Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:54:34 -0400

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Did baseball’s best current rivalry hold a dress rehearsal Thursday at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches?

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Natural oozes loosey-goosey swagger as he steps onto the floor in a playful mood for UCLA’s shootaround at FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn. He is the young Gretzky with the puck on his stick, the young Tiger on the links, Mike Trout with a bat in his hands. Everyone has a...

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:07:34 -0400

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The hype was warranted. The preseason expectations were well within reason. Kentucky and UCLA were predicted to be two of the best teams in the country based on their fantastic freshmen, and neither has disappointed — a combined 62 wins between them.

Unlikely hero keys Oregon’s survivalMichigan v Oregon

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 02:40:13 -0400

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When Chris Boucher went down, it was unclear whether Oregon could make it past the second round, let alone reach a second straight Elite Eight. Without the team’s leading shot-blocker, third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder, the co-champions of the Pac-12 hardly seemed like a Final Four contender anymore, a three-seed in...
