Mark Cuban Takes Shot At NFL For Its Opposition To Sports Betting

On Friday, a judge shot down a New Jersey law that would have allowed sports betting, to the satisfaction of the four major American sports leagues, all of which opposed it—and all of which profit immensely from bettors' interest. As Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said of every owner and executive, including himself,… » 11/23/14 12:53pm Today 12:53pm

D-III School Beats Opponent At The Buzzer For The Second Straight Year

Division III college Hampden-Sydney beat the University of Mary Washington on an unusual buzzer-beating three Saturday. After a flubbed Mary Washington inbound pass, Hampden-Sydney's Mike Murray made a desperate three for the 58-57 win.

Maple Leafs Return To Saluting Fans, World Returns To Axis

We can put this to rest now, I think. Four days after a brutal loss that had many predicting impending meltdown, and two days after Saluteghazi, the Maple Leafs beat the Red Wings 4-1, and, yes, raised their sticks to the fans. » 11/23/14 11:25am Today 11:25am

Jameis Winston Wouldn't Take "No" For An Answer From That Official

In the third quarter of Florida State's 20-17 win over Boston College, Jameis Winston attempted, twice, to physically wrest an official out of the way so he could run a play.

Justise Winslow Hurdles Stanford Player's Head To Block His Shot

In case you hadn't heard, Duke freshman Justise Winslow is pretty athletic. So athletic, in fact, that he can high-jump over opponents to block their shots, as happened tonight against Stanford in the Coaches vs. Cancer championship game. Sure, it was all for naught as the player had already been fouled, but this… » 11/22/14 11:16pm Yesterday 11:16pm

The Warriors Ran A Beautiful Play For An Alley-Oop Last Night

Played well, basketball is a spectacularly beautiful game. Despite having a 9-2 record, the Golden State Warriors offense has frequently been bogged down by careless turnovers. The team has a trigger-happy reputation, but it's actually their defense—tied for best in the league with the Spurs—that has won them most of… » 11/22/14 6:55pm Yesterday 6:55pm

Bethune-Cookman Wins Florida Classic With Gutsy Two-Point Conversion

Bethune-Cookman has been playing Florida A & M for nearly a century, and has come out on the wrong end of the scoreline far more often than they've won what's now known as the Florida Classic. (The worst? A 97-0 beatdown in 1960.) Things weren't looking too hot for them today, either, as the Rattlers stopped them in… » 11/22/14 5:59pm Yesterday 5:59pm
