    Max Abmas of Oral Roberts won the NCAA scoring title as a sophomore in 2020-21 and helped his team become just the second No. 15 seed in history to reach the Sweet 16. Abmas is among the national scoring leaders again — and one of the top college players with questions to answer before an NBA future beckons. The biggest one for him and other top scorers like Jake Stephens of Chattanooga, Drew Timme of Gonzaga and Antoine Davis of Detroit Mercy seems to have a familiar theme? Can they defend at the next level?

      DALLAS — After weeks — and more weeks — of waiting, the Big 12 finally has released its 2023 football schedule. That in itself represented news Tuesday, beyond the analysis of who plays who and who got an unfriendly schedule. The schedule was supposed to be out weeks ago. At the College Football Playoff championship game, new Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark said it wasn’t about Texas and ...

        Most franchises that haven't won a playoff game in six years and are one of 18 teams that haven't even been to the Super Bowl in a dozen years might be inclined to consider changing their fortunes. Especially when they are arguably one of the most successful organizations in NFL history. But it is not even a fleeting thought for the Steelers, who have had just three head coaches in 54 years ...

        This season’s Georgia Tech men’s basketball team is the worst-ever in Ken Pomeroy’s statistical rankings, which date to the 2001-02 season. The 2009 Yellow Jackets finished 2-14 in the ACC, but at least they lost a lot of close games. This season’s Jackets are 1-10 in the ACC, and the losing margin was fewer than 11 points only once. The Jackets never should be this bad. It wasn’t long ago ...

        The Big 12 has released its long-anticipated 14-team football schedule. It includes its four new members for 2023 along with Oklahoma and Texas before their eventual departures to the Southeastern Conference. Houston will be the first of the new teams to play a conference game, on September 16 when the Cougars host former Southwest Conference rival and national champion runner-up TCU. The other newcomers play their Big 12 openers the following week, when BYU is at Kansas, Central Florida goes to defending champion Kansas State, and Cincinnati hosts Oklahoma.

        Jason Jitoboh won't step foot onto a basketball court without his glasses. And he doesn't even need them to see. The darkened lenses merely provide extra protection for what eyesight Jitoboh has remaining. Florida's 6-foot-11 center took a finger to his left eye at Tennessee last January and spent the better part of a year trying to get right. He's had four surgeries already and might have a fifth following the season. He faces the second-ranked Volunteers for the first time since his injury when Florida hosts Tennessee on Wednesday.

        BALTIMORE — Tyler Huntley, who played in six games for the Ravens this season filling in for injured quarterback Lamar Jackson, has been named to the Pro Bowl roster as a replacement for injured Buffalo Bills starter Josh Allen. The AFC roster initially included three quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals and Allen. However, with Mahomes ...

        Jakorian Bennett doesn’t know what his life would be like without football. Maybe he would’ve stuck with track, but his answer didn’t seem definitive. He spent a minute trying to envision a scenario where he wasn’t the starting cornerback at Maryland, and nothing came to mind. Football has meant everything to Bennett, but life without it was almost a reality. He was an undersized defensive ...
