Joe Harris, a rookie guard who starred for the Virginia Cavaliers, signed a guaranteed two-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources told The Daily Progress of Charlottesville's Whitelaw Reid.
That all but assures Harris will make the team alongside LeBron James and company.
The Washington Redskins signed Mike Caussin, a former James Madison tight end who saw occasional action with the Buffalo Bills and grew up in Northern Virginia, starring for West Springfield High.
William and Mary announced that seven of its games will be televised, starting with the Tribe’s opener at 4 p.m. Aug. 30 at Men's tennis:
William and Mary announced that Phoenix Sigalove, a former All-Ivy League Columbia player in the early 1990s and Montana State's head coach in the late '90s, was named a men's assistant coach to Peter Daub.
The Richmond Kickers, who are second to Orlando in the 14-team USL Pro League, played the Charleston Battery to a 1-1 draw before 2,214 in South Carolina.
In the seventh minute, Jose Cuevas scored on a penalty kick after teammate Dane Kelly was pulled down near the goal for the Battery (4-8-6).
Richmond (10-1-9) responded in the 14th minute as Alex Lee sent a cross from the right that Jason Yeisley haded into the right side of the goal.
The game briefly was delayed in the 78th minute when a block of lights went out.
Eric Veilleux has been named an assistant coach for the AHL's Norfolk Admirals, the Anaheim Ducks' primary development affiliate. He will work under new head coach Jarrod Skalde and alongside fellow assistant Marty Wilford.
Veilleux, 42, who played seven AHL seasons, comes to Norfolk with almost nine full seasons of head-coaching experience in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Veilleux and Skalde, both playing center, skated for the AHL's Kentucky Thoroughblades for one season in 1998-99.
Playing as a substitute, former William and Mary All-American Megan Moulton-Levy nearly upended legendary Martina Hingis on Monday night, losing 5-4 in one of five shortened sets that comprised a World Team Tennis match.
Hingis plays for the defending WTT champion Washington Kastles (9-3), who defeated Moulton-Levy's visiting Boston Lobsters 25-9 (scores are based on total games won, so 25 is the maximum possible for a team).
Moulton-Levy is muscular and is one of the WTA Tour's shortest players, at just 5 feet. She regularly competes in doubles on the tour and in WTT, almost all of whose season is in July. According to The Washington Post's Isabelle Khurshudyan (a Daily Press writer as an intern last summer), she was prompted into singles action when Boston player Sharon Fichman incurred a knee injury during warmups.
“I had about 70 people here,” Moulton-Levy, who lives in Woodbridge, told the Post of her fan club in the stands at Smith Center, usually George Washington University's basketball arena. “I think they got a lot more than they bargained for as well.”
Hingis, 33, won five Grand Slam singles tournaments and nine Slam women's doubles crowns, and Moulton-Levy has played only one WTA singles match since 2010. The set went to a best-of-nine-point tiebreak, which ended when Moulton-Levy missed a shot a few inches out.
“This is someone I grew up watching, so to be on the court with her, competing against her was such an honor,” Moulton-Levy told the Post. “It was a blast.”
Moulton-Levy nearly upended Hingis in mixed doubles, too. The former Tribe star and James Cerretani led 3-1 before Hingis and longtime doubles star Leander Paes rallied to win 5-4, punctuated by a Paes overhead that caromed off Moulton's arm.
The Lobsters fell to 1-11.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
