Kelvin Sampson's Days At Indiana May End On A Brian Butch Banked In Three

Sampson gets banked The Big Lead says "sources" are whispering that Kelvin Sampson will be fired sooner rather than later, and potentially this Friday. Fitting that his tenure, filled with illegal phone calls and lies, will end on a called bank shot from 24 ft courtesy of Brian Butch. Greg Couch of the Chicago Sun Times wrote: "Recruiting is a slimy business. Sampson is the king of it." As for the Badgers, a typical win where in retrospect your trying to figure out how they just did that. No flash, just efficiency and some hustle points. Wisconsin 68, Indiana 66

Pat Knight now 901 behind his dad Before his first home game as head coach, Pat Knight's face said 'nervous as hell.' He seemed to go the entire first five minutes of the game without talking. That's OK, though, Alan Voskuil did it for him with 30 points. Big win for the Red Raiders, who will need a lot more of these to have any chance of dancing. Bigger for Pat, who can take a small monkey off his back. The younger Knight joked afterwards, "He was waiting for me in the locker room. It feels good, believe me, to get the first one but that's only one. I'm still only 1-2. Now if I was 3-0, I'd think about retiring."  Texas Tech 84, Kansas St 75

UConn't stop them
Five straight wins faced seven straight last night Stoors, CT and the longer streak won out. You do not want to play the Connecticut Huskies right now. They've found their point guard in A.J. Price who's had as an eight game stretch as anyone in the country. Thabeet blocked six more shots and now the Huskies are looking at a very high NCAA tournament seed two months after a spot was in doubt. UConn 84, Notre Dame 74

No MVC Title, yet Drake could have already clinched the Missouri Valley regular season championship last night. It's a wonder why the Salukis haven't played at this level all year. Southern Illinois 65, Drake 62

There's a decent chance I would've had a heart attack if I had seen Butch take that shot last night.  Thank goodness it went in.
