USA barely misses finishing off Canada, hits post on empty net

Team USA caught a break when the linesman got in the way of a Canadian defenseman and Kelli Stack was able to clear the puck down the ice. It looked as though USA would clinch the game with the empty netter when the puck hit the post dead on. Canada then went down the ice and scored the game-tying goal. Overtime should be thrilling between these two bitter rivals. [_@MarcusD_] The...

Auburn nearly upsets Florida but has costly missed free-throw, bad foul and turnover in final seconds

Hard to blow a basketball quite like the way Auburn did during Wednesday’s matchup with No.2 Florida. After No.1 Syracuse was upset to Boston College earlier in the night, it appeared the No.2 team in the country was also going to fall. However, due to a missed-free throw with just over 20-second to play by Chris Denson, a terrible intentional foul on the ensuing rebound by Asauhn...

Louisville’s Terry Rozier pulls off sick fake behind the back pass on fastbreak

It’s hard to believe that a college player could execute Rajon Rondo’s signature fake behind the back pass so well, but Louisville’s Terry Rozier executed it to perfection on Wednesday night. Rozier stole the ball, ran down the court on a 2 on 1 fastbreak, faked the pass behind the back, and went in for the easy layup. Rozier may not be Rajon Rondo, but at least he plays for...

Dwight Howard joins in on “Howard Sucks” chants in return to LA

Dwight Howard doesn’t seem all too mad about leaving LA. While he clearly didn’t try his hardest or play his best basketball last year as a member of the Lakers, to his credit he was hurt and still put up monster numbers (17.1 PPG, 12.4 RPG). At least the NBA’s primary villain can joke about himself, joining in on the crowd’s “Howard sucks” chants in his return to the...

Lakers’ Jodie Meeks hits crazy over-the-backboard shot against Houston

The Lakers may be trying to tank, but Jodie Meeks isn’t having any of that. Averaging by far the most minutes per game of his career (32.6), Meeks isn’t about to give up his consistent starting job. The former UK star hit an unbelievable, over the backboard circus shot against the Rockets in Dwight Howard’s return to LA on Wednesday night. The ball bounced off the backboard...

Oklahoma Self-Reported NCAA violations of 3 players eating too much pasta

No, this is not a joke. Oklahoma self-reported NCAA violations of three players eating too much pasta at a banquet. In order to be reinstated, the three players had to pay $3.83 to a charity. How they determined that $3.83 is beyond me and seems completely worthless and arbitrary. A story like this does more harm than good for the NCAA. @cjzero NCAA GOVERNING PASTA. pic.twitter.com...

Canada robbed of goal and penalty shot, defenseman covers puck in crease

Canada was robbed of a goal in the third period of a 1-1 tie with Latvia when defenseman Kristaps Sotnieks used his glove to cover the puck before it went over the goal line. The puck didn’t cross the goal line, but it very blatantly should have been a penalty shot. This could come back to haunt the Canadians, especially with goalie Kristers Gudlevskis playing so well.
