So far, I have only watched the first half. Carr had a great first half!! Tall, natural PG. Great handle and ball skills. Nice shot also!

Duke had 8 total fouls vs RMU.  Is that a record for least fouls?

Bottom line......all calls are for the most part "judgment" calls .......and.......all end game calls should be "reviewable!"

At least in the NCAA tournament.

VERY entertaining RMU game. Amazing that RMU had NO Turnover's in the second half. Only 5 total. And, they scored 81 points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Big guy" skills are MUCH more foot work oriented than hand skills oriented.  They are best learned at young ages.  But, I've know fellows that have learned to dance late in their lives. It CAN be taught to college age players!! BUT it may take lots of focus, hard work and dedication from both player and coach.  Remember big guys playing away from the hoop has been trendy for many years.

My wish list:
1. Cupcake OOC
2. Coach/concentrate on
  a.  Reducing fouls
  b.  Reducing turnovers
  c.  Reducing bad fast/forced shots
3. Coach/concentrate on
  a. Defense/defense/defense  (maybe we can be pretty good guarding the hoop next year)
  b. run shot clock ( we need to keep the total game scoring low )
4. Recruit ( we could use a mature ready for PT quality player or two ) (maybe a grad guy)
5. State of mind
  a. We need to change our style of play (we need to play tougher tighter slower paced defensive oriented basketball )
  b. Positive attitude (IT CAN BE DONE,  IT CAN BE DONE, IT CAN BE DONE)   
  c. Gain a winning attitude in OCC (see section #1 above)   

Here's  hoping.....  :)

Hammons won't be shooting 11 foul shots tomorrow with Frank on him. 
   
         
Good point! Wonder what the over/under will be for total Wisc. fouls!!

Deck seems pretty stacked against a low seed ever having a chance in this tournament...

Don't have a big problem with this. League regular season is paramount!  Top finishers should get big reward.

Oh well...................
Listened to PSU radio broadcast while I watched most of the 2nd half even thought there was about a 10 second delay.
Just too much "bracketology"  talk for me on the ESPN feed.

We do have the best possible draw for us I feel to make a run

Agreed! 

How many wins do we need for the NIT?

At least 3 to be in consideration, 4 to put us in the best position possible.

NIT may like a Pitt - PSU match-up.

I actually think the foul on Newbill was a worse call then the infamous Dickerson call.

Chambers may need to revise his statement.

My 2 cents:
Looks like we have found our place in history!!   ;)
But, seriously, I found the first half entertaining. The second half painful to watch. Just too long. Game ended after 8:15 I believe.
Maybe I'm just worn out from the longggg season.
