Of all the impressive wins top-ranked Kentucky has collected in marquee games this season, Saturday's 84-67 dismantling of No. 18 Arkansas speaks a little louder than most. The Wildcats clinched the Southeastern Conference regular-season title, and the Razorbacks rarely had a chance after the early minutes, a common theme in many of Kentucky's wins over ranked opponents. Andrew Harrison and Trey Lyles each scored 18 points as unbeaten Kentucky (29-0, 16-0) dominated the long-awaited matchup of the SEC's top two teams on both ends. Kentucky ended a three-game losing streak against the Razorbacks (23-6, 12-4) by beating them at their own high-speed, physical game, leading by as many as 31 points with 8 minutes left.

Nemtsov has some pundits consumed with the whodunit. “The biggest theory which dumbfounded me is the notion that Nemtsov’s own party ordered his murder because that’s just absolutely ridiculous and I can’t even believe it’s being dignified,” Knight says. Ms. Knight has a PhD degree in Russian politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Kyle Collinsworth believes BYU is peaking at the right time. Collinsworth scored 20 points as the Cougars beat No. 3 Gonzaga 73-70 on Saturday night, ending the Bulldogs' school-record 22-game winning streak and perhaps costing them a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. BYU has won six straight to boost its NCAA hopes heading into the West Coast Conference tournament. ''We've had a lot of ups and downs,'' Collinsworth said.


Investigators search for what triggered Missouri rampageYork leads No. 7 Arizona past No. 13 Utah, 63-57 (Yahoo Sports)

Police tape surrounds one of the crime scenes where Joseph Aldridge killed seven people in Tyrone, MissouriBy Kevin Murphy and Carey Gillam KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Reuters) - What led Joseph Aldridge to gun down seven people in a southern Missouri hamlet remained uncertain on Saturday, though authorities speculated that the death of the gunman's mother from cancer could have triggered the rampage. Aldridge, 36, embarked on a shooting spree late on Thursday in the rural community of Tyrone, going door-to-door in the wintry night, killing four relatives and three neighbors, and wounding another, before fatally shooting himself, police said. The massacre unfolded shortly after Aldridge's mother, 74-year-old Alice Aldridge, died from complications of metastatic lung cancer. Texas County Coroner Tom Whittaker said an autopsy revealed the fatal condition.

Gabe York went against what he'd been taught and took a chance. The Arizona reserve guard knew his late-game free throw was off-target but instead of retreating to the defensive end as his coach preaches for guards, he lunged for the rebound. While the big men for both teams wrestled each other underneath the basket, York snatched the ball and made a layup to give No. 7 Arizona a lead it wouldn't relinquish en route to a 63-57 victory over No. 13 Utah on Saturday night. ''I knew right away I missed it to the right and being a shooter I know whether I am going to make it or miss it,'' said York, who scored five of his 12 points in the final 2 minutes.


Homeland Security funding drama darkens U.S. fiscal outlookThunder's Russell Westbrook has surgery on cheekbone (Yahoo Sports)

Federal Protective Service vehicles, which is a branch of Homeland Security, park outside the U.S. District Courthouse in the Brooklyn borough of New YorkBy Richard Cowan and David Lawder WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congress narrowly averted a partial shutdown of the U.S. domestic security agency late on Friday night, but the forces behind the chaotic episode remain - fractious Republicans and House Speaker John Boehner's lack of control over them. In five to seven months, the federal debt ceiling will again be reached, and by October Congress must pass spending bills to keep the government running in the new fiscal year. Failing to deal effectively with these issues could have much more damaging repercussions - such as a broad government shutdown or a debt default - than a partial shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Some conservatives speak of ousting Boehner, but it is unlikely they can muster enough votes, while others made clear on Friday that they were willing to take big risks to score ideological points.     Brinkmanship like this, reminiscent of 2013's 16-day federal government shutdown, was supposed to be over.

Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook had surgery to repair a fracture to his right cheek Saturday and the NBA's hottest player will miss at least a game. The Thunder said the surgery took place in Los Angeles, where they will play the Lakers on Sunday, and that Westbrook would be re-evaluated next week. Westbrook was hurt in the final seconds of the Thunder's 115-112 loss Friday night in Portland, when he scored 40 points in his third straight triple-double. The MVP of the All-Star Game, Westbrook has had triple-doubles in his past three games.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One

Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.

Living Wages Are A Global Problem

The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.

Ukraine: Not What It Seems

After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.

In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder

In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.

Coup Or Civil War In Egypt

The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
