Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Tuesday:
The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today
Tuesday's top plays are Gabby Williams' steal, Brandon Saad's no-look assist, John Wall's between-the-legs pass, and the shaming of the Syracuse bench.
The UConn women's fast break. The Connecticut women's basketball team won its 100th game in a row, but it was a little closer than usual. Of the first 99 wins in the streak, only two were won by fewer than 10 points. UConn found itself down to No. 6 South Carolina late in the first half but ended the half with a 7-0 run and took a six-point lead into the break. UConn built a lead in the second half, but just as soon South Carolina started to chip away, Gabby Williams had a nice steal and started a fast break with freshman Crystal Dangerfield. UConn won, 66-55.
The Brandon Saad no-look assist. The Rangers beat the Blue Jackets, 3-2, but the goal of the night came off the Blue Jackets' own fast break. After Columbus got the puck down the full length of the ice in no time flat, Brandon Dubinsky scored off of the no-look pass from Saad.
The John Wall pass. The Wizards blew out the Thunder, building a 28-point lead by the end of the third quarter and eventually winning 120-98. Wall was feeling it on the Wizards' own fast break as he went between the legs to Otto Porter.
The Syracuse bench shaming. No. 8 Louisville needed overtime to beat Syracuse, 76-72. Midway through the second half, Syracuse had just taken its first lead of the night, and the Carrier Dome was rocking. But then Louisville completed a nice alley-oop. It not only quieted the crowd, but it also made the Syracuse bench sit down in shame.
