Hopefully I don't jinx anything, but Texas Chaminade is pretty good so far.

This Maui field is so weak that UNC has a legit shot at outscoring their opponents by 100 points in 3 games.

That doesn't excuse the fact that this game is awesome.

I went to bed with about 7 minutes left in the Texas game. Got to the point where Cham was up so much it wasn't worth staying up to see them close it out, and if they blew it, I'd just be depressed.

Maui Invitational has really lost its luster from about 05 when it was by far the biggest pre-season tourney in all of college hoops. I don't think we're ever going to see that tournament bring in a field like Michigan St, Gonzaga, a still solid Maryland, Arizona, Kansas, Arkansas, and UConn again.

Brad Stevens and his Butler program continue to astound, anyone who says Shaka Smart is better, well, I don't agree with them.

No doubt. Back then these 2 or 3 days I always wanted to stay home from school to watch games because I knew they were all going to be great. Now there are SO many tournaments that basically every team plays in some kind of early season tournament doesn't make it that special.

I know a lot of people will hate me for this, but I REALLY hope that Duke finds a way to sign him to be the guy that replaces Coach K when he eventually retires.

Stevens really seems to want to turn Butler into Duke instead. Hey, I'd want to hire him when Beilein retires too.

Well, I'd either want him or an in house replacement. Coach Chris and Woj already look like superb coaches. Well, those guys or Billy Donovan. Love Billy Donovan.

Would love to see Wojo get some hc experience first but he'd be my first choice in house if Stevens says no thanks

I love Wojo's spirit and tenacity, but Coach Chris knows how to recruit. I think he's Coach K's understudy.

So the NCAA upheld the suspensions of Perea and Jurkin:

The NCAA is a complete joke.

If Plumlee keeps playing on this insanely high level, we'll win.

Any particular reason why Ohio State is ranked so high? Their only good player is Craft.

Despite this deficiency, and severe over-ranking, we are all pulling for State Wednesday! Get it done!

"Absolutely not," Craft said when asked whether this was the fourth-best team in the land at this juncture."It was based on what we did last year and what we brought back. We still need to solidify our identity."

That means someone besides Thomas and Craft has to step up and perform.

"You can't lose that and expect to roll along," Matta said. "We've got a long way to go."

Good luck. Non-conference teams don't win in Cameron.

Ok so the Dukies have now beaten Kentucky & Louisville when both were ranked #2. Its time for Coach IX to admit this team is for real no matter how they fare against OSU.
