    UNC frosh Cole Anthony lights up Notre Dame with 34 points, an ACC freshman debut record. That's as many points as the entire Syracuse team managed against UVA yesterday. He also had 11 rebounds and five assists.

    UVA (at Syracuse) was the first defending national champion since one of the late 1960s UCLA teams to open their following season with an away game.

    Good to see we get a thread about the really important college sport.

    Also note, DrJay, that Duke started out by defeating Kansas on Tuesday nite, despite all the experts picking Kansas.

    Obviously Duke will win all of their games this season, going undefeated, and winning the NCAA title. Why are the other teams even bothering to compete against them????

    Along as Kansas (and a few others) get put on no post season probation for a few years I will be happy. Of course this article suggests that no high level program is likely to be completely innocent in this on going amateur charade that is big time college basketball and football.

    pertinent quote.

    One person with extensive knowledge of the federal probe was asked recently how many top 40 prospects he believes arrive on campus without a handler, a family member, a summer coach, or the player himself having already accepted money from an unauthorized source.

    "None of them," the person said.

    Ha! Most over-rated sport EVER!

    The regular season drones on forever, and it's only purpose is to seed a bloated tournament.

    The Final Four is interesting; the rest is a meaningless mass of loud horns and too many time-outs!

    No doubt, kind of like a year ago when after they dismantled Kentucky in their opening game and I said "they should just give the trophy to Duke right now."

    They would have won if RJ Barrett had just let Zion have the ball more in the last minutes of close games - ball hog.

    Paraphrasing Jerry Tarkanian - "When Kansas commits an NCAA violation, they put Cleveland State on probation for a few years."
