I believe this is the third time they've beaten Nova in the last two years.   All when they were rated #1 or #2.

Nice to see an Indiana school do well!  Go Bulldogs!

47 more posts and that'll be one for every point in the margin.

Whoever had Arizona State as the last remaining undefeated team in the country raise your hand.

Ouch. Conference play starts with a loss at Hilton against Kansas State, 91-75. Iowa State just couldn't hang. Our team is really green this year after losing Monte Morris and Naz Long and Deonte Burton

What more do you expect from a football school?

I don't understand this team. But I'm happy with the win.

The Dookies go down at home to Virginia and Grayson Allen proving once again how much of a sore losing prick he is at the end of the game. I hope his jaw is broken and he loses a couple of teeth.

Some great games today!  Iowa State held on to get the upset vs. #17 Oklahoma, and the Spartans pulled it out with a clutch 3-ptr with 2.7 remaining to win 68-65.  #5 Xavier just snuck by Creighton 72-71, UNC put up 96 in a win vs NC State, and tonight features two good west coast games with #11 St Mary's hosting #12 Gonzaga, and the #23 NV Wolf Pack hosting San Diego State.

Go Pack!  Go Zags!  :dweez:

Duke loses and stays the same or goes up in the polls. The media darlings are being positioned for a #1 seed, if they don't lose in their tourney. Their strength of schedule is 16th and they are the highest ranked team with 6 losses. Pathetic.

I can't stand the preferential treatment that Duke and Coach K get.  I do recognize why they get it, though:

Tournament Appearances: 41
Final Fours: 16
Championships: 5 (1991, 1992, 2001, 2010, 2015)

From USA Today:  Five bold projections for March Madness

https://www.usatoday...-way/393561002/

A No. 4 seed will win the national title
Big Ten tourney champ Michigan looks like it's just getting started. The Wolverines, winners of nine in a row, showed the strength of an NCAA tournament No. 1 seed with the way they took down projected No. 2 seeds Michigan State and Purdue. There's no question Michigan is peaking at the best time, and now it's shot up to a projected No. 4 seed in USA TODAY Sports' latest bracketology. With top seeds winning the national championship in each of the last three seasons, this surely could be the year to buck that trend.


Surprise teams will win the Big 12, ACC tournaments
Regular-season champion Kansas has the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 tournament. However, based on the way the Jayhawks looked Saturday in a blowout loss to Oklahoma State, it's clear that tournament — which features nine of 10 NCAA tourney-caliber teams — won't be lacking upsets or suspense.

As for the other premier conference tournament, look for Virginia, which likely already has locked up the top overall No. 1 seed in the NCAAs, to go down early. Duke is fighting for a No. 1 seed, but could also fall victim to a team that gets hot.


Michael Porter Jr. will give us what we've been missing
...the talented forward is poised to come back in the SEC tournament — giving hoops fans a glimpse of his skill set for the first time and also making the Tigers a sleeper team to do things in the SEC and NCAA tourneys.


A mid-major not named Gonzaga will go to the Sweet 16
There are some dangerous mid-majors out there this season. And forecasting some of these teams as Sweet 16 capable is probably being modest.
  • Rhode Island (a projected No. 9 seed) has hit a rough patch but dominated the Atlantic 10 for much of the season, and is looking to build off last year's near-Sweet 16 finish that ended with a narrow round of 32 loss to Oregon. E.C. Matthews and Jared Terrell are back from that squad.
  • Nevada (a projected No. 8 seed) has excelled in the Mountain West and has a versatile forward in Caleb Martin (19.5 ppg).  :dweez:
  • Loyola-Chicago (a projected No. 10 seed) has a top-five defense and a well-spaced offense loaded with sharpshooters. The Ramblers also have a great inside-out game behind freshman Cameron Krutwig.
  • Middle Tennessee State (a projected No. 11 seed) already has put on the glass slipper in the last two NCAA tournaments with first-round upsets, and is poised for even bigger things. Nick King (21.2 ppg, 8.2 rpg) has emerged as an offensive weapon.
  • Saint Mary's (a projected No. 11 seed) has beaten Gonzaga and is only on the bubble because of the down West Coast Conference. Big man Jock Landale (21.3 ppg, 10.5 rpg) has put together an All-American season.   EARL!!!
A bubble team will go on a deep run
Syracuse barely got into the field of 68 in 2016 and turned that into a Final Four run. Look for something similar to happen in 2018.

Holy cow!  Pittsburgh was dead in the water, but are now just down 3pts with 1:18 to go...and Notre Dame just turned it over.

I love March basketball!

Playing Pitt close should, in and of itself, keep ND out of the tournament.   This is the same team whose halftime score vs UVa looked like a typical UConn women's conference semi score.
