TGIF, 'Nova Nation! One more day to get through until we're back in action against St. John's at Madison Square Garden. Am I worried about this game? Hell no. And you wouldn't be either if you watched these guys slop their way through a double-digit loss to Georgetown, who lost by 18 to Providence, who we beat by 30.
So essentially if we use the transitive property, we should win by somewhere between 50-60, and I'm probably being generous. Right BosshogHazzard?
And now, the "news."
Bracketology: Villanova a 3-seed | SBNation.com
Apparently Dobber isn't a huge fan of the Big East. Villanova as a 3, Creighton as a 5, and Georgetown and Xavier a 8s. You would think that the conference champion, especially if it's 'Nova, is a lock for a 2-seed. Oh well, we'll change your tune!
Kevin Love torches Dante Cunningham, J.J. Barea | ESPN
Love had some choice words for Cunningham, who along with J.J. Barea sat and sulked at the end of the bench while the rest of the team talked during a timeout. The T-Wolves seem a little dysfunctional to me - but I agree with Love. I expect more from Cunningham, and I'm surprised to hear he was doing this.

And oh my God, yes they did! Double overtime, on the road at Butler! I think this sort of puts them on near-level ground with us by the transitive property. That goes both ways apparently.
