Another few good options. If they can get those 3, Xavier, and a couple solid A10 programs, it will be very solid BB conference.
I would think those 7 schools would take from the WCC since a lot of the schools there are private/catholic uni's. if they are thinking about making a national basketball conference (East/West)

where did Brandon Paul come from? looks like Dwayne Wade in some games.
Michigan is overrated though. can't believe how horrible the Pac12 has been in the last 5 years. used to be a power conference in basketball.

I will never forget last year when Brandon Paul scored 41 points in a win over Ohio State. Dude couldn't miss. He has games where he looks unstoppable!!

Pac12 wasn't too bad last year, just surprising to see how far USC has fallen. Terrible.

Over the past 3-4 years, I've really grown to appreciate college basketball more than the NBA game.

Butler has done a great job of making this an up and down game and taking it to Indiana. They've taken Zeller out of the equation.

Yeah zeller has bee Exploited particularly on the defensive glass. I just like everything About Butler, they play ball the way it should be played. They don't necessarily have the top tier talent but they have a squad of guys who buy into the system and are obviously extremely well coached. the result is a team that plays better than the sum of its Parts. Great team ball.

Yep. I always hated when some people judge CBB on one game in a tourney. There is really a lot of good BB.

Sucks I missed this game!!!!! Looked like a great one!!!

It's why Butler is such a hard out in the tournament. They're just so well coached. I think it's a matter of time (and I can't remember the guy's name) before he ends up at a big rebuilding program. He's such a young guy too.

he's already had high profile job offers from programs like Illinois and turned them down. He's a local guy and he likes being in state.

Brad Stevens has it made. I don't see him leaving for some time at Butler. Like Windex said he has already turned down some good BCS schools.

He is paid well, King at Butler, well known, family loves it there. Shows he can win there and get to the NC game. I think the ONLY way he leaves Butler in the future is if a job like Duke, UNC open up and offer him. Besides that, no reason for him to go anywhere. He is living life!

If you got some time to kill, I'd suggest watching these videos. Pretty interesting.

Calipari looked shit scared yesterday during the early second half of the game against Louisville. Seriously. He looked genuinely horrified. If you dislike him, you would have loved that moment.
