He came out against the Memphis Grizzlies and went for a career high. 47 points or Randy Wittman only had nine players available John put this entire franchise. On his back. This. It charges in his own the name referenced Riverside Sunday. Positively resume its influence in the first quarter and knew that going on our coach of our team raises grow me.

  3. SportsTalk Live: Are automatic bids good for the tourney?

    Mon, 25 Mar 2013

    CSN Washington dot com. The great thing about it is the they always talk about well who was the best teams it's gonna find the best and doesn't matter about the best team. DC you wouldn't be DC you tournament can wouldn't Gonzaga without the NCAA tournament it's about. Finding those teams from the smaller conferences disagree Gary Williams I love Gary would it from Maryland but he's wrong it should not be. Automatic bid should not be in the tournament automatic what makes this tournament so great it's finding all these great stories develop having said all that. Thirteen of the sixteen teams still alive. Are from the six power conferences there's only three teams jumping up in there so when it gets down the final four weekend it's still about. The best teams in the country but that first weekend not. In Boris even a minute conjure up a dose goes on Louis weasels say it cover we don't hear about they'd make March March Madness and you look at Georgetown isn't a great number they going to play against He hit the golf. Florida golf Colts. And I think we look at this team and their way I've seen this team to get it. We all feel this team Lotta guys they say when they were they should've been I don't fishermen if they. This team has been all year they played defense ignite their offense and some struggles in. And determine you look at is a lot of double digits has not tomorrow. Thought the golf course this year is to stay in 1112 VCU but all of there seemed to beat him. Then make them make the wrong it's like they lose so it's even the team does not solve the next game those teams go out and make an amazing run not to floor. Golf calls would say I'm not saying is what George Is what they'd they went out there and took that game and they have to get the credit for. Georgetown is a disappointment I had been his final fourteen I I didn't I'd seen them play in a big games this year mess up my bracket a lot of people's brackets I thought this was the year they finally. Jump up and make a little bit around and really disappointing and losses like this cost guys like Ben Howland the job. JT drumming is in trouble but that's a lot of losses early on for a power team. It definitely you know I'm figuring you hit those that allow people go on number two seed number wants him I don't care you are what little major schools are the major carves you get that you need to play. And this is that we we talk every year about the best team best team doesn't always win the team that's playing the best win and that team was don't enjoy sound was. They got a situation where this superstar was struggling he was scored. And I don't think necessarily a legitimate consistent Robin to go Woodson. You know the go what the meant when you don't have that you have problems when he struck I would wonder what would happen. Otto Porter didn't want to have those big games he didn't have in the. It is not a big game back he was pretty much a non factor throughout that game so disappointing. Bracket possibility. I don't think there's a corporate practice out there did you think they're rabbi might as well that's still very good care the chaos reigns in the sweet sixteen. As we look around a different our brackets. There are some teams that are there going to be a sweet sixteen you're probably. Major leaguers become a twelve or. Okay thirteen let's and would start today. Those great right they're sitting there a big make I don't know about hard it really cartilage problems when Louisville Cardinals tried plan better than anybody out. Organs of your team then Michigan State Duke game I'm looking forward to Michigan State I in the championship game. Against Indiana and all Big Ten and that's something it was proven this first weekend. Big Ten was legit all season long is four teams still alive in the Indiana series you're right here in DC. That's gonna guess that would be a great game and be Kansas Michigan also there's some good matchups there. But again. Thirteen of the sixteen teams come from power six conferences they do we really don't get down to it we usually end up seeing did you tournament's all about that first weekend box Florida Gulf can be a team that moves on didn't get to the elite eight. His team right now they're playing against Florida it. Florida which we'll start a week and I think they can be a part of the team up there a they beat Miami already this year if they can knock off Florida are made up for it to read up some big things form.
