With college basketball season winding down I figured it was time for another installment of Twitter Storm, where I find interesting/relevant tweets and then add My 2 Sense to them.
NEWS RELEASE: Corey Sanders to Enter Draft; Won’t Sign with Agent https://t.co/6Oady4WCli

For a second consecutive season Rutgers best player, Corey Sanders, has announced his intentions to enter the NBA Draft. Again, he said he will not sign with an agent, which would end his collegiate career. Unfortunately, getting to the League is all many “student athletes” think about from the minute they arrive on campus. I like Corey Sanders very much, he is clearly the Scarlet Knights best player, but that does not an NBA player make. He has two years left, he should use them both and then see where he stands.
Another day, another honor for @angelluis45, who was named first-team @ECACSports All-Star! #HALLin pic.twitter.com/HJGgDppDI8

Seton Hall’s season may be done, but Angel Delgado continues to corral stuff. This week it was not points and rebounds, but accolades. The Pirates star junior was chosen to the all ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Association) first-team. Well done Angel. Now SHU fans wait for him to decide a question that The Clash made famous back in the mid 80’s: “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” (to the NBA)?

What more can you say about the season that the Princeton Tigers had this year? They ran the table in the Ivy League, going 14-0, and then won the first ever postseason tournament the league has ever had. Picked as a #12 seed by the selection committee, the Tigers drew the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in the first round, and put a major scare in them. About the only thing you could question about the nail biter of a game was that down only two points on their final possession, Devin Cannaday pulled up for a three pointer (wide open as it was). He went for the win instead of going to the basket where maybe he could draw other defenders, dish to an open teammate, or even get fouled. Hindsight as they say in 20/20 right? All in all, it was a super season and head coach Mitch Henderson is quite worthy of this Coach of the Year Award.
