(1:50) When Ja Morant sprained his left ankle against the Brooklyn Nets back on Dec. 28, he nearly willed himself back onto the court -- despite suffering a grade 2 sprain that caused him to be ruled out for the next 3-to-5 weeks. So it came as little surprise to Morant, or anyone else in Memphis, that

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is one of the leaders of Trump's fight to overturn the election. Cruz ran for president in 2016. In the primaries, he placed first in the Iowa caucuses. Donald Trump was second. After the caucuses were over, Trump tweeted, "Based on the fraud during the Iowa caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified. Ted Cruz didn't win this election, he stole it." So, Senator Cruz, is Trump's claim of a stolen election in 2016 correct also? Jerry Parks, Burlington

That role was instead thrust upon him six weeks earlier, when the graduate transfer was forced to fill in for an injured Ethan Anderson, dutifully stepping into the position of ball-handling, floor-spacing creator, a role
