MONTREAL -- Rachel Homans Canada team defeated Val Sweetings Alberta rink 8-6 to win a second consecutive Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Sunday night. The Ottawa team of Homan, lead Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk and third Emma Miskew, defended the Canadian womens curling championship they won last year in Kingston, Ont. At 13-0, they are the first since Linda Moores rink in 1985 to go undefeated at the tournament. Homan took early leads all week and did it again by posting three points in the second end, although Sweeting answered with a hit for two in the third. Sweeting was a tad strong on a raise in the fourth and Homan came around the right side to hit for two. Alberta got one back in the fifth. Canada was in trouble in the sixth when a Sweeting draw left Alberta with three stones near the button, but Homan scattered them with a hit to salvage one point. Sweeting drew for two in the seventh to close the gap to one point, only to see Homan pick off two Sweeting draws to score two in the eighth. A Sweeting bid for a double takeout fell short and the Alberta skip was forced to draw for one in the ninth, handing Homan the hammer and a two-point lead going into the final end. Canada ran them out of rocks to clinch the victory. Prime Minister Stephen Harper witnessed the win from the grandstands at the Maurice Richard Arena. He was wearing a Canadian Olympic team jacket and posing for pictures with fans between ends. Harper has been to the mens Brier, but a curling official said it was his first visit to the Scotties Manitobas Chelsea Carey won the bronze medal game 7-3 over Saskatchewans Stefanie Lawton. It offered some consolation for not reaching the final. "The disappointment doesnt go away, but you want to at least salvage what you can out of it," said Carey. "I dont agree with this even being a game. I never have. "The Page (playoff) system builds in a bronze medallist. But, as much as I disagree with the game, its nice to win a game to get there." Carey made two perfect draws to score two in the eighth end for a 4-3 lead. Lawton blanked the ninth and had the hammer going into the final end, but then disaster struck. Second Sherri Singler threw a flash, third Sherry Anderson hit a guard and soon there were five Manitoba stones ringing the button. Lawton tried to sneak in an angled raise with her last shot, but it couldnt get through and Carey got a steal of three. "It was worth a try,"said Lawton. "It was there...I had to stick it right on the nose. I couldnt roll off. But it was a bit too hard. We didnt leave ourselves in a great position to score one that end. "It would have been nice to finish with a medal, but Im proud of our girls. It was a great tournament for us. Its unfortunate how it ended." The winning team splits $25,500 and gets gold rings with a diamond, while the silver medallists get $15,500 plus a gold ring with a ruby. Careys squad gets $12,000 and a gold ring with an emerald. Because of her repeat win, the Homan teams diamonds will be twice the size of last year. Lawtons side gets $7,000. All 12 teams get $4,167 for wearing title sponsor crests. The winner usually gets $40,000 from the Own The Podium program, but in Olympic years that goes to the team that qualifies for the Winter Games.

Hydro Flask Hinta .com) - The Minnesota Twins made it official on Wednesday, announcing the signing of outfielder Torii Hunter to a one-year contract.College Station, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - This time it took two overtimes for Kentucky to remain undefeated. The top-ranked Wildcats pulled out an overtime win Tuesday in their SEC opener against Ole Miss and on Saturday needed a second extra period in their first road conference game, escaping with a 70-64 triumph over Texas A&M. Tyler Ulis drained a 3-pointer with 1:25 remaining for his only points of the game to give Kentucky a 66-63 lead. Kourtney Roberson answered with a free throw to draw A&M within two and Trey Lyles traveled at the other end to give the Aggies a chance to go ahead or tie with 30 seconds left. Danuel House went for the lead, but his 3-point try missed and Dakari Johnson pulled down the rebound for Kentucky. Johnson made two from the line with 14.7 seconds left for a four-point margin and Peyton Allens attempt from beyond the arc also came up empty for the Aggies. Two more Devin Booker free throws with 8.2 seconds to play sealed it for the Wildcats. Booker finished with 18 points for Kentucky (15-0, 2-0 SEC), which many thought might take advantage of a so-called weakened SEC to waltz into March with an unblemished record. The Wildcats blew through their non-conference schedule with 12 wins by double-digits before an eight-point victory at arch- rival Louisville to close out December. Then came a nine-day layoff and the tougher-than-expected 89-86 win over Ole Miss. Aaron Harrison scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Wildcats before fouling out in the second extra period on Saturday. Karl-Anthony Towns fouled out in the first extra session, finishing with nine points and nine rebounds. Johnson contributed eight points and nine boards in the victory. House scored a career-high 25 points and added nine rebounds for Texas A&M (9-5, 0-2), which was coming off a 65-44 drubbing on Tuesday at Alabama in its SEC opener. Roberson added 11 points and eight boards in defeat. The Aggies were clearly no pushover for the Wildcats. They scored the first nine points of the game and led by as many as 11 in the first half before finally coughing up the big cushion in the second half. Kentucky, though, couldnt hold a seven-point lead late, managging just one field goal over the final nine minutes of regulation.dddddddddddd Texas A&M had the ball down 53-51 with just over 90 seconds left and Antwan Spaces try from beyond the arc hit the rim twice before coming down in the hands of Roberson for another chance. House, though, also missed from 3-point range and the rebound went out of bounds to Texas A&M, but Alex Carusos tough layup attempt missed. Kentucky went the other way with a 2-on-1 break, but Andrew Harrisons layup rolled off the rim with 22 seconds to play and the Aggies broke the other way. House drew a block on his way to the basket and made both free throws to knot the contest at 53-53 with 18 seconds remaining. The Wildcats struggled to find a shot and called timeout with 1.3 seconds to play. Texas A&M then countered with a timeout to adjust its defense and Aaron Harrisons attempt from well beyond the arc hit the back of the rim as time expired. Bookers layup in the first minute of the extra period gave Kentucky the lead and was the only field goal of the first extra period. Texas A&M managed three free throws, the last two by House with 1:58 remaining, for a 56-55 edge. Tavario Miller made the second of two from the line with 27.3 seconds left for a two-point advantage, but Lyles connected on two from the stripe with 6.1 seconds remaining to tie it and Alex Robinsons 30-footer wasnt close to force an additional period. Game Notes Robinson scored 10 for Texas A&M, which shot 33.3 percent from the field and held Kentucky to just 28.1 percent shooting ... The Aggies made only 2-of-15 3-point tries and connected on just 16-of-30 from the line ... The Wildcats made 9-of-28 from beyond the arc and drained 28-of-35 from the stripe ... The Harrison twins combined to make just 6-of-30 shots for Kentucky ... Texas A&M fell to 2-5 all-time against Kentucky.
