WVU's Miles: Kentucky gonna be 36-1
CLEVELAND -- The 36-0?? Kentucky Wildcats??may be the best college basketball team in the country -- and just four games away from a historic 40-0 finish -- but No. 5-seeded Sweet 16 opponent?? West Virginia??has them beat in at??least??one category: Confidence. "I give them their props," West Virginia freshman guard Daxter Miles Jr.??told reporters Wednesday. "Salute them to getting to 36-0. But tomorrow they're gonna be 36-1." Miles said the Wildcats "don't play hard," and should fear the Mountaineers -- not the other way around. "They should be more intimidated," Miles said. "Because they're the ones who have the high standard, and we're coming for them." Miles also predicted UK wouldn't be able to pass the ball against the Mountaineers' vaunted press, which will enter Thursday's Midwest Regional semifinal forcing opponents into turnovers on 28.3 percent of possessions, the highest mark in the country. When asked whether...
John Calipari won't fail again in NBA
Jayson Williams is actively rooting for John Calipari to lose, and yes, this one is personal. As a New Jersey Nets power forward in a different life, Williams did not accept the coach's relentlessly abrasive approach. As a man who later faced charges connected to the accidental shooting death of his limo driver, Williams did not appreciate Calipari's choice to break from a largely supportive circle of past and present colleagues by publicly questioning his character. So all these years later, with a 26-month prison stay behind him, the former Nets All-Star rooted for?? Hampton in Kentucky's??first NCAA tournament game and for?? Cincinnati??in the second. Williams will root for?? West Virginia??on??Thursday??night, and for any other opponent that might stop Calipari from completing the first 40-0 season in college basketball history. "Cal kicked me when I was down," Williams said. So when he ran into?? Shabazz Napier, the former ...
New rule response to Pats' formation
PHOENIX -- A much-deconstructed formation led to a New England Patriots touchdown drive in the playoffs. Next season, it will lead to a 5-yard penalty. The NFL passed a rule Wednesday that makes it illegal for an offensive player wearing an eligible number -- between 1 and 49, or 80 to 89 -- to report as ineligible and line up outside the tackle box. Now, if a player is declared ineligible yet lines up outside the tackle box, the offense will be penalized for illegal substitution. The rule, proposed by the NFL's competition committee, resulted from a successful series of plays by the Patriots during a 35-31 playoff victory over Baltimore in January. In that game, Patriots running back Shane Vereen was ineligible yet lined up as a slot receiver on three separate plays. That left the Ravens' defense confused about whom to cover, and the Patriots used it as impetus for a touchdown drive. Vereen ran a route backward because he could not...
