The Hornets looked to end a four-game losing streak when they hosted Denver on Friday night. Montrose Christian’s Greivis Vasquez came off the bench to lead his team in scoring (16 points) and had four rebounds and four assists, but New Orleans lost 96-88.

Former Georgetown Prep star Roy Hibbert led all scorers with 20 points on 10 of 16 shooting (62.5 percent) in Indiana’s dominant 99-77 victory over Charlotte on Saturday night. Hibbert also managed to pull out eight rebounds and three blocks for the Pacers.

Eleanor Roosevelt’s Delonte West was a solid contributor for the Dallas Mavericks against the struggling Hornets on Saturday. West had twelve points, four assists, two rebounds, and two steals, helping the Mavericks extend their home winning streak to four games and beating New Orleans 96-81.

Tebow-mania has been sweeping the nation this NFL season, and one local athlete has helped make it possible. Former Westfield receiver Eddie Royal caught one of Tebow’s two touchdown passes en route to a 2 9-23 overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the opening round of the NFL playoffs on Sunday. Tebow completed a total of 10 passes; three of them went to Royal for a total of 49 yards.
