2015-16 NCAA Basketball

Recommended Posts

Monmouth has now beaten UCLA and Notre dame- best BB school in New Jersey

They have been really good and are led by a former Heel in King Rice.  It's taken him a few years to get it going but winning at Pauley(even though UCLA is down) and beating ND is huge for that program.

Monmouth has gotten a couple of transfers one from Oklahoma big time programs. Rice has good roots from Dean smith - can not beat that

They also beat USC yesterday.  not a great team but another team from a power conference.

Big win for the Heels last night as Marcus Paige made his season debut and looked really good.  this was a great game btw possibly the 2 best teams in the Country.

I despise Maryland thanks to Gary Williams and Greivis Vasquez (not to mention Drew Nicholas aka Satan).  Even though all those guys are long gone, glad you guys knocked them off anyways.

I always liked maryland b/c of the shared hatred of duke but Williams had some tough teams through the years.  I miss them being in the ACC.

Very strange seeing them in the Big 10.  It also can't be easy for them to have to stretch their recruiting efforts into the midwest, but it seems to be working so far.  They have a freshman center from Wisconsin (Diamond Stone) in their starting lineup averaging 9.0 ppg and 3.7 rpg with 7 blocks.

I hate all the conference realignment.  I miss the old days pre crazy BE expansion that started all the realignment.

carolina is very good this yr, should make it to at least elite 8. 1 yr window though. Next yr back to normal average self.

 

Duke is just a top 20 team this yr, sweet 16 is best they will do, lost too much ....plumlee replacing Okafor is all you need to know

Carolina is back to normal now after some tough years due to ridiculous allegations that have not been proven.  soon the NCAA mess will be over and it will be like 2005-2009 again

I assume UK drops to #9 this week after getting whipped by a bad UCLA team?  they dropped Carolina to 9 after a close loss against a tough mid major on the road w/o their best player.

Latest coaches poll. Amazingly UK falls to 4 losing to UCLA pretty soundly while Carolina lost to a good mid major in a close game and fell to 9.

The loss for the Heels on Saturday, there's just something about Texas.  they have the heels #, the ending was controversial, it appeared the GW shot came after the buzzer(and definitely after a shove to Marcus Paige to get the open shot) but Carolina had a million chances and when you let inferior teams hang around this can happen.  Roy's teams always lose games in Nov/Dec they shouldn't and they always get better later in seasons.

Monmouth does it again, this time crushing Georgetown on the road.  they are putting together a resume that will get an at large bid to the Tourney.

what a great day Saturday was.  a big Jet win, Carolina crushes UCLA and duke loses to an unranked team despite all their flopping drawing fouls late in the game to give them a chance.

big game Saturday for the Heels as they travel to Syracuse.  Carolina is head and shoulders better but the emotion in that building w/ the cheater returning from his suspension will be in incredible.  If the heels can find a way to pull this off it will be a great sign.

Great win for the Heels, as expected SU got a huge jolt of emotion w/ Boeheim coming back, almost 27,000 people rocking the Carrier dome and the heels played tough to win going away in the final few minutes.

a great week in CBB, duke loses twice, KU lost, UK lost twice, MSU lost twice(though I like Izzo and MSU, I respect them), the Heels beat State as usual.  Fun week.

 

watching duke lose again on Saturday, it's so frustrating watching them play.  coach K has really ruined basketball w/ all the flopping.  the recent trend for duke players is the headsnap to "sell the foul". it's just awful to watch.  2 examples, one of the traditional duke flop and the 2nd was a player fouling another player and trying so hard to act that he held his face pretending he got hit.  The worst part is the officials fall for this more often than not.

It's especially great because of how pissed off opponents are getting over their celebratory nature.  The Iona coach said "I've never seen them on the court doing anything, so to me, they're not basketball players."  In response, the Monmouth bench busted out some new celebrations in a 110-102 win over Iona:

The Heels should be back to #1 next week back where they belong.

 

Monmouth and Iona played an entertaining game Friday which featured a little postgame violence.  should be a fun rematch in West Long Branch next month.

 

duke list their 3rd straight and as coach K displays his usual sportsmanship at the end.  How that man has duped the Country I will never understand.

So great.

I'd be pissed too, I don't blame opponents for being pissed and I hope this bench celebration thing doesn't catch on elsewhere.

Paige is still in a huge slump but Brice Johnson stepped up again for a big road win at va tech yesterday and the Heels should be the new #1 when the rankings come out this afternoon.  long wait until next game which is Saturday at BC then the sched stiffens w/ a road trip to Louisville a week from tonight.

Amile Jefferson may not come back. :(

That sucks! Jeter is a joke. The recruiting team totally did not evaluate him correctly. 

there goes the season, w/o Amile the great they have no chance.  w/ him they would never lose a game(except for getting dismantled by an average Kentucky team) :lol:

I am enjoying this season, I would never count them out but I am enjoying it and the sched only gets harder from here.  This team has work to do to make the Tourney.

I think after the SEC/Big 12 challenge we can agree the Big 12 has been vastly overrated this season.

Tough loss for the Heels at Louisville, could have opened up a 3 game lead in the ACC but they played poorly and lost.  took way too many 3's rather than pound it inside, they ened to bounce back Saturday at ND.
