Ken Pomeroy is a living legend, but this game is a good reminder that analytical forecasting is far from bulletproof. Purdue was far from a two or three point underdog in this game.

Why didn't Seton Hall make the tournament again?
Because of Virginia. Who could argue Virginia didn't belong?  ::)

It is what it is at this point and it won’t matter, but lol at the fact that Edey has repeatedly just elbowed Karaban in the face multiple times to clear space down low with no calls.  I think he’s probably gonna end the year with single digit offensive fouls called against him

I truly don't understand how he isn't called on that. Full clear out with his elbow and upper arm.
If you think for one second that I am comparing the USA to China you have bumped your hard.

UConn lost 3 guys to NBA

UConn starts a east Carolina player and a Loyola Marymount player.

How are they doing this?

Because Hurley can coach.  And, so far, it looks like he doesn't cheat.

So the Big Ten has now lost eight straight championship games. The most amazing part is that seven different programs have lost those games. Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan (twice), and now Purdue.

And the thing is, I’m not sure they’ve been favored in ANY of those games. So is that underperformance? Or more just a coincidence?

Smith over Castle was a wild take

Castle just absolutely erased him from this game all half.

I think Illinois were favorites in their game. That team was 37-1 and ranked #1 overall.

They have more NBA level talent AND they are all bought in and playing together for one common goal.  Supreme confidence and great coaching getting all of this to happen.

This is a bit miss leading.

The ECU player, is in his 2nd year at UCONN averaged close to 10, 5 and 5 for a Championship team last year.

The LMU player, was at Rutgers last year, where he averaged double digits while being one of the best 3-point shooters in the nation.

So bottom line, both those players are studs, and were studs before this year.

Yeah that was the one I couldn’t remember. That UNC team was really good.

Spencer was at Loyola MD, not Marymount.

Per Twitter, since "Requiem for the Big East" aired, big East has won the most championships of any conference
