Meanwhile, back in Balad, the ever enterprising blogger is contemplating all the latest news on basketball. This includes college basketball and the NBA. A quick rundown:
Oklahoma City is one step closer to landing an NBA franchise. The city council approved a long term lease in the hopes of enticing the Seattle Supersonics to head east. After getting a taste of NBA action with the New Orleans Hornets, Oklahoma City is anxious to get their very own franchise. Unfortunately it seems to be the Sonics, who are a miserable 17-54 right now as opposed to those same Hornets who currently lead the Southwest.
The NCAA Tournament has offered it’s fair share of upsets already. Can we expect more? If my prediction for a Cinderella National Championship is to come true, we’ll have to. Best games?
North Carolina vs Washington St
Can #12 Villanova upset #1 Kansas? I’m calling for it.
Memphis vs Michigan State and Stanford vs Texas. Two can’t miss contests.
