Opioid Overdoses Up 30 Percent Last Year: CDC
While overdoses increased across the country, some regions were hit harder than others. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report released Tuesday.

Jontay Porter led Missouri (20-12) with 20 points and eight rebounds. Porter would've had them in a different stratosphere most likely, but seniors Kassius Robertson and Jordan Barnett have done an outstanding job carrying the team. While at the University of Iowa, she scored more than 1,300 points, led the Hawkeyes to their first Big Ten conference championship, and connected on a school-record 58.4% of her shots as a college freshman. Georgia was also making everything-how do you lock down on defenses when virtually every defender who might go to battle underneath with Georgia star and SEC Player of the Year Yante Maten?

Outside of a straight-away three from Porter with a minute left though, the Tigers didn't score again in the final 3:57. Georgia answered with a 19-2 run. During the 1982-83 season, she averaged 58.7 points per game.

It was a win paved by shooting woes for the Wildcats and by one of the best all-around second halves of the season for the Tigers.

East St. Louis native Jeremiah Tilmon brought the crowd to its feet with a tip-slam with just under 18 minutes to go in the game.

SpaceX rocket carries Spanish satellite to orbit
In a statement Monday, the Spanish company said its satellite would be tested for a week after it reaches its geostationary orbit. SpaceX rescheduled today's mission from February 24 to correct a problem with the Falcon 9's fairing pressurization system .

Some close to the program were surprised he didn't play on Tuesday against Vanderbilt, because he's looked good in practices and expressed eagerness to compete. However, Georgia followed MU's run with a 8-0 run of its own.
