Enterprise Bridge

Fuckity fuck fuck...

Glenbrook North lost last night 85-79 to Proviso West in the second round of the Proviso West Tournament. That snaps their winning streak at 35 games (they had not lost in a calendar year.) Jon Scheyer scored 21 of his 52 points between 1:24 and 0:09 of the fourth quarter--five treys and 6-7 free throws, before fouling out on an attempted steal. North had been down 13 (71-58) before that streak, and closed it to 81-79. That had to be phenomenal to watch. (And Mike Krzyzewski was watching from press row.) When he's on, you really can't stop him.

That's fine. I'll take a loss now over one in March. That's the only trophy that really matters.

Tickets for the McDonald's All-American game (Wednesday March 29th) have finally gone on sale. This year's game is at SDSU, so I'm going. They're a little pricey... $75 for the first 20 rows or so, then $25, then $15 for the top rows. I bought two in the $25 range, that's plenty close enough.
