Basketball: President watches OSU win

By Jeff Faraudo
Saturday, November 26th, 2011 at 4:09 pm in Basketball, Pac-12 news.

President Obama — whose sister is married wife is the sister of Oregon State coach Craig Robinson — was in the house as the Beavers knocked off host Towson 66-46 on Saturday afternoon. (Pardon my brain freeze).

   – Oregon State 66, Towson 46: Devon Collier scored 15 points and Jared Cunningham and Roberto Nelson each had 12 as the Beavers (5-1) breezed to victory in front of celebrities in the crowd. Besides the President, comedian Bill Murray was on hand. Murray’s son Luke is an assistant coach at Towson.

   – USC 63, South Carolina 60: Maurice Jones scored 28 points (including 7 for 7 from the 3-point arc) and Dewayne Dedmon had a career-high 15, leading the Trojans (3-4) to victory in the Las Vegas Invitational.

   — UNC Asheville 87, Utah 65: Josh Watkins and Jason Washburn each had 21 points, but the Utes (1-5) shot 3 for 18 from 3-point range and had 16 turnovers while losing the seventh-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. Utah has lost five in a row.

    this blog is going down the toilet. who cares about the OSU and the president! he should be fixing the economy and worry about his future unemployment.

    Why is there no coverage on the Cal-ASU game? It’s only basketball. I think there’s a bias here.

    Fire Jeff Faraudo. by the way, where did you go to college?

    I’m checking this blog less and less.

    Check it as often as you like, but consider posting less until you have it figured out.

    This isn’t the football blog. See those two words at the top labeled “Basketball” and “Football”? FYI, the ASU game involved 22 players at a time and an oblong ball. Talk to Mr. Okanes about that game.

    Jeff does a great job, and I for one really appreciate reading about results from other games of teams the Bears will be playing.

    And the president showing up at a college basketball game is noteworthy, no matter what your politics. It’s not like he wrote 2,000 words on it.

    I like jf. The problem is that the football Coverage has
    Gone to hell since okanes was fired. And so, I’m sure, has the advertising revenue.

    RanDUMBear went to Cal? I often write in a rush but this guy is illiterate. Its not difficult to find both basketball and football threads on here. Cal-ASu was covered.

    I don’t have any problems with Jeff-he does a good job bringing us timely news.

    Maybe Randumbear escaped from a zoo; we shouldn’t assume cause they have bear in their name -that they actually went to Cal.

    StevenTEXASS,

    timely news? you’re the DUMB BEAR (if you really are bear). this blog only reported only on the first quarter stats of the Cal-ASU game. Where’s the timely reporting?

    you’re the illiterate one. when i said, “there’s no coverage of the Cal-ASU game.” it’s obviously a hyperbole (that’s a big word for exaggeration, which is another big word for…never mind. why bother).
