Oh How We Love the Sweet Sixteen !

The Fighting Illini just finished off Nevada 71 to 59. Amazingly they won this game with an obviously sick Dee Brown. It was reported that he had stomach issues and leg cramps. Sounds like someone had diarrhea? Illinois showed they could win without a dominating game from their three headed backcourt monster, Brown-Williams-Head. How did they do it? They took it inside to the hoop. James Augustine and Jack Ingram had career high scoring games. Along with Roger Powell Jr they controlled the paint against a bigger team. Deron Williams stepped it up in the second half with some awesome passing and the Illini built a 20 point lead. They won this game with their big men and showed nation they are not a one dimentional team. Look out NCAA here comes the Illini!

Workout Stats: Yeah I have stats for you that do not involve grotesque eating. I hit the I&M Canal bike trail this morning for a little stroll. This is mainly a flat terrain gravel path with little excitement, but I was there for work. All other fun trails would be too wet & muddy for riding this morning.

Just give us the stats mam: 17.3 miles, 1 hr 36 minutes 56 seconds, avg speed 8.6, max speed 18.2. It is the most I have ridden at one time and pretty good for a guy who has spent the last two days on the couch with Coke and Pizza in hand. Tomorrow will be a gym day and maybe some hoops? March Madness got me pumped.

Alright, time to get back to the NCAA hoops. I am out. Later.
