Alex Mor­gan was named U.S. Soc­cer’s Player of the Year for a sec­ond time af­ter lead­ing the na­tional team with 18 goals in 19 games. ... Derek Fisher was in­tro­duced as coach of the the Los An­ge­les Sparks, a team he watched play at Sta­ples Cen­ter while he helped the Lak­ers win five NBA cham­pi­onships as their point guard.

Days af­ter get­ting his first ca­reer World Cup win, Ste­fan Luitz could be dis­qual­i­fied for break­ing ski­ing’s dop­ing rules by us­ing an oxy­gen mask. The In­ter­na­tional Ski Fed­er­a­tion said it is in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent Sun­day in Beaver Creek, Colo. Luitz won a gi­ant slalom that started at an al­ti­tude of 10,340 feet. The World Anti-Dop­ing Agency al­lows “sup­ple­men­tal oxy­gen ad­min­is­tered by in­hala­tion,” but notes that sports bod­ies can choose to pro­hibit it. FIS rules state oxy­gen tanks can­not be brought to race venues.
