Chrislyn Carr scored 11 of her 17 points in the third quarter to propel Louisville to a 62-55 upset of No. 11 North Carolina, ending the Tar Heels’ eight-game winning streak. Hailey Van Lith also had 17 points for the Cardinals. Deja Kelly scored 13 points for the Tar Heels (17-6, 8-4) and Paulina Paris added 12 points. Paris hit North Carolina’s only 3-pointer with 6:10 to play to cut the deficit to 51-50 but Carr hit her fifth 3-pointer and North Carolina struggled to find the basket. The Tar Heels missed their next four shots, finished 5 of 14 for the quarter and 33% (19 of 57) for the game, missing 11 3-pointers. The Cardinals only shot 34% (19 of 56) but eight makes were behind the arc.
Harry Kane broke Tottenham’s all-time scoring record with his 267th goal for the club that will have been celebrated almost as jubilantly by the other team in north London. The England captain’s milestone strike earned Tottenham a 1-0 win over Manchester City, which was looking for a victory to trim the gap to Premier League leader Arsenal to two points. Arsenal wasn’t punished for losing 1-0 at Everton on Saturday and maybe that’s no surprise. City now hasn’t won or even scored in five games at Tottenham’s new stadium in either the Premier League or the Champions League. City stayed five points behind Arsenal, which has a game in hand.
Caitlin Clark had 23 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds to lead No. 6 Iowa over Penn State 95-51. Monika Czinano scored 14 points and Kate Martin added 11 for the Hawkeyes.

Taniyah Thompson led Penn State with 11 points while Leilani Kapinus had 10.
Harry Kane has become Tottenham’s outright all-time leading scorer with his goal in the 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Premier League. It was the England captain’s 267th goal for the club. That is one more than the late Jimmy Greaves, who played for Tottenham from 1961-70. Kane scored his first goal for Tottenham in December 2011. He now has 200 goals in the Premier League. He is only the third player to reach that figure after Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.
Harry Kane’s record-breaking goal pushed Tottenham to a 1-0 win over Manchester City to further dent the champions’ hopes of retaining the Premier League title. Kane slotted home after 15 minutes and moved past the late Jimmy Greaves as Spurs’ all-time leading scorer on 267 goals. It proved enough to keep up Tottenham’s excellent recent home record against City, which could have moved two points behind first-place Arsenal following its defeat at Everton on Saturday. Fifth-place Spurs instead claimed a third victory from their last four matches against Pep Guardiola’s team despite Cristian Romero’s late sending-off for a second yellow card.
Bayern Munich held on despite Joshua Kimmich’s sending off to beat Wolfsburg 4-2 and return to the top of the Bundesliga. Kimmich was sent off with his second yellow card in the 54th but Wolfsburg was unable to make its dominance count as the visitors delivered a lesson in efficiency. Kingsley Coman scored twice and Thomas Müller and Jamal Musiala added two more while Bayern also needed goalkeeper Yann Sommer at his best to secure the team’s first Bundesliga win of the year. It was enough for Bayern to move one point clear of Union Berlin. Wolfsburg had 22 shots at goal compared to the 10-time defending champions’ nine.
Monaco has extended its unbeaten run to seven matches with a 2-0 win at Clermont and moved two points behind third-place Lens. Lens managed only a 1-1 draw at Brest. Defender Jonathan Gradit equalized from close range in the 83rd minute for Lens after Brest goalkeeper Marco Bizot miskicked the ball following a corner. Third place secures a place in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League next season. Second-place Marseille needs to win at home to Nice later Sunday to stay five points behind PSG.
France has put down a daring Italy 29-24 in Rome and played its part in setting the stage for the eagerly awaited Six Nations showdown with Ireland next weekend. The French, ranked No. 2 in the world, will be defending the title against the Irish, ranked No. 1, and the nominal title favorite. France hasn’t lost since 2021 and Ireland hasn’t lost at home since 2021, when France last visited Dublin. But to extend its winning streak to 14 tests, France had to overcome an unexpectedly serious scare from Italy. Italy fought back from 19-6 down to lead for the first time in the match at 24-22 with less than a quarter to go. But fresh reinforcements helped France score a bonus-point fourth try and hold on.
