Have you worked up or seen any other charts, graphs and/or prognostications (thinking Nate Silver-like) that you could share as it relates to the dance ?

Would love to see what the more scientific guessers have. I know Nate has us in FF, then losing, for e.g. WHo else.

Thanks.

Sadly yes for Kyle. UK has some absolute studs coming in next year. They may be 1 and done this year, but will be a force next year.

They are doing a good job with their D - foul trouble could raise its head, so could fatigue, just not that deep.

Whatever Walker did to earn the unofficial benching for the year has sure hurt them (in combo with Page's injury). Seems to me that Holt needs to keep trying to get to the line - - it's their best play, seemingly.

Gaels slipping on the boards and now they are turning it over.

Delly needs to control pace and the offense or SMC is doomed.

SMC fans can rationalize losing Delly all they want to but they are a middling WCC team if he isn't in control.

Why did Kentucky play Robert Morris on Robert Morris's home court?

Because they're hosting NCAA Tourney games at Rupp Thursday. I'm sure there's a lot of prep that goes into hosting an NCAA game, and they'd either have to cram it in after the NIT game, or have NCAA tourney floor, banners, etc. all over the place for an NIT game.

Like Marv Albert, you likely can't even pronounce "Gonzaga" correctly, let alone understand the level of competition the Zags faced.

Dear Reno:

Most of us don't have enough time to actually come out to Seattle to see Gon Zah goo play, give us a break, huh? I saw that you guys were undefeated in your conference - good for you! It must have been balls to see them beat Nevada-Reno in your hometown!

Love,
Marv

Lol I love Barkley always speaks his mind. Just said the Gaels have no chance against Memphis. :D

Charles said they had no chance against Middle TN St. Way to go Gaels!

BYU finishes off UW. Not a surprise. I knew UW had no chance going into Provo. BYU is so tough at home and UW is just not good on the road. And not that good to begin with. They made T. Haws look like an All-American. Congrats Tyler! The dude is going to be so tough for 2 more years. Now don't go Couging it and win it all!!

Oh, by the way, since the Zags have no chance against Southern, hopefully the guys can at least make it respectable...

There's always a chance; especially with Delly on their side, but love Barkley's style too.

I enjoy Charles too. My mother thinks he is a blowhard. I like his independence and verve.

I actually think SMC has a punchers chance against Memphis as I don't think their coach is all that good. They will have to control the game just like they did tonight.

Great way to start the madness. WCC is 4 and 0. Yes, I am overlooking Southern because I know the team will not.

Looks like Robert Morris is taking full advantage of their win. Wikipedia:

Why did Kentucky play Robert Morris on Robert Morris's home court?

Because the Kentucky home court was getting prepared for the NCAA tournament, where it is hosting first round action.

God that's gotta sting.

Here is my question: if you are Kyle Wiltjer, and you went to Kentucky, and you lost in the first round, of the NIT, to Robert Morris, and in two days you will tune in and see #1 ranked Gonzaga take the court as one of the #1 seeds and start their run--what are you thinking?

Lets not forget he just won the championship last year. I don't get why we are so fixated on this guy anyway. He would be coming off the bench for us too. He might be better than Sam but I'm not sure about that.

He contributed nothing to that championship.

It's still gotta sting.

My point was not so much to rip the kid, as it was to point out how lucky we are and how fortunate our players are. The last guy to wear a GU jersey to have not played in an NCAA game every year of his tenure graduated and left the program over a decade ago. Pretty impressive.

The same cannot be said for the following schools: Kentucky, Indiana, UCLA, North Carolina, Maryland, Florida, UConn, Syracuse, Georgetown, Arizona, Texas, etc. You get the idea.

Only Duke, Michigan State, and Kansas have been to more tournaments consecutively than we have.

If I am Kyle and I just lost in the first round of the NIT to Robert Morris and in two days will be watching a couple friends at #1 ranked Gonzaga the the court as a 1 seed to start their run--

I'm probably thinking "I won a championship last year, and I'm likely to win one next year, I don't mind this situation too awful bad. Now lets go my buddies Pangos and Hart!"

Poor Kyle Wiltjer. ;)

Wow, it is crazy to think that a player might want to transfer to a top 25 West Coast school. This is truly breaking news. I wish someone on this board knew something about this sooner.
