ABA Jacksonville Giants Basketball – Jacksonville’s only professional basketball team left by charter bus this morning to travel to Chicago, Illinois. They will be competing in the ABA Final 8 tournament and hope to beat the Chicago Steam to move on to the Final Four to be held in St. Petersburg, Florida, in April.
You Should Know – At the NFL owners’ meetings in Palm Beach, Florida, much is getting accomplished. The owners, by a vote of 30-2, approved the playoff overtime rule for the regular season. “All games that go to overtime now can’t end on a field goal on the first possession.” The opposing team must then receive one series. If another field goal is kicked, the overtime continues. Owners also will allow the replay official to review turnovers just like he does for all scoring plays.
