Washington’s Ramon Sessions Draws Foul, Gets Layup to Fall High off Glass

The Washington Wizards were desperately fighting to stay alive in the fourth quarter of Game 2 against the host Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

Shots like this didn’t hurt.

Driving to the rim, Wizards veteran Ramon Sessions went up for a wild shot over Hawks big man Al Horford while being fouled by Dennis Schroder. Somehow, the ball went in after bouncing high off the glass, giving Sessions a chance for an and-1.

He converted to cut his team’s deficit to six points with just over nine minutes to play.

Big 12 Puts Conference Championship Game Talks on Hold

The Big 12 doesn’t have a conference title game in football, and that won’t change for the time being.

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

Conference commissioner Bob Bowlsby spoke to the media Tuesday about putting talks of adding a championship contest on hold, per ESPN.com’s Max Olson:

I really have been proud of our athletic directors because they chose to respond to not being in the playoff rather than react. I think they’ve been very thoughtful about it and continue to be thoughtful about it. We all believe that one year is not a long enough window or trial to draw any conclusions. We may find ourselves in better shape than some other conferences as a result of our model, not in spite of our model.

Fox Sports’ Stewart Mandel weighed in on what he took away from Bowlsby’s press conference:

Bowlsby refers to the College Football Playoff and how some perceived the lack of a Big 12 championship game as a detriment. Those with that line of thinking have to include TCU and Baylor, who were in contention for the top four in the country but couldn’t prove themselves on championship weekend.

Horned Frogs and Bears fans watched Ohio State smash Wisconsin 59-0 in the Big Ten title clash, secure the fourth and final playoff berth and go on to win the national championship.

Bomani Jones of ESPN offered his opinion on the situation:

Baylor lost quarterback Bryce Petty to the NFL, but TCU will welcome back incumbent signal-caller Trevone Boykin. The legitimate Heisman Trophy contender gives the Horned Frogs an inside track to a potential playoff spot.

All of the other Power Five conferences have one last opportunity to strengthen a postseason resume. Since the Big 12 missed out in a big way in the inaugural College Football Playoff, perhaps momentum for a change will gain steam if 2015 plays out similarly.

Outside pressure evidently caused the Big 12 to at least consider the possibility of a championship game as more of a pertinent priority. It seems those discussions will be placed on the back burner for the foreseeable future. 

Transportation Advocates Rally At City Hall For More MTA Funding

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mass transit advocates held a rally at City Hall on Tuesday, demanding more funding for the city’s subways and buses.

On Monday, Mayor Bill de Blasio agreed to bump the city’s share of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s budget to $125 million.

But MTA Chief Tom Prendergast said the city needs to triple their contribution to $300 million a year to help fill a $14 billion budget deficit, 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported.

Gene Russianoff, of the Straphangers Campaign, said the mayor’s call to expand programs like universal pre-K and affordable housing can only happen with a greater investment in public transportation.

“Subways are probably New York City’s most valuable asset,” Russianoff said.

Russianoff admits the MTA should’ve requested the extra funds sooner, but he believes the city needs to step up.

“From my point of view, it’s just not enough,” Russianoff said. “It’s like they’re getting a nickel fare and the city is making out like bandits.”

Russianoff said the city hasn’t made a fair contribution for decades.

“An analysis that was done by the city’s Independent Budget Office showed that if the city had just kept up with the rate of inflation in its contributions to the MTA it would be giving $363 million a year instead of the $100 million it gives now,” Russianoff said.

Russianoff told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond the city needs to show leadership or riders will suffer.

“You know, it won’t turn horrible overnight, but you know it will be on a downward direction and that’s not good for the city,” he said.

De Blasio’s budget will be unveiled Thursday.

He said he will go to Washington, D.C., next week to demand that the feds step up with extra money for city buses and subways.

Watch Zoë Kravitz & Miley Cyrus Blaze-Up in LOLAWOLF’s “Bitch” Video

When the spawn of Lenny Kravitz and everyone’s favorite Disney star gone rogue get together for some R&R in a hotel room, the outcome can only be something worthy of a Real World audition tape. The video for “Bitch,” by the Zoë Kravitz-fronted electro-pop project LOLAWOLF, shows the two singers sauntering about in their underwear, fooling around with some plastic guns, smoking blunts and playing Go Fish with a deck of Hannah Montana cards in a disheveled hotel room. Pair with some seriously cringeworthy lyrics (“Who’s the bad ass bitch that nobody heard that everybody heard of?”), voyeuristic VHS camera work and over two minutes worth of BTS footage, and you have a compelling case for what it’s like to be young, rich and an offspring of a famous musician.

Watch the video for “Bitch” above.
