Goins, Moore lead JMU over UNC Greensboro 85-73

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) Rayshawn Goins and Devon Moore combined for 45 points as James Madison beat UNC Greensboro 85-73 Sunday in a nonconference game.

Goins scored 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting with 11 rebounds, while Moore had 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting for the Dukes (4-6).

The Spartans (2-6), playing their first game in over two weeks, were led by Trevis Simpson's 24 points.

A.J. Davis's layup sparked a 13-1 James Madison run about 6 minutes in for a 21-9 lead.

UNC Greensboro cut James Madison's 49-29 halftime lead down to 64-61 with 7:05 left, but Goins hit two baskets and the Spartans never got within five points again.

James Madison is 5-0 all-time against UNC Greensboro as the teams met for the first time since 1999.

The game was a homecoming for UNC Greensboro coach Wes Miller, who played his freshman year at James Madison in 2002-03 before transferring to North Carolina.

Trent Williams shares video of dog after reported fight that killed neighbor's dog

One of Trent Williams’ dogs involved in a fight with his neighbor’s dog received stitches on several deep cuts after the incident, according to a video shared by Williams on Twitter.

Redskins running back Derrius Guice posted a video of Williams' pitbull on Twitter. Williams quote- tweeted it on his account, echoing Guice’s statement with shouting emojis.

Warning: The video, which is linked here, is graphic and may be disturbing to some readers. 

The fight, which occurred in Missouri City, Texas, resulted in the death of the neighbor’s dog, Sandy. Williams' neighbors told local TV station ABC 13 that the dogs at his house are a menace to the neighborhood. "We've been here three years, and I'll definitely tell you my family and I feel like prisoners in our own neighborhood," said neighbor Cecelia Hernandez.

Williams defended his pets, telling ABC 13 that Sandy sent the dog she attacked to the veterinarian’s office fighting for its life. The procedures cost about $5,000 in medical bills.

Local police and animal control are no longer investigating the incident. Neither Williams nor his neighbors were charged.

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 15 Inactives: Scherff, Dunbar ruled out

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 15 Inactives: Scherff, Dunbar ruled out

When the Redskins host the Eagles on Sunday, both teams will be without multiple starters at the wide receiver position.

Redskins wide receiver Trey Quinn will miss his second straight contest with a concussion. The Redskins will roll out a trio of rookie wide receivers -- Terry McLaurin, Kelvin Harmon, and Steven Sims -- as the team placed veteran Paul Richardson on injured reserve this week.

Philadelphia will be without their top three wide receivers -- Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor -- in Week 15. Agholor will be inactive. Jeffery was placed on IR earlier this week, and Jackson has been on IR since early November. Jackson only appeared in three contests this season in his second stint in Philadelphia, but he torched the Redskins for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.

Ryan Kerrigan, who's been Washington's Ironman since entering the NFL in 2011, will miss the remainder of the season with a calf injury he suffered last week in Green Bay. The team placed him on injured reserve earlier this week, too.

Cornerback Quinton Dunbar has been Washington's best defender this season, but was forced to leave last week's contest early with a hamstring injury. He didn't practice all week and is inactive against Philadelphia.

Redskins guard Brandon Scherff will also miss Sunday's contest. He was questionable with an elbow and shoulder injury and only practiced on a limited basis this week.

Philadelphia will also be without their All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson, who is out with an ankle injury.

Here are the full inactives.
