    Tonight on Sports Talk with Benson we'll discuss many topics inlcuding UCLA-Gonzaga, Women's Tourney, Durant Out, After Linsanity, Vikings Add Giant, and more! Gary Bell Jr. is a quiet but key part of Gonzaga's defense. For the second year in a row, North Carolina and South Carolina meet in a Sweet 16 showdown. The Thunder announced Kevin Durant will miss the rest of the season, saying the reigning MVP needs another foot surgery. He is expected to return in the next 4-6 months. It isn't Kobe's taunts or humiliating viral videos that have made this the toughest year of Jeremy Lin's life. It's the feeling that, as hard as he tries, he just doesn't fit in. Babatunde Aiyegbusi is a 6-foot-9, 351-pounder from Poland who did not play college football, but due to his eye-popping size, speed and YouTube footage, got a contract from the Vikings anyway.

    Tonight on Sports Talk with Benson we'll discuss many topics including Power Rankings, BMOC: CFP Playoff Field, Matthews Family, Winter Meetings, In KD's Shoes, and more! The Warriors made our No. 1 spot an easy choice. But they aren't the only team that has impressed us. Did the committee pick the right teams? That's debatable. Whether it did the job it was asked to do is not. When Jake and Clay Matthews face off Monday night, the NFL's most decorated family will be on display. Which big names will find a new home as the winter meetings get started in San Diego? Walking to his Detroit-area home, Anthony Cupp had his KD shoes stolen off his feet. But on Sunday,  the 13-year-old received a new pair -- a signed pair, no less -- presented to him by Kevin Durant. Fans you too can be a part of the show if you call in at (347) 857-4527

    Tonight on Sports Talk with Benson we'll discuss many topics including Watt As Tight End, Riley To Huskers, MLB Trade Value, GameDay Kickoff, Watch Him Meow, and more! If J.J. Watt played tight end, he'd be better than Rob Gronkowski. He's just a tad busy to switch. Nebraska has hired Oregon State's Mike Riley. Florida also picked a new coach: Jim McElwain. With the winter meetings looming, Jonah Keri rolls out his annual rank of MLB's 50 most valuable assets. Six games (just six) will directly impact the playoff race, but how much chaos will really ensue? He's not drinking milk from a saucer and he's not eating mice, but Ray Kaunisto of the Kalamazoo Wings takes the "Super Troopers" cat game to lofty levels.

The Texans receiver picked up the tab this time for 11 kids, who made the most of an 80-second spree. Fans you too can be a part of the show if you call in at (347) 857-4527
