Gotta go with Ricky Henderson because he stole all those bases. :)

I watched most of the game. O'Neill was able to get free to shoot just by being faster in a straight line than his defender. No fakes or spins. Just flat out speed and an accurate shot

Those guys are crazy Natsie. No regard for life or limb. LOL.

Speaking of crazy, Hoshoryu won his first Sumo title.  And will likely be promoted to Ozeki. 
He looked really emotional after and almost cried. Which is probably a no-no.

With defeat, to St KIlda, reigning Premiers Geelong fail to make the post-season, for only the second time in 17 years...   Few would have predicted it, at the start of the season...

not going to start the NCAA mens hoops thread yet, but Yale scheduled at Gonzaga and at Kansas this year. Also 2 other ot-of-conference tournament teams: Colgate in a tournament in Moncton and @ Vermont. At Loyola Marymount and at Santa Clara.

Penn plays Kentucky at Wells Fargo Center. And they have Auburn and Houston back to back on the road. Talk about three beat downs.

St. John’s will be very interesting.  Almost a whole new roster for Pitino.  A few of his Iona guys as transfers and best two players probably from the Ivy League. And a top recruit. And a partridge in a pear tree.
