Clemson upset UNC last night, that was a shocker.

UConn handled Butler, the Huskies are the best team in it IMO.

Florida Gators blow out Auburn today - nice to see, I despise Auburn and Bruce Pearl and I like the Gators a lot. Gators can score a lot of points.

Good road wins for UConn and UNC today.

Wisconsin has fallen apart, lost 4 in a row including to Rutgers to double digits today.

Kansas beat Baylor in a good game last night. Purdue blew out Indiana.

The Big 12 will likely get around 10 teams in the NCAA tournament - that’s impressive. Very deep and competitive conference.

I'd say 9. Cincinnati needs one more high-profile win. Technically UCF is a QUAD 1 team, but I don't buy it. One more ranked win should do it.

It'd be nice if OU (18-7) could beat Kansas (19-6) this weekend. KU has won like 21 of the last 24 meetings.

Huh. Things have been somewhat quiet in the CBB world this week (excluding Syracuse's big win over UNC [Whoo!]). Well, that is gonna change today, because we'll have a game where Marquette will try to prove that they ARE a Top-5 team against #1 UConn. And Oklahoma/Kansas, and Texas/Houston, and a whole bunch of other stuff in the Top 25!
Oh, and here are the big games outside of the rankings today:

TCU @ Kansas State (12:00)
Florida @ Georgia (1:00)
Samford @ Mercer (2:00)
Cincinnati @ UCF (4:00)
South Carolina State @ Norfolk State (4:00)
McNeese State @ Nicholls (4:00)
Idaho State @ Idaho (5:00)
Syracuse @ Georgia Tech (5:30) [Let's see if the Orange can avoid the hangover]
Utah State @ Colorado State (5:30)
Stanford @ Washington State (6:00)
NC State @ Clemson (7:45)
Yale @ Princeton (8:00)
Oregon @ Oregon State (10:00)

Florida stays hot, beating Georgia in Athens.

Bama hangs 100 on A&M, they have a high octane offense.

Marquette/UConn just underway

UConn demolishes Marquette by 28, dominant performance by the Huskies. They are a very complete, very deep team.

North Carolina handled Va Tech earlier, while Duke beat FSU.

South Carolina shits the bed at home against LSU.

Kansas/Oklahoma is a good game.

So looking at these bracketology's, Gonzaga gets their dick sucked for beating the weakest Kentucky team in recent memory and for beating Toyota Maramont or whoever the fuck, but Cincinnati getting punished for losing to # 10 Iowa State and #3 Houston. But has twice as many QUAD wins, 3 wins over nationally ranked teams ( 2 of them was on the road btw ), and is actually in a real conference.

Seems about right. That's why I don't think beating UCF twice won't move the needle. We usually have to arch our asses for recognition.

If I see Gonzaga, Memphis, Boise State, Nebraska etc all ahead of Cincinnati one more time I might punch something.

(23)Indiana St (22-5), ranked for the first time since Larry Bird (1979), falls short at So Illinois (17-10) 74-69.

Not a bad loss. Conference road games are a bitch.

(5)Arizona 105, Arizona St 60

All 5 guys on the floor for Arizona at the end of the game were white. That hasn't happened since...1966.

Rick Pitino is such trash. Throwing is own players and staff under the bus. I would be mad too if I had to coach in a church league while expecting to get certain players to join but strike out. You can call it the Big East, but you're just putting lipstick on a pig.

With Cincinnati's lost to Oklahoma State, I guess Joe Lunardi and Jerry Palm can breath a sign of relief and don't have to mention them again this season. You're free to put the little precious mid-majors in your at-large brackets.
