Need to change my “mojo” with some hoops talk - the multiple Sparty Trolls on the football posts are ruining my Christmas spirit.
Not sure if a thread for the afternoon of games is worthwhile, but I'm bored.
Kentucky - Seton Hall was an incredibly entertaining game. Myles Powell of SH lit it up from everywhere in the 2H.

It ranked each active coach based on their actual tournament wins vs. their expected wins based on seeding. I have done several different searches on this site, and multiple searches of the broader internet, and for the life of me I cannot find what I'm looking for.
