Christmas pulls off the upset

Dionte Christmas knocks out Stephen Curry in the Fantasy HORSE Invitational.

Christmas pulls off the upset


During the Temple-Xavier live blog, I noted that I wasn't casting a vote in the Dionte Christmas-Stephen Curry showdown.

But I'm not at all surprised that Christmas got the win, even though it was a narrow one. He was the hometown player and the underdog, and I figured that would get him votes.

So Christmas moves on to face Chicago State's David Holston in the first semifinal, for which voting will start after the Syracuse-Villanova game.

That doesn't give you too much time to cast a ballot in our final first-round matchup, which features Central Florida's Jermaine Taylor and Virginia Commonwealth's Eric Maynor. But since I'll be live-blogging from the Wachovia Center tomorrow I figure this contest will get plenty of attention.

I'm going to keep this post short because it's a Friday night and I should really have more to do in life than blog. So let's get this matchup underway, and I'll talk to you all again at noon tomorrow.

4. Jermaine Taylor, Central Florida
5. Eric Maynor, Virginia Commonwealth
