If there are two things that never fail to satiate my entertainment jones, it's "Dueling Banjos" and dueling backcourts. The MAAC provides precious little of the former, but plenty of the latter. Last night, two of the highest-scoring players in the country went at it in Jersey City, Iona's Steve Burtt Jr. (doodle-doo doo doo doo doo-doo-doo)
and two-time BOTD Keydren Clark (doodle-doo doo doo doo doo-doo-doo)
of St. Peter's.
After halftime, the homestanding Peacocks raced out to an 19-point lead with an 8-2 run (doodle-doo doo)
but Iona fought back with a mammoth 20-2 run of its own (doodle-doo doo)
to pull even, and then pluck their way to an eight-point win. "Kee Kee" had 28 but went 3-for-10 from three (doodle-doo-doo)
, but Burtt was rolling off picks and grinnin', ending with 37 points - a total that included a perfect night from the line (doodle-doo-doo doo doo, doodle doo-doo-doo)
. Take a bow, Steve.
