Random SEC basketball stuff

1) LSU is playing in the 2007 Maui Invitational to be played November 19-21. Their first opponent is Oklahoma State and it will be on TV (all the games in this tournament are).

2007 Maui Invitational Schedule

Nov. 19
Game 1: 1:30 p.m. - Marquette vs. Chaminade
Game 2: 4 p.m. - LSU vs. Oklahoma St.
Game 3: 8 p.m. - Princeton vs. Duke
Game 4: 10:30 p.m. - Arizona St. vs. Illinois

Game 8: 8:30 p.m. - Winner Game 3 vs. Winner Game 4

Nov. 21
Game 9: 1 p.m. - Winner Game 5 vs. Winner Game 6
Game 10: 3:30 p.m. - Loser Game 7 vs. Loser Game 8
Game 11: 6 p.m. - Loser Game 5 vs. Loser Game 6
Game 12: 9 p.m. - Winner Game 7 vs. Winner Game 8

Duke and Marquette should be the best teams there... although Illinois might give the Dukies a game.

2) Georgia is also going to Hawai'i, except they get stuck in Honolulu for the Rainbow Classic.

Here's the pairings for the tournament. I admit I know nothing about Hawai'i basketball so I'm going to say UGA is probably the favorite (as St John's is still rebuilding).

3) Ex-Kentucky player Randolph Morris pleads not guilty to driving like a madman (reckless driving). You remember Morris from his early declaration to the NBA and his magical reinstatement thanks to a "found" fax on Tubby Smith's desk some 6 months later. Anyways, nothing too serious here, but it's the slow season.
