Naburgs, Perez pace Stetson over N. Kentucky 71-59

DELAND, Fla. (AP) Joel Naburgs and Chris Perez each scored 17 points as Stetson picked up its fourth straight win, defeating Northern Kentucky 71-59 in Atlantic Sun Conference action Thursday night.

Naburgs also dished out eight of the Hatters' 18 assists. Aaron Graham and Adam Pegg added 13 points each for Stetson (8-10, 5-2).

Chad Jackson led Northern Kentucky (4-10, 2-4) with 15 points, and Ethan Faulkner had 12. Freshmen Jack Flournoy and Tyler White, who each set career highs with 18 points in the Norse's 67-53 win over Lipscomb on Jan. 11, scored six points each and shot a combined 4 for 18.

Stetson's 71 points were the second most allowed by Northern Kentucky this season - the Norse lead the Atlantic Sun with 53.4 points allowed per conference game.

The Hatters trailed 31-27 at halftime, but opened the second half with a 14-4 run and led the rest of the way.

The Vikings will be without Adam Thielen against the Redskins in Week 7

The Vikings will be without Adam Thielen against the Redskins in Week 7

When Kirk Cousins faces the Redskins on Thursday for the first time since leaving the franchise in 2018, the quarterback will be without arguably his favorite wide receiver.

Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will miss Thursday's contest vs. Washington with a hamstring injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

Thielen injured his hamstring crashing into a barricade after hauling in a touchdown in the Vikings' 42-30 victory over the Lions on Sunday. The injury isn't expected to be serious, and Thielen might have been able to play this week had the Vikings not been playing on Thursday night. Minnesota expects him to return to action next week.

The wide receiver is a considerable loss to the Minnesota offense, as only Stefon Diggs has more receiving yards for Vikings this season than Thielen. His six receiving touchdowns lead the team, too.

The Vikings have won four straight games, and even with Thielen's injury, are still more than a two-touchdown favorite over the 1-6 Redskins.

Check out Josh Norman's house featuring a personal barbershop, vibrating bed, and more

Check out Josh Norman's house featuring a personal barbershop, vibrating bed, and more

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins in 2016, at the time making him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. Well, No. 24 has definitely put some of that money to good use.

On the latest episode of Bleacher Report's 'Ditch the Playbook,' Norman took Adam Lefkoe on a tour of his Leesburg mansion. As you can expect, Norman had an array of things that not many homeowners have.

A notably big Batman fan, Norman's driveway has his customized 'JNo24' logo engraved, mimicking the style of the superhero's logo. He also has a lifesize painting of the superhero on his wall.

Norman takes Lefkoe through the entirety of his house, which features a personal barbershop, a home theater, a giraffe-skin rug, a real sword and Captain America shield, among others.

The unusualness of items that Norman owns led Lefkoe to ask the cornerback a question everyone has been itching to know.

"Do people in the NFL think you're weird?" Lefkoe asked.

"Yeah," Norman said. "They thinkin', like, 'Something's wrong with this guy. I know he's interesting, he's just a little off.'"

One of the last stops in the house is Norman's bedroom, where he sleeps on a massage-vibrating bed. Norman lets Lefkoe try it out, but Lefkoe admitted he didn't "feel comfortable."

If MTV Cribs ever makes a comeback, Josh Norman's house should be one of the show's first stops.
