Kansas storms back to stun West Virginia in overtime

West Virginia surrendered 21 of the final 28 points in regulation

The last time Kansas lost two consecutive games inside the legendary Phog Allen Fieldhouse was way back in 1988-89.  West Virginia had a huge lead for most of the first 37 minutes, but Kansas somehow pulled even and dominated most of the overtime squeezing out another hard fought 84-80 victory in overtime.  The key was getting plenty of turnovers on the defensive end in front of a very loud crowd at The Phog.

Frank Mason III was only 3 of 13 from the field, but his 24 points in 43 game minutes mostly came from the charity stripe–going an incredible 16 for 18 on the night.

The win pretty much seals for Kansas yet another Big 12 Conference regular season title–leading West Virginia by three full games and noticing that Baylor lost on the road at Texas Tech 84-78 when they gave up 52 points in the second half.

Sadly, none of the same happened in Rosemont outside of Chicago as second ranked Villanova ran away and hid in DePaul by a 75-62 score.  An 11-2 run early in the first half sealed that game for good.

The final huge game on this Monday was Louisville upending Syracuse at the Carrier Dome 76-72 in overtime, as Quentin Snider’s 14 points led the charge as the Orange are dealt yet another blow to their flickering NCAA Tournament hopes.

Have a safe, fun, and most of all, a very pleasant Valentine’s Day.

Yes, someday–I don’t have any idea when or where, but deep inside my heart, I will find a woman, a quality woman in whom to date and hopefully discover some future fun things that may come my way.

I recall a quote in the mid 2000’s while dropping off some mail less than a half block away from the place I used to live.  The quote read, “Luck is a matter of meeting preparation with opportunity.”  I cannot wait for that day or evening to somehow become a reality.
