Hazell’s Magic Treys

— Can’t feel too bad about that one, not with the freaky shooting of Jeremy Hazell. Taking shots he shouldn’t have been taking, shots going in that should have been clanking. More carnival than basketball.

— U of L played well enough to win, and should have won going away. Hazell apparently could have closed his eyes and still made those bombs.

— Hazell’s heretic heroics overshadowed great performances by U of L’s Jerry Smith and Seton Hall’s Brian Laing, applying skill over absurdity to collect 25 points apiece.

— All those club member bounces for Hazell’s teammates, balls bouncing wildly around the rim, then falling though the net, were frustrating as well.

— Outcome gives new meaning to better lucky than good.

— Starting to hate these trips to the New York area, with all of U of L’s New Yorkers rarely performing well for families and friends.

    so much for that “test”

    Hazell should never have had a chance to even get off those 3’s

    our BBall IQ and more importantly, the emotional maturity to be a champion….i wonder if it’s there with this group sufficiently beyond David and Jerry, to get us anywhere important

    very disappointing that we not only didn’t pass the test–but flunked so very, VERY badly
