This and That

Week of March 1st, 2021

 
Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:
  • I had the pleasure along with Bob Wischusen to call the Bedlam Battle between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State and witnessed the best pressure performance I have seen this year by Cade Cunningham. He had 40 points and 11 reounds in an OT win, 94-90.
  • Kansas with a terrific defensive effort gives Baylor its first L of the season. Bill Self gets superb games from David McCormack and Marcus Garrett. Rock Chalk Jayhawk wins 71-58!
  • The Tar Heels, and Hall of Famer Roy Williams, made up Big Time for their bad loss earlier this week to Marquette, beating a very good Florida State team. The VBDI says that UNC sealed the deal to be part of March Madness as Williams got his 900th career win.
  • Matthew Hurt was brilliant but Duke lost in overtime to Louisville. That was a good road win for the Cardinals.
  • Spring training is under way. I’m excited to see my Rays in action.
