McNeese State defeats Texas A&M-CC 75-71

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) Desharick Guidry scored 16 points to lead four McNeese State players in double figures in a 75-71 Southland Conference victory over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Thursday night.

The Cowboys (7-7, 1-3), who had lost their last four games, trailed 25-17 with 8:11 remaining in the first half. But a 3-pointer by Ledrick Eackles started them on a 22-10 run over the remainder of the half for a 39-35 lead.

McNeese State never trailed in the second half. The Islanders (1-12, 0-3) trimmed a 10-point lead to two, 52-50 with 11:07 left, but another 3-pointer by Eackles started the Cowboys on an 11-2 run.

Eackles finished with 15 points, Kevin Hardy had 14 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and Craig McFerrin had 11 points for McNeese State.

Will Nelson scored 24 to pace Texas A&M-CC, which has no seniors on its roster. Johnathan Jordan added 17 points and nine assists.

T.J. Oshie shows off his fancy skills with stellar dangle and finish

The oohs and ahhs were in full force on Wednesday as fans rose to their feet at Capital One Arena midway through the second period.

That's because T.J. Oshie put his tremendous stickhandling on display against the Bruins, perfecting a dangle around a pair of Boston defenders before scoring backhanded, finishing top-shelf.

Honestly, words can't give the move its proper justice. Just watch for yourself.

The goal was Oshie's second of the game and 13th of the season, putting the Capitals up 2-1 in the second period. 

If Oshie's goal does not make Sportscenter's Top 10 Plays tomorrow morning, I'm not sure what will.

Sunday's Steelers-Bills clash will be a special reunion for the Edmunds family

Sunday's Steelers-Bills clash will be a special reunion for the Edmunds family

When the Steelers host the Bills on Sunday Night Football in Week 15, something will happen in the NFL that has not happened since 1927. Yes, actually.

Sunday's game will feature three brothers playing in the same game, Buffalo's Tremaine and Pittsburgh's Terrell and Trey Edmunds.

The 2018 NFL Draft saw two of the brothers go in the first round, Tremaine to the Bills and Terrell to the Steelers. It was the first time in the league's history that two brothers were drafted in the first round of the same draft.

Trey, who went undrafted in 2017, joined the Steelers practice squad in 2018 and was activated to the active roster in October. All three are expected to be active on Sunday.

Both 2018 first-round picks have had solid seasons in 2019. Terrell has started every game for Pittsburgh this season and is second in the team in tackles, trailing only rookie Devin Bush. Tremaine, who's also started every game for the Bills, leads Buffalo in tackles with 97.

Trey, who plays running back, has played sparingly on offense. He has 92 rushing yards this season on 22 carries.

During the 2018 pre-draft process, NBC Sports Washington was able to get an inside look on the Edmunds family in the short documentary E-Boys. The clip shows the growth of the family through their adolescence and chronicles how the brothers put aside their brotherly competition in order to push each other to be the best player and person they could. 

Now, they all are able to celebrate their successes on football's biggest stage. You can watch the whole documentary (Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV) here.
