Sports briefs for Wednesday, Nov. 20

Changes for Taylor, Eastern, TC, Cass girls hoops games

There are date or time changes for several girls basketball contests, two this weekend and one the following weekend.

Tri-Central’s girls basketball game at Taylor has been moved to not conflict with the TC football squad’s semistate game on Friday night. Taylor will now host the Trojan hoopsters on Saturday with the JV game starting at 6:30 p.m.

Saturday’s Eastern at Cass Mid-Indiana Conference girls basketball date will not have a JV game, so the varsity contest will start at 6 p.m.

Also, when Taylor visits Eastern in another MIC girls game on Nov. 30, there will be no JV, so the varsity game will begin at 1 p.m.

Cunningham moves to Colts’ active roster

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts promoted tight end Justice Cunningham from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday.

To make room for this year’s Mr. Irrelevant in the draft, Indianapolis (7-3) waived receiver Griff Whalen. Whalen played in six games this season, catching nine passes for 102 yards.

Cunningham was released in the Colts’ final cutdown and joined the practice squad Sept. 2. At South Carolina, he caught 50 passes for 581 yards and one TD during his career.

Butler to play in FCS playoffs

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Butler is heading to the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs for the first time in school history.

The Bulldogs (9-3, 7-1) finished in a tie with Marist for the Pioneer Football League crown. But conference officials announced Tuesday that Butler had earned the league’s automatic bid based on a tiebreaker that was determined by final ranking.

Butler has been to the postseason one other time — representing the PFL in the 2009 Gridiron Classic. The Bulldogs defeated Northeast Conference champion Central Connecticut State.

Panthers score late to beat Pats

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Ted Ginn Jr. with 59 seconds left and the Carolina Panthers held off the New England Patriots 24-20 Monday night for their sixth straight victory when officials picked up a penalty flag on the final play.
