'Let it rip:' Arizona flying high to Sweet 16, but NCAA dread lurks in background
Arizona coach Tommy Lloyd is in the Sweet 16 after inheriting an emotional, international team full of talent. But he also might inherit an NCAA mess.This was in the second half of their victory Friday in the first round of the NCAA men’s tournament. Despite the stakes of the moment, Terry looked loose. So did his teammate, Pelle Larsson, who turned around and pumped his arms in triumph after he sunk a 3-point shot later in the same game.
The PGA's first major gets underway on Thursday at Augusta National Golf Club as 91 players, including six amateurs, vie to conquer the 7,510 yard course and take home the Green Jacket at the Masters.
Hideki Matsuyama won last year's tournament with a one-shot victory over Will Zalatoris and will attempt to become the first golfer to score back-to-back victories since Tiger Woods pulled off the feat in 2001 and 2002.
The playing status of Woods is another top storyline as he continues to work his way back to playing after severe leg injuries suffered in an automobile accident in February 2021. But during a press conference on Tuesday, Woods said he felt like he was going to play — 25 years after his first Masters victory in 1997. Woods has a tee time on Thursday at 10:34 a.m. ET.
