Kind of a light slate of basketball games today... there are only two games that pit Top 25 teams against each other. In the first, Iowa held on for a narrow road victory at Indiana. Losing at home is never good, but it's not a bad effort for a team who's coach may or may not have quit on them yesterday at practice. Somewhere, Rick Majerus is still thinking wistfully about Greg Brunner's 19-point performance today.
Duke put in an efficient and workmanline performance at Maryland, winning by a score of 96-88 behind 35 from JJ Redick. And yes, I noticed Coach K's white shoes, too. It wasn't just a fashion statement; a lot of coaches are doing it today in support of National Coaches vs. Cancer Day. It's just one of the many things Coach K does to get you armed for life. His life is not about playing games.
In the other Top 25 game, UCLA and Washington are locked in a pretty good game right now on ABC. Justin Dentmon has 14 for the Huskies. They trail by a point with about 10 minutes to play.
