Impressive comeback win for Memphis at Tennessee.  I'm starting to believe Penny Hardaway is a pretty good college coach.

Gonzaga beats Arizona. Have now beaten 9 consecutive Pac 12 teams.

I've seen some dumb basketball plays, but this one is an all-time contender:

North Carolina (without an injured Cole Anthony) loses at home to Wofford, 68-64.  Oddly enough, two years ago Wofford also won by 4 at UNC.

I can't believe that stat that flashed on the screen - first team to win back-to-back games in Chapel Hill since Georgia Tech 84-85. Really? Duke never accomplished it? I read three times looking for a 'ranked' or 'unranked' qualifier.

Looks like you're right and they're wrong.  According to sports-reference.com, Duke won in Chapel Hill on 3/7/15 (84-77) and then again on 2/17/16 (74-73).

Ohio State loses by 13 to 4-5 Minnesota.  Home teams are now 13-0 this season in Big 10 conference games.

WEEK 6 RESULTS (all the games finished at a reasonable time for once)

RINO Tom eked out a win, thanks to the upsets by Rutgers and Oklahoma State (he was the only person to pick either of them).

17 RINO Tom
16 dfw, GeorgiaModerate, sjoyce, Sprouts
14 Jgibson
13 Illiniwek

The average score was 15.4, up just a bit from last week.

There were 10 unanimous picks, 7 of them correct:

Colorado-Colo. State
Indiana-Nebraska
Penn State-Alabama
DePaul-UIC
Xavier-Wake Forest (wrong)
Wichita State-Oklahoma
New Mexico-N.M. State
North Carolina-Wofford (wrong)
Ohio State-Minnesota (wrong)
VCU-Missouri State

There were 6 picks with a single dissenter:

Michigan-Oregon (dissenter was right)
Tennessee-Memphis (dissenter was right)
Auburn-St. Louis
Seton Hall-Rutgers (dissenter was right)
N.C. State-UNCG
Houson-Oklahoma State (dissenter was right)

Overall results:

100 sjoyce
99 dfw, Sprouts
93 GeorgiaModerate
91 Illiniwek
88 JGibson
85 RINO Tom
83 YE

Bart Torvik now has UNC as 11% chance of receiving an NCAA Tournament bid. Insanity. I don't buy that, and another source still has it at 73%, but I think it's definitely between those two, but probably at least 40-50% depending on injury timeframe. They are #95 in the NET Rankings released today, so maybe I am too bullish!

NC State (#50) is simply lucky to have gotten their first Q1 win yesterday. They still have realistic opportunities @Syracuse, @UNC, and vs. Florida State/Duke/Louisville, but the schedule is only slightly more difficult than last year. Four absolutely dreadful wins on there.

NET Rankings Out! Some notables:
#3 San Diego State
#4 Butler
#5 Baylor
#9 Stanford (Similar to Erik Haslam, unsurprisingly)
#10 Dayton
#19 Liberty
#20 Duquesne
#22 Richmond
#43 DePaul

Penn State in the top 25.  Kind of bummed the Illini don't even have a vote in the AP Poll yet (we do have some in the Coaches' Poll), but I guess it's understandable.  Just keep winnin'. Smiley

On a side note, even though it is for some inexplicable reason on the SEC Network this year, Illinois-Missouri is this Saturday in St. Louis.  To my knowledge, it's one of the very few rivalries in college basketball that uses a Texas-Oklahoma or Florida-Georgia setup with the crowd split 50/50.  It has lost a BIT of its appeal over the last several years, but it is routinely one of my favorite sporting events of the year, and it is a truly unique atmosphere.  I must admit, it's often my "super bowl" of the non-conference, and I'd say it's very likely Missouri is our "biggest rival."

A hilarious look at the Big Ten standings right now (after conference record, I sorted by AP ranking, overall record and then alphabetically):

#15 Michigan State: 1-0 (7-3)

#5 Ohio State: 1-1 (9-1)
#7 Maryland: 1-1 (10-1)
#14 Michigan: 1-1 (8-3)
#23 Penn State: 1-1 (9-2)
Indiana: 1-1 (10-1)
Illinois: 1-1 (8-3)
Iowa: 1-1 (8-3)
Rutgers: 1-1 (8-3)
Purdue: 1-1 (6-4)
Minnesota: 1-1 (5-5)
Wisconsin: 1-1 (5-5)
Nebraska: 1-1 (5-6)

Northwestern: 0-1 (5-4)

No home team has lost a game yet, though I predict that streak to come to an end on Wednesday when MSU visits Northwestern, but ... honestly, who knows??  That game wraps up Big Ten play until the new year, and it would be absolutely hilarious to have every single team tied at 1-1, haha.

Alonzo Verge in his first season at ASU had a career night, scoring 43 points, as ASU proceeded to lose to St. Mary's 96-56.  Only two other players scored for ASU and ASU had their full roster available.

In a game I nearly went to in person, Kentucky losses to Utah. Wacky CBB season continues.

Though I am going to the Kentucky/Ohio State and UCLA/UNC double header on Saturday. Considering I've been to every Oklahoma home game this year as well, I may have a shot (pun intended) at a personal record for college basketball games I attend in a single season.

Haslam had Utah by 1! Kenneth was right that the lying media is too stupid to rank teams so they'd rather call this season 'crazy' than admit to being so completely ignorant of the 2018-19 incarnation of certain schools. Kentucky is rightfully ranked outside the top 40 at respectable outlets.
