Julia Mancuso gave herself a shot to win yet another Olympic medal on Monday morning in Sochi, taking the lead in womens super-combined after the first of two runs. Chris Wormley Youth Jersey . Mancuso stayed true to her reputation as a skier who rises to the occasion in big events, crossing nearly a half-second faster than all other competitors in the downhill run at Rosa Khutor. Mancusos time was one minute, 42.68 seconds. The Reno, Nev., native has three career Olympic medals, including a silver in the super-combi at the Vancouver Olympics. The 29-year-old has struggled this season, with her last World Cup podium in March 2013, . She will now hope to fend off skiers who are better in the slalom, in a run that will take place at 6 a.m. ET. At the very least, shes laid claim to top contender status for Wednesdays downhill. The rest of the top 5 after the first run includes some of the best womens skiers of recent years: Lara Gut of Switzerland is in second, followed by Tina Maze of Slovenia, Anna Fenninger of Austria, and defending Olympic champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany. Nicole Hosp of Austria, 2006 Olympic silver medallist in the slalom, still has a shot at the podium after an eighth place showing in the downhill. Marie-Michèle Gagnon, the lone Canadian in the event, sits in 21st place. Gagnon generally does not compete in the downhill during the World Cup season. She has four top 5 finishes in the slalom within the past year, and will need that kind of performance in the second run and some breaks elsewhere to be a factor. The 24-year-old Lac-Etchemin, Que., native won a super-combined event in January, but it was comprised of a super-G and slalom. Marlon Humphrey Jersey . -- Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias says he has stress fractures in both legs and isnt sure when hell be able to play again, leaving the Tigers two weeks to fill his spot for opening day and perhaps a lot longer. Nico Siragusa Jersey . Pressley missed all of last season with Cincinnati because of a knee injury, but the 5-foot-10, 249-pounder had been expected to fill a need on Clevelands roster. http://www.ravensauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Marlon-Humphrey-Ravens-Jersey/ .A. Happ is coming off his first start of the year, a win at Philadelphia Monday. The former Phillie allowed three hits in five scoreless frames of a 3-0 triumph.Leading up to SportsCentres Year In Review on Christmas Eve, TSN and TSN.ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at the rapid rise of basketball in our country. In Canada, hockey has always been - and will most likely always be - the sport that produces the most professional talent. Yet over the past year it seems basketball north of the border is turning a corner. Most expected it wouldnt truly start until 2014. Andrew Wiggins, the freshman forward from Vaughan, Ont., is dominating in college ball with the Kansas Jayhawks and should go first overall in next Junes NBA draft. Well that all might still happen, but Wiggins wont be the first Canadian to ever be selected No. 1. That title went to Torontos Anthony Bennett of the University of Nevada, taken first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 6-8 forward hasnt had a stellar year – already getting unfairly booed by the Cleveland faithful - but the 20-year-old was never chosen with the expectation hed coast to a Rookie of the Year award. Bennetts potential and raw athleticism was what caught the Cavaliers eye. Regardless, it made history and it was a proud moment for Canadian sports fans. With Wiggins playing well in Kansas and being compared to a superstar-type player, the future is looking prettty decent. Tyus Bowser Ravens Jersey. And Wiggins and Bennett are just the tip of the iceberg. On both the college and pro stage, Canucks are popping up at a rapid rate - and Canada could have the chance to not only qualify, but compete for a medal in the 2016 Olympics and beyond. The Cavaliers Tristan Thompson (Toronto), the Magics Andrew Nicholson (Mississauga), the Celtics Kelly Olynyk (Toronto), the Spurs Cory Joseph (Toronto) and the Lakers Robert Sacre (North Vancouver) are all young, talented and ready to put Canada on the map of basketball relevance. Dont forget about two-time NBA champion Joel Anthony (Montreal) of the Miami Heat. When it comes to NCAA ball – besides Wiggins – theres Kevin Pangos (Holland Landing, Ont.) of the Gonzaga Bulldogs and Nik Stauskas (Etobicoke, Ont.) of the Michigan Wolverines. Both teams are ranked in the Top 25 and will look to continue the trend when March Madness rolls around. The days of looking up to Victoria, B.C.s Steve Nash as the lone productive Canadian in the Association are long gone. Whether its better coaching at the grassroots level, more interest in the sport or just sheer luck, Canada is improving on the hardwood. This is the golden age of Canadian basketball and its only getting started. James Naismith would be proud.
