The U of A Wildcats crushed Wyoming at home tonight by 29 points. They now move to 8-0 on the season.

AZ Wildcats

Azuolas Tubelis 17 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 blocked shot.
Kerr Kriisa 17 points, 5 assists and 1 rebound.

Excellent for Arizona! Kriisa is also averaging 1.3 steals on the year. 5:1 assist to turnover ratio. Good looking young PG.

Wisconsin battled back to a victory, after a pathetic showing in the first half. Down 20 they ended up winning 64-59. Admittedly, their Star (mixed) SG Davis. Very good and dynamic scorer.

Davison had 8pts, 4reb, 3ast

Wahl had 7pts and 12reb

Vogt had 9pts and 6reb

I missed the game but checked the score and they were down with about 4 minutes left. So happy they came back and won. Go Badgers!

The Arizona Wildcats play Illinois on the road today. They had to UBER to get there. This may not bode well for them as they may be tired. I hope
not as they are ranked 11th in the nation and undefeated!

Thanks for the notice, I'll be watching!

Caught some of the Syracuse loss today. Tough loss for our gym rats, who played well for the most part. I hope they can build on these early season losses.

That sucks Syracuse lost. They are one of my favorite teams to watch. They need to get some more chemistry as the season continues but I expect them to do well.

The U of A Wildcats pulled out a tough win after their long Uber Rides to get to Illinios. They won by a score of 83-79. Arizona is 9-0 on the season and should move into the top 10 in the next poll.

Kerr Kriisa 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. He was red hot in the 2nd half after a slow start.
Azuolas Tubelis 16 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals and 1 blocked shot. Talk about doing everything!

Extremely impressed with Arizona's duo! Kerr Kriisa is as smooth as they come. Really like his game.

I don’t think the Davidson Wildcats have been mentioned yet for this season but they are worth talking about! Last night they upset #10 Alabama in a total Caste matchup. Davidson starts 4 White athletes and a Korean. Alabama on the other hand, well you can just guess their makeup.

Austrian Luka (a great basketball name) Brajkovic lead the way with 22 points and 7 rebounds. Guard Mike Jones added 21. The floor general is a familiar name in Foster Loyer. In his 4th year, after escaping Izzo’s Michigan State plantation, Foster is having a breakout finally after being a pretty high recruit. He had 11 points and 8 assists, which is actually a down scoring night as he’s averaging 15.2 ppg. Rounding things out, they even have an additional White athlete off the bench making for 5 of their 8 rotation guys being our guys (and 6 of 8 if you’re talking “caste-busters”).

Great for Foster Loyer. He was insulted and impugned by MSU fans and rival DWFs alike throughout his tenure in East Lansing. Maybe he wasn't "the problem" after all.

Loyer's younger brother Fletcher is committed to Purdue for next year. He's thought to be one of two realistic finalists for Indiana's Mr. Basketball award this season. He's (at least) a few inches taller than Foster and projects to SG at the moment.

Foster Loyer's lead recruiter at MSU was former assistant coach Dane Fife, who has since moved on to the same position at Indiana. Dane Fife (along with his brother Dugan) was a former white Big Ten point guard himself and doesn't seem to wear melanin-tinted goggles during his player evaluations. Fife has so far recruited Ohio PG Gabe Cupps (a "mere" 3-star recruit) to Indiana's 2023 class.

Good on Davidson! They are a consistent CF approved Mid Major. Year in and year out.

I saw an article on this guy and looked him up on youtube. As the saying goes looks can be deceiving.

Lol!! That fat boy has some skills! Just walking up and down the court stroking threes, dropping dimes and not really giving a ****!

A few days late but Auburn forward Walker Kessler had a rare variety of triple double. Against #16 LSU, Kessler had 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 blocks!! An impressive young star to keep an eye.

Foster Loyer is crushing it for 12-2 Davidson. I can't see him in the NBA, but maybe I've just been conditioned to think that way. This CBS blurb is very flattering.

Dribble Handoff: College basketball's top under-the-radar players who could be potential stars
You may not have heard of these players yet, but they deserve some attention for their play in the 2021-22 season

Foster Loyer, Davidson
You might remember Foster Loyer from his time at Michigan State, where he was a role player for three years for Tom Izzo. He never averaged more than 16.6 minutes, or 4.4 points, per game. So, understandably, he decided to transfer to a place that would give him a better opportunity. That place is Davidson. And Loyer is now among the biggest reasons why the Wildcats are off to a 12-2 start featuring a win over Alabama.


CBS Sports Bracketology Expert Jerry Palm has Davidson as a No. 11 seed in his latest bracket

So Bob McKillop's team is on track to make the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in a 10-tournament span, thanks in part to the addition of Loyer, who is averaging 16.2 points and 3.3 assists in 27.6 minutes per game. The 6-foot guard is making 51.2% of the 6.3 3-pointers he's attempting per contest and reminding everybody that going to the biggest school isn't always preferable to enrolling at the school where you might fit best and flourish. -- Gary Parrish

Kansas 6'-6" Christian Braun had this highlight reel fast break dunk today off his own steal!

This kid has everything you would want in an all around player. Fantastic Dunk and he showed off some amazing hops. I like how hard he dunked it and he was not gonna
be blocked for anything. That's what they call a Poster Dunk! Kid reminds me alot of Tyler Herro and hopefully the NBA is taking notice.

Disappointed to see CF favorites Davidson and Gonzaga be amongst the strictest in enforcing Covaids.

I saw Wisconsin forward Ben Carlson voluntarily wearing a paper mask DURING A GAME earlier this month. Apparently, he’d missed the previous game just due to contract tracing and was electing to deprive himself of oxygen so as to not asymptomatically transmit the covid in case he did in fact have it. I tried to purge this image from my memory, but obviously that didn’t work. Rules are made for the people who will follow them.

I noticed that too, dork from Minneapolis suburbs.
