Some On Kansas And South Carolina Hoops Crowns

April 6, 2022

It was a tournie of missed opportunities for me. I told “Stone,” it would be Kansas gaining “revenge” vs N.C. 65 years later, however antis/antis/ yielded loss rather than gain.

I was truly screwed, as Gill Alexander also stated, regarding Ochai Agbaji  being named the Most Outstanding Player, rather than David McCormack, who clearly deserved the honor. Agbaji was even money, David “Mc” a non cashed 9 to 1, before the title tilt.

Alexander, usually very competent, even very good and certainly intelligent, might have known McCormack’s first name is David and not Robert. Yet that proved too much for him!!

South Carolina, given short shrift here, won their second Women’s basketball crown, both under Kim Staley, the other being in 2017, as they KO’d all Connecticut weases, (-4) winning by 15.

Destanni Henderson led the Gamecocks with 26 points in the title game. Ms. Boston, the much heralded, Ms. Boston had 11 points and 16 rebounds.

Bill Self also won a second coaching crown, as he guided Kansas to a 4th (legendary Phog Allen and Larry Brown coached the other two) title.

He avoids big criticism and being lumped with “only one title, so often “blowing it,” as was the case this year for his Kentucky vs St. Peter’s,” which truly opened the bracket, John Calipari.

Self’s ’08 Kansas title team was down 9 points (he told his players that at “el” half the other night) with less than 3 minutes to play, but overcame Memphis, coached by Calipari and led by “never having won,” Derrick Rose, who surely missed key free throws.

Two nights back, Self’s team overcame a 15 point halftime deficit vs Hubert Davis (what a joke that coaches talk with vapid, so called sideline reporters DURING the game. Davis was so exuberant and even cocky in that “interview,” however, the combination of “mush me” and the bad karma of exacerbating the pain real fans feel seeing the (dis)likes of Tracey Wolfson do these in game interviews “GOT” Davis and the Heels. Also “Heels” are Nantz and Raftery for cheering such stuff on) and N.C.
