Aztecs now 25-0 and play the 12-1 (home) blue-field people next.
Not to be a jinx, but if SDSU wins out can they justify giving it a #1 seed? Can they justify NOT giving it a #1 seed?
And I'm pretty sure Chapel Hill is way past embarrassing this year. By now they're eating dumpster food, shitting on the sidewalk, and getting drunk on hair spray.
:lol:

Being ranked below ETSU and UNC Greensboro just rubs it in.

#5 Louisville 62, @Clemson 77. Chaos. It sucks to see Clemson win and I don't hate Louisville, but that's great for the teams we really care about. Duke leads the ACC!

15:44 2nd Half: #11 Auburn 38, @Missouri 47. Ut-oh.

Edits:

#9 Maryland 67, @ Michigan St 60. :thumbup: Maryland leads the Big Ten!
#11 Auburn 73, @Missouri 85. Ouch. Kentucky leads the SEC.
6:32 1st Half: #10 Seton Hall 9, @Providence 34. :crazy:

Well that sucked, but was expected. This year's team doesn't have the depth. Last year we lost our top player and went on to win, this year we lose our top player and lose big to a team that was 3-9 in the sec. No one there to step up.

If they keep the 'Zags #1 in the West, I've read guesses that Aztecs will go to the East, and projected to probably play Duke. We'll see.

Ah, you were talking about the Regionals before. I wondered.

I'm sorry for you. :P

1 & 2 seeding seems possible. If so, SDSU could win 3 games before facing Duke, if Duke is still alive at that point.

AP Rankings

1 Baylor Bears 23-1 Ugh.
2 Gonzaga Bulldogs 26-1 Cool. Go Sista O!
3 Kansas Jayhawks 22-3 Ugh.
4 San Diego State Aztecs 26-0 Still :thumbup: . Clinched Mountain West by a mile.
5 Dayton Flyers 23-2 Up from #6 :confusion-scratchheadblue: .
6 Duke Blue Devils 22-3 Up from #7 :thumbup: . Leading the ACC.
7 Maryland Terrapins 21-4 Up from #9 :thumbup: :clap: . Leading the Big Ten.
8 Florida State Seminoles 21-4 Ugh.
9 Penn State Nittany Lions 20-5 Ugh.
10 Kentucky Wildcats 20-5
11 Louisville Cardinals 21-5 Big drop from #5 after the loss to sucky Clemson :thumbup: :angry-banghead: .
12 Villanova Wildcats 19-6
13 Auburn Tigers 22-3 Drop from #11 after the loss to MO. Coulda been worse. Tied for SEC 2nd with LSU, 1 game behind Kentucky which it plays again @Kentucky on 2/29. Auburn has the head-to-head tiebreaker over LSU, and would have the 2-0 tiebreaker over Kentucky if it wins.
14 Oregon Ducks 20-6 Up from #17 after beating Colorado :thumbup: . Barely below Colorado in the Pac-12, I like both.
15 Creighton Bluejays 20-6 Big jump from #23 after beating former #10 Seton Hall.
16 Seton Hall Pirates 18-7
17 West Virginia Mountaineers 18-7
18 Colorado Buffaloes 20-6 Drop from #16. Coulda been worse.

(39) East Tennessee State Buccaneers 23-4 Barely leading the SoCon. I'm rooting for an NCAA bid even of you don't care, neoplacebo.

Not ranked still: Clemson (7-8, 13-12), Miami FL (5-10, 13-12), UNC (3-11 :o , 10-15.

All 4 of our losses have been to teams with only 2 wins.
That has to be some kind of record. It's one of the reasons that I don't have a lot of faith in this team. We are too dependent on two players.

Oh no:

Otoh:
USC 66, @#18 Colorado 70

They will flip in the rankings again. 10-4 Colorado now has the 1/2 game Pac-12 lead over the AZ teams, 1 game over Oregon.

2 SEC wins at the time?

Sat., February 22

Tennessee (15-11) @#13 Auburn (22-4), 12:00 PM ET CBS
Careful, "Tennessee do grow them some kinda crazies". :wave:

#3 Kansas, @#1 Baylor, 12:00 PM ET ESPN
Huge. I don't like either, but I hate Baylor more. Go Jayhawks.

UCLA (16-11) @#18 Colorado (21-6), 4:00 PM ET CBS
I remember when UCLA was dominant every year. It's been awhile. Go Buffaloes, because they're the ranked team.

#8 Florida St (22-4) @NCSU (17-9), 4:00 PM ET ACCN ( :roll: grrr)
Duke and FSU in the same week? Go Wolfpack!

UNLV (14-14) @#4 SDSU (26-0), 7:30 PM ET CBSS ( :roll: grrr)
Easy peasy.

Virginia Tech (15-11) @#6 Duke (22-4), 8:00 PM ET ESPN2
Partial redemption?

#14 Oregon @#24 Arizona, 9:00 PM ET ESPN
Go Ducks!

#2 Gonzaga @#23 BYU, 10:00 PM ET ESPN2
Go Bulldogs and Sister O.

Pretty good regular season day of hoops.

Yes, 2 total wins at the time of their play against Auburn. The bammer and Florida games were early in the season.

Not trying to argue, I'm just confused by your point. Georgia had 12 "total wins" when it beat Auburn.
