Indies and Insanity: February 13, 2020

Tomorrow, I’ll look at Night Two of the 2018 JT Lightning Invitational.  Which of the remaining 12 guys takes home the trophy, and will the trophy survive the show?

Sports dial: Just one NBA game on TNT tonight, as the Clippers and Celtics meet just before the All-Star Break.  The NHL has their game on NBCSN, as it’s Flyers/Panthers.  But College hoops is where it’s at!  ESPN is running Memphis/Cincinnati, then Colorado/Oregon (warning: Bill Walton AND Mark Jackson on color).  ESPN2 has Wichita State/Central Florida, then Washington/USC, then Arizona State/Stanford.  ESPNU gives us the deep cuts: Winthrop/Gardner-Webb, Murray State/Austin Peay, and BYU/Loyola Marymount.  CBSSN is finishing up Bryant/Sacred Heart as this goes live, and following that will be Charleston/Hofstra and Marshall/UTSA.  Plus, FS1 will have Arizona/Cal after their coverage from Daytona is up!

And now, after the break, your indie report!

Another quiet weekend here, but the good stuff is very good.
