Where to find today's games.
Justin Patton loves to dunk. He did it 21 times in Creighton's first eight games and wishes it could have been more, and not just because all those throw-downs propped up his field-goal shooting to 80 percent, second in the nation.
Mike Zimmer's eye doctor asked the Vikings medical staff to try and persuade Zimmer to coach from the safety of the booth but gave Zimmer the option of being on the field. He opted for the latter.
Second-year safety Anthony Harris was perfect during Friday's test of the Vikings game plan and the Jaguars offense.
Eric Bledsoe had 30 points and nine assists, Leandro Barbosa added 21 points and the Phoenix Suns snapped their three-game losing streak with a 119-115 victory over the slumping Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.
