  • USC in NYC: Giddy at The Garden

    Sharicka Thornwell and her son Tae boarded a flight out of Charlotte on Thursday, headed to the Mecca of college basketball – New York’s Madison Square Garden.
    She has been itching to get on that plane all week, since her son Sindarius Thornwell led the University of South Carolina past the Duke Blue Devils and into the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.
    “This is exciting!” she said. “I want them to win. If they keep playing like they have been playing, they can go all the way.”

  • Sports Talk: Recalling Marquette...

    Late Sunday afternoon when I saw Marquette pop up as South Carolina’s first-round foe in the NCAA men’s tournament, I had a flashback to my younger days.

    Seems like it was my junior high days at North Junior High School, now North Elementary School. Yep, many moons ago and I’m telling my age.

    I recall hearing about Marquette at school, but we’re talking history not hoops.
