Clemson finally wins in Chapel Hill.  That was a crazy streak.

68-58 with 2:08 to go in regulation. 

 

Brutal.

Purdue putting it on Sparty at home. Road teams having a tough time of it in the Big 10 this year so far.

So hard to win on the road, especially in a good conference.

MSU came into that game with the #1 most efficient offense in the country.

Purdue was 77th in defensive efficiency.

MSU scores 42 points.

Unreal.

The state of offenses in College Basketball right now is disgusting. It's become really hard to watch.

I don’t think this is viewed as a particularly great draft and the 2 best players in it have barely played this year.

The college game is down this year, which speaks to the loss of talent and down recruiting classes.

OTOH, you may have more guys staying longer than normal, which means you could really have some great teams in the next year or 2.

"Big Ten Teams at Home" are the best team in College Basketball this season.

So Baylor jumps Duke because they won at Kansas.

Again, not a huge deal but the inconsistency of the voting is astounding to me.

Duke mows through a few teams last week and the Zags struggle to beat Pepperdine but Duke doesn’t leap them.

This week, Duke won a game on the road and crushed Wake at home (all without one of the better players) and they get jumped over.

I guess I just don’t get the thought process behind those decisions.

And if you are going to have Baylor leap Duke, how could you not have them bump out Gonzaga too? Seems to me that if you like them better than Duke (or you put that much weight on the Kansas win), you would elevate them above the Zags as well.

I agree with this.  

Lack of post play, lack of disciplined offense, and lack of mid range shot making.  Dribble, dribble, hoist a 3.

Who knew Turgeon was a visionary.  These have been Maryland problems since he got here.

 

Edit, did not want to forget the one and done crap.  IMO, at least part of the problem with the above.

Clemson's a Basketball school, and North Carolina's a Football school!

 

Insanity!

Duke played so bad tonight...dealing with injuries too, so some guys had to play more than you would like..which showed in the stats.

Out rebounded, lots of fouling and turnovers..just didn’t look ready to go all out and Clemson wanted it more.

Good for them. Nice win for them.
