Spokane: Instant offense

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

You're probably sick of me talking about this. Heck, I'M sick of me talking about this. But my God, JUST GIVE DURANT THE BALL. I'm talking with the guys next to me and we all agree that Durant doesn't touch the ball enough and that if they would give to him when he is FIRST open (instead of waiting 2-7 seconds, which is preferred, evidently) he would score 80 percent of the time.

Nonetheless, they give him the ball, he's fouled and now on his way to the line. Texas leads 67-62 with 3:37 to play.

At the Oregon press conference I was talking with reporter from the Northwest who covers Oregon a lot and he said he thought Oregon "had 95 percent of the talent in the ballgame and only won by 2" because Kent was outcoached. If Texas pulls this out, it's going to be the same line I think.

There is a guy on the Texas bench wearing the equivalent of a men's V-neck sweater. This is neither cool nor acceptable.

Durant hits both FTs. I guess one good thing for him is that he touches the ball so infrequently his shooting percentage is incredibly high.
