FOR THE HOLIDAYS
USADA to press FINA
Actively seeking to avoid the kind of doping scandal
engulfing track and field, USA Swimming is teaming
up with the man who brought down Lance Arm-
US Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart will join
former USA Swimming president Jim Wood for a meet-
ing with FINA executive director Cornel Marculescu in
Lausanne, Switzerland, next month to check in on the
anti-doping actions of the sport s governing body."This
is an effort to see if we can understand what s going
on and maybe why certain decisions were made the
way they were," USA Swimming executive director
Chuck Wielgus told The Associated Press on Wednesday
in a telephone interview from his office in Colorado.
Unlike with the IAAF and the ongoing corruption
scandal at FIFA, though, there is no explicit concern
about the people in charge. "We ve been extremely sup-
portive of FINA s leadership," Wielgus said. "(Marculescu)
was very quick to agree to a meeting so we were very
pleased by that. We saw that as a very positive response."
The concern lies with the way doping cases involving
China s Sun Yang, Australia s Kylie Palmer and Russia s
Yuliya Efimova were handled. USA Swimming wants
to ensure the likes of Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky
compete against only clean athletes at the Olympics in
Rio de Janeiro. "There are two great concerns we have
about the Rio Games. One is that there is clean com-
petition. And No. 2 is that the water is clean for open
water swimmers," Wielgus said, adding that water
quality will not be discussed in the meeting with Mar-
Sun, the gold medalist in the 400- and 1,500-meter
freestyle at the London Olympics, served a three-month
doping suspension last year for using a banned stimulant.
His punishment began immediately after he tested pos-
itive in May 2014, but Chinese officials kept the test
quiet for six months and FINA also waited until late
November to announce the sanction.
Sun was then named male swimmer of the meet at
the world championships in Kazan, Russia, in August.
Curry scores 40 as
Warriors top Hornets
broadcaster Dell Curry told his son
before Wednesday night s match, "do
not ruin my night."
"He didn t make any guarantees,"
Curry said with a smile. Actually,
Stephen Curry ignored his father alto-
gether. The reigning MVP scored 40
points in three quarters as the Golden
State Warriors easily defeated the Hor-
nets 116-99 to extend the best start
in NBA history to 20-0.
On a night when the Hornets hon-
ored Dell Curry, the franchise s career
scoring leader, with a "key to Buzz City,"
it was his oldest son who stole the spot-
light by hitting 14 of 18 shots from the
field and going eight for 11 from three-
Stephen Curry, who grew up in Char-
lotte, scored 28 points in the pivotal
third quarter, including his team s final
24. He hit 10 of 11 shots from the field,
including all five threes---many from
well beyond the arc and in the face of
a defender---to help the Warriors build
a 21-point cushion.
He sat out the entire fourth quarter
due to the big lead and didn t get a shot
to break his career high of 54.
Nicolas Batum led Charlotte with 17
points and eight rebounds.
The Lakers had a 108-104 win over
the Wizards, with Kobe Bryant scoring
12 of his season-high 31 points in the
fourth quarter of his final game in
Julius Randle had 15 points and a
career-best 19 rebounds for the Lakers
(3-15), who ended a seven-game losing
streak. Jordan Clarkson added 18 points
as Los Angeles finished a stretch of four
matches in five days.
Bryant played 36 minutes in his sec-
ond game since announcing his plans
to retire after this season, his 20th in
the NBA. He left the Verizon Center
floor to thunderous applause from what
remained from a crowd of 20,356,
Washington s third sellout of the sea-
At Atlanta, Kyle Lowry scored 22 of
his season-high 31 points in the fourth
quarter as Toronto rallied from 17 down
in the third to beat the Raptors 96-86.
Lowry overcame flu-like symptoms
that forced him from the game in the
second period. He returned to begin
the third, but didn t build momentum
until the fourth when Toronto outscored
the Hawks 39-20.
Elsewhere, the Pacers extending their
winning streak to six matches with a
103-91 victory over the Clippers, the
Spurs maintained their unbeaten run
at home with a 95-70 win over the
Bucks, the Rockets rallied from a dou-
ble-digit deficit to beat the Pelicans
108-101, the Bulls beat the Pelicans 99-
90, the Pistons beat the Suns 127-122
in overtime and the Knicks had a 99-
87 win over the 76ers. (AP)
