Konrad Warzycha, a former soccer player at Ohio State University, made his Columbus Crew recently when he appeared in the 85th minute vs. D.C. United.

Konrad, playing for his father, Robert, marked the first time since September 14, 2002 that a Crew player with the last name Warzycha played in front of the Crew Stadium crowd for the Black & Gold during a regular-season game.

Per the Elias Sports Bureau, Robert and Konrad became the second father (coach) / son (player) tandems in the same season in MLS history, joining Bob and Michael Bradley in the 2004 and 2005 season with New York.

No surgery for Timberwolves’ star Love

The Minnesota Timberwolves have announced that star forward Kevin Love will not require surgery to repair two broken bones in his right hand.

The former UCLA Bruin met with specialists in New York a couple of days ago after breaking his hand while doing knuckle pushups in a morning practice session. Doctors told Love that the injury can heal itself without surgery.

He is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The T-Wolves will definitely miss Love, who is a rebounding machine. Head Coach Rick Adelman said that he’ll experiment with different players at Love’s position realizing that the same production is tough to match.

2012 OLYMPICS: U.S. boxing team sees winning streak end

But Hooper came out of his corner very aggressive, landing a flurry of punches with a 1:30 to go in the round. The referee paused the bout for a standing eight count.

Browne’s defeat was the first for the United States in five fights in London.

Browne came into the Olympics more than capable of winning. Browne is a 3x NYC Golden Gloves Champion in two different weight classes.

Former Dayton Flyers star Johnson, getting a good look from NBA teams

Former Columbus Brookhaven and Dayton Flyers swingman, Chris Johnson has been getting a good look from NBA scouts and general managers as a possible pick in the second round of the upcoming NBA Draft.

Johnson, who was a key performer for the Flyers the past four years, averaged 12.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game this past season. It also helped him to have played with NBA Development League player Chris Wright, who received national attention and NBA scouts during his career at UD and in the process, they were able to see the talents of Johnson.

There is some discrepency of Johnson being 6-feet-6-inches tall or 6’3. One of Johnson’s friends in Columbus told me recently that he is every bit of 6’6.

Johnson has been very impressive with his ability to handle the ball, shoot from 3-point land and his free throw shooting. He is also a solid defender.

NBA teams say that he has also been impressive in the interview process during visits.

Johnson, who is being projected as a #2 guard, has spent the past month training in New York.
