Big East Tournament: Day Two

Rob Frozena is the Air Hockey Champion and tells Mo Acker he has short, stubby arms.....

Kudos to MUTV Sports for the great video.

Rosiak has his preview here.

From - You want mental toughness? Look no further than the Golden Eagles. At one point this season, Marquette won three straight overtime road games in the Big East. Lazar Hayward is one of the most underrated players in the conference, having scored double-digit points in 28 of the team’s 30 games this year.

Notes from yesterday: I'm pretty happy Keno Davis isn't our coach. Playing an up-and-down style is one thing, but playing ole defense in the BEast? Yeah, good luck with that.

And Providence isn't interested in your charity. Seton Hall did everything they could to lose that game last night, just like Marquette did everything to give away the game @ Providence. Thanks but no thanks, says Keno.

If you didn't see the end of the Rutgers - 'Nati game, let me pose this question to you: if, say, the game was decided on a foul call with 1.8 seconds left when Lance Stephenson was bailed out on an out-of-control drive to the hoop, who do you think was the head of the officiating crew? Two guesses, max.

Rubie whiffed on the song for the UCONN - St. John's game. In hindsight, the pick should've been "Quitter," by The Toadies.

And following up with Rubie's post from yesterday, here's your Big East Tournament ... In Song for Day 2 (of 16) ...

Notre Dame vs. Seton Hall - "Layla," by Eric Clapton. Actually, just the coda of "Layla," for the two Good Fellas working the sidelines. Loser gets to meet Jimmy Hoffa.

Cincinnati vs. Louisville - "Medicated Goo," by Traffic. It has nothing to do with the game, and everything to do with Coach Pitino's ding-a-ling. Only one way to get that burning to stop, Slick Rick: a nice salve. (I've also heard that Tea for Dong can help.)

USF vs. Georgetown - "Street Spirit [Fade Out]," by Radiohead. It's not entirely fair, since Georgetown pasted Cincinnati this past weekend, but the Hoyas are limpin' to the finish line. If they didn't have that win over Duke, they might be languishing in Joe Lunardi's Bubble Hell with us.

St. John's vs. Marquette - "The Waiting," Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Waiting for the game to start, waiting for to load the live box score, waiting for Homer to tell me what actually happened on a play, and, most importantly, waiting for Selection Sunday if we drop this one to the Johnnies.

And last but not least, The Jump Around guy gets a feature story...

FYI - for those that are stuck at work and looking for a link to the game feed, MUScoop has 1 posted....and it's f*ing money!

Wow! This site is like the double-mint gum of web sites! Not only does it provide your viewing needs, it also has a live in-game chat. It's highly entertaining watching all of these degenerates freak out about the over under on the G'town/USF game. Further, many were hitting on the next game of St.Johns/MU.....everyone was picking MU. That scares me!

Love the Tea For Dong reference.

It really looks like this Marquette team doesn't care right now. It's the first time I've thought that all year.

We survived, barely. We shot really well today, but the uncharacteristic turnovers killed us. We have to play much better, particularly on defense to win tomorrow. Regardless, feeling much better about tournament inclusion.

I was stuck with Gamecast today, which was crazy. It seemed like either a make or a turnover every time with like no misses. One of those edge-of-your-seat gamecasts too.

Jump around!?!?! Really MU?!?! Maybe you can start using the bud song next(obviously sub "when you say Golden've said it all!"). Seriously??? JUMP AROUND??? Get some creativity for x-mas next year. Pathetic.
