From the Masters: The rock star arrives

Weekly Whatup 3/31

Never, in my 10 years of filling out a bracket, have I had a year as absolutely pathetic as this one. I'm done, finished, caput – not a single team left in the Final Four. I went o-fer.

Weekly Whatup 3/24

My bracket is a complete mess - which is pretty ridiculous considering the lack of big upsets, Cinderella's no-show and a whole lot of big names still standing in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament.

Weekly Whatup 2.24

Man, what a week. I stood at Metter High School this past week, leaning against the wall behind the baseline watching the end of the Emanuel County Institute-Savannah Country Day girls' game - an appetizer before Portal took on Calvary Day in the Region 3-A tournament. It dawned on me that, "Yes, I do love basketball."

Weekly Whatup 2.17

This is what it all comes down to: tournament time. All the hard work, all the long nights, the long grind of the regular season and the whole year comes down to "win or go home".

Weekly Whatup, 2.10

It's hard to believe the prep basketball season comes to a close this week. For some, it's that last chance to make a strong push toward playoff play. For others it's a chance to work out the kinks before the start of the region tournament. And yet for some it's the harsh realization that their high school basketball careers are coming to a close.
