Game Notes

Texas should have taken the final shot with two seconds to spare, so as to enable a rebound in case of a miss...Mustafa Shakur looks like Jaleel White...Kentucky and Louisville each played but a half of quality basketball in a good, but strange, game...Chris Rodgers and Mustafa Shakur have a chemistry that Salim Stoudamire and Mustafa Shakur lack...Travis Diener is t-o-u-g-h. But he's also Marquette's only big-time scoring threat...Though I am no fan of Digger Phelps, the trio of Chris Fowler, Steve Lavin and Phelps is significantly more enjoyable to watch than was the trio of Fowler, Lavin and Majerus...Salim Stoudamire played the role of team cheerleader with class. In public, Stoudamire has significantly improved his attitude...Wake Forest's victory will put an end to the "What's wrong with Wake" discussion that has been slowly brewing in Winston-Salem...Lavin, speaking of a Wildcat senior: "He's been at Kentucky for so long, I swear he's on the GI bill"...For more than five second half minutes, Lute Olson's lineup included both Daniel Dillon and Brett Brielmaier...The pundits (e.g. Katz and Doyel) were right about Patrick Sparks...Could Olson be slowing down the go-go 'Cats? During the Preaseason NIT, ESPN's play-by-play men argued Arizona forced Wake Forest into a low-scoring affair. But today the network's commentators suggested it was Marquette that compelled Arizona to play slow-tempo basketball...Wish I could have watched both Texas-Wake Forest and Arizona-Marquette at the same time. As it was, I missed much of Texas' tough play. But I saw enough of P.J. Tucker to understand why Rick Barnes' club is finding success early...Tom Crean's expressions suggest he can be both excited/nervous and calm/detached at the same time. Weird...Hassan Adams is invaluable to Arizona, if only because he is the 'Cat most likely to draw fouls and get to the line.
