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.

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

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.
