  • Ohio State captain Mason Jobst measures up as Buckeyes chip away frosty expectations

The Fighting Irish need to shut down opponents to win, which is what they did November 10-11 when they swept Penn State at home with 5-3 and 1-0 wins.

Ohio State basketball wasn't supposed to bounce back this quickly. The Nittany Lions can clinch the title outright with a win Saturday against Iowa. Neither team shot well from 3-point range with Wisconsin hitting just 3-11 (27.3 percent) while the Buckeyes were 4-18 (22.2 percent). "We kept breaking them off and flinging them up there". Team leader Kelsey Mitchell will serve as the biggest threat to UW, as she can rack up points from anywhere.

At 133, Corey Keener dropped a narrow 5-4 decision to No. 2 Luke Pletcher in another strong effort to limit the Buckeyes' team points in the early going.

Trent Frazier scored in double figures for the 13th time in 14 games, but he made just five of his 15 shot attempts.

Adam Lallana sent off for violent conduct in Liverpool U23s defeat
Lallana is 29 years old, a full England worldwide , a former club captain (for Southampton ) and a Liverpool first-team fixture. The incident appeared to begin in the 62nd minute when Lallana and 19-year-old George Marsh slammed into one another.

149: Zain Retherford, PS tf Ke-Shawn Hayes 7:00 (20-4). "Two of the three periods were what we expected". With more than a dozen friends and family on hand, the OH native knew this was his last chance to play in his home state and the senior came to play scoring a season high 19 points on 6-for-11 shooting but an 11-minute, 31 second first half scoring drought ultimately proved to be too much to overcome. Outside of the loss to Penn State, the Buckeyes have been pretty good at home.

Trailing 30-15 in the first half, the Buckeyes went on a 17-0 run to take a 32-30 lead into the half. A first true winning streak since the opening six games of the season was in Illinois' grasp.

No. 2 Mark Hall trimmed the deficit to 15-12 with a 6-4 win over No. 3 Bo Jordan in a rematch of last season's Big Ten and NCAA Finals.

Michigan State's best scoring chances of the first period came in the closing seconds.

Dennis Smith Jr. To Compete In NBA Slam Dunk Contest
The musical lineup for the Adidas #747WarehouseSt NBA All-Star event has been announced and it's looking pretty good. It will begin with the skills challenge, move on to the three-point contest, and conclude with the dunk contest.

"This is my 32nd year doing this, and I've done No. 1 vs No. 2 back in the day, and when people ask me where my favorite place to do a meet is, I will tell you: 'Anywhere it's packed, and anywhere it's No. 1 vs 2, '" Big Ten and ESPN wrestling analyst Tim Johnson told the Centre Daily Times. One main argument against a change is that a big part of the Nittany Lions wrestling team's season ticket sales pitch was an opportunity to guarantee a seat for this dual in the intimate and fan-friendly Rec Hall.

Anthony Cassar got the start at 197 pounds against No. 1 Kollin Moore and sent Rec Hall into pandemonium with a 6-3 upset.

But too many fouls, a few too many missed free throws and just one made shot out of its last eight was a late hurdle IL couldn't clear.

After losing six straight, IL has put together back-to-back wins over IN and Rutgers.

Fiji, NZ, Kenya and South Africa top pools at NZ Sevens
Mr Dunbar said whispers on "the streets" suggested Fiji was keen to replace New Zealand as hosts of the global tournament. Fiji were crowned the champions after coming from behind to beat series leaders South Africa 24-17 in the Cup final.

Junior Nick Nevills (Clovis, Calif.), ranked No. 6 at 285, took on defending NCAA Champion and No. 1-ranked Kyle Snyder in the final match-up. Few things could make stronger cases for the job than what Cassar did Saturday night.
