Kate Hansen has the best warm-up routine of the Sochi Olympics

UNC and Duke managers got in a fight during annual game

As part of the annual manager basketball game on the eve of the UNC-Duke basketball game, the rivalry took another step during this year’s event. An elbow was thrown during last night’s game at the Dean Smith Center, which led to some pushing, shoving and some cuss-words. Hopefully tonight’s game will bring the same excitement as the managers game did. [The Big Lead] The post...

Ohio State excludes letter ‘M’ from lineup cards for Michigan game

Ohio State and Michigan are set to tip-off in basketball tonight in a matchup of two  Big Ten Top 25 teams. Before the game, the Buckeye student section was handed a sheet of paper of the gameday roster.  Not only was Michigan labeled as ‘The Team up North’, but neither of the lineup cards featured a letter ‘M’ (they did miss the ‘M’ in Team, however). Oh I see what...

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt grew up in Wisconsin and played youth hockey growing up and it appears he has not lost any of his skills on the ice yet. At 6’5″ 290 lbs, Watt has surprisingly good skating ability and hands, not to mention great shooting form. Last year, J.J. told SI’s Peter King about his love for hockey and the financial issues that got in the way:...

Pierre Jackson & Anthony Davis post Instagram dunk videos to rival LeBron’s

  Anthony Davis and Pierre Jackson posted Instagram videos on Tuesday of themselves doing trick dunks, but not for the same reason as LeBron did yesterday. Apparently, both  of these young talents want to compete in upcoming NBA Dunk Competitions, at least Davis, who’s an All-Star, does. Jackson, a Baylor graduate, is currently in the D-League averaging ridiculous numbers:  30...

NCAA approves SnapChat as permissible for recruiting

On Tuesday, the NCAA approved SnapChat as a permissible form of recruiting starting August 1st for basketball and most sports. This is quite possibly one of the biggest mistakes the NCAA has ever made and I can only imagine the mayhem that is going to ensue. The NCAA has opened Pandora’s Box without even realizing what they’ve done. The post NCAA approves SnapChat as permissible...

Daily Diehard: Boston College’s Patrick Brown scores off fantastic tip, Paul George throws down nasty 360-Windmill, Bob Costas’ eye infection is even worse, Evangeline Lilly

Boston College’s Patrick Brown scored a fantastic goal during the Beanpot Final with this beautiful tip while he was on his backside: Apparently this dunk was recorded during the USA basketball camp and forgotten about. How anyone could forget about a 360-windmill dunk like this, I’ll never know. Pure filth: Now both of Bob Costas’ eyes are infected. Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins...

Canada has phenomenal private beer fridge at the Olympics

Molson Canadian and Canada have worked together to give Canadian athletes a fantastic benefit in the Olympic village.

LeBron throws ball off wall for two unbelievable self-alley oop practice dunks

Who needs the dunk contest? LeBron is one of the best at throwing it down in the Association and he showed that to his teammates after practice on in Phoenix. The King decided to start his pre game highlight dunking routine a little early on Monday afternoon, throwing the ball off the wall in two separate dunks to himself, finishing emphatically on both. His partner-in-crime, Dwyane...

Alexander Ovechkin’s skates mimic Russian Flag

It’s not often that you see a player with custom designs on his equipment that are merely there for aesthetic value, usually that is left to the goalies or for their sticks. For the Sochi Olympics, Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin has gotten some awesome skates from Bauer, with a pattern on the boot that mimics the Russian flag. You’ll see some other players with...

Daily Diehard: Local News mixes up Olympic Flags, Blake Wheeler wears “rally helmet,” former Mizzou recruit tweeted something idiotic about Michael Sam, Aimee Teegarden

It appears that the Local 7 news in Detroit isn’t quite sure which flag belongs to each country.

Blake Griffin puts together greatest windmill alley oop highlight reel of all-time

  Blake Griffin probably set the record on Sunday night for most windmill alley oop dunks in one game. I’ve certainly never seen multiple windmill dunks in one game, let alone 2 off of alley oops. BG is definitely ecstatic that his parter-in-crime, Chris Paul, is back and is now at the very least a top 10 player in the NBA. Griffin had 26 points, 11 boards, and 6 assists through...

Dion Waiters dunks on Zach Randolph in overtime

Dion Waiters is having what most would call a sophomore slump, even though his numbers this year are almost identical to his last year, but he still has the athleticism and scoring ability that made him the 4th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. In a surprising win over the Grizzlies at home, the former Syracuse sixth man dropped 18 points and sealed the victory with this emphatic...

Missouri DE Michael Sam may become first gay athlete to play professionally

On Sunday, Michael Sam told the world that he’s gay; his teammates have known since August. Sam, a 2013 first team All-American and DPOY in the SEC, can become the first openly gay athlete to play professionally this fall after he’s drafted into the NFL in May. Good for him telling his teammates before the season and now the entire country, and good for his teammates for accepting...

Quincy Acy throws the hammer down on Marcin Gortat

Quincy Acy decided that he was Blake Griffin and that Marcin Gortat was Timofey Mozgov on Sunday night, putting his hand on Gortat’s back before dunking. Acy has quietly been throwing it down all season; the 6’7” Baylor product is extremely athletic, but has scored just 19 points in 7 games played for the Raptors this year. This has definitely been one of the best dunking weeks...

  Marcus Smart has been suspended three games for pushing Texas Tech superfan, Jeff Orr, late in the second half of Saturday’s loss in Lubbock.

Who knew that Joakim Noah was an expert at jab stepping and pump faking? Well, he may not be, since Chris Kaman isn’t exactly the best defender in the NBA, but this sure was a beautiful move. Noah sold the shot fake to Kaman and then beat him to the basket for an emphatic one-hand finish. Noah’s having his best season of his career in Derrick Rose’s absence and should sustain...
