The Eagles are reporting that Brian Dawkins could be in the lineup to face Dallas this Sunday night. We're just glad to know he'll play at all this year, but it's great to hear it could be against Dallas. The Birds can't come out flat in that game or it'll get ugly quick, and we all know Dawk has a way of getting the team fired up. Hell I thought he was going to suit up midway through the Minnesota game when he was ripping Matt McCoy a new one for his stupid play on special teams.
Hopefully they'll bump Quintin Mikell over to SS and Sean Considine to the pine. We're a little tired of seeing Considine get run over when he lowers his shoulder, and of course getting burnt in the back of the endzone on the last play of a shoulda-won.
Andrew Bogut, we hardly knew ye.
After coming over from Dallas as part of the Nerlens Noel trade, Bogut is already thinking about his next move.
With the Sixers expected to buy out Bogut's contract, the former No. 1 overall pick will look to sign with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Tim MacMahon.
The Sixers swapped Noel for Bogut, Justin Anderson and a top-18 protected first-round pick — which will likely turn into two second-round picks — last Thursday.
With LeBron James begging the front office for help, the Cavaliers are also expected to sign Bogut's former Dallas teammate Deron Williams in Monday, according to The Vertical's Shams Charania.
AMHERST, Mass. -- Zach Lewis scored a career-high 37 points, including six three-pointers, and Massachusetts pulled away from La Salle 84-71 on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak.
Lewis, whose 37-point effort was the best for any player in the Atlantic 10 this season, hit nine of his 16 field goal attempts overall and was a perfect 13-for-13 at the free throw line. Dejon Jarreau added 20 points and four three-ponters for UMass (14-15, 4-12).
Pookie Powell hit five 3-pointers and scored 24 points, and B.J. Johnson added 20 points to lead La Salle (14-13, 8-8).
Both teams shot similar percentages and had similar three-point totals, but the Minutemen finished with a plus-14 advantage at the free throw line.
La Salle remained within striking distance but a 13-4 stretch for UMass midway through the second half pushed its lead to 63-51. The Minutemen kept the Explorers at arm's length the rest of the way.
