The Davidson Wildcats were almost down and out -- that was until Stephen Curry unleashed his game heroics.

The Wildcats trailed by 17 points with 9:27 remaining, but shot a sizzling 51.9 percent in the second half as Stephen Curry, son of former NBA 3-point gunner Dell Curry, and the Wildcats got their groove en route to the win.

After being down so much in the 4th quarter, the Toyota Center crowd stood and roared one last time, not in celebration of the night, but in appreciation of so many nights strung together for so long.

Lewis Hamilton Wins Aussie Grand Prix

News taken from http://www.planet-f1.com

Lewis Hamilton has taken victory - and a hefty points lead over Kimi Raikkonen - with a flawless performance in the Australian GP.

One of the few drivers in the field not to endure some sort of drama on a spectacular return for F1, Hamilton delivered a perfect display of frontrunning to secure the win. Yet while Hamilton prospered, Ferrari suffered a nightmare afternoon with Ice Man Kimi Raikkonen melting in the Melbourne sunshine. The Finn twice slid off the track and then failed to finish the race due to engine failure. The World Champions showed they have the pace to challenge - and possibly beat - McLaren but leave Australia with plenty of problems to dwell on.

The story of the race - apart from the glorious havoc brought on by a lack of traction control - was the roll of the dice provided by three Safety Car periods, which sidelined Robert Kubica, robbed Heikki Kovalainen of second place, but allowed Nico Rosberg to claim his forst podium and Fernando Alonso to gain an unlikely fourth place. Kovalainen eventually finished the race in fifth place followed home by Rubens Barrichello who faces disqualification after exiting the pitlane when the exit light was on red.

Only seven cars were running at the chequered flag.

Manny Pacquiao Wins on Split Decision

Manny Pacquiao, the Filipino ring icon, beat Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico 112-115, 115-112, 114-113 by split decision earlier in the day (Philippine time). It surprised me when I heard Michael Buffer announced "and new WBC..." because I expected Marquez to win. With everyone in our family get together viewing of the Pacquiao fight giving the win to Marquez, I was surprised...but happy. Pacquiao did get revenged for the flawed judging during their match that ended in a draw four months ago. Despite hard evidence that judge who saw it as a draw made a scoring mistake, they refused to change the outcome before. Now, Manny Pacquiao gets his revenge.

This wasn't the greatest boxing fight Pacquiao has fought in, but we'd still be happy to get the win. Manny wasn't attacking that much because Juan Manuel Marquez is a master at counter-punching. I hope there will be a third fight because this isn't a convincing win. But I'm thinking that if there will be a third fight, it has to be at the 135lbs class as Pacquiao is keen on going up a weight class.

Davon Jefferson and Taj Gibson each had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Trojans, who were superb on the defensive end allowing ASU's final field goal with more than 9 minutes remaining in the game.

The win was the sixth in seven games for the fourth-seeded Trojans (21-10), who had already assured themselves of an NCAA tournament berth.
