RE: Open Thread -- 2016-17 Men's Basketball
Almost hard to believe Pitino is starting year 16 for UofL. Since 1944 (73 years) we have had 4 coaches and one of them was for only 4 years before having to retire due to health (had been assistant for years before that). Hickman for 23 years (44-67), Dromo 4 years (67-71), Crum 30 years (71-01) and now Pitino 16 years (01-17).

All ACC teams are in the top 70 except for GT and BC. GT will soon get in the top 100.

Miami has exceeded my expectations already this year. We look so talented, it's unbelievable.

ND is 5-0 and just beat Colorado and Northwestern to win the Legends Classic at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NY.

It looks like Mark Farrell, while not in the class of Jarian Grant and Demetrius Jackson, can handle the point guard position for ND.

Who came up with this stupid, F'd up schedule in the Battle 4 Atlantis? Louisville played at 9:30, the 4th & last game of the day, & finished after midnight after playing OT. Their reward for winning is a 2:30 tipoff, second game of the day, against Wichita St of whom played in the early season on Wednesday. So Wichita St gets about a 24 turnaround while Louisville gets almost 14 1/2 hours. Why do the losers get the night session? This is crazy!

Louisville beat Old Dominion 68-62 in OT.

I think ND is the fifth best ACC team this year so far and should be ranked in the Top 20.

Great respect for Coach Brey and how he continues to find a way to win.

The answer to your question is obviously a combination of TV and Thanksgiving.

It's definitely tv, with AXS & ESPN wanting Louisville & Michigan St games. AXS airing the night games on Wednesday & Thursday while ESPN is airing the early sessions on Thursday.

It looks like the Heels are going to be pretty good this year, they were beating Wisconsin by 20+ in a Badger induced slow down game to win the Maui tournament. The final margin was 15.
We'll know for sure soon. Carolina has games scheduled with Indiana and Kentucky within the next three weeks.
Go Heels!
