  • Va Tech’s now shoe-in for the tournament, while Miami may not even be on the NIT bubble. #Hurricanes #Hokies

Pens were really untouchable tonight in Pittsburgh!

NHL Update:

  • Vigilant Pens protect their nest in the Met with the skill and dedication of Eliot Ness by once again busting up the Blue Jackets’ questionable racket. #BlueJackets #Penguins
  • Boston refuses to lose, but are they shooting their wad a tad early; in any event, their march toward primo playoff positioning continues in March. #Panthers #Bruins
  • Hertl’s heroics propel aggressive and hungry Sharks over the Canadien hurdle. #Sharks #Canadiens
  • Hot shot Lightning look uncommonly mild against the largely mediocre Wild. #Wild #Lightning

Russell wears his emotions on his sleeve, and wears his opponents down to the nub.

NBA Update:

  • Pacers travel up the road to ‘Ol Milwaukee to face the Bucks and exhibit the dreaded deer in headlights look in a rather dreary second half siesta. #Pacers #Bucks

I’ll go with Bagley III at No. V

NBA Update:

  • Rocky road for the Rockets, when LBJ goes inside and has his way. #Rockets #Lakers
  • Sixers escape the Heat with some fancy bobbing and waving from sometime marginal Boban Marjanovic. #Heat #Sixers
  • Bucks up the ante in the East with a strong stiff arm of the onrushing Celts. #Bucks #Celtics

Another “Shoe”-related mess in college basketball engulfs the big boys …

NCAAM Update:

  • Yikes! Shock and awful grimacing in Durham, as the Zionic man blows out his Nikes. #TarHeels #BlueDevils
  • Sweet revenge is a long time coming for Pat Ewing, against the team that broke his heart. #Wildcats #Hoyas
  • This looks like a classic sleeper of a squad biding their time in Syracuse; watch out for this team to do what Boeheim is known for … getting into that mesmerizing zone, and grinding out ugly, but effective, victories over soft favorites. #Cardinals #Orange

Beilein makes a bee line for the locker room

NCAA Update:

  • Puke: another impressive as hell ACC road win for Duke…#BlueDevils #Cardinals
  • Michigan lacks staying power against pesky Penn St. when Beilein is stung with an ejection. #Wolverines #Nittany Lions
  • Kentucky caves in to Kavell at the buzzer. #Tigers #Wildcats
  • A very lean (and mean) Cassius guides the Spartans as they stick it to the Badgers in Madison. #Spartans #Badgers
  • 25 years or so after UM’s Jalen Rose, another Jalen rose to the challenge at another UM as Boilermaker bubbles evaporate late against the Terps. #Terrapins #Boilermakers

The Dean of basketball admits: “Playing for the Lakers, ain’t that a kick in the head”

You’re never too high and mighty to double dribble.

NBA Update:

  • Heat should be all over the officials after Miami gets mistreated in The Town; yes, even big important stars like Durant occasionally look spastic and use two hands. #Heat #Warriors
  • Lakers and LeBron just can’t compete with Embiid point scoring greed; baby triple double by LBJ doesn’t stand in the way of Joel’s very telling 37, 14 and 14. #Sixers #Lakers
  • Dallas learns how to dig deep with Doncic, not Dirk. #TrailBlazers #Mavericks

Is it live, or is it Memphis?

NBA Update:

  • Portland may still be 11 over .500, there’s no denying they are weak underneath … just like Italy in World War II … Whiteside definitely punctured that soft underbelly, going 11-12. #Trailblazers #Heat
  • Does this win mean we can no longer ask, in the spirit of that old Memorex tag line, “is it live, or is it a Memphis Grizzly”. #Grizzlies #Timberwolves
  • Even without big deal Kyrie on the road in hostile Quicken Loans, this Boston-Cleveland tussle was definitely a case of the haves vs. the Cav-nots. #Celtics #Cavaliers
  • LeBron’s still looking rather weak, and the Pace-cars run circles around the stuck in the mud Lakers with Myles and Bo Bo. #Lakers #Pakers
  • When it comes to the All-star game, do not forsake Blake; this guy is having an absolutely huge year. #Pistons #Knicks
