Around the Sports World

  • The St. Louis Blues won their first Stanley Cup after beating the Boston Bruins, 4-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday night. In related news, a Blues fan won $100K after placing a $400 bet on St. Louis to win the whole thing back in January. What a night that must have been for said fan.
  • At least six D-I college basketball programs will soon be notified that they committed Level I violations, the most egregious infractions under NCAA rules.
  • Police have determined that David Ortiz’s shooter was offered nearly $8K for the attack. Several suspects who may have been involved are currently in custody, including the alleged shooter and the possible coordinator.
  • In Mario Cristobal’s first year as head coach of Oregon, the Ducks went through some extreme highs and lows. With QB Justin Herbert returning another season wiser and more refined, UO should be able to find more consistency while navigating a manageable Pac-12 slate. Bill Connelly previews Oregon.
  • Game 6 of the NBA Finals tips-off tonight at 8:00 p.m. CT on ABC. The Golden State Warriors are attempting to pull off a major comeback after previously trailing in the series, 3-1. Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors are seeking the franchise’s first title in its 25 year history.
