It was a very powerful, emotional and historic day as Robert Montgomery returned to Assembly Hall for the first time since September 10 , 2000!

Now Indiana needs to put a statue in from of Assembly Hall to honor The General.

Meanwhile I enjoyed calling the game which saw Purdue get a big road win.

The NBA trade deadline had a lot of activity. Among the players moving included Andrew Wiggins, Andre Drummond, Andre Iguodala, Marcus Morris, D’Angelo Russell, Clint Capela, Jae Crowder and John Henson.

The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl in Miami

It was great for Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes and the comeback kids. They rallied from 20-10 down to prevail.

Congrats to the new class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Edgerrin James, Steve Atwater, Steve Hutchinson, Troy Polamalu and Isaac Bruce are worthy of the honor.

I had a great time at The Phog calling Kansas’ win over Texas Tech. Both teams are so well-coached.

The entire Sports World mourning the passing of Kobe and those with him in the helicopter crash including his 13 year old girl Gianna. What a terrible tragedy.

 

I was very impressed watching the number one team in America, the Baylor Bears. Scott Drew’s team was impressive in a win at Florida.

The Bears play hard on both ends of the court. They are outstanding defensively and do a great job on the offensive glass. Freddie Gillespie is one of the best stories in college basketball. He came from Division III Carleton College to become a factor.

I believe Baylor is a legitimate Final Four contender.

The Australian Open has had some drama. Roger Federer and Nick Kyrgios winning dramatic four=hour matches. Serena Williams was upset in the third round. It is the first major of the year.

One week til the Super Bowl. I like Kansas City to win the game.

The Tennessee Titans have become a huge story. Beating the Patriots and Ravens in consecutive weeks is special.

Derrick Henry has been putting up monster numbers. The Titan defense has been making big plays, including stopping Lamar Jackson twice on fourth-and-one plays.

Then there was Kansas City. The Texans led by 24 points, only to give up 51 and lose by 20.

College basketball saw a lot of great moments. Clemson snapped a 0-59 streak at Chapel hill, winning at North Carolina. Baylor won for the first time at Allen Field House, impressively beating Kansas. Syracuse won at Virginia after being humiliated by the Cavs earlier in the season.

I called the Memphis-South Florida game. Great to see Penny Hardaway and Brian Gregory. It was a tough loss for USF, which had a 14-point lead in the second half.
