Angie Colip: Buckner perfect at Cooper's

As I said last week, perfection is coming in on a regular basis. Terry Buckner shot the fourth 300 game of the season on Wednesday night in the Industrial/Teachers league at Cooper’s Sport Bowl. Not only was it the fourth of the season but also the fourth 300 game of Buckner’s career.

Buckner started the night out with a 256 game and followed it up with his perfect game. He finished the night with a 740 series. Great bowling, Buckner!

On Tuesday night in the TNBA league Michael Head just missed his perfect game with a 298 and took over the high series of the year with a 791. Congratulations!

Also on Wednesday night, Steve Colip rolled three clean games. Colip started off with a 258 game followed by a 269 and finished the night with a 248 for a 775 series. Eight strikes in the last game with three 10-pin leaves kept Colip from his perfect game.

It was a great night of bowling with Brandon Robinson adding his 767 series to the books.

I was fortunate to have witnessed Wednesday’s accomplishments, which is rare for me. I usually only get the news after the fact and report what is given to me. This week I got to see first-hand some really great bowling.

I stayed in the back ground and just enjoyed the evening. Watching this league bowl is quite a treat.

As I talked with some of the bowlers, I heard how the lanes were being played and how this move or that move was the right one. Or the wrong one. They were reading the lanes and adjusting their game accordingly.

That is where I struggle. Reading the lanes and adjusting to the conditions is definitely not my strength. My experiment was not a success this week. I tried to apply all that I have learned over the years, and it did not help me.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
