Blue Devils bewitch Blazers

By Robert Feasley | Sept. 16, 2006, midnight | In Blair »

Blown out during the first game of the season 33-0 against the Sherwood Warriors, little was expected of the Blue Devils in their game against Blair.

As fate would have it, the United States was drawn into group E, one of the more competitive groupings in the tournament.

By Abe Schwadron, Josh Zipin | June 6, 2006, midnight | In Professional »

The NBA is officially in uncharted territory. Neither the Dallas Mavericks nor the Miami Heat have ever made it to the NBA Finals in their franchise histories. With Shaq now as a backseat driver to the Heat's Championship bus, Miami looks to its young phenom, Dwyane Wade (a.k.a. "Flash") to propel the team to their first title. On the other side of the court lies Dirk Nowitzki, a reformed player who now attacks the basket instead of hoisting European-style jump shots. With rookie teams in the finals, but NBA veterans facing off on the biggeset stage of them all, SCO breaks down what should be a hard-fought series.
