  3. Tommy Lloyd:

    I think we really built some foundational pieces this year that are really going to serve us well moving forward. Extremely proud of the guys. Extremely proud of the coaching staff, we ran into a really good team tonight that was just a little bit too much for us. Houston stretched its lead to 10 points three different times before halftime. The Wildcats missed seven of their first eight shots, and trailed by double digits for the first time after Houston scored seven points in a 57-second span for a 14-4 lead. That quick spurt included Shead getting a rebound to start a fastbreak that ended with his pass to Ramon Walker Jr. in the left corner for an open 3, and a driving layup by Edwards after a turnover. Taze Moore, a graduate transfer, had a career-high 21 points in Houston’s second-round win over Illinois, but Taze Moore early 3 to make it 5-0 Houston in the first two minutes was all Taze Moore ’d score against The Wildcats. Taze Moore committed Taze Moore third personal foul with 9:22 left and played only 17 minutes overall.

    If alcohol is queen, then tobacco is her consort. It's a fond companion for all occasions, a loyal friend through fair weather and foul. People smoke to celebrate a happy moment, or to hide a bitter regret. Whether you're alone or with friends, it's a joy for all the senses. What lovelier sight is there than that double row of white cigarettes, lined up like soldiers on parade and wrapped in silver paper? I love to touch the pack in my pocket, open it, savor the feel of the cigarette between my fingers, the paper on my lips, the taste of tobacco on my tongue. I love to watch the flame spurt up, love to watch it come closer and closer, filling me with its warmth.
