What a weekend of college basketball. Before we get to the links, here are a few things we learned over the last few days:
1. Rutgers is playing like a more talented version of last year's bad team. Follow this formula if you can. 2007-08 RU basketball team + Mike Rosario and Greg Echenique - Byron Joynes = Losses to St. Bonaventure and Lehigh + 26 first half points against St. Peter's.
2. This could be the year Gonzaga finally does something in the NCAA Tournament as a top seed, after impressive wins over Tennessee and Maryland.
3. Michigan St. is either vastly overrated or the Maryland's season will be a bigger roller coaster than the football team's.
4a. Make nothing of Louisville's loss to Western Kentucky. The Cards aren't overrated, but just going through their usual early season hardships
4b) Western Kentucky is still good despite losing Courtney Lee to the NBA.
5) A three-point contest between Kyle McAlarney and James Harden would be thrilling
And away we go...
