Trivia

Q:  Baltimore Ravens All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis, who announced he'll retire last week played his final home game in Sunday's 24-9 AFC Wild Card playoff win over the Colts. What are his most notable career achievements?

A: Lewis, 37, has been picked for 13 Pro Bowls and was NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003, only the sixth player to win the award multiple times. He was only the second linebacker to win the Super Bowl MVP award (2001) and the first linebacker to win it on the Super Bowl champion team. He's also been the last active player from the Ravens' inaugural season (1996) since Jonathan Ogden retired (2007).


Today in … 

1982 – In a foul-plagued basketball game, the West Coast Christian College Knights outlast the University of California at Santa Cruz Sea Lions 75-67. Because of injuries, the Knights suit up only eight players. Midway through the second half, a total of four Knights have reached the five foul limit, forcing WCCC to play with four. Leading 70-57 with 2:10 left, the Knights are down to one player, guard Mike Lockhart, who has collected four fouls himself. Lockhart weaves around Cal-Santa Cruz, drawing fouls. He sinks six free throws down the stretch. Despite a four-man advantage, Santa Cruz outscores West Coast Christian only 10-5 in the final two minutes.
