    The Sea Devils Sting the Dolphins and Get a Win

    WILMINGTON | The rivalry between Cape Fear Community College (14-15 overall, 5-8 Region 10) and Brunswick Community College (14-15, 4-9) never disappoints. “I think it’s a fun game for the boys. I think it gives them an extra oomph of energy before the game,” CFCC head coach Ryan Mantlo said pre-game. With Brunswick Community College winning the first matchup earlier this season, this was the redemption game that the Sea Devils were craving. The Sea Devils satisfied their craving with a win vs. Brunswick Community College Wednesday night, 60-56. In the first half both teams struggled to get things rolling. With Rakeem Wilson sidelined due to a hand injury, sophomore…

    Blake Griffin the Human Highlight Reel

    Is Blake Griffin really as good as Sports Center top 10 plays are making him seem? Something I have wanted to write about for awhile now. First I want to state that I think Blake Griffin is a highly talented player with upside, but is he a great NBA player? If you take his explosive dunking ability away, he does not have much to work with. Many were hoping he would come back after the lockout with an improved jump shot but Griffin’s mid-range jump shot is still decent at best. More or less, I believe his career will consist of huge dunks and highlight reels but no championships or MVP’s.…

    And then Lin

    What a story. If you have not heard the name Jeremy Lin, then you must have been living under a rock for the past week. This guy is amazing. He is stepping up in the most opportune times. I have been watching the NBA for years and have seen great stories and players come and go. But Lin is different; he is creating a buzz that is unheard of. Lin is a hard player not to pull for because of the attitude and effort he shows us every night. Lin is not just a great guy that is becoming the poster boy for the NBA. He is also putting up…

    Austin Rivers Cements Himself in Duke History

    What a game, does it get any better than two top ten teams going back and forth trying to win the tobacco road rivalry? The answer is no, no it does not get much better than that. www.flickr.com/photos/deebeephotography/6553177775/ Last night Austin Rivers and the Duke Blue devils put together one of the most amazing comeback’s I have ever witnessed in college basketball.  It was a close game throughout; both teams battled and never gave up. The lights were not too bright for this young man last night, in front of 21,000 screaming Tar Heel fans he had the biggest game of his life. The score was 82-72 with about 2…

    Kobe Bryant is Truly One of The Greats

    Kobe Bryant is hands down one of the best basketball playersto ever grace the NBA. He has broken most records there are to break in thestaples center. When Kobe came into the NBA as a young seventeen year oldhigh school athlete, it was unsure the impact he would make. Soon everyonewould know what this young kid could do. As a rookie Bryant entered the NBAdunk contest impressing judges as he flew his way to a NBA Slam Dunk ContestTrophy. The Slam Dunk Trophy was just the beginning. Bryant wouldcontinue his dominance four years later as he teamed up with fellow all starShaquille O’Neil.  The dynamic duo ledthe Lakers to a…

    Lebron James Performance Against the Golden State Warriors

    How can an athlete such as Lebron James become the target of such scrutiny. Well that is exactly it; he is a star. For years we as fans of the great sport of basketball have been putting our athletes under turmoil.Lebron has led the Miami Heat to a blazing 8-2 start. So when Lebron has a sub par performance in the 4th quarter most tend to jump the gun. Lebron is averaging roughly 30 points a game with 8 rebounds and 8 assist. He is arguably having a MVP type of year, but does not get noted for it. Before jumping the gun and tossing the entire season under the…
