Hello Rob Wegman here and it’s time for the WRAF Sports Update.
In an ironic finish to this year’s college basketball season, one of the least dramatic NCAA tournaments in recent memory was capped off last night by one of the most dramatic championship games in history. Trailing Memphis 60-51 with just over two minutes remaining, Kansas managed to tie the game in the closing seconds and then dominated the overtime period to secure their first title in 20 years. Memphis’ poor free throw shooting, which had been a concern all season long, finally bit the Tigers at the worst possible time, opening the door for the Jayhawks to steal the victory and remove Bill Self’s name from the list of great coaches who have never won a championship. John Calipari will have to wait until next year for his chance to do the same.
And now that the college guys are all done, we can fully shift our attention to the NBA. Possibly the most anticipated postseason ever will get underway in just a couple of weeks but there is still plenty to be decided between now and then. The final playoff spot in both conferences is yet to be decided, along with the 7th seed in the West. And the top 6 teams in the West are only separated by 3 ½ games so there’s still time for some serious reshuffling. Our hometown Hawks can secure a spot in the playoffs with a win over Indiana tonight and a New Jersey loss. Then they can start focusing on getting hammered by the Celtics in the first round.
That’s your afternoon sports update sponsored by Toccoa Falls College. It’s a crazy day for intramurals as the basketball playoffs commence in addition to it being opening day for softball. You’ve just got to love those day-night, inter-sport doubleheaders.
