Looked to me like DeSanto was very close to a takedown as time expired and would have had it with a few more seconds. Do you folks who are knowledgeable about wrestling agree with that take?
Wow the scramble at the end of Young's match!
Go Snowpork Awesome! Thanks for the PBP yesterday.
That was an interesting pin for Marinelli.

DeSanto doing DeSanto things
And there's the pin after 54 seconds, about half of which were Cronin on his back desperately (and ultimately unsuccessfully) trying to avoid the pin.
Spencer Lee coming up on Mat 1. Don't blink or you'll miss it.
Looks like Teasdale has moved to Mat 8.
Gavin Teasdale is up on Mat 9
I have a typo in Table 4, those should read "O Diff" and "D Diff" instead of "O PPP" and "D PPP".
I wonder if we were the first people to get a good look at him post-growth spurt?
Well . . . I make my own BBQ so I have no need for Phil's. :)
Never heard of Dumpling Inn and Shanghai Saloon. I'll have to check that place out.
I hope that these people expressed their feelings to Hayden while he was still with us.
I hope that Fry realized what a legendary man he was.
The weather forecast is currently predicting rain for next week. :( So, yeah, bring rain gear.
+1000 for those beach towns in North County.
There is now a charitable auction for those shoes:
Also true! :) He is also a flat out tough SOB. I was still living in the Bay Area when Golden State drafted Draymond Green. At that time he wasn't a highly regarded draft prospect and most of my GSW friends didn't know much about him. I remember telling those guys "this guy is going to give your team something that it currently lacks". Garza is the sort of person you don't want to bet against.
Over his last two years of high school, Connor was more or less a 40% shooter from 3 point range while attempting 4-5 shots per game. Those numbers are from memory and I don't have time to find the exact numbers but I looked this up over the summer and was surprised to see how effective Connor was as an outside shooter in high school. Made me wonder if he's a bit better than he showed last season. He's also a good FT shooter and FT shooting correlates with 3PT shooting to some degree.
Garza's raw athleticism is nowhere close to where Leonard's was at this point in their careers.
The reason I brought up Jokic was just to point to an example of a successful NBA big man who doesn't have absolutely bonkers athleticism. Not trying to say that Garza is that good right now.
Garza is tall enough to play center in the NBA. He's strong and will continue to get stronger. He has a great motor. He has good shooting touch and pretty good range. He has moves and craftiness around the rim. Another thing about Garza is that, even though he is certainly heavy footed, his agility and overall athleticism has improved quite a bit from last year, at least to my eye.
All the points about NBA being insane from a skills/athleticism perspective are well taken. I am personally quite skeptical of him as an NBA player.
The guy that makes me wonder about Garza as an NBA player is Nikola Jokic.
