    Have insomnia? Watch the Dookies!

    by Ken Pomeroy on Saturday, November 29, 2003


    In the 1st half, Liberty commits 14 turnovers and makes 7 field goals, and yet Duke only leads by 7. They haven't been able to put away Detroit, Pacific, or Liberty until the 2nd half. There's something not quite right with this Duke team, what is it?

    Charlotte 50, Syracuse 29, Halftime. I can't imagine too many defending champs have had a worse opening half of basketball than Syracuse tonight.

    Did Kansas Choke?

    by Ken Pomeroy on Saturday, November 22, 2003


    Before the real games begin, I need to tie up a loose end from last year. Luck plays a role in all sports, but it seems more so in college hoops. It's one of the reasons the sport is so unpredictable. Sure, talent and coaching are overwhelming factors in determining which teams succeed and which teams don’t. But wacky bounces and lucky breaks are what make things interesting. Along those lines, last year’s championship game, in which Syracuse beat Kansas 81-78, presented an opportunity to examine just how luck plays a role in a game between two nearly equal teams.

    Kansas had one of the worst free throw shooting performances in championship history, making only 12 out of 30, which can be cited as one of the reasons they lost. Was their awful shooting simply bad luck? At first glance, one would think free throws are skill - and they…

    The Greatness of the Golden Grizzlies

    by Ken Pomeroy on Monday, November 17, 2003


    Ok, I am going to try the blog thing again this year, with a little more effort hopefully. The hardest thing about doing this is coming up with witty titles for the entries. I can't even come up with a title for the blog itself. The title for this entry is a reference to Oakland University, who looked impressive (or must have based on the scores) in the just completed BCA classic. The Golden Grizzlies easily beat San Diego and Illinois Chicago before falling to Xavier. Looking at their web site, their entire team is from the Detroit area, which is kind of cool if you are from Detroit.
