Sport Sunday New Year's Day Edition



Sport Sunday:






In Canada, hockey season is in full swing.  New Year's Day means a Winter Classic!   The Detroit Red Wings will visit the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Centennial Classic in Toronto. The Original Six rivals head outdoors to celebrate the National Hockey League's 100th anniversary.  


In the United States:  the last Sunday of regular season NFL means Football.  
Adrian Peterson

Sunday night football will bring Green Bay (9-6) at Detroit (9-6) in a showdown for the NFC North title (with the loser possibly earning a wild-card berth). Aaron Rodgers has thrown 11 Touchdowns and 0 Interceptions on Green Bay's current five-game winning streak, but Detroit has been very strong at home, and have been winners of their last six games at Ford Field.

NCAA Basketball Sunday pits Syracuse vs. Boston College in an ACC opener at Conte Forum. Then-freshman Tyler Lydon's 20 points led the Orange to a 75-61 win here last year.  The day also features Penn State at Rutgers in Big Ten play in Piscataway. Nittany Lions freshman Lamar Stevens and Rutgers junior Deshawn Freeman are forwards to watch. Penn State prevailed 70-58 here last season.  Marquette, coming away from a convincing win at Georgetown, visits Seton Hall this afternoon.  The basketball day concludes this evening with Washington State at Washington. Wazzu senior forward Josh Hawkinson and Huskies freshman star Markelle Fultz highlight this Pac-12 opener at Alaska Airlines Arena. UW swept last season's series 99-95 in OT.

England's Premier League soccer brings Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace and Watford vs. Tottenham.  Tottenham is currently leading in that game 4-0.  Most other national leagues, in Europe and elsewhere, are on rest this week, some for several weeks. 

In Cricket, tomorrow (or today already for some of you) South Africa vs. Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, begins at Cape Town, January 2-6, 2017.  South Africa is heavily favored, as Sri Lanka is coming from a defeat at Port Elizabeth, and has had only a day to rest and practice.  South Africa coach Russell Domingo said "We want to win the Test series but more important is the brand of cricket we want to keep playing. We want to play it positive and aggressive..."
