    It's over!! Florida Gulf Coast upsets Georgetown 78-68!!! The best part of the game was a kid by the name of Eddie Murray for Florida Gulf Coast. He should have about half of the SC Top 10 to himself tonight with his tremendous Alley-oops and dunks against Georgetown!! This kid definitely opened some eyes for white athleticism tonight!!

    Thompson III coached at an Ivy League school before Georgetown so playing White players isn't strange like his father. If you don't know the history of Georgetown you wouldn't know that before Thompson II came to the campus the basketball team looked similar to the roster that Albany or an Ivy League team usually fields. Thompson II was allowed to run amok by the administration so that he could raise the profile of the basketball program. Then when the administration questioned him about the "student" athletes he cried racism and whined out loud about prop 48 and other recruiting road bumps that he had to deal with.

    Jack Lambert, that was an incredible game and I watched the entire second half. It got a little too close towards the end and I thought Florida GC would blow it like Davidson, but they hung-on, and it sort of makes up for the Davidson loss.

    The guy mention, Eddie Murray is an unbelievable leaper! He was dunking all over Georgetown's affletes in the second half, and the commentators/announcers were giving him his due. He was apparently rated only a 2-star athlete coming out HS, no surprise there, of course. Here's his dunk towards the end of the game, which should be the #1 play of the night on SC. His hand was above the square on that done, the kid must have near a 40-inch vertical:

    You called that one......but they did keep showing Feeler's (?) one handed dunk off an alyoop pass from Comer (?)......that play has to be in "One Shining Moment"........

    The guy that threw down that dunk was actually Chase Fieler.

    Another great white player for FGCU is Brett Comer, their sophmore point guard. I looked up his high school highlights and I was just shocked at how good he looked, he has everything - good size at 6'3", great athleticism (dunks with ease), great handles. How was this kid not recruited by every major college in the nation? The caste system, that's why.

    Thanks for the correction, Kaiser_Soze, and you are also spot on regarding their PG Comer who played a solid game today. Many of the announcers were comparing tonight's high-flying exhibition by Florida GC to the NBA's Clippers, who have a few dunkers of their own, so GC definitely got plenty of attention.

    I found a recruting blurb on Fieler, check this out:

    http://espn.go.com/colleges/michiga...ng/player/evaluation/_/id/111321/chase-fieler

    Chase is a versatile wing forward who can stroke it out to the 3-point line. He doesn't have great athleticism but he gets the job done on guts and toughness.

    The two announcers at the game actually said Georgetown was having a lot of trouble with Florida Gulf Coast's (specifically Brown, Fieler, and Murray's) electric athleticism! :D

    The coach for FGCU, in his post-game presser, referred to his team as "athletic" and "long" on several occassions.....funny stuff....sticking it to the media and their sterotypes.

    Mitch McGary is absolutely going off against VCU today!! With 14 minutes left in the game, he has 15 points and 11 rebounds on a perfect 7/7 from the field!!

    VCU is getting the holes in their street ball trap style of play exposed by Michigan. Michigan's White point guard and big are exploiting the lack of size in the middle and the over pursuing of ball handlers.....

    I think JTIII is, unlike his dad, open-minded about recruiting/playing whites.

    Best teams play whites?

    Agree or disagree:

    Teams in the Final 4 and NCG, year in and year out, tend to have more white players than the typical "major" NCAA squad.

    I say yes. What say you all?

    My understanding is that Ivy League schools, like those in DIII, can give financial aid up to 100% of a student's calculated need, said financial aid consisting of grants, work-study & loans. For an athlete from a poor family, who is wanted by the institution, that can be a full ride, or very close to it.

    Agree. I guess "diversity" can be a good thing. :icon_wink:

    The all-black squads rarely advance far.

    See Michigan hammering the all-black VCU (not even 1 White walk-on bench warmer) right now.

    I am enjoying this game. Michigan is playing great today! Mitch McGary has 17 points and 13 rebounds with some time still remaining in the game! Albrecht and Stauskas have both played good today as well to go along with Burke and Hardaway!!

    Also, I agree with Jack Armstrong.

    Memphis State with their usual all-black supremacist lineup. Doesn't stop the goofy white fans from cheering for them however.

    I thought Mich St. had a few whites though. They are coal black on the court as well though.

    Turned that channel quick enough!

    Man, FGCU is definitely a fun team to root for. High flying antics, good rebounding, and a point guard with eyes in the back of his head. If Comer could develop his offensive game more watch out.

    McDermott is just about as complete player as you can get. People try to compare him to Creighton's other former star, Kyle Korver, but McDermott is much better at finishing with either hand. INCREDIBLY skilled around the rim, despite an average wingspan. His only weakness is ball handling, and he needs to develop that to play the wing at the next level. NBADraft.net has him going 18th right now, though those ranking fluctuate.

    Among some other players NBADraft.net has going in the lottery: Cody Zeller (5th), Alex Len (8th), Kelly Olynyk (12th), Mason Plumlee (14th). Jeff Withey is also in the first round at 29.

    Can you please elaborate on this a little further? I don't follow college b-ball real close, but outside of one Jewish starter on the current team (Lubick), where are all the "scholarship" white players that have played for Thompson III?

    In the last decade, I can't remember any.

    A couple years ago, Don Wassall actually posted an article which noted that G-Town had a black women's coach and even her team was entirely comprised of hood-rats -- not even a white girl walk-on. This issue came to light, I believe, when the "Lady Hoyas" were involved in a major pregame brawl with the sista's from Louisville.

    So, since when is any basketball coach at Georgetown open to recruiting whites, other than the token scholarship cracker (or liberal Jewish kid) here or there, perhaps once every 5 or 10 years?

    He coached at Princeton and brought over the "White style" back door cut offense of his mentor Pete Carill. I don't recall many White players on his teams but I recall literally none on Thompson II's rosters. Also Thomspon II was a back up Celtic center to Bill Russell so he played a White style back in the 60's(not that any pro teams back then played a street ball style).

    I don't follow things too closely, either, but I can't remember JT ever having a white player, not even riding the end of the bench. It seems like JTIII usually has a white guy or two, even if none has started except Lubick.

    What does Lubick's Jewishness have to do with it? Do you really think the coach made an exception for him just because he's a Jew?

    Does anyone else see an agenda behind the all-black studio team? Can't they find even one retired white player to put out there? Or will the cultural Marxists settle for nothing less than the complete extirpation of whites from the game, not only as players, but also as coaches, announcers, etc.? Has anyone made the connection between the darkening of the game and declining ratings and attendance?

    I can't believe that they can't find one white person to put in the studio... at least a few of the announcing teams are all-white, though.

    Anyway, we have a caste matchup on right now with Colorado St. and Louisville, who only plays Luke Han**** and Stephan Van Treese. I believe Colorado St. starts 3 whites.

    Nope, no joke or sarcasm was intended. Steve's a bright guy. He also was a 2010 US national champion in the MathFax mathematics competition when he was in high school.

    The cost of a Harvard undergraduate education is $52,562 per year for room and board, tuition and fees. If a student's family income is $65,000 or less, all fees and costs are paid for by Harvard's endowment. The average family covers $11,000 of the cost of a Harvard education.
    Harvard accepts 5.9% of the students who apply, among the lowest freshman acceptance rates in the nation.

    There was a black professor of mathematics at my university who seemed to be exceptionally intelligent, so such a thing is possible, though exceedingly rare. It must be quite lonely to have an intellect so far above others of one's own kind that it is as if they are a different species. H.L. Mencken's theory is that such these are cases of atavism in persons with partial descent from the old Southern aristocracy.

    Actually, I was impressed by CSU. Louisville was just too good...probably this year's best team. But CSU's whites showed enough that one searches for an innocent explanation of how they were passed up by "name," i.e., black, programs.
