In case you missed them, here are some teachable moments from the past seven days:
▪ Republic FC had to stop its losing streak sometime, so it may as well have been against one of the hottest teams in the USL – and its chief rival.
▪ The Cavaliers didn’t stick a fork in the Hawks, they stuck a threek.
▪ It probably makes more sense for NBA coaches to rent rather than buy.
▪ The Nationals’ Bryce Harper had a much easier time getting on base than the Yankees did Sunday.
