Gatens Delivers, Meeks' Manners, Bad Service

Good Iowa showed up Sunday night. The Hawks dominated #18 Indiana. Make it three wins over top 20 teams...

Matt Gatens played for some bad Iowa teams, and he's likely leaving with no post-season appearances, but Gatens is underrated. He scored 30 against Indiana---seven threes---and it perplexes me when Hawk fans say the only player they're losing next year is Gatens, like he's easily replaceable. He's not...

Melsahn Basabe is a microcosm of Iowa's season. When he shows up and plays hard, he's really good. When he doesn't, he looks bad. Same for the team...

Royce White leads Iowa State in nearly every statistical category, but he was mostly quiet Saturday, and the Cyclones still had no problem with Oklahoma. Good sign...

Melvin Ejim has to be smarter than he was Saturday...

I watched my first start-to-finish Jeremy Lin game when the Knicks hosted the Mavericks. He was good, and the game was fun...

Roosevelt's John Meeks sat in the Cave with B-Ross on SoundOFF. Meeks is being congratulated far and wide for his four state titles and undefeated career (168-0), and he should be. It's a staggering accomplishment. However, after watching him wrestle several times and witnessing his sportsmanship, then seeing him at the television station and observing his manners, his parents deserve props too. They did a great job...

More calls and emails on girls wrestling. It's obvious many people still don't like the idea...

One of life's frustrations: seeing several empty tables at a restaurant, but waiting 15 minutes before being seated...

I saw "Safe House". Intense, exciting, violent. Denzel Washington is at his charismatic best, and Ryan Reynolds ups his game. Recommended for action fans...

Did I mention violent?
