This and That


Week of March 24th, 2019

Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:

*It is time for college basketball players to get some cash. A report by Luke DeCock said the ACC’s NCAA wins are worth $ 1.6 million each. That’s cool, but how much will Zion Williamson, Luke Maye and DeAndre Hunter get? Oh yes, they’ll get a handshake and will be told, great job kid!

* Hate to see any coach fired, especially one like Phil Martelli, who gave his heart to St . Joseph’s. Not a way you like to see 34 years of sweat, tears and laughter come to the end.

*If there is one guy worth the large paycheck it is Mike Trout. He is a gamer, a five-tool SUPERSTAR in every way on and off the field!

*Kyler Murray is opening more eyes. Will he go number one to the Cardinals?

*Carsen Edwards was brilliant against Villanova, nine trifectas, 42 points. The Big East is out of the big dance already.

*Brandon Clarke of Gonzaga scored 36 points vs Baylor, a school record. The Zags are back in the Sweet 16.
