What Bob Huggins had to say after the loss to Kansas
“I wouldn’t say (Kansas) shot us down, I would say we shot ourselves in the foot,” said Huggins. “We missed so many one and two footers. We missed so many step-in shots…. we go 12-of-22 from the free throw line, and that wasn’t because we had a bad free throw shooter up there. We continue to miss free throws (in spite of) how many we shoot (at practice).”

Kansas impresses media in win over West Virginia
The Jayhawks’ games against the Mountaineers are often described as fistfights or rock fights. And West Virginia got the better of Kansas early on. Thanks to freshman Oscar Tshiebwe, an NBA-bodied first-year player with a terrific motor, West Virginia went into the locker room up 30-24, with Tshiebwe dropping a double-double. From Kansas’ side, giving up 12 first-half offensive rebounds and 10 first-half turnovers wasn’t the ideal start the Jayhawks hoped for against the nation’s No. 16 team.

Deshaun Watson rallies Texans to 16-point comeback win over Bills

Watson flexed both arms as the crowd at NRG Stadium went wild. On the next play, Houston won the AFC wild-card game on a 28-yard field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn.

“We were making a playcall,” Love said. “We were in the bonus, and Chris Paul was on me, so I felt swing it to me and try to throw it in the post, see if they double-team and get a good shot out of that. That’s not what we did, and yeah, I was frustrated.”

5 Reasons the Dave Matthews Band Should Be in the Hall of Fame
If the Dave Matthews Band’s legendary live concerts are any indication, a potential appearance at the Public Auditorium on May 2, 2020 in Cleveland would be epic. The group tours every year in the U.S., and often plays internationally, as well – so they’ll arrive sharp as a tack. They’ve also retained an easy sense of interplay that turns familiar songs like “#41” into these extended musical explorations. (Featured on 1996’s Crash, that tune was originally known as “41 Police” because of the reggae-tinged New Wave group’s obvious influence.)
