The Knicks went to Boston hoping to prove themselves ... again. Jeremy Lin played his college ball not far from TD Garden, but he (and the Knicks) got Rondo'd. To the tune of 18 points, 20 assists, and 17 rebounds. You know the only other two players in NBA history to record a triple-double of at least 15-15-15?
Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain.
Oh, and Paul Pierce dumped in 34 to help support Rondo. Lin had a decent fourth quarter but wound up with more TO's than assists (6:5).
On to something I know a little bit about - college baseball.
I'll start with the little known New Jersey Tech Highlanders. At 4-2, my man Mike Cole has these guys headed in the right direction. Two games over .500 is uncharted waters for the program, but knowing Mike, these guys will stay hungry and keep scrapping. They've got three very good weekend arms and a lineup that can do some things. The return of OF'er James D'Aloia, who missed 2011 with a freak accident prior to the first game, will certainly help their chances. Dude is hitting .500 with two bolts, two doubles, and 11 RBI through the first 6 games.
They beat down the Hornets of Delaware State on getaway day 18-4 and 4-2, thanks to 23 hits in the first game and a last-inning grand slam in the second.
They head down to Carolina this weekend to take on the Blue Hose of Presbyterian in a three-game set before capping the trip to Wake Forest for a single game.
Keep an eye on the boys in red down in Newark.
