I think that game could tell us a lot or nothing at all.  IF one of those teams can really take over a game because of their matchups, rather than unforced turnovers, that would tell us something.

The 7th time the No.1 seed has been beaten with Minnesota taking down Indiana. This March is going to be crazy

Woah! I was kinda wondering if Minnesota would pull out a win against Indiana last night.. Really wish i could've seen some of that game! Minnesota's not a great team, but they've had some good home wins (and add another here). Better yet, the Zags have a (small) chance of bein #1 at the release of the new polls next week! That would be awesome!
Of course, if the Dukies take care of Miami, they'll certainly jump the Bulldogs. All the more reason I'll be cheerin loud for Miami on Saturday!!!!

Yeah, I think that duke needs to first take care of virginia tonight, which I think they will.  But if they lose, that opens up the door for the Zags.  I could see Miami jumping them or Indiana staying in first (which would be the second time they have lost and remained 1st).

However, I think Gonzaga will get a number 1 seed in the tournament if they win out.  I think BYU tonight and the tournament can be tricky though.  I would have never thought that they would get a 1 seed, seeing how weak the WCC is this year.  But, when it is all said and done, every other team is going to have 4-5 losses when they pick the bracket, so if Zags are sitting with two reasonable losses, they are going to be a 1 seed.

Unbelievable reallyy.  The talent gap between those teams is amazing.  And it isn't like Penn State is all about hustle and teamwork either.

I would be torn choosing between Duke and Virginia. I have nothing against UVA as a program, but i ABSOLUTELY DESPISE their head coach, Tony Bennett. Perhaps the MIR space station will fall out of the sky and land on John Paul Jones arena. That'd be a win in my book lol.

Gonzaga's loss at home against Illinois is glaring argument against a #1 seed this year. The only upside was that the Illini were ranked at the time. If the Zags win out, I believe it hard to really say a 2-loss team shouldn't be in the mix, as all the other contenders have some duping losses of their own.

I didn't catch the entire game, but caught the end of it on Sportscenter. Hell of a play on that steal!


And WOOOOO! As a born-and-bred Spokanite, I couldnt be prouder that Gonzaga reached such accolades as a #1 ranking, as short-lived as it may be. I feel Mark Few's squad has a tendency to play down to their competition at times. Indiana and Duke have a better SOS for the remainder of the season, and either could likely take the reigns. I think the Zags will play better if they lose that #1 ranking before tourney selection begins. Not rooting for them to lose by any means, just would rather see em in a role as the hunter rather than hunted.

The problem is, I don't think they will lose.  just the WCC tournament ahead for team, and only 1 team has a shot at them.    However, I do think they may take offense to not being the overall number 1, and perhaps the committee could still give them a 2 seed if they nearly lose in the WCC tournament (unlikely), and that could make them feel they have a chip on their shoulder.

No no, I wasn't meaning that Gonzaga would have to lose a game to lose the number one spot. With strong conferences comes strong schedules, comes strong conference tournies. Certainly anyone in the top 3, and likely top 4, could upturn the Zags' #1 rating if they go undefeated. Zags with a #1 seed in the tourney would be a SICK bid though :D

Well with Miami, Georgetown, Indiana losing, Michigan looking weak, the number #1 is safe for now.  I think duke winning out and sweeping ACC tourney might be the only threat to the number 1 ranking.

They are definitely vulnerable.  I think the dance is going to be a lot about matchups.  I am curious as to how much regional placement will play a role.  A lot of great teams have locked it down at home and then been vulnerable on the road.  So how will a "neutral" court play out.

That certainly helped! GTown was lookin hot over the last month, too! I'm always inclined to pick those teams that started a bit slow but got on a hot streak in jan/feb. Duke sweeping the rest of their games pretty much would guarantee them the #1 ranking and outright #1 seed.
The #1 poll ranking is just bragging rights. When it comes down to it, it doesn't matter where you rank if you can't win in March.
I'm gonna be boarding for Selection Sunday (Mar. 17), so I'll have to check out the brackets when i get home that evening. No team has shown they're an unstoppable force yet, so we should be lookin at some really good games (and some REALLY ugly brackets) haha.

And not for a number 1 seed, but Michigan state made a statement last night when they needed to, so they'll still be considered a top team going into the conference tourneys despite losing 3 of their last 4.  I am amazed at how tough the big ten is, and think that tournament could be better than ever.

^ Michigan State is always a force when the tournament starts, regardless of their record.  Izzo has a way to getting his team to perform at the highest level in March.  Lots of respect for that program.

The Big 10 is a killer conference for basketball.  Look at the losses for Indiana, Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State - with a few exceptions all of their losses are within the conference.

Outside of the Big 10 I'm picking Duke and Syracuse to go far in the tourney.

Not just losses within their own conference, but mostly losses to each other.  I think those 4 should be in different regions, just so there is a chance of a conference monopoly at the final four.

Duke is a strong pick.  I am also looking at louisville and florida.

I was thinking of riding Georgetown until Villanova controlled them last game.

I'm not so sure about Florida. They've done well, but in a crappy bball conference. They're 4-1 against top 25 teams, but all 4 wins have been at home (the one loss was at Zona). They haven't proven they can win against tough teams on the road/neutral sites, which is really where the elite show their clout.
I wouldn't pick UNM to go terribly far into the tourney, but they could easily be a sweet 16 bid, and possibly an 8. Even in their losses, (with the exception of SDSU, 34 points, wth!), they kept the games competitive. Put em against a team who can control tempo and really slow down the game, and I believe they'd be in trouble.

There doesn't appear to be that outright "obvious" pick this year. Lots of good teams with lot of different looks to the game.

I am definitely less sure about Florida after this last weekend.  I think Duke is moving it's way into the "obvious pick" position. If they win the ACC, I think everybody is picking them because they have all the momentum and a ton of talent.  Where everybody else who has comparable talent have lost 1 or 2 in their last 5 games.

I caught a bit of the Valpo conf. championship game yesterday. I didn't realize it had been so long since they had been in the Tourney! I wish em well, though I doubt to see em out of the first round.

My Cougs (who are playing for nothing but what one could barely call bragging rights) face their arch-rival Huskies tonight. UW took both regular season games (winning by 5 in Pullman, and 4 when at home). Very close games, but I'm hoping WSU can avoid the sweep tonight. <3

Does anyone here watch the Selection Sunday shows? I generally like watchin em and having them talk about the teams. But the 6 hours of drudgery where 42 people make their predictions like they're the oracle.
I'll be snowboarding this weekend, so I'll miss it and have to do a lil bit of reading come Monday :).

Wow... The Michigan/Wisconsin game was totally a tale of 2 halves. 17-20 halftime score to 59-68. Crazy!
Wisconsin is always a tough team to figure out in the tourney. It's felt in recent years he's had a buncha big guys who could play excellent D, but would shoot 3 bombs at will. They were a hell of a team when they got hot, but they could just as easily go 4/22 and lose a game of which they determined the pace. Bo Ryan's team looks to be a bit different this year. Only one starter who's over 6'6. But they shot nearly twice as many 3's as UM did today, which leads me to believe the offensive STRUCTURE hasn't changed. While i enjoy watching the Badgers win, I'd give em 1, maybe 2 wins in the tourney before their dependency on the 3 buries em.

There was cable at the cabin, but no ESPN (WTF?!), so I missed keeping track of the mid stages of the ACC tourney. Watched a bit of the second half of the Miami/UNC game. UNC has had much more tourney success than Miami, and while I normally cheer for the underdog, I felt myself rooting for Roy Williams' team to pull it out. NC was kinda the ACC underdog this season, so I was either cheering for that, or for Roy's kick-ass checkered jacket.

Go Zags!

Honestly from a full-season glance, UNC was the underdog in this game...early season they were less than stellar, and when Roy implemented a line change they really started to pick things up. Miami slaughtered them earlier this year, but today was an amazing game (until the last 3:30).

I can't decide whether I love or hate Roy's super-plaid jacket. He's worn it for a couple seasons now...like today, I couldn't stand it, but a previous time before I was all about him rockin' it. LOL

I looked at the bracket briefly this afternoon, and was quite disgusted to see UNC only at an 8 seed. Get to face Kansas in the 2nd round...WTG NCAA. Glad to see Duke dropped to a 2 seed at least. I was getting seriously pissed to hear them still in the 1-seed discussions AFTER they got beat by Maryland.

I don't know what I'm going to do with my bracket.

I do recall seeing Roy's jacket in seasons past. It's no longer a "new" story, I just like the colors, I guess haha. "Off" year or not, It's hard for me to ever say UNC as an underdog, ESPECIALLY when tourney time is looming haha. Yes Miami did sweep em for the season, convincingly, but UNC is seldom ill-prepared when March rolls around. I wouldn't argue their 8 seed is too far off what I would've expected. They simply lacked the paramount wins they generally accumulate over the course of a season, and had only one more conference win than NC State did (who also received an 8-seed bid).

Some of the seedings do seem misrepresented, but it looks like it could create some really good matchups early on in the tourney. Oregon as a 12 seed is a certain sleeper, and their matchup with OkSt (in an undeserved 5-spot) should be good, regardless of seeding. Saint Louis has had a great season. It'd be cool for the little school to make a run of it. I could see them surprising anyone in the upper half of that region.

As for your bracket, perhaps you could buy a small turtle, and place lettuce bits on teams equidistant from it. Then whichever he chooses to eat becomes your pick. You'll be a shoe-in to take home the bacon! Are you doing any of the espn/yahoo bracket challenges for $$?

Are you talking about the same Florida team who 7-6 on the road (none against teams in the tourney), and 0-6 in games decided by less than 10 points? Solid.

lucky I'd love to have a little turtle heehee but then I'd be distracted playing with a turtle instead of doing my brackets. I will probably do either/both ESPN or Yahoo...going to look at them tonight.

I'm on the road for a couple of days which means I have my nights free to over-analyze the brackets for our office pool.  I'm going to have to scan and email my picks to get my sheets in on time.

Any thoughts on the PAC12? Even with the highest ranked teams UA and Ucla only receiving 6 seeds, I still think the PAC will flop this year....and this is coming from a west coaster. One expert thinks the PAC will get a big donut in the win column in the first round!

Are you talking about the same Florida team who 7-6 on the road (none against teams in the tourney), and 0-6 in games decided by less than 10 points? Solid.

Yep, that one.

I think there is a big possibility that they won't win a game.  But more realistically, I don't think anyone is getting past the round of 32.  They would all be playing WAY up if they advance.

How's everyone think the Gaels will go? Only lost 3 of their last 22 but all to the Zags. I always take an interest in them as there's so many Australians at the school

Nice! I have a feeling that, although I didn't use that name, it will end up being a good descriptor lol.

The second round is not unattainable for a number of teams. UCLA's matchup against the Golden Gophers looks to be pretty balanced (though the loss of Jordan Adams doesn't help). Oregon's match against OkSt will be difficult, but Oregon has shown spurts of brilliance this season (that's been coupled with spurts of crapping their pants). If they can cut down on the turnovers (they averaged 13 per game in the pac12 tourney, despite winning it), that could turn out to be competitive.

In any case it's a big step forward from last year when the Buffs were the only Pac team to get in the mix.

Did anyone create a TruSnow Yahoo group for tourney bracket picks?
No Sig... I'm just not that witty or creative

Wow!! St. Mary's and Davidson almost pull off the upsets. Southern doing a job on the Zags so far. Gotta love the tourney.

Why oh why did I put my faith in Pitt?  I had no reason to, and darn if it didn't ruin my bracket.

Would've been nice to see the Gaels win it but shooting 33% isn't gonna cut it. Memphis had 12 blocks on the back of their big dude with 8

I know Harvard was the underdog, but I was still pulling for New Mexico.  When their college careers end, the Harvard players still graduate with a Harvard degree.
