We start the week with a bit of sad news, my co-author's computer has to be in the shop for the week. So, John will likely be contributing solely via the comments section while simultaneously getting more work done than usual. On to the weekend wrap-up.
1) Duke's slip and slide - Problem #1, Greg Paulus 5-12, 12 pts, 7 TOs 14 wasted possessions (out of 69 total, ouch). Problem #2, remaining schedule, Maryland was a gimme 3 more away games in conference (only away W's Miami, NCSU), and home against MD & GT. Hopefully for their sake St. John's will keel over for them and Gerald Henderson will develop his point guard play. (Observer Article)
2) Other College Wrap-up - I guess BC is for real real, since they won @ FSU looks like Saturday's show down with UNC will put the winner in the driver's seat for ACC Regular Season crown though BC does play @ VT, host Clemson, and @ GT. On another coast, the Pac-10 finally started beating up on its self like the other major conference. VT reigned in UVA, Purdue almost beat OverratedSU (haha, that works for 2 teams), G'Town showed they're 'bout it 'bout it by handling Big East 3rd placer Marquette, West Virginia suprised UCLA, 'Zona showed some teeth beating OverratedU in Niketown, Florida flexed a little bit, and GT confirmed the ACC's superiority (when they're playing at home). (21 of the top 25 played Saturday)
And-1) The NFL has a Pro-Bowl? - Yeah, AFC won on a last second FG, but honestly who really cares.
UNC 104 Wake 67
Blazers 108 Bobcats 100 OT
