Bill Littlefield looks back on three of the most memorable sports stories of 2010.
The Connecticut Huskies have finished consecutive seasons as undefeated women’s NCAA basketball national champions and are approaching the longest-ever win streak in college basketball. Although UConn has only won two games this year, they may have passed their toughest test by beating #2 Baylor on Tuesday. Bill speaks with Michelle Smith from AOL Fanhouse about UConn’s dominance and more on women’s hoops.
This week on Only A Game, author Kevin Cook on Titanic Thompson, the man who may be the best hustler to ever live. Plus, we have a report on a car race featuring vehicles patched with tape, and we ask Michelle Smith if anyone can stop the UConn women’s basketball team as the Huskies approach college basketball’s win streak record.
I hear there’s a big golf tournament this week in Augusta, Georgia, and that there’s some sort of wild animal on hand. This week on Only A Game, a Masters update. Also, former NBA Kings remember royal life in Kansas City, and story telling through baseball cards.
Baseball will soon begin anew, but at least one active major league pitcher is very, very old. This week on Only A Game, a profile of 47-year-old Jamie Moyer, Philadelphia’s Methuselah of the mound. Also, pole dancers compete with vigor…and with all their clothes on!
Rounds one and two of the men’s basketball tourney held more surprises than anyone had bracketed for. This week on Only A Game, an NCAA hoops update of the men’s regionals, the latest from the women’s dance, and a slam dunk contest to benefit Sudan.
This week on Only A Game, can Husker hoopsters of the female variety help Nebraskans forget about their relatively unsuccessful football team? Also, some good spring training talk with Tim Kurkjian, and Vermonters say goodbye to winter with wickets and mallets.
Sixty-four teams are good, so 128 must be better! This week on Only A Game, should the March Madness field be increased to include just about everybody? Also, the round-the-world saga of Canadian hero and Paralympian Rick Hansen.
College basketball bubble teams find out their fate on Sunday and Monday when the brackets are announced for the NCAA tournament. But, Only A Game’s Bill Littlefield’s favorite basketball moment has already come and gone.
We’re ringing in 2010 with a fully loaded show! Bill and Gregg Doyel of CBSSports.com will discuss the college football bowls. Plus, the touching story of basketball prodigy Elena Delle Donne choosing Delaware over the mighty UConn; an NFL playoff preview with Dan Wetzel of Yahoo! Sports; and the phenomenon of outdoor hockey!
