Memphis vs. Tennessee among several men’s basketball games called off because of COVID-19 issues – ESPN

The men’s college basketball game between Memphis and No. 18 Tennessee scheduled for Saturday has been postponed because of COVID-19 protocols within the Tigers’ program.

The game was canceled about an hour before tipoff. The Volunteers had warmed up and were ready to play when the game was called off at 9:54 a.m. with several hundred fans already in attendance. Tipoff had been scheduled for 11 a.m. CT. Memphis players did not enter the arena. It was not clear exactly how many players were in the COVID-19 protocols.

The game was to be played in Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, a midway point between the two programs’ campuses.

Tennessee Coach Rick Barnes decided to hold an intrasquad scrimmage for Vols fans in attendance.

It was one of a handful of games called off Saturday for coronavirus-related reasons. Rutgers’ game against Rider was postponed, and Northeastern’s game vs. Vermont was canceled.

Temple’s matchup with Drexel was postponed just over an hour before tipoff due to COVID issues within the Dragons’ program.

The schools will look to reschedule the game at a later date.

On Friday, Syracuse announced it was canceling games Saturday against Lehigh and Tuesday against Cornell, while No. 23 Colorado State canceled a game Saturday against Tulsa at the Hoops Hype XL Collegiate Basketball Showcase in Fort Worth, Texas, and later pulled out of a game Tuesday night against No. 6 Alabama in the C.M. Newton Classic in Birmingham.

More than 20 men’s basketball games and 36 women’s basketball games have been canceled or postponed this season because of COVID-19 protocols.

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake: health upgrade locations – Digital Trends

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake has a handful of tricky segments throughout its surprisingly lengthy campaign, but it isn’t a game that most would deem to be overwhelmingly challenging. As such, the titular hero’s four underpants – the game’s version of hit points – are usually plenty to get most players through the adventure, especially considering how frequent health refills are across levels. But if you’re looking to add some additional pairs of underoos to your health pool, you won’t want to miss the game’s couple of hidden health upgrades (golden underpants).

Phil Spencer says ‘2022 was too light on games’ – PC Gamer

In 2021, Microsoft’s gaming division published games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Age of Empires 4, and Psychonauts 2. It was declared Metacritic’s publisher of the year (opens in new tab) thanks to its games receiving an average metascore of 87.4, helped also to the Xbox Series X port of Microsoft Flight Simulator releasing that year. While in 2022 Microsoft backed some well-received smaller games—Grounded, Pentiment, and As Dusk Falls—its biggest releases, Starfield and Redfall, were delayed into this year.
