    Debate: Last Night's Bunnie Win

    That seems like a rule that needs to be changed although I can kind of see why it hasn't been. If you give a do-over, and the team with the ball scores and wins, the defending team might then feel cheated. I've seen a lot of basketball and I've seen time added to the clock in certain situations. I've never seen a do-over for any reason. (I'm editing to say that jump balls are sometimes done over. I can't think of any other scenario though.) I guess going forward, the coach of any team in that situation (need a basket to win/tie and short time on the clock) would need to tell his team to run the play he called for and ignore the clock and the horn. That way IF the clock is started prematurely, AND they make the shot, a stopwatch might be their only hope of winning. Another thing to remember by the way regarding Taj's call for a technical, the timekeeper is not the only one in the building with the ability to start the clock. All three officials have that capability and any one of them could have made the mistake. However, it's a mistake that NONE of the four should have made.

    Jordyn bumped Jenny Vliet (199 treys) to 3rd place. She will not reach Lynette Pestel (1992-96) who had 278.

    From slubillikens.com: She went 4-of-8 from 3-point range vs. Richmond; her first triple vs. the Spiders vaulted her into second place on SLU’s career 3-pointers list (now with 203) and gave her the Billikens’ single-season record for 3-pointers by a senior (now with 66).

    OT: Buzzer bearers.

    I was a ring bearer back in the middle of the last century. A buzzer would have been a hell of a lot more fun.

    The Bills over GW by 8

    Davidson would get the auto bid for winning the conference? Unless something has changed, (or I'm missing something here), the auto bid goes to the tourney winner, right?

    Hey, it wasn't my intent to correct you. It works either way. Just wanted to add a little wordplay.

    From the game program for yesterday's Lasalle game and I quote: Ciaja Harbison was selected national Freshman of the Week by the U.S. Basketball Writer's Association for Jan. 28-Feb.3, becoming the first SLU women's basketball player to earn a USBWA national honor. (I didn't see this mentioned anywhere else but if so, here it is again.)

    I walked past him on the concourse that night and I swear he looks the same as when he was playing. Has stayed in great shape.

    I don't get what startles you. The WOMEN'S team play Lasalle on the 10th of February. The MEN play them on the 16th. The ad you posted is for the women's game. That may be why the ad features a member of the women's team. SLU has a women's basketball team in case you didn't know.

    My beef regarding tickets is the email for free women's tickets for today's game I got a few days ago. I ordered and printed out a bunch of tickets (and had to pay 1.50 to TicketBastard for the privilege), gave them to friends/relatives and then found out they wouldn't scan at the gate. I got 'em replaced with no argument at the box office but what is it with this organization?
