Well, it’s no surprise around these parts that Gardner-Webb annihilated Kentucky the other night (we’ll hold off on conspiracy rumors for now). It was all over tv, papers, and blogs. Yay GW! But then, in an event that never happened at Huntington High last year, USC and super-frosh OJ Mayo were upset by Mercer last night. Much like the UK/GW game, this game wasn’t ever really close. OJ led the Trojans with 32 of their 96, but also gave the ball back to the Bears eight (EIGHT!!!) times. The crazier thing in all of this, Mercer and Gardner-Webb both play in the same conference: the Atlantic Sun. A quick look around the country will also lead one to find that the Belmont Bruins upset Cincinnati on Friday night. That’s three quality wins for the Atlantic Sun. It may or may not last, but for now… let’s all congratulate the Atlantic Sun. Could we be talking multiple bids to the NCAA Tournament this year? Okay, sorry, no.
Atlantic Sun: Best in the Country
