    Amid hurdles, efforts underway to get vaccine to at-risk people of color Janet Yellen heads to Capitol Hill for confirmation hearing A meaningless Kansas 3-pointer at the buzzer was a horrible bad beat for college basketball bettors Oh, bad beats. They are always terrible. © Provided by For The Win This one is a pretty standard one in basketball — a last-second shot at the buzzer than makes no difference to the winner and loser goes in, but because bettors have money on the spread, it makes a HUGE difference to them. Here, we have the Kansas and Baylor ending from Monday night. The Bears were up 77-66 over the Jayhawks when Kansas’s Chris Teahan took a DEEP three near the logo at the buzzer and banked it in. The final score was 77-69, and if you had Baylor minus-8.5 or 9, you are VERY mad. Also: check out...

    Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been left off the final shortlist for the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award for first time in 10 years, with Kevin De Bruyne and Robert Lewandowski set to battle it out for the individual prize. Ronaldo, who currently plies his trade in Italy with Juventus, has picked up the accolade on three occasions and also has a total of nine nominations to his name, while Barcelona superstar Messi has won it two times and made the final shortlist in six of the last 10 seasons. Both men have stood out as the best players of their generation for well over a decade, but as they continue to advance into their thirties, an inevitable changing of the guard is beginning to take shape. Juventus exited the Champions League at the last 16 last season after a surprise defeat to Lyon, while Barca were knocked...

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russia hired Valery Bragin as coach of the men’s national hockey team on Friday as it gears up to defend its Olympic title in 2022. Bragin moves up from his longtime role in charge of the Russian under-20 team, which he led to the silver medal at this year’s world junior championships. The Russian Hockey Federation didn’t say for how long Bragin’s contract runs. Bragin said his main aim was to prepare the team for next year’s world championships with a focus on players from outside the NHL.
