..............which will be all for naught if Illinois can't put

Competitive games so far, in any case.

Wisconsin scored more points than the Hokies in Blacksburg on December
1st... that wasn't part of the Challenge?  I was disappointed in what I
saw, from an officiating standpoint... really, really ticky-tack (for
both sides, mind you, not saying either side got an advantage).

Well, I made a poast regarding that particular issue a few threads
up.....but, yeah.  For some reason it seems like officials go into
brain-vaporlock whenever they see Bo Ryan on the sidelines, and even
moreso when they see Bo "Rat Face Weasel" Ryan on the one sideline,
and Tom Izzo on the other.

Yeah, of course.  Duh.

Meanwhile, Illinois had a chance to tie it up in the final seconds but
couldn't get a shot off.

Mostly close games...could this be the breakout year for the
B10?!  Not real likely -- UNC looks unbeatable, and a good
Wake team should take Indiana at home.  At best MSU might be
able to pull of an upset at home against a Hansbrough-hobbled
UNC, but don't bet on it.  Duke is still undefeated in the
challenge, and sits atop the B10 this year with a 2-0 record.

You gotta figure Miami holds its 14 point lead if its leading
score doesn't pull a serious bonehead, but kudos to tOSU for
fighting back on the road.  Iowa and Illinois snatch defeat
from the jaws of victory, while ***ia forgot to show up on
offense.

It still amazes me what K can get out of this motley crew.
Fortunately there are five players capable of stepping up
on any given night, and last night it was Singler, and for
a change Scheyer.  Henderson couldn't throw the ball in
the ocean, but did get nine rebounds and two blocks, not
bad for a guard.

Two loss Purdue is a lot better than they showed last night,
but when you get out rebounded 49-29 by a team that plays
help man defense almost exclusively, that's a lack of hustle
and desire.  The players were the culprits, but I'd tag this
loss squarely on the coach.

Zoubek continues to start, foul, and somehow not suck.  Eight
rebounds in 11 minutes is eggactly what we need from him; a
couple of baskets is just icing on the cake.  McClure continues
to be an invaluable role player, and watching him nail a wide
open three with confidence was the best sign I saw all game.
Duke didn't look all that great -- Purdue just wasn't making
plays last night.

Pocius is apparently out of the main rotation, with Plumlee
and Williams getting spot minutes at the ends of each half,
mostly because of foul trouble -- but at least they are
getting some time when it counts.  An eight man roatation
with two or three spot players is a luxury Duke hasn't seen
in a long, long time.

It will almost be amusing watching Plumlee in a game where
we need another big, like say UNC. He's gonna get his ***
kicked.

And just for Mr. Grumphf -- Pomeroy says we have the sixth
best defense in the nation.  Offense, not so much.  That is
our achilles heel.

Purdue was outshot at the FT line 46-5 a couple of nights earlier vs.
Oklahoma, in what may be the most poorly officiated NCAA hoops game
ever. Coming out a little passively vs. Duke might be related to
this...

Sure, that could have been a factor.  Perdue actually did have
a bit of an advantage on fouls, though they did catch up in the
final minutes with intentional non-intentional fouls.

In fact, if in the previous game they were getting nailed heavily
for over the back, that would help explain the rebounding.  But
not totally, even if Duke is better than usual at rebounding this
year.  Getting outrebounded by 20 is a trouncing on the boards.

Yeah, if Illinois had pulled it out there might have been a
chance this year. It is disheartening when Kansas has a shorter
winning streak against KSU than the ACC does in the challenge...

Well, Penn State just did their job to keep it matchmatically possible
for the Big Ten to win, despite their best job of missing as many free
throws as possible down the stretch, among them a play that involved
pulling away from an easy layup, getting fouled, and then missing the
FT.  And when Tech hit that shot of the top of the backboard, I
thought they might pull it off.
