From a spectator’s perspective, April is the deadest month for college basketball. I should’ve thought about that when I was choosing a topic for my weekly blog. Pretty much everything out there in the blogosphere right now has to do with recruiting rumors or guys foaming at the mouth over new coaching hires. Boring stuff like […]

I went to Memphis this weekend to watch the Grizzlies play Golden State. I couldn’t resist the chance to see the Warriors’ machine of an offense at least one time in person this year. Besides, I had a chance to witness a small part of history. The Warriors had to win to keep their chances […]

Confession: I haven’t been to team workouts since the last game. I didn’t even go to school yesterday. Being a freshman is catching up with me, and I gave myself the long weekend to go home and catch the Atlanta Braves’ Opening Day game vs. the Washington Nationals. The Braves resemble a below-average minor-league team […]

Everyone has heard of March Madness. It might as well be part of the American Dream. Every office does a pool. Just about everyone fills out a bracket. Some people pick teams based on weeks of research and watching games, others by whoever has the coolest jersey color. Even my grandmother knows what it is, and […]

We had the chance to end the regular season with the third seed but lost badly to Kennesaw and fell to sixth. In the Atlantic Sun Conference, […]

George W. Bush ruined my intramural basketball game Monday night. Yes, this is a real thing that happened. Actually, Lipscomb just closed the Student Activity Center to host a donor event. But I still blame Dubya for crushing my hoop dreams for the night. One of the first questions everyone asks me (and all other managers, I […]

I go on bus trips only. Zack Olley is a superior man than me or something, so he gets to miss class for plane trips to Florida Gulf Coast, Stetson and the other faraway schools. But, for some reason, Lipscomb basketball always takes a bus to USC Upstate in Spartanburg, S.C. It was my only […]

This is the end of the bench, where the athletes in knee braces and cheap suits sit. This is the end of the bench, where the water floweth eternally and the towels are abundant. Life is different here; injured players are transformed into assistant coaches, and healthy players with little chance of playing time–Lipscomb’s own Club Trillion–cheer their […]
