Gotta get the split 2-2 with Providence. The Big East still only has bad loss which is much better than ACC/PAC12/SEC/B1G.

But we need to get more good wins

In 2019-2020, the Big East went 103-25 OOC. That's a 80.5% win percentage. To get the equivalent win percentage, the league would need to go 98-23. I like round numbers so that's why I said at the beginning 100-21 should be the goal. 60 wins to go.

Kalkbrenner is effective for Creighton against the mid majors, but he’s going to get dominated by Big East frontlines — particularly ours. On the plus side, Creighton’s freshmen look really good, Nembhard could be a future all conference player. Future is bright in Omaha but they’re going to struggle this year

Agree I wanted to see more from Kalk this year, he is too weak and too slow to have the impact I was hoping for. Not sure he can hang in the league like I hoped.

Were going to have major growing pains. If we can keep this core together I love the talent, but this is the least experienced group in a long long time.

I am hoping for an NIT bid this season. I'll be shocked if they aren't in the bottom half of the league, but we have beaten our preseason rank every year in the BE so hoping to get to 7th to keep that up. Lots of work to do.

This'll be the hardest week of the non-conf (other than B12 chalenge). Cupcake city for most teams after Sunday.

Butler can't hold on to the ball vs Texas A&M. Right now, 13 TOs against 17 shots taken; got off only three shots in their last 12 possessions!

EDIT: Halftime TA&M 33 - Butler 21.

With Nze, Hodges and Tate out (combined 26.3 ppg last season), I thought Butler had no chance going into the game.

I don't like betting on Big East games, but I took Texas A&M (-2.5) and adding Murray State (-600) and Liberty (-2000) MLs to build a three leg +133 parlay.

Between Buzz Williams, Hassan Diarra (hasn't played yet), Javonte Brown and Tyrece Radford, plenty of reason to like Texas A&M this season where I don't feel bad rooting for them to cover against a Big East team.

St. John's not looking so great so far.
St Francis is owning the boards. Ridiculous sequences of them getting multiple shots on many possessions to open 2nd half.

They just showed a stat: St Francis 21 2nd chance pts vs 2 for SJU. Johnnies still only down 4 though.

Some crazy stats so far:

FG%: St. John's 54.9%, SFBK 44%
TOs: St. John's 7, STBK: 16

Despite this, Johnnies up only by 1 w/ 6 to go.

He's singlehandedly keeping them in the game. No slouch on defense.

Fair enough I just turned it on before and he was definitely not playing defense he was on the other end. But can’t go by one basket hanging play.

I didn't catch the names of the St. John's/St. Francis BK announcers, but they were cracking me up. Sounded like two guys watching the game at the bar just putting back beers.

Back to Providence/Virginia. Interesting that two of the game's best players, Franklin for Virginia and Durham for Providence, played at Indiana last year. On another note, Noah Horchler is a ton of fun to watch. He's a do-everything 4 who has great energy and passion for the game. Easy kid to root for, reminds me of Whaley a bit. Fun to watch Gardner too, always liked him at ECU and glad he's getting a chance to play in a better conference.
