Tuesday night hoops…

LA Lakers survive the Brooklyn Nets, 92 – 83 and bring their record to 3 -1 in the middle of the “Grammy” seven game road trip they are on.  Kobe had a huge dunk and the Lakers went on a 10 -1 run in the fourth period to take the lead and never trailed again.  Bad news, Pau Gasol inured his right foot/ankle in the last period and went to the locker room and did not return.  LA cannot afford to have both Gasol and Howard out.  Hope Gasol’s injury is minor and he will ready to go for next road game (at the Garden vs. Boston).

In College Basketball, 2 Florida gets hammered by Arkansas, 80 – 69.  Rankings mean nothing when you play on the road in the world of college basketball!  It is tough to win on the road.  Just ask 3 Michigan (#1 last week before loss to now 1 Indiana at Assembly Hall).  They currently trail 10 Ohio State 34 – 35 early in the second period in Ann Arbor.  Still more playing time to go in that one…Michigan prevails 76 – 74 in a wild and frantic finish (OT).  Important win for them in Big Ten.

On the rise, the surprising #8 Miami Hurricanes easily handled Boston College at home, 72 – 50.
