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.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 3/11/2018

The NCAA Men's and Women's conference basketball tournaments officially kick off March Madness.  Win and you're in.  Lose and, in many cases, your season ends.  But everyone has a chance to win their tournament.  Through buzzer beaters and upsets, the Arizona Wildcats solidified their NCAA tournament position by winning their 7th conference tournament title (and third in four years).  Led by a freshman from the Bahamas.  Deandre Ayton is showing he's ready for the next level.  In Arizona's dismantling of UCLA and USC in the semifinals and finals, Ayton played 79 out of 85 possible minutes.  The 7'1" phenom tallied 64 points, at 75% from the field, 90% from the free throw line and hauled in 32 total rebounds.  During the regular season he averaged 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 2 blocks.  Look for Arizona to make a deep run, as Ayton is Olajuwon-esque unstoppable.  And our Sportsman of the Week!
