ESPN’s College Game Day is both fun and informative.
Last season, with Coach Knight on the panel it was far, far more educational.
I never fail to learn something new when The General is either on a panel or doing color commentary.
I have learned exactly zero from Jalen Rose.
In the ACC, just two players lead their teams in scoring and assists---Miami’s Shane Larkin and Virginia Tech’s Erick Green. Great accomplishment by any definition!
Many deserved accolades applaud Duke’s Ryan Kelly on his ability to stretch defenses---enabling scoring lanes to open up due to his ability to shoot the three. Don’t leave Miami’s Kenny Kadji out of that conversation. He’s also 6’11’’and has put up three double doubles in a row, and is averaging 13.3 ppg. And, he’s hit 40 threes so far this season.
I’d like to see Myck Kabongo return to Texas next year.
I am looking forward to the West Coast Conference final. Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s, Monday night, under the lights---9 PM on ESPN---be there or be square!
Liberty (15-20) went on a four-game run through the Big South tournament, beating the league’s three best teams to get the automatic bid. Now, that’s a Cinderella story! Just another reason why college basketball is vastly superior to the NBA.
In as exciting a game as any on Saturday, Belmont rallied from a late seven-point deficit to force overtime---then knocked off Murray State on a basket with less than a second on the clock. They’ll represent the Ohio Valley Conference in the dance.
Even though Gonzaga beat them by 18-points, Loyola-Marymount deserves a great deal of credit. They won three games in the WCC Tournament after posting a 1-15 conference record. That’s a lot of heart.
Humiliating loss for Kansas at Baylor. The worst loss for the Jayhawks in seven years. Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot.
Great win for Air Force over New Mexico.
Even worse loss for UNLV at home to Fresno State, an eleven-win team.
Good win for Purdue over Minnesota…by 16 points.
Good win for Tennessee over Missouri.
Bad loss for Oregon at Utah…by ten.
The underachievers at NC State managed to lose to Florida State…not good.
How did Colorado lose to woeful Oregon State…at home no less? Inexcusable!
As horrid as the loss at Baylor was, it will all be forgotten if Kansas runs roughshod through the Big 12 Tournament.
Excellent win for Boise State over San Diego State. They’ll meet again Thursday in the Mountain West Tournament.
Be on the lookout for big things from Louisville in the next couple of weeks.
After the victory over VCU, Temple has seven wins in a row.
Colorado State starts five seniors.
In the Memphis victory over UAB, the Tigers had assists on 22 of their 30 baskets. Now, that’s teamwork!
Syracuse continues to be the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.
Good for Florida Gulf Coast winning the Atlantic Sun Conference and making their first Tournament appearance. Not bad for a college founded in 1991. Bon chance Eagles!
Not so fast: Marquette was picked to finish in the bottom half of the Big East…now they’re the #3 seed in the Big East Tournament.
One more thing: Florida cannot seem to win away from Gainesville…that may be a fatal flaw in the NCAA Tournament.
You made it to the end -- celebrate by watching some basketball.
