B10 Basketball Open Thread

Neb @ Purdue

Sparty @ Minn



Looks like an easy home win for Purdue a few days before they come to Crisler. OTOH, Hummel looks like he's in the zone. OTOOH, it's Neb.


Sparty has about a 20-25% chance to lose at the Barn, I assume. GO GOPHERS

I think the Gohphers give Sparty a game. No road game is easy.

The committee's stance that conference record doesn't matter will be put to the test this year. I think any B10 bubble team should be ahead of the third team out of the Pac-12.

I haven't seen them play at all this year (The only game of ours I missed was the game we played them).  I feel like they should be better based on the classes Tubby has been bringing in combined with his coaching (at least I thought he was a good coach).  Whats going on there?  I know they have some off the court problems last year.  Have those carried over?

yes it was their biggest game ever in the history of their program. So yes it was a possible let down game did you even watch it? With all the things you wrote it still took 2 huge threes in the last minute and 15 threes total to just pull away in overtime. The game was very winnable by them. So I think it was the making of a let down game but we prevailed which was great.

Difficult place to play.  I think The Gophers have a legit shot at the upset.  Problem is, Sparty knows where they stand and how important the game is... so they're bound to show up ready to play

Okay, that technical foul was bullshit. He was going full speed and let go as soon as his momentum stopped. If he dunks and lets go immediately, he could gotten rocked by the basket support.
