This week the Houston Rockets lose Yao Ming for the season and the Memphis Tigers finally lose a game. See what else happened!

Yao Out For the Year

Just when things were looking good for the Houston Rockets, something had to ruin it. Winners of 13 straight games, the Rockets' playoff hopes were dampened when it was announced their star center Yao Ming due to a stress fracture in his left foot. The Rockets, who are currently in seventh place in a tight playoff race, were playing their best ball of the season this past month. The injury is also devastating for Yao, who may miss the 2008 Summer Olympics in his native country of China because of the injury

Memphis Loses

In one of the best college basketball games of the season, the second ranked Tennessee Volunteers defeated and top ranked Memphis Tigers 66-62 last Saturday. The Tigers were the nation's last unbeaten team and the game was at Memphis so this was a major upset. Although Tennessee star Chris Lofton only scored seven points, he hit crucial free throws in the final seconds to secure the victory for the Vols. A few days after the win, Tennessee became the new number one team in the nation and have a 25-2 record.

Fischer to Play in Charity Game

In November 2005, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jiri Fischer collapsed on the bench during a game against the Nashville Predators. Fischer's heart stopped and paramedics had to use an automatic external defibrillator to revive him. This Saturday, Fischer plans to play hockey for the first time in over two years at a charity hockey game that will raise money for the same automatic external defibrillators that saved his life.

  • The Los Angeles Lakers have been on fire lately, they have won nine in a row and are now the top team in the Western Conference!
  • Apparently Congress is not buying Roger Clemens' testimony about whether or not he used performance-enhancing drugs. The FBI has begun an investigation on the baseball star.
