We always look a little small - to me anyway, but today we're playing the 2nd tallest college basketball team.

Halftime report

My 3 point shooting team is 0 for 11 shooting 3s.
Congrats, 80-68. 13-0!

I hadn't planned on posting more than a "meanwhile" (that no one understood) until our 1st loss. We'll see if I jinxed them.

1st half had me worried. We went 9 minutes without a basket and no 3 pointers the entire half.

Vandy next

8-6. 1/4 vs. Georgia Tech at UNC L 83 - 96

Next year.

Take heart, there is one team in the ACC that's worse. You guessed it, Clemson. :---P

Big showdown between them at UNC on 1/11. Don't miss it.

1/11 @Carolina vs. Clemson, L 76 - 79. Could there be a greater humiliation? Last in the ACC. Are you close to not following them anymore this year? Miami's pretty sucky, too.

It looks like they could make it into March without a loss.

San Diego State (17-0)! #7, but no ranked teams on the sched.

Auburn (15-0)! #4, first, second and only ranked opponent is #10 Kentucky, 2/1 @Auburn, 2/29 (leap year!) @Kentucky.

I haven't kept up with rankings but read something about the sec being strong this year. Florida and Alabama may be tough.

I don't know what's "strong" by SEC standards :P , but neither Florida nor Alabama got any votes like Harvard, Harvard! did.

As I said, I don't follow close

I do see Kentucky, Arkansas and LSU at your link

Maybe he author meant stronger than typical, both Alabama and Florida have had some unusual losses. I suspect that they are better than their lack of ranking indicates

UNC & #3Duke take losses to Clemson in back to back games.

“Our kids have to understand how hard it is to win,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski told the media after the game. “When you are in our conference, all these teams are hungry. Sometimes when you win a lot, you are not as much as the other team. I thought that’s how the game started.”

Oh, c'mon. There's only one real "Final Four." The others would be lower case "final four."
