NEW ORLEANS — Getting enough rest during the NBA offseason is the least of Anthony Davis' concerns. He's just 21.

Coming off his first All-Star campaign with the New Orleans Pelicans in only his second NBA season, Davis is now looking forward to starting Team USA training camp in Las Vegas on Monday and the likelihood of joining the club for the FIBA World Cup in Madrid in August.

"Of course, I'm a young guy, so all I want to do is play basketball right now," Davis said Friday in a conference call hosted by the Pelicans. "That's the only thing on my mind is just play, play, play. I love the game so much."

BEREA — Josh Gordon's off-field issues didn't put him out of shape.

The embattled Pro Bowl wide receiver reported to Browns' training camp Friday and passed his conditioning test as he awaits an appeal hearing with the NFL on a possible suspension.

Gordon is scheduled to meet with the league Friday. He's facing a 1-year ban for violating the substance abuse policy for at least the third time. Gordon was suspended for the first two games last season but still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns.

BERGERAC, France — Ramunas Navardauskas gave Lithuania and his American team a stage victory Friday at the Tour de France. Now cycling's great showcase is reduced to this — the race for second place behind Vincenzo Nibali.

The Italian, who has all but won the yellow jersey, cruised to the finish in Stage 19 in the rain-splattered pack behind the Lithuanian's breakaway. Only a mishap of the highest order during today's time trial would deny Nibali victory in Paris on Sunday.

With cool and methodical racing, Nibali has bit by bit built a lead of more than seven minutes on his closest rivals, much more against many others. Frenchmen Thibaut Pinot and Jean-Christophe Peraud and Spaniard Alejandro Valverde are vying for second and third.

Bucyrus Reservoir #1 (40 acres; Crawford County) – Anglers can expect to catch largemouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill and bullheads this time of year; fish the cover along the shore consisting of timber, brush and weeds. Anglers seeking out largemouth bass should try minnows, plastic worms, tube jigs and crankbaits. A primitive boat ramp is available, off SR 98, just east of Beechgrove Road; there are no motor restrictions but boats must operate at “no-wake” speeds.

Resthaven Wildlife Area (444 acres; Erie County) – With 10 different ponds, anglers should still be able to hook into some largemouth bass this time of year; typical lures include plastic worms and crankbaits. Pond 7 is also excellent for carp; for something new, try bow fishing from the access roads or from a boat. Boats may be used on the ponds; however, no boat ramps are available at most of the ponds; Pond 8 does have a boat ramp and a handicapped-accessible fishing pier. Gasoline motors up to 9.9 HP may be used on all ponds.

Walleye: Fishing has been good north of West Sister Island, off Magee Marsh, west and north of “A” can of the Camp Perry firing range, around northwest reef and west of Rattlesnake Island. Anglers trolling are using worm harnesses with inline weights, divers or bottom-bouncers and spoons pulled behind divers; anglers casting are using mayfly rigs or are drifting with bottom bouncers and worm harnesses.

Yellow Perch: Fishing has been good just off Turtle Island, between Green and Rattlesnake islands and from Marblehead to Kelleys Island. Perch-spreaders with shiners fished near the bottom produce the most fish.
