Aldridge Disappears, Longhorns Follow Suit

LSU 70, Texas 60 (OT)

After battling back to tie a game they had no business salvaging on Daniel Gibson’s 3 pointer, Texas were completely overwhelmed by LSU in the extra session — a ridiculous 3 from 315 pounds-and-counting Glen Davis (above) being the crucial blow in OT.

Save for 5 blocks (including a game-saver in the closing seconds of regulation) this was a rough day for Longhorns F LaMarus Aldridge (4 points, 2 for 14 shooting), overwhelmed most of the game by Davis and rarely a factor with the ball in his hands.

Senior F Brad Buckman can hold his head high — without his inspired play (14 rebounds, 2 blocks and several LSU shots altered), this one wouldn’t have been close.

LSU’s Tyrus Thomas did nothing to change his likely Top 5 NBA Draft status (if he comes out), with 21 points and 13 rebounds.

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, it turns out Gary Poole does have other wives.

The Kansas City Star’s Mike DeArmond is reporting UAB’s Mike Anderson will be named the new head coach at Missouri.
