We Lied: Flyers Fans in the Burgh Dress Statue in Giant Flyers Jersey


So we lied about the moratorium on jersey on statue pictures.

610 WIP's Glen Macnow and Anthony Gargano hooked up with the Flyers to have an extra large jersey sent to a WIP listener, Ryan, who goes to school in Pittsburgh.

The loyal Flyers fan, like the sneaky Pittsburgh yinzers, needed the stealth of darkness to show those pesky statues who the boss is.

The statues that were dressed up in lovely orange and black include a dinosaur at Carnegie (Museum?) Mellon University and the Pitt Panther at the University of Pittsburgh.

Kudos, Flyers fan in the Burgh. Uh, we guess.

In case you haven’t heard, the Sixers traded big man Nerlens Noel to the Dallas Mavericks before Thursday's deadline (see story).

While Noel's former teammates were saddened by the trade, including Joel Embiid, the rookie big man is already looking forward to squaring off against his friend.

The Sixers face Noel and the Mavericks on March 17 at the Wells Fargo Center.

BOX SCORE

Jackson Kent and Tom Vodanovich combined to score 31 points and James Madison held off Drexel late to secure a 70-64 victory Thursday night.

Those seeds meet in the first round, with the winner facing the No. 2 seed in the second round.

Sammy Mojica hit a 3-pointer with :32 left to get the Dragons within four, 66-62, but Shakir Brown and Joey McLean each hit a pair of free throws to seal the victory.

Kent hit 6 of 11 from the floor and tallied 16 points with eight rebounds to lead the Dukes. Vodanovich added 15 points.

Kurk Lee and Mojica both scored 18 points off the Dragons' bench.
