He has established himself as a reliable jump shooter. NCAA Basketball Players of the Year 2014 by Sports Genius

Russ increased his 3-point percentage from 32.8% (mediocre) to 40.5% (awesome) and his overall percentage from 41.4% (average) to 47.5% (again, awesome). Personally, I’m comfortable with Russ taking any shot on the floor now, although the increase is due in part to better shot selection

As the only starter remaining from Louisville’s national championship team from one year ago, Russ Smith has had a lot on his shoulders this year. NCAA Basketball Players of the Year 2014 by Sports Genius

The key word here is remaining: Chane Behanan, another starter returning from last year’s team, was dismissed from the team early in the season

Regardless, Russ has done a very good job leading this team onward successfully, despite them getting straight disrespected with a 4 seed in the tournament

4. Louisville 2014 Tournament Top Seeds by NCAA Basketball Men Div I

WHAT?!?!

The defending National Champions put together a 29-5 season (same as last year’s #1 overall seed team!), ending the season with five straight double-digit wins (three over ranked teams) and coasting to the American Conference championship.

The team has zero losses outside of the top 50, with its worst losses being at Kentucky (Rupp is one of the hardest places in the world to play in & they just played the top overall seed to the buzzer) and at home against a solid Memphis team.

Ken Pomeroy has Louisville at #2 overall, BPI has them at #4 overall, every poll had them at #5 overall before two teams ahead of them lost (meaning they’ll probably be higher overall in polls than their seed next week), and actually watching them on the floor — most valuable of all — shows that this team is every bit as good as, if not better, than last year’s championship team.

So why so low?

It’s gotta be strength of schedule. Despite Louisville’s six top 50 wins — four away from home — their strength of schedule was still 80th. Which justifies then not being a 1 seed, sure, but 4? Come on. That’s just disrespectful.

My brain pours water out my tear ducts to heal me ­better in tune w the infinite by Jay Electronica (Ft. LaTonya Givens)

Jay’s not ashamed at all of his tears, and he asserts here that they are actually therapeutic. Many studies on tears would actually agree with Jay Man that tears have a certain healing power

I pause, take a step back, record all the setbacks ­better in tune w the infinite by Jay Electronica (Ft. LaTonya Givens)

Jay played the back, faded to black, and devised a plan. He takes his time and uses music as therapy, recording some very intimate tracks

This line also shows that (at least this part of) the song was written at least 3 years ago. Or perhaps he just decided to use the line now.

this seems to be a line from an old Jay Electronica song. can anyone tell me what it is? thanks

Add a suggestion

The church you go to pray in it, the work is on the outside
Staring out the windows is for love songs and house flies
­better in tune w the infinite by Jay Electronica (Ft. LaTonya Givens)

Faith without works is dead.

James 2:14-16

You can’t just go to church and be fully saved — although church attendance and worship is part of the equation. Your faith also has to extend beyond the borders of the church and touch lives for it to be fully redeemed. Otherwise, you’re no better than a love song or a fly on the wall

They might defeat the flesh but they could never ever kill me ­better in tune w the infinite by Jay Electronica (Ft. LaTonya Givens)

Jay’s Life goes beyond just this flesh, just this world. As Jesus says in Matthew 10:28:

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

So regardless of if he dies on this earth, his soul will never truly die — and no human being can take that away from him

Jesus most famously embodied this doctrine, dying on the cross in the physical form and raising in the spiritual three days later

Phoenix is the most surprising team in the League. Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe are two huge reasons why. 2013-14 NBA Performance Analysis by Sports Genius (Ft. Draft_Jam97) 3

RISE OF THE PHOENIX

On the graph, Phoenix is cemented further along the x-axis (“Win Percentage Adjusted”) than any other team in the NBA. This is thanks in large part to the fact that they have already won 14 more games than they were projected to for the whole season — and there are still 19 games left!!

The offseason acquisition of Eric Bledsoe got the ball rolling on Phoenix’s surprising season, but when he went down the outlook turned dim once again in Phoenix.

Yet, somehow, the scrappy play of an all-star snub and the discovery of a few key ballers has elevated the Suns to heights they haven’t seen since Nash left town, and it’s only looking up from here for the young group.

You ain't eating then you starve Steps by Big KRIT (Ft. Big Sant & Smoke DZA)

If you don’t work hard for what you want, then you see any returns; it’s as simple as that.
