    Two college volleyball teams played out a sensational rally with one member showing just how committed she is by crashing through a table and face planting the floor to keep the ball alive.  With Houston leading the set 5-1, their opponents South Dakota looked like they had won a point as the ball was bumped well beyond the field of play by the Cougars. That's when Kate Georgiades made the play of a lifetime. The libero extended for the ball with her feet in the air to make a miraculous return of the ball, crashing through a table and hitting the deck as she kept the point going. Players on the side rushed over to help Georgiades after putting her body on the line to retrieve the ball.

    THE first British derby ever played at a World Cup finals — and quite possibly the final match for Gareth Bale as an elite footballer. England versus Wales adds a serious dollop of local spice to this global jamboree. 2Gareth Bale is Wales' star man with the key to beat EnglandCredit: Getty We’ve had Welsh actor Michael Sheen geeing up the boyos prattling on about the valleys and “crimson thunder” and the land of our fathers. And we’ve had Gareth Southgate suggesting that he will use a video of Wales players celebrating riotously in their team room, after England were humiliated by Iceland at Euro 2016, as motivation for the clash in Doha. So it seems the perfect time for an Englishman to ask: “Gareth Bale, five-time Champions League winner — was he ever really all that?” No other British footballer has five European Cup winner’s medals and no other British footballer has ever spent nine years on the books of Real Madrid, the most famous club on Earth.

    Piers Morgan claimed that 'even Messi knows' that Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest footballer in history after sharing a hilarious picture on Thursday night. Ronaldo took part in Portugal's World Cup opener with Ghana and made history by becoming the first player ever to score in five consecutive World Cup competitions. As the 37-year-old celebrated with his trademark 'SIU' celebration, he wandered in-front of a banner featuring his Argentinian counterpart and Morgan took the opportunity to share the moment with a cleverly worded caption. Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated in-front of a Lionel Messi banner after scoring against Ghana Piers Morgan (R) was quick to suggest 'Messi knows' Ronaldo is the best player of all time Taking to his social media on Thursday, Morgan wrote: 'Even Messi knows' with a goat emoji added at the end to represent the acronym; greatest of all time.  Veteran forward Ronaldo netted from the spot just after the hour mark to break the deadlock against Ghana in their first group game on Thursday evening.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Cristiano Ronaldo...
    NBA superstar LeBron James believes he is the basketball GOAT. The Lakers star, 37, is currently second on the all-time scoring charts behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. 2James is one of the NBA's most decorated starsCredit: EPA 2LeBron is targeting a fifth NBA title this seasonCredit: AP James heads into the new season hoping to inspire LA to another NBA championship after a dismal campaign last year.

    Saquon Barkley was a Daniel Jones overthrow away from roasting the Cowboys’ Micah Parsons in man coverage for a 75-yard touchdown pass last October in Arlington, Texas. Instead, the ball sailed incomplete over the running back’s slant route, Barkley inadvertently stepped on the ankle of Cowboys corner Jourdan Lewis and the Giants’ 2021 season spiraled into disarray. Barkley and Parsons are friends. They both played at Penn State. They hang out. Barkley claims he never trash-talked Parsons about what should have happened on that play. “No, I don’t think that conversation came up,” Barkley said with a smirk Thursday. “I kind of tried to put that game behind me.” But the Giants have it on tape: proof they have an answer to Parsons. That’s significant because Parsons is the main man standing between the Giants and their first 3-0 start since 2009 on Monday Night Football at MetLife Stadium. “He’s a problem,” Giants coach Brian Daboll said of Parsons. “He’s a dynamic football player. He has rare pass-rush ability. We’re going to have to have a good plan for him....

    All good things must come to an end, and for Serena Williams the end - or what seems like the end - of one of the greatest athletic careers in history came calling in Flushing Meadows on Friday night. The 40-year-old Williams bowed out in the third-round of the US Open, losing to Australian Ajla Tomljanovic 5-7, 7-6, 1-6. As she stood on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium for what may be the final time, social media became a memorial book of sorts on a career that inspired so many from all walks of life. From legends like Tiger Woods and Derek Jeter, to tennis players such as Ons Jabeur and Carlos Alcaraz to NBA and WNBA stars like Breanna Stewart, JR Smith, Isaiah Thomas, and Diamond DeShields, to retired women's athletes of years gone, Serena Williams drew the admiration and attention of all those who love sports. 'You're literally the greatest on and off the court,' Serena's friend Tiger Woods wrote. 'Thank you for inspiring all of us to pursue our dreams. I love you little sis!!!!!!' NFL superstar...

    He was the greatest champion in modern professional sports, and he was one of our own. Bill Russell died Sunday. He was 88 years old. He might have been born in Louisiana, died in suburban Seattle, where he had lived for 50 years, and won his 11 NBA titles in Boston. But Russell was a son of the Bay, most especially Oakland. And while the legendary big man might no longer be with us, his legacy will live forever both in this region and everywhere the sport of basketball is played. Oakland is rightfully called “the City of Champions.” Not only did all three of the city’s professional sports teams have brilliant runs of dominance, but it’s also produced brilliant champion players: Rickey Henderson, Frank Robinson, Joe Morgan, Curt Flood, Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, Paul Silas, Tony Lima, Andre Ward, and Marshawn Lynch, to name a few. But Russell was the greatest champion of them all. He was — and will forever remain — the barometer for greatness in Oakland, the East Bay, the Bay, and the sport of basketball....
    IF the average Manchester United fan had three words to sum up Paul Pogba’s second coming at Old Trafford, most would be unprintable. “An absolute waste” or “what a disaster” would be among the milder responses.

    Isiah Thomas still finds ways to fire shots at his longtime rival, Michael Jordan, by declaring LeBron James the eventual GOAT in basketball.  Isiah Thomas made the coveted NBA75 list alongside LeBron James and Michael Jordan, but Thomas only considers one of them to be basketball’s GOAT — and it isn’t Jordan. Thomas joined ESPN’s First Take to discuss how James is easily one of the greatest all-around players of all time. By the time he retires, there’s a strong possibility James could be exclusively considered the greatest all-around player in NBA history. “We’ve never seen a player who has so thoroughly dominated in every statistical category,” Thomas said. Thomas regards Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James as the two greatest all-around players who dominated the game for 20 years. But once James edges beyond Abdul-Jabbar in scoring, he will become the undisputed GOAT, according to Thomas.Isiah Thomas excludes Michael Jordan from the GOAT conversation as LeBron James is named eventual GOATNotably, Thomas failed to mention Michael Jordan in his debate over the greatest to ever do it.

    Long before he hoisted seven Super Bowl trophies, earned five Super Bowl MVP awards and began the two-decade process of rewriting the NFL record books, Tom Brady was the pride of Serra High. Tuesday, almost 30 years after he took his first snap as a high school freshman, Brady, 44, announced his retirement from football. “This is difficult for me to write, but here it goes: I am not going to make that competitive commitment anymore,” Brady wrote in an Instagram post. “I have loved my NFL career, and now it is time to focus my time and energy on other things that require my attention.” After 22 NFL seasons including 20 with the Patriots, Brady leaves in a style most athletes only dream about. In his final season, the most accomplished player in league history, had a career-best 5,316 passing yards and led the league in touchdown passes with 43. The only thing missing from a storybook ending was an eighth Super Bowl trophy. Brady and the defending champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost in the...

    FOXBORO (CBS) — The Patriots are 1-2 on the season heading into this weekend’s monumental matchup against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Gillette Stadium. One of New England’s longtime leaders is doing his best to tell everyone in the locker room to ignore the noise surrounding Sunday’s matchup and focus on what the Patriots need to do to win football games. But still, it’s hard for special teams captain Matthew Slater to completely ignore the fact that Tom Brady is coming back to Gillette Stadium as a Buccaneer. With all that Brady accomplished during his two decades in New England, Slater offered up plenty of praise for Brady as a football player and teammate on Monday afternoon.

    Gabby Petito update: Her conversations with mother reveal more and more tension with fiancé, affidavit says Democrats spending package is about more than money for unions Where does J.J. Redick rank among the NBA's greatest all-time shooters? It's a question I found myself asking after the sharpshooter announced his retirement on Tuesday following a 15-year career that included stints with the Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks, LA Clippers, Philadelphia 76ers, New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks. Drafted 11th overall by the Magic in 2006 following a standout four-year career at Duke where he was a national player of the year, two-time All-American, two-time ACC player of the year and four-time All-ACC selection, Redick developed into one of the most productive 3-point shooters in NBA history. NBA OFFSEASON GRADES: West | East After an uneven start to his career that left many wondering if Redick's otherwordly shooting ability could make up for some ballhandling and defensive shortcomings in the NBA, Redick finally found his stride in his eighth season after joining the LA Clippers.

    The Fortnite community has been able to witness an array of talented players. Fortnite pros range from the ages of 16 to even 3o-year-olds like Nickmercs. Additionally, they have all had their moments which have segregated them from the crowd. As a result, it becomes very difficult to crown ‘the best Fortnite player of all time’. Across the two chapters and sixteen seasons of Fortnite, we have seen iconic moments like the Ninja and Tfue rivalry, Bugha winning the inaugural Fortnite World Cup, and Clix destroying top players in 1v1 wagers. Recently, Orange, a Fortnite pro for the e-sports organization 9LIVES took to Twitter to ask the age-old question “who was the best player to ever touch the game?” Fans managed to come up with a variety of answers and reasons to support their choices. However, the name that popped up most commonly was none other than Bugha. Kyle ‘Bugha‘ Giersdorf sky-rocketed to fame after he won the only Fortnite World Cup at the age of 16. The win took him from being virtually unknown to now being one of...
    We’re back in the mud of debating whether or not Serena Williams is the greatest athlete to ever live. Early Tuesday morning, ESPN tweeted two photos of Alexis Ohanian wearing a shirt claiming Serena Williams is the greatest athlete ever while he was watching the Australian Open.

I just can’t believe it. How stupid do you need to be in order to believe Serena Williams is the greatest athlete to ever walk the planet? Now, let me make really clear the reality of this situation.

"We react to every little thing today in the sports world, but what just happened with Tom and the Bucs will stand the test of history. This is not going to go away. When I came into the NFL 50 years ago, if you told me some quarterback was going to win seven Super Bowls, I would have said that was not possible. ... I do think Tom belongs in the conversation.

    All hail King Tom Brady! The superstar quarter-back's record-breaking 7th Super Bowl victory yesterday means he's now won it more times than any NFL franchise, let alone any other player. And the fact he's done it again at the age of 43, after leaving the team that he'd been with for 20 glorious years, makes it all the more extraordinary and admirable. So perhaps it's little wonder that many are now calling Brady the 'Greatest Sportsman of All Time'. Indeed, social media has been buzzing with such hyperbolic claims from the moment Brady was awarded his fifth Super Bowl MVP award last night, breaking his own record of four. Don't get me wrong; he's a magnificent athlete with an extraordinary work ethic and will-to-win that places him in the very highest echelons of sporting achievement. But the G.O.A.T? No chance. All hail King Tom Brady! The superstar quarter-back's record-breaking 7th Super Bowl victory yesterday means he's now won it more times than any NFL franchise, let alone any other player As for the greatest when it comes to all...
    Tom brady can be described as the ‘GOAT’, the greatest of all time, in his sport. No one has won more than him in American football, both professional and college, and at 43 he has put one more notch in his already intense record book. In the year in which many saw him in retirement, Brady has shown that he is still the most decisive quarterback of the moment and already looks down on other legends such as Peyton and Eli Manning, Joe montana and even the mythical Otto Graham, which thus far was the only one with seven championships before the NFL had its current form. To a large extent, this title is also due to one of his best partners in the field, Rob gronkowski, who he took from New England Patriots. Together they have won their fourth Vince Lombardi trophy, a first in Tampa for both. The records that he already had in force and those that he has broken after the 55th edition of the Super Bowl speak for themselves. Only the most ‘ultras’ can deny...

    LeBron James continues to impress, even in the latter stages of his career. The four-time MVP put on an impressive performance against the Detroit Pistons to get the Lakers the win. The game went into double-overtime, and James made two clutch threes to ice the game and get the Lakers back to winning ways. LeBron continues to impress NBA legend Isiah Thomas spoke after the game on LeBron’s performance. Thomas was very happy with the way James played, especially at his age. He noted that it isn’t very often that players of his age play every game, including overtimes and long minutes. Thomas added that James continues to break records set by the very best in the NBA on a nightly basis. “I’m definitely impressed watching him because he’s doing it at age 36. And he’s playing back-to-back night, he’s playing overtimes, and then he’s taking and making all the big shots every single night. When I say every single night that LeBron James steps out, he’s breaking a record and passing some of the most historical figures that we...

CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "Well, if you're asking me who is the greatest quarterback I've ever played against, I'm gonna say Joe Montana.

"There's nothing I can say. He is the GOAT. He is one of the greatest players this game has ever seen and I'm quite sure, unless [Patrick] Mahomes tries to break his record, there's nobody that's gonna beat that record."
