The TEN: 4/8/2019

(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

1. Virginia vs. Texas Tech, Monday night, 6:00 p.m. CBS – NCAA championship.

2. Baylor beat Notre Dame 82-81 to win the NCAA Women’s Championship.

3. The Dodgers beat Colorado 12-6 to complete a three game sweep of the Rockies at Coors Field.

4. Tennessee head coach Rick Barnes has emerged as the frontrunner to become the head coach at UCLA.

5. The Houston Rockets broke their own NBA record for three pointers with 27 in a 149-113 win over the Phoenix Suns Sunday night.

6. Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is hitless this season going 0 for 23 and is 0 for 44 since a double last September 14 against the Chicago White Sox. Davis is now just two shy of the record for consecutive hitless at-bats by a position player set by Eugenio Velez of the Dodgers who went 0-46 to close out theĀ  2011 season.

7. The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a five-year, $105 million deal with defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.

8. Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig was one of five players ejected after a bench clearing incident in Sunday’s 7-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

9. On this date in 1974 Henry Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hit his 715th home run off of the Dodgers Al Downing to break Babe Ruth’s career record.

10. “I looked for the same pitch my whole career, a breaking ball. All of the time. I wasn’t worried about the fastball. They couldn’t throw it past me. None of them.” – Henry Aaron.

    Yes, little did we know that Jim Buss was NOT as bad as it could possibly get in terms of Laker team ownership and management. And, I think it’s worse now because Jeannie Buss was supposed to be the remaining basketball expert in the family.

    The Lakers and Bruins are officially toast. Jeannie Buss, with her team of Magic and Rob, have proven even MORE inept than the regime of moron Jimmie Buss. Not to be outdone, UCLA head man Dan Guerrero is stretching the limits of comedy by considering senior citizen Rick Barnes (who has done ZERO in the last decade) for the Bruins’ coaching vacancy. It is tragic and sickening.
