    导出博客文章BOULDER, Colo. -- When Colorado coach Tad Boyle draws up Xs and Os this season,
    he will actually have X.Xavier Johnson, the do-everything player whos known
    simply as X to his teammates, returns to the court after missing last season
    with a torn left Achilles tendon. Hes one of four fifth-year seniors trying to
    lead the Buffaloes to their fifth NCAA Tournament appearance in six seasons.Not
    just lead them there, either.Elite Eight, at least, said Johnson, whos 10 points
    away from becoming the 33rd player in Buffaloes history to reach the 1,000-point
    mark. I think we can do it, if we play together.Just dont mention such chatter
    in front of Boyle.If I had to describe our team in one word, it would be
    overrated, Boyle said. Were not consistent enough to be considered an upper-tier
    Pac-12 team right now. Thats today, October whatever. Were a work in
    progress.Under Boyle, the Buffaloes have gone from a team that rarely competed
    for a conference title to one thats consistently near the top. His squad was
    22-12 last season and returns an experienced nucleus in seniors Josh Fortune and
    Wesley Gordon, along with junior George King and Dominique Collier. Not only
    that, but Johnson is rounding back into top form and Derrick White, a Division
    II All-American transfer from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, makes
    his black-and-gold debut.But theres also this: Replacing Josh Scott, one of the
    best big men in Buffs history.Can we replace his leadership? Im not sure of that
    right now, Boyle said. The only way to find out is when adversity hits.Gordon is
    raising his hand to be that quiet leader. And Johnson wants to be more of the
    vocal director. Hes anxious to get going after tearing his Achilles while
    working out in April 2015.Johnson nearly made it back before the end of last
    season, but decided against it because, I didnt want to go out there and
    half-step stuff and not play to my fullest.Things to know before Colorados
    season opener against Sacramento State on Nov. 11:THE TRANSFER: Boyle isnt one
    to typically hype up a player. With White, he made an exception.All I can say is
    hes worth the price of admission, Boyle said.White scored 1,912 points and had
    343 assists for Colorado-Colorado Springs, before transferring to Boulder and
    sitting out last season. He made the switch to see what he could accomplish on
    the Division I level.It was hard to leave the program that did everything for
    me, White said. There are always doubters who say, `You cant play. You did a lot
    at Division II but it was Division II. Prove those doubters wrong.THE
    YOUNGSTERS: Colorado has five freshmen on the roster, including 6-foot-4 guard
    Bryce Peters out of La Puente, California. He averaged 22 points his senior
    year.The freshmen are certainly going to help us infuse some energy and talent,
    Boyle said. But how much are they going to contribute? How many minutes are they
    going to get? Were in a nice situation because we dont have to count on them,
    but whatever they give us is almost like a B-12 shot in the arm.WEIGHT &
    SEE: Johnson spent quite a bit of time in the weight room as he mended from his
    torn Achilles. He went from benching 185 pounds 12 times before his injury to 19
    reps of that same weight.It helped me get into a pro body so I can play against
    bigger, stronger players, Johnson said.HUDDLE UP: In years past, the football
    team was scuffling at this point and the talk around campus turned to hoops. Not
    this season. The Buffs are competing for a Pac-12 title and that success on the
    football field inspires the basketball players.Its exciting and makes us want to
    do the same, said Collier, who led the team in assists and steals last
    season.KING OF THE CORNER: King was voted the leagues most improved player after
    leading the Pac-12 in 3-point percentage. He was 68 of 149 from behind the
    3-point line.He is a good player. We all know that, Boyle said. Now, what does
    it take to become a great player? Great players make those around them better.
    Thats Georges challenge now.

    . Michell Burger, a woman who lives on an estate next to

    in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14 last year, when Pistorius killed Reeva
    Steenkamp by shooting four times through a door in his bathroom. KANSAS CITY,
    Mo. -- Seattle has struggled to win on the road over the last month, losing 10
    straight capped by a ninth-inning meltdown in the Mariners series-opener against
    the Kansas City Royals.Some strong pitching and a bit of fortune helped them
    break their long road skid Friday night.Hisashi Iwakuma pitched into the seventh
    inning, Seattle scored the go-ahead runs on Yordano Venturas wild pitch and the
    Mariners held on to beat the World Series champions 3-1 to even the four-game
    set.Iwakuma (9-6) allowed one run, five hits and three walks over 6 2/3 innings,
    striking out six. He kept the Royals off balance with his usual herky-jerky
    delivery, the only run he allowed coming on Cheslor Cuthberts base hit in the
    fourth inning.Overall I was able to make good pitches, location-wise, and
    execute when I needed to, change speeds, go back and forth, Iwakuma said through
    an interpreter. Especially with the breaking ball I was able to go from strike
    to ball and they were chasing those pitches and it made it very helpful from my
    end.Steve Cishek, who blew the save the previous night, allowed Salvador Perezs
    homer in the ninth before finishing off the inning. It was his 21st save of the
    season.Yesterday was tough. I felt really good yesterday. Its just baseball, he
    said. I wanted a chance to go back out there and, if I had the chance, give the
    team the win to make up for it. It got a little sketchy there. I didnt think he
    hit that that well, but, you know, I was able to finish it off.Ventura (6-6) was
    nearly as stingy as Iwakuma, giving up only a sacrifice fly to Ketel Marte in
    the fifth, before things unraveled for him after Seth Smiths single and Robinson
    Canos double in the sixth.Nelson Cruz stepped to the plate and nearly gave
    Seattle a three-run homer, sending a pitch soaring down the right-field line.
    First base umpire CB Bucknor initially signaled home run, then signaled foul
    ball, then decided that he wasnt quite sure and met with the rest of the
    umpires.I lost it. I think that happened to the umpire, too, Cruz said. I had no
    clue.After a review, tthe ball was declared foul and Nelson dug in
    again.ddddddddddddhis time, Venturas pitch got past Perez and bounded away,
    allowing Smith to score from third base and tie the game 1-all. Perez threw the
    ball away trying to get him out at the plate, allowing Cano to also score -- the
    star catcher was given an error on the play.I was pitching good up to that
    point, I got two quick outs in that inning, Ventura said. I lost concentration
    and got a little bit behind the count, gave up a couple of hits and then came
    that play.The Mariners used three relievers to get the game to Cishek, who
    bounced back from Perezs home run to retire Paulo Orlando and Cuthbert and help
    snap Seattles road losing streak.Thats the beauty of baseball, Cishek said. You
    play so many games that if you have a bad outing you have an opportunity to get
    back out there the next night.HOME SWEET HOMERoyals manager Ned Yost has given
    up trying to explain his clubs bizarre home-road split -- they began the day
    28-11 at Kauffman Stadium, best in the majors, but are just 16-30 away from the
    spacious ballpark. They average five runs at home and just over three on the
    road. Its puzzling, Yost said, but theres not anything you can point to other
    than were just not producing.TRAINERS ROOMFelix Hernandez will return July 20
    against the White Sox. He is slated for a rehab start with Class-A Everett on
    Sunday. When asked what directions he would give Hernandez upon his return,
    manager Scott Servais replied: Go pitch. Have fun. Hernandez went on the DL on
    June 1 with a right calf strain.UP NEXTRoyals RHP Edinson Volquez tries to
    continue his dominance of Seattle when the teams continue their four-game set
    Saturday. Volquez is 4-0 with a 2.38 ERA in six career starts against the
    Mariners. Hell face Mariners LHP Wade Miley, who is 0-2 since his return from a
    left shoulder injury. Miley is 4-1 with a 2.91 ERA against the Royals, throwing
    a shutout against them on April 30.
