An #AugBballFlashback - Why I call Augusta's Sherrill "Superman"

As Chris Gay points out in Saturday's Augusta Chronicle, Augusta University needs one win in its remaining two games to host the Peach Belt Conference tournament quarterfinals. The first chance is today at Lander (3:30 tip-off; for broadcast and live stats).

Coach Dip Metress earned his 400th win and clinched his 18th consecutive winning season (dating back to his Belmont Abbey beginning) Wednesday at Francis Marion when Richmond Academy graduate Tommy Williams scored a season high 29 points.

Junior All American Keshun Sherrill earned the "Superman" nick name I gave him during last season's game at Lander. The scoring machine (2nd in PBC, 11th in NCAA Division II) scored 25 points in the game's final 25 minutes; he made the game tying 3 point play on a coast-to-coast drive just before regulation ended; and his Jaguars proceeded to go on a winning binge that landed Augusta a regular season Peach Belt east title.

Here is a link to my report from that memorable road game:
