ELIDA — The boys showed their stuff for the last time before the local crowd Tuesday night as the District 8 Boys All-Star Roundball Games took center stage on the Union Bank Court of the Elida Fieldhouse Tuesday night.

The Division IV game featured something that to anyone’s recollection had never happened in the 40th annual game: overtime.

The West All-Stars outscored the East 14-8 in the extra there minutes to post a 135-129 victory.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Kyle Larson was ninth on the final restart at California, with four rows of traffic to navigate in two laps in a frantic bid for the best finish possible. With Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart at the front, Larson wasn’t even thinking about victory.

“Tony’s going to win,” Larson radioed his Chip Ganassi Racing team.

“Man, these restarts are crazy. You never know,” replied crew chief Chris Heroy.

So Larson went for the win.

CLEVELAND — The Raptors aren’t officially in the NBA playoffs. They don’t look ready for them, either.

Dion Waiters scored 24 points, Luol Deng added 19 and the Cleveland Cavaliers prevented Toronto from getting closer to a postseason spot with a 102-100 win over the sloppy Raptors on Tuesday night.

Toronto fell behind by 21 points in the third quarter, then battled back to take a 95-94 lead. But the Raptors fell apart in the final minutes.

With their fourth loss in six games, the Raptors dropped one-half game behind Chicago for the No. 3 playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

CLEVELAND — The Browns added flexibility and playoff experience to their offensive line.

The club agreed to a contract Monday with free agent Paul McQuistan, who started 14 games last season for the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

McQuistan, who was in Cleveland for a visit last week, was previously with the Browns as a backup in 2010. The 30-year-old lineman may slide into the open spot at right guard after the Browns lost starter Shawn Lauvao in free agency to Washington.

The 6-6, 315-pound McQuistan played nine games at left tackle and five at left guard for Seattle last season.
