Duke seems to always get the ref's benefit on close calls like that, especially in the tournament.

Michigan State and Maryland in a good game right now. Maryland got outplayed early but bouncing back in the 2nd half.

And yeah, I like Purdue too. Hammons had a monster game today.

ESPN wanted LSU/Ben Simmons in the tournament so bad Laughing Their beatdown today ended that.

I hope Ben Simmons hype decreases. Will give us a bigger chance to get him if we get 2-3 overall. Really hope anyone but Philly wins. Rather have him on our team or on Boston. Don't want talents like that to be on 76ers.

What's your take on Ingram. I barely watch him, but he's pretty much considered 2nd overall across the board which seems to go to us so far.


If we lose our pick I won't stop crying...

Ingram's intriguing but he's so skinny. Even with NBA conditioning I don't know how he holds up. I like Jaylen Brown 2nd, I would be very okay with him on Boston.

I think I love him. Just read about him. Everything about him seems like an 80s movie villain Laughing

I have watched Ingram loads, because his highlights constantly appear on Youtube Laughing

I really really like him, long, can put the ball on the floor and can shoot.

His style of play seems quite Durant-ish, obviously i doubt he'll be anywhere near as good as him but he has the skillset if the physicality doesn't cause him too many troubles to be a problem on the NBA level imo.

Well, he looks to have Durant's build. Not positive so far, as Durant haven't really put on enough weight. He's also extremely young and not fully developed from what I can see. He looks 14.

Knew he could shoot a bit but didn't realize Ingram was shooting 41% from 3 hmm

Jamal Murray broke the Kentucky record for freshman points. I'd take him if we didn't have 10 guards, I think he'll be a really good scorer in the NBA.

That Brooklyn trade makes me so angry. One of the greatest trades if you can pull off the drafting. Amazing really.

The pain to not know if you keep your pick is real. Trading your picks for a 20 game rental 40yo Steve Nash with picks you expected to be high 20s Laughing

Never actually seen him but i remember someone on twitter saying a few months back that the Sixers should draft him seeing as how they desperately need guards and they have two top 10 picks i think Laughing

46% might as well not shoot anything else Laughing

Khalil Felder is on that team, one of the most underrated players in college. He scored nearly 40 against Michigan State.

Check out this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grinnell_System

Grinnell is a Division 3 team, but their entire system is they just run across half court and chuck up 3's. Then they go full court press, if you get by them, they let you score.

One kid on their team scored over 100 points twice Laughing

They have 3 first rounders, 2 in the late first round and their own pick. They get our pick if we don't get a top 3 pick... Hopefully that doesn't happen. They're gonna waste another pick.

I think it does only because it's Division 3. It says the guys son is a coach for a D-League team and he's tried it but I can't imagine it working well there.

I think UConn was already in after yesterday but today's win over Temple sealed it. Played 100 minutes of basketball in 24 hours and didn't look fatigued at all.

When does the tournament begin? I keep telling myself to watch games, but I also miss them, since it's not widely talked about here.

He's really starting to play well, 22 points yesterday, 8 assists just 1 TO today. I think he's too young to carry us this year but next year he'll be a star. Likely will be in the lottery in the '17 draft.

How popular was Jalen Rose back in the 90s? There's a hell of a lot Jalen's coming out in all the sports.

The ESPN CBB guys went off on LSU after getting blown out and only scoring 13 in the 1st half. Rece Davis "we talked way too much about LSU and they got what was coming." Someone said he questions the mentality of Ben Simmons.

They're just pissed cause they overhyped a team that didn't deserve to be.. again. Ben Simmons probably checked out, but I'm not sure I can blame him too much. Bad situation and Jonny Jones is one of the worst coaches in cbb.

Only seen Jamal Murray a couple times but from what I saw, the kid can hoop.

@Grayson Allen, I don't hate any college player more than that skinny white pos. Seriously, look at him. If I ever see him I'll punch him in the face. Give me the assault charge, I don't care.

Enjoyed seeing LSU get beat down also. Purdue with another great team and Hammons was absolutely brilliant.

Will be cheering for Purdue to take down Michigan State in the final and make a statement going into the NCAA tournament.

CBS ruined the selection show by adding an hour. This is way too dragged out. Took them 40 minutes to reveal one region.

Michigan State got jobbed, how did they not get a 1 seed

Feel alright about Wisconsin's selection. I don't know too much about Xavier or Pittsburgh, but I know that they're certainly the type of teams we can take down.

Feel as if we should be beating Pittsburgh fairly easily, and Xavier as far as I know is pretty weak as a two seed. Seeing as we've taken down Maryland, Michigan State, IU and Iowa this year, I would back our chances to at least be competitive with Xavier if not score a #7 over a #2 win.

After that I don't really expect us to be able to do anything past that though tbh. See us getting killed by West Virginia. If we don't get killed by them. If we somehow managed to get past them, we would be killed by UNC (all of this is assuming the higher seeds win and progress of course, which is something you should never really assume).

Essentially, I could see us making the sweet sixteen with a decent tournament and I would be happy with that. Don't expect any more than that and I wouldn't be surprised to see us not make it that far tbh.

I should also say that Big 10 got shafted.

MSU as a 2? IU Purdue and Maryland all as 5's is, imo pretty harsh. I'm happy with a 7 seed but the rest of the teams could probably feel a bit hard done. IU and Maryland especially, I can see Purdue as a 5.

More I think about our seed and place, the more happy I get. Actually quite a good draw for us.

Hope the IU-Kentucky game happens, that will be a great game
