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

DeAndre Hopkins' Favorite 4th-Grade Memory? Eating Pudding In Class

The pictures in this post come to us from a tipster, whose fiancée went to elementary school in Clemson, South Carolina with Houston Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins.

Watch Messi Break The All-Time La Liga Scoring Record

Lionel Messi became the top scorer in La Liga history with this 72nd minute goal against Sevilla, his second of the game. It was Messi's 252nd league goal, which topped Athletic Bilbao legend Telmo Zarra's 251, who did most of his damage in the 1940s. A few minutes later Messi got his hat trick, so the new record… » 11/22/14 4:02pm Yesterday 4:02pm

Kobe Bryant Airballs From Siberia As The Lakers Lose by 34

The other day my colleague Albert Burneko worried that Nick Young's return had improbably elevated the Lakers from "gonzo terribleness to bland mediocrity." Worried because the Lakers' spectacular brand of suck has been the most entertaining subplot early in this surprisingly dismal NBA season, and that would be… » 11/22/14 2:54pm Yesterday 2:54pm

Marshall Escapes Doom Twice, Scores Wild Tip-Drill Touchdown

Marshall's undefeated, though you wouldn't know it by watching ESPN or listening to the college football playoff committee. You don't get to that kind of record without some luck, though, and that's what the Thundering Herd had on this play against UAB today when Rakeem Cato somehow escaped a sack, then threw a pass… » 11/22/14 1:23pm Yesterday 1:23pm
