Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts chases ball during live interview: 'I ain't getting this one, boys'

In-game player interviews are usually boring and full of cliches. But finally — finally! — something interesting happened during one Tuesday as Mookie Betts was interviewed as he played right field during the Red Sox's game with the Cubs. And he displayed brutal honesty when the Cubs' Kris Bryant hit a liner in his general direction. (Sporting News)

New UConn men’s basketball coach Dan Hurley is exactly where he wants to be

Dan Hurley stepped to the podium at the Werth Family Champions Center for the first time as UConn’s head men’s basketball coach on Friday afternoon and had just one opening remark. “Wow.” There he was, standing in the type of practice facility his prior two programs could only dream of, introducing himself as the head coach of the program he used to dream of. (New Haven Register)

Sunday’s national championship between no. 1-seeded Notre Dame and no. 1-seeded Mississippi State ended with Notre Dame winning by 3, a result made possible by this incredible shot by Arike Ogunbowale.

When the tears dried, Loyola realized its place in college basketball lore

When the tears dried, Loyola's renegade Ramblers reveled in what they'd done. They joined the ranks of Butler and George Mason and VCU and Wichita State, schools with names now synonymous with Cinderella and March Madness. They popularized Sister Jean, the 98-year-old nun who became the face of the NCAA Tournament. (Louisville Courier-Journal)

Why Purdue's Special Teams Coordinator Left Football to Open a Chick-fil-A

45-year-old Tony Levine, who has coached at every level from the NFL to third grade flag football over the past two decades, is now the owner/operator of a Chick-fil-A franchise.

After 23 years in prison as an innocent man, former White Sox groundskeeper returns to his old job

Nevest Coleman looked around the White Sox ballpark in wonder as he walked down the third base line.

Virginia definitely has the worst major college sports upset ever...and the second-worst one, too

UVA has the two worst losses in college sports history, though we’ll probably argue which was worse. Chaminade wasn’t an NCAA team, much less a Division I team, but 1982 UVA’s trip to play the Silverswords in Honolulu was a pre-Christmas side quest, not a game the Cavs had reason to take that seriously, and star center Ralph Sampson had been sick. (SB Nation)

Ahead of Miami’s stint in the NCAA Tournament, Hurricanes coach Jim Larrañaga indicated there was a good chance fans had seen the last of Bruce Brown in a Miami uniform. It’s a chance that still exists. Though Brown — a sophomore who missed the Hurricanes’ last 12 games with a foot injury — declared Thursday he intended to enter the NBA Draft, he did not hire an agent. (South Florida Sun-Sentinel)
