Peter Uihlein has faced his fair share of challenges while on the golf course. Formerly the world's top-ranked amateur golfer, a two-time Walker Cup player, U.S. Amateur winner and, now, a rising star in the professional ranks, Uihlein is no stranger to the pressure the game of golf can present. One challenge he's never faced while on the course, however, is apparently one...

U.S. rules basketball world, but Coach K won't rest easy

  It feels like so long ago, though it's been only a decade. The U.S. was the three-time defending Olympic champion, but had become a mess of a basketball program. The Americans had embarrassed themselves at home in the 2002 world championship, and when they haphazardly put together their team for the 2004 Olympics, nobody should have been surprised if they lost. That's...

The Arizona Cardinals had a nice day in New York on Sunday, taking down the host Giants 25-14. But star cornerback Patrick Peterson has seen better days, getting called for three penalties.

One foe from World Cup says he got better of Harden -- beard-wise

When people think of massive beards in sports, they probably think of hockey players in the playoffs, rugged offensive linemen or Mike Napoli before thinking about basketball players. James Harden of the Houston Rockets might be one of the only NBA stars to sport a grizzly beard, in fact. However, a lesser known basketball player from Serbia thinks his is superior. Former Milwaukee...
