Truly humbled, and always reverential to his predecessors, Lundquist graciously received the seventh annual Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award at Gotham Hall in New York City on Thursday night.

Big East Journal: Day 2 - McDermott.

by Kenny Ducey

I've seen few college basketball players over the years compare to what I saw last night from Doug McDermott. It was my first time seeing him in person, and I'm glad I'll get to watch him again tonight at 9:30 against Xavier after Creighton took it to 12-21 DePaul by a score of 84-62.

Big East Journal: Day 1 - That Was Something

by Kenny Ducey

While almost everyone in New York was busy watching the Knicks win their fifth-straight game, then continuing to follow the Phil Jackson-to-NY news, there was some basketball being played at Madison Square Garden. It was kind of weird basketball.

Sloppy may be the best term to describe it; there was an abundance of fouls and a ton of missed jumpshots. The only of the four teams to play that shot better than 36% in the first half, Georgetown, lost 60-56 to DePaul. Seton Hall, going just 5/20 from deep, fought off Butler 51-50.

The Kansas Jayhawks Men’s Basketball team (not just Andrew Wiggins) must take precedence over the freshmen domination beginning to take place. 

I didn’t believe they deserved to be fifth in the country, but after the Duke game, I can’t say enough about the Jayhawks. I thought Duke was going to win by 10 or more points. Needless to say… I was incorrect.
