Just real quick, Seth Davis reports before the game that NC State's Herb Sendek is no longer NC State's. He's been offerred and has accepted the head coaching job at Arizona State. I think the Sun Devils just got one of the better coaches in the nation.
Billy Packer's first comment of the game is about the great athletes that are on the floor. Kind of a subtle little slap at George Mason's lack of athleticism. At least he's consistent in his hateful bile.
Hey, a guy with a mask. Lorenzo Mata of UCLA is sporting a mask after breaking his nose in a Wednesday practice. UCLA leads 9-4 early, and they look a little bit sharper than LSU right now. I was able to get a pretty screen capture of it on the right there.
Christ. Eli and Peyton Manning in the crowd. Shouldn't they be hanging out with Ed Nelson in a pickup truck somewhere?
LSU's not getting a lot of open looks. UCLA's cranking it up on defense, and and LSU hasn't been able to take advantage of what should be an advantage for them in the post.
A steal and a dunk by Luc Mbah a Moute, and UCLA is on fire. It's 18-8. LSU needs to get themselves settled down and in gear.
