After watching last nights game between Davidson and Oklahoma I am predicting right now that one of the two superstars from last nights game, Stephen Curry or Blake Griffin, will be the National Player of the Year. Hands down the best guard and the best power forward in the nation graced us college hoops fans with a game to remember last night.
Griffin had 25 points and a career-high 21 rebounds, while Oklahoma freshmen and high school McDonald’s All-American Willie Warren added 20 points and the Sooners overcame the highest scoring game of Stephen Curry’s young career to beat No. 21 Davidson 82-78 on Tuesday night in Oklahoma.
Did I mention the highest scoring game of Curry’s career? Oh yea, Curry just scored 44 points on 12-for-29 shooting and went 6-for-15 from 3-point range, and single-handedly brought the Wildcats back from a 21-point deficit with his incredible shooting.
Young bucks, WATCH this kid shoot. STUDY his form. He is the most pure shooter to come along in a while and I cannot wait to catch more of his games on national TV. I’m pulling for Davidson to make some noise this year.
Penn State climbed in the mathematics of the BCS standings after its big win at Ohio State, closing the gap on first-place Texas and second-place Alabama on Sunday.
However, the Lions are still in danger of being undefeated and left out of the BCS national championship game.
The Longhorns were again first by far in all the polls and on top of all the computer rankings. Staying undefeated won’t be easy for Texas, which plays at Texas Tech on Saturday. The BCS Rankings please:
1st. Texas (.9981)
2nd. Alabama (.9499)
3rd. Penn State (.9257)
Penn State’s 13-6 victory over Ohio State helped in the computer rankings and pushed its average to .9257. The problem for the Nittany Lions is the weakness of the Big Ten in comparison to the Southeastern Conference and the Big 12.
After a week off, Penn State will play at Iowa (5-3) and then finish the season with home games against Indiana (3-5) and Michigan State (7-2). It’s highly unlikely those opponents will help lift Penn State into one of the top two spots if the Crimson Tide win the SEC and Longhorns win the Big 12. Penn State can really only hope for a loss out of one of the top two teams, which is possible with all the talent in those conferences and all the teams gunning at the top dawgs.
4th. Oklahoma (.8270)
5th. Southern California (.7822)
