Question of the Day: How much was this basketball player paid to fix this game in the Greek league?

How much was this player paid to fix the game?

Former Arizona State player Jermaine Marshall tied up this quarterfinal Greek league game by scoring on his own basket, as time expired.

Seriously!? Sure mental lapses happen, but it is the end of the game, a playoff game too boot. You suddenly forgot which basket was yours as time expired? No, the explanation I can come up with is Jermaine suddenly realized he was about to have a couple broken knee caps and the only thing he could do is take matters into his own hands. Jermaine’s team Kifisia lost in overtime, 108-103, no shit, no way they were coming back from that.

Though from what I have seen from Greek league basketball fans, I am not sure he was any safer…

Gonzaga is dancing again, and that’s a good thing

 

imageGonzaga, punched their ticket to the dance for the 18th straight year and that is a good thing. I can’t say exactly, why, but I have always been a huge Gonzaga fan. Perhaps, I just like a good underdog, or the number of Canadians they have had, but no it is more than that. It’s the fact that they were the little guy, they got their taste of the big time and instead of saying we had a nice run, or looking for greener pastures, they decided to stay there among the elites and that is exactly what they have done, made their own program the big time. And that is something I admire. I would have hated to see their consecutive streak that ranks them among the Dukes and Michigan states ended by some bullshit RPI ranking, but once again they did the right thing and took matters into their own hands.

Sidenote: I knew there (Editor’s Note: The wrong use of “their” was used previously by Squire. Gritty couldn’t stand for it) was know way Mark Few was letting them lose this game and that’s why I bet the Zags, moving the HardNo House to 1 and 0. Go me! And go Zags!

yes Gus, the Slipper Still Fits, and it’s not going to stop fitting.
