For the heads up on what’s happening in sports today, we have it here. Hint: Who's pregnant, who was a former McHammer back updancer and who might be receiving the death penalty.

 

Overtime

Khloe Kardashian and her NBA (National Basketball Association) boyfriend Tristan Thompson are expecting a baby in early 2018. The couple have been together since September 2016. Kardashian was married to former NBA player Lamar Odom. Can Thompson, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, overcome the Kardashian curse

 

Sideline stat

Former MC Hammer backup dancer and current San Jose State assistant football coach, Alonzo Carter's dance moves went viral. Ellen DeGeneres saw it and heard how much Carter was sacrificing to make these player's dreams come true. So she surprised him with a $25,000 check for the school's football program. The video is "2 Legit 2 Quit." 

 

Coaches’ corner

What is the NCAA death penalty? When a school's sports program recieves the death penalty they are not allowed to compete in that sport for at least one year. The problem isn't simply the loss of revenue, jobs and a black eye but it kills their recruiting efforts and disrupts the future of the program. It's only happened a few times in history.
