    @LETTERL will be thrilled to know that Nicholls is actually leading in the 3rd quarter of its in-state rivalry game vs. Louisiana-Monroe. The Colonels of Nicholls are eyeing their first win over a D1 team this season. Now showing live on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/nichollsathletics/live...

    ACC and SEC: overrated

    They can jump out of the gym, but their ball-handling is a work in progress.

    Ha I take it that was before their 6-game losing streak :cool:

    I just have to say, I love that picture of Fargas. It cracks me up every time I see it.

    DTH: New culture helps North Carolina to best start in years

    :D I will withhold my judgment of this Carolina team until they play teams better than Missouri and Temple. Because while the culture may have changed, the cupcake schedule is still all Hatchell.

    ACC and SEC: overrated

    And yet he says in his article that it'd be very unlikely to end up with 11. I guess he's just getting carried away with the challenge results? But to some extent he's onto a trend. A few years ago the Big Ten was really heavy with teams in the 35-70 range. Now many of them have crept up more...

    SEC 2019-2020 discussion

    Arkansas couldn't even beat a Cal team that was decimated by graduation needed a big comeback late just to beat Wisconsin on a neutral court.

    Pac-12 very high expectations

    But seeding isn't primarily about number of losses. Notre Dame had 3 losses last year (including one to North Carolina) and were still the overall #2 seed, ahead of 2-loss teams like UConn and MS State. Rather than looking at how many losses they'll mutually inflict, we should be thinking of...

    Megans growth to Success

    Certainly an appropriate moniker considering how often UConn's had only a 6-player rotation in recent years.

    surprising freshmen

    St. John's freshman Leilani Correa scored 33 points tonight in a win over Army, tying the program record for most points in a game by a freshman. She's now averaging 14 ppg and shooting 49% on the season.

    UConn #2 in New AP Poll

    Shameless plug alert: People with strong and/or informed opinions about where teams should or shouldn't be ranked tend to make excellent voters in the biweekly Boneyard Top 25 poll. Next round of balloting due in one week, on Dec. 16 :cool:

    How long ago was the PAC 12 the weak sisters of the WCB?

    Can we refrain from conflating conference supremacy with the team championship? Surely no one would argue the AAC was the "dominant" conference in 2014-16 just because UConn won the title those years.

    Other games, Dec. 9-15

    Our friend @DefenseBB pointed out the FGCU game tonight vs. an NAIA team. Well, there's another game I'm checking in on: St. John's is up 57-25 at halftime over Army, and even more impressively, freshman Leilani Correa has a career-high 25 points in just the first half, on 9-11 shooting...

    One good game tonight Dec 9 ESPN+

    Ha well I have generally tried to avoid including cupcake games, and that would almost always include games against non-D1 opponents, unless it's some powerhouse like Lubbock Christian. FGCU is hosting Florida Memorial, an NAIA school in Miami Gardens, FL, that plays in the Sun Conference. I...

    Notre Dame Under Water (5-6)

    I hope DePaul rains 3s on them like James Harden and Steph Curry on their career best nights. And turns them over so many times that Muffet feels like a tall stack of pancakes. And beats them by 50. That would really trigger the anticipation for the UConn-DePaul game.

    Kinda reminds me of how University of Houston and Texas Southern University are separated by literally only a few city blocks. I added the Battle of the Boro. Couldn't find any broadcast or streaming info on either team website. Hopefully you'll live-report ?

    UConn #2 in New AP Poll

    Believe it or not, Arizona's OOC schedule was even worse last year, and it may have been the thing that kept them from an at-large bid. I vaguely recall it being stated, maybe on one of the game broadcasts, that her plan was to gradually upgrade the schedule as her team got better. Certainly...

    The excitement takes a bit of a dip this week; not nearly as many compelling games, with a lot of teams taking exam breaks. Monday, Thursday and Friday are particularly quiet days. Tues., Dec. 10 Villanova at Temple (5p, live stream). Crosstown rivalry game. Can the Owls build on their...

    In reviewing your list again, wasn't the '96 semifinal vs. Tennessee also an overtime loss?

    I of all people certainly mean no slight on Geno. I just find it statistically bizarre. No need for umbrage.

    ACC and SEC: overrated

    Imagine if Wake Forest had played in the challenge instead of Louisville or Florida State. Then it would've been 10-4 :cool:

    Notre Dame Under Water (5-6)

    Didn't the 2018 semifinal vs. ND also go to OT? If so, that would be 0-7 in the last 7?

    AP Top 25

    Clearly Baylor is a completely different team depending on whether Cox is on the court. Last year's NCAA final should be proof enough, where Baylor went from firmly in control with a double-digit lead over ND to losing the lead in all of about 3 minutes after Cox got injured.

    Megan Walker - Wooden Award early favorite

    She has an edge too. Surely I wasn't the only one who noticed her demeanor toward Sniezek after she collected a steal and breakaway and-1. One of the refs even stepped in to apparently caution her :)

    Yeah, saw her on the bench in the Bahamas games. Staff has a puke pumpkin orange flavor, with both DeMoss and Butts.

    Notre Dame Under Water (5-6)

    Holy cow lol. Even longer than since the last time Notre Dame had a losing record (Dec. 2003). Dare I ask how many OT losses UConn has experienced since then?
