Chris Paul Saves The Clippers; UNC Might’ve Lost Their Shot At A Title

Luckily, they have Chris Paul. Three or four times this year, he’s bailed them out. He did it again in overtime of their 87-83 win over the Pistons.

NCAA Tournament Players To Watch: South Region

Purdue's E'twaun Moore

Purdue's E'twaun Moore

Earlier this morning we gave you four Players to Watch in the Midwest region. Here are four more from the South…

*** *** ***

E’TWAUN MOORE, Purdue, SG, Jr. The Boilermakers don’t need to look hard for motivation. Pretty much everybody wrote them off when star forward Robbie Hummel went down with a season-ending knee injury in late-February, and the remaining stragglers signed Purdue’s death certificate after Minnesota ran through them in the Big Ten tournament. If anybody is going to cover for Hummel’s absence, it’s Moore (16.6 ppg). Read More »
