  • Coach Forbes and ETSU are in trouble on holding on to their winning streak. Down 44-55 with 9+ to go.

    • ND, short -handed without Colson and Harvey, trying their hardest to help us down only 57-60 to UNC with under 8 to go. Ferrell not a lot of help going 1-10 from 3 so far.

      • Bucknell down 8 points with under 25 seconds left.

        Bucknell scores and gets fouled and makes the FT to cut it to 5 with 21 seconds left.

        Colgate then turns it over losing it out of bounds with 18 seconds left.

        Bucknell then misses gets the rebound and on the rebound the Colgate guy just grabs the Bucknell player from behind not trying for the ball and yet somehow the Foulland still puts it in to cut the lead to 3 with 11 seconds left. The refs go to the replay and call a flagrant 1. 2 FT's and the ball he makes 1 of the FT's.

        Now with ball down 2 you they pass the ball inside then back outside then pass around the 3 point line twice to the corner and the jumper at the buzzer by Mackenzie for 3.........swish and a most improbable win.

          Huh?????? OK, very unusual, but still.

      • Baylor up 25-22 on Texas early in the second half. Would be nice if they could do us another solid.

        • Bears blew a 4 point lead with less than 40 seconds in OT. Now in double OT. Nation's longest winning streak ends for ETSU and Steve Forbes. That was the one they needed to run the table.

          Savannah State continues their winning ways in the MEAC. 108-106 winners tonight (no OT believe it or not). That's 10 straight. Cincy takes ownership of the longest current winning streak at 16. Jans and NMSU sit at 11. Vermont, Rider, and several others are double digits.

          Big win for Baylor 74-73.

            • Shaka is 46-46 and 20-29 in Big XII with the Longhorns. How much longer does he have?

                Shaka has a very young team. No seniors in the first regular 9 and has another good recruiting class coming in. He should be safe for at least a couple more years, if not longer.

                  Heck no.

                  I've heard "local pundits" spout the petered out line "Yeah, but they haven't beaten anybody... They were exposed against the Sooners so bad that their victory at Baylor doesn't count, nor does winning in Stillwater by 12. Because, you see, they haven't beaten a team like The Chickens or Kentucky." That's how that works, and always will.

                  Quadrant theory? Yeah right.

                    Keep in mind these guys aren’t on the committee, so their opinions don’t mean squat

                    The problem lies in the fact that the people on the selection committee also watch these toads expounding the same mantra so they begin to believe its true.

                    When has the committee's opinion ever differed from people who watch Big Monday, and little else beyond that, maybe Big Tuesday, that you could enlighten us on? They aren't swayed by -ahem- "big wins" while totally paying no heed to losses?

                • What kills me me is Seth Greenberg "Coach" was a lifetime .565 winning average as a head coach. So he either wasn't very good as a recruiter or a coach but he is an analyst on mens basketball. Why not have someone like Bob Knight? Oh yeah he was successful and says what he thinks and not just what is popular.

                    Seth knows what he is talking about and doesn't get lost in odd rabbit holes... Bob Knight was not a great color commentator and I would expect him to be a worse in studio analyst... He was stuck in how it was done in 1985 which isn't very relevant in today's game.

                  I love KenPom, but Q1/2/3/4 is based on RPI.

                  That said, Baylor now at 53 in the RPI. 97% chance of finishing top 75, which is what is needed to be a Q1 road win.

                  1 more win probably is all they need. 2 more most definitely locks them into top 75.

                  • On a related note UCF is sitting it 57 in the RPI. If they can stay there we might have another tier 1 game left on the schedule. Need SMU to get it going as best they can and we may have 4 tier 1 games remaining.
                    You miss 100% of the shots you don't take....

                    .....but, statistically speaking, you miss 99% of the shots you do take.

                    • Could this be the history between Marshall and Seth Davis?

                      Moderator at news conference: "Next, we have a question from Seth Davis for Gregg Marshall. Go ahead Mr.Davis".

                      Seth Davis: "Gregg, is there any valid reason why you didn't take the South Carolina job when it was open? It seems that would be an ideal destination for you at this stage of your career".

                      The rest of the exchange was, unfortunately, lost due to a technical malfunction. Something about a microphone overheating and melting.
                      The future's so bright - I gotta wear shades.
                      We like to cut down nets and get sized for championship rings.

                        I think a lot of it has to do with preseason expectations by Davis, Katz, etc. They come in hot on the Shocks at the beginning of the season, a surefire Final Four team. When we lose a few games and aren't the "world beaters" they expected, they look like fools. They're trying to save face with the ridiculous rankings.
