Detroit Sports and stuff

My ranting of sports, life, and whatever I feel like...but mostly sports. Now in the un-daily variety.

2 out of 3 ain't bad

Last night wasn't a great night to host sporting events in Michigan, but 'the show must go on'.

The Pistons were able to take a step in the right direction, taking care of the Washington Wizards 100-91. Rebounding still seems to be a problem, as we gave up 12 more offensive rebounds, but we got 16 of our own, and turned the ball over 7 less times, to help our cause. Rip Hamilton had 27 for the 'Stones, and Rasheed Wallace and Tayshaun Prince both poured in 20 points to lead the way for us. The 4-5 'Stones will welcome the 6-3 Houston Rockets tonight at the Palace, and we will probably need to play our best game of the season to come away with the victory.

As expected the Michigan Men's Basketball team took care of Harvard last night, 82-50. F Ron Coleman led 5 Wolverines with 20 points, and C Courtney Sims added 12 for the 5-0 Wolverines. Freshman C Ekpe Udoh had 11 points off the bench, including 5-5 from the field, and G Lester Abram and G Dion Harris each added 10. The Wolverines get a nice 4-day break before taking on another huge collegiate powerhouse, Youngstown St. Should be a barn burner.

And finally, the win streak is over for the Red Wings, who fell to the Calgary Flames 4-1 last night. Calgary tallied 3 times on the power play, which still seems to be the Wings' shortcoming this season. Daniel Cleary netted a powerplay goal of his own with 41 seconds remaining in the game. Here's hoping a new win streak starts tonight against the Edmonton Oilers.

That's the news! Arsenal, U-M football, Wings, 'Stones tonight, Lions tomorrow.
