\ Xavier University almost had the best game winning play maybe ever, but blew it at the buzzer in a 58-57 loss to St.Joseph’s in the Atlantic 10 tournament at the Barclays Center yesterday. Down 1 point and having to go the length of the court, they somehow managed to have a good pass, combined with good luck to get off a shot only a few feet from the rim to win the game, but the shot missed and Xavier lost. It was still incredible to watch. Check out the play after the jump.
According to retail-tracker NPD Group report, the Wii U only sold an estimated 64,000 consoles in the U.S. during the month of February and around 45,000 units in January and in December Wii U sold 460,000. The holiday season played a great role in the figures for December, after that Wii U has had a steady decline. It is expected that there will be a continued decline in sales because there are no plans for any major game release.
Prince William did well, picking Kate Middleton to be his bride, and they look happy as ever at the Cheltenham Racecourse for the Gold Cup Day! They parents to be were seen with big smiles, looking incredibly healthy, and stylish all while having fun. Kate was seen wearing a peach colored Joseph coat witha cute betty boop hat, she’s been seen wearing before. Prince William even put some money down on Africa Gold, although he couldn’t remember what races the horse was running in. All in all it looked like a fun event with friends of the Royal Couple. Check the gallery for pics of their day out at the races.
Seven people were killed in The Mermaid bar in Cancun, Mexico across town from the tourist area when two men came in firing semi automatic riffles. Four more were wounded yet none of them were tourist. The incident happened at a local bar that is on the outskirts of town, no tourists party there and its completely on the other side of town from the hotel row where the Spring breakers notoriously rage. According to sources most of the men killed were part of a Taxi drivers union, however police are still working on a motive. This year Cancun expects 43,000 visitors, a jump from the 25,000 last year due to growth in violent crimes in other notorious party areas of Mexico such as Acapulco. Hopefully they can keep the spring breakers safe. Hit the jump for more.
Those damn replacement refs. I personally still think overall they did a decent job, but many people would disagree. One of those people would definitely be Floyd as those refs cost him a BIG amount of money. $900,000 BIG! He did an interview with Jim Rome yesterday when he was asked about his gambling wins and losses, amongst other questions. Check out the video after the jump.

Justin Timberlake’s highly anticipated The 20/20 Experience will be released on March 19 and has already been streaming on iTunes. We know that Justin’s album will feature Jay-Z and will be produced by Timbaland. JT has been gearing us up for the release of the album by hitting the late night circuit and performing tracks such as “Suit & Tie,” “Pusher Love Girl,” and “Strawberry Bubblegum.” For what I’m hearing about the album (since for some reason I can’t stream it) it is not a disappointment! Check out some photos from the album photo shoot in the gallery.
