SEC and Big XII gonna be loaded this year.

Gonzaga gonna be a step down from their last two teams.

Really curious how Villanova progresses after Jay Wright steps down

Is Villanova considered a blue blood now?

Wait Bellarmine beat Louisville…lolllllll

For those of you that don’t know Bellarmine is private university in Louisville with about 2500 students.


Good chance this is violating some rule here…but anyone want to get paid to do “live reporting” at m and w college hoops games hmu.

Very entertaining game MSU Zags on an aircraft carrier.

Sparty up a few in the second. Trying to hang on as Zags mount the comeback try.

Grrr lost by 1. Absolute mugging of MSU player somehow turns into a loose ball foul against him. Horrible call late in the game. College refs.

Just a heads up, Bruce Weber is doing commentary on BTN this season.

Fuck nova.

fuckin’ hunter dickenson. he’s so uncoordinated. feels like he misses a million layups, gets blown by on defense… and finishes with 31/7 on 70% shooting.

also, eastern michigan is a top 25 team. emoni bates is real good.

Foul on the guy with ball. In the dark jersey.

So it’s going to be like this again, Dana?

Sparty in another battle.

This game is great.

Double OT baby. Great set plays by MSU to get dunks to force OT and double OT. UK 2021 POY fouls out and Sparty pulls away in 2OT. That guy is a beast. Thebsis or whatever.

Why didn’t he go pro? Injury late in year??!

Was graded as a second rounder in today’s NBA…whatever happy he is back. Probably wouldn’t be back if it wasn’t for NIL

Yeah he is a trivially amazing college basketball player. UK is different when he is on the floor

NIL is having a good benefit keeping talent at the college level a little longer.
