    An Ice Storm Is Headed Straight for Dallas. For Real This Time.

    Two weeks ago, Dallas breathed out a triumphant chuckle when the massive winter storm that promised to encase the city in ice and smother all signs of life arrived instead as a chilly but gentle rain.

    Prime Prep, Deion Sanders' Suspect Charter School, Might Have America's Best Hoops Team

    Watch Emmanual Mudiay on the court and it's not hard to see how the junior point guard came to be ESPN's No. 3 recruit in the country, or why University of Kentucky head coach John Calipari would take such a keen interest. He's big, for one, 6-foot-4 and almost 200 pounds, and he plays with a grace ... More >>

    When Underdogs Rule We're Left With March ... Badness

    NBA Rookies John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins Teach The Other Rooks How To Dougie

    The NBA's love affair with hip-hop is nothing new. And, really, neither is seeing NBA stars do hip-hop dances--or, even more specifically, Dallas-born dances. At the 2009 NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix, NBA stars LeBron James, Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal and Nate Robinson all flashed either the Do ... More >>

    Sweet Sixteen: Meet Me at Hooters

    ​I'm not austistic. Neither am I 17. Nor an, um, liar? My March Madness bracket is far from perfect, but I'm still leading the contest at 105.3 The Fan and it's still worth tuning in to see if Kentucky can win it all for me.

    If SMU Has Grown Tired of Matt Doherty, I Got a Name For You

    ​Make it 17 years and counting that SMU won't be invited to March Madness. With head coach Matt Doherty's rebuilding program on a pace that's as slow as refrigerated honey - or is it simply a treadmill? - is it time for a change?
