The Report Card
For whatever reason, I got more feedback than usual on my recent Pittsburgh/Duke Thoughts Dribble, so I figured I'd fire it up once again for Memphis/Georgetown. So without further ado, here are some scatter-brained thoughts on the game:
#2 Memphis 85 - #4 Georgetown 71
- Someone wake up Roy Hibbert. Granted, the game was early and Hibbert isn't exactly the Energizer bunny, but he's got to get himself going for such a big game. From about the 5th to the 35th minute, Hibbert spent the game moping around with his shoulders shrugged
Last night was one of the best night's of the college basketball season.. hopefully setting up what should be an even more exciting weekend. Here are a bunch of scatter-brained thoughts on the biggest game of all, Duke/Pittsburgh:
Pittsburgh 65 - Duke 64 (OT)
- Well, Pitt shut me up pretty good. I really didn't give the Panthers much of a chance before the game, and even less of a chance 15 minutes into the game. But I can't quibble about their schedule anymore, this is simply a great win.
Today's column is the first in a Surprise Teams series, in which I list a surprise team from each conference. Some, like Texas are, are positive surprises, while others, like Louisville, have been disappointing..
Here is everything you need to know about last night's college basketball action. Well, at least here's 10 things you need to know:
1. Duke can score points. They finished with 111 against Albany, shot 60% from the floor and 58% from three. Granted, at 5-5, Albany's not a powerhouse right now, but they also hadn't loss by more than 9 before last night. 41 was the final damage though.
2. Taylor King should have his own special three-point line 24 inches beyond the regular arc. It wouldn't deter him from shooting anyways.. and it would add a bit of intrigue to Duke games.
