He certainly is, I think he'd be a great speculator for a team to burn a second round pick on purely to own his draft rights- but right now you can see him pretty much stepping into the starting PG spot for a major European team on some decent dollars.

I was impressed with Gonzaga in that game, they are a solid, solid team this year.

For all the talk of Bruiser being a smart player, he sure makes a lot of dumb decisions.

There are a handful of elite teams this year, and then so much parity from about 10-25 and beyond. It's crazy. This would be the perfect year for a team like MU or UW to sneak into the final 4 depending on what top seeds are in their region.

The Badgers aren't going to make the tournament, IMO.

This was the first game I've watched all year. I like Dekker.

It is too bad Evan Anderson turned out to be nothing after a ton of hype when he was a young player.

He is definitely not the prodigy he was supposed to be but he may be their big guy by default next year. He'll at least spell Kaminsky, you'd think.

They'll make the tourney for sure, ton of good wins against higher ranked opponents and fairly easy schedule down the stretch.

Today basically showed how good the Badgers are when they shoot well. Undefeated when shooting over 45%, which isn't even scorching. I realize this team is limited offensively, but they'll be in every game, hopefully this can be the year they get hot in the tourney from 3.

I'll admit that I questioned them making the tourney this, but ever since the start of big ten play they seem like a different team.

I feel like with the parity in college bball atm, UW or MU can easily make a run. I think both teams can beat any team they face, especially UW.

Pretty much everything to do with his vast improvement offensively is that Vander can finally hit jumpers consistently, even with his his still funky shooting mechanics. I'll admit to being surprised by just how much more his jumper is falling because i seriously questioned whether he'd ever be a consistent scorer unless he made a big change to those shooting mechanics. He always had been unselfish offensively, a solid passer, good at slashing the paint, and a quality defender.

I really gotta hand it to both Buzz and Bo Ryan. Going into the season and after watching early games for each team, for the first time in awhile, i had real doubts as to whether either team would make the big dance. Yet, here Marquette sits 18-6 and 9-3 in conference play, while Wisconsin is 18-8/9-4. Each has at least some shot of winning their conference, but odds being against it.

Given i'm old enough to remember both programs being in extended stretches of irrelevancy, it's so nice to now see both being run by coaches that each year are a near lock to put teams on the floor which win 20 plus games and make the NCAA Tournament. Not only that, both coaches have a nice recruiting class coming in next year.

Good to see Amadeo Della Valle get some PT for Ohio State today. That makes 5 true freshman from Findlay Prep last year getting time this year in D1: Anthony Bennett (UNLV) Brandon Ashley (Arizona) Dominic Artis (Oregon) Winston Shephard (San DIego St). And the straw that stirred their drink last year is still playing at Findlay, PG Nigel Williams-Goss. He's a solid player to keep an eye on in the future. Not a top of the draft guy but should be decent.

Both have gone to back-to-back Sweet 16's too. I wouldn't be surprised if they each made it 3 trips in a row this year.

That was one of the most intense college basketball games I've ever seen.

I think that Oladipo guy is going in the top 5. He's like Wade was at MU.
