I certainly thought it was something he could achieve... don't know if I felt it would actually happen, but knew he had the talent to do something like this.

^ Do they have a shot at beating Baylor? I've only seen Baylor play one game, but it was damn impressive. Houston seems really well rounded with good complimentary players and good coaching.

I think it will take a lot for them to get past Baylor. DJ, among others on Houston, will likely have to play the best they ever have.

Even with this season being so crazy with the pandemic, it has been hurtling towards a Gonzaga-Baylor Finals since early on... I don't see that changing here, but will be rooting for Houston none-the-less.

Woah! I tuned it in just in time to see Unique's dunk. His dunk lived up to his name. He had some guy standing a few feet from the hoop holding the ball on his head! Unique leaped over the guy grabbed the ball and dunked it! He's in second place. Apparently he came in second last year. It was great to see him. Thanks, LS.

Strange emotions watching Unique. Still rooting big-time for him on his outstanding first dunk. Not overly upset that the guy who left us converted only a decent, not top-level effort on his second dunk. Then not really caring that he took himself out of the competition on the third dunk, going for big points, when he could have gotten a score for just a simple dunk somewhere in the thirty seconds of the third try. He is one of our guys, but not really.

Anyone see the three-point final competition between the guy and girl? That was impressive.

His Texas Southern Tigers play Mount St. Mary’s at 11 am Thursday. Winner gets top seeded Michigan.
The only problem is that Chris has somehow found himself at the end of the bench. In the three SWAC Tourney games he played a total of 12 minutes.
That’s too bad. That said, he’s dancing and we’re not!
Chris has found a new home. It seems that a lot of guys who left us ended up transferring again. It's a strange new world in the transfer portal.
