spiders keep being awesome

Justin Harper dunks.
richmond has just made it to the sweet 16 for the second time ever as a 12 seed or lower.  they are the only school in the history of the tournament to win games as a 12, 13, 14, and 15 seed.  they have also now won 8 tournament games all time as a 12 seed or lower, the most of any school in the country.  and their current 9 game win streak is the school's longest in 20 years.  my favorite stat for this team right now is that in two games they have 32 assists and just 8 turnovers.

here's a couple of random notes from my post-work 4 am dvr viewing of the game:
1. leslie visser should NOT be on television anymore.
2. watching the tnt "inside the nba" crew of greg anthony, kenny the jet smith, and sir charles barkley talk about my little baby spiders on the halftime show is absolutely surreal.

oh, and the last time richmond played kansas was in 2004, i remember watching the game at my all time favorite sports bar, aussies bar and grill in austin, tx.  the final score was spiders 69, jayhawks 68.
