How is Kentucky in the National Championship of that??? Coach Cal has never heard of GPA.




Kentucky has shown an amazing ability to keep players eligible, which is what the APR measures. I suspect there is a fair amount of fraud, with friendly profs giving passing grades to players who do no work. But I can't prove it.

Loyola vs. George Mason in the CBI:

Lehigh?




CBI apparently has been turned down by dozens I'd schools - likely by Boston, Navy, and Lehigh (surprisingly). Loyola has a losing record and was the PL's #7 seed. What a great tournament!





The CBI 16-team field inclues five teams with losing records in mediocre conferences:

Coastal Carolina (200 Pomeroy ranking)
Hampton 306
Illinois Chicago 245
Utah Valley 190
Loyola 251

Also included are:

MO- Kansas City 223
Eastern Washington 188
Green Bay 185
Stony Brook 212

No teams with Pomeroy rankings better than 100.

GMU has to be the favorite. I wonder how they will draw for this fraud of a tournament. I think it's time for the NCAA to eliminate tournaments whose sole goal is to allow teams to buy publicity and a couple of extra weeks of practice.





The CIT, which traditionally has been a 32 team tournament, could only find 26 teams willing to participate this year despite inviting a lot of very mediocre teams. Had Bucknell not been on spring break, no doubt their intramural champion would've got an invitation.

Do both the home and away team pay to participate in CIT?

Probably all Communications majors. Probably not many bio-med engineers on their roster.

Hmmm....my undergrad was communications and Sociology...but thanks. I could not have been a bio-med engineer either. I think the Bucknell roster has a history major as well as non-engineering majors, but I get your point.

No offense intended toward communication majors, but it does seem to be a common choice at the basketball factories. Nana is a double major in history and education and two time PL all-academic team member.

This is Bucknell. No majors are easy.
