get the feeling that Young would be frustrating to play with.  He just runs toward the guy with the ball with his hands out asking for the ball.  He really doesn't move without it, at all.  It looks like his teammates feel like they are "required" to pass the ball to him.  At times he has the effect of an extra defender.

I have heard (anecdotally) that yesterday and today are two of the most popular days of the year for men to get vasectomies.  The reason for this is that they then have an excuse to sit on the couch all weekend watching basketball.

As with all anecdotal "facts" it may not be true, but I really want it to be.

When I lived in Eugene, a local urologist would run ads before March Madness for “Snip City”.

For those of you not from Oregon, they often refer to Portland as Rip City based on something one of the Blazer announcers used to say.

It may be a case of perception creating reality, but I bet there is a huge spike in those appointments this time of year.

As of this moment they lead in OT, close game.

I got the sense ppl were more disgusted with their style, specifically Trae Young's style. I picked OU to win, so clearly I thought they belonged anyway...

Kansas meanwhile is around 10pts down to PENN!!!
