    Match ups can be funny things. That one loss at home for Minny was by 14 points to the Terps. Looks like Maryland is going to beat them again.

    Jamal Mashburn, Jr. plays for the Gophers. Fuck, I'm old.

    OSU is 17-4 and ranked 4th in the country. Marquette is 9-12 and going nowhere.

    BC fired Jim Christian today. The Eagles haven't made the NCAA tourney since Evan Ravenel was on the roster. A bit odd that they didn't wait for the last month of the season to be completed before firing him, but who cares.

    Jalen Johnson opts out of the remainder of the season at Duke. Probably will help Duke as a team, TBH. Dude is toxic, a liability on D, and I wouldn't draft him at any point if I were an NBA team.

    Jalen Johnson and Terrence Clarke were two of the most highly regarded hoops prospects in the current freshman class. They chose to play for blue bloods Duke and Kentucky. After struggling individually and as part of a team, they opted to sit out part of the season. Instead of a shining moment in March, they are gonna be out of sight, out of mind.

    Admittedly, I hadn’t heard of “Wins above Bubble” but I’m a sucker for nerding out on numbers. Interesting metric.

    And the day I learn about WAB, the WCC partner’s with Ken Pomeroy to seed their conference tournaments. Appears it may involve some “wins above bubble” component since it’s not using his adjusted offense and defensive efficiency metrics.

    They call it an “adjusted conference winning percentage.”

    Innovative way to handle the disruptions/cancellations this season. Zags are still winning the men’s side no matter what. :lol:

    During an appearance on the Greater Columbus Sports Commission’s Virtual Sports Report on Thursday morning, NCAA senior vice president of basketball Dan Gavitt said that while no final decision on fan attendance has been made yet, an announcement on members of the general public being able to attend tournament games this year could be coming soon.

    “We’re poised to make an announcement here in the next several days about fan attendance, and we’re hopeful and optimistic that we may have limited attendance for general fans, but up to and no more than 25%,” Gavitt said. “And that would be a maximum, if we get there, based on the size of the six different venues we’re using in Indianapolis. So in many cases, we won’t even come close to 25% by keeping that six feet of physical distancing needed in each of the venues. But maybe by the time we get to Lucas Oil Stadium, a much larger venue, we may have slightly closer to 20-25% capacity.”
    “Our student-athletes have really embraced the protocols that our medical subcommittee from the Big Ten put in place,” Smith said. “Dan and I were chatting before this session, and the one thing that’s true for our athletes is the safest place for them is in our cocoon, in the bubble that we’ve created that they’ve been a part of, and our positivity rate is low. Our focus is always to make sure their health and safety is first and foremost. And they’ve embraced what we’ve asked them to do. So really fortunate to have coaches and strength coaches and trainers who have helped our student-athletes follow the protocols that we’ve put in place.”
