I'm lucky enough to have one of those jobs that doesn't require that much actual work. If I engage in work related activity for 90 minutes in any given day, that's a lot. The result is that I have a lot of free time, most of which is spent tooling around the Internet and hoping I don't get fired for it. Today this means that I was perusing the SU basketball records books and came across some interesting tidbits. Enjoy.
