Not as many good games today (can't trump Rivals Week of football, I get that) but there are still quite a few good games.

In time order, the ones that I thought were interesting:
Richmond v Ohio . . . . 1:00 pm
Minny v Stanford . . . . 2:30 pm
VCU v Mizzou . . . . . . . 6:00 pm
Arkansas v Wisky . . . . 7:00 pm
ISU v Northwestern. . . 7:30 pm
Duke v Lou-vull . . . . . 8:30 pm

If I didn't list one that you like, please mention !
By the way, that Atlantis tourney looks great ! Glad that ESPN isn't getting their way with everything. Good to see quality games on other networks. Hope we can be in that one soon. This year, a better tourney than Maui, except for the champion, obviously.

The VCU-Mizzou game should be interesting.

Haith has a nice collection of thugs this year.

Apparently Michael Dixon is being accused of sexual assault. getting pretty interesting on twitter. Former Mizzou guard Kim English (met him, and not a big fan) tweeted his support for Dixon, to which the person accusing responded, then deleted the response.

From what i understand Dixon has been expelled by the student council (or something of that matter), but is appealing the decision to the chancellor. Would be a huge blow to Mizzou.

Well, he did have that annoying quote about not wanting to ever lose to Illinois last year before the game. So, if they kick him out, I guess he'd get his wish. Or I suspect they'll find a way to let him play, in that case we'll just have to shut him up the old fashioned way with a W.

Yep. Mizzou is top 10 good with Dixon. If a council of his peers wants him gone, that's a hell of an inidictment.

Not to get too far gone with this, but why an athlete needs to ever force himself on a female (if true) boggles my mind.

Dixon, Brown, and Kadeem Green who tranfered to Ohio would of made this as deep of a team as IU, and Louisville.

Powell only played a few minutes in their lose to Belmont and Bright unless he is playing today hasn't played since then.

Powell is an interesting prospect but has to prove it against other to players.

Done! Much appreciated.

Randle was 3-19 from the field today. Yikes.

Crazy sequence with like 10 seconds left, Minnesota was bringing it over halfcourt, did a lazy pass, that Powell guy tipped and saved it into the backcort.

Dre Hollins scoops it up at his FT line with 3 seconds left, makes it to about halfcourt before attempting a prayer. Chasson Randle was challenging the shot and just crushed his arm with 0.4 seconds left. Hollins made the FTs to win it.

For where they are currently ranked, I'd say they're bad. They lost to VCU, they lost to Minnesota, they barely beat UNI today.

They have talent every year, but fail to do anything, ever.

Pastner's a grade A recruiter. It remains to be seen what kind of coaching skills he has.

It's year 4 for him. X's and O's wise, I think he's likely in over his head.

He was likely not ready to be a head coach anywhere.

Never beaten a top 25 team or won an NCAA tourney game.

Maybe he should have gone to a lower level to cut his teeth. Learn to do more with less.

Instead he's consistently doing less with more.
