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.

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.

I think this played a factor in the championship game, you could tell that the Cards ran out of gas. Baylor had a full day rest between each game while the Cards lost their legs & gave up a 20 point lead to a good team.

Not sure if Penn State is this terrible ..... or if Paul Hewitt and Brian Gregory can't hold Josh Pastner's jock strap when it comes to offense.

I mean really.

This is the first time I've seen Georgia Tech run real half court offense against a power conference team in ages.

Pastner is actually a decent coach, an upgrade for GT at least.

GT lost, but it was nice to see stretches of competent half court offense. Especially given that they were scoring with (mostly) a bunch of nobodies that wouldn't start at any ACC school other than Boston College.

Good job Pitt of giving another ACC up yours to Maryland.

The ACC-B1G challenge stands at 2-2 right now.

ACC winners: FSU, Pitt
B1G winners: Penn State, Northwestern
