Dimencio Vaughn scored 20 points with 13 rebounds and his extra effort underneath the basket paid off with the game-winner Tuesday night as Rider edged Fairfield 90-88 in a wild finish.

It’s a valid concern for a 32-year-old who played every down possible until the middle of his 11th season. It’s also fair for an all-time great lineman who’s been trapped on an island of ineptitude — save for his rookie season in which the Browns won 10 games but missed the playoffs — since 2007.

For this year’s game, the league asked the FBI to perform security checks on all credentialed personnel, including members of the media, McCarthy said. The NFL’s security department, which controls the composition of the application form, attempted to make the press credentialing process consistent with checks that are done for others who receive a working credential, which includes requesting racial information.

On Wednesday, 19th-ranked Auburn will travel to face a Missouri team that features three players — Jordan Barnett, Kassius Robertson and Jordan Geist — who all shoot better than 40 percent from behind the arc.

Over its past eight games, Missouri (13-6, 3-3 SEC) alternated wins and losses, but as Pearl noted, is 12-1 at home.
Auburn, which will have sizes issues inside and outside against Missouri, will need a repeat performance from Bryce Brown, who made 5 of 9 shots from long range and scored 28 points in the win on Saturday.
