— Trailing the Steelers 21-10 Sunday, Browns receiver Corey Coleman made a play when he had to.
Coleman ran a slant on fourth down and caught a clutch touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter. The Browns ultimately lost 21-18, but they have to be happy to see their 2016 first-round pick make such a significant play.

— Tito Odenigbo, a Centerville graduate, is reportedly planning to transfer to Miami (Fla.) for his senior season of college football.
The former Elk played 27 games at defensive tackle for Illinois over the past three seasons, including five starts.
He had 29 tackles, including 4.5 for loss, last season.
247Sports reported Odenigbo’s decision, which the Palm Beach Post reports has yet to be confirmed by the school.
As a graduate transfer, he will be eligible to play immediately in Coral Gables, where the both starting tackles from the 2017 defense opted to enter the NFL draft early.
Odenigbo was a two-time All-GWOC performer and an honorable mention All-Ohio pick for the Elks.

DAYTON — Jalen Crutcher hit a go-ahead 3-pointer, and Trey Landers added two clutch free throws as the Dayton Flyers rallied to beat Davidson 65-64 on Tuesday at UD Arena.
Dayton trailed 61-60 with 56 seconds left when Crutcher hit a 3-pointer. Landers hit two free throws with 22 seconds left.
Davidson trimmed the deficit to one with a 3-pointer by Kellan Grady with 3 seconds to play. Darrell Davis missed the front end of a 1-and-1, and Davidson’s Will Magarity missed a halfcourt shot at the buzzer, but the officials were waving the shot off before it missed. It came after the buzzer.
The Flyers improved to 10-10 and 4-4 in the Atlantic 10 with a victory over second-place Davidson (10-8, 5-2), which saw its five-game winning streak end.
Landers led the Flyers with 16 points. Josh Cunningham had 15. Darrell Davis scored 14. Crutcher had 12.

Kentucky basketball plays Mississippi State at Rupp Arena at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 23. Follow along below for the score, live updates and stats from the game.
Kentucky 68, Mississippi State 59, 4:01 2H: The Cats are finally pulling away (maybe) with a nice flurry: Jarred Vanderbilt tip-in off a Gilgeous-Alexander lob, a slick Diallo drive and finish in transition, a slicker in-and-out dribble and finish. Kentucky badly needed that demonstration of some competent offense.
Kentucky 58, Mississippi State 54, 7:54 2H: Not sure why it took so long, but Kevin Knox’s first field-goal attempt of the second half was a deep 3-pointer that swished and got Rupp rocking. He’s 4 of 4 from three and 5 of 6 from the field with 16 points. (Knox had made just 2 of 14 threes in the previous three games.) And the Bulldogs just threw it out of bounds. Here’s your updated box score:
Kentucky 55, Mississippi State 52, 9:58 2H: How about PJ Washington? Now 9 of 12 at the free-throw line and a two-hand cram off an SGA lob to finally wake up Rupp Arena. He’s up to 19 points and 5 rebounds and is carrying the Cats right now.
Mississippi State 52, Kentucky 51, 11:36 2H: This is just a brutal basketball game to watch. Half-hearted defense, awful passes, badly missed shots. It’s an assault on the eyeballs. And the Wildcats are in danger of suffering their first three-game losing streak in Calipari’s nine seasons … at the hands of an MSU team that has lost 4 of 5 SEC games. Kentucky is making Nick Weatherspoon (17 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) look like Magic Johnson. Meanwhile, the Cats have three McDonald’s All-Americans (Green, Richards, Vanderbilt) who have combined for zero points. Here’s the box score if you dare:
Kentucky 47, Mississippi State 46, 15:20 2H: Calipari called a timeout just 36 seconds into the second half after MSU surged ahead on a jumper, UK turnover and layup. Rupp Arena was (and is still for the most part) dead quiet. Wenyen Gabriel, who started the second half in place of ineffective Nick Richards, got a putback bucket and 3-pointer in short succession to give UK a little lift, but after just three first-half turnovers, the Cats have four in the first 4:40 this half. It’s not pretty basketball. Defensively, MSU is running circles around Kentucky to the tune of 5 for 9 shooting.
HALFTIME: Kentucky 38, Mississippi State 36
Kevin Knox is 4 of 5 from the field and 4 of 4 at the free-throw line and leads all scorers with 13 points. PJ Washington is playing pretty well (11 points, 3 boards). Hamidou Diallo and Jarred Vanderbilt each have 5 rebounds. That’s all pretty good, but the defense (and Diallo/Vanderbilt’s 2-of-10 shooting) has been bad. John Calipari has been getting down in defensive stances on the sidelines while howling at his non-compliant young players — and even almost accidentally stripped an MSU ball handler late in the half. Not pretty, but UK leads. Here’s the box score:
Kentucky 34, Mississippi State 27, 4:24 1H: The Cats’ two worst offensive players tonight — Hamidou Diallo (2-5 FG, all 3 of UK’s turnovers) and Jarred Vanderbilt (0-5 FG) — are making it up on the glass. They’ve combined for 9 rebounds. Knox (11 points), Gilgeous-Alexander (8 points, 3 assists) and Washington (9 points, 3 rebounds) are doing the rest of the heavy lifting. Here’s the updated box score:
Kentucky 26, Mississippi State 22, 7:50 1H: Knox is officially on fire after getting a good-luck, banked-in 3-pointer for his third straight make from deep. He added another swished jumper and is now 4 of 5 from the field with 11 points. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (6 points, 3 assists, 0 turnovers) is also playing well. Jarred Vanderbilt, at least offensively, is not. He’s 0 for 5 with several close-range misses tonight.
Mississippi State 18, Kentucky 15: The natives were getting restless as Kentucky trailed 13-7 with 14 minutes to go in the first half, but then Kevin Knox drained 3-pointers from the right and left wings on consecutive possessions and Sacha Killeya-Jones finished a bucket inside through a foul and it was all tied at 15 in a blink. The Bulldogs are back in front, but Knox rediscovering his deep shooting stroke is a significant development for the Wildcats. The 3-point streak won’t be threatened tonight. Here’s the box score so far:
Mississippi State 9, Kentucky 6, 15:21 1H: This is so far not the recipe for avoiding the first three-game losing streak in the John Calipari era. The Cats are just 3 of 11 from the field — with a couple of ugly misses in some early action for Jarred Vanderbilt — while the Bulldogs started 4 of 6, led by Nick Weatherspoon (5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist).
STARTING FIVE: It’s SGA, Diallo, Knox, Washington and Richards again for the Cats.
There is no Jarred Vanderbilt (or Quade Green) Watch tonight. Both are playing for the second straight game. While you wait for tip-off, here’s Kyle T’ucker’s take on the changing narrative on Vanderbilt — from freeloader who’d never play for UK to hero of the struggling Cats, both of which are probably wrong.
