Speaking of St. John’s, they will play the last college game of 2019 hosting #11 Butler tomorrow night. Will be interesting to see if they can continue the good recent play against an excellent team.

Also, Yale at unranked UNC tonight. UNC favored by 6.5. Probably as good a chance as you’ll see for an Ivy to go win in that building.

Wow. I guess I hadn’t paid enough attention to the other league teams to know how bad Hartford was. Seems like not that long ago it was a program that was getting good seeds in the NCAA.

Last season, Hartford women were 23-11. How do you go from that to 0-15?
Coaching change (left for ECU). Top- and third-leading scorer graduate. Second leading scorer transfer to join old head coach at ECU. I believe she had a few recruits follow her too. A sophomore starter transferred to High Point. The other starter also graduated and so did two key role players.

Morgan Valley (and fellow Rice standout Haliee Barron who is an assistant there) has her work cut out for her.

How many times does Kansas have to be involved in some sort of train wreck? At some point shouldn‘t Bill Self be the adult in the room? Yeah, Kansas State should have laid off at the end, that was stupid. But then the WWE chair move by Kansas. Zero discipline.

That KU KSU brawl at the end of their game tonight was ugly. Gotta assume some pretty long suspensions are going to be coming from that one.

That Silvio de Sousa juice hasn't really been worth the squeeze for poor Bill Self.

As mid-major rivalries go, Murray State vs. Belmont is always a fun game. Murray perfect in the OVC so far even after losing Morant. They have developed a great program there.

Anybody still second guessing Steve Pikiell's move to Rutgers? I mean, making $1.6 million/year and now has them ranked in the Top 25 and barring a major catastrophe, headed to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1991. If that happens, I wonder how much of a raise and extension he gets at the end of the year. Not to mention his marketability after bringing that program back from the dead.
