June 30th, 2022 - Clark conquers all!
In the Battle of the Cougars, the Clark Cougars squeaked out a 2-point win versus the Sioux Falls Cougars. Sioux Falls had a four-point lead at half-time, but Clark continued to play well despite center Willard Baron and guard Pharaoh Hogue fouling out. Vincent Moran and Adrian D`Angelo came off the bench for Clark to both score 19 and they had a small lead by with 10 minutes left. But that would not hold, with 1:07 left, Khalil Murphy’s basket gave Sioux Falls a 100-99 lead. Would Clark respond? Yes they would -- Aiden Vickers drops a three to give Clark the lead with 35 seconds left! Now it was Sioux Falls chance, but a three from Kurt Butler fell short and the Clark Cougars were national champions! The Player of the Game was Rodger Hammons with 27 points, 6 3-pointers and 7 assists. Congratulations to Mainecougar and the Clark Cougars on their national championship! Also, congratulations to penelopesweetp and the Butler Bulldogs (Division II tournament winners) and to boltsman and the Simon Fraser Clan (Division III tournament winners).

July 1st, 2022 - The second 180+ star and NBA level talent to go undrafted and disregarded by the NBA - Florida Intl Panthers
At this point, the draft doesn’t make any sense and it’s actually ridiculous that I’ve had multiple 6’3-6’5 point guards with at least 183 skill, but went unselected.
