"We're supposed to be a bad league", Calipari said in the aftermath of his team's Sweet 16 win over UCLA before Florida had even closed out a last-second overtime win to reach an Elite Eight matchup with SC in the East region.
At the same time, North Carolina has to control the boards the same way it did in the Elite Eight. SC opened up its biggest lead of the game 18-14 with 11:24 to go in the first half and led 20-18 at the under eight media timeout with 7:30 remaining.
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he'll lean toward getting his team rested, even if it's at the expense of earning the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Spurs leds 64-40 at halftime. When it was all over, the Cavs were 4-of-26 from 3-point range for a.154 shooting percentage. James would make Spurs power forward David Lee look foolish with a series of sweet dribbling moves.
Despite the playoffs being a near impossibility - and playing, really, for nothing but pride - they are continuing to play hard and well these final games, Monday defeating Carolina 4-3 in overtime. The extra game this week means the Red Wings will have a three-game road trip to end the month. The overall points streak reflects a 7-0-3 mark during that stretch.
Before the run, SC was playing into the same old bad habits, playing passively on offense and settling for threes. Within our conference, we know the potential and I think that our conference has, is full of good coaches, tremendous talent, a lot of young talent, recruiting classes continue to get stronger and stronger and we have three (Kentucky, South Carolina and Florida) in the Elite 8.
Mario Gomez then opened a two-goal lead just before half-time, while Schurrle grabbed his brace with just nine minutes remaining as Germany made it five wins from five, although Azerbaijan's goal means that England are now the only team not to have conceded in the qualifiers so far.

With the game tied at 1-1 in the 88th minute, several supporters took to the field, making a direct beeline to greet some of their apparent favorite players. Manchester United star Eric Bailly and Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha - an ex-England global - were also involved in the match. It's not the only friendly featuring African teams to have an issue on Monday.
Most of the cars were able to make it by clean, except for Jimmie Johnson , who got into the back of Keselowski and sent him spinning into the infield grass. This saw them battle for the lead in the final segment, with a crash for Corey LaJoie causing the caution that proved pivotal to the race result. By this time, Keselowski had raced back into contention and was also able to pass Truex on the final stretch to finish second.
Memphis would go on to lose to UCLA in the championship game. Why they'll lose: Well, maybe people will remember the Boucher injury in the Final Four if Bell gets into foul trouble, or the Ducks struggle to establish an inside presence.
Dana Altman's team proved it could play, beating Kansas in Kansas City to reach the Final Four . Gonzaga has spent the last 19 years riding the high from climbing the midmajor mountain. Even the Lawrence police department was making jokes at his/the team's expense. It seems appropriate in a year when the Final Four will make its first stop in Arizona, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, the first FF in the west since Seattle in 1995, that the first two teams to qualify ...
UNC will be challenged by the Bulldogs' scrappy play style, but ultimately come out on top 71-68 as the better team. Villanova's Kris Jenkins hit a shot at the buzzer in the title game, only seconds after Tar Heels guard Marcus Paige made a double-clutch 3 to tie it.
We have been very fortunate in the last three years that we won most of the races. He grew up with Ferrari which is the next best team.

Hamilton's early pitstop that brought him out behind the slower Red Bull of Max Verstappen certainly worked in Ferrari's favour. But for now Hamilton's only focus will be negotiating the short drag down to turn one to win in Australia .
Victory boosted England's hopes of reaching next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and national team boss Gareth Southgate has talked up the prospects of the 34-year-old making the cut and being named in his tournament squad.

This is the first time since 2011 (VCU) the Final Four features a team making its first appearance. It seems only fitting that the Ducks will play for a chance to reach the national championship game (and possibly play for the title) at the same stadium where the OR football team played their first national championship game at back in 2011.
If they failed to match the contract terms, the Patriots would get the higher of the Saints' two first-round picks (No. 11 overall) in return. Kraft defers to Belichick on all football decisions, so it's unlikely he would comment on Revis 2.0 unless there was something to it.
However he lauds the 18-year-old prospect that has been getting compared to him during this stunning breakthrough campaign. They also hope by slapping a £130million price-tag on his head, it will be enough to scare off all interested parties.
OR stopped its practice early to watch the end of fellow Pac-12 school Stanford's win over Notre Dame. Consider the nation "woke" to OR and Gonzaga as title contenders following impressive Final Four runs. Along with that, UNC has to win the turnover battle. The Bulldogs defeated the West Virginia in a tight match 61-58. It's been rolling at Gonzaga since Mark Few took over in 1999.
He ran it so far past the hole that the ball actually ran off the green. Since last April, Johnson has won five tournaments, including his first major championship at Oakmont and a pair of World Golf Championship events, and assumed the No.
He underwent a MRI on his injured left knee, which ultimately revealed a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise. Durant went through his first on-court workout since the injury on Tuesday before the Warriors defeated the Mavs in Dallas.
The Trump Organization may try to oppose the law citing privacy concerns, but the appearance of intentional secrecy could further endanger his sinking approval ratings .

He continued by explaining that; "But every time he talks, he always shows his appreciation to the club, he is happy, he is happy with the players, his life in Madrid is very lovely, and he is very happy". 'But Antoine is a great player and I think he can go even higher and I hope for him that he'll do it. "I would never force him to say". 29-year-old Gameiro joined Atleti this season after a hitting 29 goals for Sevilla last term, and revealed the secret to the Madrid club's recent ...
So it's hard to understand. It's now come to the point where an admission of the efforts to blackball Colin Kaepernick may be obvious. When you get down to it, Kaepernick is a capable quarterback who raises lots of money for charity and was just standing up (or kneeling down) for a cause that was deeply important to him.
Wales boss Chris Coleman defended his players - indeed, he said Bale wanted to appeal against his caution, something he could only do on the grounds of mistaken identity - but O'Neill remains adamant that both tackles were nasty. "For those Irish fans who have absolutely slaughtered me on Twitter all day today, it's great for me to come on here to set the record straight - I never defended Neil Taylor".
Whenever there's that much money on the line and that much intrigue being sparked, it would seem like the only logical move would be to do the illogical and just go ahead and make it happen. It's whatever I say. But, Rogan says, if you throw boxing rules out the window and fight according to MMA rules, it's no contest: he's putting the odds of a McGregor victory at a staggering one hundred million to one.
The No. 7 Gamecocks are the clear underdogs in the match against the No. 4 Gators, but don't discount them just yet. "I've seen how it struck a lot of top players". Chiozza says this with authority because the Gators have faced the Gamecocks twice this season. "And I'm sure SC feels that way as well". Showalter, a senior, forced overtime with a leaping 3-pointer off one leg with 2.1 seconds left in regulation - pointing to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the crowd - as the ...
They are in the Sweet 16 for the first time since the field expanded to 64, having beaten Duke in the second-round at Greenville, South Carolina , along the way.

According to The Daily Mail and The Guardian , Jermain Defoe will start up-front, and England will change their formation from Tuesday's one-nil loss to Germany in Dortmund.
Those answers could be construed as elusive rhetoric from any other player, but in Johnson's case, it's just the plain truth. "You had better ask them", was the characteristically low-key reply. At Austin Country Club, we got Johnson and Jon Rahm, the young Spanish star, in the 18-hole final, and the spectacle will be remembered for much more than Johnson winning 1 up.
