    Re: best shot advancing to final 4?

    I wonder how hurt Embiid really is or if maybe they're covering up academic issues?

    Re: best shot advancing to final 4?

    I think KSU has a difficult 1st round match up. However, if I were in their place, I'd be thinking - "Get by UK and, wow, were in luck - playing the weakest #1 - very, very winnable."


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    a lot of us holding our breath, yes.
    ku, no embiid, they are good not elite.
    isu, lack of depth will catch-up sooner or later.
    baylor, um, i'm far from a fan, but they have lots of important variables working for them.

    In the past month the depth has increased. Not sure this is a factor as much as some think anymore.

    He just changed his major to Finance last semester and is doing well academically. Is practicing and could probably play Friday. Shocked if he doesn't play Sunday.

    You really think KANSAS would sit their best player (one of) over an academic issue?

    Re: best shot advancing to final 4?

    I think ISU certainly has a shot. They are playing their best basketball right now. I'd give Okie State a decent shot too. They have some really good players in Brown, and Forte to go with Smart.

    I think that will depend on how the refs call that game. As physical as KSU is, they might foul themselves out of it.

    He probably did when he saw the 3 point line painted on his court the first time. Ruined the game he invented.

    Re: best shot advancing to final 4?

    Man I really don't get the national love for New Mexico and everyone having them beating Kansas. Kansas already beat them by like 17pts when they weren't playing all that well. They had two players get 24pts each and not much else. Even without Embiid I don't think Kansas struggles that much until Elite Eight. Has everyone forgotten about this gut named Wiggins (although I think Ellis and Nadir are as important)?

    How may of the potential courts will ISU play on that are the BIG stadiums like Jerry World in Dallas. A stat a couple years ago showed 3 point shooting averages drop significantly in the huge airspace of the domes.

    According to Nate Silver, it's KU, then ISU, then Okie State, then Baylor.
