    Aside from individual game threads, this one contains it's share of gloom and doom. Yeah, we blew all of our chances at any real resume builders but 3 teams from our buy games are good enough to win their conference tourneys and get auto bids. In fact, all 3 have strong conference POY candidates. However, even if all 3 should get in, IDK if it moves the needle for us come selection Sunday. Hey maybe SDSU can get in that way, but one of those guys that kill us is involved in some sort of sextape scandle. Gotta get this road W on Tuesday and hope the Tigers make the tourney. Otherwise if we end up on the Bubble, our 5 OOC loses will likely burst it. Must go 9-4 OOC and surprise everyone in 2019!! Go X

    Missouri is not making the Tournament. At least not the NCAA Tournament.

    I think their chance and Xavier's chance is about the same. It could happen, but it's not likely. In my opinion, Missouri has a lot more margin for error due to playing in the SEC which is absolutely loaded this year. Both teams are on the rise though and the future looks bright.

    3 of our losses I accept. Wisky (we could have tied at end except for bogus offensive foul), Auburn (took to OT) & UC (away). Missouri & San Diego both seem unacceptable, but let's see how their seasons play out. We are about to finish 8-5 OOC with a Detroit win. Unsuccessful OOC. Let's look at Vanillanova. Also not successful OOC. Their 27 pt beatdown at home vs Michigan was a bigger margin than any of our losses. Losing at home to Furman & to Penn in Philly also bad losses. Their loss to Kansas seems very acceptable. Overall, the BE is down. So 8-5 OOC & 9-9 or better in BE seems possible. We need to try new starters in the lineup & new combos of players during games. We were #1 in country at 2 pt FG% before Missouri game. So shoot more 2's, less 3's. Try Hankins & Jones together (this has become a pet peeve of mine). Get Welage to play better D - he doesn't like to foul. Fouling can be part of better D. The 3 Grad Transfers don't seem to be in sync with our Core 4. Most of what needs to be corrected is attitude & team chemistry. Coach Steele may be struggling with chemistry between assistants & him. I believe we have middle of the road talent in the BE. The team can hopefully bond as the season progresses.

    Furman may not be a bad loss as it turns out for Nova. And at least Nova has the holiday tournament championship to hang their hat on.

    Speaking of OOC, tonight's Buffalo/Marquette game should be awfully interesting. Strange as it seems, Marquette may be catching Buffalo in letdown mode. Given the geography, you've got to think Syracuse is the game this week that those Buffalo players had circled on the schedule when it came out. Now three days later they are in Milwaukee facing the Warriors. That's a tough turnaround that they may well not be ready for.
