So many games where a far inferior road team beats a good ranked team. It's insanity. Speaks to the gap being historically low between "top" and "bottom" teams this year.

We always see unseeded road teams win games but it definitely feels more than normal this year.

I don’t what the stats say about that but between all the new #1s, I would think this year is worse than most.

It’s a bad product this year. There is no way around it.

Doesn’t mean March won’t be great but the regular season is total garbage.

Oregon erased a 16 point deficit @ Washington to force OT. We'll see if they avoid the same fate.

I love this Oregon team. Pritchard is fun to watch.

Pritchard nails a fade away 3 from Vancouver with 3.2 seconds left in OT to give Oregon a 3 point lead. Dear God, this kid is nails. Nice win for Oregon. They were getting blown out at the 10 minute mark in the 2nd half.

Getting testy at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Louisville in control early though.

Louisville took a 10 point lead to halftime. Mack's HT interview was classic. Joking saying, "I can't see anyone blowing a lead to Duke, can you?" Seems like a fun guy.

First 90 seconds of the half, Duke has cut the deficit to 4.

I love this matchup. It's the whole experienced college players (LVille) vs. future NBA young guys (Duke). You can see it, Duke is more athletic and talented. Louisville is smarter and more disciplined.

It's a 1 point game with 3:25 left. Best rivalry in the ACC ATM.

Yup. Have a feeling they’ll run it back in March.

Louisville is really good. This CBB season is obviously off the rails but I think they have a great shot at winning the whole thing.

Louisville over Maryland was my pick in November, and dammit, I'm sticking to it no matter what y'all Turgeon hating people say **!
