The Big Ten Conference has established a new benchmark in the how-high-is-up world of college sports finance: It recorded nearly $759 million in revenue during its 2018 fiscal year. The figure, which far exceeds any comparable annual figure for a college sports conference, was revealed in a new federal tax return that the conference provided Wednesday in response to a request from USA TODAY. It is a year-over-year revenue increase of 48 percent, with the conference reaching $512.9 million in fiscal 2017. Maryland’s loan from the Big Ten in fiscal 2018 was just under $31 million. When added to its revenue share of $26.1 million, this means...

Early on in Sunday’s Game 7 between the Raptors and Sixers, TNT announcer Kevin Harlan deemed the winner-take-all matchup one that “only a mother could love,” a reference to the horrendous shooting display the teams put on in the early going. Somewhat surprisingly, Kawhi Leonard — arguably the best player of this postseason so far, who came into Game 7 averaging 34 points and shooting 57 percent for the series — was part of the lackluster shot-making for a considerable chunk of the game. The Toronto star logged an uncharacteristically high volume, taking 30 shots through three quarters,1making only 10....

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez continues to serve as among the most bankable boxing stars in the world—even if his latest returns pale in comparison to his own lofty standards.

Vasiliy Lomachenko retained his WBO and WBA lightweight titles on Saturday, knocking out Anthony Crolla in the fourth round to move to 13-1 for his professional career. It wasn’t a close bout, not at all. Crolla lasted into the fourth round, but had very little offense at all outside of the first round. He was consistently backed up and out-boxed by Lomachenko, and had very little room to throw his own punches. Lomachenko got Crolla up against the ropes late in the third round and hit him with a flurry that lasted about 15-20 seconds on its own, and resulted...

Hussle was reportedly planning to attend an anti-gang violence meeting on the day he died, scheduled for not long after he and two other men were shot outside a store he owned called Marathon Clothing. While early news reports suggested Hussle’s murder was gang-related, the Los Angeles Police Department’s ongoing investigation has revealed that Hussle and his suspected killer — a man named Eric Holder, who was arrested Tuesday night — got into a heated argument prior to the shooting. While Holder is alleged to be a gang member himself, the New York Times reports that the LAPD does not...
