Tuesday Triple Play


Congratulations to the University of Connecticut's women's basketball team who won their 89th consecutive game tonight against 20th ranked Florida State. If you were looking for drama though, this wasn't the game for you. UCONN jumped out to a 54-27 halftime lead and cruised to a 93-62 victory behind 41 points from Maya Moore. Next up for the Lady Huskies? 3-8 Pacific. I know they still have to play the game, but I think it's safe to say that number 90's probably in the bag. However, win number 91 could be a little tougher as they take on the last team that actually beat them, the Stanford Cardinal.


Devin Hester narrowly missed setting the all time record for combined return touchdowns when he took the second half opening kickoff 79 yards to the Minnesota 6-yard line. Hester had entered the game tied with Brian Mitchell with 13 return TDs, but Hester wasn't quite done. On his next opportunity, not even three minutes later, Hester took a punt back 64 yards untouched for his record 14th return TD. The 28 year old Hester, who didn't have any return touchdowns in 2008 or 2009, now has 3 on the season.

If at first you don't succeed

Try, try again


The Magic lose AGAIN. They are now 16-12 and have lost 8 of 9 despite Dwight Howard's third straight 20+ rebound game. Howard finished with 26 points and 23 rebounds giving him 63 boards in his last 3 games. Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson failed to deliver for the second night in a row, this time combining to hit just 7 of 30 shots and score 21 points in 96 combined minutes. Turkoglu did have 8 assists, but had only one rebound and both he and Arenas finished with 5 fouls. The bright side? Earl Clark played and hit all 3 of his shots in 13 minutes. If Earl Clark ends up being the bright spot in this deal, the Magic are in REAL trouble.
