He’s baaaack. Kobe Bryant has announced that he will be making his official return this Sunday as the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Toronto Raptors. It’ll surely be interesting to see if the Mamba strikes with his usual venom or if he’ll show signs of rust. Don’t miss his return tomorrow night.

Moving onto last night’s action, it was a busy night in the NBA with 20 teams in action. Kevin Durant, James Harden, John Henson, Khris Middleton, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Carmelo Anthony (pictured) all had huge nights as they powered their respective teams to wins. Durant and Harden were especially impressive with 29 and 34 points, respectively.

On the college gridiron, the Bowling Green Falcons picked up an upset win over No. 14 Northern Illinois with a final of 47-27. Bowling Green QB Matt Johnson was on fire, throwing 21/27 for 393 yards and five touchdowns on the night.
