THE COLONEL’S RECIPE: Former William Fleming standout Jamelle Hagins tallies 10 points and 16 rebounds to lead Delaware to a 59-53 victory over Virginia. “I’ve got a hit list of schools,” Hagins says, “and this was one of the big ones.”
INWARD GAZE: Logan Thomas assesses his season to date as “middle of the road,” adding “I’m not excited with how I’ve been playing or I’m not hating how I’ve been playing. Interceptions are up, but like I’ve said before, it’s because of a number of different things. They’re not all my fault. So people look at interceptions and say automatically I had a worse year. But you know, in some parts I think I’m a lot better than I was last year. Just being able to handle the entire offense, making checks, you know, being more of a part of the running game. There’s a lot of good things I’m doing well.”

WHAT ABOUT BOB? A’s skipper Bob Melvin gets the nod over Buck Showalter in a tight AL Manager of the Year vote. Can’t argue with it; he was a magician. Bummer that Buck had to go up against that. Meanwhile, Davey Johnson takes the honors in the NL. Tonight, the Cy Young Awards will be unveiled at 6 p.m. on MLB Network.
ROCKY VS. DRAGO: OK, it’s missing the Cold War undertones, and any actual significance, but the U.S. men’s soccer team plays Russia in an exhibition at 9:50 a.m. on ESPN2. The game will be played in Krasnodar. Reporter: “Why Russia?” Rocky: “That’s what I was told.”
NAME THAT TUNE
Yesterday’s was “Pillar of Davidson” by Live. Tough, I know — HokieGal got the “Pillar of” part at least. Today’s is a lot easier I think.
As he came into the window
It was the sound of

So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down
It was her doom
