Kevin It was Fun While it Lasted/Tourney Update

Well, for that small amount of Longhorns Fans reading the board and using there brackets for toilet paper, you gotta admit, Kevin Durant was special. The state of Texas hasnt seen a College Basketball player this good since Hakeem Olajuwon was a Houston Cougar. TJ Ford, LaMarcus Aldridge, Clyde Drexler, and a host of others were good but none of them had that star power strike them early, like this kid did. He could score from anywhere on the court, defend, and rebound. Unfortunately Sunday, USC proved that one man cannot beat you. When Carmelo lead the Orangemen of Syracuse , he had a young sharpshooter at point guard, a nasty powerforward who could jump through the stratosphere, and a solid 2 guard who came of the bench and ran for days. Durant came into Sundays game with a arguably one of the best point guards in the nation, but against USC he was held to 6 points, and fouled out midway in the second half. That left Kevin to fend for the team all by himself, a feet that he's done before, but tonight, his 30 points and 8 boards just wasnt enough.
Its pretty much a lock to this blogger, that KD has played his last basketball game a the collegiate level and if this is the case, its my opinion that he should be the #1 pick overall. Kevin I for one enjoyed the run. You made CBB tolerable for me and that game vs. OSU you should keep with you..It was by far and away your best.

To bring you guys up to speed with the tourney , right now ya boy is trailing in the blogger-bet 59 to 68 to E over on
bgdboom . But, i'm not out of the game yet..We both suffered some huge setbacks with Wisconsin, and GW losing, but we both still have our final 4 teams and its early but thats what its looking like its gonna come down to...Stay tuned...rp
