  3. lets go spartans. love izzo for scheduling tough games early so his guys know how hard they need to work the whole season to get to the championship
    Add Donkey Kong to Rail
  4. yeah gotta respect Izzo for lining up such serious competition early, his team has alot of potential too, they dominate the boards and its not entirely unpossible that they beat Duke

  5. Other than the obvious two the other games that look good to me are Belmont at Memphis, Kent St at WV and Florida at Ohio State. I guess the last one is kinda obvious also. Didnt Belmont just lose to Duke by 1? They always perform well in the tourney and I think they'll play with Memphis all game. Kent St always seems solid and WV is a little down this year. Both bigger schools are at home though so that obviously helps a lot.

    San Diego St. @ Baylor tho? how is Kent-WVU more interesting than that?

    some good stuff in here: http://insider.espn.go.com/mens-coll...n-john-gasaway

    have to be insider tho. he picked the top 7 games to analyze. Wazzu/Zags, Kent/WVU, Belmont/Memphis, SDSU/Baylor and the obv big 3 games

  8. Just a little advice to peoe that will be degenning for over 24 hours straight (mnf-late bbl games tomorrow) last year in this 24 marathon I am pretty sure only 3 favorites covered out of the 12 games. Keep that in mind this year.

  9. I'll watch the Baylor SDSU matchup but I doubt its that good of a game. SDSU doesnt have anybody back.
    Add XXEDPXX to Rail
  10. they lost a ton, but still will compete for the MWC title and an NCAA bid. should be a good game. Steve Fisher is a great coach. plus, we aren't at full strength yet with no Perry Jones and we have 4 new guys in our rotation, including 3 guards

  11. Top 4 games who ya'll got?
    Add MyJobisYou to Rail
  12. ^^^^Waco already listed em
    So jacked i got the day off tommorow and the PVR cleared (in case I do need some sleep over the next day or so.) After seeing baylor live this summer plus brady heslip and knowing the love waco has for em I kinda have a sweet spot for them and hope they crush in the B12 this yr. Should still be a decent matchup with PJ3 out for one more.

    Gonna be a fun day of hoops and I hope a few of the off time games arent too terrible so I can stay awake for em.

  21. I'm changing my screenname to kevinpangos.

    Doris Burke should be fired on the spot for mentioning Pargo in the same sentence as Dickau and Stepp.

    Lol at tying Dickau's record in his first career start. Although Dickau did it more than once...and one time he made nine 3s in the first half (7-7 in a 4 min stretch) then didn't even shoot in the 2nd half because it was a blowout.

  30. Great first game regarding Pangos he was Ontario Baller of the year and just played in his hometown and opted out of prep school.he played on jr national team but we don't get the best coverage here of it so didn't see. He played obv real sick hopefully can be good to hit 4-5 triples a game for them lots of mistakes but that'll take time to cure I think mark few must have some good connections here as he rolls lots of Canucks
