Quote of the day
"Everybody in the world knew that ball was coming to me. I wanted to take that shot." -- UConn guard Kemba Walker, after his “nothing but net” jump shot at the buzzer beat Pitt by two in the Big East tournament
Amare Stoudemire followed the lead of Dwight Howard and picked up his 16th technical foul last night, earning him a furlough day on Sunday. Plan accordingly.
I probably could have scrounged up a quote related to the Heat-Lakers game, but a quick survey didn’t find anything obvious – so, in deference to the pending NCAA tournament, I went with the hometown hero (from the perspective of RotoGuru World Headquarters), Kemba Walker.
Speaking of the “toonament”, the RotoGuru Market Madness Contest has been launched. Rules will be the same as last year, and there really isn’t much to do until the brackets are announced, but if you want to register now and review the contest format, be my guest. The one potential difference relates to the four opening round games (or whatever they’ll call them this year.) Two of those games will feature the last four at-large teams in the field, so they won’t feed into a 1/16 first round matchup. The results of those games still won’t count in the scoring, but some of those teams may factor into conference basket units, so I’ll have to work out those pricing and scoring mechanics after I see how the actual bracket is laid out. I’ll discuss that on Monday.
