Daily: 5 things we learned in sports on Saturday

5 things we learned in sports on Saturday:
1) North Carolina and UCLA are not the best teams in college basketball. Actually Kansas and Memphis are and they showed the world just how powerful they were in blowout wins over their counterparts on Saturday.

2) In what seems to be an everyday mention on the blog for now the Detroit Tigers have lost again and are now 0-5. The White Sox 5-3 win made sure that the Tigers would remain the only winless team in MLB.

3) Break out the Rays. Since removing the Devil out of their name they have won 75% of their games. Ok you caught me, I know they've only played four games. Still give some love to Tampa Bay, they have knocked off the Yankees on back to back nights and at 3-1 they are tied for the AL East lead.

4) Louisville's Earl Clark and Arizona's Jerryd Bayless have both decided to enter the NBA Draft. Not sure about where Clark will get drafted but a lot of NBA teams are looking at Bayless.

5) In the NBA the Celtics clinched homefield in the East and the Magic clinched the three seed.  The Nuggets lost despite Carmelo Anthony's 47 points and fell back into a tie for eighth in the West with Golden State.

What to Watch on Sunday:

1) NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Texas

Predictions for Sunday:
*Sorry I couldn't get these up on Saturday, but just in case you are wondering I would have picked BOTH North Carolina and UCLA. Not good.

1) Jeff Gordon gets Hendrick's first win of the year by winning at Texas.

2) Loreno Ochoa wins the LPGA's frist major of the year.

Given that your brackets all year have been so good and that you had Memphis rated where they should be, I was surprised to see you picked UCLA  over Memphis. At least you are honest about it even after the fact! You have done a great job on the brackets all season. I had picked the title game to be Memphis and Kansas and I figure Memphis will win by at least 10. keep up the GREAT work Dan!

Earl Clark will prove himself in the camps

Eric Gordon is the one that is so hyped and so unprepared, that I feel sorry for whoever drafts him, because they won't be getting what they expect.
