    Currently watching Harvard vs Penn. Hoping Penn, led by skilled big man AJ Brodeur, can pull off the upset. Been a rough year for theQuakers(8-7) despite big expectations. Its a Longshot but I'd like to see them at The Big Dance in March.

    Penn was able to hold off Affletic Harvard. AJ Brodeur finished with 20pts and 8reb 8ast. Reminds me a lot of Ethan Happ.

    Wisconsin was able to upset Michigan State despite the turmoil surrounding their team. 64-63. Nate Reuvers had 14pts 5reb and 2blks. Brevin Pritzl with 10pts and 7reb!

    3 Big East Teams were upset in Seton Hall, Villanova, and Butler.

    Kentucky also lost, even though Auburn is no better from a caste view.

    BYU just upset St Mary's led by TJ Haws! I was fortunate enough to watch. In crunch time he was clutch!

    Badgers currently taking care of business with Ohio State.

    Pritzl with career high 19 and is shooting lights out from 3 lately!!

    Potter, Reuvers, and Anderson have all played well . Reuvers has recorded his 136th block of his career, on the heels of Happs school block record.

    Noticed Duke was able to hold off the UNC upset

    Duke doesn't have much to root fo. All of their white stars get very low minutes and rarely shoot the ball at least from what i've seen. It used to be a very
    white friendly college for decades but now they lean the other way in my honest opinion.

    Glad to see Wisconsin playing good.

    Iowa keeps on winning. They are top 25 and moving up slowly. Love to watch Iowa, Utah St, and Gonzaga.

    Yup Duke just hasn't done it for us lately. At least they have a few white Guy's in the rotation but it's One n Done recipe over there now.

    Happy to see Iowa bounce back this year after a rough one last season.

    Unfortunately haven't been able to catch many West Coast Games, have seen Zags and Utah State once though and was impressed.

    Wisconsin has been great at home and dreadful on the road. That said experts are predicting up to 12 B1G teams in the Tourney and Badgers as one of them. Nice to see them get a win, they honored the 2000 Final Four Team at Halftime highlighted by Star PG Mike Kelley and The Great Coach Dick Bennett.

    I still root for Duke. They dismantled and obliterated Notre Dame today despite a nice effort from second round talent double double machine big man John Mooney.

    Duke has a white fleet that pop out in varying degrees from game to game.

    Jack White is an athletic hustler who can block shots. Not overly skilled but does the dirty work.

    Sophomore Joey Baker ( who should be a red shirt freshman long story) has a very nice shot and good moves. He was 3-4 with 8 points today.

    Junior Alex O Connell is a truly live legged role player who can heat up from time to time. Had a great game today with 12 points and 4 steals. If he could settle his nerves this high wire act could become a real force.

    Freshman Matthew Hurt had a nice 5-9 12 point 9 rebound stat line. He needs some strength and I hope he stays at least another year at Duke but he is a real lottery pick talent. His 3 point shooting form is similar to Larry Bird. OK I don't want to get everybody excited here he is not the next Larry but man he has a lot of potential.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see a Duke -Gonzaga final which would be great to see.
