Unranked Florida crushes #6 Tennessee by 26. Sometimes you're the dog,  sometimes you're the hydrant

Haha. That’s a fun saying. I’m using that.

Also great game by Duke. They def look like a team that deserves a spot over MU if it came down to it. 😳

Freshman Jaden Ivey with the 1v1 step back 3 game winner for a young Purdue team at Ohio St. He had 15. He's getting a lot of good experience as a Freshman.

Ivey is a nice story of an under recruited guard out of South Bend, didn't get many offers, until Purdue offered him after their camp. That was his first big offer and he took it. (Some others tried to come in late.)

We’ve moved on, but yes, yes he would be. He was an All American (first in 25 years) even before that run, and lottery pick. Everyone knew how special he was.

If D-Wade had back-to-back, first-round losses - with the second coming as a No. 3 seed and largely because he played quite poorly - I don't think he'd be quite as revered.

Thankfully, we'll never get to find out if that is true! Love me some D-Wade.

What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Yep. He felt MU had run up the score on one of his USF teams, and hinted that someday they'd be the dog. It never happened.

There were 15 games scheduled for tonight involving top 25 teams. As of right now, 11 have been postponed and only four are still scheduled to proceed.

I'm not seeing your numbers. I only see 11 scheduled games involving top 25 teams and 9 of them being cancelled. Still brutal though. One small consolation, it looks like other than X at UConn, all the postponed games were likely to be laughers.

#5 Texas at Iowa State (88 spot difference in KenPom)
Tulsa at #8 Houston (71)
Northwestern at #10 Wisconsin (57)
#12 Texas Tech at TCU (83)
NC State at #13 Virginia (55)
Boston College at #16 Virginia Tech (55)
#17 Minnesota at Nebraska (103)
Xavier at #23 UConn (22)
#25 Saint Louis at UMass (72)

Yeah. Seems like the numbers are slightly different on every different website or app I look at (ESPN, CBS Sports, the Score, etc.). It might that some sites remove a previously scheduled game from the day’s schedule when it gets moved to another day(?), while others don’t. Hard to keep track anymore.

Either way, I agree it’s brutal.

We all hoped this wouldn't be the case.  But deep in our hearts, we knew there would be stretches like that.   COVID is relentless.

To be fair,  Cal brought his best player, BJ, Boston,  off the bench after starting him every other game this season.  Replaced him with a guy averaging 13 minutes a game. Boston scored 18 off the bench. Nor sure why cal made that move.

Still,  16 points from 4 starters and a rotation guy is still impressively bad

Yeah, you can also make the argument that for whatever reason Boston not being a starter is why he played better.......for some reason that move worked.

But the other 4 guys played 113 mins(56.5%) and scored 16 pts(26%). Still don't think you see output like that much if ever haha

The Great Bobby Hurley choked away a game to Arizona, partly because he kept letting his PG dribble forever before missing desperation shots.

Purdue player tests positive for Covid. He will miss three games. No pause for Purdue. This is probably the wrong approach but speaks to why the BE has seemingly struggled more than other major conferences to get the games in.

Was looking forward to seeing how Cade Cunningham did against Baylor today ... but he’s out with COVID-19.

They only said he was out.  Anyone who said "with Covid" is suggesting something that OSU didn't say.

And OK State is still competitive through 25 minutes.   Pretty good team.

Had to rewind it. The CBS Sports boardcast said, (COVID-19 Protocal)

It was fun for 30 minutes.   Ok State too shorthanded, Baylor too good.

Bad day for MU. Lots of bubble teams grabbing good wins. Syracuse, Maryland and Oklahoma all get wins over ranked teams.

OK State’s zone is more aggressive and more extended than almost any you’ll see. It definitely through off a very veteran Baylor, but they finally figured it out and are on an absolute roll. Baylor’s man to man defense is so good. Really would’ve loved to see a Baylor vs. Gonzaga game.
