Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

•So! UConn wins its 78th straight game, and second straight title. Maybe this kind of dominance is good for women's college hoops. After all, the Globetrotters still draw, right?


•Chris Bosh fractured his nose and "mustache bone" after taking an elbow to the face from Antawn Jamison. I'd get all worried about the Raps' playoff chances, but then I remembered they're not Cleveland or Orlando, so what's the point anyway?

•Speaking of the Cavs, what's sadder? Holding the world record for most people wearing Snuggies, or only holding it for a month? Congrats, Los Angeles Snuggies of Anaheim.


•Alex Ovechkin really, really wanted that second goal, and he got it with a second left on an empty net. It ties him with Sidney Crosby for the league lead, and the Caps sweep the season series with Pittsburgh with a 6-3 win. Some goals shouldn't count in the Rocket Richard Trophy race, like empty netters and ones scored on Steve Mason.


•A judge ruled that Charles Rogers owes the Lions $6.1 million of his bonus money for not living up to his contract after he was suspended for substance abuse. This sets a dangerous precedent for all those Lions teams that never lived up to their contract with fans to provide "professional football."


It's Wednesday, and we've got a full house.
