In hindsight, there was probably less chance for a perfect bracket this year than any other, with University of Maryland, Baltimore County becoming the first No. 16 seed to ever beat a No. 1 seed and Loyola University Chicago becoming just the fourth ever No. 11 seed to make it to the Final Four.
With the basketball world no longer focused on March Madness, it’s time to center our attention back to the professionals. As the NBA regular season nears its end, its time to look back on many of the exciting storylines and who is in the running for the NBA’s highest awards.
While most believe that it is far too early to make any sort of predictions on the 162-game season, the first matchups can certainly give an important look into the makeup of most teams.

Six years of progress came to a devastating end when the U.S. Men’s National Team lost 2-1 against Trinidad and Tobago in the final qualifying match for the 2018 World Cup. The team only needed a draw, but their loss, coupled with Panama and Honduras winning their final games, meant that the U.S. will not be going to the World Cup in 2018.
