Davidson's Sports Wrap-Up: Nets Win, Le Batard Gives Up Vote

a | A

Here's what you missed last night in sports:

No Sleep for Brooklyn

The surging Brooklyn Nets snapped the Golden State Warriors' 10-game winning streak, causing them to just miss a piece of history. The marquee matchup between Deron Williams and Stephen Curry also didn't happen, a sign that perhaps it's time to fix the National Basketball Association's insane travel schedule.

Behind the Curtain

Deadspin revealed that the Baseball Writers' Association of America member who turned over his Hall of Fame vote to the blog in protest of the flawed voting system is none other than Miami Herald columnist and ESPN personality Dan Le Batard. Read his reasons for taking a stand.

College Priorities

Bobby Petrino will apparently return to coach football at the University of Louisville, showing that the only thing the school cares about is winning.

Court Watch

The woman who says Jameis Winston raped her will sue the Heisman Trophy winner, her lawyer announced two days after the Florida State University quarterback led his team to a national title.

The Fairer Sex

Read this incredible, first-person account of Alaska's Wilderness Woman competition, in which women compete in categories such as wood chopping, shooting and snow-machine driving to somewhat ironically prove they're worthy wives.
