    NCAA Men's Basketball thread

    Not seeing a thread on this topic I thought I would get one going.

    Got to watch on ESPN my alma mater almost beat #1 UNC last night. Unfortunately Davidson fell short in the last few minutes after failing to put UNC away when it had a chances to do so in the 2nd half. Stephan Curry, Dell's son, reminded me of a young Ray Allen. (Not to make this a Boston related thread)

    When did you go to Davidson? I'm a lifelong Marshall fan and graduated from MU in 2001. We used to have some fun games with you all when we were in the Southern Conference.

    I'm also a Xavier alum and was crushed by their loss to Miami the other night. All I can say is that Charlie Coles is one of the best coaches I have had the privilege of watching over the years, He always gets a whole lot out of a minimal amount of talent.

    If it makes you feel better, we didn't have him for long.

    I am a UNC fan and let me tell you - you guys have nothing to hang your head about with regard to that loss. I've heard people on Duke boards and on Kentucky boards gloating about how UNC is overrated because they struggled to win the opener. Yes, Kentucky fans talking smack after they themselves lost to Gardner Webb on their home court. Anyway, UNC didn't play great, but I think alot has to do with how good a team Davidson is. I think it was a great opening game for UNC. A character builder.

    Now Davidson needs to beat Duke in early December - I will be a HUGE Daividson fan for that game!

    Watched the game and Davidson is a good basketball team.

    I honestly thought Davidson was going to win going into that game. They have a very good team. My aunt and cousins live in Davidson about 5 minutes away from the school so I'm pretty familiar with it. They definitely gave OSU a fight in the NCAA tournament when we played them.

    Got to see the Buckeyes play for the first time. I think they are going to make some noise yet again. They simply dominated Syracuse in MSG. Very impressive game. Jamar Butler is good. Kosta Kofous is a very athletic 7 footer and Othello Hunter is a man inside. Of course, with the youth, you may not even recognize them if you watch them play A&M Friday.

    Eric Gordon looks awfully good so far this year. I'm looking forward to when the Hoosiers play someone decent.

    i'm a fan of Marshall and Xavier, and I can honestly say that this year marshall's going to have a great season (by our standards) and donnie jones certainly will do a much better job than jirsa did. As for Xavier, yes that miami loss was very crushing, but as long as we can bounce back we'll be fine, we just can't blow anymore games like that.

    You will like Donnie Jones. May take a little time, but there will be a measurable improvment.
