college basketball

Well it's that time of year again.

Here are my thoughts

Horizon League: UW-Milwaukee beat Loyola tonight and they will face Butler in the title game on Tuesday night. Butler beat UW-Green Bay. The winner gets in the tournament, the loser goes to the NIT and maybe Loyola of Chicago gets in the NIT as well. They have 19 wins.

Missouri Valley: All Illinois final between Southern Illinois and Bradley. SIU beat UNI (Northern Iowa) and Bradley beat Wichita State. The Valley will get 3 or 4 bids (SIU/Bradley, UNI, Wichita and one other team). Creighton will head to the NIT as will Missouri State (formerly SW Missouri).

Big East: they will get 6-8 teams in the tournament. Cincy may have earned a bid today by beating the Mountaineers of West Virginia.

Hey hey, Duke lost twice in a week, Wednesday at Florida State and tonight to the Tar Heels in Durham. Take that Dickie V!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With respect to the Indiana job and Steve Alford: He is their golden boy, but if they have questions about him in a big spot, then they should go after Tom Crean of Marquette. Former Izzo assistant and took Marquette to the Final 4 in 2003 (with Dwyane Wade's help).
