Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
Another week of March Madness and new stars emerge. Wisconsin was probably the least heralded one seed, with their workman-like approach to breaking down opponents. They find themselves in another Final Four led by a pair of forwards. But it's not Frank the Tank we give the nod, but Sam Dekker. The lanky junior (6'9", 220 pounds) lit up North Carolina (Sweet 16) and Arizona (Elite 8) to lead the Badgers to a showdown with Number One Kentucky in the Final Four. Dekker went for 23 and 27 points in the games respectively with 18-26 from the field (69%) and 15 boards over the two games. And he has an outside shot with 5-6 against Arizona. All around game is what it's about, especially for our Sportsman of the Week!
