    Gonzaga kept its perfect season alive and inched closer to making history. The Zags, the No. 1 ranked team in the nation and No. 1 seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament, dispatched No. 5 seed Creighton, 83-65, in Sunday’s Sweet 16 game at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The win was Gonzaga’s 29th this season without a loss and it sends it to a Tuesday night Elite Eight game against the winner of Sunday’s late Michigan-Florida State game. Gonzaga is the first team to enter the NCAA Men’s Tournament undefeated since Kentucky in 2014-15.

The Hawks have put together their winning streak since Nate McMillan took charge as interim coach and have won seven in a row for the first time since Dec. 28, 2016, to Jan. 10, 2017.

    Tara VanDerveer presented flowers to each of her three Stanford seniors and told them sorry their parents or family members couldn't be there in person at Maples Pavilion for senior day as is usual custom. Then, there they all were — moms and dads, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, even a few aunts and uncles — brought in on the big screen via video call sharing their congratulations and love. "This is our very first Zoom senior day," VanDerveer shared in a beautifully touching event given the COVID-19 protocols and restrictions. Kiana Williams scored 12 points in her final home game and defensive stopper fifth-year senior Anna Wilson added three steals playing for the final time on The Farm, and the fourth-ranked Cardinal used a dominant second half to beat California 72-33 on Sunday to close out the regular season.

Kristaps Porzingis returned from missing three games with a back injury and added 18 points. Jalen Brunson contributed 14, Tim Hardaway Jr. chipped in 13 and Dorian...
    The Nets were undersized and undermanned. And for the first time in weeks, they were defeated. Playing not only without Kevin Durant, but also with Kyrie Irving sidelined, the Nets got throttled 115-98 by the Mavericks at Barclays Center. It snapped what had been an NBA-best eight game winning streak, and spoiled a chance to take over first place in the Eastern Conference. Durant has missed seven straight games, while Irving was scratched in the afternoon for maintenance on his surgically repaired right shoulder, which limited him to just 20 games last season. With the Big 3 whittled down to just James Harden, the Nets (22-13) never really stood a chance against Luka Doncic and the Mavericks. “He’s capable of a whole lot on the basketball floor. He makes his teammates better. But it can’t be James [Harden] alone,” Nets coach Steve Nash warned before the game. “We got to...

    Kyrie Irving had 27 points and nine assists, James Harden scored 20 points and the Nets extended their longest winning streak since moving to Brooklyn to eight games with a 129-92 rout of the Orlando Magic on Thursday night. The Nets have the longest current winning streak in the NBA and their longest since a franchise record-tying 14-game run late in the 2005-06 season. They moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn in 2012. This roll has come almost entirely without Kevin Durant, who missed his sixth straight game with a strained left hamstring. "We just want him to stay patient, stay peaceful and when he comes back the world will be on notice again," Irving said. They're explosive enough with their other two All-Stars, improving to 7-2 when Irving and Harden play but Durant doesn't.

    Even without Joel Embiid, the Philadelphia 76ers were scoring every time down the court. But the Utah Jazz didn’t blink. They just gave the ball to Jordan Clarkson. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Clarkson had a season-high 40 points off the bench to send the streaking Jazz past Philadelphia 134-123 in a matchup of conference leaders Monday night despite a career-best 42 points from Ben Simmons.

"It’s pretty cool to play with someone that’s so locked into what his role is and so comfortable in the role."  Utah (23-5) has won eight straight games and 19 of 20.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Interim coach Todd Fitch expects Vanderbilt will have enough players for their final home game of the season. The Tennessee Volunteers might want to play Saturday even more than Vanderbilt with each team viewing matchup as its best and likely last chance to end ugly skids before this very unusual season ends. The Commodores (0-8) have lost eight straight and are trying to avoid the first winless season in school history. Tennessee (2-7) already has tied the longest skid in its vaunted history with six straight losses at a program with only eight seasons with seven or more losses. “Our opportunities are running out,” Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt said. “I think both sides will be aggressive and try to do everything that they can to play at the best of their ability.” Vanderbilt has been through a lot the past two weeks. Coach Derek...

    It’s hard to win football games in the NFL. It’s even harder if you don’t have your shoes on. And if you’re arguing with fans while you don’t have your shoes on you can pretty much forget about it. Though, Browns fans likely won’t forget the display they saw from wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday. During Pittsburgh’s 38-7 dismantling of the Browns, the ever-present cameras caught Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on the sidelines – shoeless – arguing with Steelers fans. 2 catches, 25 yards. Shoes off. Talking trash to fans. #Steelers #Browns pic.twitter.com/lrhcM5Rqo7 — Josh Rowntree (@JRown32) October 18, 2020 Maybe if the Browns had won, or Beckham at least had a good game, the optics of this wouldn’t be so bad. However, not only did Cleveland not win, Beckham amassed only a paltry 25 yards off of two catches. There were eight minutes left in the...

    OAKLAND — A win is a win. But in 2020, because of the short season, a win counts for a little more — 2.7 wins, to be exact. The Oakland A’s ran their winning streak to eight games Saturday, beating the Houston Astros 3-1 to extend their lead in the American League West to 4.5 games. Frankie Montas delivered another seven-inning shutout gem, striking out five Astros. Marcus Semien made history as the first Athletic to start a game with a home run after ending the previous game with a home run. Drawing a 3-2 count to lead off the first, Semien launched left-hander Framber Valdez’s curveball over the left field wall. The quick math using the weighted win value tells us that the eight-game win streak can be tabulated as a 21.6-game win streak. In real life, the A’s are 11-4. “We’re playing great,” manager Bob Melvin said. “Maybe...

To use a boxing term, they looked like a shot fighter. After an 8-0 start a year ago, the New England Patriots wilted the second half of the year. They split their final eight regular-season contests and were then stifled at home by the Tennessee Titans in the wild card round. It marked the first time since 2010 that the club did not reach the AFC Championship Game. This offseason, quarterback Tom Brady and a slew of veterans are...
