Current Alabama Head Coach Anthony Grant’s old team fucked me royally tonight. VCU choked away a 17-point lead (or something like that) in the second half of their game (which preceded the Kentucky game on ESPN’s TV Schedule), allowing George Mason to come back, take the game into overtime, and force me to miss the first 9 1/2 minutes of the first half of UK-Alabama. Notes:
– Wall leads all scorers with 11. He also has six rebounds, two steals, and one block (and five turnovers).
– The double-double cyborg that is DeMarcus Cousins is on pace for his 15th this season. He’s got six points and seven rebounds at the intermission.
– Bledsoe and Patterson have five each. Liggins has chipped in four off the bench.
– I heard someone say this week that Jay Williams was one of the best color anlaysts in college basketball. Granted, this is the first time I’ve really listened to him, but I could not disagree more.
