Georgia Into Top Four, Sabres Go Top, Williamson’s Big Night, Nuggets Defeat Lakers at ‘Home’

Jonathan Grant | November 28th, 2018

It has been a while since we saw any substantial movement in the College Football Playoff rankings, but we finally got that on Tuesday night thanks to a loss by #4 Michigan last weekend. With the Wolverines loss, the Georgia Bulldogs moved up a spot. Unfortunately for them, they have a meeting with #1 Alabama this weekend in a game that should see them take care of themselves one way or the other. So, the next point of contention was over which team should be #5: Oklahoma or Ohio State? For this week, at least, the Sooners remain ahead, but the Buckeyes have closed the gap. Thirdly, everyone wondered where UCF stood in all of this, and we got a resounding answer. They are ranked #8, behind two-loss Michigan. Maybe next year, Knights.

A year after being the worst team in the NHL, the Buffalo Sabres are looking like they could well be the best team this season. No team in NHL history has led the league in points by themselves after 25 games after finishing last before after they recorded a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. They now have 36 points on the season and have a franchise high currently at ten wins in a row. One more will break the record, and they have the chance to do that in Tampa Bay on Thursday.

After a sensational home showing that included an aw-inspiring windmill dunk on the way to 25 points, Zion Williamson’s fans have only grown more and more excited about the possibilities he can bring to Duke University. His coach, the famed Mike Krzyzewski, has moved to quell the expectations, but it’s just not going to work. Williamson is a bonafide superstar already, and has become a driving force of not just the team but college basketball as a whole. Overall, Duke bounced back from its first loss of the season to Gonzaga by hammering Indiana at Cameron Indoor by a score of 90-69.

There was a large and boisterous contingent of Lakers fans in the building in Denver on Tuesday night as the Nuggets welcomed LeBron and co. to town, but that hardly did anything to stop the Nuggets from rolling to their biggest-ever win over the Lakers. They got 20 points from each one of Paul Millsap, Malik Beasley, and Jamal Murray to help carry them to a 117-85 win. The 14-7 Nuggets’ coach Michael Malone not only told the Lakers fans to “take that L” but also talked about just how well they defended. 85 points in an NBA game these days is always going to be a win, that much is for certain!
