This and That PDF Print E-mail

Week of March 20th, 2017 

Each week I'll write about the world of sports:

*I love this time of year in sports. There is nothing like March Madness, the best three weeks in sports.

*James Harden and Russell Westbrook continue to shine in the NBA, racking up incredible numbers.

*Another busy week for NFL fans. More signings, plenty of rumors. Will Marshawn Lynch return to the game?

*For those who are concerned about the late start times of some NCAA tournament games, both teams have to deal with it.

*Novak Djokovic continues to struggle a bit. He lost in Indian Wells to Nick Kyrgios of Australia.

*NC State made a solid hire by bringing in Kevin Keatts as their new coach. Keatts left NC-Wilmington for this opportunity.
