JARED QUAY: The women's tournament took center stage on Tuesday and one Iowa freshman did not disappoint. Iowa's Caitlin Clark dropped 35 points on Kentucky, 24 of them in the first half, outscoring the Wildcats whole team by herself.

- Sick, man. Sick.

JARED QUAY: Caitlin must still be mad at the weight room the NCAA dropped on them. Yo, they got better weight setups in prison yards. Iowa is just a five seed, but with more games like this from their freshman phenom, the tourney better take notice. Another step from the Big Ten absolutely showed out at his NFL Pro day at Purdue.

Wide receiver Ronel Moriss surpassed beast mode and went full freak mode. I think that's a step up. Right? Mo ran a blazing 4.29 40 and then jumped out of the gym with that crazy 42 and 1/2 inch vertical. Dude is only 5'7", 180 pounds. And let's not forget he squatted 600 pounds as a true freshman for the Boilermakers.

- I said certified freak.

JARED QUAY: Another prospect, Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, had his pro day to day. And even though a lot of folks were thinking about him like this, Mack decided to flip the script. He said, oh, y'all thought I was like Eli Manning. Oh, no, no, no, no. Jones flashed a little bit of athleticism, running a four 4.68 40 and vertically jumping 32 inches.

- Oh, yeah. Go.

JARED QUAY: That times faster than Baker Mayfield, Pat Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Sam Darnel. We all know another guy that didn't necessarily look like Dwayne The Rock Johnson at his combine. And somehow, he became the goat.

- Ah, yes. The goat.

JARED QUAY: Staying in Tuscaloosa--

- Alabama.

JARED QUAY: But switching from football to football, Bama freshman Tanner Sanchez Corado dropped one of the best goals you'll see all year at any level, ripping a bicycle kick into the upper corner. He also plays from Mexico's under 20 national team, and is a full on bad ass. Finally, when a goalie and a bit in the Vietnamese league did this, the ref rewarded the opposing team with a penalty kick. But when the goalie saved the PK, he showed up the ref doing a full out knew slide Bruce Springsteen type thing.

Turns out the team apologized and suspended him for two games for his action. Two games for that? Yo, man, I've seen worse. I mean, let's be honest. Kyrie sits out two games just because the weather is wrong, you know. I mean, it's one thing if you did a fall out back flip and moonwalk with cleats on. Then I'd be like, yo, you probably need to take a risk, because you call it hell and you don't even do it for the next few days.
