Big East Journal: Day 1 - That Was Something

by Kenny Ducey

While almost everyone in New York was busy watching the Knicks win their fifth-straight game, then continuing to follow the Phil Jackson-to-NY news, there was some basketball being played at Madison Square Garden. It was kind of weird basketball.

Sloppy may be the best term to describe it; there was an abundance of fouls and a ton of missed jumpshots. The only of the four teams to play that shot better than 36% in the first half, Georgetown, lost 60-56 to DePaul. Seton Hall, going just 5/20 from deep, fought off Butler 51-50.

Kansas-Duke: Future Implications

The Kansas Jayhawks Men’s Basketball team (not just Andrew Wiggins) must take precedence over the freshmen domination beginning to take place. 

I didn’t believe they deserved to be fifth in the country, but after the Duke game, I can’t say enough about the Jayhawks. I thought Duke was going to win by 10 or more points. Needless to say… I was incorrect.

Jeff Short Transfers, but his Shoes can be Filled

Flash back to last April.

It’s late in recruiting season, but the Rams manage to get a 6’ 1” Point Guard out of Blair Academy by the name of Jermaine Myers. He’ll add depth to the backcourt and compete with Fatty McMillan for minutes. The team enters the offseason on a higher note than years past; while Kervin Bristol is gone, Chris Gaston will surely have a monster senior campaign.

With the Final Four beginning tonight, we decided to call up the voice of college basketball on Dial Global Sports, Kevin Kugler. The play-by-play man has had the pleasure of broadcasting the last six Final Fours and will be joined this year on the call by legends Bill Raftery and John Thompson.

Kugler told Bobby Gubin and I how difficult it was to describe Louisville guard Kevin Ware’s gruesome injury to a national radio audience. The Big 10 Network announcer also helped us break down the matchups between Louisville and Wichita State as well as Michigan vs. Syracuse.

James Southerland: Stock Up

by Kenny Ducey

It goes without saying James Southerland can shoot the basketball. The 6’ 8” Senior Forward has hit 12 of the 15 threes he’s attempted through two games at the Big East Tournament, and he’s not done yet. Just five more and he’ll break the record of 16 held by Gerry McNamara, a former Orangeman, for most in a single tournament in history.
