Coby White Makes North Carolina's Offense Beautiful Coby White Makes North Carolina's Offense Beautiful

There may be no better match of team style and player than 2019's North Carolina squad and freshman point guard Coby White. The normally pretty fast Tar Heels made the jump into warp speed this season, averaging more possessions per game than any other tournament team, and both superficially and practically, White is…

Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard got honest with the media today, slamming the decision-makers at his club over their apparent reluctance to sign Jacob deGrom to a contract extension, and also their travel itinerary. They’re forcing the players to go to Syracuse, for god’s sake!

Mike Smith Flopped So Hard His Mask Flew Off Mike Smith Flopped So Hard His Mask Flew Off

Calgary Flames goalie Mike Smith is no stranger to the fine art of flopping, but sometimes, when you really want a call to go your way, you can’t just flail your arms and hope an official notices. Sometimes, you have to up your game and add some practical effects, like Smith did towards the end of Saturday’s game…

Way-Too-Cocky Boxer Taunts Opponent, Gets Knocked Out Way-Too-Cocky Boxer Taunts Opponent, Gets Knocked Out

The undefeated French fighter Sabri Sediri had picked up a pair of knockdowns early on in his super lightweight match on Saturday against Sam Maxwell in Leicester, so in the late 10th round, it wasn’t too ridiculous for him to feel confident in the result. With 20 seconds remaining, Sediri looked loose and cocky in…

The Hurricanes Are Getting Even Better At This The Hurricanes Are Getting Even Better At This

When we last checked in with the Carolina Hurricanes, just a few days ago, they had pulled off maybe their best ever home victory celebration yet—an homage to Duck Hunt, with sticks for guns and gloves for ducks. But on Saturday night, the ’Canes turned to another sport for inspiration.

UC Irvine Anteaters Snack On Kansas State Wildcats In Upset UC Irvine Anteaters Snack On Kansas State Wildcats In Upset

The Blue Jackets Should Either Relax Or Panic The Blue Jackets Should Either Relax Or Panic

This is a now-or-never final stretch for Artemi Panarin’s Columbus Blue Jackets, with at least a few of their key players on the way out after this season, and right now the team is seated on the “never” side of affairs. The Blue Jackets lost to the lowly Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night, which, coupled with a…

Rays Bravely Decide To Pay Blake Snell More Than The League Minimum Rays Bravely Decide To Pay Blake Snell More Than The League Minimum

Less than two weeks after Blake Snell made it known how miffed he was that his team would pay him only barely more than the league minimum the year after he won the Cy Young, the Rays pitcher has signed a much richer five-year extension with the club. He’ll get paid about eight times the $573,700 that he was set to…

This Is The Lightning At Their Most Beautiful This Is The Lightning At Their Most Beautiful

The Lightning and the Capitals are playing an awesome, intense back-and-forth game tonight, and Tampa Bay took a 4-3 lead in the second period on a PP goal that was pretty much the pinnacle of what their forwards can achieve.

Hockey East Won't Discipline Anybody For Racist Remark Towards Providence Player Hockey East Won't Discipline Anybody For Racist Remark Towards Providence Player

Hockey East’s investigation into an unspecifed racist comment that was made towards Providence forward Vimal Sukumaran during a game last Friday against Boston College has ended in a very unsatisfying way, as the conference says that, despite the “inappropriate language” used against Sukumaran, they can’t discipline…

The Blues Ruthlessly Tormented Oilers Goalies Tonight The Blues Ruthlessly Tormented Oilers Goalies Tonight

The St. Louis Blues should be heading to the playoffs next month, and the Oilers are definitely heading back home to lick their wounds and wonder what went wrong again this year, and the difference between those two outlooks was on full display in Missouri tonight. Blues forwards were practically laughing at Oilers…

How Big A Threat Is Saint Mary's? How Big A Threat Is Saint Mary's?

Ignore the seedings. According to the analytics, one of the most evenly matched games of the NCAA Tournament’s first round isn’t an 8-9 or 7-10 match-up, but the battle between Villanova, the sixth seed in the South Region, and 11th-seeded Saint Mary’s. Kenpom, which rates Villanova as 26th in the country and Saint…

Murray State Vs. Marquette Should Be Sick As Hell Murray State Vs. Marquette Should Be Sick As Hell

Thank goodness Murray State made it into the NCAA Tournament, because before last Saturday it seemed worryingly possible that Ja Morant and his Racers might be hanging out in the NIT this postseason. But after finishing as OVC regular-season co-champions with Belmont and then winning their conference tournament over…

Over at ESPN, Jeff Passan has a breakdown of the clubhouse issues the Philadelphia Phillies faced in the first season of Gabe Kapler’s management last year, and it turns out they might be more relatable than you thought—when their jobs got pointless and shitty, the Phillies slacked off and played video games instead.
