At 7-foot-7, Everyone Looks Like a Shrimp


How terrified does Tyler Hansbrough look? Later, he would dunk on UNC-Ashville’s Kenny George, all 7-foot-7 of him. Also, George wears size 26 shoes.

Dayton 92, Rhode Island 83 – It’s not everyday that an A-10 game matters, but both were ranked, and thanks to Brian Roberts’ 23 (and the team’s 62 percent free throw shooting) the Flyers are 13-1. Keep an eye on Dayton – freshman stud Chris “Top Flight” Wright is still dinged up and only played eight minutes.

Tennessee 85, Mississippi 83 – Wasn’t on TV, but ESPNews cut in to the final minute, and the Rebels totally had a chance to win this one on the road, but it missed four put-backs, and then the front-end of a one-and-one. Tennessee scored with four seconds left for the win. On our In/Out list we had Chris Warren in (24 points) and Chris Lofton out (10), and we look forward to the rematch in the SEC finals.

Memphis 99, ECU 58 – Next real game: Jan 26 against Gonzaga. Until then, 30+ point wins!

Vanderbilt 90, South Carolina 83 – The unbeaten season will finally get back-to-back SEC tests – at Kentucky, then at Tennessee.

Arizona State 64, Arizona 59, OT – The Wildcats are about to run into some trouble in the Pac-10 because they essentially have five players and no bench. ASU has James Harden (26 points), who is pretty damned good.

Because you want to see it first!
