Conference play is underway in college basketball. There have already been a few quality matchups, and there are plenty more to come. In a story for CBS Local, I list the 10 best to watch in 2017.
I wrote a story for CBS Local about five players you may not be familiar with right now but who could have an impact in March. Among them: Creighton’s Marcus Foster, Saint Mary’s Jock Landale, and Duke’s Amile Jefferson. Read the entire list at CBS Local.
Perhaps you watched Michigan’s nationally-televised game against Virginia Tech last night. If so, you saw the good Wolverines — building a 15-point first-half lead — and the bad, as they fell apart in the final eight minutes. Just a reminder that I’m covering the team for UMHoops.com. I wrote about last night’s game and will continue to produce content throughout the season, so I hope you’ll check it out.
I wrote about the Eastern Michigan athletic department — particularly its football team and athletic director, Heather Lyke — for espnW.com. Lyke has changed the culture at EMU and the football team is likely heading to its second bowl game in program history (and first since 1987). All of this is happening despite concerns over the department’s spending, an issue at many FBS schools. Read all about it on espnW!
With yesterday’s 20-10 win, the Michigan football team has now won 21 straight games against Indiana, and last lost at home to the Hoosiers in 1967. I wrote about the game, and the historical significance of an undefeated home season, for MVictors.com.
Please just read my recap for CBS Local. I’m choosing, at least for now, to leave it at that as opposed to writing a few thousand more words about perhaps the greatest World Series game ever.
March Madness. Super Bowl. Sudden death. There are several two-word phrases that excite sports fans. Here’s another: Game 7. The Cubs and Indians and their long history of failure will play for the World Series trophy tonight in Cleveland. Joe Maddon made some strange bullpen moves last night, but the Cubs won. Read about the important moments and what to look for tonight in my CBS Local recap.
