Schedule:

Everyone is playing today - seemingly.

So, with Reno down in Vegas, I'll just post the thread.

Ohio State 51
Indiana: 57

OSU was down 14 at half, mounting a furious comeback at home.

Indiana; had no idea their record was so awful 16-14 (5-11). Is Creen in trouble?

Yes Crean is in major trouble.

Illinois on the bubble who is struggling with Rutgers. That's a must win

Illini lose to Rutgers. Think the Big 10 will have several openings soon.

I'd probably have to swear off college BB if I was a Vandy fan and had to watch games on that court, in person or tv.

Butler pulls sort of a "BYU." City mice beat country mice.

LMU 30
BYU 30

Those two teams foul on every single play...it is nearly impossible for me to root for BYU, but I want them to advance and eventually play Gonzaga...

Not watching game but see LMU has 5 players with 2 fouls.

BYU has 4 players w/ 2 fouls - including the chucker Emery with 3 fouls

SMU, anyone? They have gotten zero attention this year. Destroyed an at least halfway decent Memphis team today. 17-1 in conference and 27-4 overall. Could sneak up on people in the Tourney.

I haven't been watching Arizona-ASU today, kinda lost confidence in my team, they just aren't fun to watch lately. Barring an epic collapse the Cats are gonna win and clinch a share of the regular season Pac 12 title (tie breaker is only used for conference tournament seeding). Up 67-55 w/ 2:25 left.

I wouldn't have a problem with Kansas getting beat.

1-4 versus top 50 indicates issue against strong balanced team

I would think the exact same thing was true of Gonzaga last year, before they went out and whupped Seton Hall and Utah.

Arizona won 73-60. Oregon up 32-24 over OSU at half, but it was tied at 22 not long ago. Strange things can happen in rivalry games. I can only hope the Quacks cough up a hairball today.

Wichita St. only up 3 at halftime against Missouri St. Winning the Valley conference tourney isn't a given, Illinois St. is pretty decent this year.

Not me. They seem to have our number much of the time. They are playing with house money and if they are on, they are a tough team to beat. They always seem to get up for the Zags.

Kansas over Ok State. I don't want to see Kansas until Monday night. I don't think it can be argued that having won so many games in the last minute won't help them.

Streamed BYU - LMU.

I have been making excuses all week on how/why, but after watching them today, how did we lose to that defense?!

Mika was still dominant. Future NBA player, but my goodness we are better than them, as in 20+ pts better.

Would love to see the Cougs Tuesday but SMC will dispatch them with little issue imho.

UNC-Duke underway, Duke up 17-16 at the under 12 minute media TO. Back and forth game, looks to be another classic in this series.

UNC leads 48-46 at the half. 17 lead changes. This is entertaining basketball!

I've watched just a few minutes of that. Garfield up 3 at halftime.

Santa Clara beat USF today.

Shaping up as another bruiser after Pacific.

Hard to fathom how Carolina gets away with all the pushing, shoving, hand checking and body blocks. Don't the refs know the rules?

I believe Gonzaga is something like 12-6 against BYU....if they can't beat BYU they don't deserve to be in the Tournament...

Are you kidding? Duke is gonna shoot well over 40 FTs at the rate they're going. Seems the refs are blowing their whistles plenty.

edited--wow, Duke only has 24 FT attempts, seems like way more than that to me

I think this is the best game I've watched all season. Carolina up 67-65 w/ 8:49 left. Continues to be continuously back and forth.

It could be, but it seems like Carolina plays with the "They won't call them all" mentality.

The announcers talked about a great off-the-ball play by a Carolina player and he pushed off to do it. Then they showed the replay to talk about it some more, and he still pushed off!

Nathan Hale pulled away for the win. Porter is great but I was also very impressed by their soph pg Fuller.

No such problem for me. I hate Duke and I kinda like Carolina.

Man, watching UNC-Duke and then looking at the score and seeing the Zags mucking about w/ a horrible Pacific team...sigh. The joys of playing in the WCC.


90-83 Carolina final. Duke is pretty damn scary for an 8 loss team.

I hate Duke and feel that Carolina should be facing sanctions instead of gaming the system.

Yeah, I understand the ONGOING investigation has not made UNC any new fans. The NCAA needs to wrap it up, announce sanctions and move on. This has been dragging on for at least 3 or 4 years.

I think Fuller is a borderline top 25 guy in his class. Freak athlete.

Portland started the game up 8-2, but SMC has come roaring back and is leading 16-10.

Valpo lost in their conference tourney semi final today. Gonna miss The Dance again. They've had some really good teams get left out in recent years.
