Blog Hound: College Basketball Action Captivates Bloggers
Published November 26, 2008
Over the past 24 hours, college basketball was the most popular topic among the most influential sports blogs. Areas of discussion included the Maui Invitational tournament, Syracuse's upset wins over Florida and Kansas, and Loyola's strategy to constantly double-team Davidson G Stephen Curry. Last night's Cavaliers-Knicks game sparked conversation about Cavaliers F LeBron James going to the Knicks in 2010. Also discussed was Ball State's football team finishing the regular season undefeated at 12-0 with a win last night over Western Michigan. Rinku Singh and Dinesh Kumal Patel, two pitchers from India signed by the Pirates, remained in the top five for a second day following a discovery that the two players have a blog. Rounding out the top was amusement over two Iowa football fans getting caught engaging in sexual activity in a bathroom stall at the Metrodome during Saturday's Iowa-Minnesota game.
