Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

WEST PALM BEACH (WPEC) -  Today we had another great example of our local professional athletes continuing to give back to the community.

75 kids from Butler family large day care in Pahokee were invited to Wal-Mart in West Palm Beach for the Anquan Boldin Foundation's holiday shopping event.

The kids, aged 3-12 were given a 100 dollar gift card from Boldin, the former Pahokee star wide receiver who now plays for the Baltimore Ravens. Anquan's mother says her son just loves giving back.Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

UNDATED (AP) -- The NFL has a rare two-game schedule for Monday night football tonight.

The Ravens-Saints game in New Orleans was scheduled, but the Bills-Jets game is a late addition.

The later game had to be moved from Buffalo to Detroit after areas of western New York were buried under up to seven feet of snow last week. It's a home game for the 5-5 Bills without the home field advantage. The 2-8 Jets catch a break because they won't have to deal with the raucous Buffalo crowd. The tickets for the game were free and Bills president Russ Brandon says he heard 67,000 had been distributed.

The Bills won the first meeting of the season with the Jets 43-23.

The Ravens head to the Big Easy needing a win to keep pace in the tight AFC North. All four teams in the division have a .600 winning percentage or better. The Ravens bring with them long-time Saints nemesis Steve Smith who used to face New Orleans twice a year when he was with Carolina. Smith has caught 10 touchdown passes against New Orleans to go along with 99 receptions and 1,493 yards.

The Saints head into the game with a 4-6 record, which is good for first in the NFC South. They've lost two in a row.


UNDATED (AP) -- Portland takes a seven-game winning streak into tonight's game at Philadelphia. The Sixers haven't won all season. The mismatch is part of a seven-game schedule in the NBA tonight.

The Trail Blazers have won nine of their last 10 to lead the Northwest Division.

The Sixers 0-13 start makes them the first team to open a season with 13 losses since the 2009-10 Nets who lost 18 in a row for the worst start to a season in NBA history. The Sixers are nearing their franchise-worst start of 0-15 in 1972-73.

Toronto tries to keep pace with Memphis for the best record in the NBA when the Raptors host Phoenix.

Toronto is 11-2 for the best start to the season in franchise history. A win tonight ties the Raptors with the Grizzlies for the best record in the league. Toronto's 8-1 home record is tops in the Eastern Conference.

Like Toronto, the Suns are riding a four-game winning streak heading into the game.


UNDATED (AP) -- It's a busy night in top 25 college basketball with eight games on the schedule including a meeting of unbeaten, ranked teams.

No. 12 Villanova takes on 15th-ranked VCU in a battle of 3-0 teams at the Legends Classic in Brooklyn. The Wildcats had to work harder than expected to beat Bucknell by seven in their last game.

Second-ranked Arizona takes its 3-0 record west to take on Missouri in the Maui Invitational. The Tigers have seven new players on the roster including five freshman.

That's also where 16th-ranked San Diego State puts its 3-0 mark on the line against BYU. The Aztecs are allowing just 57 points per game, second best in the country. BYU boasts one of the nation's best pure shooter in Tyler Haws who shots 38 percent from 3-point range.


UNDATED (AP) -- After two wins in as many nights against Pittsburgh over the weekend, pulled the Islanders into a first place tie with the Penguins in the Metropolitan Division, the two teams are in action tonight.

The Islanders host Philadelphia having won eight of their last nine games. At 14-6, the Islanders are off to their best start to a season since 1987-88.

Even though the Penguins are tied with the Islanders for first, they've played one fewer game. Before being swept by New York over the weekend, Pittsburgh had won three in a row. They try to get back on track when they visit the Bruins tonight. Boston's only given up six goals in its last four games, including three wins.

There are four games on the NHL schedule.
