Nov. 22, 1987: For the second straight year, the Loyola College men’s soccer team upsets Virginia, 1-0, in the NCAA Division I tournament. Joe Barger scores for the Greyhounds (17-3-2), who advance to the quarterfinals, where they’ll lose to North Carolina.
Nov. 24, 1971: In his first appearance at the Civic Center since his trade to the New York Knicks two weeks earlier, Earl Monroe is booed derisively by Bullets fans. Monroe, who’d demanded to be traded, pumps his fist in the air and scores 12 points in a 114-94 NBA win over Baltimore before an announced 10,718.
They deserve a nice bump for their trade for Trent Richardson alone, but how about that win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday? This team -- not the Houston Texans -- are officially the one to beat in the AFC South.
