The National Lacrosse League yesterday named Wings forward Athan Iannucci as the league's most valuable player. In his second season, Iannucci led the league in goals with an NLL-record 71 and points with 100. He also tied for the league lead in game-winning goals (five) with Sean Pollock of the Minnesota Swarm. Iannucci's 71 goals surpassed the record of 61 set by Minnesota's Gary Gait in 2003.

The National Basketball Association Players Association this morning filed a class action anti-trust suit in federal court in Newark, N.J., against the league and its 23 member teams. The suit asks the court to declare the NBA's draft, salary cap and right of first refusal invalid, and asks for damages to be paid to any players hurt by those mechanisms. "We're saying the anti-trust laws are being violated and that it is time to end those restrictions," said Larry Fleisher, general counsel to the Players Association.

With about 10 games remaining in the season, Cryhten Langhorne's name began to appear more and more frequently in Willingboro boys' basketball box scores. It seems that the junior had begun to impress Paul Collins with more than his superior leaping ability. Langhorne had tacked on a mid-range jump shot, which meant additional opportunities to score. If summer league play is any indication, Langhorne just might be primed to emerge as a bona fide scorer. The 6-foot-2 senior leads the Chimeras in the Cherry Hill Recreation league with a 25 points-per-game average.

Parity should be the name of the game in the race for the Colonial Conference field hockey championship this season. With such teams as Collingswood, Gateway, Haddonfield and Haddon Heights boasting experienced lineups, the league race figures to be tight all the way. And those teams will not be able to rest easy, because Audubon, Haddon Township and Woodbury seem capable of pulling surprises. Collingswood, which claimed the league title with a 17-1 record and was 19-2 overall last season, has nine returning letter-winners under coach Sandra Ritter.

Ruling Over Monarchs, Giants and Stars Umpiring in the Negro Leagues & Beyond By Bob Motley with Byron Motley Sports Publishing LLC. 212 pp. $16.95 I would love to sit down for an hour or so with Bob Motley and jaw about our memories of old-time baseball. He spent much of his life umpiring in the Negro Leagues, and relates his experiences there to his son, author Byron Motley. I lived across the street from Philadelphia's Shibe Park, and knew most major league players before I started school.

Women's Professional Soccer announced Monday that it has suspended the 2012 season due to "legal issues" and an "ongoing dispute" with a former owner. WPS was formed in 2009 following the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. The Independence, owned by David Halstead and coached by Paul Riley, last season lost in the WPS championship game for the second straight year. "This is what responsible business enterprises do, and it's what the WPS and Philadelphia Independence are going to do," Halstead said in a statement.

Frustrate and dominate. That describes what Villa Joseph Marie has done to soccer opponents in the Athletic Association of Catholic Academies this season. Whether it was the cat-quick moves of striker Megan Verdeur, the acrobatic saves by goalkeeper Kerriann Kane, or the pesky play by midfielder/defender Alysha Mallon, the Jems left no doubt about their league superiority. Last night was different. But as dominant teams do, they still found a way to win. Steph Lawall's penalty kick in the 78th minute gave Villa Joseph Marie a 2-1 victory over St. Basil Academy in the league championship match at La Salle University.

The Swarthmore Academy Knights showed on Tuesday that they can learn their lesson well. Rather than allow a week's respite from game action to bother them, they released that bottled up energy on a Tri-County Independent School opponent, Kimberton School. The Knights (9-6 overall) chalked up their fifth league victory in seven games with the 73-53 win over Kimberton (2-4 league, 2-4 overall). Swarthmore coach Mark Jordan said his team concentrated on mental preparation against the Knights - something it had omitted in a nonleague contest against Mercy Vocational a week ago. In last week's game, the Knights lost by more than 30 points.

PRESEASON MEDIA polls are nothing more than hopefully educated projections and a place to start. A year ago, coming off a 2-8 season and with a new coach in longtime assistant Ray Priore, Penn's football team was picked to finish sixth in the Ivy League, the lowest it had been voted in more than two decades. So the Quakers proceeded to win their last six games - which meant going on the road in November and handing defending champion Harvard its lone loss - to get their first title since 2012.

Remember David Buchanan? He was named the International League's pitcher of the week after allowing just two runs in his last three starts. The righthander struck out 13 batters and walked six over the 22-inning stretch. He has a 4.05 ERA this season in 19 starts. Buchanan will have a good chance of starting for the Phillies in September as the team could be forced to shut down some of its young pitchers because of innings constraints. . . . Darin Ruf hit his team-leading 13th homer on Tuesday night.

Bringing a National Lacrosse League team back to Philadelphia is a top priority for the league, commissioner Nick Sakiewicz said Thursday. Since the Wings moved to Connecticut in 2014, Philadelphia has been without an NLL team. "It was a legendary team, arguably should have never left here. They brought in great numbers," said Sakiewicz, a former CEO and operating partner of Major League Soccer's Union. "They had a lot of relevance in the city. " Sakiewicz was named the NLL's commissioner in January and is in his first offseason with the league.

" Dorenbos said he doesn't think there will be many conflicts between his football schedule and the schedule for the show, which is shot in Los Angeles. "The team's been great, the network's been great. We're going to find a way to make it work," said Dorenbos, the oldest Eagle at 36. "It's been a dream come true.

Tommy Joseph stepped into the batting cage last month at Citizens Bank Park and let his friends search for the source of his struggles. The Phillies first baseman started his major-league career with a stretch strong enough to push Ryan Howard to the bench. Then he began to sink. Joseph limped into July with eight hits in his last 65 at-bats. Joseph's start was starting to look like a flash. And that's when the advice of teammates Cameron Rupp and Cody Asche helped lift Joseph out of the first slump of his major-league career.

Digit Murphy and Aronda Kirby knew there was a chance to do something different. They were convinced their idea - create a new blueprint for successful women's sports leagues - could work. They just needed to find the right sport. Murphy and Kirby had spent the last three years as the head coach and general manager, respectively, of the Boston Blades in the Canadian Women's Hockey League. To create a small amount of revenue, the Blades had to sell candy bars and raffle tickets at games.

LAS VEGAS – The 76ers capped their NBA Summer League play with a win, defeating the Miami Heat, 74-66, Friday night in a consolation game at the Thomas & Mack Center. "I just wanted to finish with a win," said Simmons, the first overall pick in the last month's NBA draft. "So I came out here aggressive and I tried to take over the game. " Ben Simmons finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, and six turnovers after missing the past two games to rest. The 6-foot-10, 243-pound point forward once again dazzled the crowd with his playmaking ability.

LAS VEGAS - The NBA Summer League is winding down, and the 76ers will soon go their separate ways. So far, it appears as if Ben Simmons is as talented as advertized. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, while not a finished product, has so far justified being the 24th overall pick in last month's NBA draft. T.J. McConnell has shown why the Sixers hold him in such high regard, but Nik Stauskas once again has struggled to display the consistent shooting touch the Sixers thought they were acquiring in a trade with the Sacramento Kings last summer.

The best part about minor-league baseball? It's half game, half game center. Minor-league baseball is more than a training ground for future big-leaguers - it's also a great value for families looking for a day or night out. Consider the experience of Timothy Field from Palmer Township, in the Lehigh Valley: He brings his 8-year-old son to games in Allentown when the boy visits during the summer. "I love the time here," Field says, adding that, while attending any sporting event with his son is special, there's something even more special about being together at a baseball game.
