A big game among women's basketball powerhouses, a cold reception for Cleveland in Miami, and some progress on the NFL labor front top a mixed bag night of sports action and news.
The sports world never takes a vacation. Tonight is no exception with NFL football, a college bowl doubleheader, NCAA basketball and big games in the NBA.
NFL fans got an early holiday present this weekend, as the Giants-Eagles turned into an instant classic and several other games provided instant entertainment, at least.
Two of the weekend's biggest stories will both take place at Madison Square Garden. On Friday, the Knicks will try to cool down the Heat, and on Sunday, the legendary ladies of UConn can add to their lore by tying the all-time win streak.
