Quick Hits

Throwing this out there a few minutes before the start of the ND-Georgetown game.

  • Against Marquette, the men's team looked like they were taking honors classes from the Bob Davie School of Clock Management. Twice under two minutes they came down the court with a two point lead, only to throw up a long jumper with 15 seconds left on the shot clock. Ugh.

  • I didn't get a chance to see the women play Georgetown, but I heard the end wasn't pretty. A win's a win, though. Tuesday night they play at Rutgers, which is never an easy task.

  • Much baseball on this site in the coming weeks. The World Baseball Classic's "provisional rosters" have been announced, and I'll compare those to the lineups I projected a few months back. Also, it's almost time for my yearly game of predict-the-lineups. Always way too much fun for me.

  • Mo Stovall will be wearing his familiar #21 for the North squad in this Saturday's Senior Bowl (4 PM Eastern, ESPN). If you have ESPN Insider, first of all let me ask you why you're paying money for something like that. But, if you are paying for it, you might as well check out all the "inside" information they have on Mo. For those of you sans Insider, be sure to check out Mo's comments from this chat wrap before it ESPN starts charging for it. Mo shows up around the 3:37 mark (hoo hoo!). He sure loves his exclamation marks! And can someone get this guy an XBox 360?
