🏈Cowboys: With the Dak Prescott saga behind them, the Cowboys have been able to focus on building around their QB1. There haven’t been any blockbuster deals yet, but the ’Boys did re-sign cornerbacks C.J. Goodwin and Jourdan Lewis, two key members of the defense. Welcome back.

  • Meanwhile, QB Andy Dalton won’t be returning after signing with the Chicago Bears — don’t let the door hit ya, TBH. Now Dallas is in the market for a new backup and some much-needed additions to the defense. Time to pay up, Jerry.

🎓🏀MBB: North Texas teams will be balling out on the big stage in Indianapolis. Odds are on hometown favorites like No. 1 Baylor and No. 3 Texas to make deep runs. But No. 14 Abilene Christian could spoil the Longhorns’ fun, while No. 13 North Texas looks poised for a first-round upset of their own. Check out our full preview before the action tips off tomorrow.

  • And the Big D is flyin’ high beyond the March Madness bubble too. The SMU Mustangs will make their fourth NIT tournament appearance beginning with today’s first round matchup vs. Boise State at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Pony up, y’all.

🏀Mavericks: Thanks to a team-leading 42 (!!) points from Luka Doncic, the Mavs rebounded from Monday’s loss, defeating the LA Clippers 105–89 last night. We love to see it. The Mavericks return to the court tomorrow for a 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT battle with the Portland Trail Blazers. Time to gain some ground.

In off-court news, our thoughts are with former Maverick Shawn Bradley, who announced yesterday that he was paralyzed following a bicycle accident in January. Maverick for life.
