meet the new boss

-- D.J., son of Darryl, Strawberry has torn his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will be out the rest of the season. A tough break for Gary Williams, but one that is (hopefully) unrelated to this blogger's decision to yesterday relocate to the greater Washington, D.C. (and College Park) area.

-- As of Monday, every team among the NCAA's Top 50 field-goal percentage squads had a winning record. Reader favorite Northern Iowa checked in at 52% from the field.

-- Gregg Doyel plays on Joe Crawford's words. Kentucky's opponents will no doubt look to exploit the Crawford affair for recruiting purposes. Here's thinking they'll have little success.

-- Billy fought the (Acie) Law and the Law lost. Given Acie's play has been excellent of late, Gillispie's decision to bench him for an entire half in the Aggies' loss to Texas-Tech was as mysterious then as it is now. Gillispie isn't elaborating, saying only, "[Law] didn't do anything wrong. He just wasn't playing to the level I thought he could play." Fair enough. But coach just cost Texas A&M, a potential bubble team, a victory. Here's hoping that Billy -- as is usually the case -- is proven right about this gutsy call.

-- Pity Lorenzo Romar. He has to find minutes for Brandon Roy. In my eyes, Tre Simmons' development bodes very, very well for the Huskies come March. Now if only Washington could go to a four-guard lineup. Auburn or Villanova, here the Huskies come.
