    Miami beat Wichita State unfortunately. Puerto Rican guard Angel Rodriguez had game high 28pts for the Canes. Hopefully this isn't the last we see of Ron Baker.

    Grayson Allen has 22pts at half. Duke is cruising against Yale so far up 48-25 at half.

    Flame throwing Soph. Grayson Allen with 22 1st half points already....He's got the complete offensive game.on fire from 3 pt line & throw down on fast break! Charles Barkley & Clark Kellogg love him! Luke Kennard was heating up....Vanilla Thunder Marshall Plumlee w Slam dunk & blocked shot! ..Yale's Makai Mason will have to take control like he did vs Baylor to get back into this game in 2nd half!

    Ron Baker, Thomas Walkup, Kaleb Tarczwekski , Domantas Sabonis, Kyle Wiltjer, Jake Layman, Jared Utoff, Jakob Poeltl ....amongst others should all be solid NBA Players if given the opportunity!

    LSU's season came unraveled after their leader Keith Hornsby reaggravated sports hernia injury..where he tried coming back too quick from early season surgery

    Duke holds on after a BIG Yale rally brought them to within 3 with under a minute left. Grayson Allen had a great game, finishing with 27 points! Blue Devils on to the Sweet 16!!

    Indiana beats Kentucky. This tournament keeps getting better. Awesome to see Kentucky's season end so early. Indiana is a team I could get behind. One of the great college basketball programs and a great, American heartland state as well.

    Watching Iowa State just now, I didn't realize how White friendly they are. They were playing 3 of our guys when I had it on and they were beating Arkansas-Little Rock by 17 in the second half. The Cyclones have the potential to win a few more games.

    Yes indeed....Yale had an impressive 15-0 run to make things interesting..Grayson Allen ended up with 29 & Plumlee had 5 blocked shots!

    Glad to see Kenthuggy lose

    Missed Gonzaga's impressive 24 pt win over #3 seed Utah...Sabonis had 19 pts 10 rebs...& Wiltjer had 17

    Butler's Andrew Chrabascz had 25 in losing effort..Kellen Durham was held to 8

    I can't tell if you are being serious or perhaps this is Schlomo working on an extra credit assignment at the Yeshiva? At any rate Iowa State has one white guy (Matt Thomas) who gets any minutes whatsoever. This is even including mop-up duty time.

    If you are being serious Niang is clearly some African mystery meat and the other guy (Nadel) is a very dark featured Arab. I'm not into questioning if there is a turd or two in the gene pool for people who act white with darker features, but these are way to obvious to be taken seriously. Also Indiana except for Creans first couple years are extremely black with only the white walk ons and bench role players. They have 2 senior grad transfers this year that make them look more white friendly. Hartmann was the only true recruit on the whole team and he was not a priority.

    Maybe I didn't watch long enough to confirm that the 3 very light-skinned Iowa State players were all in fact White. From the half court camera shot they passed the eye test. Next time I watch the Cyclones I'll look more closely. Also, you're right Crean's first few teams were very black but that was because he inherited the disastrous Kelvin Sampson's leftovers. Since then he's gotten more and more White-friendly. A few years ago he had Cody Zeller, Jordan Hulls, Will Sheehy, and at least one other White player who was a starter or got alot of minutes.

    Who the hell are you to call me a Schlomo troll? I've been around here a hell of alot longer then you. You're more likely to be a troll then me, Newbie.

    Lots of good good caste games today. If Iowa can pull the upset of Villanova that would be beautiful. Same thing for Wisconsin over Xavier. Notre Dame is whiter than SFA but because of Walkup I am fine with the Lumberjacks winning. Hopefully Syracuse can knock off the totally black MTSU but that team is going to be a tough out for anyone.

    Iowa is getting destroyed right now. On the bright side Baer has 13pts off the bench for the Hawkeyes.

    Arcidiacono has been great for Nova.

    Butler and Iowa are both done, but both exited in VERY different fashion.

    Despite not having much of a bench, Butler gave No.1 seed Virginia all they could handle, coming to within 3 points in the last minute, and were a missed Kellen Dunham three away from a tie game. Despite a 2nd half defense that was shoddy at best, the Bulldogs fought and clawed to stay in the game. As 22 mentioned, Andrew Chrabascz had 25 points to keep Butler in the game; going 9/13 from the field, including 4/4 from deep! Dunham got smothered by Virginia's top-ranked defense, and a a result, didn't get much going. I do wish Holtman would've ran more set plays for Dunham to get him open. But, I'm proud of the way they played.

    I didn't watch the Iowa game this morning, because I knew what was going to happen. Iowa has looked downright dreadful the last few weeks of the season, including losing a Big 10 tournament clunker against a terrible Illinois squad. I'm honestly surprised they got past Temple. Something clicked off for them since their days as a Top 5 team. I don't know what it was, but I'm assuming they looked bad against Villanova today. It's a shame, because Gesell, Uthoff, and Woodbury were higher rated players coming out of High School. They definitely had their moments, but I think their careers (especially Gesell and Woodbury's) were tremendous disappointments. I thought they'd be much better than they were, especially after basically four years of starting for both of them.

    Gonzaga looked GREAT last night. And with 10 seed Syracuse or 15 seed Middle Tennessee up next, they'll have a great chance to get to the Elite Eight.

    It looks like Notre Dame now starts two white guys in Vasturia and Matt Farell. It would be nice to see them advance.

    You did this exact same crap with Adams and Nance of Wyoming last year. In fact if I wasn't to lazy you could probably be traced back to hyping up Jason Kidds first years in the NBA. Surely just a coincidence?

    These type of forums will always be a magnet for our enemies.

    I think you are a little misguided in your criticism of Riggins44 who has always been a solid member of this forum who has always been part of the cause for white athletes.

    Looks like you searched my old posts, at least half-heartedly. I did mistake Nance for being white, you got me there. I never said anything about Adams, whoever that is, or Jason Kidd.

    It looks like you do like to accuse long standing members here of being trolls. You did the same thing to Giovanni Marcon. Looks like you've accused a few other people also, at least indirectly. All that with only 35 total posts, looks like you enjoy creating hate and discontent on this site.

    But hey, that's the Left's whole reason for living.

    Don't worry Riggins44. We know your a loyal poster and friend here. Newbies just doing what they do best.

    Other than a few losses by a couple of our teams, it's been a very enjoyable tournament thus far. Hope we can
    get a win by the Badgers tonight.

    "Let's all get behind Wyoming" a white friendly team. "Let's all get behind Iowa State" a white friendly team.
    Both of these schools are in extremely white states despite playing exactly one white kid a piece ( Gabrau last year and Thomas, neither of which stars) for the years of the attempted hype train.

    Mean while not a peep about St Mary's or BYU g

    I wish nothing but the best for this site but it's impossible to prevent SJW's and zionists from hijacking the good intentions of a very select few.

    Length of time means nothing other than some new class of kids at Ida Crown get to practice their shtick of perfecting the Riggens caractiture to be quoted by their aunts and uncles occasionally in the MSM

    Semi-white friendly Syracuse beating coal black MTSU 31-27 at halftime. Cooney and Lydon (those are white men) with 16 of SU's points. Lydon had a nice alley-oop dunk also!

    Yes he did. Layman has been stepping it up lately. He had 26 points in one of the Big 10 tournament games. Layman has always been one of those players that has alot of ability and could be more of a star but is willing to take a step back for the good of the team. But when he has to he can really step up. Hopefully he has another good game tonight.

    Tyler Lydon with the very solid contribution off the bench for Syracuse in the blowout win over MTSU. 14 points, 7 boards, 6 blocked shots. This kid is very athletic and only a freshman. He should start for the next three years for the Orangemen. Trevor Cooney also with a very solid game; 12 points, 6 boards, 4 assists.

    It's good after a long layoff (been living abroad) to come back to CF to see White players kicking butt. Per the various comments that teams aren't White enough, it's at least good to see that what few White players there are tend to be important factors on their team, if not the main alpha of their team (like Nowitzki is for Dallas). One of my fondest memories was when 2010 Duke won the tourney and they had lots of White talent. Another good memory was last year when Wisconsin went all the way to the final and they were really White. Sometimes it's not so important that Whites are the most in a sport on any given year, but that they are among the best.
