Orr tops Foreman in overtime


Orr tops Foreman in overtime

By Michael O'Brien

It certainly wasnt pretty, but Orr survived the Public League quarterfinals Sunday at Chicago State, outlasting Foreman 62-60 in overtime.

"This was the worst weve played," Orr coach Lou Adams said. "We were terrible today. We outscored them but they outplayed us."

Neither team scored a field goal in the overtime, so it came down to free throw shooting. Orr was 3-for-4 and Foreman was 1-for-4. The Hornets didnt score a field goal in the final eight minutes of the game.

Marquise Pryor, Devante Jones and Deshawn King each scored 12 for the Spartans (19-3).

Orr jumped out to a 26-13 lead, but Foreman closed the first half with a 9-0 run and led by three at the break. Neither team led by more than four in the second half.

"I think we were worried about Simeon or Marshall (in the next round)," said Pryor. "We came together at the end and got focused as a team."

Karon Linton led Foreman (17-4) with 19 points, Terrance Overton scored 14 and Clarence Boyce had 13.

Carl White had a chance to tie the game for Foreman, but missed a jumper just before the buzzer.

"A lot of our shots were just going in and out," Foreman coach Terry Head said. "We dont have a really deep bench. Im proud of these guys, they play hard."

Report: Dexter Fowler closing in on deal with Cardinals

Report: Dexter Fowler closing in on deal with Cardinals

Dexter Fowler won't be making a surprise return to the Cubs next season.

Fowler is closing in on a deal to sign with the St. Louis Cardinals, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

The Cubs signed outfielder Jon Jay last week to a one-year deal, pretty much sealing Fowler's future with the Cubs.

In two seasons in Chicago, Fowler batted .261/.367/.427 with 30 home runs and 94 RBI, and a World Series ring.
