Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Wednesday:
Kansas beat Kansas State with a questionable buzzer-beater. The third-ranked Jayhawks downed their rival with a coast-to-coast layup from Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk at the buzzer. But wait. How many steps did he take? Mykhailiuk actually picked up his dribble at the three-point line and yet no travelling was called. Even in the NBA it would be hard to get away with that, but Kansas did.
Lucas Perez helps Arsenal overcome a deficit with a moment of brilliance. Arsenal trailed AFC Bournemouth 3-0 in the 70th minute. But they got one goal from Alexis Sanchez. Five minutes later they got goal No. 2 from Perez on this nifty pass from Olivier Giroud and an even niftier volley from Perez. They would eventually even the match up and save a point in the 92nd minute.
Justin Bailey with the hustle-D and stop-on-a-dime shot. The Columbus Blue Jackets won their 16th straight game and Alex Ovechkin’s overtime winner for the Washington Capitals tied Jaromir Jagr for the most overtime goals in NHL history. But the goal of the night goes to Bailey of the Sabres who netted his first career goal in Buffalo’s 4-1 win over the New York Rangers. The goal came when the Rangers got sloppy in their own end and Bailey seemingly put on the brakes and took a shot all in one motion.
The Swaggy P Bonus. Maybe Swaggy P had a little too much swag on this shot. Maybe he didn’t. Nick Young is just gonna Nick Young and there is nothing we can do about it. (via CJ Fogler).
