Blake Griffin’s Productive First Half
I could change the word “productive” to “Alley-oop-filled” and the point would probably get across a little better. During the first half OU’s and Griffin’s destruction of Morgan State (The Player of the Year currently has 28 and 14), the OU forward had a number of alley-oop finishes, effectively demonstrating his incredible athleticism and control. The initial catch-and-layup is something to see, especially for a player of Griffin’s stature.
Perhaps the reports of OU’s demise — due to the lingering effects of Griffin’s concussion — are perhaps a little premature. The Sooners look strong tonight where some other high seeds have struggled. Is it a stretch to say the upcoming number one overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft might have something to do with that?
