In a word, blech.

As in, anyone at Comcast Center should really ask for a partial refund for being subjected to the first half today.


Astonishingly, both teams are extremely fortunate.

Maryland, because despite its absolute unwillingness to even try to go inside coupled with horrendous outside shooting, is only trailing by five.

Georgia Tech, because despite 18 turnovers in the first half, is somehow winning.

Like I said, refunds for all are in order.

Unfortunately, there’s another 20 minutes to come (and possibly, heaven forbid, overtime). Maybe it’ll look like the Bill Russell Celtics against the Michael Jordan Bulls. But I’d bet everything I own on the opposite.
