Randle, Knicks beat Wizards 107-100 for second straight win

Mike Miller took over a team with just four wins earlier this month and has already led the New York Knicks to five victories. The interim coach is deflecting all the credit, pointing to Julius Randle's play of late. Randle scored 30 points and equaled a season high with 16 rebounds, Bobby Portis added 17 points and the Knicks beat the Washington Wizards 107-100 on Saturday night.

Attacker stabs five at rabbi's home in New York

An attacker stabbed five people late on Saturday at a Hasidic rabbi's home in New York state and fled before apparently being arrested, a Jewish organization said, a rampage that came after days of increased tension over anti-Semitic assaults. The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) said on Twitter an attacker wearing a scarf stabbed the victims at a house in Monsey, Rockland County, about 30 miles north of New York City. "The suspect fled the scene, but he is in custody at this tim...

Sixty years on, Africa still seeks right model for growth

As 1960 dawned, sub-Saharan Africa braced for historic change: that year, 17 of its countries were destined to gain independence from European colonial powers.

The dirty, hot and dangerous work of battling bushfires might be physically exhausting for Raymond Lowe, but he is not stepping aside any time soon.

Thrilling Heat-Sixers game sees improbable end to regulation

As far as finishes go for an NBA game, the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers had a doozy of an ending to regulation on Saturday. With the Heat trailing by two in the final seconds, the Sixers' Tobias Harris missed a dunk that would have probably iced the game. But the rebound was tapped out into the hands of Joel Embiid, meaning the Heat would have to foul.

Fiesta Bowl: Controversial replay decision overturns Ohio State's fumble return for a go-ahead TD

Ohio State had a go-ahead touchdown taken off the board in the third quarter of its 29-23 Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson after officials eventually ruled Clemson WR Justyn Ross never had possession of a pass from QB Trevor Lawrence. With the Tigers leading 21-16, Ross appeared to catch a pass near the sideline with Ohio State's Jeff Okudah defending him. Okudah did a fantastic job of getting the ball out of Ross' hands as he tried to pull the ball to his chest and it fell to the ground, w...

Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins leaves CFP semifinal game with injury

Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins left his team's College Football Playoff semifinal matchup against Clemson with what appeared to be a left ankle injury. Dobbins limped off after a tackle late in the first half and came back out for the second half with his left foot heavily taped. Dobbins, who rushed for 142 yards — including a 68-yard touchdown — in the first half, went out for a pass early in the third quarter but came up limping.

Jalen Hurts' poor performance against LSU should give Bears pause in NFL draft

The Bears will conclude their disappointing 2019 regular season Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, and depending on how quarterback Mitch Trubisky performs, an offseason highlighted by another quarterback quest will be underway. This isn't to say Trubisky will be replaced before a training camp and preseason competition, and it would be unreasonable to assume the Bears won't give Trubisky every chance over the spring and summer to prove he deserves to remain the starter in 2020.
