Mason-VCU was slightly more competitive than the Maryland-Duke laugher, with VCU pulling it out at home to remain atop the CAA. In the end, it was just too much Eric Maynor — whose shorts are still tight — for the Patriots.
Despite the outcome, it was an entertaining, back-and-forth affair containing a couple highlights that had Chris and I texting like little girls …
Highlight No. 1: 6’4″ Cam Long dunking on 6’9″ Larry Sanders, whom the announcers had just told us has a 91″ (or 7’7″) wingspan.
Highlight No. 2: The ESPN 2 color guy — whose name eludes me — with a terrific line regarding Gerald Henderson’s jersey hanging from the rafters.
