Team with major chemistry issues. No bad apples other than arguably one who doesn't play at all, and talent isn't an issue. Troubling signs for the Bennett era.
Oklahoma lost at home in OT to LA Tech. Not a bad loss, really, but it's going to knock the Sooners back. They were sitting there in the Top 30 ahead of teams like Harvard and UCLA that can improve CU's schedule prestige if they get into the Top 25.
On that note, Toledo suffering it's 1st loss (albeit at KU) should also move those teams up.
Tomorrow, we've got 3 teams lurking around the Top 25 who are all playing very dangerous games:
Illinois hosts Indiana
Creighton hosts Marquette
George Washington plays at Kansas State
Within the Top 25, watch out for these:
#3 Ohio State plays at a dangerous Purdue
#11 Villanova plays at an always tough Butler
#14 Louisville plays at a pretty good UCF (how will the Vile respond to Behanan getting kicked off the team?)
#18 Memphis plays at a sometimes good USF
Ohio State managed to make the plays and get a nice win at Purdue.
GW is down 13 at the half to KSU.
Illinois and Indiana are tied at 43 a couple minutes into the 2nd half.
Kansas State whipped George Washington. Hopefully this means that GW has some major issues because they host Georgia on Friday and that would be a great RPI win for the Bulldogs.
Didn't realize Georgia has 2 road games to finish their ooc. They're not top-shelf level, but might surprise in $ec play. They may end up in the 5/6 spot for the conference tourney.
Texas A&M got crushed at home by North Texas. I know the Aggies will think they should attract a big name coach, but they'd do well to look at Mike Rohn. He was an assistant there for 3 years before joining Tad in Boulder. Before that, he was 7 years as an assistant at Wichita State under Turgeon after being a successful Head Coach in the JUCO ranks. aTm had its only real success under Turgeon and it would be smart to go back to that well with Rohn. They'll do the dumb thing and hire someone who will make a splash in the papers, though. And overpay for mediocrity.
UConn lost at Houston. Opens a window for CU to move up in the rankings this week.
Tomorrow, we've got SDSU at CSU. A CSU win would help us in both RPI and the Coach's Poll. Not like I'm gonna cheer for them, but I won't root against them.
Furds win at UConn looking a little less shiny.
Geez Wiscy is killing Northwestern. I mean it's like 47-20 in the second half. Damn, NW offense is awesome lol. Think they had 14 at half.
We've got a game early on in SLC. Who's watching?
Washington beating ASU in Tempe by 17 at half.
Figures - I spent most of yesterday saying how terrible UW is and most of the off-season on how high I was on ASU
Tie game with 2:30 left in Utah
Utah with a 2 point lead but fouls Oregon with 27 seconds left
they were sandbagging.
Going to OT in Utah. Tired Oregon coming to Boulder? They should have plenty of time to rest.
Utah missed a wide open 3 to win
Lets hope for quadruple overtime.
Never seen that happen
Tie game with 18 seconds to go in Utah.
WOW what a crazy ending
Oregon steals the inbounds and wins the game. Utah loses a rough one.
6.5 seconds left in a tie game and the Ducks get the steal and the dunk with 1 second left. Then, Utah inbounds the length of the court to a Utah player all alone but he misses a wide open three to win.
WSU has scored 1 point in 11 minutes. Behind 18-1 against Arizona.
A definite chance WSU doesn't score 20 points. They have 14 points with 9 minutes to go.
Ducks win in OT by 2 70-68
WSU scored 7 points in the first half. How is that even possible?
I don't know and I was making fun of Northwestern for scoring 14 in a half tonight lol.
Some fugly basketball tonite...
