One, Two, Three...Two Hundred and Seventy Nine

At some point in the near future, likely this evening in Newark, Delaware, Marcus Thornton will rise up twenty feet from the basket, kick a leg out in his uniquely balletic manner, and drain a three-point shot. It will be the 279th of his collegiate basketball career, the most by any William & Mary player in history.

We have correspondents standing by, ready to offer their insight.

if someone can find me the tribe/blue hens line, i'll give you some prognostic wisdom. can't get to those sites from work. guessing something like w&m -11.

Whitney said...

Lines go from Tribe -6.5 to -10.

delaware is awful, entering the night with a 3-14 record. they're coming off a home loss to a drexel team that the tribe beat by nearly 30. w&m has a score to settle after last year's caa final. i'm a little concerned about the tribe overlooking the hens, as northeastern and hofstra come to williamsburg in the next seven days, but that's only a little worry. w&m should win this handily. if you can find a -6.5 line, take it. they should cover 10, too.

I'm always on the lookout for a 6.9 point line.

I expected you to say "delaware are awful"--or would that only apply to their soccer team?

The DLC was in New Orleans with us. He's drinking the Tribe Kool-Aid, and Tony's as fired up about his team as he has ever been in Williamsburg.

Also, when we were exchanging work talk over some beers at Cooter Brown's, I told him the nonprofit where I work has been around for 61 years. He cut me off to interject, "Damn. Only 8 more years."

Not 4 years, but a lifetime, fellas.

I'm Burg bound in the next couple of weeks and was hoping to catch a game. No, really. Might have to settle for the NU game in beantown later in the month of February.

that'll be a good one, squeak. tough place to play for the tribe.

After Zman dropped a "Figiliano" in yesterday's post, I did some research on the game of Z. The Wikipedia page on it is sorely underwritten.

I just found a new vinyl spot. Bought three records (Ghostface, Brother Ali & Witchdoctor). Paid a grand total of $3.20. Pretty damn excited.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. Pengobatan tumor jinak di kepala
