Bellbrook playing for teammate - #Play4Payne

BELLBROOK -- On Janurary 19th Bellbrook players, coaches and family members got a phone call that made them fear the worst.
   On his way to church to see a friend get baptized junior Payne Sigman was in a car accident which has left him in a coma.
   After checking on their friend reactions were mixed from the team on whether or not they would play in upcoming basketball games. For Austin Hall it was almost instantaneous, that he wanted to play for his teammate that was in the hospital.
   The team hasn't missed a game since Payne's accident and Bellbrook won the first four games while the junior was in a coma.
   Not only are the Golden Eagles wearing shirts during warm-ups that say Play4Payne with his number (12), but opposing teams have been wearing similar shirts to show their support as well.

BLUE JACKETS-PREDATORS

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- James Wisniewski had a goal and assist to lead the Columbus Blue Jackets to a 3-0 preseason victory over the Nashville Predators on Monday night.

Curtis McElhinney made 36 saves in recording the shutout for the Blue Jackets, who improved to 5-1.

Artem Anisimov scored the game's first goal at 14:04 of the opening period. Wisniewski, who assisted on Anisimov's goal, doubled the lead at 4:21 of the second, and Jared Boll made it 3-0 at 7:53 of the third.

With the Blue Jackets on a power play, Nick Foligno was behind the Nashville net and found Anisimov in front for an easy tap-in against goalie Pekka Rinne. Foligno had two assists.

Rinne made 24 saves for Nashville, which dropped to 3-2 in the preseason.

LEBRON-OLYMPICS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- LeBron James says he has not decided whether he'll play in the 2016 Olympics.

James said Monday following the Cavaliers' practice that he's "nowhere near" deciding if he'll again play for Team USA in two years. Kevin Durant has reportedly said he will play for the American squad in Brazil, but James said following practice that "I haven't even thought about it too much. I haven't decided."

The 29-year-old James has played on three U.S. Olympic teams, winning gold medals in Beijing and London and a bronze in Athens.

James did not play for Team USA this summer as he wanted some time off and had another big decision to make, re-signing with the Cavaliers.

He will likely face more questions about his plans for two summers from now later this month when the Cavs play an exhibition in Rio de Janiero against Miami.

BENGALS-STILL'S DAUGHTER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Packages piled up in Devon Still's locker on Monday, gifts from people supporting the Bengals defensive lineman as he cares for his 4-year-old daughter fighting cancer.

Still spent his bye week encouraging Leah through surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from her abdomen. She has more chemotherapy ahead to deal with cancer in her bone marrow.

Still's story has gotten international attention. The Bengals are donating sales of his jersey to Children's Hospital in Cincinnati for pediatric cancer care and treatment. Nearly 10,000 jerseys have been sold, bringing the donation total to $1 million.

The support has helped Still and his daughter get through the tough time.

T25-OHIO ST-BIG TEN

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The Ohio State Buckeyes have scored 116 points in their last two wins and feel as though they're building some momentum heading into their Big Ten opener at Maryland on Sunday.

Still, they know they have a lot of work ahead of them after allowing three touchdown passes of at least 60 yards in last weekend's 50-28 victory over Cincinnati.

Coach Urban Meyer says the Buckeyes have shown great effort on defense, but mistakes are still being made. Co-coordinator Luke Fickell is happy with his players' development and also concedes there is plenty of room for improvement.

Right now, the No. 20 Buckeyes are dealing with some dramatic positives and negatives.
