Rebel Ties In Big Dance

If you're watching tonight's NCAA Sweet 16 games, you've noticed a familiar name in the Washington starting lineup. In the Huskies backcourt is sophomore Elston Turner, who is indeed the son of the Ole Miss great with the same name. The Turner family was the subject of a recent feature in the Seattle Times. On a side note, fellow Washington guard Isaiah Thomas is NOT the son of the NBA legend. His father, James, lost a friendly wager on a Lakers-Pistons playoff game in 1989.

In the other major postseason tourney, Ole Miss has rolled on to the NIT Final Four and will face Dayton Tuesday night. If you're an NYC Rebel or making the trip to the Big Apple, order your tickets now.
