Missouri Valley Conference battle comes down to a last second runner.
Fans of the kids wearing the baby blue were saved by Ty Lawson last night, escaping with a victory in Tallahassee and avoiding their third conference loss of the season.
Uhhhh…wasn’t this team supposed to go undefeated?
The speedy guard dribbled 3/4 of the court, hitting an unorthodox running three ball to help the Tar Heels save face. All of a sudden, the Tar Heels have morphed into nothing more than a really good basketball team from the ACC.
Well the Thundering Herd didn’t just win at the buzzer, this game was played Wednesday 1/21, but Markel Henderson should still be given props on his 75 foot game winning shot over Southern Methodist. The Mustangs led for most of the game, only to be on the losing end of this game that sent everyone on hand into mass hysteria.
Marshall is a sub .500 Conference USA team, so don’t expect any more talk about these guys for the rest of the season. But for now, go nuts in Huntington guys!
We’re not sure how celebratory Memphis fans are after this Antonio Anderson buzzer beating lay in. Instead, we’re thinking it is more along the lines of relief. Nonetheless, the Tigers save face for now and extend their consecutive wins against Conference USA foes to 45. Phew.
Two weeks ago on their own court, Cleveland State was stabbed in the heart by conference foe Butler. We didn’t chronicle the drama because well, “Cleveland State versus Butler isn’t very important” became the prevailing thought.
Today the Horizon League demands attention, as now the Vikings have their own game ending story to tell. Cedric Jackson had his prayers answered, handing Syracuse their first loss of the season.
We hope this pushed the lowly Browns off today’s front page of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
CBS HD, thank you! And no, we are not talking about Gus Johnson’s over excitement for a great entry pass 2 minutes into a matchup between two unranked Big Ten (Small?) teams. We are talking about the only starting lineup we cared about last night…Marisa Miller, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes and Heidi Klum.
If you clasped the remote with two hands and buried your bum into that plush recliner to watch an outside chance that Mateen Cleaves, grey beard and all, would emerge from the depths of Ford Field to lead a MSU comeback over UNC, well then we just feel bad for you. All the action we needed was carried in C cups, chartered by wings, during the 2008 Victoria’s Secret Show.
Here’s your “Quickie Recap” for 12.3 …notice the nail biter (7 points) @ Xavier, wow. Hopefully we can expect better out of #9 UCLA visiting #8 Texas tonight.
If we could post three of these a week, life would be good. Of course, that consistent feeling of elation is contingent on a close game ending in a miraculous finish, and, more importantly, other rabid fans like us promptly posting the video for others to enjoy.
But since we have it…Wisconsin got a 1 up in the win column for the Big 10, as the 10th installment of their annual series with the ACC got off to an unexpectedly enjoyable start. Bill Raftery “ONIONS!” was courtside, so that certainly helped, but it was interesting to watch the Badgers actually outscore and outlast their opponent, instead of relying on hard nose defense.
It’s difficult here not to notice the Hokies were on the wrong end of our other ‘touch each other’ post just over a week ago. That shot, by Xavier’s Dante Jackson, was roughly 90 percent luck and you can’t really fault Va Tech or even “Monday morning quarterback” it. We’re guessing this time around Hank Greenberg is combating a severe headache and surely would of liked tonight’s hero, Trevon Hughes, to have been pressured closer to half court.
Unfortunately for him, what’s done is done as Wisconsin gets a nice road win against a decent Virginia Tech squad.
