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.
KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Kenshin Kawakami relished the opportunity to match up against fellow countryman Daisuke Matsuzaka.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods was down to his last shot at Bay Hill, tied for the lead as he measured a 15-foot birdie putt. That's when he heard a lone voice among thousands of people packed into the grandstand behind the 18th green.
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.
This week, we're going to start with an apology. Last week, I gave a quick review of the 2008-2009 basketball season for all our area teams. Outside of the Statesboro boys team, I guessed most squads were disappointed with the way things ended…wrong.
The Southern Conference basketball tournament starts this weekend in Chattanooga, Tenn. Both Georgia Southern teams head up the interstate without much fanfare or expectation, leaving behind regular seasons that were disappointing.
In the midst of Georgia Southern's three-game sweep of Presbyterian, a falling baseball creates a close call for several spectators.
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."
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".
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.
