    It's almost Jabari Parker time...Can't wait for this season, tons of solid match ups and especially with the reformatting ACC.

    I'm cautiously excited about UCLA this season. We really need to work on rebounding, but we've got a decent, if limited squad. I don't think we're championship contenders, but hopefully we can make it past the first round.

    New Mexico is the overwhelming favorite in the Mountain West this season. I don't want to delude myself into thinking this is the year they get to the Sweet 16.




    But this is the year they get to the Sweet 16.

    Hah, no doubt. That game taught me a valuable lesson. DO NOT travel to see UNM play in the NCAA Tournament, it will just end in major disappointment.

    And all the assholes who were rooting for Harvard that game were treated to a terrible game between Arizona and Harvard two days later.

    By the way, get ready for what might be an unwatchable first month or so of the season. I don't know the specifics, but there are new hand-checking rules, so the number of fouls called during these secret scrimmages have been pretty much off the charts. It could be ugly until the players adjust to the new rules. But it ultimately might make for better basketball when things settle down.

    Great day for Duke basketball! Jhalil Okafor and Tyus Jones, two of the top five recruits for next year, both committed to Duke. I know it's damn near impossible but just the thought of Parker coming back next year and hooping with these kids would be a nightmare for the nation. Oh, to dream...

    The MSU/Columbia final score is incredibly misleading. Michigan State looked terrible.

    Great win for Arizona...balanced scoring with all starters in double figures, and a very impressive defensive effort in the second half...held Jabari Parker to his worst shooting night (7-21) of the season.

    I haven't been able to watch any of the games so far, but I'm quite pleased with UCLA's scores and their record thus far. Hopefully they'll be 7-0 after tonight.

    Solid win for Arizona last night. Duke definitely needs to get their defense ironed out and everyone other than Parker and Hood need to figure out what their roles are. I'm pretty shocked how Rasheed Sulaimon has taken a step back after tearing it up in the Tournament last season. Here's to hoping this ridiculously tough schedule helps toughen those boys up. Michigan on Tuesday...

    As long as Arizona can avoid a let down against UNLV this Saturday, they should be ranked #1 in the next set of rankings. Looking at their body of work through through 8 games in comparison to the rest of the teams near the top, I honestly don't think it's very close either.
    fuck.

    Huge comeback win for Stanford at #10 UConn...with no bench scoring and going 41% from the line.

    Default Re: College Basketball 2013-2014

    i am not surprised by the Stanford win... Shabazz Napier is the most overhyped guard i've seen this season


    and speaking of underrated, keep your eyes on Texas' Isaiah Taylor.. his blazing speed in pushing the pace had North Carolina's transition defense completely on their back heels. He is a disrupter . And thunders his way to the basket with absolute no fear.
    If he could develop some sort of outside stroke i might be tempted to give him the New-Iverson mantle

    Shows image with Marcus Camby, who hasn't played for the school in 18 years.


    They're pretty tough, though. They put it on my UNM Lobos in the last 10 minutes of their game in November.

    It's a "back to the future" motif with Camby's point guard and current head coach, Derek Kellogg, smiling down sardonically from the future on the memories of that Final Four season that never happened because of Camby's shady dealings with shady sports representation agents. Or something like that.

    Fair enough. I remember Kellogg back then, too. And Edgar Padilla and Carmelo Travieso. Even Lou Roe right before that 1996 team. I liked watching UMass back then. This is likely the best team they've had since.

    Don't forget Donta Bright!.

    Tommy, you must have lived up here to be dropping Carmelo Travieso bombs like that.

    Yes, Donta Bright! I was trying to remember his name.

    And I've lived in Albuquerque all my life. I've just been a college-basketball nut since I was 12-years old, and I have an especially vivid memory of college basketball in the 90's. I even remember Harper Williams, my friend. Oh and a family friend of ours, Kenny Thomas, worked out with Lari Ketner in preparation for the 1999 NBA Draft. I don't remember if Ketner got drafted, if he did it was in the 2nd round, but Kenny went in the 1st round to Houston and had a nice career.
