We Need a 2014-2015 Basketball Thread
« on: November 18, 2014, 02:17:54 PM »
Yes - We need a sticky thread for 2014/2015 College and Professional Basketball!!

As far as I'm concerned, Football season is OVER (Auburn & UNC are not looking good).

But, last weekend was pretty good.  UNC won and Dook lost.  If only AU had beat Georgia.

Blasphemy!!!

The Red Devils are playing for a Div IV Regional championship on Saturday night and the Buckeyes are still in for the Big 10 Championship game and a great bowl match up. 

Looks like Sparty is struggling tonight against Dook.  Hopefully they can turn it around in the second half.

Went to the Women's Auburn vs. Grambling game on Tuesday. 

Best haul ever for gifts.  I got a shirt (thrown to the stands - can exchange for anything comparable in the store) and two $10 gift certificates to Academy Sports (wife and I and she did not want it).

Very small crowd (less than 150 excepting the band).  I, my buddy, and my wife are engaged in the game and shout out occasionally.

Best I had ever done before in a single game was a shirt plus a parachuting Chick-fil-a cow with free food coupons.

I heard a great quote from Calipari on the radio today: "We don't have subs; we have reinforcements"

I don't like the guy, but he can recruit like crazy.  The quote made me laugh.

Early in the season, but Kentucky is playing at a different level than everyone else.  They are tall, talented, and amazingly deep.  They are just pounding opponents.

Did anyone hear Pitino the other day?  After crushing a vastly inferior opponent he said, and I'm paraphrasing, but, it went something like, "We did everything we could.  We even played four white guys and an Egpytian."

State-Carolina on right now...  Refs are already acting like twits - at least 2 swats to State players' faces not called, but State is also throwing up some dumb shots.

UNC got a tough win at NC State last night.  I'm working so many hours right now that I could not watch the game.
