It’s one thing to have a new pro basketball team in town. It’s quite another to know that if the Kentucky Mavericks win tonight (I am writing this on Friday morning 1/29) we at the Sportscenter Sunday afternoon may witness the team’s 100th consecutive win.
Think about that — 100 games in a row, 100 wins. There is no equal to that anywhere in pro sports I know of, with the possible exception of the Harlem Globetrotters — and that’s an exhibition, not a real competitive game environment. Hats off to Coach Tucker, the whole team, Mr. Reynolds and the entire staff for giving Owensboro so much more than just a ball team.
Do yourself a favor. Be at the Sportscenter Sunday at 4. Witness history.
