Tiger Crash, Caps Fall In OT, Jackets Sting Hokies
Golf icon Tiger Woods remains in a California hospital after a single-vehicle accident yesterday. Deputies say Woods hit a median with his rental SUV, causing the vehicle to roll some 700 feet before coming to a stop. The 15-time major winner suffered serious injuries to both legs, including several compound fractures. His surgery lasted well into the night.
Kasperi Kapanen’s overtime goal was the difference in last night’s 3-2 Pittsburgh win over the Capitals. Washington got goals from Richard Panik and Conor Sheary in the second period to take a 2-1 lead, before the Pens knotted things up at the end of regulation. The two teams meet again tomorrow night in DC, starting at 6:45 on The river 95-3.
Georgia Tech broke a 24-all halftime deadlock by outscoring Virginia Tech 45-29 in the second half on the way to a 69-53 upset of the number-16 Hokies last night in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech could not shake off the rust of a 16-day layoff, as they fell to 14-5 on the season.
Number-10 WVU avoided an upset last night as they beat TCU 74-66. The 16-6 Mounties led by as many as 16, but could not shake the Frogs in winning their 6th consecutive Big-12 road game.
15th-ranked Virginia is back on the court tonight as they take on NC State in C’Ville. Tip off is 6:30.
And Shenandoah University Men’s hoop plays at Eastern Mennonite tonight at 7.
