Nova with one of the more dominant NCAA runs in history

Assuming this holds up, they’ll have won every game by double digits, with the closest (again, assuming this holds up) a 12 point Elite Eight win over Texas Tech and a Sweet Sixteen win over WVa by the same margin. Two blowouts in the Final Four. I’ve been very much on the “everyone sucks” bandwagon […]

Top 10 CBB Coaches Heading Into 2017-2018

The coaches, due to early tourney losses and failed end of season peaking, have moved to much more competitive preseason scheduling to gain better insight into their team performance with time to adjust. In addition the gains from seating calculations. Both coaches […]
