eam hosting the Seattle Storm and the Indiana Fever taking on the Phoenix Mercury:INJURY STATUS: Elena Antworten

Nico Hernandez, who claimed a light flyweight bronze medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August, is going pro.Hernandez, a 20-year-old from Wichita, Kansas, will make his professional debut on Dec. 10 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska, on the undercard of unified junior welterweight world champion Terence Crawfords hometown title defense against John Molina Jr.Hernandez, who does not yet have an opponent for his four-round bout, will fight as a 115-pound junior bantamweight after competing in Rio as a 108-pounder.Hernandez said he and his father/trainer Lewis Hernandez discussed the possibility of remaining amateur and trying to improve on his performance at the 2016 Olympics, but Nico said he really wanted to go the professional route.I made the decision because financially it would be better as a pro, Hernandez told ESPN on Thursday. If Im getting punched in the face, I might as well get paid for it. Now theyre letting pros go to the Olympics (as of the Rio Games), so theres really no point in being an amateur boxer anymore since the goal is to make it to the Olympics.At the Rio Games, Hernandez ended the medal drought for Team USAs male boxers, who had not won an Olympic medal since heavyweight Deontay Wilder claimed a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games. Hernandez won a three-round decision against Ecuadors Carlos Eduardo Quipo Palaxti in the quarterfinals to clinch a bronze.Hernandez wasnt considered a medal favorite when the Rio Games began, but his Cinderella run ended with a decision loss to eventual gold medalist Hasanboy Dusmatov, of Uzbekistan, in the semifinals. Two bronze medals are awarded in boxing.Hernandez, who began boxing at age 9 and was approximately 122-13 as an amateur, returned home to Wichita as a hero. He was feted at a parade, and Wichita State University bestowed him with a four-year, full-ride scholarship.Hernandez went 3-1 during the Olympics and became the first American light flyweight to win a medal since Michael Carbajal -- who went on to have a Hall of Fame professional career -- claimed silver in the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Hernandez said he plans to work toward a degree while boxing professionally.I definitely want something [to] fall back on, Hernandez said.But he is anxious to start his pro career.I cant wait to go pro. Ive been wanting to for a while, Hernandez said. I fought without head gear already so it shouldnt be too much different.The 2016 Olympic tournament rules were changed to have the boxers fight without head gear.Although Hernandez will fight on a card promoted by Top Rank, he is not signed to Bob Arums company. Hernandez has a deal just for the one fight. He linked up with Top Rank because his father reached out to Pete Susens, who works for Top Rank but has deep roots in Midwest boxing.Lewis contacted Pete, and Pete called me about a month ago, said Top Rank matchmaker Bruce Trampler. I was a little reluctant because of his weight and being such a small fighter, but Pete said hes a good kid, a good fighter. I said, Let me think about it, and then the geography expert that I am realized Omaha is not too far from Wichita, so we said we would take a look at him.Lewis Hernandez said he expects about four busloads of fans to make the roughly six-hour trip from Wichita to Omaha for the fight.The people in Wichita know Nico, and the people in Omaha know Crawford, so you marry the two and it only adds to the card, said Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti. Weve had some internal discussions about whether we might want to sign him and if we do where we can take him. We want to see him as a pro. Its a small weight class, but maybe hes another Carbajal (who Top Rank promoted). Weve had experience in building Hispanic smaller-weight class fighters.Said Lewis Hernandez: We have other options, but we got to do whats best for Nico. Top Rank wants to take a look at him. Thats the purpose. I thought it would be great. We havent signed with nobody, but Top Rank is in contention. This is a good opportunity for both camps, for Top Rank and for us.Nico Hernandez said he is fine doing what amounts to a tryout for Top Rank.Im real comfortable with it, he said. I feel like once they see me fight and see what I have, opportunities will open for me, and I can sign with whoever is going to give me the best deal. Dallas Goedert Youth Jersey . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. Clayton Thorson Eagles Jersey . LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Youth-shareef-miller-eagles-jersey/ . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. Ron Jaworski Jersey . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. Wilbert Montgomery Jersey . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. NEW YORK -- The WNBA playoffs are ready to start with their own version of March Madness. Well sort of.The league changed the playoff format this season, adopting single-elimination games in the first two rounds before going to a best-of-five series in the semifinals.Im excited for it, said Los Angeles Sparks coach Brian Agler. No one knows yet how it will work out, but it should be exciting.The Sparks and Minnesota Lynx have byes until the semifinals after posting the top two records in the leagues 20th season. Minnesota will try to become the WNBAs first repeat champion since Los Angeles did it in 2001-02. Thats the last time the Sparks won a title, a skid they hope to end this season.Here are a few things to look for when the postseason begins Wednesday with the Atlanta Dream hosting the Seattle Storm and the Indiana Fever taking on the Phoenix Mercury:INJURY STATUS: Elena Delle Donne is sidelined after having surgery on her right thumb last week. The Sky have found ways to win without their star, clinching the No. 4 seed and a first-round bye. It might be difficult for Chicago to make a deep run without the 2015 WNBA MVP. ... New York has been beset by injuries toward the end of the season. Tanisha Wright (knee) played a few games before the regular season ended. Kiah Stokes hasnt played since Aug. 26 because of a hip injury. Shoni Schimmel also has been out with a concussion. The Liberty need to be healthy to have a chance to make it to the Finals.SUSPENDED: TThe WNBA handed out a one-game suspension to Atlantas Tiffany Hayes for accruing her seventh technical foul in the Dreams regular season finale on Sunday.dddddddddddd Under league rules, a player is automatically suspended one game when that number of technical is reached. The count is reset for the playoffs with a player receiving a suspension for a fourth technical in the playoffs.CURTAIN CALL: The stellar careers of Swin Cash , Tamika Catchings and Penny Taylor will end at some point over the next month. All three hope it will come after winning another WNBA Championship. Catchings and Taylor will square off on Wednesday when the Indiana Fever host the Phoenix Mercury in the opening round.Catchings won her lone title in 2012 while Cash won in 2003, 2006 and 2010. Taylor helped the Mercury to championships in 2007, 2009 and 2014.POSTSEASON SUCCESS: Breanna Stewart only lost one game in the postseason in college and that came in the Big East tournament her freshman year. She was a perfect 24 for 24 in the NCAA Tournament to lead UConn to four consecutive national championships. She hopes to continue that in the pros.I like the format, Stewart said after the Storms last trip to New York. Every game for us lately has felt like a playoff game because we needed to win to get in.---Follow Doug on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/dougfeinberg ' ' '
