Mike: Michael Jordan is at the game. The question is, how much money does he have riding on the 8.5 point line? The other question (well, it’s more of a prayer) is, will MJ come run UNC into the ground like he did with every other franchise he’s touched since 1998?
Mike: Jon Scheyer just got himself trapped during an attempted heat check. Are white guys allowed to do heat checks?
Mike: Actually not the final update. Someone I’m with just noted that Tyler looks like a meerkat. It was a good one. Also, he does a Manning Face when he doesn’t get a call he expects.
FINAL UPDATE: no more updates – its annoying. See ya later.
Halftime Update from Mike: half our readership is in the room.
There is no way you can win a basketball game when you shoot approximately 85% and yet go into the half up one point. Gerald Henderson and Kyle Singler have already gone off. Each of them tends to blow up for approximately 7 minutes of each game, and brick threes/scream in anguish for the other 33. I have already convinced myself that there is no way we are winning this game. Barring a breakout second half from Brian Zoubek.
Despite all this negativity, the 30-different-angle-montage of Tyler bleeding all over the court that CBS showed did a great deal to cheer me up.
4:02 – Its just been announced that Ty Lawson will be playing in the game despite initial reports of his “injury.” Roy Williams pulling a classic move here. In fact, you could call this a Coach K-esque move. Two classy guys.
4:16 – Really CBS? REALLY!? We’re really interested in the Illinois State – Northern Iowa game. No, not the best rivalry in college sports. Fuck that! Midmajors are awesome!
(Game times will be reference from here) 9:44 – This looks like its going to be a good game, but its hard to tell considering that we haven’t watched the entire game. However, it certainly looks like UNC is much more athletic and should win this game, but if Kyle Singler stays hot Duke has a chance at the end.
9:25: an actual person we associate with says this: “I want to jerk off Gerald”
3:33: “Duke scores on 7 straight possessions” as a statistic leads to Greg Paulus shooting an awful three and swinging the momentum. Is there any more hatable athlete in college sports?
