Dogs win 87-85 in 2OT!  For a while it seemed like neither team really wanted to win.

The #1 curse takes down Kansas, which blew it in the last minute and lost to Villanova 56-55.

The Big East's decision to purify will go down as one of the four most morally upright decisions in the history of Western Civilization. The Big East is truly greater than ever before. God has blessed his chosen people too much. Too much blessings! I can't take it any more!

DePaul never makes it easy!! Finish non-conference play at 12-1. The 7-11 conference forecast would likely leave them just off the bubble without 2 BET wins. I think they need 8, but Iowa, TTU, and Minnesota wins all keep looking better.

St. John's is even more surprising with the lead over Arizona at the half. Could be yet another undefeated Saturday for the Big East which is very difficult to believe. I don't even mind not taking this one though when Zona inevitably makes it a game.

Virginia is absolutely garbage (compared to the standard they have set for themselves). I don't see how they could be considered a top 25 team when there is no talent on the roster, just a system defense. I had them 27th entering the day. They'll be fine by virtue of a soft conference. Highly reminiscent of last year's Villanova.

I will now accept my accolades. Losing at JPJ? OUCH!

Will San Diego State jump to #1 next week?

Warren Nolan took until this late hour to publish the new official NET rankings. San Diego State did take the top spot there, and it wasn't particularly close since Kansas tumbled to #7. Only the failed media are keeping San Diego State out of the top 5  since analytics love them and the results validate it.
