Dupree’s classes suddenly, regularly switching locations

I wasn’t able to watch the game last night, but by most accounts it seemed to be a gutty, probably-closer-than-it-needed-to-be-but-still-a-40-minute-effort team victory, 75-70 over Michigan. True to the formula, when the Terps get balanced scoring (four guys in double figures), a win usually follows. Although let’s not make these Wolverines into Glen Rice and the Fab Five. Rumeal Robinson isn’t walking through that door.

Down toward the bottom of the Washington Post article came this little nugget:

One player who was unavailable to help out was usual starter Braxton Dupree. The sophomore center missed class on Monday and sat out last night’s game as a result.

Oh, sorry, Braxton, did you not get the memo? I swear I sent it to you.  We moved all your classes into the Food Co-Op.  Did you not think to look there?  Yo, our bad, bro.  If only we had known it would cause you to miss a game…well, we’re just beside ourselves.

A friendly classmate helps Braxton fine-tune his snooze settings.

Hats off to Gary’s lineup changes in general. It was about time Bowie got some more run, although he didn’t seem to play particularly well. Landon Milbourne(?) got the start at center and ended up not only sparking the victory, evidently, but also getting three rebounds and one block.  That’s an improvement of precisely three rebounds and one block over Dupree’s performance against Georgetown.  Huzzah!

    That makes us 2-0 vs the State of Michigan. Obviously, the state needs a basketball program bailout.

    It’s really unfortunate that Braxton Dupree is such a loser at basketball. He’s got such a great name – he just sounds like he should be good. Unfortunately, I’ve got a better hook shot than he does – and I’m 9 months pregnant.

    Hey Gary, I’ll start on Sunday for you in exchange for free baby merchandise. The fact that I can’t see my feet shouldn’t be an issue. Call me.

    If you can rebound, you’re in!

    I don’t know, “Braxton Dupree” sounds more like some sort of relative of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air than a Terps baskteball player.
