Life in the Cheap Seats: Leave Marshawn Lynch alone

Marshawn Lynch is a great NFL running back. That cannot be debated based on statistics. However, lately, the en vogue thing for the media to do is to bash him for a reason that only sounds like sour grapes, and that is his refusal to really say anything to them. Read more

Boys, Girls BB Standings now available

While we are missing some games, we now have the standings for most of the teams from our area posted in high school boys and girls basketball.

If you have the finals for the below games, please e-mail us (, tweet us (@KREW_Sports on Twitter) or post it to our wall on our Facebook page (1400 the KREW).

Missing games from Jan. 23:

  • Petersburg-Whiteface boys
  • Happy-Adrian girls
  • Groom-Lefors boys and girls (to complete 2-1A standings)

Each set of standings includes items we may be missing – and in the case of the 5-1A, we really could use a lot of help, especially with the girls and the overall records for the boys.

We encourage all schools to direct us to any websites they may use (GameChanger, MaxPreps, etc.) to post information, so that we may be able to get the information we need as often as possible.

Gonzalez scores 31 as Lady Dogs handle Bushland

Jaden Gonzalez was wide awake this morning, and apparently open a lot on the basketball court, too.

The junior scored 31 points – the best individual effort by a Lady Bulldog so far this season – and Plainview girls basketball rolled to a 76-53 win over Bushland in the first game of the day at the Byron Johnson Classic at Midland.

The Lady Dogs (13-7) also had a 12-point effort out of senior guard Karli Wheeler in the victory, which gives Plainview a chance to play their way into the championship game. Their final pool-play game tonight is, for all intensive purposes, a road game, as they will play at Midland Lee against the Lady Rebels at 6 p.m.

Fans and media expected one of the worst defenses in team history. Read more
