US Report

It has been a big 24 hours in the world of college basketball with all 64 spots in this month's NCAA Tournament having been filled following Selection Sunday.

Elsewhere, in the pros, there is concern over LeBron James after a nasty sounding injury for the Cavs star, NFL free agency continues at pace and David Villa got NYCFC off to a perfect start in their first ever home MLS game.


LeBron James is a doubt as the Cleveland Cavaliers prepare to take on his former team the Miami Heat tonight.

James tweaked his right knee after landing awkwardly during Cleveland’s win over Orlando on Sunday and explained to reporters in the aftermath of the 123-108 win that it was a scary moment.

"It was a scary moment for myself, obviously," said LeBron on the second half incident.

"I couldn't get my foot from up underneath me, and I was able to play through it. Obviously I'll see how I feel tomorrow and go from there. But I haven't [had] one of those falls, I don't know if ever, but in a pretty long time."

LeBron managed to play out the remainder of the game but it remains to be seen whether, with the adrenaline now having worn off, the four-time NBA MVP will be able to take to the court against his former team on Monday evening.

NCAA Basketball

One of the biggest days in the college sport calendar took place last night, with Selection Sunday having revealed just which teams will be taking part in the NCAA Tournament.

With the final bracket for this year’s March Madness now set, Kentucky, Duke, Wisconsin and Villanova were selected as the number one seeds.The biggest surprise meanwhile saw UCLA sneak into the NCAA Tournament. Games get underway this Tuesday.


Meanwhile, in the NFL, defensive end Michael Johnson has returned to the Cincinnati Bengals just one year after leaving the team. Johnson has signed a four-year, $20 million deal.

Johnson was a big money free agency signing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.


And finally, New York City FC recorded a 2-0 win over the New England Revolution in their first ever-home MLS game. David Villa opened the scoring at Yankee Stadium.

NYCFC's result means the expansion franchise are unbeaten through their first two games of the season, yesterday's win following up a road tie against fellow newcomers Orlando City.
