It's comical. Despite Purdue being the Number 1 Team the Majority of the season, ESPN led of the new Top 25 Poll with a video
of one of the two losses they have. Espn is just so anti white they hate Purdue being number 1. Arizona moved up to number 4.

Both of these guys will be in the NBA Draft after only 1 year of college. Grady Dick could go as high as the 5th pick. They have Flipkowski
somewhere between the 21st to 25th pick. Just projections but the nba draft is many months away still. Tubelis of AZ will be going in
the top 20 most likely as well. Other than that the 1st round will not be that good. The 2nd round will be alot better.

Despite a hiccup last week against an underappreciated Loyola Marymount team, Saint Mary's entered last night's home game against BYU ranked #17. The Gaels did not disappoint and pushed through for a win on the back of senior guard Logan Johnson's 27 points and 7 rebounds. However, freshman Aidan Mahaney is looking more and more like the team's top star. Check out these highlights in crunch time.


As for BYU, they closed out the game with four whites on the floor but also had a stretch of playing five blacks! No bubble hopes for the "Mormons" this year.

Saint Mary's played five whites for the majority of last night's game and look like a genuine Sweet 16 contender. I can already tell that my bracket will have them beating Purdue in the NCAA final.

The one tweet says “Evan” Mahaney. His name is Aidan. He’s good, for sure. St Mary’s has one guy looks like an octaroon. Still, not too shabby. Watching Purdue dismantle Ohio State right now. The big Chinaman is in the running for player of the year. He’s ok, but he’s a less skilled version of Yao Ming.

Good decision by Robbins to get out of Minneapolis. At least Vanderbilt is competitive

Nice article here about Utah State coach Ryan Odom, who is coaching an Aggies team with just three blacks on the roster. Utah State is a bubble team at present and should be a fervent rooting interest here until the end of the season. Junior point guard Steven Ashworth was promoted to the starting lineup in January due to injury and is averaging a team high 16 ppg, including a whopping 3.2 three-pointers per game at a 45% clip.

Odom seems to lean heavily on overseas recruits, which has worked great for Mark Few and Tommy Lloyd in recent years. The article is pretty lengthy but a pleasant feel-good story and positive press for a very white program.

Utah State battling for NCAA Tournament bid under Ryan Odom, who coached UMBC to historic March Madness upset

usatsi-17778319-1-2.jpg

Ryan Odom's plan is falling apart.

It's August 2000 and Odom is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with his then-girlfriend, Lucia. They're about to take the famed Grand Teton National Park gondola up the mountains. They'll leave the valley boyfriend and girlfriend; they'll return engaged. She has no clue.

Then a storm rolls in, and they come up one cabin short when the ride shuts down. Odom is irritated, but what can he do? He can't control what he can't control -- the weather especially. It's a lesson that will help throughout his coaching career.

The couple's trip continues. As they head toward their next destination, Odom pulls over -- "some spot along the way" while driving in Utah as he tells it -- and proposes. She says yes.

More than 20 years later, Odom still can't find the location on a map. But he's back in the Beehive State, now in his second year as the coach at Utah State. He's focused on putting the Aggies on the map, just like he did five years ago with the Retrievers of Maryland-Baltimore County.

Steven Ashworth didn't know the name Ryan Odom, but when he heard those magical four letters -- UMBC -- he was ecstatic. The Aggies point guard had a clear recollection of the Retrievers' monumental upset of Virginia in 2018, the first time in NCAA Tournament history a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed, and UMBC's fast pace and 3-point shooting that fit his style well.

"When we first got introduced, a lot of those conversations were about that and about how I played in a way that would allow for a lot of freedom within his strategies and offense and game plans," Ashworth recalled.

Odom's coaching career spans more than a quarter-century, but he has been in the game his whole life. The son of former East Carolina, Wake Forest and South Carolina coach Dave Odom, Ryan played at Division III Hampden-Sydney College from 1992-96 and went into coaching immediately as an administrative assistant on Seth Greenberg's staff at South Florida. Then came stops at Furman, UNC Asheville, American, Virginia Tech and Charlotte before his first full-time head-coaching opportunity at Lenoir-Rhyne, a Division II program in Hickory, North Carolina, in 2015.

Michigan basketball started three whites on Thursday night for the first time since the John Beilein era. Redshirt freshman PF Will Tschetter (pronounced Cheddar) is squeezing his way into rotation minutes after an injury to one of the Wolverines' several underperforming regulars. He earned his second career start in the road win against Rutgers, moving the team to 2-0 since his promotion. Michigan's online fans are generally among the most milquetoast, emasculated racial cuckolds imaginable, so Tschetter is not the hometown favorite you might expect as a "plucky underdog."

Michigan also started Duke grad transfer Joey Baker, who realistically should have gone someplace else to play a bigger role in his swan song season. Hunter Dickinson is a well-known commodity at this point, but he has arguably regressed in each of his three seasons under Juwan Howard. His inconsistency has taken him from a pre-season All American candidate to a borderline all-conference player. Popular theories to explain this decline include NIL money making him soft, lack of NBA interest deflating his motivation, and coach's son Jett Howard jacking up too many shots. Dickinson can still be a matchup nightmare for any small-ball team and gives Michigan a high ceiling in March (if they are able to eke into the tournament).

For their part, Rutgers started two whites (Paul Mulcahy and Cam Spencer) and played a third (Dean Reiber) sparingly. The Scarlet Knights are ahead of Michigan in terms of tourney hopes but have slumped lately and could use a strong finish.

Iowa staged an epic comeback today against Michigan State. Down by 9 with 48 seconds, the Hawkeyes were able to knock down five straight threes to send the game into overtime, eventually winning by 6. The analytics model gave them a 0.3% chance of victory at one point. Iowa is not as fun as usual this year because three of their starters are black, but four of their top seven and five out of nine rotation players are white. Sophomore wing Payton Sandfort hit six 3's and tallied 22 points today.


For the Spartans, Joey Hauser is probably their top player, but he's their only white regular. Michigan State has Jaxon Kohler, Carson Cooper, and Jason Whitens on their bench, so maybe they'll be more interesting next season.

Iowa blew out Indiana at Assembly Hall to officially punch their ticket. Payton Sandfort had five 3's, including this exclamation point that is trending on Twitter now.

This bodes pretty well for Iowa as Indiana is a tough team. They were able to beat Purdue twice this year. Iowa seems to be finishing the season strong. Will be interesting to see how the Big 10 tournament plays out.

Apparently Pistol Pete’s scoring record still stands by 3 points. I might be wrong but seems like this they play more games no?

Detroit Mercy’s season is over, so the record stands. Antoine Davis got 5 seasons due to Covid, but still couldn’t catch Pete’s record set in 3 seasons. Davis went down firing 7/26 from the field.

And there were no 3pt shots when Pete was playing! Sounds like media trying to make something out of nothing without providing full context. I know, huge surprise.

This is awesome news! I'd accepted it as inevitability. The total games discrepancy between Davis and Maravich is 144 to 83, plus the small matter of the three-point line. Many thanks to the young negro gentlemen at Youngstown State for playing with a bit of pride.

Davis had an off-night shooting Thursday, going 7-for-26, including 4-for-16 on 3's. He was double-teamed the entire night, as usual, even on his final shot, when the game was essentially over.

He also was heckled throughout the night by a raucous, sea-of-red crowd of 5,584, which only gave him a modest ovation when he was introduced during pregame warmups, and then again later when he was recognized as the Horizon League player of the year.

The game was a physical one — there were three technical fouls called on players — and things boiled over after the game in the handshake line, when players had to be separated by their coaches, pushing them toward opposite directions. Davis, his mask off, was led off the court by two Titans staffers, and was the target of trash being thrown by a few members of the student section, located 10 feet above the court.

Davis' teammate, Gerald Liddell, picked up one of the pieces of trash and fired it back into the student section. Davis and his dad held their postgame press conferences in the hallway, rather than walk to the upstairs press area, which would've required walking on the court while fans were still in attendance. Police were on the court after the game.

Davis said the heat was turned up in the handshake lane when Youngstown State's Dwayne Cohill told him he didn't deserve to be Horizon League player of the year.

"I wouldn't have said that to him if he would've won it," Antoine said. "At the end of the day, God doesn't like ugly."

Cohill, a first-team all-Horizon League selection who had some support among coaches for the league's player-of-the-year honor given his stature on a championship team, wasn't available to respond to Davis' accusation, when a school spokesman was asked for confirmation. Cohill and Davis battled each other for much of the game, with a mini-altercation leading to a late technical foul on Cohill that sent Davis to the line.

Detroit Mercy's records over the past five seasons have been 11-20, 8-23, 12-10, 14-16, and 14-19. While not elite, Pete Maravich's LSU teams went 14-12, 13-13, and 22-10 between 1967-1970. This is even more impressive considering that the prior two seasons' records were 6-20 and 3-23. Interesting tidbit: both Davis' and Maravich's fathers were their college coaches.

Technically, the College Basketball Invitational could still invite Detroit Mercy with its 14-19 record to play in the postseason. This would be a purely token act of spite against White American legacy - so, not impossible at all.

Colgate just demolished Army to advance to yet another Patriot League championship game, where they will be heavy favorites against either the #6 or #7 conference seed. The current Raiders "dynasty" is one of my all-time favorite low major programs. This year's team starts four whites and plays another two as their primary substitutes. The school packs its small gymnasium with enthusiastic (white) fans, and the (very white) Colgate football team traditionally stands on the floor behind the basket for an intimidating wrinkle on traditional home court advantage.

The head coach Matt Langel will (very likely) be going to his third consecutive March Madness and fourth in five years. I was pleasantly surprised to see his name floated to succeed Mike Bray at Notre Dame. This would be an impressive promotion for him and also a best-case scenario for a Notre Dame program that is traditionally white-friendly but has fallen into a lull in recent years.

This season, Colgate lost a narrow game to Duquesne, trounced a below-par Syracuse team, and got walloped on the road at current #15 Auburn. The Raiders are 17-1 in conference play. The right matchup could facilitate the school's first-ever tourney win this month.

Purdue and Arizona have been really struggling. They both have lost around 3 games each in the last month. They still have great
records and are in the top 10 though. Hoping they just hit some bumps in a long season. It's almost tournament time. Time for
them to get back to playing some great basketball.

Saint Marys continues to win. Very fun to team to root for. Good to see Gonzaga behind Timme playing well too. These two teams
meet tonight in what should be a great game. I'm rooting for Saint Marys as they have alot more of our guys. Hope Timme plays well.

Gonzaga won easily behind 18 points from Drew Timme. He became Gonzaga's All Time Leading Scorer Tonight. Congrats Drew!
