Michigan State Dominates the Tigers in DC

Eight-Oh with thirty seven minutes to go is how Michigan State began the evening against the Louisiana State University Tigers.  The Spartans never seemed phased in route a 80 – 63 victory in the nation’s capital.  

“It’s a very good LSU team; scary the way they can shoot the ball,” said Tom Izzo, Michigan State’s head coach. “But really proud of this team taking the scouting report and adhering to it and figuring out what a team’s strengths are; I thought we attacked them very well.”

With the exception of a strong start to the second half, Michigan State seemed to control this game.  Dominating on the boards with 41 rebounds to the Tigers 34, the Spartans were able to peak when the …

Jake Takes Nats to the Max

The Washington Nationals “maxed out” the attendance, “maxxed” the disdain intensity for their former super star, Bryce Harper and found their maximum level of offensive inefficiency in their home opener, Thursday, Mar. 28, 2019.  As Max Scherzer took the mound and broke team records, his team couldn’t find their sticks to support his “max” effort losing 2-0.    

“I felt good out there,” the National’s starting pitcher, Max Scherzer said. “I felt like I was executing pitches…from that standpoint, this is a great first start for me to go out there again and make a little adjustment on the cutter and go out there and compete again.”

The Final Climb to Glory

2019 Ingles Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Semi-finals

Wofford 81  ETSU 72

(Asheville, NC) – As far as shot-making goes, the coaches on both sidelines thought they had seen everything imaginable over the past four years from Wofford’s senior sharp-shooter Fletcher Magee. The Southern Conference’s Player of the Year, on the brink of NCAA history, is known for his variety of high-risk, no-look, long-range three pointers with defenders draped all over him. However to make one with the season on the line is enough to leave even the most experienced and traveled coaches shaking their heads. 

With just over eight minutes remaining in their back and forth semifinal matchup with ETSU, the Terriers watched as their ten point lead had been trimmed to four, and could feel the momentum …

Quarterfinal Action at the Big South Conference

No March tournament has the potential for more madness than the Big South Conference Tournament (being held in Buies Creek, North Carolina on the campus of Campbell University). Parity is the name of the game in the Big South as the top eight teams in the conference were separated by a mere three games in the regular season. It would not be a shock if any of the remaining teams win the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Big South storylines to follow:

Radford tries to repeat as tournament champion but comes in limping. They lost three of their final five games. The Highlanders will lean heavily on Ed Polite Jr and Carlik Jones (last year’s Big South Tournament …
