- Kyrie Irving - Former Duke star - for a year anyway - hit a layup with 2.6 ticks left as the Caveliers stunned the Celtics, 88-87, in Boston. The layup capped a 12-0 run to close the game for the Cavs, who are tied with the Bucks for the 8th playoff spot.
- Novak Djokovic - After winning the Australian Open in a mere six hours over Rafael Nadal, Djokovic has now won four majors in the past 12 months. Pretty remarkable. If he wins the French Open, he'll hold all four major championships simultaneously. Pretty dominating.
- Towson Men's Basketball - There is finally reason to smile at Towson - they won. The win, over UNC-Wilmington (8-13), snapped a 41-game losing streak for the Tigers. It was their first win since December 29th, 2010 at LaSalle.
- UConn Men's Basketball - After a pair of losses to Cincinnati and Tennessee, this game against Notre Dame at home was just what the doctor ordered. Freshman phenom Ryan Boatright was back and they were at home. None of that mattered as the fell at the hands of the Irish, 50-48. The Huskies fell to 4-4 in Big East play, they dropped out of the Top 25, and their schedule doesn't get any easier - they travel to #14 Georgetown on Wednesday.
- NFL Pro Bowl - For starters, Hot Chelle Rae performed the pregame show. Yeah, I know, who? Second, the game started off with a rain of boos from the
seatsfans as the first series was......unispired, to say the least. The AFC won, 59-41. At one point, the center and a defensive lineman stood straight up on a play and didn't move. No, really, they didn't move. Terrible display from the NFL on this one.
- Knicks Basketball - The hype at the beginning of the season suddenly seems a distant memory with fans kicking themselves for believing this year would be different. The Knicks got blasted by the Rockets on Saturday, dropping them to 7-13 on the season. Maybe they need to share the ball a little more - they're averaging a paltry 18.5 assists per game. If they weren't shooting nearly 80% from the free throw line, they might not have 5 wins. Pretty pathetic considering MSG is the "mecca" of basketball.
