    The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association has announced plans for the spring season if schools open back up  
    Governor Steve Sisolak has indicated that schools will not re-open prior to Thursday, April 16.
    The NIAA staff has been putting together contingency plans based on schools opening with extracurricular activities on that day.
    Should schools open and after school activities be permitted on April 16, the plan, currently, is to begin interscholastic competition on Wednesday, April 22.

    The most famous timeout called in the history of the NCAA Tournament has been variously called the biggest mistake, the biggest choke, the most embarrassing gaffe, all because that timeout didn’t actually exist.
    Eric Montross calls it a perfectly executed defensive strategy.

    Besides the draft, the other big event on April’s NFL calendar is the release of the regular-season schedule. 
    Teams have known their opponents since late December, but Howard Katz and his scheduling department continue to parse through over 50,000 scenarios pumped out by nearly 1,500 computers across the world.
    Now that most of the significant free agency moves have taken place, here are some AP projections (suggestions?) on how we see some of the significant scheduling questions being answered:

    The Humboldt County Rodeo Club was in Fernley on March 14-15 for its next round on the schedule.
    Cade Bell finished second in each performance of the tie-down roping, which was good enough to give him the average title. He had a time of 16.620 seconds in the first go-around and 15.690 in the second for a total of 32.310. He won the average by three seconds.
    Bell and his team roping partner Jayce Blake were fourth in the average in team roping. They won the first go-around of the performance with a time of 8.08. They stopped the clock at 19.110 in the second go-around.

    It turns out Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend didn’t do anything wrong when they were trying to help coronavirus victims and their families.
    What sounded like a noble effort but might have been an NCAA violation is OK after all.

    Sabrina Ionescu capped off a unprecedented college career by entering an exclusive club.
    Oregon’s star guard was a unanimous choice Monday as The Associated Press women’s basketball player of the year, receiving all 30 votes from the national media panel that selects the Top 25 each week during the season.
  • Lovelock’s school sports on hold
    Thursday, March 26, 2020 1:00 AM
    The spring season came to a sudden halt when the NIAA announced no more games. 
    The Mustangs had time to squeeze in one last weekend of softball, baseball and track. Then it was over — for how long is anyone’s guess.
    More upheaval followed. On Sunday, Mar. 15, the governor closed all K-12 schools in Nevada, to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. 
    Fragile support systems crumbled. In a flash, life handed the kids a new game plan, diametrically opposed to their old one. Welcome to the spring of social distancing. Later, Governor Sisolak extended the shutdown to at least April 16.

    On March 13, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association sent a memo announcing the suspension of all NIAA sanctioned sports until further notice beginning, Monday, March 16.
  • ‘Rebel with a Cause’ book: Tark’s climb to basketball’s pinnacle was slow and steady; his downfall at UNLV was swift and sad
    Wednesday, March 25, 2020 1:00 AM
    The fall of legendary UNLV basketball Coach Jerry Tarkanian 30 years ago was swift and absolute, with enough political intrigue to rival the court of a Russian czar.
    Yet the underhanded tactics used to oust him opened wounds on the soul and spirit of Las Vegas that have yet to heal.
    That’s my opinion after reading “Rebel with a Cause,” a recently published book about the Tark’s life, written by Danny Tarkanian, Tark’s eldest son and staunchest defender.
  • Gymkhana Club suspends 2020 season due to coronavirus
    Tuesday, March 24, 2020 1:00 AM
    On Friday, March 20, the last cowboy boot dropped. The Northern Nevada Gymkhana Club held out as long as it could before becoming Pershing County’s last coronavirus-related sports casualty. Up until Friday, Ann-Marie Fenner hoped to meet with the horseback riders for the second gymkhana of the 2020 season. It was to meet on Saturday and Sunday.
    Fenner founded the club four years ago. The first gymkhana rolled onto the Lovelock fairgrounds on March 12, 2017. Since then, it expanded into one big family. Many of its members, perhaps most of them, got in the ground floor. Children grow visibly more confident as the years fly by like racehorses.
