Hunter, Georgia State upset Northeastern 78-73

BOSTON (AP) R.J. Hunter matched his career high with 27 points as Georgia State ended Northeastern's unbeaten Colonial Athletic Association run 78-73 Wednesday night.

Georgia State (11-12, 6-4) trailed 46-39 at halftime but went ahead 54-52 on Hunter's 3-pointer with 13:55 left. The bucket came amid a 24-2 run that put the Panthers up 66-54 with 7:49 remaining. Hunter scored 13 points during that span, including a trio of 3-pointers.

Northeastern (13-8, 8-1) pulled back within 70-69 with 2:22 left, but made just 1 of 3 shots in the final 2 minutes while Georgia State hit 6 of 8 free throws.

Reggie Spencer scored 17 points for the Huskies, who had their eight-game winning streak snapped. Northeastern was attempting to match its best conference start in program history - a 9-0 start in ECAC North play in 1986-87.

The Panthers shot 50.9 percent (28 of 55), including 11 of 26 on 3-pointers.

NFL plans to re-air the entire 2019 season on the RedZone channel

NFL plans to re-air the entire 2019 season on the RedZone channel

Missing football? So are we, and the NFL has come up with a plan to fix that.

The league announced Friday that for the next 17 days starting on Monday, April 6, the NFL RedZone channel will re-air each week of the 2019 season, as fans will get to re-live the entire experience of each Sunday this past fall.

Broadcasts will begin with Week 1 on Monday and carry on through April 22, the day before the NFL Draft. Week 2 will be shown on Tuesday, Week 3 on Wednesday, and so on.

The seven-hour program will begin at three different times each day: 8 a.m., 3 p.m., and 10 p.m. on the NFL RedZone channel. 

This move comes just a couple of weeks after the NFL made their premium streaming service, NFL Game Pass, free to all fans through May 31.

With everyone expected to remain inside across the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NFL has come up with a solid way to pass the time.

Mystics' Elena Delle Donne, Wizards Japanese Media each named finalists for Shorty Awards

Mystics' Elena Delle Donne, Wizards Japanese Media each named finalists for Shorty Awards

Outside of her exceptional play on the court, winning an MVP and WNBA title in 2019, Mystics superstar Elena Delle Donne could come home with a different kind of hardware this summer. 

Delle Donne's video highlighting her achievement joining basketball's elite 50-40-90 club, is a finalist for a Sports Shorty Award. The Shortys is an annual award show recognizing those produce real-time, short-form content across multiple social media platforms. 

The 50-40-90 club consists of players who've shot over 50% from the field, 40% from three and 90% from the free-throw line over the course of an entire season. Delle Donne shot 51.5% from the floor, 43% from three and 97.4% on her free throws in 2019 and became the first player in WNBA history to join the exclusive club.

Only eight NBA players have ever posted 50-40-90 shooting numbers, and Delle Donne's video rightfully equates her accomplishment to the men. 

It doesn't stop there for DC basketball's representation at the Shorty Awards. 

Wizards Japanese Media is also a finalist for a Sports Shorty following its first season on the NBA beat. After the Wizards drafted Japanese-born Rui Hachimura ninth overall in the 2019 NBA Draft, they also launched a website, twitter account and mobile app to capture the excitement of a brand new group of fans. 

Both Wizards Japanese Media and Delle Donne are among six finalists for the Sports Shorty category and the winners will be announced during a digital ceremony on May 3.
