With just one month to go before the NCAA Tournament's "Selection Sunday," Bracketography (one of Drive and Dish's favorite websites) breaks down the teams on the proverbial NCAA "bubble."
Welcome to Drive and Dish. This blog is about basketball, with an emphasis on the college game. The name Drive and Dish refers to a basketball move in which the player with the ball drives to the basket, draws defenders, and finds (dishes the ball to) an open offensive player for an easy shot-and, presumably, easy basket. The drive and dish is one of the most beautiful things in sports. It seamlessly combines individual skill and teamwork.
The game of basketball is all about individual skill and teamwork. Offenses use ball movement to catch defenders off guard in order to get good shots. Defensively, teams get in your face, hoping to force opponents into bad decision making and turnovers. The game is fast-paced and hard-nosed. Every possession counts.
Drive & Dish covers it all: from tip-off 'til the nets get cut down. And, as our name implies, we take it strong to the goal and dish (commentary) with flair.
