17 points at halftime...frigid shooting
Arizona looks lethargic

I think they're in big trouble
And as I say that they wake up a bit  
dpinzow : 3/18/2017 9:59 pm : link
and take a 5 point lead on St. Mary's. Arizona will feel super confident if they get through playing an average game
37-17?

is terrible. Classic cold shooting. It has plagued them all season. 1-13 on threes. Good career for Perrantes. Sorry it has to end this way.
ACC better go 3-0 tomorrow

6 of 9 teams - gone. Two blown the fuck out of the building today alone.

I know Indiana is begging after 20 years to be relevant again but your best bets are Marshall (seems really pissed about being down seeded again) or playing UCLA heartstrings even though UCLA would pay more than you and offer better quality of life and for his kids life versus fuckin Bloomington

was smart they'd offer every penny they can to Gregg Marshall.

But they aren't, so they'll probably go hard after Alford.

They're just simply lacking in physical talent. I wouldn't be surprised if this was Randy Bennett's last game if the CAL job comes calling. He's done as much as he can with that program, which is a helluva lot.

My Zags had the same damn issue they've had several times this year in which they've let teams back into the game despite large second half leads (Arizona, Iowa State, even in the 1 game they lost they had a double digit 2nd half lead). Guys who really should know better at this point made ridiculous unforced errors in the second half. They obviously got lucky with the goal-tending play. The only defense I have of the officials is I (and a lot of other people watching and at the game) didn't even notice it... it happened that fast. I'm just happy to advance. I don't really give a shit if it looks good or not.

I agree. However, I'm sure there are some people like Dan Dakich around the program, who made one of the most asinine comments I've ever heard this morning. These idiots would rather have "Knight guys" than the best coach available.

Also, why would Alford leave UCLA when he knows he is getting the other two Ball brothers (unless he is sick of their dad and wants to get out of there, back to his alma mater)

The younger ball seems to be a prospect, but middle Ball doesn't look impressive at all. That isn't a reason to stay.

Agree. I would not leave UCLA for Indiana for any reason but that just pretty much cements it.

And when Alford figures that out and doesn't start the middle Ball brother, the dad will ask for him to be fired. Maybe Alford would rather go home again instead of dealing with the lavar ball circus

he would be a much better hire for IU than Alford (just a better coach to begin with)

MookGiants : 3/19/2017 4:40 am : link
performance today was pretty much the least shocking thing ever.

You knew the dreadful offensive performance was coming. Just a matter of when.

Virginia isn't going to do better than Bennett, but I also think they have hit their ceiling under him. Maybe this is their ceiling as a program, not just under him. Sweet 16's, 2nd round, the once in every great while Elite Eight.

I don't believe without superior athletes that you can win 4 let alone 6 games in a row in the NCAA tournament playing the style he wants to play. The pace is just way too slow.
the middle ball brother  
MookGiants : 3/19/2017 4:41 am : link
is not a big prospect, and the younger one isn't as good as Lonzo either.

They should have no impact on whether or not Alford leaves UCLA.
Yeah, tough loss  
Cruzin : 3/19/2017 9:10 am : link
Was at an all day baseball clinic in the rain and the cold. Just watched it this morning. Beachem never found his shot, killed us. Farrell dribbling into corners and picking up his dribble, killed us. Carter hitting 3's from inside the tourney emblem painted at half court. Killed us.

Killed my bracket but I'm sure B took Syracse to win it all this year, oh wait.

UVA shows it's true colors, that was uplifting. I mean Florida just crushed them. Beat them worse than ND did in the ACC Tourney.

I'm here for any WV fans who would like to enjoy their win. They played a great game, hitting on high notes in all facets of their game.

Congrats

You run your mouth over and over and over again, and then instead of taking the high road and just shutting the hell up when your team gets their asses kicked, you continue to try to ridicule other fans and teams. At least you waited a day to start up again, but I'm guessing it has less to do with baseball clinics and more to do with finally waking up in that pool of vomit and feces after your team got curb stomped. Thankfully you'll likely be passed out again in another hour or so

They're not the issue, the father is the issue. Lavar has Alford by the short hairs because Lonzo pretty much saved Alford's job (remember Alford's seat was really warm, to say the least, and he has not had a highly successful career as a HC going back to Iowa)

The father will play that card--you're losing because my boys aren't getting the ball most of the time

That Boeheim doesn't want to retire and Hop was like, fuck it, I'm gone. He's from California and will recruit the west really well. Not looking great for the Cuse.
