CHATTANOOGA – Winning is not usual territory for Chattanooga, since they have a better than .800 winning percentage over the years in the annual Dr. Pepper Classic, but winning by 24 points is a little unusual as the Mocs beat up on Murray State 74-50.
To understand the total destruction that took place here in the second game of the night it would be appropriate to whip out some stats.
In a battle of USCs, South Carolina got the best of Southern California in overtime last night. The Gamecocks got a Jason Kidd like 26 point, 8 rebound, 8 assist effort from Tre Kelley.. Tim Floyd though probably wasn't too worried about the loss considering he locked up top prospect OJ Mayo on Wednesday. 58-21 sounds like the score of a Patriots-Raiders game.. but its the first half spanking that Maryland gave St. John's. The Terps come into this season with less respect then they've had in a long time, but a win over Michigan State tonight and they could find themselves back in the top 25. They'll face the Spartans in the Coaches vs Cancer finals, because Drew Neitzel hit a shot near the buzzer to give MSU the win over Texas. The Maryland-MSU final will feature two top programs that are suddenly overlooked in the national eye. As inexperienced as MSU is, to have an experienced point guard like Neitzel gives them a heads up over most teams around the country. Despite the loss, the good news for Texas is that Kevin Durant is proving to be as good as advertised.. the heralded freshman is averaging 21 points, 9 boards, and almost 4 blocks per game. If you haven't seen him play, you can check him out on ESPN 2 tonight at 7 eastern.
