Wade scores

31 points

SACRAMENTO, California (AP):

Dwayne Wade knows he's lost some of his athleticism. But the Chicago Bulls' veteran guard hasn't lost the ability to make clutch shots.

Wade scored 31 points, including the final seven for Chicago to rescue the Bulls and help them hold off the Sacramento Kings 112-107 on Monday night.

The 35-year-old Wade had 11 points in the fourth quarter and hit the biggest shot of the game, a tiebreaking 20-footer to put Chicago ahead for good at 109-107 with 13 seconds left.

Husbands up

for top award

TORONTO, Canada (CMC):

Barbadian riding ace Patrick Husbands is once again up for Canada's top jockeys' honour, the Sovereign Award.

The 43-year-old has been nominated along with Eurico Rosa da Silva, Luis Contreras and Rafael Hernandez, ahead of the annual Sovereign Awards Ceremony which is scheduled for April 13.

Husbands finished the 2016 season last December third in the jockeys standing with 101 wins and winnings of CAN$.6.3 million. He also carded 15 stakes wins.

Medel set

for Inter extension

Chilean Gary Medel will extend his contract with Italian Serie A side Inter Milan this month. He is likely to sign up to 2020, according to reports.

The 29-year-old joined the Nerazzurri from Cardiff City in 2014, and has impressed in a centre-back role this season, as well as his more familiar central midfield position.

Medel's current deal expires in the summer of 2018, but the player is expected to add two years to that agreement.
