bite me

-- Connecticut beat writer Gavin Keefe begins his piece on the Big East by comparing unbalanced schedules to foot fungus. And his column only gets better from there...Were you aware that of the 37 Big East games played to date, 22 were decided by seven points or less?

-- Kendall Gill wants Bruce Weber's club to focus on winning a national championship rather than running the table during the regular season. (NBA) Millions later, Gill's Final Four loss still irks the former Fighting Illini star.

-- Does the name Zygis Sestokas sound familiar? It will next year. The 6'5" high school shooting guard just set a new North Carolina state record by scoring, in a single game, 76 points on 14 for 21 shooting from behind the arc and 13 of 17 shooting from 2-point range. (He also notched eight free throws). Not too shabby.

-- The indefatigable Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette writes up the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay's huge win and the tightening Horizon League race. Attendance for last night's game was 8,072 strong. Many wore T-shirts that said "Bite me," referencing last year's shouting match between UWM assistant Tony Jones and UWGB coach Tod Kowalczyk. Jones had told Kowalczyk to “Bite me” three times.

-- Luciana Chavez of the Greensoboro (NC) News & Record finds Virginia Tech singing a certain Toby Keith song. But even the 2004-2005 Hokies are no match for the 2004-2005 Blue Devils.
