Mich St stuns Purdue 68-65.
Virginia up next.
Who’s watchin with me, huh? Where the basketball fans?
Virginia out fast up 8 but Tech battling back. 13-11 with 11+ in the 1st.
You want me to link you - just say and I’ll do it.
Tech on 11-0 run and 3 up through 11 minutes.
OMG now 17-0 run. What’s happening? about 8 on the clock.
We’ll see how this goes by the Half, but UVA is not a team built for big comebacks.
Just a little aside here - Ponds scores 44 as Johnnies with 3rd straight. Can they make it through to the Big East Tourney finals and capture an NCAA birth - then run to the final 4? It’s quite a thought, isn’t it?
Cavaliers working hard cut it to 4 with 22.2 remaining to Half
OOOOOOOH! a big 3 ball by tech sends them smiling into the locker room 7 up.
OH KNOES! Tech dropped the ball - Cavs lead by 3 in OT, 3:30 to play.
Tech not quitting - 54-54 with a little over 2 to go. It isn’t over yet.
Another 3 by UGinia. 57-54. Under a minute now - VT Timeout.
VTech game but can they come back from these heavy body blows one more time?
Slipping away now, folks, but WAIT, back to a 1 point deficit and now take the lead with 6 seconds in OT. WHOA! Down 60-56 they score 5 unanswered!
AND WIN IT! 61-60 - another correct prediction by me.
Now here is going to be an interesting ranking Monday.
Does, Virginia nonetheless leapfrog over Cats. Do the Spartans vault to #1 - Does Xavier move up? Let’s not rush Monday, but I can’t wait to see the voting.
PS: and let’s not forget Cincinnati, who plays today.
