The Spurs played in Berlin as part of the NBA Global Games tour that has pitched several international clubs against NBA franchises in hopes of growing the game of basketball around the world. Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, notorious for closely regulating the minutes played by his starters, was not as cautious this game.

Former Sec. of State Rice focused on CFB playoffs

Rice will not travel to her annual slew of international conferences this year to focus on a pool of 40 teams she believes have legitimate championship hopes. Rice, currently serving as a political economy professor at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, has used her background in political science to discern important championship qualifiers like strength of schedule, the weights of certain wins and losses and conference quality.
