2019 Ingles Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Semi-finals

Wofford 81  ETSU 72

(Asheville, NC) – As far as shot-making goes, the coaches on both sidelines thought they had seen everything imaginable over the past four years from Wofford’s senior sharp-shooter Fletcher Magee. The Southern Conference’s Player of the Year, on the brink of NCAA history, is known for his variety of high-risk, no-look, long-range three pointers with defenders draped all over him. However to make one with the season on the line is enough to leave even the most experienced and traveled coaches shaking their heads. 

With just over eight minutes remaining in their back and forth semifinal matchup with ETSU, the Terriers watched as their ten point lead had been trimmed to four, and could feel the momentum …

Quarterfinal Action at the Big South Conference

No March tournament has the potential for more madness than the Big South Conference Tournament (being held in Buies Creek, North Carolina on the campus of Campbell University). Parity is the name of the game in the Big South as the top eight teams in the conference were separated by a mere three games in the regular season. It would not be a shock if any of the remaining teams win the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Big South storylines to follow:

Radford tries to repeat as tournament champion but comes in limping. They lost three of their final five games. The Highlanders will lean heavily on Ed Polite Jr and Carlik Jones (last year’s Big South Tournament …

2019 Ingles Southern Conference Basketball Championships

VMI 96   Western Carolina 83

(Asheville, NC) – When it comes to basketball in March, it’s common knowledge that the team that defends the best will have the upper hand in typically close, tense games. But in the opening game of the 2019 Ingles Southern Conference Basketball Tournament Friday night, defense took a backseat as VMI (8-24, 4-14) rode the red-hot shooting of sophomore Bubba Parham to run past Western Carolina 96-83 in the U.S. Cellular Center. 

Parham, the SoCon’s leading scorer at 20.8 points per game, dropped a career high 41 on six of eight shooting from behind the arc to lead all scorers. Parham’s effort ties him for the 7thmost points in SoCon Tournament history, and are …

Austin Dillon Aims To Win Back-To-Back Daytona 500s

Austin Dillon aims to win back-to-back Daytona 500s

Last year’s dramatic last-lap win of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season-opening Daytona 500 produced one of the most talked about finishes in recent memory. Driving the iconic No. 3 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for his grandfather Richard Childress – the same car that the late Dale Earnhardt won the 500 with in 1998 – Austin Dillon maneuvered past final-lap contact to take the checkered flag.

This year he will try to become only the fourth driver in history to win back-to-back Daytona 500s. The last time it happened was 1994-95 with Sterling Marlin – the first two Cup Series victories of Marlin’s career. Only three drivers in history have won back-to-back …

Predicting The Arizona Cardinals 2019 NFL Draft 1st Round

The Arizona Cardinals are officially in rebuild mode.  Sure, they still have a couple pieces from the past hanging around in Larry Fitzgerald and Patrick Peterson.  But for the 2019 NFL Draft, they hold all the cards, or at least the most important one; the first overall pick.

There are four areas that the Arizona Cardinals MUST fulfill in this draft or in free agency.  They need to get another Cornerback to go on the other side and complement Peterson.  They also need to get another Wide Receiver to go along with Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald, and eventually take Larry’s place.  They also need to sure up an offensive line that had five backups starting for most of last …
