Davidson's Sports Wrap-Up: Gambling Allegations and Film Plans
Here's what you missed last night in sports:
Hurts So Good
Michigan State University toppled Ohio State University, 72-68 in overtime, handing the Buckeyes' basketball team their first loss of the season. Unfortunately, the Spartans might be in too much pain to celebrate.
Say It Ain't So
Three men's basketball players at the University of Texas at El Paso were released from the program after the Federal Bureau of Investigation looked into gambling allegations. UTEP officials say there's no evidence of point shaving, and the players were not betting on UTEP games.
He Still Got Game?
Jesus Shuttleworth, aka Ray Allen, is considering returning to the big screen in a potential sequel to the Spike Lee joint "He Got Game." In May, the film celebrated its 15th anniversary and one of Lee's shrewdest decisions in casting Allen.
The remaining powerhouse teams named their Olympic men's hockey rosters, with Canada, Russia and Sweden forced to make tough choices and exclude some big names. Check out this roundup of the top contenders for gold in Sochi, Russia.
Ghosts of Crimes Past
Details from a search warrant point to Aaron Hernandez's role in a 2012 double homicide that's separate from last June's slaying of Odin Lloyd, for which he's currently charged. The New England Patriots might be playoff-bound, but Hernandez remains the team's biggest story of the season.
