Hoosiers Stunned, OKC Rolls, And A Wrestling Icon Passes
Its another jam packed Wednesday on the Mac Attack as we get closer to Duke-Carolina part 2 and the SoCon Tournament this weekend.You know, if the SoCon is your kind of thing.My fight with allergies continues today as I took medication that I’m pretty sure is on the MLB banned substance list.Hopefully the powers that be look the way around here like Bud Selig and company did for about a decade
Down Goes IU:Number 2 Indiana fell at home on Senior Night to #14 Ohio State 67-58.DeShaun Thomas had 18 points and eight rebounds,while Aaron Craft added15 points, four rebounds, four assists and four steals.They combined for the first nine points in a late 11-2 run that sealed the Hoosiers fate.The most shocking part came after the game when Indiana, a team many feel is the odds on favorite to win it all and steeped in tradition, cut down the nets after the loss to celebrate their share of the Big Ten title.The ceremony which included Big Ten Championship t-shirts lasted until after 1am.Tom Crean’s post game press conference did not get started till 1:40am.We looked it up and the 2012 Indy 500 didn’t last as long as the Hoosiers lame celebration. Come on Indiana, your better than that.
Thunder Over The Lakers: For the 2nd straight game the Thunder knocked off a team from LA, this time it was the Lakers 122-105.Russell Westbrook had 37 points and 10 rebounds, Kevin Durant had 26 points,9 rebounds,and 5 assists, and Serge Ibaka punched Metta World Peace in the cherries 4 times.Ok the last one didn’t happen but part of you wishes it did.The Thunder are now within 2.5 games of the Spurs in the West.Kobe led the way for the Lakers with 30 despite his elbow giving him issues.Steve Nash added 20 and Dwight Howard had 6 points and 16 rebounds.LA is now 2.5 games behind Utah for the 8th seed.They do have winnable games against the Hornets,Raptors, and Magic in the next week but dropping any game right now for them could be the beginning of the end for a team we thought would be the biggest threat to the Heat when the season began
