NYC Weekend Sports Round Up

The city hosted a number of big basketball games over the weekend, including several marquee high school hoops match ups.

On the men’s side, No. 7 Christ the King battled back from 5-point deficit in the fourth quarter to win at No. 5 Rice, while their women’s squad (No. 2) knocked off No. 1 Nazareth. King guard Bria Smith, who was recently named a McDonald’s All-American, poured in a game-high 31 points.

Max Preps unveilved its latest men’s national top 25 today, and two squads from New Jersey top the list. As far as local schools, the Post updated its top 10 men’s and women’s  teams, with Boys & Girls on top of the men’s rankings and Christ the King No. 1 on the women’s side (flip-flopping with Nazareth.)

On the pro level, the Knicks split a home and away with the Sixers. In the game at the Garden, rookie Landry Fields continued to build upon his impressive season, putting up a career-high 25 points to go with 10 boards. Further, he outplayed fellow rookie (and much higher draft pick) Evan Turner.

And while no New York teams participated in yesterday’s Superbowl, the storm that blanketed Dallas did give fans a taste of what a cold-weather (cough, New York) Superbowl will be like. While the game itself had a number of interesting story lines (read: Rodgers, Farve, Roethlisberger, etc), so did the stadium, which, in addition to dealing with snow-related injuries, had a major ticket fiasco on its hands.
