Coast to Tyus Edney against Mizzou

What a night in the college game. It's night's like this that make me love the game that much more, and make me wish Mrs. MTAC would go to be about 7 PM.

First link of the day has to go to this classic. A newscaster actually has
a bird crap right in his mouth. It has to be seen to be believed.

The first lady of Detroit,
Carlita Kilpatrick stands by her man, even though he continues to make a fool of her. This story is so good and never gets old to me.

The latest on the hottest high school Football recruit in the country:
Terrelle Pryor may now visit Oregon before he picks a school February 6th. He had narrowed his choices to Ohio State and Michigan, and according to yesterday's Cleveland Plain Dealer, Pryor's QB coach Roy Hall, says his "gut" tells him it's going to be Ohio State. We'll say this, if he ends up at Oregon, there must be an investigation. Nike CEO Phil Knight's deep pockets "supporting" the Oregon athletic programs has always been quite shady.

No shocker here,
John Edwards drops out of the Democratic Nominee Race. Meanwhile, one time Republican front runner is our of the Republican race and announces he'll back John McCain. It's looking better and better for McCain every day.

Here's one for you,
Manure can help you resist lung cancer. That 's right, George Costanza's favorite word. Hey, Marissa Tomei bought it.

Lebron Says It's Simple: Get him Jason Kidd and he'll get you a title. The problem is, you've gotta give something to get something in return. Something tells us the Nets don't want Larry Hughes and his $12.5 million a year for the next two and a half seasons.

Don't miss my man Verne Troyer at the Ivy with some hot unidentified blonde.

Kansas State 84 #2 Kansas 75 - The ranks of the unbeaten are down to one. We had the guts to call this one on Saturday, but backed out yesterday. Folks, this is a very good K-State team. The Wildcats hit a season high 12-26 from deep. Michael Beasley is the real deal. He nailed all four of his three pointers, on his way to a game high 25. Bill Walker was sensational. he was ultra-quick off the dribble and is extremely athletic. He had 22. Jacob Pullen scored a career-high 20 off the bench as K-State ended "The Streak." All three players are Freshman. We will have much more on this game in a few hours.

#1 Memphis 89 Houston 77 - There is no debate on who the #1 team in the country is right now. This wa ssupposed to be Memphis' toughest road test left, and they dominated the action, shooting a sizzling 58% from the field, while holding Houston to 35%. Chris Douglas-Roberts led all scorers with 30, while Joey Dorsey cleaned the glass with 22 boards. Robert Dozier added 21 points. Only Tennessee on February 23rd stands between Memphis and a perfect regular season.

#6 Georgetown 74 St. John's 42 - Vernon Macklin scored 18 off the bench on 8-10 shooting to lead the Hoyas to this blowout. This was an all around great game by JT3's club. They shot 53% from the field and held St. John's to just 10 field goals and 21%. How much longer can Norm Roberts stay off the hot seat in Queens?

#17 Drake 75 Creighton 65 - Drake is 19-1. That's right. 19-1 after another MVC win over Creighton, their second in a week. Josh Young, still rounding into form after injury, had a career-high 24 to go with Jonathon Cox's 16 and 10. The Bulldogs nailed 12 more three-pointers.

#7 Michigan State 51 Illinois 41 - The Spartans once again struggled to score and trailed 24-20 at the half, but thanks to Drew Neitzel, they escaped with a 10 point win. He scored nine second half points on his way to 15. The stat of the night came from this game. The Spartans didn't make a single three-pointer (0-7) and still won. Illinois was a porous 4-22 from deep and even worse, 7-19 from the line.

#23 Texas A&M 80 #10 Texas 63 - Just like Memphis and Georgetown, this was a total domination on both ends by the Aggies. A&M shot 56% from the field, and 7-13 on threes, while holding Texas to 34%. The only UT starter to score in double figures was DJ Augustine with 14. Josh Carter led the Aggies with a 19 and 10 double double, including four three-pointers. Dominique Kirk and Joseph Jones both added 14. "I couldn't be more proud of our team," Texas A&M coach Mark Turgeon said. "To think where we were a week ago, the world was coming to the end. It was good to bounce back."

#22 Mississippi 74 #18 Vanderbilt 58 - Both of these struggling teams needed this win badly. The Rebels controlled most of the game and kicked it up a notch in the second half to hand Vandy their fourth loss in five games. Remember when they were one of the last remaining unbeatens? Freshman Point Guard Chris Warren led the Rebels with 20 points, and Eniel Polynice scored 18. Both Ole Miss bigs Kenny Williams and Dwayne Curtis grabbed 10 boards.

#21 Pittsburgh 69 Villanova 57 - Villanova spent most of this season ranked, yet will be lucky to make the tournament. Four Panthers scored in double figures as they dominated this game, especially in the front court. Sam Young had 15 points, Dejuan Blair had 10 and 14 boards, and Tyrell Biggs came off the bench with 14 of his own. "We're right there as far as the conference goes," Pitt coach Jamie Dixon said. "Through all that it's pretty remarkable and I'm proud of our guys. I think it's a place no one thought we would be at this point."

Arkansas 78 #25 Mississippi State 58 - Like all other SEC teams not named Tennessee, Mississippi State took their turn as the flavor of the week, and then proceeded to go on the road and get spanked. Patrick Beverley had a double double 19 and 10, and Sonny Weems added 22 as the Razorbacks moved to within a game of MSU in the SEC West at 4-2. "They were the hottest team in our league, one of the hottest teams in the country," Arkansas Coach John Pelphrey said. "For us to be able to win tonight, we feel very fortunate."
