It all proved too much for Virginia Tech, which fell to the Badgers, 84-74. "I don't think I shot all that well, to be honest, looking at my numbers", Koenig said. While a first-round exit is disappointing for Virginia Tech fans, the 2016-17 campaign was a success for the program. The oddity of the second half was that Tech, the smaller squad, was scoring consistently inside, mostly by Zach LeDay .

Mohammed Anas messed up in a live interview. " Mohammed Anas " while another gave him a "vote of confidence to lead South African men". Whether an innocent slip of the tongue or an actual admittance of an affair, still probably not a fun thing to explain to your wife (or your girlfriend ).

Ranchi: Team India are hoping Virat Kohli is fit to bat after sustaining a shoulder injury on Day 1 of the Test 3. Later, Pujara was supported by Ajinkya Rahane and Karun Nair as India crossed 300-run mark.

A mini-run toward the end of the first half notwithstanding, Kent State can't really hang with UCLA. As for the Ball family, we're told it's typical for cops to instruct victims to go through their house and check for missing items.
