Centennial's Streak Ends at 14 and A Big Shout Out to Bill Self

We all need to give a big shout out to our dear friend Bill Self. The Kansas coach has admitted to having a verbal exchange with John Wall last week after Word of God's first round game of the Tournament of Champions in Springfield, Missouri, last Thursday night. While it doesn't seem that there was much of an exchange, it did take place during an evaluation period last week when coaches were not allowed to contact prospects beyond exchanging greetings. Self apparently greeted Wall and then went on to compliment him on his performance. The NCAA now has to decide if this exchange qualifies as a "contact." While we have nothing personal against Mr. Self or the Kansas program, we do covet the #1 player in the country and appreciate the coach's assistance in possibly eliminating one of the teams from the mix.

Centennial hadn't lost since November 29th, 2008, and since then had put together a vicious 14 game winning streak. Yesterday the streak came to an end. I'm sure the Knights would have preferred that the streak end under better conditions considering the fact that they lost on their own court while hosting an all-day Holiday Classic. Miller Grove (15-2), who is no slouch, beat Centennial 88-66. Lorenzo did his usual by putting in 23 points. Centennial is now 14-2 on the year.
