Rosey Knows Sports: Goodbye Chicago, and other playoff picks

The season of the Cinderella Bears will come to an end Saturday in Soldier Field, where the Bears host the Philadelphia Eagles.

Chandler boosts GW past La Salle

The Colonials earned a win they needed against La Salle Sunday afternoon, given the blowout they were coming off and the challenge they now face. Xavier rolls into town Thursday in what is typically the fiercest game of the season with a history that goes back to Shawnta Rogers’s buzzer-beater four years ago. Nothing was […]

Georgetown University halts student internet cheating

Around Campus
