Schefter Attention Philadelphia and Seattle:
Of the 92 teams to have a 4-7 record from 1990 to 2010, only 3 made the
playoffs (3.3 pct).

And now—with words which figure to only further turn your stomach when
you attempt to name more than five players on the Seahawks' roster (and,
no, you can't use Pete Carroll)—The Seattle Times:

The records are identical.

The explanations are not.

At 4-7, the Seahawks are rebuilding while the Philadelphia Eagles are reeling and those two story lines provide the most compelling tension for Thursday's prime-time intersection.

For Seattle, there is still a question of what these Seahawks could become. Philadelphia is left to rue what the Eagles could have been.

Eagles! Seahawks! The Battle of Two Teams Heading in Opposite Directions! It's the NFL on Thursday Night!

Joel Embiid really looking forward to facing Nerlens Noel

Joel Embiid really looking forward to facing Nerlens Noel

In case you haven’t heard, the Sixers traded big man Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks before Thursday's deadline (see story).

While Noel's former teammates were saddened by the trade, including Joel Embiid, the rookie big man is already looking forward to squaring off against his friend.

The Sixers face Noel and the Mavericks on March 17 at the Wells Fargo Center. 

Drexel falls to James Madison in potential CAA Tournament preview

Drexel falls to James Madison in potential CAA Tournament preview


Jackson Kent and Tom Vodanovich combined to score 31 points and James Madison held off Drexel late to secure a 70-64 victory Thursday night.

The game could be a preview of a first-round match-up in the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. With one game left in the regular season, James Madison (9-21, 7-10) is the No. 7 seed and Drexel (9-21, 3-14) has locked up the No. 10 seed. Those seeds meet in the first round, with the winner facing the No. 2 seed in the second round.

Sammy Mojica hit a 3-pointer with :32 left to get the Dragons within four, 66-62, but Shakir Brown and Joey McLean each hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory.

Kent hit 6 of 11 from the floor and tallied 16 points with eight rebounds to lead the Dukes. Vodanovich added 15 points.

Kurk Lee and Mojica both scored 18 points off the Dragons' bench.
