  • Strugglesville: Cavs blow big lead, eke by Magic 104-103

    There was none of the usual postgame chatter or music in the Cavaliers' locker room. The mood was somber and quiet. "Right now, we're in Strugglesville," LeBron James said, "but it felt like a win. We needed it. Definitely." Isaiah Thomas made two free throws with 11 seconds left and, after wasting a 23-point lead, host Cleveland came up with a stop in the frantic final seconds to beat Orlando 104-103 on Thursday night and snap a losing streak at four games....

  • Landale seals Gaels’ ‘huge win’ at No. 13 Gonzaga with 26 points

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Home losses are rare for Gonzaga, even against St. Mary's. The Gaels relied on experience and their characteristically efficient offense to pull the upset Thursday night.

"You have to have experienced guys and big guys to win here, and our guys handled the atmosphere," St. Mary's head coach Randy...

But what about quadruple-threats? Or quintuple threats? As far as they go, Carrie Brownstein – the actor-singer-guitarist-screenwriter-memoirist – stands pretty much alone.

  • No. 15 Gonzaga holds off USF

    Fully healthy, USF would have an awfully tough time knocking off Gonzaga. Without two starters Saturday, the Dons still made things awfully tough for the 15th-ranked Zags. Gonzaga pulled out a 75-65 decision on the Hilltop. Chase Foster, a senior swingman averaging 11.5 points per game, sat out because of a sprained ankle he suffered early in the Dons' 67-65 loss at Loyola Marymount on Thursday night.
