Good game, unfortunately its mid-season college basketball meaning it doesn't mean anything since both those teams will be in the tournament.

I believe you I remember reading in Slam Punks last year when he was on the cover that he wanted to stay in school all 4 years. I would definitely take Durant if thats the case.

Wisonsin is just this year's Washington Huskies. They'll be that number 1 seed that barely reaches the sweet 16.

however if they lose a few games and slip out of the national radar and land a 3-4 seed, i will pick them to go to the elite 8 at least. They got the big men inside to score and play D, and the superstar on the outside, although inexperienced, should be a big impact for them.


UNC's winning it all anyway so it really doesn't matter. They win this year, barely lose any1 and come back and win it again next year. Dynasty 05, 07, 08. Hansbrough earns top 5 pick in 08 draft.

Ok, sure if they have a harder schedule of course they will go put earlier. :roll:

Also I don't see the Washington comparison at all. They just barely got the #1 and didn't really deserve it. Wisconsin could be the Number one overall seed.

HA. I can't stop laughing after I read this. INEXPERIENCED?? How? They are one of the most experienced team in college basketball. It usually comes down to matchups in the tournament. We have done some damage in the past, it just goes unnoticed. The badgers have enough depth, they have the talent, they have the experience, they have the coach, the swagger, the scheme. Alando Tucker doesn't have to drive the team for the Badgers to win. We can have a leading scorer every night. opponent, I am not scared whatsoever because I know they can win.

You're joking right? IU is a legit top 30 team.

IU has lost to only very good teams (Butler, Duke, Kentucky and OSU), and has pushed all of them to the wire.

Durant played like an absolute superstar last night. If Oden doesn't come out, so be it. I'm actually excited to see what the Sixers are able to do with this draft. I haven't really been a fan of the team since Barkley left, so I'm excited for them to get a new superstar to lead them. Oden would be great for the city (they haven't had a true center in his prime since Malone). Either way, I'm very high on Durant, regardless of where he goes in the draft.

We will prolly push UConn to the brink Saturday, but I expect us to lose. IU just has very poor talent right now. Stemler never played before more than 30 fans in his collegiant career before this year. Mike White is nonexistent. DJ looks 47. Ratliff looks like he's given up on basketball to pursue acting as Dumbo in the next Disney film, and Roddy Wilmont is definitely on steroids. When you add this all up, we have no basketball talent. So UConn should be weary of the Hoosiers because we play great D and are scrappy. If I recall, that's the same formula George Mason used last year to beat a much better UConn team.

Yes, the talent level on this team is average, but like you've said they are playing good D.

The funny part about IU is that every player has been incosistant this year, but it seems like every time one player struggles another one picks him up.

here's a sign of bias: you say UCONN has 5 KEY BENCH PLAYERS??? What are they the Eastern All-Stars? That's ridiculous.

Nonetheless, they play the game as a team, not 1 on 1. So many of those advantages tha tyou claim are negated.

I think Indiana has a much better team this year, but this is a potential trap game for the Hoosiers. UConn has a ton of talent, and I always give the coaching edge to Jim Calhoun, especially when he's developing young kids. I think he and his assistants do a tremendous job every year with this.

Regardless, Indiana should be able to execute better than UConn and should win. Still, I wouldn't be shocked if UConn hung in there and earned a great character win.

How is an away game at UConn a trap game? I don't follow.

You make it sound like IU is a favorite in this game. I don't think they are.

UCONN has more talent on the team.

IU doesn't have bad talent, but they are overachievers. They play great defense and are also a very good rebounding team despite having only two players that are over 6'9''. And if you think Ben Allen is a key bench player you don't know IU. The game will be close, to think it will be a blowout doesn't make sense. It will a tough win for us because we never seem to win on the road.
