Duke and North Carolina play tonight for the 2nd time this season. Tip is set for 7PM. in their first meeting, Austin Rivers banged a jump shot as time expired to beat the Tar Heels.
Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune on Chris Lowery, fired at Southern Illinois.
Dennis Deitch of the Journal Register talks to Al Attles about Wilt’s 100 point night.
Sam Khan of Chron.com on a former college basketball player breaking into a house and ripping off his old coach.
I had to laugh this morning when someone at ESPN thought LeBron James should have taken the last shot in last night’s loss to the Utah Jazz. Only an idiot would think that. The guy was double teamed coming off a screen. You always hit the man who is open. But, ESPN made no mention of D-Wade missing a costly free-throw though with 14 seconds remaining. Yeah, yeah, blame it on LeBron.
Quote of the Day: “I think in terms of Paul Bunyan when I think of Wilt,” Attles said. “Paul Bunyan was a mythical character, and for a lot of people Wilt was mythical.” -Al Attles on Wilt Chamberlain
