Jimmy V classic
Two of the best deals in town are the Coaches for Cancer and Jimmy V classic. Two college bball games, usually with good teams, for only 10 bucks a ticket. Yesterday I went down to the Jimmy V to see the talked about match up between OJ Mayo and Derrick Rose of Memphis. Now I cant completely complaing because the game went into overtime, but I was thoroughly unimpressed with both freshman and their teams. I was expecting to see a Carmelo like performance where in crunch time the stars would take over the game but that never happened. While they both showed flashes of greatness, both have a long way to go from here. I know it is early in the season but I expected more from the hype.
Sidenote: Has anyone been watching Miami U's bball this year. They keep playing good teams tough (ie Louisville) and beat Xavier a ranked opponent. Plus Side Garry is their star player and he's actually pretty good.
Double sidenote: I got sent this little nugget of humor. http://jamphat.com/rap/
