It was difficult to watch because I like seeing MSU lose, but I want it to have as few losses as possible when Duke plays there.
    In high school, we had one humongous guy on our team who went on to play offensive lineman for a decent DII school. He was our 'let 'em play' secret weapon. Put him in the game with about 5 minutes left and dare the refs to keep calling the game the same way. If the refs shifted into 'let 'em play,' we put the hulk on the court and watch the opposing center get that deer in the headlights look.

    All that to say, 'let 'em play' tends to help the team which prefers to play physical. At least on the high school level, we had coaches smart enough to take advantage of it by putting in the football team.

    I'm bored so I'm watching Kansas with the comfortable lead over ETSU. They really need to rename that arena "The Maui Jim Maui Gym." Why hasn't this happened already?

    Hot'Lanta... home of the Falcons!
    As a reminder, this happens starting today... some pretty good teams in this tourney:

    Oddly Duke visits both Game 2 teams next week.

    Worth noting some other good T-giving tournaments.

    I think the toughest to pick is the Emerald Coast Classic. The 4 teams playing are FSU (#17 in KenPom) and Tennessee (#18) and then VCU (#32) against Purdue (#10). Good luck picking a winner in that one!

    The Battle For Atlantis (featuring a certain bunch of cheating liars) has a very strong field. Look at this and then think about the fact that someone is going to go 0-3 in this tourney (probably Southern Miss) and three teams will go 1-2. Ouch!

    Pretty weak field

    I dunno, only two teams (Kansas and MSU) in the top 40 in KenPom. VPI just below that, at 41. Lots of bubble teams, like Georgia, Dayton, and BYU. (And if Greenberg were still coaching VPI, they'd be on the bubble automatically._

    LOL at the term Emerald Coast, had to look that one up....I guess they didn't want to have a tournament called the Redneck Riviera Classic, eh?

    UAB plays at Rupp Arena tonight. Dare to dream...



    That was the winning play, but not the play I remember from that 2004 NCAA Tournament second round game. You can find that UAB crosscourt reverse pass and dunk here.

    Wow, tough, tough news for Georgetown. Akinjo and LeBlanc both off the team. That's probably sinking their (otherwise reasonably strong) NCAA chances. No details out there yet as to why.

    Maybe academics? That time of year.

    Highly unlikely unless it is for cheating. Exams start soon so usually academic issues arise after end-of-semester grades are finalized, in about 2-3 weeks.

    Academics? What do you mean? Is that still a thing?

    I heard it was a thing but then again I could be mistaken.

    Akinjo is not implicated in anything -- he expressed a desire to transfer at the end of the semester. Apparently LeBlanc is also interested in transferring, but he was implicated in some incidents that occurred near the Georgetown campus and resulted in restraining orders . Galen Alexander and Myron Gardner were also named -- but are still on the team.

    Akinjo might see a difficult year or two ahead and may want to get on a higher profile team. He has talent and I am sure will get a lot of interest.
