The RFA boys’ basketball team upped their energy, but they still couldn’t find a way to beat Notre Dame. Using a 24 point performance from Dante Griffin the Jugglers outlasted the Black Knights 81-73. The win swept the season series for Notre Dame and put them at 18-2 on the year. Meanwhile Gavin Mosher had 23 in the losing effort, as the Black Knights dropped to 17-3. Two of their three losses came against Notre Dame.

In addition, we honored the UConn Women’s basketball team who just won their 100th straight game. The streak started back in November 2014, and the Lady Huskies are now just 10 wins shy of the NCAA all time record for consecutive wins. That currently belongs to the Penn State women’s volleyball team which rattled off 109 straight victories from 2007-2010.

Finally, the NBA D-League is getting a makeover. Starting next season it’ll now be known as the NBA Gatorade League. Officials say the move will help it’s aspiring players, but we can’t help to think it sounds just like a money grab.
