They don’t call the Miami Heat’s superstar trio “The Big Three” for nothing. Last night, they reminded the Washington Wizards just how efficient they can be, with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh all having monster showings. With Miami’s 99-90 win, they’ve officially clinched a playoff spot as they begin to shift focus towards the postseason. For King James, his seemingly never ending search for the right shoe continued, as this time he broke out the yet-to-be-released Nike LeBron XI Low. Has LBJ finally found a model he can stick with? Check them out in action, plus Wade and Bosh’s kicks, in the gallery above.

In NCAA’s women’s hoops, two of the nation’s top teams collided for the inaugural AAC title as No. 1 Connecticut hosted the No. 3 Louisville Cardinals. Unfortunately for Louisville, the game wasn’t as close as they might have hoped, and the Huskies dominated 72-52 to extend their undefeated campaign to 34-0. Breanna Stewart led the way once again for Connecticut, but you’ll have to check out the gallery to see her kicks.
