Three-point Clinic Keeps 880 Waiting

We drove back to Lubbock today so that I could watch the Red Raiders take on UNLV.

Instead of elevating coach Knight to sole possession of most NCAA basketball wins, the Runnin' Rebels put on a three point clinic.

Coach Bob Knight takes the floor before the game in search of win No. 880.

Big names were on hand. Here Dick Vitale calls the game for ESPN2.

Former UNLV coach Jerry Tarkanian was on hand. "Tark the Shark" won an NCAA national title in Vegas in 1990.

The final score was disappointing. However, the night was one not to be forgotten. The sold-out United Spirit Arena was rocking. It was the first time the arena reminded me of Assembly Hall in Bloomington.

We'll try again for win 880 on New Year's Day.
