The All-Name Team

I don't follow college hoops that closely, but it sounds like Syracuse's first-round Big East tournament match-up was a pretty exciting game. Gerry McNamara hit a three with half a second left to lead the Orange to a one-point victory over Cincinnati. I feel a little sorry for Cincinnati losing a heartbreaker like that, but I really feel sorry for Cincinnati's Jihad Muhammad. Not only did he get burned by McNamara on the game-winning basket, but his name is Jihad Muhammad. I can't think of too many names that would arouse more suspicion in this day and age than his. The only thing more surprising than McNamara's buzzer-beater was the fact that Muhammad was allowed to board an airplane to come to Big East tournament.
