Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

We ought to say something about last night's last semifinal, in which Purdue led at the half, but OU got the win: the Sooners were clearly the stronger, faster (except for FahKara Malone), more skilled team, and nobody should begrudge them their victory.

Courtney P ended up with 19 and 13, and exerted-- in the second half-- the kind of low-post dominance we expect: the game remained competitive because Purdue got, and converted, so many chances to score with the clock stopped. It was a choppy, stop-and-start "game of two halves," in other words. Full Court's Michaelson was right there.
