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 2/5/2023


The gap week between the NFL Conference Championships, beyond the Australian Open, and before March Madness produces an intriguing and somewhat underdog choice for Sportsman or woman of the week.  This year, we focus on what has probably been the best men's college basketball team over the past two years, the Houston Cougars.  Final Four participants in 2022, they added a talented freshman that may be the person to push them over the top.  Jarace Walker has been a force in the American Athletic Conference and seems to be getting better with experience.  The 6'8" racked up his third and fourth double digit scoring games on a balanced Cougar squad.  He's got inside game and outside game with over 50% shooting from the field, 7-11 from beyond the arc and 11 rebounds in the two wins this week.  Not to mention 5 steals and 38 points overall, all tops on the team.  And the Cougars were the only Top 5 team to win both their contests last week to push their overall record to 22-2.  The Cougars look poised for a March Madness run and Jarace Walker is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
