TRACK

Kate Hall of Casco fell short Thursday night in her bid for a third NCAA long jump title, as she was unable to qualify for the finals at the outdoor national championships in Eugene, Oregon.

Hall, a junior at the University of Georgia who won the outdoor title last year and the indoor title this year, had a best jump of 20 feet, 13/4 inches in her three attempts. The cutoff for the top nine competitors who reached the final round of three jumps was 20-101/2.

BASKETBALL

NBA: The Philadelphia 76ers said Bryan Colangelo resigned as president of basketball operations after an independent firm investigated allegations he used Twitter to anonymously trash some of his players and fellow executives, and defend himself against criticism from fans and media.

The 76ers added that Coach Brett Brown, a South Portland native, would oversee basketball operations on an interim basis and the search for a new general manager would begin immediately.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said Glen “Big Baby” Davis, a former Boston Celtic, was charged with attacking a man outside a club in West Hollywood, California, and faces a felony assault charge. If convicted, Davis could face seven years in prison.

SOCCER

WORLD CUP: Hope Solo, a World Cup winner and Olympic champion with the United States, wants her country to lose one of its biggest soccer contests: FIFA’s vote on the 2026 World Cup host.

“I can’t say it should be awarded to Morocco,” Solo said, “but I don’t think it should go to the United States, and that’s hard to say.”

Concerns about the financial dealings of the United States Soccer Federation and the closed men’s league system led Solo to that conclusion.
