Shabazz is the type of player who will score and usually do so efficiently for a player of his size. I can totally understand what NBA Scouts see in him because he has a lot of tools to work with. Under the right coach, his ceiling is really, really high.

    Sure, Arizona State is playing better than UCLA, but the refs aren't calling a single fucking foul against ASU. This is getting ridiculous.

    Last night, Tubby's Gophers somehow beat Indiana, and tonight, Penn St, who hasn't won a Big Ten game yet, beat Michigan. Dare I say that the Big Ten is as deep as it's been since probably the mid-90s? The Gophers play Purdue next, and that game is a coin-flip at best. This is a crazy year.

    But! As much as it pains me to say it- if Dook gets Kelly back healthy by the tournament, they're gonna win. That guy is really f'n good.

    This Duke-Miami game is a final 4 preview. I know I'm not going out on a limb with that. Duke has Kelly back, and this game has been back and forth, but really well-played on both sides.

    Duke sure looks like a whole different team when Kelly's back. Needless to say, I'm beyond excited for this tournament.

    Oh Gophers... who are you? You're proving that RPI and SOS are as fraudulent as BCS. You don't deserve a trip to the dance. 8th in the Big Ten with a sub-500 record should not get you in. This loss to Nebraska tonight is really damaging

    Yeah that shit was embarrassing. Tubby is terrible. They were down by 3 with a little over 30 seconds left, and the bright idea was to keep passing it along the perimeter, kill time, and shoot a contested 3-pointer? Why not go for a quick two and put the pressure on Nebraska to hit their free throws?

    Minnesota probably shouldn't be in the NCAA Tournament, but they're still in good shape because the at-large pool is downright awful. If you look at every other bubble team, pretty much all of them have similar or worse losses.

    Weird seedings. I think seeds 5-12 were balled together with the thought process there isnt much difference in the talent level of those teams. I feel bad for UNC and Oregon though. They got jobbed with their seedings

    I don't expect a ton out of UCLA now that Jordan Adams is out. We put up a decent fight against Oregon (who, agreed, should have received a better seed) but we're missing a good defender and a great scorer. Really bummed that his season ended that way.

    The way the Gophers have underachieved and sputtered down the stretch, it's a coin-flip game. The Gophers are capable of anything... good or bad. They've beaten some of the best teams in the country but have also lost to Northwestern and Nebraska. And lately theyve been a trainwreck

    If Adams were still with us, I'd give it to us easy, but without him it's going to be a struggle. But who knows. I was fairly impressed with Norman Powell's showing yesterday, so maybe with a few days of constant practice he can get more into a groove with the team.

    Michigan starts off at home against South Dakota State.

    Michigan State starts off at the Palace at Auburn Hills against Valparaiso.

    These are both very generous.

    Arizona starts off against Belmont in Salt Lake City. Which seems quite reasonable, too.

    The ESPN 30 for 30 special on Jim Valvano and the 30-year anniversary of the 1983 NC State National Championship team was really good. They do show the ESPY speech within the 2-hour documentary, but it was really well done. I've never been a fan of NC State (unless they're playing Duke lol), but it's a cool story and the clips they have of Jimmy V are pretty cool. I definitely recommend watching it.

    It's too bad the best team in Pac 12 is only about as good as the 3rd or 4th best team in the Mountain West.

    It really doesn't matter in the tournament. I just want to take the opportunity to gloat a bit while I still can. New Mexico, UNLV, and San Diego State cant really continue to compete for recruits against the likes of UCLA for much longer, can they?

    Nice to see KU getting that #1 seed. I don't have as strong a confidence in this team as I had in years past, but they are my team all the same. This year's March Madness is going to be a lot of fun to watch!

    Has New Mexico or VCU ever been able to compete with UCLA or UNC in recruiting players? Doubtful.
    I figured the reason your "mid-major" or non-BCS conference schools... or just any school not viewed as a dynasty school (Kentucky, UCLA, UNC, Duke, etc) get 2nd/3rd-tier recruits. But you know what those recruits do? They stay in school all 4 years. They develop their games. They get stronger. They play smarter. Their teams have continuity and they play better as a whole, because they have played together for 3-4 years. And that's why more and more in the past 10-15 years these schools go deeper in the dance. It's not shocking anymore how good these teams do.

    I mean look at Kentucky. They can keep getting the best freshman every year. But if they keep leaving after one year, eventually it'll catch up to them. It's also why Wisconsin year after year maintains their success level with under the radar recruits. It's guys that fit Bo Ryan's system and the players rarely ever leave school early. As where Tom Izzo at Michigan St is constantly having to re-load with fresh recruits.
