I had a lovely time, thanks for asking. Zipped up to Northampton to listen to the fabulous Patty Larkin, got to hang with my college friends, eat breakfast waffles, head to Boston and visit with my mom, the crawl my way through the snow back. Then I… what? You were asking about South Carolina’s road trip? Where are they going? :-)
So, yah, it’s kind of a big deal. I’m feeling like it’s more of a big deal for the Gamecocks. They need to know they can beat UConn. They’ve got the talent – can they play with the offensive and defensive discipline needed to conquer the Huskies? We shall see.
As for UConn, a nice round 100 would be lovely, of course, but what they really want is a shot at National Championship #12. We all know they’re playing on a razor’s edge – and injury, foul trouble, an off night or a team that’s supper hot and bob’s you uncle, your waiting for next season.
Pop some popcorn and pull up a chair…Until them, indulge in some work-time procrastination:
