Harsh reality: RHS frosh earns win vs. Lewis Cass
SOFTBALL

Lewis Cass' 7-6 win over Rochester in last year's Class 2A, Sectional 38 softball sectional quarterfinals was a harsh ending to the Lady Zs' season.

RHS threw some Harsh reality right back at the Lady Kings in their first meeting since Friday.

That would be freshman pitcher Ady Harsh, who fired a complete-game five-hitter and allowed no earned runs as RHS edged Lewis Cass 2-1.

Plunk Rock: Down 9-0, RHS earns split on walk-off HBP
Falling behind 9-0 in the first inning to a team that made semistate last year might not be a good way to start.

BOYS GOLF

North Carolina beats Gonzaga in foul-filled national title game
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - It's OK, Carolina, you can open your eyes.

An unwatchable game turned into a beautiful night for the Tar Heels, who turned a free-throw contest into a championship they've been waiting an entire year to celebrate.

Justin Jackson delivered the go-ahead 3-point play with 1:40 left Monday and North Carolina pulled away for a 71-65 win over Gonzaga that washed away a year's worth of heartache.

It was, in North Carolina's words, a redemption tour - filled with extra time on the practice court and the weight room, all fueled by a devastating loss in last year's title game on Kris Jenkins' 3-point dagger at the buzzer for Villanova.

Prediction: Time for Cubs fans to enjoy a season
As a Cubs fan, I think I've been reluctant to pick the Cubs in my annual baseball predictions column for fear that I somehow overrated them. But the Cubs won the World Series last year, as you may recall. No longer am I afraid to look at things through Cub-colored glasses.

Purdue not quite Kansas
While we await for the high school basketball coaching carousel to come to a full and complete stop, here are some things that have crossed the mind of a sportswriter cooped up in the office:

• The Purdue men's basketball team has come a long way. And they still have a long way to go. Purdue finished in last place in the Big Ten just three years ago. This year, they won the Big Ten and made the Sweet 16.

Swanigan scores 18, but Kansas routs Purdue
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - It took about 10 minutes for Kansas guards Frank Mason III and Devonte Graham to slow down, gain their composure and get everything under control in their Midwest Regional semifinal.

When that happened, everything promptly sped up for Purdue.

The pace of the game turning in their favor, the high-flying Jayhawks proceeded to wear down the bigger, stronger Boilermakers on Thursday night. And by the time Mason and Graham finished pouring in 26 points apiece, No. 1 seed Kansas had coasted to a 98-66 victory and a spot in the Elite Eight.
