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 3/18/2018

When the calendar says March, it's time for Madness.  Basketball madness.  In today's day and age, the favored teams seem to be loaded with one-and-done freshman and maybe a key sophomore.  But it's a senior who led his team this week to a Sweet 16 berth.  West Virginia's Jevon Carter provided that rare veteran leadership in positioning the Mountaineers for a Final Four run.  In two victories of over Murray State and rival Marshall, Carter posted 49 points, 11 steals, and 13 assists.  His total points are tops for teams still alive and the latter.  He only needed to play 29 minutes in the Marshall game because the team was coasting.  He was also 19-35 from the field, including 5-8 from beyond the arc.  Savage.  Carter is the kind of player that could turn greatness into legend the next two weeks, and he is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
