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.

Foster was great. He made shots that made the magic bullet theory seem plausible. However, no one's done what Jodie Meeks did last night for 20 years. Nuts.
