Saturday Night Fever: Conference Tournament Update

March 15th, 2008

Some thoughts on an exciting Championship Week Saturday.. with an eye on the Big Dance:

- Tulsa learned in a big way this morning that Memphis owns the CUSA. Having won 10 of 13 games, and with 20 overall, the Golden Hurricanes are hoping they've done enough to impress the NIT selection committee. Regardless, the emergence of 7-0 big man Jerome Jordan is a great sign for the future.

March 6th, 2008

The “Curse” has returned…Kent State, Indiana and Stephen F. Austin all lost last week in games that they should have won…okay, maybe not the Hoosiers. But still, all the good vibes that last week’s “Stretch” gave these teams is now gone. So, who will be given the “kiss of death” this week?

Daily Poll: Best Non-BCS Conference?

Daily Dribble: High-Major Power Ranking

December 5th, 2007
Last year, I started doing monthly power rankings divided by the BCS, High-Major, and Mid-Major monikers.  I’m continuing that trend once again, starting with the “High-Majors”, which I define to include the A10, CAA, CUSA, MVC, MWC, and WAC.  I’m not suggesting that the A10 might not be better than the Big Ten this year, or that a league like the Horizon isn’t better than the WAC (which is real bad right now), or anything like that.. I use these grouping simply for ease and consistency.

Senior Alvarado Parker is averaging 14 and 10 after two games, including a double-double in a blow out win over Rice.
