High expectations for the Terps. That's never a good thing with Turgeon.

Good game last night. Kansas has an interesting Twin Towers lineup.

I have no opinion. Had to work then go to a Continuing Medical Education lecture. Listened to a little on ESPN radio. Sounded like KU was a turnover machine.

Also it looks like the Kansas University sports radio channel has been removed by Tune In. That sucks almost as bad as the loss.

Well this is certainly a bump in the road for Memphis :

They're not a blue blood and not in a power conference, so interesting to see what happens.

UNC skated scot-free, same with L'ville, and I'm sure your Jayhawks will too.

Maryland got the book thrown at them in the early 90s.....for a few free rides. TV rules now. No Power 5 (or 6 for CBB) will ever get a significant penalty.

Your lips to Godís ears. But I think Kansas is going to get hit hard.And I donít think Memphis will get any further punishment since they didnít play with an ineligible player, they just canít play him (like Kansas never played Billy Preston).
Memphis didnít pay Wiseman, they just hired a guy who helped the family four years ago. I get why he would be ineligible to play there, but I donít see why they deserve any further punishment based on that.

They won't. ESPN has so much money sunk into the B12. Fox too.

People have already forgotten about UNC/L'ville. Same will happen with KU. NCAA is toothless. TV rules.

Hell, last I checked, Sean MIller is still coaching at AZ. You're fretting about NOTHING.

Evansville beat Kentucky at Rupp Arena

And the Purple Aces had the lead almost the whole game.

Great job, Aces. They were 40-1 on the money line.

Nice to have some company in the NCAA purgatory, courtesy of Adidas.

I swear being an Arkansas fan is never easy
59 all after 40 minutes and no one scores an OT point until 22 seconds left when Ga Tech hits a jumper then Mason Jones banks in the winner from 3 with 0.1 left

Wow, #3 Michigan State loses to unranked VA Tech in the first round of the Maui Open. So much for the much anticipated showdown with Kansas in the Final.

Saw the stats for Duke - lousy 3-point shooting (which has been the case so far this season) and 16 missed free throws. That's the recipe for a Duke loss.

Also saw a great tweet - SFA and Evansville already have more good road wins than some at-larges will have come March.
