Oh mercy, I'm not gonna get anything done...

Start out with some "daytrippin'" with the Dukies, then hop over to check on my NFF (new favorite flopper) Dillon Brooks and the Dux take on AZ. Hope to see the Irish take down the Tarheels (what will Roy Williams throw if that happens?). Then the nightcap, GossZaga and Santa Clara. I guess that fresh 10 inches of snow in my driveway will still be there on Sunday!

All 12 of the Zags' non-conference opponents play today. Only 3 are at home; only 4 have a better record than their opponents today. Since these 12 account for 50% of the Zags' RPI, today's games could have a real impact. A handful of road upsets coupled with home teams holding serve could be a nice bump up. OTOH, well, never mind.

Go ZAGS and go Zag OOC opponents!

My ideal Saturday, sit on a** and watch:
Pitt beat Duke; Arizona beat Oregon; Florida beat Kentucky; Zags beat Broncos

Likely Saturday:
Laundry; grocery shopping; Home Depot for compost/mulch; work in garden; get tax returns in order; drink beer and watch Zags

All good!

Expecting their first sellout of the year (for a men's game, the women packed the house against Stanford last weekend). First sellout in quite a while I believe. Probably lots of people wanting to be able to say they saw Fultz vs. Ball while they were in college.

Of course Oregon has pulled their heads out of their backsides and is playing flawless basketball today. By the time the stupid Kansas OT game finished it already looks like this one is over.

Kansas was atrocious down the stretch of regulation and OT. Maybe just a bad game, but if that's the #3 team in the country...

How can St. Mary's nearly lose at Pacific on Thursday night (74-70), and then ago into the Slim Gym and just absolutely annihilate USD 71-27. 44 pt. win. They held the Toreros to 19.6% shooting and 23.1% from three. If you combine this with their dominating win at Portland where they beat the Pilots 74-33 (41 pt. win, held Pilots to 25% shooting and 22.% from 3), St. Mary's has got to have 2 of the 8 or so most dominating conference wins in college basketball this season. Obviously, Louisville's win at Pitt probably takes the cake.

The Pac 12 race has gotten interesting because Arizona and Oregon are tied for the league lead. Each has one loss. Everyone else has 3 or more. There isn't a return game to the McKale Center, so the Wildcats and Ducks will not face each other again unless it's at the Pac 12 Tourney.

Wally Szczerbiak was another analyst who got on the Arizona hype train (like Jay Williams). The problem with these people is like many people, they overrated UCLA, which is still at #133 in defensive efficiency and has two AWFUL defenders in Alford And Welsh. They have almost zero ability to defend the low post. If you have reasonably skilled and strong post guys, they are going to destroy Welsh. They have about as much power to defend the post as a kid's toy car. I was hardly surprised by Arizona going into Pauley and beating them. Keep in mind that Alford also had scouted his team to play Arizona without Trier.

I think a lot of these Arizona hypers didn't realize that it takes time to bring talented players on to a team that was already playing well and get them all to meld.. People automatically think that adding new talented players makes your team better, but it doesn't. It takes time. Look at what is happening at Duke right now since the three injured but ultra talented freshmen joined the rotation. Sure, Allen has been a distraction, but their team just looks like it isn't together. I think Arizona is now experiencing that. The UCLA win at Pauley was kind of fool's good in some ways. Now that being said, there is just simply no excuse for the Wildcats to get hammered like that at Oregon. They have too many good players and too good of a coach to prevent something like that from happening. I thought Zona would lose, but not by that margin.

I still can't believe that ISU beat KU and broke the massive home floor winning streak. You have to wonder if at some point all of the off the court distractions could get to Kansas. The issue is that without Bragg (and even with him), the Jayhawks have almost zero low post depth and muscle. They have huge issues defending the rim. They are getting by on the genius of Mason, Jackson and some great role players. But they aren't the most intimidating team to score on. The fact that Iowa State could go into there and beat them - a team that is one of the shortest high major teams in the land - just shows you how vulnerable KU is around the hoop right now.

Anybody that got as far as junior varsity at a small town high school should have been able to see in about 30 seconds that Ball is a thousand times the basketball player Fultz is. Not that Fultz lacks the physical ability; he has that in spades, but he's like Dominique Wilkins- a stat collector rather than a winner (so far at least; I suppose it could change, but doubtful.) Ball's the opposite.

Unbelievable that anyone who gets paid for such decisions would consider taking Fultz ahead of Ball for even a millisecond.

A few years ago the NESCAC (a Div 3 Conference) did a study on the impact of playing college sports on students. The results were surprisingly negative except for the kids who were focused on going pro and the kids on winning teams. Fultz will still go to the NBA, but how much fun is this, his only year of college experience? He's been a very good sport and acquitted himself well, but you know this year in Seattle has taken a toll.
