Crosstown Shootout Countdown. #1

In case you missed it, here are 5-2. Tyrone HillDavid WestGary LumpkinKevin Frey/Justin Doellman

Forever and ever and ever this will be my most hated Xavier player. I remember being driven home from basketball practice* and listening to the last few minutes of this game on the radio before racing into my house with about a minute left to see the end of this game.
*Fuck you Chris Post for having basketball practice the same night as the Shootout. Nothing was more important to 8th grade Scott. Besides trying to get Jessie Stark to like me, nothing dominated my life like UC basketball.
As you settle in tonight to watch the game on ESPNU, they will probably show the highlight. Along with Nick Van Exel throwing in a half court shot in 92 as Thom Brennaman yelled "it's good if it goes!!!", this memory will live forever in my mind. This is the reason to hate Xavier. Xavier fans have never let this go. But, there's nothing we can do about it. Charles Williams will always dribble the ball off his foot. Lenny fucking Brown will always score over Rod Monroe. The score will forever be 71-69. Thanks for ruining my childhood. Dick. Beat Xavier
