Fightin’ Irish beat Syracuse

In College Sports by Ashleigh Binder

What a shocker! Syracuse was finally handed its first lost and it was to a non-ranked Notre Dame team. The final score ended up being 67-58.

Lebron Jordan?

In Basketball by Ashleigh Binder

Last night Lebron James and the Miami Heat welcomed rival Los Angeles Lakers. This is always a great match up to see the leader of 2000’s, Kobe Bryant, and the new school prodigy, Lebron James. I might be giving James a little too much credit since he still has zero rings, but no one can deny he was built to …

Russell Westbrook Gets Contract Extended

In Basketball by Ashleigh Binder

Russell Westbrook, point guard for Oklahoma City, has reportedly signed a five-year/$80 million contract. The 23-year-old has come under fire a lot for his lack of maturity on the court.

Eli’s Back

In Football by Ashleigh Binder

After a mild scare, Eli Manning is back at practice. Yesterday, he left the Giants’ practice facility early and cancelled his press conference after coming down with a stomach bug. Had he missed any more practice, I think most Giants fans would begin to panic as all offense on Sunday will most likely come from his arm. This is becoming …

End of Big 3?

In Basketball by Ashleigh Binder

Well, I cannot say I did not see this eventually happening. Boston’s Big 3, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett, may be broken up before the end of this season.

Another One Bites the Dust….

In Football by Ashleigh Binder

Well, can’t say I didn’t see this coming.  After the Indianapolis Colts fired both the vice president and general manager of the team, the two just happen to be father and son Bill and Chris Polian, they can add another name to that list. Head coach Jim Caldwell has officially been fired after a miserable 2-14 season.  The 2-14 record …
