I didn't realize that Wichita State has moved from the Missouri Valley Conference to the AAC. A Mid-Major no more.

Looking forward to the Champions Classic on Tuesday : 1 Duke vs 2 Michigan State and 4 Kansas vs 5 Kentucky. Four Hall of Fame coaches. Should be fun. Will probably go to the KU watch party in Henderson for that one.

Brad Underwood off to a nice start with Illinois scoring 105 in his debut. After the last 10 years of Weber and Groce it’s nice to finally have hope again.

Not a fan of ESPN’s new scorebug for college basketball.

Interesting scorebug if SECN is the same one.

Bucknell lost to Monmouth in the last minute Friday night. That hurt.

This beatdown by the Hogs hurts much more. Yuck. Doesn't get any easier with the aggressive scheduling: @UNC, @MD this week. Will try to attend the Maryland game.

I guess ARK gets their revenge today. They're welcome to return a game in Lewisburg. Yeah, right. I'm sure their scholars need to go to class.

Yeah, itís the same one. Must be the color combinations because that one isnít the eye sore that the one for Illinois/Tennessee-Martin is on ESPNU.

Frank Williams’s son is a freshman for Illinois. I feel old.

I think the fonts are too small. If you're not going to use a corner bug, then use up the length of the screen.

Re: College basketball 2017-18 regular season thread

KU freshman Billy Preston is being held out of tonight’s game because he was involved in a single car accident, wasn’t hurt, but the KU administration wants a “clearer financial picture” on the car.

Wonder what he was driving?

Yeah Preston seems like bad news. I'm glad they won the game tonight, though I'm not sure they deserved to. They shot like shit but at least they played some great defense. Thanks to their cupcake remaining schedule they could easily be undefeated entering Conference play. Their next game against a ranked team is at WVU 1/15.

The 3 UCLA players in the shoplifting case were suspended indefinitely today.

The school is having a press conference right now and everyone was reading pre-prepared statements.

Illinois and DePaul play each other for the first time in 60 years.

One of the most horrendously officiated games I have seen with 59 fouls called making the game last almost two and a half hours. Illinois gets the win and continues to look so much better under Brad Underwood.

Re: College basketball 2017-18 regular season thread

Went to the Bucknell-Maryland game. Goddamn, that was painful. Tale of 2 halves. Bison could do no wrong in the 1st half, then shit the bed in the 2nd. Then the tease miracle chance at the end. Ugh.

Bucknell is 0-4. Best winless team in college hoops.

First time at Comcrap-Xcrap Center. Great venue. Can't imagine what it's like with a full student crowd.

Really good at getting to the basket and hitting free throws. Outside shot still needs some work.

Excited about next season with Dosunmu and him. Could be one of the top backcourts in the B1G and the best at Illinois since 05.

Yikes, presumptive number one pick Porter Jr. might be out for the season.

Good thing Porter Sr. brought his other son with him or he may have been out of a job.

Will try to stay up and watch the Maui final tonight - Wichita/Notre Dame should be a good one.

PK80 starts tomorrow. That should be interesting.

Oh man, horrible beat if you had VCU +7. Michigan with a runaway uncontested layup at the end wins by 8.

Really needed that to go to OT to get the Over. Oh well. Wichita really folded down the stretch. They should have won that game.
