VIDEO: Drexel's Frantz Massenat Hits the Shot of the College Basketball Season, Wins Game

Sincere congratulations are in order for the Villanova Wildcats and La Salle Explorers, who, on back-to-back nights, took down the No. 5 and No. 9 teams in the nation in Louisville and Butler.
For Villanova, it was a key conference win in a season that's turning out far better than expected — even if the 'Cats' assist-to-turnover ratio should ultimately prove unsustainable.
And for La Salle, which has made a habit in recent years of playing well out of conference and falling back to Earth in A-10 play, it's the first time the Explorers have beaten a Top-10 team since 1980.
Both wins included a court-storming, but neither included a buzzer-beating 50-footer. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we're here.
Behold what's very possibly the shot of the college basketball season. 
Drexel looked like it was headed for overtime on Wednesday night when Hofstra's Taran Buie -- who finished with a game-high 29 points -- buried a three to knot the game at 52 with 5.9 seconds to play.
But then Bruiser Flint got out the whiteboard and drew up the classic inbound-to-Frantz-and-let-him-hit-a-step-through-half-court-heave play. It's not quite the picket fence, but Hofstra still got caught watching the paint dry.
After you're done blinking, fix your eyes on Bruiser in the bottom left of the second angle.

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
