    If LaVar Ball wasn’t his father he would still be at UCLA.

    Yeah, probably.

    I’m going to MSG for Nova/Zags and UConn/Cuse tonight. It was really pricey, but it should be great. The Nova/Zags game should be really good, and the atmosphere for the UConn/Cuse game should be electric.

    I just came up with a fantastic punishment for Rick Pitino: he can still coach in the NCAA but it has to be at Rutgers.

    If LaVar Ball wasn't his father he wouldn't have been at UCLA to begin with.

    This.

    He only got to UCLA because the old man wanted both of them at UCLA.

    Sadly, the little one won't get much play in other pro leagues.

    They lost Hayes and Koenig and the junior class (when Bo announced he was retiring and nobody knew who the coach was going to be) is complete ****.

    Watching UCLA/Michigan. Both teams are wearing short shorts. Not like hip-huggers, but shorts that don't even come to the knee.

    I would prefer the shorter shorts trend is on it's way out. And while we are at it, can we make the jerseys look more like jerseys than tank tops?

    I had ballistic sky high expectations for Indiana under Archie Miller but they have been very underwhelming. I'll be willing to give him a little time but I'm not impressed with what I've seen so far!

    Louisville doesn't even need Bowen to succeed. Cards boy.

    It looked like they'd be run out of the gym after the first few minutes, but Holder, Evans and Martin carried the team. They should be in the top 10 when the new polls come out tomorrow.

    When the game first started I was thinking "Welp, good run." But they battled, and should be proud of the way they played. Battled hard and won. Even with Justice being silent.

    Winning in Phog is an impressive feat by any team. Congrats to the, at the time, #16 Sun Devils. This win should help get a boost to the standings.

    The AP Top 25 Poll

    Up to 5th in the country (and even got some first place votes)!

    Their next three games are very winnable against not so great competition. And then comes the game in Tucson, which is only on the Pac-12 Network... grrrrr...

    Exciting time to be a Sun Devil fan. I loved that they had people welcoming the team back home last night. I bet those kids were on cloud 9.

    ^Who cares...

    Northwestern has made more threes than Chicago State has points.

    Chicago State might be on its way out of college athletics altogether.
