Tharon and Xavier Rathan Mayes

Hooping Like Their Daddies
It turned out to be a good thing that Xavier Rathan-Mayes returned to Florida State this season after withdrawing his name from the early-entry list for the NBA Draft in May. In a win against Wake Forest on Dec. 28, the junior guard became the 46th FSU player to reach 1,000 career points. Doesn’t sound like too much of big deal, right? His father, Tharon Mayes is 20th in all-time scoring at FSU with 1,260 career points (Tharon played for FSU from 1986-1990 with two NCAA Tournament appearances). That’s cool too, but still, is that really worth a mention? Well, yes, because it’s a first for the ACC.

The Los Angeles Clippers have historically been one of basketball’s bottom tier teams. From their inception in 1970 as the Buffalo Braves, to their days in San Diego where they received their current name, coming from the sailboats that populated the city’s waters, to now as residents in the City of Angels, they haven’t found the success in 46 years that other teams achieve almost every year. They have been through their growing pains and it has been looking up for the team recently, making the playoffs each of the last 5 years and finally generating widespread support and excitement. Their window for a championship is in front of them, but it may be closing just as quickly as it opened.
