    Thanks, Reno. I have Iowa as one of my overrated teams. I expect them to go down against Wisconsin.

    USF's win earns them a chance at undefeated, AP #21 Buffalo, which would be a nice win for them. The timezone hangover likely makes it anyone's game. Though they have Cal and Stanford left on the schedule this will in all likelihood be their toughest test in the non-conf. Run the table or near to it, and the Dons could have something of a breakout year....

    So far I've been most impressed by LMU, USF and USD. Lions have a legit shot at UCLA; USF could beat Buffalo (and ASU if reschedule); USD has a chance to knock off SDSU.

    USF has the coolest name in all CBB: Frankie Ferrari. You just can't beat that.

    Today is a reminder that Power Five conferences are looking to eliminate any potential competition from the other kids on the block.

    Today's games include two Big Ten conference games. Creating super conferences that play round robins eliminates potential scheduling with mid major conference teams. Sad.

    A Number of people last year didn't talk kindly about Ferrari here on the board, but I like what I've seen. Good baller. And yes, a cool name at that!

    USF jumps both BYU & SMC on kenpom. Been awhile since we've seen that.


    (based on end of the year ratings USF has not been ahead of BYU since they entered the league & you have to go back to 2003 since they were ahead of SMC).
    Hey, did you happen to catch Judge Judy the other night?

    Wow. That's impressive! Big shake up in the league, minus #1 of course!

    Radford can play some ball. The Highlanders are 6-1 and also beat Notre Dame on the road.

    And Texas owns wins over North Carolina and Arkansas.

    Radford and Furman are two teams I wouldn't want to see in the 1st round if they win their league tourneys. The committee better seed those teams correctly.

    Texas #32 Kenpom, Radford #122. Difference +90 Texas. Zags #4 Kenpom, Creighton #29. Difference +25 Zags.

    Statistically does this say, “Watch Out, Zags,” on any given day............!

    The Oklahoma State vs. Minnesota game is being played at the site of this season's Final Four - US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Fans are sure a long way from the court

    Frankie has three brothers, Ralphie, Vinny and Giacomo. Too cool!

    What’s up with Kameka Hepa, is he hurt? Played a whopping 4 minutes tonight, Shaka rarely used his bench tonight.
