Around The Blogosphere: The Night Before The MarathonPosted by nvr1983 on November 16th, 2010
It was a relatively quiet night before ESPN’s 24 Hours of Hoops Marathon, which you can follow on the original live blog of the event, so we do not have a ton of games to recap from tonight, but there were a few notable games and notable news to pass along. As always, if you’re interested in participating in this feature, e-mail us at email@example.com.
- #7 Kansas 79, Valparaiso 44: “Now many will point to an early season nonconference game as something that should be taken with a grain of salt. Maybe that’s true, but right now the Jayhawks look like a team that could have a higher ceiling than the group a year ago. For those counting, that’s the group a year ago that had two lottery picks and the winningest Jayhawk in history who also happens to be playing in the NBA.” (Rock Chalk Talk)
- #18 Georgetown 69, Tulane 53: “A solid early season victory for the Georgetown Hoyas, who won their fifth consecutive home opener in the John Thompson III era, soundly defeating Tulane 69-53. Austin Freeman led the Hoyas with 23 points on 9-15 shooting. Jason Clark had Georgetown’s most complete performance again, notching 17 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double double. Vee Sanford came off the bench and scored 10 points in his first action of the season.” (Casual Hoya)
