Defenseman BEN LOVEJOY is coming off a solid 2015-16 season.

Nikita Kucherov was dominant with two goals and one assist but it was Jason Garrison's overtime shot off Tyler Johnson's back that led the Lightning to a 4-3 win in overtime, pushing the Penguins to the brink of elimination.

Former professional wrestler Shawn Michaels’ rousing comebacks helped him obtain legendary status within his industry.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
