Davidson Elite Eight: We're All Just Paying Rent In Stephen Curry's World
I didn't think it'd be possible for Stephen Curry to elevate his status, even with a win, but the face of this NCAA Tournament is now king of all things college basketball. Your rent check is due.
Never overlook the Gus Johnson factory, either. As sure as Curry is of hitting an open look, Gus is going to call an upset. Although from opening tip it didn't look like Davidson was much of an underdog and in the end it wasn't even close.
33 points (22 in the 2nd) on 11-22 shooting (6-11 from three) for a 73-56 Wildcats win. Best individual performance I've ever watched in the tournament and likely it'll stay that way for a long time. Worth pointing out his buddy Jason Richards had 13 assists and 0 Turnovers. That's how you win basketball games.
Stephen Curry's effort was almost enough to make me forget about the ass kicking in Houston this morning.
Memphis 92, Michigan St 74 I'm just happy it wasn't worse. It's hard to tell from my vantage point, but I'd like to think that John Calipari's team played as good a half of basketball as they or anyone has played all year in the 1st half. The Spartans might as well have just curled up in a little ball and sucked their thumbs while Derrick Rose, CDR and Joey Dorsey abused them. I'm not sure whether I'd rather watch that first half over again, or watch Notre Dame football come back on the JLS Spartans. Tough call. If Memphis can bottle up that first half again for Sunday, I don't think Texas has much of a chance, either.
Texas 82, Stanford 62 Like most of you I spent the first window watching the Stephen Curry show, but the few glimpses caught of this game it never seemed that big of a deficit. The only stat line needed to show: Cardinal starting backcourt was 2 of 17 from the field.
Kansas 72, Villanova 57 The pre-Final Four scrimmages continue. I shouldn't doubt Curry, but they may have finally met their match. Should get run off of Ford Field.
