Quinn Cook has twice felt the sting of a shocking early NCAA Tournament loss along with the rush of making one deep push in March. Now Duke's senior leader is down to his final chance to help the Blue Devils reach a Final Four.
This was Duke's worst season in a while — and one of the best in Mississippi State history.
Two wins by No. 14 seeds. Two sons winning games for their father-coaches. The team nobody thought belonged in the field winning a game. The Big 12 starting 0-3.
Ralston Turner needed a change. The coach who recruited him to LSU was gone. The one coming in was friendly but hardly a friend.
Harvard's Tommy Amaker is more than familiar with North Carolina from his days as a standout player and assistant coach at Duke, although that won't make it any easier going against the Tar Heels in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Seven Camels drove in runs, including four from Cedric Mullins, and No. 27 Campbell defeated UNC-Wilmington on the road Wednesday night at Brooks Field.
Kendall Pollard scored 17 points, and Dayton used every bit of its home-court advantage on Wednesday night, rallying for a 56-55 win over Boise State in the First Four.
Campbell smacked 25 hits to sweep a softball doubleheader from host UNC-Wilmington Tuesday at Bozeman Field. The Camels had 13 hits in an 8-3 victory in the opener. Katie Baker then tossed a two-hitter in a 6-1 win in the nightcap.
Lee County senior running back/safety/returner, and at a few points in the last couple seasons, even quarterback, Jerry Pullum has signed to attend and play football at Louisburg College this coming fall.
Geno Auriemma and his UConn Huskies are such heavy favorites to win another women's national title that they've already been penciled in as the inevitable champs. So it seems all they need to do is just roll out the ball to hoist the trophy.
