No Winners in $524 Million Powerball Jackpot


(ABC) No one had the winning numbers for the estimated $524 million Powerball jackpot -- 47, 2, 63, 62, 11 and the Powerball of 17 -- which means Saturday's jackpot will be an estimated $675 million, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The previous largest was a Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million in 2012.

 

The prize surged from $450 million to $524 million Wednesday night, making it the fourth largest Powerball jackpot of all time.

 

The payout would have had an estimated cash value of more than $300 million, before taxes, according to the Powerball website. The final take-home amount depends on an individual's tax rate and the state and local taxes in their state of residence, Tracey Cohen, the interim executive director of the D.C. Lottery, told ABC News.


Is Calvin Johnson going to retire?


(NFL) Calvin Johnson might have played his last NFL snap.

The Detroit Lions' receiver released a statement Wednesday stating that he's calculating his future.

 

"Like many players at this stage of their career, I am currently evaluating options for my future," Johnson said. "I would expect to have a decision regarding this matter in the not-too-distant future."

 

The statement came minutes after speculation swirled around Megatron's future.The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett cited and unnamed former teammate who believes Johnson could walk away from football after nine seasons.

 

Longtime Detroit media personality Terry Foster penned a column on Tuesday suggesting Megatron could retire early. Foster noted that Megatron kept the ball after his final touchdown grab in Week 17 against the Chicago Bears -- Johnson's 83rd career score, which seemed to have little other significance.


 


Spartans move down to #5 in the AP Poll


(LSJ) The Michigan State men's basketball team has dropped from No. 1 to No. 5 in the Associated Press and USA TODAY coaches polls today, after losing for the first time last week, 83-70 at Iowa.

A few moments before the AP poll came out today, Izzo was asked whether he was relieved at all about not being No. 1 at this point in the season.

"To hell with being the underdog," Izzo said. "No, I'm really not."

 

MSU (14-1, 1-1) likely will play its fourth straight game without leading scorer, rebounder and assist man Denzel Valentine on Thursday at home against Illinois (9 p.m., ESPN). Valentine (knee) could return Sunday at Penn State.

 

Kansas and Oklahoma moved to the top two spots in the AP poll, and the Big 12 schools will meet tonight.
