    NCAA hoops: 2016-2017 edition

    Exhibition games are underway. If you can call them "games".

    Kentucky: 156
    Asbury: 63

    Not a typo.

    They may have had the equipment manager and towel boy playing as reserves. They had Smith retire due to an ACL injury (his third in 30 months), Comanche is out for academic reasons, and Trier is not suiting up for games for unknown reasons. I thought I read where they only had 7 scholarship players available for one exhibition game.
    Dyslexics of the world, untie!

    So Chris Reyes made his debut as a Wave tonight. Dude shoots 10-11 and scores a solid 20 points.

    I watched Oregon yesterday. They lost, but they are clearly good as expected. Athletic ballers all over the place. I think Dillon Brooks got a new tattoo on his chest.

    The Pac-12 so far:

    Arizona, 1 good win (MSU), no losses, Lousy Finn who should have been a Ute is tearing it up.
    CU, loss to Notre Dame
    Cal, loss to SDSU
    UW, loss to Yale
    ASU, losses to UNI and Davidson
    WSU, losses to Creighton, and Loyola (chicago)
    Oregon, losses to Baylor and Georgetown
    OSU, losses to Lamar and Nevada
    USC, a good win (@ Texas A&M)
    UCLA, nothing really
    Utah, nothing at all
    Stanford, wins vs Harvard and CSU (are those good wins?)

    So the conference has two good wins so far. Tennessee/Oregon and Texas/CU today.

    Oregon/Tennessee going to OT on ESPN2.

    Edit: Brooks with the game winning 3.

    Giac resigns at Drake. I think he is probably a good assistant coach, but not a head coach.

    Wonder what Mark Few thinks of all of this.

    Xavier with back to back road losses. We are not going to Cincy at a good time.

    Are you kidding?! They're going to be absolutely demoralized. They're going to look across at Van Dyke, and Rawson, and Johnson and tell each other, there's no way we can hang with these guys. And we roll.

    I hope that whenever anyone thinking of hiring a head basketball coach asks Few for a recommendation, he gives one, but adds a standard caveat:

    "I must disclose that I once enthusiastically recommended Ray Giacoletti as a D1 head coach."

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    There's something wrong with this world if Bryce Alford can be a starter on a top 5 team.

    You can calm your nerves when you realize that its because of Ball and despite Alford.

    Iowa coach refuses to shake hands with North Dakota players and coaches after a North Dakota player steels the ball from an Iowa player at the end of the game and tries to score: http://www.cbssports.com/college-bas...out-handshake/
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    What will Grayson Allen learn from his suspension? Here's some advice

    What do you all think?

    I didn't read it, but I think there is some potential for addition by subtraction for Duke. Allen has not been shooting well, and he's a bit out of control. This is a great chance for Frank Jackson.

    Who do y'all follow on twitter for national college basketball? I have a list of guys I like for football, but I can't really find anyone for basketball. Luke Winn of SI hardly ever posts. Seth Davis of SI spams my feed with non-sports stuff, and his basketball stuff is rarely insightful. Goodman of ESPN posts about nearly every roster move across the country but doesn't give much by way of opinion or analysis.
