Gonzaga all the way, Josh Heytvelt is going to be the X-factor, he's going to have to make Hasheem Thabeet work for all his points and also try his hardest
get in some offensive rhythm against a monster shot-blocker.

Go Orange! It'll be tough without Devendorf though, and Johnny Flynn is questionable to play due to a leg injury. Without him they would be toast.

Great win for the Spartans. Gotta love how Summers can go for the big slam or pull up for 3.

Duke blew out Xavier in the first half but at least Xavier pulled it to a closer final margin

MSU is scary good with Suton!

It is about time we were at full strength, I think when we are clicking like this the only team that would consistantly beat MSU is UNC. I like our chances against every other team when we play this well. Walton played awesome D today on Abrams and even with two of our best players (Morgan and Allen) having bad days we were able to pull it off. Awesome game today.

Purdue 76, Davidson 58 - final.

We looked better than we have all year in the first 10 minutes, this was the first time we didn't have a slow start. Hummel was a stud as usual, 18 points 15 rebounds.

duke just made a statement against xavier. Xavier did not look like a top 10 team at all and duke dominated basically from the opening tip to the end of the game.

Yeah I was at the game and did not expect it to be as lopsided as it was but was very glad to see Duke dominate at every facet of the game :clap:

Great game by 'Cuse. They'll probably stay in the top 15 now.

Imagine if they didn't lose to ****ing Cleveland State. :pity: They'd be at least in the top 9. :(

Duke took care of business, definitely!

Hopefully the ESPN poll puts Purdue above 18 now, they should realize that our only two losses came against two great teams. We've trampled every team we've played except OU and Duke.

Butler beats #12 Xavier 74-65. Awesome game. Good win for Butler on the road. Should get them into the top 25.
