Duke and Kansas are a combined 4 for 36 from distance.  But of course they have bigs that can dominate.

And their season ended last year with a 1-point loss to Virginia in the ACC Tournament. Now 4 straight 1-point losses for the Ville.

On top of losing out on DJ Wagner to Kentucky, after Payne hired Wagner's grandfather to the hoops staff, and #1 recruit Aaron Bradshaw to UK as well.

Maybe Kenny Payne should be the one and done after this season. He's in over his head.

how could KenPom get it so wrong using data from last seasons team performance to predict this season?


TCU has dropped from preseason #16 in KenPom to #58 in 3 games. I don't know that I've seen a team drop that quickly before

Bad loss today.  I looked at their non-con schedule after they missed the Dance last year.  Pretty terrible again

I’m guessing most of the schedule was done by Selection Sunday last year. Otherwise, you’d think he’d learned his lesson.

Utah lost to Sam Houston St.  Monday and Wednesday are very important games for us.

No, it didn’t, but Sam Houston isn’t a HBCU

Yea that wasn’t in the Pac12-SWAC challenge.

But the challenge was brutal. Texas Southern over ASU.  Prairie View over Washington St.  And most shockingly, Grambling over CU in Boulder

Surprised he didn't get in a fight with Arizona State's coach at the end of the game. Yeah, a surprise but not on the same level as UT blowing out the Zags. In both the UT game and the MSU game, the Zags lacked their usual calm, cool style. They looked rattled. And then there is Buzz. Murray State messed with his happy. Maybe he will write a nine page letter explaining how his team got screwed by the refs.

The Athletic's "experts" predict Houston will win the national title, with Gonzaga close behind in the voting.

Other contenders: Baylor, UNC, Arkansas, Duke, Kentucky, Texas.

Here's what those picking Houston had to say:

The Cougars won 32 games last year. They made it to the Elite Eight, pushing Villanova to the brink. And they did that with Marcus Sasser playing all of 12 games. Now imagine what Houston can do with Sasser back, plus Jamal Shead, Tramon Marks, Reggie Chaney, plus two stud freshmen in Jarace Walker and Terrance Arceneaux? Oh, and Kelvin Sampson is still the coach. Gonzaga and Houston are the only two teams to rank in Ken Pomeroy’s top 10 in offense in defense the last two years. Don’t be surprised to see that matchup in the final this year. — Dana O’Neil

With a roster roiled by injuries to massively important players, all Houston did last year was finish in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency, while winning 32 games and reaching the Elite Eight. What happens when Sampson works with a full cupboard? Because Sasser and Mark are back, joined by five-star freshman Walker. I’m taking a risk that the injury issues won’t reoccur … but what fun is making a safe pick anyway? — Brian Hamilton

This will be the toughest team in the country to play against. They’re physical at the point of attack and all of their guys play with an exceptional motor. On top of that, they have the high-upside talent now with potential first-round picks in Sasser, Walker and Arceneaux. — Sam Vecenie

The Cougars are loaded; they have everything you need to win a national championship. They have big-game experience, with three star guards, a future potential lottery pick in Walker and are hard to prepare for in the way they defend/rebound. Bringing back Sasser, Mark, and Shead is huge, as they are arguably the best backcourt in the country. Lastly, they have an advantage that many haven’t considered. They battled a ton of injuries a year ago and bring back the majority of their roster, meaning their reserves have big game experience along with depth. — Tobias Bass

Sampson’s team is tough as nails and has arguably the best guard in the country coming back in Sasser. — Austin Meek
Agree with all of the above, but I am very sorry for the delay in my response. That non cheating team (seriously, Tower, its been 5 years!) of 2022 WS Champs Houston Astros has hogged my attention. Add the Dusty re-signing, James Click departure, and Verlander Cy Young...well their news has lingered.

  My "Hou" in HouWarrior is my law school alma mater of UH. I was there during early 80s Phi Slamma Jamma and Guy V Lewis was a lifelong friend and sometime client. Elvin Hayes, Don Chaney, Otis Birdsong, Akeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler have thrilled the historical fanbase. But....We suffered for decades in coaching turnover, conference realignments and aging Hofheinz pavilion facilities.

 After years/decades in the desert, ....UH Basketball finally got big facilities $ from Tillman Fertitta, took a flyer on a former NCAA coach who happened to be here in town working with the NBA Rockets, in Kelvin Sampson, and over the recent years UH Basketball has returned to national prominence.

 Now you are seeing Sampson's system (defense/rebounding/up tempo) take root and the local recruiting tap is back on. Local Houston kids who were poached to programs all over the USA, are back to at least giving UH a recruiting shot. We'll never see a repeat of Guy V's local kids (Drexler, Young, Gettys, Michaeux, etc) plus a flyer on the "Akeem" kid from Africa... but repeat returns to Final Four seems reachable.

UH has 6 final fours but zero championships (Please dont say Valvano--I will cry). There are so many factors and variables, but UH'ers are sentimentally vested to win it all this year, making lucky no 7 FF the one that gets over that hump. Maybe we can ask Dusty Baker to come to the key games for his mojo.

If you get a chance to watch UH on TV you will see some very good play.

 Go Coogs!!

Good for you Houwarrior.  You’ve gotten to watch some good basketball lately.  Shows the importance of a good coach who stays for a while.  Hopefully Shaka gives you two programs to puff your chest out about shortly. MU seems a couple years away but Shaka seems like he can build something. 

How is NIL Money for the Houston basketball team.  I assume pretty good?

Houston doesn't seem to have any real weaknesses and they're a defense first team.  It's early but they may go from the favorite to heavy favorite to cut the Nets.

Those "Nets" are in also Houston, as the Final Four in early April 2023 is in Houston, at NRG Stadium

For the first time, the Final Four will have 4 "host" schools...Houston Baptist University, Rice University, Texas Southern University and University of Houston will be co-hosts.

 I have to research/verify, but I have a suspicion no "host" school has ever won an NCAA Final Four it also "hosted"...bad karma for UH, there.
