    Time for this thread, which I did not see on the list.

    Not sure if this is the place, read about Cassius Winstons brother being hit and killed by an Amtrack train. Sad news.

    Cassius Winston Loses His Brother

    Zachary Winston, a sophomore basketball player at Albion College in Michigan, was hit by a train and killed last night in Albion. Heartfelt condolences to Cassius and the family -- this is really tough. A third brother, Khy, is also a basketball player at Albion. Khy is a freshman.

    Sad news.

    Even sadder

    The Albion Department of Public Safety is saying that Zachary Winston deliberately walked in front of the train. How horrible for him and his family.

    Less important

    Northwestern and Chris Collins somehow lost at home to Merrimack, in Merrimack's second game as a Division 1 team. Wow.

    My favorite is they "need to play more fast paste."

    Lemme know when they start a “should Cal retire?” thread. Until then, our board should not cast stones.

    I urge everyone to read the 'fast paste' thread over there. A few great posts.

    I watched most of the 2nd half of the Oregon-Memphis game. Oregon was clearly the better team at execution while Memphis is very athletic but undisciplined right now. Wiseman was a bit off after sitting most of the first half with two early fouls. He physically reminds me of Dwight Howard with less post game but more perimeter skill. However, he showed little ability to generate his own offense other than putbacks and did not have much of an impact on defense. You can see why the NBA covets him but I was not overly impressed. Boogie Ellis hit a nice 3 early in the half and then basically disappeared after getting a dunk attempt pinned to the backboard/rim. Based on this one game, I’m glad we have Stanley - however, we might need Boogies shooting at some point.

    I don’t see an AP poll thread so I guess I’ll ask this here. We are going to take over the #1 spot next week, barring a shocking upset to Georgia State. Many of us feel undeserving of that ranking based on what we have seen from our team. Who does everyone think the #1 team *should* be? Not based on actual results or win/loss record, but who you think the best team is? In other words, if the tournament were to be played today, who would be your pick to win it?

    Although I’d prefer our team not have the pressure of being #1, there is not a team that deserves it more. Unless you subscribe to the defending champ should be #1 till it loses philosophy...

    That is a hard question... Especially this year, because I haven't seen anyone play yet that is head and shoulders above the rest. I mean, I could say Virginia. They have only given up 68 points through 2 games. But they played Syracuse ( how good are they?) and JMU. Not exactly murders row, but still impressive defense.

    I could also say Louisville. But again, who have they played and would I be buying into the hype that has somewhat surrounded them thus far.

    Finally, I could say Duke. An impressive win over Kansas where they played excellent defense on a neutral court and two blowout wins against lesser opponents. But is that enough of a sample size for me to tell you definitively they should be number 1? No.

    Rankings in November is a useless exercise. I really don't think they should be done until January because that's when a majority really starts paying attention to college basketball.

    I guess I’ll say Duke because I can’t pick a team who I think would beat us.

    I think this feeling of, How can we be #1?, is two things. One is a bit of a hangover effect of not having superstars Zion or RJ. And two is seeing our defense ahead of our offense as much as it is.

    The offense will develop and even seemed to take a step forward last night. There’s a pretty high ceiling and I just love the fact that we can wear down teams playing pressure D at the same level for 40 minutes. Haven’t had that with a Duke team since when?

    "Fast paste" has potential -- could it be the new "amphibious?"

    And the OP repeated the spelling in his rejoinder to the critics.
