Hit Me With Your Best Shot

You know, it’s just not safe to be a basketball team playing in a major conference anymore. Jim Boeheim had it figured out: I’ll pay some schmoe from the lowly Colonial a marginal sum to come to my house. I get a victory, play my bench, and cut Ol Bruiser Flint a check. After all, it’s a tried and true method…heck, it was abo0ut Jnauary 10 of last season before I played a road game.

What could possibly go wrong?

Pardon me while I laugh. Major conference schools have done everythnig they can to keep the field titled in their favor, including creating a concept that, in its base form, is really blood money.

Too bad they are now realizing a lesson we could all learn: things aren’t always as they appear on the surface.

Yo Frankie Elegar put up 27 and 10. Bash Mason chipped in 14 points and five assists. Dom Mejia scored 16 points. And Chaz Crawford had a huge garbage bucket, following a missed three pointer.

Team effort.

Side note for those that care: former Delaware head dude David Henderson has been spotted at random CAA games this season. His new gig: scouting for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Dooks dropped another one last night, falling at home to Youngstown State 78-58.

You can’t lose by 20 at home to the Penguins.

Honestly, I don’t get it.

Interesting side note: the CAA is 3-4 this season against the Big East. Drexel has beaten Villanova and Syracuse. ODU whomped Georgetown. The losses were a trifecta by Nor’Easter (Syracuse, Pitt, and UConn) and JMU losing to Georgetown.

Every single game was a roadie.

Think Boeheim has a new motivational ploy for Friday? The Rangemen get Hofstra.

Pardon me while I snicker and act like a 20-year old: And we took your money, too !!!!

Tonight, VCU hosts Delaware in the conference opener for both teams. I think that’s about all we need to say about that.

Towson travels to Georgetown as well, and Georgia State heads to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes.

  1. Dear Mr. Litos,

    Would you please give me an email address for your agent, TriadU? I have not found any contact info on their web site, and I have a couple of screenplays I’d like to query them about.

    Thank you

  2. Cmon dude…give the Cuse some credit for playing good CAA teams. Had they not played them, you would be ripping them for that.

    It’s not like Boeheim just went in blindly and assumed that all teams from the CAA were bad. Believe it or not, he actually does play decent competition, whether or not they leave the state of NY.

  3. Good point. He plays them, which is more than can be said for others.
