    One team to watch closely in the next several years will be the University of Arizona Wildcats. They hired Tommy Lloyd who was the main recruiter that helped
    Gonzaga to recruit so many european studs on the basketball team. Many of those guys are now playing in the NBA. Coach Lloyd will bring the same approach
    to coaching the Wildcats in Arizona. Have a look at the current roster and all of you here will be very happy to see this team so far. It's only his first year as coach. They have 10 out of 18 of our guys! :)

    As anyone watching the Gonzaga Game? The reason I ask is that we will see one of our guys only play 1 or 2 years of college ball and then be a very high draft
    pick in the nba and he should 100% be a high lottery pick.

    True Freshman Chet Holmgren has 11 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists at the half in his first game as a Zag! Gonzaga also has Drew Timme in their starting 5.
    Both of these gentlemen should be in the nba but like I said with Holmgren, he is going to be a superstar!

    Holmgren also had 5 blocks in the first half ...

    are there any other basketball nerds on here? the below video is a VERY well done analysis of perhaps the most unique offense in all of college hoops: Bellarmine. please enjoy.

    Chet may put up a few quadruple doubles this year!

    Sr. Joey Baker some off the bench.

    Only one punchable face? That’s sad. I guess Coach K wants everyone to love Duke in his last season.

    The ironic thing is that there best teams ever were had whites as their biggest stars or at the minimum there were co stars. They won
    back to back national championships with Bobby Hurley and Christian Laettner just to name one example. I remember an almost all
    white Duke Team winning the national championship around a decade ago. They are better when they play both whites & blacks. Yet
    just like in the NFL with the Patriots Success, no one cares as it's not all about winning in sports. It's all about following the Agenda
    of the Caste System of Cultural Marxism!

    I think Duke's lack of shooting will hurt them Midway through their schedule.

    I hear that!! I miss the days of 2 to 3 and sometimes 4 punchable faces on the court back when they were winning championships.

    Thanks Bucky, I wish Baker would have transferred out 3 years ago to a smaller school and got more minutes. He definitely has nba talent.

    The blacks on those teams were also for the most part high character guys. If you play high character blacks with whites it seems to work. In college basketball of course.

    Yes I agree with you. It's very sad when some of our best guys choose the wrong scholarship. Duke wasn't always like this. Just in the last decade have they gotten alot
    darker and they don't seem to want our guys any more? What a slap in the face to all of the elite white basketball players. Thanks for nothing Coach K.

    Thank goodness Holmgren made the right choice and went to Gonzaga.

    He finished with 14 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists and 7 blocks in only 28 mins. Incredible though it was against cupcake competition.

    the Bellarmine team i shared a video of above should be a team to watch this year. not only does their offense play a paradigm-shifting style, they only have 3 non-blue collar gym rats on their entire roster.

    Iowa should be a team to monitor this year, as well. they lost their two best players from a year ago and no longer start an all-White lineup, but the Hawkeyes still feature an abundance of White athletes (3 starters and numerous backups).

    Purdue has emerged as a team to cheer for, unlike in the recent past. not only are they ranked in the top-10 to start the year, they also start 3 overachieving coaches on the floor.

    Gonzaga remains a favorite of mine, though this year’s team is the darkest in a long time. their two best players are White, however: freshman phenom Chet Holmgren and potential player of the year Drew Timme. the only other White athlete likely to see potentially meaningful minutes is 6-foot-10 freshman Ben Gregg.

    Creighton plays on national tv tonight, though i don’t know how good they’re supposed to be. they’ve not been able to replicate their strong runs since the coach’s son and All American-turned NBA player, Doug McDermott, left, but the Bluejays have a very White roster.

    they start 3 deceptively athletic players. one player of special note is Alex O’Connell. the Duke transfer is expected to be a go-to player for them despite being buried on the bench while with the Blue Devils.

    Creighton opened their season with a win over all black UA-Pine Bluff.

    Creighton pulled out the win over all-black Kennesaw State, but it was ugly. the Bluejays shot an abysmal 1-19 from 3-point range, but their defense was superb throughout and carried them to the victory. overall, the game was ragged and low scoring.

    Alex O’Connell had a game-high 13, including a pretty alley-oop finish and several slashing drives to the rim. sophomore 7-footer Kalkbrenner (sp?) finished with 10 points and was the only other Creighton player in double figures. Hawkins, a Division II transfer forward, hit the game-sealing bucket on a designed play, which shows the head coach’s confidence in him. he had a TERRIBLE shooting night, but came up big when his team needed a basket.

    Oklahoma transfer Brady Manek is relegated to sixth man duties for North Carolina, but it looks like he will be a regular top-3 contributor in the box score.

    Meanwhile, the Sooners took Eastern Washington's Groves brothers from the transfer portal this past summer. Tanner is now the lead dog at a bigger school, and Jacob comes in as the first or second guy off the bench. Interested to see how former Loyola coach Porter Moser fares in the Big 12. His offseason was certainly a home run.

    Former five star UNC center Walker Kessler has just eight points in two cupcake games for Auburn. He's a starter for now but seems to have made a really stupid school choice. Maybe he grows into his new role.

    Hunter Dickinson had a quiet 27 points in Michigan's first game of the season. He will probably battle with Timme/Holmgren over the course of the year for first-team All American frontcourt honors.

    Purdue center Zach Edey may not be too far behind. He had 22 and 10 over 18 minutes in a laugher against Indiana State. The Boilermakers start Edey and 3-and-D wing Sasha Stefanovic, bring sophomore guard Ethan Morton off the bench, and will flirt with a top 10 ranking all season.

    Colgate nearly knocked off NC State today. They are favorites to return to the tourney out of the Patriot League and are very white-friendly.

    can you imagine a team with a front line of Chet Holmgren at the three, Dickinson at the four, and Timme at the five?! simply dominant.

    don’t forget that Purdue also starts 6-foot-10 freshman forward Caleb Furst. he’s a very active defender and rebounder, and he’s been scoring at an efficient clip in the season’s early going. this is the Whitest (and best) Purdue squad in quite some time.

    Totally overlooked Furst! Purdue will be fun to follow all year.

    It’s a shame Juwan Howard has already dismantled John Beilein’s legacy at Michigan. Once Dickinson goes pro, the only white player on scholarship will be current freshman PF Will Tschetter. Tschetter was ranked around #140 overall last year, which was more than likely too low, but doesn’t seem likely to play at all this year. With no white recruits coming in 2022, the Wolverines will resemble the Georgetown Hoyas quite soon. The white walk-one wear “anti-racist” warm-ups on the bench with asinine slogans like “say their names” and “equality.” Tonight, Michigan plays an HCBU in the new “Coaches vs. Racism” invitational (very prestigious, I’m sure).

    ** Personally I’d have Timme at the 4 and Dickinson at the 5 :D

    that’s fair, but unless Timme has dramatically improved his outside shot from a year ago, then he’s MUCH better with both feet in the lane (from the high post to the block) than outside it, while Dickinson can reliably stretch/make the defense guard him out to the 3-point line. besides, Timme is such an excellent passer, he’d be deadly dealing the ball to cutters from the high post. and while Timme is a below-average rebounder, allowing Dickinson and Holmgren (both FAR superior rebounders) to cut/dive from the outside to hit the offensive glass would be damn near impossible to stop.

    i'd love to see that offense, but i’d hate to have to defend it.
