“There’s a reason we’re hitting in the middle of the order,” McLaughlin said, after Kansas sealed a Sunflower Showdown series victory. “Times come around. We’ve hit some balls hard that have held up in the wind or got caught this weekend.”

Conley wins long jump title to pace KU track on Day Two of Big 12 meet | KUsports.com
Conley set the tone with a mark of 22 feet, 2.25 inches on her first attempt, and it proved to be the winning jump. While the jump moved her to No. 3 overall in the NCAA rankings, it did not count as a personal or school record because it was wind-aided.

“Yeah, I think it is nice,” said KU coach Bill Self of his players’ ability to blend in with the rest of the student body on the biggest single day of the academic calendar. “It’s a little strange being on Mother’s Day this year, obviously, but it’s great. Winning and losing and all that stuff’s important, but in the big scheme of things, you know, you’re coming here for dual reasons. You don’t come here just to play ball, and our guys have had such a good track record of taking care of their business in the classroom, as well. So I’m real proud of those guys.”

Steph Curry: 'I was always chasing KD's numbers' in college - CBSSports.com
In college, few players were as entertaining to watch as Kevin Durant at Texas and Stephen Curry at Davidson. Obviously their paths differed greatly with Durant being a one-and-done while Curry spent three years in college. However, the entertainment value behind both of them was off the charts with Durant's scoring capturing the nation and Curry being practically unguardable by his junior year.

Cavs await Celtics or Wizards, getting anxious with long break between games - CBSSports.com
The Cavaliers last played May 7 when they completed a sweep of the Raptors. Since then they've been basketball free with the Celtics and Wizards series going a full seven games.

Trump Expected to Pick Former Business Professor to Serve as the USDA's 'Chief Scientist'
Naturally, President Trump is expected to appoint a man with literally no science education, much less a career in the discipline, to head the USDA’s research section, a position officially known as the department’s “undersecretary.” Instead, Trump’s projected pick, Sam Clovis, is a former tenured business and public policy professor at Morning Side college who has hardly even published any work in his field, and has never taken a graduate-level science class, according to a ProPublica article that came out Friday evening. Obviously Clovis is also very skeptical about global warming—after all, he studies business, not science.
