Xavier played their best game of the season tonight. Completely balanced on offense. Let's hope that Brian Thorton stays healthy for the remainder of the season. I won't count XU out of the NCAA tournament yet. They won the A10 Championship last year before the Elite Eight run. Keep it up Muskies!
Also, one of the best freshmen in the country resides on the Victory Parkway campus. Stanley Burrell, no, not MC Hammer from the Super Bowl commercials, is one hell of a ball player. He isn't a traditional freshman per se, since he spent last year at a prep school to get him prepared for the college speed.
UK is holding their own in a less than spectacular SEC this year. Still, only three losses on the season for such a young team is incredible. I was at the game on Saturday against Mississippi State. There isn't a better atmosphere in the country to watch a ballgame. Got in a little trouble for chanting "Digger Sucks" so went with the back up chant, "4 and 12." That was his record coaching in Rupp Arena. If you couldn't figure it out, I hate Digger Phelps.
KAZ (Kelenna Azubuike) the best game of his career tonight. Wished he started doing that a little earlier this season, but if he and the Cats get things going now, that will make me happy.
Sorry to see Travis Diener's career is over at Marquette. Tough kid. One hell of a ballplayer. He will make some NBA team very happy. Much like Kirk Hinrich.
