The Last Night’s Game Team 

College Basketball

Games resumed last night in the Sweet 16 and the Purdue Boilermakers are headed back to the Elite Eight for the first time in 19 years. They upset the favored Tennessee Volunteers and with that loss, the last perfect bracket in the country is no longer. THAT’S ALL FOLKS

Men’s and women’s Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games continue this weekend. HOW TO WATCH



All good things come to an end and the saying rings true for the Caroline Hurricanes (NHL – National Hockey League) victory celebrations. The team has orchestrated outlandish celebrations including an elaborate game of duck, duck, goose and a March Madness slam dunk celebration complete with a hoop on the ice. The celebration has created a buzz around the team but they’re now focusing on the playoffs, which start in April. NO ENCORE

Yesterday was a day to celebrate - Opening Day in Major League Baseball (MLB). But it was a day of sadness for a Phoenix area spring training mecca. Don and Charlie’s Restaurant, known for their incredible collection of autographed baseballs, was robbed. The thieves made off with 34 baseballs worth $600,000. PRICEY POSSESSIONS


coaches’ corner

Golden State Warriors’ Jordan Bell (NBA – National Basketball Association) thought it would be funny to charge incidentals to his coach’s room in the team hotel but no one was laughing. Bell was suspended for one game for his antics. This isn't the first time he's done this but apparently the $15 candle from this incident was the straw that broke the camel's back. WHAT’S MY AGE AGAIN?


What to watch

Don’t quit your day job. Indianapolis Colts (NFL - National Football League) quarterback Andrew Luck and Los Angeles Angels (MLB) outfielder Mike Trout (who recently signed the biggest contract in North American sports) break out the moves in a 70s-style dance off to promote a new sports drink. OH MY DISCO
