What a great game, Mizzou vs Oklahoma. If only Gilbert could have, you know, made more than one of his 15 or so shots. I gotta say the Sonners will be playing in the final now, because I don't see Kent St or Indiana (at this point in that game, the Hoosiers appear to have it locked up) beating them.
Now I hope the Tigers can follow up with a good regular season next year.
Oklahoma played a hell of a game. Missouri could have played better. Paulding put on a hell of a game leading them back twice. Oh well. Gilbet's shooting and the free throw shooting did them in. Sooners showed that they were the best team. I dont know who will beat maryland though.... they looked really strong this last game.
Missouri will hopefully come back better next year. Paulding and Bryant will be sophmores. I hope Rush doesn't jump to the nba and sticks around for his senior year. I wonder how many calls quin snyder will receive for a different coaching job. Can anyone say cincinnati?
I am the JOBBER TO THE STARS. You better remember that.
Wouldn't it be weird to have an OU/KU final again? I'd like to see that, not just due to typical love for historic rematches common to most wrestling fans, but because I think KU would be easier to beat than Maryland--even though I know the Jayhawks would be obsessed with getting revenge for the Big 12 tournament final.
The thing that stuck out for me (besides how awesome Yao played) was the end of the second game Yao got on the mic and the whole stadium was expecting a huge speech and he spoke for like 15 seconds tops, I thought this was very funny.
