Using the transitive BBall principle
« on: November 20, 2010, 10:36:03 PM »
UW-GB hung tough with San Diego State today (79-70 SDSU), and SDSU look good in their win against Gonzaga earlier this week. (79-76 SDSU played @ Gonzaga).

Therefore, since we beat UW-GB by 20 points, SDSU beat them by 9 points, and beat Gonzaga by 3 points, in a head to head against Gonzaga, MU would win by 14 points.

Of course, for Duke, I've got no mathematics.  For them, we'll just have to play a good game, and force them into a bad game.  Then, everything's cool as long as Gonzaga can knock of K-state :)

Actually if we extend things one level:

MU beat Bucknell by 11
Bucknell beat Binghamton by 28
Binghamton beat Colgate by 2

That puts us 41 points better than Colgate.

Unfortunately, Colgate lost to Duke by 52.
