Pete Campbell is something serious

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- We're off to a good start today.
Western Kentucky beat Drake 101-99 in overtime while Davidson edged Gonzaga 82-76.
So two of the four early games were fabulous, just great competitions highlighted by Stephen Curry's 40-point effort that gave Davidson its first win over a Top 100 opponent since 2005. When it happened it seemed unlikely anybody would trump Curry for Player of the Day honors. But now I'm sitting here at the BJCC Arena, and I swear I don't think Pete Campbell is ever going to miss another shot.
There's still eight minutes left in Butler's soon-to-be-final victory over South Alabama, and Campbell already has eight 3-pointers. He made six in the first half to push the Bulldogs to a huge lead, and the Tennessee staff sitting courtside is hoping the senior gets all of this out of his system before they have to deal with him on Sunday.
