I finally bit the bullet and signed myself up for some cable this week. So, there will be no more messing around when it comes to college hoops. I can check out a good 3-4 games a week and I am pretty high on that. I do fantasy NBA as you know, but NBA is pretty weak to watch. They don't play any sort of defense, don't push the ball up quickly, don't hustle for rebounds, hell half the time they don't look like they are even enjoying themselves.
Well that isn't so for college hoops. There were some pretty big upsets this weekend with Duke falling to Georgetown and Pittsburgh getting beat by St. Johns. Hopefully I will be able to catch the Washington Huskies vs. Oregon Ducks tonight. Might not happen given my current east coast status but we shall see. You know Badger fans are incensed with Wisconsin getting slammed by the Bison of North Dakota State at home. Deadspin had a great recap.
"Really, it was only a matter of time before the homegrown basketball talent in North Dakota just took over. I mean, when you talk about hotbeds for basketball talent, there's New York, Chicago, and Fargo. Was there any doubt that they'd recover from that tough loss to Utah Valley State? Wisconsin had won 27 straight at home against non-conference opponents. Ouch."
