Want to travel the globe? Play college Basketball

I used to look forward to the Maui Classic college basketball tournament, held Thanksgiving week each year from the beautiful island paradise of Maui.  That holiday tournament along with The Great Alaska Shootout and a Preseason NIT affair in New York were about as exotic it got for college basketball athletes.

Now, in addition to those long running events, there are tournaments in such locales as Puerto Rico, The U.S. Virgin Islands, South Padre Island, Las Vegas and Disney World.  Oh and let's throw that hotbed of college basketball, Cancun into the mix. too.

To fill out these tournaments teams like South Dakota St., Longwood, and Presbyterian were invited to play in these prestigious events.

As long as television wants to cover these games and chambers of commerce want to hold them, expect to see more and more of these events popping up in warm weather outposts, where alumni can tan on the beaches and wives can hit the duty free shops.

Nets Can't Find the Bottom of the Net

The NBA's New Jersey Nets look like they will set the record for futility to start the season when they take on the World Champion Lakers Sunday at the Staples Center.

The Nets currently stand at 0-16 and are showing no signs of life whatsoever.   Coach Lawrence Frank at this point is at a loss for words. 

Outside of Devin Harris, the Nets roster contains such names as Tony Battie, Bobby Simmons, and Trenton Hassell.  Add the services of Rafer Alston and what do you get?  0-16.

If the Nets don't get a win Dec. 4 vs. Charlotte, or Dec. 6 vs. The Knicks, they may have to wait until Dec 23. when the play Minnessota.

Tiger Woods Driving is Erratic both on the Course and Off

Tiger Woods ranked tied for 86th in driving accuracy this year on The PGA Tour.  He was tied with Tom Pernice Jr. and behind such notables as Todd Hamilton and Ciff Kresge.

It's another kind of driving that Tiger does that has people talking today.  Driving his SUV, Woods hit a fire hydrant and a tree early Friday morning.  Woods was seen to have cuts on his lips and blood around his mouth.  He was transported by fire rescue to the hospital, where he was later released.

Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren apparently had to use a golf club to smash out the back window out of the SUV when she came outside. Woods was laying in the street with his wife hovering over him.

Strange story indeed.  Can't wait to hear of charges are filed and what else may come out of this.
