ku looked good tonight against michigan state but duke looks infinitely better than anybody

they’re handling #2 kentucky

It was 1 game, but interesting how Grimes/Dotson played 63 minutes and Moore/Garrett/CJ Lawson only got 35 minutes.  But the 2 Frosh guards looked much better than any of the other 3.

Duke spend almost the entire game at 1.40 PPP or higher.   They had 32 pts with 11:00 in the 1st half. 59 pts by halftime.  85 pts with 13:00 left, and 102 with 7:00 left.  Finished with 118.

TCU rallied, won by 5.  They were playing without Fisher & Noi.

Florida St just routed Fla last night.  Led by 30 in the 2nd half, won by 21. Somewhat of a surprise

Iowa State beat Mizzou 76-59 in Ames. Did it without Wiggington.  Virginia transfer Shayok led them with 20

Texas won in OT over Arkansas 73-71. Roach hit game tying 3 with 1.1 seconds in regulation

After TCU's loss, it looks like the us and KU will be the only ranked Big 12 teams at this point in the season.  When is the last time that has happened?  Texas and Iowa State are receiving votes.  Big 12 looks awful.

Marquette played KU really well for a half. Led 47-38.  Second half they were pretty bad according to the stats.  I only watched some of the 1st half.

Marquette 21 pts in 33 Possession after the break.
31% eFG & 24 TO%. 4-5 FTs

Seton Hall was 5-3 going into the game. Perhaps UK was vastly overrated to begin the year, and hence Duke was and is. Then again, KU is overrated and would have probably dropped 1 or 2 if Vick hadn't woken up one morning and decided to be Steph Curry.

She might be wrong to air that sort of thing in public, but she is absolutely correct. BU is playing his walkon son in the first half of games over kids who really need game experience. This season is another disaster and playing to conceivably win games over getting a kid like Alan Griffin PT seems a flawed strategy. On top of this, Griffin's younger brother is a big time high school prospect. Any chance BU had of getting him to follow his brother is shot now.

It absolutely is. So many problems at UI. But BU is set on playing his style in the Big Ten and it just won't work. Not against legitimate athletes and coaches. It might win you 53 out of 54 games in Podunk Conference but not at the high major level. It's no coincidence his one OK St. team turned things around immediately after he scrapped his defense and went with a more traditional style.

They kinda blew up the premise within the story. They are comparing his number of visits to those of DePaul and Chicago State, I would sincerely hope they are at roughly a billion more Chicago games than Illinois. They also mentioned his surgery recovery and the fact that he needs to spend more time with his shitty team. The much more interesting story is one within the one linked about why Illinois didn't offer the chubby baller at flood aggie.

Brad's turn around has been impressive. He's pushing the right buttons right now, but he'll have to win the Big 10 tournament to make any postseason. Frank is probably in the same boat, I have no idea how he went to Stillwater and lost. Perhaps similar to us in College Station I guess.

I think it would be better for us to win outright if Kansas beats Tech. If Tech wins I become bullish on them winning out. I don't love KU going on their two game road streak unscathed.

@ISU could be nasty to end the year for Tech.  If Iowa State has a chance to impact the conference race in that one, they will be going crazy there.

The streak is statistically amazing, but I think it’s fair to say that KU wouldn’t have been able to accomplish it in any of the other major conferences. On the flip side, maybe only Duke would have been able to accomplish it here in the Big 12 if they switched with KU. So it’s a big deal, but needs a little perspective. You would think a team that won a major conference championship 14 years straight would have far more success in the NCAAs, but that’s not what’s happened. Instead, they have been consistently good enough to stay slightly ahead of the bumper cars that is the rest of this conference.

And looking at the remainder of K-State’s and Tech’s schedules, I still think it’s about even money for KU to snag a share of a 15th.

If KU had switched places with Kentucky 14 years ago, I bet KU could have had that streak in the SEC.  The SEC has not been as good as the Big 12 over that stretch.  Kentucky, and Calipari, are more one-and-done than KU.  Self is a better program builder than Calipari.  Calipari is a shepherd of top talent, until that talent is ready to move to the next level. Self attempts to bend them to his will, and the better of the program.

Ppl say the big 12 sucks because of this streak and I have always called bullshit on this. Last year we had 4 teams in the sweet 16 and 3 in the elite 8. Not trying to be Iowa State here, but it’s very apparent that over the years KU gets most 50/50 calls in this conference. They’re the only blue blood in the big 12, so it helped along the way.

We are the only P5 league that doesn’t have multiple teams with a national championship so I think an element of truth exists that relative to the other conferences we do suck.  When’s the last time a non KU team was a legitimate threat to win it all?  I suppose top to bottom we are very competitive but our elite is not on par with other conferences elite.

That’s true, they got beat by 40 so it’s hard for me to count them as a threat to win a title but maybe that’s not fair.  I suppose we have had a handful of 2 seeds that were probably good enough to win it all. I think the 2003 tournament with Texas led by TJ Ford was the last time someone else got a 1 seed.
Title: Re: the other games thread
Post by: K-S-U-Wildcats! on February 24, 2019, 01:39:15 PM
So to be clear, I actually think it’s the overall parity and quality of the B12 that has contributed to the streak. The B12 consistently produces at least 4 or 5 good-not-great teams every single year, and KU is consistently just a bit better and more consistent than the others. They stay above the fray while the other teams hand each other losses. So the I think the streak is a bit of a fluke, but not in a way that should detract from KU’s accomplishment.

This year, KU simply isn’t better than Tech, or K-State while playing on the road. If the streak is going to end, this is the year.

I think KU has one one of the highest failure rates of reaching the FF as a one seed in the past several decades. Of course, they garner a lot of 1 seeds coming out of the B12 - which is itself a great accomplishment.

That could be.   Getting a 1 seed is really hard and KU has got one 8 times under self which is absurd. 
Title: Re: the other games thread
Post by: K-S-U-Wildcats! on February 24, 2019, 02:50:17 PM
So I was kinda right - kinda wrong. I looked back at the NCAA tourney performance of 4 teams: Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, and North Carolina, over the past 14 years (the streak). I recorded each team’s seed, the round they made it to, and gave them a score based upon whether they played below, to, or above seed. So if you’re a 1 seed and reach the FF, you played to seed and get a 0. If you’re a 1 seed and win the championship that’s 2 games above seed so you get a 2. If you’re a 2 seed and you lose in the round of 64, that’s 3 games below seed for a -3.

Here’s the results:

Kentucky has the lowest average seed of 4.5833, but also averaged an impressive .5833 against the seed.

North Carolina has an average seed of 2.4615, and averaged .1538 against the seed.

Kansas has the highest average seed of 1.7143, but averaged -0.7857 against the seed.

Duke has an average seed of 2.1429, but averaged -0.9286 against the seed.

So Duke actually underperforms a bit more than KU in the tourney despite starting with about the same seed. Kentucky generally starts with a much worse seed but far outperforms it, whereas North Carolina has the most consistent record in terms of high average seed while slightly outperforming it.

MIR was talking about last year’s E8 team, and Tech did not snap KU’s title streak by tying the Cats.

Still very excited for the championship game. I almost never end up watching these things.

If it makes you feel better, I had them in the final four this year. I thought Duke would beat them again.
