NEW YORK -- A former Guatemalan soccer federation president has pleaded guilty in New York to charges related to a sprawling corruption investigation of world soccer. Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys .Brayan Jimenez pleaded guilty Friday to federal racketeering conspiracy and wire fraud conspiracy charges, each carrying up to 20 years in prison. Its unclear when hell be sentenced.The 62-year-old Jimenez is among 40 people from around the world charged in a FIFA (FEE-fuh) bribery scandal over lucrative broadcasting rights.Prosecutors say Jimenez accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from a Florida-based sports marketing company. They say in exchange for the money Jimenez awarded the company media marketing rights to the Guatemalan soccer teams World Cup qualifying matches in 2018 and 2022.Jimenezs attorneys havent returned a message seeking comment on his guilty plea.Kevin Pillar Jersey .J. -- New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on his left knee. Russell Martin Jersey . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow. Perez joins infielder Andy LaRoche and catcher Mike Nickeas with minor-league agreements for 2014 that include invitations to attend spring training. . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. Arizonas loss to Butler on Friday night revealed some of the flaws hidden when playing against inferior opponents.The Wildcats opened the season with a victory over short-handed and youthful Michigan State, but the Bulldogs are a bigger, deeper and more-veteran team. Butler beat Arizona 69-65 in a hard-fought game in the Las Vegas Invitational, which dropped the Wildcats (5-1) from eighth to 16th in the AP poll.Were a work in progress, Arizona coach Sean Miller said.The Wildcats will try to make progress when they faces Texas Southern on Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz. (9 p.m. ET, Pac 12 Network). The Tigers (4-2) were predicted to win the Southwestern Athletic Conference in a preseason vote of league coaches and sports information directors.This will be the seventh of 16 road games to start the season for the Tigers, who are coming off an 84-73 loss at Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday. They are coached by Mike Davis, the former head man at Indiana and UAB.He directed Texas Southern into the NCAA Tournament in 2014 and 2015, the latter appearance resulting in a 93-72 opening-round loss to Arizona in Portland, Ore. That is the only previous matchup between the programs.The Wildcats return only two players from that team -- point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright and center Dusan Ristic, both juniors. That helps tell the tale of a young team still finding its way this season.Because of injuries and guard Allonzo Triers unexplained absence, Miller is working with eight scholarship players. Three are freshman, another is a junior college transfer.We lost to a very good basketball team, Miller said Friday night. Butler will be a team in the NCAA Tournament. They have a lot of experience. They are a little further along att this point than we are with that experience. Marcus Stroman Jersey. We played through foul trouble. We had to play through some adversity. We didnt play well at times, but our effort was outstanding. That was the most important thing. When you do that, you learn from it.Trier, who averaged 14.8 points per game as a freshman last season, has not played this season. The school has not commented amid rumors of eligibility issues.Freshman 7-foot forward Lauri Markkanen has emerged as the teams leading scorer (18.2 points per game), but he was limited by foul trouble against Butler, scoring 15 points in 21 minutes before fouling out.He was not able to assert himself, Miller said. A couple of fouls he probably could have controlled by being where he was supposed to be.Freshman guard Kobi Simmons (12.7 ppg) and freshman wing Rawle Alkins (10.3 ppg) are the next two top scorers for the Wildcats.Texas Southern is led in scoring by junior guard Zach Lofton, who has spent time at Illinois State and Minnesota. He is averaging 20.5 points per game. Another transfer guard, Dulani Robinson from Pacific, is averaging 14.5 points per game.Derrick Griffin, a 6-7 power forward who won last seasons SWAC Player of the Year award, is averaging 12.2 points and 8.8 rebounds. He has been selected All-SWAC in basketball and football (2015, as a receiver), though he was dismissed from the football team this September.Theyre a very good team that can shoot the basketball, Louisiana-Lafayette coach Bob Marlin said of Texas Southern. They have great players in Lofton and Robinson, and Griffin is an outstanding athlete. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
