Good morning, Sports fans!  Davey Mac here with a new Sports Report for ya!  We’ve got a new World Series champion, NBA and NHL scores, and a preview of tonight’s NFL matchup!  But first!

Legendary and controversial Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight died yesterday.  He was 83.  Knight led Indiana to three National Championships and his 1975 Hoosiers squad is the last team to go undefeated and win the Championship.

He also was controversial in nature…and was eventually let go by Indiana University following a physical confrontation with a player.  It was this intensity yet edgy nature that led to Knight being the inspiration for Gene Hackman’s character in the film Hoosiers.  Knight himself was also featured in the movie Anger Management, starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, in a fun cameo.

Knight’s basketball legacy is pretty sterling.  Not only is he considered to be one of the greatest coaches of all time…but his protégé Mike Krzyzewski (who played for Knight at Army) went on to win 5 National Championships.

All in all…it was a legendary career for Knight…who had his up’s and down’s…but his success on the court is inarguable.  Check out 9 Times Bobby Knight Caused A Stir below followed by the Scoreboard!

  • Bobby Throws A Chair

    Bobby Knight really hated Purdue.  And when a Boilermaker was shooting a free throw one time…Knight…who thought his Hoosier player had been victimized by a bad call…threw a chair across the court.

  • Game Face

    Bobby Knight has no idea what the term “game face” means and is more than happy to show his own interpretation of said phrase.

  • Texas Rangers Win The World Series

    Now on to the Scoreboard!  Let’s start with baseball…where the Texas Rangers won their first World Series in franchise history last night…as Texas shut out the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 5…5 to nothing…to take the Series, 4 games to 1.  Texas shortstop Corey Seager was named the World Series MVP.   Texas becomes just the third team in MLB history (1969 Mets and 1914 Boston Braves) to win the World Series just two years after losing a 100 games.  Amazing!
