    No big deal but you really don't know the Big 5?

    Not sure I knew what the Big 5 was before I moved to this area. Maybe...

    Cliff you're a Syracuse fan and they played Nova twice a year forever. You really don't think you knew what the Big 5 was prior to moving here? They mention it on every telecast...

    Well I do now and it makes sense but no, down here you don't hear much about the Big 5.
    I'm through with screaming

    Yeah, I assume you're probably right. Probably just didn't give it too much thought. Don't think I notice how much they talk about it but yeah..

    thought the Nova game was on later and totally missed it. They were bound to lose soon anyway.

    Cool commentary by Scott Van Pelt on ESPN regarding the Palestra. Penn State is playing Michigan State there tomorrow in a home game.

    i am shocked that Nova won that game. I only caught part of it at a bar and they looked bad.

    After that first half, so am I. That was a great test for the tourney.

    going back to the Marquette game Jenkins at one point missed 15 straight shots. that's pretty amazing for a guy with such a good stroke. Virginia's offense just isn't good enough in crunch time, Virginia had to knock Nova out in the first half when they only shot 18%. You have to be up more than 9 points at half when your opponent shoots 18%.

    LaSalle's coach is so bad. 0-4 in the big 5 is disgraceful when you have more talent than everyone but Nova.
    Alright, alright, alright!

    Losing to my Hawks is bad enough but they lost to Penn. that can't happen with the talent on that team. LaSalle is a very difficult job though. I get why they go the transfer route but can be hard to have chemistry when you are bringing in so many guys like that.

    It's going to be interesting at Temple to. Dunph isn't getting it done there. they aren't very good this year. I don't think they make any moves this year but if he has another bad year next year who knows. gotta suck for the fans though playing teams like Tulsa and South Florida. Even Uconn stinks this year.

    they aren't losing again in the regular season. the 2 other best teams in the Big East lost their best players to knee injuries. Nova's next loss is to the 8-9 seed in the NCAAs

    so many great memories of being in the Palestra. there is a spirit to the place. when you walk in, it just feels like basketball. i've been in a lot of arenas and it's still one that gives me a little chill each time i walk in. Sucks that my Hawks pretty much only play 1 game a year there now. Wish they would take their Big 5 games back there.

    Boy this season has taken a turn for the worse. The hawk may never die but the Explorer is on it's last leg.

    I just hope for their sake the guy who gave the money for the Pavillion upgrade doesn't turn out to be another gay murderer.

    YOUR national champions will be playing in front of the largest crowd ever up in Newark today. Seton Hall is opening up the upper bowl for only the second time. Probably will be full of Nova fans.

    Yeah, imagine if they had Phil Boothe & 5-Star/McDonalds All American BIG man Omari Spellman?

    Gotta think that Phil Boothe will be Red-shirted?

    How long will Reynolds be out for?
  • eeriepadaveeeriepadave West Chester, PAPosts: 25,461
    As long as Nova doesn't play Butler in the tourny they should do pretty well (least final 4). I guess with Gonzaga's loss they move back to #1?
  • pjhawkspjhawks Posts: 7,751
    Love seeing the article where all the Nova people including Jay said how shitty the Pavilion is now that they are going to refurbish it. nova people defended that dump for years. only arena i ever sat in and had a seat where i could only see about 5 rows of the student section. whoever signed off on that roof configuration should never be allowed to design anything ever again.

    now less than two weeks to selection Sunday. can't recall a season where there is no real favorite to win it all going into the tournament. i think there are about 20 teams that could win it this year.
