    Big 10 in general just chewing through their non conference opponents.

    Wright said they're suuuuper young because they didn't except DiVincenzo and Spellman to blow up and become NBA picks last year. I would guess they'll get their shit together in February and March and be a team nobody wants to play.

    Also Furman earlier beat Loyola, so that's half the Final Four.

    /furiously checks schedule, sighs in relief

    Providence has a freshman named David Duke. He's black, and that is an interesting decision by his parents.

    Man, we allowed 20 points in both halves. And more FGs than forced turnovers. Bummer.

    Michigan demolishes what appears to be a pretty long and athletic Providence team, 66-47.

    This might look dumb in 45 minutes or so, but Duke last night and tonight is not that impressive to me? Athletically impressive, but not even vaguely cohesive. They got like 25 more free throws last night because Duke or they would have lost. And then the Zags are just torching them.

    Well Auburn and Gonzaga are both also great teams. But Auburn never got closer than 5 points and Duke came back against Gonzaga. Any young team is going to struggle sometimes, especially on defense.

    Keep in mind that last year in the PK80, Duke trailed by double digits against Portland State, Texas, and Florida.

    So that was fun. This Michigan team's defense is unreal. Starting to shoot like a Beilein team now.

    @Ringo Hopefully UNC learns from this like Michigan learned from the spanking y'all gave us last year.

    Boilers choke away a lead late against FSU, ACC/Big Ten Challenge splits at 7 each.

    I don't watch college basketball until March because I am a monster, but this came across my news feed and the butthurt made me smile so hard. No idea about the validity of their arguments because, as I said, I am a terrible college basketball viewer

    Wisconsin’s Brad Davison is college basketball’s grossest, best flopper
    The Big Ten has an extensive history of getting its teeth kicked in when it comes to the ACC-Big Ten Challenge, which is going down this week on ESPN. The Big Ten lost this event for its first 10 — ten! — years. Last season, ACC teams won 11 of the 14 games. This is the 20th year of The Challenge, and the Big Ten has only won outright five times. You get the point.

    So, how does the Big Ten actually make it a competition against the ACC this year? By getting back to its roots and playing some good ole fashioned Big Ten Basketball. And by that we mean taking a lot of charges.

    While it wasn't quite a give up call, the extended sequence with the starters on the bench was interesting.

    It should be a teaching moment, but we'll see if anybody was ready to learn. This felt very reminiscent of both the Texas and UCLA games last week

    Michigan blows out another ranked team. 19 over Purdue. UNC's the closest anyone's come so far. I'm not used to a Beilein team being good in November/December.

    Heels giving me some hope here, with a nice win over Gonzaga

    (probably should've been a neutral site game somewhere in the midwest, Zags looked all out of sorts)

    Kentucky next Saturday. EXCITEMENT

    When you have that much talent you always have hope. Still don't really play defense at all and they have to be able to win at a different pace at some point.

    Pace will definitely be an issue against Virginia. Defense though... yes, it's not good, and can definitely improve. I guess I'm just buoyed by the turnover and rebound numbers put up tonight. (not our turnover numbers though, yeesh)

    Unless the other team just absolutely does not miss, then forcing double digit turnovers and leading by double digits in the rebounding margin is a huge plus for the kind of game UNC generally excels at

    Fun but very sloppy game between #7 Auburn and NC State, that should've ended 5 minutes ago *sigh*

    Good to see State knock off a top ten team before ACC play!

    Basketball officiating needs reform. Kentucky/Alabama is basically anything goes for Kentucky right now because they're behind in the last minute. And then repeated lengthy replays that took 20 seconds for the broadcast crew to determine.

    EDIT: Alabama barely holds on. Tried to blow an 11 point lead with like 2 to go, but couldn't.

    Unless it's Pitt and they post a 21% shooting clip for the half

    Yeah that was a weird game. For two top-5 defensive teams there were a ton of layups given up. And for two top-5 offensive teams there were a lot of missed 3s and FTs.

    Losing to a team on a seven game losing streak at home though? That's pretty funny. Bonus: Indiana's best player (note: not Romeo Langford, who sucks) got hurt and missed much of the game.

    After the last few games, I'm starting to feel really good about this Kentucky team. Several guys who can turn it on and take over when needed, they play as a team, they play hard, and Ashton Hagans on defense is fun as hell to watch.

    I don't think I've enjoyed watching a Kentucky team this much since the Anthony Davis team that won the championship in 2012.
