As you are well aware of by now, Michigan lost to Kentucky on a ridiculous three-pointer made by Aaron Harrison with less than three seconds left in the game. Willie Cauley-Stein, the Wildcats’ backup center, but still likely a first round pick in the NBA, filmed the historic shot from the bench.

Bryce Harper Kicked in Head Sliding into Second, But Stays in Game

  It hasn’t been a great Opening Day for the Nationals so far. Stephen Strasburg served up a 3-run home run to Mets rookie Andrew Brown in the first inning and in the second inning, Bryce Harper almost left the game with a possible concussion after this play. Whether this is intentional or not, we hope Harper is ok. This looks pretty nasty, but he was able to stay in the game...

TV Station Recreates Their Own Florida-Dayton Highlights to Beat NCAA Restrictions
