    Rozner: Bryant decision easy to understand
    It is long past laughable now that some Cubs fans and media can't fathom Theo Epstein's decision on Kris Bryant. It is inexplicable, indescribable and indefensible, unless your name is Scott Boras, and he is only doing what any good agent would.

    DuPage County prosecutors probing College of DuPage, charges appear unlikely

    DuPage County prosecutors probing College of DuPage, charges appear unlikely
    An investigation by the DuPage County state's attorney's office into spending at the College of DuPage is unlikely to result in any criminal charges, according to sources with knowledge of the probe. But critics of the community college's administration are questioning the objectivity of the state's attorney's investigation and already are calling for an independent probe to be done by federal authorities. Grand jury subpoenas for financial records were issued about two weeks ago to both the Glen Ellyn-based college and its fundraising arm, the College of DuPage Foundation, sources said.

    Hawks take pleasure in dropping Kings

    Hawks take pleasure in dropping Kings
    Maybe it was just the sight of the Los Angeles Kings back on the United Center's ice Monday night that flipped the Blackhawks' internal switch. Maybe it jogged the Hawks' collective memory and conjured up the old sting of an overtime loss here in Game 7 of the 2014 Western Conference finals last June. Or, maybe it was just time for the Hawks to finally overmatch a desperate opponent fighting for its playoff life.News: Whatever the reason, the Blackhawks looked like themselves again Monday night for the first time in months, defeating the Kings 4-1 to sweep a tough set of back-to-back games after winning Sunday in Winnipeg.

    Carmel rises up, stops Lakes

    Carmel rises up, stops Lakes
    Granted, basketball season is finished. But this Carmel boys volleyball squad is not tall, not even in the world of boys volleyball. On Monday night, the Corsairs, playing their first volleyball match of the season, surrendered handily in the height department to visiting Lakes and 6-foot-3 Avery Brodde and Colton Jewell and 6-6 Dalton Sobrig. As it turns out, maybe height isn't everything in boys volleyball. You see, even at 6-1, Carmel's junior, Michael May, can hit the volleyball very hard. "He was a baseball player,'' said Carmel coach Kevin Nylen. "He didn't play volleyball as a freshman. But he came to tryouts last year and we picked him up within a day." May had 9 kills in a match with plenty of errors. However, Carmel eventually made opening night a good one for the home team. Carmel stopped the Eagles 25-22, 25-21.

    August Wilson's 'Two Trains Running' triumphs at Goodman Theatre

    August Wilson's 'Two Trains Running' triumphs at Goodman Theatre
    Reviewing Goodman Theatre's revival of August Wilson's "Two Trains Running" posed a challenge. Much of it had to do with finding superlatives that adequately described director Chuck Smith's exceptional production. The centerpiece of a citywide celebration of the late playwright curated by the Goodman -- the only theater to have produced all 10 plays in Wilson's masterful 20th Century Cycle chronicling the African-American experience in America -- it is a funny, warm-hearted, superbly acted production I expect will rank high on theatergoers "best of" lists.

    Pitching backward helped Ryan Sargent and the Jacobs baseball team earn a straightforward 4-1 nonconference win at Palatine on Monday. The senior right-hander's game plan was to undermine the Pirates by throwing curveballs in fastball counts, a strategy he was able to execute from the start after coming out of the bullpen with excellent command of his breaking ball. Sargent (2-0) threw 91 pitches in 6 innings, allowed 1 unearned run on 3 hits, walked 2 and struck out 6.
