If you would like to talk about basketball, and not coverage of basketball - post it here. All other items related to news coverage of college basketball will be moved to the other thread. Thank you.

I'll start, Gonzaga or Kansas: who should be the new number 1 team this week?

Duke. Again. 'Nuff said.
The world as we know it underwent a rebirth 11-8-16. Conservatives have made themselves heard!

They just lost to Gonzaga and the Zags were missing one of their best players to boot.

That'll be a tough game for PSU, Buzz has a really good team this year.

So the ACC/Big Ten Challenge finished in a 7-7 tie.

Nine of the 14 games were settled by 5 points or less, and one was settled by 6. Pretty competitive event this year.

Two best teams I saw: Duke and Michigan.

Out of the 28 teams that participated, I don't think PSU is that high. But PSU and Pitt both had impressive showings all things considered.


I know people are down on UVA because of the 16-1 fiasco, but they are still going to be a pain for everyone to deal with this year. That's a team that won't lose many games.

Even with the close loss today it’s easy to see Capel has the young Pitt squad heading in the right direction rather quickly. Hiring the right guy can pay huge dividends. PSU take note.
