    Kalani Brown turned the ball over once and missed a couple easy shots in the first few minutes Sunday. That earned Baylor’s senior All-America center a seat on coach Kim Mulkey’s bench. But when Brown returned to the game less than a minute later, she did so with a different mentality, started making shots and the Lady Bears fed off that. Brown scored 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting to lead five players in double figures, and No. 2 Baylor beat West...

    It began in 2002, back when the Rams were in St. Louis and the Patriots were a plucky underdog standing in the way of a potential dynasty. So much has changed. This hasn’t: Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. The duo, every bit as formidable now as when they won that first title, face the Rams, now back in Los Angeles, in a Super Bowl rematch of sorts that pits the NFL’s past against its future. At 32, Sean McVay is the youngest Super Bowl coach. At 66, Bill Belichick has an...More >>

    A big comeback. A blown call. And, finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl. After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein’s 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday — an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation.
