Hot/cold Basketball…High Goal Basketball and other stuff

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 09-01-2014


Hot and cold basketball is playing out in Madison, WI….Extremely cold weather for anything, but Bo Ryan’s basketball team is hot in Kohl Center. They went to 16 – 0 last night after beating a good Illinois team, 95 – 70. The Illini is now 13 – 3. The Big Ten appears to be the basketball conference this year. The Badgers are now about 38 straight in Kohl Center. Number 3 son and his sweetie are season ticket holders up there. I know they are enjoying the “hot” season during the cold season, huh, son?….

High goals…..The University of New Mexico Lobos played the Wyoming Cowboys last night in Laramie, Wyoming beating the Cowboys 72 – 69 in overtime. During halftime one of the Lobo team members saw someone messing with the goals.  The Lobo 7 foot center noticed when he took the floor that the goal had grown some during the half time festivals. Sure enough, the goal at the Lobo end of the arena had grown to 10’3″. Amazing…..Does that happen often? Well, it was a conference game!!!!!

Arizona Basketball…. The Wildcats are number one in the nation right now and playing ex-Lobo coach Steve Alford tonight at UCLA….Should be a very good game…I am pulling for the Wildcats ’cause no. 1 granddaughter and no. 1 son in law are season ticket holders to the Arizona games and are big time Arizona fans. I imagine their home will be rocking tonight watching the game on TV. I’m here to tell you, some of those games get pretty wild in a living room or two around Tucson. Hope no injuries are suffered tonight (Now that’s a joke, kind’a…)

ESPN3.com…..What a worthless place to have a basketball game around my house. The Lobo – Wyoming game was moved from ESPN to this ESPN3.com. I have the computer needed in order to view that broadcast ( that is if you can call it a broadcast) however, you cannot be on Century Links and Direct TV and get it. So, I listened to the game on the radio. I miss our local station broadcasting the games anyway…..Go away, ESPN, if you can’t do any better than that. So much of the Mountain West is small market TV that we will never be able to do much on ESPN or any other major network…..More later, Pete
