Week In Ball: On Wall, Wisco, and WVU
By Eamonn Brennan
First things first: The college hoops desk's Weekend Watch series has made Friday afternoon's Saddle Up redundant. Who needs a hurriedly typed jumble of blog words when you can get a comprehensive preview of nearly every game in one neatly designed package? Pretty much no one, is who. So as we look toward the weekend's rather awesome hoops slate, let's do something new here. Let's quickly review the week in hoops.
Hey, what did happen this week? Lots of stuff, actually:
John Wall showed his first signs of discord with his coach, John Calipari, saying he (Wall) "wasn't having any fun" and "tried not to listen to (Calipari)." This was a minor controversy before the two very publicly smoothed things over. A glossy win over Ole Miss helped.
And I did my first-ever -- not just for ESPN, but in my blogging career -- video blog. Just don't call it a "vlog."
Be sure to check back tomorrow, when we'll be serving up the usual diet of all-day hoops blogging. I'll be at Michigan State-Illinois at night. Another video blog could be impending. Try to conceal your excitement. See you then.
