JENA JANOVY was just on Raleigh sportstalk 1090am. That was the first time I have heard here on the radio. She was impressive. She had all the right answers to the questions defending the Niners on Raleigh radio. She definitley has made this season more entertaining.

Boston Globe

Nothing finer for 49ers

Syracuse regional teams at a glance.

Boston Herald

Not much from the Herald, other than some shoddy reporting…

[b]Wake Forest was the preseason No. 2 team and it beat N.C. State twice in the regular season. But the Wolfpack crushed the Demon Deacons in the ACC tournament and will face Charlotte in the early game today.[/b]

BTW, the Worcester newspaper’s online edition is a pay site, so we’ll be skipping them as a source of news… :angry:

The one theme that comes across in reading all this stuff, which, for the most part, is very good – USE A COPY EDITOR TO CATCH YOUR MISTAKES, SPORTSWRITERS!!!

Great piece on Eddie…

Boston Glode: 49er Basden struck gold with choice of Charlotte


[b]The Wolfpack will go at Charlotte today in its Princeton-like manner, numbing opponents -- and fans -- with their methodical, back-cutting, sleep-inducing ways.[/b]
- Tom Sorensen, Charlotte Observer :lol:

That’s pretty funny and way too true.

Another one from

Charlotte vs. North Carolina State

[b]Charlotte, with the longest losing streak of any team in the NCAA tournament, takes on North Carolina State in the first round of the Syracuse Regional.[/b]

BTW, read where NC State is 1-4 in tourney as a double-digit seed.
