NEW YORK -- The U. Sammie Coates Jersey .S. has picked the 12 players it believes can defend its world basketball title. The Americans kept Derrick Rose and cut All-Star Damian Lillard and three others early Saturday morning, getting their roster down to the limit for the FIBA World Cup of Basketball. Though team officials had previously said they might carry extra players when they left for Spain on Saturday, and final rosters arent due until next Friday, the Americans decided there was no need to wait. Kyle Korver, Gordon Hayward and Chandler Parsons also were cut, shortly after the Americans beat Puerto Rico 112-86 in their final home exhibition game. "Since taking over the USA Basketball mens national team program in 2005, this was without doubt the most difficult selection process weve gone through," USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo said in a statement. "I cant stress enough the outstanding effort and commitment that has been given by each finalist. "I also want to make it clear that this is not just about talent -- each player is incredibly talented and each player offered us unique skills. In the end it was about assembling the best team, selecting guys who we felt would be able to best play the kind of style we envision this team playing." The rest of the roster is: Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, DeMarcus Cousins, Klay Thompson, Andre Drummond, Rudy Gay, DeMar DeRozan, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee. The Americans can still change the roster in event of injury or withdrawal before Friday, a day before the World Cup opener, which is why they originally considered bringing extra players to Spain. "We feel that its better to go with 12 because thats really difficult on anybody if theyre not going to be on the team to travel that far," coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the game at Madison Square Garden. Lillard, Drummond, Hayward and DeRozan didnt play in the game, but Krzyzewski stressed afterward the final decisions on the roster hadnt been made -- and it turned out two got tickets on the plane. "Im excited about the 12 players selected and feel we have excellent versatility and the makings of a really good defensive team," Krzyzewski said. Rose came off the bench and scored six points in 14 minutes. He had sat out the previous game and a couple of practices this week after feeling soreness following last Saturdays exhibition opener against Brazil, his first action since missing most of the last two seasons after a pair of knee surgeries. But he proved he was healthy enough to make his second U.S. team, having played for the Americans when they won the former world basketball championship in 2010. "These guys want to play with him. Thats part of getting back is to be around a group of peers," Krzyzewski said. Curry scored 20 points, while Harden and Gay had 13 points apiece for the Americans, who will play a final exhibition game in Spain against Slovenia and open the World Cup next Saturday against Finland. The U.S. led 52-47 after Thompsons buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of an entertaining first half before a divided crowd that included plenty of Puerto Rican fans. Knicks All-Star and two-time U.S. Olympic gold medallist Carmelo Anthony, who is part Puerto Rican, was in the front row along with golfer Rory McIlroy and tennis star Andy Murray. The Americans lost a number of key players this summer but are still good enough to defend their world title with the roster that remains, though they are vulnerable, which Puerto Rico proved by staying right with them for 20 minutes. But they can also turn close games into blowouts in a hurry, which they did by outscoring Puerto Rico 14-2 to open the second half, with some energetic plays from Faried on both ends, to open a 66-49 lead. "The team is looking great," Puerto Rico guard Carlos Arroyo said. "A lot of young guys motivated to represent their country with a lot of pride and honour, and youve got to give respect to that." Puerto Ricos veteran backcourt of Arroyo and J.J. Barea has loads of international and NBA experience, and they didnt wilt under relentless U.S. pressure the way so many other teams do. Former Knicks forward Renaldo Balkman also started for the Puerto Ricans, who play in Group B along with regional rival Argentina, Croatia, Greece, Senegal and the Philippines. Barea scored 16 points and Arroyo had 15. "Not every game is going to be pretty when we get to Spain, so this is a good test for us and a good experience for everybody on the roster," Curry said.

Appearing on TSN 690 Monday afternoon, Mike Babcock said he had conversations with both P.K. Subban and Carey Price about those on-ice traits during Hockey Canadas summer orientation camp. Mike Babcock: McGill experience, P.PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- Cordy Glenns long-awaited return to practice on Saturday is not an indication that the Buffalo Bills starting left tackle is anywhere close to being ready to play. Far from it, coach Doug Marrone said hours after Glenn passed his physical and was added to the active roster following an undisclosed illness. "Were going to take it very, very slowly," said Marrone, of a player whos been sidelined since training camp opened July 20. "You wont seem him participating in any team (drills) for a while. And well see how he responds, because I really dont know." And Marrone didnt rule out the possibility of Glenn not being ready for the start of the regular season. He instead noted that rookie seventh-round draft pick Seantrel Henderson has so far shown hes capable of taking over the job on an interim basis if necessary. Glenns status has been a big question mark since tests revealed he had an issue, which the Bills have been careful not to disclose. He was placed on the teams active/non-football illness list a few days before camp opened and was limited to light exercises on the sideline. On Saturday, Glenn was at least finally able to take the field after missing the first 12 sessions and two preseason games. He took part in walk-through drills with the starters to open practice, and then worked out individually on blocking techniques after the two-hour session. Glenn would only refer to his illness as a medical issue, and said its too early to determine when hell be ready to play. "Theres still a little bit of time. Right now Im just focused on trying to help the team out and getting back comfortable again," he said. "It was frustrating not being out there with the fellas, but Im just trying to knock the rust off." Selected in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Georgia, Glenn has been the Bills starting left tackle since his rookie season. Aside from Glenns absence, the Bills starting line has been in fluxx through most of camp with the exception of centre Eric Wood. Martinas Rankin Texans Jersey. There are open competitions at both guard spots as well as right tackle. The Bills (1-1) returned to camp in suburban Rochester a day after a 20-18 preseason win at Carolina. Marrone was comparatively more upbeat after his teams latest performance than he was in the days following a 17-13 loss to the New York Giants in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame Game last weekend. Rather than issuing terse, one-word answers as he did on Tuesday, Marrone said he saw progress, particularly on offence and starting quarterback EJ Manuel. "We did some things better," Marrone said. "I was happy with that. I thought (Manuel) did a nice job, gave us some opportunities to score. And weve just got to take advantage of that." The Bills offence still lacks finish. Though Manuel helped the offence gain 126 net yards and six first downs through three series, the Bills managed just a field goal. And that included giving up the ball on downs at the Carolina 2 after running back Fred Jackson was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-1. Converting on third downs was also an issue. Buffalo converted 2 of 8 chances in the first half, and 4 of 12 overall. "Obviously, its a concern because it affects the way you win," Marrone said. "Those are things that we need to work on and create a high focus in those areas because thats what playoff teams do." NOTES: In five series under Manuel, the starting offence has come away with two field goals despite three drives inside an opponents 20. ...
