Here We Go!

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- So what are you doing Wednesday night, say around 8:00pm? Rumor has it that there is a basketball tilt transpiring at UD Arena that will have a few things going for it:

A showdown between #1 UD and #2 VCU for the regular season Atlantic 10 Conference Championship

Senior Night for Kyle, Kendall, Charles, Scooch and Jeremiah Bonsu

A celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1967 NCAA National Men’s Basketball Championship Runner-up squad

Red Panda at halftime!

Looking forward to being there in person to take it all in!

-- For once I actually agree with something that John Calipari has to say—that firing coaches in mid-season like Mark Gottfried at NC State just ain’t right:

Pete Thamel at Sports Illustrated believes NC State may have problems replacing Gottfried. Ya think?

-- UD Pride MB poster MikeF asked in the Davidson game thread “Does any site do win probabilities for college basketball? I would like to see how high Davidson peaked and how quickly that probability cratered.” Unfortunately, the answer is no. However, Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com did produce an in-depth piece tracking the win probability during the incredible Patriots comeback in the Super Bowl:

-- Video proof that if you fly a drone over an ambush of tigers that they are gonna do what tigers do—eat!

-- We have a tie for “The Sweet Tweet of the Week.” The first winner comes to us from UD grad and Celtics’ beat writer Steve Bulpett of The Boston Herald after UD’s ‘Thrilla in Carolina’ last Friday:

Dayton defeats Davidson, 89-82... Cha-ching. Let's just say if you're looking up a certain Golden State guard's salary online, subtract $5.

The second is a video tweet courtesy of Dave Kaplan of NBC Sports Network on the atmosphere at UD Arena:

That’s it “From the Swamp.”
