Scramble on for bids

Iowa State: To put itself in the NCAA mix, Iowa State needed to beat either Kansas or Kansas State when those teams visited Ames over the weekend. The Cyclones beat both and now sit at 6-3 in the league. They also have beaten Texas. To stay in the NCAA discussion, though, they need to avoid any “bad” losses and pick up a few road wins.

Kansas State: K-State has lost two in a row and three of its past five, and has fallen under .500 in league play. The Wildcats have been swept by Oklahoma. But there is no true “bad” loss, and they own wins over Missouri, Alabama and Long Beach State. A four-game stretch in mid-February involving contests against Kansas (home), Baylor (road), Missouri (road) and Iowa State (home) likely will determine whether the Wildcats get an NCAA bid.

Texas: The Longhorns are 3-6 in league play. But of their nine remaining games, seven are eminently winnable (all but the return games against Baylor and Kansas). Texas already has played Missouri twice and has yet to play Texas Tech. Thing is, while the schedule is a good one, the Longhorns likely need to beat either Baylor or Kansas (along with the other games) to have a shot.

Dundee was an ambassador for boxing

Muhammad Ali didn’t need anyone to tell him how to box. He came by it so naturally that there wasn’t much Dundee was going to teach him in the ring to help him become a legendary fighter.What he needed was someone in his corner shouting motivation, someone in his corner who always had his back.

“There was a time you couldn’t tell Ali anything, but Angelo knew how to motivate Ali,” promoter Bob Arum said. “Without Angelo, Ali doesn’t get out of the “Thrilla in Manila.” Without Angelo I think Joe Frazier destroys him. He needed someone like that in his corner.”

So did Leonard, who was taking a beating in his epic first fight with Hearns in 1981. His face was swollen by the thunderous right hands landed by Hearns and he seemed baffled when Hearns began boxing him from the outside instead of trying to slug it out as he had in the early rounds.
