    Buffalo nearly defeats U Conn

    This game proves the parity that exists in men's college basketball this season. The number 2 team struggles against the Bulls? I really believe any team out there can beat any team if they play the right game.

    I only bring this up since people seem to want to downplay the UNI win the other night. In basketball, any win you get against D1 competition is a big deal, particularly on the road.

    I think North Carolina might be playing at a whole other level right now. I haven't seen a team yet that looks like they can hang with them.

    ACC making the BTN look like it needs to broadcast a different conference.

    Re: Buffalo nearly defeats U Conn

    Any given day. That's something I love about college basketball. In a sense, it's the Everyman sport.

    There is a chance every game that any team could win, if things go their way. With team sizes, every school (Gonzaga!!!) has a chance to build a monster program. Every school can have the opportunity to compete for the ultimate prize.

    Some schools have advantages, like exposure, tradition, etc.; but everybody has a chance, any given day. That's what America is all about.

    I got a little nostalgic there. Thanks for starting this thread!

    Nobody can, but somebody will.

    I completely agree about UNC. They are scary good and just physically on a whole different level. Don't they have like 10 McD AAs on the roster?

    Maybe they can schedule the NBA Oklahoma City team.

    Re: Buffalo nearly defeats U Conn

    That game had such a frustrating ending. Buffalo ended up goofing around with the ball, only to have their post guy let the pass bounce off his belly under the hoop. It could have easily gone to OT.

    Wouldn't be much of a game, UNC would blow them out of the water.
