No Sharaud (Curry), But Shawna (Hassett)

By David Scott - January 04, 2007

PROVIDENCE - Those of you Hang Time hangers who were with us last time we were in The Dunk (for PC-BC on Thanksgiving Eve) will remember our slight infatuation with the local COX Sports sideline reporter.

Well, lo and behold, the talented Shawna Hassett is back in the house providing sideline commentary for the duo of play-by-play man, Don Orsillo and collor guy, Ron Perry.

You would be forgiven if you ignored our blogging while Shawna is on-screen. But ONLY at those times.

. . . We’re 15 minutes from tip and The Dunk is filling in nicely. Both teams took the court with about 20 minutes til tip to go through lay-up lines and shooting. The Golden Eagles were received with a loud round of boos emanating form the student section. PC students are on break for another week and a half, but there is still a good sizable amount of black t-shirt clad, Friar Fanatics.

. . . Marquette’s early season win over Duke still resonates, but the Golden Eagles have run into two problems through the rest of the non-conference slate - a stunner loss at home to North Dakota State and a forgivable loss to Wisconsin.

. . . Marquette’s electrifying sophomore Dominic James has a total of five 20 point games this season and 10 in his career.

. . . Marquette starts out its Big East schedule with four of six games on the road.

. . . NBA Scouts are not listed on the media seating chart, but there are at least three NBA teams represented tonight, including the Celtics and Toronot Raptors.
