    After his historic Masters win on Sunday, pro golfer Scottie Scheffler offered sincere thanks to God for his win, saying, “God is in control, and the Lord is leading me.” In an interview on Sunday, Scheffler revealed how humble he is in the face of this momentous moment in his golfing career. During the interview, the 25-year-old Scheffler added, “The human condition is just to make things bigger than they really are. You know, years from now, people may not remember me as a champion and that’s fine. But in the moment, you think it’s a lot bigger deal than it really is.” Indeed, Scheffler didn’t simply win golf’s most prestigious tournament. He also became the fastest winner in history, winning four major PGA Tour events in only 57 days and beating Tiger Woods’ record of the shortest number of days to rise to World No. 1 after winning his first PGA Tour title, Yahoo Sports noted. Scheffler went on to tell fans that his wife laughed at him for accidentally spilling his dinner in the car after he won...
    CINCINNATI (AP) — Former Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller returned to Xavier on Saturday, less than a year after the Wildcats fired him amid an ongoing NCAA investigation that’s stretched nearly five years. Miller replaces Travis Steele, his former assistant who was fired Wednesday after four seasons. “Xavier is thrilled to welcome Sean Miller and his family back to Victory Parkway,” Xavier athletic director Greg Christopher said. “Sean is an elite college basketball coach and a proven winner who understands the expectations, traditions and values of Xavier and the Big East Conference.

He had success in the desert, leading the Wildcats to five Pac-12 regular-season titles, but was embroiled in the investigation his final three years.

Maddie Meyer/Getty Images Nneka Ogwumike will not suit up for Dawn Staley's USA Basketball squad at the Tokyo Olympics.

Nneka Ogwumike — the 2016 league MVP and WNBA players' association president — was left off of the 12-woman USA Basketball roster invited to represent the US at this summer's Tokyo games.

    TWENTY-FIVE years ago England’s football fans really were believing that years of hurt could end when football came home for Euro ’96. This week The Sun reveals the secrets behind our hosting of Europe’s biggest international tournament, starting with hero skipper Tony Adams.  8Tony Adams captaining his country for the Netherlands clash at Euro ’96Credit: Rex Now 54, he tells how after years of battling addiction, he banished his demons in the summer of 1996 and found redemption – and says Gareth Southgate’s side can do the same when the delayed Euro 2020 kicks off this Friday. Now an armchair fan like the rest of us, the former Arsenal defender says: “We can win this! It would mean so much for all of us from Euro ’96.” WHEN England were to brush agonisingly close to glory in 1996, Tony Adams was at the heart of it all. He was the captain the whole team looked to, from the moment he led them on to the pitch at Wembley for the opening match against Switzerland.  8The England legend as he is...

    (WJZ)- The Towson University women’s basketball program had never had a player drafted into the WNBA in the league’s history. That all changed on Thursday night when the Las Vegas Aces selected guard Kionna Jeter with the 36th overall pick in the 2021 WNBA Draft. Jeter, who entered the 2020-21 season as the Colonial Athletic Association’s preseason Player of the Year, helped lead the Tigers to a 13-9 record (8-6 CAA play) last season. The redshirt senior averaged 23 points per game, ranking 10th in the country and leading the conference in scoring. She was named a 1st team All-CAA player, and was a semifinalist for the Becky Hammon Mid-Major Player of the Year award. Jeter started all three years she was with the Tigers, earning 1st team All-CAA honors in each of those seasons while also earning a pair of All-CAA defensive team honors. In 2018-19, Jeter was the leading scorer for the team as the program made its first NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament appearance in history by winning the CAA Tournament. She now joins an Aces squad that...
    BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU freshman Cameron Thomas, whose 23 points per game led the Tigers in scoring, announced Thursday that he is declaring for the NBA draft and intends to sign with an agent. The 6-foot-4 guard from Chesapeake, Virginia, led all Division 1 freshmen in scoring last season while helping LSU advance to the finals of the SEC Tournament and the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Thomas scored 27 points in a victory over St. Bonaventure and 30 points in a loss to Michigan in his two NCAA Tournament games. He finished with the 13th-highest scoring average in LSU history. Only three players have averaged more points than Thomas in their first season at LSU: Pete Maravich (43.8 in 1968), Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (30.2 in 1989) and Bob Pettit (25.5 in 1952). Thomas made his announcement in a social media post that also was disseminated by LSU. He is the latest of several prominent LSU players to declare for the NBA draft. Junior guard Javonte Smart also has done so, along with junior forward Darius Days and...
    Immanuel Quickley Andy Lyons/Getty Images Immanuel Quickley will be defending his crown in Gen.G's NBA 2K Tournament. Quickley popularized the tournament at The University of Kentucky last year during the pandemic. Quickley's involvement opened up E-Sports to a new audience at the school. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. New York Knicks rookie Immanuel Quickley is set to play in the final round of an E-Sports tournament on Saturday.  Quickley is the defending champion of The Hoops at Home NBA 2K Tournament at his alma mater, The University of Kentucky.

But when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down all sports last March, and the tournament was canceled, Quickley opted to close out his college basketball career virtually with his fellow Kentucky students.  Quickley's involvement in the tournament sparked a wave of interest in the event...
    As the data continues to indicate that the pandemic is currently fading in the United States, it has, counter-intuitively, never been more obvious that we are nowhere near returning to societal normalcy. The devastating damage done to the American psyche by a year’s worth of incredibly one-sided, relentlessly pessimistic, and often misleading media coverage has created a psychological quicksand from which there will be no easy or speedy recovery. There are many forces that have the potential to radically change the outlook of the large portion of the public, which is still unreasonably terrified by Covid, but most of them (like the “experts”) have dramatic personal conflicts of interest which make it very difficult for them to so do. One area of American life that would appear to be a rare exception is the realm of sports, but this past weekend made it all-too-clear that they are actually a significant hindrance to the already snail-paced progress we have made in getting back to real life. On the surface, sports would be ideally-suited to being a very significant groundbreaker in...

(AP) — Isaiah Wong scored 20 points to lead five Miami starters in double figures as the Hurricanes beat Pittsburgh 79-73 on Tuesday in the opening game of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Wong added four free throws in the final 29 seconds to seal it as Miami made 22 of 28 at the stripe compared to 5-of-14 shooting for Pitt.

    March Madness will look a lot different next year if the ACC gets its way. The men’s basketball coaches in the ACC voted to propose to that all Div. I teams make the NCAA tournament in 2021 in response to the coronavirus pandemic that led to the cancellation of the tournament last March. According to ESPN, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is leading the movement, which received unanimous support from the conference’s men’s coaches. The vote was first reported by Stadium. The plan would also eliminate non-conference games. “The safety of our players is paramount,” Louisville coach Chris Mack said in a statement supporting the plan. “The ability to incentivize the regular season without mandating a select number of non-conference and conference games provides options and flexibility for all member institutions. As ACC head coaches, we strongly believe it’s in the game’s best interest to have an all-inclusive 2021 NCAA Tournament.” Others have also gone public with the plan, including Wake Forest’s Steve Forbes. “This is what’s best for our student-athletes, fans and the sport of college basketball,’’ Forbes...
