Creighton beat Wichita State, 68-65, to capture the Missouri Valley Tournament title, and both Bill Raftery and Tim Brando got extremely excited during the final minute of play. After Malcolm Armstead nailed a 3-pointer to pull the Shockers within one, Raftery dropped an onions reference. The Blue Jays scored for a three-point bulge, and Wichita State’s 3-pointer to send the game into overtime misfired, prompting Brando to quote Judy Garland: “meet me in St. Louis, meet me at the fair.”
Biggest game Saturday? Georgetown vs. Villanova. Next? Missouri vs. Tennessee.
Happy Holadays indeed.
The rankings have a lot more to do with where teams are seeded, and Virginia and Louisville are on the rise.
Love apparently doesn’t care for Chandler’s comments.
What a feeble effort from LA.
