    Zags v. Aztecs tonight. Zags started slow, but have come on. Added some nice players after Sabonis and Wiltjer left, including freshman Zach Collins and Killian Tillie and grad-transfer Jordan Mathews. They are going to be tough, as always.

    Watched the game but couldn't remember Tillie's name. They always just reload. So frustrating. Not sure how we'll match up against Karnowski, Collins, and Tillie.

    Kaufusis tend to give Gonzaga bigs trouble, so that should help. Gonzaga is tough.

    Early returns on some of the more highly touted freshmen/NBA prospects.

    Lauri Markannen of Arizona looks like he has a chance to be special. Strong, athletic big who can really shoot the 3 and has a nice post game. Kobi Simmons had his moments and looks like he could be pretty special.

    Miles Bridges was a little out of control, but was productive and is an impressive talent. Reminded me a bit of Carmelo Anthony early at Syracuse.

    Frank Jackson has led or been second on the team in scoring in every Duke game/exhibition. In Duke's first real game, he dropped 18 on 7-10 shooting. Giles and Tatum still not playing due to injury.

    D'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk and Bam Adebayo all looked pretty good in UK's last game. Adebayo looks like a young Dwight Howard.

    SDSU is supposed to be the best from the MWC and they're not that good. We would win that league.

    Commentators said they were missing a key guy and that others were slowed by injury.

    Even in their game against San Diego, who is picked for dead last in the WCC this year.

    No. 4 Oregon loses the battle of the highlighters to Baylor, 66-49.

    Maybe there could be a few more closeups of Frank Jackson saying "f____" on his "mission."

    After those big time threes he drained, his f bomb will get about as much attention and be remembered about the same as all those times i dropped it on my mission.

    Washington's Markelle Fultz, who may have already been the favorite for #1 overall, put up 35 on 10-14 FGs last night. 3-5 from three with 6 assists. It was against CS Fullerton in a high scoring game, so, there's that, but the performance certainly doesn't hurt his already sky high stock.

    He'll be one to keep an eye on.

    The Zags are dismantling Zona early on. They also can shoot their threes. BYU has a long way to compete with the Zags this year.

    Lol. BYU would need to shoot 60% from 3 to have any shot. This team has reloaded in a big way.

    I'm here at Staples! Zags fan behind me explaining how his friend who majored in broadcasting told him a huge industry secret that there is a long timeout after 16, 12, 8 and 4 minutes. Who knew?

    At this stage of the game, I would agree. I believe BYU can compete better with St. Mary's than Gonzaga, but one can always hope.

    When did you get your tickets? I looked into going, but I was late doing it and didn't find any decent seats available.

    About a month ago.

    This Gonzaga team is really good. Sheesh.

    Definitely they are a better team than last season and I think they are headed to a top 2 seed and a deep run in the tourney.

    These top 10 teams have an embarrassing wealth of talent with a ton of future NBA players. It might just be long term memory loss but I really can't recall seeing this many teams with 7-8 players with unbelievable talent. March should be fun and I hope we're there to enjoy it.

    UCLA, Duke and UK, in particular, are loaded. But you're right, there is just so much talent in college basketball.

    It's fitting that Grayson Allen has a name so similar to that unhinged Florida Congressman Alan Grayson.

    Very punchable guy. He's got serious issues.

    That was awesome. Love seeing the Lobos fans suffer a gutpunch like that.

    That was some incredible shooing by the Wolfpack and an incredible chokejob from the line by the lobos.

    not as impressive as the Tracy McGrady 13 in 35 comeback (down 8 with 35 seconds to play and Spurs made their FTs), but pretty good nonetheless.

    Sweet chick brawl between Utah State and UNLV this weekend:

    http://www.cbssports.com/college-bas...sketball-game/

    Check out the UNLV bench player hopping down the baseline on one foot with a cast/boot on the other. Too funny.

    I gotta side with the Aggies on this one. Looks like the UNLV player intentionally bumped hard into the Aggiette to spark the brawl.
