I only got to watch portions of the Buffalo - Arizona wipe out yesterday but good god what an effort Buffalo put on display. I couldn't believe their energy and fitness level - they were comfortable playing up and down the floor at top speed with no letup and no reduction of composure or skill level. They need to extend their strength and conditioning coach's current deal.

Regrettably, I couldn't avoid noticing that NoMich's dream of Carolina tournament supremacy has suffered a bit of a setback. The lonely Duke victory likely provided little consolation to the family.

Yeah man, it was rough yesterday. A) Central didn't win their play in game, 2) UNC-G lost even though they could've won that game, and C) State lost, but even making the NCAA tournament this year was miles beyond the expectations of the team.

UNC-G's James Dickey (from Raleigh!) was fun to watch in the first half.

Davidson also came pretty close against Kentucky.
