DALLAS -- The wait is over for Tim Jankovich to be SMUs head coach.SMU formally named Jankovich as head coach Monday, three days after Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown abruptly resigned.Im still sad and a little bit emotional about it, but at the same time, incredibly excited about the opportunity here for me and my staff, Jankovich said Monday night. That part is awfully exciting, and (Im) feeling all those emotions that you expect.Jankovich had been associate coach and head-coach-in-waiting for the Mustangs since he came to SMU with Brown in 2012. Jankovich was head coach at Illinois State the five seasons before that, and previously head coach at North Texas.At the same time, the dynamics are different because I just worked alongside a guy for four years that throughout my coaching career I put at the very top of coaches of our time, he said. Ive formed a very good relationship with him.Browns initial five-year deal went through next season, but he resigned Friday after turning down an offer from SMU to extend his contract through 2020.The Mustangs made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1993 under Brown, and won at least 25 games each of the past three seasons. They were 25-5 last season, but banned from postseason play because of NCAA sanctions.While the 75-year-old Brown had made occasional comments that he might leave, Jankovich said he honestly didnt think it would happen so soon.It was a little surprise to me. I dont want to say a great shock, Jankovich said. I guess when it was final, it was surprising to me.The 57-year-old Jankovich was 104-64 at Illinois State from 2007-12 after serving as an assistant coach for Bill Self, at Illinois (2002-03) and Kansas (2003-07). He was 53-57 as head coach at North Texas from 1993-97, and has also been an assistant at Vanderbilt, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Texas and Kansas State.Were thankful for Coach Browns efforts here at SMU to rebuild our mens basketball program and bring the magic back to Moody, SMU President R. Gerald Turner said. That said, I believe Coach Jankovich can continue to build upon that success and keep us on that upward trajectory. His experience at SMU has allowed him to build trust and relationships with our student-athletes as well as our campus and local communities, which will give him a head start as he takes over our program.While Nic Moore, Markus Kennedy and Jordan Tolbert were seniors last season, eight players are returning. There are also three incoming freshmen and a transfer from Arkansas who will have to sit out this season.When Brown was suspended for the first nine games last season because of NCAA sanctions, Jankovich filled in as head coach and the Mustangs won all of those games. Jankovich believes that stretch will help now, especially with the current players who had a chance to play with him in control for just more than a month.Not that Im glad that that happened, but it is a little bit of a blessing because I think it just makes in their mind, theres a lot less doubt of whats to come, Jankovich said. So I think that actually helps the transition, gives them a much better idea.Jankovich has also told the players that he knows they care about Brown, just like he does, and that its not something that you get over in five minutes. ... So were talking about that. I dont want to ignore that like you just flipped a page and nothing happened. Discount Nike Dunk Shoes Store .

FRANKFURT, Germany -- In one of the most startling developments in European football this season, newcomer RB Leipzig stormed to the top of the German Bundesliga on Friday by coming from behind twice to earn a 3-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen.In the process, Leipzig also set a Bundesliga record by staying undefeated in its first 11 matches after promotion. The team has won six straight games.Leipzig opened a three-point lead and will remain ahead at least until Saturday, when Bayern Munich has a tough match at Borussia Dortmund. Bayern needs to win to stay even on points with Leipzig.Leader, leader, shouted a group of Leipzig supporters after the final whistle.Leipzig fell behind a minute into the match but replied quickly and Willi Orban got the winner in the 81st minute.The teams got a great mentality, Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuettl said. We had a lot of confidence. Our win is not undeserved. It was simply great.Leipzig has taken 14 of its 27 points away from home and has the best record on the road.Before the match, about eight masked people stopped the bus carrying the Leipzig team to the stadium by falling to the ground and then throwing paint at the windshield. The assailants then fled, according to Leverkusen media director Meinolf Sprink.The Leipzig team has been the target of hostile actions by opposing fans, who object to the teams commercial links to Red Bull, an Austrian maker of energy drinks.Leipzig is a project created by Red Bull and its billionaire founder Dietrich Mateschitz, who bought and rebranded a local fifth-tier club in 2009. The booming former East German city had a stadium rebuilt for the World Cup in 2006 but had no team in the major leagues.Leipzigs links to Red Bull have led rival fans to consider it a test-tube team.

Julian Brandt broke through on the left flank unchallenged and sent a low cross to the far post, where Kevin Kampl tapped it in.It didnt take Leipzig long to recover and its pressure produced a corner. Emil Forsberg took it and Julian Baumgartlinger, under pressure from Marcel Sabitzer, saw the ball late as it hit him in the hip and bounced into the net for an own goal three minutes later.But the pace slowed down noticeably after the bright start and there were few chances on either side until Brandt scored deep into stoppage time. Hakan Calhanoglu sent a long ball to the edge of the area, Brandt controlled it well and fired into the roof of the net.Calhanoglu wasted a penalty in the 54th, after Stefan Ilsanker had upended Brandt. Calhanoglu took the spot shot but Peter Gulacsi dived to his left to parry.Forsberg equalized in the 67th, after a solo run down the middle, before firing from about 20 meters. Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno got his hand on the ball but could not keep it out.The winner came after Kampl could not control a ball in his half. Forsberg swung a cross to the far post, where Orban rose to head in the winner.
