I was here at the casa listening to the Vols grind one out against Chattanooga. That is, I was pacing and cussing – almost ready to get in the fetal position – as Tennessee crawled back from a deficit, missed a bunch of free throws, and hung on for dear life to win, 66-63. They hadn’t yet won when word came through on the Summitt board that fourth-ranked Duke had been upset by unranked Hartford. That’s the third major upset in six days.
The CBS College Sports announcer doing the play-by-play commented that the women’s game is becoming like the men’s game in that, on any given night, one team can beat another regardless of the ranking. A true and exciting statement.
THEN. Checked the scoreboard as the Tennessee game ended and #24 Old Dominion was about to beat #11 Virginia! Final score was 78-70, ODU.
Very interesting. And the Cal-Rutgers game doesn’t start til 8 p.m. It’s a free-for-all, y’all. I like it. (As long as the Vols don’t lose)
