Wednesday Basketball Recap
by Bob Balfe
We cashed in early in the NBA as the Knicks finally got a back to back win this season against the Sixers. We lost with Tulane as SMU were men among boys in the second half getting to every loose ball and grabbing tons of offensive rebounds. This team could make some noise in the tournament. We cashed in late night as New Mexico won outright despite the refs putting UNLV in the bonus early in the second half and New Mexico not going to the line at all. New Mexico and Cincinnati were the only two teams in the country that did not allow 70 points in any games this year. New Mexico gives up 69 and the streak continues. Points in the paint were not even close, but UNLV scored a lot from the foul line. On the road this team would not get the calls they did tonight. I will take 2 of 3 every night. Back in the morning strong!
