Mike Lewis II scored 10 of his 15 points over the final 20 minutes, including five straight during a late game-turning surge to lift Duquesne to a 64-55 upset over Pitt on Friday night.

Sidney Crosby scored a near-impossible goal from behind the net and added a pair of assists to give the Penguins a 6-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night at PPG Paints Arena.

A year ago, there was doubt. Sidney Crosby no longer looked like the best player in the NHL.

What a difference a year makes.

Forget that it was the highest scoring football game in FBS history.

Forget that 137 total points were scored with 1312 yards of total offense.

Mike Young scored 20 points, Jamel Artis had 17 and Cameron Johnson 16 as Pitt limped to a 76-63 win over Morehead State on Friday night at the Petersen Events Center.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

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.
