Seven weekend sports stories you probably missed
The Deseret News publishes its premier sports content over the weekend, but those who don't subscribe to the newspaper usually miss out on some of the Deseret News' best work.
On Saturday, Jan. 26, BYU, Utah State and the Jazz all hit the hardwood. The Jazz overcame a late-game collapse that sent their contest into overtime and an eventual win.
The Aggies, however, were not so lucky. Despite holding their opponents to one field goal during the final eight minutes of the game, the Aggies dropped their fourth straight game and their second in the Spectrum.
Meanwhile, BYU proved to the WCC once again its strength in terms of fan support. When BYU visited Portland to take on the Pilots, there were more than a few BYU supporters in attendance.
Also, Kearns hosted the World Sprint Championships, an international speed-skating competition featuring the best skaters in the world.
