I thought the C-B-S network color commentators on the Wichita State/Ohio State basketball game the other night were abysmal. They both shared plenty about Ohio State, even as the Shockers built up a big first-half lead.
I’ve always believed ex-jocks in the broadcast booth are sometimes quite lazy when it comes to preparation. Somebody probably handed them their pre-game notes on W-S-U at half time.
I think there are two story lines to the Shockers’ appearance in the Final Four, for the second time in the program’s history. First for me is the amazing way the coaches have kept a winning team together, even as several of their starters were injured. This is a testament to tough players and good coaching.
And that brings me to the second story line: will coach Gregg Marshall stay at Wichita State after this season? I’m sure he’ll be getting some attractive job offers in the days ahead.
Our thought for today is from Pearl Buck:
“The secret of joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.”
