Sports photos of the week, Feb. 9


Rob Gronkowski and his Patriots are among the small minority celebrating the end of football season, but fret not sports fans, there is still plenty of action to be found all over the globe.

Stateside, basketball and hockey eagerly get to take their turns in the spotlight, though Notre Dame's Steve Vasturia got a little more attention than he was looking for from Duke's Cameron Crazies.

Pablo De Blasis and Maurice Hirsch showed why the German Bundesliga is one of the most fiercely contest competitions in sports, while Ariya Jutanugarn won herself a beach-going admirer during her play at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic.

So, follow the advice of the 76ers Robert Covington, keep your eye on the ball and check out the latest batch of the best sports photos of the week.

And if you missed it, get caught up on last week's collection in the gallery below.
