Word of the Day

Buzzer beater — A shot scored just as the clock expires at the end of a period of play, especially one at the end of a game resulting in a win for the shooter’s team.

Quote of the Day

“I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. I can’t accept not trying.”

— Michael Jordan

The Final Two

From the Final Four to the Final Two. On Saturday, Indianapolis played host the Final Four and games could not have been any different. Baylor blew out Houston, 78-59. However, Gonzaga won a thriller over No. 11 seed UCLA, 93-90, on a last-second shot. It was one of the most memorable games in recent NCAA Tournament history. Tonight, No. 1 seed Baylor and No. 1 seed Gonzaga will meet for the National Championship. Gonzaga is trying to put a bow on its perfect season. The game tips at 9:20 p.m. on CBS.
