Wow. One of the guy cheerleaders for wsu looks like he got in between a sparty with a match and his couch last night. Either that or he got hit by a car there in LA.


Edit: for the record, I wasn't trying to say he's ugly, he's a perfectly normal looking dude with a nasty looking shiner and he's all swollen and bruised...

We TOOK our win. Burke made 30' shots. KU gave us nothing more than 1 backcourt violation. They even went 4 of 5 at the line down the stretch. We got no favors...

THIS is a choke job. Wichita St. is pissing down their leg in front of the entire nation. Sure Ohio is making some plays, but the shockers are throwing the ball around everywhere giving them chance after chance.

Is there any data on whether "momentum" exists?  Is a team that is on a run objectively more likely than their opponent to score next?  I know that game-to-game momenum is pretty overrated, but what about within a game?
