Tonight’s Sonics’ score is not a misprint. They lost to Denver 168-116. Only one other team has given up that many points in a regulation game since 1962. At least Northwest hoops fans can still root for Wazzu, a 4-seed in the NCAA Tournament, Gonzaga (7 seed), Oregon (9 seed), or Portland St (a 16 seed playing Kansas). Both Wazzu and Gonzaga play Charlotte area teams, Winthrop and Davidson. Unfortunately, Gonzaga has to play Davidson in Raleigh. Wazzu plays in Denver. The fun starts Thursday.
Between a Monday St. Patrick’s Day and the first round of March Madness, this will be the most unproductive work week in our nation’s history.
