    12/13 and 12/14 recap

    A little oddity happened today: 5 months after I did my last post on my "3rd annual College Football Preview thread", I get 2 posts on it out of the blue. I guess some people STILL want to mock me for my ringing Notre Dame endorsement...
    Anyway, here's what happened over the last 2 days:

    Tuesday:
    Villanova over Temple 78-57
    LSU over North Carolina Central 70-66
    Monmouth over Memphis 82-79 (Heyyyy! Maybe Monmouth could be great for the 2nd year in a row!)

    Wednesday:
    Baylor over Southern 89-59
    Arizona over Grand Canyon 64-54
    Northwestern over Chicago State 68-64 (Almost a BIG "Whoopsie" loss for the Wildcats.)
    East Tennessee State upsets Mississippi State 67-65 (Whoopsie)
    UIC over DePaul 80-75 (...Yeah, let's just scratch DePaul from the NCAA's right now.)

    That DePaul/St Johns cripple fight for last place in the Big East is going to be epic.

    Monk is a stud, but Fox is the key to me. Cal will have the ball in his hands come March, he's simply to fast and athletic to be covered.
    UNC has all they need to go to the FF, PG, a year in JJ, and a size

    12/20 and 12/21 recaps

    In the CBB world last night, we had a mixture of good and bad. The good was that excellent Kentucky vs. Louisville game. But the bad was at the Carrier Dome... and I really don't want to talk about it.
    So to get my mind off of that, I'll see what else happened over the last 2 days:

    Tuesday:
    Creighton over Arizona State 96-85
    Oregon over Fresno State 75-63 (Hey, remember when we were all panicking over Oregon starting 2-2? Now they've won 9 straight.)
    Georgia over Georgia Tech 60-43
    Toledo over Loyola-Chicago 74-70
    Northeastern over Oakland 61-59
    Iowa over North Dakota 84-73

    Wednesday:
    Duke over Elon 72-61 (Oh, Grayson Allen. What ARE we going to do with you?)
    Virginia over California 56-52
    Clemson over South Carolina 62-60
    (BIG win for Clemson! Those guys are ready for ACC play.)
    Indiana State over Eastern Illinois 88-85 in 2-OT's
    Florida over Little Rock 94-71 (You know, Florida debuted their new revamped arena in this game.)
    Illinois over Missouri 75-66
    Dayton over Vanderbilt 68-63
    Georgia State over Middle Tennessee 64-56 (Whoopsie)
    Auburn over Oklahoma 74-70 (Nice bounce-back for the Tigers!)
