    It's not saturday, but 2 excellent big east TEAMS currently in a great game, with a red hot Creighton trailing St. Johns who are at home. Worth a watch for CBB fans.

    The Red Storm ripped off 11 straight points. . .Red Storm shooting 66% from 3P

    84 - 66, 4:27 to go

    St. John's hasn't defeated a Top 10 team in their gym since 1975

    ETA: Final Score 91 - 71. Box Score: https://www.espn.com/mens-college-ba...meId=401168337

    St. John's finished at 64% from 3pt range on 22 attempts. I wonder if a D1 team has ever lost shooting over 60% on at least 15 (or 20) attempts.

    Creighton shot 14% (4-27)

    Creighton took 5 more 3s, but scored 30 fewer points from deep. No way in the world to win that game.

    Blue Jays laid an egg at Louie's place. It happens. Fun game to watch, LTown. The Big East tourney is going to be crazy.

    FINAL

    Indiana -66
    Illinois - 67

    Hoosiers missed 2 FT that would have tied the game @ 65 with roughly 6 seconds to play.

    Does the skinnier Miller get a raise for being close?
    Big Blue now 18-11, damn. For a week they were the best team of the decade, per Greenberg, Williams, et al.

    This is exactly how the Lady Zags lost their one WCC conference game to St. Mary's 70-60. SMC shot 56.5% overall (26-46) and 66.7% from 3 (14-21). Tough to win when the opposition shoots lights out.

    Baylor and Texas Tech tied at 60 with 36 seconds left. Tech ball but it’s being reviewed.

    It may have been slim pickings but that Texas Tech and Baylor game was a great pick.
    If you can't handle the confusion, stay out of the Foo!

    Purdue lurking in the 8/9 slot in the West. Scary. Battle tested.

    With as many big 10 teams are projected, likely zags will have 1 in their pathway early.

    It's amazing that crocodile tears Izzo with NINE losses is being pumped as a sleeper F4 team.....P5 teams get so much slack, the antithesis of GU, which gets almost none.

    Heard one of the announcers (I believe it was on ESPN) saying that Mich State might be keeping GU up at night - with the thought being that if Mich State goes on a strong run to end the season, they may bump GU out of a 1 seed. I thought that was quite the stretch...

    lol, they have to sell something

    straight up, I don't care what the seed is. Location and matchup, that's it for me, the rest sells advertising for months discussing this stuff

    whatever the seed is to get the best locations and matchups. Do you think Davidson cared what # their seed was, or that they got to play in their backyard in a good matchup for them? for example

    I do get the sentiment - shades of the old "any time, any where, anyone"... and I mostly agree with you that it's about matchups - I think there are two factors that would give the zags a significant boost to a F4 chance.

    1. Los Angeles region.
    2. Give me SDSU as the #2 seed in our region. Not because I think they'll make it to the E8 - but just because that's one less scary good team in our region.

    This is what I'm hoping to see on Selection Sunday.

    I like it. If BYU was the #3 seed out West w Duke #4 seed, Id love to see Zags take out Duke in a Sweet 16 matchup then play SDSU or BYU in Elite Eight.
