  • Bracket busters

    Filling out an NCAA tournament bracket has become something of a yearly tradition.
    Over 60 million Americans fill out a bracket each year, despite the odds of filling out the perfect bracket stacked high against them (the odds are one in 9.4 quintillion to be exact). Sports fans and non-sports fans alike will fill out a bracket and join bracket contests with family, friends or co-workers, with prizes, cash and bragging rights on the line. Research will be done, numbers will be crunched and fans will seek to gain an edge to get a perfect- or darn close to- bracket.

    By Larry Vaught

    His season has not gone exactly the way he hoped so far, but junior pitcher Justin Lewis does like the way one thing is going — the perception of Kentucky baseball.
    “I can tell a big difference. It used to be if somebody asked me I played ball at UK, I knew they meant basketball,” said Lewis, a Georgia native. “Now they let me know that they know I play baseball. That’s really good.

    March 24

  • Improbable

    Friday night in Charlotte, North Carolina. No one thought history would happen inside the Spectrum Center. No one thought by the end of the night, the most improbable would happen.
