As always, I have to start of my editorial keeping everybody updated on how well the Los Angeles Lakers are doing right now. They stand at (46-10) which is at the moment the best record in the league. Although Andrew Bynum has been out the last 10 games, the Lakers have only lost one game without the rising superstar. To adjust to his absence, they made a major trade prior to last Thursday's trade deadline. The transaction was Vladimir Radmanovic for the Charlotte Bobcats Adam Morrison and Shannon Brown. Whether you love the Lakers or not, I will keep you updated on how their season is going because I cannot get enough of L.A.
Moving right into Bowie State basketball, this past week closed out the regular season for both squads. The men finished with a (15-12) overall, and a (11-8) CIAA record. Their home game which took place on Saturday was also senior night. This season the Bulldogs are only saying goodbye to one senior, Curtis Massey. The 6-7, 208 lbs. forward brings a well-rounded offensive attack to the game that will obviously change their game-play after he leaves. He led the team with 200 rebounds this season and was the second leading scorer with 10.1 ppg.
The Lady Bulldogs finished (17-10) overall, and a (16-4) CIAA record. Much like the men, the women's squad said farewell to only one senior in Denisha Kenion. Throughout her career her she has been known for her tough style of play, which was displayed in her stats this season. Kenion was assist leader and the third leading scorer for the Lady Bulldogs. In addition to that, she led in steals, blocked shots, and defensive rebounds. These extra effort statistics earned her the honors of the 2008-2009 CIAA Defensive Player of the Year. Her quality of play this season is what every coach expects out of their seniors on the court.
The men's indoor track & field placed second in the CIAA Championships. The team fell short to Saint Augustine's College. Distance runner Darryl Sanders won the 5000 meter run and placed second in the One Mile Run. These accomplishments earned him another as he was named Student-Athlete of the Week. All that is left in their season now is the George Mason Last Chance then NCAA Championships. After that, it is onto the outdoor season.
Bowling has not been performing as well as of late. They placed 20th in the Kutztown Invitational. It is not that they are not giving their all either, they are just running into some amazing competition. Some seasons are like that. You win some and you lose some. They have to continue to strive to mature as bowlers, and then possibly they will be back on top. However, the season is not quite over until it's over, so amazing things can still happen.
Next week, I am hoping to bring you some more updates on how well the Lakers are doing. Especially each and every single Celtic fan walking this campus; we are coming for you guys so get it together quick.
