Published Add your comment

We begin in the NFL where the New England Patriots are facing the prospect of being without one of their top defensive talents for the start of the 2015 season. Linebacker Donta Hightower is set to be ruled out for between six to seven months after surgery on a shoulder injury. Across to college basketball and the latest round of March Madness games took place last night. All four of the higher seeds won out to progress to the Elite Eight, with overall number one seed Kentucky routing West Virginia 78-39. Meanwhile in the pros, Houston Rockets’ Patrick Beverley may be done for the season. The team’s starting point guard is set to see specialists with a view to surgery on his wrist. And finally, in baseball David Ortiz has again denied that he has ever knowingly used steroids. The Boston Red Sox star has faced suspicion ever since 2003 reports that he had failed a PED test.
