Fair caught the ball in the left corner and waited. The Syracuse forward had time to size up his first 3-point attempt of the game, which dropped smoothly through the basket moments later.The shot – the first field goal by either team – came in the first 71 seconds in the game, but it revealed to St. John’s that Fair could score from anywhere on the floor, something he put on display for the remaining 39 minutes of the matchup on Sunday.“I kind of felt my rhythm early,” Fair said. “I made a couple 3s and then after that, that kind of opened up the rest of my game. That’s why I was able to drive and make the midrange shot as well.”Fair scored in a variety of ways – from beyond the arc and on the offensive glass, on drives and midrange jump shots – en route a notching a team-high 17 points in the Orange’s (20-3, 8-2 Big East) 77-58 victory over the Red Storm (15-9, 7-5) in the Carrier Dome on Sunday. He was solid from start to finish, picking his spots within the offense and coming through to thwart a St. John’s comeback bid in the second half.“C.J. was terrific as always,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “It was a good win.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFair’s open 3 from the corner to start the game got his adrenaline flowing. The confidence grew from there, as he skied for an offensive rebound and banked in the follow to extend an early SU lead to six.A midrange jumper from the left corner swished through the net just as his long-range attempt to get it started did. It showed off another part of his well-rounded game and gave Syracuse a comfortable 12-point lead with 8:41 to play in the first half.Then came his second 3.Again it came from the left corner. And again with an easy swish through the net. Only this time Fair exaggerated his follow-through, holding it up for his teammates and opponents to see before he trotted down the court with a smirk on his face.“I felt good because I knocked down my first few 3s,” Fair said. “The team kept leaving me open because I’m not really known as the 3-point threat I guess and for me to knock it down, them two shots got me going.”St. John’s scouting report changed after the break.The Red Storm was well aware of Fair’s ability to hit the open 3 and opted to challenge the forward when he caught the ball on the perimeter.And as Fair said, that only opened up the final weapon in his offensive arsenal.With St. John’s closing in on Syracuse, cutting its lead to five points less than nine minutes into the second half, Fair caught the ball in the left corner, behind the arc. He drove baseline, absorbing contact from Red Storm forward JaKarr Sampson with each step to the basket, and released a high-arcing shot beyond the reach of St. John’s 6-foot-9 shot-blocker Chris Obekpa.The ball bounced around the rim and dropped. Syracuse led by seven and the threat was over. The Orange’s lead would never dip below eight in the final 11 minutes.“C.J. was great,” point guard Michael Carter-Williams said. “He got to the hoop, made his free throws, the pull-up jumper was good – he just had an all-around game and that’s the type of player C.J. is.”The junior also paced SU with nine rebounds in a steady 39-minute performance that has come to be expected by Boeheim and Fair’s teammates.Syracuse guard Brandon Triche said he expects Fair’s scoring average to continue to climb down the stretch. And he was quick to point out the forward leads the team in rebounding while playing nearly 40 minutes every game.But Sunday, it was Fair’s contribution to the offense that stood out. His first 3 sparked a strong start by the Orange, his midrange jumpers kept St. John’s at arm’s length for much of the contest, and his tough drives sealed the game in the second half.His all-around game came to the forefront right when Syracuse needed it against St. John’s.“He’s our most complete or consistent player and he’s just bringing it every night,” Triche said. “That’s what we need.” Comments
Steven Gerrard is set win his 100th England cap in Sweden on Wednesday after overcoming an injury scare.Gerrard had a precautionary scan after playing 90 minutes for Liverpool against Chelsea on Sunday, amid fears he had suffered medial ligament damage late in the game.But the scan revealed no damage and Gerrard is available to lead his country in Stockholm and become only the sixth England player to reach a century of caps.Only Bobby Moore, Peter Shilton, David Beckham, Bobby Charlton and Billy Wright have previously reached the landmark.A statement from the Football Association read: “Steven Gerrard has been cleared to travel with the England squad to Sweden having undergone a precautionary scan on Monday afternoon.“The England captain reported to the team hotel following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea and, having received positive news, is set to win his 100th cap against Sweden on Wednesday evening in Stockholm.” Manager Roy Hodgson has had to deal with a number of withdrawals prompting late calls for uncapped youngsters Wilfried Zaha and Carl Jenkinson.Five players, including Wayne Rooney, have pulled out of a trip that has caused consternation among Premier League managers keen to avoid their international stars becoming burned out.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is selling his home in the suburbs of Detroit (it can be yours for only $6.5 million), but it has nothing to do with him leaving the Lions. His wife, Kelly, quickly got in front of any theories involving a possible departure from Detroit.”No speculation is needed,” Kelly Stafford said in an Instagram story. “We’re about to have our fourth child and I personally do not want to live on a lake or have a pool with four children under the age of a little over 3. So that is the reason that it’s on the market.”Matthew Stafford is selling his house out in Bloomfield for $6.5 million. I knew they had money out there but sheesh https://t.co/anGAbHa3mn pic.twitter.com/hPPkHQ9SyQ— philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) May 15, 2020The Staffords’ Realtor told the Detroit Free Press that the family is “actively looking at properties” in Michigan. Rumors have been rampant this offseason about the Lions moving on from Stafford or drafting a quarterback to replace him with the No. 3 overall pick in April’s draft. The Lions swiftly shut down any rumors that Stafford would be traded, which ruined any smokescreen that the team had an interest in taking a QB with their first pick.MORE: Why the Lions won’t trade Matthew StaffordStafford stayed a Lion and the team drafted cornerback Jeff Okudah at No. 3, essentially confirming that the rumors were intended to drive up the trade market for the No. 3 pick. Lions GM Bob Quinn said after the draft that no official offers came in from a team trying to trade up. We’ve heard this story before: A star quarterback — in an offseason that swirled with rumors about him playing elsewhere — puts his house up for sale. This time, though, the story won’t end with the quarterback moving south to play in Tampa. “I want to be here,” Stafford said Thursday in his first public comments of the spring. “I love being a Detroit Lion. I love leading this team. All that kind of stuff is just out there to be out there. It’s a slow news month at that point and I’m just happy to be where I am and ready to deal with this offseason the way that it is and try to make the best of the season that I hope happens.”His 2019 season was limited to eight games because of a back injury that he said he’s fully recovered from. In those eight games, Stafford threw for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Projected over 16 games, those stats would have given him the most TD passes and second-most passing yards in the NFL last season.The Lions went winless in the eight games without Stafford.
