Joey Dorsey Wants Him Some Greg Oden

Wow wow wow. The Memphis-Ohio State regional semifinal got a little juicier a few minutes ago, when West Baltimore's own Joey Dorsey, Memphis' 6-9 junior center, pretty much called out Greg Oden. A sample:

"It's going to be David and Goliath," Dorsey said. "I'm Goliath. He's the little man. I'm going to outwork him to every ball. I think I'm going to have like a 20 rebound night. Coach Cal said this is going to be my breakout game."

Dorsey went on to predict he would score 15 points and grab 20 rebounds, while holding Oden to nine and five. It should be noted he did all his boasting in a light-hearted, good-natured way. Funny, articulate guy, that Dorsey. We'll have more in tomorrow's birdcage liner on this, plus Memphis' generally swash-buckling attitude, led by John Calipari.

Unbelievable. Buckeyes win 92-76, and "Goliath" has 0 points, 3 rebs., and 4 fouls. I think Mr. Dorsey should review his biblical history -- the real Goliath ran his mouth before a match and had comparable results. Better luck next time.

What an arrogant dufus? Most Dorseys do not fair well against Ohio State!! Just ask Ken!! Only Ken showed up and played well against the Buckeyes. Joey just sucks!! Do they have a class at Memphis for building success?? Joey sure could use it -- 0 points, 4 fouls, last 8 minutes on the bench and let's not forget his (-17) rebound performance vs his 20 rebound prediction. What a joke??!!!

Be careful what you wish for.
