SPORTS EDITOR’S BLOG — Just arrived in New York about an hour ago with EAGLE photographer Bruce Newman. Ready to see the city a bit and then head over to Madison Square Garden for tonight’s NIT Final Four game between the Ole Miss Rebels and Dayton Flyers. Our hotel is only a block and a half away, so even if it keeps raining, Bruce and I shouldn’t get too wet.
Bruce and I are excited about some basketball tonight. The NIT Final Four may not be as glamorous as the NCAA’s version in Indianapolis, but having covered this event two years ago, I know it’s run pretty well. Hopefully the basketball will be as exciting as Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy advertised.
Well, until later, Rebel fans. (March 30, 2010)
