    Before Marshawn Lynch broke out another infamous "Beast Mode" touchdown on Sunday, he was dealing with an upset stomach bad enough that he didn't start the game against Arizona. When Twitter found out that Lynch was battling illness, his long-standing love affair with Skittles was instantly the topic of every joke imaginable. Some blamed the consumption of too many Skittles. Others claimed the cure would be eating more Skittles. Either way, the obvious joke was obvious, and everyone piled on. As pointed out by For The Win, the reaction was prompt and sweeping. It's not that the jokes were necessarily bad, just that they were a little too predictable. We enjoyed them anyway.

    Derrick Jones just threw down the best dunk of the (young) 2014-15 high school basketball season.

    Jones is a 6-foot-6, 180-pound small forward playing for Archbishop John Carroll (Pa.) High School.

    He pulled off that amazing dunk in the 42nd annual City of Palms Basketball Classic, as his team took on Sierra Canyon (Calif.). High School. SCHS came away with the 59-55 win.

    Jones is  currently  ranked No. 42  in the Top 100. The senior is committed to play at UNLV next year.

  • H.S. basketball player hits two buzzer-beaters in same game

    If the game's going down to the wire, you want Ryan Sturdivan on your team. The Woodland (Wash.) High School senior sunk a 45-foot shot at the buzzer to give his team the 49-47 win on Monday night. The win helped Woodland stay undefeated, improving to 6-0 on the season.

    Woodland had trailed by nine just minutes earlier. He played down the rally-capping shot in a postgame interview with The Daily News.

    “Please don’t make it sound like I did it all myself,” said the guard. “My teammates played great defense, they got me the ball in spots where I like to shoot... none of us gave up when it looked bad. All I did was make a lucky shot.”

    Lucky, for most. But Sturdivan seems to have a rare talent for the shot. That was, after all, his second of the game.

    He also hit a shot from behind the mid-court line as time ran out in the first half. That shot brought Woodland within one point of Kelso High School, as the Beavers went into the locker room trailing 19-18.
