I generally don’t follow college hoops. Then again, my alma mater generally doesn’t upset UConn in the NCAA tourney. Congrats and good luck against Western Kentucky!

Anybody know what is up with Johnson? It seemed like he was injured near the end of the game, or least they were talking about it during the telecast. It certainly seemed like he was injured as his defense wasn’t very good at the end although maybe that was the only time that UConn attacked him off the dribble.
It was amazing that UConn kept giving Pomare that 15 foot jumper from the left side of the key. You figure that once he made 4 or 5 of those they would have started to guard him especially since UConn was so much bigger and USD didn’t really use a post player.
Hey, Didi … anyone ever tell you that you don’t know squat about college hoops? I sure hope you don’t end up beatin’ me!
Question: “C. Keach” … who are you?
Fick and DaVanon officially released.
Kind of surprised that Davanon got released. That leaves their outfield very left-handed until Headley gets called up (Edmonds, Giles, Gerut or McAnulty). I think that pretty ensures that Crabbe makes the team as he’s a switch hitter and he might be the only player on the Opening Day active roster that can play CF. If Crabbe makes the team, there is only two open bench spots — figure one will go to Gerut or McAnulty while the other would be either Stansberry or Rodriguez (can’t be Robles as he hits left-handed as well).
CY with 3 nice innings so far …
4 … I’ve seen Hairston play CF, so Crabbe is not “the only player on the Opening Day active roster that can play CF” … observations matter just as much as the historical record, imo … (ie. it takes both “scouting” and “statistical analysis” to see the full picture of what the status of a player and/or team is).
Lots of good/interesting posts by TK @ UT recently …
… including this update on Hampson: “Bud Black doesn’t expect left-hander Justin Hampson on a mound for at least seven days. He said an MRI revealed shoulder tendinitis in Hampson’s shoulder.”
5 … Iguchi with a 2-run HR off Royal’s starter (Bannister) … Padres up 2-1 after top of 5th …
Jake update …
