Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).


Former NBA guard Ray Williams dies at age 58


Former University of Minnesota and NBA guard Ray Williams died this past weekend. He was 58.

Williams died March 22, 2013  in New York City after suffering from colon cancer.

Ray is the younger brother of another former NBA star, Gus Williams who played for Golden State, Seattle, Washington and Atlanta.

Williams averaged 18.9 ppg in two seasons at Minnesota where his teammates included Kevin McHale and Mychal Thompson and head coach Flip Saunders. All four made their way into the NBA.

Williams played 10 years in the NBA with the New York Knicks twice, the New Jersey Nets twice, Kansas City Kings, Boston Celtics, Atlanta Hawks and San Antonio Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs were shocked earlier in the week when their backup point guard, T.J. Ford, after playing just 14 games, abruptly retired at the age of 28.

The former Texas Longhorns star’s recently had his spine surgically repaired and did not want to risk anymore injuries. That injury at one time sidelined him for an entire NBA season.

Terrance Jerod Ford had a big year for Texas in 2003 winning several player of the year awards: Naismith, John Wooden, Sports Illustrated and The Sporting News. He was a Longhorns basketball player from 2001-2003.

He had his #11 jersey retired by the university. Ford is one of only four in the school’s history to have be so honored; Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams in football and Roger Clemens in baseball.

The Houston native was a 2003 NBA Draft first round pick of the Milwaukee Bucks, 8th overall.

The 6’0, 165-pound guard also played with Indiana in the NBA. He also found time to play in Croatia during the NBA lockout.

His career totals includes 4,797 points (11.2 ppg), 1,331 rebounds and 2,495 assists.

In the summer of 2009, nobody wanted Zach Randolph. He was considered unwanted by just about every NBA team except the Memphis Grizzlies and they’re glad he’s on their team.

Randolph scored 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Grizzlies advanced to the Western Conference semifinals for the first time, while making NBA history in eliminating the #1 seeded San Antonio Spurs, 99-91 Friday night in Memphis.

The Grizzlies became the just the second #8 seed to eliminate a #1 seed since the NBA expanded the opening round to a best-of-seven series. Next up for Memphis, is the Oklahoma City Thunder in the semifinals.

Memphis had been the NBA franchise best known for empty seats and the unenviable mark for playoff futility at 0-12 after being swept in their first three appearances.

Randolph took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 17 of the Grizzlies’ 29 points including the go-ahead-to-stay hook shot at 81-80.
