This blog undertook an unusual endeavor the other day, attempting to name as many Division I hoops teams as possible, placed in the right conference, during the course of the UWM-Detroit game, while tracking passes for both teams. This blog doesn't think it did too badly.

It's a fun way to pass time if you get a chance. This blog has a long-term goal to get all teams named and placed correctly by the time it's sitting at halftime of the Atlantic 10 conference championship game on March 10th. Pun City will let you know how it goes. Hopefully this blog can avoid slacking and will add another post tomorrow, most likely on the pass tracking. Could be on anything though, you never know!
