 

Turner started his day in the first inning with a solo shot to left-center to open the scoring for the Nationals. A fortunate bounce yielded an infield single in the second inning, and he smashed a liner into the right-field corner in the fifth. A double for most players, Turner's trademark speed enabled him to stretch it into a triple.

With a comfortable 8-0 lead in the seventh, Turner sent a 98 mph fastball into the gap in right-center field, completing the cycle and capping off an incredible night for the Nats. 

Turner is the fourth player to hit for the cycle this season, and the 27th since 1908 to do it multiple times in his career
