  • Western Kentucky had every chance to win that game and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. I am looking forward to watchng FGCU and La Salle play. Both are exciting to watch

You know when one team is down by a few buckets in the last couple minutes, they continue to foul the other team when they get the ball? And then when the team losing gets ball they shoot 3s to try to reduce the lead? Why doesnt the team thats ahead also foul the other team so they cant shoot 3s? In theory the game would just go back and forth with foul shots with the team down a large majority unable to really come back in such a short amount of time.


    Because a 3 point shot is low percentage, and by fouling, you also stop the clock for the opposing team. You're trying to drive down the seconds, not allow the other team to score without losing those precious seconds.

    Nah. Went to Western Oregon University for a few years then transferred and graduated from Warner Pacific College which is a tiny little Christian college in Portland. Life long Ducks fan though.

    The worst part is that after this game, if the Ducks hang on, you'll be in 1st place in our bracket challenge. I'll be in 2nd. Your faith in the Ducks will be the difference.

    Just need to keep it close. Haven't hit anything from within 5 feet, and can't see Wichita State continuing to shoot 60% from 3 in the 2nd half.

  • Great win by Oregon. I have been on the losing end of every close game so far. Gonzaga, Davidson, Butler, Saint Mary's, Wisconsin - none of them are getting it done when it counts for my bracket. *Sigh*

  • He's good, no doubt. Completely dominated and willed his team to win in their first game, and looks good again today. Just something about him...

    Really looking forward to this Florida Gulf Coast, San Diego State game.

    They remind me of the Sherman Douglas, Derrick Coleman, STeven Thompson Syracuse teams of the late 80's. They were always ooping it up, and were the first college basketball team I ever paid attention to.
