ESPN reports that Raivio threw up in the 2nd half (when? he was on the floor the whole game), but said he didn't think it was something he ate. Just nerves or a relapse of the flu? Anyone have any idea?

Must have been during at TV timeout or something. I heard the same thing on ESPNews.

Probably had something to do w/ playing 37 minutes and 40 minutes dirung the 2 games - and easily running more than any other player on the court both nights...

In a SportingNews.com recap of the game (http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=184547):

"Raivio, named the co-player of the year in the WCC and the tournament MVP, got sick and threw up in the second half, but said he didn't have the flu and he didn't think it was something he ate. "

Maybe he was on track for 40 pts. There was a span there where he looked rather "out of it." If I recall correctly though, he scored 14 in each half so it must not have slowed him down that badly.

When Grier was getting interviewed by Tom Hudson after the game, he mentioned that before his last two free throws, he was throwing up during the time out. Playing all 40 minutes and after throwing up, that guy had to be totally empty/drained after the game. No quit in any of these guys. Gotta love the toughness.

If I had a guess, I would attribute DR's illness to post flu dehydration.

We do have physicians who frequent the board, so I'll defer to them.

Being a physician myself, I can properly diagnose DRav's symptom's simply being a vomitous reaction to the disgusting hair styles sported by the Broncos.

Bryant -- He really does look like a stuffed dog
Parasite -- WHAT IS THAT HAIRDO!!!!! And no, even though the announcers said so, you are not quite as good as Pete Maravich, and no, you don't look like him...unless he contracted something in a trip to Africa.:lmao:
