Sunday highlights: Loyola Chicago stuns top-seeded Illinois

Highlights of the second round of the NCAA Tournament (all times Eastern): 12:30 a.m.

 

If the pregame prayer sounded more like a scouting report, it was. And if Sister Jean didn’t have any plans for next weekend, well, she does now. Loyola Chicago carried out its 101-year-old superfan's plans to a T on Sunday, moving to the Sweet 16 with a 71-58 win over Illinois, the first No. 1 seed bounced from this year's NCAA Tournament. Cameron Krutwig delivered a 19-point, 12-rebound masterpiece and the quick-handed, eighth-seeded Ramblers (26-4) led wire to wire. The team with the nation's leading defense befuddled powerful Illinois to return to the second weekend three years after its last magical run to the Final Four.

House approves President Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill

WASHINGTON —

A Congress riven along party lines approved a landmark $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill Wednesday, as President Joe Biden and Democrats claimed a triumph on a bill that marshals the government’s spending might against twin pandemic and economic crises that have upended a nation. The House gave final congressional approval to the sweeping package by a near party line 220-211 vote precisely seven weeks after Biden entered the White House and four days after the Senate passed the bill without a single Republican vote. GOP lawmakers opposed the package as bloated, crammed with liberal policies and heedless of signs the crises are easing.

Meghan and Harry discuss anguish during life in royal family

By JILL LAWLESS and DANICA KIRKA Associated Press


Britain and its royal family absorbed the tremors Monday from a sensational television interview with Prince Harry and Meghan, in which the couple said they encountered racist attitudes and a lack of support that drove the duchess to thoughts of suicide. In a two-hour soul-baring interview by Oprah Winfrey, the couple painted a deeply unflattering picture of life inside the royal household, depicting a cold, uncaring institution that they had to flee to save their lives.

36 inspiring women who changed the world

Women's History Month comes and goes every March, but what's lasting is our support for women 365 days of the year. While the annual celebration gives us a chance to amplify the work and achievements of phenomenal women (both well-known and those who keep us going in our personal lives), it's also important to remember to honor female role models everyday—no matter the time of year. Looking back to history's heroines is one way to do so, as we reflect on the milestones of names like Wilma Mankiller, Florence Griffith Joyner, and Marie Curie, who were responsible for so many women's firsts. We also salute the lesser-known titans of entertainment, science, sports, politics, and beyond, whose impact can still be felt today lesser-known titans of entertainment, science, sports, politics, and beyond, whose impact can still be felt today.
