    Northwestern had 4 whites on the floor (and one octaroon) when I tuned in tonight to see them play Minnesota (who themselves played two whiteys).

    That was a helluva game, constantly watching Notre Dame's white players schooling the Pitt blacks.

    Michigan's Zack Novak has been deadly from 3 point range and is a big reason why Michigan is leading Michigan State by ten at this point.

    Nbadraft.net has Ben Hansbrough going 29th to the Celtics.
    With the Celtic's 2nd round pick they have them taking Tim Abromitis.

    Notre Dame looks good and should go far in the tournament.
    Duke looks like the favorite to win it all and BYU looks like it could make a deep run (Elite 8 or Final Four).

    Will Sheehy!

    Have been waiting for this Indiana freshman to break out. 6-5 long, rangy, bouncy athlete now started two games. Watching rebroadcast of Illinois/Indiana game, and he has two first-half dunks. Gus Johnson yelling, "The athletic Will Sheehy!"

    Now Jordan Hulls carrying IU with a mini-Jimmer performance, creating his own jumper trip after trip.

    Nikola Vucevic had 26 points and 12 rebounds in USCs win at Arizona State!

    Mickey McConnell had 27 points, including the game-winner, in St. Mary's win at Gonzaga!

    there were a TON of upsets in college basketball today, highlighted from a CF perspective by BYU falling to New Mexico after their emotional win against San Diego Stateand Saint Mary's getting knocked off by a very-White Portland team.

    Northwestern missed a three-pointer at the buzzer, or the Wildcats would have knocked off #1 Ohio State ... and they did it with their best player (Shurna) in street clothes after a concussion in their last game. it was a very fun game to watch.

    in a contest of two very dark teams, Rotnei Clarke scored 36 points (in 33 minutes) in Arkansas' upset on the road against #22 Vanderbilt. the oft-injured Michael Sanchez (usually only a glue guy) added 20 points off the bench in the Razorback win.

    Florida lost to Mississippi State! [​IMG] I guess Al Horford's and Joakim Noah's don't grow on trees!

    This is exactly what racialists need to recognize about basketball. Most blacks are simply average, or worse, and there's many many "disappointing blacks with long arms." If there is/was an army of "top Bell Curve blacks" - I ask - why doesn't Florida just get them then?! Because there isn't an army! Even Texas, and other "big" programs, have had their share of underwhelming blacks' over the years. And, year in and year out, you have teams like VA Tech and Tennessee (and others) that are pretty damn small. How is that possible? There's no shortage of blacks in the VA/MD/DC area!
    _____________________________________________

    Florida State got blitzed today.. I personally don't think Chris Singleton is "that great." In my breakdown of black bigs, that's why I used the word "solid" for Florida State, referring to Singleton and Bernard James (grabs some key rebounds); Jon Kreft has been alright as well.

    Right now, I'm not really sold on John Henson who is rather soft, and a 30-something Antonio McDyess moves around the basket quicker than Henson!! Just kind of an awkward kid who the "nut-huggers" - especially one CBS Sportsline "writer" - just LOVES...

    In the breakdown post, the Syracuse big I was talking about, but failed to name, is Rick Jackson. Syracuse has been struggling, but Jackson is still a presence in the middle. He's a tough big, with some skill, that any team would want to have on their roster.

    I didn't miss much, at least from the "big" programs, in that breakdown post. However, Draymond Green did go unmentioned.. he's a good college player, but I don't see him as a tough-as-nails "DeJuan Blair-type."

    Of course, there are other bigs in college basketball.. and they are just too "generic" (and inconsistent) to even mention. Right now, I'm not going to "breakdown" Renardo Sidney (Miss. State), "super-athletic" C.J. Leslie (NC State), Alex Stephenson (USC), "super-athletic" Frazier on Georgia, etc.

    I'm not saying that none of them could possibly "develop" - but I'm tired of the annointment - especially when guys like Leslie appear to be literally starving... ha

    (GreatLakeState mentionedthe following playera few posts up in this thread and quoted a great story that's worth the reading.)

    Ohio State freshman point guard Aaron Craft was likely the reason that #1 OSU didn't fall to a game Northwestern bunch on Saturday. coming off the bench, as he always does, Craft sparked the Buckeyes and provided a small scoring cushion that ultimately proved decisive. he scored 13 points on 5-6 shooting, had a couple of rebounds and assists, and played stellar defense. he also provided a highlight pass for a dunk on his first touch of the ball. while the talking heads emphasized Sullinger's point total even though he didn't play with his usual toughness, it was Craft who gave the edge to OSU as they escaped.

    Aaron Craft is definitely a talented youngster to keep an eye on.

    Dang, I saw Wisconsin lost yesterday as well to Penn State. The Badgers were out scored 36-23 in the second half. Jon Leuer had 18 points in the loss.

    Kyle Kuric came off the bench and scored 15 points for Louisville in a double OT win against UConn.Edited by: Jack Lambert

    Not a whole lot of "talent" out there. Jimmer Fredette is the best by far. Kyle Singler is up there too.
    Ben Hansbrough is good too. He is a good shooter and he is tough.
    The "affletic" Jared Sullinger is solid but he isn't in the best of shape. He is not in the same league as Blake Griifin,
    Kevin Love, or even Dejuan Blair. I don't see him dominating anything. If he is the top pick in the draft then it is a pretty bad draft.

    The draft this year should be based on who will fit in the system and who fills a need. Mostly role players, at best, coming out of this draft.
    If a team came away with Fredette and Jon Leur out of this draft then that team would win.

    Indiana gets whiter every game. Just beat Minnesota at home, after great win last week over Illinois and tough OT loss at MSU. Junior point guard Jordan Hulls has really gotten good.

    Not sure how many of you get the Big Ten Network, but there are worthwhile white players to see for IU, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Purdue, Illinois ... haven't seen Penn State, the white guys who play the most for MSU are walkons.Edited by: GreatLakeState

    Notre Dame, and its core contingent of talented White athletes, has risen to #8 in the national polls. [​IMG]


    unheralded Boston College face-up power forward Joe Trapani has been playing some very good basketball of late. in his most recent contest for the Golden Eagles, Trapani had 25 points, 15 boards, 3 assists, and 2 blocked shots. he was the only BC player who showed up to play against North Carolina.

    for the Tarheels, Tyler Zeller had 18 points on only 7 field goal attempts. get him the ball more! jeez!

    Chandler Parsons, possibly the most intriguing White pro prospect in the college game today (a 6-10 point forward), carried the Gators against Vandy. Parsons had 18 points (6-13 from the floor), 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, and only 1 turnover. this kid is very, very athletic.

    it is currently halftime of an always-good game between rivals Duke and Maryland. after Duke took a BIG early lead, it seemed like the game was slipping away from the (unfortunately-black) Terps ... but they came storming back. the Plumlee brothers and Kyle Singler have played well thus far.

    please forgive the double post, but i forgot to mention the latest anti-White vitriol from the ever-loathsome Jay Bilas, himself a former White basketball player for Duke.

    the latest "insightful commentary" from Bilas was the snide, condescending comments belittling Maryland's 6-6 freshman forward Haukur Palsson. the reason for the insults? Palsson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland. oh! what a worthy reason for putting down a young player! among his contemptuous jibes, Bilas slimed "He is definitely the best Icelandic player ever in the ACC." then laughed. for a couple of minutes. yeah. so funny, it was.

    i'd like to kick Bilas where his balls should be.

    Singler is red hot for the Blue Devils tonight. that quickly elicited more laughs from Bilas as Singler scored coming off a screen over the outstretched fingertips of Palsson ... "yeah," *laughs* "You don't have to go against players like that in Iceland." *more laughter*

    as if giving up a bucket to the all-American, PoY candidate Singler is something to be ashamed of.

    to Palsson's credit, however, he came right back down and hit a jumper in Singler's eye. i'm liking what i'm seeing out of the youngster. that dagger shut Bilas up real quick ... and then, Bilas at least backtracked slightly, "That'll teach me to laugh at Icelandic basketball." of course, his remorse didn't last long, as Singler scored again on the next trip down the court. "Iceland is hot, but Oregon is hotter."

    i mean, that doesn't even make any sense. meh.

    Ben Hansbrough is (IMO) looking like a lesser version Jimmer Fredette. Like Jimmer is to BYU, Ben is the engine that drives Notre Dame. I hope both are NBA bound, there is (IMO) a serious need for white American PG's to the NBA.

    Duke is looking very good in the early going. Kyle Singler is quietly putting together a very good year.

    # 13 Louisville (17-5), despite all their many injuries, is a 19-point favorite tonight over lowly DePaul. Mike Marra, Kyle Kuric, and Stephen Van Treese should get plenty of playing time. In addition, due to aforementioned injuries, Coach Pitino says that Tim Henderson will start tonight. Should be interesting: the first all-white backcourt that Louisville has started in at least twenty-five years. It can seen online on espn3.com.

    Duke is absolutely <STRIKE>steam rolling</STRIKE> <STRIKE>cream rolling</STRIKE> <STRIKE>White washing</STRIKE> destroying NC State at the moment. they are up THIRTY in the first half.

    the Plumlee brothers, especially Mason, are putting on a dunking exhibition, and Singler is doing anything he wants. black guards Curry and Nolan Smith are also playing very, very well. with 2 minutes left in the half, this game might be over already ...

    the only problem is Duke is only 5-13 from the free throw line. ouch.

    Duke cruised.

    now on ESPN2, a very-White Saint Mary's team has just tipped off against Loyola Marymount. the Gaels are fun to watch with their two-headed point guard system (McConnell and Dellavedova), and nearly everyone who sees the floor can knock down open shots from the perimeter. they are hard to match up with, and when they are knocking down their jumpers, they are very, very hard to beat.

    edited to add: meanwhile in the West Coast Conference, Gonzaga (or Gone-Zulu as a CF poster cleverly named them) continues to play bad basketball. they lost today to Memphis in Spokane. announcer Jimmy Dykes correctly, and repeatedly, pointed out that the 'Zags needed to leave freshman David Stockton (3 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal, but 3 turnovers) in the game, because he is their best passer and playmaker from the point guard spot. black starter Demetri Goodson can't pass, nor can he shoot, so opposing defenders don't even attempt to guard him except when he tries to penetrate. despite this, Stocktonrarely getsenough minutes ...

    sophomore forward Kelly Olynyk (10 points in 15 minutes) also played well, and, along with Stockton, helped spark a Gone-Zulu comeback from 13 down. alas, there aren't enough players like Stockton and Olynyk. there are, however,plenty of mulattoes and Senegalese-turned-Canadians to create all the losses in the record book.

    for the first time in a decade, Gone-Zulu doesn't look like they will make the NCAA Tourney, unless of course they win the WCC tournament. oh, for the days of yore ...

    where have you gone Casey Calvary?

    I also noticed that many of Gonzaga's black and mulatto players aren't even close to Spokane. As Jimmy mentioned, Mangisto Arop is "Canadien" another Elias Harris, is "German." Yet another mullato, Mathis Keita is "French." Don't stop there, Sam Dower is from Minnesota. Robert Sacre is another "Canadien."

    For 2012's recruiting class, one of their first offers is to a black player from... Connecticutt. So, Gonzaga has to scour the Earth just to find black players to recruit... why can't they just recruit the white players like they used to?

    even though he plays way out on the Left Coast, don't sleep on Saint Mary's point guard Mickey McConnell. last night against Loyola Marymount, McConnell came close to a triple double (16 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds) while only committing 2 turnovers. while McConnell was focused more on passing in this win, St. Mary's 20th of the season, backcourt mate Matthew Dellavedova was scoring. he hit for 23 points on 9-18 shooting.

    Chandler Parsons continued his stellar play for Florida, as he led the Gators to an upset over #11 Kentucky. the 6-10 point forward scored a team-high 17 points, pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds, and dished out a game-high 5 assists. he also had 1 blocked shot, and he did all that while committing ZERO turnovers.

    i wonder what is keeping this sky-walking, big-shot-hittinglong-and-tall playmaker so low on the NBA draft boards ...

    Not sure if this guy has been mentioned but Junior Harper Kamp of the Cal Golden Bears had 33 points and 10 rebounds against Arizona. The 6'-8" forward is averaging 15 points a game on the season.
