Patric Young chases Levi Randolph the length of the court, blocks his shot

Patric Young’s college career at Florida has been one of many ups and downs and disappointments. The 6’9” 240 lb. (it’s all muscle) forward easily has the best NBA body in the nation, but a lot of the times that hasn’t translated to his play. However, on Saturday, Young showed us all a glimpse of why he’s so highly coveted by most NBA scouts.

Matt Duchene scores the snipe of the century on Evgeni Nabokov

Matt Duchene hadn’t scored a goal in 21 games prior to Saturday night’s contest against the Islanders. That all changed halfway through the second period, though, when the Canadian Olympian went bar down from almost below the goal line on Evgeni Nabokov who didn’t even know that the puck went in. The goal was career #100 for Duchene. [NHL.com] The post Matt Duchene scores the...

Marcus Smart shoves Texas Tech fan after falling into the crowd

  Marcus Smart hasn’t made very many smart decisions this year. Between constantly flopping, kicking chairs, and now this, people have started to question the sophomore’s character. I still think that Smart is the best and most NBA-ready guard in the nation and don’t think there’s anything wrong with him, but you just can’t push a fan, that’s on Ron Artest’s level...

TJ Oshie sells filthy fakeshot to beat Al Montoya in shootout

TJ Oshie, easily one of the NHL’s best shootout men, was at it again on Saturday. Oshie went forehand-backhand-forehand and sold a sick fakeshot to get Al Montoya to go down, promptly going upstairs for his league-leading seventh shootout goal of the season. We all can’t wait to see TJ wear the #74 sweater for Team USA next week in Sochi and hopefully win a Gold Medal. The post...

WATCH: Memphis point guard blocks 7-foot-1 opponent at rim

Joe Jackson is 6’1”. Przemek Karnowski is 7’1”. Who ever said that size matters?! I hope that Jackson makes it to the NBA next year so that we can see him participate in the Dunk Competition one day. Such a talented athlete. [.GIFDSPORTS] The post Joe Jackson comes up with ridiculous block on Gonzaga’s Przemek Karnowski appeared first on Diehardsport.

Rick Pitino’s son loses bet, wears chicken suit next to him at Minnesota game

It’s starting to seem like the Pitino family loses a lot of bets. Rick Pitino didn’t look too happy watching his son, Richard, coach the University of Minnesota’s basketball team on Saturday night, but it wasn’t because of poor coaching. Sitting next to him at the game was his other son, who was wearing a chicken suit as a result of a lost bet.   The post Rick Pitino’s...

Frank Mason crosses over and breaks Gary Browne’s ankles, finishes with wide-open layup

Frank Mason is probably the best backup point guard in the nation and on Saturday night he gave us all a glimpse of why. Gary Browne may have just tripped after Mason crossed over from his right to left hand, but this is still a pretty sweet highlight.

Rasheed Sulaimon goes behind-the-back to Jabari Parker for double-clutch dunk

Rasheed Sulaimon has finally found his way out of Coach K.’s doghouse and is playing like the NBA prospect we all thought he was preseason. Here, he catches the pass on the break from freshman sensation Jabari Parker, dribbles a couple of times, and then throws Parker a beautiful no-look behind-the-back pass for a double-clutch slam. [Bleacher Report] The post Rasheed Sulaimon...

JJ Hickson posterizes Andre Drummond with beautiful one-handed dunk

Usually, Andre Drummond is the one slamming on opposing players, but on Saturday night that wasn’t the case. JJ Hickson, who has crazy ups and athleticism, received a pass from Ty Lawson and made the most of the Nuggets’ possession with this beautiful throwdown.

Victor Rudd puts forward serious ‘Dunk of the Year’ candidate

USF’s Victor Rudd should probably be participating in the dunk competition at the NBA All-Star game next weekend. Rudd had a 2 on 1 fastbreak off of a turnover with teammate John Egbunu, but rightfully so decided to posterize Rutgers’ Junior Etou instead of passing. This is easily the best dunk I’ve seen this year at the college basketball level, maybe at any level. This kid...

Flames’ Jiri Hudler shoots around with Lakers in full hockey gear

Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler was in Philadelphia to play the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center, when he came out in full pads (save for hockey skates) and shot around with the Lakers. Hudler clearly has some shooting issues and even Lakers coach Larry Lewis couldn’t seem to help him. It did make for a hilarious video and it looks like everyone had a great time. Coach Larry...

US Figure Skater Ashley Wagner has priceless reaction to her score

US Figure Skater Ashley Wagner was not happy with her score from the team event, recording a 63.10. I’m guessing that this photo will go viral, much like Mckayla Maroney’s “not impressed” face.

Bobsledder Johnny Quinn gets locked in bathroom, breaks down door

U.S. Olympic Bobsledder Johnny Quinn found himself locked in the bathroom with no phone to call for help and chose to break down the door. Lucky for him the door looks like it is made of mostly cardboard and Quinn is plenty strong, having been a former member of the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers. No word on whether or not Quinn will have to pay for the damage done to his room...

Failed Olympic Hijacker arrested wearing a Montreal Canadiens Jersey

The Montreal Canadiens got some very bad publicity on Friday, when photos emerged of the Olympic Hijacker getting arrested. The man tried to take a Turkey-bound flight to Sochi and he was taken into custody wearing a Canadiens jersey. No word on whether he is actually a fan or was just wearing a “disguise,” but it’s bad publicity for them none-the-less. The first picture of...

The Harvard Crimson were taking on the Dartmouth Big Green in hockey on Friday night when Harvard’s Zamboni broke down on the ice. Harvard players then had to come on the ice and push the Zam off the ice to keep it from ruining the ice.

Olympic Luger crashes and makes miraculous recovery to finish run

During a training run, Indian Olympic Luger Shiva Keshavan fell off his sled going into a turn. He was facedown and sliding on his stomach when he somehow managed to get back on top of the sled. This looks like something straight out of movie that was CGI’d in, I’m in awe he was able to recover and finish his run. [Deadspin] The post Olympic Luger crashes and makes miraculous...

Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony has Olympic Rings mishap

The Sochi Olympic Opening Ceremonies had an interesting problem or design flaw. They were missing an Olympic Ring and in it’s place there was a snowflake. I’m assuming this was on purpose, but the fact that they willingly took out one of the five Olympic Rings is a huge mishap. These Olympics are off to a historically bad start.

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist had an unreal shot on Thursday night: St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo saved a goal with a gorgeous play: Women’s Olympic hockey players had to walk from the rink where their locker room was to the practice rink, which proved too difficult a task for the goalies.

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty had a historic night on Thursday night. Against the Vancouver Canucks he was awarded two penalty shots in two minutes in the second period and became the first player in NHL history to have two penalty shots in one period. He didn’t score on either one, but that didn’t matter, he managed to score a hat trick anyways. [NHL] The post Max...

Dustin Brown destroys Ryan Murray, likely will be suspended

Dustin Brown isn’t exactly a clean player. The Team USA assistant captain played his last game before the 2014 Winter Olympics with a bang, literally. Brown left his feet and elbowed Murray in the face, so he’ll definitely be suspended by the league for at least one game. I’ve never been a fan of Brown’s play or leadership.

Justin Jackson’s monster block leads to a Sean Kilpatrick fastbreak slam

Justin Jackson’s block may be the most impressive highlight in this video, but Sean Kilpatrick’s dunk on the opposite end sure was sweet. Cincinnati was down for most of Thursday night’s tilt, but took control in the last 5 minutes and beat conference foe UCONN 63-58. Sean Kilpatrick was easily the game’s best player, contributing 26 points, 12 boards, and 6 dimes. [ESPN...
