Whether you were feeling disappointed with Sunday night’s Super Bowl blowout or still nursing a mean hangover from the party, yesterday’s action on the pro and collegiate hardwood should have been enough to put you in better spirits.
From Stillwater, Oklahoma, No. 16 Iowa State and No. 19 Oklahoma State battled it out in a Big 12 war. Both teams showed up to play, pushing well past regulation and into a triple-overtime scenario. At the end of it all, the No. 16 Cyclones inched by with a 98-97 win which was fueled by 26 points, 9 boards, and 9 assists from guard DeAndre Kane (pictured.)
Elsewhere, the newly-ranked No. 1 Syracuse Orange continued their undefeated streak with a 61-55 ousting of Notre Dame. Trevor Cooney came up big for the Orange with 33 points and 4 steals. No. 6 Villanova also hosted the Xavier Musketeers, so be sure to hit the slides for a recap.
In the NBA, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade didn’t just turn heads with their high-caliber performances, but also with fresh colorways of their signature styles. Catch up on these and more after the jump.
