Bruce Weber has some sort of a bromance with Gonzaga as a whole. No matter what team he's coaching, you can almost guarantee they're gonna play the Zags. :rolleyes:

So many reasons to root for Gonzaga in this one.

Yep, just realized I put Kansas instead of KSU. But I'll be paying attention to that one for sure. Also butler vs Indiana will be an interesting one to say the least. Let's go Bulldogs!

Seriously?

If Gonzaga wins, that makes our win against them worth more. What part of that do you not understand?

I'm watching Pineapple Express instead of the game lol : )

I see that IU is losing at the moment though...

I guess Maui wasn't such a bad tournament after all?

Illinois should have barely beat Gonzaga and Butler, then maybe people would have thought they were more quality of teams.

Not sure who I want to win this game. Butler or Indiana. Would love to see an undefeated Indiana team lose their first in the house of paign but if butler wins our maui title looks much better.

Hate Indiana. I wish they could lose every game, and it would improve our RPI as a bonus, if butler wins.

Uhh should be rooting for Butler. Makes our win over them look so much more impressive.

I'm watching the Indiana game now, and I'm surprised by their defensive intensity. They look good on D. Still hate them tho lol

Tom is starting to look pale. May need to schedule a spray tanning session soon.

Nice 3 by Butler to end the half.

Butler hanging with IU at the half. How cool would it be if Butler knocked off the Hoosiers? Go Bulldogs!

They're hanging in there despite not getting a ton of production from Clarke yet. If he gets going then they'll be right there.

They've looked pretty good. But IU's certainly tough and they didn't play a great 1st half either.

Louisville was in a big hole against Memphis. Down 16 but now only down 8. Big rivalry game and things are starting to get very chippy.

A Louisville loss would help us rise in the rankings if we can take care of business tomorrow and against Mizzou.

It seems like there are a lot of up and down teams this year.

Indiana has missed more FT's than Butler has attempted. How do they always get all the calls?

They're so hard to play because they absolutely mug you on defense, but no call, and then if you get within 3 feet of Zeller, it's an automatic foul.
