The Big 12-SEC challenge is getting a good deal of notice down here. With a bit of imagination, couldn't the WCC do something similar?

Requires imagination. . .after moving the conference tourney to Lost Wages, when was the last time the WCC showed any ?

How many decent league vs league match-ups could you put on TV? I wouldn't watch very many of them.

One thing that just now occurred to me is a format involving 3 or 4 of these leagues together. I think you COULD put together some nice sectional games & give some teams an opportunity to get into parts of the country that they might not otherwise get to.

Kentucky at WVa will tell us a lot about how what kind of a team Calipari is turning his latest batch of one and doners into. Youngsters on the road in Morgantown vs a veteran and always tough as nails Mountaineers squad. I predict WVa wins big, though admittedly I haven’t seen UK play and have a strong dislike for Calipari that skews my judgment.

Is it just me or, now that Coach K has out-Calipari-d Calipari by bringing in groups of one and doners at a time, is Kentucky hoops fading from the national spotlight?

Arizona hangs on against Utah, 74 - 73


Strange game. Arizona shot over 60% overall and behind the arc, much better shooting than Utah. Utes had twice as many FT attempts as Arizona did. Game was in Tucson. You wouldn't exactly expect that to be the case. With the exception of the Cal game, every conference game for UA has been close. They either start out really poorly and then play catch up or get off to a good start, then let the other team back in the game. Haven't even come remotely close to putting together a solid 40 minutes yet.

I quit watching the Zags while they were busy blowing a 17 point lead. College basketball just isn't very fun for more anymore.

West Virginia was up 15 at the half, now down 7 w/ 15 seconds left against an unranked Kentucky team. I know Coach Cal always has talent, but still that's gotta be a bad loss for WVU. I've never boughten into them. They play a gimmicky defense that can cause problems, outside of that they're nothing much. About to drop to 16-5 and only 5-3 in conference, how are they #7 in the country? I just don't think there are hardly any really good teams this year. Parity/mediocrity reigns supreme.

edited--game was in Morgantown


North Carolina was #10. W/ today's loss they dropped to 5-4 in conference play. Somebody has to be in the top 10, but none of these teams impress me.
