SOMERSET WEST, South Africa -- A South African judge is expected to announce Oscar Pistorius new sentence on Wednesday, with the double-amputee Olympic runner facing a possible 15-year jail term after his conviction was changed to murder for shooting girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013. Mark Fayne Jersey .The sentencing could be the final act in a legal drama that has rolled on for 3-and-a-half years and often fascinated the world with the fall from grace of a famous athlete who was once an inspiration to many.Be warned, though, it still might not be over.Both the prosecution and Pistorius defense team have the opportunity to appeal any sentence handed down by Judge Thokozile Masipa.---WHAT IS PISTORIUS FACING?Fifteen years in jail is the minimum sentence for murder in South Africa, which no longer has the death penalty. However, as always with Pistorius dramatic case, nothing is certain. Judge Masipa could decide on a reduced sentence if she thinks there are compelling reasons to be lenient.At his 2014 trial, Pistorius was acquitted of murder -- by Masipa -- and instead found guilty of culpable homicide, an unintentional but still negligent killing similar to manslaughter. Then, Masipa sentenced Pistorius to five years in prison. He was released to house arrest after serving one year.But following an appeal by prosecutors to South Africas Supreme Court of Appeal, Pistorius was convicted of the more serious charge of murder, leading to a new sentencing.---WHATS LIKELY TO HAPPEN?Hard to tell.At the murder trial two years ago, Judge Masipa partly believed Pistorius story that he mistook Steenkamp for an intruder hiding in a bathroom in his home in the middle of the night. He claimed he shot four times through a toilet cubicle door in fear for his life, only realizing afterward that it was Steenkamp. Masipas original verdict of manslaughter was overruled by the Supreme Court last year, and Masipa must now sentence the 29-year-old Pistorius again, this time for the crime of murder.At a sentencing hearing last month, prosecutors asked Masipa to sentence Pistorius to at least 15 years in prison. The prosecution has hinted it is unlikely to accept anything less than an eight-year sentence for the multiple Paralympic champion.Pistorius defense argued there are compelling circumstances in Pistorius case that warrant a reduced sentence, and even no jail time: Chief defense lawyer Barry Roux said that Pistorius is still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from the killing and also that his disability and fame will put him in danger in jail. At last months sentencing hearing, Pistorius removed his prosthetic legs and hobbled across the courtroom floor on his stumps in an attempt by his lawyers to show how vulnerable he is. Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel labelled the demonstration a desperate attempt to gain sympathy.---PISTORIUS TV INTERVIEW -- A COSTLY DECISION?Pistorius gave an interview to a British television station shortly before his sentencing hearing, giving prosecutors another opportunity to criticize him. They said his decision to talk to the media and yet decline to testify at his sentencing hearing showed disrespect to the court and Judge Masipa. Masipa, herself a former journalist, might frown on Pistorius television appearance with his case not yet completed.In the interview, Pistorius said he wanted to be given the opportunity to do charity work instead of being sent to jail, and that Steenkamp would not have wanted him to go to prison. Prosecutors contrasted Pistorius decision not to testify at the hearings with Steenkamps 73-year-old father, Barry, who battled his emotions in court as he testified how he had been devastated by the loss of his daughter. Barry Steenkamp, who wept and whose hands shook during his testimony, said Pistorius should pay for what he did.---ANOTHER APPEAL?Its possible, especially if Pistorius is given what prosecutors view as a lenient punishment.If Pistorius is given a long prison sentence, his chances of an appeal may depend on his finances. Pistorius has no more money following a long and costly legal battle, his family lawyer says. Jean-Francois Jacques Jersey . Catch all the action on TSN2 at 11pm et/8pm pt. The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. Drake Caggiula Jersey .

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Rudy Gay and the Sacramento Kings were glad to benefit from a rare bit of good fortune.Gay had 23 points and nine rebounds, and the Kings beat Toronto 102-99 on Sunday night after waiting out a video review to see if the Raptors had forced overtime on Terrence Ross 3-pointer at the buzzer.Following a timeout with 2.4 seconds left, Ross grabbed a deflected pass, took two dribbles and made a 33-footer -- but the officials ruled time had expired.Official Mike Callahan said a replay review showed the clock didnt start when DeMarcus Cousins deflected the ball. The actual elapsed time was 2.5 seconds, resulting in no basket and a celebration at Golden 1 Arena.Ive got to hear another explanation better than that because we reviewed it about 10 times in there, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Even if the clock started once DeMarcus Cousins deflected it, T-Ross caught it, shot it, and still had shot it at .5 (seconds) with plenty of time.The only explanation the Kings cared about was the disputed shot didnt count.We never get these kinds of breaks, Gay said. It felt good to get off the court and celebrate this win.While the Kings were ecstatic, the Raptors bemoaned their fate.Im going to save my money and say no comment, Kyle Lowry said.The NBAs scoring leader, DeMar DeRozan was defended tightly by Gay for much of the game and missed 12 of 15 shots while finishing with a season-low 12 points for Toronto.The Kings snapped a four-game losing streak and beat the Raptors for the second time this season. DeRozan, who entered averaging 33 points per game, missed all eight shots and had three second-half points as Toronto was outscored 44-36.We gave up 36 in the second half. Thats fantastic, because the first half wasnt so nice defensively, Kings coach Dave Joergeer said. Jussi Jokinen Jersey. Sacramento defeated Toronto for the second time this season. In the first meeting, DeRozan shot 7 of 20 and had 23 points. He has reached 30 points in 10 of 13 games this season.I can say it was a bad shooting night or I could be humble and say that I played good defense, said Gay, an ex-teammate of DeRozans. Hes a friend of mine.Lowry had nine of his 25 points in the fourth quarter and finished with eight assists and seven turnovers. Jonas Valanciunas added 23 points and 14 rebounds, DeMarre Carroll scored 17 points, and Patrick Patterson 11.Cousins had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Kings.
