« A few thoughts from ULM 23, FIU 17 (OT) | Main | Coley Sun Belt POW; Conferences & Malls »

Basketball Jones; TY & History

The women ballers fell to LSU Sunday, 76-69, in the championship game of the FIU Thanksgiving Classic, but the weekend transitioned the seasons from football/volleyball to basketball. The former seasons ended. The latter seasons get some home action this week with doubleheaders at The Branch against Arkansas State and South Alabama.

After the women hoopsters upset Iowa Friday night on Jerica Coley's leaner at the horn, the men took out Coastal Carolina 87-77 for the first career college win for Richard Pitino. Saturday, the volleyball team lost its epilogue match, against Central Florida hours before the football team suffered its final heartbreak to Louisiana-Monroe, putting to bed two disappointing seasons.


As soon as T.Y. Hilton crossed the goal line on his 75-yard punt return, I got a text message from a longtime friend and Colts fan crowing that Hilton got the first of many return touchdowns. Hilton later became the first Colt to have a receiving and return touchdown in the same game, no small thing for a franchise that had Hall of Fame all-purpose guy Lenny Moore and Lydell Mitchell.

And, with the Dolphins, tight end Michael Egnew's game jersey remains pristine.

I miss the days of having a player like TY that can CATCH the ball on kickoff's and punts. Is there a way to see if Hilton has the best stats of all Rookie Receivers in the NFL this year? He is probabley one of the Top 10 rookies in the NFL (in all possitions) right now. CRAZY!!

GO Panthers!

Hilton is the real deal, and he is the ONLY reason that FIU went to consecutive bowl games. Don Strock would have done as well with TY playing for him. Fore!

Mario is a very below average coach without TY.returns 17 starters and finish next to last in the sun belt..what a joke
