Gonzaga roared back from an 11-point halftime deficit pulling away down the stretch to knock off No. 22 Dayton, 75-65 in the Bulldogs' debut under first-year coach Lisa Fortier Sunday.

Down 37-29 less than two minutes into the second half, Lindsay Sherbert and Keani Albanez drilled back-to-back 3-pointers and Shelby Cheslek converted a layup to pull Gonzaga even with 16:40 to play. Gonzaga outscored Dayton in the second half, 51-31, behind an 18-point effort by Sherbert. Albanez added 14 points and Sunny Greinacher 10. SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – November 17, 2014
Mariners' Cano Breaks Toe In Japan, Out 3-4 Weeks
Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after breaking a toe during the Major League Baseball All-Stars tour of Japan. Seattle said Saturday that Cano will not need a cast and the injury will heal with rest. Cano was hit in the right foot by the second pitch of his seventh-inning at bat vs. Samurai Japan pitcher Yuki Nishi. Cano left the game, and x-rays revealed a non-displaced fracture of his right small toe. Mariners Senior Director of Athletic Training Rick Griffin spoke with Cano, who reported no pain. Cano should be able to resume baseball activities in mid-December. Cano will not participate in the remainder of the Japan All-Star Series. Cano signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners before last season. SEATTLE (AP) – November 17, 2014
