Mike Rosario scored 54 points, hitting 18 of 29 shots, to lead Puerto Rico to a 90-89 victory over France at the U-19 championships in New Zealand.

C.V.S. and Pat Summit will square off once again this winter at the Maggie Dixon classic.
Fanhouse: Why the Rutgers-UCLA Series Is Good News for College Football: agree with the gist of it, slightly ticked off at the popular perception of Rutgers expressed there and elsewhere. The past few years have been fruitful and featured steady progress as far as the long term future of the program is concerned. The 2006 season built on five years of effort, and sustaining that level on a yearly basis requires doing things the right way. No quick fixes, no smoke and mirrors.
SK.com has new pictures up as of yesterday.
