UAlbany’s Tyler Oedekoven, twice SportsCenter Top 10 star, enters transfer portal

When University at Albany wide receiver Tyler Oedekoven entered the NCAA transfer portal, he had two great highlights in his reel to attract interest from other schools.

Oedekoven, who made the ESPN SportsCenter Top 10 Plays in consecutive weeks during the 2019 season, said Tuesday he’s moving on for academic reasons. He announced his decision to leave Monday on Twitter.

Oedekoven, who’s on course to receive his bachelor’s degree in business administration this spring, said he wants to study business analytics in graduate school. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

Lakers star Anthony Davis out at least 1 month with MCL sprain from Timberwolves loss [Video]

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will be out for at least a month after suffering an MCL sprain in his left knee, the team said Saturday.

Davis left Friday night’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the third quarter after his knee was rolled up on by Jaden McDaniels — which sent the two to the court while Davis grabbed his leg in pain.

He slowly walked off the court and into the tunnel toward the locker room after standing up, but collapsed in pain in the tunnel.

He finished with nine points and one rebound in 20 minutes in the Lakers’ 110-92 loss at the Target Center.

Davis underwent an MRI in Chicago on Saturday — ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Bulls on Sunday — which revealed the MCL sprain.

With his four-week timeline, Davis will likely miss at least 14 games. The Lakers are set
