Sports Picks of the Week 5/10-5/17

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor This week, both WA and national sports have some great games to watch. Here are my picks of the week. National – NHL Playoffs. In the last few weeks, I have cited the NBA playoffs as my pick of the week, but since I already made my NBA picks, I decided to feature the NHL’s conference finals. With the Eastern conference final already set, I look out west to see a series that needs to close out. The Canucks took care of Nashville, and even though the Detroit Red Wings have the ability to come…

The second round tips off this week for the NBA playoffs, and there are some great matchups to see.

First there is the top seeded Bulls taking on the Atlanta Hawks. However, the…

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor This week, both national and WA have great games to watch. Here are my picks of the week. National – NBA Playoffs. The playoffs roll on for the NBA as the first round matchups should finish up this week. The C’s looked impressive in their sweep of the Knicks, looking especially strong in their two road games. Even though the Heat stumbled to fall to 3-1 in the series, I expect them to move on past the Pacers. To close out who I have through to the next round, I would take the Bulls, Hawks,…

Sports Picks of the Week 4/5-4/12

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor This week, both national and WA sports have some great games to see. Here are my picks of the week. National – NBA Playoff Race. While this is not an individual game to watch, sports fans should surely be viewing many different NBA games this week, as teams have only a few games left in which to either prove their playoff worth, or increase their seeding. Of course, the Celtics have quite a bit to play for. Despite holding a solid lead over Miami for most of the season, the Heat have snuck up behind…

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor This week, both national and WA sports have some great games to see. Here are my picks of the week. National – The Final Four. The decision for what to pick as the national games to watch was tough this week, with Opening Day baseball competing with the Final Four. However, the Final Four represents the culmination of one of the best tournaments in the world, and I had to side with NCAA basketball. It has been one hectic tourney with upsets galore. Some readers may remember me picking the Ohio State Buckeyes to win…

Sports Picks of the Week 2/15-2/22

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor National – Red Sox Spring Training. While this may not be a game to watch, fans should start to get excited for baseball season. Spring training should be interesting to watch to see how Crawford and Gonzalez look in these pre-season warm-ups. The team must begin to mesh early in order to have good chemistry that has become expected from Sox fans ever since the 2004 World Series. Another interesting thing to watch will be the health of Josh Beckett, as well as the entire pitching staff. The Sox have a solid rotation with Lester,…

By Sameer Kini Sports Editor This week, both national and WA sports have important games to watch. Here are my picks to see for this week. (Inter)National – Austalian Open. This week for my “national” pick I decided to go international instead, as the finals of the tennis season’s first major will be this weekend. So far the tournament has been a good one, with many new young players emerging, especially on the men’s side. However, the major storyline coming into to the tournament was Rafael Nadal’s attempt to achieve what is being called the “Rafa Slam.” If Nadal is…
