NCAA regional semifinal and dueling Twitter posts

If Friday’s NCAA Tournament regional semi-final matchup was just between Baylor’s Ekpe Udoh and Saint Mary’s Omar Samhan, the big men could possibly settle it via dueling Twitter posts, but unfortunately the matchup is between the two teams.

Come Friday, the 6-11 Samhan won’t just be facing Udoh in Houston but the whole of the Baylor team as well. Whether Samhan’s fame last for 15 minutes or even 15 NBA season, it appears that he is just making the most of the moment right now.

Take the early morning Twitter post sent on Tuesday for example. Samhan posted: “Bed time. I’m trying to win a sweet 16 game and still have to be up till 2am finishing a paper for class! Gotta love the mid majors.” Then there is his take on Friday’s matchup.

While speaking about Udoh on a conference call, Samhan said “He can jump. I can’t. He’s fast and I’m not. He’s strong and I’m not.” The 6-10 Udoh – who posts under the name of The_Nightmare13 on Twitter – was also more to the point about the matchup.

“It’s going to be a tough thing. He’s a bigger guy and has a European taste to his game,” Udoh said about Samhan. Meanwhile, Samhan said that although he will have trouble guarding Udoh, he thinks that Udoh will have trouble guarding him too.
