Not to beat a dead horse, but the previous thread was closed. It is now being reported by ESPN and WRAL that Ty Lawson might not play in the ACC tourney due to his toe swelling up. This is because he played too hard on it in the Duke game. Seriously.
The pupil has become the master.
I heard he has chicken pox too. And Gerald Henderson broke his nose on Sunday.
I would not be surprised if Lawson does not play. There was some talk that he had a undetected fracture of some type. It could be interesting to watch. 3 games in a row on a bad toe could do some damage. I would not be surprised if UNC did not play Lawson to keep him from getting hurt. Because he is out, they probably would not lose their number 1 seed. And, of course, there is a chance they could still win it all.
Bet you a 50 stamp that if we make it to Sunday Lawson is resurrected. Suddenly, the 'toe' issue with disappear!
If Hansborough is 1 point shy of JJ then Roy will probably schedule a game in mid April with Western Carolina or somebody so he can get the record.
I understand that Tyler does have the all time NCAA record for most times traveling and not being called.
Where are our friendly hole fans when you need them? Surely one of them can tell us we are mistaken about our doubting this bogus injury.
I was listening to one of the local sports radio shows on the way home and they had a sound clip of Lawson. After the Duke game he was blathering on about how he's looking forward to playing the tournaments healthy, unlike last year.
That Roy is a real piece of work. What a maroon!
