There were 49 college basketball games on Thursday, which provided ample choices for the Photo of the Day.
So I cheated a bit and selected two, using the “um, you can’t play defense like that,” theme.” What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good photo. Anyway, I’ll do this in two posts. Check out the other one here.
Stopping Memphis guard Will Barton is a thankless task. The 6-5 guard is quick, has improved his mid-range game and is explosive off the dribble. Sometimes, you just have to do what UTEP did during the Conference USA quarterfinals.
Memphis won, 65-47, despite Barton scoring just seven points. It plays UCF in the semis on Friday.
