    VCU/UVa is on right now in the 2nd half, and VCU just cut a 10 point lead to two.

    Woof. Huskies are getting whipped by Va Tech. I'm sure there is a joke in there somewhere.

    UCLA goes down to Creighton.

    Mizzou is up by 2 over Emporia State late in the 2nd half. I think Missouri is just not good.

    Cal choked their game away as well. They were up big on the Shockers and eventually gave it away.

    Big night for basketball fans. UNC vs MSU. A&M vs USC. Duke vs Florida.

    ACC/Big10 Challenge starts tonight. Not sure why we didn't create this with the Big12 before the SEC did. We could still do the Big East, though!

    Not sure where else to put this:

    Thanks. I believed he played a bit in the game against Iowa State.

    Gonzaga loses to Villanova in their last meaningful basketball game until March.

    Crazy. How does Few convince these guys that an annual hibernation is a good idea?

    Why does the big10 play conference games right now? Then they go back to non conference until January

    For those of you in the know, what's the best way to purchase NCAA tournament tickets? I'm looking at Boise for 1st/2nd round games but not sure where to look. A guick google search and I just get more confused. Are prices per game? per day?

    Prices are per session. There are 3 sessions, of 2 games each. 2 sessions on the first day, one session on the 2nd day. You can buy a full session package if you buy early enough, or can find someone selling on the secondary market.

    You'll probably have to buy from the secondary market at this point. They usually go on sale 8 months in advance, and sell out pretty quickly. Not sure what the best secondary market would be in Boise, other than Stubhub.

    Maybe he’d have more luck at Spudhub.

    EDIT: No. But my autocorrect is.

    Miami spoils UNC's senior night with a 40 foot game winning three pointer. Sweet.

    Bubble games tonight:

    Providence (Last Four In - 11 Seed) vs. Xavier
    Pittsburgh vs. Notre Dame (Next Four Out - below us on the list)
    Texas A&M (8 Seed) vs. Georgia
    Florida St. (9 Seed) vs. Clemson
    Syracuse (First four out) vs. Boston College


    In other news, Ole Miss, Butler, UNLV and Utah St. are all in action tonight, which may marginally help our RPI, but not by much.

    They wanted to hold it in Madison Square Garden, and this is the week that worked for that.

    The end of the UVA game last night was one for the ages. Down by 4 with 0.9 sec left, and they came back to beat Louisville. In fact, they scored 8 points in the final 7 seconds.

    Lots of bubble teams picking up big wins today all around the country. I'll be interested to see what the projections look like heading into league tournaments (Sans the Big 10).

    Utah ranks 7th for quadrant 3 (Just the UNLV game keeping them from 7-0)
    Utah ranks 1st for quadrant 4 (USC and Providence getting in with +220 RPI losses is sickening)

    Let me know if there are other teams you'd like me to pull a report on.
