Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic has picked up his 16th technical foul of the season and now faces a one-game suspension. Unless the NBA office rescinds the technical, Doncic will be forced to sit out the team’s game Monday night against against the Indiana Pacers. Doncic had been chirping at officials for most of Sunday's game against the Charlotte Hornets and finally got slapped with a technical midway through the third quarter. Dallas entered the day tied with Oklahoma City for 10th in the Western Conference but still out of position for a play-in tournament spot because the Thunder hold the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Mavericks.
Harry Kane’s golden touch continued for England as he struck a record-extending 55th goal for his country in a 2-0 win against Ukraine.

He got the chance to celebrate in front of his home fans at Wembley with another goal in England’s European Championship qualifier. Kane struck in the 37th minute when converting Bukayo Saka’s cross to the far post. Saka got on the scoresheet himself three minutes later. corner.
Dan Hurley got choked up when asked about his dad on the eve of UConn’s Sweet 16 game. Tears flowed again before the Huskies’ Elite Eight game, this time from thinking about what he considers his other family. Now Hurley will get to coach them at least one more game, next week in Houston. UConn has blitzed its way through the bracket so far, winning each of its four NCAA Tournament games by at least 15 points. The Huskies turned what was supposed to a dream Elite Eight game into a nightmare for Gonzaga to earn their first Final Four trip since winning the 2014 national title.
Christophe Laporte has won the first one-day classic race of his career. The Frenchman and teammate Wout van Aert secured a 1-2 finish at Gent-Wevelgem for the Jumbo-Visma team on Sunday. In pouring rain the duo resisted the peloton’s chase in the 260.9-kilometer (162-mile) race through Belgium after a 50-kilometer breakaway they launched on a steep ascent. Van Aert and Laporte celebrated together on their way to the finish line with the 2021 winner happy to let Laporte take the win. Marlen Reusser of Switzerland won the women’s race ahead of Megan Jastrab of the United States and Dutch rider Maike van der Duin.
Nick Bachem has pulled clear of the field with a faultless final-round 64 to win the Jonsson Workwear Open in South Africa by four shots for his first European tour title. The German carded eight birdies to go to 24 under par and leave his challengers behind at The Club at Steyn City. South Africans Hennie du Plessis and Zander Lombard tied for second on 20 under.
Marc Márquez has injured his right hand after crashing out of the season-opening Portuguese Moto Grand Prix. Márquez hurt his hand when he went down hard Sunday after slamming into the back of Miguel Oliveira’s bike. His Honda team said that the six-time MotoGP world champion has a “possible fracture to the first metacarpal of his right hand.” The race was won by defending champion Francesco Bagnaia. Race officials penalized Márquez for what they ruled “irresponsible riding.” He will serve a double long lap penalty at the next Argentina GP if he is fit to race.
It’s four wins out of five for Cambridge in one of England’s oldest sporting events after it powered to victory over Oxford in the men’s Boat Race. And it was a bold move by Cambridge cox Jasper Parish to find friendlier waters on the River Thames that proved the difference in the annual contest between the two universities which started in 1829. Cambridge now leads the rivalry 86-81. In the women’s Boat Race, Cambridge made it six straight wins after beating Oxford with another dominant performance in the 77th edition.
Florida Atlantic has defied expectation and description all season. The winningest team in Division I, but the lowest seed left in the NCAA Tournament, is heading to the Final Four with a squad that is greater than the sum of its interchangeable parts. To win four tournament games so far, each by single digits, has taken contributions from up and down FAU’s roster. The Owls have had three different leading scorers, three different leading rebounders and three different leaders in assists.
Primoz Roglic held off a challenge from Remco Evenepoel to win the Catalonia Volta in the Slovenian’s second victory since returning from surgery on his left shoulder. Roglic finished the week-long race six seconds ahead of Evenepoel, who narrowly won Sunday’s seventh stage. The Jumbo-Visma leader defended several attacks from Evenepoel through the hilly finish of the 135.8-kilometer (84-mile) stage which started and finished in Barcelona. Evenepoel went ahead at the end with Roglic crossing the finish line right behind the Belgian. Marc Soler was third. Roglic will likely face Evenepoel again at the Giro d’Italia starting in May.
