First off, I would like to apologize for taking the previous two days off, and appreciate those viewers who still stopped by to see if I did post anything. I will have expanded coverage of the sports world this weekend seeing as I mised two straight days! For those of you who do not remember, this is Four Things about sports, where the title is pretty self-explanatory!
- Why now, Jerry? Jerry Sloan, previously the longest active coaching coach, resigned recently. I ask, why? Twenty-two great seasons, and he just re-signed a one year extension Monday, the Jazz aren’t even having a bad season! With a record of 31-23, only 3.5 games out of first place, I don’t understand why he would say, “my time is up”. Regardless, I congratulate Sloan for the excellent career he put together, and I may put together an article breaking down his resignation. My Opinion: Coaches should not leave, unless having a horrendous season, in the middle of the year! Espicially one of Jerry’s caliber! Henceforth, one could understand why I feel that he should have at least finished off the season!
- Duke wins in comeback style! Being down by 14 at halftime usually assures a team a win, not for a visitor at Cameron Indoor! Duke was down 14 to all-time rival North Carolina Wednesday night, albeit Coach K got Duke fired up at the half, and two minutes into the half, the Blue Devils only trailed by six. After going back and forth for a while, the Dukies really took charge behind Nolan Smith and Seth Curry’s shooting ability. Curry dropped 20+, around five assists, and eight rebounds. Nolan Smith posted a career high with 34 points! Overall, it was a heck of a game, or second half, for the Duke Blue Devils, and a HUGE win!
- Red Storm blow out Kemba Walker’s Huskies. Well Duke fans, no need to feel embarrassed. St John’s Red Storm blew out the number nine ranked UCONN Huskies last night, in a game that Kemba Walker only shot 4-16. Can you say “bubble team”? You should be able to, its synonymous for the St. Johns Red Storm! NOTE: Hardy has 33 points for St. John’s.
- Ray Allen breaks all-time three point mark. Last night the Lakers flew to Boston, where they did indeed beat the Celtics. Ray Allen was one three pointer away from breaking Reggie Miller’s all time record. Well, he hit that three and the crowd errupted in what was an emotional moment for the veteran. Wow, over 2,000 career three pointers, and couting, that is pure insanity! NOTE: Reggie Miller congratulated Allen at the game, seeing as he was in attendence.
