January 23, 1985: vs St. Joseph's (8-7)

The Hawks are mediocre, but they do have a bonafide star in C Jamie Rowden. He's averaging 14.3 points and 6.1 rebounds. Two others, forwards Gerland Mullens and Richie Pepin, average 11.2 and 10.0 points a game, respectively. They have played only one team with enough of a resume, that being Cornell. They fell, 74-36. That was at home.

Defensively, they are a mess. The culprit is fouls. They foul a lot. They get fouled a lot. They play aggressively, and that brings aggressive play back. In short...expect this to be pretty ugly.

The team is without starting guard Justin Brown.

Wilfred Friel opens the game with a technical. He and the ref had a disagreement in another game, and it carried over. Jack hits both, then finds Hulett, then finds Woods. Mullens hits a three for the Hawks. James Rowden scores for St. Joe's... Grayson scores, then fouls Mullens. It's 9-8 St. Joe with 16:23 left.

Hullet hits from the wing off a Kenny pass. Jack gets an offensive rebound and a score. Grayson gets a bucket, and the foul, and the free throw. Jack gets a steal, and an assist to Kenny. It's 17-9 with 14:22 left.

Grayson has drawn three fouls. He has eight points. GW leads, 21-10...Jack gets a breakaway dunk. Hector gets a steal out of a trap, and gets it to Hulett for the bucket. It's 25-10. Jack has a 6-4-4 line...Hulett htis a three. He has 11. Hershel Beckford hits a three to make it 28-14 with 9:26 left.

The JVs come in. Jack gets an offensive board again, as he returns, and scores once more. Jack hits again...it's 32-15. Then a nasty block of Chris Vest's dunk, and Boutwell gets a dunk on the other end. It's 36-15. James Rowden scores...Woods gets a steal, but Jack misses. Mullens scores. Hulett answers. Woods gets fouled by Mullens...with 2:48 left, it's 43-19, as Woods scores again. Jack is currently sitting...Hector and Kenny are running things, with Hulett at the 3.

Jack hits as he comes back in. He has a 12-8-4 line, and it's 45-21 at the break. GW had just two turnovers here. St. Joe's has 14. St. Joe's has one assist. GW has 12. Not a bad half. Mullens had 10 for the Hawks.

Mullens opens the second half with a score...then gets a steal off Jack, and a dunk the other way. Hulett gets a steal, gets it to Jack, who gets fouled. He hits both. Mullens gets a layup...Jack responds by finding Woods. Rowden hits. Jack gets fouled by Pepin. He hits both...has 16-8-5, and it's 51-31, after Mullens scores. He has 16, too.

Jack finds Hulett. He gets a steal, and a dunk the other way. Jack gets fouled dunking on Mullens...he misses that, but not the free throws. It's 57-31. Jack scores again. He's got 22-8-6. Armbruster scores off a Kenny pass. Daniel Summers hits a three. Jack gets fouled...he hits both again. It's 64-34. Rowden hits two free throws. Jack hits again, off a Hulett pass. Rowden scores...Jack misses a dunk. 11:38 left, 66-38, GW.

Jack heads back to the line again...he hits both again. The JVs are back with nine minutes left. Hector hits a three. He hasn't done much today. Beckford hits a three. Jack returns with 7:39 left. It's 73-41 at the moment. Mullens scores...Jack finds Grayson, then finds Hulett for three. It's 78-45, the JVs come in, and that's going to be it. The final is 79-56, as St. Joe's kept their starters in against the JVs. Mullens finished with 18, Rowden 17...Hulett had 18 for GW. Jack went 12-12 from the line.

The beat marches on.

Here are Jack's statistical rankings:

Scoring: 24.4, 2nd in NCAA
Rebounding: 10.6, t-9th
Assists: 7.4, 5th
Steals: 2.4, t-11th
Blocks: 1.2, NR

In history...Jack has 3,052 points going into tonight's game. Jack is tied for third all-time in offensive rebounds, with 456. The record holder, North Carolina's Cristobal SImonton, had 491. He graduated in 1954. In fact, Jack has the most since then...the top five were all players who graduated in 1955 or earlier.

Jack is the NCAA's career-leading rebounder, which he took over a few games ago. He has 1,358 in his career. Michael Diaz (Maryland '54) is the only other player with more than 1,300; he has 1,303.

Jack has 857 assists. It is unlikely he'll get to the record, but the way he's going, getting to #2 all-time (917) is not out of the question. This is a record that has stood since 1960.

Jack is 20th all-time in steals, with 277. He won't get the record, but he could crack the top ten, which would put him over 300.

Jack needs eight field goals to tie the all-time record, set in 1954 by Brian Harrison of NC State. Jack has 1051 going into the Hofstra game. He ranks just 22nd in shots all-time, with 1961. Harrison took 2234, which is second to Gordon Showalter's 2239 (Wake Forest '70).

Jack is the NCAA's leading free throw maker, with 761. He has taken just 826, which ranks him 19th. Clemente Ellis (Utah '80) holds the record, with 986. Quite amazingly, he does not rank among the top fifty in free throws made.


January 28, 1985: at Hofstra (13-5)


One would think Hofstra is good, but they are 2-4 against the top 100, and 11-1 vs the rest. They slow things down and keep teams from scoring. That's how they manage their victories.

They do have three players averaging double-digits. Norm Weaver scores 14.8 a game. Guards Hoyt Pulley (12.7 points off the bench) and Rocco Cornell (11.8) offer some support on offense. But this will be a slow go for the Pride.

Jack isn't used to looking at a SF bigger than he is. Weaver is 6'10. Cornell opens the game with a score...Kenny gets a steal and a breakaway to tie it. Grover Sherman is blocked by Jack. Jack comes down and drills his first shot. Linwood Means (nickname is "Business" or "Whatever You Want It To Mean") picks Hulett's pocket. Hector gets a steal, gets it to Jack, who gives it back for a bucket. Jack finds Hector again, and Mighty Mite is off and flying. Jack scores...it's 10-2 with 14:31 to go.

Hulett breaks through a trap and hits. Pulley scores as he comes in. Hulett gets a steal, and gets a layup. Linwood Means hits a three. Jack gets a steal, but he got fouled and it wasn't called. He has a 4-8-1 line right now, and it's 14-7 with 10:43 left. Pulley gets a dunk...Sherman gets a steal, but Kenny forces a violation on Pulley.

Sherman hits to make it 14-11. GW is in a funk. Woods scores off a Jack pass, making it 16-11. Hulett returns after PUlley scores. It's 16-13. Jack commits his first foul...but he scores. Then he scores again. He has 8-9-2, and it's 20-13. Hulett scores. It's 22-13, and Hulett with another steal and a layup, as Jack sits with the score 24-13. He comes back 3:20...Jeff Gower scores for the Pride. Kenny gets called for a travel, then a foul.

Joe Castellanos hits both free throws, and Hector has his second turnover. German Kates is hurt, and he comes out. Weaver hits two free throws. It's back to three. Grayson hits on the other end. Jack misses a three at the buzzer, and the half ends 26-21. Jack has an 8-11-2 line, with two fouls. Hofstra had 13 turnovers, but outrebounded GW 17-16.

Armbruster scores off a Jack pass to start here. Armbruster hits again...Kenny gets a steal and a huge dunk. Means hits a three...Jack missed his first two shots. It's 32-24 with 17:16 left. Jack gets a steal and a hoop on the other end. Kenny hits off a Jack pass. It's 37-24, and Hofstra calls time. Gower hits a three, but Jack responds. Means responds to that, then gets a steal and a layup. 39-31, 14:32 left as GW calls time.

Armbruster scores (Jack should've gotten an assist). Weaver hits a three, and Means gets a violation off Jack. Jack blocks Pulley, but Pulley swipes one from Jack. Allan Breland hits...it's 41-36. Woods is fouled, and he hits both. Sherman hits. Hofstra is doing great right now.

Hector gets fouled by Gower on a three, but makes only one of three. Jack gets the board, and he gets fouled. He hits both. Hulett gets a steal and a layup. It's 48-38. Hector gets a steal, but Jack can't get the dunk after what he thought was a foul. Jack has a 14-13-4 line. Hulett gets a three off a Jack pass. Otis Stint gets a score for Hofstra, but Jack responds. It's 53-40 with 7:40 left.

Pulley scores. Hofstra isn't going anywhere. Jack is though...he takes a seat. Hulett scores off a Hector pass. Means responds. Weaver hits a three, and it's 56-47. Hulett is at the line, making 1-2. Jack gets his third foul, with a 57-49 score and 5:07 left. Woods fouls Gower. He makes one of two. Down to seven.

Kenny gets a bit three off a Jack pass, and Hofstra throws up their hands. Woods gets a block...Jack gets a board, then throws a no-look pass to Armbruster for the score. It's 62-50 with two minutes left. Jack hits the dagger with a three off a Hulett pass. Woods gets a steal, and gets it to Jack, who hits another three. He has 22-16-7, and that's ballgame. 68-50 is your final, and Jack had a hand in the final ten points of the game.

Jack has seen his stats dip as Hulett's rise. Woods has also seen a dip in his scoring. The question is, when Hulett isn't scoring as much, will he still be shooting as much? Has Jack's constant deliverance of the offense keep him from having to stop up on scoring when needed?

As you can see, Hulett is shooting out of this world. Jack is humming right along. Armbruster is terrible at free throws. 15-41??? Kenny is shooting better than most thing (48%)...he just rarely shoots it. There are rumors of Hulett intimidating Kenny into not being a major part of the offense. Most, including Jack, say those rumors are bunk.

George Washington is excellent at ball skills, passing and acquisition. They are also fantastic at shooting inside the arc...and, truthfully, better at shooting outside it. They foul a lot, but they prevent teams from shooting well...especially from 3.

Two more games, and then Duke. The rest of the schedule is quite manageable, though games at Arizona State and East Carolina are trapping points. At this point though, a #2 seed is very likely...and a #1 seed if they knock off Duke at their place.

February 1, 1985: vs Canisius (9-8)

The Golden Griffins reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time last year, probably due to the 64-team field. The 1964 version was 26-6, but they went through the NIT. Last year's club went 21-9, and were first-round fodder.

This year's team is of no real consequence. They're only win worth talking about is Notre Dame, and they're 13-9. They're led by the backcourt of star point man David Chandler (16.2 ppg, 4.2 apg) and Martin Friesen (17.1 ppg, 3.6 rpg). Justin Grimsley puts up 11.4 points and 7.5 rebounds. They *might* be better than their record...but this is in DC, and they haven't played anyone (1-3 vs the top 100).

Warren Lawson scores to open the action. Woods scores first for GW. Jack gets a steal and a dunk. Chandler finds Justin Grimsley. Martin Friesen hits a three, making it 7-4. Hulett finds Woods. Woods scores again, giving GW an 8-7 lead, but Friesen hits another three. Jack ties it up with 14:47 left.

Jack scores again, giving GW a 12-10 lead. Ali hits from the corner. It's 14-10. Grayson fouls Lawson...he scores. Jack is fouled, and he gets both. Jack gets fouled by Grimsley, and he hits both again. He has a 10-4-0 line. Then he drills a three. He's on fire. Lawson scores, but Jack hits another three. It's 24-14. Hulett gets a steal...Jack misses two threes. Maybe he's not in hero mode anymore.

Jack hits from the baseline, of course. He's got 18-5-0, and it's 27-16. Hulett scores off a Jack pass. Kenny with a steal, and he misses the layup, but Woods follows with a major dunk. Grimsley gets a steal and a dunk. Jack responds...Hulett tips in Grayson's miss of Hulett's original miss. It's 35-18. Friesen scores...Hector floats one through. Lawson responds, but Jack finds Ali for the answer. Chandler is fouled by Woods, and Jack comes out.

Kenny hits a three. Chandler finds Friesen. Jack comes back, and he takes his first foul. Jack then hits a three. Jack finds Armbruster for a hoop, and it's 49-26. Armbruster goes to the line, and misses the front end. Rufus Shaw drills it at the buzzer, making it 49-28, GW. Jack had a 23-8-3 line. GW hit 56% from the field, 56% from the line, and 31% from 3. GW outrebounded Canisius, 27-11. Ho boy.

Jack gets a steal...and he's fouled by Grimsley. He hits both free throws. Chandler gets a layup for Canisius. Grimsley hits a three. It's 51-33. Woods has a 10-8 line. Wanted to point that out. Jack finds Armbruster...he's up to 25-10-4.

Hulett hits a jumper...he has but six points. Chandler scores...he has only six points, and six rebounds. He picks Jack, but tosses it out of bounds. Hulett follows his own miss, then gets called for his third foul. Armbruster hits two free throws! It's 59-35, 12:53 left. Jack finds Woods.

Chandler gets frustrated, and commits two stupid fouls. Woods gets another dunk off a Hulett miss. Jack finds Hulett, after missing a dunk of his own. Friesen scores. Lawson scores, gets the foul, hits the free throw. Jack gets a steal, and tips in Ali's miss. Jack with another steal, and he gets fouled by Friesen. Not a clean foul. He makes one of two, and then comes out. Lovelace goes for a dunk...Ali responds with a three. It's 71-43 with 8:28 left. Jack comes back with a 28-12-6 line.

Don Rhodes scores. Jack gets a steal, and finds Kenny for three. 77-45. Andrew Champagne! hits a three. Jack gets fouled...he hits both free throws. He has 30-12-7. Lawson scores...he has 13. Jack with an offensive board and follow of Armbruster's miss. The JVs come in with the score 81-49. Ali gets up to 14 points, and the final is 97-52. Impressive showing by the JVs. Boutwell had five points.

Meanwhile, Jack went for 32 on 10-12 shooting, 9-10 FT, 13 rebounds, 7 assists, 5 steals, and 2 blocks. He shot 3-4 from three. Pretty complete game there, Sir.

February 4, 1985 Poll

Well, the dream got close. But Duke, top dog all year, has finally fallen. The Blue Devils lost at North Carolina State, 94-88, just one game before hosting George Washington. They fell just one spot, as Rice takes over #1. Missouri, Southern Cal, and surging Cornell fill out the top five.

Penn also leapt over GW, who stays at #9. Kansas and Baylor fell...Kansas from #6 to #10, Baylor from #8 to #12. Kansas State (17-5) moved up eight spots, from 21st to 13th.

All eyes will be in Durham this week, as GW heads to Duke. But first...


February 5, 1985: vs Charlotte (11-13)

The 49ers nearly beat North Carolina, though that doesn't look nearly as good as it had before. They also played Duke, back on January 12. Duke beat them, 80-31. Wake Forest, who GW beat earlier in the year, beat the 49ers, 72-48. They are also hurt, missing two of their starters, including leading scorer Gary Avelar.

In other words, this bodes horribly for Charlotte. Jeffrey McMahon, a G/G player, has not lived up to that scouting report. He averages 6.6 points and 6.9 rebounds a game.

Norbert WHitten scores for Charlotte...Armbruster responds. Woods gets a steal...but nothing comes of that. Gerald Davis gets an early technical. Jack hits both free throws. Good warm up for him. It's 4-3...Brian Greene hits a three. Jack gets a steal, and he gets it to Hulett it, who takes 47 dribbles then dunks it. Whitten scores, and Jack hits his first jump shot. Jack gets fouled by Rusty Corture. He hits both the shot and the free throw. He has seven, and it's 13-11 after Greene hits another three.

Hulett hits a jumper, then Jack finds Hulett. Whitten scores, but Woods responds to that. Jack gets a steal, but Kenny misses. Kenny hits a three...it's 22-13, with 11:53 left. Hector comes in, he's got an assist...Whitten hits a three. It's 22-16. Nothing happens for a few minutes. Ali gets a bucket and a foul. He misses the free throw. It's 24-17. How did Alabama drop that pass on third down? Wow.

Sorry, wrong subject.

Hulett gets a steal and a layup. 26-17. Hulett gets to the line, and he hits both. It's 28-19. Ole Miss beats Bama. Jack scores. Denny Perez gets a technical, though he's angrier that Alabama lost a game thirty years in the future. Whitten scores...it's 30-23. Jack has 9-3-1 so far. He hasn't really done much since that early spurt.

Whitten has 13 for Charlotte, but James Evans tips in his miss to get within four. Hulett scores. Then he argues a foul call. Hulett hits a three, he has 15. Grayson scores off a Jack pass. It's 37-26 in the final minute. It ends 37-27. GW got outrebounded, 21-15. This is a team that thinks they can beat Duke? Perhaps Duke is all they're considering right now.

Armbruster gets a breakaway from the press, and he hits a layup. Jack gets a three. Whitten gets a layup for Charlotte. Jack commits his first foul, a rather rough one for Jack. But it may set a tone here. Armbruster is fouled, and he hits both. Jack rebounds his own miss, and he scores. Then he gets a steal, and throws down a dunk in Whitten's face. It's 48-29. James Evans hits, as Whitten sits down for a moment to gain his composure. Jack gets another offensive rebound, and he scores again. He has an 18-7-2 line...clearly words were said between he and Whitten at the half, becuase Jack is on fire. He hits again, and Whitten is clearly pensive right now. Armbruster scores. It's 56-31. I guess this is a Don't Poke The Bear situation. Jack finds Armbruster, then glares at Whitten, who is sitting on the bench. Jack gets fouled, and he makes one of two. It's 59-31 with 12:25 left.

Branden Lathan managed to miss both free throws, get his own rebound, and hit a jump shot. That takes work. Jack finds Woods for his fourth assist. Woods has six points and six assists. Jack finds Hulett. Then he hits a three from NBA range. Davis responds with a three...it's 68-36 with 9:25 left.

McMahon scores. Kenny fouls, and the JVs, sans Woods, come in. Probably only for a minute or so. Yup. Starters back at 7:31, 70-38. Lowell Keaton scores for Charlotte. Armbruster hits a three. He has 15 points. Evans scores on the other end. Whitten scores his first points of the half, with 4:47 left. The JVs are in, and this one's over. The final is 79-59, a mixed bag of results for GW. They crushed them in the second half, but what was that first half?

Something they can't do against Duke. That's what.

February 7, 1985: at #2 Duke (20-1)

The Blue Devils are going to wreck George Washington if they play the way they played on Tuesday night. They are coached by lifer, Jack Howard. He has been a head coach since 1968, with Pepperdine. He then took BYU in 1974, getting them to the FInal Four. He then saw the resurgence of NC State, getting them to the NCAA Championship in 1981-82. And now, he has turned this group of Duke players into the best team in the nation.

They are deep, experienced (four starters returned from last year's team), and dynamic. Four players average double-figures, led by Joe Tu's 17.0 points a game (he also averages 6.6 rebounds). Dean Davis puts up 13.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game.

Statistically, they are almost a carbon copy of George Washington. Top-flight, efficient offense, good at rebounding, good at preventing teams from shooting well against them. Good at getting steals. The only difference is, Duke is 13-1 against the top 11, 8-1 against the top fifty. George Wasington is 7-0 against the top hundred, but they have not played a single team in the top fifty.

This is the night everyone finds out what George Washington is made of.

Duke has a 7'2 center in Keenan Venezuela. Carlton Sandberg opens with a free throw...Hulett scores for GW. Jack misses his first attempt. Tu throws down a dunk in traffic. Jack gets fouled by Tu, and scores, and gets the free throw. 5-3, GW. Tu responds, still heated after arguing the call. Jack finds Armbruster. Orville Ayer scores...Jack gets a steal, and he finds Hulett for a score. Venezuela responds. Woods scores off a Hulet pass...Dean Davis hits a three, giving Duke a 12-11 lead with thirteen minutes left.

Ayer scores. Hulett responds with a three. Ayer finds Davis. Jack, so far, is a little cold...3-1-2 for him. Hulett has seven, and now he has a steal. Jack gets fouled again by Tu. He hits both his free throws, and the game is tied once again. Sandberg scores...Woods responds. Ayer scored from inside, but Hulet gives GW a 21-20 lead with a three. Grayson's in after Armbruster commits his inevitable second foul.

Sandberg scores with 7:37 left. Kenny misses a three. Duke has been on the verge of pulling away, but they haven't been unable so far. Kenny gets a steal, but Tu gets the block. Jack has been quiet...5-2-2 so far for him. Hector ties it with a three...Jack gets a big block, then he finds Grayson. GW leads 26-24. Hector with a steal, but he misses the three. The reserves did well for GW...and the starters come back up 26-24.

Davis immediately ties it. Hulett tips in a Jack miss. It's 28-26, with 1:04 left. Hulett hits a three. He has 15...Hulett gets to the line, and he hits both. 33-26. Kenny gets fouled...he makes one of two, and George Washington has an unlikely 34-26 lead at the half. Duke had eight turnovers, to just three for GW. Jack had a very quiet 5-3-3 line, but Hulett's 17 led the way.

Davis gets a steal on the first possession, and a score. Venezuela gets another, and it's 34-30 quickley. Jack hits a three on his first shot...then he gets a steal, but Hulett misses a three. Tu, I believe, has four fouls. He comes out. Valenzuela blocks Jack...Woods charges into Sandberg. It's 39-32 after Jack scores again, 16:26 left.

Hector gets a tip-in somehow. 41-32. GW is all over the the rebounds, getting five offensive rebounds on one possession. Sandberg gets fouled by Grayson, hits one of two. Neighbors scores. Jack responds by finding Hulett. Davis gets a tip-in...Davis gets his fourth foul. Jack scores from the corner, and Duke, with their two stars in foul trouble, are having issues. Jack finds Hulett. He has 12-6-5, Hulett has 19, and it's 47-40. Chris Johnson hits a three, then gets another bucket. 47-42, 11:58 left.

Woods fouls Clement Belton...he hits both. Down to four. Armbruster gets the bucket, the foul...and he misses the FT, but Jack gets the board, and he gets fouled and scores. HE missed the free throw too. Valenzuela hits two free throws...Jack gets to the line...he hits both. 53-46 with 9:54 left.

Both teams are in the penalty. Kelly Williams hits two...Grayson scores on the other end. Sandberg responds, and Jack gets fouled. He hits both. He has 18-9-5...Ayer gets a three-point play on the other end. Jack follows that with a dunk off a miss. Belton hits, but Hulett responds with a three off a Jack pass. Belton responds, and suddenly, it's 62-57 after some incredibly high-quality basketball.

The JVs are in. Oh no. Hector gets fouled by Ayer...but they are scrapping like crazy. Ali gets a bucket. Amrando Hartsock gets two free throws. It's 64-60. The starters and Hector are in. Valenzueal scores. Hulett responds iwht a three off a Jack pass. Williams responds to that. 67-64. Jack gets to the line...he hits both. 22-12-7 for him. 5:39 left. Hartsock hits two free throws. Kenny is called for a travel...and Tommy Burns ties it on a three. 5:02 left.

Ayer gets a steal, and he gives Duke a 71-69 lead. Ayer charges into Armbruster. GW has a lid on their basket. Tu misses...Jack misses on the other end. Ayer misses a three. The tension is amazing. Jack hits a three! 72-71...Jack with a steal...but Woods misses. 1:37 left.

Ayer hits a three...74-72, Duke. 1:26 left. Kenny gets it to Hulett, he misses, Jack with a rebound, and Kenny is fouled. He gets one of two. Valenzuela hits two free throws. Ali misses a three...Jack was not on the floor. Why in the world was Jack not on the floor? Neither was Hulett?

Why in the world were your top two scorers not on the floor?

Duke escapes, 76-73. George Washington has lost. They outrebounded Duke, 42-32. They shot poorly (37%), and they lost by three. Duke shot 54%, and GW lost by three.

George Washington was the better team today. I think they got a lot more from this than most would think. They lost...but that may produce wins down the line.

Looking at it, Jack had 25 despite a bad shooting day...and 11 of his 13 boards were on the offensive end. But if you look at it, the Hulett Theory is proven here. They needed someone other than Jack or Hulett to step up. They didn't get it. Nobody else had more than five.

February 11, 1985 Poll

Rice maintained the top spot in the poll. The only real mover in the top ten was BYU moving up from 11th to 8th. GW slid down one spot, despite having Duke on the ropes, on the road, for the duration of that game.

February 11, 1985: at Arizona State (15-6)

The Sun Devils are considered a lock for the NCAA Tournament, making this a great follow-up to the Duke game. Arizona State has an explosive offense, led by forward Stephen Irvine (17.8 ppg). Point guard Thomas Trent (14.2 ppg) is a B/B star. Tony Clardy, a freshman blue-chip guard, is putting up 13 a game.

Arizona State has a top-20 defense, but a pretty bad defense (141st in the country). They are also not a team that keeps teams off the boards. This will likely be a high-scoring game, and one Jack can take over, despite the experience of the Sun Devils (four senior starters). This will be a difficult game, but one GW has experience winning.

GW has the height advantage. Kenny opens the scoring off a Jack pass. Trent shows his skill, getting a steal and drawing a charge off Hulett. Kenny gets his own steal, and he hits a three. 5-0 early on for GW. Jack gets an early foul. Clardy gets it tied up...it's only 5-5 with seven minutes gone. There are nine turnovers.

Trent hits a three...Woods is fouled by Jesse Stansbury, he gets one of two. Clardy hits another three...Hulett responds with a jumper. Ira Cho scores for ASU. Jack scores his first points from the line. It's 13-10...Ali gets a steal, finds Jack, who finds Hector. James Davis hits for ASU...Hector is fouled, and it's 15-14 with 9:35 left.

Jack gives GW a lead with a dunk off a Hulett miss. He has a 4-7-3 line. Jack gets back to the line, and he hits two more. After a week of actual time off, he seems rusty. He heads back to the line, goes 1-2. It's 21-15 with 7:27 left. Kenny hits one of two. Trent is in with two fouls. Armbruster scores off a Jack pass. Hulett fouls Trent, and he goes 1-2. Stansbury fouls Grayson, who hits both, and it's 26-16 with 5:29 left.

Irvine scores, but Denny Perez answers. He gets a free throw after, then draws a charge on Clardy. Woods scores off a Hector pass. It's 31-18, and GW's defense is clamping down. Woods scores again...then he fouls Trent. Jack finds Armbruster. It's 35-23. Davis scores...Jack finds Hector. He has a 7-8-6 line. Clardy hits a three, and it's 37-26 with 3:15 left.

Jack scores. Trent throws down a dunk in respect. Jack finds Hulett, then blocks Clardy. Jack throws down a dunk on Cho and gets fouled, but he misses another free throw. It's 43-28 at the half.

Jack had an 11-11-7 line. Davis scores to open the second half. Jack gets a steal, and gets a dunk. Clardy has 11 for ASU, Trent eight. Davis has seven. Jack scores again...Clardy responds to that. It's 47-35 with 16:12 left. Davis gets a tip, but Jack responds by finding Hulett for three. Davis scores again, and GW turns it over. Clardy scores, and it's 50-41.

Jack scores from the corner. Irvine hits a three. 52-44. Clardy hits another three, and GW calls time. Irvine gets a steal, and Trent finds Davis. Jack gets a twisting layup...Woods gets a steal, Jack gets fouled by irvine, and he hits both. He has 21-11-8 here. It's 56-49. Stansbury responds to that, but Jack finds Woods. Jack scores inside...he gets a board, brings it down, and scores again. It's 62-51, and ASU's run has subsided. Of course. Trent scores out of that statement.

Clardy has 20, as the subs for everyone coming in.Lynn Jiles scores...but Hector gets the bucket, and the foul. 65-56 with 8:13 left. Ali scores. Grayson gets a big block, and the starters return after a tied up. Boutwell stays in, and he gets a steal. Jack draws a charge on Trent. Trent responds with a three, getting it back to ten. Trent fouls Hector, who scores both. Four fouls on Trent...same for Hulett and Woods. Jack finds Hulett for a score, then scores himself. It's 29-13-10 for Jack, and a 75-63 lead for GW with 3:45 left.

Jack gets two free throws. He is over thirty. Hulett scores off a Jack pass. Jack scores on a drive. It's 81-63, and this one's over. The subs come in...Ali scores a three, but this one is well over. The final is 86-63, and Jack was dominant. 33 points on 12-19 shooting, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, four blocks, three steals.

February 13, 1985: at Georgia Southern (9-14)

The Eagles have gone from an up-and-coming NCAA darling, in Jack's freshman season, to a return to afterthought status. They went 8-21 last year, and are 9-14 in this campaign. They have just two seniors on the roster, and only four juniors. They're led by Scott Adkins (12.3 ppg, 6.4 rpg). Leading rebounder Jack Clement (8.4 rpg, 7.6 rpg) is banged up, but should play. They are a rotten team on offense, and playing a defensively superior team like GW should swallow them up.

Armbruster hits a free throw to open things up. Jack gets a steal, but is blocked by Kip Blackstock. Yup, it's the 80s. Armbruster scores inside...Jack gets a block of Adkins. Blackstock gets the Eagles on the board, and Cleveland gets a three-point play. Jack hits a three to get started himself. With four minutes gone, it's 6-5.

This game is setting the game back thirty years. Jack finds Armbruster for the score, then finds him again. Rudolph Lyons hits a three. 10-8, GW. Kenny gets a steal, but Jack gets blocked again. Darron O'Kelley hits a three, but Jack responds. He has a 5-5-2 line. They repeat that process, O'Kelly three, Jack responds, and it's tied. Hector hits a three...and now the subs are in. Adkins hits...17-16 with 9:12 left.

Ali scores, the Kipper walks, and the starters are back. Lyons gets a steal and a layup. Armbruster fouls O'Kelley, who ties it. Hulett hits two free throws. Jack gets a board, brings it up, finds himself open, and drills it. The Kipper hits a three, but Armbruster gets a dunk. The Kipper ties it with another three, but Jack responds. The Kipper scores again. Cleveland fouls Armbruster, who scores. He has 11. It's 29-27. Jack has an 11-7-2 line at the moment.

Jack hits two from the line. Kevin Johnson scores for GS. Hector scores, and gets fouled. Jorge Funk gets the ball stolen, but steals it back and gets the layup. Jack breaks the press, throws it down with the foul...Funk scores inside, and Kipper gets a charge on Hector. Woods scores, but the Kipper scores. He has 12, and it's 38-35. Funk fouls Grayson, who scores two. Two minutes left, it's 42-35.

Woods is fouled by Blackstock, and he hits two. The Kipper hits a three. He has 15. The half ends 44-38...Jack has 16-7-2. GW has outrebounded the Eagles 18-13. They should pull away early on here.

Woods fouls Funk, who hits one of two to start the half. Funk scores. I said GW should pull away early. Jack scores. 46-41. Jack finds Armbruster. The Kipper walks, but Jack tosses it into the stands. Jack scores, giving him 20 for the game. He follows that with a three. He has a 23-8-3 line, and it's 53-41 with 14:02 left.

Nothing happens for awhile. The GW defense has clamped down, as it often does. Jack's up to a double-double (23-10-3); Lyons hits a three, then Jack scores from inside. Kenny gets a steal, and gets it to Jack for the layup. Kipper hits his first points of the half. It's 57-50 after Lyons hits a three, prompting a GW timeout.

Kipper blocks a Hulett three, and Funk is founed by Grayson, who gets the three-point play. Jack scores, but Lyons cuts it to three with a three. Denny Perez gets the bucket, the foul, and the free throw. 7:48 left, and the JVs are in. Hector with a steal, but Ali messes it up. Jack and Hulett return.

On cue, Jack finds Hulett. Jack has a 29-10-5 line. Stephen Higgins gets an offensive rebound dunk. Perez responds with a three. He has six big points here. 67-58. Jack goes to the line, hits both, and it's 69-58. The Kipper fouls Jack...he has four fouls, and Jack hits both. Kenny gets a steal, and Armbruster scores. It's 73-58, and GW has gotten away from GS. Jack gets fouled, and goes one of two. Three minutes left.

Jack gets a steal, and he's fouled. He hits both. The starters remain in for another possession, before finally giving way. The final is 78-66. The team didn't play too well, save for Jack and Armbruster, who had 15 on 7-9 shooting.

February 15, 1985: vs Centenary (4-18)

The Gentlemen give up 78.5 points a game. They have one player averaging more than nine points a game (Kenny Manzano - 17.5). They are putrid offensively, and get outscored by 14.8 points a game, on average. That's 232nd out of 234 teams.

Get the win. Don't get hurt. Those are the goals.

Jack throws down a dunk to start things. Joshua King scores for the Gentlemen. Jack finds Hulett for a hoop. Jack gets a steal, but Hulett misses a three. Jack finds Hulett later on, and Woods scores. It's 8-2 with 16:18 left. Jack hits a three, and the Gentlemen call time.

King throws it out of bounds off of that. Jack is fouled, and he hits both. 13-2. Jonathan Chaparro scores for the Gents. Jack gets a steal, and Hector gets fouled...he gets one of two. Manzano scores...Jack takes a break. He comes back and scores, making it 16-8. Joe Lapierre hits a three. Jack has a 7-0-3 line so far, but it's 16-13 with ten minutes left.

Jack gets to the line, and hits both. Chaparro responds. Then Chaparro scores again. It's down to one...and Centenary takes a 20-18 after a three by Brian Turk. Kenny ties it with a breakaway. Jack gets fouled...Manzano doesn't like the home cooking, and gets T'd up. Jack hits all four, making it 24-22. Jack finds Ali for three...Damien Perlman responds with one. Jack gets two freebies, and then a steal, and an assist for Kenny. Armbruster draws a charge, and Woods tips in a Jack miss. It's 33-25 with 4:22 left.

Tony Mata hits two free throws. Grayson gets to the line, he gets one of two. 34-27. Jack gets a block...he has a 15-2-5 line. Make that 17-3-5 after he tips in his own miss. Hector with a steal and a dunk. Then he fouls Perlman, who hits both. 38-29. Perez gets fouled, get the hoop, and the free throw. Jack tips in a Woods miss. It's 43-29 with a minute left. Chapparo gets one of two freebies, but King scores. The half ends at 45-33. Jack has a 19-6-5 line. King has nine for Centenary...they shot 58%, offsetting their 12 turnovers.

Jack finds Kenny for three; he has ten points, and Jack takes a seat for a moment. Chaparro scores for the Gents. He does so again. He has 13...Patterson scores for GW. Jack returns; Hulett gets a steal, but nothing comes of it. 10:29 left, it's 59-45.

Jack charges into Joseph Penn for his second foul. He has a 19-9-8 line. Armbruster scores. Woods tips in a Hulett miss. Allan Townsly scores, and Jack finds Hulett for three. 66-48, Jack has a 19-10-9 line. He completes the triple-double with a pass to Perez. Jack finds Hulett, who now has nine points. Then he finds Kenny. Centenary keeps playing hard...it's 72-54 with 2:36 left, and the starters are still in. Jack finds Armbruster, and that should wrap it up. Kenny with a steal, and he gets a lob to Jack for a thunderous dunk. Penn scores, there's a foul, and GW clears their bench. The final is 76-59...Jack shot an abysmal 5-18, but had 21-13-10, with three steals and a block.

February 17, 1985: vs Farleigh Dickinson (14-10)

The Knights are another team that could easily be 8-16, rather than 14-10. They have one player who averages double figures (Chris Butcher: 12.0). Arron Lewin stands out for his ability and his double r's. Renato Kinlaw is an able rebounder. They are missing two guys for this one, depth guys, but they are going to suffer for it.

They are, for their lack of overall ability, a fantastic three-point team. The Knights rank second in the nation, at 42.5% from behind the line. It will be interesting to see how GW stops them; GW is 16th in the nation at holding teams to 30.3% from behind the arc.

John Israel hits a three to open the game. Lewin tells me what I an do with his two R's, and he gets a steal and a dunk. Jak finds Hulett, but John Daniels scores. Then Kinlaw sores. It's 9-2, FD.

Daniels sores again. Jak misses a dunk. GW is flummoxed. Jack finds Hulett for the sore. Jack is cold to start, but he gets to the line for his first two points. It's 13-7 with 12:29 left. Kenny scores, and gets fouled. He hits the freebie, cutting it to 13-10. Hulett charges, and Hector comes in.

Jack scores from the wing, then gets a steal. He finds Kenny for the hoop. GW leads 14-13. James Jameson is in the game for FD. He argues a call, then scores. Jack finds Grayson, giving GW a 16-15 lead with 7:32 left. This is uninspiring basketball.

Jack comes out...Hulett gets to the line, but he misses. Hector gets to the line, and he hits both. Jack comes back with a 4-6-4 line, and an 18-15 lead. Woods makes one of two. Kenny gets a steal, and Jack scores from inside. Lewin gets to the line, but he misses the front end. Its 21-15 with five minutes to go.

Larry Wolfe hits a three. He'd go on to own a waterbed company that owns local television with sleezy commercials. Jack hits a three. It's 26-18, and GW is beginning to roll. Jack has a 9-8-4 ine. Daniels hits two free throws, and FD goes into a press. Jack breaks it, then finds Grayson. Jameson answers. Jack finds Ali for three. Denny Perez gets a steal and a hoop. Ali gets a steal, but Jack misses the easy layup. FD has ten turnovers; GW has six. Jack scores at the buzzer, making it 35-22 at the break. He has an 11-8-6 line. Daniels had six for FD.

Jack finds Armbruster to open the second half. Hulett gets a steal (he has three fouls, of course)...nothing comes of that. It's 37-22 with a minute gone. Jack misses his first two attempts. Woods fouls Kinlaw, who goes one of two. Jack gets an offensive board, but misses the putback. He then gets his own miss and throws it home. He's 1-5 or so this half. So he finds Hulett. He's got a 13-10-8 line...Lewin scores to make it 41-25.

Jack is shooting in volume, but he cannot connect. Hector dunks it home on Chris Butcher, gets fouled, and the freebie! Woods with a steal and a flush, and it's 46-27! Jack takes a seat, as Lewin makes two free throws. Jack comes right back. Jack is fouled, and hits both free throws. It's 48-29 with 12:35 left.

Kenny charges into Daniels. Jack finds Woods for a basket. John Israel scores. Jack responds to that. Israel responds to Jack, making it 52-33. GW is shooting 15% from three. Jack has quite a few of those misses. He takes a break for Ali, with eight minutes left to go. Daniels hits two freebies, and Jack comes back. The team is trying to get him his tenth assist. Steven Yanez scores. Armbruster scores on Jack's tenth assist, with 6:42 left. Lewin hits two free throws, and Jack charges into Butcher for his first foul. Lewin beats the press and scores, GW calls time. Jack finds Hector, then Hector gets a steal and a bucket. Austin Patterson hits a three. Its 58-44. Jack gets a tip in of a Woods miss. He has a 19-15-11 line right now. Woods finds Armbruster, and this is about over here.

Sleezy Larry Wolfe hits a three. Jack comes out with the score 62-49. Kenny gets to the line, and he hits both. He has but seven points. John Israel beats GW's press, then gets a steal. Jack comes back, and Hector heads to the line. He misses. 1:41 left. Austin Patterson drills a three. Ten point game. But FD doesn't foul...interesting. This one will end with bad time management. The final is 64-54, and Jack has POTG, despite a second-straight bad night in shooting the ball. He also only got to the line four times. He seems to be running on auto-pilot at the moment.

February 23, 1985: vs Long Island (16-13)

The Blackbirds are still fighting for a NIT berth. They have the most interesting post combination in Barry Rugman and Timmy McBroom. Sure, Timmy McVacuum would have been better, but still, you have to think the coaches enjoyed this one.


(1979 Conversation)
Trey O'Brien, Recruiting Coordinator: Hey, skip, I have our next post men.
Tyson Millsap, Head Coach: Who you got?
O'Brien: This kid, Timmy McBroom...and...heh heh...
Millsap: What?
O'Brien: Oh, nothing. We'll pair him with...(more laughing)...
Millsap: What are you laughing at?
(Chris Rivas, Assistant Coach, enters the room)
Rivas: What's good, fellas?
Millsap: O'Brien seemed to come down with the laughing clap.
Rivas: I told you that librarian was bad news.
Millsap: What?
O'Brien: No no...McBroom and...Bar(more laughing)
Millsap: For God sake's man, just get it out!
O'Brien: Barry Rugman!
Millsap and Rivas: ...........
O'Brien: (uncontrollable laughter)
Rivas: That's not even a connectable pun. You don't use a broom on a rug.
O'Brien (still laughing): They're both floor references! Oh, that's a dandy! On the cover of the Blackbird...These Guys Really Clean Up! Steady As The Floor! Get Funky Fresh With The Rugman And The McBroom!
(Millsap turns to Rivas.)
Millsap: Next season, I'm moving you to recruiting coordinator.


And so, he did. O'Brien's bad pun did help the Blackbirds reach the Elite Eight last season, as an #11 seed. They were the leading rebounders on the 24-9 squad. Now, they are the best of what's left. Leading player Willis Zimmer, one of the greatest players in school history (fifth in scoring, second in assists), is gone. So is Millsap, having used that Cinderella run to bolt to Miami-Ohio. Rivas took his place, and is trying to keep this team afloat.

McBroom is scoring 9.8 points a game, and getting 11.5 rebounds. Rugman is averaging 7.2 points and 7.9 boards. Leading scorer Garret Watson is putting up 16.3 points a game. But, truth be told, they haven't played anyone (1-4 against the top 50, RPI of 102), they don't shoot well, and their defensive stats are rather mediocre. This should be a walkover for the Colonials, even if Jack continues his triple-doubling, mediocre-scoring rut.

Jack gets a steal immediately, but they cannot connect. Hulett opens things with a three, after GW gets two blocks of LI on their opening actual possession. Tyron Navarro gets a dunk after two McBroom freebies. Jack makes his first shot. Then he hits a three. Hulett gets a steal, but Delmar Gilmore steals it right back. He would try for a bit role in the Gilmore Girls, but lost the role after he suggested the title get changed to "Gilmore Girls And A Guy". Kenny hits a three off a Jack pass. It's 13-7.

Jack sits as Grayson and Hetor enter. Grayson doesn't last, as Jack comes right back. He has a 5-4-1 line with 12:28 left. Jack drills a three...then he finds Armbruster. 18-7. Gene Moton scores for LI. Armbruster tips in Hulett's missed three. Woods has a few blocks already here. Hulett hits a three, but Liam Ludwig counters. Hulett gets a steal, and finds Woods for the bucket. Jack finds Armbruster, who now has six. Grayson enters with the score 27-12. Hector finds Jack, and Kenny gets a steal and a breakaway. He has five. It's 31-12 with 6:26 left.

Jack drills a three. He's up to 13-7-3. Woods gets a steal; GW has seven steals and six blocks, and LI is shooting 21%. LI is getting frustrated, and has started fouling a bit more. Ludwig gets two freebies...34-14. Gene Moton takes things over, whih leads to one point. Jack throws down Perez' miss with a dunk, and McBroom counters. McBroom drills a three off a Navarro steal. Hulett scores. 38-20. Jack gets a steal and a dunk. He's got a 17-9-3, and it's 40-20.

Jack gets to the line, a rarity for him lately. He hits both. McBroom gets one of two...he has eight points and five boards. Hulett drills one before the buzzer, and GW ends the half doubling up LI, 44-22. Jack has 19-10-3.

Jack hits the first shot of the second half, then commits his first foul. Armbruster scores off a Hulett pass. Gilmore throws down a dunk for LI. Kenny scores off an Armbruster pass. Rugman scores his first points. Jack finds Kenny. GW holds a 24-15 rebounding advantage. Rugman scores again. It's 52-28. McBroom blocks Jack. Jack gets two steals in a row, but can't connect on anything. Jack finds Armbruster. Armbruster has ten, and now two assists, as he finds Woods. Jack has a 21-10-5 line, and it's 58-28.

McBroom hits another three. He has 11. Jack finds Hulett. Ludwig hits two free throws. McBroom blocks Jack again. Jack gets a steal, then finds Armbruster. Jack gets another steal, and Kenny finds Armbruster. It's 64-33. Gilmore with a steal and a layup. Jack is misfiring so far this half. Rugman scores and gets fouled by Woods. The JV's come in with nine minutes left.

Jack re-enters and finds Hector, who is having a quiet game. Hector gets a steal and finds Jack. GW has 14 steals, and 19 assists. McBroom blocks Jack AGAIN. Jack coaxes a foul and hits two free throws. It's 76-43 with 6;08 left. Perez finds Hulett, who has a quiet 17 for the game. Jack scores inside, away from McBroom. Moton hits a three. Jack finds Denny...he's got 27-11-9. But he gets pulled with the score 82-46. He won't get a third-straight triple-double. Oh well.

The final is 84-59. Thorough beatdown, though Jack shot only 10-21. He's definitely cold offensively. He was 3-8 from three, making him 7-13 from the field. He did finish with seven steals though.

February 25, 1985 Poll

Duke stayed atop the poll, while Rice gained three first-place votes, and slid back into second. Missouri fell to #11 Kansas State, and slipped one spot. George Washington stayed at #7, not too far away from Cornell at #6.

February 27, 1985: at Georgetown (10-17)

Things haven't gone well for the Hoyas in the Big East, but, then again, nothing goes right in the Big East. They have a pretty good starting five...not one that will contend with GW, but relatively close (three G/G, two Y/G). Their bench is hideous, though. And they don't play defense, giving up 70.4 points a game. James Hermann leads the offense, with 15.8 points a game. There are three three-year starters on this team, who played on the group that played in back-to-back NCAA Tournaments. This is unacceptable for this program.

But, here we are.

Jack finds Woods for the opening points, who gets fouled and the free throw. Hermann hits a three for Georgetown. Elvin Mitchell follows that up with a score, and Jack gets his first points in response. Jack goes one of two from the line, then gets a steal and finds Armbruster. It's 8-8 with 16:10 left.

Jack gets fouled by Nathan Long on a three; he converts the triple, then gets another steal. He gets yet another board, and scores. Joey Loque scores, making it 13-11, GW. Jack finds Hector as he comes in. He has an 8-6-3 line with 14:07 to go.

Jack drills a three...18-16, GW. Mitchell hits two free throws, making it 18-17. Georgetown is 7-3 at home...Jack drills another shot. Armbruster throws down a dunk. Jack fouls Hermann for his first. Oh well. Kenny scores off a Jack pass, then Jack gets a steal...but misses the layup. It's 25-23 with 8:22 left...Ali scores in relief of Jack, gets fouled, and the freebie. It's 28-23 with 7:53 left.

Kenny gets fouled...he goes one of two. Charlie Rhoades scores, then gets a steal, but they can't convert the tying three. It's 29-26 as Hector goes to the line. He hits both, and Jack returns with a 13-8-4 line. Hector stays aggressive, and gets to the line. He hits one of two. Ali hits a three...it's 35-27. Jack's up to a double-double (15-10-4) as he scores. Then he commits his second foul.

Jack finds Hector for the score. Hector gets a steal, and John Olson gets T'd up. Jack hits the freebies, and Hector hits his free throws for the foul. It's 43-27, and Georgetown has lost all grip on this game. Rhoades quells the chaos with a steal and a layup...Woods gets his third foul. 25 fouls total here. Jack gets an offensive board and put back. He's got 19-12-5, and it's 46-31.

Jack with yet another steal...GW has eight. Jack finds Ali for the bucket...Clark Banuelos scores for GTown. Denny Perez is in, and he hits both free throws. Jack secures one more rebound at the end of the half. It's 50-33. GW holds a 22-13 edge, punctuated by Jack's fourteen boards. They also have eight steals, though GTown has five. Georgetown has 13 turnovers, to eight for GW. Jack has an 19-14-6 line here, while Hector has nine. Elvin Mitchell has ten points and five rebounds.

Hulett went scoreless in that first half, as he sat with three fouls. Rhoades hits a three, and Hulett gets his first points, off a Jack pass. Rhoades scores again. Nathan Long's line: one point, one rebound, three fouls. Rhoades scores again. It's 52-40. Hulett drills a three off a Hector pass. Hermann hits two free throws, but Jack hits a three in response. Kenny gets a steal, but GW can't score. Jack's missing again. Kenny gets two free throws, making it 60-42 with 13:31 left.

Jack gets a steal, and Woods eventually scores. Jack's up to 22-17-7 for his line, as he takes a seat with 11:50 left. He coems back twenty seconds later. Woods throws down a dunk, two-hand style. Jack finds Hulett for a bucket. Hermann hits a three, but Armbruster finds Hulett for three. Jack gets yet another steal. Jack scores...he also got Long's fourth foul. Pretty sure Long fouled Jack four times. It's 71-50, GW. Jack scores off a Hector pass...Woods with a steal, but he was so elated over it, he threw it into the stands. Jack gets ANOTHER steal...then he gets his 20th rebound. He has a 26-20-8 line. Hermann hits a three. 73-55. He comes out with four minutes left...can't imagine he'll be back. Hulett scores, and Jack comes back. Nevermind. Rhoades gets hurt. Kenny fouls, the starters come out, and this is over. The final is 79-61, and GW rules DC once again.

Jack shot 9-20, going 2-5 from three. He had seven steals, and a whopping 21 rebounds. I think that's the high-water mark for his career. Hermann finished with 20 for Georgetown.

March 4, 1985 Poll

Duke (26-1) is atop the poll again, though they lost two more first-plae votes to Rice (26-2). The rest of the top five remains the same. BYU jumped up three spots, from ninth to sixth. That dropped GW one spot, to eighth.

March 5, 1985: at East Carolina (21-8)

The Pirates offer a significant challenge, with a RPI of 32, and a resume that considers them a lock for the NCAA Tournament. They own wins over Cornell and at #19 Virginia. They also went to Duke, and lost, 67-51. They are coming off a loss to Davidson in their last game, and a loss at 11-19 Appalachian State a couple of weeks ago.

The Pirates own a top-20 offense (18th), though not a particularly great defense (109th). They rebound well, but allow others to rebound well. They are second, nationally, in defense against the three. For a team that loves to shoot it, this spells disaster for the Colonials. David Ebner needs a veteran team (all five starters returned from last year, and they've grown), averaging 17.1 points and 7.2 rebounds a game. They are diverse on offense, as eight players average at least 6.1 points a game. One of those players, Robert Milligan, is out with an injury.

The point here is, this team is dangerous, and not to be trifled with. This begs the question: Have you ever heard someone trifle with someone? Or someone proclaim, "Well, I've had it with Lance. I'm off to trifle with him." No? Me either.

ECU gets three shots on their first possession. Michael Lingenfelter scores, then Ebner scores. Armbruster gets a free throw. Jack scores, gets fouled by Lingenfelter, and hits the free throw. Tie game with 16:49 left. Ebner scores, gets fouled by Woods, and gets the freebie. Ebner fouls Woods, who hits both. It's 7-6 with five minutes gone.

Grayson comes in for Woods (two fouls) and fouls himself. Ebner gets two free throws, then gets his second foul. Grayson scores two. Milan Orozco scores. It's 11-7. Kenny drills a three off a Hector pass, then gets a steal, but Hector can't drain. RIchard Bloomfield hits a three. Jack finds Hector for three, making it 16-13 with 10:53 left.

Orozco scores again. Nicolas Lindgren fouls Hector, who hits both freebies. Rudinger Haefner hits a three. It's 21-15. Jack is out...Armbruster scores. Haefner hits two free throws. Jack comes in and gets fouled, and he hits two. It's 23-19. Joe Savoie scores. Armbruster gets a steal, and Hector hits a three. 25-22. Hector with a steal and a layup, and it's down to one for ECU. Armbruster tips in his own miss to give GW a lead. Jack fouls...he has only a 5-4-1 line so far. Hulett scores, and Ebner counters. Hulett scores off a Jack pass. GW back up by one.

Ebner scores inside...he leads all with 11. Hulett heads to the line, and hits both. 32-31 GW. Armbruster gets a steal and a dunk. Then Armbruster fouls. Haefner hits one of two. Armbruster gets fouled, and goes one of two, but Jack gets the board...GW gets called for the shot clock. Woods fouls again...Savoie hits two. Jack finds Hulett. Then Hector finds Hulett. It's 39-34. Jack gets fouled by Lingenfelter, gets it, and hits the free throw. It's 42-34...Ebner hits again. Hector hits two free throws. Daniel Cluff gets a tip in...Hector beats the press again, then ECU cracks GW's. Cluff hits a bucket right at the buzzer, and the score is 46-42, in a fantastic affair. Jack has an 8-6-3 line. Hector has 14, Hulett 10, and Armbruster has eight points and six rebounds. Ebner has 13 for ECU.

Jack misses the first shot of the half, but forces a violation on Lingenfelter. Kenny gets a steal, but chucks it away. Ebner opens the scoring, then gets a steal, but Jack counters. Kenny scores off a Jack pass. Jack gets his second foul. Jack finds Woods...it's 50-44. Ebner scores...he has 17, Jack counters with a dunk. He has 10-7-5. Jack gets fouled by Lingenfelter, and hits both free throws.

Hulett hits two free throws, making it 56-46. Woods gets fouled, and he gets one of two. ECU has gone a bit cold. Kenny throws down a dunk off a Jack lob. Kenny has seven points. Jack has a 12-10-6 line, as he sits.

McKinley Cleary scores for ECU. Woods gets fouled, and hits both. Savoie hits two free throws, but Hulett counters. Bloomfield hits two free throws, making it 63-52. Jack gets a steal, but Armbruster cannot connect. He does have eight points and ten boards. Grayson hits two free throws. Savoie scores inside. Woods is fouled by Savoie, and he hits two. Woods then fouls Savoie. It's obvious these two don't like one another. Jack finds Armbruster for a score. Lingenfelter gets to the line, and he hits both. It's 69-58, as Jack is fouled. He gets both...he has 14-10-7, and now four fouls.

Lingenfelter hits both free throws. Hulett beats the press and gets the dunk. Hulett gets a steal and a dunk. It's 75-60, and GW is in control. Hector drills a three, and ECU calls time. This got away from them quick. Jack comes back and gets fouled. He hits both. Ebner scores, making it 80-63. Jack finds Hulett for a bucket. He has 16-12-8, and gets back to the line. He hits both, and the starters come out, up 84-63. The final is 86-67, and this was, very much, a quality team victory.


Hulett had 20, while Hector had 17. Jack only shot eight times, making three...but he went 12-12 from the line. The team had 12 steals. Armbruster had a double-dime (10 points, 10 boards). Ebner led ECU with 19.

George Washington finishes the regular season at 28-1, with their only loss coming, on the road, by three, to the #1 ranked team in the nation. Last year, they had one loss, got into the top ten, and were given a #5-seed. Will they receive such an injustice again this year? Logically, they would gain the #1 seed in the East. A more realistic prediction will place them in the South, as a #4, with Duke.

It won't matter. They already won as a #5 seed, and this team is likely better than that. And, as they play as they did against East Carolina, I'm not sure who can beat them.

Statistically, this is Jack's worst season. His blocks were way down, for some reason. He shot more this year, at a worse rate than any other season. Of course, he's the best player on the planet, so his worst season is still light years ahead of anyone else.

So with team prestige rising from 29 to 63 in Jack's time, it sounds like GW needs four more years of Jack to enter "blue blood" territory

Also, taking a look at his stats for the year, it does not appear that Jack had his worst season. His +/- was the highest of all four years, while his shot volume was the second lowest (higher as an underclassman) although the shooting efficiency took a hit over the last month.

Looking forward to seeing how the final March plays out and just how high the numbers get. If the Colonials make it back to the title game then 3500 points is in reach.

Final Regular Season Poll


Duke finished the regular season 28-1, and atop the poll...where they started it. Rice started the year #2, and they end at #2. They also gained considerably votes on Duke: The Blue Devils have 54 first-place votes, while Rice has 17. Southern Cal also snagged one, despite being ranked fourth. They are 29-2, though.

George Washington finished the year at #8.

Conference Tournament Recap

ACC: Wake Forest finished in a three-way tie for last in the ACC, at 4-8. They were the last seed, #7, in the conference tournament. Their overall record was 22-10, though, and they ran through second-seed Maryland, third-seed Virginia, and toppled #1 Duke, 81-76, to claim victory. It is entirely possible, though unlikely, that all seven ACC teams reach the NCAA Tournament. Right now, five of the seven (including Wake) were already considered locks, while North Carolina (18-12) and NC State (17-12) were considered in. This should not damage Duke's #1 candidacy, but strengthen George Washington's.

Big East: The #4 seed, St. John's, will be dancing at 16-16. The Johnnies beat #2 Seton Hall (17-15), 72-64. The Johnnies knocked out top-seeded Connecticut, 79-60, to reach the final. #3 Pitt, who was considered in going into the conference tournament, may be on the outside now. They fell to sixth-seeded BC, 66-64.

ECC: If the Big East wasn't worried with their own tournament, they should be here. Tenth-seeded American, who was 3-8 in conference play, ran the table in similar fashion to Wake--beating #2 St. Joe's, #3 Lafayette, and crushing #1 La Salle (72-59)--to earn the tourney berth. The ECC was expected to get four teams in. Now, American, at 19-15, may have dropped someone out.

Ohio Valley: The hits continue, though this isn't nearly as upset. #4 Morehead State was already considered in, at 21-12. They beat #3 East TN State, 70-59, to get in. #2 Middle TN State may be hurt the most, as they lost in the first round to seventh-seed Austin Peay, 80-72.

Southern: #2 East Carolina won the Southern Conference bid, 77-66 over fourth-seeded Citadel. Both teams are considered to be in, as is #1 Davidson.


NCAA Tournament Selection Show

Rice was the top-seed in the West. That should have immediately set off alarms, especially when Southern Cal wasn't the #2 seed there. Missouri got the top seed in the Midwest, with BYU the #2. That means Southern Cal was headed east, and would be the top seed. That also meant George Washington was about to get hit, again, with an unfavorable draw.

All things considered, getting the #2 seed in the South is not the end of the world. Sure, Duke is the top seed, but GW knows it can hang with the Blue Devils already. And there are several potential trips down memory lane for Jack and company...for instance, a second-round matchup with Wake, a third-round potential matchup with Princeton, along with Yale being in the other half of the bracket...East Carolina is the #8 seed, and, of course, Duke
Here are the matchups, along with the picks:


West
1) Rice (29-2) vs 16) American (19-15)
8) Oregon State (23-7) vs 9) Loyola Marymount (22-8)
4) Pennsylvania (22-8) vs 13) Lafayette (19-13)
5) Clemson (21-10) vs 12) Arizona State (17-12)
2) Kansas State (24-7) vs 15) Pittsburgh (21-10)
7) Michigan State (22-8) vs 10) Long Beach State (20-8)
3) Colorado State (21-7) vs 14) Kent State
6) Columbia (19-12) vs 11) La Salle (19-12)

Second Round:
Rice over Oregon State, Clemson over Penn
Kansas State over Long Beach St, La Salle over Colorado State

Semifinal: Rice over Clemson; Kansas State over La Salle
Final: Rice over Kansas State

Notes: All seven ACC teams received berths...first-time bids: Army, Connecticut, Hardin-Simmons, Loyola-Illinois, Pittsburgh, Wyoming...Michigan State reached the NCAA for the third time, and two years removed from a 6-24 season...this is American's first berth since 1954-55...Hofstra is in the tournament for just the second time, and the second time in three seasons...Lafayette has two Elite Eight appearances (1965-66, 1967-68)...Canisius has reached the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season; they were first-timers last year...Kent State is making their first appearance since 1960-61; they are 0-2 in two appearances...Western Michigan has made four straight postseason appearances, after never reaching the second season once before 1981-82 (this year's 15-13 miracle squad won the MAC)...the MEAC has only earned three bids to the NCAA Tournament; SC State reached the last three dances, gaining a victory in the first round each time; they were relegated to the NIT, as the MEAC was shut out this year...SC State does have seven straight postseason appearances, after never once reaching the postseason...this is Cal's fifth-straight NCAA appearance; they reached the Elite Eight last year...Florida's 29-2 record is, far and away, the best record in school history...ECU is back in the postseason after a two-year absence...the Southland was denied entry into the tournament this year, though Texas-Arlington reached the NIT...Southern Methodist, a traditional power in the Southwest, has now gone without the postseason in three of the last year fours, and four in the last six...until 1978-79, they had never failed to reach the second season, and had reached nine straight NCAAs, and fifteen straight before that...they have four Elite Eights, and won Final Four, but with a loaded roster, could only manage a 12-17 (1-13) record in the Southwest (which may be the toughest in the nation, outside of the ACC)...Loyola Marymount has reached the NCAA for only the third time...the WAC placed six in the NCAA, including Wyoming, who is dancing for the first time...this is Rhode Island's first trip to the NCAA since 1954-55, when they went 25-6...


Teams that have never reached the NCAA:
(* denotes no postseason experience)
Boston College, Syracuse, Villanova, Gonzaga*, Idaho State*, Lehigh*, West Chester, Air Force, Ball State*, Buffalo, Butler, Cal State Los Angeles, Centenary, Charleston Southern, Charlotte, Cleveland State, Creighton, Denver, Duquesne, Fairfield, Fairleigh Dickinson, Fordham, Georgia State, Georgia Tech*, Hawaii, Houston Baptist, Indiana State*, Iona, Memphis, Mercer, Milwaukee, Navy, Niagara, Northeastern, Northern Illinois, Oklahoma City, Penn State, Portland*, Portland State, Rutgers, Saint Louis, Samford, South Alabama, St. Bonaventure, St. Francis (PA), St. Peter's*, Stetson, TX-Pan American, UC Santa Barbara, VCU, Virginia Tech, Xavier, Howard, Maryland-Eastern Shore, North Carolina A&T, North Texas* (Jack's first loss), Wichita State*, Oregon, Washington State, Georgia, Mississippi State, Furman, William & Mary*, Arkansas State, Lamar, Louisiana Tech, Boston U*, Holy Cross, Maine*, Massachusetts, New Hampshire*, Vermont

(Unlike real life, Northwestern has one NCAA experience, in 1964-65.)

1984-85 NCAA Tournament, Round 1: vs Alabama (19-11)

The Crimson Tide has reached the NCAA in two of the last three seasons; before that, they went through an eleven-year drought. The expansion of the field has been beneficial to the Tide. Record-wise, this is their best team since the 1970-71 group that went 24-7. Statistically, though, nothing stands out about them. They are middle-of-the-road in every aspect.

They do have a pretty good starting group, one that has been together for the past two seasons. Jerry Richardson is a four-year starter, having started all of the 118 games he has played. He's averaged 9.8 points and 6.3 rebounds this year. The leading scorer, James Hershey, is putting up 15.1 per game. They have been without lead guard, Myron Hoang, for the past seven games. He should play in this one, though he may show rust. Going against all of the options GW throws at you, he will have his hands full.

Clement Nelson scores to open things up. Future Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is playing for Bama. Woods scores first for GW. Richardson scores, but Jack counters on his first shot. Patrick Crouse scores. Jack drills a three, then commits his first foul and sits for a moment. Jack comes back after thirty seconds and finds Hector. Armbruster is arguing a call...no good there. Kenny gets a steal, which leads to Jack getting to the line. He has a 7-2-1 line, and it's 11-7.

Jack gets an assist on Hulett's first points. Nicky Douglas gets fouled by Denny Perez, and scores...the free throw makes it 13-10. Jack hits a three. He has two. Jack finds Ali for three, making it 20-10..Jack with a steal, and he gets it to Grayson for the easy bucket. 22-10 and Bama calls time.

GW gets four looks at a bucket, but can't connect. Hershey hits a three to get on the board. Jack is on the bench for now. Mark Deeds is in...he goes 1-2. GW is cold, and Bama can get back into this. Hoang hits. Hershey hits a three, and it's 22-19. Jack comes back in and goes to the center spot. Nelson goes one of two from the line. Woods counters with a basket. Jack gets a layup...26-20. Nelson gets a tip-in, but Hulett hits a three. Hershey gets a free throw, but Jack finds Kenny. He has a 12-5-5 line, and it's 31-23.

Jack finds Hulett, who now has seven. Hershey hits a three. 33-26. Michael King gets in for the first time in agets...Jack finds Hulett. The Jack-at-center lineup is working well against Alabama. Jack goes back to the 3, and hits a three. Marco Stephens is in, and he scores for Bama. Hoang hits two free throws...At the half, it's 38-30, GW. Bama had neither a block nor a steal in the half, but GW was low in their numbers (2/1), too. Jack has a 15-6-7 line.

Bama opens with a miss. Jack gets two offensive rebounds on the first possesion, which leads to a Hulett bucket. Jack finds Armbruster. Nelson throws one down. Jack misses his first shot of the second half, but hits his first three. Kenny with a steal and a layup, and the score is 47-35. Jack gets a block...GW is all over the offensive boards this half. Jack commits his second foul, then his third back-to-back. Then his fourth. For crying out loud...

Nelson scores. Kenny counters. Hershey gets a layup. Hector throws one down. It's 51-39 with 12:31 left. Hulett scores...he has 13. Woods hits, and GW has widened this gap. Kenny scores. Richardson throws it down. He could tell Cam Newton he could throw it down. 55-41. Grayson scores, gets fouled, but misses the free throw. Hector hits a three, then commits a foul. Mark Deed hits a three. Hulett scores...62-43 with 8:19 left. Will Jack return? Grayson fouls Crouse, who hits.

Hershey scores...he has 14. Then he gets a steal and Nelson gets a dunk. Woods gets a steal, and Armbruster gets fouled. He goes 1-2. King is back, and he gets a board. Jack comes back with an 18-9-7 line. Jack immediately finds Hulett. And then, Jack fouls out, with GW up 64-50.

What an injustice. Three of those fouls were ticky-tack. Alabama cuts it to 70-63 with a minute left, but gets no closer. The final is 72-63. Jack only gets to the line once for two shots, and fouls out. And all of those were quick in the second half. Turns out that one of the refs was a former Alabama booster, and couldn't stand Jack dominating things. King getting time was a surprise.

First Round

West: Only two surprises, as #12 Arizona beat #5 Clemson, 73-72, on Stephen Irvine's three with :33 left, and Kelly Coulter's miss just off the rim. GW beat Arizona State handidly during the regular season. #10 Long Beach State upset #7 Michigan State, 69-57.

Midwest: #14 San Jose State bagged the biggest upset, upsetting TCU, 65-63. There will be controversy forever surrounding this game. Ahmed Robson took a shot at the buzzer, and was fouled by Peter Harris. The controversy was not on the foul, but on whether Robson was behind the three-point line. The television feed was inconclusive, and the referees declared the tip of his right shoe on the line. He pleaded, the coaches pleaded, and there were rumors of another angle caught by Illinois' camera team, which showed him as decidedly behind the line.

Their second-round opponent also won on a heart-stopper, though there was no denying this one. With Illinois leading Hardin-Simmons, 90-89 and three seconds left, George Guillen stepped to the line for two. He hit the first, but missed the second. After a timeout, Sanford Stevens inbounded to Milo Thomas. Thomas took one dribble, got across half court, and let fly.

Bang.

Hardin-Simmons 92, Illinois 91.

March is lovely.

South: Morehead State upset Wake Forest, 77-67, and will face George Washington in the second round. New Mexico beat sixth-seeded Texas Tech, 84-72. They will get third-seed Princeton in the second round.

East: Loyola-Illinois ripped fifth seed Virginia, 96-73, behind 21 points and 14 rebounds by power forward Chris Saville. North Carolina, the #11 seed, beat #6 Texas A&M, 76-67.

1985 NCAA Tournament, Round Two: vs Morehead State (22-12)

The Eagles look a lot like the Crimson Tide. They do play defense relatively well, but they aren't too adept at scoring. They do have a veteran team that includes three four-year players, including four-year starter, C John Lo. The seven-footer averaged 10.0 points and 6.4 rebounds this year. Erasmo Schiller scored a team-high 13.6 points a game. They aren't too adept at moving the ball, so GW's defense should be able to trap them well enough.

Jack opens the games with a score inside. Kenny hits a three off a Jack pass, who then grabs a block, comes down and scores. Jack finds Armbruster...it's 9-0 four minutes in. Lo finally scores from inside. Jack gets a tip-in of a Hulett miss. Armbruster then tips in another hulett miss. It's 13-2 with fourteen minutes left.

John Cruz hits two freebies. Schiller scores from the top of the key. Hulett gets a steal, and hits a layup. Lo scores, making it 15-8.

Woods gets a steal, and Armbruster gets a three. Jac gets his first foul, and Ali follows with his first. Hulett gets two free throws...it's 27-11, GW. Andy Cawthon breaks the Eagles' monotony with a three, but Woods gets two free throws, making it 29-14. Hulett got hurt, and comes out. Hector scores off a Jack pass, and gets the foul. Terrence Delong scores, but Hector goes 1-2 from the line. Jack scores; he has 8-6-4...Kenny gets a steal, and he scores. It's 36-16 with 2:45 left.

Armbruster fouls Lo, who hits both. Jack tips in Grayson's missed dunk, but Delong responds. Jack responds to that. He has a 12-9-4 line. Kenny goes to the line, and hits both. There's 1:09 left...it's 42-20, and the JVs are closing out the half. Lo scores, making it 42-22 at the half. Morehead State has 11 turnovers, compared to two for GW. Lo has nine for Morehead State.

Jack finds Hector to open the second half. Kenny gets a steal and a layup. Cawthon scores...Hector finds Jack for the bucket. He's got a 14-10-5 line. Schiller scores...he has but four points. Woods scores off a Jack pass. Delong scores. Anderson Peart scores and gets fouled by Ali. Hector hits a three off a Jack pass, and Peart responds. Hector hits another three. No sign of Hulett. Jack scores from inside. It's 58-35 with 14:00 left, as Hector gets a breakaway dunk.

Hector then fouls Brian Walston on a three. Donnell Carpenter scores, and Ali responds. Carpenter then hits a three. Woods gets a pair of free throws. It's 67-47. Jack scores off a Hector pass. Schiller gets one of two. Ferdinand Boutwell htis a three...Cawthon scores, but Jack counters that. Schiller gets a layup. Jack gets a steal...and Woods gets to the line. He misses, of course. Kenny hits a three; he has 12, and Jack has nine assists. Kenny gets a steal, and Jack scores from the baseline. He has a 22-14-9 line, and it's 79-54.

Schiller scores; he has nine. Jack scores, gets fouled, and hits the freebie...then comes out with the score 82-56. The JVs close things out. The final is 83-62.

1985 NCAA Tournament, Sweet Sixteen: vs Princeton (23-7)

A rematch of last year's NCAA Championship game comes early. You can see the recap of the rematch here: Out Of Nowhere: A FBCB Story - Page 13 .

Hulett will be at full strength, as his sprained ankle will only take a day to repair. The Tigers had to reload after last year's run to the title tilt, but did have a couple key cogs to revolve around. Kermit Lee is one of the most dominant rim defenders in the nation (4.8 bpg) and rebounders (10.1 rpg). Travis Cruz (14.2) leads the offense for the second straight season, and is tenth on Princeton's all-time scoring list. This is a young team, by Princeton's standards...only five true veterans on this year's team. Gerald Alarcon, the sixth man on this team, may be at subpar strength, due to an injury.

As far as the team goes, they play great offense, though they do it through rebounding. They don't shoot particularly great. They are not a particularly great defensive team, but they take care of the ball, for the most part. They do allow many rebounds...unlike last year, GW is the unabashed favorite.

Sweet Sixteen - Thursday's Games

Midwest: #4 Maryland upset #1 Missouri, 96-86. They will face #7 Nebraska, who smashed the glass slipper of San Jose State, 63-49.

East: Another #4 over a #1. This time, UTEP destroyed Southern Cal, 99-83. In a battle of top shooting guard, Michael Grossman's 26 points and eight assists outdid Tod Whitlock's 33 points. They'll get #3 Florida, who march on Cal, 61-46.

Cruz fouls Huett, who hits both, to open the game. Jack scores on his first attempt, off a Hulett pass. Cruz scores for Princeton. Armbruster fouls Lee, who misses both free throws. Kenny blocks Benton Gober's three, but scores on the next possession. Cruz picks up his second foul, and exits. Kenny scores. Dennis Davis blocks Jack. LaBelle gets fouled by Woods, who hits both. Lee blocks Armbruster...it's 8-6 with 14:00 to go.

Jakc gets fouled by Davis, and the bucket, and the free throw. 11-6. He's got an early 5-3-0 line. Lee hits two free throws. Jack beats the press, throws it down, gets fouled by Alarcon, and hits the free throw. 14-10 with 11:43 left. Alarcon scores. Woods scores off a Jack pass. Woods dunks off a Jack miss, but Gober counters with a three. It's 18-15. Lee gets his first foul, and Hetor finds Hulett. Joe Mattox gets a dunk, but Jack drills a three. Then a steal, but he misses. It's 23-17...Hulett gets a steal and a layup, and GW has their biggest lead with 9:26 left.

Jack gets fouled by Lee, which is big. He hits both free throws, and it's 27-17, and Lee and Cruz are both out of the game. GW needs to make a move here. Denny Perez scores...Jamaal Eckert gets fouled by Perez, scores, and gets the three-point play. Jack's in at center. Woods gets two free throws, then Hulett hits a three. He has 9, Jack has a 13-4-1 line, and it's 34-20 with 6:38 left.

Armbruster is back with two fouls, as is Cruz and Lee. Gober hits a three, cutting it to 34-23. Jack hits a layup off a Kenny pass off a broken press. Porter Ali comes in and hits a free throw. Jack gets his first foul. Ali takes his patented three, and misses. Michael Danley scores. Lee blocks Jack on a dunk...no fear in him. Either, really. Cruz charges into Woods, and has three fouls. That's HUGE.

Hulett scores, making it 39-25. Jack is out, Hector in. Mattox scores, gets a steal and a dunk. 39-29. Hulett scores...he's up to 13. Lee scores off an Alarcon pass. Kenny gets to the line, and hits both. He has six. Then he fouls, and Eckert hits both. 43-33 with a minute left. Gober fouls Jack, who hits both. Danley gets a layup. Kenny gets to the line, and he misses the second...Woods fouls Eckert. He hits both. Jack finds Hector with four seconds left, and the half ends with GW leading wire-to-wire. It's 48-37. Jack had 17-5-2, while Hulett had 13. Gober scored 13 for Princeton. Cruz has two points.

Gober is fouled on a three to start...he hits all three. Jack finds Armbruster. Cruz is blocked by Woods, and Jack scores on the other end. It's 52-40. Davis has three fouls along with Cruz. Jack is sustaining possessions with offensive boards...GW holds a 28-18 advantage there. Jack gets a block, and Lee blocks Jack on TWO dunk attempts on the same possession.

Lee then blocks Hulett on a dunk. He's incredibly important. But Jack has also brought his block game. LaBelle gets a steal and Davis a dunk. With 14:54 left, it's 52-42, and Woods is hurt. Perez takes his place.

Hulett gets a three, and Jack two steals and two dunks. It's 59-42. Gober hits a three. Jack finds Kenny...Kenny has nine, and now three fouls (he is tired)...and now four fouls, as Hetor comes in. Gober gets one of two. Hector scores off a Hulett pass. Jack with a steal, and he finds Hulett. It's 65-46. Jack with ANOTHER steal. He has 23-8-6 and at least five steals. Jack scores...Mattox counters. Jack finds Hulett, who now has 20. It's 69-48, and this got away from Princeton quickly. David Echevarria is in, which is usually game over, because he's a JV. Right now, he's in because of Woods' injury.

LaBelle scores. It's 69-51. Eight minutes left. Mattox scores again, and GW calls time...and rightfully so. Jack finds Hector out of the timeout. Ali is at the two. Echevarria scores off a Jack pass, and Hector gets a steal and a layup. It's 75-53, and there goes any doubt. Ali gets a steal, and Perez scores. Jack fouls...he has 25-10-9 and has earned all of it. Gober gets one of two from the line. Tanner Livesay comes in, fouls, and then gets T'd up. Jack hits both. Danley hits a three. Princeton is shooting just 37% here. GW, 46%. Cruz is in, and he gets a steal. His foul trouble was the key...he gets a lot of steals, and losing him killed Princeton. He only has two points. The JVs are in with the score 79-58, and this is over.

The final is 83-69. It wasn't that close. GW out-rebounded Princeton, 45-35, and had ten steals, to just five for Princeton. Just shot just 9-25 for the game, but he had 11 boards, five offensive, nine assists, five steals, and a block.

Elsewhere, Rice and Kansas State play to chalk in the West. The top-seeded Owls crushed #12 seed Arizona State, 72-59, while the Wildcats outlasted Columbia, 69-61.

In the East, Duke held up their end of the bargain, beating #4-seed Kansas, 83-65. That sets up Duke-GW, The Redux.


Regional Championships
West: 1) Rice (32-2) vs 2) Kansas State (27-7)
Midwest: 4) Maryland (23-9) vs 7) Nebraska (23-10)
South: 1) Duke (32-2) vs 2) George Washington (31-1)
East: 3) Florida (32-2) vs 4) UTEP (26-7)

Injury Notes: Woods' injury is not severe, and he'll be good for Duke. Duke will be without starting 7'2 C Keenan Valenzuela. He was hurt in the win over Kansas, and will miss the rest of the season. The sophomore, a starter since he walked onto campus, averaged 6.7 points and 8.5 rebounds, along with 3.8 blocks a game. That's a big loss for Duke. Two other reserves, C Clement Belton, and guard Thomas Burns, are banged up, but should play. Duke has very little post depth, with only three servicable players available now. Nobody is taller than 6'8, and redshirt freshman David Ware is now slated to start against GW.

UTEP has played this entire tournament without their two of their top three scorers, guard Dylan Hough, and C Ezra Jimenez. Michael Grossman leads the team with 17.4 points, but Hough averaged 17.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 3.9 assists, along with over a steal a game. Jimenez scored 15.1 and collected 5.3 rebounds.

Maryland continues to dedicate their season to Tommy Resnick. A neighbor and former rival of Jack--Resnick is from Duncannon, PA, and attended Susquenita High School--he was finally named a starter in his senior year, and averaged 8.9 points and 8.9 rebounds, along with 3.3 blocks, before going down with an ACL tear. He is considered a target to go pro overseas.

All other teams are healthy going into the regional finals.

1985 NCAA Tournament - South Regional Final vs Duke (32-2)

The Blue Devils got off to a slow start without Valenzuela, and actually trailed at the break, 42-38. Then the threes got going, and the Blue Devils rolled to an 83-65 game. But they got next-to-nothing from their post, Carlton Sandberg and David Ware (who averaged 9.7 minutes a game this year, and played 29 in this one): 4 points on 2-9 shooting, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal.

So, Duke is going to have to rely on their deep and talented backcourt, led by the venerable Dean Davis, and Joseph Tu, if they are going to get a win. Davis hit for 23 with 6 assists, and Tu 15 points and 10 rebounds, to pace the multi-faceted guard attack. Orville Ayer added 17.

This game will have the feel of the airplanes going after King Kong.

In the first game against GW, Valenzuela went for ten points, Sandberg eight. Ayer led the way with 16. Tu and Davis were in foul trouble...but the rest of the roster picked up the slack. Everyone who played for Duke scored. Twelve players all registered points. GW was led, of course, by Jack's 25-13-11, and by Hulett's 25. Nobody else had more than five.

Surely, things are going to have to change if GW wants to pull this out. Yes, Jack and Hulett will have to lead the way. But someone, whether it be Hector, Kenny, or Armbruster will have to lead the way. They better not expect Tu or Davis to get into foul trouble again. And this team has to close Duke out. They usually peak from the final seven or eight minutes of the first half, and into the first ten minutes of the second. Then, they usually hold on.

Tonight, it's eye of the tiger.

Or be put to sleep.

But first...

Midwest Final: 4) Maryland 89, 7) Nebraska 64. Joshua Berry scored 26, and C Grant Crites added 22 and ten rebounds, as Maryland (24-9) raced out to a 53-36 advantage, and never wavered against the Cornhuskers (23-11). Tony Parker scored 12 off the bench for the Huskers, who last reached the Final Four in 1979-80. Maryland reached the national semifinal for the first time since 1977-78, when they fell in their third NCAA championship in four years. This is their 15th Final Four, amazingly. They have reached seven title tilts, winning two ('53, '62).

East Final: 3) Florida 77, 4) UTEP 69. The Gators (33-2) used five scorers in double figures, led by star forward Bruno Bui's 19, to reach the Final Four for the first time in school history. Garth Augustus scored 23 to lead UTEP on an honorable charge of the SEC champions. The Miners had a severely depleted roster, due to injuries. Michael Grossman, who was red hot in the NCAA Tournament up to this point, scored 16, but on 4-19 shooting (4-15 from three).

Ware blocks Hulett to start. Hulett fouls Davis, and Ware scores. Uh oh. Woods gets fouled by Ware, and scores, and gets the free throw. Davis hits a three...and Ware fouls Woods against. Immediately, Tu has to go to the 4. Sandberg gets a tip in, and then scores again. It's 9-3. Hulett gets a layup. It's 9-5 with 16:43 left.

Woods gets a steal, and Tu gets a foul. Then a steal. Armbruster fouls Belton, who misses both free throws. Jack's first shot is blocked. Ayer finds Tu. Tu gets his second foul. Ayer picks Hulett, and Sandberg scores. It's 13-5. Jack gets his first points on a big dunk. Hulett scores, making it 13-9. Ayer misses a three...Jack gets blocked by Francis Neighbors. Neighbors steals Woods and gets a layup. It's 15-9 with 11:29 left.

Jack finds Hulett for a bucket. Kenny gets a steal...Neighbors gets another steal and a layup. Davis gets a steal, and hits a three. It's 20-11. Woods scores. He has five. Jack has a 2-2-1 line. Not a great start. Sandberg goes one of two. Hector gets fouled shooting a three. He hits all three. Jack gets a steal, and Neighbors is called for a foul. Jack scores, and suddenly, it's 21-18. Duke turns it over again, but GW can't do anything.

Neighbors is having a solid game right now. Chris Johnson is in...and Ali ties it with a three. The crowd is going nuts. Boutwell is in. Uh oh. The JVs are in. He gets a steal! They played to a stalemate, and Jack scores as he comes back. Hulett gets a steal and a dunk. Tu scores as he comes back. Davis finds Ayer, and we're tied again, at 25-25.

Hulett gets his second foul. Under six minutes. Jack has a 6-3-2 line...it's 28-25 as Kenny hits a three. Jack gets a rare three-in-the-key call. And his first foul. Hulett hits a three off a Jack pass. Then Jack gets a steal, and he scores. It's 33-25, GW!

Ware hits two free throws...Perez is back, as Armbruster is in foul trouble. Grayson gets a board, and Perez shoots and misses. Jack with a steal, but GW can't convert. 33-27 with a minute left. Sandberg gets an illegal screen. Jack is out...Perez is fouled, and he hits both. 35-27. Hector fouls...Davis hits both free throws. Kenny scores off a pass from Woods at the buzzer!

GW leads, 37-29. Davis had 10 for Duke, who shot 42%. GW shot 44%. Duke had twelve turnovers, eight of which came on GW steals. Duke held a 20-16 rebounding edge.

Jack had just an 8-6-3 line. Hulett had 11. Sandberg scores to open things up. He scores again...he has 11. Kenny scores. Davis scores on a Tu pass. Ayer gets a steal, and a layup. It's 39-37, and GW calls time. Duke is pressing the issue here. Woods gets a travel call. Kenny with a steal, but he misses a three. GW holding to a two-point lead here with three minutes gone.

Davis hits a three. Jack misses, and Ayer hits another three. It's 43-39, and GW calls another timeout. Jack finally scores, cutting it back to two. Tu scores. Kenny with a steal...but they can't do anything right at the moment. Duke is dominant. Sandberg scores again. Jack finds Armbruster. Neighbors scores. Woods scores off a Jack pass. Jack has a 10-8-5 line. It's 49-48 after Hector hits a three off a Hulett pass. Tu gets in a tip, and it's 51-48 with 12:44 to go.

Davis gets a steal, but Duke can't convert. Ware gets his third foul, and Armbruster goes one of two. Neighbors scores. 53-49. Sandberg scores again; he has 15. Ware gets his fourth. Jack scores inside, as GW looks to attack. Armbruster fouls Sandberg, who hits both. Kenny scores off a Jack pass. 57-53, Duke. Jack with a steal, and Grayson scores. Down to two.

Davis with a steal...Woods fouls Belton. He's the guy to foul. He misses both, but Armbruster turns it over. 4:35 left. Tu with a steal, Duke with a 71-63 lead after his dunk. Hector follows. No Jack still.

GW has a costly shot-clock violation. Kenny with a steal, and Jack charges into Ware, who has four fouls. Wow. Guts. Hector gets a dunk...it's down to four. Jack gets his fourth foul. Tu hits both free throws. Davis gets a BIG steal, and a layup. Jack hits a three. And Jack fouls out. He's gone, and soon, his collegiate career is likely over.

Armbruster gets the rebound on the missed free throw, but GW cannot convert. It's 77-70. Ali hits a three. Down to four. Hector fouls Ayer. He hits both.

Hulett hits a three. Down to three. And Davis turns it over! But Woods misses. Hector with a steal! Armbruster HITS THE THREE! TIE GAME! TIME GAME!

ARMBRUSTER WITH A STEAL, but Tu gets the block! It gets taken out to Armbruster, who fakes, and gets it to Ali...

Once or twice. When this is done, before he goes pro, I'm going to tally up his game-by-game stats in a Google doc. He fouled out of necessity, but in reality, he was the one guy who shouldn't have been fouling.

"He's done it so many times for us," said Hulett after the game, referring to Jack. "We knew we had to try to win the game, obviously. But it feels really good to get one for him."

"You know us Alis," said Porter Ali, King of Washington DC, after the game. "We like the rope-a-dope. Let them keep going until they think they've got the win...and then, boom! Drop them at the end. Yeah, that's the Alis for you."

Muhammad Ali is not a relative of Porter Ali. Just wanted to clear that out. He doesn't even know Ali's real name.

Tonight, it doesn't matter.

1985 NCAA Tournament, Final Four - vs #1 Rice (33-2)

This is a rematch of last year's Final Four, won 91-79 by George Washington. The unsung hero of that game, Dwight Davis and his 27 points, is gone. But Jack (14 points, 17 rebounds, 11 assists) and Hulett (19 points). The Owls were a young-ish team; four of their starters were first-year starters. Now, four starters are back, three of which are seniors. Their sixth-man is a senior. Those four have played in at least 92 games, three in triple-digits. Three others have 70 games under their belt. This is a veteran squad.

And they've wanted this game all along.

Center Kim Reynolds leads the offensive show, scoring 16.6 points and getting 7.8 rebounds a game. He also averages 4.0 blocks. Guard Freddie Thompson scores 16.0 a game. Joshua Shriver, who scores 13.2 points and nabs 6.0 rebounds, is a bit banged up, but he should play. This team also has Ellsworth Julius, who started ten games, and is on the all-name team. They also have Maximo Joseph, and Family Guy spoof Stephen Quattlebaum. Andy Dalton is redshirting.

The smart money is on Rice, but after GW's last win...nobody can count this GW team out. Nobody. Many feel this is the actual national championship game, and carries with it all the pomp and circumstance as such. Even that new newspaper, USA Today, ran a multi-page cover story on the game, and, of course, on Jack.

One worry, though...the cover of Sports Illustrated was Ali's shot. Hmmm.

Maus tips it to a streaking Reynolds who dunks it on the first possession. Jack calmly responds with a three...then gets blocked on a dunk by Maus. Reynolds fouls, and Jack scores. Freddie Thompson hits a three. It's 5-5 early on. Jack finds Hulett in the corner. Maus is fouled by Armbruster, who gets one of two. Armbruster commits his second foul with 14:34 left.

Jack gets a steal, and scores. He has seven, and it's 9-6. He gets another steal, and throws it down. Hulett fouls Michael Drake, who scores...misses the free throw, but Mike Mitchell scores. Woods gets a steal and a dunk to make it 13-10, GW. Jack finds Hulett. Mitchell scores. Hector scores for GW. It's 17-12. Woods fouls Reynolds, who hits both...17-14 with 11:45 to go.

Reynolds dunks it home...Woods counters from the wing. Jack slides to the center spot; Kenny hits two free throws. Jack commits his first foul. Hulett commits his second. Shriver hits both, and Jack responds witha three. He has 12. Gilbert Kaufman scores for Rice. Shriver scores, making it 24-22. Ali hits a three off a Jack pass. Drake responds. Jack hits from the top of the key. Then he commits his second foul, with 6:55 left, and comes out. GW is up 29-26.

Michael King is in. He gets an assist. Maus scores. Freddie Thompson misses a shot to tie it. Then he misses another. GW is cold with Jack out...Maus makes it 31-30. He has five. Finally, Thompson gives Rice a 33-31 lead. Armbruster gets fouled by Maus, and he goes one of two. Jack is back. He has a 14-5-3 line.

Hulett finds Armbruster, and Rice calls time. 34-33, GW. Ellsworth Julius is in. What a name. Armbruster gets fouled by Maus; his second. 35-33. Thompson hits a three, and Maus gets a steal and a dunk. 38-35, and Rice has their biggest lead. GW has nine turnovers, and Rice has just two steals. Mitchell scores; Woods counters. Jack finds Hulett, who then fouls Drake. He misses both. Jack scores with a minute to go. Drake finds Maus. That's how the half ends, with Rice up, 42-41. Jack has a 16-7-4 line, but those two fouls loom large. GW's ten turnovers are problematic. Rice had eight. Both teams shot very well: GW 61%, Rice 57%. Expect some regression, I think.

Maus and Thompson had nine. Maus misses a three to open it up. Jack turns it over, and Shriver turns it back. Maus fouls Jack, who hits both at the line. Maus has three. Drake finds Thompson. GW gets a shot clock violation, but Rice turns it over. Kenny hits a three...46-44, GW. Maus ties it right back, off a Drake pass. He has five assists.

Maus scores off a Drake pass. It's 48-46. Jack ties it up; he has 20-9-4 right now. Hulett hits a three off a Jack pass. Jack drills a three, and it's 54-48, GW. Shriver turns it over. Maus commits his fourth foul. Jack is owning this game at the moment. He's controlling the boards, and the GW offense. Jack can't hit though...but he gets people to foul. With ten minutes left, Maximo Joseph makes it 54-50.

Jack gets fouled, and hits both. Hulett fouls Julius, and here's Hector, as Jack sits, too. Ali is in. Bryan Sabetto-Davis hits a three. 56-53, GW. Ali misses a three. Sabetto-Davis hits again...it's down to one, and Jack comes back after Ali travels. Jack finds Ali; this team is night-and-day in this game with and without Jack. It's 58-56, Rice can tie...and they do on a Shriver hoop. Hector throws it away, but Jack gets a steal and a dunk. He has 27-14-6. Hector fouls Mitchell, who scores. Rice leads 61-60 with 5:48 left.

Julius scores; 63-60. Hector ties it off a Jack pass. Armbruster and Hulett are back with four fouls. So is Maus. Thompson gives Rice a 65-63 lead, with 2:51 to go. Hulett hits a three off a Jack pass. He has 12, and now he fouls out. Armbruster with a steal...he finds Jack, who can't hit. 1:06 to go. Rice gets called for a shot clock, and Hector gets fouled...but he misses. :22 left, Rice ball. In the confusion of the one-and-one, Jack got pulled from the floor for Ali.


They work it around, Mitchell finds Shriver. Shriver drives right, gets free, shoots...


....and gets blocked by Ali!


Maus gets it, but the buzzer sounds!


Unbelievable. A rookie coaching mistake led to the biggest player on the planet exiting the game, and Porter Ali saves George Washington AGAIN. How...I....wow.

The legend of Porter Ali grows by the minute. Meanwhile, Jack rose to the occasion. You could completely see a different team when he was on the floor, than the one that played when he was off it. Charlie Radcliff on why Jack was taken off the court on the game's final play.

"He had a rather nasty cut, and the ref forced him off the floor to be tended to."

I need to note...this Rice team would have several solid NBA players on it...specifically Maus and Thompson, though Shriver, Jospeh and Drake all had extended stays in the league.

A Look at Maryland

The Maryland Terrapins are 24-9. Almost all of their losses are good ones: against TCU, at Clemson, to Wake twice, twice against Duke, at Virginia...all of those teams are ranked. Losses to 15-15 Georgia, and 13-17 Maryland-Eastern Shore, a satellite campus for Maryland, are inexplicable. But here they are, hot after falling to Wake in the ACC Tournament.

So, what do the Terrapins do well? They score. Eleventh in the nation, third in field goal percentage, 11th in free throw percentage, and 12th in three-point percentage. They are fourht in points per shot. That is incredibly impressive, especially in the ACC. They are eleventh in defensive rebounding, third in assists, and sixteenth in blocks. On defense, they are 36th in the nation, 27th in offensive rebounds against, seventh in defensive rebounds against, fourth in overall rebounds against...and thirteen in PPS.

This will be a tall order.

But, of course, GW just went through the #2 and #1-ranked teams all season long.

The Terrains go through their forwards. Power forward Grant Crites averages 18.6 points and 8.6 rebounds a game. The senior is a likely All-American, and ranked sixth among all draftable prospects this year. Small forward Josh Berry averages 17.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.4 steals per game. This presents an interesting problem, especially if both attack Armbruster first. Both he and Woods are prone to fouling early, and if they do, things fall on Grayson and Jack. Whereas most teams attack from the backcourt, Maryland presents a far different issue.

This could be decided advantage, Maryland.

Of course, Maryland has very little depth, as starter center, and schoolboy rival for Jack, Tommy Resnick, is out with an injury. And the bench offerings are slim for Maryland.

Starting off-guard Eddie Rakes (a marvelous fifties name; just a great eighties name) is out with an injury, which also puts some pressure on Maryland. They do have three players who average ten minutes a game off the bench. But this poses a lot of issue for Maryland, especially if GW gets them fouling, like they can do.

Here are their stats:

George Washington goes back-to-back! Jack Dawkins had a game for the ages! This was one of the best championship games of all-time, and Jack's performance, especially when he put the team on his shoulders during the second half, and then, the game-winning free throws, to get to forty points (I believe the first to score forty in a final)...and GW goes for the most incredible back-to-back.


The Impossible Team. Led by the Unlikely Hero.

The 1984-85 National Champion George Washington Colonials


PG Michael King: He played in 22 games, playing just 2.1 minutes a game. That was a massive shift from a year ago. He did get some key moments in, and played well when he was called upon. His role did increase from a year ago, and he should be the sixth man next season.

PF David Echevarria: Basically in the same boat as King, thought that was expected of the redshirt freshman walk-on. He really isn't very good. He did manage seven points and sixteen rebounds this year, along with six blocks, in just fifty minutes. Overall, not awful. It's pretty easy to be not awful when there are no expectations.

SG Ferdinand Boutwell: The former Fairfield Stag saw action in 31 games, taking over garbage time duties from Chris Davis. He was, oddly enough, a negatively-efficient player this year. How does that happen on a one-loss national champion? He saw time in places where he had no right, getting play over a Michael King/Hector Patterson backcourt, which is also strange. The new coach saw something in Boutwell nobody else ever has, I guess.

C Denny Perez: The true freshman played in all thirty-five games, though he was not particularly useful in that time. He did collect some key rebounds at times (1.8 rpg) and averaged nearly two points in his eight minutes a game. The team will be counting on him next year, when he'll likely take over one of the starting post spots.

C Glenn Grayson: The redshirt sophomore upped his playing time to 10.5 minutes per game, scoring 3.2 points and grabbing 1.5 rebounds a game. He was a vital piece off the bench, a role he'll likely reprise next season, due to his size (6'8) compared to the 6'11 Perez.

PG Hector Patterson: The 5'9 junior was the most consistent guy off the bench for the Colonials, coming up big time and time again when he was most needed. He also had the best chemistry with Jack, it seemed. When the Colonials had decisive runs, especially in the second half, it seemed to always be comprised of Jack and Hector. For someone who has only started eleven games in his career, he has been quite an effective scorer. He has 724 points for his career, and has averaged at least 8.3 points in two of his seasons, despite never playing more than 21 minutes, on average.

SG Kenny Frazier: The true freshman couldn't replace Dwight Davis, but he got better as the season went on. And he shot reasonably well for a freshman, going 47% from the field, 33% from three. That should go up as he goes along, and he should be quite a competent player for the Colonials in his career. He probably won't be as good as Hulett, but he should be decent.

PF Brian Armbruster: Amazingly, Ambruster cut down on his fouls this year, from 3.2 to 3.0 a game. His free throw percentage, though, took a MAJOR dip, from 54% to 38%. That's atrocious. He seemed to never really get on track, and tried to shoot his way out of slumps. That didn't really work. He never built on the promise of his 17-point, 17-rebound performance in the season opener against Ohio State. He does have a world of promise, though, and should be the centerpiece of the program for the next two years. Of course, following Jack's act could easily cause a player to crumble. It will be interesting to see what he does.

PF Bruce Woods: Now a three-year starter and two-time champion, his numbers jumped from a year ago. He averaged career highs in points (7.4 ppg) and rebounds (6.1 rpg), and played mostly efficient basketball. He did shoot only 46% from the field, but he's not a focal point on offense. His numbers were higher until Hulett began to assert himself more on the offensive end. He is reliable and will be a dependable starter next year. The Twin Towers will reign one more time.

SG Chris Davis: He didn't suit up this year, and was okay with that. For his career, he played 87 minutes over 37 games, scored 29 points, and won two national championships. And he got to play with the greatest college player ever. How can this man complain on this end?

SG Porter Ali: He was infurating at times, and good for two things: a three attempt, usually immediately upon entering, and probably a turnover. And a dunk. He took far more shots this year than in any other, shooting 120 times. But he shot 51% from the field, 73% from the line, and 38% from three. The FG and 3 numbers were career-bests. Of course, all of the bad was washed away by two plays: his buzzer-beating three to beat Duke in the East regional final, and his block against Rice to secure the national semifinal for the Colonials. He will forever be Duke of DC for his contributions. Every story needs the unsung hero, and Ali played the role in GW's tale.

SG Richie Hulett: Tempermental, selfish, streaky. You could use these words to describe Hulett's presence on a basketball court. Fiery, self-assured, and game-changer. You can also use those. Really, it depends on if he's scoring. He had several technical fouls this year, fouled out of a few games, and ticked off a lot of people...including his own teammates. But, in the end, he found his role: when Jack was receiving too much attention on defense, he was to attack. If he was hitting, it opened up the offense. If he wasn't, he was to shoot his way out of it. He did shoot 49% from the field this year, and averaged a career-high 14.7 points. He also scored 1,333 points for his career, including 516 this year. The 1,333 tie him for tenth all-time, just behind long-time backcourt mate, Dwight Davis. And he did finish eighth in school history in assists, with 263; fifteenth in steals (109), and among the school leaders in several other categories. He ends his career as, most likely, one of the top ten or fifteen players in school history. He might play overseas, but will most likely get into coaching.

The Collegiate Career of Jack Dawkins

It is finally time to put a bow on Jack's collegiate career. He was named National Player of the Year for the fourth straight year. Southern Cal PG Richie Russell was a repeat pick for First Team All-American.

Code:

His pro prospects are the same as when he first walked onto campus. He's atop the list. This is also so we can compare this list to what happens at the next level.

Jack's career is easily summed up: he's the best ever. The amount of records that go with him is absurd.


Career Records
Points: 3487 (1st; second has 2815)
Offensive Rebounds: 536 (1st; second has 491)
Rebounds: 1576 (1st; 2nd has 1303, and that was back in 1954)
Assists: 996 (2nd; 1st had 1022)
Steals: 334 (3rd; 1st had 403)
Blocks: 364 (36th; 1st had 587)
Field Goals: 1199 (1st; 2nd had 1059)
Free Throws: 872 (1st; 2nd had 738)


He was the game's most consistent player, ranking at the top of seasonal scoring, rebounding and assists charts. He had off games, sure, but he came through when needed. He had that knack.


And now, with two NCAA championships and a career record of 125-10, Jack will move onto the pros, where the bane of all existence awaits.


Hollywood couldn't have written a better, more selfish script.

I cannot get this to format correctly here...but I went and got a game-by-game line of Jack's career. You can view that here if you want:

Meanwhile, in the world of professionals...


NBA To Implement Lottery For Draft
New system comes after speculation of purposed losing
Joe Simpson, New York Times


In the National Basketball Association, as with all other professional sports, there is an ebb and flow to team success. As teams find players who become stars, their win totals go up. As those players regress in their abilities, or get shuttled to another team or retire, their win totals go down. This is the cost of doing business.


But when a team possibly rigs their season for long-term success, owners are taken aback, and claim that the integrity of the game is taken back a generation.


With whispers of that very sabotage going around the NBA, the league has taken measures to prevent such forced losing.


They have instituted a lottery for the draft.


The claims come at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers, who won a mere seventeen games last season. Those seventeen wins are the fewest ever for an established franchise. Boston won 19 five years ago, which is when these rumblings began.


However, with this year's prize being once-in-a-lifetime prospect Jack Dawkins of George Washington, there have been more talks about teams trying to lose to make their team better in the long run.


"It's no secret that certain franchises think that, because they cannot compete, they can hoodwink the fans into shenanigans about 'next year'," said NBA Commissioner Connie McCormick. "Now, even if you go into the tank, there's no guarantee you'll come out swimming."


The lottery will involve any team who does not make the playoffs, and give teams a proportional shot towards winning the first overall pick. The worse a team does, the better their odds. But there is still no guarantee that the team with the worst record will end up with the first pick.


That adds serious intrigue into a draft that has lacked drama over the years. It is especially so this year, with the entrance of Dawkins (simply known as "Jack" to many around the country). He is not alone in the elite class of this draft, but he is considered the most polished player, with the greatest array of skills, to enter the league in its history.


The Lakers (17-65) have the inside track towards receiving that prized pick, while Houston (21-61) is second. Detroit (28-54), Chicago (29-53), and San Diego (33-49) round out the bott...er, top five.


It does raise a curious eye why a league that needs exposure and a star in a top city, such as Los Angeles, would force the market to hope for a player like Jack, who could transcend the game and make it more mainstream. The league has struggled over the past few years, with Utah, Denver and Atlanta owning the stage. The Lakers reached the NBA Finals in 1981, falling to Atlanta in five games.

Congrats on 2nd title! Pretty amazing career for Jack.

Will you continue reporting on Jack in NBA? George Washington post-Jack?

Chicago Bulls Win Lottery, #1 Pick
Lakers cry foul over losing Jack Dawkins
by Joe Simpson, New York Daily News

The Chicago Bulls got their biggest break since their only break.

And the Los Angeles Lakers are fuming over it.

The Bulls, who registered the third-worst record last season, won the first-overall pick in the NBA's first-ever draft lottery. They won the rights, presumably, to Jack Dawkins, the George Washington star who enters the draft with more prestige than any player in history.

"It is amazing," said Bulls GM Colin Aiello. "We have an opportunity to better our team. I don't think it's any secret who we are going to take, but we will do our due diligence. The draft is very, very deep."

The Lakers, who finished with the worst record any established franchise has ever had at 17-64, fell to fourth overall, behind Chicago rivals, Milwaukee and Detroit.

"Obviously, this is a (very flawed system)," said Laker GM Marvin Paker, who was rather frustrated at the proceedings. "Why would you put forth a system that has not been tested?"

"We tested our new system to every variable," said NBA Commissioner, Connie McCormick. "We made sure we had a system that was fair to all."

The Lakers, who have won only one world championship, in 1965, are four years removed from a NBA Finals appearance. They had missed the playoffs the past two years, and sunk to depths never seen in the NBA. They have long had Jack on their radar, and planned to get them.

The Bulls and, more accurately, the NBA, got in the way.

The league wants to discourage behavior, as they say, "unbecoming of any team with integrity", where a team loses on purpose to helps their cause for the future.

"Dropping on purpose should not be a rewarded behavior," said McCormick. "The fans are put out, the league is put out, and the game of basketball is done a great disservice. The administration of Los Angeles has not shied away from this assertion. They know what is at stake. And now, they have seen their plan foiled.

"Of course, lost in all of this is great progress. Not only did their action necessitate a reaction, we have found a way for teams, and fans of those teams, currently on a downswing to have hope.

"It worked for Chicago. It can work for any team."

Dawkins averaged 25.0 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 7.8 assists for the two-time defending champion Colonials. He is the most ballyhooed schoolboy to enter the draft since perhaps Kelley Myers, who was the #1 overall pick of the Celtics, back in 1951. He was a six-time MVP, and was named to the Hall of Fame upon his retirement in 1967.

Instead of heading for the West Coast, it appears Jack will be heading for the Windy City. The Bulls have missed the playoffs in four of the last six years, and, outside of one championship in 1974, have never gotten past the conference semifinals. They went 29-53 a year ago, and have a roster without direction heading into next season. Jimmie Cain, whose starting status in Chicago is most affected by Jack's presumed arrival, averaged a team-high 20.1 points a game last year.

The team does have promising point guard Joe Anderson. The Baylor grad is entering his second season; he averaged 11.2 points, 6.1 assists and four rebounds a game in his rookie year.

Interestingly enough, I believe this is the last time we hear/read Joe Anderson's name.

Sporting News, 1985 Draft Issue
Special: NBA Scouting Report, Jack Dawkins
Age: 21 Height: 6'8 Weight: 248 pounds


The four-year National Player of the Year maxxed out his game at the collegiate level early on, and has been somewhat stagnant for at least two seasons. He has played against professionals since his freshman year, participating in New York City summer leagues, and playing at the famed Rucker Park. At the pro level, there will likely be some growing pains. His ballhandling, rebounding, and defense all need some polishing, and his mid-range jump shot is not as reliable as some other players.


However, make no mistake. This kid is going to be basketball for the next fifteen years.


He is a quick learner, has quick-twitch reflexes, and is as strong as any player to come into the league. While his game needs a little polishing, that is all it requires. There is no hole in his game. He is coachable as well. There is no ego on him. He led two teams of substandard players to consecutive national championships at a school that had never sniffed the postseason before he arrived. He knows how to win, he knows how to motivate players to play, and he can play with anyone.


Within three years, he may be the best player in the game. Within five, he may be the best to ever play it.

The 1985 NBA Draft
(color/color designates current/potential, as seen in the game)

As expected, Jack went #1 to Chicago. He rates, color-wise, as the generational Purple/Purple. That is reserved for only the elite player in the game. I have not seen anyone come into the league with that designation yet.

PG Richie Russell (B/B), a two-time first-team All American out of Southern Cal, went #2 to Milwaukee. He is probably in a worse position than Jack, as the Bucks have no stars...dependable players, but no stars. Russell should be one of the top offensive point guards in basketball, if all breaks right. He does not appear to be anywhere near solid, defensively...but he could be an all-timer on the scoring end.

Rice guard Michael Drake went third overall to Detroit. The Pistons have a growing roster of young talent, led by former Rice star Brian Crawford. Crawford averaged 24.8 points a game last season, and is blossoming into a star. They also have former Nebraska forward Tommy Henderson; he was the Rookie of the Year last season. There's a lot of room for improvement there, but with those three, the Pistons are definitely on their way up. Drake appears to be a solid all-around player, though he may not be a rebounder. He should be a good two-way player.

The Lakers snagged forward Joshua Berry, the Maryland star. He was the #1 recruit in the nation once upon a time, and has made good on that potential. He looks like a scoring machine, even if he can't handle the ball to save his arse.

Houston landed forward Anton Silverstein, out of Columbia, with the fifth pick. This screams bust to me, as outside of being a capable defender and dependable inside scorer, he doesn't really do much well.

The Clippers grabbed Glenn Davis, out of Penn. The guard looks like a three-point specialist off the bench.

Other players of note (or guys I've written about before):

Kermit Lee, the Princeton blocking machine, went #8 to Golden State. He should continue that tradition there.

Maryland forward Grant Crites, who was so good in the NCAA title game against GW, went 13th to Sacramento. He has scoring potential, as well as defensively ability. He may be a steal.

Bruno Bui, who led Florida to the Final Four a year ago, went 17th to the Sixers. He may be another dependable two-way player, though he can't score from anywhere outside five feet.

Princeton star Travis Cruz went 20th to Utah. This was a major reach, as he doesn't have much in the way of any potential.

For their second round pick, the Bulls got Long Island forward, Timmy McBroom! That makes me happy. He should be a great rebounder, but it's unlikely he gets much opportunity to show that.

Former walk-on Regis Devreney (don't get that twisted, he was the 23rd-ranked recruit his senior year) was drafted by San Antonio in the second round. He should be a decent bench piece.

Mr. Irrelevant is Jeffrey Lovelace, out of Canisius. He went to Portland with the 46th pick.

The Purple Players


FBPB designates the game's elite with a purple rating. Then blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. The purple designation is used very rarely.


Here is a look at the purple (either current rating or potential) throughout history. Please note, this is a little difficult to organize for this medium, and thus, may be a little rough to read.


1950: None

PG Kelley Myers, Boston (B/P; 1951 draftee out of UCLA)
SF Zachary Kutz, Fort Wayne (B/P; 1951 draftee out of Marquette)

C Brian Deese, Boston (B/P; drafted #1 by DAL in '81; traded for Dom Winkler)

1983: Deese (B/P), Anderson (P/P), Winkler (B/P), Burr (P/P), Gooden (P/P)
C Royal Bryant, Portland (B/P; drafted #2 in '80)

1984: Winkler (B/P), Burr (P/P), Gooden (B/P)


Going into this season, there are only:


Jack (P/P), Winkler (B/P), Burr (P/P), Deese (B/P; FA)


Four players in the entire league are looked at is having the potential of being elite; only two are considered there. Over the whole of league history, only 43 players have ever held the designation. Very few held it for multiple years.


That's pretty esteemed company, to be honest.

Here are the biggest signings, money-wise.

Code:
1985 Free Agents Player Pos Team Years Starting Salary Total Salary ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ian Rowland SG Los Angeles (LAC) 7 $1,470,000 $14,148,750 Brian Deese C Boston 7 $1,050,000 $10,106,250 Joshua Jones C San Antonio 7 $1,050,000 $10,106,250 Harris Connors PF Utah 7 $1,050,000 $10,106,250 Jules Howes SG Boston 7 $1,050,000 $10,106,250 Clemente Ellis C Dallas 7 $1,027,877 $9,893,317 Renato Young C Cleveland 7 $1,021,099 $9,828,077 Frank Padgett C Utah 7 $974,796 $9,382,412 James Anderson SG Indiana 5 $1,470,000 $8,820,000 Robert Render PG Golden State 5 $616,446 $3,698,676 Murray Hale SF Los Angeles (LAL) 5 $554,218 $3,463,862 Gary Sebastian PG Philadelphia 5 $568,144 $3,408,864 Larry Player PF Philadelphia 5 $535,317 $3,345,732 Lauren Oshea PG Denver 4 $660,472 $3,038,171 George Huie SF Houston 2 $1,079,612 $2,294,176 Emile Manson PG Phoenix 4 $392,857 $1,866,070 James Pilgrim SF Phoenix 4 $400,660 $1,843,036 Sandy Moody SF Cleveland 4 $384,046 $1,766,612 Casey Wolfgang PF Philadelphia 4 $365,411 $1,680,890 David Neubauer SF Indiana 4 $330,999 $1,572,246 Harland Malcom C Golden State 4 $325,995 $1,548,476 Miles Burdett PF Atlanta 4 $295,615 $1,359,830 Edward Shank PF Chicago 4 $236,849 $1,089,506




Deese resigned with Boston for seven years. A handful of players went for that much; five of them were centers. All were resignings, obviously.


George Huie, at 36, is now a role player...but Houston rewarded him for his service with a contract worth just over a million a year. He put up 10.2 points and 7.7 rebounds last year, along with 7.4 assists. The scoring is down, but he is still an incredibly well-rounded player.


As far as Chicago signings go, nobody really moved the needle. The biggest signing, if you can call it that, is Edward Shank, in his fourth year from TCU. He has moved around; this is his fourth team in five years. He averaged 12.8 minutes, 5.4 points, and 2.8 rebounds a year ago.


He is the only player who signed for over $100k out of this group.


Jack may have to learn to lose with grace.

NBA 1985-86 Preview


Apparently, people think Jack is going to affect the Bulls, and the league, quite a bit. The Bulls are picked to finish first in the Central Division. In fact, experts are picking the Bulls to win the NBA title (based off the projected order in the game's draft preview). This seems rather ludicrous. The projection for the divisions are as follows:


Atlantic
1. Boston 2. Philadelphia 3. New Jersey 4. Washington 5. New York


Central
1. Chicago 2. Indiana 3. Cleveland 4. Detroit 5. Milwaukee 6. Atlanta


Midwest
1. Utah 2. Denver 3. Dallas 4. San Antonio 5. Houston 6. Sacramento


Pacific
1. Portland 2. LA Clippers 3. Seattle 4. Phoenix 5. Golden State 6. LA Lakers


If I were to pick the divisions, they would be


Atlantic
1. Boston: Deese is league's top center, has great surrounding cast.

2. New Jersey: Denny Smythe still great in his 14th year; league's top PG Perez entering his prime (17.9 ppg, 14.5 apg, 7.1 rpg a year ago).
3. Philadelphia: SF Whitney Gooden long one of league's best, but scoring will be a premium for 76ers.
4. Washington: Young, up-and-coming roster, led by SG Huge Turnage.
5. New York: Very young; John Jennings coming into his own at SG, and Richard Mertens league's top rookie C.


Central
1. Indiana: Better overall roster than the Bulls, led by young scoring machine Andrew Edmiston (24.8 career ppg).
2. Chicago: Severe issues at the point prevent them from going to full contender.
3. Detroit: This is going to be Chicago's big rival, with Crawford and Drake from Rice, and the reigning ROY, Thomas Henderson.
4. Cleveland: A lot of talent, but depth issues. PF Luke Black is the real deal.
5. Milwaukee: Snagged PG Richie Russell in the draft, but a lot more work to do.
6. Atlanta: Loads of busted youth. Early candidate for top pick next year.


Midwest
1. Utah: Defending champs favorites to repeat, mainly due to Harris Connors (23.1 ppg, 9.0 rpg).
2. Denver: Jim Burr as steady as can be, guarantee for at least 16 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 7.0 apg.
3. Dallas: Dom Winkler league's top scorer, averaged 28.0 ppg the last two seasons.
4. San Antonio: Stephen Ramirez is a legend, but his numbers are down a lot, and he still starts.
5. Sacramento: Keenan Sweet took a massive step last year, averaging 25.2 ppg and 9.3 rpg.
6. Houston: Lacking talent, and relying on 15-year man George Huie.


Pacific
1. LA Clippers: Clips are ready to become big player in West.
2. Portland: Made the conference finals each of the last three years. Ripe for decline.
3. Seattle: As much talent as anyone, but need C Cortez Strong to continue to rise.
4. Pheonix: Another team loaded with talent...but aging talent.
5. Golden State: PG Lionel Condon is a rising talent, but he needs help.
6. LA Lakers: Joshua Berry will be given every opportunity to star in Los Angeles.

Okay, so I can't post the All-NBA Preseason Team the way I had it at SimNation.

This changes in the future, as I figure things out along the way. But, here is the 1985-86 Preseason All-NBA Team:

C: Brian Deese, Boston
PF: Harris Connors, Utah
SF: Jack Dawkins, Chicago
SG: Jim Burr, Denver
PG: Tom Perez, New Jersey


All-Rookie Team
C: Kermit Lee, Golden State
PF: Richard Mertens, New York
SF: Jack Dawkins, Chicago
SG: Ivory Perez, Cleveland
PG: Richie Russell, Milwaukee

So, this board can be quite limiting, in terms of the size of what I can post. SimNation (and the OOTP boards, actually) are much more forgiving when it comes to post size.

So, here is where you can find the word on Jack's first Bulls team. There's two links, as I'm not sure if SimNation allows guests to view or not. (I know OOTP does.)

Looking at George Washington...


The 1985-86 preseason rankings are out, and the two-time defending champions are nowhere to be found. Clemson tops the polls for the first time, followed by Duke, Kansas, Missouri, and Colorado State, who is beginning to peak.


Armbruster has blossomed into a B/B player, but none of the other players have taken off. And God help Julian Thaxton, the true freshman who steps in for Jack.


Oh, and Charlie Radcliff, who spent three years with GW, including being its head coach last year, took off for Kentucky. The thirty-two year old coach did what his previous two predecessors didn't: he left at the right time. So GW wins two titles, has the greatest player on the planet, and is on their fourth head coach in five years.


The new head coach, William Sullivan, led UConn to their first-ever NCAA appearance last year, and built that program up from a 5-24 year four seasons ago. He has serious recruiting chops, but little else. Unfortunately, his staff lacks everything.

1985-86 Regular Season: October/November

I won't do the in-depth recaps of games here, like when Jack was in college. At least, not until a meaningful game.

I also won't do the preseason. Chicago went 5-1.

10.30.85: vs New Jersey (0-0). Jack started his career in front of 18,676 at Chicago Stadium, and started it off with a bang. He went for 37-19-8, with four blocks and a steal, in the Bulls' 122-95 win over New Jersey. Jimmie Cain added 23, 6 assists and four rebounds, while Greg Escalera scored 15 and added seven assists and five rebounds. Eddie Shank played 28 minutes, as Richard Mims was in foul trouble, and scored nine points and added ten rebounds. Jack went 14-22 from the field, and 8-8 from the line. Richard Lovelace led the Nets with 17 and 10 boards; top guard Tom Perez added sixteen with six assists.

11.2.85: at Atlanta (0-3). The Hawks surprised the Bulls, 87-86; rather, the Bulls misfired, and it was kind of Jack's fault. They called his name, down 87-84, with eight seconds left. He was funneled into the free throw line, and tried to pass it outside. However, everyone was covered. He shot it, and made it, but the Hawks were able to run out the clock, and steal the win. Jack had his first triple-double, with 23-11-12 numbers. Mims added 18 with six boards, with Cain added 17-4-4. The Smiths--Rex and Chris--scored 16 each to lead the basement-dwelling Hawks to their first win.

11.3.85: vs Washington (2-1). The Bulls, behind 38 points, 15 boards, 7 assists, and 5 blocks by Jack, blasted the Bullets, 107-92. Cain added 30 for the Bulls, who didn't have another player in double-figures. C Jon McElroy scored 23 and pulled down ten rebounds for the Bullets, who fall to 2-2. PF Lamont Cioffi and guard Hugh Turnage (still love that name) added 20.

11.7.85: vs Atlanta (1-4). The Bulls avenge the loss to the Hawks earlier this week, with a 108-91 pasting. It was 84-60 after three. Jack had 26-9-11. Greg Escalera had 21, while Cain added 19, and Mims 16 to pace the Bulls. Chris Smith scored 20 off the bench for the Hawks.

11.8.85: vs New Jersey (2-3). Jack had himself an ordinary night scoring-wise, putting in just 20. But he dished EIGHTEEN assists, registered eight rebounds, got five steals, and four blocks. Jimmie Cain scored 28, while Richard Mims had 22 and 10 boards. Escalera had 16, while Landon Creamer had 11.

As of this moment, Jack is averaging:

28.8 ppg, 12.4 rpg, 11.2 apg, 3.2 bpg, 3.0 spg, 1.4 topg

Unbelievable.

The Bulls are off to a solid 4-1 start, which leads their division. Boston (7-0), Utah (6-1), Golden State (5-1), and Portland (5-2) are off to great starts. The Knicks are 0-6, while the Suns have started off 1-6.

11.11.85: at Washington (3-3). Another game against the Bullets, and this one was a laugher-turned-thriller. The Bullets led 89-66 after three. With 9:28 left, it was 95-78. With 6:40 left, it was 97-82. With five minutes to go, it was 99-89.

With 1:40 to go, it was 102-100...Chicago.

Jack found Creamer for that score, which broke a tie, and gave Chicago the final points in an amazing comback. The Bulls outscored the Bullets, 36-11, in the final eleven minutes to get the shocking victory. It was virtually silent in the arena, watching the Bullets drop that one.

Jack had a triple-double with a 30-17-10 line, despite five turnovers. Cain scored 19, while Al Zumwalt had 14 off the bench (and a -10 +/-), while Joe Anderson scored 10. Emil Andrae and Lamont Cioffi put up 21 each for the Bullets. Jon McElroy scored 18 and had 11 rebounds.

11.12.85: at Philadelphia (4-3). The Bulls travel to Philadelphia and grind out an 86-78 win over the Sixers. The Bulls got a 25-16 lead after the first quarter, and the game was a stalemate from then on. Jack went for 27-17-9, 13-13 from the line, to pace the way. Cain scored 17, while Mims pulled down 14 boards. Whitney Gooden, who probably held the title as the top SF in the game before Jack came along, had 21 boards, six rebounds, and five assists to lead Philly. Woodrow Taber had 10 points and 15 rebounds, along with five blocks.

11.15.85: vs New Jersey (5-4). Another game with the Nets, another win for the Bulls, this one 121-118. Oddly enough, all three games against the Nets have been at home. Jack went for 41, 14 assists, and eight rebounds. Escalera brought in 20, while Cain had 16. Danny Smythe had 29 and nine rebounds, and deep reserve Tony Barnes scored 21 for the Nets.

I just looked over the schedule. The Bulls have a three-game set in Milwaukee in February. This...isn't the best game at scheduling. Oh well.

11.17.85: vs Atlanta (3-8). One more in this loop, then games against other teams. Jack went for 30-10-13, while Cain scored 17, leading the Bulls to an easy 106-82 win. Ronald Conn scored 14 to lead a rather mediocre effort out of the Hawks.

11.19.85: vs Houston (5-4). Chicago rolled over the Rockets at the Stadium, 133-94. You would think that Jack would have gone nuts in this game. He had, arguably, his worst game as a pro, scoring just 13 points, getting nine boards, six assists, and five blocks. However, NINE Bulls scored in double-figures. Del Scholl led the Rockets with 20. The win sets the Bulls' record to 9-1.

11.21.85: vs Milwaukee (2-9). The Bulls win, 108-92, behind 24-13-11 from Jack. Can added an efficient 17, while Mims put up 16 and 8 boards. The game was the first matchup of the first two picks of the draft. Richie Russell had 11 points, on 4-18 shooting, and eight assists. Adrian Mathison put up 18 for the Bucks.

11.23.85: vs San Antonio (7-4). The Spurs roll into town, and for once, it wasn't Jack leading the way. Cain puts up 30 on 15-21 shooting, as the Bulls win 108-85. Jack had a 21-7-8 night, with four steals. Clarence Cassidy had 14, seven rebounds, and four assists to help the cause. Star Isidro Brainard led the Spurs with 18. The Bulls are showing some excellent resolve, in not letting anyone go off for a big night against them.

11.25.85: vs Milwaukee (2-11). Cain erputed for 35, on 16-21 shooting, as the Bulls rip the Bucks, 120-81. Jack added 22-10-5, with four blocks. Escalera had 15 with five rebounds and eight assists, while Eddie Shank had 10 and seven boards off the bench. Russell, in his second meeting against Jack, had just four points on 2-9 shooting. Nobody really led the Bucks...that's how bad they were.

11.27.85: at Detroit (6-8). Jack returned to form for this one, going for 32-15-9 with five steals, propelling the Bulls to an easy, 115-95 win. Many felt Detroit would be the class of the division (okay, I felt that), but the Bulls waltzed in and detroyed them. Creamer had a great game, scoring 21 on 9-11 shooting, and adding five dimes. Brian Crawford led the Pistons with 30 points and six boards. Vicented Williams added 16 points, 15 rebounds, and six assists for the struggling Pistons.

11.28.85: at Boston (13-2). An early battle of conference leaders is a coast for the Bulls, who defeat the Atlantic-leading Celtics, 100-83. That's because Jack went for 38-15-13, with five steals, and NO turnovers. Cain scored 20 with five boards and four assists to chip in. Former Arizona State product Thomas Jones led the C's with 22 points and eight rebounds. Brian Deese scored just 12 points on 4-14 shooting. The Celtics shot just 41% from the field, while the Bulls were 49%. In true 80s form, the Bulls were just 1-3 from outside the arc, while the C's were 1-7.

11.30.85: vs Detroit (7-10). The Bulls closed out one of the most successful months in franchise history with a 116-95 drubbing of the Pistons. Jack went for 30-9-8, while Cain and Mims equally split 36 points. Crawford scored 21 for the Pistons, who got just two points from Williams this time around.


The Bulls closed out November at a league-best 15-1. They are seven games ahead of Indiana. They have won fourteen in a row, and it's not even close. They rank second in the league in total offense and total defense, and have the league's most efficient offense and defense. Okay then.

Jack, meanwhile, spent his first month in the NBA averaging a triple-double.

November GW update: The Colonials finished November at 3-2. Hector is averaging a team-high 16, while Armbruster is putting up 13.2 and 9.0 rebounds a game. Woods is averaging 12.0 points and 8.0 rebounds. Not bad. The kid who took Jack's place, Julian Thaxton, is averaging just 5.6 points and 5.4 rebounds, along with 3.0 assists a game. Duke sits atop the poll, with Clemson #2, and UNC #3. The ACC appears like it'll be fun this year...three more teams are in the top ten (#6 Virginia, #7 Wake, #8 Maryland).
