Basketball Cliff Notes
Pitt 74 – 66 Syracuse: And then there were three. How things might have been different had leading scorer Kris Joseph been there for the Orangemen…but he wasn’t and Pitt handed Syracuse their first loss of the season and more importantly the Panthers, who are off to a 6-0 start in conference play for the first time ever, are in first place all by their lonesome in the Big East standings. We’ll see just how long that last though.
UConn 61 – 59 Villanova: He did it again! Kemba Walker overcame a tuff shooting night to lead the Huskies to the win down the stretch, hitting a big three and the game winner just like he did at Texas last week. Walker right now reminds me of Gilbert Arenas back when people used to call him Agent Zero, you know back when he was actually good.
Even with the loss ‘Nova is still in the Big East title hunt and have a chance to even the score with games coming up against Syracuse (Saturday) and Pitt (Next Monday).
KState’s Sucking: Missouri whooped KState’s ass last night 75-59 and watching it the game didn’t even seem like it was that close. I don’t know know how many time I have to say it, but KState was just as overrated this preseason as UNC was.
It’s like that one Jets player said after the Patriots game, their defense couldn’t stop a nose bleed and is giving up 80 ppg in conference. At 1-3 in the Big 12 KState can already forget about a conference title and if they lose this next game to #10 Texas A&M on road Saturday they might as well start puckering up because they’ll soon be kissing their tournament dreams goodbye too.
