Duke and Butler will meet again on the hardwood next season, eight months after their classic performance in the national championship game.

The two schools will play December 4 in a highly anticipated, much-publicized regular-season game at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Blue Devils won their fourth NCAA Title in Indianapolis on April 5 by beating the fan favorite Bulldogs 61-59. as Gordon Hayward’s potential game-winning 3-point shot from halfcourt bounced off the rim.

The Blue Devils have a long, successful history at the arena, going 18-1 and winning five NCAA regional finals there. Butler has never played at the Meadowlands, former home of the New Jersey Nets of the NBA.

Both teams will start the season amongst the favorites to return to the national championship game. The Blue Devils return star players Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith.

Gordon Hayward declared early for the NBA draft but has not signed with a agent and could region Shelvin Mack, Matt Howard and Ronald Nored in the Butler Bulldogs lineup.

Ryo Ishikawa shot a 12-under 58-the lowest score ever on a major tour-to win The Crowns tournament  on Sunday for his seventh Tour title in Togo, Japan.

The 18-year-old Ishikawa tapped in for par on the par-4 18th after his 15-foot birdie try slid just inches by the cup. He had 12 birdies in his bogey-free round on the 6,545-yard Nagoya Golf course.

After opening with rounds of 68, 70 and 71 to fall six strokes behind third-round leader Shigeki Maruyama, Ishikawa birdied nine of the first 11 holes Sunday. He added birdies on numbers 14-16 and closed with two pars to finish at 13-under 267, five strokes ahead of Hiroyuki Fijita and Australia’s Paul Sheehan.

The 2009 Japan Tour money leader chipped in from 10 yards for his fifth birdie of the day on the par-4 sixth and went on to make four birdies in a row from the eighth.

Ishikawa broke the Japan Tour record of 59 set by Marashiro Kuramoto in the first round of the 2003 Acom International. On the PGA Tour, Al Geiberger, Chip Beck and David Duval share the record at 59. Annika Sorenstam also had a 59 on the LPGA Tour.

Ishikawa earned $255,000 for his first victory of the season. He first won on the Japan Tour as a 15-year-old amateur at the 2007 Munsingwear Open. In April at the Masters, he missed the cut by a stroke.

Billy Wagner gave the Atlanta Braves Monday an early notice that he will be retiring at the end of the season. The decision was made because he wants to spend more time with his family.

Wagner and his wife, Sarah, have three sons and a daughter, ages 3 to 11. He said he’s going to be a Little League coach with his kids.

The 38-year-old Wagner plans to retire even though he has a $6.5 million option to play in 2011.

The 2011 option will kick in if he finishes 50 games this season. He’s 1-0 with 2 saves and a 2.00 ERA in his first season as the Atlanta closer.

Wagner has shown that he has made a full recovery from his elbow surgery. The left-hander’s fastball still hits the between 95-98 on the radar gun.

Wagner is sixth all-time with 387 career saves, including two in 2010. He is going after John Franco’s record of 424 saves by a left-hander. During spring training, Wagner said the record motivates him, but now is saying he’ll retire even if he fails to tie or break the mark this season.

Billy made his major league debut with Houston in 1995 and remained with the Astros until the end of 2003 when he set a career-high in saves with 44. He was the closer in Philadelphia for two years before closing for the New York Mets for four years. He had elbow surgery in September, 2008, and returned with the Mets in 2009 before he was traded to the Boston Red Sox.

He has a career ERA of 2.38 in 791 games.

Laynce Nix belted a solo, pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the 11th inning Monday night, powering Cincinnati to a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets and keeping the Reds undefeated in extra innings.

Nix hit a high drive off of Manny Acosta (1-1) that barely cleared the wall in right-center field with one out for his first career game-ending homer.

Nick Masset (3-1) pitched the last two innings, giving up two singles in the 11th. Then Cincinnati pulled out another game at the end–eight of their 13 wins have come in their final at-bat. They are 3-0 in extra innings.

Drew Stubbs had a leadoff homer in the first inning for the Reds off Oliver Perez this season. Joey Votto had an RBI single off the left-hander, who lasted six innings and remained winless in six starts  since August 18, 2009.

Brett Cecil (mlb)

Left-hander Brett Cecil took a perfect game into the seventh inning for Toronto and ended up winning 5-1 over Cleveland Monday night. Cecil allowed one hit in eight innings pitched, striking out a career-high 10.

Cecil (2-1) lost the perfect game when he walked Grady Sizemore with one out in the seventh. He then gave a base-on-balls to Shin-Soo Choo but came back to strike out Austin Kearns before Jhonny Peralta lined a 2-2 pitch into left field, scoring Sizemore, making the score 4-1.

Toronto hit three home runs off Mitch Talbot (3–2), giving the Blue Jays an AL-leading 41 (Jose Bautista, Travis Snider and John Buck).
