Default General College Basketball Thread - 2012-13

I'm sorry if this is a duplicate thread, I searched for one and could not find anything.

Saw that the CU Buffs upset #16 Baylor this afternoon and figured that would be a good time to start!

My Purdue Boilermakers got jobbed big time by the refs last night in the final minute of the game. Refs called a flagrant foul which gave villanova 2 free throws AND the ball. Purdue was up by 4 (or 5), that gave nova the momentum and they tied the score. They beat Purdue in OT. Even the announcers kept saying how awful the call was. They gave the W to villanova.

First time I can say I am happy with the NCAA... Shabazz Muhammad was reinstated, UCLA will be a tough out. Will find out next Monday and Tuesday during the legends tournament in NY.

Still not sure how the Buffs pulled that off last night. 4-18 from the line and still win a game against a team with 3 or 4 future NBA players?

I think its BS. Not that he was reinstated, but that he didnt get 9 game suspension.

Selby had to repay less money and got 9 games. Some consistency would be effing nice.

Hope the Buffs win tomorrow night. Would be nice for Tad to get some good press this early in the season. Bye Bye Rugby.

Rick Majerus passed away.

When Rick Majerus decided to take a leave of absence for health reasons, the news was concerning.

When he announced he wasn’t coming back to the Billikens at all, it was alarming.

Now the true extent of Majerus’ health issues has become known. Multiple sources, including Majerus’ protege and current Loyola (Chicago) head coach Porter Moser, have confirmed that Majerus passed away today at the age of 64.

College basketball has certainly lost a great one. RIP, Rick...

Be real nice to see CU get a win tonight at 7-0 Wyoming. They're tied at 33 in the second half.

Kinda weird that as pathetic as the front range schools have been when it comes to football (AF being the exception), all 4 front range schools are 25-1 combined this year in basketball, and the 1 was Air Force losing to CU.

Watched CSU beat Evansville early today. When Hornung gets back it should be fun to watch the battle against CU next week. Go Rams!

Wow, just saw this. Not terribly surprising with his health issues but a sad sad thing. He meant a lot here in Utah. He did the same thing in Utah, taking a leave of absence and not coming back but we were all glad when he began coaching again. He was a great coach here, took the Utes to the championship game in March madness and just a character overall. Thanks Rick and RIP.

ACC regular season champs and also ACC tournament champs.....very proud of Coach L and the Canes.

They won't make a deep run in the tourney cause they are all defense not much offense...but I'll be happy with Sweet 16.

I think it's garbage they're still projecting Duke as the #1. They should put significantly more weight on conference tournaments than they do. I can understand if they want to overlook conference win/loss as things change over a long season but when they get beat in the conference tournament, they should pay the price.

Oregon is a 12 seed. Not good for CU.

Duke got the 2 so Miami may be back in the conversation for a 1.

Louisville pulling the #1 overall and getting the midwest is beautiful. They start in Lexington and move to Indy if they make it. There should be solid Card representation the whole time. Best case scenario overall.

Miami No.2 seed in the East. Could play Colorado in the round of 32.

Colorado vs. Illinois. That's a winnable game for the Buffs. Illinois is an up and down team that can be very hard to beat at their best, though. Winner gets Miami in game two. Tough draw.
