When you guys get a second, google Varez Ward. Played Basketball at Auburn a few years ago but got kicked off the team for point shaving. 

 

Not surprisingly, he signed up with me to be a client earlier today.

Games like these are how you increase non-conference basketball popularity.

 

It will never get the attention of the average sports fan because of college and professional football at the peaks of their season, but these juggernaut, early-season games between elite schools are so much more entertaining than playing cupcakes like Northern Southwest Montana State Technical University.

Yep...I mean, I get why you play those games. They are glorified exhibition games and the teams need them practice before conference season begins..still, they kind of suck.

Rightly so. 

 

good to see a few UNC's in the final four. That would be a huge accomplishment for this squad.

Arizona with only one timeout remaining with 6 minutes left in a battle at Pearl Harbor vs Michigan State. Could play a factor. Great game.
