Panthers looking for second straight win

Nov. 20—The Kentucky Wesleyan College men’s basketball team will look for its second straight victory when the Panthers host East-West University Saturday afternoon.

Tipoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at the Sportscenter.

The Panthers (2-1) enter following Tuesday’s 72-48 victory over Midway on Tuesday, and they’re looking to continue that momentum against a relatively unknown opponent.

KWC coach Drew Cooper likened East-West to Midway, which actually led the Panthers 34-33 at halftime before Wesleyan pulled away in the second half.

“They’re similar in terms of athleticism and explosiveness,” Cooper said. “If we don’t guard, then it will be a long afternoon.”

One area where the Panthers got a big lift in their home opener, Cooper added, wasn’t on the floor at all.

Prior to Tuesday’s game, the Kentucky Wesleyan administration set up a new student section — in the Sportscenter’s lower seating area, opposite the opponents’ bench. Cooper hopes

Oilers’ McDavid dazzles again with absurd goal vs. Jets

Two weeks after his electrifying 1-on-4 goal put the New York Rangers in a coffin, Connor McDavid absolutely barbecued the Winnipeg Jets. (Getty)

Birth. Death. Taxes. Connor McDavid making an absolute mockery of the sport of hockey on a regular basis. These are life’s only guarantees. 

It’s been a mere, like, 12 days since McJesus last used his alien skills to obliterate an entire NHL franchise, so naturally it was time for No. 97 to claim a fresh victim with yet another (his third already this season?) goal-of-the-year bid, this time against the Winnipeg Jets, who have felt this dude’s wrath before.

He absolutely rips through the neutral zone unbothered, draws in three white shirts, evades at least four stick-checks while controlling the puck at full speed before putting it top bunk past one of the best goalies on planet earth. 

In other words, just another day the office for the pride of York Region:

It’s pretty absurd how absolutely incredible — and similar — McDavid’s tallies versus the Jets and Rangers were,
