SPORTLIGHT

March 27

1939–Oregon beats Ohio State 46-33 in the NCAA's first national basketball tournament.

1978–Jack Givens scores 41 points to lead Kentucky to a 94-88 victory over Duke for the NCAA basketball title.

1983–Larry Holmes wins a unanimous 12-round decision over Lucien Rodriguez to retain his world heavyweight title in his hometown of Scranton, Pa.

1998–Michael Jordan scores 34 points to lead the Chicago Bulls to an 89-74 victory over the Atlanta Hawks before 62,046 at the Georgia Dome–the largest crowd in NBA history.

2005–In the NCAA men's basketball regional finals, Michigan State makes the most of its second overtime against Kentucky, pulling away 94-88. This is the first time in tournament history that three regional finals go to overtime. North Carolina beats Wisconsin 88-82 in regulation.

2005–Annika Sorenstam shoots a final-round 68 to finish at 15-under to win the Nabisco Championship by eight shots over Rosie Jones. It's Sorenstam's fifth win in a row over two seasons, tying a record set by Nancy Lopez in 1978. It's also the 59th of the Swedish star's LPGA Tour career–and her eighth major championship win.

2007–Dallas beats New Orleans 105-89 for its 21st straight victory over the Hornets. The Hornets losing streak is the longest losing streak for one team against an opponent in the NBA, NFL, NHL or Major League Baseball. The Mavericks last loss in the series was Nov. 17, 1999, in Charlotte.
