Acie Law is Awesome

I know Texas A&M wound up losing by 2 to Texas, but wow, what a show put on by Acie Law. The 3 ball with 1.4 seconds left in regulation to tie the game, and then the 3 with about 25 seconds left in OT to tie the game, and then the perfect missed free throw at the end of the second OT, though they couldn't convert on that.

The man has ice in his veins. 6 points in the first half, and he wound up with 33. Awesome.

Kevin Durant wound up with 30 and 16, but he hardly got the ball in either OT. Not sure what the deal was with that. Still, with the talent of Durant and DJ Augustin, Texas is going to be a real tough out in the Big Dance.


One other comment on the games... Jay Wright and Rick Barnes both need to give Kelvin Sampson a thank you call. If you'll remember, when Sampson left Oklahoma to go to Indiana, it let all of his recruits out of their scholarships.

One of those recruits was Scottie Reynolds, who dropped 40 for Villanova in a win tonight. Another of them was Dameon James, who scored 22 points and had 9 rebounds for the Longhorns. And now Sampson has Eric Gordon coming to play for the Hoosiers next year. The man can recruit (even if it's not always within NCAA rules).
