    Davidson upsets No. 12 Kansas 80-74 as Nik Cochran score 21 pts.

    Davidson is 80% white, including the starters!

    I put that game on and was shocked to see four white starters from Davidson. I also expected Kansas to have two white starters but the lone guy is Jeff Whitey. Davidson's white players looked good and were able to penetrate to the basket fairly easily against the supa affletes of Kansas.

    Sorry for being a little late, but I'd thought I'd post a little bit about some players and teams to cheer for in College Basketball this year. Illinois (good team to cheer for) has already been mentioned by Freethinker's writeup in this thread, so I won't have a write-up on them. I'll post some other teams later. Some individual players to keep an eye out for include Tyler Zeller from North Carolina, this guy is a beast and a joy to watch. Kyle Kuric of Louisville is another player to watch. One of the only white players to get time for Rick Pitino this year, he is very athletic and very productive for the Cardinals. Other players that have been mentioned are Purdue's Robbie Hummel and Ryne Smith, and NC State's Scott Wood. A lot of other players have already been mentioned in this thread.

    Gonzaga- While not the teams of Adam Morrison, Gonzaga is slowly starting to play some more white athletes. Point Guard David Stockton inexplicably comes off the bench again this year, despite being easily their best guard last year, even better than the "real athletes" that were supposed to take Gonzaga to another level. He still averages 20 minutes per game, 3 assists, and 7 ppg, he could be better if given more playing time. Gonzaga starts two white players this year. Junior Mike Hart has started every game for the Zags this year, but he usually is in there to pass the ball around. Seeing as how he plays 19.7 minutes per game so far this year, and David Stockton plays 20.3, it's likely that they sub in for each other during the game, each playing around half the game. True frosh Kevin Pangos, out of Ontario, looks to be the next great white athlete to come out of Gonzaga. He's started ten out of eleven games at guard, and is currently Gonzaga's leading scorer, averaging nearly 15 ppg, and well over 30 minutes per game. I haven't been able to watch him yet this year, but I hope to catch him soon. Also, Ryan Spangler and Mathis Moenninghoff get scraps off the bench.

    Butler- Still adjusting to life without Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack, Butler has started to gain some chemistry with their team after a rocky start. They now have victories over Purdue and at Stanford for the season, and may be able to play their way back into the picture for the NCAA tournament. Butler looks to have settled on three white starters for the year, due to downright awful performances by a couple of their black players. Andrew Smith, one of Butler's key returnees, starts at center again this year for the Bulldogs. He is a force in the middle to be reckoned with, averaging ten points and 6 rebounds per game. He's in foul trouble some though, only playing 25 minutes per game. Junior guard Chase Stigall has gained a starting spot, after starting the year off on the bench. He is a consistent player for Butler, averaging nine ppg. Erik Fromm, a 6-8 sophomore, starts some of Butler's games, but only plays around 10 minutes. Jackson Aldridge, a freshman guard from Australia, has provided an impact for the Bulldogs off the bench, playing around 18 minutes, and averaging 5 ppg. Aldridge is having his growing pains, but he did score 15 points in their upset win at Stanford. Andrew Smeathers and Garrett Butcher each play a few minutes each game off the bench.

    Duke- Duke's backcourt continues to get darker, with no white players getting playing time. However, their front court continues to stay white, with Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly starting at forwards; Miles Plumlee comes off the bench. The Plumlee brothers are superb athletes and are very fun to watch. Mason is averaging a double double, with 12.5 ppg, and 10 rebounds per game. Ryan Kelly is more of a perimeter threat than the Plumlee brothers, averaging 12.4 ppg. Miles Plumlee comes off the bench to average 6.4 ppg and 6 rebounds per game. Unfortunatly, these three players end Duke's rotation of white players this year. Todd Zafirovski has played all of five minutes in two game this year. This might be the last couple of year we'll be able to cheer for Duke. Coach K must be taking all that "Duke basketball is too white," to heart.

    Notre Dame- The Fighting irish remain a bastion of whiteness in the black Big East. They are the only team in the Big East this year to start a majority of white players, and play a majority of white players. Forward Tim Abromaitis is out right now with a torn ACL. Jack Cooley has also been very consistent this year for the Fighting Irish, averaging 9 points and 8 rebounds this year for Notre Dame in 12 starts. Cooley is a terrific player on the boards for the Fighting Irish. Scott Martin has been consistent again this year for Notre Dame, averaging 9 points per game. Guards Alex Dragicevich and Pat Connaughton have started a few games each for the Irish this year, both getting around 23 minutes per game and 8 points per game. I like what I've seen this year from Connaughton, who's just a freshman this year. Forwards Tom Knight and Mike Broghammer also get around 10 minutes per game for the Irish as well. Notre Dame has struggled this year, going 8-5 so far, but hopefully they can make some noise in the Big East this year.

    Creighton- Creighton has the potential to be this year's Butler, with dominating forward Doug McDermott leading the way for the Blue Jays. McDermott is an absolute beast for Creighton, averaging 25 points and 8 rebounds per game. I can't wait to see him play this year. He is the engine that makes Creighton run. Grant Gibbs starts at guard for Creighton and averages 8 points, 6 assists, and 5 rebounds per game, playing 30 mpg. Off the bench for Creighton comes Ethan Wragge a sophomore forward who's averaging 8 PPG for Creighton. Center Will Artino and guard Avery Dingman also come off the bench for Creighton, each playing around 9 minutes per game. Creighton uses four white players out of it's nine man rotation, which isn't bad when you look at teams like Marquette or St. John's.

    Northwestern- An under the radar team this year, Northwestern has a chance to do good this year. They are led by 6-9 forward John Shurna, who's been the Wildcat's most consistent player this year, averaging 19 points and 6 rebounds per game. Freshman guard Dave Sebolewski is an emerging threat for the Wildcats, but with Shurna and and Drew Crawford on the team, he's only averaging 8 PPG. Serbian Luke Mirkovic starts at center for Northwestern. Off the bench for the Wildcats come forward David Curletti and guard Alex Marcotullio. Nick Fruendt also gets time off of Northwestern's bench. 6 out of Northwestern's nine players in it's rotation or white.

    South Dakota State - The Jackrabbits deserve some notice from CF. They went to Washington, and blew out the all-black Huskies by 19 points on their home floor, with an all-white starting five! The black players from Washington must've been befuddled on how a bunch of honkies from South Dakota, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota could've outplayed them so thoroughly at home. They also played Minnesota and Georgia fairly tough too, albeit in losses. 6-4 Junior Guard Nate Wolters is the engine that makes the Jackrabbits run. He's a great player and scorer, averaging 21.2 PPG, 6 assists per game, and over 35 MPG too. Guard Griffan Callahan is also a player to watch for SDSU. He's another 6-4 guard who averages nearly 12 PPG, and 6 rebound per game to boot. Chad White and Jordan Dykstra split starts, depending on who their opponent is, both average around 10 PPG. The last white starters are 6-7 forward Tony Fiegen and 6-4 sophomore guard Brayden Carlson. The three white players who see meaningful minutes off the Jackrabbit's bench are Zach Horstman, Zach Monaghan, and Marcus Heemstra. So out of a 10 man rotation, only one black player sees any time at all! The Jacks are also very young, with just one senior on the roster this year in Callahan, and only two juniors, so they'll keep improving, and hopefully make some noise in the NCAA Tourney the next few years.

    It is indeed, the dweebs that claim that cite "hybrid vigor" not realizing that that only works in plants and less complex animals, in more complex organisms it doesn't work except in one species of salamander, the exception to the rule. Or in cattle where it introduces different tasting meat for human consumption.

    A great win by Notre Dame yesterday over #22 PITT! This is a rebuilding year for the Irish, so it's important that they play as a team and try their best to improve.

    I'm surprised nobody posted about the Washington- South Dakota State game. It was about a week ago, but it's still worth mentioning. The all-black Huskies were demolished at home by an SDSU team that had 5 white starters, with 4 more that got time off the bench! Junior Gaurd Nate Wolters tore through the Huskies for 34 points! Only one black player even plays for SDSU in their 10 man rotation. All of SDSU's white players are from South Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa. They're 11-4 overall and 3-0 in the Summit League so far this year. I added a piece on them in my write-ups of teams to cheer for.


    Also, I'm excited to see what Notre Dame can do next year. I hope they can put it together this year and make it into the NCAA Tourney.

    Kevin Pangos had a nice game for Gonzaga again tonight against Portland, scoring 19 points on 6-8 shooting, including 5-7 from three, and 2-2 from the charity stripe.

    Robbie Hummel and D.J. Byrd both had good games tonight for Purdue in their win over Iowa. Hummel finished with a double double, 16 points and 11 rebounds; Byrd finished with 14 points off the bench.

    Kyle Kuric finished with 17 points to lead Louisville in scoring tonight in a tough loss to Georgetown, who seem to be giving Nate Lubick less and less playing time for some reason...

    Finally, Doug McDermott finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds as Creighton got beat by Missouri State.

    And just to think, a great player like Nate will most likely not be drafted. It's another one of those "negro mystique" things. Here, this white balla is tearing up a team of affletic supaheroes, including 2 future NBA "stars", but he would not be good enough to play NBA hoops. I know, black players all of a sudden become 10 times better as soon as their names are called in the draft, but white boys either stay the same or decline in skills! I must have missed the ascension into "godlike" status for the black draft picks at the last few NBA drafts, where when their names are called, electricity starts flying off of their fingertips and an aura of the gods surrounds them as they make their way to the podium. Their is no other explanation.

    I've never heard of Wolters until now. Does anyone know his vertical?

    I'm not sure what it would be, WA33.

    Wolters and SDSU play Oakland tonight, I'm not sure where to watch it, though.

    Some numbers from our guys from last night.

    Butler's Andrew Smith had 13 points in their win over Green Bay.

    Connor Teahan and Jeff Withey had good games for Kansas, scoirng 13 and 10 points respectively in their blowout win over Howard. Teaan tied for the team lead in scoring.

    Tyler Zeller had 19 points and 13 rebounds in the Tar Heels' easy win over Elon.

    Vanderbilt's Brad Tinsley had 11 points and eight assists in the Commodore's dismantling of Marquette.

    Evan Smotrycz had 10 points and 10 rebounds in Michigan's win over Penn State.

    Remember when St. Mary's was an all-white team in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament? Well, it appears the Gaels decided to get more athletic over the last two years. Mattew Dellavedova is the only white starter left for the Gaels(and of course is their best player), who start four mulattos though.:dodgy: Think Gonzaga the second. They have two white starters regularly though, I think Clint Steindl starts, but he's injured right now.

    South Dakota State beat Oakland by 12, 76-64.

    It was a true team effort for the Jackrabbits tonight. Their three starting guards played the entire game. Nate Wolters lead the way for SDSU with 19 points and 7 assists. Brayden Carlson went a perfect 6-6 from the field, including 4-4 from 3! He finished with 18 points. Forward Jordan Dykstra finished with 17 points and 6 rebounds. White players scored every one of SDSU's 76 points.


    Duke on the other hand, only had 19 of their 110 points scored by whites. Mason Plumlee only had 3 points. Ryan Kelly had 9, while Miles Plumlee had 7.

    Without Jim Calhoun, Tyler Olander and Niels Giffey actually got more than their usual 5 minutes, playing 19 and 14 minutes respectively. They acutually scored 6 and 7 points respectively.

    Cody Zeller and Jordan Hulls played great for Indiana in their upset of No. 2 Ohio State last night. Zeller scored 14 points, while Hulls dropped in 17 points, including going 4-5 from three point land.

    Aaron Craft played tough in the loss for Ohio State, scoring 16 points.

    Kevin Pangos played solid against Xavier, scoring 13 points to go with 7 assists.

    With A-Riv in da house, Duke lost to Temple! How is that possible? How about his back-to-back missed free-throws near the end of the game, when Duke still had a chance to comeback? Another problem with annointing this guy is the fact that he's not even a "big guard." Despite the hype-machine's best efforts, I have never seen a mulatto D-Wade.

    Villanova lost again tonight, to South Florida. I'm pretty happy to see these racists go down the toilet this year. Anyway, here are some stats from tonight's games.

    Cody Zeller had 18 points tonight in Indiana's win over Michigan.

    South Dakota State's playmaking guard Nate Wolters had a great game tonight for the Jackrabbits with 28 points, 6 assists, and 4 steals. South Dakota State plays at Oral Roberts Saturday, the Summit League's preseason favorite. I think South Dakota State is talented enough to make the school's first NCAA Tourney this year.
     

    Talented forward Garrett Green, an LSU transfer, is currently leading the San Diego State Aztecs in scoring tonight, with 12 points and 4 rebounds early in the 2nd half. San Diego State is a little whiter this year, with two starters in forward Green and 3 point shooter James Rahon.
    Narbeh Ebrahimian comes off the bench for the Aztecs as their 3rd white player.
     

    Noah Hartsock led BYU in scoring tonight with 21 points and 7 rebounds.

    Athletic true frosh guard Kevin Pangos had 11 points tonight in Gonzaga's win over Pepperdine.

    Davidson guard Nik Cochran poured in 22 points tonight as the Wildcats demolished UNC Greensboro. Guard Chris Czerapowicz added 15 points off the bench for the Wildcats. I hope Davidson can rally and make the Tourney, because as somebody mentioned in this thread, Davidson's team is about 80% white!

    Washington State forward Brock Motum exploded for 27 points tonight on 10-12 shooting and 4-6 from the charity stripe in their OT loss to the Utah Utes.

    [SUB]Notre Dame beat Louisville today in Double OT!! Jack Cooley lead the Irish in the upset, scoring 18 points, while adding 10 rebounds. Scott Martin also had a double double, with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Notre Dame has been inconsistent this year, but I think they are getting it together.

    Kyle Kuric had 17 points had 10 boards in the loss.

    Creighton's Doug McDermott had 44 points tonight on 18-23 shooting and 5-5 from the charity stripe. He played amazing for Creighton today!:icon_grin:

    UNC's Tyler Zeller had 20 points today on 8-12 shooting and 4-5 from the FT line in the Heel's blowout win over BC.

    Ryan Kelly had a pretty good game off the bench for the Dukies today in their 81-74 win over Ga. Tech. He led the team in scoring with 21 points.

    Davidson is now 10-4 and 4-0 in their conference! Jake Cohen poured in 29 points for the Wildcats last night! He shot 8-9 FGs and 11-12 FTs.

    Kansas plays Texas at 4 ET. Jeff Withey and Clint Chapman are the athletes to watch.

    Also at 4 ET, Duke hosts Florida State in what should be an intense game!
