    Baylor blowing a big lead at ATM. were up double digits the first 15 minutes of the half and need a very difficult running layup to hold on to a 3 point lead at the half. don't see how ATM doesn't win this. Baylor is like a Tom Penders team, unbeatable for 5 minutes....clueless the next 5. whatever the opposite of "basketball IQ" is. Jones, Acey, and Dunn with all of BU's points, mostly.

    OSU shoots 25 FT's in the first half but trails OU 42-39 at the half. once the "everything is a foul" parade was underway, Capel subbed in two bigs i've never heard of....Washington and Honory? let them take fouls....their scorer Pledger and teh big Fitzgerald only have 2 fouls as a result. it was so bad at one point, Ford had K. Page driving the lane since OU was afraid to guard him (for the auto 2 points from the line)....and Page isn't making anyone forget George Gervin.

    KSU up 5 at ISU just underway in the 2nd. haven't been watching this one.

    i think the home team wins the first two, and KSU holds on against slumping ISU.

    Need Georgia to beat Auburn and San Francisco to take down Saint Mary's for our RPI.

    Inside the conference, I think what we need is for KU, UT and TAMU to separate from the pack. Then, have everyone else mired in mediocrity so that a win today puts us in the driver's seat for the 4 seed in the Big 12 tourney.

    BU comes out of the half on fire, takes 9 point lead in Collie Station.

    OSU-OU, Pokes with the lead. Up 6 I think. One of the worst basketball games ever. Refs have taken over. Like those games last year (KSU?) where every possession is a foul.

    ISU takes 3 point lead against KSU. Clones in double-bonus, yet only have committed 4 team fouls. 6 minutes left.

    aTm has lost 3/4 and is struggling again today down 61-52

    ISU is up on KSU 79-73 as the game enters the final minutes

    Would hope Indiana could beat Iowa at home as well. As bad as the Hoosiers have looked, they're coming off a win against a ranked Minnesota team and a win today would bring them to 13-11 (4-7)

    Good point on Indiana. They have to win that game.

    KSU scores with 2.6 left to win 86-85 in Ames. Not sure if that's good for us or not...KSU stays alive now at 16-8 (4-5)

    i think of these 3 games, Baylor losing is the best outcome. the other ones don't matter as much. I'd like to see KSU viable until we (hopefully) beat them next week. Then, slide on Cats....thy litter box awaits.

    all 3 games, pretty exciting.

    Crew on ESPN (Bayor/aTm) just had CU's tourney hopes as "Partly Cloudy" with Baylor. Had Okie State, K-State and OU as "Mostly Cloudy".

    I think CU's hopes are more "Mostly Cloudy" right now, as we're a game or two off at this point. Really need an unexpected upset somewhere (like tonight's game) to be a realistic candidate

    ATM getting stuck in the "let's shoot a 3 over the zone" mindset. possession with 2 shot clocks, never work it in....take 2 3's. miss both.

    also, missing FT's are the Aggy.

    Okie State pulled away at the end over OU. OSU goes to 16-7 (4-5), OU drops to 12-10 (4-4).

    This is going to be one hell of a fight to the finish involving CU, OSU, KSU and Baylor

    Georgia got the win in OT over Auburn. That helps.

    OSU beating OU moved us up in the conference standings today.

    Need TAMU to finish this comeback now. Tied at 69. I really hate Baylor.

    Although it won't mean much for CU this year, I was glad to see UCLA take out St. John's. That's a good win for the Pac-12 and western basketball.

    Pokes haven't impressed me this year, their next four are @Nebraska, @Texas, Texas A&M, and @KU. That should knock them out of the picture

    agree. they have 3 guys today who combine for 35 FT attempts. none of them were Pilgrim or Moses. the hand-checks up top being called were silly. when a team is in the bonus it's too much to be calling everything 25 feet from the basket...and sending a guy to the line before the ball has even been passed around the perimeter. free points. even though i think we beat them here, i don't want to see NU in a first round conf tournament game....but OU, ISU, Tech, OSU i'm OK with. KSU, we'll see next week.

    amazing how Baylor's athletic "length" as they say (that's what she said)...bails them out for easy hoops.

    The officiating in this league is unbelievable. Big XII and Big East are the worst officiated conferences in the country.

    NU is a terrible match-up for us, but we should beat them in Boulder if we can get an early lead impose our tempo a little more. Speaking of bad officiating, CU @ Nebraska was possibly the worst I've seen in a CU game.

    i wanted Baylor to lose, but i sort of like watching Aggy lose. screw the farmer cult, their sanctimonious BS (they think they invented rooting for your fave team and wanting them to win) and i won't miss them at all.

    This sucks. Baylor is now 15-7 (5-4), so unless we win today Baylor has pulled ahead. Even worse, they just got their first quality win of the year

    Texas A&M has slipped to 17-5 (4-4) and has lost 4/5. Are the Buffs catching the Aggies at the right time? They're still in fine shape to make the Big Dance, but CU and aTm are level at 4-4 all of a sudden.

    gonna be a bunch of folks at 4-4/4-5 when today is over. Ags have lost 3 in a row. but, they HAVE played Texas twice, too. so, that's off the board.

    Baylor's a different team now that Perry Jones has gotten aggressive. He just might be playing his way into the first Big 12 player drafted (if he leaves).

    All the word down here is that aTM had been playing over their heads to begin the season. I tend to agree. Not only think we're catching aTm at the right time, but we should destroy them in Boulder. Their games vs. UT weren't even close. Yes, UT is a great team (thus far) but Aggy looked downright pathetic in those games. Both of them were over 10 minutes into the first half.

    KU is putting NU away in Lincoln, up 75-57 under 5min. Corn will fall to 15-7 (3-5) with a trip to Baylor next.

    Edit: Indiana doing all they can to lose to Iowa at home, tied 58-58. Hoosiers are so bad, but need them to win for RPI
