    So I'm a Mizzou fan, which has made this season generally pretty good. But holy **** was today's game bad. Never seen a whole team shoot that poorly. Hope this slump ends really soon.

    Also freaking KU and their luck at the ends of games. Ugh.

    Wandered onto the court at halftime and had to snap my sneaks on it for proof, then crept over to Tater Tot giving the postgame:

    Really awesome to see the game that close, the atmosphere reminded me of college track and made me kinda wistful [face_coffee]

    kansas mentally weak and can’t shoot free throws worth a damn

    give them a regular season title or whatever, but they won’t be around when the games count.

    also tom crean is great in the booth

    I'm really really hoping Oklahoma can finally knock them out as Big 12 Champions for the regular season too. Maybe? Hopefully.

    I mean really they shouldn't have won that one championship they "shared" with K State. But I want them to officially not win the title. Blech.

    First time in my lifetime Duke and Carolina have lost home games on the same day.

    I gotta say - today was a.good day

    What’s troubling North Carolina and can it be fixed?

    My take:

    —None of them can find the damn basket except Joel Berry and occasionally, Theo Pinson and Luke Maye

    —It can be fixed if their practices include a ball with a compass pointing to the damn basket

    But the podcast take is better than mine.

    It's frustrating, because when looking at the numbers, this team is nearly a spitting image of last year's. And the year before's. Both national finalists, one national champ.

    I don't think that the last two recruiting classes have materialized in the way Roy has wanted them to. And I think this year's team is too slow - both physically and especially in on-the-ball decision making. I also think that the ACC is collectively better than last year, to give credit where it is due.

    I think we'll probably make it to the S16 this year, but I cannot see this team as any title threat. If I had to guess, I'd project the last four as Purdue, Nova, Cincinatti, and either Virginia or Duke. Hopefully not both. Purdue to win it all - they are a very sharp team with a great work rate, and Matt Painter is bound for some tournament luck at some point. He's too good not to have more success in the postseason.

    Washington nails a ridiculous 3 at the buzzer to down Arizona.

    Trajectory still moving up after losing the best player in the country last year. Sign of good recruiting, great coaching, and exciting things to come in Seattle.

    Mizzou scraped by with another win to put them back with a winning record in the SEC. With wins against Tennessee amd Kentucky under their belts, we're back on track to be in the tournament. Hope we can keep it up.

    Of course, it would really help if Michael Porter Jr. could be back for or just before the tournament, too... I don't actually think it'll happen. But damn would it be awesome.

    I think Mizzou will be a trendy pick, come tournament time. A bad stretch to start January is probably going to keep them in the 7-10 seed picture, but I'd absolutely get behind them before a team like Kentucky that should make the Final Four, but is more likely to shoot 40% from the stripe against a midmajor and get dropped in the first round.

    Cuonzo is a great coach who I'll always pull for.

    FSU was wrecking UVA until they came back for a close win. Auburn down a handful with 2 to go. Nova and Purdue downed. Tonight's a bloodbath for top 10 teams.

    Good night for hoops in Ohio, though, Inty and Lloyd!
