(Chester, PA)  --  The Timbers travel to face the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.  Portland is coming off a 1-1 draw with Houston last week.  The Timbers are 10th in the West with 11 points at 3-6-and-2, five out of a playoff spot.  The Union and D.C. United both have 24 points to lead the East.



(Portland, OR)  --  After leading the Trail Blazers to their first Western Conference finals in 19 years, Damian Lillard is about to get the Rod Tidwell treatment.  Namely, Portland is going to show him the money.  Yahoo reports the two sides are expected to come together on a supermax extension this summer, which would give the 28-year-old guard a four-year, 191-million-dollar extension.  The supermax is contingent on Lillard being named to one of the three All-NBA teams. Currently, Lillard is under contract for two more seasons and is owed 62-million.



(Eugene, OR)  --  With superstar Sabrina Ionescu returning for her senior season, the Ducks are the favorite for the national championship.  However, they have some holes to fill following the graduations of Maite Cazorla and Oti Gildon.  Help may be on the way, though, as former Trojan Minyon Moore will be visiting the Ducks over the weekend.  Moore, who has a year of eligibility remaining after graduating USC, is be eligible to play immediately, regardless of where she chooses to transfer.  The guard averaged 14.8 points, 5.9 assists and 5.5 rebounds last season.

(Arlington, TX)  --  The Rangers finished off a three-game sweep of the Mariners with a 2-1 win in Arlington.  J.P. Crawford singled in the lone run in the seventh inning for Seattle, which has lost six-of-seven.  Marco Gonzales allowed two runs, but just one earned, over seven frames to take the loss.  He's now 5-and-4 after starting the season 5-and-0.



(Eugene, OR)  --  The Ducks added their fifth five-star recruit for the class of 2020, as Kelly Graves took to social media to announce her intentions to play for Kelly Graves.  Guards Sydney Parrish, Maddie Scherr and Te-Hina PaoPao, and forward Angela Dugalic previously committed to the program.  Graves is a 6-foot-4 forward out of Linwood, New Jersey who averaged 18.1 points and 11 rebounds as a junior.
