first_imgSo it is with Sporting News’ penultimate college football rankings. Georgia also fell out of the top four by way of their embarrassing 37-10 loss to LSU, which was enough to net the Tigers the No. 1 spot in SN’s bowl season rankings. Oklahoma moved up to take the Bulldogs’ place after their 30-23 overtime win over Baylor. Oregon also moved just outside the top four with a dominant 37-15 win over Utah in the Pac-12 championship game.What does the rest of the top 25 look like after conference championship weekend?

But they managed to come back, locking their place in the final Playoff field. The Buckeyes, who likely wanted to claim the No. 1 seed among the final four teams, might not even be a top-two seed after Saturday’s comeback win.last_img read more

Newton 35, Ark City gold 33Individual results: Mekenna Adams and Kylie Aufdengarten turned in the best performance by placing 10th, going 3-2 on the day. The pair beat Bishop Carroll in their opening match 8-3.  The two then faced a very good Wichita Independent team and fell behind 2-5.  The pair of Wellington players tied the match up and eventually got it to 7-7 where they played a tiebreaker. Again, Adams and Aufdengarten fell behind 2-5 but took a lead at 7-6, and dropped three straight points losing the match 9-7 in the tiebreaker.   “That was a tough one and that one hurts,” said Brian Aufdengarten, Wellington tennis coach. Wichita Independent then won 8-5 and 8-2 in their next two matches to make the finals. The Wellington pair rebound quickly and beat Andover 8-1 and Winfield 8-1.  In their final match they fell behind again early 1-5, and again tied it up and went to another tiebreak against Goddard.  But again came up short losing 5-7 in the tiebreaker. Jacelyn Buck finished 15th going 2-3 on the day.  Buck won her opening match over Salgado from Kapaun 8-4. Then she almost had one of the biggest upsets of the tournament playing Stevens from Bishop Carroll and losing 8-6.   “Dang, what a match, that girl is good,” Aufdengarten said. “She went on and took fifth, what a match for Jacelyn.” Buck then lost her next two matches to Newton and Wichita Independent.  In her final match she beat Hoag from Ark City 8-4.   “Very nice day for Jacelyn, very proud of her performance,” Aufdengarten said. Abby Lowe finished 17th going 3-1.  Lowe lost to Cadman from Independent 4-8 in her first match then won the rest of her matches.  Lowe beat Molinar from Campus, then beat Trout from Independence, and Nihart from Winfield in her final match.   “Abby rebounded well, but probably didn’t play her best tennis today.” Aufdengarten said. “She found a way to win all day.” Lauryn Snipes and Avery Rusk 22nd going 2-3.  The pair lost to Ark City to start the day, then beat Collegiate 8-3 in their second match.   “They lost a close match to Winfield and again turned around the next match to beat Kapaun.  In their final match they lost to Goddard.   “These two are still learning to play,” Aufdengarten said. “They are very athletic and win a lot on that.” ————— Varsity girls volleyball: Chaparral TournamentWellington vs Belle Plaine Wellington- 16 Belle Plain -25Wellington 23 Belle Plain -25Wellington vs Conway SpringsWellington 15 Conway 25Wellington 14 Conway 25Wellington vs Medicine LodgeWellington- 25 ML-15Wellington-25.

first_imgAndre Drummond could be on the move ahead of the Feb. 6 trade deadline, but it appears he won’t need to search for a new home in Georgia.The Hawks are “no longer engaging” with the Pistons on a deal for the two-time All-Star, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes. Atlanta emerged as a potential destination earlier this month, but the Hawks are comfortable walking away from Drummond and considering other options ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft and free agency, per Haynes. NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Latest news, rumors, targetsWhile the Hawks are out on Drummond, they may be considering a trade involving another big man. Haynes reports that Thunder center Steven Adams is “on the Hawks’ radar.” The 26-year-old is one of a few Oklahoma City players who could soon be part of trade conversations. Adams is solid rebounder, screen setter and finisher in the paint and would pair nicely with Trae Young. In terms of trade mechanics, Adams is on the books for $25.8 million this season and $27.5 million in 2020-21, so it would be a challenge for most teams to land him. Fortunately for the Hawks, they have multiple expiring contracts (Chandler Parsons at $25.1 million, Evan Turner at $18.6 million, Allen Crabbe at $18.5 million) and could offer a first-round pick acquired from the Nets or one of their own selections.If Atlanta ultimately chooses to let the deadline pass without a major change to its roster, the front office could then pursue Drummond in free agency without losing any assets, assuming he declines the $28.8 million player option on his current contract. The Hawks own the worst record in the Eastern Conference (9-32), so there isn’t a great reason to rush into a deal for a nonexistent playoff push.Drummond will still be a player to watch over the next few weeks, as multiple teams have asked about him, including the Knicks. But don’t expect to see him in a Hawks jersey — at least not this season.last_img read more

first_imgLet’s explain this in a hockey sense. You are the Maple Leafs. You and your friend Stanley have been best buds for years and hung out pretty regularly. But now… you and Stanley can only interact from a distance for the safety of the rest of your friends & family. #SocialDistancing #StayHomeA post shared by Hockey Collective (@hockeycollective) on Mar 24, 2020 at 8:00am PDT My first “social distancing” art project is going to make fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs want to keep their distance from me, I suppose. @UniWatch pic.twitter.com/pRp2axcVGC— Ed Hughes 🏈🏀🥍⚽️🎙 (@Raleigh_Anncr) March 22, 2020The Leafs have been social distancing from the Cup for over 50 years.— Tej Dhaliwal (@DrDangles87) March 19, 2020It burns even more when you realize that the Stanley Cup’s full-time home is at the Hockey Hall of Fame, which is roughly a five-minute walk from Scotiabank Arena.MORE: When, how many times the Stanley Cup hasn’t been liftedAs if that wasn’t bad enough, several fans online have realized that a resumption of the 2019-20 season almost certainly means that Toronto would be playing games much later than usual. The postseason in the modern NHL lasts well into June every year, but the Leafs have been, um, far from successful in the modern NHL. View this post on Instagram One thing that seems to unite hockey fans from all over is poking fun at the Toronto Maple Leafs, the franchise with the longest-active Stanley Cup drought despite representing one of the most feverish fan bases in the sport.It’s a tradition that’s grown with every passing year, and it’s something that even COVID-19 can’t stop.MORE: Could NHL implement compliance buyouts following shutdown?With most people practicing social distancing these days, the phrase has become part of the global lexicon. Naturally, some have chosen to have fun with the otherwise-serious term, even using the beleaguered Leafs as a real-life example of how to properly execute the practice.center_img The coronavirus pandemic has forced almost everyone inside while putting every facet of daily life on hold.Hockey’s no exception — the NHL paused its scheduled games on March 12 and there is no end to the shutdown in sight. Despite the necessary measures to prevent the spread of the virus, people haven’t lost their sense of humor. Even when they make the playoffs, which has been customary in recent years, they rarely advance past the opening rounds. The Maple Leafs have never played hockey in June, coming closest over 20 years ago during the Mats Sundin-led heydays, but a resumption of the regular season or a jump straight into the playoffs would almost certainly mean that summer NHL hockey would take place in Toronto for the first time.It’s a strange possibility that hasn’t been lost on fans.AHAHAHAHAHA! @MapleLeafs – We May finally get some May and June hockey! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 #NHL https://t.co/4j8g0FMR2v— Darcy_Lussier (@Darcy_Lussier) March 21, 2020NBA and NHL are suspended and Tom Brady is leaving the New England Patriots.We are about to live in a world where the New York Knicks and Toronto Maple Leafs are playing in June and the Buffalo Bills are the team to beat in the AFC East.— Canadian Dragon (@majingir) March 17, 2020Only way the Leafs could play in June— Red (@kylecalloway20) March 11, 2020For the first time in over 50 years the @MapleLeafs may be playing in June #LeafsForever #LeafNation— J.
