Martin Luther King weekend action


Upset: #25 Penn State over #23 Nebraska, 93-73.

#11 Miami barely survived Florida State, 60-57.

Florida beat LSU 62-58, snapping the Tigers’ 10-game winning streak.

Please, not again: Tennessee defeated Vanderbilt, and Vol forward Shekinna Stricklen scared the crap out of her team when she clutched her knee and started screaming. It looks like it’s just a knee strain, though.

Elena Delle Donne also sustained a leg injury in Delaware’s victory over Northeastern.

Kentucky remains undefeated in SEC play after today’s win over South Carolina.

Cal took Utah, making for a sweep of the Pac-12 mountain schools.

ESPN’s Graham Hays has a (so far) weekend wrap up, which he calls “all hail the Big Ten.”

Many smaller schools have games tomorrow, on the Martin Luther King holiday.

Club ball:

Exodus Coach Apache Paschall was laid to rest yesterday.

NCAA business:

The NCAA Division I Board of Directors wants a new stipend proposal, since the one to give athletes $2,000 a year was tabled.
