The Pirates came out of the gates ice cold shooting the ball, going 1-6 from the field and 1-4 at...

All of a sudden, a dream had become a reality....

It’s also a sport that has ironically taken her out of her comfort zone, adjusting to what is in many ways a different sport altogether in the NCAA’s team-oriented style of tennis competition. In the professional ranks of tennis, a...

Analytical technology taking over the sports world

In a game largely defined by athleticism, instinct and on-the-fly decision making, it is difficult to conceive that numbers have taken over baseball. Before long, the analytical efforts of Oakland general manager Billy Beane brought the small-market Athletics to a level of competitiveness traditionally held by big-market teams like the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. The analytical details sought by Beane and his staff involved...
