๐ŸŽ“NCAA: The Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday in the antitrust case brought against the NCAA. Itโ€™s a complicated case that basically boils down to that the NCAA doesnโ€™t want to pay their student athletes. Nothing really new there. To dive deeper, check out this explainer from ESPN. The Court is set to rule in late spring/early summer. 

๐ŸˆNFL: The league has officially agreed to a 17-game season. Good. Now that thatโ€™s settled, we have bigger fish to fry: Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson now faces 21(!!!) separate lawsuits for sexual assault and innappropriate behavior, while 18 women have come out in his defense. Solid chance Deshaun sees zero games this season. Boy bye. 

๐ŸŽพTennis: The streak is over. After 23-straight hard court wins dating back to February 2020, No. 2 Naomi Osaka ended her run yesterday with a surprising straight-set loss to world No. 25 Maria Sakkari in the Miami Open quarterfinals. Time to start a new streak!
