Wild rally falls short, No. 19 Texas loses at Iowa St

With less than 12 minutes left, Texas was staring at a 21-point deficit and the very strong possibility of a losing record in the Big 12. The Longhorns still lost, and they still fell below .500 in league play. They also nearly pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in school history. Georges Niang scored 19 points, Bryce Dejean-Jones had 18 and 15th-ranked Iowa State held off...

Oklahoma unbeaten in Big 12, moves into Top 25

Even when Oklahoma was in the midst of a three-game skid in December, coach Sherri Coale had a feeling her team could be special.

We weren't home for 30 days and playing really good teams. ''I told them after...

Davis' dunks aplenty lead Pelicans past 76ers

Anthony Davis stood at the top of the key, pumping his fist and letting out a roar. His adrenaline-infused reaction was inspired not by one of his five thunderous dunks against the Philadelphia 76ers, but the way Omer Asik converted Davis' crisp pass under the basket into a layup as he was fouled. "Everybody's having fun, moving the ball. It doesn't matter who scores," Davis said...

Blue Jays, Orioles both deserve errors for handling of Duquette-Beeston mess

I want to see how both teams pick up the pieces. I want to hear Orioles general manager Dan Duquette explain how he will mend fences with an organization that he spent several months trying to bolt. And I want to hear Blue Jays chairman Ed Rogers explain why he is "elated" that Paul Beeston will return for one more season as president and CEO after ownership spent several months...

Kraft defiant, loyal — but what if Brady, Belichick are lying?

  For argument’s sake, let’s assume New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is correct. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady had no prior knowledge that the team’s footballs were under-inflated for the AFC Championship Game. The cause for deflation can be explained scientifically rather than an intentional act occurring under the watch of a head coach who was nabbed red-handed breaking...
