    Kaminsky has a very versatile game, similar to Dirk. 7' tall, can shoot from outside, put the ball on the floor and take it to the hole, has a great variety of low post and high post moves, is a good passer, as well as a good rebounder and defender. The play in the Purdue game today where he took the ball the length of the floor and fed Dekker for a jam shows how skilled he is. In the second half of this season he has really elevated his game with multiple 30 point and even a 40 point game. This should give him more confidence that he has the ability to be an NBA All-Star. Conveniently for us, just when Dirk's career is winding down. One thing he needs to do is get stronger. He needs to add at good 10-20 pounds of muscle to be able to excel at the next level.

    Good caste matchup on CBS right now. Wyoming with 3 whites on the court playing SD State with maybe one. Wyoming is down 35-34 with 10:00 to play.

    I think they just have two - one of them is Larry Nance Jr, son of former Knicks player Larry Nance. They are still very preferable to San Diego State, however.

    You're right. I didn't look closely enough!

    I'm not all that hopeful about this college basketball season. Kentucky has way too much talent with 8 Mcdonald's All-Americans. It would be great to see them lose, because it would be the biggest upset in college basketball history, but it don't see that happening.

    Kentucky is super-talented this year, and have looked very strong in nearly every game, but they have had some close games that they should have lost against SEC bubble teams like Ole Miss, LSU, and Texas A&M, had they simply been able to knock down the game-winning shots (they all got up decent looks that should have beat Kentucky at the buzzer). The SEC also has not looked very good this year, and may only get 2-3 other teams besides Kentucky in the tourney.

    I don't see any reason why a white-friendly team that's been scorching hot of late such as Arizona, Gonzaga, or Wisconsin couldn't beat them. I could also see Virginia playing them very well, assuming their guard Justin Anderson returns healthy, and they play Evan Nolte and Mike Tobey a fair amount as well; Ryan Arcidiacono and Villanova could also knock them off. I'm hoping they'll get Arizona or Gonzaga in the Elite Eight; if Kansas gets placed in their region, they will likely have an easy road to the Final Four.

    In terms of tonight's game, it would be nice to see Notre Dame (with Connaughton and Vasturia) beating all black UNC tonight.

    With Wyoming winning tonight, I'm hoping SMU can knock off UConn and VCU (I guess there's a first time to "cheer" for everybody..) against Rhode Island tomorrow to make sure BYU is safely in... they should be, but some of the "experts" seem to think they are still on the bubble, the only one I've seen who doesn't have them there is Joe Lunardi, who has them as a 10 seed.

    Congrats to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish!! They knocked off North Carolina to win the ACC Tournament! Pat Connaughton led the way for Notre Dame with 20 points and 4 rebounds, and Steve Vasturia also had a nice game with 14 points and 4 rebounds in a nice caste win for us!



    An interesting note - Bobby Hurley now coaches the Buffalo Bulls, who defeated Central Michigan to win the MAC, and take Buffalo dancing for the first time in school history.

    If you guys want to see a couple of good white players, tune into ESPN in a couple of minutes to watch Arizona. Also, two white friendly teams in Montana and Eastern Washington are on ESPNU right now.

    This has been a good day. Wisconsin wins, Wyoming wins and is in, Albany wins and is in, and best of all, Notre Dame beats all black North Carolina! And Arizona is coming up against Oregon. It's looking like Eastern Washington is probably going to beat Montana, but it's not over yet.

    Also, looks like Stephen F. Austin, with 2 white starters, is going to beat Sam Houston, with 0.

    After watching Notre Dame tonight I'm starting to think if they have a good night and Kentucky is off, they might just be able to knock off the Wildcats.

    Eastern Washington has 3 white starters as well, so no harm there with them winning the Big Sky.

    It would be nice to see Stephen F. Austin (who knocked off VCU in last year's NCAA tournament) back in the Big Dance. I know Jacob Parker is a stud for them as well as Thomas Walkup.

    It would be great to cap off the day with Arizona taking the Pac-12 Crown tonight.

    Arizona's contingent of white players are playing well tonight in the Wildcats' demolition of Oregon! All four of them (McConnell, Tarczewski, Pitts, and Ristic) have gotten good minutes tonight... another Top 5 team that plays a fair number of white guys! A great cap to a great day of college hoops! McConnell hopefully will get some NBA looks... this guy is so much fun to watch. I know Tarczewski will be drafted either this year or next as well.

    Maybe CF can get lucky, as we did with the Superbowl, and 4/5 white Wisconsin will win the national title. It would be amazing to see them knock off John Calipari's all-star team (Kentucky) and see their loathsome DWF's weeping with grief...

    These sickening, racially-obtuse losers are constantly being shown (going hog wild for their all-Negro team) during Kentucky highlights on ESPN.

    Dear Odin, please let Kentucky lose in NCAA tournament [folds hands in prayer]

    It's great that Wisconsin grabbed a No. 1 seed.......otherwise they would have been in the same bracket as Kentucky. Now, hopefully the showdown will happen in the final four. That would be epic.......like Laetner and Bobby Hurley slaying UNLV! Reminder that the 30 for 30 presentation 'I hate Christian Laetner' is on ESPN tonight at 9:30......a must watch.
