… right where we left off

LUKA GARZA IOWA The 6' 11", 256-pound center scored a school-record 740 points as a junior, helping Iowa lead the Big Ten in offense (77.7 points per game). Then he withdrew from the NBA draft, to the delight of Hawkeyes fans. Photograph by Simon Bruty ZIA COOKE & ALIYAH BOSTON SOUTH CAROLINA Newcomers Cooke (near right: a 5’ 9” guard who scored 12.0 points per game) and Boston (a 6' 5" forward who set freshman Gamecocks records for field goal percentage, blocks and offensive rebounds) guided South Carolina last year to a season-ending No. 1 ranking for the first time in program history. Now they’re back to finish it off in—hopefully—a resumed NCAA tournament. Photograph by Kevin D. Liles JARED BUTLER BAYLOR The 6' 3", 195-pound junior guard is the preseason Big 12 Player of the Year for good reason:…

the last dance

THIS COLLEGE basketball season is shaping up as a going-away party for some high-profile programs. They’d better enjoy the Madness this March, because we probably won’t be seeing them around Bracketville for a while thereafter. Kansas, Arizona, Louisville, Auburn, N.C. State, Creighton, USC, South Carolina, Alabama, TCU and LSU have been playing penalty-free for the past couple of seasons while NCAA infractions cases are ongoing. Postseason bans are coming for some—maybe all—of them, but not yet. Their cases, which originated from the sweeping federal investigation of corruption within the sport more than three years ago, remain unresolved. That has infuriated many of their competitors, who keep losing games (and NCAA tournament bids) to them. “If nothing is done, the message is that cheating is O.K.,” says South Carolina coach Frank Martin. “You…

THE FRONT page of the Chicago Tribune on July 10, 1895, carried the usual array of sensational stories—political infighting, a diamond heist and a lethal fire at a factory. There was also some good news: world to be saved proclaimed the headline above an article about the Christian Endeavor movement. Nowhere did the Tribune mention the announcement, made a day earlier, that the city would host something in November that had never been seen in the U.S.: a car race. The course would run between Chicago and Milwaukee, with $5,000 in prize money (nearly $155,000 today) at stake. That the Trib would overlook the news wasn’t a shock. For starters, a rival paper, the Chicago Times-Herald, was sponsoring the race. But more than that, in 1895 cars were an anomaly. Most people…

sweat safely

IF YOU’VE ever worn a mask while working out, you’re likely familiar with the feeling: a constant suction with each inhale, drawing in the damp fabric, followed by a quick exhale, a puff of moist air and a creeping anxiety as tasks suddenly feel more strenuous. “You’re breathing through a shield, so it becomes a bit more difficult to move air,” says Dr. John Porcari, an exercise physiology and sport science professor at the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse. Wearing a facial covering reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19, but for many, it’s seen as a hindrance to exercising and the benefits that come with it. While research on the potential decrease in oxygen levels, which could cause lightheadedness, is still in the early stages, Porcari says some types of masks are more…

high cheese

WATCH WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS Netflix As the NFL rolls on and the NBA and MLB celebrate the (mostly) successful stagings of the Finals and the World Series, spare a thought for the lesser sports, the ones that haven’t come back. Like cheese rolling. Every spring (though not in 2020, due to COVID-19), hundreds of people descend on the village of Brockworth in southwest England to chase an eight-pound wheel of Double Gloucester down Cooper’s Hill. It’s dangerous, and it’s not for everyone. “As a vegan, I wouldn’t put my life at risk to chase a cheese,” says a local constable in Netflix’s new documentary series We Are the Champions, which spotlights some of the world’s more offbeat competitions. Rainn Wilson is the host, and he’s perfect. Dog dancing and how best…

BEFORE SHE became, at 20, the youngest women’s world champion in U.S. weightlifting history, netting her appearances on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and the Today show, Kate Nye bombed out: She failed to make a single lift at the 2019 Junior Pan American Championships. Upon returning from Havana she stayed in bed for about a week, plunging into the deepest depression she had ever experienced. Nye had struggled with the condition for two years but had never reached out for professional help. At the encouragement of her husband, Noah, she sought out medical attention and was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. Her mental illness influenced her moods, her sleep and her performance. With the help of medication and therapy, Nye returned to win the 71 kg division at the…
