College Crosse News.


With their win last night, Penn State stamped their ticket to the Big Ten Tournament. With their loss last night, Rutgers is not going to the Big Ten Tournament and is now firmly on the at-large bubble. The good news for the Scarlet Knights? Everyone else on the bubble is trying to do their best to not get the final at-large bid as well, so Rutgers is still in the hunt. Chris broke down everything from last night’s Rutgers vs. Penn State game here. #SundayFunday.

Big Ten Network highlights of last night’s game.

Our College Crosse Top 20 is out!!

Shout out to Drexel’s 75h anniversary team!!

Nice work, Michigan.

Desko was not too pleased with Syracuse’s decision-making in their game versus Binghamton.

Despite the win, Desko was not pleased with his team’s performance. “When we did get the ball, I thought we uncharacteristically turned it over,” he said. “I didn’t like a lot of our decisions today.” Syracuse turned the ball over 13 times. Midfielder Sergio Salcido was held to a no-goal game with three turnovers. And Ben Williams went only 8-for-20 at the X.


What’s Up, Philly?

GET MONEY!!: Philly expected to see a big payday as the host of the NFL Draft.

The NFL draft — now a major sporting event — is returning to its humble roots in Philadelphia, where the first draft was held in 1936 at the Ritz-Carlton.

From that small room, to the first televised draft in 1980, to the spectacle at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the NFL draft has become a tourism bonanza that generates millions of dollars in revenue for the host city and attracts hundreds of thousands of fans.

The NFL is expecting to see more people crammed outside the Art Museum and along Benjamin Franklin Parkway for the three-day 2017 draft in Philadelphia than at any previous draft in its 81-year history, by virtue of a one-of-a-kind outdoor amphitheater built specifically for the event.

The draft is expected to have a ripple effect on this region’s hospitality industry — filling hotel rooms, restaurants, sports bars, retail shops, and taxis.

World/National News.

Study finds that 1 in 5 people in the UK do not know how to change a lightbulb or boil an egg.

Are you handy enough that if a lightbulb went out in your home you’d be able to change it? Believe it or not, one in five people aren’t so skilled. In fact, a new survey of people in the United Kingdom finds not only do about 20 percent of people not know how to change a bulb — the same number aren’t sure how to boil an egg, either. The British insurance company Aviva recently released their annual Home Report which detailed, among numerous findings about how people do work around the house, relatively common tasks that people encounter. The company surveyed 2004 people across the UK in February and March about their habits and roles at home.
