My All No-Name College Basketball Team

I’ve done some research, and realized that many players aren’t getting the respect they deserve. So I decided to make an All-Star team out of no- names.

G- Lester Hudson: 27.3 PPG, 4.1 APG, 7.8 RPG, 2.4 SPG

G- David Holston: 25.9 PPG, 6.4 APG, 3.7 RPG, 3.0 SPG

F-  Ahmad Nivins: 19.2 PPG, 1.1 APG, 11.7 RPG, 1.8 BPG

Ahmad Nivins is just one vastly underrated player in the NCAA.

Syracuse Set to Play Louisville in the Big East Finals

At Madison Square Garden in New York, Syracuse played their second overtime game in two nights. Again, they won the game. But, this time, it wasn’t an upset, as they played and promptly beat unranked West Virginia.

But, this wasn’t like the West Virginia game. It was just one overtime where Syracuse led the whole time.

Johnny Flynn, the Bob Cousy award finalist(Best Point Guard), has played a grand total of 112 minutes in his last two game. He played 67 of the 70 minutes last night and was never taken out of the game. He ended with 15 points and 9 assists.

Devindorf had another big game, with 23 points. He was taken out for two minutes because of foul trouble, but that’s it.

Devan Ebanks topped his career high from yesterday. Today he had 22 points.

The final score was 74 to 69.

Amidst Big Upsets, Few Teams Step Up

Since the start of the conference tournaments, there have been many disappointments and many surprises. Two such games came yesterday, March 12, 2009.

The first one came in a game between Pittsburgh and West Virginia. All through the game, you couldn’t tell if it was the same Pittsburgh team that just recently beat the then #1 Connecticut. West Virginia simply dominated Pitt, beating them in the end by 14, 74-60. Devan Ebanks led the Mountaineers with 20 points and 7 rebounds, while playing all 40 minutes. LeVance Fields stood out for the Panthers, because even though he only had 6 points, he also had 6 rebounds and 7 assists. But it wasn’t enough.

Courtney Paris GUARANTEES National Championship… Or Else

Oklahoma star Courtney Paris guaranteed that her Sooners will win the National Title. Even over UConn.

Oklahoma star Courtney Paris guaranteed that her Sooners will win the National Title. Even over UConn.

Courtney Paris has guaranteed that her Oklahoma Sooners will win the National Championship. But, this is no regular guarantee. She is willing to give up around 64,000 dollars if they don’t.

I’ll explain: Courtney Paris said that if the Sooners don’t win the National Championship, she will pay back every penny of her scholarship, which is worth about 64,000 dollars, more than a WNBA rookie makes(45,000 dollars is the salary for one.).

Steelers Win Amazing Super Bowl

The Defensive Player of the Year made a huge difference in this Super Bowl. In two plays.

The first one came just before halftime, score at 7 to 10. The Steelers were up, and the Cardinals had the ball on the 2 or 3 yard line, about to score. Kurt Warner dropped back, looked left, and threw a pass to a slanting receiver. Harrison darted toward the ball and picked it off, with huge momentum.
