Basketball Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins plans to take a spin around an IndyCar track. It's no career change for Wilkins, just a visit this weekend to the Milwaukee Mile ahead of Sunday's race and part of an effort to promote diabetes awareness along with driver Charlie Kimball. Both Wilkins and Kimball have diabetes, and both serve as spokesman for Novo Nordisk, which also sponsors Kimball's No. 83 car. It will be a far different meeting from their usual encounters, pacing the halls of Congress to meet with senators and representatives about diabetes awareness.

Derrick Rose heard the cheers and showed some of his old explosiveness, fellow Chicago product Anthony Davis scored 20 points, and the U.S. beat Brazil 95-78 on Saturday night in a tuneup for the World Cup of Basketball. With fans roaring for Rose all night, the Chicago Bulls point guard flashed some of his MVP moves. Davis, who like Rose grew up on Chicago's South Side, dominated down the stretch, and the U.S. pulled away after Brazil kept it close for three quarters. He hit two free throws and blocked a shot by Larry Taylor, leading to a three-point play for James Harden.

The U.S. national team has canceled a trip to Senegal after the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. The Americans were scheduled to interrupt their World Cup of Basketball preparations to travel to the African continent for the first time, conducting a joint clinic on Aug. 27 with the Senegal national team. They planned to tour Senegal's Goree Island and attend a reception hosted by the Senegalese government. More than 1,000 people have died in West Africa in the last six months after the outbreak quickly spread to major cities in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
