There were winners and losers in the weekend’s sports. Unlike last night’s Oscars, there was no confusion on who took home the win. La La Land…Moonlight…same same but different.
The Last Night’s Game Team
NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing)
- No looking back. The famed Daytona 500 started the NASCAR season off with a bang. In a race plagued by crashes, Kurt Busch led only one lap, the last lap. His rearview mirror fell off with 30 laps to go so he couldn’t see behind him, but he didn’t need to because he cruised into his first win at Daytona.
NCAA Men’s Basketball (College)
- Cinderella story no more. Gonzaga was the last remaining undefeated men’s college basketball team in the nation. They lost to BYU (Brigham Young University) on Saturday in the last game of the season. You’ll still see them on your March Madness tournament bracket which will be released soon.
- ESPN Films won its first ever Oscar with the documentary “O.J.: Made in America” based on Hall of Famer O.J. Simpson. It also took a look into the culture of celebrity, race, media and the criminal justice system in America.
- In the final game of her college career, University of Washington senior Kelsey Plum set the all-time scoring record for women’s college basketball with 3,397 career points. That would take us 3,397 days to achieve, hence why we write about sports.
- Ever wonder what ESPN stands for? We did. The Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (hence ESPN) was started 38 years ago and reporting sports has never been the same.
