Re: Bracketbuster Games

Not that it matters anymore for the future because this series is being discontinued but sounds like ESPN didn't use the RPI this year to select the games. If you look at the matchups, they used the "BPI"...something ESPN created taking into account win margin, key players missing, etc. Here are the BPI rankings - http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bpi

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Eh. Ok I guess, Canisius is 108 in BPI and Vermont is way back at 146.

I'll take it.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

I don't margin of win or key players missing as a factor in things. It doesnt matter how much you win by. Some teams run styles of play that are meant for blowing teams out and some teams run styles for grinding out games. Both can make a team win the same amount of games. Just because you blow teams out and try to extend leads instead of playing a slower steady style of basketball doesn't make you better.

I don't like injuries because certain players are more injury prone than others. IF you have a team that is full of injury prone players it bs to say if we were fully healthy. That team would never be fully healthy. You are as good as the players you can put out and KEEP on the floor. A team should be rewarded for having players who stay healthy or don't get suspended.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

UVM doesn't try to blow teams out of course there BPI isnt going to be that good. When UVM has a good lead they will try to run the clock and grind out the win. Just because UVM doesnt full court press and fast break with a 15 point lead doesn't mean their win should count any less.

Re: Bracketbuster Games

Not terribly exciting opponent- but fair match up given both teams and cool it will be on ESPN3.

On the court Canisius will be a tough opponent. Billy Baron is tough and he will be gone next year.

The Creighton/St. Mary's match-up will be good.

ALBANY ó The University at Albany will play Fairfield of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in an ESPN BracketBusters game at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Conn.

Fairfield, which played Siena Monday night at Times Union Center, was 10-13 overall (5-6 in the league) going into that game.

The Danes are 17-7 overall and 6-4 in the America East Conference. This is the first time the two teams have ever met. The BracketBusters game between Fairfield and UAlbany is not one of the 13 that will be televised over the ESPN networks.

The time and date for the game have yet to be determined. It canít be played on Saturday night, Feb. 23, because the American Hockey League Bridgeport Sound Tigers have a game at Webster Bank Arena at 7. The Sound Tigers also have a home game on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 3 p.m., so it looks as though the basketball game would have to be played either Friday night or Saturday afternoon.

The game on both teamís schedules calls for it to be played on Saturday, Feb. 23 in Bridgeport.

If I had to guess, I'd say that will be announced within the next day or so...unless one of the UA fans have the inside scoop. Using the past as a guide, usually non-TV games get sorted out the day after the TV announcements.

EDIT: Forget I said anything. Looking at the previous post, guess it's Fairfield.
