December 28, 2010

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Jeff Brooks had a career-high 23 points and Talor Battle added 19 to help Penn State hold off Indiana 69-60 on Monday night.

Manning’s keeper seals win over Raiders 31-26

December 27, 2010

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Peyton Manning has won so many games for Indianapolis with his powerful right arm that it was only fitting that he was the one who sealed the victory with his legs in the Colts' best rushing game in three years.
    Manning threw three touchdown passes to put Indianapolis in the lead and then iced the game with a 27-yard naked bootleg that gave the Colts a 31-26 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday in a game that turned out to have little playoff meaning.

December 23, 2010

    Good things happen when a basketball team puts the ball in the basket and the Bellmont Squaws proved that Wednesday night at the Teepee with its best shooting performance of the season hitting 16-34 for 47 percent and adding nearly 70 percent from the foul line on 13-19 to post a 48-37 win over the visiting Woodlan Warriors in non-conference action.
    "This team is pretty good, I just don't know how much the girls believe it," noted Bellmont coach Tory Fuelling following the game.

Hop's Heresy: UCLA’s mark remains intact

December 23, 2010

    It's like tossing an ice cube into a pan of hot oil ... but it's got to be said. Geno Auriemma and the UConn women did not break the UCLA-John Wooden 88-game consecutive win record!
    Sure, they have 89 wins in a row, but the last time I checked, it was a different sport. UConn plays women's basketball. UCLA played men's basketball. It's not the same. It's not even close!

Squaws weather Jets’ run, then roll to 57-30 victory

December 21, 2010

    MONROE-After his team had coughed up the ball on four straight possessions in the third period which led to 10 straight points for the Adams Central Jets, Bellmont coach Tory Fuelling's message to his Squaws was simple when he called a timeout after AC had cut a 13 point BHS lead to just three.
