Evan Longoria is not going to be using an assault rifle any time soon. It's not because he's against the idea, though. It's because his was stolen.

Yes, the word on the street is that Longoria's personal AK-47 was stolen from a rental home in Port Charlotte, Florida that he shares with Tampa Bay Rays teammates David Price and Reid Brignac. In addition to Longo's AK, which is supposedly "perfectly legal," the robbers also made off with about $56,000 worth of stuff.

Elsewhere in today's sports headlines, Shaka Smart and his VCU Rams are just a day removed from their shocking upset of Kansas that put them in the Final Four, and the perks are starting to materialize. One of them involves a certain honor extended to Smart from the Chicago Cubs, one that apparently has a pretty significant appeal to the 33-year-old head coach.

The UConn Huskies are also awaiting the Final Four, and it goes without saying that they wouldn't have been able to get there without Kemba Walker. The team has been on Walker's back for a while now, and he has been piling up the accolades along the way. Today, Walker was named a first-team AP All-American, more or less cementing his status as one of the best players in the country.

There's plenty more where this came from. To stay up to date on all the latest sports news, all you have to do is keep it here and let me keep you posted.
