    This week I prefer the coaches poll where CU received 1 vote.

    Virginia vs West Virginia in NYC on Tuesday. You won't find a bigger clash of style. UVA never turns the ball over and WVU is called "Press Virginia".

    #7 Oklahoma dominated #9 Villanova 78-55 in Hawaii. Sooners are quality. Not sure Villanova is drastically overrated, they had one of those horrid nights shooting (4/32 from 3, while OU was 14/26).

    Boston College is so bad that it has reached the point that they're using the old "food poisoning" excuse to duck the 40 point beatdown rival Providence would put on them.

    #10 Virginia tops #14 West Virginia 70-54 at the Jimmy V. That was about the worst first half I've seen UVA play in 2 years and WVU forced 19 UVA turnovers (they average 7). So to win by 16...I'll take it.

    Phenomenal game - both teams could be final four teams. WVU is as physical of a team as i've ever seen

    I missed the UVA, WV game, but have watched most of the second half of MD-UConn. UConn made a nice comeback to make it interesting, but Maryland finished them. The biggest takeaway I have though from just about every game I've seen is that the Buffs are capable of beating anyone. I think Iowa St to start the year showed that. Now this doesn't mean I expect them to beat everyone, but with no clear elite team this year, the Buffs are capable of beating anyone.

    That WVU first half was something else, but UVA just methodically beat them into submission. Can't keep that up for 40 minutes. You could see the look on WVU's faces even when the game was still close (6 points or so) with around 7 minutes left. They were defeated and they knew it.

    Surprised to see Creighton favored by 5. They seem to be a shadow of what they were a couple years ago. Nebraska's losses were all to ranked teams. Go Jays

    Welp. Creighton threw away a 14pt lead but are still up by 6 at half. On cbssports if anyone wants to watch. Been decently entertaining.

    Watching UCONN and OSU and just thinking that CU could probably keep up with either of them. That's a good sign.

    Also, their U-C-O-N-N chant is really dumb.

    UConn has a team that can go deep in the Dance this year. Love that young PG.

    Ya they do. They always do. That's probably the one thing missing on CU's roster. Don't have a dynamic PG. Yet.

    This Marquette-Wisconsin game is kick ass for a low scoring one. 48-44 Marquette with under 6 minutes left.

    Marquette gets the 57-55 win. That's a team that figured it out after an awful start to the season. I would not want to play them right now.

    Tennesse @ Butler is a good one right now. Vols trail by 5 at half.

    ASU @ Kentucky just got started. Teams struggling to get any offense going and it looks like UK is starting to figure it out. 12-6 UK after 6 minutes and ASU already has 6 team fouls.
