The Cavs’ Christmas Day loss to the Warriors shows they still have some work to do to compete against the defending champs. The Cavs lost 99-92 in the first meeting between the two teams since the NBA Finals.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says there were pluses and minuses from Monday’s game for the Cavs.

Kent State University is hiring an offensive coordinator from Syracuse to try and turn around its football program. Sean Lewis, 34, replaces former coach Paul Haynes, who had a 14-45 record in his five seasons.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says Kent State's struggling team shines a light on a bigger problem with Mid-American Conference football. 

The Browns have brought in a new general manager whose goal is to turn around the franchise – quickly. Owner Jimmy Haslam fired Vice President Sashi Brown last week after the team won just one game in two seasons. That same day, Brown was replaced by former Kansas City General Manager John Dorsey.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says Dorsey is partly credited for reviving the Chiefs during his four years there.

A former longtime coach at the University of Mount Union has been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Larry Kehres led the Purple Raiders to 11 Division III national titles in his 27 years of coaching the team. He’s still the school’s athletic director, while his son Vince succeeded him as coach.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says Kehres built Mount Union into a college football powerhouse.

After getting off to a slow start, the Cavs have been on a roll. They're on a nine-game winning streak, their longest in the regular season since 2015. And, they’re doing it without a couple key players acquired in the offseason. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says this new-look team has finally figured out how to win.
