larry: jordan poole has turned into such a dynamic player. when the playoffs begin in a few weeks, steve kerr pretty much has to put him in the starting lineup. what was a one-man gang last night in the warriors upset of the heat in miami. this is the same guy the warriors sent to the g league
6:53 pm
last season because he needed to work on his game. poole came back with a lot more confidence. he has taken it up several notches from there. he has got not a rational confidence, like steph and klay, believing every shot he takes will go in. the entire league is taking notice. >> he was really, really amazing. but he's been amazing for a while now. he has come into his own. >> jordan was huge this came. -- this game. he was attacking, making plays. >>j.p. works on every facet of his game. he's not just a point guard or shooting guard, he can do it all. his decision-making has been getting better and better. larry: no question. the defending national champion stafford women's basketball team getting set for a sweet sixteen matchup against maryland

6:55 pm
on the all army team. they practiced out of the presidio. this time around duke practiced out of the university of san francisco and it brought back some memories. >> this area loves basketball. and not just the warriors, it's deep-rooted. i love this area. it really is part of the foundation of me becoming a coach. larry: spring training is hosting the rangers in mesa. sean manaea still here, at least for now. and if he's around on opening day, he'll be the starter. struck out nick select -- nick solak. and help from a new outfielder with the diving catch at chapter. sheldon neuse making some noise. but the a's would lose to texas 5-. the giant3 -- texas 5-3. the giants beat the white sox.

i am so happy for eric musselman. he was the coach of the warriors in 2002. it did not go great. [laughter] and now he's at arkansas. our good friend said back in the day, eric musselman, when you would listen to him you would think, did this guy just drink 20 coffees and 20 red bulls before he came in here? he has that much energy. it is clear his team from arkansas channels his inner spirit. they are onto the elite eight. dan: thanks, larry. ama: coming up tonight on abc7 at 8:00, station 19 followed by grey's anatomy, big sky at 10:00 and follow us for abc7 news at 11:00. thank you so much for joining us. dan: for all of us here, we appreciate your time. have a great evening and we will see you again for abc7 news at 11:00.
