Where are they now - A good day for GT in the pro's

Chris Bosh had BY FAR his best game as an NBA pro, hitting his 1st NBA 3-pointer with 7.2 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. Then he proceeds to score 10 of his season high 25 in the overtime periods (2). Check out Steve Francis's sour grapes quote - "He was lucky. He just threw it up and hoped it went in". Know what Stevie, IT DID GO IN!! So take that and your sore loser attitude and stuff it. By the way, I saw the highlights tonight and a couple of comments. First Bosh's 3-pointer was a wide-open baseline shot as Vince Carter passed out of an almost triple team. He did not hesitate and went right up with up and got nothin but net. Second, old Stevie Francis missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer to win, THEN missed another 3-pointer in OT to win. So there are the sour grapes. Bosh's overall stats - 25 points on 7/11 shooting, 10/10 from the line (6/6 in OT), 9 boards (6 offensive). Here is another re-cap of the game, and here is one from the Canadian Press. Also, from Hoopsworld, this quote "Who is the smartest, most court-aware rookie? No, not King Hype. It’s Chris Bosh. Just watch this kid play. He doesn’t make mistakes. He has a nice shot, doesn’t force things and can do everything needed. He also has ice water in his veins. This kid will be a star, and soon." For an update on Rookie Stats so far (prior to this game), click here.

Meanwhile in the NFL, Kelly Campbell caught 4 balls for 115 yards including a TD in the Vikings loss to the Raiders. Nice outing.

Also in the NFL, Dez White caught 4 passes for 39 yards, including a TD as well in the Bears loss to St.Louis.

Tony Hollings returned 3 kicks for the Houston Texans for a total of 32 yards as he continues his comeback from an ACL tear. Houston beat the Bills. Nice story about Hollings and his rehab from a torn ACL.

Lastly, a story a GT transfer (out not in) Andy Hall, quarterbacking at Div I-AA Univ of Delaware. Had an outstanding performance Sat. earning his 3rd offensive player of the week honor in the Atlantic 10.
