In tonight's Ohio Valley
lidlifter for both teams, we get a showdown of the two teams picked to contend for the league title - the defending champ and the traditional power (respectively). Eastern's struggled to a 2-4 record in the post-Travis Ford era
, and Murray's 2-2 mark doesn't show that they took Cincinnati to overtime
or led Tennessee
for 30 minutes. Instead of pointing out stat-sheet stuffers as usual, I'd like to draw your attention to an EKU guard named Bubba Long
, who is the 7th least effective player in D1 - of 4,115 - for the amount of time he spends on the court (the ones below him are mostly burly foul-sponges). His 0.0 points and 1.5 assists in nearly 10 minutes may seem like pure garbage time, but is there any statistic that can adequately measure the length of a Bubba? Does he at least have a fan club?
