Boys Basketball: Lockley, Cy-Fair top Oak Ridge

After trailing by as many as 10 points in the first half, Cy-Fair outscored Oak Ridge by 14 in the final two quarters on its way to a 70-64 non-district victory over the homestanding War Eagles on Tuesday evening.

The Bobcats (9-4) — who trailed 33-25 at halftime and managed to score just seven points in the opening period— went on a 14-3 run spanning the third and fourth quarters to grab the lead.

NFHS Network and Under Armour Unite to Grow High School Sports Coverage

NFHSUnite (2)To date, the high school sports landscape and its coverage has largely been left on the periphery.

There’s been a gradual introduction and inclusion of this programming into the major networks, in their terms, though. ESPN and Fox Sports 1, for instance, televised a combined 33 high school football games between them last year. While the rights to such games might be more available than the professional ranks, the number of them broadcasted have remained low, in part, due to the lack of national following for a given team. This reality has led to the networks simply focusing their coverage on the top recruits and around how they can tie it back to its own high school all-star games as well as collegiate angle. click here for complete story

Rodeo: Champion continues to ride like one at NFR

web1_NFR-DEC13_121214DB_001It has been said that champions are made, not born. But Richmond Champion might beg to differ. Champion lived up to his name in March, when he literally became a rich champion by winning $1.1 million at RFD-TV’s The American Rodeo at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

“It was insane,” he said. The richest one-day rodeo ever featured the top 10 contestants in each event after the PBR World Finals and National Finals Rodeo, along with five qualifiers — of which Champion was one — in each event. Of the $2 million total purse, each event winner made $100,000, with an additional $1 million on the line for any qualifier who could win an event.

If more than one qualifier won, they would split the $1 million, but since Champion was the only qualifier to win, he took it all home. Shortly thereafter, The Woodlands, Texas, resident deposited the $1.1 million check in his local bank. click here for complete story
