College Hoops Comendium: Four More on the Dance Floor

Illustration for article titled College Hoops Comendium: Four More on the Dance Floor

Winthrop 84, VMI 81. VMI is the team that aspires to play like the Phoenix Suns on crystal meth. They average over 100 a game, and while it might have been fun to see them have a go in the tournament... they were 14-19, and didn't deserve the bid. Winthrop's now won 7 conference tournaments in 9 years. That's an incredible number.


Belmont 94, East Tennessee State 67. A lot of these smaller conference championship games are very exciting affairs that come down to a last shot... Belmont decided they'd rather just beat some ass. They made it rain threes. Second straight Atlantic Sun title for the Bruins.

Davidson 72, Charleston 65. If Dell Curry did some more reproducing, he could really help out the smaller basketball conferences of America. His son Stephen was on fire in the SoCon tournament final today, torching the College of Charleston for 29. He racked up 79 points in the tournament's three games. Well done, fruit of Dell's loins.

Eastern Kentucky 63, Austin Peay. EKU's coach is a fellow named Jeff Neubauer, a former WVU assistant under John Beilein. Neubauer's Colonels play a very similar style to West Fuckin' Virginia's... a style that's been pretty successful in the tournament. Thought you might wanna know.

(3) Kansas 90, (15) Texas 86. Few body parts in the world attracted more interest yesterday than Kevin Durant's ankle. He rolled it in the second half of yesterday's game, and if there was a slight spike in the suicide rates in Philadelphia, Memphis, and Boston, it's because a few NBA front office people threw themselves off bridges. He should be okay, but... he did look a little gimpy when he came back.

Washington 61, (2) UCLA 51. Nice of Washington to show up when their NCAA tournament hopes are probably already dead and buried. UCLA did sort of the opposite, not showing up because they're a lock for the tournament. They may have cost themselves the top overall seed, though.
