Hard to fault the coach on this one. Was making $157K at FGCU and gets over $1M to coach in LA. That said, if he can make USC relevant in that market he will be earning his money. And tell me his "model" wife wasn't also in on this decision for her career too. Remember Wayne Gretzky, I bet all thin...

Anthony Davis was a once in a generation type college player with his defensive skills. The kid literally altered half the shots that the other team took. I don't think they will be nearly as good as the team that won the title in '11-'12, but still good enough to make it to the final four or even ...

I think I like the Dingle answer best, but there are many past guys that could be used here as glue guys. It's what stands out about Cal and his coaching tree, Cal grew his entire rep on hard nosed, want it more, play above yourself teams but once he started being able to get McD's all Americans, he...

Thinking DK should be fired ignores everything factual detail that would be involved in that decision, financial, who's available, the risk with hiring an unproven assistant. But thinking DK is anything more than a mediocre coach based on results shows the same lack of reason, so lets just hope he i...

seriously carter had his feet set and weber was moving and had a foot off the ground, they called us for the block and them for the charge. it was an 8 point swing in their favor, how are more people not outraged over those calls? One of the most lopsided second halfs I have seen in college ball......

^ Currently wrestling with my own self loathing. FirstRow has it- but do they really have it? Risky to wait 'til tip to find out. Yeah, I'm off to a bar, hopefully the margarita place down the road has it. Don't worry, you'll be happier in 3 hours. I got a very good feeling about today, for no real...

"Havoc" didn't work last night, it doesn't do much away from their home court. All of you need to stop being so negative. Umass can win this game if they play with their heads. A win here puts Umass in the NCAA Tournament!!! They better be fired up! They made a Final Four with it without being on t...

He still has Lasalle in his last four in. If we win tomorrow, our resumes is unquestionably better than Lasalle's. Of the four sites I checked, not one has us in and LaSalle out. The only guy that has us in (Palm) has LaSalle in also. Two other have LaSalle in but not us (5 total A-10 teams), and o...

Rebounding = Desire. I hope that we have more of both against Temple. The guards stepped up, big time. Trey was magic shooting in second half. Quite a performance by a frosh. Chazz, perhaps feeling hometown pressure (?), took some bad shots, but his hustle and assists were very important. He did en...

Kinda surprised by how light the banter is on here regarding the actual game. Maybe some folks have emotionally checked out but I'm fully back in a state of utterly delusional behavior and can't wait for tomorrow night. Granted, I kinda think we'll win two and get everyone excited again, only to lo...

Where are all the anti-Derek people?? Not sure what the point of this is? Just enjoy the win. You got the point 78. Stop lying. They don't show up when we win. Did they just beat Duke? Did they beat an at large tourney team even? Great road win, but this is like storming the court after beating an ...

I implore everyone to read the Masslive article on the game. Down one, 17 seconds left and the game plan was to get fouled. I've watched pro and college basketball for 50 years and this is the first time I've ever heard of a coach setting up an end of the game play (down one) with the intention of ...

Your a D1 head coach and can't draw up a frigin play?? Ugh and try wouldn't pass the ball down low to Cady in the 2nd half.. Honestly sick to...
