Nova is always down. Like Virginia they have a great coach and play brilliantly from behind. Fear not.

Looks like it just took a bit for Villanova to wake up. Nova up 7 with 12:36 to go.

Tenn lost this game because they shot so poorly..wide open lay ins. They just couldn't make shots. Nova's not overpowering but they are a very good team. Tenn missing wide open shots at the the rim was just crazy..and cost Tenn this game.

Portland showing well against UNC. If they can keep it under 20, I'd call that a moral victory.

Watching SMC/Harvard on ESN. SMC looks good

Observations about Jock: When he hedges on the P&R, if the dribbler runs into the outstretched arm, it's a foul on Jock. When he sets a screen, he shifts his hips etc to make the screen wider. If the defender doesn't go farther out to avoid contact...it's a foul on Jock.

An aggressive and smart team should be able to take him out fairly quickly, unless he stops.

#15 Xavier vs. Geo Washington 2:00pm FS1

Plz watch another Japanese player, Yuta Watanabe, George Washington, if you can! He is as tall as Rui, and good defender.
He may have different NBA potential, and ranked high in D1 by block now.
I'm looking forward to see how Yuta plays against a powerhouse, Xavier.
He is #12.

A quick google search did not turn up historical Duke vs opponent foul discrepancy, but I'd love to see it. Strange how they only have 10 vs PSU's 26 in a game where they appear to be just as physical.

Sitting 4 rows up from court baseline they got away with pushes and chicken wing hooks a lot

The t on the kid sitting on sideline waiting to come in from across court was bizarre

Staying Awake will be a challenge. 12:35 am start here back East, and at the in-laws with no DVR. Brutal. Advantage... it's really, really late for the Buckeyes too.

Villanova looks really, really good again. Imagine if the Zags could knock off Florida, Duke and Nova in the same season? That might just about guarantee a spot in the Spokane subregional this March. Hope it happens!
