College hoops kicks off today. Baylor already in the win column with an easy victory over Mississippi Valley State.

I, for one, am glad they scheduled a couple break-in games before the State Farm Champions Classic. That seemed to make for some ugly basketball when it kicked off the season.

Early final 4 predictions?

Purdue - Gonzaga
some seriously bad basketball. Gonzago loses badly second time. Purdue starting two true Fr at the guard spots.

Everyone on the team pages. Probably not much general discussion. I'll have to make this the Purdue/B10 thread :D
Duke with a new coach and THREE Fr 7ft centers two of which fouled out trying to guard Edey but still a good win.

Good early showing with two true Fr at the guard spot and maybe it was camera angle, but I don't think Edey is the tallest guy on the team. I dont think they have enough to beat Michigan. They'll compete for a 3-4 seed in the NCAA though.

I imagine you’re riding pretty high right now. Great win for Purdue hoops today and the football team plays for the B1G championship on Saturday. Images of Joe Barry Carroll, Jerry Sichting, Mark Hermann and Keena Turner dancing around in your head - haha.

First and foremost a Toledo fan. and they've (football, M and W BBall) been performing less than expected. Still on board though.

Not sure I'm looking forward to the shellacking Michigan is going to put on. But this was a surprise weekend for a developing Purdue basketball team. Painter's team are so old school Indiana, they're fun to watch even when out talented. If these year's B10 teams match up to the talent level of those Carroll, Sichting years, it will be special. Several all-timers in the B10 about that time.

lol, Purdue may never be the best but they entertain. At some point in any game, I literally smh.

I'd say there's at least a 50% shot, some game Edey will foul out the entire starting rotation of a team. Why they don't just play 5 on 4 and dare Purdue to get the pass in, and maybe get some turn-overs in the process?

NC is a mess early in the season. I'm not completely surprised. I have no idea how they made it to finals last year. They weren't a good team last year and are proving they are average this year.
