Controversial Tennessee win

Sure enough, Candace Parker played, dropping 27 points and pulling in 10 boards as Tennessee squeaked by Rutgers tonight.
There was a controversial foul called with 0.2 seconds left and Rutgers leading 58-57--the refs had to look at it again to make sure it was before time expired and they decided it was. Nicky Anosike, a lesser of the infamous Lady Vols, but a Lady Vol nonetheless, stepped to the line and drilled both free throws to seal the win.

The (Lady?) Scarlet Knights showed they belong tonight, coming into Knoxville and putting up one hell of a fight. Without Parker, Tennessee had no chance of winning that game. It looks like she's gonna be alright.

Over on the men's side, #6 Georgetown barely won at home against the unranked Villanova Wildcats, again on a pair of last second free throws. The final was 55-53.

Right now, Kansas and Texas are playing a tight one on ESPN. The game is at Texas, but I still think the Jayhawks will pull this one off. Texas leads 54-53 with 11 minutes left, but there are huge implications in this game. Texas is in third in the Big 12 standings, while Kansas is in first with K-State right on their tail.
I'm looking for Brandon Rush to take over and lead Kansas to victory.

Andy Pettitte, that hockey player with the slashed neck, and the final score of the Texas/Kansas game to come later.
