    WV is definitely strong this year. FSU is looking good, lost a few games very late.

    Yep, the ACC as a whole is strong. I believe y'all have to come to Tallahassee later this year. We'll repay the favor.

    Y'all just play in that powder puff conference. The ACC is frigging brutal! Come get you some whenever you feel froggy.

    Comparing any conference in Basketball to the ACC is comical...

    Virginia, North Carolina, Duke, Miami, FSU, Notre Dame, Syracusem Louisville...

    The problem is going to be coming out of that Murderers Row and the ACC tournament with enough legs left to fight through the NCAA tournament. There are really no cupcakes to rest your starters once ACC play begins.

    Congrats, apparently FSU forgot there are two halves to play. Great comeback by the Cards.

    Since the title of this thread doesn't specify:

    The Louisville women's team (currently #3 in the country) boat raced #2 Notre Dame last night in the KFC Yum! Center. 100-67. They shot almost 70% from the field in the first quarter and just poured it on from there. And, yes, we do go up to Connecticut February 12th.

    These girls are legit.

    The ACC girls basketball is as tough as the ACC men. It's a brutal basketball conference all around.

    Wichita State is going to have a nice run this year I think.

    Well at about the 8:00 mark in the 2nd half of the Duke game, I thought this Gator team was a Final Four contender. I still think they'll get in at this point, but there's probably a good 4 or 5 losses left on this schedule. I'd be happy with a spot in the Sweet 16.

    Defense just isn’t the same this year, plus they play too streaky...I could see an Elite 8 appearance, or a loss in the Round of 32...Boom or Bust.

    It took 2 OTs but we finally got a win in South Bend. First one since I was a senior in high school (1994).

    Nice to see St. Mary's get a win at Gonzaga. Seems like they pull a win out in Moraga here or there every once in awhile, but they always get beat in SpoCompton.

    WVU got screwed by the refs at Kansas, though that was a bad choke job no matter how you cut it...still...35 FTs to 2 is a bad disparity.
    Northwestern choked bad against Michigan State.

    Wichita State-Cincy is a good game today.

    Oklahoma's once great season's seemed to finally go down in flames.

    The Pac 10..er...12 is a miserable conference again.

    Wichita State finally looks like they've got it put together.

    Is Xavier for real this year? Could this be the year they actually do something? Seems like they always get to about the Sweet 16 and choke.

    Big East, for being as small as it's become, actually seems to have some good teams.

    I watched some of Houston - SMU last night. Houston is pretty good, better than their 25 ranking I think.

    The top 3 teams in the AAC are damn fine teams (Cincy, Wichita, Houston)...could give anyone a run for their money in the NCAAs.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Deng Adel admitted last night in post game interviews that the ref told him he couldn't move (as is the responsibility of a ref) on the out of bounds play after the lane violation...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...but he did anyway...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...and that he should have just thrown the ball to half court...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    That win probably would have put L'ville in the Tournament, no? What a way to lose.

    Pretty much. We've still got NC State on Saturday to get to 10 conference wins. I think that gets us in, otherwise we'll have to win a few in the ACC tournament next week.

    They've performed admirably in the face of all the BS that's gone on prior to the season starting. Fun team to watch.

    Nice win by the Cards over the Noles...I’d imagine that gets them in now.

    I love this time of year.

    I think they're in now too. But a win against UVA tomorrow wouldn't hurt...
