Umm I'd argue nobody in the conference has underperformed more than Cooley. He had a ridiculous couple classes the likes of which Providence has never seen and didn't go anywhere

He won a Big East title in 2014. St. John's and Georgetown can't get out of the first round unless it's against each other.

Oregon playing Seton Hall . Game at Creighton. Not sure why.

Playing in an empty arena. If fans were allowed the game would be sold out.

Given to lack of other significant non-conference wins, I feel like our BEast brethren all owe us a thank you card.

The courage to change the things I can,

SH looking very meh against a fellow meh Oregon team.  Think Mamu is having a tough transition from Robin to Batman, Powell opened a lot of space for him, and McKnight was able to find him.  Without them... 

UCONN gets an untested NC State team, and I'd take Nova over the fighting Shaka's this weekend.  Great opportunity to see if CU is real next week too.  Opportunities are still there, teams just gotta take em.

I find it amusing that DePaul still hasn't played a game.

If Seton Hall can’t somehow manage to come back here against Oregon then this Big East start somehow gets even uglier. Thank god for those Marquette fellows holding the fort

SH falls to Oregon, and IMO the final flattered SH.  They had a chance to cut it to a 1 possession game early in the 2nd half, but it just never felt like they could maintain any momentum.  Until Aiken comes back it looks like they're only going 7 deep.  I have no idea how bad his injury is, and you never wish for someone to get hurt, but if he's still out when they come to MKE in 2 weeks, I won't complain.

Seton Hall was 14-24 from 3 and still lost by double digits. That doesn't happen often.

Of course winning when you go 10-28 from inside the arc doesn't happen often either.

Have you compared that against his classes and what his preseason rankings were? Just saying I really don't feel like he's been good

Considering Providence was a perennial doormat, he's been great. Though his job does get notably harder with UConn back in the Big East.

Providence went 1-15 from 3 today and David Duke and Nate Watson combined to score 61% of the Friars points in a 12 point win over lowly Fairleigh Dickinson. They were tied at half and Providence didn't extend the lead to double digits until there was about 10 minutes left. From there the lead fluctuated between 8-14 points as the Friars never really pulled away.

Of course, if Cooley keeps up his trend he'll limp into Big East play, start off terrible and win 7 of 8 down the stretch to eek into the NCAAs. Knowing our luck, we'll play them twice during that 8 game stretch.

I believe several Scoopers showed that he is far more likely to go 4-4 at best in that stretch.

I’d love to play Cooley’s team twice then.

IIRC, it's a family name. He's like David Duke IV or something like that.

Nice road win for ‘Nova.

Nova has a lot of ways to beat you.

Though some are lionizing Gillespie, I think he is a step below several of their other hyped PGs over the years, most notably Brunson, Arcidiacono and Lowry. Obviously, that doesn't mean he's not good, since those guys were great college PGs.

If our bigs set good screens up top and roll to the hoop, and if our guards quickly look to pass to our bigs on the post, we will get some really good mismatches of Lewis, Garcia and/or Theo on Gillespie or Swider, because Nova switches everything. Texas was a little too slow to recognize and take advantage of that. (Musta been the bad coaching - ha!)

Also, there is absolutely no reason to ever leave Swider open from 3. He is like a freshman Novak -- he won't beat anybody off the dribble, and he has one and only one role. An opponent can always take away a stationary 3-point shooter if it wants to; with Swider, we should want to.

Not sure how we're gonna contain JRE, and Moore is a big, strong, talented guard.

I think he looks great in comparison cause Daniels is not a lead guard at all at this point. So whenever Gillespie sits or doesn’t have the offense running through him, they really struggle offensively.

In other news, I watched Georgetown the first half today against WVU. Score aside, they stink. They look like a very good team at the Y. Very athletic, long, look the part. But play out of control, brick tons of shots, don’t finish well.
