You had me going there for a second...

...UCONN did NOT beat KU, (Kansas University). They beat UK, (University of Kentucky). BIG difference.

Anyone who has any designs of a Big East title this year has to go thru Pitt for that to happen and Pitt is LOADED my friends. Remember the name Talib Zanna.

Almost all of them have been busts:

Emeka Okafor (No. 2 pick overall in 04) - Sucks

Ben Gordon (No. 3 pick overall in 04) - Sucks

Hasheem Thabeet (No. 2 pick overall in 09) - Sucks

I wouldn't say they suck, but they aren't stars in the NBA.

Btw, no NBA player "sucks".

Ok, they don't suck, but they definitely didn't live anywhere up to their draft statuses. I guess "bust" is a better label?

No, correction there Hasheem Thabeet sucks right now. Gordon and Okafor are solid players.

Sad that UConn is now referred to as a "giant killer" instead of a giant. A few years ago, beating MSU or UK wouldn't had been considered such a huge upset.

Big East is the real deal.

Marquette, the projected #9 in the BE, lost to #1 Duke by 5 and #22 Gonzaga by 3. Both are projected to win their conferences.

More amazingly, UCONN upset those teams and they were the projected #10 in the Big East!!!

LOL at Pitt being the team to beat. The next game Jamie Dixon wins will be his first. You can always count on them leaving the Big Dance (more important than regular season titles) early.

Blake Tucci, please go troll else where. If you think Okafor and Gordon are busts you need to be checked in some place.

Didn't look so hot today. 8.5 favorite losing outright in a home game pretty much.
