The over/under of 122.5, lowest for any second-round game in this year's NCAA Tournament. OR bounced back the next two seasons to reach the Elite Eight and, in 2017, the Final Four. Those numbers are even more impressive when you consider the Ducks lost 7-foot-2 Bol Bol (21.0 ppg, 9.6 rpg) for the season in December. Read More

ACC Basketball: Biggest questions and storylines for 2019 NCAA Tournament

That trend should continue in 2019 NCAA Tournament . As-of Tuesday afternoon, of the four 1-seeds, it won't shock you to hear that Virginia , again, is the team that fans have losing most often in the first round. I think Virginia gets wins over Gardner-Webb and Ole Miss before they run into Wisconsin in the Sweet 16.

49ers trade for Chiefs edge rusher Dee Ford

Kansas City has hired Steve Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator and is changing its base defensive system from a 3-4 to a 4-3, which would have necessitated a position change for Ford and Justin Houston , who was released by Kansas City.

Eden Hazard rescues point for Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri abandons philosophy

We need to improve in this kind of situation. "Then, for the last 20 minutes, Jorginho is not suitable for a 4-2-3-1, so (taking him off) was a outcome of changing system, not the performance".
