    Down went St Joes, yet again. 
    maybe next year we will actually get to play you with a healthy roster. our best player and top rebounder missed the game.  Not saying Hawks would have won with Brown and Oliva mostly because our coach is a fucking moron but chances would have been much greater.  I'd luv to ask Phil the thought process on letting a team with zero inside presence take 43 3s in the game.  just fucking dumb coaching.

    I think Penn has a great chance to upset nova Tuesday.  And if Penn does they could be setting themselves up to at least get into the conversation for an at-large. they beat an ACC team last week. that would be two really big wins. 

    and you would think a player whose parents got paid could get on the court more than a few minutes against a mid major missing 2 of their top 5 players.  think jay is going to regret taking Quinerly.

    Was listening to some Ringer podcast recently and the dude that works for the Ringer who was on the Oden Ohio State team said the going rate for a top recruit is $50k and a car.  Would make sense why Nova was number two for the Arizona kids if they were willing to kick it up a notch.

    Jay gonna get got.

    Aww, that's cute.

    Is this Mark Titus? His book was pretty entertaining. Juggler recommends.

    Yes, I believe that is it. I always forget his name.  He also said that Oden claims to this day he didn't get anything and that he got made fun of relentlessly for not getting anything when he got to the NBA

    Tip of the cap to you, Penn. Congrats. 

    And Jahvon’s not happy here anyway. Do it the Villanova way or hit the road, kid.

    ahh if only someone had posted that Penn had a great shot at the upset...oh wait I did.  

    of course knowing Jay he will go to Allen Fieldhouse and they will beat Kansas on the Saturday.  I guess nova doesn't do exams for their players.
  • The JugglerThe Juggler Behind that bush over there.Posts: 33,229
    Losing to Penn and then taking Kansas down to the wire are probably the best things that could have happened to this young Nova team. Dominating win yesterday. Feeling pretty good heading into Big East play. Go Cats.

    From 0-10 to 2-10 over the Xmas break. Explorers trending up!!!  Always help when the opposing team scores on themselves on an inbounds play. https://www.foxsports.com/college-basketball/video/1405490755845?utm_campaign=share_buttons&utm_medium=fscom&utm_term=post&utm_content=return_visit&utm_source=share_url

    Jay Wright is a fucking genius. Another team of his exceeding expectations. Unreal.

    Let's not forget about the only team in the nation with a 10 game losing streak, a 3 game winning streak, a 4 game losing streak and a 4 game winning streak. Here we go Explorers!

    this might be Jay's best job yet. Even with only one other great team in the Big East to be 10-0 is damn impressive.  they've become like Duke. they just play harder on every possession than almost every other team. and to think Nova fans were losing their patience with him before Scottie Reynolds took them to the Final 4.

    good news is if Brett Brown flames out in the playoffs Jay will be the next Sixers coach.  

    Also looks like this is it for Martelli.  What a clusterfuck of a season.  I'd put odds at 75% he is fired after this year.  Either way there is no chance he gets more than 1 more year.  he has two years left on his deal and all indications are the best is they give him a send off year like Temple did with Dunph.   New AD is not happy and was brought in with changes in mind and has already been quoted as saying how this season has not been acceptable. it's time and hopefully it shall be done.

    Yeah. Marquette's a really good team. 

    I think Booth was surprised he was so open when he was driving at the end. He looked like he didn't know what to do. Nice comeback to make it a game though.

    I thought Villanova was headed for a 25-point blowout in that first half against St. John's today. Villanova was so fluid for the first 15 minutes before St John's realized they had to show up.

    I would think that would be reviewable unless it wasn't caught until afterwards?  brutal.
