NCAA Résumé/Non-Conference Discussion


#61

Villanova in a BATTLE down ONE at home to CREIGHTON with less than 2 minutes LEFT.


#62

Tie game. 32 seconds left. Nova ball. This is where champions are made.


#63

Providence now 13-10 (3-7); that victory is probably on the verge of dropping to Q3 status.


#64

Nova about to escape in OT


#65

Nice win for Nova against a top 50 kenpom team.


#66

Villanova down one at Marquette with less than 15 seconds and the ball.


#67

Wow, one of the worst final possessions I’ve ever seen. Not even hyperbole.


#68

Thought Booth had a layup there, once he passed it up the possession was doomed.


#69

Even if he was worried about getting blocked it seemed like a floater would’ve been a totally fine option there.


#70

Or kick it out to the pick and pop. “Worst possession ever” seems based on the result more than the action.


#71

I think if you consider the defense by Marquette it might be. They messed the switch up so bad and gave Booth a clean path right to the basket.


#72

Having an open shot attempt, not taking it, then pivoting around for a couple seconds before passing it out to a guy who has no clue what to do and doesn’t even get a shot off in time is one of the worst final possessions I’ve seen.


#73

Yeah, I guess I think more about the initial play when people say that. As in a bad possession is one where you never get into an action that should work. But yes, the result was awful :wink:


#74

Yeah I mean more just like “wtf just happened.”

It was set up well, agreed.


#75

Sorry for dominating this thread, but South Carolina is up 5 against Arkansas with 8 minutes left in a pretty entertaining game. They just went on a 22-4 run. SEC Network.

update: USC wins 77-65. Arkansas was kenpom top 50, nice win. They’re now 7-3 in the SEC.


#76

Providence went into MSG and beat the Johnnies by 14. Yay.


#77

What a weird season for Providence.


#78

UNC lets one get away from them and loses to UVA at the Dean Dome. Big call overturned a three-pointer that would’ve put the Heels up by three but it pretty clearly was still in Coby White’s hand when the shot clock expired.


#79

UNC had two tough breaks on shot clock expirations, the other being a half of play at the end of the first half that (correctly, barely) overturned an easy layup.
