UConn Wins it ALL Again!

Yes, UConn‘s mens and women’s team won the NCAA championship after Women’s UConn beat Norte Dame 79-58. UConn went 40-0 through the season and tourney and ND went 37-1. Brianna Stewart had 21 points and 9 boards in the big win. This is the 2nd time a college has won both championships, who did it? UConn . This is UConn’s 9th championship and that surpassed the Tennessee Lady Volunteers. Great win for UConn… Kevin Durant’s streak of 25 point games was snapped last night when he scored 23 against Sacramento. OKC still won by 15. In baseball, Mets new pitcher Bartolo Colon pitched 7 scoreless innings in the Mets 4-0 win vs. the Braves. There were many before the game celebrations because yesterday 40 years ago, the legendary slugger Hank Aaron surpassed the great bambino Babe Ruth’s all-time home runs. This record looked impossible to many but Aaron did it. This record still may be impossible because Barry Bonds current record may be taken away due to the still pending investigation on use of illegal PEDs. Aaron has the most RBI’s in MLB history and maybe the best slugger to EVER...

Huskies Win It All!

The Uconn Huskies were the victors of last night’s national championship.   UConn was led by Shabazz Napier with 22 points and 6 rebounds and the best player of the Final 4 award.  I could see a ghost of former Uconn Superstar PG Kemba Walker in Shabazz , Kemba is now with the Charlotte Bobcats who finally clinched the playoffs last week. This is coach Kevin Olllie‘s 1st championship in his 1st season with UConn. The Kentucky Wildcats were led by James Young with 20 points and 7 boards. The underdog can always win and UConn did just...

Mets Win 2nd game in a Row

The Mets won their 2nd game in a row Saturday with a 6-3 win vs. the Reds.  With Dillon Gee pitching for the Mets, he let up 3 runs to the Reds in 7 innings of pitching, he earned a no decision in the win.  After going 2 games hitless, Mets OF Curtis Granderson has 4 hits on 15 tries, a home run and 3 RBI’s. If he keeps this up, this can be a real  bright spot this year for NY.  The Mets were down 3-2 to Cincy with their 2 coming from a Grandy homer. I turned on the TV in the bottom of the 9th and something magical happened. A rally started with now electric OF Juan Lagares drawing a walk, then with backup catcher Anthony Recker up, he bunted to move over Lagares and prevent the double play. But Recker was safe at 1st because the Reds tried to get Lagares at 2nd, at first Lagares was called out but Mets manager Terry Collins challenged the ruling and then Lagares was safe at second base. SS Ruben Tejada was supposed to be replaced by Ike Davis as a so Davis could bat but instead, Tejada stayed at bat and walked to load the bases. Now with the pitcher up, Davis stepped up to the plate. Why was Davis pinch hitting? He lost his 1B job to Lucas Duda who hit 2 homers in the Mets...

Too Painful

Yesterday I learned listening to a Final 4 game on the radio in the last seconds of your favorite team’s game (especially when their tied or losing) is a PAINFUL and bad idea.  Oh yeah, I forgot.  When your team Loses! Its even more painful… Here are the 2 recaps of last night’s Elite 8 games… Michigan vs. Kentucky: What a game. Michigan was shooting the jumper really well in this game as always because that’s their strength. Rebounding and crashing the boards is disappointing for this BIG BLUE squad. Kentucky did just that and BIG MAN Julius Randle had 16 points and 11 boards to push UK to the win.  Here are my 2 reasons why UMich lost: 1-rebounds, with Julius Randle crashing the boards the whole game, Michigan couldn’t find a big man to guard him. 2- Bench production was scarce in the loss with Spike Albrecht scoring 0 for 1 and the whole bench getting 11 points in all.  Kentucky on the other side was great with strong games by Andrew Harrison with 8 points, 6 dimes and 3 boards, James Young with 13 points, Julius Randle with 16 points and 11 boards, Aaron Harrison with 12 points and Dakari Johnson with 8 points. Off the bench, Marcus Lee scored 10 and grabbed 8 boards and the 3 players on the bench combined for 18 points.  The game came down to a 72-72 tie and Aaron Harrison hitting the...

Down to North Texas!

The final Four is on! 2 teams have clinched final 4 spots so far and the 2 games today will determine the other 2. I am rooting for my BIG BLUE and hoping they can pull out a win tonight.  Here are the sums of last nights match ups… #1 Florida vs. #11 Dayton Flyers…  An expected ending for a young and talented Dayton team came to real-life yesterday when the Flyers lost to #1 Florida 62-52. Dayton had a Cinderella run this year after being seeding at #11 and beating #6 Ohio State in the 1st round to mess up ALL the brackets (including mine), then beat #3 Syracuse in a very close game and then beating #10 Stanford in the Sweet 16. On the other side, my bet to play vs UMich in the finals is #1 Florida. Florida has been routing all of their opponents with 12 (Albany), 16 (Pittsburgh), 11 (UCLA) and 10 (Dayton) point wins in the tourney. UF has a very talented team only losing 2 games this year and being the victors for 36 of them. Led by Scottie Wilbekin‘s 23 points and Dorian Finney-Smith‘s 9 boards, UF got the much needed win vs. Dayton.  UD’s top player Dyshawn Pierre had 18 points and 5 assists in the tough loss. UF will play the winner of Michigan st. vs. UConn in the final four. With many young stars coming back, Dayton can...
