  • Andre Drummond the best offensive rebounder ever? The numbers say yes

    Well, that didn't take long. Andre Drummond is the fastest player to 1,000 offensive rebounds in NBA history. Andre Drummond entered the NBA history books Tuesday night when he secured his 1,000th offensive rebound of his young career. Nobody has done it at a younger age or in fewer games than young Drummond, who was able to achieve the feat at age 21 and in just 215 contests. Shaquille O'Neal and Elton Brand crossed the 1,000-board threshold at 22 in 245 and 231 games, respectively. To call this rare company would be an understatement as only six players since 1973-74, when offensive and…

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:10 am
    Protesters are expected this week to continue demonstrations against police brutality in wake of a video showing Inkster police officers beating 57-year-old Floyd Dent of Detroit. Dent was pulled over late one night in January after an officer observed him not coming to a full stop at a stop sign. Within moments, the officers are seen on a patrol car video pulling Dent out of his Cadillac, with one repeatedly throwing punches into the Ford auto workers’ temple.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:00 am
    Once again tapping into their ESPN Forecast panel, ESPN ranked the Top 30 point guards this year. Reggie Jackson came in at 25 while Brandon Jennings was not listed. The sports world is all about rankings. Who is ranked as the best team? Who is ranked as the best rebounder? Who is ranked as the best rookie? Well ESPN went to their Forecast panel again to rank the top 30 point guards in the NBA. Reggie Jackson came in at 25 (or bottom 6, depending on how you want to look at it) while Brandon Jennings wasn't even listed. Now, one might argue that Jennings is not listed because he is out for the…

    Atlanta let their starters play, but the Pistons still dropped the Eastern Conference leaders. John Lucas III hasn't played in nearly three weeks. But with Reggie Jackson under the weather and Spencer Dinwiddie out with a sprained ankle, the Pistons needed big minutes from Lucas. And he brought it. The Pistons went into the fourth quarter leading 76-72, and opened up with a nice run led by Reggie Jackson to put them up by 11. But the Hawks being the Hawks responded with a run of their own to cut things to five. Jackson went out after just a few minutes in the fourth, but Lucas was good with…

Game Vitals Where: Palace of Auburn Hills When: Tuesday, March 31, 2015 @ 7:30 PM Watch: Fox Sports Detroit Listen: 105.1 FM Pregame Analysis I am ever the optimist. I still believe the Pistons have the easiest schedule remaining of those fighting for the 8th seed of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Sadly, a loss on Sunday to the Miami Heat did not help their chances as they are now 4.5 games back with only nine games to play. However, if a miracle were to…

  • Blue Jays bring youthful squad north for Opening Day (Eh Game)

    1 Apr 2015 | 11:45 am
    The 2015 edition of the Toronto Blue Jays will have something no previous team has ever had – two players who weren’t even born the last time the Blue Jays made the playoffs way, way back in 1993. That’s not a dig at the team that holds the longest playoff drought in professional sports as much as it is a sign of just how young the team is. With Opening Day just five days away, the Blue Jays all-but-finalized their 25-man roster on Tuesday and it includes a pair of 20-year-old pitchers in the bullpen in Miguel Castro and Roberto Osuna. Both youngsters turned heads in spring training and…
  • Lowrie, Rasmus homer for Astros in 8-5 win over Braves (The Associated Press)

    31 Mar 2015 | 8:18 pm
    Wandy Rodriguez made his latest bid to earn the final spot in Atlanta's rotation, pitching five innings for the Braves on Tuesday night in their 8-5 loss to the Houston Astros. AL batting champion Jose Altuve had three hits for the Astros, and Colby Rasmus hit a three-run homer. Rodriguez is trying to land the No. 5 starter job - at least until Mike Minor returns from injury, perhaps in May. Rodriguez said he cringes a bit every time Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez walks past his locker. He's really bringing it, but I still haven't made a decision.'' Houston starter Asher Wojciechowski, a…

    31 Mar 2015 | 7:11 pm
    The average salary when opening-day rosters are finalized Sunday will break the $4 million benchmark for the first time, according to a study of all major league contracts by The Associated Press. Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw tops players at $31 million and Los Angeles projects to open the season with a payroll at about $270 million, easily a record. ''We're enjoying a tremendously bountiful season in baseball,'' said Toronto pitcher R.A. Dickey, the 2012 NL Cy Young Award winner with the New York Mets.

    David Price didn't want to end spring training this way. Price was rocked for seven runs over six innings in his final tuneup for opening day as the Detroit Tigers lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-3 Tuesday. ''I know I need to make better pitches, but body-wise I feel fine.'' Price is to start Monday's opener against Minnesota, ending Justin Verlander's streak of pitching seven straight Detroit openers. Before Detroit acquired him from Tampa Bay last year, Price pitched home games in a dome.

    Brittney Sykes knew it had happened again the second she collapsed to the floor. Lying in pain next to the stanchion on the side of the court opposite the Syracuse bench on Jan. 4, her teammates, coaches and the 2,158 fans in attendance all wondered. But Sykes was already certain. “You go eight months rehabbing, you learn who you are. You learn your body,” Sykes said. “Other than me hearing the actual pop that everybody talks about, you know your body. Once it happened, I went into more of a shock and fear.” Sykes came back for Syracuse on Dec. 28 after tearing her ACL and meniscus in…

    After a long, harsh winter of bundling up, warmer weather is finally in sight. Though chunky blanket scarves, beanies and tall boots were popular this past season, springtime means shedding heavy layers in favor of a cleaner, airier and uncluttered lifestyle. One trend that dominated the Spring/Summer 2015 runway was minimalism. With minimalism, dressing has gone back to basics, simplifying the notoriously complicated morning routine. This new trend emphasizes easy, modern elegance and personal taste. To help freshen up your spring wardrobe, The Daily Orange has created a tip sheet for…

    University Union’s decision to change to the ticket sales policy for Block Party 2015 properly addresses the needs of the students it is tasked to entertain. On Tuesday, UU announced that it would feature 50 Cent with G-Unit, Kygo and Rae Sremmurd as the headlining acts for its annual Block Party concert. In addition to this announcement, UU also revealed a change in its ticket sales plan. Rather than allowing students to purchase four student presale tickets, as has been customary in the past, students are limited to only purchasing two presale tickets.

    When the American College of Sports Medicine came out with their top fitness trends for 2015, it was no surprise what was in the number one spot: bodyweight training. While the name may sound complicated, it actually describes moves you’ve done ever since you were a kid in elementary school gym class. Things like push-ups, sit-ups, lunges and squats are all bodyweight moves because they work your muscles without any extra equipment like dumbbells or resistance bands. The rise in popularity is thanks to the fact that these exercises can be done anywhere and require no expensive…

    For Kelly Iris, losing weight could literally be life-saving. Only it isn’t necessarily her life that could be saved. Iris, who is a radio personality on West Michigan’s STAR 105.7, has a cousin with type 1 diabetes. In need of a second kidney transplant after an organ from her sister didn’t quite work out, doctors looked to her extended family. As the youngest maternal cousin, Iris is the best match. Four years ago, her weight would have immediately disqualified her from donating. After taking control of her health and her weight through the Fifth Third Riverbank Run’s 10,000 Steps…

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:21 am
    Every year, students in Michigan die from sudden cardiac arrest due to abnormal heart structure or abnormal rhythms. These types of abnormalities usually go undetected without a cardiac screening. The screenings are also not typically included in the yearly sports physicals that Michigan student-athletes are required to complete. The non-invasive test uses ultrasound waves to create detailed pictures of the heart, allowing cardiologists to detect heart defects like murmurs and thickening of the heart walls that can cause deadly hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The best and most important time to…

    Did you sleep well last night? If your answer is, “not really”, then you may want to examine your bedtime routine for behaviors that could be the reason why. While the benefits of sleep may seem obvious, it really pays to understand the full value that sleep adds to overall health. The Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School reports that, “sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions.” They add that, sleep deprivation and loss often leads to impaired learning and job performance, which in turn can cause…

From the outside, the building was abandoned and the inside was even worse: abused, rotting and stripped of its most valuable assets. Today, however, the center is just a few months from opening and is absolutely breathtaking:The center has become the crown jewel of Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources and is a facility unlike any other in the nation. The Outdoor Adventure Center, or OAC, has, literally, left no stone unturned. Every part of…
