Last night, the league I’ve been following all season (because of my Pioneer Pulse blog), the Sun Belt, provided us with what The Mid-Majority calls the “first eternal highlight reel moment” of this Championship Fortnight: a game-winning #superhoop by Arkansas-Little Rock’s Solomon Bozeman, showing why he was the conference’s player of the year:
The entire ending of the game, particularly the final minute, was intense. I was already calling it an “INSTANT CLASSIC” before Bozeman’s shot sent me (and justabouteveryoneelse) into a tweet-frenzy. I can’t find a video of the whole closing sequence, but you can get a little flavor of it from this ESPN clip. (Random aside: Media companies that post clips on YouTube, but disable embedding, don’t understand YouTube. In a word, #FAIL.)
I almost wish I’d kept my ticket and flown to Arkansas for that game even though DU wasn’t in it. What a game! I can only hope tonight’s Big Sky title game in Greeley, which I’ll be at, will be half as entertaining as the Sun Belt’s grand finale.
If the blog looks all screwy this morning, with a big blank space in between the blog content and a tiny right sidebar, view my stylesheet and hit reload on your browser, then come back to this page and again click reload. That should fix it.
What I’ve done is create a massive right sidebar for ScribbleLive-fueled live coverage (largely Twitter-based, but also archived for posterity) of March Madness-related events, starting with tonight’s Montana @ Northern Colorado Big Sky championship game (7pm MST, 9pm EST, on ESPN2), which I’ll be at in person. Bally is stoked.
