The World Cup saw one of the biggest upsets ever. Saudi Arabia, ranked 51st in the world rankings, stunned one of the tourney’s favorites, Argentina, 2-1.
There were other shockers as Costa Rica, coming off a 7-0 loss, stunned Japan. Belgium was beaten by Morocco.
College basketball saw a wild week too. Purdue impressed with easy wins over Gonzaga and Duke. North Carolina lost twice, including a four-overtime battle vs. Alabama. Tennessee knocked off Kansas in the Bahamas. Arizona beat Creighton to win the Maui Invitational. I called Oklahoma’s win over Mississippi at Disney.
