It saddens me, as a Hog fan, that the Razorback basketball team won’t be making an appearance in this year’s NCAA Tournament. It’s probably just as well, though, considering how badly the team played at season’s end.
Look to the Delta now.
The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Golden Lions, the 2010 SWAC Tournament Champions, will face Winthrop of the Big South Conference in the opening round game of the Big Dance.
The winner will face *gulp* No. 1-seeded Duke.
Hopefully, the Golden Lions can pull of a win against Winthrop and go on to give the Blue Devils a shock. Being a Pine Bluff native (born there but moved away when I was 6) I still identify with this raspy Delta city, and hope that this basketball team can offer a little bit of hope to the Bluff.
