    College Basketball 2014-15

    I know we have a ton of individual team threads out there, but I figured this would give us a place for more general talk. I haven't gotten to watch a ton of games yet, but I will.

    So, who have you seen that looks good, bad or just ugly?

    Oh yes, go Dores, as well.

    I really liked Gonzaga the other night against SMU. Gary Bell, Jr. and Kevin Pangos are a great backcourt, and they added a graduate transfer from USC that averaged 18ppg there last year. They also have a 7-1 Polish center who is pretty solid. Wiltjer transferred in from Kentucky and rounds out the starting five. Not a great player, but he can shoot and is a pretty solid fifth option. They seem to have quite a bit of depth, but no one on the bench REALLY stood out other than Arvydas Sabonis's kid. He is just a freshman and is going to be a stud. Not sure how long Gonzaga will get to keep him. The Zags visit Tucson December 6th, and outside of Xavier games that is probably the regular season college basketball I am most looking forward to.

    Creighton and Oklahoma are in the middle of a good old good one on Fox Sports 1 right now. Creighton is on a 21-2 run to erase a 17 point second half deficit with about 12 to play.

    Having Raff do Xavier/LBSU was amazing. That says everything about how different the world is for Xavier these days compared to twenty years ago when I was a freshman.

    A scary thing about Gonzaga? The Bulldogs are going to add another impactful piece when Eric McClellan is eligible in December. A transfer from Vanderbilt, McClellan averaged 14.3 points during 12 games for the Commodores last season and is fast in the open floor. With the addition of McClellan, Mark Few's team will have 10 separate players capable of scoring in double figures on a regular basis.

    Villanova is waxing VCU down the stretch. I expected that one to go down to the wire.

    Indiana lost to Eastern Washington.

    Tom Crean was seen requesting quotes on movers after the game.

    Ohio State has had some close calls like this in the cupcake portion of their schedule, but always managed to survive without the embarrassing loss.

    I hear EWU is moving up from their previous No. 151 ranking. Just can't trust those preseason polls anyhow. Clearly, they must be at least deserving to be in the top 150.

    Such hyperbole.

    Villanova’s win is evidence of why VCU may have peaked as a basketball program

    Everyone knows that if you lose a college basketball game against a highly ranked foe on November 24th that not only is your season over, but your program is wrecked. Smart should probably start looking for greener pastures.
