Meeks gets Foster-esque
So Jodie Meeks just went bananas in Knoxville, scoring 54 points in a 90-72 thrashing of the Volunteers. It reminded me of Shan Foster's 42-point performance last season against Mississippi State. Those guys were just throwing it in the ocean. Foster's game was remarkable because he hit a trey at the buzzer to send the game into overtime and then another at the buzzer to win it. Meeks put his points up in a blowout, but he did it on the road and with Bruce Pearl wearing that battery-powered orange sport coat.
Commodore fans have to feel good: Kentucky keeps getting better and better, so it wasn't so awful that we lost in Rupp without A.J. Ogilvy. Oh yeah, and the Vols got blasted.
