He had eight points and eight rebounds. By no means a bad night for him. He only took seven shots, but Georgia was defending him pretty tight inside with Ogbeide when he was on the floor. Tilmon was 0 of 4 from the foul line, which is rare. Hit a few of those and the stat line looks better.
Good question. Hochman was quite the baller at Clayton HS, and BenFred was a football legend in Sedalia. Anne Rogers would win a long-distance running competition. I have one year of high school wrestling experience under my belt - and a winless career record - but I bet I could still manage a one-legged takedown.
Missouri is exactly No. 75 as of today. If that holds, Temple, Tennessee, Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M and Kentucky would all have a Quad 1 win at Mizzou Arena.
Because 17 wins historically gets a power conference team into the NIT. That's been the cutoff the last five years. It wouldn't be a guarantee by any means, especially if a handful of mid-major conference leaders get upset in their conference tournament and get the automatic NIT bid. But for Mizzou to reach 17 wins, that would require at least two over NCAA Tournament teams: Ole Miss on Saturday and another in the SEC tourney over the likes of Auburn, Florida or Mississippi State.
Yes, LSU just announced. He's suspended indefinitely. Huge news heading into next week's tourney in Nashville.
I don't roll my eyes at that, but we just don't have the staff to cover all the non-revenue teams, especially events and games that our readers don't care about as much. We are a business and have to make business decisions when we decide what events and teams on which we're spending our time and money. I'd like to have a swimming story before the NCAA meet, but it will depend on schedules for the sports that get the bulk of our attention.
I agree with that statement to some degree .... unless LSU is aware that Wade lied to his bosses about the situation. All that's changed between last fall and now is that the contents of the wiretap has been publicized, unless LSU believes Wade lied about what happened. In that case, the school will have grounds to fire him.
OK, friends. That's all the time I have. We'll do this again next week.
