Buckeyes upset Hoosiers...Thunder near perfect...Blackhawks streak continues
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Fourteenth-ranked Ohio State kept No. 2 Indiana from clinching its first outright Big Ten title since 1993 with a 67-58 victory over the Hoosiers last night in Bloomington. Indiana can still get the job done with a victory Sunday at No. 7 Michigan.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma City turned the ball over just twice in last night's 122-105 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers, and that ties the NBA record. Russell Westbrook had one of the miscues, but the all-star guard more than made up for it by scoring a game-high 37 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
CHICAGO (AP) — The NHL's Blackhawks set a franchise record with their 10th consecutive victory and extended their points streak to 29 games with a 5-3 win against the Minnesota Wild. Chicago improves to 20-0-3 and snaps a tie with the 1977-78 Montreal Canadiens for the second-longest points streak in league history.
DENVER (AP) — Broncos linebacker Von Miller is pulling a Joe Namath and it's only March. Denver's star pass-rusher is already guaranteeing a Super Bowl title next season. Namath delivered on his guarantee that the Jets would beat the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, but he waited until the night before the game to make his pledge.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Mark Teixeira's (teh-SHEHR'-uhz) stay with the U.S. team at the World Baseball Classic didn't last long. The Yankees slugger strained his right wrist while taking some light swings off a tee in the batting cage, forcing him to withdraw from the tournament even before the Americans could play the Chicago White Sox in the first of their two scheduled exhibition games.
