21 and Lethal!!!! - Rockets win 21st consecutive game

Houston Chronicle sports columnist Richard Justice writes that T.Mac may now be in the lead for the NBA MVP after the Rockets won their 21st straight game... "They are a team in every sense of the word, a really good team, a smart, resourceful and gritty team. Don't lose sight of the bottom line with these Rockets. There's one other thing to know about them. They've got the NBA's Most Valuable Player. Care to argue? Don't. You don't have the facts on your side. Tracy McGrady defines greatness almost any way you want to define it." ...

  • Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist Jay Mariotti writes about Minnesota's Laettner-like shot to dump Indiana in the Big 10 tournament.... "From this point on, a sporting miracle will be known in American life as a ``Hoffarber.'' An athlete does not follow one otherworldly shot with another and not gain some sort of transcedent acknowledgement. What we saw on a memorable Friday night, I'd like to think we'll never see again in our lifetime." ...

  • Pittsburgh Post-Gazette sports columnist Ron Cook writes how West Virginia could not stop Georgetown's Roy Hibbert.... "If Hibbert comes inspired to play and stays out of foul trouble -- as he did last night-- don't be surprised if the Hoyas win the national championship." ...

  • Washington Post sports reporter Mike Wise writes about American University's first trip to the Big Dance... "Needing badly to make a free throw, or any shot for that matter, Derrick Mercer stared more at history than at the rim with 19 seconds left. Listed generously at 5 feet 9, American University's pint-size guard had struggled to find his shooting range and his confidence for 40 minutes -- much like the Eagles struggled to find their path to the NCAA Division I basketball tournament for 41 years." ...

  • Columbus Dispatch sports columnist Bob Hunter says Ohio State deserves to make the NCAA tournament... "If the Buckeyes had gotten a little better a little sooner, maybe if they had simply avoided a drubbing at Minnesota two weeks ago, they could have shrugged and walked away from Conseco Fieldhouse with a smug "just wait until next week." ...

    Richard Justice is a moron. You can argue that Adelman is the COY, but T-Mac is not in the top 3 for MVP.

    Bob Hunter...also stupid. The Buckeyes with their 13 losses belong in the NIT. Don't like it? Don't lose.
